I am back and can post here. January 22 my house burned down. This thread may have triggered bit of PSTD. I lost my laptop and phone and have just recently recovered my password app access. My laptop was backed up and my insurance was paid up. No one was significantly injured. I had worse sunburns. So we are doing ok. My house was a total loss as was my Solstice. The front of my Mustang looks like a Girl Scout S’more. We lost a few memorabilia and some furniture that had been in our families for ages. The fire was probably electrical.

Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Jeez!!

1) Glad you didn't go to Kroeger, were about to put out the fire and, the Woodlands FD was just splendid.

2) The pictures have me in stitches.

Suitguy - So sorry to read this. We did the fire detector installation after a fire destroyed part of a house up the street late last fall.

Glad no one was hurt/seriously injured. And that the insurance was paid up. And the laptop backed up.
