    Re: Too bad I wasn't an executive with AIG

    What you're doing is like trying to separate the Luftwaffe who flew FW-190s from the SS who ran the concentration camps. There were lots of good Germans in that mess, but if they wore the uniform,...

    Re: Too bad I wasn't an executive with AIG

    Re: Best way to kill everything growing?

    If you're not going to build or plant on it, you might not want to tear out everything. Just keep it trimmed low and keep the current vegetation in place to prevent erosion.

    Of course if AIG paid me a "retainer fee" as generous as they paid those execs, I might change my mind! :D

    No matter how you slice it, it's still AIG.

    If you refuse to buy Chicken McNuggets because the chickens are treated inhumanely, would you still buy a Big Mac? Different farms, right?

    Re: Too bad I wasn't an executive with AIG

    Not bad compensation for a group of people who totally screwed up.

    My auto insurance is with AIG, but I'm switching to a different carrier because of this.

    Re: Hawaii Superferry - Chapter 9

    An exec order has the force of law. And 9066 was unconstitutional. That's well beyond dubious. Unless you don't mind being rounded up for being of a particular racial extraction, having everything...

    Re: Converting old negatives to digital

    True.

    But if there's a LOT to scan, it might be worth the price. And the Coolscan can probably be sold afterward to recoup some of the cost.

    Flatbed scanners don't have the dynamic range and sensitivity required to get detail from the denser portions of negatives and transparencies.

    The difference between a refinery, quarry, landfill and a ship is that you can easily shut down the ship and not leave a permanent scar on the environment. You can't do that with the other three.
