Watched "Impossible Engineering" last night, topic 

Duge Beipanjiang Bridge
 
 in southwest China,  now the highest bridge in the world, some 565 metres (1,854 feet) above the valley below. The bridge stretches across a 1,341-metre (4,400-foot) span.
 
They call the valley the bridge spans "the crack in the world".

What hearsay crock, no names, photos, videos!  Someone was told something without evidence?

Excerpt...

“A person was possessed and it took four fully grown men to hold this person down,” Szada said.

 I see that and more on "Live PD" every week! :lol:  Exorcist should be thankful the person wasn't on PCP!

Dreams can be amazing at times, when I was 12 (1967) had a hard time sleeping.  When I finally did, had the most VIVID dream ever - still remember it to this day, part of it was some strange huge machines with legs in some  dark swampy marsh.  When I woke up in a cold sweat, said to myself WHAT IN THE HECK DID I JUST DREAMED??

My jaw hit the floor in 1980 after purchasing the LP soundtrack of "Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back" open the jacket and saw...

The Imperial Walkers was exactly what I dreamed but in a swamp not snow.

Can science EXPLAIN how that is possible?  This was 13 years after my experience!

 

That's another thing I missed about the LP's and Laserdisc, the enclosed photo album.

Now if we can send 100,000 emus to our border - not to offer anyone to pay for what they need though. ;)

The harpy eagle is considered one of the most powerful eagles of the over 100 different species of these birds of prey.

They have been found living in the jungles of Mexico all the way down to Northern Argentina. They need the space of larger trees in the canopy of lowland tropical rainforests. It is here where the harpy eagle makes its nest.

They use the tallest trees in the jungle to construct their home. This nest, which may be constructed from sticks, branches, plants and animal fur will be used multiple times and will continually be added to, creating an enormous dwelling that can fit a human.

Atheist laughs at the Bible quoting making streets of gold.   This ONE kilonova event can pave THOUSANDS of Earth type planets in gold!

9:10 time mark and listen!

I'm guessing that atheists are still laughing. And they have good reasons to do so.

Can't explain how a guy 2,000 years ago knew how gold or ANY metal can be forged translucent? The first metal.... aluminum has been made just that!

Aluminium oxynitride aka Transparent Aluminum 

Like the kind in Star Trek!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium_oxynitride

 

 

 

John  was seeing future technology and tried to describe it.  Just because we can't acquire large quantities of gold, make it PURE (not 99.9%) and translucent TODAY doesn't mean some future generation won't be able to.  The "Great City" in nothing more than a  MASSIVE gravity to energy converter.

 

I'm still in awe we actually have done this! Hard to believe this is a METAL!
