Comment Re:The dark matter between their ears (Score 1) 164

Question: From TFA:

"Dark matter may make up 27% of the Universe's energy density, compared to just 5% of normal (atomic) matter, but in our Solar System, it's notoriously sparse. In particular, there's just a nanogram's worth per cubic kilometer."

So then, if it's 27% vs 5%, normal matter occupies roughly only about 0.185 of a nanogram per cubic kilometer? That seems on the low side.

Most trolls post anonymously, but I admire your style.
However, I believe they call this, "psychological transference".. I quote:

An insult to the ancient culture? Why's that? Are you uncomfortable talking about sex or does it bother you?

You projected an imagined issue onto me, that of "being uncomfortable with sex". You completely misread the meaning of my post when there was no cause to.
You provided not a shred of any kind of evidence whatsoever. That you even claim to is ludicrous. You're just looking for an argument, i.e. trolling.
Now bugger off, there will be further communication, you're not worth my time.

The reason why they are even around is because we are involved.

Strangely enough, when you kill someone family members, they hate you every single time. I guess you should stamp out that hate with more death and hate...

We enabled them, sadly, yes; created them, no. Their twisted ideology and version of Islam did that. The US, unlike Russia, does try to limit civilian casualties. It sometimes fails, and that can and will drive more people to groups perhaps like ISIS, but the big picture is, they only needed a catalyst. And it doesn't begin to explain in the slightest why ISIS has killed so many other muslims as well as Yazidis , who had nothing to do with the US.

Well, I'm not so sure about Turkey, actually. But yeah, no group in modern history has generated so much hate and provoked so many nations to make war against them. China is pissed off too now, reportedly, after ISIS killed a Chinese hostage, and the UN Security Council has unanimously voted to stop ISIS. I'm trying to remember the last time they did anything major unanimously. Hell, even Anonymous has declared war on them. They don't even get along that well with other terrorists! (AQ)
The entire world hates them and wants them stamped out, but everyone is tripping over everyone else.

Makers, what?? I'm saying the terror group, in using the name ISIS, is an insult to ancient Egyptian culture, namely ISIS herself; but also by extension I suppose Osiris, Horus, Ra, and hell, even Set.
ISIS (aka Daesh/ISIL) are an abomination that soils the name, and ironcially devalues and detests ancient cultures, as the destruction of Palmyra has recently shown.
That's an interesting conclusion you jumped to there, you seemed awfully primed to argue with someone. Or you have sex on the brain a lot.

So the Euro thing is the sole reason for the invasion of Iraq, is what you're saying?
Well, how well was the "containment" and no-fly zone thing in the '90s really working? There was the UN sanctions scandal, not to mention that the sanctions themselves led to an incredible amount of anti-US hostility and backlash, claiming the US blocked food and medicine from Iraqis, but which was Saddam's doing, as he was busy building those lush palaces. It was during the '90s that Al Qeada became fully formed (technically it began in 1988), Osama Bin Laden was enraged that Americans were on Saudi soil -the land of Mecca- and his Muhjadeen had been rejected by the King to fight off Iraq. OBL was then exiled from SA and vowed revenge; the rest is modern islamo-terrorist history.
We might've been better off going into Iraq in the first place and getting the hell out of Saudi Arabia. Both choices are lose/lose though.

I don't know about hungry, but I noticed a few years ago when I'd use it, I wouldn't get tuckered out while lifting. I wasn't getting winded. It really boosted stamina. Just 1 minute of rest between sets and I was ready to go again. Eventually though, that effect seemed to taper off, and I stopped with all that stuff. Well, partly because I haven't had my lazy ass in a gym for 3 years.
