That and the light blue walls are warm and inviting. Give me five minutes in my well-worn easy chair and all the stress of work will be a distant memory. As I was relaxing and flipping through the TV channels I saw that a volcano near my house may erupt. Not only is it going to erupt, but it is predicted to be so big it may bring another ice age, but I’m not buying it.

Honestly if they could keep their story straight for more than two days it would be easier to believe anything they had to say. Looking at how much money those pseudoscientists made from all the other global crises I can only imagine this is one more attempt to grab money out of the little guy’s pocket, but not me. I’ll believe it when I…

    “But we're not equipped to monitor the sun.” Arnold protested. Arnold was putting on a good show of looking like he was lost, but Michael had the distinct impression the man was not confused in the least. “We're observing sunrise and sunset, and I'm only interested in associated phenomena around the sun at those times,” he explained. “But we've got Big Bear to give us what you want!” Michael threw up his hands. “Don't you think I've already tried getting data from them? They're as tight as a…

    relational continuity constructional units (151) used when the employee expressed that she had to go back to work. Both the mother figure and the son figure stood of to hug her, but the younger teenage daughter remained sitting. Instead, the worker standing stroked the head of the girl sitting – a nonverbal action of haptics (76) which spoke volumes. I took special notice of how each table ended their conversations. I noticed that hugging was more common between females, while a more accepted…

    "It doesn't matter who number five is. I won't be letting you hurt them," Iridian said confidently, as he began texting someone. Texting at the dinner table? How rude.
