  1. The evolution of us homo sapiens to the Pinnacle of this planets food chain probably falls just a tad short of being worthy of labeling it a miracle. Yet....I think most evolutionary biologists and anthropologists would admit that a vast amount of luck was involved. If you took 100 identical scenarios, of our planet in the exact form and with the exact numbers and types of Flora and fauna and climatalogical conditions as it had, say. 200 million years ago....and then set all those replica scenarios in motion again, there's every chance that not in one of those 100 replays would we ag
  2. But you don't need the math. Or 500 words or more to prove that it's ludicrous to believe that imagining something is tantamount to conjuring it into reality. I can clearly and concisely and irrefutably prove that claim wrong by asking the claimant one six word question..... "Have you ever imagined flying unaided?" Game...set...match. LOL And of course I could come up with three dozen equally brief and bulletproof questions that would equally damn this pipe dream of bringing vivid imaginings to reality. Itd take about twelve minutes. Or just mentioning
  3. I once had a similar school project and made this foot actuated lever that sat on the floor by your fridge. When you needed it you stepped on it and it opened and closed the door for you. Because we all know how physically demanding it is to have to both open AND close the door with your hands and arms! LOL But check out these reminders of what constitutes a simple machine. As you peruse the list look around your house and think of your daily routines. You'll come up with something. Hint...can't go wrong with the old wheel and axle. Or...like mine, a lever activated mechanism.
  4. Wrong. The recent climate change cycle has been going on for far too brief a time for one to extrapolate it into a one billion years formula! And climate change had zero to do with the OP red giant question.
  5. Pretty comprehensive list, Swanny. I especially am digging #14.
  6. But that linked article offered no proof refuting anything in the documentary I'm speaking of. Indeed...the linked article was written before the doc. The only damning incident mentioned in the article was a letter from Woolsey to Greer that said he embellished a dinner party convo. This is a typical defense response from a guy who has realized he said too much about what he shouldn't have. Or thought he was off record. Politicians do this all the time. Not one of the dozens of testimonials for alien contact in the documentary was mentioned. Either was the doc! Again...until you
  7. Hey tollua.... I used to have the same model. Or rather....DW did. What you wanna do is press down on and make sure to hold down Power button three times to shut down the machine. This should make the bootstrap program m direct you to the BOOT REPAIR page after 2-3 times of reboot. VB
  8. I believe the link I posted will answer some of your questions. If not....a mere twenty minutes googling reviews on the doc certainly will. As will viewing a couple YouTube clips. I disagree with your last point vehemently. Sometimes there is SO much compelling material in a given presentation that a full viewing IS required. Other than that.....I must stand by my aforementioned policy of not defending Bor discussing Unacknowledged until the person I'm discussing with had viewed it. It's a waste of my time rehashing for somebody not interested enough to devote a mere ninety minutes for in
  9. I'm currently a Certified Fitness Trainer..and my degree is in psychology..so this baby is right up my alley. As others have said,,,yeah...you CAN raise and lower your heart rate with your thoughts. As far as elevating the BPM...how high you get it really depends upon how adept you are at conjuring excitory thoughts. The trick is that you need to make yourself believe or at least feel as if what you're thinking about.....sex, fighting, being chased down by Freddy Kruger...is really happening. Obviously some of us are more proficient at this than are others. And again, practice will help.
  10. Well..first off I believe you're short changing us earthlings a little with your time scale. Most cosmologists think it's gonna be closer to five to seven billion years before our sun begins expanding into a red giant on it's way to totally incinerating the inner four planets. Unfortunately...it's not gonna be an immediate and painless process, like if you were caught at the epicenter of a nuclear explosion. Nope....any life on Earth during this event will die in inches. Or rather....a little at a time over a three or four decade time window. As the sun's hydrogen nuclear fusion wind
  11. Hey cats....I have a sort of off da wall, but I think fairly intriguing thought problem for you. We were chatting a little Saturday about terrorists and potential terrorist actions occurring in the US. So maybe some residue from that was on my mind this morning while I was watching the new Netflix reboot of the old Lost In Space TV series. BTW....it's very well done, I think. So....in that series, the Robinsons have this all terrain vehicle that's sorta like a Hummer on steroids. Thing can climb over just about anything. I was enjoying watching this thing do some impressive high spee
  12. Yes....it is my own personal opinion. Hey! Congrats....you finally got something right on this forum. Keep it up, Charm School. Cheers.
  13. Oh....ya mean theme as in screen settings and the forum's template appearance! When I initially read your OP title I thought you were advocating that we begin addressing darker issues, as in more edgy, controversial, and potentially depressing. Gothic? Maybe like supernatural or paranormal stuff. LOL. Can't see any o' dat woo flying here. But I reckon we do have the Lounge, eh? My wife is on a couple of those paranormal sites. I checked em out once in awhile. Decent entertainment at times. And I can't explain why but it's somehow refreshing to read all these believers in that stuff.
  14. Just so. And the sort of all but useless and low level of application in real world education our kids are getting has worsened since the whole state and federal requirements standards tests were intituted. Talk to any Grade 3 to 12 teacher. They spend virtually all their class time prepping their little darlings for the year end exams. These exams are the determinates for future funding and accreditation. Thus....sort of an important deal! LOL. In a way the teacher's very livelihoods depend on good or at least adequate test scores. To quote my teacher ex-wife.....the whole freaking year is pr
  15. Who's forgetting? We all know about the possible Timothy McVeighs of the world. But last I checked, Al Quaeda and ISIL and Taliban, Hezbollah, et al were not homegrown. You also might wanna read this, Hydra man. http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/features/10560/ I'll see that link and raise you! http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/features/10560/
