Re: SpaceX News

Folks might find this interesting...

The Starship is complete.

And Elon Musk isn't one of the smoothest speakers out there. But THAT, compared to what he's done? Very, very forgivable.

Re: SpaceX News

They do have plans for something like Falcon 9. First step is a "Grasshopper" like experimental rocket. Of course it is a joint European project, so the whole thing will move at a snail's pace. By the time they have their Grasshopper, SpaceX will have landed on Mars... That's making the a...

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

About the time you think the story can't get any more ridiculous: https://gunfreezone.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Hogg-Armband-2.jpg I'm sure he thinks he looks all studly and such - but there's something really unsettling about that. Makes me wonder if we're looking at a little stormtrooper in ...

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

The thing that worries me severely about the Parkland shooting is that the law enforcement agencies in the area went out of their way to AVOID arresting this little pile of fecal material (and many others, apparently) citing a 'school to prison pipeline' that needed to be stopped. (And to keep that ...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Let's see... There's no 'proof' Trump's working with Putin. There's no proof he did anything wrong, illegal, immoral, or fattening. (Though ketchup on well-done steak is... um... ah, what the heck. It's kinda funny.) Yet the evidence against the previous administration about possibly tapping Trump's...

Re: BLP news

Unfortunately what I've been seeing from BLP is decidedly iffy. All theory aside, what I saw on one of their early demo videos was a bank of LED lights hooked up to a bank of solar cells, 'reacting' to them dropping their 'hydrino' powder in granular form between two rotating electrodes hooked up to...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Three weeks ahead of the biggest election of her career and she is taking the weekend off to prepare for the third debate, the one that will probably be the least watched least influential of the three? "Preparing" or maybe resting...medicating. Addendum: Hillary Clinton’s Medical Problem...

Re: Warming, what warming?

If a model predicts something - and it happens, then reality coincides with the model. If a model predicts something that doesn't happen, then reality is not coinciding with the model. No matter how attached you are to that model, no matter how much grant money it's earned with the promises of 'it's...

Re: BLP news

After watching the demonstration again, I have a hard time convincing myself it isn't a fraud. Aside from the obvious things that I've detailed above, the fact that they weren't acting like this was some mysterious, high-energy source was interesting. I believe I saw a mention of soft x-rays - unle...

Re: BLP news

How do these people not have their heads on spikes (figuratively) yet? There's something wrong with the system if this sort of "trade secret" protected charade can go on for whole decades. While I share the skepticism of everyone here where BLP is concerned. I honestly would be very surpr...

Re: BLP news

"5 J input and the light energy released is over 500 J." Eh, someone who know more about these demos educate me. To a casual observer like myself, it looks pretty unconvincing. I could make such a thing in my garage if I cared enough to try -- and if I wanted to risk getting electrocuted,...

Re: Eric Cantor Loses To TEA Party Libertarian

The Right is supposed to be the guardian of history. I'm not seeing it. Left and right (of today), both have no confidence in freedom and believe people are incapable of living without a caretaker. Somebody, then, has to take on the duty of being the farmer - caretaker... for a cut off the top. Pur...

Here is one that is not quite so OT. Republicans believe in in ignoring the Constitution when it suits them. So does Obama. I...
