I think deep down inside of us all, we're a little scared. Our world is Fucked. It sucks to know that and have children
If you're the least bit "aware" then we all kinda feel the same thing. How many "normal" years are left? I worry for my daughter.
Every generation for countless generations have thought there's would be the one to see "the end." Buck up, live your best life for you and yours, help where you can, and keep moving. Pondering your ultimate demise online won't make anything less scary.
There are two ways to look at the world: Think about traveling a winding road right up against a high craggy mountain on your left and a beautiful vista on your right. If you focus on the precarious gray, stony, rocky side, you miss out on the view just a turn of the head away.
So much of our happiness depends on how we look at the world. Good luck, buddy:)
Good Bones by Maggie Smith
Life is short, though I keep this from my children. Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways, a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative estimate, though I keep this from my children. For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird. For every loved child, a child broken, bagged, sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world is at least half terrible, and for every kind stranger, there is one who would break you, though I keep this from my children. I am trying to sell them the world. Any decent realtor, walking you through a real shithole, chirps on about good bones: This place could be beautiful, right? You could make this place beautiful.
In my daily goings on I notice young women with babies and small children born in just the last few years, and I think to myself that these little ones now will likely live the entire 21st century.
I look at their tiny bright faces and worry for the shitshow that they're being stuck with. I am not optimistic. :( I want to apologize for all of us for what we allowed to happen.
I expect by 2030 the USA will not be much like the 1st world superpower that it has been for our entire lives. No fucking way am I gonna bring kids into this world.
Something HUGE is entering our Atmosphere!
A strong signal has been going on for over ten minutes. Its not a meteor.
EDIT: Perhaps, it bears mentioning that as recently as a week and a half ago, astronomers were seriously discussing the possibility of an interstellar vehicle on the front page of Reddit.
EDIT 2: 4chan thread discussion
Oh for crying out loud.
At 55Mhz you sometimes get very long distance ionospheric propagation, i.e. signals skipping/reflecting off of the ionosphere. This type of propagation is called "Sporadic E". This type of propagation results in signals being received from stations up to several thousand kilometers away, reliably, over long periods of time. The signal OP is seeing and that everyone is getting worked up over is a result of Sporadic E propagation.
That same frequency band can also propagate by meteor scatter, i.e. signals reflecting off of the plasma trail left by meteors entering the atmosphere. Meteor scatter propagation only happens in very short bursts. Reception of those very short bursts allows us to detect meteors impacting our atmosphere.

Don't take my word for it, read the information on the damn website.
If you see and hear sometimes a strong continuous signal that runs for more than a minute or so, that is unlikely to be a meteor echo. VHF radio waves are sometimes affected by an unusual form of ionosphere propagation called "Sporadic E".
Excellent explanation.....Dr. Killjoy. Can't we just have an alien ship show up already? What's so difficult about it..we know they're out there..they know we know...we know they know we know.
For Christ's sake...let's get some excitement going..I'm bored.
Alien ship! Alien ship! All I want for Christmas is an alien ship...
I hope the aliens come from the planet Sporadic E just so we can all be right.
Time to do acid and find out!
From everything I’ve read, everyone who lives or lived in Fresno, all say the Fresno PD are as corrupt as they come.
Does anyone remember the Chinese guy (2-4 years ago) to whom a very similar thing occured? I think he lived in New York?
Edit: it had something to do with a judge disliking him...?
No, don’t be silly, he set his house on fire and stabbed himself to death in the middle of the inferno. Pretty sure he stabbed his guard dog to death too if I’m not mistaken. Yeah.
This is the single worst shit I've ever seen American cops do to a human.
ABC Makes "Epic Mistake", Retracts Bombshell Flynn Story: ABC News issued a 'clarification' to their bombshell Flynn report that not only negates the entire story but provides President Trump with another round of ammunition to fire against the 'fake news' media.
I'm sure the fact that Mueller now has two indictments and two plea deals from Trump's former campaign members is just one big nothingburger. Flynn and Papa cooperating with the investigation is sure to mean nothing.
