I normally park in that spot.

Is it fixable or will you have to replace stuff?

My car has lived outside for six years and hasn't turned into a pumpkin. Yours will be ok. :D

No, you don't get how friggin hot it is where Arkayn lives. Its another order of magnitude worse in the lower desert. Without a sunshade, his car will get so hot merely grabbing the metal door handle to open the car can cause burns. The plastic interior will crack in less than a year of unprotected parking. He really really needs that carport.

Of course I have to wait and see if I get a response from my Canadian landlord.

According to the charts my idea body weight is about 170lbs and at that weight I look emaciated and loose muscular strength.

For my ideal body weight, I would literally have to lose every single gram of adipose in my body, and then some muscle.

Exceptions will always exist to these sorts of over generalizations. They work across large groups but fail for some individuals. So stop being concerned about it beyond your personal lucky ectomorph self.

Terra is not the first orbiting Earth viewing satellite by a long shot. Think Corona... :P

Also, the ASTER page doesn't say anything about the change in policy. Here's the actual news story: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/user_resources/ ... arge_promo

That is actually really big news. I have colleagues overseas that will benefit greatly from this.

Right and I got it the first few times. Yet you persisted, so I figured you were fishing for a personalized answer.

I tryed an experiment on myself back when I was really doing the fitness thing and tryed dropping down to my "ideal" weight. When I started getting close I began to see a marked decrease in strength, like having to go down in the weights I was lifting after 3 years of a slow steady increase. I picked up my intake, gained back the 20lbs I dropped and went back to my previous strength.
The charts say I should weigh 170, my body tells me 190 is much better.
