    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      I went to my Aunt's house after school growing up. Every day , baloney, Wonder bread, Miracle Whip.  I was a kid who lived for Lent because there was at least one day a week of reprieve.

      I got Catholic guilted and heard all about starving children who would welcome the food and I gagged it down but vowed none of those things would pass my lips once I had control of that decision.

      •  Well how's this: my mother never gave us baloney (3+ / 0-)

        because she was a health freak and we never had any processed meat other than 100% kosher hot dogs, or Hebrew National salami.

        I envied baloney-eating kids.  I envied kids who had white bread.  We never had white bread, only seed-laden health food brown bread.  Our sandwiches never looked like other kids' sandwiches.

        My dream was to have a sandwich on wonder bread.  Which my mother never bought.

        Here in the town where we live, there used to be a wonder bread factory.  I'd drive by it on the way to take our son to day care when he was a toddler and preschooler.  It smelled like doughnuts.  It smelled like sugar sweetness.  He knew where we were on the trip because that smell permeated the air for far around the factory.  But that smell told me what my mother, of course, knew long ago.  

        That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

          My Aunt was coming from a place of love and wanting to provide an "all American snack" .

          Really I wasn't as awful a child as it might seem, but I'd also cringe when walking down the street to my house and smelling West Indian stuff like curry that was foreign to my suburban neighborhood. "Couldn't we just have Hamburger Helper like everyone else!"

          Grass is always greener...
