I know a think tank director that lures high caliber thinkers to his stable by a very simple (but hard to understand if you’re not used to it) argument. If you invent or work at something to produce an outcome with your thoughts and creativity, all good. You’ll affect all who are directly involved or are the recipients Read more

Reminds me one of my boys showing me to hold the end of a flashlight on my nose aligned with the direction of where I was looking at night into the grass. I saw lots of little shiny spots at various places, sometimes spaced every 4-5’. He told me to walk up and shine the light down on the spot. Read more

Warning: old joke, have used it before here, just ignore if too old. But I can’t help unleashing it when MySpace comes up every 7-8 years and for all the new readers who may not have seen it. Read more

You might like the audio and book stuff of “Advanced Bird Language” by Jon Young. It’s kinda the next level past seeing cool birds.

Makaha Ridge, Kauai, most western land based military monitoring post in the US. (Zoom in to see.) They might want to strike it. My money’s on Oahu’s Pearl Harbor or something.

Thought I’d just chime in in case something pops (apologies) from my thought. I can’t clear my ears easily either but had to spend hours in front of a mirror or laying in bed just, basically, playing with my head inside. In the end I learned to pull my ears backwards and shift my jaw back and up? to produce a change Read more

Though in no way similar in effect, Gore Vidal’s interview in Vanity Fair with Tim McVeigh back when had the same thing. He admitted he “learned” his response to what he called injustice from the one cultural powerhouse in the country. The government and their responses to situations they didn’t like (violence.)

So I guess we need xrayhole.com where X-ray telescopes register to get notified from “friends” measuring tidal events? Brings a tear to my eye that social media behaviors could automagically result in better science. Read more

I suppose I’m a little surprised that the foodies haven’t shown up. Every “spicy” pepper has a typically distinct flavor that’s a component of what is being presented to the eater (done right, of course.)  If they engineered a tomato with one type of spicyness I dunno if I’d like that.
