“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Health news

In this week's lesson from the medication front: When the warning label on the medicine says "May cause sensitivity to sunlight" what they mean is that after a week of dealing with the effects of a few hours at the beach, you would much prefer to have gotten some simple second degree burns and peeling, than to be dealing with the spreading rash and insomnia and other fun.

So, this formerly able to tan nicely half native will be investing in some SPF 10 million soon I guess...

They say that 2 minutes in the California sunshine, is too much these days. After we lost the ozone layer. But, that was before there was Sunblock 5000. Just apply a pint to your body, and you're good for hours.

Yeah the atmosphere ain't what it used to be. I recommend Coppertone Sport SPF 50. It doesn't smell like fruit and does a good job even on uber pale underground dwellers like me;)
