American Financing Corporation[edit]

Can you please tell me why you deleted our corporate page? I realize it hasn't had any activity in a while - but all content was relevant even if not updated. We are now a national company within the United States and are preparing for many national advertising and branding campaigns and I think an active and up to date Wikipedia pages should be a component of this. Can you please let me know how to retrieve previous placed content? Also how do I prevent this from happening in the future.

(talk page stalker) I have not looked at the history of your page, but I suspect it was deleted for advertising. We strongly discourage people from writing articles about themselves or their own companies, because of the obvious conflict of interest. If your company truly is notable, someone else can, and is likely to, create an article about it. LadyofShalott 23:12, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Lady, I see said user is blocked now. I am not particularly active these days. How did you like the twelfth? Keeping in mind I haven't watched yet. --kelapstick(on the run) 00:46, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Beautiful mine photos and a Doctor[edit]

I saw this article of mine photos. A photo in Germany's strip mine reminded me of a Star Wars big doohickey. While growing up, I'd watch out the house window with binoculars and see the huge dump trucks' load drop down the 2,000 ft overburden pile. I was 10 miles away from Kennecott. Didn't know I was growing up on a 50 sqmi proposed superfund site. It didn't get on the list after Kennecott agreed to install the world's largest inland osmosis plants. It will take around 30 years to clean the groundwater. My dad did grow up on a partial Kennecott superfund site. They came into my grandparent's neighborhood and striped everything from the land that wasn't a house. Another of the valley's superfund sites was a uranium processing facility that was active in the late 40s to the 60s. You could get the left over tailings for free. When people built houses, they would use the free dirt. Around 10 houses next to where my mom grew up had the fun-filled dirt. Hmmm, all these superfund sites in my family tree might explain some of my "quirks".

For Monday, I've got tickets to watch Doctor Who's season premier in a movie theater. Four showings at the theater are sold out. I'm sure Drmies is very jealous. Bgwhite (talk) 08:48, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Oh darn. I'll miss it again. Drmies (talk) 13:54, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
    • I stick to the underground, that way you can't see what we are up to, save for the large tailings pile. I have known a few people who have been to Diavik. And Bingham canyon. In fact I was working for the parent company as a contractor (at a different mine) when the landslide happened. I have also been to Grasberg, truly something to behold, the whole operation. A city on a mountain in the middle of nowhere. Rains every day at 2:00 pm, could set your watch to it. Cable cars to get people to the pit. I was underground, they have churches and mosques within the mine. I missed the premier, but have it taped at home. Been out camping for a few days. If I don't actually have it taped, I will see if I can get a ticket tomorrow. It's playing locally. --kelapstick(on the run) 00:44, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
      • I'd go camping over watching a tv show any day. My grandfather was in the coal mines for a few months before going off to WWII. He hated the experience and only told horror stories of his time. I enjoyed the premier, but wasn't excited. I like the new Doctor as he is a good change of pace over the ever increasingly younger Doctors. It was funny. I'm just not a fan of the Victorian trio and shows that take place during that time. It was rather boring except for the humor. Bgwhite (talk) 04:48, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
        • Well the premier did not tape in the end (not sure why), however I was able to figure that out the day it was also showing in theatre. Fortunately Pictou County does not have a significant Doctor Who following, so tickets were plentiful. We were also able to get decent seats. I didn't care for the performance at the beginning, however Capaldi managed to pick it up around the middle, and I enjoyed it. --kelapstick(bainuu) 14:10, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
