Mars doorway:
This is an authentic photo captured by a camera aboard the NASA Curiosity rover on May 7, 2022. NASA says the fissure only appears to be a full-sized door because the image is extremely zoomed in. Scientists underlined just how small it is, they said, about 30 centimetres by 45 centimetres.

There are too many layers of sedimentary rock to fit in a space 45cm tall. They would have us believe each layer is only 1/4 to 1/2 a millimeter thick? That's not how sedimentary rock layers work. I've also provided a wide shot with it far in the distance. The perspectives related to the whole picture, shows it was zoomed in because it was far away, not because it was very small. At least they're not calling it swamp gas this time.

What is actually occurring is that when you get out of breath, your brain goes into (for lack of a better term) survival mode. In this mode, the brain triggers blood to the most essential organs that must keep working for us to remain alive. Unfortunately, this does not include the bladder or sphincter muscles. The result is the sudden need to either urinate or have a bowel movement.


"I have found is that the quicker I rush to find a bathroom, the more I get out of breath and consequently, the greater the urge to go.”

"check your pulse oximeter!! When mine hits '90' and my pulse is over 105, I know the urge is about to happen.....I stop and do PLB slowly to raise my sat and the urge resolves. Each person is different. It is not always when you are short of breath, but you can have a low sat for other reasons and the urge will be there. I always carry a pair of underpants in my purse."

"I asked my pulmo dr about this... he kinda snickered and said he never heard that one before. I am starting to think I need a new pulmo dr. as he has also told me i will not, period...progress with this disease of COPD since I stopped smoking, but it is ok to try to work in construction as I have for 30 yrs."
"Unfortunately that pulmo experience is very common from what I have seen. A lot of questions we have should be addressed by our pulmos and not by copd forum members, yet that is not the case. I have had pulmos give me information that is so far from the truth, and in such a detached manner, that I feel as if I am with a robot.
And mine goes a step further, listing things like that as "anxiety", which is a detriment to getting proper healthcare, since many in healthcare only know the basics and look to a pulmo's notes."

"Insult to one's vanity couldn't be worse than to be caught by a whole crowd observing you take an uncontrolled dump in public. I'm just thankful it hasn't been that often, but the few times it happened I felt like I was going to die. There you are; you already can't breathe worth a d%*n, and you got to get organized and find a clever way to clean up without making too much of a stir."

"I'm a lucky man whenever I wake up in the morning and I'm not breathless. When that happens, I stay in bed for a while to enjoy it. But only until I need to go to the toilet. That's where the trouble starts, where the first breathlessness starts. After I'm finished, I come back to the bedroom and take oxygen for about 10 minutes."

"I'm not afraid of anything, except for suffocation. I've experienced the beginning of suffocation twice, and I really don't want that to be my ending!"

"In summer he can go out and sit in the garden for a bit, but in winter, it's mostly indoors."

"After the laundry was done, I used to hang it up immediately. I just put everything on the ground, and I had to bend over a lot. Now, I put the laundry basket on top of something else so I don't have to bend over so much."

"I would like to be able to go to the shopping mall, but that takes so much energy, so much energy, that it would have to be really necessary. Otherwise, I don't go there."

"We used to go walking a lot. We just can't do it anymore because after about 100 metres I get out of breath. So, we don't do it anymore. There's no joy in that anymore."

"It just goes so slowly. We don't really notice but other people do. They see that he can no longer do things that he could a year ago. For us it's just normal."

"It's hard to explain. Sometimes, I am working in the garden without any problems. After a while, I come into the house and boom, it's over. Suddenly I'm exhausted, I can't do anything. That's hard to explain. She [my wife] sometimes doesn't understand. But I don't even understand! Because one moment, I'm working and the next, I can't do anything anymore. It's hard to explain because you can't see any difference, I still look the same."

"I make calculations. Before, my lung function was 35%, and 2 years later it was 5% less. So, I calculate a loss of 5% every 2 years. That means that after 4 or 5 years, grandpa will be gone."

