What are the effects of Henrys in the use of inductors? Answered

I'm looking for information that might help me find a reactor for my variac setup. I noticed that almost every inductor I looked at has a Henry rating, I'm curious as to how this effects the circuit. After reading up on what a Henry is, I'm not sure I understand what it is exactly. I have also heard of people referring to inductors by their inductance, would they be referring to their Henry rating or their voltage/amperage rating? P.S. My variac is a 125/260v 11A military surplus, for all those interested.

how to measure inductance using a bridge?

My LCR meter can only read inductances of mH to a few Henries. I need to make a 470uH inductor, since in my place inductors are not so common. How can i measure inductances at microhenries if my LCR meter's reading capability only ranges from millihenries to henries? Someone told me to use bridges like wheatstone bridge or maxwell bridge to have an accurate reading, but i don't know how to do it. Can you suggest any reference? I prefer doing wheatstone. Thank you in advance :)

What is the equation to determine a coil's inductance? Answered

I have been looking for the equation to determine a coils inductance in henries, but I can't find it. I want the one that uses core diameter, wire thickness, and wire length to calculate it. (But I'll take any equation that will allow me to calculate it easily without test equipment) Could someone help me out?                                                                                                                                                         Thanks!

Harry Patch 1898 - 2009

Let's raise a glass of respect to Henry Patch, (and along with Henry Allingham, plus their cohort) , the last Tommy to fight in the First World War. He was born a Victorian ( that's the 1800's ) reached his majority as an Edwardian ( early 1900's ) and died an Elizabethan, (that's nowadays over here in Blighty).He outlived both his sons, and he still had an eye for the ladies in the twilight of his years.Above all maybe was the fact that he was a pacifist.

Induction Heating

High frequency induction heating is basically a very efficient way to heat ferrous metals. Induction heating uses an powerful magnetic field to induce currents within the surface of the metal being heated. This means that the coil will not get hot unless the material being heated transfers heat to it. Induction heating is very efficient because no heat is wasted, no heat is wasted because the coil does not produce heat, the heat comes from the workpiece being heated only.

Wet Computer

I have a Dell Dimension 4600C, but it was ruined when my room was flooded (Thanks Joe the Plumber!). I know the power supply is fried (no power comes out, the circuit board looks white and wet), but I'm not sure if the motherboard is bad. Only the bottom 1/2 inch got wet, and it looks fine. Everything else in the computer works, but the computer was plugged in when it died. Is there a way to test the motherboard (without another computer or PSU)? Should I buy a PSU without knowing if the motherboard works? A new motherboard is too expensive, I might as well get a new computer, but the power supply is only $20. Henry

I need a sound playback/recorder IC for a certain musical instrument that I am building. 25 buttons will be attached to an ATmega644 microcontroller, and the microcontroller will tell the sound IC to play a different sound for each button. The problem is that I haven't found a chip that will store so many sounds seperately, so do you know of any???I've seen the Arduino Wave shield, but I am looking for something with not so many parts.EDIT: I have decided to use the wave shield design, so I don't need any more feedback, unless you have a really brilliant idea

How to make a lightweight 10kv 500 watt power supply?

I need to convert up to 500 watts of 12 volt to at least 10 kv. It's important that it has both +10kv and -10kv. Right now I'm thinking flyback converter driven by a 555 to 1000 volts then voltage multiplier to 16kv. It's important that it's light so I don't want a regular flyback transformer. I'm wondering how duty cycle effects a transformer. Does it effect it like it would with an inductor-based boost converter? If so, then according to this calculator http://www.ladyada.net/library/diyboostcalc.html I would need an 88% (88% high?) duty cycle to get 12 volts up to 100 volts with a boost converter. Does this mean with a 1-10 transformer I could get 1000 volts from 12 volts with an 88% duty cycle? If so, then I need a light weight 1-10 transformer. I'm thinking winding a toroidal transformer will be best? So I could get a ferrite toroid (I'm thinking material 61, size 114) and wind a 1-10 transformer, but I need to make sure it doesn't saturate. Do I find out the saturation just like I would an inductor in a boost converter? If so, then according to the same calculator, the higher the output current, the less henries I need. So that means if I don't draw enough power it will saturate? I'm probably going to use 25 khz, so according the the calculator, if it's 100 watts then I need a little over a 25 henry primary. But if I use 500 watts, then I only need a little over 5 henries? This doesn't seem right. Soooo according to this toroid winding calculator http://www.66pacific.com/calculators/toroid_calc.aspx with a material 61, size 114 toroid, I would need 2 primary turns if it was drawing a minimum of 100 watts (the lower inductance/higher current can't be right can it?) and then I would need 200 turns. Sooo my question are (haha) is this a good idea for a light weight high power hv power supply, if so are the similarities I'm assuming between boost and flyback converter correct, and if so, how many/how do I figure out how many windings I would need on each side of a toroidal transformer/ how do I figure out what inductance I need for the primary. I have pretty good experience making boost converters but I've never made anything hv. Very long question thank you this is for an ion thruster.

