That's a very interesting video, shame the Venture Star never flew.

So, how have you adapted to being subordinate to //someone else//?

Isn't just about everyone on the planet subordinate to someone in some way. CEO's are subordinate to their shareholders, business owners to their customers, employees to managers, countries leaders to their voters. I guess maybe millionaires who are just living off their savings are not subordinate to anyone.

What do you plan on doing for the betterment or detriment of Earth and/or mankind within your lifetime?

I wish everyone knew what I know about climate and how we've been altering it.

I was in Air Cadets when I was younger and as part of that, I studied weather.

One of the central factors in the way weather behaves is ground cover. When the sun shines, some surfaces get hot easily, like asphalt, roofs and open ground - other surfaces never get hot - like water, swamp and mature forest. Large surfaces that get hot produce what's known as 'thermals,' rising columns of hot air. By circling in a thermal, a glider can gain altitude, so being able to identify the conditions that result in a thermal enables a pilot to stay aloft longer.

If you take a look at Google Earth, you can see that the earth's forests are riddled with clear cuts, it doesn't matter where you look, they're all a patchwork of cuts. This has made big changes to the way sunlight meets the surface of the planet. Where once old growth forest sucked up almost every bit of light, now fields bake in tropical sun, and pour that heat into the atmosphere via thermals. There are thermals happening all over the place where they never used to be.

How could that NOT change the climate?

On top of that, CO2 isn't causing species loss and habitat destruction, deforestation is doing that. So rather than spending a lot of time and money fighting CO2, I'd suggest focusing on saving and restoring the forests instead. It will pay much larger dividends.

I used to fly gliders when I was 15 - 16. It was anazing learning to read the ground to understand thermassl so I can see what you’re saying.

My school teacher's all said i was a disruptive influence
My bosses have said i'm a disruptive influence. Actually just today my boss took my aside and wants to move me within the office yet again because i was reported as talking to someone and talking is forbidden while working.
So it seems the best i can do is to just stay out of other people's way. I feel i can offer more though, but school, work, potential relationships have never been interested in me at my best. People want others to conform and view nervously anyone who thinks outside the square or is different. People like others to fit in but no matter how hard i try, it doesn't seem to work.

Even though it's all worth it in the end, What do you dislike most about cooking?

I actually like cleaning up, I just don’t enjoy the preparing or cooking part. My wife and I were a great team like this, she would do the cooking and I’d clean up.

Thanks for the tip. Any ideas on how anyone could crack a password on a router? I get about six attempts on mine to log in with the correct password then it locks and can only be reset using the button on the back.

I think blocking is a great way of encouraging someone to spend quality time with those who appreciate them rather than those that don't, and limiting their free speech in that way is "helping" them (hehe)

How you treat your children may eventually reflect in how they treat theirs.

I’m really sorry you had that going on in your childhood. That’s true. Parents are, more often than not, very different to their kids at home, and different in front of others.

That said, I know my mom’s aunt was a very loving mom. My mom used to spend weeks at their place with their daughters. After her 2 daughters and son got married, they left their parents at home. That’s alright. But then, the mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and used to run out of the gates, had bladder incontinence and her husband had already been operated for gastroc carcinoma. They could afford some domestic helpers but were robbed twice by those helpers.

Ultimately, one of her daughters convinced her husband to move to a house near their parents’ and her mom moved in with them.

There are many people who migrate to other developed countries leaving their parents alone. I’m really uncomfortable putting my parents in an old age home. In my opinion, they deserve much better. I’ve had problems with my parents but I have a lot more to thank them for.

In response to “I’m really sorry you had that going on...

I can understand what your saying. My dad has Alzheimer’s and is in his final stage. He no longer remembers me or my mum. Unfortunately there comes a time with a disease like that where it becomes impossible to care for a person in that condition at home. They can’t be left on their own as they’ll either start a fire or wander out into the street and not be able to find their way home. We did what we could until one day he went out during the night and the police found him three days later in a bad condition. So that was when he went into a special nursing home. Now though he needs 24/7 medical support. So I don’t think you can be too hard on yourself when the time comes where you can’t offer adequate care at home. My mum spends most days with him even though he has to keep asking her who she is. Still had the family had the money to hire a live-in nurse then moving him to a nursing home would have been delayed until actual hospital style accommodation was required.

I’ve seen that happen. Although I also know children who’ve abandoned their extremely loving and caring parents.

Some parents can come across as being extremely loving to others but at home and to their kids they can have a dark side that only they see. I grew up in such an environment. My father had problems with anger and alcohol and took it out on us kids but nobody has ever believed that. They just saw what he wanted them to see.

The Federal Government has been funding redundant and cruel animal experiments...."testing", for far too long.

It's true ... part of the criteria for selecting lab animals is their level of intelligence.

I have a friend I tease often, because she doesn't believe we should use intelligent animals in lab experiments - but has no problem eating calamari. She doesn't appreciate me pointing out that squids/octopi are among the most intelligent animals.

Sorry for going off on a tangent but when i was a little kid, we used to have a tv show segment called, The Nutty Squirrels and it was jazz singing squirrels. I kinda loved the jazz feel as a 7 year old and they played it well into the 80's. So just posting a part of my childhood even though it makes no sense at all lol.
