    Since I no longer utilize specific substances – and the instructors preferred we not show up drunk – I can, on the first subject only recall something called “state-learning.” Which I seem to recall had something to do with experiencing something in a highly stressful (adrenaline) situation becoming almost “reflexive.” [Alcohol being excepted of course – at present anyway].

    The second? Might be interesting if I had the time. Like you seem to indicate – rather than spending time on the third endeavor, the researchers could’ve spent some time in a library. Or enrolled in Geology 101.

    Apparently the researchers on the 50 years old “fracking” process never got together with either Al Gore or the folks in East Anglia. (Dear God I hope they don’t get together with the people working on the Beebe Birdkill.)

    As for the last – perhaps the Scots shouldn’t be so charitable to their underprivileged and begin purchasing lawnmowers. (This last may be obscure to some – but only because you’re not on the same forwarding list I am.)
