  1. Stephen Hawking Passed Away 3/14/2018

    Making more of the general public interested in and educated about physics and cosmology.
  2. IMO, it’s just wrong. Science deals in process, methods that help us forever journey closer to reality by helping minimaize the everpresent influence of our personal biases. Sometimes we’re fortunate to learn new facts and arrive at certain truths as a result of this method, but the method itself is what matters. The process is a way to describe the truest essence of science, and it does so far better than any collection of data or facts ever possibly could. Apologies if you feel this is off-topic. I’m sincerely not trying to distract from your topic and will once more watch from the sidelines. I just think people too often misrepresent what science really is and it needs to be corrected at every turn. Perhaps that’s my inner philosopher talking, though <chuckle>.

    Me, too. Sad!
  4. I picked up the Makita MAC700 when we moved last year. It’s 2hp and 2.6 gallons and I’ve been really pleased with it. Would of course be nice sometimes to have a larger tank (though, not for finish nailing!), but I’ve got no complaints. Good piece of kit. Oh, wow. That’s badass and a half!
  5. I picked one up, but haven't had much chance yet to use it.

    Reminiscent of Helen Keller, but better at doing wicked hard math in his head
  7. Made some progress on the practice / mini-table for my daughters this weekend. There are 4 legs and each will receive 2 tenons, so I have a total of 8 mortises to make. Got 6 done with only extremely minimal mistakes (that... let's be honest... nobody other than me will EVER notice). Gonna get ready for glue up and clamping once the next two are done. Also, bought a board and did some test stain pieces so my wife can choose color. I did eight samples... bought a 4 foot board, cut it into 8 six inch blocks, did 8 stain samples. Two coats of stain, 3 coats of Arm R Seal, sanded in between each, then wiped with 0000 steel wool that I rubbed through paste wax and polished off. Wish I could be out there doing this more. Paradoxically, I find my frustrations with work increasing now that I have such an enjoyable experience working solo with the wood. I come off stressful conference calls and just want to go do some sanding and chisel work. It's odd, but I like it.

    I don't really have heroes. Hawking was pretty damned close, though

    It sure makes for powerful photos, though:

    The average intelligence of the world just dropped closer to that of Trump
  12. The North Korea Problem

    I’m unconvinced this will ever get passed the hype phase. Trump cares more about a few good media cycles than actual progress on the Korean Peninsula, IMO. Also... Lots of media buzz coupled with walking away from promises seems to be this admins M.O. on many topics.

    Circumstance Preference Random arbitrary other variables
  14. Mushrooms, onion, and bacon make my kiddo smile, ergo my own lips turn upward from that combo, too
