Hey, Howdy

Hi, everybody, I'm a father of three and live aboard sailor on the California coast who is raising a reasonably bright group of kids to think critically and be nice people. So far, I don't think I've done any permanent damage. :)

But I've recently stumbled upon the parents of other children in our tiny neighborhood (aka, "the dock") who believe in some truly frightful (-ly ignorant) things, so I was frantically scouring the internet this morning hoping to find gentle means of defusing conversations about "geo-engineering" or (the gods help us) "chemtrails". I'm most concerned with simply keeping everybody around me from lighting the torches and hefting the pitchforks, but my kids play with their kids, too, and I'd hate for the kids to suffer. You know how it is.

I'm deeply appreciative of the overall respectful tone that this place encourages and I'm looking forward to deepening my own knowledge, skills, etc. for dealing helpfully with people who are just a shade out of focus on a few things. Thanks for being here.

Mark Twain viewed puns as the lowest form of humor, and being a very tall man myself I find that everything is in fact lower, so I say to the assembled punditry in the world, "Bring it!" Thanks for the welcome, WeedWhacker.

They may be the lowest form of humour, but at least they ARE humour.

Just like sarcasm confirms the presence of wit ;)

No no no, the owls are responsible for the chemtrails/geoengineering; Sasquatch handles the Israelis. Fox News told me.

Oh FOX said, did it? Must be true then.

Any time I ask someone what did fox say? They just say "a ring ding ding ding ding ding" or something.
i am completely confused.
I am much more at home with ducks.
