    Only for some. No one has to celebrate any holiday. If you don't want to that's up to you.

    The US has only itself to blame for letting the current trend go unchallenged for 30 years. People find they win and loose at things in life, that others dont all like them, and that others dont all agree with them. Thats life. Trying to create a society where everyone creeps around on eggshells because people have been wrapped up in too much cotton wool is detrimental to society. It creates a decline in freedom, free speech, free thought, and freedom of expression. Not caused by a dictator, but caused by people who would be dictators being given too much influence and say in society. Cry babies that throw a tantrum unless they get their way on everything and everyone else shuts up.
  3. I think it's best if we just ignore the former president. There's nothing productive trying to discuss any items involving him.
  4. yep, it is not like dogs got loose/broke out, and attacked someone, the kid fell from above, it is parents' fault, for not installing window guards or keep an eye on the kid,
  5. Around the time this accident occurred there was a major panic in the Western United States concerning a Hugh number of Airship sighting they called it the Airship panic of the 1890s. It started around 1894 in California and over the course to 3 years the airships were being seen as far East as Iowa. At that time people didn't know what to think some thought that were piloted by Aliens others that they were being piloted by men. In fact in some cases they were so low the people inside were heard and seen . When this crash occurred people were very nervous about the whole situation. Below are links that talk about the situation in general and about the crash specifically.

  6. Looks like China will take an increasingly active role when we leave. https://warontherocks.com/2020/04/chinas-strategic-assessment-of-afghanistan/ Conclusion After two decades of developing ties with both the Afghan government and the Taliban, China has emerged with a special faciliatory role in the peace process. It is pleased to see plans for a U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan yet remains skeptical that Washington will go through with it. At the same time, Beijing is deeply pessimistic about the future of the peace process and a power vacuum left by departing American forces, and is preparing for multilateral engagement down the road to address the issue. China sees its role in Afghanistan beyond the peace deal as cautious and flexible. It sees its role in Afghan security in three ways: as marginal in the sense that it is not a primary party to the conflict; as indispensable in the sense that China is a great power and a neighboring country that cannot be ignored; and as central in the sense that Chinese investment will be critical for the country’s future post-conflict reconstruction and economic development. The Afghan peace process still has a long way to go, and China will not be excluded.
  7. Can you imagine a life without religion or do you have one? I do. I have chosen to live my life without religion - unless it’s a religion that I make up for myself. So, I’m going for it. I’m making up my own religion and choosing what to believe in. Have you ever thought of making up your own religion? I bet you could get really crazy with it…..but, I’m trying to keep it really simple, so for now, I like Math, Science, Natural Observation, Contemplation and Study, plus the Eleven Rules of the Earth. I’m not saying I am a Satanist, but I like some of the rules they made better than the Ten Commandments.
  8. Could be worse. Over here, once full disclosure happens and the government finally admits they've been collaborating with Greys for decades, the citizen who made that sign would have a legal cause of action.
  9. A bizarre sign that claims three people have been abducted by aliens has popped up in Sedgley. The large panel, with black stencilled writing, also accuses Dudley Council of not doing enough to stop the 'abductions'. It reads: “3 alien abductions here in one week. When are the council going to do something?” Full monty at Birmingham Live: Link

    It appears that you might support a society of bullism. Why can't the least members of society have a say?
  12. In June 1660, just one month after his Restoration, Charles II’s black spaniel-greyhound cross disappeared. After the offer of a reward provoked no response, the incensed monarch published an advert in the Mercurius Publicus appealing for the dog’s return, claiming the animal: doubtless was stoln, for the Dog was not born nor bred in England, and would never forsake His Master. Whosoever findes him may acquaint any at Whitehal, for the Dog was better known at Court, than those who stole him. Will they never leave robbing His Majesty? must He not keep a Dog? In the 18th century, adverts for lost dogs became a mainstay of newspapers across the country. These notices typically offered a reward (the going rate was half a guinea) and listed the type, size, colour and identifying marks of the missing animal. They reveal the scale and diversity of Britain’s dog population, which was fortunate enough to have owners with both the inclination and spare cash to attempt to recover their animals.

