    this is interesting for me because I don't believe that is magically mathematical, there surely must be some sort of logic, some reason or reasons why it is mathemathical.

    So why do you think it is mathematical? If why is too philosophical, how is the universe getting reality to conform to mathemathics?

    Maybe I've misunderstood you, but are you suggesting God is responsible for these mysteries?

    So, when I was around 8-9 years old my older brother tortured me by forcing me to watch scary movies. I still vividly remember the dream I had almost 20 years later. After I awoke from the dream I had 3 deep knife marks on my arm with no explanation of how they got there. I had short nails which I tried scratching myself afterwards to make sure I couldn't have done it to myself, which I couldn't. How is this possible?

    What makes you think they were knife marks? Were you bleeding? I've woken with red lines on me before, usually my face, I've always thought it was just the way I slept.

    Unless it was Freddie Kruger...:unsure:

  3. "On Wednesday cameras go live with the Trump impeachment hearings"

    Could be on repeat. I tuned in to the impeachment hearings last night on BBC, they were 'live' apparently. Took a while to realise they weren't.

    Unlike solar panels and solar cells, which rely on photovoltaic technology for the direct generation of electricity, the hybrid device captures heat from the sun and stores it as thermal energy. It addresses some of the issues that have stalled wider-scale adoption of solar power, suggesting an avenue for using solar energy around-the-clock, despite limited sunlight hours, cloudy days and other constraints.

    Are there any essential oils that are known to be perfectly safe for topical (or oral) application by humans?

    I am looking for a topical anti-microbial to use in a hair loss regimen. Tea tree oil has been used effectively in a study I read, but I'm concerned about toxicity, so I'm looking for an alternative. I'm looking for something that could safely be applied to the scalp.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might look into as a possibility?

    Sorry, but I think your just going to have to accept your going bald. Hair transplants work but aren't cheap. Wayne Rooney :-


    Of course there are other methods :-


    Im starting to thin a little myself (down the middle). I'll just cut it short it when it gets too thin. Can't you just do the same? it's really no big deal you know. Sometimes trying to fix it makes it worse (see above). But if it's really bothering you, you should speak to a dermatologist, but again, it won't be cheap.

    Like mistermack says, if you can find something that works and is cheap, you'll have so much money you won't give a crap about hair loss.

  6. Your probably correct, and you probably know a lot more about it than me, but I don't agree that Obama is entirely responsible, there's a lot of people with blood on their hands over this, not just Obama.

  7. Nope. I put this war on terror and all the stuff connected to it on those two. Not all but the biggest culprits are these two.

    So it was Obama then, nothing to do with Isis, Russia, UK, Al Qaeda, as well as several other terror groups and probably more. It was just Obama, of course it was.

    What these countries are like now, makes the previous era of the Asad and Gadafi seem like the good old days. 


    Those pictures should be labelled "before and after Obama". 

    Anybody else want liberating ? 

    Don't you mean before and after Bush and Blair. It's these two that started this in the first place with the Iraq invasion.

    You can't dump this on Obama, he might have handled it poorly, but he's not responsible.

  9. Found this, not sure if it helps. (Artificial preservatives). There's another 3 category's  on the site (Antioxidants, sequestrants and FDA regulation). Not sure about copyright so didn't post them. Here's the link..


    Category 1: Antimicrobials1,2,3 

    (there was meant to be some information here, but it won't post it, maybe to big).


  10. Found this, apparently google is my friend too :)


    First of a sound of that magnitude would require 1098 watts/meter2 . That is an absolutely insane amount of power, far in excess of what we can produce, and is many of orders of magnitude greater than what a supernova creates. So we don’t have to worry about it actually happening. But, now, how would that create a black hole. By E=mc2. Put enough energy into a small enough area and it would be the equivalent of putting mass in that area, causing immense gravity. With energy as great as 1100 dB, it would create enough gravity to cause a black hole to form, and an incredibly large one at that.

    More at link if your interested...



  11. Just read this on quora, Can someone tell me if it's true, seems abit far fetched to me. Is 1100 dB really that loud?


    A sound of 1100 dB would have so much energy that it would create a supermassive black hole that would destroy the currently observable universe



    The answer is unfeasibly loud, and no, it can’t create a black hole that big. At 1100 db it creates a 5 kg black hole with the same volume as a neutron. First, this is not meant seriously. It's just physicists having fun with maths.

    Ok, found this on the same site.

    But can sound really create a black hole? Or is it just 'in theory' , i.e. On paper yes, but not in real life.

    Legendary English biologist Charles Darwin believed that life might have formed in a warm shallow pool of water, with proper chemical makeup. Most of the research conducted all across these years was based on this theory, but a new study conducted by experts at University College of London has proposed a different theory.

    Everything we think we know about the shape of the universe could be wrong. Instead of being flat like a bedsheet, our universe may be curved, like a massive, inflated balloon, according to a new study.

    That's the upshot of a new paper published today (Nov. 4) in the journal Nature Astronomy, which looks at data from the cosmic microwave background (CMB), the faint echo of the Big Bang. But not everyone is convinced; the new findings, based on data released in 2018, contradict both years of conventional wisdom and another recent study based on that same CMB data set...

    The difference between a closed and open universe is a bit like the difference between a stretched flat sheet and an inflated balloon, Melchiorri told Live Science. In either case, the whole thing is expanding. When the sheet expands, every point moves away from every other point in a straight line. When the balloon is inflated, every point on its surface gets farther away from every other point, but the balloon's curvature makes the geometry of that movement more complicated.

    "This means, for example, that if you have two photons and they travel in parallel in a closed universe, they will [eventually] meet," Melchiorri said.

    In an open, flat universe, the photons, left undisturbed, would travel along their parallel courses without ever interacting...

  14. To be fair, Al-Baghdadi didn't seem like the negotiating type. ISIS are nothing like the IRA. It's like comparing a street gang to Loz Zetas, in reality, their in a different league. Much more dangerous.

    If their not willing to work towards peace, then there's not much else to do. Attack is the best form of defence, as they say.

    I don't think it's the best strategy long term, but there's only so much we can do if they insist on planning atrocities.

  15. It's 'character building' 

    Isn't this how everybody does it? This is how we move stuff in all the places I've worked. They'll generally get the staff to move as much as possible. I know were being paid, but the principle's still the same, it's cheaper, and we also know what everything is and what needs to be kept together, stuff like that. No-one likes doing it, but it makes sense.

    Any help?

  17. Some news. I'm not trying to make a statement, it's just something related to the OP.


    The Islamic State jihadist group, which has claimed several terrorist attacks in different African countries on Thursday confirmed the death of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and named his replacement as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi.
