Mommsen --no unless it's Momma, Wilhelmus, listed 1702 Lea--no Prescott --no Haeckel, Humboldt--no. I have some offical RC material on the history of their book censorship, beginning with the council of Nicaea. My earlier statement about the List, referred to the beginning of an institutionalized procedure centered in Rome, 1753. There are censorial decrees going back to 1515, and in 1564 the ten Tridentine rules (for censorship/list inclusion) were proclaimed. Interested? BTW, is it my board, or my hub--there

Damn. You're absolutrely correct. That would parse more lyrically. Want a job as an aesthetics editor?

What? Fred? Go to those nasty *pigs* for assistance? <snirk> Seriously, you should have IMMEDIATELY sworn a complaint against these two subneanderthals; and sued the living shit out of them (yeah, but what are you going to do with a delapidated doublewide and a dented beer can collection?) and the "institution" where they worked. I'd wager you could find some shyster, ack, to take the case on a pro bono basis; just for the publicity (make it loud, and

Actually, you're close. But. it's aqueous chemistry is a bit more complex. Yep. That's the feedstock for most electrolytic chlorinators. Ah, but there's the rub. NaOH is hydrophilic, and a swimming pool is just full of dihydrogen monoxide. With that, you'd end up with Na3O(OH).nH20; which is hydrous sodium oxyhydroxide; or, to be painfully proper (IIRC), it's actually hydrous sodium superoxyhydroxide (I may be incorrect on the latter terminology, it's been a while since inorganic chemistry...) Bingo. Give the man

Now there's an understatement. I carry a triage kit with anti-venin for various species (which always struck me as kind of weird; I mean, you get hit and before you can inject yourself, you have to do a Marlin Perkins number on the perpetrator...), with epinipherin, a rudimentary trach kit (we all have to have SERIOUS first aid and CPR training before we're loosed on the world), as well as salt tablets (on the sabkha...go figure...), and a variety of

Re: Done Like a Dinner!
As usual, you confuse science with your superstition. IS it because that's all you can comprehend? Total lie and you know it. Keep pretending that scientific models don't improve though rigorous reexamination. It shows how truely sick you are. You are not qualified or even able to distinquish scientific reasoning from nonscientific, as you have shown over and over again. does more for science than his limited, superstitous mind can know.

Re: God Fearin' Parents
I'm afraid my kid has already beaten me to this one. Often when throwing a tantrum she will call out repeatedly, "I want my Daddy/Mommy." That's a heart breaker for sure. Also I want to say that Sara is a really great kid who trys very hard to be good, but like all of us she fails to think sometimes. I wouldn't want the folks here to think I have constantly bad child, just a very willful one who sometimes

I'd most likely end up as an aesthetics-offending editor. I just got a new 3d creation program. Called Poser 3. One and 2 weren't much but they allowed you to get 3 dimensional human figures into your scenes. This one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one is anatomically correct (although the males look definitely castrati...well-endowed but still castrati) with all parts posable and scalable. <G> I'm considering a 3d rendering of the Kama Sutra. If you don't see me for a year or 6,

Well, howdy, campers. It's getting close to the witching hour and yours truly is preparing to set sail on BA's finest 747-400 and head west for a well deserved vacation ("Why, yes. I'd most certainly like another vodka and bitter lemon".) The ports of call include Chicago, Milwaukee, Keystone, South Dakota, Plano, Houston and points intertwixt (although not necessarily in that order). I am tentatively planning on attending the HolySmoke campout for at least an overnighter, but my plans (as

SC. Up 17a almost to Huger. They had a big stink a while back when a resident had a fire and no subscription. The fire department came out and hosed down the houses on either side (people who had paid) but wouldn't do a thing about the actual fire. They were supported in court. This system lets you know exactly what you are paying. Only exemption there is the school. Even churches have to pay the subscription ain't a
