General Discussion / Canals in Venice
« on: January 13, 2020, 05:59:45 PM »
Back in November, tides in Venice pushed water levels to "50 year highs."  Two months later, things are MUCH different.

Venice canals almost dry, two months after severe floods

Does anybody remember the story about those high school kids who allegedly acted aggressively towards a guy in DC.  When video evidence proved that the media fabricated much of what they were saying, the family of the one kid sued.  CNN recently settled out of court.

Enter Sandman

Nope. They only care about their members. In fact, a former union president (at least I think he was a president) said "I'll start putting the needs of students ahead of the teachers when they start paying dues." Wow. :rolleyes:

At least he was honest. 

I got sick and tired of hearing that "we only care about the children" lie during October's strike in Chicago.

One of their demands was to have a nurse in every school (which I'm totally on board with).  However, part of me thinks they just threw in that clause to gain support from the public.

I neither love nor loathe that Peloton ad, but the people who are complaining and crying "sexism" over it really need to get a life.

You know, it's one thing to lose a grandparent or even a parent.  But when we lose a friend (near our own age) it makes us look at things a little bit differently.  I came VERY close to it in 1996, and that experience changed me as a person.

We all like to think we're immortal and too young to die, but every now and then reality smacks us right in the face.  We've all lost two friends on this board (Martin and now Chazz), and I can't help but think that there may be a few others that we don't know about.

I forget how old Martin was, and Chazz was 38.  I lost a good friend at 25, a high school classmate at 16, and a sister at 2 DAYS old.

Thank you for being a friend, Charles.

24 of the past 28 days have been colder than average.  80+ consecutive hours below freezing (and counting).

The record lowest high temperature for November 12th was 28 in 1995.  The high temperature for November 12,2019: 17 degrees.

I don't quite know what to say.

Knew Chazz for years on these boards.  A very nice person and an unbelievably talented artist.  His artwork on the 4000 emulator is magnificent.  He was a good friend to many of us.

Godspeed Charles. 

Iím not trying to say that forms are now totally obsolete

Not yet anyway. 

I've seen several boards die off.  Forums like this one are going the way of the horse and buggy.
