    Florida man runs for his life as neighbor chases him in tractor

    So, we have armchair jurists speculating about the culpability of the tractor driver, not unlike "pallet theorists" speculating about the purpose of "pallets in fields." Per Sherlock Holmes: "It is a capital mistake to theorize in advance of the facts." What do we know about the scene of...

    What is this?

    You have raised serious questions that merit the attention of TBN's "scientific" and "not-so scientific" communities. Economists talk about "that which is seen" and "that which is unseen." We have "that which is seen" -- these so-called "reinforcing trusses" -- items that have a "numeral 1...
