There are a few things that stand out in my mind about 1980; it was the year I bought my first video game, (an Atari 2600 console) and my first VHS video recorder. It was that same year that VCX inc. began releasing new high quality XXX porno movies in VHS format, and at about a rate of two movies per month – and it was the same year that I discovered that Christian girls, liked X-rated porn, even more than I did. I started thinking of the movies as training films. These slutty little Christian chicks would scream out “OH MY GOD” and “OH MY JESUS” so much while I was having sex with them; that I had started developing a messiah complex back then, even though my name has always been john. I was 19 in 1980, and life was good!
In the late 1970s, the geological activity here in the North West had started increasing greatly. Even The water in the hot-springs at the nudist camp where I would go and swim; had become so hot that you damn-near could have cooked lobsters in the water. Both of the major mountain ranges that border most of Washington state, which includes at least 3 dormant volcano’s were all experiencing dramatic increases in both seismic activity and steam venting. There was great concern among many of our states geologists, that some kind of a mass geological event might have been imminent. By late 1979 the talk of volcanic eruptions had began over shadowing almost everything else – and updates from the U.S. Geological Survey had become the focal point of the nightly news.
Then in the spring of 1980, and after the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Washington had reported that an eruption at least one of these dormant volcanos’s (Mount ST Helens) was almost certain; an emergency plan was enacted. This plan included the voluntary evacuation of the people living in the danger zones, including all of the people who were living on the mountain. Then on the day when the Governor of the State of Washington had issued an evacuation warning, and had ordered the states National Guard to assist in relocating those who were living in the danger-zones; some of these people were still refusing to leave. And refusing despite of the fact that the mountain was now producing many daily earthquakes, and the water in a nearby lake had begun to boil, and there were dead fish floating around everywhere on its surface. Many of these folks claimed that they had lived on this Mountain for all of their lives, and that they were Christians, and that Jesus would not let harm come to them or their families – while back here in Seattle, some of the preachers were saying “God” had been giving visions of the North West being totally destroyed by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and 700 foot high tidal waves. It almost seemed like they were in some kind of a competition of out doing each others fear mongering. Some were saying that the eruptions were needed to expand hell, so that all of the heathens in Seattle could fit without any difficulty. And some had started holding nightly prayer services, and telling their ignorant flock that all they needed was faith in Jesus, and they would go to heaven. And they were really raking in the big-bucks!
