Apocalypse Now

Overheard in a high school classroom after a presentation on nuclear proliferation...

Student A: "So, if we had a nuclear war, we would have nuclear winter and we'd all die?"

Presenter: "Yeah. If Russia and the U.S. had gone to war, we all could have died. It would take 400 nuclear explosions to produce enough debris to block out the sun."

Student B: "So, how many nuclear winters have we had?"

Presenter: Dumbfounded silence at stupidity of classmate. "Ummm....none...."

This weekend the Thrashers play against the Penguins. I have center ice on my digital cable package so I am going to watch the game.

Maybe you might come too.

The game starts at 7:00.
