Where to see the American Eclipse

(click to show/hide)
My wife's uncle is renting a cabin in the zone, we plan on spending the weekend with them for it.

We just booked our VRBO.

Every movement that has rejected a scientific consensus, whether it be on evolution, climate change or the link between smoking and cancer, exhibits the same five characteristics of science denial (concisely summarized by the acronym FLICC). These are fake experts, logical fallacies, impossible expectations, cherry picking and conspiracy theories. When someone wants to cast doubt on a scientific finding, FLICC is an integral part of the misinformation toolbox.

Not all that sciency, but this panel runs a fist sized pump that pumps (in good sun) 20L/min 400m horizontally and 12m vertically.  A mains powered sutup was going to cost $11,000 and about $50/mo... this was $1,000 and $0/month.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

It's suspected that the President watches Infowars and talks to Alex Jones.

This is Alex Jones.

That's...not how the uncertainty principle works
The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better...is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

Yeah, it properly reads "Am I going to get laid tonight?"

...and the answers "Yes I am going to get laid tonight" and "No, I won't get laid tonight" are both true.
