  1. I think you are doing fine on your own. I didn't really like Blindfold my ICE but the other four are great. Sorry I'm not more help but I got nothing.
  2. This was very hard for me to wrap my mind around as well. Its not just the clocks everything is moving at a different rate including ageing processes. If you look out at earth from your spaceship traveling at near light speed not only will you see clocks moving slower but the people will be moving slowly as well.
  3. They are not being deceptive. They have different criteria. As it turns out my explanation was deficient. https://exoplanetarchive.ipac.caltech.edu/docs/exoplanet_criteria.html Maybe thats stupid to you but I really don't see it that way.
  4. Except that it is. https://www.seeker.com/exoplanet-count-blasts-through-the-1000-barrier-1767964789.html
  5. The Paris catalog adds an exoplanet as soon as an announcement is made. NASA only lists them after they have been published in a scientific journal. "No later than" launch date as opposed to the working launch date of March. I too am very excited to see these missions inching closer. A bit miffed as well the JWST original launch date was 2013 and just last spring it was slated for October of this year. TESS has suffered similar setbacks but appears to be on track for now. I know. These are big one shot missions and its important they get everything right. If JWST lives up to its potential it should go a long ways in telling us how empty or how crowded our galaxy is. JWST is expected to give us spectroscopy of exoplanets.
  6. Not at all it's just if women are being abused because of the clothes they wear I would like to see some proof. By personal did you mean personal attack? I honestly have no idea why you would take it that way.
  7. Having raised a fine young lady there did come a time when I needed to have just that talk with her. It was appropriate that I did so. But in the context of this thread it is highly inappropriate to bring it up. I hear this often and I often ask for a real life example of a woman getting raped due to her attire. Nobody ever gives me one. Would you like to be the first?
  8. And the excuse is always "the defendant deserves a vigorous defence." So is it now time to set some rules in place to stop the victim blaming defence? I think so. https://m.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/woman-who-was-gang-raped-as-a-teenager-calls-to-st/3245561/
  9. Great vid! It is part of the PBS Eons series. I had not seen this particular one before or encountered this idea. Very interesting.
  10. It's all good. I really enjoyed your article and hope you read mine. I have been fascinated with Europa and Enceladus for some time now. They are so much more interesting to me than all the other "worlds" in our solar system. I sure would like to know what is under all that ice. Is anybody ok with us sticking a drill in? Anybody not ok with it? I mean we have already mucked up one habitable world. I am on the fence myself.
  11. In Bama no less I am proud of my of my fellow statespersons right now. I know it was not easy for any of us. Maybe a bright new day, I hope so.
  12. I said on this very page looks like unpopular candidates all the way around. I can't call you wrong.
  13. I gave you both a national poll and a poll of democrats. We are not back in 2015 and both your charts are supporting what I have said. In particular the bottom on shows that only 40 percent of her own party saw her as strongly favorable while they were out voting for her in the millions. What is that a concession of?
  14. https://www.savetheinternet.com/net-neutrality-what-you-need-know-now What concerns me is the big corporations are going to have even more control over information flow.
  15. How bout this. Typical political discussion on the internet and in the White House and in all of US Congress no one concedes anything it might show weakness.
  16. Ok I apologize and withdrawal my comment. Perhaps she is. I guess we can just each have our own truth here despite mounds of opinion polls proving me right and mounds of votes proving you right. Typical political discussion on the internet no one concedes anything it might show weakness.
  17. My original claim. In what way have I moved anything? Was Karl Rove guilty of anything in the Bush email scandal?
  18. Well some certainly give us more information. Is it really so hard for you to understand that people often vote for candidates they see as flawed simply because they see the other option as even worse. Maybe thats the problem. You need to talk to some RL people about this. Poltics on MB's tend to be warped from the people on the street in my experience. Less defensive and less rigid. Well those were servers set up by organizations so private yes but private and personal no. But close enough for whataboutism. https://www.snopes.com/g-w-bush-lost-22-million-e-mails/ I call them all guilty. How about you? Because in both cases people request information and don't get it. In HRC's case her lawyers decided what we did and did not get to see. Plus there is still more information that hasn't been handed out yet. They shouldn't have to wait years. In the Bush case there was a backup found. I think its being restored and sorted through. But yet again they shouldn't have to wait years. I will try to find what specific rule was broken. And a government employee is supposed to work out what is what not personal lawers.
