  1. “The men turned away and went toward Sodom,but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?” The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom
  2. NYPD testing robot dog I have to say I knew it wouldn’t be this but I was kind of hoping that it would be this.
  3. . Nope, not a drop since middle of last year. But I wouldn’t worry overly much about the sipping whiskey business. They will do just fine without my contributions! Seriously are the only thing I drink nowadays are black coffee, unsweet iced tea and water. And Gatorade sometimes. And juice sometimes. I’ve cut way back on the amount of carbohydrates I eat. Most of my meals are now just protein and vegetable. And the majority the vegetables are the ones I grow. Can’t say the same about the meat because I can’t bring myself to actually kill my livestock. I get too attached to them.
  4. Not really. Although I should. I’ve got arthritis in my shoulder and both knees and still have soreness from the accident sometimes. But I am active and walk a lot. Even walking to cold creek is about a 20 minute walk each way with a decent incline on the way back. Plus I do eat right and I have completely given up booze
  5. Bah empire the AI was terrible. Infantry would crouch behind a wall even if they were flanked and getting fired on from behind. Come to that I don’t think they ever tried to maneuver to prevent being flanked. And in the naval games I can’t tell you how many galleons I captured with a single frigate by just staying in front of them and turning periodically to fire at their masts. Cavalry would charge straight at squares, it was a hot mess. I could easily go in there and defeat an army two or three times my size.
  6. Dealing with one of my frequent bouts of insomnia. So I was sitting on the front porch at 3o’clock in the morning trying to decide what the best total war game was. After much consideration I decided the original Medieval TW was the best.
  7. Second best sitcom ever. That was a great episode one of the best lines came at the end “Pinter’s parents didn’t even go”
  8. Always figured that was the most likely way we go out. Speaking of oceans and plate tectonics, imagine what would the earth look like with no moon. Or a moon of heavier or lighter mass even. It is a beautiful system isn’t it? So perfectly balanced.
  9. Will have to work out Jupiters batting average to be sure. But if the moon actually had an atmosphere a good deal of whatever made those craters would’ve burned up before hitting the ground. And would’ve been much smaller once it did impact the ground. Plus if the moon had a decent atmosphere enough they could keep up a good pressure even if it’s not breathable we would probably have people living there
  10. Explosion captured in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere. if it wasn’t for Jupiter I think there’s a pretty good chance there would be no life on earth. It is the solar systems catchers mitt!
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/30945519/new-york-rangers-artemi-panarin-taking-leave-assault-allegations-surface%3fplatform=amp well this is the kind of PR thing you don’t want. On another note I believe this is the first hockey story ESPN has run all season. It’s like this sport does not exist to ESPN.
  12. My provider is a Co-Op, meaning a not for profit public utility. The price per kWh is fixed at like $0.11 and to raise they have get approval from the state. That is how most public utilities work including Texas. In THIS case, if I’m understanding this correctly, the entity is a reseller. In other words not a public utility rather a private entity that is offering a better rate without protection from what just happened. In THIS case it’s customers left the public utility to buy power from the same infrastructure at a reduced price. Or am I misunderstanding this situation? Like I said we do
  13. I got the impression from the paper these were not public utilities in the sense of most power providers. They were being described as "wholesalers" which made me think this was some kind of competitive enterprise to public utility. After all the crazy electric bills were not happening to everyone. There is no such a thing where I live but this is Texas we're talking about. Much like Florida things exist in Texas that could only exist in Texas. But, that was just my impression. I don't know exactly what a power "wholesaler" is.
  14. Don't know. But speaking for myself I have nine real estate lease contracts including one that is a limited partnership between three land owners and another in a small business and you better believe I have a real estate lawyer going over every clause before I agree to any of it. Even the ones I control. I figure I'd rather pay her a few hundred bucks now to keep me out of trouble than a few thousand later to get me out a jam because I didn't have an expert read the contract. At the end of the day it's all about contracts. You only get what you agreed to buy and pay for what you agreed
  15. That small government go-it-alone attitude is hard to keep up when they start handing other people’s money out isn’t it? speaking of which I do believe I’m eligible for unemployment in two weeks!
  16. I've been reading articles about the five figure power bills some folks are getting. I felt sorry for them until I read the circumstances. They are buying into a wholesale electric co-op where the price per kWh is tied to the energy production price. Most of the time it's a pretty good deal but when the capacity is over extended due to shortage those customers got a straight up bent over the table f-----g. Worst part is the wholesalers warrened them it was coming. Plus it's spelled out in the contract. Why on earth would anyone sign a contract to buy a widget when the costs of that widget are
  17. We're finally back above freezing! It feels positively warm outside today. I think I'm going fishing. After 7 days below freezing I bet the fish are hungry
  18. Ice ice everywhere except where you want it! https://nypost.com/2021/02/20/outdoor-nhl-game-turns-into-a-nightmare-for-players/
  19. There’s a bright yellow ball of light hanging in the sky over my house today. I’m not sure what it is I think I remember seeing something like it in the distant past. Still pretty freaking cold out there though. it took an hour and a half to clean the solar panels and get everything powered back up that’s more than enough cold weather for me for the day I’m going back in to play fallout four
  20. Newsmax picks on Biden’s dog Say what you will about Biden. He is a low watt bulb. But insulting a man’s dog is fighting words!
  21. Screw them. If Sunny can’t come then I don’t go
  22. Study shows Dolphins have similar personality traits to humans. I never knew that half of all dolphins were ****!
