I wonder if IDK meant "flat" earth, or really meant "fiat" earth? I'm pretty sure there's a Flat Earth conference (count me out), but a Fiat Earth has deep religious, creationist meaning (count me in).

Nov 18 : 12:40pm
Thanks, IDK! Something I didn't know.

Here's my favorite little known 'thing' of nature: a "Looming".

I actually saw one, summer time on Santa Monica Beach.

Nov 18 : 08:50am
Amazing where our minds go...

Nov 18 : 08:22am

Like poking the bear.

Read that in the Farmers Almanac. Thought you all would appreciate.

BC! You can trust me to always be true and wholesome.

Well, it’s that time again. Off to the fiat earth conference in Denver.
