Re: I Blamed It On Putin

A republic is a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch. A democracy is a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

I think the math behind the physics of buoyancy has been around and accepted for eons. The pepper in my Italian dressing isn't the most scientific method of demonstrating the principle, but it is subject to the same laws of gravity as is a Kitty Hawk class aircraft carrier. The mass of the object is...

Re: Good Vibrations

I do recall your earlier comments which is why I posted this article. It "resonated" with what you said before. :mrgreen: I studied astrology and for many years interpreted horoscopes. Nobody really has a good explanation for why it works, when it works, but there seems to be a consensus that vibrat...

Good Vibrations

Not those from the Beachboys, but those in and around our head explain consciousness to certain researchers. I ran across an article that touches on the subject of everything in the universe vibrating, and in some cases synchronously. It's the sync among the vibrations in our head that leads to cons...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

The thought experiment of dropping an object into the ocean to see how far it sinks or floats is interesting. My initial thought was that it does one or the other, i.e., sinks all the way every time, or, floats all the time. I came to this conclusion intuitively because I often wondered why the flak...

Re: I Blamed It On Putin

The act of voting by the citizens of a country, state, county, city, village, or any geopolitical entity is about as fundamental to democracy as one can get. Tampering with the votes or repressing voting rights should be akin to something like high treason because it's a direct attack on our system ...

Re: I Blamed It On Putin

I think the whole thing could be simplified by not registering voters ahead of time. On the day of the election bring some proof of residence along with a photo ID and voila! You're in. The thing is that today's facial recognition technology could make voter fraud damned near impossible, but then ha...

Re: babysitting

My wife's mom lived in a "small town" of 10,000 people. She thought it was cozy, and I thought it was sparsely populated. I now live among 84,000 others and consider it comfortable. The Internet here is all land line and marvelous. Satellite is great for remote locations, but kind of dependent upon ...

Re: Teenager With Tourettes

Laughter is the best medicine, so they way. I think the gal in the video has the right idea, but I also suspect she goes through a lot of misery off camera.

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

Auroras are cool, and I only have a vague notion of why we see what we see. So, I'll make up something that sounds plausible. The light from the aurora travels along the lines of electro magnetism that is inherent to the earth. These magnetic lines run from the north pole down to the south pole, as ...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

Fundamentally you and I share some strong suspicions, if not beliefs, about Genesis. It's obvious that you have studied the Bible, or at least one of it's versions, in much greater detail than I ever attempted. You certainly have retained more than I did from what I was taught. The historical implic...

Re: I Blamed It On Putin

Georgia made headlines in recent weeks with its numerous cases of voter suppression to the tune of several hundred thousand votes. I believe a suit has been filed to try and resolve THAT issue. The Kemp/Stacey face off for governor seems like a case of local tampering, but the article I cited above ...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

I have to admit that I never did understand how color is produced, which is how I got on the topic in this thread. Not knowing the exact mechanism doesn't mean I don't understand what I've been told. It's been a long time since I've been in high school, but I think that is the first time I was told ...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

An electromagnetic field varying it's field strength at a frequency rate of 98.7MHz/second clearly is a theoretical possibility. It's one of an infinite number of possible events across the entire radio frequency spectrum, but I have my doubts that it occurs spontaneously in nature. The analogy woul...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

You're right about the vibrations and the senses. In the universe there is matter and there is energy, all of which exists due to molecular motion. When the temperature gets to be absolute zero, some theorists say all motion stops and thus no energy is produced. Quantum physicists suggest the atom w...

Yes, that was your second post for the day, but who's counting? :mrgreen: The Dixie Stampede background show is a no-brainer.

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

One day, not very many years ago, I decided I wanted to photograph a rainbow up close. I rigged up the garden hose to spray a fine mist into the sunlight and, voila! Until that little experiment I thought I knew how rainbows were created. My idea was that the water droplets changed color depending o...
