You were just jealous because the only “sport” you had was baseball.  :buck2:

At least the sticks we play with are straight and not bent at the bottom.  :coolsmiley:  And in baseball there are no Penalty Boxes. We settle our differences with a good, old fashion brawl.

Not cool but very hot :

Watch a Raging Forest Fire Surround You in 360 Degrees

In the NIST setup, a waterproof camera sits in a liquid-filled bulb made of heat-resistant glass.

Because it takes time to set up this system, Hoehler can only use it when he knows he has two to three hours before a fire reaches his site. For example, because the blaze at the New Jersey Pine Barrens was a “prescribed burn” (deliberately set to help with forest management), the fire service was able to tip off NIST team members well before the fire started. This gave the researchers plenty of time to set up their equipment and bury the water tank.

Maybe they are laying low because they do not want human beings to come to their neighborhood.

Search only looked for radio signals and only among 1,300 stars in close proximity to Earth !
Even our own galaxy has billions of stars.

It is like searching for a cat in your garden and concluding that because you didn't see one that there are no animals on Earth.
