1. ## Fencing around Capitol for Sept. 18 ?

If they put up fencing around the Capitol again, that will prevent the Trumpers from entering restricted Capitol property. Instead the Capitol police should set up an ambush with no fences. Warn them that they will be arrested if they enter restricted grounds. When they do enter restricted grounds, they are surrounded by thousands of cops who pop out of nowhere, zip tie, and arrest everyone who defied the warning.
2. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

We don't know. This is only a thought experiment. This is only IF you could travel extreme distances in a second. It is possible that the universe does not remain so isometric and homogeneous at great distances as the observable portion does, such as trillions or googols of light years away. This is assuming it does not curve back on itself. For that reason it is wrong to say there is no center or edge to the universe (big bang). We don't know either way, both are guesses. How do you know the universe is isometric and homogeneous very far beyond the observable universe?
3. ## What are you listening to right now?

Thanks for the vibes Charlie Watts.
4. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

If big bangs are finite events, the edge is simply where you don't find any more galaxies, if you could travel so fast to reach the edge. The way to find the "edge" is simply travel in a straight line. But that assumes the big bang doesn't curve back on itself, which makes everything more complicated. If the big bang is a finite event, there could be a theoretical center of the big bang (universe).
5. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

I've seen animations showing a multiverse of big bang blobs drifting in the bulk, or budding off another universes. Expansion happens, but if the multiverse model is correct then you will certainly have big bang "leading edges" expanding away from a center region. Each universe will have a center and edges. Beyond the edge of a universe is simply the absence of matter or energy until you reach the next big bang. I don't have any problem with infinity. People who say there is no center or outside the universe are WAG'ing. They are assuming that there is no multiverse. That is a WAG. I just reason there MAY BE higher levels or organization, rather than supposing the universe is the final structure with no center and no edge. You don't know that. Just like particles get smaller. You can split atoms into smaller particles. You can split protons and neutrons into quarks, etc. This is a WAG, but guessing is all we can do beyond the level of observable universe. Solar systems Galaxies Galaxy Clusters Galaxy Superclusters Universes Multiverses "The multiverse is a hypothetical group of multiple universes.[a] Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, information, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The different universes within the multiverse are called "parallel universes", "other universes", "alternate universes", or "many worlds". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse Here are universes, with centers and edges, drifting in the "bulk." https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=JThPqP%2bp&id=5B5387756B7B47E7448D1B75D5D0B27B53755333&thid=OIP.JThPqP-psD4jPsTwZZePKwHaEK&mediaurl=https%3a%2f%2fwww.sciencenews.org%2fwp-content%2fuploads%2f2019%2f09%2f101219_ts_reviews_feat.jpg&cdnurl=https%3a%2f%2fth.bing.com%2fth%2fid%2fR.25384fa8ffa9b03e233ec4f065978f2b%3frik%3dM1N1U3uy0NV1Gw%26pid%3dImgRaw%26r%3d0&exph=580&expw=1030&q=images+of+multiverse&simid=608023659644742442&FORM=IRPRST&ck=CA24EE2BDAEC178A07CE1562E97E8825&selectedIndex=42&ajaxhist=0&ajaxserp=0
6. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

I really want to know where exactly I went wrong with my WAG. So I separated my points so anyone can easily address them and enlighten me to what is true and what is WAG. Please be specific and not just ridicule me as a WAG. 1 Our big bang may either be finite in size or infinite in size. 2 All we know about "the universe" comes from our view of OUR big bang (observable universe 92 LY across). 3 There could be other big bangs or even a multiverse of branching bangs. 4 We call our view of OUR big bang "THE universe" but our observable universe is only local and tells us little about what is beyond. 5 So it seems like what we witness (big bang expansion) is finite, because the difference between finite and infinite, IS INFINITE. 6 Infinity is a tall order. Even though it COULD be infinite in size, more likely it is finite in size. There could be a region trillions or quadrillions or googols of light years away where there is simply no matter or energy from OUR big bang. That would be the rapidly expanding edge of our big bang.
7. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

