    The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    I'm going to my first basketball game of the 17-18 (pre) season tonight! Warriors vs Kings, it's great to be back! I excited for the new look of the Celtics, Thunder, Rockets, Cavaliers, and Lakers. The NBA learned from all the injuries in last season's play offs to reduce the back to backs, so this years level of play is going to be pretty high! Go Warriors!

    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    I think that there is "something special" about April 27th, 1969. The performance is epic and the interactions between the crowd and the band, or at least Robert are unique. Plant's not yet to his cocky confidence, even sounding a little sheepish while the crowd waits for adjustments to Bonzo's snare. As the show progresses RP banters easily with the audience. "Oh, is this a going away present?" Panties or a joint? πŸ˜™

    The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    So far all six Conference Finals have been blow outs! ( the second Celtics/Cavs game was a little closer until the end...) But, damn, this is as boring as last year's playoffs...

    Random Thoughts v.3

    My parent's house was in an upper middle class neighborhood and those folks are just as destructive, arrogant and entitled as any other group I've met. You can make money, even a living, renting property but you're going to work for that money...

    Random Thoughts v.3

    But it is a lot of work, you earn that money! When my parents died, the market was down so I rented their house instead of selling. I hired a rental property management company but it was just one thing after another: repairs, damage from tenants, complaints from neighbors and the HOA, etc. I wouldn't do that again, already have a job!
  10. Have you read Robert Anton Wilson's The Illuminatus! Trilogy ? It's the book that brings together all conspiracy theories and unites them under one great conspiracy, The Illuminati! But, to me it seemed like an inside joke for everyone who studies this kind of stuff, a satire. Now everyone has taken it as truth and run away with it. Get the book and see for yourself what you think...
  11. Hmmm, Good points here! Confirmation Bias plays a roll... https://www.fs.blog/2017/05/confirmation-bias/

  13. No fossil evidence for a previous race on intelligent beings on this planet, our most ancient ancestors are only 1.8 million years old. However there is good evidence of a civilization in Egypt before the Old Kingdom. My degree is in geology and the weathering on the limestone of the Spinx suggests that it is either older than the Old Kingdom, or that the environment was much wetter in the past.
  14. UFO's are real! It just means Unidentified Flying Object, if you can't identify it then it's a real UFO. Have we been visited by "aliens"? I haven't seen any convincing evidence. If we have, they must have figured out some different technology because the Universe is so darned LARGE. One "Conspiracy Theory" that really bugs me is the "Faked Moon Landing". Almost every bit of so-called evidence has been debunked, yet people continue to use "Were you there?" as "proof". I'm getting worried that we are living in the new "post-facts" era. This push for equality and inclusion has resulted in my hackneyed, un-researched spoutings being given equal merit compared to your, well researched, long term studies! No one benefits from us being less informed!
  15. "It's a conspiracy!" πŸ˜†
  16. Yeah, "chemtrails", the list is long: vaccines, fluoride, area 51, flat earth, Taco Bell illuminati lizard aliens... Thank God for sites like Factcheck.org, Politifact, Snopes, etc. Too bad so many people are immune to facts...

    The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    The first round was much better! This is not quite as boring as last year when the basketball injury Gods decided the playoffs, however! Looking forward to a real battle between the Celtics and Cavs, but I don't think GS vs. Rockets will go 6, Houston just doesn't play much D...

    Can we stop with Elvis being β€œKing” of Rock and Roll

    No one can deny that Elvis was the first "Rock Star". (And the biggest of his generation too.) Of course there were better singers at the time, and better guitar players than Scotty Moore but being a Rock Star is not about technical ability, some of it is about ATTITUDE, and Elvis had "IT"!

    Astronomy - Planets , Stars & Heavenly Bodies

    Earth and Jupiter will be very close together tonight. It's a great time to observe the giant planet, a pair of binoculars will reveal the four huge moons. The inner most makes an orbit around the 88,000 mile wide planet every 12 hours! By contrast, the Earth's moon takes over 28 days to orbit out 8,000 mile wide planet. A small telescope allows you to see the shadow cast on the gas giant's surface by the moons as they traverse the visible side of Jupiter. https://www.yahoo.com/news/jupiter-opposition-planet-brightest-tuesday-134000107.html
