Robecology replies on Aug 2, 2019:
@AstralSmoke One course in Entemology, quite a few in Ecology. They're symbiotic with many flies and wasps. It's actually a rather morbid relationship; They flies feed off the aphids "honeydew" - and the aphids, in turn, sacrifice their bodies (not willingly) because many wasps and flies lay eggs inside the aphid's body. The babies then eat the aphid from inside out. http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2012/03/13/parasitic-wasps-vaccinate-aphids-by-spreading-anti-wasp-bacteria/#.XUTChi2ZPBI

Bingo. If we don't adapt to a system that limits the uber rich and raises the poorest out of poverty - we might go extinct. I concur. We need Democratic (modern) not autocratic (Russian) or demagogic (Chinese) socialism...but democratic socialism. If we pay taxes...and the taxes are used to buy things, aren't we, the taxpayers the owners? It's social-ism. You and I "own" the state and national parks. But we pay in to a system that in turn disperses our wealth to maintain things. Socialism. plain and simple. 200 years ago there wasn't enough "society" to have socialism. So it's a new concept. But look at those who've gotten the wealthiest. How did they get there? ...capitalism. Capitalism can work within a socialist society. Will us going to free health care, free college, and free social services, at a cost of higher taxes - make us better or worse? The big question that those who fear socialism have to ask is - will it stop capitalism? Of course it won't. It will take the edge off exploitation. It will slow down global warming and bankruptcies from education and health care debt. . It will raise the poor out of their holes. It's even the "moral" and dare I say it...Christian thing to do.

Socialism is new....100 years ago we had around 2 billion people on the planet, Now we're approaching 8 billion...4 times more people. So we need more social "organization. We've discovered too many loopholes that allow the greedy to prosper while the masses suffer. And of course it must be "democratic"...we've seen alleged democratic socialist systems evolve in to autocratic and dictatorial socialism....so yes...we need to use society (socialism) to regulate the leaders who organize our social service systems; public schools, military, and taxation...all socialist processes.

Robecology replies on Jul 31, 2019:
It's easy to define; but it's obviously been abused. In terms of our civilization...it's a relatively new thing..... But it is simple; it's what it's called...social - ism. Using society to control and regulate things as a collective thing, rather than an individual or business decision. We've seen how greed and profiteering has made businesses do things that make many in society benefit but few who profit from the business....we've seen the need to regulate and control this greed. That's socialism. We've also seen how government leaders have taken advantage of the programs of socialism. But again...we're learning. I honestly think we're close to getting it right. We know we have to clean up our environment using socialist rules. Letting private companies clean things up hasn't worked - and has lead us to almost runaway global warming. Socialism can end this. We know we have to improve our health care. Letting private companies give us health care has driven health care costs through the roof...and have literally stopped our average life span growth. We need socialist health care system to let us continue to improve our health. In the 1950's we used our 100% socialist education system both elementary, secondary, and even many colleges to become #1 in world learning. Since that time...as private and religious-controlled schools have grown, our ranking in world education has dropped precipitously. With free college (paid for by the socialist process of taxing the wealthy) we would re-claim our ranking in education. I hope we get over the fog and stigma of socialism. I hope my explanations have helped you.

@daylily Point taken. There is obviously no clear end to "dating"...yet I don't want to buy in to that accusation that most single seniors are living lives of quiet frustration; so I resign myself to stop pursuing dating...and continue to enjoy being alone....and in love with what I do and how I live. Would I be delighted to meet a woman who was, as the OP suggested, "slightly out of my league"? Of course! But I refuse to fall in to that category of a quietly frustrated senior who "tolerates" living alone. I've pretty much given up the "pursuit" and just put myself out there (only on here...no "dating" sites...and yes....I'm a home-body most, if not all weekends). I'm working on enjoying my diet, my level of cleanliness, my level of organization. The fitness that suits me. And I stand by what I said, above; if I meet a woman who's "slightly out of my league" I'll wear my best shirts, shine my shoes, and try to impress her... Because, in my heart, and in my mind, I haven't given up "searching for someone who's a bit out of our league". In the meantime... I'm working on continuing to fall in love....with me!!

