As to Quetzals, they're Trogons I believe, not Pheasants. Songbirds, I think...
Parrots, actually. The northernmost surviving species in the Americas after the demise of the Carolina Parakeet.

Yeah, I'll second nomination for Calbeck. I should assume that self-nominations are a no-no, correct? One would assume that someone who -wants- the power shouldn't be allowed to have it. 8-) Not always true, but I've seen it often enough. The trick is to nominate someone who'll accept it but not wa...

Someone's just had the wheels fall off in a fairly major fashion, there. Heh. Gotta love it.

It's not like the ancient scribes had cross-check sums. More seriously questionable is the stuff in Kings and Chronicles where the same histories are repeated but with differences in reign lengths, manner of deaths, and such-like. Or the Noah's Flood tale, which flies in the face of biology (several...

If they figure it out, they prolly will. If Nip -claims- it, they'll figure he's lying and faked up the evidence. Best to remain silent at this point.

He's a scared kid. If he's been doing things by accident, his townsfolk could be doing anything from trying to beat the devil out of him to actively trying to burn him at the stake. If the Raconnans can make friends with him while he's drained (pity the initial contact was bad) and give him sanctuar...

Normally Axel, I'd agree with you about the comment on 'dignity in death'. But this was a leader who some people had a nearly religious love for. By videotaping his moment of death, instead of leaving it unfilmed for the sake of his dignity, that guy managed to cut down the inevitable flood of "Sad...

Technically, J.A.M., the trial was on shaky legal ground; to wit: If it was an American trial, it would have to wait until after cessation of hostilities; otherwise, it would be an abrogation of legal powers. If it's an Iraqi trial, the "crimes against humanity" charge for which he received the dea...

I was gonna say. When the Arabs are happy, they celebrate by running around yelling and firing weapons into the air. When they're mad, they show their anger by running around yelling and firing weapons into the air. Hardly worth the bother to sort it out, nie?

Two or three photons, depending on whether the proton-antiproton pair have opposing or synchronous spin, actually. All kinds of weird conservation laws in there. But yes. Something other than pure energy coming out indicates that the neutron got involved.

Not quite. That's an antiproton- deuteron interaction. Both the neutron and the proton of the deuterium nucleus are playing, which is why you still have a net plus-one baryon number at the end. The kaon-antikaon pair is an interesting result, though, especially since kaons are as close to mixed matt...

Well, a proton is UUD and a neutron is UDD - so the interaction would have a U U and a D D pair. the U D combo I dunno about. I suspect that it would absorb a bit of the energy of the pair annihilation and end up as a UD and a DU meson/antimeson pair, which might or might not have sufficient kinetic...

A good man, a vastly underrated president, and a class act.

A witch-hunt against Nixon might have been more damaging than the Carter presidency, and it might...
