And then there’s this…

This is a volcano filmed from the ISS. I believe it’s a Russian one from 2009. Unfortunately, I got the shot from the Telegraph, which is behind a hard paywall.

I spent some time doing an Images search of “volcano ISS” after seeing a cool gif on Twitter. There are some fantastic images there, and some videos as well.

This isn’t much of a post, though, so I’ll add a useful browser plugin. I Don’t Care About Cookies will work with any Chrome-based browser (I think there’s a Firefox version, too). It intercepts those annoying messages asking if you will accept cookies. Works a treat.

Wait, you get those too, right? I know it’s the result of an EU ruling, but I assumed websites were lazy and presented them to everyone.

There are still news sites in the US that block me because of Europe’s stupid GDPR rules.

Never send a bureaucrat to fix a technical problem.

This is something that would give me nightmares if I lived near a volcano. My sister is certain that Yellowstone is going to rise up any day now, and I’m grateful that I live a long way from Yellowstone (not that 1500 miles would make a difference if the old girl erupted).

So will y’all still be stuck with EU GDPR rules after the end of this year? Assuming the tribe does not successfully force you to beg to get back into the EU before then…

You can reduce the risk of exploding volcanoes by halting your use of plastic soda straws.
And get an electric vehicle.
And stop using fossil fuels (never mind how this one makes the previous one difficult to take advantage of).

I heard it all from a 17 year old kid from Frigidaire. She KNOWS things.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
