    Default Word Recognition

    Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people who continue to hang on to their belief there is no such thing as a warming climate and which also blocks bright ideas from penetrating their tiny little closed down minds. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

    So are you saying that stupid people emit Bozone, or that being surrounded by Bozone makes people stupid? Or is it, stupid people and Bozone are attracted to the other?

    I think it's that not-stupid people emit Frezone and Frezone burns holes through Bozone, thereby allowing smartness in and out - smartness is a two way street, smarts coming in and going out, both at the same time, yet the smartness builds up to replace the Frezone emitted. People with a lot of smartness emit a lot of Frezone, reducing the Bozone layer around them much faster. Therefore it is presumed, but not yet scientifically proven, that there is a relationship between smartness and Frezone. It has been postulated that smartness contains Frezone, thus the more smartness one has, the more Frezone emitted. The APE considered banning Frezone and replacing it with Purzone, but that never went anywhere because the APE committee did not collectively emit sufficient amounts of Frezone.

    Well now, if smart people emit Frezone, where do they emit it from? If it's from their "back side", would that make them a "smart XXX"?

    "Frezone burns holes "
    I know when I emit Frezon, it sure does burned holes.

    No doubt, the world is warming up.... but, 30 years ago we were afraid we were going to freeze to death. There's a TIME magazine article that Dennis Miller brought onto The Tonight Show that talks about ways we should work on warming the polar ice caps because scientists were afraid we were headed into another ice age. The article was in the 1970's

    Now? We're all going to burn up? I'm not saying it's not true... But, I'm not ready to start speaking it as my religion like many people.

    It's funny how the right and left have their different paranoias - The right thinks extriemest muslims are going to overtake the country (after the left overturns the 2nd ammendment and takes all their guns, of course) and the left thinks we're all going to burn up (after the right leaves their gas guzzling SUVs idling in their driveways all night).

    In reality, nobody knows.... people claim to think they do because they saw it on the news.... If the left stopped watching NPR and the right stopped watching FOX news they might both learn something.

    What I do know is that I live in a low lying valley that rarely sees snow and I had 12" on my driveway for several weeks in December..... So, if I'm burning up it seems to be going rather slowly.

    Well I had no idea thats what we were talking about thanks Billy.

    Lets call it the Ronzone

    Do you think we should TAX something then? and put the money in a lock box LOCK BOX.... So we could fix this problem?

    When did this happen?

    When I was going to the beach in my 52 chev... Beach blvd. hey some chicks hitch hiking stop the car dude.

    Cruising for chicks on whittier blvd on a Friday night in 1972. just when did I caused this ?

    When I was riding my Harley across the sierra's ? That was the mother of all rides 1,100 milles on the HOG.

    Do you think the cows in the valley had anything to do with it P...U...

    Maybe I did when I was BBQ Some tri-tip... Every weekend.
    The grand kids are coming over better put on a few hot dogs for jake & josh.

    Maybe I did it when I was mowing the grass with the rider.
    Never did like them push mowers.

    I had better stop doing all this stuff before I kill us all...

    I do miss that 52 Chev 210 post... my first car at 13 years

    I am glad that algore has a jumbo-jet to get around in so he can sound the warning about me doing all this stuff...

    Some one has to stop me!!! Im going to kill us all...

    It got "Up" into the 50's here yesterday so I decided to squeeze in a ride at the end of the day. I pulled over to return a phone call & ended up answering some questions & booking an inspection, all the while forgetting I had left the ignition on, an Ultra Classic will drain the battery pretty quick & when I went to leave, click click click. Oh well, pulled the seat, got a jump, & all's well that end's well & any time you can end the day with a ride is a good day!

    Billy,

    Nope, not explaining the Bozone theory, but explaining why some try to exaggerate what they read to back up their beliefs, however wrong their beliefs are.

    From your linked article". (underlining is mine)

    "Heat from a volcano could still be melting ice and contributing to
    the thinning and speeding up of the Pine Island Glacier, which passes
    nearby, but Dr. Vaughan doubted that it could be affecting other
    glaciers in West Antarctica, which have also thinned in recent years.
    Most glaciologists, including Dr. Vaughan, say that warmer ocean
    water is the primary cause."

    I.e., one volcano does not an effective global warming device make.

    Beats me, just like I don't know why you linked to it in the first place, when it says "but Dr. Vaughan doubted that it could be affecting other glaciers in West Antarctica, which have also thinned in recent years.

