When I moved up to Alaska over 30 years ago I always carried this 35mm film camera everywhere.
Robecology comments on Jul 24, 2022:
The change from 35 mm film cameras to phone cameras came almost as a shock. I recall getting a fairly decent 35 mm as a gift....but- sadly - rarely used it...and eventually gave it away.
I'm thinking of looking into a French press for myself.

Tough call. There's good ones and there's pretty ones that don't do such a good job. I have the old French press around somewhere...haven't used it in ages...prefer the auto -drip machine. They vary in price from less than $10 to nearly $200...beware;

Cute....but his point is taken. There's not much to do once you've been "retired". I tried teaching a few years more...took a job at a Charter school...but the lower pay and more demands hit me hard. I went to substitute teaching for a couple of years more...and then I resigned myself to making urine.

Proud Gunmaker, SIG Sauer’s MCX-SPEAR Can Turbocharge Mass Shooters
Robecology comments on Jul 22, 2022:
For those who are fed up to here reading about more rapid-fire gun makers....basically the article said' "SIG Sauer’s new MCX-SPEAR fires bullets with**Twice the kinetic energy** of those from an AR-15. That means double the horrifying force that mangled the victims of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and left one youngster essentially decapitated. Isn't this good news?

What a Martian meteorite can teach us about Earth's origins: [sciencedaily.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 18, 2022:
I like this question; "One of the most intriguing questions: why Mars, now dry and cold, evolved so differently from Earth, a flourishing planet for life?" And the answer, to those who have studied our Solar system's evolution - is clear. When the sun was larger - earth was a boiling mass of lava...and Mars was very earth-like...and probably had oceans and simple life forms. Then the sun shrank, and cooled. Earth became moderately temperatured....and Mars core solidified...and the atmosphere blew away...and it became cold, lifeless, and with the core solidified it lost its magnetosphere...hence it's no longer protected from gamma radiation...as earth still is. But our future is looking like Mars has become. Despite human abuse with fossil fuels...the sun is shrinking and cooling....so Earth is destined to evolve like Mars is now. The next planet that might evolve earth like conditions appears to be Venus - not Mars. https://earthsky.org/space/venus-map-with-oceans-on-surface-terraforming/
Three Illuminating Quotes About The War In Ukraine
Robecology comments on Jul 18, 2022:
I like this quote - in the article; "None of this is to say that Russia is blameless in this war; if I provoke someone into punching somebody they are still morally responsible for having thrown the punch, but I am also responsible for having provoked it. Russia is responsible for its actions, and the US/NATO/Ukraine power structure is responsible for its actions. Putin is responsible for invading, the western empire is responsible for provoking that invasion. Not complicated."

Sad that we've become this; But the mental illness is a direct result of overpopulation. This was a paper I read in my junior year in High School. 1962 It opened my eyes to "demography" and the cause and effect of population density. Titled, "Population Density and Social Pathology" by John B. Calhoun. It basically said the more crowded ANY organism becomes, the more they act in pathologically violent and intolerant ways. and Calhoun wasn't the first to make the connection; In the celebrated thesis of **Thomas Malthus,** vice and misery impose the ultimate natural limit on the growth of populations. of Any organism. Not just humans. Students of the subject have given most of their attention to misery, that is, to predation, disease and food supply as forces that operate to adjust the size of a population to its environment. But what of vice? Setting aside the moral burden of this word, what are the effects of the social behavior of a species on population growth-and of population density on social behavior? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf

Robecology comments on Jul 11, 2022:
And will continue to do so as long as we increase in population. It's simple. The organisms (not just people - even plants) per area - beyond the idea sustaining quantity - the greater pressure on the environment and each-other. Proven in 1962 by John B. Calhoun. Population Density and Social Pathology. Or...the more crowded it gets the less per organism So - the harder each individual will have to fight/strive/work to make it. True for plants. True for fruit flies. (my genetics students proved it yearly). True for rats. and True for H. sapiens. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf And the reason we see it more every day - and keep talking about "the good old days"?

Keep on playing. I love Kris' lyrics and songs... And yea, he's "allegedly" religious but I think he's just playing to the crowd. I love "me and bobby McGee" and "Sunday morning coming down" and even the pseudo-religious "Why me lord"...but again...i think he's being facetious. I honestly think he's a closet agnostic. I post and share often...even assuming one or fewer will read my opinions...and still fewer will "care". But that's how the world changes. Evolution...not Revolution.
pretty much sums it up

I found this on Youtube and shared it on Twitter. She's so funny! And what she's saying is so true!
I've blocked a number of people lately.
Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2022:
It's a good idea to "take stock" and consider why another blocked you. It requires self evaluation... it's not always the problems of others... .sometimes we're the instigators for those who apparently either lose control or make a poor choice of words to criticize us. So perhaps they are of some importance. Perhaps you do have an issue with disagreement. Apparently you do have some issue with confrontation. I've blocked...and I've been blocked. NBD....but do - for your own growth - reconsider why they did block you....and why you blocked them.

The more crowded it gets...the crazier, the more self- destructive we become' John B. Calhoun published this Population Density and Social Pathology in 1962. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf The population of earth was around 3 billion. Today it's closing in on 8 billion....and the rate of 216,000 more per day Unless we get serious about family planning...we'll be extinct soon; But Carl warned us; https://www.worldometers.info
The debate continues.

It may go down in history as a great quote, OK, maybe not but still funny as hell.
Robecology comments on Jun 30, 2022:
They're ignorant...but clever enough to win votes. They know that a pricey lawyer will get them out of trouble. Gotta give them credit - they have their hands on the pulse of society. They - the GOP conservative blabber-mouths - know that most of Americans are still racist, #religulous, narrow minded, and not well educated. They're the ones that speed on the highway and complain about the high gas prices. They're the ones who get pregnant...have kids whether they're ready or not... They're the ones who shun/fear/loath minorities....but hire them to care for their lawn and kids. But we have to accept....that they're American as apple pie...and even that wasn't/isn't so American.

Robecology comments on Jun 27, 2022:
I'm saddened and dismayed by the S.C.'s POV on abortions and gun control. "Confidence in the US Supreme Court is declining, and that puts its decisions at risk from Congress" https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/usappblog/2018/07/24/confidence-in-the-us-supreme-court-is-declining-and-that-puts-its-decisions-at-risk-from-congress/
"My God says so" is not an argument, and an argument plus "My God says so" is not a better argument.
Robecology comments on Jun 27, 2022:
I concur - and I'm saddened by the #religulous politicians still out there and active in America. Our progress (as scientific minded agnostics) is shamefully slow.

That is so true!
Who else rocked out in a room like this, even if it wasn't yours?
Robecology comments on Jun 26, 2022:
Appears to be a young, progressive, "hippie" "pad". And the origins of the Peace symbol is interesting as well; The peace sign was created in 1958 by British graphic designer and Christian pacifist Gerald Holtom https://theweek.com/captured/737372/origin-story-peace-sign
Speaks for itself...
Robecology comments on Jun 26, 2022:
So true!
Under distress.
Robecology comments on Jun 25, 2022:
Don't be ashamed to display our flag upside down. It's a standard expression of the owner - or nation - being "under distress". It's honorable to do so!
Monologue: Welcome to Right-Wing America | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO) [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Jun 25, 2022:
Bill points out the worst case scenario... But his sense of humor is still there. "If you want to end a young life - you have to shoot them." Love his "fart with bad hair" analogy!
