5-16-2012    After hearing of a Canadian driver who hit a moose and then drove 28 miles to work unaware of the accident, one-time presidential hopeful John Edwards takes the stand at his corruption trial and claims he must have rear-ended his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

5-16-2014    After two years of investigation into the mysterious lack of oxygen reported by pilots of the nearly billion dollar a copy F-22 Raptor fighter jet, defense contractor Lockheed Martin adds little flippy vent windows near the front of the canopy to bring fresh air into the cockpit. In another concession to wary pilots, full crank down windows are installed, allowing them to order fast food during in-flight refueling. The F-22 quickly becomes the most popular plane in the nation's arsenal.

Ohhh, History. :matte-motes-sunglasses-1:

 

Friday, May 18, 1980:

When we get angry, it is said that we “blow our tops.” This saying obviously came from the angry gods that make volcanoes blow their tops.

On this day in 1980, the 9,677-foot Mt. St. Helens, quiet for 93 years, became extremely angry and blew its top. The volcanic blast was five hundred times more powerful than the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima.
Steam and ash erupted more than eleven miles into the atmosphere and darkened skies in a 160-mile radius. Forest fires erupted around the volcano and burned out of control. The eruption, and those that followed, left some sixty dead and caused damage amounting to nearly three billion dollars.

Geologists said that the blast, which was felt over one hundred miles away, was probably triggered by two earthquakes. Scientists had been watching the long-dormant volcano since it first emitted some steam and ash on March 26. Eruptions occurred again on May 25 and June 12. Now that’s a long time to stay angry!

5-18-2012    Brenda Connolly rejoins the SL forums. Madelaine McMasters bets she won't last three weeks. (When Madelaine Marbach left SL for good some years back, Brenda bet she couldn't stay away three weeks. Well, I stayed away five!!!)

5-18-2044   Presidental hopeful Mark Zuckerberg withdraws from the race after pictures of him lying face down in a pile of Harvard coeds appear on Facebook.

Welcome back, Brenda!!!
