Another thing which to me is a big mystery also. No-one knows how the pyramids were built, given the tools available at the time, and they also look best if seen from the air.

I went to Egypt in the late 80s and was astounded by all that I saw and not disappointed in any way.

... some very credible people have explained in great detail what they saw on a dark night out doing their job (police etc) ... - and sober. These people in my opinion were unshakable in what they witnessed ... These people definitely saw something.


... including our member and friend, Rab - except that he refused to go into great Detail.
C'mon Rab, I know it's the wrong Topic but we'll forgive you mate. wink.gif

There are always sweeping statements about The Imminent Discovery Of Life On Other Planets. And they`re usually issued around the same time when NASA`s knocking on Washington`s door cap in hand.

And what is this "Life, Jim. But not as we know it"? Germs. Molecules. Microbodes. No ET`s. No Xenomorphs. No nubile, young Benny Hill extras.

In the meantime, get a load of all them wicked Nebula shots. What a desktop background! And it only cost the US taxpayer umpteen billions over the last half century. Why pish all that dough away on schools or hospitals when you can have a great Flick`r account? And, in the interests of fairness, let`s not forget, Teflon non-stick frying pans came out of all that investment...

Don't be an angry Rat. Without all that research and development we wouldn't have people like Richard Branson settin' us up with cheap space flights soon tongue.gif


I`ve got a mate Stateside and he stays down New Mexico way where Big Rick has his Trek Trips based. He managed to sweettalk US politicos in giving him sh*tloads of dosh for the prestige of having this in their backyard. Branson got the Yanks to subside his FirstBus shebang! Despite the locals and taxpayers doing their damndest to oppose it.

Some guy that Branson! I hope HE doesn`t go into politics!

Another often-quoted myth: TEFLON was patented in 1945! A wee bit before we went into space! Also quoted NASA spinoffs are Memory Foam and Velcro, neither of which had any basis in the space programme, although they may have been used in space. yes.gif


I stand corrected. But, nonetheless, can you really say, on balance, ALL THAT MONEY tossed at NASA. Do you really feel comfortable with the idea it`s money well spent when it could`ve/ should`ve been spent on schools and hospitals?

Compared to the money that's spent on arms and wars i would say that is money well spent, it's always been the instinct of man to explore beyond our boundaries, "space" as James Tiberius Kirk once said was "the final frontier" if we hadn't explored and developed as a species we would probably still be living in caves.

Wossat? Crikey, you've got a good memory! I suppose you need one on here. I guess you are referring to my reluctance to explain my Golden Balls experience? I feared alarm and despondency in the British population, not to mention panic about what I saw that terrible night. I still shudder at the memory.
