Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

I was thinking about the wonderful world of WiFi earlier this afternoon while I read Patrap's blog and listened to McKenna's talks on various things. Tloml was on the desktop and my grand daughter was listening to Japanese Comics on her mom's laptop.
There are a few downsides to this trend - I have not had what I would call a "Real" conversation with my Gr. Dau. since she got her own iPod - before that she would steal mine - but the fact that three different people were watching or reading three different up to date sources in the same house at the same time is mind boggling to me. Tloml and I still maintain good talk time - that's how I caught her (and she me, I guess)- we still "Laugh and Cry and (..." ")Come over to the Window" - Dang! I used to sing that song but parts are now missing.
Thanks to Google:
I worked with a lovely Marianne in Liberia and we mustered out together back to the Netherlands. When I met her in Albania on my next project I grabbed her and gave her a big hug. She winched and told me she had broken a shoulder not that long before.
I'm getting to the prediction:
In the mid '80s we were in "The Big Smoke", Vancouver, and cable TV was being installed. Many people had the home computers of the time -
I pulled out my journal of that year and looked for a reference there to whatever prediction I will eventually try to clear up but what I found was something mentioning "Chandler Wobble" and Ihad totally lost any frame of reference. So back to Google:
To be continued - Tloml just brought me a Beef Sandwich.
Forming concrete is a type of "Prediction". One has to think backwards because the form is to be removed. Then one needs to predict some reasonable amount for the volume you order.
One thing you can count on: when the "mud" shows up it will be a "Gong Show" no matter how well your forms are built. That stuff is really heavy and there is a limited "working time". When things go as planned you are simply worn out after the event. When things go sideways all bets are off.
