  1. 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. 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. 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).
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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. 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.
  9. Does that mean that there is no way for a big bang that is finite in size to expand to an infinite size?
  10. My question is how do you DETECT a fossil microbe on Mars? They would be microscopic. Is there a microscope on Perseverance?
  11. 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?
  12. In my retirement I have lots of time to kill, so I wanted to see Rush Limbaugh’s reaction to the attack on the Capitol on January 6th. His entire show for January 7th was available on Youtube for several weeks, but it is gone now. I listened to it a few times, taking notes. Then I completely transcribed the first 20 minutes because I want to understand Trumpers. Rush started his show on the 7th by saying that he was having a “hard time” (from his cancer and he died about 6 weeks later). Rush was a major factor in Trump winning in 2016, and 74.1 million votes in 2020, because of his large radio audience. Rush began his 1-7-2021 show exalting himself, repeating as Trump does, like a magician or hypnotist telling his audience what they are about to hear, preparing them, misdirecting them. Then craftily repeating and reinforcing the same messages, and the same lies. I deleted many of Rush's repetitions. Repeat it often enough and long enough and they will believe because THEY WANT TO BELIEVE. That makes it a “good lie” because “the ends justifies the means.” Figure out what lie your audience wants to hear, then tell it over and over. The ends = Trump in power, the means = by ALL means, even to lie cheat and steal for the “greater good.” Trump: “Fellas, fellas, all I need are 11,000 votes.” My opinion is there are 2 things that got Trump elected in 2016: 1. The enemy of my enemy is my friend 2. Pro wrestling Trump sold his hatred for Democrats to 1/3 of Americans who are GOP and were raised to hate the other party. Trump expressed to them hatred is good. Trumpers like that. To them he is cute. “It’s just Trump being Trump.” Anyone who likes pro wrestling likes it fake and stupid, and the ends justifies the means. ------------------------------------ Rush 1-7-21: “Every show seems like the most important show. Every caller matters. Everyone is on the edge of their chairs. Every program reverberates with the truth that the country we were born in is the best. There are going to be an infinite number of emotions and explanations today” [about the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6th]. Rush continues that on Oct. 10, 2016 he warned everyone about what is happening now. “One wrong word.” Rush repeats this over and over. “One wrong word.” “Monitors are out there. Big brother is listening for one wrong word. That is how precariously we are all balanced here. Everybody is condemning Trump. Bill Barr and Lindsey Graham. Barr said Trump betrayed the presidency by inciting the mob.” It turns out many GOP, including McConnell and McCarthy, who initially condemned Trump for the riot, reversed to support Trump again. “Why are people abandoning Trump? Because if you desire a political life in DC you have to say that. Hawley and Gaetz are not backing down, but most of them are. They have to say Trump betrayed the presidency.” Rush reminds us that he predicted what will happen to anyone who challenges the establishment. The “left” are the “enemy” who want to “destroy” anyone who challenges them. “They want to destroy anyone who tries to take control from them. They will destroy that person to send a message to the next guy. Don’t even think about it. Don’t even try. Look what they did to Trump. How did I know? I know the people on the left. I know who the enemy is. I know how they roll, how they live. I know how you don’t do this to them. They want a scalp. They want somebody buried. They want a political coffin.” Then Rush complains about what Hank Johnson said about criminals, who follow Trump’s example, will be held accountable, they will be treated like “negros.” That is a step too far for Rush. “Hank Johnson said: ‘we don’t want to be nice. We don’t want to move forward. We want blood. We got to make sure that those that come after Trump will not be allowed to get away with what Trump did. They will be held accountable. They will be treated like negros. They will be purp-walked to jail with hands cuffed behind their back. They will be booked. If we allow him to get away with it there will be others who will try to do the same thing.’” If you don’t prosecute crime, that will encourage crime. “I predicted exactly what happened yesterday and today to Trump, to you who voted for him. Hank Johnson confirmed my prediction.” This does not confirm his prediction. Rush quoted Lindsey Graham: “Trump and I had a hell of a journey. How I hated it to end this way. From my POV Trump has been a consequential president, but today 1st thing you will see….all I can say is count me out. Enough is enough. I’ve tried to be helpful.” Rush said: “There you see if you want a life in DC you have to say that. So, get used to it. Voices of dissent will be silenced on Facebook and Twitter, including Trump and you. Dissent will be dealt with accordingly.” Rush was correct about Trump being silenced from Twitter and Facebook. “How would it have been different today if congress was as mad at business being burned, and as innocent citizens were attacked last summer during the riots in many cities. Imagine if there was anything like that. The political class was not being attacked. Nothing was done about it. It was ignored in the mainstream media. No video of the burning and looting. What would congress think if what happened at the Capitol happened for months? The people protesting yesterday got no such benefit of the doubt. Even the most fervent supporters of Trump have turned 180 degrees against him because if you want a career in DC you have to abandon Trump. You have to almost apologize for helping Trump.” It turns out that most GOP who “abandoned Trump” have reversed, and now support his BIG LIE. “Remember ‘defund the police’? What if the capitol police were defunded? There are two sets of rules. The law will not be applied fairly. Leftists bailed out rioters in the summer. What if the NRA did that? Dems don’t care. There are two sets of rules.” Then Rush said something about “seditious conspiracy” and “cutting edge societal evolution.” “One wrong word. I predicted it. But I failed to educate us about the American and world-wide LEFT. The way they think. Lack of morality. Lack of devotion to traditions we used to hold dear. John Adams said “There is no power to deal with immoral and unreligious people. The constitution is not for people who are not moral.” Trumpist projection at its’ best. Trump and his grifter cohorts, carefully selected for loyalty and not competence. They are certainly not moral. “I’ve been watching media coverage. There are no fires or stores being looted. So, it’s no big deal. No ANTIFA. No fires? No looting? Big deal. They took selfies. You dare not set foot in the Capitol. Trump’s inauguration had fires.” Why burn the place they are occupying? That would be counterproductive to overthrowing the government. This was the first 20 minutes of Rush’s show on 1-7-2021, the day after the Capitol riot. Rush Limbaugh's show has been the number one commercial talk show since at least 1987 when record keeping began. Among the most highly compensated figures in American radio history, in 2018 Forbes listed his earnings at $84.5 million.[1] In December 2019, Talkers Magazine estimated that Limbaugh's show attracted a cumulative weekly audience of 15.5 million listeners.

  16. 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)
  17. I agree. Thanks for the info! You get plus 1 for that.
  18. 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.
  19. 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."
