    The political twist is almost as amusing as the religious aspect.

    If on the other hand you wanted to collect specimens from a national Park/Monument such as White Sands its a little more regulated.
    (Your White Sands piece doesn't happen to be http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2451.2010.00767.x/full does it?
    Also an interesting article here. https://arstechnica.com/staff/2014/...-buried-in-new-mexico-before-the-atari-games/

    Not this week but no guarantees about next week. :sorry:

    I concur.

    I believe the natives have that covered.

    My fault. I realized a bit late that it might have been too political, which I wasn't intending. Sometimes it's a bit difficult to draw the line between making fun of politics and actually discussing it. The thread by nature sails close to the wind w.r.t. religion and politics.

    Agreed, After reading on Kent, it appears the naive are about all he could prey on. Strange days we are living in.

    "Strange days, indeed"
    --- John Lennon ≈1980​

    hmmm..... (google google google)

    per wiki; "The line "Nobody told me there'd be days like these...strange days indeed...most peculiar, mama" is in contrast to the old adage "My mother told me there'd be days like this.""

    My mother never told me there'd be days like these. :oldgrumpy:
    But mom's are like that. Always a stiff upper lip, even when they aren't British.

    hmmm.... ?

    wiki: Stiff upper lip
    One who has a stiff upper lip displays fortitude in the face of adversity, or exercises great self-restraint in the expression of emotion. The phrase is most commonly heard as part of the idiom "keep a stiff upper lip", and has traditionally been used to describe an attribute of British people in remaining resolute and unemotional in the face of adversity. A sign of weakness is trembling of the upper lip, hence the saying keep a stiff upper lip. When a person's upper lip begins to tremble, it is one of the first signs that the person is scared or shaken by experiencing deep emotion.
