SpaceX Falcon 9 Landing on Droneship in the Atlantic Ocean https://youtu.be/HZfv8fWc3w8

I am a fan of space science fiction and real space achievements. http://this1that1whatever.com/technology/Space.php

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket deployed the Dragon spacecraft to low Earth orbit to deliver critical cargo to the International Space Station (ISS) for NASA.  Dragon deployed about 10 minutes after liftoff and will attach to the ISS about two days after launch. The first stage of the Falcon 9 experimental landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship in the Atlantic Ocean was a success.

European Union ponders better way to deal with migrants. It won't solve the problem but send as many to Canada as possible. Idiots in Ottawa pretending to run the government efficiently by being less transparent with (i.e. hide) as many things as possible (contrary to election promises), for example, the first federal budget in this term.

Trump promoting his fragrance product a few years ago. Who bought his product based on his message "If you put this on, anything you want will come true."? In 2016, Trump is promoting "I will make America great again!" along with other things for his POTUS bid. Fascinating to watch the progression ...

+Andrew Moser your the one showing the ignorance DUMBASS if you knew ANYTHING about what your acting like you know you would know that Donald Trump has not attacked ANYBODY'S wife.. In fact the attacks on Melania TRUMP (which initially started the whole thing) started from a superpac with ties to LyinTedCruz ... Emails/phone # the same... If you want to give an opinion make sure you have the facts and quit playing follow the leader

Liberals ramp up deficit spending without a strategy to balance books. The press writing this is overthinking the problem. Future governments and generations will take care of the deficit, eventually ... or not! Everyone should follow the leadership of the Canadian Liberal government - finance everything you want or need and don't worry about the debt - the future will take care of that ... or not.

Gold is the pile of poker chips in the next global crisis.
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gold-is-the-pile-of-poker-chips-in-the-next-global-crisis-2016-04-05

Economists and other experts debate the role of gold in the fiat money system. Since money supply is no longer tied to gold reserves, some argue there is no sense to stockpile gold reserves. Canada has been downsizing its gold reserves over the years. According to the article above, Canada will not have a seat at the negotiating table due to Canada having insufficient gold reserves. Canada will have no say on the world stage when the fiat money system collapses.

The FBI said it successfully used a mysterious technique without Apple's help to hack into the iPhone used by a gunman in a mass shooting in California.

When are people going to face the reality of Apple's over-the-top marketing lies. Apple computers and iPhones are not immune to viruses, malware and hacking. The FBI case with the iPhone for the Bernardino investigation is just a highly publicized revelation - imagine all the cases of unknown hacking.

Blackberry CEO John Chen has tried to capitalize on this by suggesting Blackberry is the way to go if security is your utmost concern. But then again, who is buying the Blackberry story or device?

I'm not into video games even though I played and enjoyed Assassin's Creed Unity. I'm definitely not into all that noisy fighting with things blowing up. I signed up with Epic Games a while back to learn about game programming - for me, that is relatively easier than the creation of 3D assets. I got this promo trailer for a game soon to be released on the Epic Games platform.

My interest in UE4 is for the graphics and animation of 3D assets. I like the idea of creating videos (short films) to tell a story. My pace is along the lines of http://this1that1whatever.com/blog/2015/06/15-Tessa-and-Friends.php which I programmed in UE4.

After a 1-year break from Netflix, I re-joined. First content I reached for - House of Cards. Francis Underwood makes Donald Trump look like a kitten. Going with my old ways - binge viewing.

Scene from Season 4, Episode 11. If you have seen it, you will know what it's all about. If you have not seen it, I don't want to spoil it by explaining.

I expected something along the lines of that scene because I thought "Claire gets no intimacy". The show most likely was designed to lead me into that expectation!

After I finish with Season 4, I will write a blog page on it as I did for Season 3. http://this1that1whatever.com/blog/2015/03/01-house-of-cards.php
