^Oh I meant to ask you. Why do you belittle Trump's tweets and not take them seriously? All of his tweets are being archived, even the ones that he deletes. Yes, I know he uses it to spread lies and misinformation but there are also important things that he lets slip every now and then.

How many folks here remember that before the internet, all we really had to research history was the Encyclopædia Britannica.

It was a series of books separated usually by letter. It's what you would use to study for tests in High School.

In 2020 the "T" volume is going to be a blast to read.

:rofl:

My grandmother had an entire set of them. The only crap part is that every decade or so you have to buy the whole entire set over again because there is new information in it. Those bad boys were expensive. I believe they stopped printing them in 2010. I could be wrong though.

I remember The Joy of Knowledge and The Tree of Knowledge, two encyclopaedia series that built up week by week. One (The Joy of Knowledge) was hardcover volumes on different subjects (The Earth, History, Natural Science, Astronomy etc) and the other, which I found better put together, gave you pages from each section each week, colour coded, which you placed in the appropriate section of the big binder, so that eventually it all built up into one large encyclopedia.

Needless to say, I never finished collecting either of them. But I do still have the twenty or so volumes I collected of The Joy of Knowledge. Good stuff.

Lol. Wonder if anyone in Trump's circle will throw themselves on a grenade.

I just want to caution everyone here that retaining an attorney should not be seen as a sign of guilt or complicity in any illegal or unethical action. It's the same as pleading the 5th. It's the same as not speaking to the police, even when you're 100% innocent.

There are enough real concerns without talking about Russia everyday. I'm much more focused on the healthcare bill. Until Muller publishes a report, we all should turn our attention to policy.
