  1. Past hour
  2. Let's talk history

    Would tend to agree. Anecdotes: In my many years of working with traditional elders (including Mide'), both personally and professionally, the topic of a lost "high language" has surfaced on more than one occasion. The language is considered to have been "universal" and allowed the more "elite" to communicate with dis-similar language groups. One less-than-authoritative "new elder" considered the "high language" to be spoken. However, the input of others has prompted me to doubt this claim. The utilization of sign language amongst some central groups still exists in certain social situations. Example: From across a campfire or crowded room, catch the eye of a female. Form the modern "peace" sign with the index and middle fingers. Place the fingers in a horizontal manner against the bridge of the nose and drag to the side of the face. Rotate the horizontal sign to a vertical position. This act is performed in a quick an subtle manner. Translation available if needed (!). Oh my, have we revealed another "secret". .
  3. Theosophy

    Well, if he told you of earthly things and you believe not, then how shall you believe if he tells you of heavenly things.
  4. I don't believe you

    And you consider that to be an "honour killing"????? Sounds more like the douchecanoe couldn't deal with a mere woman leaving him. I'm sure he was a shining knight of a man. Here is a clue: NO ONE can take away your honour. Only YOU can do that by dishonourable actions. The mouth-breathing barbarians who would kill a woman for 'dishonouring' the family, only bring dishonor upon themselves. And for some unknown reason, I am completely non-surprised to find you defending such atrocities. I often times find myself wondering if Walker defends the indefensible, merely for the negative attention it garners him. It seems any time there is a moral issue on the table, Walker chooses the side most likely to result in a torrent of argument. Although he may actually hold the beliefs that he defends so passionately, I suspect he does so only in order to feed his massive ego.
  5. Robot news presenter launched on Russian TV

    He was indeed a yuppie. But nobody has had hair that good until Eric Trump.
  6. Well, of the two of us, I can read what Jerome wrote. You can’t. That’s sufficient for this. As to voting, I’ll let everyone here whose patience you haven’t tried rain down their support. When that doesn’t happen, I’ll leave you ignore the obvious conclusion. —Jaylemurph
  7. Doing God's will.

    Why are you so concerned with other people's business of doing God's will? Wouldn't it be less distracting to you to personally concentrate on your own business of doing God's will, rather than keeping to look at other people's obvious mistakes? Take a breather.
  8. Weird photo goes viral

    I think i see a radiator on the right hand wall?
  9. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    Not exactly. There was a law passed in 1924 when the US government was having a crisis of corruption in the executive branch. That was about the Teapot Dome oil field. The Teapot Dome scandal was a bribery scandal involving the administration of United States President Warren G. Harding from 1921 to 1923. Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall had leased Navypetroleum reserves at Teapot Dome in Wyoming, and two locations in California, to private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding. The leases were the subject of a seminal investigation by Senator Thomas J. Walsh. Convicted of accepting bribes from the oil companies, Fall became the first presidential cabinet member to go to prison; no one was convicted of paying the bribes. Accounting Today Article: https://www.accountingtoday.com/articles/trumps-taxes-1924-law-gives-congress-authority-to-see-returns If Democrats in Congress succeed in their quest to get Donald Trump to cough up his tax returns, they’ll have another Republican president to thank: Warren G. Harding. A century ago, the Teapot Dome corruption scandal engulfed Harding’s administration, spurring Congress to pass legislation that finally reclaimed its right to review private tax returns. It was a solid law, and remains so today: The legislative branch has the power to tax and spend, and the review of personal tax returns falls well within its rights and obligations. In 1924, Representative John Nance Garner shrewdly put the matter to his colleagues in the House. He asked them to imagine wanting to see his own (Garner’s) tax returns because of an ethics investigation — only to be rebuffed because they had no legal authority to obtain the returns. In offering himself up as a hypothetical target of investigation, Garner underscored the impotence of Congress. Representative Ralph Lozier, a Missouri Democrat, made a more populist pitch, saying that “the country has the right to know whether or not the tax returns made by the idle rich and the gigantic corporations are fair and reasonable or based on evasion, fraud, and circumlocution.” The final legislation established safeguards against the reckless dissemination of private tax information. As Yin has observed, Congress ultimately choose an evenhanded strategy, refusing to prohibit committees from sharing tax information, but also refusing to mandate that they must share whatever information they gathered. By law, the IRS would seem to be required to produce the returns. But the IRS is part of the Executive Branch and the Secretary of the Treasury can give conflicting orders. That kicks it up to lawyers and the Supreme Court. So the President and his cabinet are still playing an active hand. Just as the WH has ordered some of the former staff who still work for branches of the government not to answer subpoenas. So, not to say it is right or wrong, but keep in mind that the White House is still calling the shots. They are not disinterested parties sitting back and waiting for something to happen. The administration is actively fighting to challenge this 1924 law.
  10. AlL races in the universe may be subject to the same laws of physics, but there are ways of modifying how these laws affect us. We've managed to overcome the force of gravity to the extent of visiting the Moon, and propelling space probes fast enough to eventually escape the Sun's gravity. It's a little presumptuous of us, after just a few centuries of scientific technology, to say what a race a thousand, or a million years our technological senior could or could not do. Perhaps the effects of inertia can be overcome, too, allowing, what to us would seem, fantastic flight maneuvers. This seems a valid possible explanation for some persistently unexplained UFO reports.
  11. Doing God's will.

