I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Spud, isn't this an amazing thing! I have never heard of this before. 

Tom, getting caught in an eddy must be an adventure. Were you ... afraid? I think I would be terrified.

While floating the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon about 40 years ago, I was one of about 15 people on a paddle-powered raft that got caught in a large eddy. Getting out of it wasn't easy.

The trip was ineffable (too great to be described in words, which implies a second use for "effable").

Thanks Joan.  Until now, I've never heard on an Ice Circle.  Very interesting.

Salmon River Ice circle

"A rare natural phenomenon that occurs in slow moving water in cold climates. Ice circles are thin and circular slabs of ice that rotate slowly in the water. It is believed that they form in eddy currents. In fluid dynamics, an eddy is the swirling of a fluid and the reverse current created when the fluid flows past an obstacle."
