    It makes you want to weep.

    I'm not weeping. I'm laughing. I guess Apple knew what they were doing with their magnetic electrical attachments. Are bio-luminescent humans the solution?

    RIP, Stephen Hawking.

    He'll be remembered for quite some time, as his theories are mentioned in the news. Although Steven is no longer eligible for a Nobel, the scientists who confirm his theories will probably be in the running for a Nobel.

    RIP, Stephen Hawking.

    The world has lost a true Genius, and an inspiration to those who, in another day, would have been marginalized and shuffled off to a life of quiet solitude behind closed doors. Courage takes many forms, and to say he was courageous is an understatement as few have conquered ALS to the extent that he did. I hope that his final wishes included having his family approve of postmortem guest TV appearances. As Professor Proton appeared to Sheldon in times of need, maybe Steven can do the same. Howard's remote control model of Steven in his wheel chair might one day allow Steven to speak again if only to tell a joke.

    Would you vote for America to join the EU?

    The EU is like the United States under the Articles of Confederation. The Countries of the EU are like the States, except that they have embassies and Ambassadors around the world, and EACH is in the United Nations. Germany has a French embassy, and France has a German embassy, and neither has a Texas embassy, or embassy in Texas. To become more like the EU, each state would have to build embassies in every other state (for starters), which would help to Create Jobs.

    Limits of Time.

    Time will just stop. Time requires movement, and when everything is consumed by the Singularity, there's no room to move around.

    Is farting funnier than burping?

    We're on different sides of the pond. Both terms are defined in the Urban Dictionary. I don't know which side of the pond is responsible for this! dutch oven The act of trapping a person under bed covers after releasing vile ass fumes

    Is farting funnier than burping?

    Q. Is farting funnier than burping? A. Yes!! First of all, Silent But Deadly isn't even in the Burp repertoire. The Fart has a richer acoustical palette. The moisture variations alone leave the Fart in a class by itself. Farts are just more flexible than burps. You can Fart and sneeze at the same time. You can't Burp and sneeze at the same time. The Fart makes the Burp second rate. Think of all the things you can do while you're Farting that you can't do while you're Burping, and you'll see that there are more opportunities for coincidental humor.

    That's an amusing factoid.

    India just launched a record-breaking 104 satellites into space from one rocket https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/india-just-launched-a-record-breaking-104-satellites-into-space-from-one-rocket/2017/02/15/e705626c-64ff-4b46-a05a-655cfd3cdb7c_story.html “This is a great moment for each and every one of us. Today we have created history,” said the project’s manager, B. Jayakumar afterward. The total number of satellites far outstripped the previous record — 37 simultaneously sent into space by Russia in 2014.

    The topic is Amusing Factoids. Here's an amusing factoid for you. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4165902/Trumpocalypse-preppers-buy-underground-shelters-Texas.html People on all sides of the political spectrum are gearing up for an impending apocalypse, if a Texas bunker manufacturer is to be believed. Following the election of Donald Trump, the Doomsday Clock reached two-and-a-half minutes to midnight - the closest to an apocalypse since 1953. And Rising S Company in Murchison, 75 miles southeast of Dallas, is offering willing and able patrons livable underground bunkers. The company offers shelters from a 96-square-foot abode for two to the aptly named 'Aristocrat' which can sleep 44 people and includes 10 individual master bedrooms.

    You haven't been paying attention. Our current President is all mouth. He can only use superlatives in reference to himself; unfortunately, they aren't fact based. This is not the forum for Politics. Please refrain from trying to turn it into one.

    That's an amusing factoid.

    Ancient human ancestor was a big mouth http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/sciencefair/2017/01/30/ancient-human-ancestor-big-mouth/97243458/ The earliest known human ancestor was a microscopic sea creature with a huge mouth, scientists say. The freaky-looking thing lived about 450 million years ago and now takes the prize as humanity's earliest ancestor, according to a study released Monday .... The animal probably lived between grains of sand on the seabed. Its features were well-preserved in the fossil record — and intriguingly, the researchers did not find any evidence that the animal had an anus. This means it may have both eaten and excreted through its mouth.

    http://www.techtimes.com/articles/193469/20170119/nasa-mission-to-send-probe-to-metal-asteroid-worth-10-000-quadrillion.htm NASA Mission To Send Probe To Metal Asteroid Worth $10,000 Quadrillion Besides being one of the largest asteroids that astronomers know of and one of the most massive objects in the asteroid belt, the 200-kilometer-wide 16 Psyche is different from other asteroids with rocky and icy bodies because it is primarily made of metals. The asteroid contains iron, nickel and possibly some rare Earth metals such as platinum, cobalt and gold. The composition of this object is so valuable the asteroid could be worth a lot of money if it gets hauled to our planet with a price tag. Elkins-Tanton said that the iron found in this body alone could be worth about $10,000 quadrillion, an amount the whole world's economy can't certainly afford since the gross world product in 2015 was only about $73.7 trillion. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- If they take the Gold, the price of Gold on earth would plummet.

    Science Stories in the news Season 10

    House Science Panel Adds Climate-Denying Members Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), “I believe that climate change in this country is largely leftist propaganda to change the way Americans live and create more government obstruction and intrusion in our lives,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) “I do not believe climate change is occurring,” . “I do not think that humans have a significant impact on climate. The federal government should stop regulating and stomping on our economy and freedoms in the name of a discredited theory.” The committee has influence on climate research and environmental regulations. It has jurisdiction over $40 billion in federal budgets, and it oversees NASA, the Department of Energy, U.S. EPA, the National Science Foundation, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Some of the other new GOP members have acknowledged that humans play a role in changing the climate, but they stop short of saying it justifies stronger environmental protections. Republican Rep. Neal Dunn, a surgeon from Panama City, Fla., has said the United States should not follow “global warming alarmists” like President Obama. He said the science is too uncertain to justify environmental protections that could stifle industry. FOLLOW the link for full srtivcle.

    That's an amusing factoid.

    Binary Stars To Merge, Explode In 2022 https://www.yahoo.com/news/binary-stars-merge-explode-2022-071048722.html Two stars, which are actually a contact binary (two stars that orbit each other, and also share a common atmosphere), about 1,800 light-years away in the Cygnus constellation, will merge and explode around 2022, and the event, which will lead to the formation of a red nova, will be visible to the naked eye when it occurs. ... After the merger and explosion, the resultant red nova star will appear in a previously dark spot of the sky and be visible as part of the constellation Cygnus, in the recognizable Northern Cross star pattern. Everybody, get your eyes naked.

    You're an extraterrestrial. How would you conquer Earth?

    Oxygen is an element. It's plentiful. There's CO2 in the atmosphere, as well as O. Water is H2O, and O can be dissolved in the water, but the temperature of the water can cause it to be released into the atmosphere. I'm not a chemist, but any reaction with Oxygen will not destroy it. The Ice on the asteroid contains Oxygen. The bacteria would probably generate CO2. Life forms based on elements other than Carbon are possible. Ecosystems based on Chemosynthesis exist near volcanic vents in the deep ocean. An alien civilization that would choose Earth is probably from an environment very similar to the Earth. The distribution of elements could be different, but the life forms would have evolved in a similar manner based on Form being shaped by the environment. An Oxygen poor environment on earth produces humans who have larger chests. Cold environments produce more compact humans with stouter arms and legs to preserve heat. There is enough raw material in our Solar System to allow them to refuel or build out without disturbing Earth, if we aren't a close match. If we are a close match, we're toast. Your idea is interesting, but I don't think Oxygen is the key.
