Robecology comments on Jul 7, 2019:
@THHA; So all who align themselves with a party are "stupid"...In you opinion? And "Stop and think"...that's right up there with "Grow Up" and "Get a life". I think. I'm grown. I have a life. Do you know what a Troll is? A Troll, on social media, is "trolling for responses by throwing out "click-bait" to catch "suckers" - to the Troller can say he "caught" someone. caught me...feel better now, Troll? You ASSume that being associated with a party makes you support a military-industrial complex strategy? You ASSume wrong. Within both parties are "Doves" and "Hawks" If you don't "register" with one party or another, you don't get to vote in many like that privilege. ...and no third party candidate has come along....ever...who's accomplished anything worth voing for. So call your names. Act upset and disgruntled. Stay home on voting day. That'll show little you care, and what a Troll you are. BTW; Name calling is the lowest form of debate. Try offering reasons behind your opinions besides your "ASSumptions.

I feel the same....I've joined "Conservative Bless" on FB...a site for Conservative Christians....mainly to debate them. Debating is not "trolling"....Trolling is throwing out easy bait to "hook" them in to anger and absurd responses.... That's not where I'm at. I, too don't expect to last long there...but I do try to "debate" those who name-call and label me as "trollers". I'm sure some have "blocked' me -although I have counter blocked them when they mention something personal that they had to get by going to my home page. But it's not just a "fun" thing for's the "teacher" ethic in me that makes me do it.

It's not yet time for a woman president...nor a person of color. We underestimated the racism and sexism in America. We can't do that again.

Nope...sorry; it's either Biden or Bernie - with a VP of either O'Rourke, or - of the women running...Warren or Klobuchar. I'm hoping for Bernie...but centrist Biden will do a much better job than DJT ever did.

It's not that they're stupid...and calling them names makes them afraid to even read this truthful comment. They're ill. They're delusional But they're not stupid. Let's raise the bar. We have a job to do. We need to persuade these folk that they're being "taken for a ride". That they're being lied to. I suggest you watch, then copy and save the link. It's a much more "polite" way to say what you're saying here...with good arguments that might persuade the folk who "truly admire" this man to "see the lght". Let's be nice to these folk. If you see a confused person on the street and they seem open to your help...calling them "stupid" will just turn them off. Let's be empathetic. They're just suffering a delusional illness.

Kyle obviously likes to hear himself talk. He's awfully repetitive, and obviously opinionated. Israel is well funded by the American Taxpayer; perhaps too well funded IMO...they have over 200 Nuclear-tipped warheads on many wonder Iran wants nukes. "Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance...' But having said that; Harris is essentially "centrist" when it comes to Israel. “Her support for Israel is central to who she is,” Harris’ campaign communications director, Lily Adams, told McClatchy. “She is firm in her belief that Israel has a right to exist and defend itself, including against rocket attacks from Gaza.” Harris’ embrace of Israel — one of her first foreign travel destinations as senator — and her diplomatic response to some of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s most controversial policies are consistent with Democrats’ traditional support for the Jewish state. Her centrist positions on Israel could help her hit back against inevitable attacks from the Trump campaign, which has signaled that it plans to play up Democratic divisions on the issue in the general election.

Robecology comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I have mixed feelings on saving the desperate and ready-to-end-their-lives folk. On the one's always rewarding if you get to see a person with a bad situation get tough and face their hastles..and come out of their struggle with a glimmer of success. But - I might have to check stats here...I'm guessing most continue with a depressing life-situation. Their suffering continues...and so does all who are associated with them. On the other hand....sometimes (again; this is just me) I think it's better to let folks who've reached the end of their rope to not only let them go...but help them. Not necessarily push them, nor ignore them... But if it's "their time"...especially suffering seniors...I see a goodness in helping them say goodbye. I won't debate this with you... This is who I am and how I feel. I hope when I reach that terminus that my loved ones will help me go....

One argument is that Jefferson Airplane got its name from the mythical blues player Blind Thomas Jefferson Airplane. Of course, there was never such a person, but the name was intended as a joke on Balin's good friend, Blind Lemon Jefferson.

I understand your frustration. As a short man who's often attracted to voluptuous's been a problem for me. And we men are in love with curvy...and even "voluptuous"...but we fear/loathe "obesity". I've seen this happen to at least 2 partners. They go from - as you suggested - curvy to - voluptuous to - dare I say it...fat. I've kept close to ideal I have to be honest here....the weight gain is a simple turn-off. Yet women of the past are always a little more appealing to most men if they are, in fact, slightly overweight. The catchword is "slightly". But here's the catch. Obesity is a world-wide disease that's growing rapidly (See the link) -and it's not your fault. Doting parents set you up - quite innocently, really, to overeat. Before you could walk and talk; when you were upset food was put in your mouth. So the challenge is to break habits that are deeply ingrained in us. The trick is to do two things... 1. Tolerate hunger...especially at bedtime 2. Get moving - make sweating a daily habit. You'll be "struck by lightning" more often if you lose the weight. Good luck.

