Easy reference for you comic geeks!

A worthwhile story for sure, the impending climatic changes are sure to be expensive, so I've already started saving.
I noted some members of a outdoor survival school in Italy spent 27 hours building a 3.5 ton chocolate igloo. Perhaps in the future this will be the most cost effective (and delicious) way of surviving nature's wrath? Was that a part of the Kyoto agreement?

Anyway, looking forward to tales of the Fallcon!

Mr. Ninja,

Was it Swiss chocolate? Swiss chocalate, while Deeeelicious! melts easy. I think the survivalist/choco lover may have to default to bland ol' American chocolate. Hey! Maybe that is W's true consiracy, he's going to make America strong again by cornering the chocolate market. Brilliant!

According to an anonymous source at Halliburton, the chocolate was 'Special Dark'. Also listed in the construction costs were 5 'pulse nuetron generators' and 'life cycle management services' with expenses totalling over $18 billion, of which $26 billion will be reimbursed by the US Army...

Mr. Ninja,

I think you are correct and I think we are glad to find that our resources are being spent well. Dark chocolate I belive has flavonoids which like green tea is Oh So Good for ya.

Also, the costs paid to Haliburton are obviously a bargain; 5 'pulse nuetron generators' are much more expensive these days. The nuetron market as at an all time high. As for life cycle managment services; they should not be confused with "lyfe cycle managment services" who are of course a bunch of nut cases. Life cycle managment is of utmost importance and as their new head of business development I must say a bargain at any price.

I recommend reading Michael Crichton's State of Fear, its maybe hogwash, but its maybe not. I suggest we all stock up on spaceships, in case we need to find another planet to live on. If we get lucky, the Galactica will get here just in time to save us.
