Tom, I'm convinced it did occur. I'm not accusing you of makin it up.  I'm not arguing that point.  However, it was astonishingly obviously SARCASM!!!!.  It seems you don't know what that means.  Go look it up.  There are 327 Million explanations on the internet.  Many of those must be from Fake Earthers.

Research like Fake Earther's do.

Enjoy.

Remarks like "That might be a joke" is a fairly low content response. Was I supposed to respond that it might not be, where you again respond that it might be?

I will hold out until you have something legitimate to argue.
Tom, your inability to recognize sarcasm is not my responsibility.  I can't help you with that in any reasonable way here.  The link you posted was as sarcastic as sarcasm can get.  Sorry you don't get it. Don't pout, try again.

If you guys have nothing to post except a low content post, I would suggest not posting.
I disagree. The 2nd part of my last post was pertinent to the discussion.  The link you posted contained content that was an obvious exaggerated reaction to the change in law.  Do I really have to explain this to you?

Alternatively:

Holy confirmation bias Batman!  No surprise really.  Tom you have an unique way for dragging up the most incredible trash to support your mental state.  This was far more than likely posted in jest.  The fact you don't see that is kind of sad.  Keep them blinders on Tommy boy.

Fixed the title for U guyzzzz.

I do understand this is, at first sight, a low value post.  But upon further reflection I am sure you all know this is where things are heading in many places in the US.  It can't be anything but obvious that things will return to the way they were.  Even died in the wool fanatics of misogyny and religious mansplainin' (Tom and Achtung80. talking to you guys here) will have to admit that if it is not available legally it will promote a criminal source just like it did in the past.

I guess some intense assholes believe that women should die horribly from infection due to badly implemented illegal procedures rather than live their life after having a humanely justifiable professional abortion.

It's not Like Tom Turkey or Achtung80 will ever need personally to face this.  So what's it to them?

How do these practically zombified 70-80 year olds conduct political business?

Sorry for being late to this game.

Age has nothing to do with it, unless you are old enough to be dead.  There is precious little difference between politicians and whores.  Politicians sell themselves for favors, whores sell them selves for money.  The whores come out ahead.  Political favors have the life span of a mayfly.  Money rules.  So politicians play their little games endlessly thinking they are doin' stuff.  They aren't.  It usually amounts to rhetoric and media ops.  Anyone from 8 to 88 can deal with it.  The real power is not in the public arena.  Let the conspiracies flow...

As a litmus test - how surprised were you by Trump's 2016 election?
LOL!

Indeed.

If they don't like Newtonian mechanics what would they think of GR and QM?  In GR only abut 20 solutions are know to exist, yet the many approximations we have are so good they explain many of the things we see in the cosmos.  It reveals a lot about how the universe is made up and we can deduce myriad things from that.  QM does not give exact answers either.  All it provides is the probability that something is going to be in any given state at any given time.  Yet that has allowed us to build nearly all the technology we have today.  If Tom (and the Fake Earth community in general) can't get their head around F=Gm1m2/r2 and F=ma and are not satisfied with us being able to calculate orbits to 30 decimal places of accuracy to the point of claiming our universe can't exit. how then can he believe in his computer and the internet which come to us courtesy of probabilities, "guesswork" and insights with no analytic answers at all.  Yet here he is, using those things he can't possibly understand or believe in every day to disseminate his misinformation from his closet.

... refusing to understand that it can be and has been modelled as multiple 2 body problems very successfully.
You are making the very same error that Tom is.  When N-body problems are simulated they DO NOT use multiple 2-body problems.  That method is only used to approximate an analytical solution.  For simulation you do not need a an analytic solution to the differential equations.  The equations for each object are simultaneously integrated numerically in a piecewise or discrete fashion and allowed to evolve.  This is NOT multiple 2-body problems.

I pointed out that planets and asteroids would not use gravitationally selective two body problems or mathematical cheats when traversing the solar system. You don't have a working model that can exist without these cheats.
This is not how planetary systems are modeled Tom.  Where are you getting this bullshit?  (rhetorical - no need to answer)

For everyone else:

Assuming a simple system (no relativistic effects) for a particular slice (or point) in time all forces on all bodies are calculated using UG, then using a=F/m the change in velocities of all objects are calculated from which their positions at the next time slice are all computed.  By definition of it being a single point in time, all calculations for each time slice are .. simultaneous.  There are no "gravitationally selective two body problems" or whatever the fuck that is supposed to mean.  The time is then incremented and the process is repeated.  Just a few simple Newtonian formulas are required - no differential equations and no analytic integrations to solve and no "cheats".  The whole process of the simulation is a piecewise numerical integration.

