Haha, things are going ok. Nothing major going on as far as I know though interestingly the magma body under my current residence in the US has been growing restless. Hopefully there'll be an eruption soon, I'm sure the few thousand inhabitants will be eager for something exciting to happen!

Guess that's something for the next generation to be "looking forward" to.

It would be nice to fill the Earth's
atmosphere with ash clouds, and possibly get
some "global cooling" underway!

Perhaps though some might say that it would have a side effect of decreasing various kinds of rainfall. Unfortunately while some places have too much water some places don't have enough. Maintaining the sunlight and reducing greenhouse gases is probably a safer bet. I'm slightly fearful to look in the forums and see who's arguing what.

a keen sense of humor are getting downright

Well, I guess there's some things you don't
screw around with, and active volcanoes
would be one of them. Unless, of course,
you have the knowledge and common sense to
know how to deal with an "unpredictable" science.