You might want to consider a fairer point of view so you can correct your behaviors before the next "hater" comes along. Please don't assume men hate any more than women do. And consider what hate is. It really is the opposite of love. You rarely hate someone who's a's often a loved one who "allegedly" betrayed or lied to you (or you to them) so you hate that the love has broken down...and the why is not you hate that they no longer love you. Next time consider how you act that leads to the betrayal or the breaking in trust. You may be encouraging the Hate in your partners.

To fellow scientists: How do you deal with people in social settings that speak with authority ...
Robecology comments on Jul 3, 2019:
Good scientists enjoy being proven wrong. They relish it...especially if your proof is detailed or documented well. Pseudo-scientists espouse lots of info but rarely "cite" their sources. They come on as "know-it-alls" and instead of telling you sources, they'll put the onus on you to "prove me wrong". So to answer your question of "How do you deal with people in social settings that speak with authority..." I reply; "as a teacher, I constantly reminded my students that "being a scientist" is a state of mind...not a paid position. If you are a calm skeptic....not rude, not just quietly demand the facts and evidence - you're being "a scientist". If the person espousing the information is reluctant to "show proof" then you've won the scientific debate; you're being the scientist....they're not.

Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Wow! Researchers have suggested that the finding may reflect an example of self-mummification where monks undertook years of grueling rituals to mummify themselves to death. The practice was also widespread in Japan, starting over 1,000 years and continuing until it was banned in the 19 th century. For the first 1,000 days, the monks ceased all food except nuts, seeds, fruits and berries and they engaged in extensive physical activity to strip themselves of all body fat. For the next one thousand days, their diet was restricted to just bark and roots. Near the end of this period, they would drink poisonous tea made from the sap of the Urushi tree, which caused vomiting and a rapid loss of body fluids. It also acted as a preservative and killed off maggots and bacteria that would cause the body to decay after death. In the final stage, after more than six years of torturous preparation, the monk would lock himself in a stone tomb barely larger than his body, where he would go into a state of meditation. He was seated in the lotus position, a position he would not move from until he died. A small air tube provided oxygen to the tomb. Each day, the monk rang a bell to let the outside world know he was still alive. When the bell stopped ringing, the tube was removed and the tomb sealed for the final thousand day period of the ritual.

Living on the beach - and visiting beach resorts on the "4th" - I'd suggest doing that. Many fireworks - both pro and amateur - take their goodies to the beaches for parties and displays. My first video on my phone - ever - was in the summer of 2008 (09?) on the beach in Panama city. The fireworks displays were hours long...up and down the was breathtaking, and amazing.
Look at these wild beauties.

Some people just need to stop, way too much.

If Nixon could release his tax returns under audit, why can't Trump?
Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Not replying to you, @ShyTiger6...but to those who question the need for Trump to lay out his tax returns; if the reason isn't obvious....then you're obviously a Trump supporter....and probably a tax cheat yourself.
What's at least one thing you've done today, even if it was small, that you're proud to have ...

Cleaned the car...just got home from a 3000 mile "road trip" and between the steering wheel (with odors I can't describe) and the carpeting...I had a good hour of hard work to get 'er back in shape! (road trip details; go the the Tesla group)."Tesla owners/drivers/lovers Group"

Slide your cursor to your "profile" in the tinted section near the top (you can even change the color theme). Go to "Profile questions" and that's where you set up your parameters for who you want to meet, range, age, height, interests, etc. Notice that this site, like evolving away from a "dating" site to a community comment site. FB had its beginnings as a dating/comment site in one college (where Zuckerberg got things started at Harvard in 2003)
How do you respond when somebody you have never met in person and only exchanged a sentence or two ...

Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2019:
nice set-up! Why is the computer screen in front of the window....perhaps it can be to the left or right? The room seems dark...and unblocking that great view might let more natural light in?
1 July 2019 - Diet Diary - Just not much to talk about today.
Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2019:
I gained a pound...but had a lot of fun making my "muscle" brownies (high protein, low carb/sugar). I'll watch it more carefully today.
@Admin This is a sort of personal request.
Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2019:
@RavenCT I think the present system is intentionally complex to avoid or discourage massive random blocking. If someone's being a "jerk" - you name calling them is the lowest form of debate - and shows that either you're admitting they possibly have a point to make that you object to - or they truly are ignorant and offensive - but again; name calling and blocking them doesn't address the issue. Challenge them. Ask why they think or comment the way they do. That way you're educating them, and you're raising your own awareness. There's ignoring, as well. Don't be afraid to debate. And don't "take offense" so easily. "You add to the suffering in the world when you take offense, just as much as you do when you give offense." Ken Keyes Jr.
Now there is a religion.

All last summer, fall, and winter I made yummy salsa from the tomatoes, peppers, onions, and garlic ...
Robecology comments on Jul 1, 2019:
That Salsa looks yummy enough to eat directly! I shouldn't read these when I'm hungry....LOL!
