Kansas used to be a fairly dry state back in the day. There are only a few dry counties left, mostly on the south western side of the state. Central parts of Kansas has many relatives of Volga German immigrants who migrated there over a hundred years ago. The city of Hays, Kansas almost shuts down d...

We are still going to see anti-Trump posts. . . Lets move on! Yes, indeed . . . let us move on . . . by not starting any more threads about Trump when there already exist so many others! :roll: I agree! Let's move on to talking about ideas instead of people. Here is what I wish to talk about: 1. Pe...

For many, the mystery of what happens at death is enough from them to stay alive. I gave up on fearing my own death many years ago. My lifetime is naturally shorter than most due to genetics (heart/lung issues). It is something I learned to accept when my father passed on nearly two decades ago from...

Having a high I.Q. does not guarantee success in what you do in life. In some ways, it gives quite the opposite results. Potential bosses can avoid hiring you in fear that you might replace them. Those that do hire you will try to take credit for your better ideas. I learned over time to keep them f...

In third grade, my class was tested for intelligence. I was found to be borderline between highly and exceptionally gifted. At the time, my reading comprehension was at a high school graduate level. The school was confused on what to do with me. I got a lot of unwanted attention placed upon me by ot...

Anyone remember the Wacky Racers? I liked professor Pat Pending and his Convert-a-Car. This one was before my day but i have seen reprints: Little Nemo is a fictional character created by American cartoonist Winsor McCay. He originated in an early comic strip by McCay, Dream of the Rarebit Fiend .....

I've collected maybe 25-30 Transformers toys over the past 2 decades. There are people on the Transformers forum who buy that many in 2 months , but I'm pretty damn sure I've got 100 times more joy out of each individual toy than they have. They often go online to whine about the poor quality of a ...

One thing I learned over the years of collecting is to consider your storage space before attempting to collect large things. I used to be quite active in collecting cars. No, not the little models, but the real ones. I literally ran out of space to store them. It started costing me more to pay for ...

Yes, not all special interests involve buying a huge collection of merchandise. I've never been rich, so "hobbies" always had to take second place to the necessaries of ordinary life when it came to budgeting. As such I've always had to pit my wits against the expense of playing and recor...

So...buy this silver, and then pay for it with bitcoin. So when both the silver and the crypto bubbles burst...you will have a lot of worthless silver, but you will have paid for it with then worthless bitcoin. So it will even out! :D I would be happy that they did that. During the rise in silver, ...

Wow, did not expect the first answer to be from someone who actually follows silver. My Mum has a silver tray that requires a lot of polishing. Do you need to maintain your silver stock? Is it a lot of work? I hate MLMs. Yes, silver oxidizes in air over time. How much depends upon what it is expose...

I am a silver buyer/seller, as I have been doing so for over forty years. It might go up in the future, but is just as likely to go down. It greatly depends upon production and demand. Prices can become messed up whenever a large deposit is found or if a major player sells off on the market. This ha...

Yes, I still watch them on occasion when I have time to. Growing up in the late 1970s-1980s, it was common to spend Saturday mornings in front of the t.v. watching them. I have a collection of certain cartoons from that era. Transformers and G.I Joe were my favorites back in the day.

Is our education failing us? The true answer is both a yes and no. You really get out of your education what you put into learning and what you decide to learn. If you consume only junk food for your brain, your brain will become full of junk. Sad to say, I know PhDs in my area of science who are th...

One of my special abilities is making money in stock market A lot of people have that very same ability.  Thus, it is neither special nor unique. I have a special ability to find things lost to time by others. It is if the object calls out to me from the past. I cannot explain how it happens, but i...
