Re: Laura Buxtons ...QuoteWhat has been fascinating in this discussion is that none of the skeptics seem to feel the need to question the veracity of the story [Laura Buxton's balloon].
The odds of the balloon being found, and two “Laura Buxton”s existing within a balloon's-flight distance are not astronomical.
That would be interesting but difficult to calculate - what is more mathematically probable: a balloon sent and found by two Laura Buxtons of the same age with a dozen other striking simularities OR the likelihood that the media would invent or exagerate a story for profit?

The greedy resource hungry top fraction that invented the electric light; developed modern medicine; wrote heart-rending poetry; composed magnificent opera; thought of the wheel, fire, tool-use, and the digital watch; visited the moon, eradicated small-pox ... terrible drain on society we can live without em! sooner we get back to living in dark caves the better, damn it perhaps moving out of the oceans was a bad idea in the first place
