Strange spiral 'cloud'

Posted By Andy Campbell

Pretty weird alright. I don't buy the rocket story. I lived next to the Vandenberg AFB space launch area all my life and saw many strange (and deadly!) clouds form during and after launches and I never saw anything close to the symmetry that this cloud had! Very weird indeed!

I seem to be having trouble answering an ad or two. When I click send, it locks up my computer and I have to close IE.

Anybody else run into this issue?
More than likely it is IE giving you trouble. I would suggest looking into another internet browser. I dropped IE years ago. I use Firefox (because all the add-ons I can't live without now!) but there are others that are good to.

Vintage Lasers

Posted By Andy Campbell

How old would a vintage laser be? I have an 18" Uniphase He-Ne tube that I have had for quite some time and was used when I got it. I wouldn't say it was "vintage". Just old! But I don't know much about lasers either.

NFL Overtime Rule?

Posted By Andy Campbell

Darian Rachal said:

I do not know if this has been discussed on this Forum or not, but I thought I'd bring it up since the Saints were the beneficiary of it against the Vikings.

Of course I'm glad the Saints are going to the Superbowl, but I think the NFL overtime rule is idiotic. :C It seems to me that, at least, both teams should have the opportunity to score.

Anybody else have any thoughts on the matter?
I don't watch much sports and would not miss them if all pro sports disappeared completely. Not even sure why they have overtime! Do they have commercials left they haven't shown? wink
Could someone remind me of why ties are so bad.

New smoker tax

Posted By Andy Campbell

I used to smoke. Quit a long time before the prices went crazy. Now that they are, anyone who continues to smoke is either rich or they must be crazy! grin
I feel sorry for those who have yet to quit because the time has come to "Just do it!"
