  1. Some Good Fiction Books

    Oh, I really liked Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I'll have to try The Secret History.
  2. Have you ever gone home for a nooner?

    Lol, I read this as,
  3. Happy National Taco Day!

    In restrospect, clicking a link to a “Meat Selector Tool” seems suspect. I should know better.
  4. Happy National Taco Day!

    ARGH!! You jerk, i totally fell for that. Why??!
  5. The Baking Thread

    My grandmother-inlaw from Biloxi, MS tried to show me how. It involved a pile of flour (1cup?) with a well dug out of the center for the milk (another cup?). That gets mixed and then cut in the crisco (1/2 cup?) until smooth. Then use a biscuit cutter to cut into circles and bake. About right?
  6. Yeah, is there a water resources survey yet?
  7. Flat Earthers

    And how exactly are they going to fly satellites around the flat earth?

    Did it work? I was outvoted - we watched Mazerunner instead.
  9. Movie thread

    My 13 year old really wants to see it. I've never read it so I dont know what its about. We watched the Shining together and he did ok with that. Maybe i should read the book but its like 6" thick!
  10. Flat Earthers

    Well everyone used to think the earth was flat, so I definitely think their numbers are on the decline. As far as other conspiracy theorists, I really think the reason they seem to be increasing is because of social media. We never used to hear about them or from them - now they have a platform to get their message out. The solution may be in the messenger. Scientists aren't always the best ones to try to convince skeptics. I saw a cool video about a scientist who convinced the Pope that climate change was real and worth doing something about (Scientist gets the message out). He is someone that many trust and believe in and will listen too, and it made a difference. You have to convince a leader in their community to believe and he or she will do the rest. But don't waste your time on the Flat Earthers...they're just stupid.
