What expensive sunglasses he is wearing too! I was just about to turn off the computer to catch a bus to my old running grounds for a 10 mile
constitutional, but I couldn't resist commenting. Well good luck anyway!
Whoops I was just reading the rest of your introduction:
"We certainly do not want to discourage the involvement of helpful critical analysis and skeptical thought, this will always be a very important part
of collaboration on ATS. However, we will be strict in managing the tone and style of such exchanges. Please keep your critical involvement to helpful
focus on issues, facts, and analysis of possibilities, and do not engage in disruptive character attacks, snipes, and insults in any way. Any such
activity will result in a warning and removal of your post."
Is the above just skepticism or is it insulting? Well I am simply skeptical of the presentation, no insults here! The intention here is a suggestion
for quality, maybe a slightly bigger budget for the costume, after all it is almost Halloween!
Recently watching the History Channel, about the actual Skunkworks in 1946. There was a test pilot in one of the first jets who put on a Gorilla suit
and flew past some propeller planes. This was then a secret project so those pilots had a heckuva time explaining what they saw. "It was a plane
without propellers flown by a Gorilla sir." Then the debriefing took on a new tone, "nothing happened here, have you got that, you saw nothing."
Well best wishes to all.
