Issac Asimov was a prolific suthor. [Link: encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com...]

He was nothing short of amazing. A real polymath. I had a lot of his science books, and learned something new from all of them.

Yes he was. I still remember the Space Dictionary. That was a neat little book of space terms.

more proof that global warming is science fiction

Link?

A retired journalist for The New York Times, William K. Stevens wrote: “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the likelihood was 90 percent to 99 percent that emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, spewed from tailpipes and smokestacks, were the dominant cause of the observed warming of the last 50 years. In the panel’s parlance, this level of certainty is labeled 'very likely'. Only rarely does scientific odds-making provide a more definite answer than that, at least in this branch of science, and it describes the endpoint, so far, of a progression.”

I have failed you denizens of LittleGreenFootballs and I sincerely apologize next time I will resort to using // (even though this pains me it feels equivalent to typing a joke then at the bottom writing THIS IS A JOKE").

We need an official sarcasm font. Like italics with an eye roll.

Thank you please do make sure to use sarc tags in the future.

On the internet nobody can see you raise your eyes or hear you raise your voice a few octaves as you speak.

Always keep Poe's Law in mind... no matter how over the top you try to be, people will think you are serious unless you include a sarc tag or some other way of letting people know you're joking we will have heard the exact same argument from a denier.

Thanks for confirming what I wrote in #55. Downding withdrawn, and consider the fault isn't so much yours as it is the witless wingnuts who say ridiculously over-the-top things like that all the time without it being a joke. That's the main reason sarc tags are useful, especially for infrequent posters whose "style" isn't readily apparent.

You're in fine form tonight Steve.

That VW is priced at $22,500 or best offer.
You need to make that call NOW.

he should not have added the 'best offer'....if the motor is new, it's worth 22k, but BO should not be a penny less than 20k...as for me, for 20k it has to come with a Filipino chauffeur...I do not allow my laundry girls to leave the house

There had been some talk among Republicans of keeping the committee alive so it could be used to mock climate change and harass scientists, but leadership put the kibosh on that idea. It went out on a high note, and on its own terms, so I suppose we can take some small comfort in that.

I just finished reading one of the strangest and most enjoyable books I've read in a long time.

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove.

Here's a bit of info:

Mavis first began augmenting her parts in the fifties, first out of vanity: breasts, eyelashes, hair. Later, as she aged and the concept of maintenance eluded her, she began having parts replaced as they failed, until almost half of her body weight was composed of stainless steel (hips, elbows, shoulders, finger joints, rods fused to vertebrae five through twelve), silicon wafers (hearing aids, pacemaker, insulin pump), advanced polymer resins (cataract replacement lenses, dentures), Kevlar fabric (abdominal wall reinforcement), titanium (knees, ankles), and pork (ventricular heart valve).

In a nutshell, the plot revolves around a gigantic prehistoric lizard whose slumber deep beneath the ocean surface is interrupted by a radioactive leak from a nearby power plant. At the same time, a woman in Pine Cove hangs herself; the local psychiatrist (who has been prescribing antidepressants to everyone in town with gay abandon) decides the suicide was her fault and yanks everyone's medication; and an elderly black blues singer named Catfish Jefferson arrives to perform at the Head of the Slug saloon. Into this already strange brew mix one schizoid former B-movie starlet, a pot-head town constable, a bereaved local artist, a biologist tracking anomalous behavior in rats, a crooked sheriff, and a pharmacist with a bizarre sexual fixation on sea mammals, and you have a recipe for the kind of madness Moore does so well.

OT: "Best medical care in the world" my ass, this system sucks. Now they want to kick Dad out of the hospital physical therapy unit early because he isn't making the "expected progress."

So I can sign him up for Hospice care and maybe, possibly, bring him home, but he has to give up the chemo treatments that are extending his life. I can send him to a nursing home for extended physical therapy while paying about $42.00 a day (until day 100, then we have to pay it all, over $6,000 a month) also with no chemo. Or I can bring him home with only a daily visit from a nurse not much better than a candy striper to help and somehow attempt to get him to his chemo appointments.

If his skin wasn't so fragile that it tears when you lift him, and he didn't weigh 250lbs, option three would be a no brainer. I need to give this some thought and spend the weekend trying to figure out of there is anything else I can do...

All I know is I put Mom in a nursing home for rehab and twelve days later she was dead, I don't want a repeat. I also know that Dad wants to die at home, I would like to try to make that happen, I just have to figure out how to do it.

difficult decisions.

I had to make a decision whether or not to put a feeding tube in my Dad.
I decided against it - the doctor pointed out to me that a loss of apetite is part of the process of dying, that feeding tubes for someone of my Dad's age and condition (heart problems, Alzheimer's) were not shown to actually prolong life - and so it was not as difficult a decision as it could have been.

Please talk to your Dad's doctors and/or get some end of life counseling and advice from a specialist as well as clergy. You need help with this decision.

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove.

Here's a bit of info:

I believe that is by the same man who wrote a very funny book about the life of Jesus.

Would that I could have back all the $$ I literally burned through...

Thank you! A few days ago WUB and Obdi were writing about how productive they are/were when the smoke and I needed someone in my camp. I am useless. For hours. Bad television. Making food and then leaving various appliances on. Falling asleep while smoking. Just not good.

The good news is that I did get a kitty, I was lonely here with both mom and dad gone. He is a greatly loving, very talkative, and extremely playful kitty, I made a good choice. He does a lot to keep my spirits up...

The bad news is that they are going to kick me out of here almost the second dad goes, to protect their 55 and older tax break on the condo complex. My own condo is still sub-leased for another seven months (you get better rates on a 12 month lease), so I can't go back there yet either. Seems I am going to have to find an apartment that allows cats, not easy in St. Petersburg right this minute...sigh, this sucks.

