Another cherry picking example. Instead of saying the volcano erupted for the first time in 40 years," they could have said it's at least the 10th eruption since 1837. That gives it an average of 17.8 years between eruptions and not as rare as they make it sound by mentioning 40 years.

Besides, if you are going to state facts, you should at least get it right. The last eruption was August 26, 1972. So from that date to April 22, 2015 is 42 years, 7 months, 27 days (round to 43).

on boreme, cengfu*k is not used as a proper noun, but rather as an adjective to describe a retarded, spasmatic, shit eating, internet codger troll.

Hence me calling you a cengfu*k.
