  1. Friday Dancing GIF by Robert E Blackmon

    Check out the animated gifs on offer. Thinking of Adam's often hilarious gif rejoinders ...

      I blew the video up and now I can see she is on skates. Skate boards, skis, and skates are now beyond my abilities, I think.

  2. I tried a test donation just now and it seemed to be going well and it was loading my info as I clicked on each window box. For example it would give me the last four digits of my credit card and if I clicked on it then the whole number was uploaded. But suddenly as I was nearing the end of the process, it started back at the beginning with the amount screen except it now had a comma instead of a decimal point where the amount goes. Peter

      I tiredly tried again and it flipped back to the screen with Moldova as my country but I plowed on and suddenly the amount with a comma switched over to an amount with a decimal point. I deliberated did not prefill the info boxes though hints were offered and my donation went through. Peter

      And the new screen has the country of Moldova as my place of residence. Weird. I just tried it again. Maybe I will try it without letting the system prefill my info. Peter

      Symphony of Science by Carl Sagan.
      As the ancient mythmakers knew
      We're children equally of the earth and the sky
      In our tenure on this planet, we've accumulated
      Dangerous evolutionary baggage

      We've also acquired compassion for others,
      Love for our children,
      And a great soaring passionate intelligence
      The clear tools for our continued survival

      We've begun at last
      To wonder about our origins
      Star stuff contemplating the stars
      Tracing that long path

      Our obligation to survive and flourish
      Is owed not just to ourselves
      But also to that cosmos
      Ancient and vast, from which we spring.

      Did they steal our Coke recipe?

  7. This is weird and wonderful. "A robot inspired by vines can grow 25,000 times its original size." Seeing this brief year-old video made me think of fracking  -- a quasi-organic proboscis sniffing out lucre.

      What was its energy source? In Scifi lit they have had apparatuses that could build housing units like that, on other planets.

      Kooky scam artist. A little funny. Would you trust her to watch your pet when you were on vacation?

  9. When I want to follow a topic I click “A notification when new content is posted.” That is not happening today. I am getting nothing from OL.

    And I never received your private email to me. I went to OL and logged on and then it said I had a notification from you and did I want to read it. But usually it would have gone to my inbox. I am getting other email from other sites including junk email so it is not something on my end that has changed.

      I should have gotten dozens of emails but none arrived to my inbox as of 1:47 on Sunday afternoon. I did receive your thank you saying I rock!

      OK. For instance I just checked my email and I have no problems. Yet I have received no new email from OL other than one from you. AND I did not receive your most recent message in my inbox. I am reading it onsite. There were a bunch of messages on the Aesthetics thread and I got none of them.

  11. I did receive notification that I had contributed yesterday, but you usually also send a thank you but this time I received nothing from you. Did you get the contribution?

      I received your email about the donation in my inbox. But Michael I have received no new emails from OL since Wed. or Thurs. Yet when I go to OL, log on and browse unread content there are messages that should have been sent to my inbox. Please fix this. I will be on screen for a while so please respond.
