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! :)

"New" kind of sky light phenomenon studied. It's named Steve.

Aurora photographers find new night sky lights and call them Steve

Testing showed it appeared to be a hot stream of fast-flowing gas in the higher reaches of the atmosphere. The European Space Agency (ESA) sent electric field instruments to measure it 300km (190 miles) above the surface of the Earth and found the temperature of the air was 3,000C (5,432F) hotter inside the gas stream than outside it. Inside, the 25km-wide ribbon of gas was flowing at 6 km/s (13,000mph), 600 times faster than the air on either side. Relatively little else is known about the big purple light as yet but it appears it is not an aurora as it does not stem from the interaction of solar particles with the Earth's magnetic field.

Thanks Joan. My time on the computer is limited, and my laptop died so I am busy re-acquiring the contents from the web.

Sean, I haven't seen a comment from you in a long time. Hope all is well with you. 

Your summary of crooks in the White House is timely. "They (POTUS) can be criminals."

I am following the Oroville dam collapse through reports from an airline pilot/observer of the threats to northern California because of unusually heavy snowfall in Nevada County and Oroville Dam water collection system. Many tense moments, captured on video and reported daily, revealed flaws in the dam design, the weaknesses of the underlying bedrock, and the eventual collapse of the emergency spillway. The engineers work on a new concept based on a better understanding of rock and soil conditions underlying the structure. The entire series offers interesting details. 

Oroville Spillway Failure Series Feb 2017, blancolirio, 131 videos.

Today's video provides a release of tensions and some much-needed relaxation. 

Oroville 9 April High Country Snowpack Update

Whether they be damn fools or criminals even the script writers in our country are getting the idea. Supergirl got fired as a reporter in the latest episode and her boss claimed every media action had to be precise because the wrong signal could cause chaos. He tells her "you don't understand, we have fascists in the White House."

The remark made me think the resistance is working in real time.

@Tom - well, you're proven right. They're repealing the fuck out of them as we type.

A Long Island political leader was indicted for involvement in a grand theft auto ring a couple of decades ago.

President Nixon arranged illegal wiretapping of the Democratic Party's campaign plans while there was a convention at the Watergate Hotel.

President Reagan had Oliver North oversee a program to sell drugs in order to raise money that congress had no oversight over with which to purchase huge gun shipments and give them to anti-communist terrorists to overthrow the government of Nicaragua at the time.

Before that, presidential candidate Reagan also negotiated with Iranian terrorists for the release of the hostages they had held for a rather long time in return for a great deal of money, as long as they were not released until after president Carter lost the election.

They can be criminals.

If any laws prohibit what people in the government want to do, they are damn fools if they don't repeal those laws.

They can be damn fools but how can they be criminals?
