Apples and Oranges

I’ve been thinking that perhaps my expectations of people are too high. With so many problems that need addressing, its difficult for people to focus on just one. For example, people who argue with me that a thorough Buttermilk investigation would damage the environment. I’m reading this and I’m thinking – as a country we could cut our energy consumption increase in half if people switched from incandescent bulbs to fluorescent bulbs. All people have to do is buy a different bulb, there is no lifestyle change involved – and its especially relevant now as it gets dark earlier. You Environmentalists can write to me to change my mission for Buttermilk but you can’t get people change a bulb?

Are you kidding?

    Hey Jim. You should check out this study if you haven’t seen it already. Talks about the Cenozoic Uplift in some greater detail. Here’s the paper: http://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2007AM/finalprogram/abstract_130218.htm
    Anyway, is it possible for two different geological strata to trap noncorporeal entities? Sounds like a trip, I know, but my girlfriend is asking. She respects your theories, but believes there are darker forces at work. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I only ride a bike, and YES – I do use those little twisty lightbulbs. I’m with you, man.

    Thanks for the suggestion theseekerof77, I am familiar with the study. The Cenozoic Uplift is an anomaly right here in Colorado that required massive geologic and thermochronologic studies to properly document it. If the Buttermilk anomalies received the same attention the Yellowstone anomalies got then we’d be getting somewhere.

    Great Paper! Keep thinking and spread the word.

    When you guys are talking about mountain activity, can you describe physically what’s happening on the mountain? When people have reported “occurences,” what are they seeing? Thanks!

    i ride these trails almost everyday when i’m not at school and i have to admit, i feel really weird when i’m alone on jacob’s ladder first lift in the morning or after the last lift when the sun is going down and the trails are almost empty. it feels like i’m being watched or sumthing.

    it’s creepy. but during the day when the slopes are packed its fine. Do the geological things change based on time of day or how many people are there? is the it dangerous? Sorry i didnt’ understand the gsa paper at all 😦
