We have a 20 pound weight and a scale on the surface of Earth that we will take on this trip. We have a space ship that has a new engine that accelerates particles of matter to propel it self and can accelerate for years if necessary. We blast into orbit around earth and are traveling 17000 miles per hour. Alpha Centauri, 4.3 light-years from Earth is our destination. The engine is turned on and using our 20 pound weight and a scale we accelerate at a constant 32 feet per se...

My last post on this site was over 7 years ago so forgive me if this is in the wrong forum or off topic or whatever. Not like they would need my permission but the admins should feel free to move, delete or lock this post as they see fit. This post, blog, thread or whatever it is, is primarily to gather my own thoughts as I begin to come to terms with my own mortality and look back on my life. I expect to go into many diverse topics including but not limited to philosophy, religion, the huge ...

I received a nice article in my email from Review Geek, going through photo editors and image manipulation and creation software for Windows systems, paid and free, so figured that in these days of being almost exclusively at home, folks might be interested in the software that's out there, and what each program does, as well as whom they're most compatible with. I'm not going to recommend one or another, as there's no "one size fits all"...there wouldn't be an article to refer you to if t...

This is certainly an interesting time right now. I know many of us around the world are social distancing, self-quarantining, or whatever phrase you are using for it.  So let's take a moment and check-in here and let the community know how you're doing during all this.

You are taking a job on the other side of the country 3000 miles away and you have to be there in one week. You will drive a fully loaded personal truck with a fully loaded box trailer. Each day you will drive 600 miles starting at sun up and you will stop at a motel 6 at night to rest. I researched the Tesla truck and it sounds like you could have a 500 mile range and at a Tesla Megacharger station you could get an 80% charge and 400 more miles in 30 minutes of charge time,...

For 32 years I have lived in the same house in Melbourne, Australia and 5 years more before then - nearby....and all up - about 60 years over 3 places. In that time the population of Melbourne has more than doubled [almost tripled] and in a few years will pass Sydney to be Australia's largest city. Instead we moved to Ballaarat [also in Victoria]...and only the 3rd largest city in Victoria, population 101 thousand.   And that got me to thinking.... The USA has 300 million peo...

Or rather....I blew it... In all my 64 years on the planet I'd never seen snow falling - LIVE. As some might know....I'm in the process of moving home after 32 years in the same house in Kensington, Melbourne [Oz] and am moving to Ballaarat [correct spelling] which is roughly 100km West from Melbourne. Today, while leaving there to return to 'home' I ended up driving in my first-ever sight of snow falling. "Thrilling", I hear you say....but for me it was a novel experience....effing ...
