    Polar Freezers and the Global Warming

    Speaking of polar freezers, have you seen this? It's a freezer for storing Antarctic and Greenland ice cores. I'm intrigued by the one guy's comment about "ice that's fallen from the sky." Like, literal big chunks of ice? I understand there is little precipitation on Antarctica, so it can't be...

    Raimondo di Sangro

    There used to be these hand warmers, they were little plastic bags containing a gel and a small metal disc. When you bent the disc sharply, it made a snap sound that caused the gel to crystalize and heat up. It would stay hot for hours. Then you could soak it in boiling water and it would...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    Thanks for that, Dielectric, I'll add it to my list of reading materials that I need to go through. I don't have Internet at home, so I use the library computers and do a lot of copying and pasting of any articles I can find that are relevant to whatever I happen to be studying at the time, plus...

    Renaissance Cannons: Mysterious and Misunderstood

    Well, yes, but in-between throwing a rock and building a machine that shoots the rock really far, there has to be some steps, right? We go from throwing rocks, to making bows and arrows, to manufacturing complex metal projectile-shooting machines by the thousands. What was there between the...

    Stars, Galaxies, Planets: how do we know what they are?

    The more I read about this subject, the more confused I get. :( I no longer know what shape the Earth is, what the sky is, what the stars, moon, sun, and planets are, or what kind of reality we are living in. Nothing makes any sense any more. I do observe that people in ancient times (however...

    The missing link to ancient power

    I had never heard of an electret before, so thanks for the education. There is so much about electricity that we are not being told, so we have to figure it out ourselves. It seems that entire cities were used as electrical grids in the past.

    Nuns Painting Makes Public Debut After 450 Years in Hiding

    Pretty sure I've seen those plastic wine goblets at the Dollar Tree, as well.

    1880s Submarines: Zalinski Boat and Gymnote

    I've heard numerous stories about kids who lied about their age and signed up with the army. Seems to happen in every war...or, rather, all the wars that happened way back in the past, where we can't verify anything. You don't hear about 14-year-olds joining ranks with the American forces in...

    Dating: 2,000 y.o. this, or 25,000 y.o. that...

    It seems that every reset destroys more and more of the stuff left over from the previous civilizations, until we have only those things that are a few centuries old. They are deliberately misdated so that nobody will suspect how long humanity has been around. Sri Yukteswar Giri, in his book...

    Nantes France, alchemic sarcophagus marble artwork

    The four female statues are extraordinary, and make me wonder if 3D printing with geopolymer marble was used. Women carrying castles, or wearing them on their heads, is a very common, and bizarre, theme in old artworks.

    The 'Spanish Stonehenge' Is Above Water for the First Time in 50 Years

    Seems a bit odd that this thing is supposedly thousands of years old, and in all that time, nobody found it. Also, "about 150"? Doesn't look like there's more than 40 or 50 of them actually standing. IF they are man-made, they could have been paving stones on a road, or the concrete floor of a...

    The 'Spanish Stonehenge' Is Above Water for the First Time in 50 Years

    Perhaps literally. It could be the last civilization's version of a Disney World attraction. Or a parking garage, or the foundation of an apartment building. But no, they'll call it a temple, and tell us which concrete blocks are aligned to the solstices and equinoxes.

    Stonehenge breakthrough: How ‘treasure trove of information’ was found buried under site

    Yeah, we don't have graveyards older than about 200 years, and the remains in many are probably long gone, dissolved into nature... But there are mere fragments over 5000 years old at Stonehenge!? The Chicken Dinner Theory is looking more appealing to me.

    Stonehenge breakthrough: How ‘treasure trove of information’ was found buried under site

    Charles Kos did a video with medieval drawings that show Stonehenge as a 2-story square structure! It could have been a concrete parking garage, for all we know, and then it was excavated and remodeled numerous times. In fact, you can clearly see that it's concrete, in some of the photos of it...

    Stonehenge breakthrough: How ‘treasure trove of information’ was found buried under site

    In all the tens of thousands of articles about Stonehenge over the decades, along with a multitude of TV shows, how come these bone fragments were never mentioned? Or maybe they were, and I somehow missed it?
