I suspect that if someone can come up with a way to make desert sand grains more jagged so that they bind more effectively, they'll have a winner.

Hmm...I don't recall that one, Ian. A trailer park for office buildings? Not on the west side, certainly, though I'm less familiar with the east side.

The thing that bothers me, TD, is that these are mostly folks in their 60s and 70s who purchased low-cost housing and had them moved into the parks with every expectation of living there until they were carried out feet-first. Today, most of those trailers and manufactured homes can't be relocated due to the age, and so they have to abandon them. The state will give them some $1200 to assist in relocating, but that's about it. Their homes will be demolished for condos, and their golden years disrupted. It just doesn't seem right.

You might want to consider a new job-site....

The level of hypocrisy should be amazing, but most people just seem to ignore it. Dems excel at rewriting their own history; the KKK is all RepubliKKKans, even though Democratics founded it - but the Democratics magically became Republicans throughout the South. They're insane. Even Barry figured that they can't close Gitmo, because none of the countries agree to repatriation. They don't want them back.
True, and they don't even need a reason.

Looks like she escaped from somewhere (just not the bar).

Don't know. Would it be surprising?

It's hard to keep track of them all any more, James, but yes - about 15 years ago.

In brief, they decline to be participants or contributors. Therefore, they are targeted.

Never had an issue there, myself.

It'd sure keep things a lot calmer.

I think he's too nuts to know.
I've long been an advocate of glassing much of the middle east; it's just not a politically-correct view, but it'd solve a lot of problems. And, as you note, it'd provide more building materials!

I just use a rare-earth magnet on hard drives. Nothing survives that. I also don't store anything of import in "the cloud".
Nice link; thanks!

Absolutely, ZZ - but that also means that elucidation of compounds in venom could be printed (once structure is analyzed) fairly inexpensively.

Amoxicillin can be an effective antimicrobial for some bacteria, but not for others. It also tends not to kill cats, unlike some of the other agents. For TB, Iso is the front-line antagonist, but it has some major side-effects. Felids are actually more potent zoonotic vectors when it comes to transmission to humans; megaherbivores tend the opposite.

I'm afraid that a bit more firepower would be required, but it does seem to be heading in that general direction.

Thus, my final line. They are selectively choosing to be "offended". And litigating.

Well, with Mann-made global warming and all, a market could develop.
