Here's some "science!"

"I don't want get into the debate about climate change, but I simply want to point out that I think we in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars. There’s no factories on Mars that I'm aware of."
State Sen. Brandon Smith said, according to Louisville NPR affiliate WFPL.

The honorable Mr. Smith is wrong, wrong and wrong.

I suppose we all have a right to complain when someone in authority, who holds the same beliefs as is made to look ridiculous. But complaining about "warmers" doesn't change the fact that the daily average temperature on Mars between -103° and 16°F.

In this particular case it's up to Senator Smith to either say, "I was mistaken and will do more research on the matter."

Or he can complain about people making fun of him.

I consider 1 of those 2 the as a mature response.

He just wants to keep a profit. He doesn't care so he doesn't research. As long as he wins the fight in the halls and tables and rooms for his company, he doesn't give a damn. He's not in Venice where the water rises, he's not looking at any sites, he's not thinking logically.

"Very cool. Outside of Hawaii, it's hard to find legit Hawaiian / Polynesian martial arts schools. Up here (Canada), the closest we'll get is Kajukenbo and even those schools are few and far between. "

Any advice for selling a collection?

I accrued a collection of Star Wars memorabilia and knick knacks during my childhood and teenage years. It's not really cataloged, and is only taking up space in boxes in a garage right now. I'm considering selling it but have never sold anything sizable like this before (probably in the neighborhood of 350 various pieces – action figures to art prints).Anyone sold a collection before that can offer some advice? Should I try to sell it all at once, and if that's the case would I take it to an…See More
