Absolutely GORGEOUS - geography in action

What does the island nation of Tonga bring to mind? To me, it evokes gorgeous little green jewels of islands dotted in an azure ocean under blue sunny skies...

But see what's been happening around there - an undersea volcanic eruption that this throwing out a plume of steam, ash and debris a 100 feet into the air!

Ignorexia Verbosa

The perfect term to describe the affliction of your typical TV talk show host and/or news reader (doesn't matter daily, weekly, daytime, nighttime, political, doesn't matter which TV/radio channel, etc).

I LOVE this term! :D

Picked it up from Ed Brayton's "
Dispatches from the Culture Wars"
