## PF Random Thoughts

 Quote by Borek That's what chickadees do here. They sit on the feeder and throw seeds away till they find one they like. I haven't seen European goldfinch in my yard, they are not very common.
The chickadees are more frugal here. The goldfinches are prima-donnas and throw away good seeds like crazy. They have tiny beaks for finches, and maybe they can't easily crack black-oil sunflower seeds, but it ticks me off to see them throwing so much good food onto the ground.

Goldfinches prefer thistle seed and smaller seeds. I'm sure the mice, chipmunks and squirrels appreciate the discarded seeds.

Meanwhile - butterfly is not so common

 Yesterday, when someone said "I'm a good person", what I heard was "I'm a moron"... Who was stupid ? Him or Me ? Both ?... Ah, you don't care... ?
 Watching a german movie as background while I studied for German was not a terrible idea. Having that movie be the most depressing Holocaust film I have ever seen was probably not so bright...

 I got distracted from reading about Rømer's calculation of the speed of light and ended up on a wikipedia tangent learning about marine chronometers. When reading the history of past scientific discoveries it's easy to forget that there were some amazing pieces of engineering created with what was known at the time.
 Recognitions: Gold Member Marine chronometers were life-savers! The longitude problem was a big big one.
 Admin Union Pacific (UP) Railroad is observing 150 years of operation. Although Abraham Lincoln established the charter in 1962 and groundbreaking took place in 1963 in the settlement of Omaha in the Nebraska Territory, construction was delayed until 1865 due to insufficient funds. The Union Pacific connected with the Central Pacific in Promontory, Utah in May, 1869. http://up150.com/timeline
