    And if the stupid meteor had taken out Texas, I think we'd all be better off.

      I mean the hit to the tech industry, oil & gas, medical research, and all the hard work of the TX Dems with little support from outside TX, not to mention the body count would totally have been worth it.

      Thanks for the fiery death wish.

      program I would have made it to the uranium enrichment plant there. But I did spend a lot of time in Novouralsk a few hours north of there by car.

      I had a co-worker in Idaho who had grown up in Chelyabinsk and whose parents still worked there though. Irina could field-strip an AK-47 in 30 sec blindfolded. Gotta respect those Young Pioneers, lol.

      Moderation in most things.

      would also kill everyone in the United States in the ensuing firestorm and reduce the rest of the world to starvation and war in impact winter.

      Pour yourself into the future.
