Ashes to ashes 

This is the daily post for Friday, October 24, underway somewhat late.

Today's glimpse of the future column of links takes us to the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The name says it all, really, except for the Kamchatka part (wouldn't you know it? that's where all the action is lately, including the scary pic on the front page.) Enjoy - from a safe distance.

"Wherever I have been, I am back." 

Sorry about the hiatus. I've made a daily resolution. Now will someone please explain to me how this guy survived the fall? The New York Times (free registration required) says he had been going around telling people he could make it. Like all the stories I've seen, though, the Times takes the psychological angle: it asks why he jumped, not how he lived to tell the tale. Granted, the man himself seems as surprised as anyone. But surely there was something he thought he knew about 180-foot waterfalls that we don't know. Why, having escaped with "very minor injuries", should he take his secret to the grave?
