Did you know? I have never been to Nebraska, Iowa, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa; nor have I been to New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, or Nunavut; nor to any countries but the USA (duh), Canada (duh), the Bahamas, and the Netherlands Antilles (St. Maarten, Dutch side). I've not even been to Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana (the last 3 even though I live in North Carolina!) Other than that, I've been everywhere, man...
Lest you think I have any political correctness in me at all, my favorite sports teams are the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Braves (and UNC Tarheels). I also like the Kansas City Chiefs to a degree, and the Chicago Blackhawks are ok with me due to their storied history. We all need to be less PC...
...And I am a true Confederate and proud Southerner. Even though I'm half-Northern. No twang, no redneck, no saying y'all (it's you all lol). But the real Flag, the Southern Cross, flies at my house, and I say this proudly. Our colors don't run, either. The South shall rise again. When it does, we'll be that much knowledgeable from the activities at BOINC.
Also, I'm 1/4 Hungarian, 1/16 or so Cherokee Indian, probably some German, and British totally... lol...
|Your opinions about NFS@Home|
|We need to know everything about our universe. And all knowledge is good knowledge...|
And mathematics is the quantified knowledge we have about the universe, reduced to writing. The more we know of that, the more we can learn about everything else. Sounds good to me. When used in computing to advance the goals of wisdom, math & natural science work very well to help us find pulsars, gravity waves, etc...
Beyond stellar objects, I like contributing to AI, medical research, and other astronomical projects. We need to know about asteroids- lest one hit us and we have nobody left to accrue knowledge... I believe in saving Earth from a nasty boulder strike... :p
