Checking on the climate in your town in ~2080

Image
Climate scientists have posted a global warming tool that lets a person input their local big city and it outputs a place today where the climate now is like what it will be in your city in 2080. The input page looks like this: The output for my little town San Diego, CA, looks like this: For San Diego in 2080, the climate will be like it is now in Vicente Guerrero, Baja California, Mexico. Washington DC in 2080 will be like Oil City, Louisiana is today. What fun! By Germaine: Climate science accepter

Beau TFC on why Biden's flubs are different.

Image
  I'm sure we've heard about President Biden calling Vladimir Zelensky "Putin," and Kamala Harris "Trump."  This is very unfortunate, but if  Beau is right , dear old Joe has always been like this, and it has not done major damage to his ability to handle his duties of statesmanship.  The video is six minutes long, but worth watching; I think Beau make a very good case for sticking with the presumptive Dem nominee.

Baby Roars and Meows

Image
  There are many big-cat conservation programs at our better zoos.  One reward for the keepers is getting to take care of baby jaguars and listen to their funny little  squeak roars .  It's also similar how these keepers  play with these GIANT kittens!   Baby leopards, at a month old, make even  squeakier noises !   And here are some little squawks from  lion and tiger cubs! For comparison, check out these little domestic Toyger  meow-squeaks! Posted by Jennifer A. Nolan

Philosophical Queston #25 -- Life

Image
Here’s a common theme off my list of philosophical questions: What is the meaning of life? Is there a reason for life and what is it? Is the most important purpose in life happiness? If not, what is? Yes, philosophers have been wrestling with these same questions about life for eons.   And we’ve gotten a wide array of answers from the greatest thinkers that ever lived. So, how do you see the answers?   Do you tend to approach the answers philosophically, coldly/analytically, biologically, other?   Talk about the meaning of life. (by PrimalSoup)

Passwords…

Image
How long is your longest password?   Mine is 15 alphanumerics long. How short is your shortest password?   Mine is 4 long. Is yours easily guessable (kid’s birthdays, pet’s names, the word "Password,” etc.)? Who all knows your passwords, other than the sites you use them on? Monkeys, like those who could retype Shakespear’s works if given enough time, could try to guess my longest password from here to eternity, and never guess it.   It’s that bizarre.   But my fingers know it by heart (there’s a visual). 😁  They can type it like a piano concerto.   Talk about passwords today.  Any horror stories to share?

Whaterya ‘spose to do?

You give to a charity because it touched your heart.   The next thing you know, they are pounding you with “freebees.”   Yesterday, we got a light-pen from Doctors Without Borders.   My husband, who brought in the mail said, “Look what Doctors Without Borders sent us,” as he flashed around the pen, seemingly very impressed with the bobble.   I said, “But I don’t feel right keeping that, if we don’t send in a donation.”   He said, “Do whatever you have to.”   He’s very accommodating like that. Oh, I’ve gotten tote bags, calendars, address labels, and gobs and gobs of scratch pads.   WTF?   Talk about imposing a guilt trip. 😠 I mean, what is a person supposed to do?   Just toss the so-called free item?   That doesn’t seem right.   WWYD? So, what do you do with the dot.org./charity stuff they send you?   If you send another donation in, are you just enabling the problem? Do orgs actually get the full donation, or is some siphoned off by the [a-hem] “middleman?” How do you h
