    I had never heard of ice volcanoes before. For those who want to know more:

    RBIoN’s statement about the Hermann bomb is misleading. The blast is from the combination of both the Hermann bomb and the Bomb Squad’s own explosives.

    one word — which doubles as a pun — regarding ice volcanoes: cool

    For the average person, turning the tap on in December rivals the effects of the ice volcano.

    Love Bug virus was just one of many in 2000 and has spawned innumerable variations since. Thanks so much.

    Unexploded bombs from long ago wars are rarer than the thousands of land mines left behind in more recent conflicts, but they can still kill, given the right circumstances. Again, thanks so much.

    A “blast” being heard five miles away isn’t extraordinary at all.

    The Love Bug emails were titled “ILOVEYOU.” I like to think that people today are harder to fool that way.

    That was a close call. May 4, 2000 was our 4th anniversary & I thought Gina had sent me a sweet message. Then I looked at the sender name, ran the virus scan & it was quarantined.

    A little while later they were talking about it on the radio.

    I knew someone at work who clicked on the link that infected his computer. Hard to believe it’s been 2 decades since.

    Wow, I forgot all about that virus. It was a nasty one.

    I wonder how big of a crater that bomb made?
