    It's not the heat... it's the humidity that's killer.

    Very true! Locks only keep honest people out.

    Space History near you!

    I find that an interesting statement, and inaccurate. Embry-Riddle graduated 7 astronauts just this past year, my cousin's son attends there - aspiring. The US Naval Academy, actually, takes the lead in 'Astronaut' graduates, followed second by the US Air-Force Academy. Edit: Found the link... https://www.eab.com/daily-briefing/2016/07/27/the-colleges-with-the-most-astronaut-alumni

    Considering I gained this moniker somewhere around 1986, having owned 8 of them, I'd say that's pretty accurate. I'm also pretty sure I'm the original... all others came after me.

    Everyone in my household is sick, Ferret included. Flu bug or something. What a wonderful day we're having.

    Interesting... I remember the Relics album having this as its cover -

    Some people have a little bit of a whistle (or wheezing) when they snore... maybe you're snoring and that's getting the dog's attention?

    Weather Chat Megathread

    @razark That was a bit before my time, but I do remember being told the tale by my dad and uncle (both of them, Navy).

    Weather Chat Megathread

    Please, don't hype and sensationalize this any more than the news... typically, they're doing a fine job of it as it is. Yes, it's a hurricane, and they're bad news period. This isn't Florida's first, nor will it be the last... and as always, people will rebuild. Sit back for a moment and imagine what it was like before we had all of these fancy hi-tech warnings and science and data. You guys don't know what you're missing out on.

    It's a phone company thing... 'Registered Jack'. As a young man in my early 20's, I worked for Bell Telephone (now known as Verizon); It was common terminology back then.

    Explaining an RJ-11 jack to a Verizon store employee, and why I have need for one. "A what?"

    Heh heh heh... how about the Space Farms Zoo and Museum in NJ? It was founded (1927) even before there was a NASA. Does that count? https://www.spacefarms.com/visit Then again, we've got the Joint Base Maguire-Dix-Lakehurst... home of the Hindenburg crash. Also, the American Rocket Society fired its first rocket near Stockton NJ in 1932.

    So what song is stuck in your head today?

    I can't think of Floyd without See Emily Play running through my head... at least. Album-wise, I have everything they've ever put out, big fan long before Dark Side. Same with Yes. Speaking of Yes..... Patrick Moraz
