  1. >Greenspan: Iraq war was really for oil Former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, in a memoir to be released Monday, says the prime motive for the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was oil, The Sunday Times reported.< http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-09/16/content_6736088.htm it's good to be right once in a while. >A Eulogy for 911< http://www.timetravelinstitute.com/ttiforum/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=time_travel&Number=48471&page=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=14&vc=1 This is my absolute favorite website. I visit this site 2-4 times a day, every single day. I love this site as much as I love Google news or YouTube. But Making RainmanTime a moderator is like using the wolves to guard the sheep. It will not be easy for me to leave this website but this is my last post. I have often wondered how much money this website makes from its banner ads. I always hope it is enough to keep this website running. That is why I am not offended when a Monster.com pop-up pops up or really dumb ad banners run on the top- because I know they are keeping this site alive. But putting RainmanTime in charge of ANYTHING here is like putting Brownie back in charge of FEMA. I respect and admire the owner of this site for simply keeping it up. And I respect his decision. And I thank him for having this website in the first place. Thank you. Adieu
  2. Re: THE AMERO MONEY >is not only the coin but the gold price of the coin ...< There is a direct inverse ratio between the price of gold and the stock market. Take any gold chart, flip it and reverse it and put it up against a stock market chart. It's been that way since 1933. The same also applies to the US deficit. >did you read the red letters...< You mean this: >Due to the increasing market value of gold, the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins are temporarily unavailable while pricing for this option can be adjusted; therefore, no orders can be taken at this time. We expect products to be available with adjusted pricing on or after September 27, 2007.< Yeah- gold is volatile, like the stock market. >This story explains why you own gold: not so much to make money but to protect it.< I own gold because I am a coin guy, I have always been a coin guy. To me, it simply makes sense to own gold. You want a conspiracy? Look up US gold bolds. Gold is still readily available- eBay, coin shows, etc... but now is not the time to buy gold- I'd go with stocks until things settle down a bit. "But stocks are volatile". Exactly- get it now while everyone's panties are in a knot. Another thing I recommend right now is real estate simply because it's all volatile and the idiots have already left that market. >"Here's a WILD hyper-inflation scenario -- far worse, and happening far faster, than I can imagine. But it is useful for personal mind-stretching and scenario-izing. It is also darn funny." I do not believe there will be a recession or depression. If such a thing happens, that's the end of the dollar and bread and cars and street lights and civil order... the last thing on everyone's minds at that point is gold. Are you going on record predicting a recession/depression/hyperinflation/whatever?
  3. Re: THE AMERO MONEY I have been collecting those coins since the mid 90's. What is your point?
  4. Re: answer to hdrkid Is it safe to say DarwinMurphy fugazi snarfed back to the future at this point?
  5. I much prefer it when they come clean.
  6. Re: Dubai - What's up with that? :) Titorian turned me on to Dubai. From all I have seen, they are the good guys over there. Why? Because they took our US dollars and are upgrading to a 22nd century country. They love our US dollars... THEY GET IT. By doing all that they are doing, they are ensuring their currency well into the future, unlike all other middle-eastern countries. And since they have roads and highways and fire hydrants, the people of Dubai are happy, and happy people are less likely to strap on explosives.
  7. (Might as well beat a dead horse) >I cannot divulge exactly where it will take place due to the distortion it may cause, but a tsunami wave will envelope highly populated areas in the south-pacific.< Excuse me- but aren't EVENTS defined by REACTIONS? You can TOTALLY go away now... in fact:
  8. >i saw something on tv yesterday that gave me an idea. what if you drilled a hole deep enough into the ground to get a fair amount of heat, like a narrow circular hole, and then put a fan and generator over the hole. anyone have any idea how much energy that would produce?< In theory it would work- with some sort of magic "heat compressor", which currently is a contradiction. The ground temperature on the Earth varies between -60 degrees and 140 degrees, but when you get 10+ feet below ground, the temp is a constant 60... that ten feet of earth above you is enough of an insulator to insulate a 200 degree swing. So yeah- if you dug a hole 10+ feet into the ground, you'd tap into a volume of a constant 60 degree temperature, but how do you turn it into energy? How do you bring it up to ground level in the winter? And that's where a magic heat compressor comes into play- a windmill. A giant, closed pipe- half is above ground, half is 10 feet below ground. Connected to a windmill that generates X2 energy (thereby keeping the air in this closed system flowing at "X2 speed") and you have a house that is 60 degrees inside, 365 days a year. At that point, all you need is a way to go from 60 to 72 degrees (a +12 degree shift) and that's where a passive heating system comes into play: Another closed system made of black tubes on the roof and a water heater/coolant tank in the basement. The black tubes absorb sunlight "all day long" and heat up the tubes, which heats up this closed system, which heats up the (probably pressurized) water in the coolant tank. When the sun sets, the hot water in the coolant tank evaporates and radiates up the pipes as heat, to escape through the roof (or be reabsorbed via another process). In other words, a closed system house- a house that's 72 degrees all by itself 365 days a year. All of this is possible and very practical- only someone has to invent it. PS- the energy source of this is a windmill, which is reliant on the Earth's orbit. In other words, "as long as the Earth spins, this system will work".
