  1. I think this has gone on long enough and is going nowhere so I’m locking this. Hopefully we can find something more interesting to discuss. Edit: Since new posts were made in the "Corona virus is Fake News" thread on this topic, I have moved them here.

  2. MRE means Meal Ready to Eat. Sir C. Stanton Hicks, a kiwi who spent much time in Australia, introduced science based nutrition into the military MRE as we know it today, among other things. When he went to the US in 1944 (the US military used no real nutrition standards like the British) they wanted to hire him on the spot but he declined. I read the book recently and it is a very interesting read. http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/hicks-sir-cedric-stanton-10499 https://www.morgansrarebooks.com/products/who-called-the-cook-a-bastard-by-c-stanton-hicks

  5. The term isn't 'day in age', it's 'day and age'. But otherwise I'm beginning to realize that you have a good point on UFO's and extraterrestrials. Maybe it's me that has always been wrong. Give me time to watch the 4 videos you've posted so I can evaluate your evidence thoroughly. It looks like there's about 6 hours of information there to absorb. Cheers, M.

  6. Actually I have not heard Mr. Icke speak of this as of yet but their is this: One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm. One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of "remuneration packages" for six people

    Smooth Earth

    The answer to the first question is '0'. There's not enough information provided to answer the 2nd. question but I can fix it for you. How many miles between two 6 foot tall people for them to see each other's heads if atmospheric conditions for viewing are perfect? 6 miles Bonus question: What kind of an a-s would want to invent a tail on Mars that can be seen by him and his daddy? Twice!

  10. So what if the dipictions of aliens in the 50s and 60s weren't similar to reports of alien sightings later on? That's not the question, the question is whether or not the aliens depicted in Close Encounters were based on reported sightings. Thoth's not that weird, there's loads of people who think as he does. You on the other hand are one, let's say 'special' dude. Can you honestly not see how you're every bit as bad as Thoth, just in the other direction?

  11. Do you really think Earth doesn't? If Mars has a magnetic field then it has to have a magnetotail and it also has to have it's own version of our nothern and southern lights. I know you're desperite to have something to use in the UFO debate because as soon as you take a definite position on one side or the other you don't have a leg to stand on but really this is a little pathetic. You still seem to incapable of understanding that a supernatural explanation is impossible by definition.

  12. Stability of the Hydrogen Atom (HA): According to classical physics, the hydrogen atom is composed of an electron orbiting a proton and the assumption here is that the electron would eventually plunge into the proton because it would lose its energy. This is another example of faulty math that is used to refute Newtonian mathematics. The reason why this math is erroneous is because the Magnetic forces are not considered. So, I would like to explain why that does not happen. The electrons revolution around the proton causes the proton to spin in the same direction as the motion of

  14. His opinions don't matter but yours do? Why, because you say so? But we don't know that alien life is that rare, so of course it isn't evidence. But are sighting descriptions based on those pop culture references or are those pop culture references based on reports of sightings? My position is undecided but you have presented nothing convincing for your position.

  15. I think Mars hasa weak magnetic field so maybe it got hit with a CME while you were looking at it and it reacted to produce a tail. No idea if that's possible, just a wild guess.

Well, the evidence of aliens being observed is less than conclusive but I am pretty sure I have seen a Grey Alien myself once, That's what I go off of that I have actually seen what I consider to be a alien.

  18. It doesn't rely on the supernatural, Dark Energy we know exists which is the same as having negative mass. Also, Wormholes and Warp Drives are accurate solutions to General Relativity being that General Relativity has been proven right, again and again, I don't think it's a huge leap to think that these exist too.

  19. To answer your question if the Aliens can travel using Wormhole Jump Drive or Alcubierre Warp Drive, it would take much less time to reach Earth at a faster than light movement speed. Humans do not have currently have the ability to create such devices, however that does not bar a more advanced alien species from having such devices on their spaceships for interstellar travel. Technically, they could travel thousands or millions of lightyears in years to seconds depending on the amount of energy they can channel into the devices to travel at 1 million times the speed of light that would just

  20. With 400 Billion Stars just in our galaxy, all with around 1 exoplanet each star and considering that there are millions of galaxies in the universe, I would say with that many stars with planets the odds are quite high as since the beginning the universe 800 million years has passed 17.125 times, which is your assumed timeline for alien life to evolve on it's own. So, with 400,000 Trillion Opportunities to evolve in the universe and 17.125 periods of time to evolve, I think with a number of 6,850,000 Trillion Opportunity-Periods is pretty high, but that is a weird unit, I think that number is

  22. Right. In fact, it has been the democrats who have not been able to accept defeat in the 2016 presidential election and have displayed near-psychotic Trump derangement syndrome ever since. If Trump wins this year we can expect to see Nancy Pelosi and more than a few other democrats totally lose their minds.

  23. I find laughably few reasons to expect such vice from the likes of Trump. Personally, I don't like the guy; he's made some bad choices in his past, and he's got a bad attitude. But he's done too many good things and not enough bad things to be reasonably portrayed as some vile psychopath.

The younger you are the more easily your skin will regrow without scarring and some scars do fade over time, like it took 20 years for one of my scars to disappear.

