Apollo moon mirrors/laser tonight - and observatory update (self-powered?!) by Vigte in space

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

So, a short caveat about this video, it's half wrap-up video, half making plans (and a bit of youtube drama that's... whatever)

Tonight the youtuber will be going to watch the laser shoot the mirrors on the moon. This itself proves nothing, but he did say what I've been thinking for a long time: We did land on the moon, it just wasn't what we SAW on the TV (basically, yeah Kubrick fakes the moon landing, but something DID occur up there).

As for the observatory, after a day of reflection, he comes up with a question: how is the observatory powered? Evidently he saw no power rooms or generators, not even any overt wiring while he was there - and an offhand comment from one of the engineers made him ask some questions.

"Whenever the power fails we have to go up to the telescope and reset some things for it to come back".

Well the telescope has a mercury layer in it and a mercury bearing at the bottom - just like the Tesla tower. It also possesses one of the largest lasers in the world (for shooting at the moon) - theoretically if this laser were hijacked and aimed at something else, it could be devastating (perhaps another reason for the closure?).

I'm still on the fence about it. Nothing saying he couldn't be right.

He needs to put up or pay up. If he can't provide evidence of these people, no one can.

Well, I did find this but everyone ignores me when I point it out.

Check out the review by ML B from Austin Texas.

Explanation? LARP for reopening?

Besides, the FBI was there 3-4 days ago, anything they were looking for they already got and left with. Everyone was too slow, even if it was a real thing/more important than just chinese spies.

Scientists Say They've Found The Driver of False Beliefs, And It's Not a Lack of Intelligence (At least they don't call us stupid anymore!) by Vigte in news

Why is it sometimes so hard to convince someone that the world is indeed a globe, or that climate change is actually caused by human activity, despite the overwhelming evidence?

The test takers had no clues as to what a Daxxy was or wasn't, but they did get feedback after guessing one way or the other – the system would tell them if the shape they were looking at qualified as a Daxxy or not. At the same time they were also asked how sure they were about what a Daxxy actually was.

In this way the researchers were able to measure certainty in relation to feedback. Results showed the confidence of the participants was largely based on the results of their last four or five guesses, not their performance overall.

Well, they've admitted we aren't "unintelligent" - just misled by feedback.

Thus substantiating some kind of separation of people with "incorrect and similar beliefs"?

Not to mention the test itself sounds completely ridiculous and asinine.

Defango actually drives out to Sunspot and takes a look around instead of just listening to the internet, while his chat does interwebs research on the fly.

A beyond fantastic exploration of the human mind, religion/spirituality, drugs and society.

“There exists, for everyone, a sentence - a series of words - that has the power to destroy you. Another sentence exists, another series of words, that could heal you. If you're lucky you will get the second, but you can be certain of getting the first.”

“It is amazing that when someone else spouts the nonsense you yourself believe you can readily perceive it as nonsense”

“Once, in a cheap science fiction novel, Fat had come across a perfect description of the Black Iron Prison, but set in the far future. So if you superimposed the past (ancient Rome) over the present (California in the twentieth century) and superimposed the far future world of The Android Cried Me a River over that, you got the Empire, as the supra- or trans-temporal constant. Everyone who had ever lived was literally surrounded by the iron walls of the prison; they were all inside it and none of them knew it.”
