    Maybe she thinks it's Weiner.

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    Is your name "Michelle or Chelsea"; because otherwise why are you commenting about it, at all.

    You?

    I'm in the U.S.

    Travel:
    Liverpool to watch a major EPL match, see Penny Lane (hopefully 2020).
    Alaska via cruse ship (also hopefully 2020)
    Learn to make Paella as good as my my mother did.


    Also rans...
    Visit Dealy Plaza for the first time and tour the JFK museum there--I'm a buff on the subject.
    Play a round of golf at a private country club--never done that
    Carve out enough time to see Yosemite or Yellowstone or The Grand Canyon for more than just a few hours...spend the night truly camping out in one of those parks.

    Probably will never happen:
    Fly first class coast to coast or Trans atlantic/pacific
    Ride on one of the bullet trains (may do that at Liverpool if there is one)
    Spend a week going to theaters in NY.

    I spent a few nights are the lodge at Old Faithful. Buffalo right outside our window. First week of the season and few we're there. Awesome trip.

    Hopefully the “caldera” won't finally choose that time to finally "blow it's top".

    There were very few people around that week so we got to drive the whole park and saw everything.

    Funny story: We were in a hot spring area and my son was using an infrared thermometer to sample temperatures of the various pools. The stuff is hot! There are small signs everywhere warning tourists not to touch the water, stay on paths etc. Some elderly guy bent down to touch he water at the edge of a path and before he got his finger in the water a park ranger was all over him. Yelling at him like he was a school kid. He gave the poor bastard a lengthy lecture and we heard the whole thing while we were still in earshot.

    When I was about 10 or 11, we all went to Yellowstone.

    A week after we were there, there was a report of a young boy (don't remember the age) who ran and went into one of the hot mud pots.

    They had to retrieve what remains they could, just bones, using a special wire "scoop".

    They said he probably only had a second or two of feeling anything, before his entire body shut down and started dissolving.

    Within the last year or so (that I can remember) some guy either stuck his hand or foot in one of the pools.

    Needless to say, he suffered a great deal of damage.

    We drove up to some bald summit on one of these trips and there was an area with a heavy steel railing and a 1000' vertical drop on the other side. My daughter refused to go anywhere near it. The rest of the area was un-fenced, a basketball court sized area sort of flat that quickly got steeper away from the center, to a point where the footing was impossible and it was bye-bye. There was a Japanese tourist there with his young son, and the kid was running around in ever widening circles away from his father, and the dad was enthralled by the scenery and not paying attention. I yelled over to the guy, he obviously didn't understand a word, then I pointed to his son...

    The look of terror on the guy's face as he tried to catch the boy was priceless...
