Re: Good Vibrations

Back when I did my thesis, when 1999 would eventually roll around, and considering the average life expectancy at double the then current projections, there was no way SS would ever become insolvent. In fact, it would continue to have increasing excess funds if they didn't up the amount being paid o...

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

The frau has a Schmartz-Fone she can talk to to search the web, but if it has a call screening feature, she doesn't know about it.

I guess some day I'll have to move up from my flip-fone to a Schmartz-Fone, but they are going to have to be able to block all incoming text messages first.

Re: Fight Back the Phishers

I've actually taken the time to deal with some of the robocallers on my cell phone. I would listed to their spiel long enough to get contact information. Most of the time this required working my way through their prompts to get to a live person. This didn't always work, but sometimes it did, and I ...

Re: Good Vibrations

My college thesis was about the Social Security System. Technically, it is the most marvelous system ever developed, even if it did begin more like a Ponzi Scheme, it was necessary to start that way. I don't remember the exact dates anymore, but there was a short lag time after SS started until it b...

Re: Microsoft Is Amazing

I messed myself up when I set up the Google+ account, which uses the Bookmark Bar in my Google Browser. At the time I joined Google+ it was for my publisher, so I used my author account to set it up. On the bright side, I can access my Bookmark Bar on all of my devices by signing into my author acco...

Re: Good Vibrations

I don't disagree with anything you said above. Gonna change the topic here although it is relevant to the above, as far as income vs cost of living goes. I had to spend a fortune in attorney's fees to get the small amount of social security, because at first they claimed I have no benefits at all co...

Re: Microsoft Is Amazing

I tried the fake account by using a gmail address and password. Still wouldn't let me use the link my brother sent to my real e-mail account. So he sent a link to my new fake account, and it wouldn't work because I have to install an exe program to access the online OneDrive system. I've invited sev...

Re: Good Vibrations

The soda water companies all claim to try and address the diet and diabetic market in a positive way. Unfortunately, in their quest, they often play dirty pool. They came out with Coca-Cola LIFE, and Pepsi TRUE, made with Stevia, however they also contained sugar. They were reduced calorie, but stil...

Re: Microsoft Is Amazing

Glad they got you up and running again. Shame you had to lose all you built up to in the game though. As far a Zynga goes. I tried several of their games, and every one had the same problem, probably to do with a lousy engine they developed. As they tried to fix the problems, they only went from bad...

Re: Good Vibrations

50% of Americans drink soda. 9.4% of Americans are Diabetics. If only half of them drank soda that would be a 4.7% market share, which is nothing to turn your nose up at. Most major national companies consider having 1/2 of 1% of a market share as 100% saturation of the market for their product. As ...

Re: Good Vibrations

Being raised in St. Louis County, I learned to hate Unions before I started my working career. This was not unfounded as I entered the trades they controlled. Their sole purpose was to keep you from advancing your career! But I managed to despite their blocks. I love the Free Enterprise system too! ...

Re: Good Vibrations

I owned a Cadillac for a short time, here too, because they sold me something other than what I had ordered. However, it sure had a lot of amenities in it. Heated seats and steering wheel. A switch on the cup holders allowed you to open or close a vent to direct either the AC or Heat into it. After ...

Re: Good Vibrations

Well, I tried something else. I wadded up a ball of aluminum foil, but folding it first so both the shiny side of one edge, and the dull side of another edge were right next to each other. Flattened the ball with my hand first, then used the eraser end of a pencil to make a dent centered between the...

Re: Good Vibrations

Forgot to mention, we tried four drops of mercury on a freshly drilled divot in a block of aluminum from a storm door. Absolutely nothing happened. Tried cleaning the hole with vinegar which is acetic acid, still nothing. Even tried using a smaller drill bit passing it through the mercury into the c...

Re: Happy Turkey Day!

Be glad you have them. There is nothing down south here that even comes close to comparing to a Dierbergs or Schnucks. Even the Kroger stores down here are nothing like the ones back home either, they are more like an IGA Foodliner, hi hi. We do as much of our shopping as we can at a store named UGO...

Re: Good Vibrations

One of my step-sons designed cars for one of the big three. His main jobs was to scrutinize certain small parts to see if they could be omitted from the vehicle. Which basically meant redesigning a certain area of the car so it was cheaper to build using less parts, and using more automation to buil...

Re: Good Vibrations

There is no added oxygen to scuba tanks, however they must use oil free compressors to fill them or they will be deadly. I think that is what they wanted folks to think, but diluting the exhaust with air, even if it did cause some oxidation, it is still the residual of fossil fuels and hence hydroca...

Re: Good Vibrations

I know first hand, whenever the government gets involved in anti-pollution schemes, they actually create more pollution. I'm sure you remember the late 1960's when they added an air-pump to the cars to blow air into the exhaust. It takes fuel and energy to run that air pump. Back then, they measured...
