top To Really Cut Emissions, We Need Electric Buses, Not Just Electric Cars
> The 15-30 largest container ships in the world (depending on who's estimates you're using) produce more pollution than all the cars combined.
...and one volcano puts out more CO2 than all of the world's industry combined...and turning on a fluorescent light burns more electricity than it does leaving it on for four hours....
Why do people keep falling for this? Do they have no concept of the numbers involved, or does people's brains just break down when faced with differences of more than two orders of magnitude?

Well, speaking of caffeine, there was a story on the news last Friday about caffeine powder making its way into the market and onto the radar by way of some overdoses.
The powder comes out in a packet which advises the recommended dose: 1/16th of a teaspoon, which makes it very easy to overdose on, especially if measured out with common household implements.

I've dealt with a few of them over the last few years, it can be very entertaining.
The way to do it is to set up a virtual machine with a packet sniffer on it. If you use all the old tricks that you would have learned on the helpdesk, you can even keep them on the phone while you set it up.
Here's a few of the classics to get you started;
"Yes...Ok...right...ok...right..yes...<15 minutes later>...no, sorry, I'll never remember all this. The computers in the other room: If I go in there, would you show me how to do it?...."
"it's a terrible slow old thing, let me start it up <ten minutes later...talking about the grandkids, especially the oh-so-clever favourite who built the computer for you is an excellent way to pass the time> oh, looks like it's frozen, I'll just turn it off and start again..."
"Start button? Oh, he must mean the button on the front of the hard drive! OK...it's shutting down now...OK, it's off, now what?"<20 minutes, easy>
Once you've got it all set up, let them talk you through downloading and running the LogMeIn software on the virtual machine. don't make it too easy for them, now...Did you know the app that you download from LogMeIn is only good for five minutes? If you haven't got it running by then, you'll need to download a new one and try again! Hours of fun and excitement for you both!
So, let them connect and then use the packet sniffer to identify the IP address their connection is coming from. Also, here's a fun tip - the local session takes priority over the remote session, so if you are moving the mouse, even just a little bit, they can't! Fun!
Once you've had your fun, and you have their IP address, you can let the authorities know, and their internet connection will become a very interesting place. Briefly.

The FEMA coffins are easy. Do you know how quickly a few hundred thousand dead bodies becomes a major, MAJOR health hazard?
No need to dream up any New World Order conspiracy theory, either. One large earthquake and tsunami will do just fine.
Or you could remind yourself that a volcano with the ability to wipe out half of Seattle with less than an hour's warning is considered one of the most dangerous volcanos in the world today.
Or, for an extra shit and/or giggle, consider the consequences if the 1918 flu strain were to happen again...How many coffins would you suddenly need to find then? Bit late to be placing 50,000 unit orders at that stage of the game...
