How much power does the work require? That may constrain your choices. You can figure that our by adding up the watts consumed by each light. For instance, five lights using 200 watts each will need a source capable of delivering 1000 watts continuously, at the required voltage. And what voltage is ...

Love ya, Cowboy Angel, but I must disagree with you on Social Security. No one claims that SS is on the verge of collapse today; but rather that it will become ever less able to support the old while becoming ever more burdensome on the young. And nobody proposes cutting off benefits for older worke...

Thanks to burningflyer for those photos. Stuart, I think going to the event to show your support is OK. Appreciation is also usually welcome. It's the exploitation that's disrespectful. Or maybe it's just sad... to be a mere observer and not a participant. The Critical Tits ride is a brilliant and c...

On visual themes...the common intelligence maintains that surrealism is the language the brain uses to converse with itself. There's a whole body of visuals there... Better still, there's unbounded potential for new visuals (and sounds) there. The surrealists thought that the power of the goal-driv...

GuinivereElise's remarks "as a former Minnesotan" are so apt. And I find myself in close agreement with Stuart's term-by-term analysis. Much of the fretting over which term of endearment to pick seems to arise out of fear. Fear of how other's will see your relationship. Fear of offending your deares...

OK, we all (or at least, most of us) recognize that the increasing awareness and popularity of the Burn has some downsides. During the 19th century utopian movement it became clear that the maximum size of a democratic utopian community was about 1,800 people. Above that size the need for services, ...
