Actually, I can still make a good stream. I just have to be careful not to wiz in the wind.

Darryl, Dr. Jules DuBar was my Invertebrate Paleontology professor. Interesting story. The book is on Amazon.

I have two dogs that live with me. I see emotions in their behavior. Their enthusiasm when they see me. The joy that display when being petted in my lap, the desire they have for food, etc. Hard to not interpret that in human terms.


But at the end of the day they are just animals.

M-5 I too once knew it all but I was much younger then. Amazing what I have learned that I didn't know in these later years. Continue the quest, with any luck you will get smarter also.

That is twice today that he was told he was full of shlt. The other was Craig on the Oilfield thread. I think he is a good mechanic. Beyond that, he shoots from the hip.

I learned that arguing with idiots brings you down to their level and they beat you with experience.

We all could learn to be better masters of ourselves. Practice embracing the positive and shuck the negative.

I am 66 years old and I feel like I am only 10% the way to my goals.

I observe that people enjoy embracing negative popular opinion. Let me use an example, User X gets on this forum and spews negative crap all over heII and creation and 10 people line up to give them a big slap on the back. Why? Why do people in general embrace the negative? My dad had that fault, poor man. It grieves me that he did that.
