  1. A clear, sunny day at the range...
  2. My sister-in-law lives just a short drive from Traverse City. She told us that, with all the new snow dumped by the Polar Vortex, she thinks it might be June before all the snow melts. Gotta love Michigan... 😜
  3. I like to deer hunt, but turkey hunting has been a passion of mine...
  4. While you may be right, short of any man-made catastrophes that kill all of us, our future is in space.
  5. Uh, no. The geological record of this planet shows that Earth is somewhere around 4 1/2 billion years old. Samples of Moonrock have been dated from about 3 billion to 4 1/2 billion years old.
  6. The Libs offering RBG their organs should put their "brain" as the first organ to be harvested; clearly, they haven't been using them...
  7. Maybe none of us will go, but within the next 20 years, humans will go to Mars and they can tap these sources of water, and/or water ice, to replenish their breathable oxygen. This will enable long-term missions to Mars and facilitate the creation of permanent bases/colonies on the red planet. Bases/colonies will provide the enclosures needed to maintain an earth-like internal atmosphere, allowing for the cultivation of food and eventually, the raising of livestock. They will also be able to use the water to make rocket propellant (Oxygen is the oxidizer and Hydrogen is the fuel), thereby enabling ships to return to Earth for re-supply of those items that cannot be gotten or manufactured on Mars. So, who cares?? Just everyone who has any interest in making sure that our species survives long into the future. When, not "if", the Earth is struck by another asteroid, like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs 75 million years ago, all life on Earth will likely be destroyed. Colonizing other planets will help ensure that our species continues in the event of a global extinction.
  8. I guess you could call it "flying", but where does NASA attach the red cape?
