Most of the usual explanations don’t make any sense. Like panic, keeping the secret, national defense or they don’t exist. None of that holds much water. I keep coming back to the conclusion that the only reason that they’re hiding this is because of the horrible things they’ve done to hide it9 AnswersMythology & Folklore5 days ago
The United States government feels it has the right to lie to us at any time for any reason and they abuse that right constantly. They use the excuse of secrecy, national security and others. I contend that they have absolutely no reason to lie to us ever. I contend that there is no situation where silence wouldn’t suffice. I contend that the government does NOT have the right or reason to lie to us.5 AnswersGovernment5 days ago
How many, if any, deaths is Trump’s presidency going to be indirectly responsible for by the the end of the year?
We know, despite Republicans trying to cover it up, that he withheld aid from the Ukraine for political reasons, aid that might have helped people stay alive. We know he has indirectly incited his followers to violence which may have resulted in people dying and he is still doing that. The majority of the medical profession thinks that the administration has
mishandled the covid epidemic causing unnecessary deaths. They are trying to experiment on kids and teachers in September, hoping many of them don’t die, for purely economic reasons to get re-elected. In the coming months he will use every dirty trick that isn’t explicitly illegal to try to win reelection, how many of his followers are going to do violence listening to his lies?10 AnswersPolitics3 weeks ago
I was sitting about a mile from the mouth of a river on the shore. It was a warm summer evening. Looking south towards the mouth I saw an orange light coming up the river at least a thousand feet up. It followed the river until it came to a bridge where the highway crossed and then it turned east and followed the highway until it went out of sight a few miles away. A couple minutes after it disappeared another one came in and did the exact same thing. I would say that each one was in visible range about 10 minutes. They were already at altitude when they came into sight and they faded in the distance, they didn't go out. They were orange like a flame but visually they were a sphere with no details or flickering.
When I first saw them it never occurred to me that they could be Chinese lanterns, now I'm wondering if they could be. They didn't seem to look or act quite like Chinese lanterns. Also I thought the wind went out towards the sea at night, however they went directly over the river upriver and turned 90 degrees exactly over the highway and followed over it until they went out of sight.
Only answers from people who know something about wind, weather or Chinese lanterns please.4 AnswersAstronomy & Space2 months ago
How do we avoid sending someone to a colony, on an airless planet like the moon or mars, who snaps and is able to destroy the colony?
It seems to me that any colony on the moon or mars could probably be easily sabotaged to blow the atmosphere and decompress killing a lot of people. As the population grows there will inevitably be a percentage of the population with the potential to snap and try and kill everybody. People in these places would have the knowledge and training to do a lot of damage if they wanted. i'm wondering if human nature would make these kinds of colonies impossible.3 AnswersAstronomy & Space3 months ago
Suggestions for computer hardware for writing, that can be left on 24/7 and used at a moments notice before ideas are forgotten?

A bakery that's closed now made pumpernickel bread loaves with black seeds on top. They were about the size of a sesame seed but were almost cubic in shape and had a unique spice type flavor. Anyone have any idea what they are? (they are not black sesame)Ethnic Cuisine4 years ago
I'm retired, single, taking care of and living with my parents, 87 and 90. Need help dealing with the situation.?
I'm retired, single, taking care of and living with my parents who get SS. My mother is 87 and father 90. They are both getting forgetful and can't get by alone anymore. I'm just about at my limit with dealing with this. I don't have the temperament to be a nurse. We don't have a lot of money to throw at recurring costs but we do own the house and a little property which might be sold if necessary. I would welcome ANY detailed responses with suggestions on how I might deal with this, especially from anyone who is or has had to already.8 AnswersFamily4 years ago
I've been reading a lot of reviews on induction ranges, from Kenmore to Viking, and they seem to all be plagued with reliability issues turning up in a year or 2. If you have one, what is it and how long have you had it and has it broke down? I would love to get one but they aren't cheap and I want something to last much more than a couple years.2 AnswersOther - Home & Garden7 years ago
I liked Diablo 2. Diablo 3 is about to come out for the PS3. I've heard that it isn't as good as 2.
I liked the first versions of Dungeon Siege but the last one (3?) was a complete rip off with no replayability besides being nothing like the earlier versions. Is Diablo 3 going to be like that? Should I skip it?5 AnswersVideo & Online Games7 years ago
