OK, here's what I think.  Fermi's Question ("If they exist on other planets, where are they?!") is answered by (1) every civilization invents a time travel device and (2) promptly destroys itself by fruitlessly trying to go back and fix things; thus (3) "Dark Matter" is billions of instances of time travelers who always fail to change anything and never stop trying.

Q.E.D. 
 
The big bang is the standard model , It seems that just maybe the believers in that model have become the new Catholic Church? I am not saying that is so but after viewing this and some other videos on Plasma cosmology I have my doubts. Another thought provoking video to make you say hmm. I have always had a problem with the dark Matter/energy fudge factor.I like the saying in here " everytime they point a new telescope in the sky, they only find what they already know is up there" Thank goodness they no longer burn people at the stake

Creatures of the sea

I started to create some proper albums here on G+ :)

How many images do you think an album should have, 10-20 ?
Whats your opinion ?

And as always hope you enjoy and feel free to share :)

That's true as far as I know... they have no other protection, though.

I've not had the unfortunate experience of being discriminated against because of the beard.  If anything, I get special treatment from some folks.  Perhaps it has something to do with being 6'9", too.

Hang your collar up inside
Hang your dollar on me
Listen to the water still
Listen to the causeway
You are mad and educated
Primitive and wild
Welcome to the occupation

Here we stand and here we fight
All your fallen heroes
Held and dyed and skinned alive
Listen to the Congress fire
Offering the educated
Primitive and loyal
Welcome to the occupation

Hang your collar up inside
Hang your freedom higher
Listen to the buyer still
Listen to the Congress
Where we propagate confusion
Primitive and wild
Fire on the hemisphere below

Sugar cane and coffee cup
Copper, steel and cattle
An annotated history
The forest for the fire
Where we open up the floodgates
Freedom reigns supreme
Fire on the hemisphere below
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me

The lac operon in the bacterium E. coli switches the organisms’ metabolism from glucose-burning to galactose-burning depending on which sugar has the highest concentration, locally. The code for this exchange in your favorite computer language is left as an exercise; we stipulate that the analogy is exact.

There is a very vigorous argument with regard to the Electoral College; there has always been a plurality that calls for it's abolition and replacement with something similar to parliamentary politics (I'm not an expert on this, please note). The assertion is that the College decouples the electorate from the mechanics of democratic process -- there is actually a formal description of this in democratic theory; it also has the effect of deterring voting participation.

I am, however, a patriot (and please read that as an assertion, not an jingoistic boast); I believe in the strength of the three-branches model and the distinction of the bicameral congress. I believe that the process of governance of the US is perfectible, if we are patient and diligent.

Introduction
Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

This was a secret, the simplest: to see rightly, one needs the correct instrument.  The essential is invisible to the eyes.
