Challenge your self to something further....136,000 feet above the earth's surface

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 10/24/2014 - 20:01.

This is my kinda stuff.  

Totally not required by anything - ie work, the family, the government.

Just required because it is a challenge.  A challenge which gets into your gut and overtakes everything.   The best part of being alive!

You can see the image is at a low altitude (take off) because the balloon is not expanded.

Who would have thought that a deadly chemical is used to fix the xerography on cash register receipts?

ingenuity fest gone corporate

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 09/26/2014 - 15:03.

 Take a look at the ingenuity Fest Cleveland web site -   Think you can find how much a ticket costs?    I couldn't.   So I telephoned their contact number  216-589-9444 and it just rang.......

Take a look at the Board of Directors.  Thomas Mulready would turn over involuntarilly in California.

Pathetic = homo sapiens brain dead

 Fukushima nukes over topped by a sunami, Toledo over topped by algea, Atlanta by a 1/2inch of snow, polar bears smothered by me burning gas in my stupid Detroit car, and now Africa with ebola. 

The older I get the clearer my understanding is: humanity is stupid, aggressive, hatefull, and corporations love it. Down the tubes we go. 

Ebola on an air plane. 

When we had the black plague...was there any intercontinental travel?

We are total ignoramisus. 

btw, Le Bra is back to Cle!

Wake up America - we have folks who are willing to work hard - scrap collecting in a shopping cart is hard - but our system fails to allow them to be legitimately engaged.   

In Cleveland, Ohio (image above) and across the nation scrap metal yards are often busiest on Friday afternoons as the weeks' collection of metal is brought in for beer money.

Skate boarding - FOCUS

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 04/16/2014 - 19:27.

A few years back I imaged young persons using a public street to skateboard.   Illegal on public streets.  Can't use the sidewalk either. Sensible, sure because of safety.  But...

When snow snarled Atlanta, Ga. a month ago it was perfectly apparent to anyone that our auto based "transportation system" is pathetic.   PATHETIC!

Finally some good news for Cle - a reduction in air traffic pollution from Hopkins

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 02/05/2014 - 11:49.

Airports are the largest air pollution generator in a community - larger than many coal fired power plants.    And the noise from airport landings and take offs reduces the quality of life (and sleep) for millions of people around the airport.  

Air travel is the least energy efficient mode of transportation. 

Airports depress housing values and thus depress tax revenues for airport communities.

Harvesting COLD

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 01/26/2014 - 21:08.

Ever been to an ice harvest?

Harvesting COLD

To use next summer.

We need to re-invent the past. 

Today, in July and August we just burn train car loads of coal to produce CO2 and electricity for our air conditioners.  

Today we are SMART!  Today we're GREEN!

What do Chris Christie and Rob Ford have in common? They're Toast

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/11/2014 - 20:25.

 It is inconcievable to me that Gov. Christie was not in the loop.  

Come on.  One of the best "practical jokes" I have ever heard of...

Lane closures to teach the unsupportive mayor.   

Practical jokes don't go undiscussed...that's the fun part...backslapping each other and snorting in laughter about the practical joke. 

We had practical jokes at work - everyone knew about the jokes, including the management.

Night Out - Living the Shopping Cart Lifestyle

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 12/18/2013 - 18:41.

When you live the shopping cart lifestyle, you don't need to remember your front door key when you leave your cart. 

You don't need to worry about rent either.   Just find a park or some public property and your life's belongings are probably going to be alright for a few hours.  

In America you have a lot of options on how to live!

America - land of shopping cart opportunity

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 12/14/2013 - 13:20.

In Ohio recycling beer and beverage containers is light work - because in Ohio  aluminum cans are only recovered for their weight as aluminum.  In other states recycling is done to recover the five cent or 10 cent "deposit" per beverage container - whether the container is aluminum or glass.     This means that  the can man's load is a lot heavier out of Ohio than in Ohio.

Trash and Litter as FREE Advertising

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 11/24/2013 - 21:52.

If every day my neighbor threw his coffee cup with his name on it in my bushes along the public sidewalk in front of my house I could sue him and prevail. 

But if my neighbor sold coffee in mugs with my neighbor's name on the mug, and the the mug ended up everyday in my bushes along the public sidewalk in front of my house I couldn't sue him and prevail.

Automated spam "user" applications to Realneo require changes to open user policy

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/22/2013 - 12:01.

The image above shows the dozens of spam "user" applications which came into realneo admin this morning.  

Some malicious programmer has automated the submission of phony user applications to Realneo.  

This new problem requires that Admin close the present application process temporarily.  

A changed new user application process will be instituted.
