    Greg, thanks for the links. We'll know in a few years if they install the first system. Once it's up and running, and covered on The Nightly Business Report, I will lose interest. Once a technology is established, I move...

    This is a great interview. This goes into my story folders. There’s a 49 Percent Chance the World As We Know It Will End by 2050 http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/jared-diamond-on-his-new-book-upheaval.html So, if Diamond is right, it doesn't matter what we think the world...

    That is a good example of how useful this stuff is for Story. I could never make this stuff up on my own. "There was that kind of negative spin"? See what you did there. You pulled part of a...

    Thanks, the wiki is a good start. I was not aware that there was that kind of negative spin being generated. That comes in handy for Story. As I've said above I have "mad Google skills" but unless I'm in...

    Mark, Hans Rosling would be considered "Left Wing". You really need to watch the videos before you start ranting. He discusses the birth rates reducing, that is part of his examples as to why we won't have more than 11...

    People clearly have not watched the Factfulness link I posted above. This section is the main point about reaching 11 billion people. Watch this part at least, so that people stop saying there is over population and we need a...

    HA! Elderly Cynic @408, with his wiki link is what I am talking about. Pumpkins are orange skinned, and larger than your head. In many cases twice the size of your head. They are used to carve Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween....

    BTW, try growing onions and garlic mixed in among all your plants. The big bulb onions, I forget the variety. The flowers that come up from the onion especially seem to control the aphids. My mom would plant them everywhere,...

    I googled "peeling a pumpkin" and now understand. HA! Never knew that was possible. For decades I would roast, then scoop everything out. So pumpkin has always been mashed, never solid enough for chips, etc... That's why I usually keep...

    Thanks, I could never have found those links myself. Google only works when you can ask the right questions. I have mad Google skills, but unless I can think a certain way, the questions are simply not there to ask....

    That's strange, artists don't waste their money on things either, so why should they be upset. Materials are for their art. We are talking regular people, working, living their lives, doing occasional vacations, then retiring with their saved money and...
