That was the title supplied by the videographer and I have to agree that it is a little misleading. Looking at the video clearly shows that they were talking about thermal springs. Maybe the videographer was Greek and didn't speak English too well?

Maybe he didn't, but *you* do... I presume that you watched the video before posting it? You didn't think of changing your title to something a bit closer to the actual content?

Volcanic springs! Not volcano!

Your title *and* the actual link both distinctly say "volcano", and "spitting water into sea". Talk about clickbait...!

Er, 'volcano'? 'Spitting water into sea'? What video were you watching?

Not screaming in terror like his passengers!"

As a Brit living in the US, I see both sides of this situation... My Dad, on the NHS, was told that he needed to see a specialist, and that they would call to set up his appointment. When the call came, the first available appointment was for more than 2 *years* later. Of course, he didn't have to pay anything for it, but for many conditions, that delay would have killed him.

When I had a serious diagnosis last year, I was strapped into an MRI machine less than 2 hours after the original doctor visit! Of course, if I had been required to pay the full costs, I would have had no chance... I think the MRI came out at almost $4000.

You pays your money (or not...) and you takes your choice.

Just be glad you're not buying tractors.
I have bought mostly used tractors, and every one I bought used cost me more than it originally cost new.
The used tractors are still significantly cheaper than the new ones, so they're worth the expenditure (if they're in good condition).
The cost of a tractor is not the capital you put into it, but the maintenance.

To date, I have not had to spend more for a tractor than I paid for my first house.

They used to say that you could make money by buying a Rolls Royce... If you order a new one, there is a 2-year waiting list (or was *then*, no idea now). The day you take delivery (and hand over your $250,000...), order a new one. When *that* one is ready, you can sell your current one for more than the new price, to someone who doesn't want to wait the 2 years...

Never had even close to the funds available to try the theory out, I hasten to add!

I'm in Washington, DC so I don't expect much at all. But there are a lot of people from Baltimore to Boston
that might become inundated with snow. What are you stocking up with for a couple of days at home?

Looks like we dodged a bullet here in PA - they were forecasting 5 - 8 inches, but the worst of it has passed, and we got less than an inch - not even plow-able! They say there is usually a run on bread, milk and toilet paper. I remember one storm, back around 93 or so, when I lived in Silver Spring, MD, I was in the grocery store the afternoon before, and the woman in front of me at the checkout had 2 24-roll packs of toilet paper in her cart... What on Earth did she think we were going to get???

About the time the autotrophs began to drool. Seriously, I cannot believe that I wrote that; of course our standard is MM/DD/YYYY. Thank you for catching my error.

Is *that* what they are saying in the Big Bang Theory theme? Autotrophs? That has bugged me since the show started! It always sounds like 'allotropes' to me, and of course *they* cannot exactly drool...

Thanks for that info!

So if the police have the drone, who posted the video?

Thank you robertjeri --did you ever use the 7d? Is the 7dII that much better?

I upgraded from the 7D to the 7DII, and I noticed a *huge* difference. There was much less noise in the images, for one. Having said that, I also bought a used 5DII at the same time - here at this very boutique! - and that has tended to be my go-to camera ever since. I wanted to try out a FF camera, and while I don't do big enlargements or anything, there is just something about that camera... Never used a 6D, but if you *do* want to try out FF, don't rule out the 5DII!

I have to look at the kbd when I type, and I've looked up to see a whole line of caps. Annoying. It doesn't take much for my finger to slip over and hit Caps Lock. There is an app to get the kbd to beep when caps or num are activated. Maybe I'll go back to that.

That is what I use, although for the life of me I can't remember where I got it. It gives a different 'beep' when turning on or off, so it is easy to be sure that it turns off without looking. Someone probably recommended it on here, I guess...

He isn't 'walking' - they are going to try him again, and he also faces Federal trial. While I agree about how damning the video appears, perhaps it is worth pausing to wonder why the jury - who saw and heard *all* the evidence - did not find him guilty in about 30 seconds flat. There must be stuff there that the media have not bothered to report on.
This is more a condemnation of how poor the media reporting is than the of the court case itself...

Thanks for all the comments.

Bloke I get lots of satellites in my images but don't see one in this image.

It starts below the centre of the nebula, to the left of the bright-ish star, and goes down towards the bottom left. I can only see it when 'double-downloaded', but it's there.

That gives me the shivers. Are they real people sitting there? I see two problems: getting into that position and getting back up.

Beautiful shot.

Not to mention the third problem - just *being* there!

Nice satellite capture, too!