Roomba mapping and quadriplegic assistive device

Hello,I am a high school student in the San Francisco bay area. After attending Maker fair this past weekend and talking to the instructables staff, i am going to take on one of your challenges and developing a roomba mapping platform, and much more. Because i am still a student, i don't have the funding to purchase my own roomba, so this is my application for the scholarship. I have attended many lectures that have been made by the Stanford DARPA team, i would like to take some of their ideas and apply it to the roomba platform. My roomba will be able to map it's surrounding, where it will then process that information, creating an optimum route. I will also utilize complete use of all the sensors that are provided so you can keep track of everything that is going on. Mapping will be one feature, there are plenty more. A nice control system for your roomba will be made so you can access everything you need to know about battery life, run time, dirt picked up, etc....in a nice GUI layout. RSS feed can also be sent to your laptop or cell phone so you know what exactly is happening with your roomba. And because this platform will be used very often to guard my precious projects, i will throw on a wi-fi video camera and control system. This will enable me to control the roomba over the internet to scout around and see what my dog is up to. The video feed will also be told to record one pass around the entire house, if anything abnormal appears (chair knocked over, loud nosies, etc.)I am also a member of this years Palo Alto High School Lemelson-MIT invent team. Our project is to create an assistive device for quadriplegics so that they can control their world using countless lase r activated household items. Our quadriplegics friend Henry Evans said that it would be amazing to be able to control a roomba that drives around and plays with his dog. I will make it my personal goal to create a platform which henry can use to control this roomba using the assistive technology our team is developing. (http://robotics.paly.net/)There are plenty of other things i would like to add on if i have the time. The main goal is to make the roomba map it's surroundings, and be controllable by our friend Henry.I have so many more ideas i would like to add on to this if i have the time, and i ensure you that i am very capable to complete these goals by the required time frame. I'm very excited to take on this project, and i believe that with your help i can really do something amazing here that can be appreciated by the entire robotic community.--Daniel FukubaPalo Alto High School

Where to look for mobile app making info

Hi everyone, I have a project I would like to make in conjunction with a mobile app. Basically I will be making a container with a number of compartments, I would like to be able to monitor these compartments and find out if (and when) they have been opened. I would like to build an app with a simple GUI, a grid of squares for example. When the compartment is open perhaps the corresponding square would change colour and a timestamp may be displayed... For example. What I would like to know is what people may suggest is a good way of getting started with this project, where to look and any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am keen to learn and research, at the moment I just feel a bit lost as to where I should begin.  I understand making apps for android is much more financially viable, someone once told me it is much more expensive through the Apple app store.  So please, and books, youtube videos, forums, websites you can recommend for a beginner in this field who is keen to learn. Best, Henri

FIFA Day 1 Group A results

Day 1 of the FIFA South Africa world cup 2010 is over. Every team in the group has a chance to enter the finals as both games ended in a draw. Game 1 South Africa 1- Mexico 1 Tshabalala       Marquez Minute 55        Minute 79 Game 2 France 0- Uruguay 0 Personal thoughts on Game 1: South Africa has really surprised me with their skill. I really expected Mexico to win but the South Africans have proven me wrong. South Africa had a slow start but close to half time they started to play really well. Mexico had a very hard time penetrating their defense. Mexico had a higher percentage of ball possession and showed to be a tough competitor. In the second half things started to warm up with the first goal made by Tshabalala in the 55th minute. Mexico countered with a goal by Marquez in the 79th minute to even things out. Overall a great game. Good luck to both teams. Personal thoughts on Game 2: This game was very interesting although I thought the coaches of both sides made some mistakes. IT was pretty even the whole way through but Uruguay was being pretty tough on the opponent giving them several yellow cards and a red card. Personally I think the french coach should have put Thiery Henry in the game much sooner. A great game from both sides. Good luck to you aswell. Feel free to leave comments regarding these games and teams.

