Sometimes Sploid really makes us laugh. The appearance of a 400 degree hot spot in Santa Barbara really makes us wonder. Both are good things. It is a reminder that there are still grand mysteries on this planet and that there is still so much we don't know. It could be heat from an earthquake fault or it could be entirely new (to us) phenomenon. Or The Master has risen again. From beneath us it devours.
