For new arrivals: The Global Moderator here, Surly1, also manages the Doomstead Diner Facebook Page.  Be sure and check it out for interesting and thought provoking articles. Surly1 is a wordsmith with a vocabulary and such skill at explaining complex subjects in succinct and accurate terms that just reading his comments can save you hours of reading. I highly recommend this Occupy Veteran's prose and linked stories.

Surly1 is a man of peace, but as his handle implies, don't take lightly his views or opinions. He has a lifetime of experience at seriously thinking about what ails Homo Sap and how to go about, if such a thing is possible at this late date, improving the lot of mankind.


Surly1's message to the Facebook Page Readers:
Quote
"Welcome to the Doomstead Diner, a hub for discussion and information pertaining to the ongoing Economic Collapse of the Industrial Economy." plus other copy from here. I really try to mirror the tone and tenor of this place and its denizens.

How Does Digital Camera Resolution Compare to the Human Eye?

The resolution of the human eye is estimated to be about 575 megapixels, while the highest digital camera resolution is only about 20 megapixels. Image resolution is generally measured in pixels, or the number of dots it contains, with one million pixels to a megapixel. Therefore, the human eye can theoretically see images with more than 28 times more clarity than the highest-quality digital camera. Scientists believe that human eyes are able to see more pixels simply because there are two eyes to intake more pixels for the brain to process. Also, eyes can quickly move around to view more pixels and send the image signals to the brain.

More about the human eye:

The human eye is made up of more than two million parts that work together. The eyes also are the most active muscle in the body.

On average, the human eye takes in more than 36,000 images every hour.

When there is a lack of light, the eye starts to see images as monochromatic and less detailed in the center. To overcome this, astronomy photographers often look at stars just off-center, to view them more clearly.




Rods see monochromatically and at an angle better than directly. These are used at night or in low light condisitons

I have been remiss in my duties and beg your forgiveness! 


Welcome to new member Fink!
 
He is a bastion of integrity and a no holds barred debater against injustice and inequality.   


Fink likes my use of animated emoticons. For him and for those who share his interest in livening up and or accentuating a discussion  ;), I will prepare a mini-course on how I do it and will post it today. Stay tuned.

We need all the so-called "crazies" we can get to question AND laugh at the sick mores of a predatory pig oligarchy destroying the planet for nihilistic profit.

Castigat ridendo mores One corrects customs by laughing at them   


For those who judge Crazy Old Loon, all I can say is  damnant quodnon intelligunt They condemn what they do not understand



The world needs more people like

fallaces sunt rerum species   The appearances of things are deceptive.

Welcome KathleenBuchanan!   ;D
  Feel free to post on any subject you wish. Stimulating discussion is encouraged. Our job is to extract Homo sapiens from the miasma of stupidity and tyranny that we have been visited with by allowing our psychopathic predator humans to run ragged over the planet and its resources.
