Plague may have helped end Roman Empire
Fri May 10, 2013
It's nice they were able to confirm the Plague of Justinian was indeed Bubonic Plague, but this is not news. It was, however, probably the killing blow to the Western Roman Empire. It killed 1/2 the people in the Mediterranean in one year. One contemporary historian reports that when the Lombard's m …
Ancient Europeans mysteriously vanished 4,500 years ago
Tue Apr 23, 2013
My bet is the displacement of people when the Black Sea filled - about 3,000 BC.
Mysterious sundial may be secret to Viking navigation
Thu Apr 11, 2013
I wonder if they came up with this themselves, or they picked it up somewhere else? I think the Novgorod settlements had sacked Constantanople prior to the settling of Greenland, so they might have gotten something similar in that adventure and passed the technology on to the home folks.
First Thoughts: A consequential anniversary
Mon Mar 18, 2013
I think it's time the the Republicans ponied-up and pay for the Iraq war. I think a 10% tax surcharge on registered Republicans would be appropriate. If it hadn't been for this war, we wouldn't be talking deficits now.
Is telecommuting dead? Don't count on it, experts say
Tue Feb 26, 2013
I have telecommuted for the last 5 years and it has been a great benefit to me and the company. Working at home has eliminated many office distractions and allowed me to concentrate on my work. I have been very successful and have added millions to the company bottom line. When I do go into the offi …
Excavation gives up all the dirt on ancient earthen mound
Fri Feb 1, 2013
I would like some evidence these people were hunter/gatherers. I'll bet there was agriculture going on around settled villages, with a parallel hunting culture. No reason not to have several hundred in a village. Alternatively, it may signal the beginnings of organized agriculture. This may have bee …
Ancient Rome's hairdo for vestal virgins re-created
Wed Jan 9, 2013
Vestals also wore a headress made up of 7 rolls of wool stacked on top of each other to form an inverted cone to which was attached a thin woolen veil. This was probably worn any time a vestal left the house of the Vestals, which also housed the Pontifex Maximus. Other than the sacred fire and some …
'Horrible' sea level rise of more than 3 feet plausible by 2100, experts say
Sun Jan 6, 2013
I think it is important to point out that sea levels were 20 feet higher than now, during portions of the last inter-glacial period (Eemian Interglacial Period). Not only will the oceans get higher they are going to get warmer which puts more water vapor and energy into the atmosphere. We're going t …
So where will all that 'legal' pot come from? Sale of pot stymied
Tue Dec 11, 2012
POT WARS!!! Until the Gvt gets it's act together on production and distribution, people will get it where they always have. There is a 40 year old dealer system that works very well. The interesting thing to see, is if the current network is going to fade away? I'll bet not. Once legalization gains …
Heavy snowfall blankets Upper Midwest and Northern Plains
Mon Dec 10, 2012
Just went out to a sheltered place in the woods and stuck in my yard stick - 18" in Stillwater. This will make a great skiing base and it is quite beautiful today. We'll have everything tidied up by the end of the day.
