    People use algebra all the time and might not even realize it. For example, at the store, if you get 4 items for a dollar, how much does each one cost? 4x = 100; x = 100/4 = 25 cents each. Trivial example, but it is still algebra.

    A lot of math is logic and a way of approaching a problem and those skills apply in many different ways.

    If you used this method to just replenish one reservoir, consider that 1 acre foot is over 325,000 gallons. A decent sized reservoir can contain more than 50,000 acre feet, or 16.25 billion gallons. That would require 1.8 million tanker trucks.

    The cost of transporting the water across the country would probably be more than the water is worth. And it would take a lot of water to make a dent. An inch of rain over an acre is about 27,000 gallons, or about 3 tanker trucks full of water. To replace an inch of rain, you’d need 3 tanker trucks per acre for every acre in the entire state of CA, or about 300,000,000 tanker trucks. And that is just to give the state the equivalent of an inch of rain.

    Yogi got a lot of attention for his amusing quotes and mannerism, but that shouldn’t overshadow the fact that he was a really, really good baseball player. One of the best of his era. He will definitely be missed.

    Ask anyone when the “good old days” were, and invariably they will respond with the years when they were a kid. Life was indeed simpler back then because we weren’t aware of things the way we are when we are older. Most of us did not watch the news or read the newspaper or talk about the world with our peers. Most of us lived in a bubble, and inside the bubble it was great. Then you grow up and the bubble starts to burst and you see things you never saw as a kid.

    @superposition : there is one substantial difference – appointing supreme court justices. If a Republican wins, the court will gain more conservative judges, if a Democrat wins, the court will gain more liberal ones. That is a big deal no matter which party you support.
