Giant Iceburg

A gigantic hunk of ice broke loose from Antarctica recently. It's about 1/4th the size of Wales. Watch the video and be amazed.

That's a significant amount of ice to be breaking away. It may lead to greater amounts of ice behind the empty spot falling into the ocean.

I'm certain the ice will melt at the poles well before we encounter another meteor.

I've been hearing rumors about how a lot of people changed their minds regarding Brexit - few of them seem to be Tories, however. I share your doubt. If it actually does happen, it's not going to be "hard" or much like the original vision for it.

A lot of Americans are saying the same about Trump. He is our Brexit.

I saw video of people on fire jumping out of windows to try and save their lives. To say it was shocking is an understatement.
