The producer of this Youtube video should send the idea of making a "Predator vs The Engineers" to Ridley Scott, John Davis and Joel Silver.  Could make for a great movie instead of rehashing the 1987 movie in a 2018 sequel.

Gravitational wave detection from collision of black holes shows shape of ripples for first time-

 

The findings provide astronomers with an extra dimension of detail on the warping that occurs when two giants of the universe collide......

The one thing I don't agree on about black holes is the belief there is NOTHING there but a singularity.  If this is the case, why do BH's have different masses? :huh:

 

Just because one can't see past the event horizon doesn't mean there is not a super massive object 10 - 10,000X heavier than a neutron star.  Couldn't there be a small sphere of subatomic matter only - more exotic than the neutronic matter of a neutron star?

Seen the brightest meteor tonight, lasted about 2 seconds.  This was no ordinary shooting star.  By chance I was looking up toward the south. :)

When i lived in the Arizona desert ~45 years ago i remember seeing a few meteors light up the sky so bright it was almost like day.

I could see the desert all around including the distant mountains very clearly,but they only lasted a few seconds.

I remember seeing one meteor explode with a loud bang and fragments of the rock going different directions,but the explosion wasn't anything like what happened over Russia a couple of years ago.

Russian ‘Cannibal Couple’ Suspected Of Killing, Eating Up To 30 People

 

Authorities were said to have found pickled human remains in glass jars and photos of severed body parts in the couple’s home.

 

It was a chance discovery of a cellphone on a street that led investigators in the southwestern Russian city of Krasnodar to arrest a husband and wife, dubbed by local media the “cannibal couple,” suspected in one of the worst killing sprees in the nation’s history. Local news reports say the couple may have killed and eaten dozens of victims since the 1990s.

Maybe this would have been better in one of Nipkow's food threads?

 

 

Something tells me that this will be a movie in next to no time.

Man builds his own mini levee to protect home

So as long the flood don't exceed 2 feet, he should be OK. :blink: :lol:

Somebody needs to build a levee around this thread to keep out the poli-ticks.  I just don't get a dopamine high like the rest of you from talking about that stuff.  There are fewer and fewer threads that I can think of anything to post in.

What do you mean "speak for yourself"?  All of mankind's history happened on Earth (the little dot).  Are you from somewhere else? :lol:
