    Sounds vaguely reminiscent of the Hatfields and McCoys what with all the distant relatives involved. The cousin's not even directly related to his former boss. And the former boss didn't even have...

    Welcome Rene. Surprised I'm the first one to greet you as there are usually tons of friendly types here. Lately it seems the world is under some surrealistic depression, not entirely of the economic...

    Interesting. Bob and Doug thought the Dragon launch is rougher than the Space Shuttle launches were. I would have thought the solid rocket boosters would burn less smoothly than 100% liquid fuel. And...

    Anyone see video of the Falcon 9 sticking the landing? What I saw was cut-off just before-hand and then it was suddenly there on the barge. That would mean video cut out from two cameras, right?
  7. Yes? ... It's a go! Yeehaa!

    Yes?

    It's a go! Yeehaa!

    I think depression is due to being frustrated in fulfilling one's perceived purpose. Transcending then. Connecting the then of the past to a then of the future. If one lacks this perceived continuity...

    I like trees. Loved to climb them as a kid and an unabashed hugger of them as I grew older. Now I just like to watch them grow. I just placed an order for a Kousa dogwood and Princeton Elm for the...

    Kant had the idea that animals don't matter in themselves, because they don't reason and are not autonomous. They're not an "end in themselves" but (exactly as with Aquinas) their end use is for...

    The family's granny died and they wondered what it would taste like so they cut her up and put her on the grill. It's a moral issue because it's too similar to cannibalism. The family dog is a pet...
