    There are plenty of repeats and various ways to watch (see here: http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-vietnam-war/watch/#clips). Episodes are presented chronologically. I missed the first one, but you don't (of course) need to watch these consecutively to follow it. There are many interviews from various people and perspectives. The first link I posted is just a tiny sample of the different points of view. There is plenty of original footage. They skillfully intersperse recreation with actual footage. A big focus is the detail of individual battles, including many satellite maps. If you like military history, then the show is definitely for you. There is however, a lot of other kinds of history: political, social, cultural, etc. The show, again, approaches the subject from many different angles. I think the show is very well done. It's different from other shows on the same subject because it's more in-depth (18 hours) and very, very thoughtful. I know people don't always like public television and its producers, but the quality is there. I don't like certain things about PBS and its creators, but it's not an either/or proposition. For example, I find the PBS animal show Nature second-to-one. The Vietnam War series follows this lead in that they let the audience actually reflect on what they're watching. This is opposed to other shows that hurry through the dialogue and speed through the footage. The narrator of the Vietnam series is very crisp and clear. The script he reads is outstanding. I am actually coming away with a different perspective. Ha ha; I guess I should be a salesman for this show, but that's how much I like it. Here is the website description of this Sunday night's episode:

    At the start of the video, he makes one small mistake. He referred to Targeted Advertising as "Demographics", which is now completely out of date. Its now called Psychographics, not Demographics, because the algorithms use very detailed data sources to determine a persons psychology in order to effectively manipulate the individual to buying a product or service or scam or whatever. Psychographics will examine things like Religious Preferences, Briggs Meyer Personality Tests (INTJ's and ENFP's, stuff like that), and EVERY possible source to maximize manipulation of purchase. Difference here is that Demographics target by age and gender and look at Groups, not Individuals based on Psychology. Just picking nits, but overall, he is right. Online Advertising is HYPE. The REAL danger here is when people start getting thrown in jail, interment camps, re-education centers, or whatever you want to call it for what those Psychographic Tests reveal instead of just letting them be normal ordinary good people. We arent there yet, but if you look at the strong reactions between Trump and Hittlary supporters, we are getting progressively closer every single day.

    Big problem here. SCAMS. There have been scams that have been running for years that target the elderly. If the IRS is now gonna resort to private debt collectors, how are the elderly, especially those with mental conditions such as Alzheimers supposed to tell the difference between an actual IRS debt collection and one of those fucking Indian scams that try to call my house nearly DAILY? The authorization of IRS using Debt Collectors just screwed over a shit load of gullible people by making it even harder to tell the difference between Legit and Scam. --- Yes, I do believe the IRS itself is a scam, and Taxation is Theft. However, it is very difficult even for the most enabled people to fight back against the IRS when they have the power of the US Govt behind them.

    Legislature goes through so many processes and handlers and writings and amending if you wanted to list the author of every little piece, you could have several people writing a single paragraph- changing this word or two here or there- it would be incredibly complex and difficult to credit everything. A bill may change just a few words in one paragraph of a single law or a few words here and there. "the word "The" in this paragraph has been brought to you by Bounty Towels!"

    40,000 reflects people who are registered to vote in more than one state. If you moved to a new state and registered to vote there and did not inform the state you moved from that you left you are probably listed as eligible to vote in both states. Does this mean you voted in both states? There is potentially that many fraudulent votes, but the likelyhood that 40,000 fraudulent votes were actually cast? "I love voting so much! Let's wait in line here and then drive a couple hours to another state so we can wait in line and vote there too! Can't we go, honey?"

    Korea isn't claiming any test- and they like to brag when they have one. The quake is smaller than any of their nuclear tests resulted in. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/09/23/north-korea-earthquake-not-from-weapons-test-report.html Possibilities? An actual earthquake. A failed hydrogen bomb test (a hydrogen bomb uses smaller synchronized explosions to rapidly compress the nuclear fuel to achieve their higher yield than a conventional nuclear weapon- perhaps the primary explosion occurred but not enough to achieve fusion). A collapse of ground in the space created by previous underground nuclear tests.