Robecology replies on Jul 30, 2019:
@StarvingArtist Good questions; Basically the reason Fossil fuels are totally un-renewable is that we change them when we use them...we "oxidize" or "burn' them, changing them in to completely different - and often toxic - substances. Not so with battery ingredients. We "drain" them - but we recharge them....sometimes for thousands of cycles. First let me dispel a myth; a Lithium battery is not mostly lithium. It's made of carbon, silicon (sand is silicon dioxide) and other rather common ingredients. ...and they're not "burned" or altered significantly in their production of electricity. That's why they are rechargeable. You're probably using one now in your laptop of phone to read this. The battery literally recycles every time you plug it in for a charge. Now the charging....like our bodies...ages - becomes less "efficient. It happened to my 2013 Tesla. When it was new, it charged to 270. When I traded it in, it had lost 10%of its' charging capacity For the phones it's a 2-4 year life. For Tesla cars it's guaranteed for 8 years...after which you might have to replace it. But what happens to the old ones? Yep; they are broken down, separated in to component compounds, and recycled. That's why you should never throw even regular batteries "away"...they will only make landfills places to mine in future generations...because the batteries will still retain their basic elements.

If you don't see the racism that she expressed that caused a "conservative" beauty pageant administrator to ban her... I feel sorry for you. But most pro-Trump people don't see the issue either.

To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding...." from here; easy to find; search "US aid to Israel, PDF" to see this official document by the U.S. Congress (2018) https://fas.org/sgp/crs/mideast/RL33222.pdf ...and if you do the math; multiply 365 times the number of years since WW II (almost 75 in 2020) you'll see we give Israel over $5 million a day to keep their 300+ nukes on subs all around the Middle East.

As of this week (beginning March 11), prices have risen (this is from an article, below). California prices grew by 30 percent from $0.20 to $0.26 and New York costs jumped by $0.05 to $0.24. Oregon was hit with one of the steepest risesΒ­β€”$0.12 to $0.24. Illinois drivers will now pay $0.24 instead of $0.15. All prices are per kWh. So let's take an average of $0.20 cents per KWH to charge; 90% charge at home (cheaper) 10% charge mainly/mostly at Superchargers (higher). My Tesla's a 100 (KWH) S. That means it will hold 100 KwH's of charge of you charge it to full capacity. If you travel at 65-70 MPH....you get a range of 335 miles. So that 3.35 miles costs an average of $0.20cents. Thus if you multiply both these #'s by 10, you go 33.5 miles, and you'll pay an average of $2.00 dollars What gas powered car gets 33 miles on $2 bucks worth of gas? Very few; if any. So....long story short; EV's are much cheaper to run (relevant to the cost of fossil fuel energy). The source of electricity is a factor in pollution; mine is "nuclear" powered. 23% of America is still "coal" powered....but remember - power plants have a lot more efficient pollution controls than those on a typical car....so even if your car is "coal" powered, it's almost twice as efficient as a gasoline powered car. So in general, EV's are far less polluting than Gasoline counterparts. Here's a great video I often share that explains some of the reasons why in 10 years, fossil fuel cars will be almost gone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7Jg1IJ68_g and here's he source of EV cost to power https://www.newsweek.com/tesla-hikes-supercharger-prices-how-much-each-state-will-cost-840143
Q:378010..
Robecology comments on Jul 23, 2019:
LOL...solution? Buy an EV....plug in charge at home or at a Supercharger....the fee for the "juice" is paid for on line...in the privacy of your car...and it's a third the price of gas....
Robecology replies on Jul 23, 2019:
@MojoDave Sorry you think so. It's just the science and health teacher (45 years, retired) in me that keeps trying to "sell" the EV's.

