I do not know if all the talk about UAP and UFO is just a big lead up to a psyops ran by a few 3 letter agencies. Either or at least people are talking about and becoming more aware of the subject now.

  Blind Pilot ??
Posted by: 727Sky - Yesterday, 01:20 PM - Forum: Humor, Jokes & Pranks - Replies (2)

A WOMAN was flying from Seattle to San Francisco . Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, 'Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?' The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe  Buddy   would like to stretch his legs.'
Picture this:  All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!
True story... Have a great day and remember...

  Voyager 1 detects faint, persistent hum
Posted by: guohua - 05-10-2021, 05:48 PM - Forum: Science and Space...the Other Final Frontiers - Replies (7)


Quote:NASA's Voyager 1 detects faint, persistent hum beyond our solar system
This is interesting,,,, well sort of.
The fact that both Voyager 1 & 2 are operational is amazing.
Small Nuclear power packs works, but they won't mention that.
Quote:The farthest spacecraft from Earth, NASA's Voyager 1, said farewell to the solar system almost a decade ago, passing through an invisible door some 11 billion miles from Earth and crossing into interstellar space. Since then, it's tacked on another 3 billion miles and it's still sending data home, allowing scientists to probe the space between stars. 

In a paper, published in the journal Nature Astronomy on Monday, researchers examined data beamed back by Voyager 1's Plasma Wave

System (PWS) over its journey, but particularly after it passed through over the solar system's border.

The border is a messy "edge" where the sun's influence disappears and the interstellar medium begins.

The medium is typically characterized as empty, desolate and dark, but the PWS on Voyager 1 has detected a low, constant pattering against its detector, space raindrops gently falling on a window. Those drops signify plasma waves -- or interstellar gas -- is constant company for the spacecraft.

"We're detecting the faint, persistent hum of interstellar gas," said Stella Koch Ocker, a doctoral student at Cornell University who lead the research. "It's very faint and monotone, because it is in a narrow frequency bandwidth."

  It Was In A Book I Read...
Posted by: BIAD - 05-10-2021, 01:03 PM - Forum: A Rogue's Opinion Piece... - Replies (4)

Here's a true tale that some may find interesting, it involves the established media and how they perceive those
who aren't in their 'little clique' or those deemed deplorable by their manners or social-standing.

In 1983 -with assistance from my father who worked there for two decades, I got a job at a local newspaper.
The UK's recession was still bearing down on the North-East of England and employment was scarce for
both skilled and unskilled persons. So when my Pa mentioned that there was an opening at his place of work,
I willingly jumped at the chance.
However, he also mentioned it was 'drudge-work' and not elaborating, I ignored the comment and asked if he
could wrangle an interview.

Actually, there were two vacancies. Both positions required the person to start work at 6.00.am.
One was a cleaner's role, tidying-up an aging building and chasing the eternal grime that sought every surface.
Namely paper-dust and ink. Deliveries were to be carried in and the vast amount of rubbish to be taken out.

The other involved recycling the lead used in creating text for typesetting. You've seen the little metal blocks of
letters that are arranged to for a sentence...? Well, the material is reused, lead bars are put into a melting pot
of something called a Linotype machine (below) and cast into the words that will become the news that people
enjoy every morning. Then after use, the metal text is collected and melted down again into bars.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=9355]
A Linotype machine and the lead text. (The object with the 'V' at the top are keys that impress the letters
into the molten lead.)

For this type of employment there was a perk, a bonus -if you will. A free daily bottle of milk for the person melting
the wheelbarrow-loads of lead text back into bars. Apparently milk somehow stopped the fumes of the bubbling lead
bothering the human body!

Just as a side-note, I never saw a face-mask offered in the whole time that that particular job was open.

As it turned out -due to another person wishing for a position in the newspaper company and that had a relation
who was in the management, I got the cleaner's job. But considering the quiet hours of the day and having free
range of the building, the tasks kept me busy and I must admit, I enjoyed that time.

Years went by and the work became more varied. Occasionally, I'd assist on the Press and this brought large
amounts of overtime, a rare commodity these days with the introduction of 'flexibility'! With the evolution of
printing from Linotype to Phototypesetting systems, the need to have me available to help became more and
more vital. And oh how the money rolled-in!

