  1. There is the problem of radioactive isotopes being released into the flue glasses. I have read that over time a coal fired plant releases significant amounts of uranium and thorium into the air. If you are flowing flue gas through a greenhouse would it not result radioactive contamination over time?
  2. Best car commercial ever! Why we really never went back to the moon!
  3. Put your computer in a metal trash can and ground the can to the earth. Actually modern military equipment is hardened against EMP.
  4. No they do not, that is what I am trying to figure out... but in the spirit of full disclosure the paper doesn't say that STL warp drive do not use impossible things like negative mass or negative energy. In fact it specifically says STL warp drives do indeed need these things. So I am back to square one, Sabine Hossenfelder did indeed include this paper with her Video, she always does, I just didn't read far enough. So the hunt for the possible STL warp drive goes on.
  5. Bingo! That is what I am trying to find out! I did send a question to Sabine but she has yet to answer.
  6. Then again I am not talking about the Alcubierre FTL warp drive. I am seeking info on the possibility of a slower than light warp drive.
  7. In the OP I pointed out that Sabine mentioned it in the video posted with this thread. I have looked high and low for some info on this but so far only vague mentions about STL warp drive not needing the impossible things that FTL warp drives need. I am hoping that enough of our fellows here at SFN will help me in this endeavor to find out more about this STL drive. Everyone is fixated on FTL but we are not even close to having a reasonably fast way to travel within our own solar system. I am looking for more than just a dismissal... I am looking for help in investigating this idea of STL warp drive... I find it odd that it is mentioned by some scientists but the focus on FTL warp drives is so dominant that any info about STL warp drive, possibility or impossibility, is difficult to find.
  8. Evidently no one is interested but I think it's a mistake to concentrate on FTL warp drives that need things like negative energy and mass to operate and ignore slower than light possibilities. A STL warp type drive would revolutionise travel within the solar system and allow for the system wide exploitation of resources, reasonable travel times within the solar system, and possible STL travel between the nearest stars in years instead of thousands of years.
  9. I have to admit my apartment is almost like it was designed to be a fallout shelter! I live on the bottom floor, the floor above me is concrete, my bathroom is in the center of the apartment, it is big enough to hole up in for a couple weeks, I could fill the bathtub with water to run the toilet, I have 6 cases of bottled water already stored there, I could set up shelving units to hold canned foods and my apartment faces away from potential strike zones ie the state ports, a military terminal, and a nuclear power plant.
  10. I was going back through my posts and found this one, evidently I was distracted by "life and death" and forgot to follow up on it. Anyone have any ideas about slower than light warp drive?
  11. I think this illustrates just how many nuclear bombs have been detonated since their advent in 1945.
  12. Around here they give funerals for civil war graves and they also played at military funerals.
  13. hey... at least the sun is real 🤪
  14. My allowance was being allowed to eat and have a roof over my head. I worked for neighbors for free but generally they would give me a quarter an hour or something like that. I bought my first gun from putting up hay one summer when I was 12 and my first motorcycle from working at a grocery store and my first piece of pizza from working for myself. I did give my sons money from time to time for helping but they both made money by playing trumpet at funerals and later working in grocery stores.
  15. I live near a state port, a military terminal and a nuclear power plant... so long, fair well, al vita Zein.
  16. O hope you guys are right, I now live in an apartment and would probably not survive a 1st strike.
  17. I am beginning to hear serious concerns about the possible use of nuclear weapons by Russia in it's invasion of Ukraine. Is this a serious threat or is it just more war mongering by Russia in it's desperation to take over Ukraine? Some people whom I respect seem to think this is a likely endgame for Putin others seem to think nukes would not make much of a difference at this point since the troops are so widely dispersed. This would seem to put a target on cities if they were used at all. Russia seems to be in chaos after the drafting of civilians was instituted with hundreds of thousands of men leaving the country. Are nukes and the threat of nukes Putin's last chance at winning the war in Ukraine and would this drag the rest of the world into an exchange of nukes?
  18. I actually restart it once a week seperate from those things.
  19. Mine is a tower not a lap top but i will keep that in mind. I restart at least once a week.
  20. Believe it or not when i logged on this morning it allowed me to go online with no problems, it was still slower than it should have been by quite a bit but it did work. My computer skills are limited so i don't really understand what you are talking about but I'll try your idea once I review the links you suggested. It's been decades since i did anything in safe mode. Thank you again for helping me, I am not sure what it was I did to help the situation, I tried several things, I am not even sure it was anything I did. oh oh oh, I did go to task manager and shut down what appeared to be several versions of chrome running at the same time.
  21. Thank you Sensei for your help. I am not sure what to do next but as you probably know my computer skills are limited to using it not fixing it. If I can't figure it out I'll have to switch to a laptop my wife left, Again I do thank you for your help. Did it Did it as well. I'm not sure what you mean here. Not sure what you mean. Did that as well.
