did you watch krakatoa: volcano of destruction last night on the discovery channel?
you didn't? what the hell is wrong with you?
all kidding aside, i was quite surprised by how good the show was despite it's horrible "desert storm" name. (you know, "operation: death by lahars" or "operation: pumice to the head". pretty much anything with a colon is a "desert storm" name. (no, not that kind of colon. sheesh!)) "krakatoa" was based on some survivors' diaries and logs which made for a more intriguing take on the situation than the usual "people died. it was bad. it could happen again." crap. here's a link to the diaries if you're interested. (hey, pants! make sure to click through!)
does anyone know of any good books on krakatoa? i'll even read things about anak krakatau. otherwise known as krakatau 2: back with a vengence.
ok, that's all.
