So, while out interwebbing my day away (a common – and, at times, dangerous – hobby of mine) I stumbled upon an interesting theory. A theory that will affect our very lives in the near future.
And, as with most good theories, it involves drinking copious amounts of urine.

Have I got a whale of a tale for you today, dear reader. (And I assure you, that is only the first of many, many whale-based puns to come).

As the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to…spill…oil…scientists from across the globe are frantically looking for an adequate means to cork the decidedly environmentally unfriendly disaster.
One of these ideas is being put forth by those lovable Russians; their solution? Nuke the bastard.

Many people might not know this about me, but environmental and energy issues are something of an interest of mine, so that’s what we’ll be discussing today!
For as long as mankind has had power, we seem to be trying to develop new and interesting ideas to create it.

Science Fiction has made many claims for what the future holds in store for us. Sci-Fi writers have comprised lists of nearly millions of brand-spanking new inventions that have made life easier for those in the future, but, let’s face it – would probably royally screw things up back here in the real world.

Fear. It is the great divider. It is what separates ordinary from the extraordinary. It can reduce the greatest hero to a gibbering mass of terrified jelly, and when overcome, can elevate the lowliest peasant to heights of courage only dreamed about by mortal man. It descends into the deepest, darkest recesses of our souls and exposes our true nature for all the world to see – utilizing evil images, emotions and visions to tear us down from the inside. Fear takes on the form of whatever disturbs us the most, and taps into our cultural and emotional psyche to become objectified forms of the things that frighten us the most.
We fear what can not be explained; we fear the things that we do not understand; and sometimes, we fear things that are just plain weird.

The Mongolian Death Worm, a cryptid long believed to be a hoax, has been discovered by Kingston scientist Dr. Raymond Gavan. It was Dr. Gavan’s curiosity that brought he and his motley crew of adventure seekers to the Gobi Desert; it would be his obsession that brought them to disaster.
