I quit a while ago. It's funny to be forgetful when you're young...when you get older the kids pick on you if you forget stuff....I don't need them telling me "I need a nurse".

OK...you made me look it up; "According to Mark Lockwood’s Basic Texas Birds: A Field Guide, with or without Wile. E. Coyote chasing it, a Greater Roadrunner can reach speeds of 20 MPH (32 KPH) while a Coyote can reach speeds of up to 43 MPH (69 KPH). Clearly, in an all out footrace, the roadrunner would be dinner." https://www.10000birds.com/how-fast-can-a-roadrunner-run.htm

Robecology comments on Dec 24, 2019:
The problem is a survival mechanism called greed. All animals display it. When we feel the stresses o life, we hoard, stash, and save more...we try harder for wealth as a cushion against hard times. It's an innate habit. And for some it's an addiction. It's my personal opinion that if we don't get greed - and family planning - under control..then we might cause us and many other species to go extinct. It wouldn't be the end of the world; in fact it would give the world evolutionary clock a chance to 'reset" - but it could end our time on this planet. In fact, I blogged "Greed the perfect addiction - and the one factor that could kill America" years ago....and it's been my most often read blog-post. http://robecology.blogspot.com/2016/12/greed-perfect-addiction-and-one-factor.html?q=ffc

Robecology comments on Dec 24, 2019:
One of organized religions' strong points is the social interaction that favors groups.... With us agnostics just still a minority, there's little fundraising, hardly any (that i know of) "church-building" or "assembly-hall-building" of any kind...so the #religulous have an advantage there. But that shouldn't stop you from "socializing" - even with the religious. I don't attend church (haven't in close to 50 years) but I stay in touch with and was even a guest of honor at a religious group luncheon. My opinions and style of debate are respected there; so I do enjoy an occasional visit with my friends....I even contribute to their cause as part of the "Smile.Amazon.com" experience. Don't let the "religious" stop you from being sociable. They look at you as a chance to "proselytize" and I look at them as a chance to "enlighten" - so we often have lively debates.

I saw some absolutely shocking, horrible messes made in stores yesterday...thanks to FB friends who took them while struggling with "store" shopping. Brick and Mortar stores will soon be gone in most advanced, industrial nations. It will take a little longer in agrarian/third world nations....but on line shopping....letting the shippers bring us our purchases...and return the unwanted ones...has gotten so simple that I see the end of "going to the store" for stuff...at least, for me. I can't see the wisdom of shopping in stores anymore; except for groceries....and now even they're making delivery easy and cheap.

I eee a contradiction between what you're saying and what you're doing. If you don't like them giving you a gift....why did you get them anything? The easiest way to signal "no gift (or card, or visit, or greeting) next year" is to not give one this year. C'mon doc....you should know this. What's weird is that you're asking us about it! It sounds like they've discussed "relating" to you quite often...hmmmm....do I see a "threesome" in your future? I'm not condemning it...but that, to me, is the "weird" that you might not see?

The back-up camera has made it safer, easier, and smarter to back-in park. We've all seen folks who back out end up hitting something...or taking forever doing so; so backing-in parking is not only wiser, it's considerate when you're leaving. And yes...it used to take a long time when you had just mirrors; but the back-in camera has changed that; it makes it safer, easier, and faster to do. Get with the program @Jolanta....backing in is best.

I concur with @bingst. I, too, don't see this as a significant influence. The key, IMO...will be the availability of E.V.'s... Electric Vehicles....that are cheaper, faster, simpler to fix, faster to charge, longer range than the typical I.C.E. (internal combustion engine) car. If Tesla (or any car maker) comes out with a sub $20K fast, safe, easy/fast to charge-up EV...then the pocketbooks will talk...gas will get cheaper to the point where it won't be worth "mining/shipping...and the ICE era will finally close.

