Re: Pathogens in fog?

After last weekend's hurricane Florence, my kid came down with a respiratory illness. It could have been picked up at the doctor's office when he had his wellness check on Tuesday... or the disease might have blown in as the hurricane crossed the hog-and-chicken producing part of my state, picking u...

Pathogens in fog?

I can see this as a possible vector for a zombie pathogen--either natural ancient pathogens thawing from Siberian permafrost and carried by fog, or a weaponized aerosol. "But the fog isn’t just a boon to these plants and animals—it may also carry risk. The researchers detected taxonomic groups that ...

Re: active shooter Parkland FL. High school

Study after study, beginning at least with a 2001 Surgeon General's report, shows that social rejection has a stronger correlation with adolescent violence than most other variables, including poverty, gang activity, and drug use. Here is just one example: People who feel socially rejected are more ...

Re: Former AG Holder ... “take to the streets”

Note that nowhere in the article is Holder actually quoted as saying "take to the streets"; that's the Newspeak...I mean Newsweek...headline.

Re: Active Shooter on Vegas Strip

I dislike being in a contained crowd setting where I am at the mercy of the multitudes and must rely on organizers (and their hired security) to safeguard my well-being. As Manchester showed, you can have good security in a venue, but be vulnerable outside the venue. This incident shows that being i...

Re: Fallout 4......

I started playing on survival mode a couple of months ago. I'm only at Level 20, but man is it both frustrating and satisfying. On this playthorugh, I am being smarter about establishing sensible supply lines. Previously, my supply line map looked like a monkey drew a spiderweb. And instead of build...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I went to the grocery store for regular shopping last night. All the bottled water was gone. It was kind of hilarious. A guy and I stopped to talk about how a municipal water failure in our Piedmont city was among the most unlikely scenarios, and what people really needed was ice and tarps. He said ...

The 2004 hurricane season saw Florida hit 4 times including 2 storms that followed nearly identical tracks over FL, hurricanes Charley and Francis. Ivan was a cat 5 storm that hit Pensacola, FL. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Atlantic_hurricane_season I had close to 800 hours of OT that season....

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I'm in the cone of probability at the moment, in the Carolina Piedmont. I filled up yesterday, but I plan to shelter in place, so I don't need surplus fuel. I'm going to put outdoor furniture away and have my tarps and tie-downs ready in case my roof blows away or a tree falls on the house. I've bee...

Re: Thouhgts on a subaru???

My 2000 Forester is going in the shop for major surgery: it has either a blown head gasket or a cracked block, I think (was leaking oil and water when I stopped driving it). It's been sitting two years, so who knows what will happen. But I'd rather get a rebuild than buy a new used car.