    Credibility 0%. No way I can take anything you state serious.
  12. I have faith in you, and let me point out that you lie. Where is it recorded in the myth the reason why such an overwhelming numbered Atlantean force lost to a measly 20,000 Athenians?
  13. Hate Crime at Major US University

    Yeah, FARM CHICKEN raise it, grow it veggies on roof tops, or PIGEON, better than the crap in packaged processed fast eat meat junk. Well, unless you work, there's no time-- just eat when you can. Some stick people it doesn't bother them one bit with zero meat. Might be genes I've an extreme toehead sister that's always hated anything meat, not kidding I think she might get sick if she started eating steaks porkchops hamburgers etc. What I hate is some of my stick friends NONE STOP, everything fat bar, fat this oh you mean fat etc. just EVERYTHING anything in conversation, eeeeh one tires of that quickly. NYC might be on to something though, I thought Mrs. Obama was going to do something healthy for the populace like make it a federal offence or outlaw that super-hyper-condensed ? sugar that's in every thing and MIXED IN WITH everything whether it needs it or not, just like waterNASTY-salt pump filled chickens.
  14. 1000 years ago man could not fly. now days flight travel is as easy as purchasing a ticket on line and getting to an airport. what exactly are you having a problem with? i never said that there are two dimensions to physics. i said that the effects of physics can be negated by biology and technology.
  15. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2018/04/are-we-earths-only-civilization/557180/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=share&fbclid=IwAR0DreRviYKj5ryN-2y79RzcIKktM4I4RzJzkl-skeW6MreGxlvLHwmaO7I This is a non-woo look at how we would/could detect a Palocene non-human industrial civilization
  16. Posting a falaccy does not help your position. Here is the fallacy: "physics say's that we cannot fly" Then you switch to technology: "again pilots wear flight suits in order to lessen the effects of gravity G forces" I don't need to bring up a failed idea before you use a failed idea. There is no alien physics. There is physics.
  17. Better than Grade B, though. Unless A is worse than B. Who asked for your opinion anyway? What's a twaddle? Is that like a paddle used for playing ping pong? You must be a new one. Did you ever insult me before on this forum? I don't remember you. Anyway, I only accept constructive criticism, like Harte just gave me. Let me say that I would paddle you somewhere where the twaddle don't shine, if I was not a very faithful Christian. But you have shaken my faith, therefore It's not better to give than to receive, in our case.
  18. Word Association from the Last Letter

  19. US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape

    Except I’m not a right-wing extremist. You know that political spectrum test? I don’t recall the link but it asks you several questions to determine where you fall on the spectrum, Authoritarian vs Libertarian and Liberal vs Conservative. Every time I take it, I constantly fall within a few points of 0. I don’t recall seeing anyone more moderate. If you think I am far-right then think again. It is because you are far-left. This is not providing appropriate care to rape victims. It is a means to divide and conquer. That is the Socialist endgame. Appropriate care should be handled (and usually is) at the local level. No infringement needed from an international organization. Europe is tearing itself up over this very issue. Declining populations compounded by Hijrah, austerity, Yellow-vests, Brexit and many other Conservative movements are growing. Unfortunately, that does include some of the alt-right. But the two extremes are basically the same. It’s the middle against the ends.
  20. Doing God's will.

    Soooo, when an individual goes on a killing spree, slaying the wicked and unrighteous, because 'it's god's will'., then that individual has made a personal and subjective decision, based on his 'spiritual experience?" It is astounding how some can claim that >>these<< people are following god's will, but >>those<< people are not. When none of them can prove that they are listening to anything but the voice in their own head. I don't expect a straight answer from you, more like "Following god's will is when you decide that your will is gods will, when God wills you to do his will." Throughout history, people have claimed to be doing god's will, with both good and evil results. From feeding the poor, to eradicating indigenous people's culture, to waging war on those who believe differently, and committing atrocities in the name of god.
  21. Robot news presenter launched on Russian TV

    Sorry, no I meant back then in the 80s. I'm sure it was a Friday? I hated Max Headroom, I thought he was a YUPPY. Scary stuff there from the chaps with the AI girlfriends.
  22. And that's the most satisfying way of frying them, sez I. Harte
  23. Bolded: physics say's that we cannot fly YET technology has made it possible that we can. again pilots wear flight suits in order to lessen the effects of gravity G forces. there might be aliens that have different biological structures that make it easier for space travel or tech that can compensate for it. i really don't think you're right in this instance. Red: all over the place. ...and if you knew id bring up Nuremberg then you should have brought it up first and addressed it before i used it to blow your argument outta the sky instead of providing a very soft explanation for what you think is a better explanation.
  24. Going back tot he thread topic I think that these changes are more administrative changes than changes in attitude. As was already mentioned the fact that drones are common now is a problem as was seen at Heathrow airport. Drones have been crashed by jamming the GPS signal with a signal showing that the drone is in the wrong location. They move to get to the position they want to occupy and that has put them deep in San Francisco bay.
