Wow, that was the thread!!! It's a strong possibility! This week I've deleted all online dating, am taking a break here, and am thinking about getting rid of Amazon and many other online accounts. It's winter cleaning, I guess.

Okay, this one made me laugh. It's been a while since we've made stickers...

What about water availability? That seems like something that's going to be a huge deal moving forward. Especially the Rockies and West in America, and obviously every place near the equator worldwide. How do manage 5 year droughts, how do we collect water during storms and safely store it in aquafors.

    At this point climate change has happened we need to work on dealing with the consequences and effects as they happen and affect our citizens.

What does that look like to you?

Can you clarify what you did say, then? If I am not intelligent enough in my reading comprehension I would appreciate help in developing an understanding of your point(s). I want to ask you point blank: Do you believe in human driven climate change?

Edit: Also, you do realize that that was a very demeaning way of engaging?

    Change is its natural state.

    The human effect on climate is one aspect of change.

Change is its natural state until you look at CO2 emissions, global temperature rises, forest fire incidences, glacial levels, etc. etc. from the industrial era on. It's an extremely significant and extremely unnatural effect we have had on our climate. How can you possibly say otherwise, or have such a defeatist attitude? Mapping Yellowstone? Fuck off, dude. Any learnings or mapping will happen concurrently with other changes around the world and it will be too late to do much about it at that point.

We are already experiencing it. Go step on a glacier anywhere in Washington.

Do you have a heart rate monitor? Thinking it's about time I bought one.

Yes, it is. Here's a lot more information.

    “The correlation between unemployment and suicide has been observed since the 19th century. People looking for work are about twice as likely to end their lives as those who have jobs.”

Happy to hear I'm on a very similar schedule to the author of this article.

    When I don’t have a marathon on the horizon, I’ll end up covering 30 to 40 miles a week. In the three months leading up to a marathon, I’ll do 20-mile runs on the weekend and speed up some of my commutes. Those weeks, I run closer to 50 or 60 miles.

Following a program is essential if you're serious about running a "good" (whatever that means to you, or Boston in some cases...) time. People like Jack Daniels, the physiologists in this article, and elsewhere praise VO2 max estimates or actual studies, and looping in interval and other types of training into your schedule. Running fast is a delicate balance.

Are there other agencies capable of doing what NASA does? Moving a project schedule up four years is incredible to me.

Depends on how big the gun was...or, you know, just generally absolutely insane.

Did you have an indication this guy was into guns from his Bumble profile?

Hah, I'm on the other side of that circle. Spent enough time trying this year and gave a much greater understanding of my wants and needs...which is a lot longer conversation but boils down to "no dating unless I meet a mountaineer or trail runner who's my age bracket and single."
