So it was God who did not want Moore to win, it was God that conspired against Moore to deny him a seat in the Senate. God does not like Roy Moore. (I wonder if he actually understands that?) Tugg But God works in ways mere humans cannot understand! Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps, possibly, maybe, God w...Jump to post
Of course, plenty of "Christians" like should-be-stoned-to-death-according-to-the-book-she-claims-to-follow serial adulterer Kim Davis. The German theologian Bonhoeffer would put all those cheap "born again Christians" to shame. He refused escaping the concentration camp, becaus...Jump to post
I find it an interesting mental practice to debate while defending a standpoint that differs from my own. It helps to understand the motivation behind those standpoints. In other words, you like to troll internet forums. I've always wondered what was up with you and your weird posts. I do the same ...Jump to post
I wonder if Moore will call for a recount... to find out how many dead and out of state Dems voted in this election. :smile: Well, just a thought here. In any state where there are strict voter ID laws, a recount should be illegal. Because, duh, the dead and out-of-state voters were properly identi...Jump to post

The race is over. Moore has over 50% of the vote with just about half the votes in. Jones can't overcome that. Err, no. Your maths is wrong. It depends on *whose* votes are not counted yet. Moore had a head start, as the rural and GOP-leaning precincts were counted first. Cities are more liberal, a...Jump to post

but so, is it or not possible to use an aircraft 20 hours within 24 hours? In all the years on a.nut I've not seen a reason why it couldn't be used 20 hours in 24. Or even 23 hours, if the crew - and its replacement - sleeps aboard, has additional fuel tanks installed, has zero payload, and gets pr...Jump to post
Forum member HeloDriver mentioned it on nasaspaceflight.com in September 2012. Is Musk lurking on spaceflight forums? HeloDriver has asked Musk for a tour of the payload on twitter. Well, I've read the suggestion that the first FH payload could be a Tesla months before. In a comment on youtube. It'...Jump to post
I fully support tearing down and building from scratch with two minor conditions. 1. It is built elsewhere - outside of Germany preferable but definitely outside of Berlin 2. It is inspected where it is built by non-Berlin inspectors. 1. if you have good plans, you *could* manage the construction o...Jump to post
I find it pretty amazing that the new Istanbul Airport will be open by next year possibly. Construction only started in 2015 I believe, so they are doing a good job building an new airport for Istanbul in only a few years when it's urgently needed. Even the new Berlin airport was planned for much l...Jump to post
but, why is it so hard to believe that Bigfoot or Loch Ness Monster exist? Trust me, I'm a biologist... You basically work from species you know. For example, you suspect a lion species in Europe. (In fact, in Aristoteles' time, lions still lived in Greece.) Then you look at the behaviour of lions ...Jump to post
Would this sub have any "black boxes" that could be recovered?? None that I know of. Usually, a diving robot will give you enough pictures. The Tornado fighter, as I have read in the early 90ies, does have a detachable black box - with an aerodynamical shape (to glide down), it's light en...Jump to post
Anyway, it was so catastrophic and fast that the emergency transmitter buoy could not be deployed. Otherwise, we'd probably have a signal since long ago. In 2000, Kursk could not deploy the buoy - because it was fixated to the submarine. The Russian navy did not want an accidental deployment when Ku...Jump to post
While Berlin is indeed run by some "wishful thinking" politicians, I think there is a wider problem in Germany of selling huge projects to the public at unrealistically low costs. Whether this is intentional on the part of the government or not probably cannot be proven, but I would imagi...Jump to post
The news is that there are still no news. Even the heat anomaly detected by the USN search plane is just... nothing. Likewise, flares sighted by the British polar research vessel were neither from the sub nor from a life raft. Zilch. Nothing. And it's frustrating when I type "ARA San Juan"...Jump to post
They will just wait until some protected species finds a habitat in the empty building and then never open it. I'm just thinking of turning BER into a safari park, full with rhinos and elephants, flamingoes and lions...

Who is getting a share of the funds for the airport? This demands an investigation by an outside auditing agency. Actually, Imtech, one of the companies involved with BER, went bankrupt - but due to corruption and mismanagement. Imtech is one of the most prestigious construction companies in Europe...Jump to post

Wow. I hope that airport will be opened before airplanes are replaced by teleportation...

Isn't this what P3C Orion's are designed to do? Yes, but I'm sure the "radar" got born in translation.

Interesting tidbit: In a British experiment, earth has been proved to be flat. A replication in the United States has shown the earth's surface to be concave, like a bowl. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bedford_Level_experiment But they didn't account for the refraction of light... which is especiall...Jump to post
A photograph from 2000 ft AGL? Nah. Even a pic from 20000 ft AGL will prove nothing. Because the physicists don't take into account refraction due to the gradient in air density; thus the flat earth appears as round to the untrained observer.
Renewed hopes, the Navy has heard what it calls 'permanent and repetitive' sounds coming from the bottom of the ocean. They have 7 days of oxygen on board, so locating the sub and rescue has to happen before Wednesday is over. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/20/missing-argentina-submarin...Jump to post
are you saying that some kinds of hearing aids also act as hearing protection? Yes.

During the last comms, the sub's crew reported a mechanical breakdown:
The procedure is as follows: The President proposes a candidate for Chancellor. (Angela Merkel is not Chancellor right now, she's only managing the current affairs ad interim.)

Modern hearing aids have limiters anyway; they will never blast your ear with 140 dB, for example. It depends on the type of ear plug, though. Before you go working without hearing protection, ask your hearing aid consultant about which frequency your hearing aid will protect you, and which ones wil...Jump to post
