Gaia: Murderess

She’s heartless, cruel and viscious

Falling icicles and ice blocks have killed five people and injured 147 in St Petersburg following Russia’s coldest winter in 30 years.

“Every day, I go out into the street as if I was entering a war zone,” complained resident Boris Ilinsky, 28

…The high toll has prompted residents and relatives of victims to demand action against those responsible for what they believe to be careless clearing of ice from rooftops.

Those responsible?

Prius drivers.

    I had some pretty awesome icicles on my house this spring. A couple of times I paused before going to work to knock them down. I was afraid I’d come home and find the mail carrier impaled by one.

    I thought you folks only used wood chippers out there, Dave?

    Good move, Dave. From what I’ve heard on the news, mail carriers usually don’t suffer in silence.

    Rule #1: The Universe is trying to kill me. It just hates localized reversals of the overall entropic trend.
