  1. You know you have been in the Philippines too long when you no longer need one of these masks in order to breathe.

    Last Supper

    I believe that the USA is in the very same state right now.

    Last Supper

    OK, but what about Australians? What should we look for? A boat made out of empty Foster cans?... empty vegemite cans?... or what?

    A British neighbor has a large portrait of 'Her Majesty' mounted next to his front door, and a Union Flag hoisted onto his roof top.
  5. Nah, it won't be too longer before humans will be able to travel faster than the speed of light with WARP Drives. NASA Reveals Latest Warp-Drive Ship Designs Look at the picture above. Nope, it’s not a snapshot of a Star Wars scene, or any other sci-fi movie. It’s what you get if you combine a NASA physicist working on achieving faster-than-light travel with a 3D artist, and the result is freaking AWESOME. And yes, you heard correctly, there are scientists working on faster-than-light travel, and this is what the ship could look like in the future. You might be thinking to yourself right now “Faster-than-light travel? But Einstein!” Yes, according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. But scientists are looking for ways to get around this, and a team based at NASA Eagleworks, led by Dr Harold “Sonny” White, have been working on just that. They discovered a loophole that could theoretically allow faster-than-light travel without breaking the laws of physics. How? Warp drive, of course! If a spaceship could be designed in such a way that it created a warp bubble, then the space in front of the ship would be compressed and the space behind would expand. This would result in space-time moving around the object, repositioning the ship without it actually moving. “Remember, nothing locally exceeds the speed of light, but space can expand and contract at any speed,” White told io9. So of course, White’s new design incorporates these ideas and involves “a sleek ship nestled at the center of two enormous rings, which create the warp bubble,” 3D artist Mark Rademaker explained to io9. You can check out some more of Rademaker and White's ship design here. Think this sounds a little too futuristic? According to a report by Gizmodo, White’s team has been using a test instrument called a White-Juday Warp Field Interferometer in order to try and generate and detect microscopic instances of warp bubbles. If they can achieve this, then who knows how quickly the technology could advance. “Perhaps a ‘Star Trek’ experience within our lifetime is not such a remote possibility” says White. If you’d like to find out more, watch this clip below from 41:54 to see White discussing the design: https://www.iflscience.com/space/nasa-reveals-latest-warp-drive-ship-designs/
  6. So how long do you think our Children have got to find one? If we (as a united planet) dedicated our resources, it could be done in less than 100 years. JMHO. When we needed nuclear bombs, races to the moon, and other priorities, things have happened very fast. We just need to make space travel to the outer reaches of the universe a priority for all countries.
  7. "Can we really Save the Planet?" Of course we can! ... Our planet has already survived a giant meteor attack and the subsequesnt death of the dinosaurs. Our planet will always continue to survive (at least until our sun eventually gives out), albeit without humans on our planet. The future of humanity will have to continue elsewhere in the universe on other habitable planets (at least until we detroy those too).
  8. I sort of had the opposite experience when I saw (and used) a touch tone phone for the very first time at the New York World's Fair in 1965. Actually, I was more amazed than baffled, and I found it very easy to use. I guess that older tech is harder to understand than the newer tech. For example, I'd be almost helpless with using a DOS computer at this point of my life.
  9. You know you have been in the Philippines too long when you've seen the Filipino dentist way too many times and now you look like this.
  10. Daily Niacin - 1,000 mg (yes, it does equal one gram but I cannot find it in that strength) - Taken per Doctor's recommendation to reduce lipids. Alpha Lipoic Acid - 600 mg and Vitamin B Complex for treating neuropathy in my legs and feet. Centrum - just to be sure that I get what I'm not getting from food.

  12. But seriously folks… why does the Philippines need more garbage? Isn’t there more than enough garbage over here already?... and what does the Philippines actually do with the imported garbage from Canada?
  13. Philippines' Duterte gives Canada 1 week to take back garbage or 'we will declare war' Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday reportedly threatened to "declare war" against Canada within the next week if the country fails to remove tons of garbage that was previously shipped to Manila. Duterte, in remarks aired by state media and reported by The Canadian Press, said he will "give a warning to Canada maybe next week that they better pull that thing out or I will set sail." "I will declare war against them. I will advise Canada that your garbage is on the way. Prepare a grand reception. Eat it if you want to," he said. "Your garbage is coming home." https://www.foxnews.com/world/duterte-philippines-canada-garbage-declare-war
  14. Sometimes, the US gives away its advanced technology for free, such as it did with the Space Shuttle. It's no wonder that the Russian version looked like a twin to the American original. The Original The Russian Copy “From the mid-1970s through the early 1980s, NASA documents and NASA-funded contractor studies provided the Soviets with their most important source of unclassified material in the aerospace area. Soviet interests in NASA activities focused on virtually all aspects of the space shuttle. Documents acquired dealt with airframe designs (including the computer programs on design analysis), materials, flight computer systems, and propulsion systems. This information allowed Soviet military industries to save years of scientific research and testing time as well as millions of rubles as they developed their own very similar space shuttle vehicle.” http://www.nbcnews.com/id/18686090/ns/technology_and_science-space/t/how-soviets-stole-space-shuttle/
