  1. @swansont Um, what else would someone call you, that's your name. Are you really that brittle?
  2. Or a Japanese one. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/japanese-scientists-use-approaching-typhoon-mindulle-as-part-of-typhoonshot-bid-to-generate-power/ar-AAP0fOL?ocid=BingNews No idea how plausible any of these ideas are, just something I came across.
  3. Nope. Early 2030s I reckon. Elon might disagree, but what does he know. Lol. As of August 31, 2020, federal debt held by the public was $20.83 trillion and intragovernmental holdings were $5.88 trillion, for a total national debt of $26.70 trillion.[5][6] At the end of 2020, debt held by the public was approximately 99.3% of GDP.
  4. I didn't explain myself properly, when I posted the video from my phone the video shows up, I don't need to go on twitter to see it. But on my iPad I do. Now my iPad is old (iPad 4s), so I'm just wondering if it's because my old iPad is out of date. I thought it was the site that decided how media is shown. I had a similar experience trying to post a video of Brain cells trying to attach each other in Joigus's thread. I won't post them if you have to click onto twitter. ( don't worry, I'm not planning on posting endless twitter videos)
  5. Posted video from twitter. On my phone the video shows up on the screen. From my ipad there is no video. Anyone know why? This physics video is 90 seconds long and frikken awesome. I'd love to share it. It's this,
  6. really bad weather where I am, was gonna post something, but it's all going cock eyed. Apologies.
  7. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/brazil-e2-80-99s-amazon-has-e2-80-98flipped-e2-80-99-and-now-emits-more-carbon-pollution-than-it-sinks/ar-BB1gjOir?ocid=BingNews
  8. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/new-york-ag-s-offic-opens-criminal-probe-trump-organization-n1267887 Jail time for Trump? Is this just the beginning of something bigger? Can he just hide in Florida, or can they arrest him regardless of where he lives?

  10. Wouldn't 50/50 be best. Have astronauts orbit Mars and send small reusable landers to the surface for samples. You could cover more area then.
  11. I could swear on a stack of bibles that I just posted a news item. Now it's gone. Puff, vanished. It's not in trash, just ghosted away into thin air. Did it get moved by staff? Did I even post it? edit: Ok worked it out, it's the same as studiots post. ignore the pissy remark that was here before if you read it please 😬 No problem, thanks.
  12. Depends if their innocent. I would rather die than spend the rest of my life in prison for a horrible crime I didn't commit. Some people fight, but in all honesty, I don't think I'd have the strength.
  13. I think he means the Bili Ape. Their big fuckers. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bili_ape http://scienceheathen.com/2015/01/11/bili-apes-giant-lion-eating-chimp-chimpanzee-subspecies/
  14. Western lowland gorillas occasionally eat Termites and small insects. Well that's what the internet says. My source;
  15. Gorillas eat insects. Plants can also be predators, Venus fly trap, so even plants aren't safe from you.
  16. You do realise that animals that are hunted also hunt other animals. You kill a great white shark to save a fish, who then spends most of its time looking for other fish to eat. There'll be nothing left but grass if we kill all the predators. In regards to your question, We can return to cannibalism now if you really want to. Lab grown meat, just use your own cells, nobody died so guilt free. Perfect 👌🏻 Thinking more about your question, what about deep space travel? I don't think we'll outright eat them, maybe use them as compost instead, use fruit and veg to absorb nutrients. No idea if this would work and it's petty gross but it would have to be an extreme situation to return to cannibalism and space is extreme.
  17. Will we one day explore the universe? Will we find other civilisations or animals? What do they look like? what's their planet like, the weather, scenery etc... These are the things I ponder.
  18. That's a good question, thank you for explaining that.
  19. As someone who earns about $15 an hour, I can tell you it's with great difficulty. For an adult working a 40+ hour week, $11 an hour ain't worth shit. Earning less than that is just demeaning. How are you supposed to improve your situation if you don't have money to spare? I think America needs to start adding extra import taxes to companies that don't pay their workers fair wages or pensions on top of the minimum wage increase.
  20. Inspired by the banned books thread. i read Blood Brothers . A play about twins separated at birth, lots of superstition and the differences in how different parts of society are treated IIRC. Very good, I really enjoyed it. Even thought about going to see the musical a few times. And Of Mice and Men. Novel about Lenny Small and Lenny Milton, displaced ranch workers. The teacher read most of this and did the voices, so this was really enjoyable too. Didn't really understand it until a while ago when I read an excellent summary of it on Quora. Been thinking about reading it again.
