  1. Obviously you ruled out sun burn. . . What about chemical irritation or an allergy? Obviously if is hard to say what caused it, but there are many things that can cause skin irritation. Without knowing your movements the day before it is impossible to say.
  2. Why 2037? Seems very specific. The keyboard and monitor?
  3. ha ha ha. I like the idea now of connecting the Twylek's ear stockings via suspender chains to a face veil. I think I am onto something here for sexy clothing for aliens... but it won't win any Nobel Prizes... unless there is one in the Star Wars universe for high design in alien burlesque or something. Handrails on the Death Star for the engineering and command levels? Nobel prize for safety in the workplace. The place is a death trap. .......chicken wire. A simple piece of chicken wire or some stronger mesh to cover the exhaust port on the death star. Just to stop any space debris floating down the pipe and causing a blockage.
  4. I think the very tenuous link was that the aloe juice had the appearance of alien cum and might taste similar... however, this claim was made by someone who has never even tasted aloe vera.
  5. Cool. How about the Kyber crystal in the sabre is attuned to the force and uses the Jedi's force power to confine the light in the sabre to the 3 foot of the blade (like Kylo Ren does to the blaster shot in one of the newer films at the beginning when he freezes it in the air). Do they work if the user is not force sensitive? If not then it would add weight to my idea of how they might work above. (...hmm - Grievous uses 4 of them, so no, unless he's force sensitive without really knowing it). They don't have mobile phones - maybe they'd win the Nobel prize for communications. The wheel? lol... not sure I've ever seen a wheel in Star Wars. It would surely save a lot of power pushing a cart along rather than levitating it. Nobel prize for transport. Hippocampus Stockings for Twyleks? Nobel prize for alien fashions.
  6. Nice. Does it add a 'freshness' to the salve?
  7. When I worked/seconded for a tissue company they used to put aloe vera into the baby wet wipes. I think it was for disinfecting purposes or something. They had to recall the project after too many complaints. I spoke to the mill manager about it and asked why it was canned... he replied in a very slow draw out SE English accent "well... too much aloe vera... [it was] burning the babies arses!" I am still not sure why I found the way he said it funny. I once broke a cactus and licked the sap - it was awful - very bitter. I can imagine that the sap would be unpleasant for a babies bum if too concentrated.
  8. aha! - that's your conceptual error... incredibly low probability does not equal zero probability... especially when talking about timeframes of many billions of years - that's a very long time. That isn't evolution of modern animals from a common ancestor though - that is closer to abiogenisis I think. There are speculations as to how it could have happened (of course no one can know as they were not there and it isn't really observable)... all require a very long time to happen. Hundreds of millions of years... which in the time frame of many billions, is obviously long enough as it clearly happened somehow or we would not be here.
  9. Yea - if it doesn't burn the hairs off of your tongue and leave you gasping for breath though then it has probably lost all of it's organic power and wont cure your cancer - you need to eat the leaves raw from the cactus to get the most organic power from it probably. such a heart warming post - beautiful witness for the love of the Lord.
  10. Who told you this? See what Sensei above wrote about the compounds changing through cooking and being easier to digest. Where did this 'organic power' nonsense come from? It sounds like some kind of made up new age woo. Did you drink your juice? I've never tried aloe vera - I have this idea that it is very bitter and tastes of cactus or something. I hope I'm wrong.
  11. Topical or tropical? Seriously though - what do you mean by this? What does this mean?
  12. Destroys its organic power? What do you mean by that? Treat it the same as any other juice that you have left out of the fridge for 20 hours. Sniff it and use your own discretion. I would be wary about drinking orange juice that had been left out all night - it won't kill you, but might not be that pleasant for your tummy for a day or 2 afterwards. You have to make up your own mind. In terms of medical help - we cannot give you - but this is the same as any juice that has been left out all night. It depends on the temperature of it, how old it was to start with etc as to whether it has kept well or gone off. Personally - If the smell has changed since it was left out then I'd bin it.
  13. World party it will be then. It isn't just energy though - we'd need to sort stasis out and longevity and other things for going outside the solar system I would think. Else just have AI do all the exploring... but that kinda defeats the point no? To go, boldly, where no one has gone before.
