You must keep the 'mothership' --- I think you'll need it, and soon. The slip rental expense must be a 'mother' itself nowadays.

The problem is my family's lack of interest in sailing. Sigh.

That's awful. Sailing is so much fun.

Sorry I was one post off. I was thinking of the mammoth crap, and reading your post. Somehow I merged the two in my mind.

My feet are cold....I hope I don't contribute to the problem

Just in case, you'd better go outside and empty a few aerosol cans. That oughta balance things out.

Good grief .. I just spent a fortune on bathing suits and umbrellas! I thought we were having GLOBAL WARMING instead.

You know,

It's ironic that I have been saying that scientists have thier heads up thier arses for years. I still have my High School text book, Copyright 1973, written by a bunch of college educated science teachers. It made no bones about telling me that the earth was going to freeze as a result of man's pollution.

I quote;

In regards to Oil polution on the Sea:

"A film of oil on the sea surface prevents evaporation of water and also interferes with (...) the transfer of heat to the air."

and regarding "particulate" polution:

" There is increasing evidence that various kinds of particulates released into the air by man's activities are responsible for the recent decrease in temperatures"

Can anyone say, these arseholes haven't got a clue, other than to blame mankind for all the ills of the world!

I've read it all regarding global warming, global cooling and cow farts. I've come to one conclusion. Scientists should be economists as moonlighters. Niether has the first damned hint of what they talk about, they are professional guessers. Too bad they're still writing textbooks, pushing thier anti-human rhetoric, for my own child to read.


Did you know the Earth had an "Albedo", Is that like a Libido, without the need for latex?

It's fun once you're out, but getting a big boat ready, and then "putting it away" is a lot of work. It's really too big for a day sailor, and my family isn't interested in coastal cruising to the channel islands or such.

This is in Poway, CA. I used to live in this burg. Virtually all the land in this area has these huge rocks like you see here. There are thousands of them, some as big as houses. They didn't grow there, they were pushed... by a glacier. When the glacier melted they were left behind.

This is less than 30 miles from the Mexican border.

That means that when it starts getting cold, we in the North need to take over the Middle East, Equatorial Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, the warmer sections of Central and South America.

Just down the road the official snow fall for the year is 210". Does that count for an ice age?

Keweenaw County? My mother has a photo of dad next to that sign that was taken about 50 years ago.

This looks like Texas Canyon, located in Cochise County, AZ. It is also less than 30 miles from the Mexican border.

I've seen Devil's Canyon from I-10 east of Tucson, but I don't remember as many trees as in that picture.

Actually, I only remember the rocks, HUGE rocks, And lots of 'em. And the car rental counter guy telling me to watch out for the winds when I crossed the canyon.

How will cheap space travel inevitably follow nanotechnology?

Lots of ways. All the components of rockets will be about 95% lighter because they are made of diamonoid materials that are self healing and grow from seeds. We will be able to grow the cables necessary for "beanstalk" type surface to geostationary orbit elevators. Energy will be on the order of .01 cent per kilowatt, because we will be able to pave the roads with solar collectors and use molecular distortion batteries or even plain old hydrogen to store the energy. Use solar powered lasers to provide the energy to focus on reflective rocket nozzles to push rockets into orbit with minimal reactive mass. Use linear electric accelerators to throw fuel , food and water, and construction materials into orbit, leaving the relatively slow and expensive systems to transport people.

These are just a few ideas off the top of my head. I am sure that when the time comes, more sophisticated methods will surface, but all of the above become cheap with full blown nanotechnology.

Thanks for your reply. I remember now reading about the tethered "space ladder" and some of the other things you mentioned.

Hope we live long enough to see it.
