How does the diameter of the hole in the wall act with regard to focal distance?

The image above has about a 4 foot focal distance.

Camera Obscura - lots to learn!

Phase out US nuclear plants, Fukushima

Submitted by Oldroser on Sat, 05/04/2013 - 20:37.

 I read here that the massive disaster at Fukushima was because the operator was too cheap to keep up needed repairs, and now has no incentive to clean up the disaster. www.washingtonsblog.com/cat/sciencetechnology

REALNEO at a glance...living in Cleveland nightmares... 1) Homeowner's Insurance is Redlined and inflated costs make it costly to own a home due to crime rates. 2) Auto Insurance is high because of same crime rates. 3) Mail Theft. 4) Identity Theft 5) Income Tax Return Theft 6) Casing by neighbors to rob your house. 7) Predators everywhere eyeballing your children. 8) NGO, City Leadership, and County Leadership all collusively engaged in fraud upon the public. 9) Social Service Agencies thriving off the quotas of the low income; the disabled, and the elderly.

The Big Owe - Montreal's 1976 Olympic Stadium fiasco

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 04/30/2013 - 11:13.

If you look at the image, you can just barely see the roof lift cables extending between the "arm" and the white roof of the stadium.   But, the roof doesn't lift.

As it turns out, this 1976 Montreal Olympic stadium - though still standing and still used -  is forensicly studied as an example of engineering failure and cost over runs.

Getting Old Together after years of friendship - so beautiful it's hard to look at dry eyed

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 04/29/2013 - 22:09.

Sunday I went with a friend to the municipal (not Cleveland's expensive) botanical garden.  As we approached the front entry there was a little plaza, and on the plaza the couple in the image above enjoyed the sun and passer bys.  

It was one of the first warm days of spring, a good time to be outside enjoying being alive.

No Bank Deposits Will Be Spared from Confiscation - bankers cannot be prosecuted for breach of trust (take out your money now)

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 23:34.

In plain simple English – bankers cannot be prosecuted for breach of trust, because it owes no fiduciary duty to the depositor / customer, as he is deemed to be using his own money to speculate etc. There is absolutely no criminal liability.

The trillion dollar question is, Why has no one in the Justice Department or other government agencies mentioned this legal principle?

Gus Frangos is in deep shit with his numerous conflicts of interest.    I hope this serious conflict of interest causes him to lose his six figure salary- paid by the collection of delinquent property taxes.