Robecology comments on Dec 22, 2019:
Having a discussion here on an agnostic site won't affect many. BUT For what it's worth; here's my opinion; There's two things that are affecting the growth or repression of democracy; The growing population, and the human- and animal - instinct of greed. One key is money, and the push to get more. It's clear that money buys advertising....and advertising changes minds. And it's also clear - to me- that the addiction to money - greed - will cause a decline in democracy, and the human condition. I will add that as a scientist/demographer....the root of our problems is the growing populations...158 more births, than deaths, every minute. 227,000 every day. A millon more every 4.5 days. This pressure - on our environment, on our governments, and on governments that want to govern democratically...has clearly been negative. Democracy is in decline...and the need to control people is obviously growing. The solution - to me - is obvious. Family planning. Changing the tax structure to incentivise small families, not large ones..could help us redirect. Unfortunately - I see little progress in this direction. http://www.poodwaddle.com/worldclock/

I haven't complained...but since you're bringing the issue of "naked picture" groups...I had to add my 2 cents. Perhaps the originator/moderator is too sensitive?

Robecology comments on Dec 16, 2019:
Tesla stock closed at $381.50. I have been asked is it because of the Cyber Truck reveal? I have to say no. It's not because the China factory completed construction in 9 months and has now started production. It is not because a site has been acquired for plant near Berlin and construction has started. It is not because model 3 sales are breaking records. It is not because of the model S and X refresh. it is not because the Super Charger network charge rate has been increase and the network is constantly expanding on three continents. It is not because the model Y is expected to start production early with two new production innovations (single frame casting and rigid wiring). It is not because Semi is Beta testing. It is not because the roadster which is being developed has world class breakthrough specs. It is not because Tesla automobiles sell at the widest profit margin per unit in the industry. It is not because Tesla has virtually unlimited access to capital if it needs it. It is not because Jim Cramer is now bullish on Tesla. It is for all these reasons taken together . This constellation of facts is entering the minds of investors interested in growth and perhaps some short sellers who have decided to capitulate on what increasingly is looking like a bad bet. And Elon Musk is the CEO. of Tesla. And SpaceX. And Hyperloop. And SolarCity. Please; a little respect for the genius.

They should be "put against the wall" and forced to face the consequences of their actions. Right now they obviously are not.

The only sis is on a rare FB contact w/me...and the youngest is a weird, religulous, former punk-band star (Reagan Youth) who is borderline insane.
Forest planting by Kimura One of my all time favorite things but have no experience in.

For those who love Bonsai; please come visit the biggest outdoor Bonsai exhibit in America...here, in Ft. Pierce, Florida! I don't know why the city fathers don't post a sign on U.S. 1 letting folks know of this hidden treasure; but please consider coming and viewing...and I live 15 minutes away....glad to host your stay overnight!