    It's really hard. But it pays off. I honestly think Sekiro is the most well designed game I've ever played

    Fair points but I personally think that many of the reports from the early to mid 20th century had embellishments and speculations affixing technology as a characteristic as a means to describe what they did not understand what they were observing. A combination of natural phenomenon and embellishments of items observed are what I think are the most logical ways to answer many of those decades old reports. With the utter lack of any signs of life in our galactic neighborhood, I'm inclined to disregard the ET theories.
  16. Because it was Bonofiglio and myself who report to Alan Carmen. I was actually looking for YDI evidence for Howard. Decou is a unchanged Carolina Bay. Never silted because it's too far upland and is at the edge of the Pygmy Forest. Go find a black mat. Because that's what most of these these papers say. This one talks about a theory that Aggie dumped into the Arctic which was never a theory. Our solar system just past through a supernova debris cloud. Could that be the reason for the markers? http://www.sci-news.com/astronomy/solar-system-cloud-supernova-debris-08777.html#:~:text=“For the last few thousand,are unclear%2C” they said.&text=They found clear traces of,through the Local Interstellar Cloud. I linked a article which said different. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2012/04/no-love-comet-wipeout I told you. I'm dealing with a headache grown kid and a sister making excuses for him.........I'm miserable. This will be eliminated by July because my take no **** girlfriend and I are moving in together.
  17. Pit bull types do not need to be trained to attack in order to attack. Its just a matter of genetics. Years of breeding for the purpose of dog-fighting created breeds that possessed characteristics conducive to success in the pits, e.g., continuing to fight through injury and pain, attacking without the warning signs given by the overwhelming majority of dog breeds, attacking without ceasing, etc. etc. You and the many others making these uninformed arguments really need to study up on the history and science of dog breeding.
  18. I was a kid in Texas when this story got raised from the archives and circulated again. In the original article, I think the "airship" clipped the top of a windmill and crashed. This was written in the age of lighter than air craft before Orville and Wilber replaced balloons with reliable airplanes. Jules Verne and later H G Welles wrote stories about massive high tech air ships, lighter than air or held aloft by mysterious rays coming from secret substances like "cavorite" Cigar shaped dirigibles were the model for modern airships before craft with wings. Lots of stories were inspired by mysterious airships, especially after Jules Verne's success with Master of the World in 1887. Bigfoot was not a thing yet, but there were plenty of giants buried in Indian mounds and Thunderbirds flying through the western skies to write about. Didn't have to be true if it sold newspapers.

    In the early 2000's the company I worked for was under contract with the Air Force to develop casting technology for Titanium-Aluminide alloys, which had been around for a decade or so. . The project was not classified, but our manufacturing process could be patented so we kept it confidential I went to a conference with our people, some Air Force representatives and a moderator from Wright Patterson. During lunch he talked about the Russians and Glasnost. There are a dozen or so possible Ti-Aluminides but only 3 or 4 that have really useful properties. Turns out the Russians were working on the same 3 alloys Wright Patterson was developing. When asked how that could be, the Russian scientists said it was simple. "We read the papers your metallurgists published on Ti-Aluminides. . You never published results on 3 highly likely alloys, therefore we knew those were the right three to keep investigating." Sometimes what you don't say carries valuable information too.

