  1. Very rarely. But it could happen and probably has. Come out to 12 mi NNw of Rich Hill sometime and throw rocks around at night. About every other one will spark in the darkness if thrown at the plethora of boulders about . Never say never
  2. Space rock impacts basalt, tourmaline, granite, quartz, quartzite, iron pyrite, chert, flint, marcasite, spessartine garnet, obsidian, gneiss. ( all sparkable minerals), and ignites dry grass...
  3. what about some general indicators- slickenside( was it in bedrock or near?) or evidence of glacial action( above bedrock in till)?
  4. Ahem, if one entangles one's undergarments, sufficiently, one would be inclined to see things in an odd way... ahem
  5. Ditto, but I just use a PC
  6. When a regulator can chuckle at the law and let you go, well, that just gives me hope in 'Merica again.
  7. I think w/ calcite, crosssections will be squarish/rhombic, ,,quartz is hexagonal. Barite is bladed. COuld be all (and more) minerals in the pics.mineral museum pic-barite calcite quartz ....................... TEst at your peril w/ vinegar and a steel blade, some sample areas that you don't care about damaging. Barite is very weak mineral and should be easily scratched or broken. Vinegar w/ react w/ calcite, but not quartz which is also harder than steel( it won't scratch). Wait!, I think I also see, could it be........... it is baublite!!!!!!!!!!!!! It even looks shinylicious
  8. SO, how did it cut? Tough or like butter? Looks like it took a good polish. Performed a scratch or streak test?
  9. The charts are going sideways fast The jump in prices was rough and will take some time to settleout- weavin a tale, pay no mind
  10. Discount has 26 tires available - Load range E1-  LT265 /70 R17 starting at less than  $100 and up to $250+ depending on how plain or rugged you want it:kevlar/ tread compound,pattern, bead, sidewall, belting technology. Most selection seem to be running a promotion for $70 prepaid VIsa card givewaway and also $30 for using your their store card( which , I'm sure, they will sign you up for on the spot or even online). YOu can do quite a bit more when aired down to a tire sidewall height of 75% of full inflation height. To find that specific pressure, it's advised to perform the test in the comfort of a flat driveway. I believe you get almost twice the floatation in actual area of the tire footprint. Encounter soft sand/silt on a regular basis,it should be SOP to air down. Of course, use of the brake pedal is a nono, as is use of the skinny pedal( much), or you risk popping a bead, only to then have to practice you trucker's hitch tieing skills around the flat , after having squirted " just enough"(rattlecan solvent of choice) into the the carcass to be followed with a blowtorch light from same. Or you could throw a match at it -from a distance- to light the solvent in the flat. I'm a longtime COstco member but get my tires, every time, from Discount. IMO, COstco tires're overpriced and limited in selection. $ no object Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar . I had a set of them (before theKevlar), that lasted on the front( never rotated) of my truck for 75000 miles. I kept them that long by benefit of a tread depth /air pressure gauges so as to document the wear over time and increase/decrease pressures to even out wear across the face of the tread- the factory guidance was/is meaningless.
  11. So much for Monday pullbacks, Jeez( I watchAg-which roughly correlates to Au)... I guess the bull is running (annualized) 1 month + 25% 300% 3 month +37% 148% 6 month +47% 94% 10 year +87% 8.7%
  12. DAng! Botswana's bangin' .......another report
  13. Well, the typical Monday pullback never arrived ... THe only chart that doesn't show appreciation is the 5 year( for both Au and Ag) . Some would say, "the world is going full retard". Emotion seems to be at the helm. http://www.apmex.com/spotprices/silver-prices http://www.apmex.com/spotprices/gold-price WOulda, coulda, shoulda. INdependence Day is upon us. I still wouldn't be surprised by a pullback next week. WHere did I here that before?
