    Miami and Key West Geeks

    I don't think I ever read Hemingway. My HS American Lit teacher hated him with the passion of a thousand burning suns, she was not shy about it. A friend of mine (mostly A student) decided to do his final report on Hemingway anyway. Teacher gave him a C-. I think he learned an important life lesson that day.
  2. How much would it take to marry a morbidly obese woman and be faithful to her for the rest of your life?

    Storm Area 51: they can’t stop us all

    I'd sell them on the way in, not out.

    This is how DT will win AA votes

    OP said "votes", not "the vote".

    What concerns do you have coming up?

    Hope it works out. From my end there is a decent chance I'll lose my job in the coming months. Long story I'll maybe tell when I have time.
  7. Since we all make Geek Club bank we can find a cool mil in our couch cushions. So let's use "enough to live comfortably the rest of my life." Answer is still no. I value my health and mobility too much. My FIL can barely walk 25 feet without stopping and leaning on something to catch his breath. No thanks. If I were poor and had a chance to provide a better life for my kids, I'd consider it.

    Xenophobia

    By that definition the left is absolutely more bigoted than the right. There is zero tolerance from the left of any beliefs or opinions which differ from theirs.

    Top 20 Acoustic Guitar Intros of all Time

    Agreed, that is definitely top 20. There were a few songs there where I was meh, but mostly great stuff.

    Xenophobia

    There is one just west of Phoenix; Palo Verde. Old technology but humming along. In fact they keep building houses closer and closer to it (maybe past it at this point). Nobody seems terribly frightened.

    Xenophobia

    Nuclear reactor technology has come a long way since those were built. The odds of a disaster with current generations are extremely low. But I suppose much like you are way more likely to die in a car than in a plane, if there is a plane crash it is major news while thousands die in cars, ho hum. That being said I disagree with your reasoning and maintain that the cult of global climate change doesn't really want a solution other than brow-beating humankind.

    Xenophobia

    I accept that the earth is (very) slowly getting warmer. My problem is that there are viable alternative energies like nuclear which the climate alarmists are not embracing. Why? Because they are an anti-human cult which is more interested in browbeating people for living and in extorting billions of dollars through fear and carbon credits. College is more expensive than it used to be (and than it should be), but people make poor choices. All 3 of my kids are going/went to ASU. In-state tuition is $10.7K, but they all got scholarships to cover the bulk of it. If not it would have been more than manageable for me to pay. For lower income families, there is plenty of financial aid. As an example in contrast, my daughter's friend is going to Pitt. He has family there and thinks it will be cool (it will be come January, he has no idea!). Out of state tuition is just under $30K, or about 3X what he would pay to stay here (plus save on travel, parkas, etc.). At least he will study something with a chance of recouping the cost (pre-med, with a goal of becoming something like a nurse-anesthetist). The kids who both go out of state and major in areas which will practically never turn into a sustainable career... eesh.
