Site: The Chiefio - E.M. Smith

Slant: Sceptic

Active: yes


Presently my major muses are the behaviour of the stock markets, the mass hysteria that is the Global Warming panic, and metrology – or how we measure things both present and past. Astrophysics and Stonehenge sneak in from time to time as well; and they are both related to each other and to the earlier topics. (Stonehenge is a giant stellar / planetary observatory for measuring time and space, while the cycle of sunspots has an eerie correlation with stock market cycles). I’m also interested in food related things, good beers and fine Scotch, but who isn’t ;-) And in good Eagle Scout fashion, I have an interest in preparedness, but it’s a minor sidebar.
