Goodnight Linnea, Joolz, racehorse, Lastmartian, turtle. I'll try to make it back more often.

20% of Americans believe we didn't go to the moon? Well hell, 25% of Americans would eat a horse turd if you paid them $100. :eek:

Linnea, that's a 2003 Ford GT that belongs to a friend I saw again after about 20 years. Bastard was brutally powerful at 165 mph.

You also have to take into consideration the varying strength of solar radiation, measured in electron volts. The radiation can be very high but the charge on the particles is very low. There are some shuttle missions that go up to 200 miles up, into the lower part of the inner belt.

Also another important point: the tin foil in 1969 was a lot thicker than this thin crap we have today! Hell, you could damn near make a barbeque pit out of that stuff alone.

Well we can go to war, or explore space. I'd rather explore really. Int he article Linnea posted, it states that "a satellite shielded by 3 mm of aluminium in an elliptic orbit (200 by 20,000 miles) passing through the radiation belts will receive about 2,500 rem (25 Sv) per year. Almost all radiati...

I simply don't think the radiation levels were as high as the sceptics are claiming. I'm still waiting to hear them discuss the HAM radio communications, and the part about not finding water is easy- the mission parameters didn't call for finding water. We were doing good to land, plant a flag, bust...

Probably? I'm awake ain't I? :D

The moon has a lot of resources, including helium3 and bauxite (aluminum production). There's probably a lot more about lunar geology we have no idea about because we're not exploring it.

Jeez and I thought I was high. And the USS Maine was a coal fire explosion, not a hoax.

~sniff~ . . . . . and why does this place smell like a stable?

Just tying up some loose ends here; the tiger reported to be loose on Bolivar was never in danger of roaming Galveston County and was captured using a tranquilizer dart. Also, the tiger's owner had a lion, which rode out the storm on a leash by the owner's side in a Baptist church in Anauhac. (that'...

High weirdness in the storm- first, there's this goofball . . . Hurricane Bear Also, there's a report that someone on Crystal Beach had a tiger as a pet. Now the tiger is supposedly loose and roaming the area. To my knowledge no pictures have surfaced. And Chickadee, for some reason a number of peop...

Yes, don't get in the way of a hurricane or Linnea will call you in the middle of the night after you've been hauling limbs all day. :eek: :D Me, mom & Bigfoot the cat are all fine here, no structural damage and three trees broken. Two of those trees were rotten (one was "woodpecker bait") and one w...
