  1. Is it just me or is trump becoming even more unwrapped as we get closer to the end of this thing?
  2. The thing about it that piques my curiosity Is that these particles have mass. Not a lot obviously but cumulatively over time will they cause a vehicle traveling in interstellar space like voyager to decelerate? Theoretically if you could accelerate to 50% of lightspeed and head towards Proxima Centauri would you still be going 50% of light speed when the time came to begin deceleration?
  3. As you were all aware voyager one and voyager two are both beyond the Heliopause and out of our solar system. They are both reporting something very interesting now. The farther they get from the effectS of the sun the greater the density of charged particles per cubic centimeter of space has been: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencealert.com/for-some-reason-the-density-of-space-is-higher-just-outside-the-solar-system/amp. that seems counterintuitive to me. That there would be a greater amount of charged particles outside of the flu each of the sun then inside of it
  4. Fascist is a word that has completely lost its definition.
  5. Pellet smokers work well enough. My only grief with them is you go through a lot of the wood pellets. They are small so you don’t get much out of them. Master Built electric smoker’s sound like they might be what you’re looking for. I have a sheet iron grill with the smoke box attached to it. Like you said it requires supervision when in use. But for me that’s half the enjoyment.
  6. Wait it it your real birthday or your obs board birthday? Aw hell.... Happy Birthday! (covers it either way! )
  7. Back to the Halloween carnival this afternoon. There are four of us there representing the VFW. Our role is general handyman, refrigeration mechanic, lifter of heavy things, and of course object lessons to children to study harder in school
  8. Political self segregation. After all, it’s hard to have a Civil War without clear lines of who lives where
  9. Fan of Sci-Fi? Psychologists Have You in Their Sights LOL I'd say that sounds more like gamers! Yeah you nerds. Why don't you self medicate with alcohol and drugs like everyone else? LOL!
  10. It's been near three weeks since I last left the house. Other than to get the mail but that really doesn't count. Today I'm not only goung out I'm going to interact with... (shuuder) people! Some of the local organizations are having a "halloween carinival" for kids in town. Going to help out today. I considered bringing Sunny but probably better not to.
  11. I hope you stay active here. You're a good dude and your posts are a constribution to this board. I'd hate to see you fade away.
  12. Watching nature shows on TV can cure boredom, sadness I agree 100%. I have Curiosity Stream and also on NetFlix there are many.
  13. I used to think politics was so important. That our very lives and fortunes hinged on the outcomes of elections. In the 80's you'd hear s--t like that from time to time. Nowdays it's all you hear. But it's really not true. All victories and defeats are fleeting. When Obama won with a super majority in Congress I thought we were well and truly f----d. We got some bad law rammed down our throats but such political alignments are always temporary. In 2010 the pendulum swung back the other way. Im not voting for either Trump or Biden. I have no use for either of them. If I had to pick one it
  14. Sunny is a sweet dog. But she is dumber than a box of crayons. She has lived here for seven years now. And after all that time she still does not know that the front door and back door lead to the same house. If she goes out the back door and ends up in the front yard she will walk all the way around the house to come back in through the back door. If I stand in the front door with it open and call her she will run all the way around to the back door to come in.
  15. Cory Booker is a piece of s—t
  16. They decided two minutes of hate was not enough
  17. And you trust the government to exercise that power responsibly and evenhandedly? You trusted at some future point they won’t decide that everyone who wants something they don’t think they should have is inherently irrational and mentally dysfunctional? Or believes something they “know” is wrong is not a symptom of some mental defect? Government is not made up of robots. It’s made up of people. People have passions prejudices and ambitions. And very few are able to subordinate them to some notion of the greater good. Far from it. Usually they construe the greater good as to matching thei
  18. OK you hit on an interesting point that I’d like to come back to in a bit. Little short for time right now. when it comes to civil liberties I am of the opinion that there are two positions. The first is that you are in favor of all of them all the time for all the people. The second is that you were opposed to all of them all the time for all the people. Many people think there is a middle ground where some civil liberties are OK and others are not. Some are absolute and others granted only at the pleasure of the body politic or “the people”. Those people are fools. And t
  19. I am so sick of hearing Ruth Bader Ginsburg being championed as some arch defender of civil rights. She was nothing of the sort. She was a defender of the civil liberties that she believed in and a militant opponent of others. And damn what the law said. Yes I know, De mortuis nil nisi bonum. But we also owe it to ourselves to be truthful
  20. It is a much better game now than it was a year ago. It was clunky, buggy, and seriously unbalanced when it first rolled out of the gate. It has been considerably streamlined and is much better for it.
  21. For breakfast I put a bag of instant oatmeal in a coffee cup and used the Keurig coffee maker for the hot water. Just one problem. I forgot to remove the K-Cup that was in there first. So I ended up with oatmeal in coffee. I tried it anyway. I figured I like coffee and I like oatmeal, maybe they will be good together. I was wrong. Very, very wrong.
  22. Dinner tonight was two pan fried fillets of real Hatchee River catfish. So fresh it was literally swimming 24 hours ago. I breaded them with hand ground cornmeal and served with steamed green beans and summer squash. Everyting on the plate with the exception of the oil used in the pan came from my garden or property. That is freaking cool IMO!
  23. Sunny and I walked down to the Hatchee yesterday afternoon for a little fishing. Right around sunset I caught a nice sized catfish. Guess what is for dinner tonight!