  19. Not really. Ask them again and I will try to pick them up. I honestly try to answer to every point but sometimes multiple posters make the same (in my mind) point. You are not going to always get your very own customized response. I also try a little harder for those that try to answer to all my points. You don't do that. That dosent show us why they cast those votes. I am only telling you what people tell me. Many feel like they didn't have much choice. Just democrats this time during the primary. The first paragraph below is HRC and the second is Bernie. http://news.gallup.com/opinion/polling-matters/190787/clinton-image-among-democrats-new-low.aspx What the hay lets see what the republicans thought about Trump. I see unpopular candidates all the way around. Well except for Bernie and his score isnt exactly stellar. Yep thats what I hear. Why did you vote for Trump? So Clinton would not get in. Why did you vote for Clinton? So Trump would not get in. You never hear these things? Somehow I think I will not be criticized for "everything Trump must be referenced in a negative light." BTW I don't agree with the use of private emails in any way. But putting them on your own server gives so much more control over what is wanted to be kept secret. You may not agree with why these watch dog groups want this information but it shouldn't be up to me, you or HRC to decide. Trump is getting the same treatment from liberal watch dogs. Although thess groups tend to be radical they do perform a valuable service. If you (as a public servant) do not want anything embarrassing to pop up don't do/write anything embarrassing. Judicial Watch and others have been waiting two years and more for documents that should have been provided in months. https://m.washingtontimes.com/
  20. From your link http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/26/politics/white-house-private-email-kushner-trump-bannon-priebus/index.html Ok color me pleasantly surprised. I am sure now and feel even better about my vote tomorrow.
  21. http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/346339-gop-senator-to-trump-we-must-call-evil-by-its-name http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/03/politics/bob-corker-criticizes-trump-justice-department/index.html http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/364246-donors-furious-over-rncs-support-for-roy-moore-report
  22. I agree some of the accusations against her have just been made up out of thin air but others have not. Nobody is conning me. You stated very well what I am trying to illustrate. Both parties IMO are very corrupt at this point in time. Some days I think they always have been. How do we change this? No I'm pretty sure there are still active FoIA lawsuits out there and even if they are not I do know at least one group had to resubmit because the information they wanted was hidden on a private server. Because of the facts of the case and the timing of the allegations. Pleasantly surprise me and lay out a case for his guilt. It looks like the voters of Alabama will not turn a blind eye tomorrow. Moore has lost his comfortable lead and is now trailing by ten points in the latest polling. I hope it holds. Seriously Phi I think he probably is guilty but I also examine myself and find that some of the reason I feel that way is because I don't trust the uber wealthy. So please tell me why you are so sure Moore is guilty.
  23. Well we can add democrat Alcee Hastings to the list of the accused. https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5a2b39d2e4b073789f6a01bc
  24. I think its more the fact we that we do not demand decorum, honesty and civility from our politicians. If we think they can get the job done we hardly even ask for a shred of dignity from them. Trump is the prime example on the right. But I don't have to look to hard to find them on the left as well. Remember Anthony Weiner seven time democratic senator? He got caught sending women unwanted sexual pictures. He apologized and turned around and raised over 5 million dollars to run for mayor of New York. Unsurprisingly he got caught again before he had a chance to be elected. Shame on those who supported him. IMO we should voluntarily declare those who commit crimes unfit for public office.
  25. IMO guilty. HRC took the unprecedented step of setting up her own private server. This gave her a lot of control over her emails. A nice end run around the Freedom of Information Act. Once again IMO guilty. But I am far less sure in this case however it is enough that I won't vote for him. And time and time again documents come up lost or misplaced. Time and time again both her and Bill first deny everything and then as evidence comes out explain it away. Yes I do have that right under FOIA. I have the right for someone other than the politician to go through and decide what is revelant and what is not. http://news.gallup.com/poll/212705/hillary-clinton-unique-no-post-election-image-gain.aspx Perhaps we just have a different definition of popular. The courts owe them that not me. I not only have the right I have the responsibility to judge those who run for public office. It wasn't that long ago you implied Reagan had some guilt in the Iran-Contra affair. What about his rights? You have also been all over Moore et al. You didn't flip off anyones rights and neither did I.
