  1. I'm getting better but the pain is still mentally crippling.

      It's so hard to focus when you're in pain. My heart goes out to you, my friend, and I hope the pain fades as you continue to get better.

  2. I got a major award today (plaque, not a sexy leg-lamp) for my "staunch defense of USNO's interests" in a project I'm working on

  3. My wife, Nancy, passed away the morning of the 16th in her sleep. I am lost, I don't know what to do, I keep thinking I'll ask Nancy what to do then it hits me again.

      Ah Moon, what a heartbreak! She was one in a million, and she deserved a man like you to share her life. Thank you for being that strong person for Nancy and lighting up her world with joy.

      Citation needed. Evidence suggests you've at least learned to read and write.

      That's a whole lot of special all in one place! 

      What's that, Cora Louise? You want a dollhouse AND a rocking horse? Ask your grandpa.

  8. Everyone should be God-Centered versus being self-centered.

    Anyone's god can be anything including themselves, scientists, politicians, spirituals, priests, satan, jinns, magicians, false prophets, folks of people, etc...

    The wise person seeks for the Greater Than the greater and greater and The Most Powerful God to make Him The Centerd!

    And afraid of Him!

    And be pleasured based on His Pleasures and be displeasure based on His Displeasure!

    Even if they are against his own positions[race/nation/country/parents/previous minds]

    Because knows that there won't be any way toabsconded from He!

      I'm really glad NOT to be focused on gods. Fear keeps me from learning, religion perverts what can be learned, and I don't have to pretend my beliefs are better than yours.

  9. I am building  a large styrofoam background for my 75 gallon aquarium to allow me to use plants as filters. Can I post the picture on here and if so where?

      Engineering, or Other Sciences if you think that's broader. Depends on where you want the conversation to lead. I look forward, Moon, it sounds ambitious.

  11.  I don't have Covid 19! test came back negative! Looks like just plain old viral pneumonia! That 104 fever was a bitch! Feeling better now! All I need now is a flight back to NC, CA is nice but home is nicer!

     

  12. Hi guys, I am in sunny California where oranges grow on trees in people's yards and evidently it never really rains! I flew out here to see my son and grandchild and help them get their house upacked and set up. 

    My dad died days before I arrived andIfound out I had inherited al of his properties... Sort of... But he didn't leave a will so everything is in "probate" and all his properties will be sold to settle his debts and I have to make sure this gets done. 

    I named my son executor of his estate, my son volunteered btw. 

    I feel like I went on vacation only to find the sword of damacles floating over my head. 

    Fun fun in sunny CA!

      It rains in the early morning, and has the decency to stop when people wake up. My condolegratulations, sounds like a mixed emotional bag you're holding. Hope you're in good health!

  14. Hey Science people. Caught myself lurking here more and more and I realized how much I enjoy rational people with critical thinking skills, so i decided to log in to say thanks. Shout-out to any of the old regular posters lurking out there.

    1. Phi for All

      Phi for All

      You're welcome and thank YOU. I completely agree about reading reasoned thoughts on a social media platform. I can't stand the inanities that flow from people I know personally on places like FB and Twitter. I find critical thinking uplifting, whereas willful ignorance is just depressing. Glad you're here!

  15. I'm gonna be a Grandpa!

  16. Even though I have not met any of you guys in RL I dreamt yesterday that I was hanging out with a few members from the forum. Really strange dream. You guys looked like rockers but dressed business casual and the setting was an office space. I don't know why I'm sharing this haha

      Wait, like Eddie Van Halen, or like Meat Loaf? Funny, but a week ago I had a dream my assistant told me I had a meeting with a polar bear, so I cancelled.

      They're still calling for high winds, and it looks like it's going to sit on you for a few days and pile up the rain. It's big and ornery, y'all take care. Got a candle lit for you.

      Florence Nightingale was a compassionate nurse, Florence Henderson was the mom on The Brady Bunch, I'm just hoping this Florence leaves your butt alone, Moon. Batten down those hatches, my friend.

  21. How do I delete my account? I was thinking of asking an administrator or moderator but they are probably too busy moderation or doing administration. i did not want to burden them with questions. I want to delete it because I'm not sure how much im going to use it. I used it a lot in college but now I work a lot and i dont have as much time to pursue my interest in science. 

    1. Phi for All

      Absolutely not, that's what we want to avoid. It would ruin the threads you were involved in, make them look strange with remarks out of context and replies to quotes that are no longer there.

      Can I suggest that the "clean slate" concept is overrated? You're much more interesting as a person who has made mistakes and learned from them, than as a clean slate with no history. The past is present in you now, and will be into the future. And really, there are no dumb questions. Questions illuminate our ignorance so it can be fixed. 

      I wish you the absolute best of luck. If you aren't too busy, please stop by sometime. We can be a good reference for learning even if you don't want to participate in the discussions.

  22. It is a good day today. We’ve managed along with my partner to finalize a deal which will let us breathe and gain the peace of mind which we need so very much after bad streaks in recent years.

  24. My cousin Jeff Stewart died this morning. Jeff was more than a cousin, he was my brother in so many ways, the way only a real brother can be. One of the few people I have ever known who was basically a good person no matter what situation he found himself in. It's difficult to wrap my head around the fact a world can exist without Jeff in it.

      So sorry to hear this. It's a great testament to his humanity that you remember him this way.

      Do you want to be blocked from posting? We can ban you and post that it was your idea. 

      Closing the account doesn't make your posts disappear.

      I'm not exactly sure what you want. Voluntarily closing the account looks exactly like not coming here and never posting again. What do you want to happen?