  27. The Great American Mask Rip-Off In a riveting YouTube video, Patrick Wood and Citizens for Free Speech feature neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, who discusses the totalitarian world that’s evolving with COVID-19, including mandated mask-wearing and the possibility of a mandatory vaccine. The fallacy of mask-wearing is that masks are not the end-all, be-all that governments are trying to claim. First, not all masks are alike and they don’t all protect the same — if they

  28. That ship is a museum piece in Pearl Harbor, decommissioned in 1992 I think, so I do find it hard to believe you worked in the comcenter. How can you work in the comcenter but not serve aboard her? What I really do not get is why the USN needs an Australian cryptographer to work in their ship comcenters? The USN doesn't have qualified people so they need to call you in?

Oh, I know, you really didn't mean battleships just like you really didn't mean to say your TS clearance was given by the US, right? As has been pointed out to you several times now, whatever security clearance you may have been given by the Australian authority, it is NOT valid at all in the US and it cannot be the same clearance, no matter how many times you assert it. The US Coast Guard probably works far more with security allied countries and even non-allied countries, than the US Navy simply b

  30. When you get caught in a lie you will most likely be called a liar and you should learn to accept it. You said you had the highest level of security clearance given by the US. The US does not give security clearances to non-US citizens. You lied. That fact is obvious to everybody. Now I will be moving all this crap out of this thread.

  31. My last comment on this also. Yes this is true about the CAC card and I appreciate you for sharing. Also on a side note when I was in Iraq. There was NATO there and Aussies, Italians and many others from other countries. None of them were allowed any kind of access of anything secret. And the only way any of them were even allowed on a flightline they needed to be escorted. Even when the Aussies landed they had to be escorted everywhere and anyone and everyone who was not a citizen of the US. Same thing back at the home bases in the US.

  32. I agree with you Monty; I may move all of this security clearance tangent to its own thread later, but first I need to add just one more post. In case anyone might be interested, (doubtful) here is an information sheet (pdf) that will tell you all you need to know about security clearances issued in Australia by the Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA): Make special note of what the clearances are called. There is NO mention of a Top Secret clearance because there isn’t any such thing issued in Australia. As a general indication, once AGSVA have received all th

    Finally someone else who actually understands security 101, need to know, or compartmentalization, it's the same thing. The only difference for me was I was in crypto and signals, it is a part of my job to monitor the integrity of the communications links, the only way you do that is to be able to monitor and view everything on the network, so all signals about everything, I 'needed' to know. So I had that access. I did not 'work with' the NSA, I used equipment made by the NSA (again from the crypto world), I had the equipment design and full access to the encryption keys, and as s

  34. Hadn't responded because I have been away from home recently. I think your question confuses how you want the world to be with how it actually is. It is perfectly normal for lifeguards and security guards to experience boredom on the job. It is just like any job. Now to answer your question, I wanted to be a lifeguard in the past to improve my safety and confidence in the water (that is why my name said "wannabe lifeguard"). I never became a lifeguard and no longer want to be a lifeguard. I have developed my own water confidence separately. I also don't want to be a security guard -

    Mutex, thanks for your answer to the question. Hopefully Victor will still have an interest in following this topic too. p.s. Most of all I'm interested in creating some much needed traffic on this board because it's teetering on the verge IMO.

The fact that the LED lights up is proof that there is a complete circuit, go an buy a multimeter, put it on Ohms and you will measure a resistance between your electrical ground and the bath, and you will read an electrical resistance between the washing machine and the bath. You could even just do V=IR and based on the voltage needed to light the LED and the current the LED draws you can calculate that resist

  46. See Olber's Paradox The assumption is for a universe that is infinitely old, with an infinitely large number of stars distributed homogenously in an infinite space. In that case, the entire sky would be as bright as the surface of a star. The resolution is the observed fact that the universe is finitely old and is expanding. This, coupled with the finite speed of light means that only a finite number of stars can be observed from Earth. Also, redshift of light, caused by the expansion, shifts observable light into the microwave range, as we see in the cosmic microwave background which do

  48. Hazel, you have got this a bit garbled. The formula for table salt is NaCl. The atomic mass of Na is 23. For Cl it is 35.5 (it is not a whole number due to the mixture of isotopes that Cl consists of in nature.) So the molecular weight of NaCl is 23+35.5=58.5, which means it consists of about 40% Na and about 60% Cl. The other chemicals you mention are probably additives, present in small amounts, to stop it clogging in humid conditions and for your health (iodide is added to prevent iodine deficiency for instance see goitre). The fineness of the crystals is a matter of choice in the superma

  49. Janus The electron does not radiate a photon unless it absorbs a photon first. In the ground state of the HA, it is radiating a continuous sign wave of one angstrom. The ground state of the HA is the normal balanced state of the HA where all forces and orbital momentum of the electron is balanced. In this state, all the HA's would also be in the GS. So there is no absorption of energy by any of the surrounding atoms. This complies with the Laws of Conservation of Energy. Even though space is saturated with these one angstrom continuous sign waves, there is nothing in space to absorb thes

  50. The reason that electrons would lose energy under classical physics is that it is a charge traveling in a circular motion, and a circular motion is an accelerated motion. Accelerating charges emit electromagnetic radiation. The energy for this electromagnetic radiation has to come from the electron, thus the electron spirals in. Now let's see how this applies to your "explanation": As the electron reaches its "ground state", it is still moving in a circular motion. Thus it must still be emitting EMR, and still be losing energy. The only place this energy can come from is the proton-ele
