Robecology comments on Jan 15, 2021:
Great shots of Hawai-ian lava!! I stayed inside my home in Homestead florida when Hurricane Andrew hit in '92. It was frightening...yet amazing. We watched part of our roof go upwards into the eye of a mini-tornado when the eyewall passed over our home. I remember feeling - with my eardrums.- the intense reduction in pressure just before the roof section was lifted. Glad I stayed...No pics on this computer....sorry. We went outside when the eye was passing over; I looked up and saw that huge eye-wall illuminated by a full moon....I'll never forget it!

It's an exciting time. And progressives are making gains all over. We won the mid-terms. We won this election. With the Georgia senate vote of Jan 5th, we've now attained a balanced Senate. And Trump's being the worst of sore losers. So democrat/liberal/progressive gains have been made. Trump's now in the process of being impeached a second time; and McConnell s signaling that while he doesn't think there's time to convict by Jan 20th...he is in favor of impeachment. So sit tight. Be positive. Trump's rebellious minions are likely to remain home and lick their wounds from Jan 6 (150 arrests...more every day). Copy save and share this list. https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seeking-info/violence-at-the-united-states-capitol-8 Here's a charming video showing at least 15 people that Trump called loser...now it's their turn to call him that; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj01Gi22LsM

Remember; those suffering prison/incarceration were not raised with an emphasis on loving discipline. Many (unofficially 90% or 9 out o 10 - but the research only done by survey of the children....not the parents) were not brought in to this world as a "planned pregnancy". Many (25% or 1 in 4) incarcerated adults had incarcerated parents themselves. https://www.epi.org/publication/mass-incarceration-and-childrens-outcomes/

@Psyche91 Our knowledge, and education, in general...is growing. But for us demographers...it's growing too slowly to indicate our successful transition to a balanced planet. As knowledge grows religion declines and the wisdom of family planning grows....these are proven facts...but the sad part is that due to our still rapid (150 more births, than deaths, per minute) growth...religion will maintain its' hold....and we are heading for an extinction. I wish it weren't so...but it explains a lot about why we're still so slow to come off religion. https://www.worldometers.info

Robecology comments on Jan 8, 2021:
Here's the thing. There are some who see the big picture and don't care. Call them aware...but accepting, or tolerant. There's some who see the big picture and think we can do something to change our species' course. Call them aware and optimistic. There's some who see the big picture and are resigned to accept our demise. Call them aware pessimists. There's some people who see the big picture and welcome the changes. Call them aware evolutionists/evolutionaries. There's some who have been so shell shocked by the big picture that they don't care - or deny the "big picture" - or say "it's in God's hands". Call these folk naive, uncaring, "shell-shocked" or #religulous...and to be honest; the "fear-mongers" - many who are legitimate environmental progressives - are a bit to blame for these people. The myth of "Chicken little running around declaring the sky is falling" does have a logical ring to it. And there's a huge number who do NOT see the "big picture" - call them simply Unaware.

Henry Mancini was decades ahead of most modern "soft" or "smooth jazz" artists. He - along with Peter Sellers and the producers of the "Pink Panther" - made jazz popular for the masses.

Knowing that, I think, can help people feel better about doing just a little exercise instead of none." I'll be going to do my 1/2 hour daily biking routine soon...

Do married couples, before they untie the knot, seek or get counseling?
Robecology comments on Dec 28, 2020:
I was never impeded by laws requiring me to get counseling....but as a three time divorcé I did anyway....but it seemed like it just was a waste of time and money. I even went to one at the recommendation of the latest on-off girlfriend...but it led to nothing improving. I'm in love with....myself. I'm happiest - alone! I foresee problems with that some day; especially if I get suddenly ill or injured and have no one to call for assistance....but I'll cross that bridge - or not - when I come to it. Ideally; I'd like to find a young nurse who'd take care of me...without imposing her "lifestyle" on me...but It looks like that's never going to happen.
As a minimalist since well before it became a pop-culture thing, this resonates with me.

