The following is Mike's recent view of our universe.
The dollar is as good as Monopoly money, both currencies are backed by Nothing. The dollar will fail.
According to Fox news Mar 25, 2010, the US is in debt of 5 & 38 trillion dollars respectively for social security and medicare. If I did the math correct we all would owe over 120 thousand dollars to pay off. I assumed a population of 350 million US people. 43E12/350E6 = 122.9E3 'dollars'.
Who remembers the microwave oven leakage scare? MW ovens are the ~same frequency as Bluetooth, Wi Fi, namely ~2.5 GHz.
The resonance size for 2.5 GHz approximates eyeball and/or gonads. Look at all the wireless headsets.... etc. Just learned, let's say sperm power compared to 50 years ago has been dropping. How many of us have a cell phone in their pocket? Cell phones operate at ~850 MHz, third harmonic = 2550 or back to 2.55 GHz. Of course cell phones have not been around for 50 years.
Most governments would want us to drop dead the day we retire.
Sodium Fluoride (NaF2) in most toothpaste is rat poison. No wonder you must rush your kids to the doctor. NaF2 is not calcium fluoride which was found to strengthen teeth in a small Texas town's water supply. The aluminum companies had huge piles of this rat poison lying around as a by product of aluminum manufacturing in the early 1900's. They then got the bright idea to put it in toothpaste. Teeth
MTBE is the acronym for methyl tertiary butyl ether, MTBE was a widely used gas additive in the 1990's by states in the NE and elsewhere to reduce pollution; used during the winter in the NE. Day one, BEFORE using it, the report on the safety of MTBE said it was dangerous and had an affinity for water (table). The whole NE? (California too) now has this in our drinking water, guess what, I never see MTBE as a tested dangerous chemical in any water tests(in ~ 2009 starting to see the MTBE levels being reported). MTBE etc.
2005, $1 out of every $3 spent for workers compensation is due to carpal tunnel syndrome. When the typewriter was first developed and released, it had to be redesigned. Too many people were typing too fast and jamming the mechanical hammers of the keyboard. The designers went back and redesigned the keyboard layout to slow down typists the greatest amount, and the result was the QWERTY layout. In the 1940's, Dr Dorvak created a newer layout optimized for speed and comfort as the first electric type writers came out. This is an available setting on modern computers.
The U.S. has the highest number of prisoners per capita.
The U.S. per person uses more drugs than the rest of the mature countries.
UFO's given the view of Frank Drake's equation they exist somewhere. What would a ancient egyptian think if a Harrier Jet landed close by and the pilot in their flight suit stepped out? And that is what? ~20,000 years of human progress. Planet Earth is ~ 4,500,000,000 (4.5 billion) years old. Most governments suppress most reports as it is known how civilizations can collapse with something new. So given this and other thoughts, maybe 1 or 2% of reports have some possible validity. 50% of all UFO reports identify the planet Venus as a UFO.
Most governments; Federal, State, and Local, spend money like 6 year olds. ANY cash laying around, they spend it. The U.S. government raided the social security fund for decades. New Jersey government raided the gas tax money for decades, duh now the roads and bridges are deteriorating from lack of funds. 90% of the money won by the states from the tobacco settlements is being spent on other pet projects/salaries. Who knows what our local government are doing!