    Sam and Lex on UFO's

    Lots to think about in your very logical post. Overall, I tend to agree with you, but I am looking for loopholes. In that spirit, my counter is that this super-secret unit knows the limitations of secrecy within any human organization. They can't run their tests on informed subjects so they choose not to brief anybody. They know there will be some leaks and they also know our rivals are trying to eavesdrop on our operations with some degree of success. It would be best if nobody in the exercise is in the know. so there are no slip ups. In fact they find the UAP controversy a useful distraction and cover story. It keep our own forces just a little bit sharper with that unknown out there to contend with and keeps our rivals guessing. Any nation including the US that had the capability of intercepting EM radiation and projecting it to another location accurately enough to fool human vision and targeting radar would keep it secret as long as possible. At the moment that seem as likely to me as alien visitors. On the other hand, and this is just an assumption too, any civilization with a technology and understanding of the physical universe sophisticated enough to send a craft to another planet may also have a good understanding of spoofing. and capability to keep their craft invisible to our level of technology.

    Blame

    I must be a rotten SOB...it seems I've had extensive experience in needing forgiveness. Or maybe I'm just needy..as in needing Love. Forgiveness is an act of Love. Oops, I said Love again..that always seems to get some fur up !
  24. Our 5 senses evolved to detect signals present in our environment. Electromagnetic radiation that carries possible information about our surroundings. Sight. Compression waves in liquid or gas surrounding an organism for possibly useful. information. Hearing. Various molecules suspended in liquid or gas that reveal information about emitters of those molecules in the environment. Smell and Taste. Surface characteristics of nearby objects. Touch. And some detection of gravity and positioning. Balance. Some earth organisms seem to be able to detect magnetic fields. All of those senses are useful because they detect signals present in the environment that can be used to increase chances of survival. There might be a lot of different methods that organisms evolve to detect signals, but the nature of signals is largely determined by physics and chemistry. If those signals are present, there is a good probability that interpreting them is useful for survival. If EM radiation is available, isn't it likely that some detection mechanism will evolve to make use of it?

    Blame

    ^ Yup, because Forgiveness works both ways....it makes the forgiver and the forgiven 'feel better'. It's a healing thing. I'm puzzled as to how forgiveness could seem ,to some, an unimportant thing . And since the topic is Shame ..someone who is Guilty of hurting another often feels ashamed of themselves for behaving in a hurtful way. Forgiveness can ease those feelings. Forgive me for mentioning it but in the bible , sin is Remembered no more When it is forgiven. It's just an example, based on human experience, how forgiveness ,ideally, can work for the forgiver and the forgiven.
  26. Sherapy

    Blame

    Great point, Our strategy is we put a lot of effort into not needing forgiveness, but being human there are times we are not always our best and we might be short with each other etc. hubby will point it out and it gives me pause to be more mindful and I will apologize and acknowledge my short coming not necessarily because I felt bad or even always notice what a brat I am being, but bottom line my sweet husband deserves to be cherished and treated with love as the norm. I look at this expression of “seeking forgiveness” as a way to make a habit of being kind and loving and I do end up feeling better.
  27. Wasn't this shown to be a hoax a long time ago (like early 1980's)? I know the "History" Channel had some episode about it but as usual, inconclusive and wild speculations to juice the viewership.
  28. Physical pain imprints on the soul the shape and parameters of the body, sort of like computer code, or when sculptor takes a hammer and chisel and makes a statue of a human being. Experiencing separation and loss imprints on the soul what it means and how it feels to be separate which is something that can't be learned in heaven as described by numerous near death experience descriptions. This Earth life is a school and we simply learn here the things that can't be learned in heaven. The soul's lessons are embedded in our everyday lives and it is holistically imprinted with what it needs to learn regardless of who we are, or where we live, or even what believe. Belief seems to be irrelevant. Everyone regardless of who they are experiences pretty much the same thing, atheists, gay, straight, Muslim, Christian, it just doesn't seem to matter. And emotion and memory seem to be connected so the more emotion these experiences and lessons evoke the more we remember them.
  29. Yes...I'm concerned about my Jewish friends with all of the rhetoric being thrown around about them lately. The random attacks on the street are alarming, especially in more progressive parts of the country. For the life of me I don't understand why they hate Jews so vehemently.