Going back to life on my own also seems pretty scary right now, 2011 is going to be an interesting year I guess.

re: #120 ausador

OT: "Best medical care in the world" my ass, this system sucks. Now they want to kick Dad out of the hospital physical therapy unit early because he isn't making the "expected progress."

So I can sign him up for Hospice care and maybe, possibly, bring him home, but he has to give up the chemo treatments that are extending his life. I can send him to a nursing home for extended physical therapy while paying about $42.00 a day (until day 100, then we have to pay it all, over $6,000 a month) also with no chemo. Or I can bring him home with only a daily visit from a nurse not much better than a candy striper to help and somehow attempt to get him to his chemo appointments.

If his skin wasn't so fragile that it tears when you lift him, and he didn't weigh 250lbs, option three would be a no brainer. I need to give this some thought and spend the weekend trying to figure out of there is anything else I can do...

All I know is I put Mom in a nursing home for rehab and twelve days later she was dead, I don't want a repeat. I also know that Dad wants to die at home, I would like to try to make that happen, I just have to figure out how to do it.

Take a look at this website. There's a link there: [Link: www.eldercare.gov...] that might be helpful.

For two years, when my mom fell into the donut hole (she's also on life saving medication) it was going to cost her $9,000 for her meds. She found two different agencies to pay her costs. Well she paid some. I think you said $42 a month? She pays $30 something. Anyway, it's affordable. One agency was a philanthropic group, I think the Lions, but I'll ask her about it and if you like, I can ask her who she contacted. I know they make you fill out an application to determine if you're truly at the poverty level. Although the definition of poverty isn't the same across the board. One of her agencies took anyone under $40K a year.

Obamacare, btw, what the GOP wishes to repeal, actually helped her through the donut hole this year.

Unfortunately, you have to be diligent with this stuff. Help is there, but you have to look for it. Much luck, ((ausador)).

That is some really good advice and is something I practice with my grandson. My daughter is far too busy doing things with him so I do my best to give him a relaxed environment in which to recover.

Goodness.
For YOUR peace of mind - I hope you're able to reach out to your Mom at some point and make an attempt at reconciliation. Just a try. If it's rejected, so be it. I was estranged from my parents for a good while in my 20's; but I never quit trying and didn't lose contact. And eventually things got better; old issues weren't resolved, but eventually I was able to let go of the anger and simply accept what was. And they did too.

re: #325 ggt

This is similar to your elephant stuff:

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and tells whether you
are qualified to be a "professional". The questions are not that
difficult.

Please answer the question before looking at the answer.

--------

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe and close the door.
This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly
complicated way.

********

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Wrong Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant and close the
refrigerator.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the
elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through
the repercussions of your actions.

********

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference; all the animals attend
except one. Which animal does not attend?
.
.

It's been a major frustration for me that they don't eat crawfish out here, they just use them as bait. I made the rounds of my local fish markets a few weeks ago and finally found a source for food grade (not bait) crawfish.

A big city California lawyer went duck hunting in rural Texas. He shot a duck off a fence.

As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going into retrieve it."

The old farmer replied. "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the US and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three
Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What is the Texas Three Kick Rule?"

The Farmer replied.  "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city feller.  His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees.  His second kick nearly ripped the man's nose off his face.  The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.

The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot now it's my turn."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up.  You can have the duck."

There are indeed different grades of crawfish.

I do check. Especially with fresh water critters I avoid the stuff out of China (and the rest of Asia) like the plague. I found a place that sells live local Oregon crayfish. Pretty cheap too. A few bucks a pound.

Seems strange to me, with all their power, you'd think kitty's would have all the paperwork they need or they would use their mind-fuzz to wipe any idea of their legitimacy from your thoughts.

Except I can't forget that he crossed as a kitten..... hidden in my mother-in-law's crotch apparently. I wasn't there...... just was told the story.

Isaac Asimov and Carl Sagan will always be among my biggest heroes. I am literally ashamed that for quite a while I bought into all the skepticism about AGW...after initially accepting it when I first learned about it back in the 90's. I let myself be swayed by the claims that the science had been corrupted, that the scientists were withholding or distorting data, etc. etc. ...the very thing I ridiculed Creationists for claiming about evolution. I insulted my memories of these two great men and the things they taught me about the power of science and rational thinking. I have a lot of making up to do.

BTW, Asimov sported some wicked 'burns.

That is one brave woman. Bossy is our $10,000 cat. He climbed up my husband's leg one night which sent the cat flying across the room, if you can imagine. About a week later, hubby developed a golf ball sized lump on his inner thigh. We were pretty freaked about it. The first question the doc asked was, "Do you have a cat?" We were like... Yeah! It was from the scratch. We kept calling it cat-scratch fever.

Anyway, it required surgery, hence the $10K cat.

Moral of the story: always clean your cat scratches!

Yikes! I wouldn't want to deter anyone from giving a cat a home. It's not a usual thing, but my rule of thumb, if you see blood, even a little, clean it immediately.

I'm not sure you should be ashamed for being skeptical. Hard-headed, narrow-minded, whacko . . . now those are things to be ashamed of.

No but they have two cats. The bigger cat, a black longhair, does not like beingpicked up and carried and will sometimes try to claw you if you pick her up and hold her.

But it wasn't just skepticism, it was willful ignorance and stupidity. I let myself be taken in by all those denialist arguments, without being skeptical about them too. I pretty much just abandoned my principles for a while.

The cat from Mexico is cool ....... I play favorites.
