Re: Pretty pictures

https://i.cubeupload.com/X9cABq.jpg A bit of contrast to Alan's warm water photos. Most people don't like the cold, so have to enjoy the beauty of cold weather scenes via pictures. This is Lake Superior about 10 miles into Minnesota from the Canadian border. The lake is fresh water and it was about...

Re: Nature is stranger than we can imagine

Enjoyed the Elephants. Thanks for those postings.

Here's a link to a livestream of an Eagles nest, operated by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The Eagles just returned to the nest today (Jan. 23).

Note: Typed too fast. So edited. And, if someone is going to say, "Hey Alan, you are being judgmental", well, yes I am. And you should be to. We need a judgement on this Crazy Man. Smart people, I think, will judge him poorly.
Judgemental? Seems more like accurate observation to me.

Re: How to teach children to think for themselves?

Ask them questions. Give them some information and let them process it on their own; then guide them towards the right solution (if there is a "right" solution). The important thing is to ask questions that make them think, rather than just stuff them with information.
