  1. This video is actually quite interesting … but at 5:39 minutes, I’m already wanting to “hurry it up.” I suppose if I was sitting in my easy chair and not blogging, I might be more inclined to watch the entire video. As it is … well, I’m not sure whether I’ll get back to it or not. In any case, I’ll save the email so … maybe later?

    1. Hello Nan. You know me and science / learning. I love it almost as much as politics. Maybe more these days. How I wonder how much my life would have been different if I had been adopted by a family that would have encouraged my wanting to learn instead of banning my access to books. Damn I wish I had been born when there was an internet but then I figured that would have been banned for me as well. Oh well there will be many more forced births now thanks to the religious right wing SCOTUS and republican controlled states.

      Anyway I understand not all videos are for everyone and not everyone has a setup I do where I have two screens one for internet blogging and one for videos. Hugs
