Robecology comments on Jul 15, 2019:
For the most part, Amazon has beat Walmart and every other product "brick-and-mortar" store for prices. True, you have to wait for good deals a couple of days...and there's more than one web site that tracks the rise and fall of items...so try https://camelcamelcamel.com ...and I think there's others. Google "amazon price trackers". Also, browse Amazon. They have one-day or shorter sales...when some stuff is being closed out...and the prices get rediculously low. One more good thing about Amazon...there's a "sister" link called "https://smile.amazon.com" that lets you buy almost all the same stuff for the same prices...but lets you name a charity to let sellers give about 1% of their profits to them. My charity's made close to $200 in 2018. I impulse-bought a $2000 fat-tire battery powered bike (see image, below) for less than $100....it's too fast and tech-complicated for me...so I'm selling it...but it is a good value....

The stiff joints? No good solution...I've tried Glucoseamine/Chondroitin maxed....no results. The best thing for that is flexibility exercises, walking stairs, staying active. My personal favorites? Total gym, biking, swimming. Tennis. The frequent bathroom visits? Keep a bottle by the bed. There's just no good solution out yet for the increasing prostate....it's sort of like grey hair and that double chin....inevitable. I've tried Saw Palmetto, and the refined stuff from it...max doses...no result. Best to adjust your lifestyle...keep a bottle close by. When flying, keep an aisle seat.

Robecology comments on Jul 15, 2019:
Had a weird diet day yesterday. I found out my sister has a restaurant near her that had a great special on Lobster....so I called her up and said "I'm on my way". I packed two "muscle brownies" (regular brownies with protein powder and oatmeal added) and a 3 teaspoon 16 Oz cup of coffee...and went....assuming I'd pig out today, and recover tomorrow. I had the Lobster... complete with a small cup of clarified butter. I asked them to sub a salad for the potatoes...took the croutons out of the salad...and even had one of my sisters' decadent high-sugar brownies (the gooey type)... Came home (no food after 5 PM), went to bed....when I woke up and weighed myself I had actually lost half a pound! How? I'm guessing that refusing the potatoes and croutons...eating early...all combined to have a good diet day?

Robecology comments on Jul 15, 2019:
I recall learning early, as a teacher...that there's three levels of testing and learning... 1.Too easy/trivializing. 2. Just right/challenging. 3.Too tough/demoralizing. The trick is to teach at the second level; otherwise you're going to lose students....and if you're a student taking a test or a class that's on level one or three...you'll quit or give up early.

Robecology comments on Jul 14, 2019:
I think it's a matter of maturity and awareness. Theoretically it should be harder for us to lose weight/get fit as we get older....for several reasons; 1. We're set in our ways 2. Our metabolism slows down 3. We do less/are less active 4. We enjoy comfort foods more. That's where the M and A comes in - because we now know...that we are older...and now, more than ever, life is precious...and if we want to live a full life.... ....we have to get fit, or face the consequences. You and I, Ed...are facing the consequences...that's why we're both signed in to "battling obesity" I've plateaued...but reading your story inspires me to get busy. I need to lose 10 more...and it has to be done soon or I will not age well. So...thanks...for the details!

Robecology comments on Jul 12, 2019:
"Speaking your mind" can mean lots of things...hostile/accepting, aggressive/passive, warm/cold friendly/unfriendly. It has a lot to do with how your parents and folks influential in your early life "spoke their mind" regarding you....it depends on how you/I were "programmed". If people blocked you and you say "their loss" you're not reflecting on why they blocked you...so you will continue to be annoying (to them) until you become more flexible and tolerant. That may - or may not - be important to you. Ken Keyes put it this way; You may be "right" and be alone....or you may be tolerant and be with more who care about you. Ken spoke of "addictions" (things you must have) vs "preferences" (things you would like, but can do without). He kept suggesting to make all your addictions preferences to gain a higher level of consciousness and happiness. https://www.azquotes.com/author/17975-Ken_Keyes_Jr

