Thanks for finding all that information! An amusing side note - in 2007 I was part of a crew that put up a timber frame house in that area. The crane operator was John Muggli (member of the land owner family referenced in the article). I’ll never forget the man - I believe he would win the “World’s Biggest Redneck” competition if there were such a thing. He invited our crew our to his place one night “to pound some beers.” His property was filled with army surplus construction equipment. He told the story of his 8 year old boy trying to blow up a can of WD40 with a firecracker. He told the boy - that ain’t big enough! Run in the shop and grab a blasting cap from the dynamite box, but be safe and duck behind that dozer blade when you light it up! He was very proud of the welded steel grate he’d made for his front porch - “the dog can shit up here, and all I have to do is stomp it through!” The man was full of such stories- it was an interesting night:)

I only speak English. I can understand French a bit. I taught myself Sumerian cuneiform, when I was a child. Does that count?

40 years and counting, I've never missed listening to this on Thanksgiving, be it on the local radio station or my own album. (Although the last few years, it's been live streamed from the radio station.) They play it every year at noon, the old album, scratches and all. It pleases me to say that ...

It’s a thanksgiving staple in my house too, although my daughter prefers the original to my recitation;)
Is this considered porn? I mean, we can clearly see his little pecker. ;)

BestWithoutGods comments on Aug 9, 2019:
No, taxation is not theft. It is how we support the government. It is constitutional. It is legal.
Haemish1 replies on Aug 9, 2019:
We need to fix the system to fairly distribute the tax burden, or people will perceive it as theft.

Broad, over reaching generalizations such as this - based on what I can only assume is anecdotal evidence, would seem to indicate a failure on your part to grasp the underlying elements of your argument.

@zesty If it’s a theory, then present it as such and don’t extend it to an entire population and denigrate those with opposing points of view.

Haemish1 replies on Aug 9, 2019:
@zesty Your argument references the scientific method, but you jump from hypothesis to conclusion with no evidence other than your own anecdotal experience, and then extend that to the entire educational system. If you’d cited some peer reviewed studies, your argument might have more credibility. Making statements in the manner you did somewhat circumvents the scientific method that you reference. Again, “all my smart students” is another broad generalization with no real support.

@RobertMartin There are 3D printers for food now - mostly for printing chocolate and pouring interesting designs with pancake batter. A Star Trek kind of replicator that could take basic molecules and rearrange them as food would be amazing!
