"Very well expressed Chad.  I especially like your statement: "arguing things back to a point where words and reasoning stop meaning anything at all and is pointless.""

Posted on March 11, 2011 at 2:17pm 0 Comments

Although there have been occasional articles concerning "colony collapse disorder" (CCD) in domestic bee hives it doesn't seem to have risen to serious public concern. It may in fact impact our lives (and bank accounts) in a more critical manner than realized. With the rapidly growing population it seems unwise to ignore any threat to the food supply.

Albert Einstein said, "if the bee disappeared off…

Posted on April 26, 2010 at 12:32pm 9 Comments

Bill Donohue’s Catholic League has reacted to the sex abuse scandal surrounding the Catholic Church by blaming the scandal on homosexuality and attacking newspapers like the New York Times for covering the story. Last month, the organization ran an ad criticizing the paper for failing to recognize the “pedophilia crisis” is a “homosexual crisis” and Donohue has appeared on CNN to… Continue

The Iceland volcano with the easy to remember name, Eyjafjallajökull, is still spewing ash into the atmosphere.

I LOLed reading your "Winterisms". Regarding your profile, I'm wondering if we were twins separated at birth? What kind of science did you teach?

Hey Jim - my name is clay and I just joined yesterday and the first thing that grabbed my eye was your teensy weeny photo and that big-ass grin.  I thought you'd be a cool guy to talk to. Please write - clay

Hi Jim, thanks for friending me!  I noticed you on the Legalize It! group.  What's up with that group, is it dead?  I like your new moniker, Old Smiley!  Maybe I'll see you around.

Noticed that you went to CSU.  I lived in Boulder CO for 10 years. Beautiful town, very progressive, a bastion of the liberal.  I'm in Portland now, also very liberal.  I just couldn't survive in a conservative community.
