Are there any kind of smoke detectors that connect to the Internet so that you can get an alert over your phone -- like a security camera's motion detection?

The Earth doesn't care. It was here a few billion years before we got here and will be here a few billion after until the sun gobbles it up. Any destruction we cause, we only cause to ourselves. We might give it a little scarring and some bruises, but it will probably get itself back to normal in a billion years or so after we kill ourselves.

Well, unless we open up a black hole or something. Then the Earth might care, but really, we'd only be cutting its life span by like 20% and it is doomed anyways.

"An ecosystem is a community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system."

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecosystem


"Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year."

Will celebrate Earth Day - in a split second - when a super volcano or asteroid causes an extinction level event. Until then, I express my apologies to the Earth for the growing and destructive parasite known as mankind.

Met him in person in Kentucky. Wasn't impressed.

BTW: Still seeing my "wealthy" neighbors watering their lawns and plants during the daytime. No wonder why this area is up for 35% restriction.

I think eventually there will be an entire saline infrastructure and desalination will be done via private business and residence (or communities) using a combo of solar and household battery aystems. Once perfected, made to be efficient, and cost effective freshwater collection will be disallowed and made to return to the natural ecosystem.

The other thing (temporary measure) that will probably happen is forcing businesses that utilize a lot of water to come up with private interstate irrigation systems or face heavy tariffs or sanction.

And for those of us living near Los Angeles, we can save money and simply watch the local news for a similar entertainment value. Nothing quite compares to a live "Breaking News" story with a car chase taking place. Typically, one guy drives frantically from 20 to 100 + MPH in city streets having 15 police cars trailing behind him and helicopters buzzing overhead. It never ends well for the suspect.

what a sad life you have there

It's fine not to play this game, differen't strokes and all. But I'm curious what you're playing currently.

Often C&C style games. I jump into an occasional game of Quake here and there. I haven't seen any new games lately that make me want to buy them. It has to have a spark, intensity or unique character which I really can't articulate. My favorites are arcade style games like this or this and especially this.

I guess you never cared about your parents then.

That certainly is a mixed feeling having received food, shelter, education, and a lot of verbal-emotional abuse. Perhaps people that enjoy pets had a happy childhood. There might be a pattern or not.

Ironically I think you would enjoy owning a dog more than most, you should really consider it. They bring a lot of joy into your life and if you haven't had a great family upbringing then all the more so.

Maybe, I'll wait for a robot dog.


You can name him Skynet

Haha! In all seriousness, if I decide to look for a dog I'll check out the local shelter. I've heard it's good for the soul to adopt a rescue dog. Seeing hurt animals brings me to tears every-time. I'll have to try to be fairly thick-skinned if I go there.

How dare they unconditionally love us!
Unconditionally dependent on the owner for food and shelter. Otherwise, I doubt it sincerely cares at all.

In many ways owning a pet isn't a bad beginners course in parenthood, much of the same principles about sacrifice and responsibility apply equally well.

When I was a kid I had cats, birds and fish but never to the point where they controlled my life or I felt they were equal to humans.

As to the dog being an introduction into parenting -- perhaps you're right but it seems to a bit wasteful to expend all that money, time and energy on an animal instead of say a human being's education who can possibly change the world. The dog has a very limited intelligence and I just don't see it inventing things, building things or coming up with insights that could improve human existence. I also don't see a dog taking care of an aging owner like a son or daughter would for a parent. It's doubtful the dog will work to provide the owner food, medicine and shelter.

10. Re: Out of the BlueCanine Stomach Flu: The Contagious Norovirus Could Be Spread From Dog To Owner. Apr 13, 2015, 13:49 BobBob
 
People treat their dogs way too much like they are human beings. Quite often I see a person returning home quickly to feed the dog. Can't take a vacation, no one to take care of the dog. Can't go out, no one to dog-sit. Often I see a person walking a dog along the beach and having a full (imaginary) conversation with it - as if though the dog has any idea what the person is saying; or if it did understand, would care about what the person has to say. And don't get me started on dog poop and constant dog barking.

Dog ... dog ... dog ... Aaaaah! Dizzy

How would you even determine the medal winner?

All participants are 'winners'. The point is to demonstrate the ridiculousness of the notion expressed with a different challenge in another equally ludicrous situation.

If playing video games can be considered a competitive sport, then masturbation should be entered into the Olympic Games.

Won't save em from the craptastic underdelivering design.

California is running out of water but the MIIC needs to waste 400 billion on some shitty planes for a war that'll never happen.

Spring for me is a season of pain and misery. No matter where I'm living I have non-stop allergies which always lead to a sinus infection. I feel like a zombie after taking so many pills yet my eyes are still burning constantly. I seem to sneeze randomly for no apparent reason. Hurry up summer!

Well it's supposed to hit 15 today and 10 tomorrow, but the next week is back into well below seasonal - below by 10 degrees on average, sigh - then the week after that looks like it's supposed to start getting back into the norms. Fingers effing crossed.

Celsius or Fahrenheit? (22 C today and 26 C tomorrow - here).

I wonder if my neighbors will stop washing their cars outside. I wonder if the water restrictions will really be enforced.
