Don't get all sentimental RE. I've been told only the good die young. If true you must have another 30 or 40 years yet.

No way in hell I will make it to 90 or 100.

The blog is good.
Its a place to learn as well as an outlet for concerns we all share about the future.
Its a place to debate important issues, not just what colour shoes celebrities wear.
Its a place to voice concern without fear or (much) ridicule.
Its a place to get other points of view.

For me it has been a place to interact with fellow humans and show what we all have in common despite having different ages, cultures, nationalities, beliefs, egos and personalities.

Everyone has flaws, just some peoples are more obvious than others...

Keep the blog going you cantankerous, crusty old arctic hermit. You and your blog have fans in every continent.

Thanks JoW.  The blog does get a nice cross section of people from different continents  Mostly the English speakers of course, UK, Canada, Oz, NZ, South Africa etc.  We do have a regular from Singapore representing the Asian side of things.

Oh, and I still have to prove you are wrong...

Yes, I noted you dropped out of the philosophical debate on thoughts & ideas.  Getting sandwiched between me and Ka in one of those exercises is not for the faint of heart. lol.

The deeper philosophy is just the way those unable to handle reality escape.
Try to bring them back down to earth not get flustered by their pretentious vocabulary.
Well, John, if you know your H. P. Lovecraft, you realize that there are two kinds of people in this world: those who have not stared the Abyss straight in the eye, and those who are stark, raving mad....

I'll let you guess which I am....    :evil4:
Making pigs fly is easy... that is, of course, after you have built the catapult....

I shall return, to channel one of your generals. (I have a corn cob pipe too!)
Tactical retreat to regroup, not a route.

That's what RE stands for!
Reverse Engineering.
I had come up with a few other ideas what the acronym might stand for.....

Reluctant Eremite
Radical Eccentric
Recluse Engineer
Radical Economist
Recalcitrant Egomaniac

You learn a new thing every day.

Actually, it began as Rogue Economist:icon_sunny:  That was my ID on PeakOil before I got booted off the first time.  I waited a few months then re-registered under Reverse Engineer.  It took the Mods a good 6 months to figure out it was the same guy. lol.

These days, it's more like Romantic Existentialist::)

Hmm. Maybe Rodomontade Erroneous. (I still think you are wrong, I just have to prove it!)

I think I have come up with the most fitting description of what you do:

Ruination Evocator.