    When I owned my printing company I was audited. When an entity sends in an agent to do an audit they purposely send in someone that has no expertise in your particular business. This person then says you owe this exorbitant amount of tax. It is then up to you the business person to hire your own tax professional and research every particular issue and show the agent why your particular business is exempt from that particular tax. They send in a person that doesn't know the exemptions to inflate the tax owed. Another trick is they do a sample audit of a particular time period. There could be one time situations that happened in that period. Then they determine the tax in that period was x. Then they apply that to the entire time period leaving you with an overwhelming debt. Once again up to you to prove that you don't owe the tax.

    Still alive after a couple of weeks of eating canned meat. Found a water well with water in it. Water is only a little over 20 feet down the hole and about 12 feet deep. The well is encased in a 2' diameter cement prefabricated, stackable style column. I put a Harbor Freight shallow well pump with a check valve. After getting the pump primed I was able to get some water out. Problem is the pump reaches its maximum then won't pump any more water out. I can only pump about three feet of the water about 70 gallons from the well. I am heading back there tomorrow for a couple of months. I have a submersible pump and tank I am going to hook up. I know the well produces. The area I am in is purported to be in an 11year drought and the well still has water. After pumping out 3 feet, the well refills in about half a day. My new neighbor, a nice 70 year old guy that has a farm in PA says he has drilled many wells. He says the longer a well sits the less it produces. He says that if I pump out a substantial amount of water from the well repeatedly the veins that supply the water will once again open up and refill the well faster. Considering that 70 gallons is only 1/4 of the water in the well, there is more than enough for me to get water and probably more than enough for the house. This is obviously an old school well and not a 300 foot drilled well but it is water! I plan to put a 10" canister style cartridge filter after the tank, and another small canister filter at point of use. The small filter I use to use under sinks on the cold water side. That cartridge is rated at removing everything as small as .1 Micron. That is right not 10 micron but .1 micron. I figure at first I will run the well and let it produce onto the ground for a few days without running it dry before putting any cartridges into any of the filters. The house is very appealing from the outside and is big but needs lots of work! All the first floor floors and joists are rotted and need replaced. I tore up all the carpet and rolled it up and put it off to the side. The kitchen first had hardwood floors that got bad so somebody put a layer of OSB and tile over it and then when that went bad they put another layer of OSB and carpet over that. After pulling up the carpet, I had rotten OSB. The 6x6 beams the house sits on are also bad in places. I plan to support the carrying walls from the ground to the ceilings. I will pour footings and put in concrete block piers. I plan to snap lines and cut the wall studs higher up and replace the 6x6 beams with tripple 2x12 and attach a new 2x6 to the bottom of the wall studs. After laying plastic on the crawlspace I will then put 2x8 floor joist attached to the top of the new 2x12 beams thus raising the floor. The house has rough sawn lumber sheeting both on the interior and exterior of all studs even interior walls and is still very plumb. They have wood paneling on all interior walls on top of original "Beaver Board." The original ceilings were over 9 feet from the floor and were also rough sawn wood covered with Beaver Board. In most rooms someone dropped the ceilings and put in drywall. When they did that they ran wiring for outlets, HVAC in the ceilings and then blew in 12" of insulation between the Beaver Board and the new drywall dropped ceiling. All that is going to be removed. Even when I raise my first floor I will have tall ceilings. The house has approximately 1600 square feet on the first floor and has the ability to have over 1000 square feet upstairs. When it was built 1923 I think, they never had living space on second floor. There are no stairs to get up there. The first floor ceiling joists/second floor floor joists are not adequate to support living space and will also need to be replaced. A large decorative dormer sits across much of the front of the house. The height to the peak of the roof is more than 13 feet from the second floor floor joists. I will plan to put in floor joists and support...

    Is that in 1775 prices? Silver was about $1.30 around then so 4.6 million ounces or 143 metric tons! It is about $17 an ounce today. 23,000 ounces at 1800 prices-about three quarters of a tonne. Image didn't print figures. Giant cube is 1,000 tonnes. The lady is sitting on 100 tonnes so about 1.5 times that. Block next to guy is 10 tonnes- 15 of those. Cubes and spheres are one tonne.
