Bio

Low-maintenance woman from Southern Wisconsin.

Sandiai That's a rather personal question. OK, I'm typing into some sort of blog, of which I am only vaguely familiar.
9:54 PM yesterday Sandiai commented on Elon Musk Wants to Colonize Mars; Would-Be Martians Should Be Ready to Die on the Journey.
@10, "any extinction level event." That pretty much is why we're doing this... to save the human race from extinction. I also think we'll have fusion reactors fairly "soon," which will help with a lot of the problems we've been discussing.

@6, your instincts seem a little off lately, Venn.

@8 and @9, yeah. I was creeped that LW was worried about their sex lives, or even just thinking about their living/sleeping arrangements. Let them take care of their own family needs, whydontcha???.

I also grew up under very cramped conditions (nothing interesting; we were just poor), and you learn to deal. But it's also why I like my space, now that I have choices.

About the SLLotD...OMG, Talk about it!

@9, He's Queen Elizabeth The First, for me. The Virgin Queen. His use of the Royal "We" seals the deal.

@35, Oh Arty, is rehab making you grumpy? In a few months, my friend, it will all seem like a bad dream. Your brain cells can regrow and recover; trust me on this. But, giving in to negative emotions is actually rather destructive...so avoid that, if possible.
Sep 26 Sandiai commented on Gary Johnson Is a Moron (And If You Vote For Him, You Are Too).
@3, I have two solidly-Libertarian colleagues. They are interesting characters. They are upper upper Middle Class, rather selfish and lacking in empathy... but smoke pot daily (which I've found to increase empathy, but maybe that doesn't work for everyone?). And they think Johnson is a world class clown, as you say. I think they are both voting for Clinton (because they are not idiots).
Sep 26 Sandiai commented on Science News: The White Cops Killing African Americans are the Recent Descendents of Africans, and the Science of Presidential Debates.
@7 (I believe she meant paleontologist).

@8, thanks for clarifying. And sorry for yelling at you. I just prefer my science to be unbiased (as in, apolitical). You were sounding like Charles there for a minute. But I really do appreciate everything you contribute here. Good science writing is so rare, and to have it here, for free, is a huge treat.
