Sculpture in Ireland dedicated to the Native American Choctaw who donated $170 in 1847 to 10 comments

Ireland didn't forget... and I'm not talking about the statue either.

Native American Reservations have been among the hardest hit by Covid-19 and Ireland has stepped up in a big way to help. I don't have exact figures, but I do believe they donated several millions of dollars as well as supplies.

Well... I can tell you this: when it comes to "stagnant population growth", you'd think that no sales tax and no income tax would be a huge draw. Sadly, the absurd property tax kinda kills it.

It's not about how many hits you can take, its how many times you get back up.

A Civil War envelope 1 comments

Um, probably not actually. Two reasons:
That envalope is far too pristine to be 155-160 years old, so maybe a reproduction? But a poor one for the second reason:

That's not the US flag from the Civil War. There were four US flags from 1859 to 1865 with 33, 34, 35 and 36 stars. The blue fields above are frankly a mess and have at best 24-28 stars. 24 stars dates to 1822 and 28 in 1846. 39 and 15 years prior, respectively.

Now that I understand the scale of the problem it's terrifying 5 comments

Not to downplay Australia's situation, but at one point, pretty much the entirety of the west coast of the US was on fire.

Not only that, I think I could smell smoke... on the East Coast. Probably mistaken, but I don't know.

Hmmm... this must be a different version. The one I saw had a rotary switch with Long Tall Sally, Forunate Son, Gimme Shelter and a few others.

Funnily enough, I just watched a Linus Tech Tips video today about the comparison they ran with a render machine thats half the cost of the PC that stomped a mud hole on that Apple Power Mac.

Sort of, but in a darker, grittier way with powerful guilds. Guilds capable of holding governments, entire planets and even systems hostage to get their due.

As an added bonus to that trailer and in a rare twist, the music was arranged by the composer of the soundtrack, Hans Zimmer...

A full orchestral arrangement with choir of Pink Floyd's Eclipse, the use of which is forshadowing in itself.

Also believed to be a bit of a tip of the hat to the never realised mid 70's Dune movie to be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, for which was going to have Pink Floyd write the soundtrack.

Indeed. Optimism is very important.
From what I've learned before and during this process, you:
- You can't cure cancer, but you sure as hell can beat the odds by beating it into submission... or rather, remission. Do this by following the expertise and leadership of your physicians and nurses.
- Be reasonably optimistic. Take it one day, appointment, diagnosis and treatment at a time. Don't get slogged down in the minutiae of future what ifs and mights. Focus on now, plan for tomorrow.
- Get connected with a Paliative Care Nurse as SOON as possible. They will do their best to make you as comfortable as possible through the whole process. This helps with attitude and outcome with the treatment.

Oh yeah, for sure. I've had the distinct honor of working and training with Marines. Don't get me wrong, they absolutely Get Shit Done, but they also have an almost supernatural ability to Fuck Shit Up.

Smh... you'd think that something new, cool and hip would know better. Probably an executive with an over inflated and undeserved sense of importance had a bad case of "what if we..."

Congradulations Mr. Executive. You might not have shit on your own brand, but you sure as hell tee'd it up for a whole lot of others to.

Well, reduction to 500-1000 years is a big step in the right direction, but there's something else I'd like to add, hinted at above, that takes it a step further.

4th Generation reactor designs aren't just more efficient and produce less waste. They are capable of using the "waste" from older reactors as fuel. I seem to recall that the 4th Gen byproducts have a similar hazard as above.

That's right. What used to be pants wettingly radioactive waste, is now viable fuel for the next generation of reactors.

Now imagine what may be possible with future 5th Gen and Thorium.
