Re: Ablative Palin Absolute (yay!)

Loren I think we do have the "vocative" case in English. It's just that instead of a different ending to denote the vocative we capitalize the first letter of the name and put a comma after it. I have a sneaking suspicion that all languages [more]

Re: Bull God Toreador Priest

Bullfighters could just touch the bull with a paintball, gaining more kudos for paint on the horns and head, for example.

Re: LA Times: Retirement Nomads

It is less expensive than rent. A mobile home requires monthly rental payments, taxes, repairs and insurance.

Re: Peak Oil

Well I'm already retired and have truly simplified and decluttered down to serenity. I will have to say one of the problems I have with the small house movement is 1) its expense- it seems to me to be too much like a fad for rich folks and 2) because [more]

Yep it's all attitude. Credit cards can be stolen just as easily as cash and yes the cash is gone forever but the hassle of a stolen credit card would be just as debilitating to me mentally as dealing with lost money. Credit cards can be compromised [more]