Brain Doctor Uses Cordless Drill to Remove Tumors

A British doctor is in the news for using a cordless drill, a Bosch model, to drill into patients' heads and remove tumors in a Ukrainian hospital. While cordless drills are fantastic things it's surprising to see brain surgery as one of their uses. Now if only Bosch would put that on the package.Minutes later the team of doctors, including one of Britain's most eminent brain surgeons, begins to break into the skull of their fully conscious patientœ with a £30 Bosch PSR960 handy-man's cordless drill. Amazingly, and despite the low-voltage tool running out of power halfway through the process, Dolishny's operation is a success, with his tumour skilfully excavated at the hands of Henry Marsh.The procedure, captured as part of a documentary to be screened on BBC2 later this month, was a routine triumph for Marsh, who regularly takes time off as a consultant at St George's hospital in south London to travel to Ukraine and save lives despite having access only to primitive tools. Also great is this list of makeshift ideas at the bottom of the article:- In 1995 two doctors on a flight from Hong Kong to Britain operated on a woman with a collapsed lung using a scalpel, a knife and fork and a coathanger to push in a catheter.- In Iraq in 2004, an American medical journalist removed a bullet from a marine's head with a drill used to put up a tent.- In 2003 Aron Ralston, an American climber, cut off his arm with a penknife after it became trapped under a boulder in Utah.- The following year Ines Ramirez Perez, a Mexican, delivered her son by caesarean section with the help of three stiff drinks and a kitchen knife.

The VQS range

Hi! These are my guns that are coming out in September when i can get my camera sorted. I've actually finished the 1st one, the SS-90 and this can be found here: instructables.com/id/90_SS_Desechos_P_90. Now these will be the VQS range after the initials of the latin for 'swift and silent'; 'volitas quod silensis'. You know in car firms like Mercedes and Audi you have upgrade lines? AMG and the 'S' line respectively. Well , this is one for knex guns. So for example, the P-90 style gun will be the (VQ)90-SS . V, Q, 90 (as in P-90) ,S ,S(sears sytsem). They all have individual names as well. Here is the guns they are based on - 1. Will be the SS-LE/'Bastille'. This is an old MK. 2 Sten. It has a firing pin and a side loading mag, with a working silencer (hopefully). 2,3 and 4. This is finished ! The 90-SS/'Desechos' - Spanish for refusal. This next gun is a cross between these 2. It has a sears system and 6/10 round hopper - also TOTAL customisability. 5. Hopefully the next to be built. Will be the M-1G/'Adamantine'. An M1 Garand. 6+7. Will be the CD-94/'Flint'. A cross between these 2, although they are essentially the same. The first is a Mauser C96 'Broomhandle', the 2nd a DL44 blaster used by Hans Solo. 8+9. Will be the HM-5S/Cetaebro - Greek for dangerous shadow. These are the H&K MP5SD and the MP5 Navy repectively. Hopefully it will be a choice of 2 - real semi auto, or firing pin for proper power. A detachable silencer too. Note: 10. I could be trying to make a Henry Repeater Action .22 rifle too.

We're stuck in a dark age of nothing new (only rarely something good might come out) we need to step forward . Basically, I'd much rather see some pics of a failed concept and what you were trying to acheive than, "Removable Mag Handgun" or "M8AR (MegaMetal8's Assault Rifle)" which is just a generic removable mag gun.

