…Most astrobiologists seem comfortable with the premise that life might be widespread. But their optimism doesn’t always extend to complex, intelligent life.

It’s possible that we inhabit a universe whose occupants are mostly pond scum. After decades of seeing semi-humanoid aliens strut across the silver screen, it would be more than a little disappointing to think that the actual cosmic bestiary largely consists of plants and animals that are microscopic, or at best, no smarter than cane toads.

That situation would make humans very special, a circumstance that seems at odds with the enormous amount of real estate available for life, as well as the billions of years since the Big Bang during which intelligence could arise.

So, could there be a plausible explanation for why the universe seems so short on keen-witted company?

RTFA for reflection upon our species, the known universe and such.

I stopped believing in the tooth fairy when I found out she was working for the NSA to collect my DNA. Did you ever wonder how the tooth fairy got all the money to leave under your pillow? It’s from a black opts budget!

Informed Deliver is a cool new feature offered by the post office. It sends you an email letting you know ahead of time what is going to be delivered to your mailbox, A friend told me about it and I don’t have any experience with it – but pleasantly surprised the post office is so cool!

 

 

Comments Off on Apple Slowing Down Older Phones

Well, glad I’m not in the Apple cult. So Apple is slowing down older phones supposedly because they are worried about your battery lasting longer. Here’s the question, do you believe that? And if so – are you really that stupid? And why not have a setting where you can turn that feature off if, let’s say, you put a new battery in it?

Comments Off on Trump Nominee for Federal Judge has no courtroom experience

This is amazing. This guy nominated by Trump has less experience than I do personally. He has never tried a case on any court. Never so much has done a deposition by himself. NOTHING!

Comments Off on Autocorrect nightmare: cannibalism instead of cannabis

Canada is one step closer to the accidental legalization of cannibalism after the House of Commons passed a typo-ridden Bill C-45, formerly known as The Cannabis Act.

“I think no one wanted to be the one to point out the error,” MP Sara Anderson said. “We all thought someone else would do it, and then they called the vote, and here we are, all voting to legalize cannibalism.”

Har!

Comments Off on Jerusalem is just another piece of dirt

The Jerusalem controversy is just another example of how religion ruins everything. Trump, sucking up to his religious base, wants to move America’s embassy to Jerusalem to side with Jews and Christians against Muslims as to who God gave this land to. In the Reality based world however, there is no God and Jerusalem is just another piece of dirt like anywhere else in the middle east.

How much are we going to spend on wars and crazy stuff because one group’s invisible friend doesn’t get along with another group’s invisible friend? What are the consequences of turning our backs on Reality in favor of old stories that just are not true? I think more people should be focused on this world, this Reality, and what we can do to make this planet a better place to live. Reality matters, old stories don’t. Why don’t we focus on exploring the universe, electric cars, and curing cancer instead? Let’s do something useful with our limited existence.

Image result for net neutrality

In a new proposal issued last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) set out a plan to eliminate net neutrality protections, ignoring the voices of millions of Internet users who weighed in to support those protections. The new rule would reclassify high-speed broadband as an “information service” rather than a “telecommunications service” (remember, the FCC is forbidden from imposing neutrality obligations on information services). It would then eliminate the bright-line rules against blocking, throttling, and pay-to-play (as well as the more nebulous general conduct standard) in favor of a simplistic transparency requirement. In other words, your ISP would be free to set itself up as an Internet gatekeeper, as long as it is honest about it.

I’ve made progress and I’ve written a how to guide for curing cancer.

There isn’t any magic in the process. In fact, I’m using standard procedures that oncologists are already familiar with. The radiation protocol is the strangest part but it’s actually easier to configure than a standard treatment and is also safer. And it uses standard immunotherapy drugs.

The fact that I’m alive and healthy right now is anecdotal evidence that it might be working.

What I’m looking for is to get some attention on this process as a way of speeding up cancer solutions development. I am definitely onto something here and I encourage you to run this method past any oncologist to get their opinion. It will probably be year and a lot of testing before I’m certified cancer free, if I am cancer free. But I decided that whether or not it works for me isn’t the test if this is a great idea. So I’m publishing it now in the hopes it will catch on and be improved. Sort of an “Open Source” cancer solution. I need more brains working on this because some time in the future I might need the improved version.

If you have a friend or relative with terminal cancer and you have run out of options you might want to pass this on to them. With this method the worse off they are the more likely it is to work. Any oncologist should be able to follow this guide easily and conclude it’s worth a try.

But – I’m looking for people who want to write stories about this. I give great interviews. So feel free to contact me if you’re interested.

Here’s the story. Today I feel the I’m Christian because I want to believe it. Roy Moore is a pig. And that was before this.

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

Tomorrow maybe we find out. They are releasing a lot of the JFK secret papers on the assassination.

So – will it reveal Trump was right? Or will they continue to cover it up.?
