I've generally been more partial to the idea that Oswald, if he didn't act alone, was an agent of the Soviet Union. He did have a history of consorting with communists, including  defecting for a while to live within the USSR from 1959 to 1962. And Kennedy had proven again and again that he would not play second fiddle to the Soviets.

If that is the case (and it is a big if), then it is possible that Jack Ruby was his handler and shot him out of fear that Oswald would break and spill the beans.

But that is just speculation on my part.  :notsure:

Why does noone buy into the CIA conspiracy?

...So...If nobody buys into the CIA conspiracy...Can we finally drop it? What else is there to talk about?  :unsure:

No. I didn't buy in to the theory I mentioned but we still had to talk about that one too.

Haven’t had a day off in nine days and the next one wasn’t until Monday but I just got a text from a coworker asking for my shift tonight. Normally I don’t give away Friday nights but I’ll make an exception this time. I’m going to nap so hard today.

So, to be blunt about it, any atheist obstetrician who refuses to treat a Catholic woman having potentially fstal difficulties with her seventh oregnancy is safe on moral grounds? Though I would hope the doctor would work to save the innocent child.

The whole idea is as morally and ethically repugnant as those who conceived of it.

Coincidentally, I checked out a book at the library today.    It is titled; Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  I think that she has some first hand authority to address this subject.  Most of you know who she is and you may admire her for having a mind of her own and the enormous fortitude that caused her to fight back.   


Off topic.....I got two books today. The other one is titled: Alt-America. The rise of the radical right in the age of trump.

Be interesting to plot how many books are written, on the president and the effects of his policies, in the first year of all presidencies. Betcha Trump would be the winner!

For the science bit: the sudden cooling and hardening of the glass from the outside causes  stresses inside, things like glass shrink as they cool, but the inside can't. That sudden cooling toughens the glass, so withstanding hammer blows, but the tail is still fragile. So if the tail's tough skin is broken those stresses relax in a wave front through the drop.

Pretty sure the shattering effect of a toughened glass car windcreen is the same. A centre punch breaking the skin anywhere causes the whole thing to shatter.
