Fire!   10 comments

This is an image that will surely make any person pause that lives in a pyrrhic ecosystem like most of us in the western US. This is the view of the fire burning in Yosemite National Park, as seen from Washburn Point on Sunday evening, 9/7. Half Dome is clearly visible on the left side of the photograph. Tweeted by the US Department of the Interior, 9/8/14.

Watching Soccer From Hell   Leave a comment

This video surfaced today … it’s from a soccer semifinal match for the Greek Cup. The teams had just entered the pitch, and were engaging in the ceremonial photos with the refs and other team when the fans of PAOK decided to set their world on fire.

Can you imagine being in the stands around that conflagration?

Oh, and the match had to be delayed in order for the smoke to clear. The opposing team’s bench was actually set on fire.

Unbelievable.

Note to self: don’t watch soccer while in Greece.
