I'm not sure I get the American reference at the end... but she rocked the first song.

"The Tibetan Plateau is a vast barren face of virtually naked rock. It contains over 82 percent of the surface area of the planet over 12,000 feet high. With the rise of such a plateau, came ever growing amounts of erosion of rock on its surface. When we look at the Himalayas, most of us see a dramatic series of mountains, but Raymo saw a giant vacuum sucking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, with the rivers that drain them flushing the carbon into the sea.

The lightbulb in her head went off:  the rise of the Tibetan plateau led to the shift from a warm earth to a cold one.  And it did so by pulling carbon from the air."

Apparently George Washington was the wealthiest person to serve as President of the US.

 #O2
 
"The language of the mythical 'porn filter' is so insidious, so pervasive, that even those of us opposed to it have been sucked into its slippery embrace. And so even when it turns out that O2 are blocking the Childline and Refuge websites, or that BT are blocking gay and lesbian content, we tend to regard them as collateral damage – accidental victims of a well-meaning (if misguided) attempt to protect out children from the evils of cock.

But this was never the case.... Working through secretive negotiations with ISPs, the coalition has put in place a set of filters and restrictions as ambitious as anything this side of China, dividing the internet into 'acceptable' and 'unacceptable' categories, and cutting people off from huge swathes of it at the stroke of a key."

Another music observation: the Memphis Goons' "Mood Music" (supposedly recorded between 1969-1973) reminds me of a lo-fi version of Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" (1978).
