Newtonian's Achievements


Molecule (6/13)



  1. Forgive me for not understandng this ! The thread is about Mokele's promotion,if only positive feedback was invited, shouldn't it have been clearly stated.I post my PO on the subject regarding both his conduct as a member(in regards to his insulting other members) coupled with his inability (clearly evident over the few short weeks) to be a responsible moderator.Instead as i earlier stated he would,he has used the position as a soapbox to slag off,insult,close threads and ban people. I do not have a magic ability of understanding others thoughts...its called common sense assesment when the threads are littered with his arguments and feaces throwing at other members. Somehow merely bringing my concerns up publicly in the relevant thread qualifies myself for personal attack.I have no other agenda than told you so! As i have been pretty consistsnt on the subject,Severian and Ophi are by example excellent members and my proposals for mod status...as regards to myself well i speak my mind if you find that objectionable,then coupled with my non american status i dont expect to be made MOD. As to the last para..Yes i do hear myself saying it Phi,it happens to be true..if you liken that with a petulant six year old it just goes to show...theres nowt as queer as folk
  2. Well...well..well. Talk about good judge of character....it appears that it was wholly justifiable.In the short time since Mokele's promotion the threads are littered with his insulting remarks,threads closed and numerous bans....if thats your idea of what moderation is all about,or you think that it is acceptable.Then some criticism of the other current moderators is in order "just what were you doing before this gentleman came along,and showed you that you have been neglecting your duties"....*shakes head* I could show you good moderation in 2 weeks compared to some here....to moderate well...is a time consuming effort,dedication to the tasks,always for the benefits of others without acknowledgment or reward...a good moderator is one that no one is aware of....it is not unfortunately like present a position to boost the ego's of a few individuals.... Anyone want a crash course or tuition on the subject im here....otherwise carry on the good work Mokele
  3. If a sticky is required for C-14 i would gladly compile one. However concerning only the points you raised Jhn B.C-14 is a reliable( not foolproof) dating technique on its own.When used in conjunction with other dating techniques we can be extremely confident(as a geologist i feel qualified in making that statement). You are quite correct in your questioning the rate of 14C creation.This is a problem(gasps from audience)we are fully aware of, which is why we dont solely rely on C-14 dating.For instance the atmospheric fraction of 14C/Ctotal cannot have always been constant,as far as im aware no real scientist has stated it has always been constant.Though the rate of decay has , hence the techniques relevance and reliability up to a max of around 60,000yr.Without going over equilibrium and other technical issues brought up by creationist argument..id like to leave it there Unfortunately in many cases its faulty procedure not the technique thats at fault.As in cases such as the Turin Shroud.,its my understanding that the shroud is indeed of the age 2000 years(an endorsing testament to the dating method)...and thats as far as one can go....it cannot tell us that it wrapped jesus!!
  4. Ode to the gullible...............its a novel.........a story........made up.....ya know like independance day with will smith(guess what....there is a white house....and aeroplanes....must be a true story then)
  5. OMG......As sayo seems to be too busy these days,what on the surface looks a direct replacement.Is the most rediculus (intellectually dishonest)choice of moderator i have ever seen at SFN. Whilst there is a moderate similarity of character,Mokele lacks the charisma and dry wit.Instead we are offered other atributes,an arrogant, self righteous,obnoxious,insulting,undignified little boy.Frankly its laughable. I can only assume the admin has had a bad trip on LSD,there are far more sensible and deserving members whom would benefit SFN and its membership.Unfortunately people whom can conduct themselves in exemplary fashion and are well recieved and respected are overlooked for this moron.People like Severian/Ophiolite. There are only a few admin and mods that can and actually do a good service to SFN,Blike/Phi/Dave/Coquina.....the rest think they are on some power trip(its a science forum on the internet..get a grip!!!)....ive watched some good and poor members leave SFN mainly because of frustration at the poor moderation being carried out.Moderators whom evidently do not adhere to the forum rules themselves(YT ??). This is a Science forum....and at one time a great one ....not a platform for friendless insignificant little pricks to disrespect,insult the people whom make up the SFN membership.Without the membership there is no SFN forum... SFN is being eroded and im sure the hard core members are aware of it.Jeez you may as well go the whole ten yards and promote Hellbender(sorry hellbender) Anyway needed to get that out... the forum is sinking beneath the waves.....of mediocrity. IMO moderators should be selected by the membership.Voted in by the membership.That way you actually get the best most respected members moderating.
  6. I believe newtonian is being very serious....he thinks you dont know what a cracker is (apart from those biscuits you put cheese on)
  7. The ptfe piston seal should last you for ever,same applys to the spring...so dont worry about spares......your link was to a plinker....okay for shooting tin cans and targets.But otherwise crapola!!! and not worth 64 pence. The more important issues are what do you want to use it for and where are you intending to shoot it. In my case ive had air rifles since i was 16(long..long time ago) i had BSA mercury etc and stopped after my last rifle the weihrauch hw 80 1.77 . The laws in the Uk are very strict now so unless you have private land(farm etc) you risk prosecution using it around the home(garden etc) The air rifle market is relatively cheap now so there is a wide choice from BB guns to gas cylinder recoiless target rifles. How much do you plan on spending,where are you going to use it,what is its intended purpose.......depending on the circumstances a good second hand one may be ideal rather than a new one...also if you intend to have small mammals, birds ,cats,and the odd child dodging pellets, i would recommend you but a cap gun. Take it from experience i had quite a macabre collection of corpses and note books filled with my best snuff shots.( amazing stories of death and skill to amaze and disgust....from decapitaing a crow at 100yards,shooting my friends in the head with a GAT...to downing a goose in flight though not wityh a GAT)...you only deeply regret later in life. Thankfully all the psycho profiling is nonsense...none of the gang went on to become serial killers...quite the opposite everyone of us now has a managerie of pets...to the extremes of grooming pet rabbits and budgie shows....remarkable when one considers we used to buy rabbits at the pet store for our tag ferret tourneys..pfff rabbits cant fight very well..
  8. Im voting for that twat Mokele.Constantly accusing everyone of being intellectually dishonest(has anyone done a postcount he must have hit the century.....rofl edit...err better not add that .....he wont get the joke!
  9. Yes they dont naturally shed there wool.....wool also keeps you warm in the cold weather and cool in the warm weather!! good yes?
  10. With a cup of coffee and two paracetamol.......
