  1. I'm getting out of my depth here, but where do our views about what sexuality is come from and have they always the same throughout history. If this was the time of the Greeks I'm sure we'd have a different opinion about sexuality, would we even view homosexuality as being different to 'normal' sexual orientation. Note- I'm going to leave further comments to people more educated in these matters for now. It is a very interesting subject though. +1
  2. I think a lot of men lie due to social pressures. Even today saying your attracted to the same sex will result in a lot of negative responses. Maybe it's not so much men's porn, but more a natural response to seeing sex, a primeval desire within us. Edit- cross posted. Dagl1 says it much better than me.
  3. Find them sexually attractive, but not necessarily want to have sex with them. I feel that way about some of the women I know (one of my Cousins if I'm being honest, but that's another thread). I don't see why it people couldn't feel the same about the same sex.
  4. Wouldn't surprise me at all. Not sure about full on sexual attraction but definitely an appreciation for the other sex, if that makes sense. I think if there was no stigma attached, a lot of people who describe themselves as heterosexual would be more open to bisexual relationships. Think of the Greeks or Romans. Homosexuality hasn't always been frowned upon. Seems like it comes and goes depending on the type of society we live in.

  6. Fresh fruit and veg is my biggest waste, especially bananas. I'll buy some, eat 2 then never feel in the mood to eat the rest. Do it all the time. Different now though. Not wasting anything.
  7. Does this help? https://www.answers.com/Q/Why_are_membranes_described_as_proteins_in_a_sea_of_lipids
  8. How could we test it, Wouldn't we be able to detect this with our own star?
  9. Bye bye job 😡. F**k you corona. Could be worse, but still...

    1. MigL


      Job ? Who needs a job ?
      You can't spend money on entertainment anymore; everything is shut down.
      Pretty soon you won't even need money for food, as all the grocery stores will be shut.

  10. I'm no expert, but you should be taking this very seriously. Gloves, masks, regular washing of hands, social distancing should all be adhered too. Granted, it's easier to say than it is to do, do you even has access to face masks and gloves? I don't nor can I get any. The moderator Charon Y is a good person to follow on this subject. Very knowledgeable and informative. Try reading through the corona virus mega thread. Take care. Stay safe. 🙏🏻
  11. 'Antibacterial and antiviral activity are lower if no water is present'. Sorry, i misinterpreted the above statement, thought it meant more water made it less effective.
  12. 'Trump says he may soon push businesses to reopen, defying the advice of coronavirus experts' Sure glad I don't live in America right now. This guys an idiot. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/coronavirus/trump-says-he-may-soon-push-businesses-to-reopen-defying-the-advice-of-coronavirus-experts/ar-BB11BYiB?li=BBoPWjQ What should you use to dilute it instead of water?
  13. I'm not sure about the magical properties of Moscovium. It's seems more like science fiction rather than science fact. And if Bob Lazar says he's worked with a stable form then I don't trust him. it is fascinating though, I'd never heard of the 'island of stability' before. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Materials_science_in_science_fiction#Moscovium
  14. Looks like the same thing. They found Ribose, a type of sugar found in RNA. Doesn't mention it in my link. Found another story that mentions it and also says; https://www.poandpo.com/in-the-meantime/first-extraterrestrial-protein-found-inside-meteorite-232020498/
  15. Fuck, that's fascinating and slightly terrifying at the same time.
  16. I've watched that documentary and it's pretty good actually. It didn't come across as a conspiracy theory documentary, but saying that, it is an Oliver Stone produced film. It's a shame the OP didn't want to discuss anything, could of been an interesting thread.
  17. Just a thought, but Why not try it yourself. Use a football and a beach ball. Roll them down a slope and see where they stop.
  18. It's an interesting video. Surprised to hear that science doesn't study UFO's. Can't really get my head around that to be honest. How can you not want to know what UFO's are. Especially Scientists. But it's kind of exciting if you think about it, imagine what we could learn if science really made a effort to study them. Even if they weren't aliens it would still be fascinating to find out what they are.
  19. Ok complete guess and I know your looking for someone more qualified, but surely the lighter one would go further due to more friction on the heavier one.
  20. Could it be a trick question?
  21. A bit off topic, but Tom Hanks would be the perfect lead. Apparently him and his wife have tested positive. Hope he recoverers, He's one of your greatest actors.
  22. I don't think it's that far fetched to be honest. Alot more effective than a suicide bombing. Easier to get it into a country than a bomb. Think of a 'lone wolf', catch coronavirus and just go around leaving your germs everywhere. Dont think it would be as easy or as effective as it sounds, but it does makes me wonder. 100 years till the end of humanity is a being a bit pessimistic though.

  24. Check this out. Radiooooo.com Music from 1900-now, from anywhere in the world (almost). Just click on a decade then a country. http://radiooooo.com/# To change the song, change the mood setting- slow fast weird. It's in Beta mode so it's not perfect.
