    Yeah, I got a robot vacuum as an early Christmas present. It spends more time trying to hump table legs like a randy turtle than vacuuming.

    You must have some pretty sexy table legs! My GF just bought me a Shark with the dump station. It does a fantastic job.

    You do know that he is talking about corralling the tadpoles, correct?

    That’s what I thought. Why on earth would the ability to delete your own post be removed? Am I censored from self censoring??

    Apparently yes. You can only edit posts for an hour, but you can never delete them or edit them after the initial hour. It's pretty stupid.

    It's amazing what you are censored from on this forum nowadays. We went from the gun slingin' wild west to Oprah's rainbow filled wonderland of the woke seemingly overnight.

    It's actually better as of late though, so I'll give them that. Still, some things still just leaves one scratching their head...

    Thanks but I did not know there was a delay for night shots. That's why it's a bit fuzzy. I moved. It's like a 2 to 3 second exposure I guess for night.

    That's not a bad thing, IMO. It adds an aura of surreality to the photo, which is really what makes it for me. The reflections on the water are incredible.

    Me too. I liked the reflections. I wish I had a real camera and knew how to use it.

    ^^^ from the man who brought us the geodesic dome, R. Buckminster Fuller.
    The one above might be (???) a 'recreation' of an original Dymaxion, but I am not at all sure about that. It looks a little too harmonius based on the images I've seen (e.g., the curved windscreen glass).

    Another Dymaxion sighting that always amused me, as seen on the back cover of the first WB money-grubbing Grateful Dead "Best of" album, Skeletons from the Closet.

    what's that, about a '68?
    I would've been... older than that. ;)

    That one is actually a '71 427 Cobra Jet.

    Actually it’s a 429CJ.

    I'd bet there was a multi-million dollar study funded by our GOV. to determine that outcome. >:)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