Instructables in the New York Times - In a Highly Complex World, Innovation From the Top Down

Instructables, and my Purple Shoes got a nice mention in the New York Times here.In a Highly Complex World, Innovation From the Top Downby G. PASCAL ZACHARYUSER-GENERATED content - from Wikipedia to YouTube to open-source software - is generating waves of excitement. But the opening of innovation to wider numbers of people obscures another trend: many of the most popular new products, like the iPod, are dominated by a top-down, elite innovation model that doesn't allow for customization."New technologies are becoming so complex that many are beyond the possibility of democracy playing a role in their development," said Thomas P. Hughes, a science and technology professor at the University of Pennsylvania.Consider: Electronic implants into human bodies; gene-splicing as common as cosmetic surgery; computer networks mining vast databases to discern consumer preferences. All of these innovations are the result of corporate or government initiatives overseen by elites."The process of innovation leaves out a huge proportion of the population," said Daniel Sarewitz, director of the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes at Arizona State University.To be sure, experts like Eric von Hippel, a management professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, argue that the proliferation of "user-generated" designs signals the "democratizing" of innovation. Armed with inexpensive digital tools and networks, ordinary people, he says, can band together to push their own innovations. They also can hijack existing technologies, taking them in directions only dimly envisioned by the original creators.One example is an electronic community called Instructables whose participants share methods for customizing standard products in unpredictable ways. The chief of Instructables, Eric J. Wilhelm, who earned his doctorate at M.I.T., where he was inspired by Mr. von Hippel, has posted a clever means of turning a white Asics Gel-Foundation 7 running shoe into a purple model. (The $90 official version comes only in a white-black-and-blue combination.)Today's Web-savvy consumers "expect innovations to meet their needs," Mr. Wilhelm says. "If innovation isn't tailored to them, they expect to be able to tailor it to themselves. That is a big change."But does this really mean that elites no longer sit at the top of the innovation food chain?"Elites have a lot of leverage but less than they used to," says Peter Leyden, director of the New Politics Institute in San Francisco. "More people are getting their voices heard." Mr. Leyden sees an emergent American "republic of innovation," where growing numbers of people influence what innovations are made and when.Skeptics, however, say that the rosy scenario is exaggerated and that user-generated innovation is merely a kind of "democracy lite," emphasizing high-end consumer products and services rather than innovations that broadly benefit society."Difficult questions are going unasked about who is participating in innovation and on what terms," says James Wilsdon, director of the innovation program at Demos, a think tank in London.In that scenario, needed innovations can be overlooked. For example, huge amounts of money are spent on improving Web search engines or MP3 players, while scant attention is given to alternative energy sources. Battling diseases like AIDS or Alzheimer's - efforts that lobbying groups in wealthy countries help highlight - attract legions of well-financed innovators, while big global killers, like childhood diarrhea and sleeping sickness, are ignored.Popular pressure to pursue certain innovations sometimes gets results, of course. In 2004, voters in California passed a law lavishly funding a stem-cell research institute - in a rebuke to the Bush administration, which has banned federal funding for such research. "This was a great example of a democratic adjudication of an innovation issue," Mr. Sarewitz of Arizona State said. Even so, bureaucratic and legal delays have meant a slow start for the San Francisco lab, which has not yet received approval to spend any of the $3 billion in promised taxpayer funds.The California example suggests that the balance between expert leadership and mass influence is hard to achieve. The underlying complexity of many innovations demands an ever-rising technological literacy from the public, and yet such an outcome "is a dream that will not likely come to pass," insists Mr. Hughes, a visiting professor at M.I.T.For all the hoopla over the power and promise of user-generated content, consumer-directed design and other hallmarks of our new golden era of democratized innovation, one of the iconic products of our times - the iPod - can't be customized (no, I'm not counting putting on different-colored protective jackets). There is an unbroken line between Henry Ford (with his Model T) and Steve Jobs. The new iPhone similarly reflects the elite, corporate innovator's drive to find one size that fits many.The cliche that committees can't create great ideas, or art, still seems to be true - though whether or not that is the best way to innovate remains an open question. Who knows how much longer?

The Memristor - they've found it!