I give grandpa Sam a lot of credit for inspiring me to become "Robecology" And it is simply a matter of social position in life. You waste more - you "throw away" more.....when your income's better.

Have anyone of been schooled by your partner for "being too nice" ?
Robecology comments on Dec 27, 2020:
It's a fine line when you're in a relationship....especially if the other partner's insecure. You have two choices; 1. Reflect on her wisdom...maybe you are being "too nice" and that reflects on her. Consider that she's right...and that you owe her better attention. 2. Reflect on getting caught being excessively friendly in front of her. Were you? Are you tired/bored/falling out of love with your main partner? Think; did you "get your ass handed to you" or did you just get "made"? If you get humble and re-direct your friendliness toward her....you'll keep her. If you get arrogant you're not ready to keep her...you're still "in the hunt" - that might be OK...or you might lose a winner who's got your number.

Mr. Mugica has emerged as an unlikely figure with the power to put the genie back in the bottle. Last week, his lawyer sent scathing letters to the Fox News Channel, Newsmax and OAN demanding that they immediately, forcefully clear his company’s name — and that they retain documents for a planned defamation lawsuit. He has, legal experts say, an unusually strong case. And his new lawyer is J. Erik Connolly, who not coincidentally won the largest settlement in the history of American media defamation in 2017, at least $177 million, for a beef producer whose “lean finely textured beef” was described by ABC News as “pink slime.”

Robecology comments on Dec 21, 2020:
@DBlaine There's a remote possibility that a trace of your DNA remains whole (in teeth, hair, and fingernails, for example; - scientists have found ancient DNA in well preserved remains) but it would take an intentional effort to transfer that DNA to a reproductive tissue (sperm or eggs) to even have a remote chance of "reincarnation" - it's called "cloning"....you might create a "twin" of yourself...but with no association other than looking exactly alike. Only flowers, rodents, and sheep have been "cloned" to date. Google "Cloning" So inform or ask your family or friends to preserve some part of you...then ask a relative to have that DNA inserted in to their sperm/eggs and yea - a similar form of who you are might be reproduced....but with no memories - it's like having a twin of you born after you die...not reincarnation by a long shot. And we have cloned sheep....so if you're desperate speak to a scientist in this area who may be able to save your DNA for a future twin of you...but sorry...no "reincarnation"

When you're young and get high...people laugh at your stupidity and munchies....When you're older they say...uh-oh...mentally disabled/alzheimer's ...or...eating disorders...food addict....not to mention what it does to my B.P.; sadly...my pot days are done...
Happy Saturday Everyone. What are you up to?

Five foot, 6 inches....though I fear that I've shrunk some since my late 60's...
You're all scared aren't ya?!
Robecology comments on Dec 19, 2020:
I have read that vaccines for COVID19 won't become widely available until June or July...so...no...this won't be a good year. I've also read that as our population continues to grow (150 more births, than deaths, per minute, 220,000 more per day) that we are speeding up our pollution rate, our chances for another pandemic, and our rush toward widespread poverty. Viruses are getting stronger, as well as vectors for disease spread....especially mosquitoes! Oh...and ice melt rate is increasing in both Antarctica and Arctic regions. Seas may start rising drastically. Happy 2021, all! It's beginning to look like tough times began in 2020.... https://www.worldometers.info

Mount Rushmore
Robecology comments on Dec 18, 2020:
I get why the did the carving. It was a noble effort. What's not noble is that it was done on land that recently had belonged to the Native American tribes in the area...as were most lands in the U.S.; and we lied and cheated to steal most of these locations. The creation of Mount Rushmore is a story of struggle — and to some, desecration. The Black Hills are sacred to the Lakota Sioux, the original occupants of the area when white settlers arrived. For some, the four presidents carved in the hill are not without negative symbolism. The Sioux have never had much luck dealing with white men. In the Treaty of 1868, the U.S. government promised the Sioux territory that included the Black Hills in perpetuity. Perpetuity lasted only until gold was found in the mountains and prospectors migrated there in the 1870s. The federal government then forced the Sioux to relinquish the Black Hills portion of their reservation. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/rushmore-sioux/

