wow, this looks fun, relaxing, and entertaining… and perhaps even Productive! I could use a break.
I had a thread of mine kicked into Skunk Works… never really poked around in here much. Glad that happened and here I am.
Just some stuff, not taking sides or anything…
Outside the box is On the ball.
We only know what we perceive. If you think you know something that isn’t based upon your perceptions, I’d be Very Curious as to what that is.
If you do an extensive and exhaustive google search and public records search and can find NO records of any kind whatsoever as to the existence of my
great great great grandfather, does that mean he did not exist?
google is not the be all end all in knowledge. nor is wikki. some information has Never been digitized. there’s a lot of out of print music I
can’t find even on vinyl.
sputnik was metallic silver, very reflective… perhaps a flat black paint job would make things a bit harder to see (U2?)
they guy was stoned, but he Still managed to hack into a secure system… odd that. any non-stoned people here capable of pulling off the same feat?
(no boasts, let’s see the money)
we’re told all of these people are the enemy, but have you ever actually gone and Talked to the enemy? we’re told that these are the Only
launches that have happened… how sure of we are that and why? we’re told by the people in power that they have everything under control, no cause
for alarm, just shut up and toe the line… god forbid we should cha cha when everybody else is goose stepping.
we could Never reverse engineer alien technology because it would be MILLIONS (or Thousands) of years ahead of us and we’re just too lame to figure
it out… we went from horse and buggies to atomic weapons and space travel in 100 years… have faith in the human learning curve, we’re not That
production facilities on the moon would require too many people and too many supply drops to go unnoticed … the ‘unnoticed’ part ties in with
what we’re told… are you Looking? or are you letting someone else look and Trusting what they tell you?
too many people… I have some Small experience with this. I worked on an island in Alaska. Alaska is known as the Last Frontier. it was not THE
most remote place on earth, but it Was out there. It was a closed environment. The business was seafood, which is both seasonal and time sensitive.
If equipment broke down or personnel died off, that was that, we Had to make due with what we had and solve the problems ourselves. In most cases
replacements could not be brought in in time to have any impact on our immediate needs.
500 people CAN harvest, process, package, and ship 30 million pounds of finished product in 70 days. This is Finished Product, close to 60 million
pounds was coming into the factory to get that 30 million pounds coming out. Processing involved a wide variety of procedures. Turning any raw
material into finished products could utilize similar production techniques.
One human being, (yours truly) can lift 200,000 pounds in 16 hours providing that all the items being lifted weigh 50 pounds per unit (or less).
My personal best (in lifting) was 40,000 pounds in one hour and twenty eight minutes (at age 34 no less *laughs*)
When a crucial piece of machinery Vital to the shipping operations of our facility blew up and replacement parts could not be obtained for some Weeks,
and our shop personnel could not fabricate the needed parts, two bozoboys (my boss and I) devised a new procedure that bypassed the broken tool
completely using nothing but a bit of rope and a hunk of metal. It wasn’t as fast, efficient, or as Safe as using the designated piece of
machinery, but It Worked and allowed us to maintain production through the rest of the season.
moral: never underestimate the strength and ingenuity of dedicated and determined human beings.
air and water on the moon. water, ammonia, and methane ice are available in comets and perhaps asteroids. ice of this type may even be available in
the various Trojan points. diverting it to atomic and solar powered processing stations on a moon (any moon) does not seem far fetched.
some fungus, bacteria and algae are high in proteins and other nutrients. complex sugars and fats are harder to come by but not impossible to
fabricate from the above mentioned resources.
the only thing proven by a lack of proof is that there is a lack of proof. any other conclusion is kind of silly.
super secret jet black high tech united earth space fleet? sure, why not? sounds about as reasonable as a $500 hammer…. how many of Those has our
gov’ment bought with our tax dollars?
