Default Re: Another Geologist

It seems to be a quite common job for TE'ers (I've met at least 3 or 4 others on TE web pages). I didn't think we were so numerous...

Didn't you...?
OK...You were wrong...So what ?
There is a whole whopping of 0.00014% of you, the geologists, on TE !
Getting crowded, in here ...

regards, LB.

PS: Did you ever find any frozen carcass of a mammoth in the ground...???

You seem to be a quite normal, working class person...
When you die, sometime this or the next year, make sure to do it when there is a season for flowers...Your family can save few bucks on the occasion...

Get a life, buddy...
Do something useful...Register yourself in the unemployment office or somethn'

Greetings and salutations

Waow! 0.00014% is probably enormous if you look to the amount of geologist compared to the world population (I'll let you find the statistics and make the calculation)...

Regards, g.

PS: No Mammoth carcass in my rocks (they're too old for mammoths), but quite a lot of petrified geologists with a TE logo stuck on their camera bags...
:o)

Default Re: HI!

Hi George!

I am so happy you responded,

I invite you to come here to my country, you will never get bored, it is a third world country,
we have to work a lot here,
no happy weekends full of fancy trips with lots of leisure time,

I hope some day we could have, but so far
it is the best we can do,

I shoot while I work mainly, during trips,

But be careful! do not misread me, I respect your way of life and I kindly ask you to understand others lives as well, even though they might come from remote poor places,

and I am not talking about money, but development,
be well my dear,

and you seem to be a highly respectable person out of the mold,
A humble, normal, mediocre, average person salutes you from the distance.

K.
Pd.:I already forwarded the tip of the flowers to my family members. I really appreciated that.

One can only be sure in a hundred years from now ;-).
It's a small drop in a big bucket, but a lot of drops...

Doesn't even have to help at current, it just shows a different way and gets people to think! Using solar panels in Angola for example with Medecins Sans Frontieres. No noise and smell from a generator. The village was amazed by this magic energy! And we even didn't get stoned by them for using magic ;-)

In the Brazilian Amazon, a lot of rural people did not have any alternatives. No access to fuel / spare parts etc for a generator. Everyone was baffled by the light at night from a simple glass plate on the roof.
Then again, give it a few years and there will not be any Amazon anymore - and with the trees they made the nice poles for the grid-based electricity.... ;-)

Greetz, Dennis

Default Re: Mathematics Professor

I am a professor of mathematics--always have been, always will be, though I know my single-career life is the exception nowadays. Between research and teaching, there's no job I'd rather have, including photographer. In research, there is always something new to take on, if I get tired of what I'm doing.
