Re: I'm on a tropical island
Why is this posted on Freespace Conversion? :wtf: I guess I'm not getting the joke.

By the way, I don't like that picture. It reminds me of those tropical hurricanes I saw on the news and the Discovery Channel. :shaking:

EDIT: I'm sorry if this comment sounds a bit weird.

Screw you and your Hawaii vacation. :|

At least I'm going to Universal Studios Orlando in July. Ha!

Despite a recent cold spell (and by cold spell, I mean between 55 and 65), the weather here in Nebraska has been, dare I say, warm and tolerable. :)
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Re: I'm on a tropical island
Whoa. There's still oil leaking from the hulk of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor, nearly 70 years later.

It's been contaminated with seawater so they never salvaged it, and trying to pump it out now would probably collapse part of the hull, so they're just leaving it there. Apparently there's over half a million gallons of oil left in there--at a rate of two quarts a day, it'll probably be leaking for a long, long time.

Re: I'm on a tropical island
So that's what the memorial looks like.

Ah, makes me think... my first-ever painted ship model was that of the Arizona.

Re: I'm on a tropical island
That's the best part about Hawaii. You can have a volcanic eruption, but nobody panics.

Re: I'm on a tropical island
In that first picture with the frozen lava on the road, I see a white dot near the top of the black frozen lava that is probably that 'road closed' sign from far away.

Edit: I looked again and the mountain range lines up pretty accurately in both pics, so I'm pretty sure that dot is that sign. But it would have made more sense to put that sign at the bottom where the road ends from the solidified lava blockage.

Except the sign was put up after the 1990 lava flow, and the lava around it is from 2003. :shaking:

So anyway I'm back on the mainland now. See my Facebook page for pics.
