DnD Central / Re: DnD entropy
I think I may have created my My Opera account in May or June of 2001

Let's see, I had a Symbian flip phone that I first put Opera Mini on. And I still have the first touchscreen phone, also Symbian, that I remember posting significantly on the forums with. Prolly puts me around 2006 or '07. Every phone since has been Android.

Sadly the younger ones of us have gotten lives.
Damn, knew I was supposed to be doing something...😬

You wanna build a snowman.
The Lounge / Re: True or false?
False. It is supposed to but I doubt it amounts to much.

You just realized Monday is a holiday.
The Lounge / Re: True or false?

Your favorite tv show comes on tonight.
The Lounge / Re: True or false?
True. How'd you know it was raining? lol

You've found something you forgot you had recently.
The Lounge / Re: True or false?

You didn't sleep very good last night.
The Lounge / Re: Random Chat
Ha. Don't tell me. I don't wanna catch it.

Apparently I got homesick on our last excursion up north. We visited her old stomping grounds and stopped in Chicago for a few days on the way back. I got Rocky Top stuck in my head the last day or so and the whole way home. No one was amused.

The Lounge / Re: True or false?
No... who said I did?

You like to drink coffee in the morning?
The Lounge / Re: Random Chat
Damn, those are pretty good odds you'll be close to home. :(
The Lounge / Re: Random Chat
Call me crazy but I think you'd rather be there than a Memphis hospital during an evaluation.

Just an ugly boring city. Gorgeous lake tho. I might deep down just be jealous I'm not out on that lake.

Where it's gonna be at is my interest. I'm hoping for a mini road trip to East Tennessee. :)
The Lounge / Re: True or false?
True. There's a small stack somewhere I always think I need to check every time I see them.

You prefer a late night in to a late night out?
Whether or not Facebook is a system app may depend on the software's build. I've seen it as a systems app, sure, however I've had some of the mentioned models and it not be. It wasn't on my S8 but was on my Note4. It's not on my Note9 though. Samsung isn't necessarily responsible for the OS version. Mine is an N960U. Iirc, the U means it's Samsung's version. More often the providers have their own and apps they partner with get stuck in as system apps (or bloatware). The major provider versions, here, are N960A/S/V, for At&t, Sprint and Verizon. The missus uses At&t however when I got her a phone I got a Verizon S7. I had to remove Verizon's OS to get the data connection to work right and I put back the universal version which didn't contain bloatware as system apps. I then thought better of it and installed At&t's version, removed the system apps I didn't want and then removed root access, so her phone is basically stock At&t with some bloat nixed. She uses Facebook but knowing me I still pulled it from the system folder before derooting.

**Maybe Samsung's letter was J on hers... Idk.  Either way different versions yada yada. :)

 It does look like it's sucking up all the matter from the bottom ones and adding it to the top of the list.

Best wishes for all in 2019! :cheers:
DnD Central / Re: royalty for mining
in total you give 37,5% royalti from total profit.
No, that's not right.
DnD Central / Re: The weekend post
@jax, I forgot to mention the missus named a horse after you. He's 6-7mos old now, I'll try to remember to snap a new pic or grab a birth pic off my old phone. In good form with circumstances that's likely to be random. But little horsey just popped out months ahead of expectations. So random that the missus elected to name him after the OP of the Random Horse thread.  :headbang:
DnD Central / Re: royalty for mining
Looking further it seems mines with that particular mix aren't uncommon. You can even buy one in the US. Turns out, also, laws for mining ores in the US are mostly unchanged since 1872. Other resources have separate legislation but that seems to be the focus here.

As far as dividing the resources, you can sell the rights to a particular one alone.

"Mineral rights" entitle a person or organization to explore and produce the rocks, minerals, oil and gas found at or below the surface of a tract of land. The owner of mineral rights can sell, lease, gift or bequest them to others individually or entirely. For example, it is possible to sell or lease rights to all mineral commodities beneath a property and retain rights to the surface. It is also possible to sell the rights to a specific rock unit (such as the Pittsburgh Coal Seam) or sell the rights to a specific mineral commodity (such as limestone). Source.

But, unless you're getting different rates for each material there's no point in breaking them down. That's not a cumulative effect either. Total revenue less overhead is the net profit... you divide that. If you had a better rate on gold, for example, you'd make the math a little more complicated.
DnD Central / Re: royalty for mining
I'd assume it's actually a lease to which you sell the mineral rights.

There's been cases involving both ore and oil in the US. How much land one owns below and above the surface varies per case. The ones I can think of aren't exactly up-to-date. Examples where drilling at an angle for oil or tunneling under someone else's property brought a lawsuit. Bit of a mixed bag of results there.

One would assume you could broker any deal in the agreement you want as long as the other party feels it's fair. I'm sure it can vary greatly depending on what is being mined. How much of an investment to extract it surely plays a part too - Environmental laws, land reclaiming efforts, labor and infrastructure all add to the overall tally. There are norms to frame the aforementioned agreement but no one here has ever stated they are in any such field.
DnD Central / Re: Everything Trump…
 I wanna see a pic of the amphibian. Someone messed up.  :mad:

In all seriousness they need to stop naming stuff after the spin d[ouche]r.
Didn't know you were a dramatist... Tcharam!!!
Theatrics have a place.
I'd never suggest otherwise. :)
What is that spoiler thing at ensbb3 post?
Dramatic effect?

Click to reveal. Or don't.
