  2. Incredible 'piglet squid' caught on camera

    Fake news, Taiwan failed to number one and tried to blame Xi ~
  3. I'm halfway through reading this and I had absolutely no idea they had these problems with their gear on the moon! It would've been so scary! You just don't realise how dangerous it is/was for these people to go off into space....not knowing if they were going to make it back. If some alien was going to be there If creatures were on the moon You know what I mean! I thought Buzz's socks were VERY flambuoyant INDEED! Very scary!
  4. All we need is two goal posts at each end, and we can start a game of college American football. Looks more like a football stadium, where the mountains represent the stands. Where are the hash marks? However, I think Ulf, God rest his soul, had too vivid a imagination. Perhaps a little 90 degree turn would put it in the correct perspective for the Big 10 of Atlantis. Critias dialogue excerpt, Jowett's translation. Nevertheless I must say what I was told. It was excavated to the depth of a hundred feet, and its breadth was a stadium everywhere; it was carried round the whole of the plain, and was ten thousand stadia in length. It received the streams which came down from the mountains, and winding round the plain and meeting at the city, was there let off into the sea.Further inland, likewise, straight canals of a hundred feet in width were cut from it through the plain, and again let off into the ditch leading to the sea: these canals were at intervals of a hundred stadia, and by them they brought down the wood from the mountains to the city, and conveyed the fruits of the earth in ships, cutting transverse passages from one canal into another, and to the city. Twice in the year they gathered the fruits of the earth—in winter having the benefit of the rains of heaven, and in summer the water which the land supplied by introducing streams from the canals. Definition of transverse (Entry 1 of 2) 1 : acting, lying, or being across : set crosswise 2 : made at right angles to the long axis of the body Transverse direction. Literally, "across," usually signifying a direction or plane perpendicular to the direction of working. Additionally, the diagonal straight lines meeting at the city, are nowhere remotely indicative of something that is round, and winding round the plain.
  5. Climate Change is a Hoax

    Dream on. Its a basic physics fact that the path length in the atmosphere is halved by re-emissions and absorption within the atmosphere. Its what the original link supplied discusses. But no one has to prove anything to you since your've shown yourself totally immune to evidence and have no remorse when your shown to be factually incorrect - so why bother. As a case in point, is the Arctic a desert or desert like ? Br Cornelius
  6. Did you mean there was a pic taken of Bill Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea's wedding? I know she was invited to the wedding in 2011 I think it was? But apparently Bill had cut ties with Epstein prior to then. Funny how they all decided to keep in touch with Ghislaine. You'd think she'd be somewhat tarnished after hanging out with Epstein all those years and him being a pedophile. It just blows my mind.

    You can't because I'd rip whatever you present to shreds. The observations don't support your position.

    Ah, so the fire brigade will be invited too?

    I can but I am going to leave you guessing how you got it wrong. Br Cornelius
  10. Cyperpunk 2077

    Yes, I totally agree. CDPR did an amazing job on the Witcher series, all of them really. Even though Cyberpunk 2077 isn't the kind of genre (futuristic?) I really like to play, I'm trusting them purely because of their reputation from the Witcher games. They've got a lot riding on it so I hope it works out well for them.
  11. Cyperpunk 2077

    I worry about the hype surrounding it. I feel like if they keep hyping it up so much, when we finally get to play it, we'll be disappointed. So I've found myself tending to avoid reading every single article on it out there. I've prepurchased it and I'll just wait it out now till next April. Then I'll play it and think I was kinda surprised they got Keanu actually. I wasn't expecting that at all.

    You can't evidence your 50% statement.
  13. Climate Change is a Hoax

    I am telling you that is the basic physics. Br Cornelius
  14. Climate Change is a Hoax

    I mean you can scream that to the heavens but I'm not seeing your evidence for that yet.
  15. Climate Change is a Hoax

    Wrong. It accounts for 50% of all CO2 IR absorptions and emissions. Put another way, if it didn't happen CO2 IR forcing would halve. Br Cornelius
  16. This is Harrison Schmitt from Apollo 17. This was the last lunar landing flight. This is Charlie Duke from Apollo 16. There is one more still living who wasn't there and in the picture.

    Not in anyway we have discussed here.