  9. Darby- What do you make of this: http://www.expanding-earth.org/ It makes an awful lot of sense to me- it's very anthropic. It's also very profound.
  10. >I have been sent from the year 2011. >We have had the ability to travel time for about seven years So this time machine you went through was invented three years ago in 2004?
  11. Actually, I rarely edit what I type before I type it- I am hyperlexic and pedantic.
  12. Re: answer to hdrkid Took me a little while to find it. It's worth posting to put this issue to rest. The original article: http://www.freemarketnews.com/WorldNews.asp?nid=47425 "These private-issue fantasy pattern coins will be struck as an annual series, starting in the latter part of 2007."
  13. Re: answer to hdrkid Recall- I came across the Amero coin weeks ago on a financial website. They are made by this guy who makes coins for a living. He designed a few US State Quarters etc. etc. He made the Amero for artistic reasons or whatever reasons he made it- not as currency. Personally, I think the Amero is a good idea- it will counterbalance the Euro. I know it's not a popular opinion but it is practical, and it will raise the economies of our neighbors to the north and south.
  14. >i think its possible for both ideas to exist, i think you can have a black hole connecting two dimensions and the space-time between them can act as a drain that pulls every thing from one dimension to the other. universe recycling system that you talk about can be just time,space-time, spinning into existence and pulling from other matter and energy that can not be created just destroyed.< The problem with this is two-fold. First, we have Hawking Radiation, which means black holes leak, which means "we know where the stuff that falls into a black hole eventually goes". And secondly, if white holes exist, they'd be hard to miss- there would be countless billions of them throughout the universe, and we have not seen one yet.

    bin Laden

    You Tube and it's the same thing... there is no single resource for Osama bin Laden information. I just finished reading his initial fatwa in 1996. http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/profiles/osama_bin_laden_declares_jihad_text.htm It was very lengthly and largely contradictory. In rough words, it was the words of a boy who grew up in the house of a billionaire who wanted to grow up and become "the overlooked star", so he grew up literally believing the Quran... and thinks this is the end of the world because he says so; because by definition, if you look at it in a weird kinda way, it makes sense. But it doesn't. He is calling for a showdown between Muslims and Catholics. But he is overlooking many CRUCIAL things... like CIVILIZATION. He is declaring war for religous reasons and overlooking a few obvious facts: -He has no policital power, apart from his acts of random terrorism, which are nothing more than random acts of terrorism. (For example, in later transcripts he promises to stop his terrorism if they (in terms) sign a treaty with him. But he has no political power, which makes it contradictory.) -He is calling all Muslim bretheren to arms to fight us American infidels, regardless of the fact that if it wasn't for us American infidels, there would be no land worth fighting over in the first place (oil)... it would be the same worthless desert it is today but without oil fields. -He is totally overlooking the incompitence and inherent nepotism and blaming it all on us American infidels. (Look at Dubai- sure their oil fields are being raped on a daily basis by us American inifdels but they are turning this into a modern society... THEY GET IT. In 2020, Dubai will be the next Japan.) -He is wrapping all of this up in a tidy little package and calling it "getting the infidels off our holy land", then topping it off with a countless list of one-liners from the Quran that justify war against us infidels- in the hopes of inciting a generation of disenfranchised ignorant youths to kill themselves for the right reasons: his. -He clearly edits his work before posting, but has no insight. If we're fighting over commerce (oil) then call it that. Don't disguise it as jihad, then call all Muslims all over the world to join his cause, as if they will all get your wink-wink nod-nod analogy then kill themselves- because you wrote this fatwa (idiots). -He thinks that because he is intelligent and can write a well-written "declaration", that it gives him the moral righteousness to then kill innocent people- because he said so. -But to hedge his bet, his declaration is full of easy-to-understand analogies for common Muslim-folk to compare us Americans to- snakes, bears and demons with a horde a Muslim "Davids" to the call(the mujhadeen). Yeah- he's got it all right- it is a well-written, well-editied declaration of war against us American infidels. But he is overlooking one glaringly large thing: CIVILIZATION. Where would we all be were it not for civilization? Still in caves, huddling together in fear of "the great night demon in the sky which sends the sun away every night to do battle in the hopes that the sun will arise tomorrow anew, victorious... and it's a whole new day". If Thomas Edison developed solar power a hundred years ago instead of AC, then the middle east today would be the same sand it is today, except without computers and roads and coffee shops and running water- they'd be a SIXTH world nation, desperate to sell their overflowing oil for 12 cents a gallon- let's be real for a moment here, Osama. And if Adolf Hitler won World War Two in 1945, how long until he realized "Arabs are not Aryan and therefore should also be exterminated"? How long until Hitler kills ALL Arabs and turns the middle east into one giant oil field? This is the story of a poor little boy who grew up in the house of a successful billionaire who had everything handed to him who never really "got out there with the rest of us" who had the luxory of time to reflect, who decided to make a name of himself by doing something terrible. Osama is David Koresh times a million. I do find it interesting that we wrote: >The money you pay to buy American goods will be transformed into bullets and used against our brothers in Palestine and tomorrow (in the future) against our sons in the land of the two Holy Places. By buying these goods, we are strengthening their economy, while our dispossession and poverty increases.< because his forcing us to go over there (by 911) had to other due recourse than to bullets instead of money- you know- money- like the BILLIONS OF DOLLARS us American infidels send to the middle east in the form of rice and clean water technology to feed the hungry masses that live right under the oil fields you co-exploit with us- because you lack infrastructure (and somehow blame us for it- see: Dubai). Hey Osama- look to your own house, leave us alone. YOU MAKE NO SENSE.
