-Earth Day, "a day that inspires awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment" (Wikipedia): April 22, with Earth Week being the previous week.

-Deepwater Horizon oil spill/BP oil spill/Gulf oil spill, one of the biggest oil spills and environmental disasters in history: April 20, Deepwater Horizon drilling rig is set ablaze by escaping methane gas from the oil well; April 22, Deepwater Horizon sinks and a oil slick appears; April 24, Coast Guard confirms that oil is gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from a deepwater oil well.

If that's not a prime example of irony, I don't know what is.

No no no true Irony is when an endcap of coffee cups fall right when the person putting them on says something about doing good and not breaking any. All but four cups broke.

I'm going off to camp tomorrow for three weeks with limited internet access. I will be suffering from LSADD (Limited Scioly Access Depression Disorder) :?

Yeah, I'm going on vacation too, sometime this summer. Not out of the country though, I don't think.

China. Cool. Have fun with the 12+ hour flight...I usually watch the in-flight movie, sleep, get frustrated with sudoku/crosswords, gag at the (disgusting) airplane food, sleep some more, and constantly try not to think about how I'm 30,000 feet up in the air.

Lol. Don't even get me started on airplane food. I prefer not to eat it in general >.> Then I'm starving when I get off. I'm going to Shanghai on August 1st! World expo w00t!
