    While I recognize you asked for expert opinions, I won't let that stop me from offering one (hey you know what they say about opinions!) I have a Leopold Mark IV, a Nikon Monarch, Trijicon gear....but for a purely wonderful piece of glass (there must be a way to mount one to a picatinny rail), consider looking at Swarovski. My first experience with Swarovski glass was using a pair of Swarovski binoculars, which, and I know it can be hard to believe, are absurdly more clear and detailed than any binoculars I'd ever used before. And they bring in more light somehow, so at dusk, you can see for an extra 10-20 minutes when you'd set down any other set of binoculars. After that, I tried a Swarovski scope, and it's the same deal. They're just so clear it's hard to explain. Now in terms of night-optics, having played a bit with those, the problem I have (and people here with more experience are probably better to chime in) is unless you're ready to plunk down SERIOUS (think $5k+ coinage) for truly professional grade gear, the more budget stuff (and even now we're still talking $1k-$3k) is hit or miss depending on conditions. Electronic night-gear and shooting out to the distance you want, at night....i'm not even sure where one would start that would be highly effective. Man I'd love to plink with an LMT sometime. Congrats on the purchase!

    http://www.smarterthanthat.com/astronomy/top-10-ways-to-know-the-earth-is-not-flat/ Top 10 ways to KNOW the Earth is not flat- (1) The MoonNow that humanity knows quite positively that the Moon is not a piece of cheese or a playful god, the phenomena that accompany it (from its monthly cycles to lunar eclipses) are well-explained. It was quite a mystery to the ancient Greeks, though, and in their quest for knowledge, they came up with a few insightful observations that helped humanity figure out the shape of our planet. Aristotle (who made quite a lot of observations about the spherical nature of the Earth) noticed that during lunar eclipses (when the Earth’s orbit places it directly between the Sun and the Moon, creating a shadow in the process), the shadow on the Moon’s surface is round. This shadow is the Earth’s, and it’s a great clue on the spherical shape of the Earth. Since the earth is rotating (see the “Foucault Pendulum” experiment for a definite proof, if you are doubtful), the consistent oval-shadow it produces in each and every lunar eclipse proves that the earth is not only round but spherical – absolutely, utterly, beyond a shadow of a doubt not flat. Refer to the following image from Wikipedia for more details on what happens during a lunar eclipse:

    RIP Jo Cox. I surely hope your senseless murder was purely the result of a deranged individual with no outside influence. In other news, markets are loving the new polling showing Remain revival.

    Yes, It would be easy to use some simple tricks to avoid a trump nomination. even if there is a first ballot bound rule.(which in reality can't be enforced). Most of the early state's that Trump won did not result in Trump people getting picked as delegate. In louisiana, Trump won the Primary. All the delegates went to Cruz people. During the first ballot, those people could find themselves in a bathroom line or concession stand line... the entire state. Only to show back up for a second ballot unbound. To win the nomination requires a number of delegates, not a percentage.

    There is a direct correlation between TV time(both bought and freely given) and polling. Rand's polling percentages followed his TV mentions down to nothing.

    I haven't posted in a long time, but felt I had to share this one (which many have likely already seen). Having been on this site since 2007, I've heard a lot of crazy conspiracies, false flags, rumors etc. I don't believe 99% of it, as I believe the simplest answer is usually the correct answer. And I admit I have a Brexit bias. I feel bad the poor gal isn't even cold yet, but when I read this and what happened, wow, could this be an actual false flag?? It really, really felt that way right off the bat to me. In fact, look at the stock market today. If this event could marginally change the Brexit/Remain balance by scaring poor people into solidarity with Remain, Remain is bullish for the market. Today, it felt like after this event was digested, people are now placing bets it will shame people into Remain votes, which is why the market has turned around.

    well, being that their high level conference call got leaked to the press, it would be a good bet that someone within his campaign has been rubbed the wrong way. Probably after he heard trump describe his staff as stupid on that very conference call.

    ive taken so much turmeric over the last couple months i coulda choked on it... everybody said you have to take 2 tbsp daily which doesnt seem possible. the best I could was 2 teaspoons... either way ill check with my chemo dr on what she thinks... and since shes Indian at least she should be familiar with the spice.

    Oh I understand that totally but once treatments start you have to look at it another way.... Theres no doubt that denying sugar to the cancer (and animal protein) stops the cancerous growth in its tracks.. But when time for chemo comes you have to realize that chemo attacks fast growing cells.. therefore slowing down the growth of the cancer seems to be counter-productive.

    nah I blew ketosis out the window the other day when I had swedish crepes and 2 large orange juices at IHOP. Sometimes I feel like apollo 13.. last week or so i was feeling REALLY crappy early in the day.. and when you have cancer its easy to say to yourself (the cancer) but then it turns out that youre dehydrated and your calcium levels are high and when thats corrected suddenly you feel much better... im not looking to stay in ketosis anymore...it was just something I felt was the most prudent thing to do while I had to wait around for everything else. and i will have to say something about orange juice.. IHOP uses Florida's Natural and Perkins uses Minute Maid.. When I drank 2 large Floridas Natural there was no ill effets.. but when I had 1.5 glasses of Minute Maid... it didnt take long for the sugar to put me into an insulin-like coma.. Floridas Natural claims to be freshly squeezed OJ and nothing else and although I never really believed that 100% I can definitely say its a completely better food product and must not contain those "flavor packs" that all the other OJ brands use which is basically just sugar and artificial color to make the OJ look like OJ (its never on the ingredient label because its considered a 'process' and not an 'ingredient".. Normally I get locally freshly squeezed raw OJ for $5/quart.. but they dont do it year round) well this message seems to be getting quite long but just for future reference I dont think Ill be arguing too much about this kind of stuff.. if I do it can only happen after I learn to properly disconnect emotion and stress from the conversation... stress was definitely a trigger for the cancer and while I dont blame our arguments this is just something I need to learn to do for myself for all discussions.. especially political ones...

    Um, right now im going to be concerned with calories... so fat.. some protein would always be good... right now im totally disgusted when i see advertisements for hamburgers probably as a result of been on that pretty much vegan diet.. it seems my bp and pulse is coming down pretty quickly.. i had to cut my meds in half starting last night... so im sure it had to be from the extreme diet... right now im mostly eating carbs. but i expect to start having some milkshakes soon.. maybe ill have one today

    I did an extreme vegan diet to get into ketosis.. that way I could deny both sugar and animal protein to the cancer. very rough diet... after a certain point something had to give and i let myself have some fruit.. during the diet i would let myself have some small pieces of fish.. real small like 2.50 oz... to be honest after a while certain meats start grossing you out at time... also avoid poultry and egg protein as in some studies that type of protein can promote tumor growth... treatment starts in 2 weeks for me and right now im getting to the point where I need to stretch my stomach so I can eat more food... maybe 2 days before or so ill start drinking some crap food like slurpees, milk shakes... at least by the time treatment starts the priority will be to maintain body weight and they quality of the food not as important.. so cream sauces or whatever... im having some of that onmy food right now but to be honest because my system is so cleaned out from eating mostly vegetables, it seems i can only tolerate so much crap food. im going to get some liquid vitamins/minerals tomorrow... i dont normally get synthetic stuff but in this case itll do me good i think