This came out quite a few days ago, but I haven't seen it until today.HP's Henry Williams and his group have accidentally stumbled upon the fourth fundamental element in electronics - the memory resistor, or memristor. Basically, it's a resistor that changes its resistance with elapsed current flow, or total amount of charge that has passed through it, and retains its resistance even after current ceases to flow through it. From the article:"The classic analogy for a resistor is a pipe through which water (electricity) runs. The width of the pipe is analogous to the resistance of the flow of current—the narrower the pipe, the greater the resistance. Normal resistors have an unchanging pipe size. A memristor, on the other hand, changes with the amount of water that gets pushed through. If you push water through the pipe in one direction, the pipe gets larger (less resistive). If you push the water in the other direction, the pipe gets smaller (more resistive). And the memristor remembers. When the water flow is turned off, the pipe size does not change.Such a mechanism could technically be replicated using transistors and capacitors, but, Williams says, “it takes a lot of transistors and capacitors to do the job of a single memristor.”The memristor's memory has consequences: the reason computers have to be rebooted every time they are turned on is that their logic circuits are incapable of holding their bits after the power is shut off. But because a memristor can remember voltages, a memristor-driven computer would arguably never need a reboot. “You could leave all your Word files and spreadsheets open, turn off your computer, and go get a cup of coffee or go on vacation for two weeks,” says Williams. “When you come back, you turn on your computer and everything is instantly on the screen exactly the way you left it. "Apparently, evidence of memristors has been around for quite a while, but it was only until now, during the age of nano-technological exploration, that we finally have labeled the "strange voltages" we've found in experimental circuits as a result of memristor behavior. The discovery was made while doping Titanium dioxide with some dopant that the article fails to cover. Anyhow, the resistance of TiO2 changes with the amount of dopant covering it. Since the dopant does not adhere perfectly to the TiO2 substrate, the flow of charges (electrons) can move the dopant, and cause it to cover more or less of the substrate, thus changing its resistance. "Williams found an ideal memristor in titanium dioxide—the stuff of white paint and sunscreen. Like silicon, titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a semiconductor, and in its pure state it is highly resistive. However, it can be doped with other elements to make it very conductive. In TiO2, the dopants don't stay stationary in a high electric field; they tend to drift in the direction of the current. Such mobility is poison to a transistor, but it turns out that's exactly what makes a memristor work. Putting a bias voltage across a thin film of TiO2 semiconductor that has dopants only on one side causes them to move into the pure TiO2 on the other side and thus lowers the resistance. Running current in the other direction will then push the dopants back into place, increasing the TiO2's resistance.HP Labs is now working out how to manufacture memristors from TiO2 and other materials and figuring out the physics behind them. They also have a circuit group working out how to integrate memristors and silicon circuits on the same chip. The HP group has a hybrid silicon CMOS memristor chip “sitting on a chip tester in our lab right now,” says Williams."I think this is pretty awesome, considering the current breakthroughs in nanotechnology and downsizing of transistors, memristors would enable a whole new field to be born, and circuit theory may have to be re-designed.Like Leon Chua said, the man who first came up with the idea of a memristor, "now all the EE textbooks need to be changed."These next few years in the field of EE should be very interesting =)Image from Spectrum Online

Is my book good ?