Robecology comments on Jul 21, 2019:
The main reason I rarely comment on the Sexy-classy site is that I know it's impossible to actually see, touch, and experience these women in real life. ...so thanks, Mofo1953 for giving me "hope"....
Robecology replies on Jul 23, 2019:
@Mofo1953 I'm "putting' it out there" but I'm getting no bites....not even a nibble... ....but I'm OK with that. Like I said...I rarely comment becaues these beauties are just so hard to find...so rare...and if I can't smell and teste them....why get my appetite worked up?
For better or for half.
Robecology comments on Jul 22, 2019:
I would say....DON't get in touch....or please, remove my # from your phone?
Robecology replies on Jul 23, 2019:
@RobertMartin LOL...I kind of did that....moved from 60 miles away to 120 miles away. It hasn't helped that much.
How do you motivate yourself to exercise?
bigpawbullets comments on Jul 22, 2019:
Having a peer group for positive reinforcement. And, of course, the bathroom scale.
Robecology replies on Jul 22, 2019:
@PolyComrade That's the rub...where do you draw the line regarding engrained eating habits vs. "eating disorders"? But thanks for your perspective.
I guess even the seemingly perfect relationship is really wrought with problems. Stay single folks!...
TristanNuvo comments on Jul 22, 2019:
Well. I guess crazy knows no bounds. lol. Just a reminder at one of the reasons I love being single. :)
Robecology replies on Jul 22, 2019:
And don't call it "crazy". The "crazies" are the ones who bend too much and allow compromise to change their basic nature for the sake of staying "in the relationship"....now THAT's crazy.

Robecology replies on Jul 22, 2019:
Thank you, @JamesUC and @bigpawbullets for the come-back. To each his/her own, I guess. The daily check helps me more closely examine what I ate and how much the prior day. I won't go the calorie count route; that's too tedious for me...but I'm psyched for getting back in to the 130's...losing this gut flab. Yea, I do crunches almost every day (total gym) as well as a "sweat" workout on the bike (4-6 miles) but I'm determined...and daily checking keeps me focused.
Anyone have a good, positive vibe today... ?
Robecology comments on Jul 22, 2019:
The weather's nice, the coffee's perfect, and the computer and internet is working.... The only thing stopping me from having a perfect day is that my garage door power is out...and the fusebox switch keeps tripping. It went out when lightning hit Friday. It worked once to get in the ...
Robecology replies on Jul 22, 2019:
@Cutiebeauty Yes...almost definitely; and the electrician's on his way; we'll have the "prognosis" by noon. But this doesn't stop me from getting my bike and going for a ride...doing so now, before it gets too hot! POST edit...Went for the bike ride...it looks like it'll take major re-wiring to change the charging capacity of the regular 120 volt outlet. The problem is the distance to the circuit breaker box...a good 250 feet. Oh, well...gotta go get charged up at the Superchargers from now on....NBD...19 miles/25 minutes away. I will deal with it for now.

You bring up a good issue. To use or not use the scale daily. I believe in daily check, same time, same amount of clothes on...and I've even been writing my weight down on a pad hanging near the scale. But one close friend and another here on 'Battling Obesity" says not a good idea. comments?

Robecology replies on Jul 19, 2019:
@Looking4-Others The "horror" will come if we let the wealthy throw away too many regulations, and hide/mask the lasting damage of fossil fuels. The horror will be if we start an exponential temp rise that puts even most land plants and animals at risk....essentially resetting the evolutionary clock back 100 million years.

Robecology comments on Jul 19, 2019:
So 70,000 years away by the fastest travelling space ships. 21 times closer to the star it's orbiting...so no chance for water. Far too hot, no atmosphere (solar winds). What's the point of even theorizing "standing on its' surface"?
Robecology replies on Jul 19, 2019:
@Dhiltong I'm glad the video maker made it clear that there's no way that we'll ever go there and experience it. I just get pissed off when the comments start flowing about "how soon can we"move to this (or that) exoplanet"....we can't even plan a decent outpost on the moon, let alone mars...now we're talking about walking on an exoplanet? Uggghh.

Robecology replies on Jul 19, 2019:
@MrLizard The original I bought in 2013 had a 270 mile range. When I traded it in at 60K miles, the range was down to 258. I traded up to the one with the best range....335 miles...the 100 D. I hear that they've tweaked that range to 375 on the newer models...so my point is they'e always improving the range. And remember; you/I rarely take road trips. Most job commutes are under 100 miles per day....easily rechargeable overnight. Here's a Tesla map. https://supercharge.info/map Go to https://www.tesla.com/drive and make an appointment to test drive one. ...it'll blow you away....its a couple hours of pure joy.
