Fridgehenge


How quaint, I want one (although I don't think it would fit on me balcony) and I only learned of it from this rather interesting article on Stonehenge and I have to say I agree with the guy.

Whilst on learning new things I discovered some very interesting facts about scorpions, the fact that we are long overdue a magnetic pole reversal and if I dig a hole straight down from my house I would end up out in the ocean off the south-east coast of New Zealand... better pack a dinghy then.

Finally in this post I include for your erudition this.

Excellent Simon Jenkins article (this despite the fact I despise him normally). I totally agree with his assertion that Stonehenge be given over to the druids (one of which I know personally) and this despite the fact that I despise druids) Makes absolute and complete sense. I drove there once and got so ensnarled in the tunnel and parking and tollbooth traffic that I high tailed it out of there and promised myself never to return.
My friends in Ireland were in a similar situation regarding a neolithic stucture known as 'Newgrange'. Before the picnic tables and National Trust style styling these boys would hang out in the burial chamber on a certain day and time when the sun would be funneled into the chamber and flood it with intense primevel light. The boys were of course tripping on certain mushrooms to be found growing locally. Now everyone wants a piece of the action and sandwiches need to be laid on.

Fascinating 13 thingy there! Placeboes seem to need more research in the manner of the scientist who thought round the problem and put it up for comparison by bombarding it with something else. Lateral thought.
Tetraneutrons should be studied in light of the multiple universe theorem.
Maybe there is a point of x distance from earth into space where we are accellerated and finally catapulted to a cold void of noithingness. Then if we have enough intelligence to leave our local environs we may travel further than we ever computed possible. You never know till you try and we have to try, we have to throw everything at it untill we understand.
