What Appears to be Wrong in this Pic (Before you say not a damn thing……..)

So, what is amiss in this photo? No sunglasses? No top? No fly rod? The level wind held wrong side up? Nope, while you are looking at a lass young enough to be your daughter or lil’ sis, you should be back at camp…(ok forget the apparent confusion over a roaring fire and a half naked gal on the dock)…get back to camp….and if time allows, get this babe in the sun too…just a touch.

“We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn’t pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does “try my best to be just like I am,” and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.”

Leading your foot by the fingers


foot1You  have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe  
this!!!   It is from an orthopaedic surgeon………… This will boggle your mind  and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can’t.  It’s pre-programmed  in your brain!

1.  Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY……)  and  while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right  foot off the floor and make clockwise  circles.

2.  Now, while doing this, draw the number ‘6’ in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

I  told you so!!! And there’s nothing you can do about it! You and I both  know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try  it again, if you’ve not already done  so.


Science (theory v. truth….)

Theories, What if’s, Maybe’s, Probably, Might, May, Could, Possibility…do you ever notice those words as you sponge up one absolute after another?

” In science, the truth is always a moving target. Science is all about theory du jour, not Truth. Religion is about Truth, but science is about theory-making, theory-testing, and theory-changing. Every theory is supplanted, eventually. Scientists know that. Theory-imagining is what makes science creative and fun – an art, in many ways. There never will be any such thing as “settled science.”


Mining Projects News (Power of the Pebble)

The Mining News is a good resource to research proposed projects and areas at risk, or not at risk depending upon who’s ox is getting gored I spose. So the permitting process is the next big step while hundreds of test holes are being drilled now. My novice question is…can the Feds force this issue (Obama, Browner, Salazar) re State Lands? Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I can answer that??  

“By virtually any measure – volumes and grade, continuity of mineralization, resource confidence, potential for expansion – Pebble must be considered among the most important mineral deposits in the world,” said Northern Dynasty President and CEO Ron Thiessen.

“A modern, long-life mine at Pebble could produce one-quarter of America’s domestic copper supply for 50-plus years, along with substantial volumes of gold, molybdenum and potentially other metals such as silver, rhenium and palladium. Along the way, it would generate thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in annual economic activity for the people and communities of Alaska.”

The Pebble Limited Partnership was established in July 2007 as a 50:50 partnership between a wholly-owned affiliate of Northern Dynasty and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anglo American plc. Under the terms of the agreement, Anglo American funds $1.425 to $1.5 billion of project costs to acquire a 50% interest, including expenditures of US$180 million in 2007/2008. The Pebble Partnership is currently preparing a Prefeasibility Study for the Pebble Project, and is expected to enter the federal and state permitting process under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 2010.