Robecology comments on Jul 12, 2019:
The "Mansfield Safety Bar" was not only required for all trucks as a result of her and her driver and husband's horrible death by hitting a slowed truck in '67 but was obviously named in her honor. In 1967, Mansfield was in Biloxi, Mississippi, for an engagement at the Gus Stevens Supper Club. After two appearances on the evening of June 28, Mansfield, Sam Brody (her attorney and companion), their driver Ronnie Harrison (age 20), and three of her children— Miklós, Zoltán, and Mariska—left Biloxi after midnight in a 1966 Buick Electra 225. Their destination was New Orleans, where Mansfield was to appear on WDSU's Midday Show the next day. At about 2:25 a.m., on U.S. Highway 90 west of the Rigolets Bridge, the Buick crashed at high speed into the rear of a tractor-trailer that had slowed behind a truck spraying mosquito fogger shrouded in an insecticide fog. The three adults in the front seat died instantly. The children, asleep in the rear seat, survived with minor injuries. Reports that Mansfield was decapitated are untrue, although she suffered severe head trauma.This urban legend started with the appearance in police photographs of a crashed car with its top virtually sheared off, and what resembled a blonde-haired head tangled in the car's smashed windshield. However, the blonde object was a wig Mansfield was wearing, and possibly parts of her real hair and scalp. Her death certificate stated that the immediate cause of death was a "crushed skull with avulsion of cranium and brain". After her death, the NHTSA recommended requiring an under-ride guard (a strong bar made of steel tubing) on all tractor-trailers; the trucking industry was slow to adopt this change. In America the under-ride guard is sometimes known as a "Mansfield bar", or an "ICC bumper" The death car was saved by a private collector in Florida, where it became a roadside attraction in the 1970s. As of 2019, the car is owned by Scott Michaels and is housed and shown at his Dearly Departed Tours & Artifact Museum in Los Angeles across from Hollywood Forever Cemetery. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jayne_Mansfield
10 Future Predictions From World's Best Futurists [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 12, 2019:
I agree and expect all of them to happen - except the autonomous cars, and two more I'll mention at the end of this comment. Perhaps in many decades; but not nearly as soon as predicted. We like to drive too much; and automatic, or "autonomous" reading of all the stop signs, lights, and other subtle signals that we get in a typical drive will not allow autonomous driving to happen "exponentially". It will be a slow, linear growth. I predict 40 or 50 years until it's common. Going from riding horses to cars took 20 years. Going from desk and wall phones to cell phones took 20 years. Going from No computer to computer common usage took 20 years. I drive an EV (Tesla) - I've had one since 2013... but I predict the same transition rate to EV's as to the above technologies - another 15 years until they're common. But I have the latest Autopilot in my Tesla....and it's not at all what it's hyped up to be. The autopilot still can't recognize stop signs, and street signals....and I like to "drive" my car, not be a passenger in the "drivers" seat...so I predict that this sentiment will be strong world wide. Great and interesting predictions... The other things that I predict won't occur is the uninhabitability of our earth, as predicted by Stephen Hawking. I'm more of an optimist; with alternative energy growing exponentially, and coal and oil now on slow declines in all markets....I predict we'll get hotter for decades to come...but we'll adapt to it better than Hawking forecasted. I'm mildly skeptical about the elimination of hospitals...mainly for bureaucratic reasons. There's too much specialization in the operating room "theaters" that are evolving at most major hospitals. Doctors, big pharma, and Insurance CEO's won't allow this transition to "home medicine" nearly as fast as forecast.

Be considerate, please. The Chinese have been a part of the American restaurant scene for many decades. They've come to America, and learned of our weakness for good, inexpensive dining and take-out. They live in the shadows...they don't make waves. Don't let your stoned condition let you slip in to a state of racism. The Chinese are at the brink of dominating the world. Look around your home...everything you have has a "made in China" label on it. And they've already made more electric cars than Tesla....it's just that our tariff and importation laws make them almost impossible to bring in...yet. A few years ago, they were opening a coal plant every week. Today they're closing one every month, and have more solar and wind farms than America and Europe combined. Here's a scene from "A Christmas Story - the Chinese restaurant" that should leave a smile on your face! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTq20prt0K8 Be nice...and realize what a good bargain Chinese take-out is. Some day that "take out" will be an easy to install solar energy panel for your roof....and an electric car.

