As long as Texas taxpayers are willing to pay for these ultrasounds, and they know that they are paying for it, it's their money.Read more... )

Oh come on, people! Surely memories aren't that short! The Moon hits perigee every 15-20 years (is on its closest orbital approach to Earth) and we haven't had devastating weather patterns, gigantic earthquakes, or mega-volcanoes during any of the previous perigees.

Most of us are old enough to have lived through at least one previous lunar perigee, and some (like me) have lived through 3 or 4 of them. I didn't pay a lot of attention because, yanno, I'm not a sailor and so it didn't really affect me and mine.

All this means is that the Moon looks bigger this month than it normally does - better photo ops! Get out those cameras! And it means higher high tides and lower low tides - an issue for sailors, but not so much for those of us in land-locked states. Lakes may rise slightly higher and fall slightly lower, but no big deal, really.

If we get earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, etc, it will be because they were already incipient, not that they were caused by the Moon's regular perigee.

I could find uses for these, especially when eating out. Of course, stamps with just a smiley or frowny face would work as well, or Vistaprint cards that can be left with tips.

Really, anything that signals approval or disapproval.

I'd probably need twice as many of the "like" stamps/cards/stickers because I like a whole lot more than I don't like.
