That's funny, Sealander... I have the same problem!

I guess it's like water: if you find you didn't have enough the first time, you need to store MUCH more for the second disaster.

Sorry, a perhaps pevish visit to a pet peeve:

"Event pre-thinking"

"Pre-thinking" would be what? Could it possibly be an awkward way of expressing the concept of "planning"? Or maybe it is an effort to ascertain the relevance of some instinct-level brain function that occurs before conscious thinking comes online?

Okay, I feel better. Sorry.

It's alright, Dweste! *pat**pat**pat* It's probably just the moon.

Yes, planning... I guess.

Silly-speak is supposed to sound what my Mom referred to as "high-falutin'"

It's like the news media telling about how something is going to be "impacted by" something else, when he really just means 'affected'. Unless we're going to be hit by an asteroid, in which case "impacted" would probably be correct.