  19. Oh yes, there was and still is so much negativity surrounding the casting of the series itself. In the beginning, Lauren Hissrich (the head screenwriter hired to adapt from the original books) said she wanted to ensure she stayed canon to the story (books) and to make sure fans were happy with that. Well, the first red flag that made fans go absolutely crazy was when they sent out a casting call for the character of Cirilla. In the books, Cirilla (Geralt, the main protagonist's ward/adopted daughter) is described as female, fair coloured skin with ash blonde hair and blue/green eyes. The casting call Netflix asked for was a BAME. For those of you not familiar with BAME, it stands for Black, Asian and/or Minority Ethnicity and/or Non-White person. This caused fans to go BERSERK. So much so, that Lauren Hissrich had to go "offline" from twitter for a few days simply due to the massive abuse hurled at her through tweets from angry fans etc. No, I was not one of these fans as I'd like to think I have a tad more self restraint than to carry on like that. Lauren eventually came back "online" to apologise to fans and tried to ensure everyone that she would make them proud whilst staying canon to the books themselves. Fans have gotten angry over just about every single character cast. It has just gotten worse as time has gone on. For myself, I know I found the casting strange for another sorceress in the books called Fringilla Vigo. She is a relative of Cirilla's and she is definitely not black, although has dark hair and not much else is mentioned re her description. However, they've cast a black female actress called Mimi Ndiweni in this part and I'm interested in seeing how they will incorporate her into the storyline as Ciri's relative or perhaps not mention the family ties at all. It was disappointing as I had faith that Hissrich essentially promised she would keep to the books, but as I said, the description is vague and depends how one interprets it I guess. In the end, I think they did a wonderful job of casting Cirilla. A lovely young actress called Freya Allan is playing Ciri and imho she's just how I'd imagined Ciri to look. The character of Triss will be played by Anna Shaffer who I will be interested in seeing how they change her looks entirely as Triss is described as richly coloured red hair (like very, very red), with fair coloured skin, slight freckles and green eyes. The actress has the freckles at this stage, so a hair colour change and contacts should help complete the look. For Yennefer, I did mention in an earlier post that I was concerned at who they'd cast for someone who is described as having an unearthly beauty of raven coloured hair with blue/violet eyes and fair coloured skin. She is also described as having a nose that is not quite right, when looking at her, it seems just a little bit too long, but it does not detract from her beauty. She is diminutive in stature and always wears black. She is a powerful sorceress and although she is beautiful in the present state, her past growing up was as a different looking person altogether. She was someone treated incredibly awful by her own family because of the way she looked. I think they've nailed it when I look at how they've made the actress reflect Yen's colouring. She has the blue/violet eyes, the dark hair and her skin looks lovely. She is played by an actress of Indian heritage called Anya Chalotra. I'm just happy they're adapting the books into a tv series and I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it gains some new fans that weren't aware of The Witcher prior and that the hardcore fans come around and see that it wasn't all that bad. I do apologise for raving about this. It's just something I absolutely love!
  20. Dr. Steven Hawking one of the most brilliant minds of this century, has made it clear that making Alien contact is not something we should attempt to do. Simply because any Alien race that could hypothetically receive and understand a signal we sent out into space and then have the ability to travel to our location. Would be so advanced that we would appear very very primitive to them and this fact alone could lead to our destruction intentionally or by accident. All the space movies we grew up watching are from a human perspective, however, in reality we have no idea how an Alien race would perceive us. Just like here on earth there is good and bad, I suspect that this also may hold true throughout the universe. JIMO
  21. Actually he needs to disprove 6 Apollo missions. They went from Apollo 11 through Apollo 17. Apollo 13 had to be aborted as anyone who's seen the movie knows. The others all landed on the moon. That makes a total of 12 men who have walked on the moon. http://mentalfloss.com/article/12379/12-men-who-walked-moon

    I love it when he uses that. It always serves as a nice reminder of how crazy and fanatical he is. It represents him perfectly.
  23. Iran tries to hijack vessel British Heritage

    No one here who is arguing for war seems to have the slightest understanding of what a war with Iran would mean. It would make Vietnam look like The Falklands by comparison - and would ultimately end with the same result for the invading country/countries. It would be utterly catastrophic to all countries involved, not to mention the world economy. Some people seem to think it would be a quick case of shock and awe and a few days later Iran would be bending the knee. In reality, if Iran was attacked, the first thing they would do would be to launch thousands of missiles at Israel (who they rightly see as orchestrating this conflict) - which would be utterly devastating for that country - then you would have a war of attrition in terrain like Afghanistan, in an area larger than Afghanistan and Iraq combined, with 80 million people (the vast majority of whom are hugely supportive of their leaders) you'd have to contain. This is before considering the ways in which Russia or other countries could become involved. The armchair warriors who are frothing at the bit to see their countrymen die in an unnecessary war is more of the same disgusting nonsense from people who think the world is a game of Civilisation or Total War. And all of this is happening - when the problem had been solved by Obama's administration in what is probably the best bit of foreign policy and diplomacy to come out of the US in half a century - because the deal was broken by Trump purely to spite Obama.

  25. Nearly Everything The Mainstream Media Told

    Honestly, it doesn't matter what you thought, by making a comment like you claimed you did concerning Jewish people it proves you had preconceived notions somewhere in your mind. I have never made a racist comment to anyone on this forum, I am intelligent enough to know how foolish thinking any race is superior to another is. I also would never use any term that lumps a race together like you said you have done. Now that is the way I was taught, and I am proud of it. Now for you to say my beliefs are taught a certain way is really even more foolish because you know nothing about me. To say that more and more people are mindless and not thinking critically and honestly is just another way to lump people together as a group. By trying to say that my comments are racist by bring up his wife's race in the context I did is just another foolish diversion away from the topic on your part. To say you never said Jewish people we're inferior is true you havent yet that I know of however, by making the statement you said you made is still racist because it identifies a trait which covers that entire group of people. Which anyone who thinks clearly would never do, because no race of people have traits that are exactly alike, just like no race of people think alike. I think you should stop being defensive and look at the definition of racism so that you can better understand what being racist means. This really isn't about me or you it about an epidemic that is world wide, so being able to identify it when it rears its ugly head in your presents is very important. take care.

    so all of a sudden you're all for the UK obeying instructions from the EU then? And it seems Boris "Bojo" Johnson and Jeremy "Huntface" Hunt are as well.
  27. nope, alien contact short of wild sci fi coming true likely will never happen, a bit sad to me since i do believe the universe is vast enough to have other intellegent life, yet we will never meet them or even know for sure.