I also would like to hear you explain the difference between these. What is "all-over inflation"? I've Googled it and wiki'ed it, and still can't find it. Is it a WAG?
8. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

What is WAG ?
9. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

Our big bang may either be finite in size or infinite in size. All we know about "the universe" comes from our view of OUR big bang. There could be other big bangs or even a multiverse of branching bangs. We like to call our view of OUR big bang "the universe" but our observable universe is only local. So it seems like what we witness (big bang expansion) is a finite event, because the difference between finite and infinite, IS INFINITE. Infinity is a tall order.

11. ## Steelworks of Saturn

Try to find an asteroid that has water-ice and the metals and materials you need for subsistence living on the asteroid. Attach to the asteroid a centrifuge for living in artificial gravity. Get to work excavating resources. Then after it is hollowed out enough you can build living quarters inside and start the asteroid spinning to get some artificial gravity for living inside the asteroid, sheltered from cosmic rays.
12. ## Could the real size of the universe be infinite?

Does that mean that there is no way for a big bang that is finite in size to expand to an infinite size?
13. ## Are their fossils on mars?

My question is how do you DETECT a fossil microbe on Mars? They would be microscopic. Is there a microscope on Perseverance?
14. ## Collapse of a building...

Anyone know how heavy a slab of concrete is over their head? If you are on the first floor, you have that weight times the number of stories hanging over your head. Concrete is the cheapest method of building, right? What about Buck Minster Fuller and the geodesic dome? What about the high structural integrity of a tetrahedron? Bamboo is very rigid and grows very fast. Why not have a light-weight grid of bamboo tetrahedrons between stories? I was thinking of an exterior frame of steel I beams. Upon that a framework of wood lumber, then between floors a lattice of tetrahedrons made from bamboo and other light-weight and flame-retardant materials between the floors. Anyone know how to build a 12-story building without using concrete?

21. ## OT from Rand Paul Called Fauci a Liar

No wonder his neighbor tackled him when he was doing yard work. Prosecutors reveal why Rand Paul was attacked by neighbor (nbcnews.com)
22. ## Rand Paul Called Fauci a Liar

That's what I was thinking. When Trump called Dr. Fauci and Birx "self-promoters trying to reinvent history" that was the best example of Trumpist psych projection I have ever witnessed. Trump, the king of branding and self-promotion, calling a couple of doctors self-promoters is funny and sick. The Latest: Trump blasts Fauci and Birx as 'self-promoters' (msn.com)
23. ## Rand Paul Called Fauci a Liar

I agree. Thanks for the info! You get plus 1 for that.
24. ## Rand Paul Called Fauci a Liar

Dr. Fauci should be able to clear up this confusion with a simple statement. He doesn't need to prove a negative. All Fauci needs to do is explain how Paul is either wrong or lying about him lying.
25. ## Rand Paul Called Fauci a Liar

Yesterday, 5-12-2021, Rand Paul called Dr. Fauci a liar about what happened in the Wuhan lab. Fauci needs to explain how he didn't lie to Rand Paul. Would someone please bring a microphone to Dr. Fauci? "Sen. Rand Paul said that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied Tuesday when he said that the National Institute of Health (NIH) did not fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology before the coronavirus outbreak." "I would say we don’t know for certain [where the virus came from], but I would say what Dr. Fauci said yesterday was verifiably false," Paul said. "He said no NIH money went to the Wuhan Institute for gain of function. Well, the main doctor there, the one they call the bat scientist or the bat woman... wrote a paper that MIT scientists have looked at that they said was gain of function -- meaning juicing up these viruses to make them very potent and infect humans. She wrote this paper and, in the paper, acknowledged her funding came from Dr. Fauci’s group, the NIAID, which is part of NIH. So, he is verifiably telling you something that is not true."
