    Climate Change: Fact and Denial

    Nope. Electromagnetic effects (EMF pulse) would have fried the camera. A neutron bomb .....I would guess the gamma rays alone would have cooked the photographer. Besides, the fireball was slow to gain maximum brightness....a nuke is instantaneous. My was an ammo dump full of...

    The Black-Eyed Kids

    High strangeness indeed. I feel there is something to the story. Demons, inter dimensional beings, aliens, *fill-in-the-blank*..........whatever it is, I think there is something to it. BTW, I don't go for the pranking either. Being unreasonably terrified and disappearing quickly makes me...

    The Black-Eyed Kids

    There's a lot of anecdotal evidence, well really testimonials, of people encountering these BEK. Do we just discount this as urban legend for lack of evidence? Could kids be pranking gullible adults with fake cosplay contact lenses? If you take the stories at face value, the kids instill a...

    Official funny stuff

    It might just be my physiology, but since I gave up almost all (well, most) carbs, sugar, and severely limited my salt intake I feel like Superman. I only eat fresh veggies and fruits, nothing canned. 6oz of lean beef or chicken (no antibiotics or steroids), boiled eggs, yogurt, kefir, and...

    What was Lost when the Great Library of Alexandria was destroyed?

    The Cost of Landing on a Comet

    Geez dude. I didn't say it would be a utopia. But it will more than likely solve some problems. Will others be created? Most assuredly. But I can't see humans not growing up a little bit. I mean, survival would mean cooperation more than we have now.

    The Cost of Landing on a Comet

    Well, one may need to come before the other. Perhaps mobile self-sufficient societies may be just what humanity needs to grow up. No resource wars would be necessary. You may need to treat my ideas as suspect, because I am biased and an idealist. To me, living off world would have such a major...
