I thought I'd change the subject for a bit to something I found yesterday. Tom DeLonge, former guitarist for the punk rock band Blink-182 is super interested in the world of UFO's. He has started a company called To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science that aims to promote the topic, the technologies that will come forth, and obviously, make some money doing it.

My opinion is that he isn't in this for the money. He has plenty of it - truck loads full of it already. I think he just sees this as the best way to try and mainstream a lot of information that has been held back.

Anyway, yesterday he had a live launch of this company and introduced the founders and executive team. You can watch the live broadcast here https://dpo.tothestarsacademy.com/. You can watch it in the video or read it in the links I posted, but there are some pretty connected individuals teaming up with Tom. These guys are not tinfoil hat guys. For example:

Quote:
Luis Elizondo
Director of Global Security & Special Programs
Luis Elizondo is a career intelligence officer whose experience includes working with the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense, the National Counterintelligence Executive, and the Director of National Intelligence. As a former Special Agent In-Charge, Luis conducted and supervised highly sensitive espionage and terrorism investigations around the world. As an intelligence Case Officer, he ran clandestine source operations throughout Latin America and the Middle East. Most recently, Luis managed the security for certain sensitive portfolios for the US Government as the Director for the National Programs Special Management Staff. For nearly the last decade, Luis also ran a sensitive aerospace threat identification program focusing on unidentified aerial technologies. Luis’ academic background includes Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology, with research experience in tropical diseases. Luis is also an inventor who holds several patents.


In the video, he states straight up that the threat from UFO's is real.

Also in the video, one of the speakers talks about a UFO encounter involving the US Navy Aircraft Carrier Nimitz and some fighters that were scrambled to intercept a possible UFO. I thought his story extremely interesting and here is a more detailed account found out on the web: https://fightersweep.com/1460/x-files-edition/. Again, no crazy, tinfoil hat guys. Experts at aviation and observation. Crafts the defy our understanding of gravity and propulsion exist and are out there. Who is making them? Us? Another country? Aliens? We don't know. But unless people come forward and demand to know and demand that we get in the game (like the space race to the moon), we won't ever know.

(And don't you love my grammar in the title of the post. I swear in my head it said "Something..". I guess I was too excited!)

Do you believe in UFO's by Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson.

Maybe the direct source isn't liberal enough for the board. In that case, here is an article from the Huffington Post! That ought to get the juices flowing...

Science by nature is very conservative, whatever the politics of individual scientists.

These are intriguing and exciting possibilities. The one potential source of future advances in technology I am skeptical of, however, is the supposed availability of actual alien, extraterrestrial technologies. This is the most likely to be unsubstantiated hype. I agree with Neil De Grasse Tyson on that point.

Uh. What's your definition of 'conservative' and 'science'? This doesn't really make any sense.

Right from the dictionary.

Conservative... b :marked by moderation or caution

a conservative estimate

Science... a :knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method.

Any more questions?

Yeah, Manhattan Project, cautious? or moderate?

Me thinks you confuse methodical with conservative.

Sure.

How have you managed to live this long without choking on your own tongue in an effort to breathe?

Also.

How long does it take to apply your clown make-up before you go trick-or-treating with the other special needs adults in your care facility?

One more.

What do you feed the monkey that randomly generates Internet posts on your behalf?

Thank you in advance.

I know the answer to this one.

It's really quite a miracle since his advanced Parkinsons' could easily make swallowing as difficult as you are suggesting his tongue might when trying to breath. I mean either way, he could probably get a good choking episode going on for our pleasure. If you stick around long enough he might even aspirate food into his lungs and die from pneumonia or some other pulmonary condition.

Just think of all the great jokes the folks on this board could get out of those possibilities. And why, pray tell, are there no wheel chair jokes being posted? You guys are really slipping up.

As for special needs adults in his care facility. I suspect he's trying to ride it out at home. You know, in the wheel chair.

If he's got enough energy to ____ post on the Internet, he's got enough energy to not give a dickhole answer. Don't want to be treated like a dickhole, don't be a dickhole.

Also, you're talking to a guy who wiped his paralyzed brother's ass after his motorcycle accident. Using the wheelchair as a sympathy garnering device is both insulting and patronizing. You should be ashamed of yourself. They're just as capable as anyone else to lead a full and productive life ____ posting on the Internet.

If you'll notice, I haven't responded to any of those types of mock posts until now for those very same reasons. Yes, he has a right to post here without sympathy seeking or people seeking sympathy on his behalf. No question about it.

Some of my people have been disabled since birth and others have developed disabilities along the way. I'm no stranger to disability.

My comments have nothing to do with sympathy, they have to do with what crosses a line from my own perspective. He may even disagree himself with what I stated. I didn't address simply the wheel chair, go back and read my post and notice what I went after first based on your own words. It was the choking bit.

I'm never ashamed of myself for straight up speaking my mind on this board or IRL.

I think if he has dysphagia swallowing his own tongue is the least of his worries.

Now you have two things to feel bad about.

Doc - 2

Jersey Girl - 0

Respectfully,

Your superior in every way.

I've got exactly nothing to "feel bad" about. Free speech. It's a thing. Don't like it, don't post. Everyone faces criticism here. You're not special.

I actually agree with you here. "Methodical" is actually a better adjective in this context than "conservative." I think, though, that both "cautious" and "moderate" are or ought to be implied by the word "methodical." I infer that you probably have no objection to that. Right?

Yes the Manhattan Project was very conservative in it's science. It went from the known principles of atomic decay of uranium established years earlier by French and Germain physicists. Establishing that a nuclear pile reaction could be controlled and maintained. Then experimented with means to achieve a critical mass for that uranium. The US was scared ____ that the German's would beat us to it.

I've read about that a little. I'm open to UFOs and at least once a year wind up watching some videos and read up on the latest sightings hoping there's a breakthrough. But I always come away feeling like, there's nowhere near enough solid evidence.

As the power of personal electronics increases, the UFOs recede proportionally into the background to remain equally blurry.

[quote="Doctor CamNC4Me"]

That's not how Parkinson's Disease works. I am confined to a Wheel Chair, and take Levodopa and Carbidopa to allow some muscle movement. Eventually this disease will interfere with my breathing muscles and I will die. If I don't inhale some food first. But I'm very careful about that. I'm sure your heart beats a little faster in the enjoyment of that idea.

I live at home with my wife who has become my constant caregiver. She tells me it is because she loves me. I believe her.

The last time I went Trick or Treating was when my kids were little about 36 years ago.

A variety of fruits and vegetables. What else does the good Doctor recommend?

Perhaps the liberal's juices are not sufficiently stimulated due to generations of them being snubbed by alien probers.
