  1. The posts are Interesting, in a cautionary sense. Unfortunately, not everyone believes in the above.
  2. Not withstanding the negativism and redirection away from the central issue under discussion, I think it's a fair question to pursue in order to resolve the inconsistency. Maybe there is more information to be gleaned by further inquiry.
  3. "well, it has certainly been found naturally" There seems to be some conflicting information which begs the question Mr. Bassebus, in that you said you knew Nada about the item, yet you insist that it was found naturally. So I'm wondering how you know for a fact that it was found naturally? Is there a source that verified the origin?
  4. Kind of resembles a compacted core sample of some type . . .
  5. Well said. And to avoid the fate of Phaedrus in the novel by Robert Pirsig, you can't let the lack of quality, (trash), drive you insane. By learning patience while detecting endless amounts of trash and still having fun doing it, is in its self a quality experience.
  6. 6000 Technology = Greater Sensitivity. 6000 +Solar energy = ( EMI sq.)
  7. My original thoughts were in favor of allowing a discussion of politics to be confined to a separate section. I thought maybe the contestants could fight among themselves and not intrude on the topics and interests of other members. The consensus seems to be that it wouldn't work, and that the animosities and disagreements would spill over into other topics, like it is doing now. So for the record, put me down as a no, although at this point I'm not sure it would make much difference one way or another.
  8. Relax, Bobby. If I was going to dime on you, I would have done so when you posted the photo. New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Regulation. Bow fishing is a legal means of take for game fish species in lakes. It is not a legal means of take in a river. "Bow fishing and spearfishing for game fish are not allowed in any river or stream" ing-Rules-and-Info.pdf /52
  9. Ditch Pickle? Could be. No whining, or accusing, (and it's certainly a nice fish), But! Does the river in the original published photo look like a lake where bow fishing is legal? (In NM it's legal to bow fish in a lake but not legal in a river where the water tends to be shallow and the fish are sitting ducks)
  10. Hi Bear, Although I don't keep track of all the upgrades in comparable models of detectors since I sold my SD2200d almost 20 years ago, there are times that I wish I still had it. Most nugget hunters swear by the upgrades that you mentioned and I like the GPX5000 that I use now, but if you can get a newer model and keep your 2200, I would certainly recommend it. Mac
  11. Actually, (politics aside), Harry Reid appears to be the one who initially got the ball rolling back in 2007 by appropriating 200 million dollars to investigate/study UFO phenomenon before he left office. The investigation apparently was ongoing and numerous sightings were being documented over period of several years, when the information and video was inevitably leaked to the press. Once the cat was out of the bag, congress demanded answers and a 6 month deadline was set to produce both a classified report for congressional review and a non-classified version for public release. Reid stated publicly that he was aware of hundreds and hundreds of documented sightings not just the few that were selected for the reports that were released.
  12. Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. On 25 June 2021, The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released it's congressionally mandated report on the subject of UFO/UAP activity involving the U.S. military. The declassified report documents 143 incidents from 2004 to 2021. While the report found no evidence of aliens, it did find that UAPs could pose a threat to national security. The report issued by the intelligence community and the Department of Defense did not definitively determine what the military personnel saw. https://www.dni.gov/files/ODNI/documents/assessments/Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf
  13. Not taking anything away from Clay. The subject has been covered by several forum members. The recent news on the subject emphasized the rather serendipitous finding of the deposit which I considered worthy of mention.
  14. Rio’s discovery of lithium at Boron was a fluke. The miner was actually testing Boron’s tailings to see whether the presence of gold was significant and found instead traces of lithium at a concentration higher than domestic projects under development. “We were looking for gold… but we found something better than gold: battery-grade lithium – and the potential to produce a lot of it,” Alex Macdonald, senior engineer at the plant
  15. To get the most money out of it, buy a fake appraisal to go with it, then break the cast!
  16. For emphasis, since possible imprisonment under the code would (obviously), seem to exceed a civil prohibition.
  17. Laws, Policies & Regulations The National Park Service carries out its responsibilities in parks and programs under the authority of Federal laws, regulations, and Executive Orders, and in accord with policies established by the Director of the National Park Service and the Secretary of the Interior. Policies are designed to improve the internal management of the National Park Service. They are not enforceable legal tools. An example of NPS policy is section of Management Policies (2006), dealing with the content and design of park brochures. If you have questions about NPS policies, please contact the Office of Policy. Regulations are mechanisms for implementing laws and for enforcing established policies. Regulations have the force and effect of law, and violations of the same are punishable by fines, imprisonment, or both. Examples of NPS regulations include those on pets (36 CFR 2.15), metal detectors (36 CFR 2.1(a)(7)), and alcoholic beverages (36 CFR 2.35) in the parks. NPS regulations published in title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations are basically detailed statements of how policies will be applied to the public. Once published in this form, they apply to everyone, and their violation may invoke a fine and/or imprisonment.
  18. AIRLINE PILOTS REPORT UFO SIGHTING IN NEW MEXICO https://simpleflying.com/american-airlines-ufo-new-mexico/ On Sunday, February 21st, shortly after passing into New Mexico, the pilots of an American Airlines’ Airbus jet reported seeing a ‘long cylindrical object’ passing by at great speed. The airline has confirmed the sighting but refers to the FBI for any further questions. Almost like a cruise missile . . . American Airlines Flight 2292 was operating from Cincinnati, Kentucky, to Phoenix, Arizona, on Sunday when its pilots reported an unidentified flying object (UFO). What looked like a ‘long cylindrical object’ passed right above the plane. The occurrence was picked up on radio chatter by Steve Douglass, the author of the blog Deep Black Horizon. Around 13:09 local time, the Airbus A320 was cruising at close to 37,000 feet over the northeast corner of New Mexico just west of the town of Clayton. The pilots then reported that something resembling a cruise missile traveled at great speed just above their heads. “Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us – I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing – moving really fast right over the top of us,” the cockpit crew can be heard saying on the recording. Probably just another errant weather balloon . . .
  19. When I first started out hunting silver coins, I routinely ended up finding clads and maybe an old Wheatie or two. When I stopped hunting coins and concentrated on nugget shooting, I started finding silver coins. That's not all bad I guess, but it can be distracting. The historical allure of old silver coins can have a tendency to divert my attention away from gold. Especially if I haven't found any nuggets and suddenly start finding silver coins. I find myself gravitating toward old deteriorating buildings and evidence of habitation, and straying away from the more likely areas I should be seeking in order to find gold. And therein lies the problem. Fortunately, one that I have been increasingly learning to live with.
  20. 22 shots, 3 needles in each arm simultaneously, repeat; then walk through a series of door frames set up as air gun injection stations. It's an interesting way to give shots, with three syringes held between the fingers of each hand, then a quick left and right back hand leaves you standing there with 6 needles sticking out of you. The next Corpsman finishes the job by pushing in the plungers. Another step forward and more shots until they redo all of the shots that had already had been given prior to them losing that all important shot card . . . Out in the bush, between the malaria pills, and the 3-4 halazone tablets that's required in a single canteen of putrid-bacteria infested water from bomb craters and rice paddies, dysentery was a constant reality.
  21. Outstanding! Sometimes no rhyme or reason. Might be worth thinking about renting a Backhoe or Bobcat for a day or two . . .
  22. Hard to beat a lightly brined rotisserie roasted duck basted with green peppercorn sauce and glaze of choice with wild rice on the side . . .
