We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I suspect people are tired of me pointing it out, but modern Chaos Theory - aka "The Butterfly Effect" - was kick-started by one Professor Lorenz, a meteorologist who serendipitously noticed his computer modelling of climate had fairly large problems and eventually concluded that there were too many variables for it to ever work. At least, until we can actually construct a solar system to test the models against.
