  1. It’s not, unless you believe everything is in our “minds.” That said, the placebo effect is incredible and worth further exploration. There’s also a lot of meat for chewing on the discussion bone of mocrobiome. x-posted w HI
  2. What is faith?

    I’ll wait
  3. What is faith?

    Exactly my point Elaborate
  4. What is faith?

    Related, perhaps, but not the same. One can have purpose to survive the night, oroteft their children, or help others and all without introducing nonsensical unnecessary concepts like faith. Poor sentence structure. It’s basically word salad. With fear of... then what, exactly? Complete your thought. It’s like you’ve written an if/then comment and forgotten to add the Then.
  5. The North Korea Problem

    This one for me has salience. It resonates. The risk of s a coup while KJU is out of country negotiating with other countries seems incredibly plausible and I can easily comprehend KJU taking active steps to avoid that.
  6. The North Korea Problem

    QFT. KJU has already gotten what he wants... He's been recognized as a world leader... He's been given a seat at the table among the "league of nations," and he's now been platformed as a peer. He's been taken seriously by the world, is meeting with the most powerful countries of US and China, and it has legitimized him as a powerful person who has made N.Korea a player. Everything else is just gravy at this point. Kim got what he wanted the moment Trump agreed to meet. Sure, KJU's been discussing specific industry investments from the US into NK with Pompeo, but that's all secondary to his push to develop nuclear weapons in an attempt to be taken seriously by the world. He's solidified his place, been praised by the POTUS as a great chairman, elevated instead of treated like the teapot dictator he is. They got what they wanted already, and the US keeps losing more and more credibility. Are you tired of all that winning yet?
  7. The North Korea Problem

    So, the North Korea summit is no longer happening, but let's address what's MOST important here... Will Trump still get a Nobel Peace Prize?
  8. Thanks. I agree, and that really surprises me. It makes such a huge difference and IMO is well worth the little bit of extra planning/work. It was important to me to do this right and I pretty quickly decided on this path. I also decided not to use static fasteners when securing the top panel to the base. Instead, I created a channel/groove in the aprons/rails and use Z-shaped clips to connect them. This should allow natural expansion and contraction through the seasons without ripping the wood apart or buckling.
  9. Not fully time lapse, but I did take (and post for friends and family) a long set of images from raw wood, through process, to finished product. Thx, mate. Super pleased with how strong and sturdy it came out. Little things like the trunnels holding my blind tenons into the mortises also make me smile. One last shot, this one with the leaf extensions in:
  10. One can only hope. Maybe by then they’ll be able to point a replicator ray at it and each have one. What do you use? I put my name and the date underneath w sharpie.
  11. He and his team have decided not to attack the facts, but to attack the fact finders. He knows the legal challenge is secondary to the political one. I feel confident Mueller already has evidence of criminal activity from Trump and his cronies, lots of it, too. He got help from Russia, probably from the Saudis, and his campaign “officials” actively sought it. His campaign manager changed the republican platform to help Russia. China invested in his properties to get help on trade. The gratf and corruption is there, but the president is the head of the justice department. Can the justice department indict or convict the individual with the authority to prevent them from doing so? Can the courts intervene, or does the constitution keep those powers separate? This is the constitutional “crisis” people are referring to, but none of it matters. I don’t think Mueller will indict him. I think he’ll hand a very well supported, extremely solid evidence based report to Congress so THEY can act. This isn’t a legal issue, IMO. It’s a political one, and that’s part of the reason the midterm elections later this year in November are so critical. Who has power in Congress will ultimately dictate who has control of the Oval Office and accompanying executive powers.
  12. Informative, especially in response to those saying Mueller’s taking too long:
  13. Have a look on tesla's semi

    Bingo. Until then, we'll just keep cutting them down
  14. Have a look on tesla's semi

    yep, just everywhere