    Now J.P.
    We are talking about " Theories " not proven Facts. ( idea, ponderous, notion, )

    As the Pacific Volcanic Rim is shown extending into that area (at least half a dozen known land Volcanoes in Antarctica) a recently discovered underwater Volcano, this appears to a rather active Volcanic Region. Why would this not be pertinent to a decrease in ice volume ?

    Aaron,

    Nope.

    Those who believe in "a god" are likely to believe in a "higher power", which can be anything from the paranormal to ... whatever.

    Those who believe in what they call "God" only believe in the one god they call God. They are the true non-believers as they only believe in one god, not all gods.

    But we've had this discussion before.

    I believe it was Ted who pointed out that there are thousands of religions, and those who believe in only one god are 99.9% atheist, or only 0.1% religious.

    Oh, I see . . like AA members, X Files fanatics, spoon benders, that sort of folks?

    Those who believe in what they call "God" only believe in the one god they call God. They are the true non-believers as they only believe in one god, not all gods.
    Maybe. Take a look in the major writings of the religions of the world. Start with the obvious, close to home, happy-clappy churchianity "Book". It talks about God (well maybe Gods, or a three-in-one kinda God tripod) and then lots of other little gods that God considered just schmucks or wannabees. You know, encroaching on his territory kinda gods.

    The point is that they believe in ALL of these Gods and gods. They don't want to admit they believe in all of them, but why then do they write and talk about them all? Even God himself went to a lot of trouble and took up a lot of pages in the "Book" holding forth about this god and that one. And if God wrote it, it must by God be the truth, right? "Thou shalt have no other gods before me!" Which gods, if you're the only one? What about after you? Can we have them then? Why not?
    W-a-a-a-a W-a-a-a-a W-a-a-a-a

    But we've had this discussion before.
    Surely have, but I like this one nearly the best of all . . .

    I believe it was Ted who pointed out that there are thousands of religions, and those who believe in only one god are 99.9% atheist, or only 0.1% religious.
    Take a hit and pass that this way, Ted.

    And, he said that it's valuable too, "Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it."

    The truth is . . . I agree.

    Ron,

    You should have thought about this deal first.

    I put in for $250 billion and told them I would buy $249 BILLION in bad mortgages that I would then turn over to the banks, making the bad mortgages paid off, turning the worthless paper into real money.

    That gets $250 billion off the books, buys us out of the housing crisis, lets people keep their homes, and, most importantly, gives the banks real money to lend to make good loan with.

    Nothing but win-win-win in there.

    You know you live in california if you think 50 degrees is cold. We have hit zero degrees already a couple times this winter. When it warmed up to the 20's a few days later, it actually felt comfortable outside. Cold is relative I guess!

    And you are saying that the definitions below are only for Republicans and not Democrats. Mind you, I am neither. That is like saying all Mexicans or blacks or chinese or Germans are bad. Can't put them all in one group just like you can't just put that definition all on one group.

    • an envious eagerness to possess something
    • avarice: extreme greed for material wealth
    • avarice: reprehensible acquisitiveness; insatiable desire for wealth (personified as one of the deadly sins)
      wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
    • Greed is the selfish desire for or pursuit of money, wealth, power, food, or other possessions, especially when this denies the same goods to others. It is generally considered a vice, and is one of the seven deadly sins in Catholicism.

    • Strong desire for the possession of something, especially for wealth; Great greed
      en.wiktionary.org/wiki/covetousness
    • covetous - showing extreme cupidity; painfully desirous of another's advantages; "he was never covetous before he met her"; "jealous of his success and covetous of his possessions"; "envious of their art collection"
    • covetous - avaricious: immoderately desirous of acquiring e.g. wealth; "they are avaricious and will do anything for money"; "casting covetous eyes on his neighbor's fields"; "a grasping old miser"; "grasping commercialism"; "greedy for money and power"; "grew richer and greedier"; "prehensile employers ...

    Didn't I say I would enjoy that 20 room mansion? Thought that's what I said (see quote below).

    Do I "covet" having one? Nope. Would I enjoy it if I could afford one? You betcha.

    Then I'd also have a 100 car garage and acquire some more Jaguars too.

    Let's see ... 20 room mansion ...

    ... or current house and 100 car garage with Jaguars in each bay ...

    ... ummm ... let's toss a coin ...

    NOPE. No need to toss a coin, you can keep your 20 room mansion, I'll keep the stable of Jaguars.
