Flat Earth Theory / Re: Investigating FE Jupiter
« on: June 07, 2019, 05:14:02 PM »

Walter Russell, one of Tesla's best friends, created a new periodic table of elements, taking into account the ELEMENTS FORMED BY THE E2, E3 AND E4 subquark configuration. That is, there are plenty of other elements before Hydrogen.

I thought you said someone else made a correct Periodic table. There is more than one correct Periodic table now?

Sandhokan, please stop the word salad.

Your source of LaViolette is an alien UFO conspiracy believer that writes about junk science. There is only conspiracy theorists that believe that the B-2 stealth bomber uses the effect.

Funny, there is a page on his website dedicated to "support" of his theories. If you read the letters (the ones that still exist on the website), none of them actually support his theories. They instead say, "ooh, interesting, I'll make note of that." Or "Have you tested your theory in conjunction with the data from this guy?"

Bunk.

Biefeld-Brown effect basically debunked:

"Brown believed that his large, high voltage, high capacity capacitors produced an electric field strong enough to marginally interacted with the Earth's gravitational pull, a phenomenon he labeled electrogravitics. Several researchers claim that conventional physics cannot adequately explain the phenomenon.[16] The effect has become something of a cause célèbre in the UFO community, where it is seen as an example of something much more exotic than electrokinetics. Charles Berlitz devoted an entire chapter of his book The Philadelphia Experiment to a retelling of Brown's early work with the effect, implying he had discovered a new electrogravity effect and that it was being used by UFOs. Today, the Internet is filled with sites devoted to this interpretation of the effect.

There have been follow-ups on the claims that this force can be produced in a full vacuum, meaning it is an unknown anti-gravity force, and not just the more well known ion wind. As part of a study in 1990, U.S. Air Force researcher R. L. Talley conducted a test on a Biefeld–Brown-style capacitor to replicate the effect in a vacuum.[8] Despite attempts that increased the driving DC voltage to about 19 kV in vacuum chambers up to 10−6 torr, Talley observed no thrust in terms of static DC potential applied to the electrodes.[17] In 2003, NASA scientist Jonathan Campbell tested a lifter in a vacuum at 10−7 torr with a voltage of up to 50 kV, only to observe no movement from the lifter. Campbell pointed out to a Wired magazine reporter that creating a true vacuum similar to space for the test requires tens of thousands of dollars in equipment.[8]

Around the same time in 2003, researchers from the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) tested the Biefeld–Brown effect by building four different-sized asymmetric capacitors based on simple designs found on the Internet and then applying a high voltage of around 30 kV to them. According to their report, the researchers claimed that the effects of ion wind was at least three orders of magnitude too small to account for the observed force on the asymmetric capacitor in the air. Instead, they proposed that the Biefeld–Brown effect may be better explained using ion drift instead of ion wind due to how the former involves collisions instead of ballistic trajectories.[1] Around ten years later, researchers from the Technical University of Liberec conducted experiments on the Biefeld–Brown effect that supported ARL's claim that assigned ion drift as the most likely source of the generated force.[18]

In 2004, Martin Tajmar published a paper that also failed to replicate Brown's work and suggested that Brown may have instead observed the effects of a corona wind triggered by insufficient outgassing of the electrode assembly in the vacuum chamber and therefore misinterpreted the corona wind effects as a possible connection between gravitation and electromagnetism.[2]"

I heard a mayor or something was attempting to block it? Or was this another privately funded section?

"It initially escapes from the nucleus of its parent atom, invariably one of the heaviest elements, by quantum mechanical processes and is repelled further from it by electromagnetism, as both the alpha particle and the nucleus are positively charged."

I can find plenty of resources that point to my claim.

I can find no reference source cited for the claim made in your evidence - so therefore it is just a claim.

I think your objections to my claim come from a philosophical rather than a scientific one:

Incorrect. Physicists acknowledge the theory of quantum mechanics as the underlying principle and quantum vacuum fluctuations as the cause for radioactive decay.

The grind does suck the life out of my soul. Ha. I just get sick enjoyment of destroying other people's squads.

Never heard of Future Fight. Might have to check it out.

This same depiction of reflected sunlight has been discussed before. No one (not even Totallackey) provided real evidence of the sun casting a shadow from a reflection off of a surface on to the bottom surface of a cloud.  All he has done is provide a false equivalency. To cast a reflected shadow you would need a specular reflection - such as a mirror or water. Most surfaces provide only diffuse reflection - grass, trees, most things in nature. He once even suggested that there is possibly a body of water that cast that shadow without providing one shred of evidence.
Rainier is surrounded by numerous bodies of water and is located in the middle of the snowiest place in the contiguous 48.

False equivalency your tuckus...

Plenty of highly reflective surfaces that could easily generate specular reflection.

Yet, you provide no evidence of this phenomenon directly happening. Only pure conjecture and hypothesizing that it can happen.

2019 Freedom Gas is 2003's Freedom Fries. Nothing original - just like Hollywood. Fuck fake.

Ooh, damn good theory there. I actually like that idea. Come on fanfic.

Then there is this conspiracy theory.

https://theweek.com/articles/842449/bran-truther

That Bran pulled all the strings in the first place.

All I can say at this point is that this show was great - until the end. I thought the first few episodes of season 8 were pretty good. But the last two - especially the finale - were absolute dialogue and acting shitholes.

Then why the last line of his in the finale? "I will find the dragon..." or somesuch nonsense.

That would be weird, especially if Bran had warged into Drogon at that exact moment. I mean, unless that's his thing.

I have read excerpts of Sheep. I took a bunch of Lit classes in college. Reading is one of my favorite things to do. I tend to favor Fantasy fiction over Sci-Fi - my dad read us the Hobbit and the Sword of Shannara when I was 6 or so. I was hooked after that.

My favorite series of all time is the Wheel of Time - and I am anticipating great things for the Amazon screen adaptation.

Okay. Tell us why the Northern centered map has the eclipses in perfect arcs, as opposed to the globe map or any projection layout.


Sorry, missed the quote reference. My comment was in response to Tom.

As I was looking around for an interesting fact to post on my board at work, I found this guy.

He ate an entire Cessna airplane over the course of 2 years. WTF

Because its a different projection? If I made it a different shape of a map, I would get a different plot of the path.
