Jeesus Christ that was insane.  Never knew explosions are that damned quick (Hollywood's slow-mo has ruined me).

Campus police officer shot in MIT.  Too much death.  Also, anniversary of Virginia Tech shooting was a few days ago.  I've had enough of this week.

Hey it's getting worse.

All things considered, the fertilizer plant explosion was almost certainly an accident, because that shit just happens, but...

(Does anyone feel like reality's kind of breaking?

I have this feeling that stuff'll peak on Cinco de Mayo. I attribute a weird spiritual significance to that date.)

Pun intended?

This just seems to be a bad week for the news all in all.
I joked earlier with the Boston Explosion, then the Waco one that "third time's a charm", but I wasn't hoping to be right.

No, because it was an ammonia nitrate afaik. Not even an unintentional pun.

People have put dollar values on every other natural resource, including water. As much of a douche as he sounds like, is it really that surprising to hear it?

If you mean surprised that he was stupid enough to allow himself to be quoted saying that on camera, then I completely agree.

RE: Boston stuff, I'm glad that one is down (and thus not going to hurt any more people) but I can hope they can take the second one alive and get some information out of him about the bombing.  Also, between politicians already rushing to leverage this situation for political gain and the conservative sites my father reads picking apart every quote they can from the bombers and/or family members to get an "HOMG MUSLIMS ARE TEH EVIL" reaction I'm getting really sick of people--across the political spectrum--using this tragedy as an excuse to push their shit.

As far as I can remember water is, in a global sense, becoming more scarce as the population of Earth rises.  However, that's an issue for us as Human beings to rise up and figure out a solution so as many people as possible can have free, clean water.  Not hoard/privatize so only the privileged can have it.

I'm getting really sick of people--across the political spectrum--using... tragedy as an excuse to push their shit.

Kind of like how a few hollywood people got their twitter acct hacked and some congressional douchenozzle was all like, "Hey this is why we need cispa gaiz!"  cuz fuck constituents, right?

2/3 of earth is comprised of water....you'd think some environmentalists would figure out how to make it drinkable instead of converting our own piss back to drinkable water. Priorities...

Unfortunately, while doable, desalting water is quite expensive.  They're working on engineering solutions to make it cheaper, but these things take time.
