Posted 5 Dec 2015 by Profile Robert Waite
Dealers never say orange for some reason.
This colour is very close to my old, well, brand new at the time, 1976 Firebird and the colour was Carrousel Red on the paperwork.

Actually, it is very liberating. The moment I realised that I didn't believe in god I felt a huge weight lift off me and realised that I had more control over my life than I realised. There was no 'great plan' and I wasn't being judged by a set of rules that seemed horribly unfair. It was wonderful.

I highly recommend it.


That was my experience too Es99
The sudden sense of freedom and feeling more at one with the universe than any other point in my life.

Well, in language you might prefer, an old poem of mine.

To loose my limitations,
The bonds of mind set free,
To step forth from shadow
and greet God's Galaxy,

To snub the nub of tide in me?
Hell vengeance fire my soul!
I shall! I shall!! I shall!!!
I cry, have nothing more to know.


Have you met Mark?
When he returns from sabbatical, I predict some very interesting discussions.

Sanders is the only candidate speaking for the general population.
Given the opportunity, he would bring in a new beginning for working people in the US.
I hope he wins the Oval Office.

Welcome back!

If you feel your blood pressure going up, step away from the computer!


Sound advice :)

Thanks for the welcoming back everyone.

Posted 9 Oct 2015 by Profile Robert Waite
The number of abuses by police is appalling.
As more people become aware of the abuses via social media, the pressure for accountability will grow.

Cops have been handing out beatings since the beginning of their existence.
With the advent of cameras in cell phones, the ability of citizens to document the abuse is unprecedented.
Cops will be forced to change.

Finally have the new 'puter up and running and I'm slowly getting all my old haunts installed.
Nice to see that nothing has changed around here during the past few months.
That guy is even on a SETI vacation just now so it feels like I'm at home.

My next project is to get my old computer wiped and then get it hooked up to run only BOINC.
That will be it's retirement job.

Anyway, I'm very happy to be online once again and happy to be crunching too.

Posted 1 Mar 2015 by Profile Robert Waite
I suppose the time outs from SETI@Home are wonderful opportunities to perform more searchs on Goodsearch.
Keep up the good work of contributing to the project by finding so many ways of creating free time for yourself to use Goodsearch as much as you do. :)

A couple of guys I worked with at the phone company were hardcore model builders.
Mostly WWII tanks and planes, but they also built a whack of NASA stuff and of course Star Wars and Star Trek.
Many pieces were on display at the Legion and at the library for quite a while.

Thanks for sharing your hobby Bob.
I really like the sailing vessels.

So clearly, this stunt driver thing is just another falsehood passed off as part of the alternative reality you choose to live in.

So many of your posts are like this. They are so filled with distortions and deceptions that you make it impossible to take anything you say seriously.

Well, if the creators of these forums didn't want people posting lies and made up facts, they should have made a rule that says no one can lie or make up facts.

I was sliding sideways at about 50mph throgh the ditch and hit it dead on.
The car had flipped over in a 180 and then abruptly came down of the roof.
You could not have scripted it better. Years later, I learned that you could do this on purpose for a living...LOL.

I drove stunts for many years after that. And not one was as spectacular as thet first event.


msattler wrote the above claim.
That's awesome man!
Can you tell us what movies you are credited in as a stuntman?
Of course, if you didn't do movie work, you must be on YouTube for your stunt driving at county fairs and demolition derbies.
No one can spend years as a stunt driver and have no film.

I don't see Chris S making excuses for msattler.
As a matter of fact, Chris S calls bull$&!T toward msattler on his made up facts quite often.

You forgot to allow funding for the legal fees you'll run up by offering music online that you don't own the rights to.

Well, actually quite hard to imagine that first cop action even if he would think that the child holds real gun will be to shoot into the child... Really hard...

Been there - 10 Year old - Real Gun.

Decided not to shoot, and place MY LIFE at greater risk.

Ethical Decision. Not Legal Decision.

Question: Would my decision have been different if he was 14 - 16 - 18 - 25 years old?

Would YOUR decision be different?

What is the 'Cut off' age, if any?


You seem to have a been there done that story for every situation.

The right wing lunatic fringe always seems to get much more active in the few years leading up to a US presidential election.
The past few years have been rather quiet in here but the righties are trending upward in their attacks and criticisms.
Looking forward to a spirited few years leading up to the election.
Nice to know some of the unemployed right wing whackos are finding work in a republican run cubicle maze filled with computers, reference books, talking points and suggested items to discuss online.