From six o'clock in the morning, I'd work until the night arrived and sometimes it seemed it'd be easier if I should
just sleep on the premises. I knew everyone by their first names and when a person would ask if I could 'acquire'
something for them -folk who ranged from a common Press-hand to the Managing Director... well, the requested
article always seemed to end-up in their locker or on their desk.

But the one thing I found fascinating was the attitude from the Journalists during my years there.
Before the introduction of computers and with the initial early hours of my work, I would rarely meet anyone from
that profession. But as my tasks increased, one would possibly find me scouring-out a lavatory at 8.00.pm on a
winter's Wednesday night or dragging out piles of forgotten newspapers from beneath a Journalist's desk as
he-or-she looked on with their fellow-scribblers and discussed the merits of imaginary paper mites.

However, it always seemed I was unworthy of their parlance or being perceived away from my position with the firm.
I was a toilet-cleaner, ergo my intellect would struggle to comprehend their subtle bon mot and high prate.
Individually, a Journalist seemed equitable and even though I saw the veneer of their even-handedness was thin,
I always offered my genuine opinion and hoped that my guttural presentation didn't hinder my personal outlook.
But as a group, I was only tolerated by them.

Back to the meat of my yarn.

When the decision was made to print the newspaper at a remote site, it seemed like it was all hands to the pumps.
Days and nights merged with me and a younger co-worker assisting in making the changeover as smooth as possible.
Workers who'd already been presented with redundancy, were feebly asked if they didn't mind being on called if the
new project went tits-up and with a demand of a non-negotiable hourly payment from those asked, the workers agreed.

From time-to time, the brand-new Press -fifty-miles away, would break down and the ancient Hoe Printing Press back
home would rumble and shudder in it's dried-out foundations due to a Mall being built close by and its deeply-sunk piles
redirecting an underground waterway.

As the klaxon reverberated through the building, my friend and I would hurry with our current tasks and then dash to
where the grime and ink would fill our nostrils. We were printing.

Avoiding slicing our hands open, we'd carry magnetic plates from the foundry and appreciate that these flexible sheets
weighed far-less than the cast-lead half-moon plates. Then massive foot-crushing paper-reels were needed to be arranged
for a quick changeover, deadlines were never diluted -even if one's employment had been.

Running along the walkways of the roaring monster, we'd race towards helping the Despatch Room and prepare for another
night of not being home. The papers would arrive through an opening the wall on a conveyer-like appliance called 'The Fly'.
The constant row of newspapers would be separated by a single edition sticking out at the twentieth position, this was known
as 'the kick'.

Digging our fingers behind the kick, we would grab each choir (twenty) of papers and pile them up into a quantity of sixty
These piles were then taken away to be sorted into the correct amounts for Newsagents and then wrapped and sent out
to waiting delivery vans.

It seemed the hours that also piled up during that monotonous job would never end and even when a paper-reel changeover
was required and the fly was halted, this just meant that we had to hurry downstairs to help in getting the Press to roll again.

It was only when the welcomed shout that we were finished during one of these emergency printings, that I saw the reason
for my writing of this piece. The Despatch Room guys were wandering off to get their coats and call it a morning and I was
contemplating whether to empty all the trashcans before returning to the ground-floor in order to undress the Press from last
night's toil.

That was when I noticed six people standing near the Dispatch Room door.
There were three Journalists, another was a newly-trained IT guy and the other two were a Composing-Room Manager and
a photographer.

I nodded at them as I adjusted my overalls and wondered what these people could possibly be doing down here amongst the
unwashed and so late in the morning.
They never spoke as I passed by and only offered sheepish grins. Me...? I ran off to join my co-worker, if we were quick and
everything went by-the-book, we could get back to our daily tasks and look forward to getting home sometime in the early

Remember, we started at 6 o'clock every morning and were supposed to finish at two in the afternoon.
That luxury hadn't occurred in years and if one day spilled over to the next... then the overtime just piled-up like newspapers
coming off the Fly.

There's a book written by one of the Journalists that acknowledges me in helping of its creation. I'd progressed from smelling
of bleach and looking like I hadn't slept in months, to the adjustment and manipulation of physical photographs and electronic
images via a computer.

During this time, a chap from the Editorial Desk had decided to write a history of the very newspaper I worked at. A tome that
explained the socio-politics of creating an editorial at a time of local wealthy and powerful families and the realities of getting
such an undertaking off the ground. For my work in preparing the images for his endeavour, I and a fellow-worker were given
the book along with a thank you. A rare instance of humanity from a Journalist!

