  1. HTH, are you "estimating" that over 60,000 people died from covid in New York yesterday ????? As of yesterday New York has had a little over 10,000 total deaths related to Corona Virus!
  2. LukeJ. Thank you for the well thought out response. The only correction I would make is that the 40k-60k deaths you reference are in the U.S. alone. It's amazing what people will accept as "normal" just because they have become used to it. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2018-2019.html
  3. Thank you Morlock. I picked the wrong column. 2340 is the total cases in the US. I corrected the post.
  4. You have to love it! Watching Good Morning America this morning (Saturday) and noticed that an item on the crawler (the line of print on the bottom of the screen) mentioned that flu deaths have reached 22,000 this year so far. Odd how you seldom hear panic about the flu when you realize that the last 2 seasons of influenza EACH killed over 60,000 people. Have you had your flu shot this year? The latest figure I could find this morning for corona virus cases in the US so far is 2340.
  5. Thank you for doing this. You can all put it away, the answer is $37.47. Roger
  6. If the dark areas are metallic be very cautious in an aquarium. Roger
  7. I guess I'm a little late posting to this thread to talk about "Earth wobble." A number of years ago I ran into a novel by Allan W. Eckert titled "The HAB Theory". I thoroughly enjoyed it and remember that I was quite impressed with the accuracy of the science. I thought you might enjoy some "different" reading if you can locate a copy. Roger P.
  8. Looks like $16.72 to me. Thanks for the fun. Roger
  9. Sorry Mike, here are two of several reports on the subject. I realize that some of the information referring to lower temp ignition of wood has to do with long exposure. Obviously that does not apply to the original post, but this does cast doubt on your temp claims. engineeringtoolbox.com/fuels-ignition-temperatures-d_171.html Please note information regarding; Oakwood dry, paper, pinewood dry, and wood. doctorfire.com/low_temp_wood1.pdf Roger P.
  10. Thanks Ben, I hate to admit it but that actually made sense to me. I appreciate the responses and now I have to figure out where to go here in the Colordo Springs area Roger
  11. Thanks y'all, This is pretty much what I figured but it still seems odd. Oh well, that's what they call me sometimes (odd that is) Thanks again Roger
  12. Hi Folks, I have been a "lurker" on this board for quite a long time and I am finally getting a small start on a collection. I started checking out some of the listings on EBay.and I am confused about prices. I have read over and over how rare meteorites are yet there are some really interesting looking meteorites at some (in my opinion) quite low prices. Granted, a lot of them are pretty small, but I am confused about how a reasonable price is determined. It seems to me that if something is "rarer than diamonds" that the price would be pretty high. I have made a point of watching what I feel
  13. This is not "eco-correct" but pick up a can of wasp and hornet spray. It will give amazing results. Roger
  14. Boy, I hate to admit it but I am at the stage that I keep a backup set of keys in my pocket. My "main" set is attached to a steel rod, so I lose it rarely, but...... Roger
  15. Hi Bill, As a recent "joinee" I want to say thanks to you for what you do for this forum. I can only imagine how much time you spent getting rid of the problems and still keeping track of what is going on. I have been away from detectors for a while but am about to get "hooked again. Thanks again, Roger
