One interesting thing thats new in my life...

The other day at work we were digging in a service line, or depth was about 27 feet deep.
All of the sudden we dug up a tree blanch that was in the virgin gray clay.

I knew at the time it had to be old, because the last time this ground saw the sun was during the ice age.

I contacted the local UND university and talked to the head of the geological department.
He told me that the age of the stick I found was in the 8,000 to 18,000 year old range.

I have sent the tree blanch to a guy out East who will dry it out for me, and stabilize it so I can turn it into a knife handle.

I think it would be cool to own a knife with a handle that is older than the Pyramids, and all of recorded human history.

NASA...

I disagree with the current plan of NASA to return to the moon and Mars.

I think that the new smaller thin rocket is real silly looking.

I believe that NASA should go back to the drawing board and try to use the Space shuttle fuel tank and side boosters with an un-manned strap on cargo ship or casement.

NASA Mars mission

I totally disagree with the current plans and means that NASA has to go to Mars.

1st, I dont think we should be even planning a mars mission yet until we master long-term spaceflight on the space station without constant refueling and cargo shipments.

I think a better way to explor Mars would be to send a lot more unmanned missions to really get to know all parts of that world.
I think that the next unmanned mission should be a sample return mission.
I also think in 3 years we should have a balloon in orbit about the surface of mars so that we can get a very sharp bird's eye view of the land.

I have not heard back yet from the guy I sent the wood to , to see if he can dry and stabilize it enough to make a knife handle out of.

If nothing else, I plan to carve it into something for display

I already know what I think...

But dont have a clue what another person thinks.

I cant tell you what you think, but I can talk about what i think and ask for questions about such issues.

I believe that along the way there is a chance to learn a few new things about each other, as well as a chance to have fun fleshing out my views that are not so fleshed out right now.

Being challenged about something I believe is my way of really getting down to the heart of what i believe and why.

many times we tend to believe things, without a really well thought out answer about it.
more a gut feeling than anything else.

But when you ask for questions , you have to find answer, because gut feelings are no longer going to cut it...

Default huh?

You want to know about us? Oh I was under the impression that you wanted everyone else to know about you.

So here is another question.

What would you like to know about others here?