Well i hate to bother anyone but can you please take some time to read this book i worked hard on ? i spent  countless hours of my free time over the weekend developing the plot and creatures so can you please take some time out to read the whole thing tell me what it needs or what would be good i already am 16 pages into the sequel so tell me if this is good so i can post the sequel ! enjoy Times come by Alby Chapter 1- beginning It was the night I would never forget,the night.......i....the......the last night I would enjoy life. It was spring of 2017 the night air was heavy in my lungs and you could faintly smell the BBQ and charcoal smoke from cookouts that died down hours ago I could here people talking and having a good time but I think my drink I grabbed the wrong beer it was Sarah's it was spiked I never would have noticed who did it at least it wasn't her to drink it. I simply enjoyed the sky line of Chicago filled with sky scrapers and mirror like office buildings it all seemed like a Bokeh picture to me the drug is taking affect on my body I feel dizzy . I hopped on the train, it was empty as for the weather gave a good reason to walk but I needed to get home safely. In about 30 minutes I was home. I clumsily walked up the stairs and almost fell it took about ten minutes before I opened the door, I then plopped down on my bed and ran to the bathroom and regurgitated everything I ate that night. i starred at the ceiling. I saw every detail to the nearest centimeter and then blurry the specks the marks swirled in my vision and I felt weightless for a while. I starred at the clock and noticed it was about 4:00 am and cursed myself for going to that bar with Sarah I threw up all over my bed. I tried to grab the phone to call the paramedics but I fell and hit my head on my night stand. I passed out from the concussion i fell into a deep sleep a very deep sleep. Chapter 2 Change I wiped the crust out of my eyes and felt my head a sharp pain rippled thru my scalp it was a Gash about two inches in length. i walked into the bathroom I pulled the faucet but all that came out was a wisp of air. I snatched a baby wipe and cleaned off my face I cleaned my wound with alcohol the sting ive gotten used to I used to get hurt pretty bad in the army, I got shrapnel in my knee and they sent me home the first year. I noticed a dead silence on the street I thought they probably closed it off for some type of repair. I put on my white tee shirt and noticed its softness and how it fit snug on my semi-muscular figure I was in good shape for a twenty-four year old, my mom would always tell me most of the people in America are fat but I guess she loves to tell stereotypes for what they are. I put on my jeans and not forgetting the belt this time either. I snatched my keys off the kitchen counter and headed for the door. I walked outside and paused too look at the empty streets filled with litter and carnage . My mouth wide open in amazement I asked myself what happened and pondered the different reasons riot,panic,fire what could cause such a mess, I walked towards a police squad car and smelled something rancid I slowly proceeded, I instantly veered back in panic I could not believe what I saw a dead police officer lying face down with half a chunk blown clean off his head. There were pieces of it every where splattered on the windshield and door of the police car and some on the concrete. I instinctively inched towards him and thought to myself that something bad is happening and I need protection. I unhooked his holster off his waist and placed it on mine I pulled off his Kevlar vest and put it on weirdly enough it barely was messy or smelled bad. I checked the pockets of the vest and took out a pair of keys I knew it belonged to his squad car. I first popped open the trunk and saw it glistening in the sun a Ar-15 assault rifle. I picked it up and the memories of my army training it just instantly popped into my mind. I guess it applied the same here, I slung it around my back and walked into the silence. I took out the pistol put in the clip pulled the slide back and switched the safety off and cautiously held it. I believe the gun made me more nervous than whats in the shadows, I walked down the narrow street and saw it the skyline of the city filled with smoke and fire. I stood in anger and confusion my home town ravaged broken and charred blood stained the streets and walls, but why.....why....how could this... I mean what could....d..do such a thing. I walked away in the opposite direction and then cut into an alley way to piss and paused as I heard a roar I looked up and saw a quick glance of the belly of a apache attack craft it quickly zoom by and then another. I looked away and ran out of the alley and then down the street to see what direction they were heading. They sped towards the lake area and then I saw a tiny black object fall horizontally from the choppers belly and it slowly fell, then a explosion. I could feel the vibrations. the explosion ripped the lake area into nothing....nothing..but....but...smoke. My heart skipped a few beats thinking what if the next one falls in this area I quickly broke my daydream and bolted as fast as I could as far as I could until I saw a woman crawling on the concrete she was Moaning and holding her stomach. I came up behind her and asked for help. She turned on her back “ Sarah? Ohh my god sarah are you okay ?” and she held a gun in her hand a Glock 22 model the slide locked all the way back and no clip in the gun. I kicked it out of her and and sprung on her she begged for mercy “albert you have to stay away from me im turning” she saw that I was armed and quickly told me the gun was unloaded and that she was sorry she told me she would do anything just get away from her . I told her “Im not here to hurt anyone I just want to help” I starred at her beautiful figure her perfect face and thin hourglass body but ragged cloths and