This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Hell's top tourist attraction.
If you haven't seen pictures of the Chilean volcano erupting, here's a link to several at Talking Points Memo. Some of the photos, especially the night time shots, are more beautiful and awe-inspiring than the best special effects I've ever seen in any Big Stuff Blowing Up movie, but I don't think anyone wants to risk getting up close and personal to get a better view.
Nature at its most remarkably nasty. The most devout skeptics might scoff at the idea of angry gods, but I get the feeling that seeing this in person, angry gods would be a really convincing explanation.
