Our cat has some special diet needs with his pancreatic insufficiency. We’re trying some new foods and this line of stuff from Mauri is really neat. Half of the flavors I have to Google to figure out, and then there’s kangaroo. No koala yet.

Hoki is a fish.

The Pan-Atomic Canal

Proposed uses for nuclear explosives under Project Plowshare included widening the Panama Canal, constructing a new sea-level waterway through Nicaragua nicknamed the Pan-Atomic Canal, cutting paths through mountainous areas for highways, and connecting inland river systems. Other proposals involved blasting underground caverns for water, natural gas, and petroleum storage. Serious consideration was also given to using these explosives for various mining operations. One proposal suggested using nuclear blasts to connect underground aquifers in Arizona. Another plan involved surface blasting on the western slope of California’s Sacramento Valley for a water transport project.
