1986: Coverage of the Challenger explosion
davknight comments on Jan 29, 2019:
I was sitting on my couch, watching the 'Today Show' coverage. A thought flashed through my mind. 'Watch it blow up!'. Then, for a brief second, I 'saw' it blow up. It was a very visual image, like i was watching it on TV. Only it was still on the launch pad. Then, it was launched; and a few moments later, it blew up in flight. Then, I could remember feeling guilty about the whole thing. But what could I have done? Anyone else ever have a pre-cognitive experience? I have had a few. Some of which saved my life.
Wednesday it is forecasted to be -11 F. Sunday 40F. weather in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin.

Once, when I was younger, I thought I'd grow a beard. But I lived in a region of ferocious, arctic-like winters. And if I stayed outside for any length of time, stalactites of ice would grow in my whiskers, causing them to clank like wind chimes, when I walked. I finally got tired of clinking, and shaved the thing off!

What strikes you as odd in the old testament?
davknight comments on Jan 28, 2019:

Is the US about to invade Venezuela?
davknight comments on Jan 26, 2019:
I hope not. The Venezuelan Army alone, fields 550,000 troops. In addition, there are nearly 1,000,000 National Guard and Militia. Trump thinks it would be a walk-in, like Granada, or Panama. But the Venezuelans are much more numerous, and heavily armed. They have invested their oil money in their military over the years, in anticipation of a US invasion. And the Americans would certainly sustain heavy losses. It would just be another money-draining 'forever war'.

You can't outlaw Human knowledge. Nor can you keep it secret. If you were whatever Homo Habilus who discovered fire, a million years ago, you could only keep it 'secret' a little while. You can outlaw guns, or drugs. But you can't outlaw the knowledge to manufacture them.
When you map it all out the effect is astounding.
davknight comments on Jan 26, 2019:
When Maduro's 72 hrs are up, we can make it 57. Trump would give nothing more than a casus belli for US military intervention in Venezuela. For no other reason than to show what a "tough" guy he is, to regain some of his lost support.

davknight comments on Jan 25, 2019:
It takes as long to impeach one, as it does to campaign for, and elect one. And even if impeached, they can always challenge it in court. In Merry Olde England, of just three-hundred years ago, a guy like Trump would have been pulled apart by horses, hung in chains, drawn n quartered, and have his head carried through the streets on a pike. But alas, nowadays, we must give them their 'due process'.

davknight comments on Jan 24, 2019:
The Trump regime seems to be using the US Embassy in Caracas as human bait, for Maduro to snap at--thus providing the casus belli for US military intervention. Meanwhile, Venezuela is mobilizing its massive militia, to support the Venezuelan military in repelling a US invasion. We'll see what happens when the 72-hr ultimatum is up. Trump has been discussing this with his aides for some time. And he just may view US intervention as a way of boosting his sagging poll numbers; as well as taking away public attention fro the Mueller investigation.

Brave? Heroic?
davknight comments on Jan 17, 2019:
Glorification of the US Military goes back to the post-Vietnam War period. The Pentagon decided to undertake a massive makeover of the military's PR image. One of the methods they used was to make available to filmmakers, cash grants, if they were making a film that glorified, or inspired sympathy for the military.A similar project was undertaken by the old Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, to improve the public's perception of the police. In that case, funds were made available to offset the production costs of 'cop shows' on TV. So, the US population has undergone nearly 50 years of pro- police/military psychological conditioning in that regards.

An Austrian ArchDuke got bumped off, while visiting Serbia. Austria-Hungary claimed Serbia was responsible, and invaded the joint. But, Serbia was allied with Russia, which put Russia in the war. But, Austria-Hungary was allied with Germany, which put Germany in the war. But, Russia was allied with France, which put France in the war. In order to beat up the French quickly, and then turn East to face the Russians, Germany invaded France by way of Belgium, which put Belgium in the war. But, Belgium was a protectorate of Great Britain, which put Britain in the war.But, the Ottoman Turkish empire was allied with Germany, which put the Turks in the war. In short, my children, it was one huge and mindless catastrophe, which claimed 15 million military dead. (No one ever tabulated the civilian deaths). To historians, it is considered a classic example of the dangers posed by competing alliances.

It seems that being atheist or agnostic is now looked at as a type of religion
davknight comments on Jan 11, 2019:
Religion says 'believe it'. Science says 'prove it'. Atheism is indeed another form of religion. The atheist says 'there is no god, no great pumpkin, no great bunny rabbit, no way, no how!'. Yet, they cannot prove, or disprove their assertion. They just expect you to believe it. That's why I choose to be agnostic. Agnosticism is the scientific approach.
