ready.gov flash animation showing an office in a flood
Browsing a news site today, I caught this weird animation for the US government ‘preparedness’ (hunh?! as in ‘prepared food’?) site, ready.gov

Basically, it shows an office being drowned in a biblical-scale flood. Apart from being astonishingly insensitive to recent victims of the tsunami, when’s this going to happen? Could it finally be an acceptance of global warming by the US government? It’d take a fairly nifty terrorist to cause a flood like this. How’s some plastic sheeting, duct tape, and not talking to strangers going to help here?

I have no answers for this, but I tell you, I’m investing in gopher wood futures right away …
