Course DiCaprio only assumes green for his jet.
And I only am thrifty because I want a Model 3. Even if I did not know that like when before the Model 3 was announced.

It is just human.

The Stanford (University) Underground Research Facility is operating neutrino experiments deep underground at the old Homestake Gold Mine in South Dakota.The hard rock there is especially good at blocking cosmic rays.

I'm unsure about the rest of the world,but around here,'economical' is almost an obscenity.It's only for 'losers.'

It's nothing new. When I was in high school protocol was that if you were driving home in your church clothes and saw a field fire, you stop and go right out there in you good shoes to help stop it.

The two week forecast shows 8 days in the low 90s. Today it's 49/83. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood.

If you do, don't drive into smoke you can't see through. 1988, seven dead, 21 vehicles:

https://www.oregonlive.com/data/2015...eup_kills.html

Quote:
Witnesses likened the highway scene to a war zone, with blackened, crumpled vehicles, burned trucks and charred grass stretching for about a half-mile. Wood chips in a burned truck smoldered for hours after the crash, and the smell of smoke hung heavy in the air.

One survivor, Jimmy Phillips, said all he could hear during the crash was ''glass busting, metal crushing and the screaming.''

Kevin Sterba, driver of the chip truck, said everything happened so fast it was hard to determine the chain of events.

The 22-year-old Philomath man said the smoke had lowered visibility, so he was driving slowly with his lights turned on. Suddenly, he said, there was ''just a big, heavy cloud of smoke. It was just pitch black.''

He braked and bailed out of his 45-foot rig. ''It was in flames when I got out,'' he said. ''As far as I could see there were flames in front of me.''

Guess Martenson needs funding for his Survivalist bunker, just like everyone else.

Still, all true and scary. The Ponzi scheme that keeps on growing.
