It is march today.  The web site still seems to not be updating on time.  I
did check the ftp as I heard a rumour it is often updated faster, but I
still show the old topic.  Has one not been decided yet?

As far as I'm aware, it's still Feb 28 in many parts of the USA.  In 
fact, as I write this it is 8.24pm, Feb 28 in the Aleutian Islands in 
Alaska (although I am not currently in the Aleutian Islands.....)

Hehe yes for me the deadline to this round was 9 am on the 1st of march.
Anyways, the deadline is past now, no matter what part of the world you're
in, so the new topic should be announced soon.
It's indeed wise to check the ftp as last time it took over a week to show
the new topic on the site.

Natural disasters (earthquakes, meteor impacts, etc), human-caused disasters
(nuclear winters, 20-car-pile-ups), personal disasters (IRS audits);
anything that inspires monumental chaos on a personal or global level.

Not one I scored highly, obviously a lot of people liked it better as a
topic than I did.

I immediately thought of the short story by Twain; _A Cat Tale_.
Probably the world record holder for use of words starting with
cat- .