Where relativistic effects come into play, you need to use the appropriate corrections, but even without them you can model our solar system to arbitrary accuracy by making the time slices smaller.  Of course the perihelion of Mercury will be out by .0012 degrees after a decade of time slices, but everything else will be just fine.  If you want that 0.0012 degrees in Mercury's orbit corrected you'll have to account for the relativistic effects but other than that the simulation is done the same way..

But many of these distances are measured without a good frame of reference. 
\\You must be talking about your Fake Earth.  On the Real Earth we use a system of latitudes and longitudes as a frame of reference.  It works wonderfully at allowing us to determine distances from one place to the next.  Maybe you should educate yourself on that before moving on to a world where nothing works.

And you will again -
Not on this subject.  Tom is content with his ignorance in this regard and I feel no compulsion to elevate him out of it.

He maintains this ignorance intentionally in order to support his Fake Earth nonsense.  How do you deal with someone that does that?  It's not possible.

You begin by making a calculated guess based on a mathematical model, then compare that to experiment.  If the result of the experiment does not support your calculations, they get thrown out and you begin again.  That is how the process (simplified) of science works.  That process is not what I see here.  You might actually enjoy that video.

This disproves much of your astronomical theories. The physics of galaxies and the three body problem do not work -

https://wiki.tfes.org/Problems_of_the_Galaxies#Galactic_Epicycles

https://wiki.tfes.org/Three_Body_Problem
We've been through this before Tom.

The three (or more) body problem is one of finding an analytic solution to a system of differential equations.  It has nothing to do with the physics.  You have always been unable to differentiate between using numerical methods to find an analytic solution and running a numerical simulation.  Numerical simulations prove the physics and can be used to predict reality to arbitrary precision.

As I said we have been trough this before.   Others have had this dance with you too.  Your unwillingness to educate yourself leaves you ignorant, stupid and constantly getting this wrong.  I don't want or need to go here with you again.

Assuming this is true, then our island dwarf galaxy Earth would look similar to other galaxies.
However, our local structure in the galaxy is nothing like a dwarf galaxy and the planets and sun do not orbit the earth.  We are actually near the margin of one of the spiral arms where the stars are much less densely populated.  Further, we are nothing like a black hole.  If you squeezed the earth down to a black hole it would be smaller than a golf ball.  Not much landmass there.  Then lets add the the gravity associated with a black hole would not permit anything like the kind of life we see about us.

I see no compelling reasons to draw the same conclusions as yourself.  What your proposing is a wild guess with nothing to substantiate it.  Not a scientific theory.

I'm not sure you watched that video I posted to another thread, but Feynman clearly delineated that science is a process.  You begin by making a calculated guess based on a mathematical model, then compare that to experiment.  If the result of the experiment does not support your calculations, they get thrown out and you begin again.  That is how the process (simplified) of science works.  That process is not what I see here.  You might actually enjoy that video.

Just curious, but what makes you think this?  Have you made some sort of compelling observation based on the solution to a physical model, or is it just made up?

Assume a proper trim to start with, then a light coat of Lawry's seasoned salt. 2:1 ratio of 16-mesh black pepper and kosher salt applied pretty heavy. Obviously, cured post oak wood for the smoke and ideally a decent offset smoker. Wagyu beef tallow is the new central TX cheat, so throw a good amount of that in a tin and smoke it along with the brisket. Clean fire ~225F for the first several hours to get ideal smoke penetration, can also throw some of the trimmed fat onto the fire at this point. Bump it to 250F-275F to blast past the stall. Pour the rendered tallow on the brisket and butcher paper and then wrap. At that point, doesn't matter if you finish on the smoker or in the oven. Once the meat is over 200F and you have that brisket jiggle, open up the paper and let it come down to 170F or so. Then re-wrap either in the old paper or new paper with more tallow. Then let it rest in the oven ~160F for at least 12 hours and you will have created the pinnacle of TX brisket.
Seems about right.  A few points from my end..

1) Haven't tried the Lawry's yet, but you are teh 3rd to tell me about it.  Must try.  I agree on the salt and pepper.
2) I make my own tallow from the brisket trimmings.  The dog gets the crispins from that process as treats.   Where I am Wagyu tallow is a pipe dream.
3) Here's the main modification - I use a pellet smoker.  I'll start it out at 195 for about 6 hours to get the right amount of smoke flavor, then the rest of it's about the same.
4) I do my rest in a cooler

Everyone agrees that Polaris is 93M miles away in the direction of the earth's axis off the north pole.
Perhaps you meant 323LY?

Billo, this forum is a good place to start.
Science?  Here?  Clearly there is something missing in your understanding of what science is.