  16. Hey Darby- I also noticed all time travellers tend to talk in a formal way of speaking. I believe this is because they are writing their response in advance and editing it before posting- to make sure it makes sense before they post it. As such, their text ends up overly-formalized- partly because of editing and partly to make sure they sound superior-sounding (as a time traveller should, naturally). And of course you always have to throw in a zinger or two, as JOHNCOLE just did- to pique everyone's interest.

    bin Laden

    I am truly amazed at how much America has demonized Osama bin Laden. Now I am no supporter of bin Laden- as sorry as it is to say, some people in the world gotta go and Osama is one of them. You do a Google search on ANYTHING, and a million billion responses come up. You search "Osama bin Laden archive" or "speeches" or "transcripts" and you get nothing. NOTHING. NOTHING!!! Let me say that again- there is something you can type into Google and get no solid hits from. (Let that sink in for a while.) Wikipedia is the same thing- there simply are no links to sites that have archives of bin Laden speeches. So why the hell am I posting this? Because yeah- the guy's gotta go- it's as simple as that. And we have the strongest military force the world has ever known tracking him down to kill him as we speak, meaning, we're already taking every possible step we can to kill this guy- and rightfully so- what he did is wrong on every level- starting with his rules of engagement right through to where he expects countries to sign pacts with a group of terrorists. I mean- sure the guy is evil... and wrong. But does this also extend to censure? And if so, who is censoring it? Why the hell is there no archive of his evil words? I bet you within 90 seconds I could find a website that has an archive of every speech Hitler ever gave. Are you telling me bin Laden is worse than Hitler? Or is it the opposite- are bin Laden's words so evil that we simply cannot hear them- is that it? That if we hear them, we will become corrupted by them- and "become one of them"?? If the guy is wrong- which he clearly is- I want to read his wrong words. Does this somehow make me "one of them"?
  18. JohnCole- There's already 3-6 "time travellers" lurking on this website, we don't need any more.
  19. >THERE IS ONLY 1 GOD - REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE CALL HIM; ALLAH, JEHOVA, CHRIST. THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF THE SAME PERSON.< This is not a correct statement. Allah has no son; there is no God but God. Catholics believe in God the Father and God the Son plus the Holy Spirit, which is considered polytheism by Muslims.
  20. Re: answer to hdrkid Darby- I think we need for formalize "Darby's Law"- the two week window for time travellers- can you please define it for us? And second- there are too many damn fake time travellers here.
  21. >Thus if, for example, you originally measured the surface gravity at one of the poles of rotation and measured the surface gravity at the same place after compression it would be less than what you would expect from the simple inverse square proportion because mass would have propogated out along the rotational equator (the bulge at the equator caused by centrifigual forces).< One counter-argument or observation I had re: surface gravity is the correlation between that and the dual wave properties of light. Case in point- you can compress a balloon quite a bit before it pops, but if you used far less energy in the form of a pinhead would also cause it to pop. Why does it take so much more energy to "squeeze pop" a balloon? Because you are displacing your energy as you apply it. So the question becomes- how much energy does it really take to pop a balloon? I see a connection there. Another comment, although I still cannot properly form the question: >if your sphere of constant mass started with a radius of 1000 km and was compressed to a black hole and you are floating in space at a distance of 1000 km (where the original surface was located) the strength of the gravitational field is precisely the same at that point as it was before the sphere collapsed.< Every part of me disagrees with this statement, yet I see it has to be true. The 24,000 mile round Earth was once a ball of hydrogen gas as large as the solar system- so shouldn't the influence of the Earth's gravity affect the solar system? Is the answer "We do emit a gravity field the strength of a cloud of hydrogen, which is less than a degree above Cosmic Background Radiation, but the sun's gravity overpowers whatever gravity we may emit"?
  22. >I looked at the Wiki and at the bottom of the page and it discusses non-spheical objects. I guess that I should revise and extend my remarks.< Actually, I saw that too and glossed right over it, using the Hodge Conjecture as the solution- all objects are either spheres of globs of spheres.