    Manwon, I get "access denied" with the first link, and I don't read anything specific pointing to the mythological origin of the Sumerians in the second link. Maybe you can quote the 'juicy bits'?

    Giza pyramids

    Which three sealed sarchophagi are you referring to? I'm aware the empty sarcophagus of Sekhemkhet was "sealed" behind a door that was plastered shut. Sekhemkhet only reigned 6 years and his pyramid was never completed. It's not very surprising he wasn't found in an incomplete pyramid. What are your other two "sealed" sarcophagi? As I already said regarding the hypothesis that these were just symbolic tombs (cenotaphs,) Khufu's in particular has several aspects that would tend to indicate the opposite. Harte

    Giza pyramids

    Yeah I've been doing online archaeology/mysteries stuff since the late 80's on USENET. I have a fair appreciation of whether a thread will be 'useful', educational, an ego fest, woo parade, tête dans le cul! or Et mon cul, c’est du poulet? whatever, sometimes I'm surprised but most often I am not. Since we aren't paid to post here, and haven't given an oath or agreed to anything with our sponsor Saru or the demi-god of forums a Hindu fellow called Sintor the twice severed. Then αυτή είναι η επιλογή μου.
  33. If the neighbour's reported the dogs to be a terror, then there was warning with behaviours. I hope he was knocked out from the fall. Can't bring myself to read it. Poor little tyke
  34. A pit bull's character may be the same as a jack russell, but their equipment is more lethal. Any dog will bite a person if they get their foot stepped on. The difference is a pit pull will do much more harm. That's why they kill so many toddlers. They also tend to go for the second bite, but so do other breeds that are smaller.
  35. i don't agree at this point. If they were confined to a fenced in area, the owners were doing their part to keep others safe. Predicting a 3 year old may fall from above can't always be a consideration. That being said, the dog owners were not good owners. I've always disliked the pit bull breed. So I'd be fine with putting them down.
  36. I can vouch for NYC and Philadelphia. There was a lot of looting and rioting with fires for weeks. Minneapolis really burned! There are threads in here where videos and news articles are linked from all over the country.
  37. If you don't mind, what do you think these items are?
  38. I watched the video and I think he was serious but he was concerned about more issues than climate change. He was talking about solar flares and stuff. The feeling that I got was that he really believed the moon and earth's orbits were slowly changing and he was wondering if there was a way to change it back. Can't say I would make fun of him. People here on UM believe in far weirder stuff.
  39. Maybe Louie would like to try sticking his finger in a socket
  40. Quite. It is why we imprison people like a surgeon or airline pilot found drunk on the job, and not, say, a painter and decorator. Because we expect a higher level of responsibility from people in those positions.

  44. eventy-five years ago, the United States and the United Kingdom signed a unique secret alliance. To this day, no other countries share classified information, work together to gather information, and integrate staff across their agencies to the same extent. Following the dealignment of the former settler colonies with British foreign policy after the Second World War, the relationship has since grown to also include Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. We know it today as the Five Eyes. Remarkably little is known about the intelligence alliance. No single document exists in public knowledge to serve as a blueprint for the agreement. If such a document does exist, it is still highly classified. Last week, GCHQ and the NSA released a rare joint statement: “This alliance defines how we share communication, translation, analysis, and code-breaking information, and has helped protect our countries and allies for decades.” Full story at National Interest: Link
  45. this ---> Now, does anyone really think the US presence will stop these lunatics from warring? - because I sure don't. It's been a 20 year total WASTE of Americans and resources. The US never involved itself in choosing between Irish Catholics and Protestants, and does any American regret that? Good Lord!
  46. Right... because our governments would NEVER break their own laws or surveil their citizens, right? Or do I misunderstand your statement? Hell... Obama's administration didn't stop with average U.S. citizens, his thugs went after members of Congress over their stance on the Iran nuke travesty. Or was all that info insanity?
