OK, I verified this on several sites. I’m going to collect the links and post them in a minute, but I want to get this out there ASAP, especially for @scatman.

Today’s a big day for SAR groups across the U.S. (read on).

Elon Musk is looking for support for his latest idea - he’s announced that he will donate Starlink access and equipment to all U.S. SAR groups if the American public shows enough support. This also applies to Canada, BTW. (Yes, it sounds a bit narcissistic, but you know how Musk is at marketing things and loves being adored.)

He asks that you go outside today and look to the sky, giving the Vulcan salute for 5 minutes so a Starlink satellite can take photos as it goes over (5 minutes being the rotational distances between the satellites). Each satellite has face-recognition software, as well as geo-location s/w and can count the number of faces it sees, as well as the Vulcan salutes, making it able to discriminate between people just looking up and genuine supporters.

I personally think it’s a great cause and will be out there. Let’s make this happen! (Doubtful the BCP salute would work, but you could do that with the other hand just in case.) Have a friend take your photo and we'll send them to Musk as a thank you. I think Musk would be especially impressed if @scatman were to do this!

You're not supposed to start sipping the Baileys until we crate the grizzlies. :D

I may be a fool, but I'm no April's Fool. :scatman:

Some shots of my 2 mile walk this morning through the concrete jungle know as The Avenues for Scot's go Wild. The neighbors didn't seem too impressed.

Lawmakers were astounded by my kiltlessness. I understand they are going to present a bill that would set all Utahans free on April 1st. I believe it is called S.B. @The Trout Whisperer 4122
