And you thought a pile-up on the interstate was bad:

An iceberg the size of Luxembourg has smashed into another vast slab of ice that juts out from Antarctica.

The 115km-long B-15A iceberg broke off a 5km-long section of the Drygalski ice tongue when it collided with the protruding ice rivet in the Ross Sea.

Apparently it's big enough it might warrant re-drawing Antarctica's maps. Explain that one to the adjuster!

you know - if it wasn't for Bush getting elected, this never would've happened. As Americans, we now have a duty to send people there and fix this. I mean, how hard could it be? And to think, if we would've signed Kyoto, this tragedy could've been averted. Damn all you SUV drivers!
