A System of a Downer Syndrome?
Conjecture by Pat Darnell and Pa Rody
According to a "one-size-fits-all" twenty question web page estima-guess survey on my age now and how long I should last .... [Source Lost] ...
I have about 13,000 days left; or --
35.6 more years to walk the Earth -- or, rather
104,000 hours left to sleep, and,
208,000 hours left-over to be awake on Earth ... That's sobering! ](;.,) 'waaaaah ..'
That's 8,667 days awake, give or take. GULP !
I think I will get back to this finite time-left-to-live downer buzz-kill puzzle later ...
BOK, that means Body Of Knowledge. I had a professor once tell me that the "ultimate PROJECT would eventually include everyone and their BOK on the planet." How does your BOK stand up? Let's put current events to the scrutiny of our collective knowledge bases, okay?

Home sales rise to highest level in 2.5 years
Only a 7-month supply of homes on market; bidding wars are erupting [SOURCE]

WASHINGTON - Home sales surged for the second month in a row in October, climbing to the highest level in 2 1/2 years as first-time buyers rushed to take advantage of an expiring tax credit.
Home sales nationwide are now up nearly 36 percent from their bottom in January, data Monday showed, though they are still 16 percent below the peak in autumn 2005. At the current sales pace, there is only a 7-month supply of homes on the market and in some areas there are bidding wars.
CO2 levels keep rising as key climate talks loom
Scientist: ‘Coin-flip odds for serious outcomes for our planet’ [SOURCE]
"For the past million years we've never seen 390. You have to wonder what that's going to do," said physicist John Barnes, the observatory director.
Carbon dioxide concentrations this fall are hovering at around 385 parts per million, on their way to a near-certain record high above 390 in the first half of next year, at the annual peak.
Far from this mid-Pacific government observatory, negotiators from 192 nations gather in wintry Copenhagen, Denmark, next month to try to agree on steps to head off the worst of the climate disruptions researchers say will result if concentrations hit around 450 parts per million — in 30 years at the current rate. Some say the world has already passed a danger point, at 350 ppm, and must roll back. *[ROLL~BACK LIKE AT WAL-MARTS ???]*

No one has a personal expansive Body Of Knowledge available to handle all of these issues by one's self: -- like an MD, Climate Specialist, Enviromental Scientist, Economist, and Editor -- all wrapped into ONE ???? NOT LIKELY !!
Each specialty attracts persons from that field. That is the beauty of a Project Body Of Knowledge ... right? That synergy thing that Bucky Fuller delineated, that the total is greater than the sum of the parts. Although we here at MooPig Enterprises like to think we can handle any information that explodes onto our screens, it is a system of a downer. It is a syndrome soon to be described by specialists involved in Brain Industries... hey man you got BOK NOD Syndrome, or something like that.
------------------------ HEY !!
Wait just a Gall Darn Minute, Matthew; did I just say no one can command a personal body of knowledge greater than the sum of the parts of the project?? That is not absolutely true .. WHAT ABOUT :: YIKES !! How soon we forget -- Oh NO --- "ONO" it happened once, it can happen again.
TAKE ME NOW, JESUS !!!!
