Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

Those poor folks keep getting it over and over and over.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Turned out to be all hype.  The tsunamis were about a foot high and little if any damage has been reported.

The media was just salivating at being able to run more anti-nuke stories.
