This picture of a van caught on a rock halfway down the side of mountain was getting passed around on chat this morning.

I've driven that road and it's really fucking scary, roads winding through cliff edges with drops thousands of feet and little between you and death but a reflector that's half covered with snow.

Cars have too much safety designed into them to be effective suicide mechanisms. I decided in college that if I was going to blow this popsicle stand I was going to go out with a bang (or earth shattering kaboom). Make a fuckton of explosives and use it to make a political/artistic statement.

Of course since I have lost my belief in reincarnation I am a lot less likely to try to acquire the fertalizer and fuel oil.

[livejournal.com profile] zombienought posted this a graph comparing job losses of this recession to other recent ones. While interesting I think this graph may be more insightful. It compares it to several more recessions and looks at percent unemployed rather than raw numbers.
