My 4,566,300,000 Year Old Ring

I agree.
What I think it was was an acid bath, rinse, and maybe a coat of clear enamel or something to make it smoother? That's just a guess based on a minimal knowledge of metallurgy. Acid is often used to bring out patterns in cut meteorites and patterned steel.

I wish there had been an explanation as to why the pattern was invisible on the polished ring until immersed in the black liquid and coated by the brush.

Yeah, I don't know anything about them and don't really care. But I am interested in the right way to pass judgement if you can elaborate for me.

Thanks in advance.

A snippet of the whole is no way to pass judgement.

The Covington kid and Jussie Smollett is are prime examples.

That wasn't clear in your original response. If your intention was to rope in the good cops because you see the odds stacked against them and there is little hope for them, what does that say about the power you give to the bad cops?

It's been said this is the place where all your dreams can come true. Whether it's being a cop, fireman, soldier, father, and even a natural born killer or worse yet, Donald Trump. *snort*

Be careful what you dream and make it come true. Watch more Pixar.

OH! And eat more cake. It's not a lie. I saw it myself. Life is short.

Sadly, it's because these "good cops" all but never police their criminal brothers in blue, and the excessively few who have stood up are almost always threatened until they are run out of law enforcement.

I can live with that but, you were probably not their target demographic. You know.. maybe Geico or the The Most Interesting Man in the World is more your taste?

Why? Because if someone wants to make up a fake scenario to sell me on something, I insist it be more interesting. ;-)

Two studies have found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.

This means that even non-abusing good cops have (on average) a group of friends and coworkers comprised of 40%+ abusers in the home. 2 out of every 5. These are friends and coworkers that they would take a bullet for and defend with perjury if need be. These are the good cops.

But you know, I don't blame them? The role itself is insane. Why should humanity have the right to put all of our collective violent, physical, criminal, and tragic life events onto the shoulders of one small group of people? It's not sustainable. And it shows in the lives of those who attempt to assume that role.

Well, I guess we could always blame them for being cops. I mean, there are many other, much more effective ways to improve a culture and impact positive change. If that was their motivation for becoming a cop. That would be a positive take-away: Come up with alternate work programs to help cops stop being cops.

That's what made me suspicious in the first place, she seemingly slipped before her weight was on it.

I guess frozen in place makes sense for the rocks.

I half expect to see the longer version next week where they use their ADT panic button for help, life alert style.

Why? Because if someone wants to make up a fake scenario to sell me on something, I insist it be more interesting. ;-)

If the ice is just thick enough it will keep the gravel in place. Looks like her foot slipped before she even had her full weight on it. It also looked like driver slipped a bit too.

Opener: Someone could do that easily depending on the circumstances. Just make up a logical scenario on your own. (i'm not going to do the work for you.)

Some people have a sense of humor. Maybe they just shared it with someone and they shared it with someone and so on.

Good question about the ADT logo. Wouldn't doubt they (ADT) picked up the video and added it themselves. Doesn't affect me one way or the other.

It can be as suspicious as you can make it. But why?

If it's everything you say, so what?
