(UPDATE: Because of users on reddit and what I've read elsewhere, the Dam is just fine, the spillway has been relieved but has caused alot of erosion of the landscape. People are still being told to evacuate and find shelter because of flash floods and eroded landscape, but the dam itself hasn't broken.

My apologies)

(Update: Breitbart article: www.breitbart.com/california/2…)

(The Spillway's relief is apparently a legal action. Think of it like letting off the pressure of a faucet, or maybe a stressed hose. But the problem is, there's a serious erosion problem happening in the spillway which is why this is so dangerous. If the spillway erodes, and collapses, there's nothing to plug up the water, which could wipe out towns nearby.)

(If you have any news, any updates, or any information correction, go ahead and submit it and I'll get it in! Thanks!)

My name is Tony! Welcome to my page.

I am an eclectic pagan with a love for Humankind, Earth, and the creatures living upon this big blue ball.

I believe people should have the choice to govern themselves, create their own opinions, act upon their own decisions. I strongly support people's freedoms.

I am a person whom loves to talk and debate, I love to hear other people's opinions and when people are civil about it.

I support civility amongst people, and strongly go against shouting matches between people(s).

Often times I will share my opinions in the form of journals, which you may or may not see above. These are all strictly my opinion, I think long and hard on the subjects before submitting them to public view. If you agree or disagree, be sure to let me know and tell me as to why you agree or disagree.

I support hunting (as long as the body of the creature killed was used in its entirety) and other forms of survival.

I strongly support self-reliance and DIY, I am not against community help nor assistance from others, mind you. Simply think that people should know how to support themselves whenever possible.

I have a strong love/obsession with Steampunk, yiss.

You may not use my characters or pictures without permission or for use such as money. At all. If my pictures inspire you, I'm all the happier for it, but do NOT repost them. They stay here.
