"Make sure the candy drawer is full before we ever get to thinking about that"

sigh People wonder why nothing gets done...

Hey, look - he is also Chinese, I wonder why his platform would include changing American values to mirror Chinese values?

Oh... yeah.

Atlantis PICTURED? 'Tip of lost city' discovered by stunned historian (Daily Star Tabloid w/ more science than mainstream science, lol) by Vigte in YoungerDryas

He detailed to Daily Star Online exclusively: "Plato's words say it went under about 11,600 years ago, which is the same time as the Younger Dryas event.

"This was when Earth was coming out of the Ice Age and everything was getting warmer but, all of a sudden, about 12,900 years ago, it went freezing cold again.

"Then about 1000 years later it warmed again and it has been getting warmer to this day.

"So there was a really cold stage where it was like a mini Ice Age and it is believed a comet hit the Earth at that time too.

"This is said to have caused a cooling period.

But the IPCC continues to underplay the risk of catastrophic nonlinearities, of the sort that knocked the world into the Younger Dryas, or which, via cascading climate tipping points, could before long propel runaway warming.

About 15,000 years ago, as the last ice age retreated, Greenland made a sudden about-face, and plunged back into a deep freeze in a series of steps. Full ice-age conditions reigned again for 1,200 years – a period geologists call the Younger Dryas – until about 11,600 years ago. That’s when conditions reversed course again, this time in one giant leap.

Robert Kennedy Jr. wins case against U.S. government for vaccine safety violations by useless_aether in news

Not sure what the Kennedy assassination JPGs have to do with this AMAZING use of FOIA - but I got lost in them before I even clicked on the link, lol!

The article really shows the benefit of actually reading these long-winded bureaucratic documents and using FOIA and the courts to basically force their compliance. Civilian monitoring groups are the key - atleast if we intend to continue with this or a similar system.

Yeah, it's like it selectively stretches/warps around the object, rather than being torn by it.

Pretty cool - more or less the basic beginnings of the cool electric Batcape in the Dark Knight (the carbon fiber skeleton that activates with electricity).

The new face of South American people (Contradictory) by Vigte in YoungerDryas

Study by 72 researchers from eight countries concludes that the Lagoa Santa people are descendants of Clovis culture migrants from North America. Distinctly African features attributed to Luzia were wrong.

How can these people be descendants of the Clovis, if the last thing I posted was about as Clovis coming from them?

Science has no idea what is going on.

How people first inhabited the Americas: It's complicated by Vigte in YoungerDryas

[–]Vigte[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Background: Existing theories range from people arriving via what was then the Bering Land Bridge between Russia and Alaska or coming along the Pacific Coast — and at different times.

Relatively new information has shown there were likely people in North America before the so-called Clovis occupants around 13,000 years ago.

Previous genomic studies have suggested the first American populations diverged from their Siberian and East Asian ancestors nearly 25,000 years ago and then split into distinct North and South American populations about 10,000 years later.

And this:

The researchers also discovered a population about 11,700 years ago that had Australasian ancestry evident only in South America (it hasn't been found in North America yet).

The first wave consisted of people related to a child buried some 12,600 years ago in Montana with artifacts from the Clovis people. The second wave of migrants replaced them about 9,000 years ago. Then, some 4,200 years ago, people from California’s Channel Islands migrated south and spread across the Central Andes.

Directly contradictory to other "up to date" evidence.

Retracing Antarctica's glacial past by Vigte in YoungerDryas

The scientists confirmed that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet had begun contracting and a relatively small ice shelf existed by 14,000 years ago. The ancient Ross Sea Ice Shelf then collapsed and calved into the ocean about 12,300 years ago.

Yeah because it was the end of the world at that exact time.

Anthropologist finds high number of developmental anomalies in Pleistocene people by Vigte in YoungerDryas

[–]Vigte[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Erik Trinkaus, an anthropologist at Washington University, has found what he describes as "an abundance of developmental anomalies" in people that lived during the Pleistocene.

Hmm

Trinkaus found that among the fossil samples was evidence of 75 abnormalities. He also found that approximately two-thirds of those anomalies showed up in less than 1 percent of modern humans. He also found that the abnormalities came about due to a variety of ailments such as blood disorders or hydrocephaly—but a lot of them could not be traced to a cause. He suggests the number of abnormalities is extremely high for such a small group of fossils.

Yep, I got banned on r/conspiracy for saying this to people a few months ago.

Most "conspiracy researchers" are NPCs too... they want SOMETHING they've said to be true, so they can say "see! I told you so!" and maybe their life won't suck so much, or so they think.
