Re: mud slide patagonia between chaiten and futa, destroys santa lucia

Could this have been caused by over-logging of hillsides upstream from the town?

Re: The Trump Administration

Whether Alabama supports or not Trump is only part of the issue. Alabama supported a 'child molester', as Moore was called in some articles. ... Most, if not all, of those last minute (but 40 year old) staged accusations have been thoroughly debunked. I note that not one of the accusers has sworn o...

Re: The Trump Administration

Hmmmm....a Democrat just won a Senate seat in a state that Pumpkinhead won by 30 points just about a year ago.....perhaps a hint of what lies ahead in the 2018 mid/term elections? One can only hope..... Being in Alabama, the situation is more complicated... There was a good republican candidate, Mo...

Re: North Korea

... For a third world s#it hole with zero resources and trade embargoes up the wazoo, they sure have ramped up fast. They completed the Manhatten project AND, now out of the blue have missiles with the capability of hitting any target on the globe. Wasn't it just like 6 months ago where they were a...

Re: BCG Vaccine

Wasn't the vaccine-autism link completely debunked ? The doctor who started the scare was found to be a fraud in court in England. He faked the data.

Re: hydraulic or geo-engineer to find water table

for anyone who may have asked.... the 3 mm PVC pipe was actually the well casing. Another smaller pvc pipe was inserted into that one for the water. Now it makes sense. What was the diameter of the casing? Before it collapsed? This catalog has dimensions for schedule 40 and schedule 80 pvc pipe. ht...

Re: hydraulic or geo-engineer to find water table

.... it lasted 5 years before the 3mm central hydraulic tube collapsed. The well is unusable. I must dig another well but first I want to find the water table and the best location. So it seems that the old well worked ok for 5 years. Then the "central tube" collapsed. I presume there is an outer t...

Re: Thoughts on the State of Europe

GDP PPP is a size-of-the-country metric but even there it's below Germany and closer to Brazil or Indonesia. For GDP PPP per capita it's around the 50th place. Russia's economy is the sixth largest in the world and it's military is the second biggest and strongest in the world. What more is there t...

Re: Thoughts on the State of Europe

I really can’t see WW3 coming from European infighting? Really? Where did the first two world wars originate? For that matter where have the majority of wars in the last 1000 years taken place? You will find that wherever there are people, there are wars. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_...
