Exactly.  She means someplace where you don't have to spend a minimum of ten or twenty dollars to keep your child happy.

Im not sure, but i think there's some indoor places here you dont need to pay for your child to play. but Im not 100% sure.

i've always wanted to change the declination of the moon's orbit around
the earth to .5 degrees relative to the earth's orbit around sun

this would give us two or three lunar and solar eclispes most every month

they are incredibly beautiful, especially total solar eclispes

granted i was competent to do that,
i would add 5 more moons in the same orbit around the earth,
equally spaced in a hexagon

they would each be in two of the other Lagrangian L4 or L5 points,
which would make for a very stable orbit

yup - six times the number of eclipses each month
(a maximum of 18 a month!)
and 3 moons up in the sky to look at all the time!

ocean tides would be diminished alot though,
which would change the environment a good bit

though the tidal braking on the earth's rotation would increase
six-fold, so the day's lenthening would speed up

I'd like to say you took the words out of my mouth, but I'm not clever enough to have thought of it

Cool idea though - How do we make it happen?  :coolsmiley:

was lookin at clouds on my 4th attempt to see a total solar
(scored on attempts 1 and 2! ;-)
and thought to myself,
how could we make these happen more often ...

an ideal way to do the first would be
a force field that allowed the transfer of
angular momentum at arbitary angles
- could just steal some from the Sun or Jupiter

also be a nifty space drive - i know of no known theory
to design such a drive from

a way we can conceive of would be based on
robotic nano-tech
bring in massive amounts of
hydrogen and oxygen from the kuiper belt,
and put massive rockets on the moon,
to slowly change the declination of it's orbit.
would take a lot of H2 + O2

i'll leave the second - adding five moons -
for the rest of you for now

We're gonna be rockstars, guys.  Me and Tim and Brittany.  Brittany might not know that, yet, and I just learned about it.  But it sounds like a great idea, nonetheless.  Then I can work on my list.

We talked about it last night.
All we need are some instruments and time and talent and stuff.
we'll work it all out.
I got some ideas.



Well, I've got instruments and talent, so we've got half of it down.  It's the time and "stuff."

I have written lots of songs.

yeah, we have a great game plan.  First, we're going to name the band make a myspace page.  next comes the album art, and we'll book some shows.  then we're going to figure out some tunes, and we'll rent some instruments, and learn to play them.  tim is doing back-up vocals.

ewwww, fix that quote.

Yeah, it sounds like a great plan.  Maybe I should rent a cello, again.

You guys have to design the album art, because I can't draw. 

Are you and I going to take turns doing most of the singing?  Tim should probably stick to just backing vocals only. 

We need to rent a drum machine, or maybe Isaiah can make some drum beats for us on fruity loops ( ;D).

Can we sing like the black girls who backed the Rolling Stones?

Maybe they weren't black.  Which would be okay because we aren't, either.

They should put little pH scales on deodorants, so you could eventually find one that's perfect for your body and get it right every time, even when you change brands.


and hugo, my son doesn't think that way, yet.  I don't think all 3-year-olds have maturity foremost on their minds -- but maybe it is just mine.  Either way, it's not my fault, it's the way he was made, so put that in your pipe and smoke it.