Fake news doesn't correct their mistakes.
Well I guess this means the Mueller investigation isn't actually happening and Flynn didn't just make a plea deal! Amazing how ABC can make an entire investigation null because of inaccurate reporting that they corrected.
Okay, so ABC messed up. Did Flynn not take a plea deal and point to Trump's son being the one who told him to talk to the Russians?
It proves that the market will adjust based on the present likelihood that our President will be impeached. That would hold true with ANY person as President.
CORRECTION of ABC News Special Report: Flynn prepared to testify that President-elect Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians during the transition -- initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria, confidant now says. (link: http://abcn.ws/2ixWHDL) abcn.ws/2ixWHDL
People will keep on trusting ABC. It doesn't matter. Despite everyone knowing here who the media companies work for, as soon as they say something that aligns with that they think/want, they believe it without question.
And yeah, I'm talking about most of you motherfuckers in /sub/conspiracy.
This deliberate misinformation did more to harm the country (billions in lost market value) than anything Trump may have done during the campaign.
This is the media reminding you of their power. Nothingburgers can still cause panic.
Will there be any kind of response, or will the Jewish State be allowed to continue attacking its neighbors with impunity?
Fuck. I really don't want Iran to turn into another Syria. The government aside, it's a beautiful country inhabited by good people.
A war involving Israel would be dangerous. They have threatened to nuke the entire world if they ever lose a war. Look up Samson Option.
Because ISIS never attacks them? 🤔
Seems like a pretty big CONSPIRACY to me.
Then why lie about it?
This is Whataboutism at its finest.
I have one question to people pushing the new "it's not illegal during the transition".
Why do you think Flynn got a deal from Mueller if he doesn't have actual incriminating evidence or testimony of criminal conduct about a higher ranking cabinet member?
You aren't handed a deal if you don't have something of value.
And the people of interest left above Flynn are Kushner, Trump Jr., Pence and Trump himself.
Flynn has to have spilled the beans on one of them otherwise a deal wouldn't make sense.
Repost from yesterday or the day before. This article is referring to a subset of vaccines, not all vaccines. Additionally, it’s mostly referring to vaccines for non communicable diseases like Tetanus.
Quite interesting, though I think the headline is slightly misleading. The risk is clearly not "zero", since the article talks about specific vaccines and diseases, not vaccines in general.
EDIT: Misleading title. Author talks about specific vaccines, not vaccines in general.
In fact, vaccinated children (espacially those that had live virus vaccines done) pose more risk to unvaccinated children than vice versa.
If a sitting POTUS trying to pressure people to end an investigation into his people isn't a conspiracy, then nothing qualifies as one.
Innocent people don't act that way.
Comey wasn't lying.Sally Yates wasn't lying Dana Boente wasn't lying Preet Bahrara wasn't lying Dan Coates wasn't lying Mike Rodgers wasn't lying
It's almost as if there was a pattern of the White House firing attorneys and pressuring intel heads over the Russia(etc) investigation. Shit even Jeff Sessions was pressured to resign after Mueller was appointed.
Shortly after learning in May that a special counsel had been appointed to investigate links between his campaign associates and Russia, President Trump berated Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an Oval Office meeting and said he should resign
Comey wasn't lying.
hes just so obviously guilty its comical lol.
however, his cult will defend him at all costs because they're afraid to admit they made a mistake in voting for him and got conned by a painfully obvious conman.
i mean how can you not see right through the guy? he eve looks like slimy con man straight out of a kids movie lmao
Nobody *needs* google, amazon, facebook, youtube, etc.
These are voluntary conveniences, and the biggest effect we have on our world today and on 'the powers that be' is through our money and our data.
You can make a daily difference by choosing who you give it to. Together we could make a big one.
I agree. Im also trying to change my language from "Just google it" to "Search engine it"
Googles wayyyy too powerful
yet you're on reddit.
"Just duck it" is my new saying. Or "duck that"
I have not nor will I ever use Amazon. Fuck them on every level! I need to delete my FB. I rarely use YouTube. Time to switch search engines.
