It is, I tried to isolate whether a hole in the magnetosphere could create sounds with the air at the bottom(top of atmosphere) and with the electro magnetic particles caught up in eddies at the top of the hole reacting with the solar wind, I thought that would be simple, but it seems none wanted to focus on that and wanted to focus on whether I am a worthy person or other outlandish things like making sounds in space and with bodies millions of miles away, as I am unable to express what I was looking for I have given up, I thought what I have said at the start would be seen for what it is as described above but this is not a chat to have with most of the people here.

Apparently nobody wants to talk about 9/11 being a Jewish conspiracy, either. Tsk.

LOL, I knew it would not last long, just showing how destructive I can be, wont waste my time on the minnows here. I will go for the throats of those on top, I find the genghis khan way the best, kill them all then you are bound to get the right one, now as for your statement, you have DNA proof as to who these people are, because you are wrong, their DNA is pure white, not one Semitic drop of blood in them.

Marigold, I don't know what, if anything, Lucinda knows. I have read a lot of her posts on a lot of subjects and she has invariably returned to the theme "this is why SL is dying". Sometimes it's because the other merchants shut her out. Sometimes it's because LL has such terrible policies. Sometimes it's because all of 'us bullies' pick on Lucinda. I consider Lucinda to be a troll.

My only comment in this thread concerned the 'sun rises early in Greenland' comment. Residents of the city of Ilulissat reported that they saw the sun for the first time this year on Jan. 11, when it should not have been visible until Jan 13. There were no measurements. There appear to have been no scientific studies. There do not seem to be any reports of such a thing happening anywhere else in Greenland or in the world, for that matter.

For such a thing to have happened due to a change in either the Earth's tilt or rotation (something clearly implied by Lucinda's thesis) the repercussions would have been worldwide and instant. Whether the sun really did go above the horizon, I don't know. I think it more likely that atmospheric conditions made it appear that sun was above the horizon. EITHER way, it could not have been a result of anything to do with a 7-mooned brown dwarf supposedly moving in from the Oort Cloud.

Lucinda just throws a bunch of unrelated stuff out there and then arrogantly insults anyone who questions the opinion, all the while providing zero links to any confirming articles or data, other than one photo on what appears to be her blog. I don't think there's a gang of bullies out to get Lucinda. I think Lucinda is a troll and enjoys causing a fuss.

You're going about this in the wrong way.

Take in a deep breath, exhale, relax, resume breathing normally.

You are far from alone in your quests and in your understanding of truths and facts. The fact that your research has sources, confirms that you are not alone.

Do not internalize your data, it's not about you, or your readers.

 

You might see the humor, when I suggest that you beat around the bush, just like moses. He beat that bush, he was poun... on.... never mind.

 

 

I visited a website that claimed to be the good people. At the website is a special offer for those who join early.

What kind of "good" person would set-up a hierarchical system offering advantageous positions for only a select few?

They are not the good people.

I heard a whistling meteor one night back in 1993 or so. The sound seemed to emanate from the power/telephone wiring just over my head at the exact instant of a very bright flash as the meteorite streaked overhead. Alas I did not see it directly, just my shadow moving across the ground, it was that bright. Ham radio operators hear meteorites all the time. That said, if you wish to detect the ultimate cause of these sounds, we've been doing it for ages with radios. I'm not terribly worried that people are hearing things which aren't being detected already by other means.

There is, I think, a common misperception that only big governments have the ability to see certain things, and they regularly hide them from us. In fact, there are a great many amateur eyes and ears watching and listening all the time, all over the world, under different governments and having different cultures and beliefs. Many amateur astronomers are also ham radio operators, and there are even amateur radio-astronomers in the mix. So, all those eyes and ears can easily communicate DIRECTLY with each another across the globe if they wish, with no "censored internet" between them. Given these facts, I think a conspiracy of silence would be hard to achieve on such a grand scale.

I am also old and tired.  When I was 16-18, I would meet my young friends at certain places in my town, and the world belonged to us and us alone. We knew it all.  Now the town belongs to the 16-18 year olds, and they know it all, of course.  :matte-motes-wink:

Ignorance can be bliss.  I fear I am ignorant in many things, but what I don't understand, I endeavour to learn about, and if I ever put anyone down, it is done unintentionally.

You started a potentially interesting thread, you must focus on the like-minded within it, and discard the flippant and unkind.  If someone treats you like you do not matter, better not to even acknowledge they exist, because we don't know what lies behind harsh words, not really; maybe simple arrogance, maybe mental illness. 


Mari, your "you must focus on the like-minded" seems to contradict your "I endeavour to learn". Do we learn from the like minded? As as to Lucinda's focus, it does seem laser-like to me.



Does it seem to?

And yes, you can learn from the like-minded, those being people with similar interests and leanings, rather than those who dismiss your beliefs, if you get what I mean.

Luci, like everyone, knows what she knows, researches what she's interested in, and just seemed to me to wish to discuss those interests.  What followed was a mix of like-minded people also wishing to discuss the theories, along with "the usual" people who just wanted to put her down for wanting to discuss something a little bit out of their range of interest.

So I don't believe my statement was contradictory at all.


I've seen Lucinda put down a lot of people who have presented facts which seem to be outside her range of interest. I think I could mount an argument that facts themselves are outside Lucinda's area of interest. Perhaps she's a performance artist, who knows.

I am reminded of "balance in journalism" arguments which claim that every argument has two sides, with the implication that those sides are equally valid. That's simply not true.

The preponderance of the evidence is against Lucinda's contentions here. When that is pointed out she puts down the presenter. I have had long civil discourses with people who's beliefs I do not hold. Sometimes they move my needle a little. That's unlikely in Lucinda's case, as her arguments are often neither factual nor rational. If pointing that out feels harsh or arrogant, I don't know what's to be done about it.

I enjoy satire, but not sarcasm. It's tricky to avoid turning the one into the other when only a few people are involved. Lucinda eppears to enjoy sarcasm, but only if she's delivering it. It hardly seems fair for her to decry receiving it in return.

Spot on Dillon. I did some research on this and atmospheric phenomenon seems to be the most plausible explanation.

It is said that the sun rose on the 11th January in Ilulissat, two days earlier than expected but there are no photographs or data relating to this. People should remember that for this area, the sun rises almost due south and for the ceremony of watching the sun rise, the locals go to the top a nearby hill looking over the Ilulissat Fjord. It's not watched from the town itself.

On the 13th January, the sun rose, just peeping over the horizon, as expected although said to be 30 minutes late. What gives credence to the atmospheric phenomenon is that the sun did not rise on the 12th January at this location, thus dispelling any nonsense about a shift in the tilt of the Earth. This is a photo of sunrise from the hill above Ilulissat on the 13th January.

sol13januar_ilulissa_21246a.jpg

The tilt of the Earth occurs over a period of 26, 000 years so 13,000 years each way before it gets back to where it was. Any change in the Earth's tilt would have been immediately noticed by every observatory in the world whose telescopes are permanentl polar aligned and this did not happen. It would have made headline news in every paper and media. It just did not happen. The tilt of the Earth is exactly what it should be.
