[youtube.com] Hemp for Victory
Larry-new comments on Apr 25, 2019:
And is still true. I worked at the Columbian Rope Company, which had its own hemp plantations in the Philippines...it was called Manila, and we made rope up to 12" diameter. The Manila fiber came in oiled bales...the factory had to have its own fire brigade, as there was a fire almost daily.
It's sad but very true.

What's the Difference Between Agnosticism and Atheism? | HowStuffWorks
Larry-new comments on Apr 22, 2019:
The question, if there truly is one, is what amount of unprovable claims by others are you willing to allow? It makes no difference to the believers, and their delusion makes no difference to me. They might as well be claiming supernatural intervention in football point spreads for all the difference it makes..angels, demons, aliens, hells, heavens, pearly gates, blessings, curses...all to work around reality. To put it another way, I can step around bullshit without wondering about the breed of bull that deposited it. Or the beliefs or lack of belief of the animal.

Did his expertise in physics somehow qualify him to pontificate about other things? p.s....I heard he was a lousy plumber, too. O.K...rant over. To his point...excessive need for protection would indicate an underlying vast insecurity...Mothers, hide your sons!