  14. If you can prove it then you could win some money. Most cases coincidence and normal thinking/empathy. We are humans and think similarly (generalisation) - sometimes we think the same things at the same time. We've discussed it over and over a few times. We'd need to discuss it there or in new thread I think.... but being honest - don't bother. ;-) https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/113154-telepathy-and-brain-waves/?tab=comments#comment-1035859 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/113154-telepathy-and-brain-waves/?tab=comments#comment-1035855 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/93076-telekinesis-telepathy-and-their-impact-on-science-absolutely-none/?tab=comments#comment-900608 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/84248-can-telepathy-aid-belief-in-a-god/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-816107 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/81564-can-geomagnetic-activity-affect-telepathy-michael-persinger/?tab=comments#comment-789719 https://www.scienceforums.net/topic/40628-telepathy-is-not-illogical/?page=4&tab=comments#comment-499878
  15. Wouldn't though? Within decades the world would be a totally different place - possibly unrecognisable. If they ever announce the breakthrough which permits safe fusion power station construction in my lifetime I will crack open a bottle of Champagne. We all should! Holy Grail of science in my life time I reckon... err, although curing death might be a be up there with it I suppose. lol.
  16. I do not know. Looking at science fiction - the kugelblitz/black hole/singularity drive looks amazing! Right now it looks totally impossible.... although - if you told a 14 year old DrP about the latest in mobile phone tech, drones or virtual reality gaming and touch screens I would have thought it all far fetched. Sequencing the DNA code and editing human DNA? Wow!... If I told my great granddad when he was a boy that we'd have planes and trips to the moon in space ships he might have thought me mad. I think that the 'theory' behind the BH drive is based on reality.... you would have to find a way to create or capture your own little black hole and keep it safely contained though, lol. I was hoping fusion would have got a little further down the line from where we are now... when I was younger I was sure we'd have got a little closer than we have. Always seems like its just 30 to 50 years off... they've been saying that for 60 years or so and we are only a little closer than we were.
  17. Pros: Reduces CO2 output globally by about *5% (* - figure pulled from somewhere dark and unpleasant) Cons: Acidifies the oceans making them uninhabitable for wildlife. The killing of the marine life will probably be a bigger catastrophe than the CO2 levels rising.
  18. So nothing about it reacting with salt then - just dissolving in water. Did I miss the bit about the salt somewhere?
  19. OK - You are talking power stations yes? Then: 1 -What percentage of the CO2 problem is caused by powerstations? 2 - what percentage of CO2 are you expecting to scrub from the exhaust of the powerstation by pumping it though the sea? 3 - what about all of the rest of the CO2 that doesn't come from power stations? 4 - how does this effect the local marine wildlife? I think you will find that your 'solution' probably doesn't amount to much more than a short term reduction. Surely it would be better to research energy sources that do not emit green house gasses during the production of power? (you are welcome to do the maths to prove me wrong... or rather - yourself right) Although powerstations might be the highest contributor to the problem (WIKI says electricity generation is highest contributor) - what about all the other contributors? You can't build every factory in the world on the coast. Even if you could - not all of the CO2 pumped into the sea would be reacted/dissolved. Also - what about other greenhouse gasses? Not all of the problem CO2 is directly pumped from factories - some is produced from farming. How are going to get all this CO2 to the coast to be pumped into the sea? (and if you could - what percentage would you need for it to be viable?). Basically, when I am asking you why you think they do not do it already, I am asking you to think about it. If it were viable then I would think they might have done it already no?.
  20. exactly - and why do you think that is?
  21. ...and why do you think this doesn't happen already? You mean power stations then? What percentage of the problem would this solve? Surely a better way of producing the energy in the first place would be to use cleaner sources (which we are doing... slowly). As others have already pointed out - you are showing how little you understand or know about the problem. What do you do for a living?
  22. How do you get the CO2 from the atmosphere and pumped under the sea? What is the conversion rate? How much gets back to the air? Describe a single one. How do we get the CO2 from the atmosphere around the world into a factory by the sea where we can pump it down into the sea? It is all very well just saying that you have a factory to do it... but what exactly is this factory doing? How did the factory get all that CO2 from the atmosphere to be able to pump it into the sea?
  23. No it didn't. How is the CO2, from all of the worlds different CO2 generation methods, collected and pumped through the sea water? You have given no information about how this CO2 is supposed to be collected from the atmosphere and pumped through the sea. How is that supposed to work? What percentage gets converted and how much returns to the atmosphere? I've invented a new machine that cures death. You put the dead body in a box and spray it with chemicals that reverse the death. I won't patent it as it is a cool thing for everyone to use - free for everyone - no more death. Why don't people start using my box that removes death? The exact mechanism can be worked out by the experts, but the idea is mine and I'll probably get a Nobel prize for it eventually or made into a saint by the church. What do you think of it?
