  1. Had no idea anyone else performed this other than Average White Band! I like it though.
  2. Woooah, this give me flashbacks to when I was a kid, I had a glow in the dark spider that was a similar colour but a bit transparent. It has the same little hairs on its legs. Only difference is that the body wasn't as fat. My mom hated that toy, lol.
  3. Well, you'll notice a pattern in the music I post here, but generally my favorite genres are: Funk, Disco, New Jack Swing, Swing, Old School Jazz, Electro, Ambient, Classical and Historical
  4. You could always have a YouTube account, and add all of the songs you like in this thread to a playlist (as that's where most of them are being played from).

    The power of water

    That's actually what dentists do, they use water pressure on their scalers. At least here. A few years ago, to try and remove to tartar behind my teeth, I would have a large glass of water by me every day for a long time, and I would sip some into my mouth and then use my tounge to push the water and air through my bottom front teeth but keeping my mouth shut, I;d do this for hours every day, and the pressure over time eventually shattered the hardened plaque behind my teeth and fell off. These days I use a home dental kit however, which is a sonic device and stone-like material to vibrate, scrape and shatter off the tartar.

    Our heart...

    I remember in school arguing with a girl over that when I was 11-12. I kept telling her during science class "the heart is in the center, not the left, that's your shoulder socket!" as she kept making the argument that I was wrong because during national anthems people often place their hand on the left of the chest. Which I then asked the teacher to educate her on as she did not believe me, and so the teacher did, lol.
  7. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/radio-signals-fast-radio-bursts-frbs-galaxy-signal-repeated-space-scientists-a8719886.html I'm sure this will spark a lot of "alien talk" in the media soon.
  8. I was reading up on an interesting individual, and is the earliest father of the modern evolutionist theory. No, it is not Darwin, but Alfred Russel Wallace. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Russel_Wallace What is interesting is that he first proposed the idea of marco evolution, however he was not an athiest, but a spiritualist. His ideas of evolution caused a stir in the scientific community at the time due to the fact that he was considered a radical and due to his religious leanings and crazy ideas. It would seem the scientists of the time were critical of macro evolution because of the lack of evidence and how nonsensical it sounded, and that fossil evidence was againt such a notion. His works funny enough though, influenced Darwin, the difference between him and Darwin however is that Alfred saw "design and purpose" in the workings of his evolutionary theory because of the patterns and seemingly obvious "direction" it had from an external source and creator, where as Darwin argued it was all random and not directed by anything, and of course because of this, Dawin was listened to by the scientific community, as opposed to Alfred, even though the theory at it's core, remained the same (showing an obvious anti-religous bias in the community, regardless of evidence for or against something). All very interesting I thought, and just how fickle the scientific community seems to be when something doesn't fit a narrative.
  9. It's an odd statement, as you'd think Putin has all the power in his country and would be able to prevent such happening to our brothers over there in the first place if he has such an opinion. But most likely just a front, perhaps to keep the other nations off his back if he plays the innocent one. Words, but no actions, so long as he can keep the pressure from other governments at bay. On the other hand, if he's being legit, it may just be due to the complaints already made by other nations over all this.
  10. Not all Russians are the same as this, Carlos...