Prominent Harvard training civil rights lawyer Danny Sheehan has testified many times that in 1977 when he was Chief Counsel for the Jesuit headquarters in Washington DC, that he was contacted by Marcia S. Smith, Director of the Library of Congress’s Science and Technology Division of the Congressional Research Service as a consultant. Sheehan was asked to help with two classified reports Smith was preparing for the president – one was on UFOs and a second report dealt with extraterrestrial intelligence.

 As part of his consultant role he asked for and spent one afternoon reviewing the classified Blue Book files which included pictures of a crashed flying saucer being recovered. If Sheehan, as just a consultant to the two reports, saw pictures of a downed saucer it would indicate nothing much was held back from Crater who was the final customer for the classified reports.

 Sheehan reported that he saw the final classified reports that went to the president. In the study on extraterrestrial intelligence Sheehan reported that he read that it had been determined it was estimated that there were at least 2-6 extraterrestrial races visiting the Earth.

Secret service agent Harvey Jack McGeorge tells a story of being in the Carter briefing. The story came in a recounting by reporter Harry Lebelson who was then at OMNI magazine. Lebelson heard it from a close friend of McGeorge. McGeorge was a munitions counter weapons specialist.

The story told by McGeorge is that he was in the UFO briefing where Carter was told the and why the aliens were here, the religious implications, and the fact the aliens are in control. He was also shown the Holloman Air Force Base landing film which purported shows a landing of a UFO at Holloman in May 1971 where aliens get out and are greeted by base officials.

The Carter UFO initiative, such as it was, quickly approached its climax. Some individuals maintain that the President was given a UFO briefing at the White House on June 14, 1977, and afterwards was bound to secrecy. According to former USAF Captain Robert Collins, “a lone MJ-12 briefing officer” met with the President, accompanied by several independent sources. Together these sources produced a “reconstruction” of what was told to Carter, and this became known as the “Executive Briefing: Project Aquarius” document. It was later leaked to UFO researcher William Moore through a member of the Defense Intelligence Agency known only as the Falcon. Moore said that the notes he received were a typed copy of handwritten notes that had been used by the officer during the briefing. The memo itself gives the (now standard) account of multiple retrievals of alien technology.

Grant Cameron noted that a review of the schedule on June 14, 1977 shows that a meeting in the Cabinet room between 1:35 p.m. and 3:15 p.m., to “discuss appropriations for intelligence affairs in the 1979 Budget of the U.S.” could have been a cover for another meeting which did not appear in the diary of President Carter. However, there remains no hard evidence to support the claims that a briefing took place, and no proof has shown the documents to be either legitimate or a forgery.

In this context, the author [Richard Dolan] can relate an anecdote told to him privately by a well-placed source. In June 1977, a presidential aide who was “very, very close to Carter” walked into the Oval Office following a briefing that the aide knew had concerned the topic of UFOs. Carter was sobbing, with his head in his hands, nearly on his desk. Although the aide did not learn the precise reasons for Carter’s emotional state, he said that a few of Carter’s phrases made it clear he was deeply upset about the topic.

Jimmy Carter crying after being briefed about classified information regarding UFO’s is largely believed to be true by the serious researchers.

Corroborated by more than one witness, U.S. presidents are only given a cursory overview of the subject. Apparently, the CIA runs the program, only provide information to the President on a need to know basis, and do not consider presidential curiosity as sufficient need to know. This was implemented after Kennedy.

President Carter is a deeply religious man who had also witnessed a UFO with 6 other people. Everyone thought that he would be the one to finally release UFO info to the public. Eventually, the CIA had “the talk” with him, and afterward it was reported that he sunk his head in his hands and not only began to deeply sob, but was visibly disturbed for some weeks afterward.

He was told that the major religions including Christianity were programs created by extraterrestrials to prevent us from destroying ourselves while they ran their experiments on us – and that they made us.

“The grey being gave us a warning: We'd like you to leave. We don't want you on the moon.” - Jon Harold Lavine, secret NASA Apollo 17 astronaut, who says in December 1972, he communicated with a grey alien on the moon.