Pfizer was refused financial help by the Trump "Warp speed" consortium...so they went to Germany; Now Trump is touting Pfizer as being the first to come out with a Vaccine....that clearly was NOT sponsored nor funded by any Americans nor him; https://fortune.com/2020/11/09/pfizer-vaccine-funding-warp-speed-germany/

HAS SCIENCE BECOME A RELIGION? - Abdurraheem Green - LDM Show - YouTube
Robecology comments on Dec 18, 2020:
@Affrives So #1; Both of the video participants are of the Muslim faith. So of course they're going to try to minimize/trivialize science.....but they - you - can't. #2. Science is not a body of knowledge - it's a learning strategy. If you practice fact-based information you're being scientific. If you're expressing faith in unproven doctrine - you're being religious - the opposite of being scientific. Science is not dependent on blind obedience....religion is. #3.The best scientists are always open to change. They welcome being proven wrong. The best religious are locked in to the words and sayings of their originators, their "prophets. They try to apply their ancient wisdom to modern life....and they are failing. #4. Science is a process of evaluating and analyzing data. Religion if a process of accepting doctrine. I won't bother continuing to expound upon the absurdity of your video...just let me share these memes; I know you fear them...but please consider them...read them. Welcome to Agnostic.com. Do bring your religious arguments....we here at www.agnostic.com welcome the curious and the fence sitter. You wil learn the truth, and the facts. You will analyze them....you will be scientific...or you won't - you will hold on to your religion. السلام عليكم

Robecology comments on Dec 18, 2020:
There's a strategy that Trump bought months ago...the "Herd mentality". He and his empaths suggest that everyone just "catch it-deal with it - get immunity to it". So naturally...being a "lame duck"...he's going to push his strategy as well as he can...slow down vaccine deliveries. etc. https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2020/09/16/trump-says-with-a-herd-mentality-covid-19-coronavirus-will-go-away/?sh=630b46ad1dde
He is right

Dawkins, too suggested the same strategy;

Robecology comments on Dec 18, 2020:
I think St. Nicholas was born in Greece, and did most of his "saintly" work Turkey! In his later life it was suggested that he had imitators. Interesting side story; his most prodigious activity was the spreading of Oranges as a popular treat. He often did "sneak in" to homes and stuff them in to stockings (actually hanging by the fireplace to dry). The myths about his sleigh and reindeer had some validity as well...he did have huge sacs of oranges that he distributed widely....using his sleigh and reindeer. Of course the Christian trend was to exaggerate everything...so he then was said to "fly", he allegedly landed on rooftops, worked at the north pole, and went down chimneys to leave his "prizes" according to the middle ages myth-makers. Oh...and say "Saint Nicholas" fast a few times...and you get Santa Claus. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas
It is absolutely sickening that when it comes to political gambits, people don't respect the rules ...
Robecology comments on Dec 18, 2020:
I think the biggest mistake we made in the past two decades - that encouraged all this cheating and greed - is the passage of "Citizen's United" amendment to the constitution. It sound's so "user friendly" but what it means....simply....is that anyone can donate any amount - anonymously - to any candidate. It allows what we used to call "payola" or "bribery"...or paying off politicians. It will take a 2/3 vote in both houses and a signature by the president to amend it...but we must. It's crucial; https://www.opensecrets.org/political-action-committees-pacs/C00573261/summary/2020
I think most people feel the same way.

Got all excited when I saw this.
Robecology comments on Dec 17, 2020:
Not surprised. I'm betting that Trump will hop on one of his yachts and set sail for one of his foreign properties; I'm guessing Dubai, U.A.E.- women used to wearing face-masks there, I'm guessing DJT will love the male-dominant society there.
Trump considered refusing to leave White House on inauguration day.
