I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Yellowstone's vents, geysers, hot springs, and popping mud pots are interesting.  

The last time I visited Yellowstone was before I knew it was a supervolcano, but that won't stop me from visiting it again.

But if that sucker blows again, we're all in for trouble.

yellowstone national park -- 9/12/14

""Yellowstone, it turns out, is a supervolcano. It sits on top of an enormous hot spot, a reservoir of molten rock that rises from at least 125 miles down in the Earth. The heat from the hot spot is what powers all of Yellowstone's vents, geysers, hot springs, and popping mud pots. ..."

Couldn't find the frequency on my microwave oven, but I did find the air inlet clogged with dust!  Cleaning that should improve the oven's efficiency and extend it's life.

Tom, your statement, "pond scum descendant gave us chocolate" is a keeper! 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 11, 2014 at 7:52pm

Grinning Cat, fascinating! Who would have thought we could figure that out and the results that occurred.

Love the video, GC!  Very clever!

Comment by tom sarbeck on September 11, 2014 at 2:03pm

Yeah, GC. An xian once challenged me to name a benefit of evolution.

To make sure he wouldn't give me a "Yes, but evolution also...." response, I told him a pond scum descendant gave us chocolate.

Science and chocolate: always a good combination!

It was science that turned me away from superstition (religion). Thumbs up.

(I volunteer at a children’s museum in their dinosaur area, where I work in the lab. We work behind a glass window that we keep open so the kids can ask us questions about the bones we are cleaning.)

Every Kid: *completely ignoring me* “Wow! A real dinosaur bone!”

One Awesome Kid: *staring directly at me* “Wow! A real scientist!”
