Now… leave your answer in the comments before you peek at the answer below.

Daily Spark: It is a free country. Mostly. You have the right to be stupid. Should you prefer not to be stupid you still have the right to be stupid. Until the left takes the right or only the right is left. Then stupidity will be regulated and you will have no choice but to be stupid.

    Glaciers receding? (Temporarily, I know you’re in Vermont.)

    I guessed something close but diddnt quite get the answer. neat little puzzle. I like the mystery posts.

    As the pond water ripples it leaves ridges at the various water levels as it evaporates in the heat of summer.

    Lake Powell’s got BIG versions of those…

    It’s funny (speaking of the right to be stupid.) In Utah all you have to do is wonder out loud why God would give Utah more rain, if Utah just wastes the rain it’s got on watering its lawns… and you’re automatically on the far left. No joke. That’s a right of stupidity if ever there was one.

    Regarding your spark: the left and the right are both stupid. They both get some things right, but everything that’s left they get wrong.
