RE: Our planet is getting too crowded......

Finally......someone has addressed population increase. Yes, nature could thin the herd via disease but it would be only a temporary solution.

Our planet is getting too crowded......

Population now is 8,000 million (aka 8 billion). If I was able to start from scratch and place one million persons (with all their houses, cars, RV, etc) in a the rate of one million per would take me more than 2 hours. 8,000 seconds = 133 minutes. Try counting to 8,000... and picturing the above. Are you worried ?

A case for electronic balls and strikes.....

During current WS...catcher scoots over a bit to outside edge of plate and places his glove there. Pitch lands at the opposite side of the plate in catcher's glove, but ABSOLUTELY IN THE STRIKE ZONE. Ump calls it a ball. Smoltz says umps do not call this a strike...just because. I watched a lot of SF Giants this season and saw this same scenario many times over the season. We all know umps have their own personal version of what is the strike zone....over and above the rule addition to my first sentence. So what is the big deal....why am I posting this. Remember the old science fiction book or movie where they go back in time and some dope smashes a butterfly....and somehow it affects everything going forward. A missed called strike can change the outcome of an inning or the game later on.

RE: Hiring Bernie Madoff as a trust company??

How about appointing a co-trustee. Nothing can be done unless both agree how to do things. Ask your trust attorney about this. (You do see a live trust or elder attorney....don't you) ?

Giants/Dodgers called swinging strike...end of game

So Flores swing did not appear to me to be much of an attempt. I looked in the MLB rule book and did not find anything to define a swinging strike. What is the rule....if any. Just the ump's judgement ? TIA

Rational Thinking

Not sure this goes in humor or elsewhere, but here goes: "Tell people there is an invisible person in the sky who created the universe and the vast majority will believe you. Tell them the paint is wet.....and they have to touch it, to be sure" G. Carlin

RE: Erratic fuel gauge

Thanks....had not thought of that. I am an automotive/handyman DUNCE. Guess a rubber mallet and not a regular hammer ? TIA

Erratic fuel gauge

Not working well. Noticed after a right-to-the-top fill up last week. Gauge reads full while traveling 200-300 miles. At rest it drops to 3/4 full. This is a 2003 National Dolphin LX6355, W22, 8.1L engine. Not an Actia dash, don't know the mfr. Is there a way to diagnose with a code reader and possibly fix without going into the fuel tank and replacing the sender/float ? Thanks for listening

RE: One more baseball question.....

OK,OK.....I realize this was pie-in-the-sky. But no comments at all ? So fan seating will be odd in the outfield...but 3 huge TV screens will fix that. Outfielders play in close..trouble. They play back..trouble. MLB rules will soon eliminate infielders from playing on outfield grass, so no 4 outfielders. Oh, I forgot about owners giving up 100,000 square feet of space for concessions and parking. This might be the death knell....
