    Re: Global Warming

    How do you displace the apathy? How do you innoculate the population against gullibility? I think some of our cultural belief systems are being used as a control mechanism. We really cannot go there...

    Re: Alternatives to Wooden Beehives?

    You can pick up card tables at yard sales. Same for skill saws. A skill saw upside down screwed to the bottom of the card table and you have a crude table saw.