Robecology comments on Jul 10, 2019:
I get what he's saying. First let's be upfront. He says; "an agnostic would say, look, I have no evidence for God or any kind of god ...but that doesn't preclude that there isn't a god. An Atheist says he's certain that there is no god. That's not scientific reasoning." Which, makes sense....to me....a science teacher and science thinker. Whenever this discussion arises; I share this....I keep it on my desktop...

Robecology comments on Jul 10, 2019:
I've done research on Santa/Saint Nicholas. The original story of how he came to be a saint is charming; He was from Turkey....where Orange trees were just getting a start (originally from China). So he was instrumental in bringing big bags of them (his "sack") in sleighs pulled by Reindeer to northern climates. where he not only left thousands of the fruit on the doorsteps of the poor, but was known to sneak in to the homes, and stuff them in to the stockings drying by the fireplace. ....so the story goes. ...and like a typical Christian story; that act of generosity got blown way out of proportion to flying sleighs, climbing down chimneys, and doing all of this at the stroke of midnight. Good thing there's 24 time zones, right? https://www.biography.com/religious-figure/saint-nicholas

The easiest, and least expensive way to "do something" about this is to get out the vote. Encourage your neighbors. I suggest wearing and sharing "go vote" pins...if you're wearing one...and someone notices...you give it to them. Then they get the "fever" and buy them to wear and share. Here's my favorite. I'm on my 3rd dozen...the countdown clock is also available, as are other paraphernalia...but the pins are cheap...($17 a dozen) and easy to share...

My favorite is Canadian Cialis (Tadalafil), 20 mg.. Easy to find on-line. Ask for a small sample first; they'll always try to sell you bulk. Tell them "if the sample works I'll order more". Far cheaper than getting regular prescription Cialis.

Robecology comments on Jul 9, 2019:
I've learned early (thanks mainly to good books - Ken Keyes Jr. is a favorite) that there's **Love, hate, and indifference.** **Love **takes time. that "love at first site" is bogus...it's lust. **Hate **is almost the opposite of love; it comes when a loved one disappoints you, and won't work to fix their act....or keeps disappointing you. This is the **"anger"** you are referring to. **Indifference** is reserved for strangers...and if you've ended a relationship, it's a goal to become "indifferent" to the former lover/hated one. When you've forgotten their birthdays, habits, comments, you've graduated to "indifference"...and yes...it just takes time; although being decisive (blocking/removing addresses/phone numbers) about moving toward indifference will help you move on in your life... https://www.azquotes.com/author/17975-Ken_Keyes_Jr

Here's a big one. Impulse buying. I did it last night. I saw an ad for an electric bike for an unbelievably cheap price (I'll attach a pic in a minute). The problem is...I already have a bike, I don't need a new one, nor a faster one. But the price sent me buying. A true "first world" problem. I'll call Pay Pal when they open at 10 AM...see if I can get a refund.

Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2019:
You're actually fortunate that the early dates aren't sexually "stimulating". It's letting you develop your "friend" factor....which might be a good thing. Eventually there might be a date that you're "turned on" to but he's not feeling it with you....so be prepared for that as well. This experience (you turned on, him not) also will let you empathize with the fellows you weren't "turned on" to that lusted to be with you.... Stay loose...and stay "thirsty"....good luck!

The reason it's not legalized is that too many politicians are paid well to vote to continue to keep it illegal. -which funds our prison-for-profit. -which funds our DEA -which legitimizes our attacks on drug cartels. -which allows black market profits tax free. The system of corruption is deep and complex. Don't expect legalization for logical reasons in the near future. The same complex issues keeps us in Afghanistan;
Snake eats lizard eats beetle Fossil food chain from the Messel Pit examined
Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2019:
To be that well preserved took a sudden, rapid burial. That snake didn't budge - so it was a significant amount covering it very suddenly. Good anthroloigical dig. (This also explains why there's so few human fossils - humans just avoid getting covered by accident far better than snakes....although human intentional burials have been important to anthropology. )
Um...I think there's something wrong with your car.
