plwhit. . .You're my hero.

But, to make a relevant post, yes, we landed on the moon, the Allen Belt debate is laughable, pointing a shuttle at the moon and that's all could, possibly, be the single, most ignorant thing I've ever seen on the internet, Aldrin punching that guy was priceless and still is, the "tin can" argument is equally laughable, and the amount of self hijacking, and backtracking, is the worst I've ever seen on any messageboard ever; not to mention how ironic it is to read someone's posts who is trying so hard to be intelligent, yet with so many errors.

OP, plwhit, thanks for making my day.

Now, if only someone could direct me to the thread where he talks about geological formations, I'd be most appreciative.

It's the one for "serious scientists only" and it's deteriorated as much as this one.

I repeatedly ask why he thinks he is qualified to participate, education, degrees, certifications, and he says he sleepy, or that I'm mad, but has yet to tread anywhere near answering.

I suspect his credentials are that he is currently taking an 8th grade natural science class at his middle school.

And sidestepping. He has yet to acknowledge facts others and I have pointed out to him, sidestepping them to bring up other things instead.

Something else has been puzzling me too. In his mountain thread, he mentions many times that these are his original ideas (which was pointed out to him numerous times that others have come up with them in the past) and says he wants nobody to steal or use them, at least not without giving him the proper credit. Posting something you feel is original to yourself on a public internet forum is not a smart idea. It is not proof that an idea or invention is your own, nor is it a copyright.

I would like to have a psychologist go over the OP's posts and give an opinion.

That would be an eye opener.

And, what did any psychologist ever do to you to rate that sort of punishment?

I'm not saying your wrong OK...but I need to know why you couldn't just fly a shuttle to the moon...



And then land it on the surface like a Harriar jump jet....
Why could we not build or modify the old shuttles to do that?

Also, form what you know...is there 'wind' in space...
I saw a Star Wars episode, where some of the crafts had 'sails'...they were either sails or solar sails or both.

Since there's so much raw radiation in space, is solar energy more efficient in space?

And I'll find some American rockets here in a bit...
Oh, brother.

I give up. If something in your head didn't "click" with the Prius analogy, then trying to help you to understand is a completely lost cause.

Have a good life. My guess is that you will - you know what they say equates to bliss...

I've suggested and then begged T&S to go get psychological assistanse, but alas no reply.

I wonder if T&S is also the person who kept that lead shielding for the Smart Meters running for so long, that thread, the way it read and was pressented was just like this and the liquid mountains thread..

Thanks to my 5th dimension intelligence sources on Orion Prime they tell me most Earthlings are pushing to land there again on the moon due to the opening of the playplay Omegatron facilities and the pleasure droids designed for Earthlings
