    While reading the last two entries in the Carolina Bays thread, incidental music from a half a dozen different Spaghetti Westerns began playing through my head.

    I got 10,000 Quatloos on RC.

    Hypertelescope at 550 AU

    Wouldn't a hypertelescope be a bad idea? I mean it would keep moving around; you'd never get a good image. Maybe you'd have to give it some Ritalin?

    Are you asking this for "a friend"?

    Frogmarch's latest blackhole thread.

    Reading the discussion I'm constantly reminded of a meme that showed up after the second LOTR movie came out.

    As a kid I was raised on old movies and bad TV shows, as an adult I am happy to find that quicksand is not the problem I thought it was going to be.

    Asphalt seeps on the other hand are far more horrifying than you realize. Especially in a snowy environment.

    When my brother and I were little kids, my Mom hated for us to watch Danny Thomas' sitcom, because his kids in it talked back to the parents with smart cracks, and got audience laughs for doing so.

    When Thomas' morning re-runs were competing with those of Leave it to Beaver, she'd change the channel to the latter.

    The "Are people redeemable" thread just makes we wonder "For what?"
    Money? Credits against future purchases?

    I had the same thought, though I was thinking more along the lines of "fabulous prizes!".

    From the "UFOs and Nukes" thread:

I haven't seen these hypothetical aliens doing much about that.

    Surely I can't be the only person who wants to respond to the thread "Anyone here done any research into radio stars?" with "Yes. Apparently video killed them."

    Ah yes, I'm soooo ToSeeked Exactly right! I should have checked here. Worse... after posting mine, I thought "Perhaps that ought to have gone to the "when you just have to"-thread...".. and I STILL didn't check!

    I suppose everyone makes the perfect comment in their lifetime. Many years ago after a meeting we were in the pub discussing things. I had said some concillatory about astrology and was made to stand in the corner metaphorically. Then one of us was told she had to be somewhere else but she wanted to stay chatting. She cried oh I could cut myself down the middle. Knowing her birthday I said quietly in the silence following "typical gemini". Everyone creased up. Except her. She came at me pummeling my tummy, I tripped over my feet and was spralled over the floor. Which was even funnier for everyone. Hoinestly some people are/were very fanatical about their science!

    About 1964, I wanted to grow my hair just a little bit longer. My mother didn't like it, and for about 20 years kept reminding me that "the men are wearing their hair shorter now." Right through the sixties and seventies. In the early '80's she said it again. She'd seen it in a magazine. And it was true, for a certain subset of men. I pointed out to her that "Yes, but all of those guys are gay." Last I heard of it.
    That only lasted for a short time, as did my hair, but I was glad not to have to hear it any more.

    Yes, there were a couple of generations there that thought the World-War-inspired buzz-cuts (you had to keep clean in foxholes) were the only acceptable haircut for real men, and some of us had to fight that belief throughout our school and working careers. If you showed 'em a picture of George Washington or Thomas Jefferson or some Civil War hero (not to mention that guy Jesus), they'd dismiss it out of hand, like those characters didn't know any better. The long hair made the boys look like girls, and that was evil! However, if you let your beard grow a bit, surely something that would set the men apart, that was just as bad.
