@edgarblythe,
they have a place called "The Autonomous University of Madrid"??
Talk about self -starters.

Ill bet this will lead to a scientific dust up for several years.

I remember the hot streams in those mexican gypsum caves were about 2.5 pH and yet there were little reddish fish with long fins that seemed to have evolved so as to be able to keep thir positions in the hot acidic waters.

Id propose they do a stat model an compile the sites on earth wherein xtremophiles DO exist and compare their environments to this place.

Ive been to the Danakil a bout three times looking at sulfide metal deposits ( These are much easier to smelt compared to silicate ores).It stinks as bad as youd expect.

Will Rogers: All I know is what I read on the computer.

But I value the real scientists, such as yourself and wanted to get your take on it.

@edgarblythe,
I remember when I came back from the Afar last time, I had sucked up so much Sulfur fumes I was doing painful coughing for a month and had a productive cough for several months after. I turned down any further assignments from the client syndicate because of "Im just a big chicken at heart". Screw that Sagittarians are natural travelers, that doesnt include becoming a pilot of a bakka bomb.

The trees in my yard try to block other tree access to sun and growing space.

Yep. There was a tree for instance that spread its leaves directly over each limb of the fig tree, fanned and almost touching. I cut that tree down.

You're a mean son of a gun. Didn't know you had that much 'hate' in your being.

It had grown there like an unwanted weed for a long time.

@edgarblythe,
You are kinder than I ever could be. I use chemicals on those "things." However, where some brown grass used to be, I covered it with cement so my wife has a parking place in the front of the house.

@cicerone imposter,
I live next door to the water company. Any chemicals were I to use them might seep into the groundwater I drink. So I let lots of stuff grow wild.

@edgarblythe,
They have all wells there at the water company?? Usually, the water treatment facilities are only located nar the sources if they were streams or a river.
Most ground water systems are spread out so theres no xtreme "drawdown" on the water bearing formation (an aquifer), that would be a poor design if it were so.

@farmerman,
There is a pump next door and they have more facilities across the neighborhood someplace. There are two water tanks next door and an emergency generator.