“We investigated a very large (3-mile-long) cigar-shaped spaceship first photographed by Apollo 15 on the back side of the moon.” - Jon Lavine, secret NASA astronaut on classified Apollo 20 mission.

“The alien cockpit had a control panel that looked like you put 6-fingered hands on it. And apparently, the controls, the ship's computer interfaced directly with the pilots.” - Jon Harold Lavine, 71, retired secret Apollo 17.

/ Re: People are keeping Windows 7 - Why?
« Last post by Psk on April 01, 2021, 09:48:15 AM »
More comments:
--Windows 7 is PERFECT! I have not had the system crash since installing it in 2009. That's why I keep using it. I bought a near-bottom line HP laptop for my occasional personal travel needs, and of course it has Win10. I hate it! Mainly because of the frequent updates, but also because MS chose such a bland default screen appearance that I CAN'T change when I am using the usual utilities like Control Panel, System Info and other general maintenance items. Even Task Manager, which now shows a lot more details that I can't eliminate. Rarely do I ever want more detail than the Win7 Task Manager gave me. I installed a Classic Shell that makes the desktop and most windows look more like Win7, but that doesn't carry over to dealing with System Info and the like.

What I really object to is the lack of border lines around information blocks- all I see is a plain background with free-standing text titles and headers, with numbers or other info either underneath or at the side, but no borders to separate the various subject headers and data from other headers and data. More borders and boxes, PLEASE!

That's just part of my rebellion; I'll stop for now and hope that sinks in to some of the brains at MicroSoft.

I should add that I have not had a worm or virus infection in the last eight years or so, probably because I have a router with settings that protect by isolating my on-line activities, and a free anti-virus program, plus enough experience to not get hooked by phishing emails. I am not missing a thing by not getting Win7 security updates from MS.

-- Hahaha. Some of the equipment I repair still must have Win XP and a few pieces need Win 98.
The real world is not all about video games.

-- Windows 10 is everything that is wrong with software now. Test with your clients, keep adding (unwanted) features, but don't fix what preexisting. Make changes for the sake of changes. Updates that prevent your machine from even booting. I had upgraded to 10, but I'm back to 7. I need stability not what's being offered with Windows 10.

-- Win7 does everything I need and runs the older software I depend on. No forced updates that delete or mangle my preferences. As fast and secure as I can make it, with virtually no worries of intrusion by the baddies. Older scanner and printers work perfectly. I have backups of everything and even have a copy of the base machine as a virtual machine.

-- I bought new Win 10 equipment because of Win 7 phase out and ever since have lived in a state of fear about Win 10--with its forced defective updates and intrusions and confusions. I can't warm up to it and really miss Win 7 which I've kept on a laptop I don't use now. I think Bill Gates needs to return and shape up the company because it's getting quite out of control and going all over the place. It's one thing for him to be curing infectious diseases in Africa and another to be ignoring all the evils infecting computers at home and globally.

-- The IT dept has exactly that problem. Updates make the system not work with the hardware without hours of fiddling and talking to the hardware MFG, Then they get it going and another update comes out.

-- Horror stories of lost whatever and nothing really that I need that 7 doesn't supply. Now if I start having problems with browsers or downloading or moving stuff between devices I might consider it but there is no reason for me to do so at this time. It's not like I haven't tried it. I did and I hated the sub menus not to mention it seemed to drag my considerably decent laptop into slow mode. I still have it on 7 and it works like a dream and we are talking about a 12 year old HP 17 inch.

-- I use W8.1 instead. People should give it a try.

If you use Classic Shell Start menu, disable Indexing, and install Avast free (to disable Windows defender from running whenever if flippin well feels like it), W8.1 is great

-- Until I see a checkbox in Windows 10 for the option "Disable all updates until I choose to come back and uncheck this box", I'm not using it. I want my PC to boot up exactly the same as the last time I used it. No surprises. No driver update problems. No "new features". No features suddenly disappearing. Put another way, I want a "Leave my PC the **** alone" option, and until Win 10 has one, I'm not interested.

-- It works just fine for me. Why the need to force everybody to change. I realize that software engineers and high level managers have to justify their jobs but many people are fine using what they've been using for years.