Only now, eleven years after being given the book, have I began to read it. I was just about to put it down after reading about
a past Editor who tragically died on the Titanic, when I thought I'd browse the images in the book that I'd been involved with.

There... towards the back-end of the book, in a chapter that explained the trials and tribulations of moving a modern-day
newspaper to a remote site, was a photograph. Holding a bound-parcel of newspapers and situated in the Dispatch Room,
three Journalists and the IT guy stood beaming into the camera. The Composing Room Manager stood next to the binding
-machine and looked like he'd just eaten a lemon.

Beneath the image was a caption that explained how this unflinching quintet had saved the day and 'mucked-in' to put the
paper to bed. I read the couple of sentences and suddenly, the faint whiff of Swarfega hand-cleaner passed my nostrils.
Now I believe it was to block out the bullshit if I'd given those words utterance.

Journalists... they move in mysterious ways.

  1st hundred days why am I not surprised ?

I for one am not surprised as Biden and his handlers are doing exactly what many of us thought he would do if elected. I never thought it would be so easy for someone and their party to steal an election.

Get ready and hang on, there’s more to come. And, it ain't gonna get better.
So, Russia is massing troops on the border with Ukraine. Ukraine is threatening to take Crimea back by force.
China is threatening Taiwan and its neighbors while also threatening our ships and Navy.

North Korea is testing missiles again and restarting their nuclear weapons program.

Iran has been emboldened and making more than their normal threats.

Our southern border is a humanitarian disaster caused directly by this administration, and the administration that promised transparency is hiding it and not letting the media have access.

Ford is closing a plant and moving it to Mexico after just bringing it back from Mexico because of the current Administration’s plan for Increased taxes.

Price of steel up 145%, lumber 126%, wheat up 25%, food index up 25%, cotton 35%, silver 38%, copper 50%, soybeans 71%, oil 80%, etc, etc.

Pipeline jobs lost.

Wall construction jobs lost.

$1.9 trillion in stimulus that funds the administrations pet projects and only paid a fraction to the people.

$29 trillion in debt with $4.8 trillion projected 2021 deficit before the $2 trillion stimulus proposed today for the new green deal.
6+% unemployment with millions of job openings that can’t be filled because federal unemployment assistance makes it more advantageous for people to stay home than work.

All in the first 100 days.

  2015 and the plans for a 3d World War using Bio weapons
Posted by: 727Sky - 05-09-2021, 12:43 PM - Forum: Asian Affairs - Replies (12)

Just about every country has invested in figuring out how to "bug" an enemy to death. It was said back in the dark days of the cold war, Russia had a missile loaded with several different stains of horrible different infection carrying bugs and viruses to include a bigger better Small Pox. The missile would do an air-burst over a geographical area for a given population.

So far due to treaties and common sense the genetically altered bugs have not been released for a dooms day scenario.

Believe this or not: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...s-say.html

Quote:China was preparing for a Third World War with biological weapons - including coronavirus - SIX years ago, according to dossier produced by the People's Liberation Army in 2015 and uncovered by the US State Department
  • Beijing has considered the military potential of SARS coronaviruses since 2015
  • The bombshell document was accessed by US State Department investigators
  • Scientists examined manipulation of diseases 'in a way never seen before'
  • Foreign affairs committee's Tom Tugendhat says evidence is a 'major concern'
Chinese scientists have been preparing for a Third World War fought with biological and genetic weapons including coronavirus for the last six years, according to a document obtained by US investigators.
The bombshell paper, accessed by the US State Department, insists they will be 'the core weapon for victory' in such a conflict, even outlining the perfect conditions to release a bioweapon, and documenting the impact it would have on 'the enemy's medical system'.
This latest evidence that Beijing considered the military potential of SARS coronaviruses from as early as 2015 has also raised fresh fears over the cause of Covid-19, with some officials still believing the virus could have escaped from a Chinese lab.
The dossier by People's Liberation Army scientists and health officials, details of which were reported in The Australian, examined the manipulation of diseases to make weapons 'in a way never seen before'.
Senior government figures say it 'raises major concerns' over the intentions of those close to Chinese President Xi Jinping amid growing fears about the country's lack of regulation over its activity in laboratories.
