re: NASA In Houston - Shaun176
I went about 10 years ago. There were some shows and exhibits. The tour was cool. They take you to mission control from the 60s and 70s. I can't remember how long the tour takes. For me, it was one of those places that I am glad I visited, but I don't think I'll go again. ...

re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Shaun176
Shenandoah and Woodlawn Elem., both in the proposed St. George area already score as high as schools in Zachary, Central, Livingston. Drake has expanded magnet seats so every applicant that qualified, got in this year. It is flawed logic to say that because schools in N BR score low, the SE s...

re: Mexico City - Day of the Dead - Shaun176
Mexico City is probably more safe than New Orleans for tourists. Day of the Dead used to only be a big deal in some of the small towns in Michoacan State. Now they are trying to make it a thing that attracts tourists to Mexico City. Mexico City is a good art city. Precolumbian art, colonial a...

Oaxaca is about 6 hours drive from Mexico city. You may want to visit Puebla. It is a colonial city, site of the Cinco de Mayo battle, and its suburb Cholula has been continually inhabited for about 3000 years. Puebla is about an hour and 45 minutes from Mexico City....

re: Can the USA go into more and more debt forever? - Shaun176
One of the problems is the amount of debt held by US Citizens. A default would be like the great depression in the 30s. The government can also cover debt by printing money, kind of. We really just need to slow the increase in debt. If we can get out of some of these wars and get the world to...
