    Obviously there's no Daleks involved otherwise it'd be an ExtermiNation.

    It's more or less like the 75 emails I get from Amazon every week asking me to leave reviews for stuff I ordered.

    It's not something businesses set up. It's just Google trying to get more activity. The more people they get leaving Google reviews the fewer people are leaving Yelp reviews. Ultimately, they want to put Yelp out of business, and I hope they succeed.

    A tad more on this. The Earth "wants" to be a certain way. The atmospheric pressure and density, the distance from the Sun, the rotation of the planet, the amount of water on the surface, the volcanic activity, all act to make the surface and atmosphere suitable for life. And in every instance when that stasis has been radically altered...from having the land all over the planet virtually on fire (when the dinosaurs went extinct) to at least one instance of a prolonged period where the entire planet was covered with a mile thick layer of ice.....our planet has eventually gone back to roughly what we see today. And through it all, some life has survived. So do I think in a million years the planet will be supporting complex life? probably. Will we be among them? No idea.

    Yes. The chemistry of the atmosphere is the same as before, so it would eventually go back to homeostasis. Neil deGrasse Tyson gave me hope when he said that if all the carbon on the planet escaped into the atmosphere, we still wouldn't have another Venus, with 800 degree temperatures. There are undoubtedly computer simulation models that are pretty accurate. I just don't know what they are.

    I can't say I love the new layout. Seemed fine on mobile, but on desktop it feels less inviting for some reason to me. I'm mostly curious what impact it is going to have on ads.

    RIP Neil Peart

    One of my musical heroes, Neil Peart, drummer and lyricist for Canadian prog rockers Rush passed away on Tuesday from brain cancer. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/neil-peart-rush-obituary-936221/ Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland had this to say about Neil: Neil in action on the Letterman show in 2011: And with fellow band members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson in 1979: RIP Neil.

    RIP Neil Peart

    wow , I'm shocked.Just found out a couple of hours ago. One of my major influences in taking up the drums back in the late 70s when I was 10 yrs old.. He was one of a kind. Him and Bonham were it for me. And a really, really sweetheart of a man from what I always saw of him. RIP Sir Neil

    Google just asked me for a review?

    Thanks DWolfe I suppose I should make myself a little clearer. The first part of my post, I had looked up that business on my PC, and the review request came on my phone, right? Thing is I NEVER left the property. They sent this simply because I had searched this business. The review asked "what did you like about X business?" and "did you buy anything?" I was never there! The other part, was all stuff that has happened, randomly, in the past. Now, I do know that businesses can put a 'beacon' of sorts outside their business. I think this started with the Pokeman Go thingy. ???? NO idea. And to answer your question, no, I am not signed up for a local guide.. LOL.. seriously, I never leave this property! Unless Google wants reports on what it's like out at my mailbox, I'm no good to them.

    Google just asked me for a review?

    Did you sign up as a local guide with google ? They maybe tracking you that way or through your maps and where you parked your car. Seen that when going to a local fast food chain in a strip mall. Google is always asking to review another place on the property not the Burger joint. You can correct the location but it is usually a pain in the A** Some sources out there claim that is how google is making their Ai more accurate. Also supposedly they are trying to rate if directions are very good or bad ( they give multiple choices ). This is to help with their self driving cars. Hth's

    Claude went there to live, after a while he became sexually frustrated. He sent a message to Riffle: "Get Your "Arse" To Mars" That's how I Totally Recall it anyway.

    What, you mean that only 1 in 10 humans are killed? Perhaps you meant eradicated, eliminated, destroyed or wiped out. From the desk of The Chancellor of the Whatty School Of Pedantry.
