Re: Elon Musk

Not sure what your on about with the big bang theory, I do believe in evolution but maybe just maybe we Humans have evolved much faster than other species because of some Alien input, the great apes for example don't seem to have evolved as fast as mankind is evolving, mankind seems to have made a g...

Re: Elon Musk

Of course there is the theory that the Human race is half alien to start with and the alien input is what kick started us into what we are today, not yet the finished article but all going well after we finally get through our savage state who knows what will be possible.

Re: 17 Dead and 11 more wounded

I think the Sates is a lost cause as far as gun controls are concerned even if laws were passed today it would take generations to get a grip on the situation with the number of guns floating around in the population.

Re: Armed Robbery

I think £25,000 was mentioned but it was in a safty box I think and i'm sure if they are forced open the money is covered in a dye that makes it useless. It is against the law to carry a knife in the UK as far as I know, I remember when I was a Pilot apprentice in the 1960s I carried a sheath knife ...

Re: Want to go to Mars?

The Universe has always fascinated me, its mind blowing, can our brains even imagine infinity, its been calculated there are more stars out there than there are grains of sand in the World and many of our closest Stars have planets, so the number of planets must be huge (huge doesnt really cover it)...

Re: How old is old?

I'll be 70 in July and I find it hard to believe, I often see people apparently younger than me and refer to them as old, until my wife points out they are maybe 10 years younger than me, in my mind I'm still about 40 :-)

Wind ups

We got a phone call from our travel company the other day advising us that they are building a new hotel close to the one we go to in Tenerife, they said there was some noise from the building work. We already knew because we keep in touch with the hotels web site. Anyway they offered us a choice of...

I have expressed my opinion on religion often on here, but I have always respected those who have religious faith whatever branch of religion they follow, Ralph is right when he says people have always explained the unexplained by referring them as an act of god or gods but my hope is, that as educa...

Re: Kindness and Understanding

I suspect a lot of what Niagraa writes is under the influence of drink or d*ugs, but to make a post inciting violence against anyone let alone a leading politician is a step too far in my opinion, there are a lot of nutters out there and not all are keyboard warriors like Niagraa some might be embol...

I was chatting to a guy recently and Sandancers site came up and he said he was surprised I was a member of a racist site, reading your drivel over and over I can see why people logging in to Sandancers would think its turned into a site for race hate. These days I dont comment as much as I used to ...
