“And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting. Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.”
As a connoisseur of strange ideas I have naturally found myself here. I was looking at the flat earth wiki and can't help but want to have this explained to me.
On the page for the Bedford Level Experiment (http://wiki.tfes.org/Bedford_Level_Experiment ) , it says:
"The Bedford Level Experiment remains one of the most widely-accepted examples of Flat Earth proof."
Then says "...a set of three poles fixed at equal height above water level along this length. As the surface of the water was assumed to be level, the discovery that the middle pole, when viewed carefully through a theodolite, was almost three feet higher than the poles at each end was finally accepted as a new proof that the surface of the earth was indeed curved."
So the experiment showed that the Earth is actually curved? Am I missing something here?
I want Iran to have nukes. Historically, a country that acquired nukes always became more stable and the region became more peaceful. Very recent examples include Israel, which threatened to nuke the entire region and subsequently survived an Egyptian beat-down, and then we have Ukraine, who gave up their nukes only to be invaded by Russia.
Nuclear weapons have only stopped wars, they have never started them.
Are you saying that North Korea has become more stable since it developed nuclear technology? I thought we were just ignoring them as the outlier in the situation. Anyway, they haven't developed the missile technology to use them yet so they don't really count at all.
I'm not saying it is more stable, but it hasn't really degraded much. (not that I imagine it could)I'm not sure how not-stupid [Iran is]. They knowingly stepped into a situation where the UN would impose extremely harsh restrictions on them. That doesn't sound like something an intelligent, self-aware country would do.
Now you're implying that Russia is not an intelligent, self-aware country. I'm really confused about how you imagine foreign countries.
By all accounts she wasn't good at her job, didn't get along with people, didn't take the good advice she was given. She filed the lawsuit the same month her husband declared bankruptcy, and he's subsequently been accused of fraud.