So common...yet so rare.... good capture!
I have been maintaining casual Keto for a few months now and will continue until a bit more weight ...
Robecology comments on Dec 3, 2019:
"Keto" is a gimmick. The problem is simply that we've all been programmed...since before we could walk and talk - to eat if our emotions needed satisfying. Some of us were ignored. Some of us were trained to snack on veggies and healthy snacks. Some of us were given junk foods. The last group makes up most of us. And this programming starts earlier than almost any other "bad habit". But our parents did the best they could. Don't be angry with them. My trick...let hunger back in to your life...especially at bedtime. Hunger used to be common...and was common for thousands of generations. And science has proven it's good for us. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/hunger-gains-a-new-idea-of-why-eating-less-increases-life-span/ We're practically the first or second generation to have so many foods so near us that we don't have to deal with hunger...but then we get overweight. So let hunger be your friend. No special foods...just stop eating a few hours before bed-time.
2 December, 2019 - Diet Diary - Had 3 good days, got weight back down from highest point since ...
Robecology comments on Dec 3, 2019:
I hear you. I just rocketed back up with several days of "indulging"....now I'm about to go on a sailing "cruise" (more food to "indulge" in) ....then two weeks later....it's exchange presents day with excessive eating day....followed....again a week later...by a celebration for the new year. So three sets of "indulgences" coming up....my goal will be to gain less than 5 pounds by the new year....I don't dare try to stay my "almost ideal BMI weight" for the next month....or life will be very boring. Be positive. Life's too short to be overly restrictive. We'll fast in January and get back down.....
I turned 50 this year and OMG I don't feel any different! I used to think, I'd sort of feel weaker,...
Robecology comments on Dec 3, 2019:
Age creeps up slowly...as the rising oceans do...or as global warming does. Not noticeable....but scientifically measurable. To live longer, IMO...focus now on being close to your ideal BMI....sweat a little every day (our ancestors sweated often - we who are spoiled by A.C. sweat rarely)....and keep up a high-fiiber, high protein diet is my recipe for longevity.
True words!
Robecology comments on Dec 3, 2019:
If you've been raised to believe that - then nothing can change your mind (the #religulous are like that). If you're open to consider that existence is what you make of it....pain, or pleasure....or if you're open to consider that existence is a brief moment in the universe when you're granted the rare privilege, and ability to feel ANYTHING...then you'll read and enjoy this; It's what we agnostics think.
Consider all aspects before deciding
Robecology comments on Dec 2, 2019:
@Boxdoc....yes; Elon Musk and his staff are well aware of the abuses of child labor in the Congo. His team is working hard to avoid getting his cobalt from the Congo...where most of it comes from. But do remember; the families tolerate their children working the mines. The families of the mining corporations know they're hiring children as laborers. The government tolerates this. 40,000 children are said to be employed there. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-congo-mining-insight/send-in-the-troops-congo-raises-the-stakes-on-illegal-mining-idUSKCN1UC0BS The bigger picture is the world wide push - mostly by Russia and the U.S. uber-wealthy - to sustain fossil fuels...which might kill all of us. The World Health Organization estimates greenhouse gases and harmful air pollutants, such as particulate matter, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide, cause over** 7 million premature deaths around the globe each year**. Reducing the use of fossil fuels for transportation and electricity generation decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and stroke in both developed and undeveloped countries. Right now Russia and the US have huge subsidies on gas and oil mining, refining, and fracking. These nations have the lowest gasoline taxes of all nations (see chart, below - source of the chart is https://afdc.energy.gov/data/10327). https://www.tesla.com/ns_videos/tesla-impact-report-2019.pdf

Robecology comments on Dec 2, 2019:
I've been to Canada and Mexico...and to Puerto Rico and Hawaii...as well as many of the island nations of the Caribbean....but that's it. I've wanted to tour the Mediterranean...I've been perusing travel brochure of the Windstar cruises for decades now...but never had the "opportunity" to go. Having said that...I love Florida. Love its' climate. Love living close to the ocean. Love a beach outside my front door. Puerto Rico has a lot of that, and clearer waters....but their infrastructure is sadly underdeveloped...and in need of work. I've been there many times....even since the horrific hurricane of 2017....Maria? and have helped friends get solar power to their homes....but I love my home here in Florida.
Why are so many Americans so paranoid of socialism? Why do they think a socialist is one step away ...
Robecology comments on Dec 2, 2019:
There's a lot of profound ignorance. We set the standards for education in the 50's and 60's...and most developed nations one-upped us. Now our best doctors and technicians have accents...and they're obviously new immigrants. America's home-grown, fostered by the #religulous push and the fossil-fuel greed, is now world leaders in...prison populations and per capita in prison. We're 30th to 40th in science and math....and far lower than that in common sense.
Is a Mini Ice Age Coming? [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Dec 2, 2019:
The average temp is rising world-wide...but it's also shutting off the oceanic conveyor belt that brings warm waters from the tropics northward. The melting greenland ice is changing the density of the water...so it no longer comes far north...and thus the threat of a mini-ice age in. the northern hemisphere...and the threat of Australia, and the tips of S. America and Africa getting over-baked. Al Gore said this over a decade ago...in "An Inconvenient Truth" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02NRKzemXYE
I remember this and did not like it.๐Ÿคฎ
Robecology comments on Dec 2, 2019:
I think that was the first time I "tasted" preservatives....that was the beginning of the end of canned snacks for me...
