Yellowstone is going to kill all of us anytime now. Old Faithful will signal your death by exploding with magma, horrifically killing all tourists with lava melting, which I heard is extremely painful. You can see a picture of the immense eruption that will destroy the United States on the Wikipedia article Supervolcano. Well, at least I'll be in London later this month, bitches.

KYM can be puzzling. It is thought that there is a potential for the whole Yellowstone area to just go boom, signalling immediate death for anyone around, obviously, and with drastic climatic consequences for the whole world, such would be the scale of the explosion, with colossal amounts of matter thrown into the upper atmosphere. Also faults everywhere would be triggered, huge earthquakes all over the place, etc.

It is possible. It has happened before, see the Deccan Traps, one of the candidates for causing the extinction of the dinosaurs. But it isn't very likely. Anyway, dinosaurs aren't extinct. Birds are dinosaurs.

Georgia held legislative elections on May 21st. As expected, Mikheil Saakashvili's United National Movement came out on top, winning 119 out of 150 seats in the Georgian Parliament. The joint opposition, which formed during Georgia's political crisis, and lost the Party of Republicans, which ran on its own in this election, won only 17 seats. This was the biggest showing by any monarchy-sympathetic or openly monarchist party. David Gamkrelidze's New Right Party, an explicitly monarchist party, was running withthe Opposition in this election. The Christian Democratic Movement led by Giorgi Targamadze won 6 seats in the Parliament. The Labour Party led by Shalva Natelashvili also won 6 seats. The aforementioned Party of Republicans won 2 seats. Amongst the parties that won no seats, but gained at least a few votes, the important one for monarchists is the electoral alliance between the Union of Georgian Traditionalists, Our Georgia, and the Georgian Women Party for Justice and Equality, who got 0.44 percent of the vote. Monarchists could conceivably get support from the opposition, and from all the parties that won seats besides Saakashvili's movement. At the very least, we could get as much as one-fifth of Georgia to become monarchist just by adding together votes from the opposition, the Traditionalist Union's alliance, add the Party of Republicans.

Niue, a territory in free association with New Zealand and ruled right now by Her Majesty the Queen in Right of New Zealand, held elections on the 7th of June. Hubert Kalauni managed the elections, due to Chief Electoral Officer Togia Sioneholo being a candidate for the Niue Assembly. 6 non-partisan members are elected on a common roll.                                                  

80s RRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

14 candidates are elected as representatives of the villages.

Yay! Cyndi Lauper!

Three of the six common roll members-people failed to be re-elected.

Teh Beatles are awesome!
Groooooooooovy, baby! Beam that song into space and make all the aliens think we're poetic like John Lennon.  Hippies!

Those members were: Hima Douglas was unseated by the aforementioned Togia Sioneholo. Michael Jackson was unseated by Ms. Mahetoi Hekau. Krypton Okesene was unseated by Ms. Esther Pavihi.
O'Love Jacobsen, who has been a member of the Niue Assembly for twenty years and won re-election this year, has stated that she believes the election was a call for change from the voters of Niue, and expected that the Assembly would elect a new Premier to replace the current one, Mr. Mititaiagimene Young Vivian, and supports the candidacy of Toke Talagi, the highest polling candidate in the election. Caretaker Deputy Premier Fisa Pihigia has stated that he would stand if Mr. Talagi stood, as he considered himself better able to fend off a challenge from Talagi than Young Vivian, the current Premier.
Overll, there wasn't much for monarchists to be concerned with here. I don't even think there are any republicans in Niue!

Grenada held parliamentary elections yesterday. For the second straight election in a row, the liberal National Democratic Congress gained every single seat lost by the conservative (and governing) New National Party. In the 2003 elections, the opposition NDC picked up all seven seats lost by the NNP, leaving them with 8 seats in the 15-seat House of Representatives of Grenada. In this election, the NDC took 4 more seats away from the NNP, leaving incumbent NNP Prime Minister Keith Mitchell reduced to Leader of the Opposition. With 11 seats in the Grenadian House of Representatives, National Democratic Congress leader Tillman Thomas is expected to become the next Prime Minister of Grenada. This will be the first spell in Grenadian government since their 1990-1995 and 1983-1984 terms under Sir Nicholas Braithwaite, the latter of which was only thanks to Governor-General Paul Scoon's appointment of Sir Nicholas as Prime Minister following the 1983 U.S. invasion of Grenada.

Ram Baran Yadav, the candidate of the CPN(UML), Nepali Congress, and the Madhesi Janadhikar Forum, won the presidential election's second round with 308 votes. Ramraja Prasad Singh, the CPN(Maoist) candidate, lost with 282 votes. Ram Baran Yadav has thus become the first President of Nepal, though the Maoist may threaten to refuse to form a government as their candidate lost the presidential election.

Ram Baran Yadav was sworn in as Nepal's first ever President today. Also in the Nepali news today, Girija Prasad Koirala has resigned, paving the way for a new government in Nepal, and potentially, new elections.

The results are in in the Cambodian parliamentary election!

The governing evil Cambodian People's Party has won 91 seats.
The liberal Sam Rainsy Party has won 26 seats.
The Human Rights Party has won 3 seats.
The royalist Norodom Ranariddh Party has won 2 seats.
The royalist FUNCINPEC political party has won 1 seat.

The Sam Rainsy Party, Human Rights Party, Norodom Ranariddh Party, and FUNCINPEC have all alleged vote fraud and are considering forming a coalition to challenge Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has apprently declared that he wants to stay in power until his 90th birthday.

I'm glad we're on the same page in regards to these "ex"-communists.

Once the Reds get in power, they don't give it up easily. This is because they believe the Revolution is the natural evolution of human society and all means are appropriate to keep the revolution moving forward.