red eyes from crying. How and what did she go thru that could turn her into such a wreck. She got up and put her arm around my shoulder kissed me on the cheek and passed out. I dragged her to an fenced off alley where there was a mattress I put her down and sat next to her .she hugged me and began to cry she than jumped on top of me “Sarah what are you doing no we cant do this now no!” I told her I will help her but I dont think she understood a word I said. She looked at me in my eyes I could feel her touch my soul, her blue eyes glared in the sun. “i dont want to die alone please” I stood up nervously, I was concerned for her health when suddenly I heard a bang then felt a sharp pain in my leg. I collapsed in agony and saw the cause of my pain a bean bag round I looked up and saw a gas mask wearing figure he shot me with another bean bag round in the knee, from his shot gun he then walked over my numb body and. picked up both bean bag's and threw it aside two people in hazmat gear grabbed Sarah and took off her clothing I screamed “what are you doing to her!!!” they did not acknowledge me they looked at her body like they where searching for something. Her passed out figure limp as a rag doll they removed her pants then her underwear I screamed “No!! you son of a bitch don't do it ill kill you” they studied a bite mark on her upper thigh they made some type of hand signal and left. the soldiers then they came and started pouring gasoline on the mattress and her body. the one with the kriss super V took his cigarette out of his mouth and then flicked it at her it rolled of of her shapely belly and hit the mattress her body bursted into flames and she spasmed and kicked wildly. Then the man pointed it me and said in a British accent “ knock that fuckin Yankee an put em in da ACP double time, thoes hungry bastards are comin” Chapter 3 world gone mad I awoke on a bed in clean clothes and a hair cut. I stood up and walked into the hallway and noticed that this was a hospital. Suddenly a hand grabbed me. “aey where do you think your going ya damn runner rapist” I starred at him & his arrogant look and heavily customized ACR bushmaster. “get the fuck away from me im leaving what ever the hell this place is” he then sprung up and pushed the barrel of his ACR into my neck. “look if you want to get devoured by those runners be my guest buddy but dont go exposing this place to the infection” I looked at him like he was retarded “infection what infection and why the hell is the army bombing populated areas” he looked at me the same way. “ where were you 2 days ago ? There was a virus it was originally H1N1 but it evolved up to 10 times now its got Chicago by the balls and its spreading across the world as we speak turning everyone into animals devouring and ripping people to shreds and then the virus takes over the dead body and brings it back as a runner also know as a fresh undead body that has the ability to run or sometimes sprint god forbid but after 2-4 weeks without food the tissue breaks down from constant use without fuel and they start to get slow and shuffle around” my mind felt overwhelmed I wondered how my parents were doing in Dallas. “so what am I supped to do here but be a waste of space” he grinned. “well you obviously know how to use a weapon and our records say you have been in the military. you cant take care of yourself out there so we will make you part of out kill squad. “kill squad ?” “ohh shit you mean you have never killed or seen any infected yet ? that means your fresh you can be put to good use in our kill team” he told me his name was henry the specialist of his team kill team Charlie-mike. He directed me to the staff sergeant who looked at me and said “well well well we got some fresh meat hope you ready for 3 months of hard core trainin cuz this wont be easy now get yo ass in the garage and clean every APC tire the armory I think the kill teams ran over a little too much runners” 3 Months later........ the training was more rigorous than the basic military stuff a the armory where there was at least a 100 others conversing and grabbing into boxes of gear. Henry took me to the gunny of the armory where he helped me choose my gear. I picked up dragon skin Kevlar with implanted ceramic & alloy inserts. I took some gloves which I cut the fingers of. My boots where the basic digital camo color probably a left over from the war in Iraq which ended several years ago when our president simply drew the troops out. And European troops and some Russians finished off the big time terrorists soon after we heard no more from any our genocidal efforts finally payed off. I went to the weapon stand where I had to fill out a ID sheet to make sure they knew I had training with combat rifles. I chose the ACR which was in stock by the thousands as a gift from the weapon companies to the American army. I pulled all the safety clips and then grabbed a eotech scope out of a box and locked it onto the rail system of the weapon. I attached a mag pull the every one of my carbon strength reinforced clips. The gunny looked at me with a grin and we left for briefing. Chapter 4 things get messy we met up in the garage of the hospital every runner hunter of this kill force a total of 300 men and women in the huge elevated parking complex of the hospital, a general arrived in the elevator his chrome glasses shined in the evening light so did the many badges pinned on his suit which fit his old figure rather awkwardly. he had two formally dressed men with him they both had desert eagles on there side holsters but the general had a FN 2000 slung around his back. it was worn and scratched its polymer body was embedded with and insignia that I did not see so well as it was obscured by the scuffs and grime he looked at us and smiled his mouth opened and he flung his cigar off the ledge of the building he then begun and explained in a dominant voice. “there are 40 spec op Humvee's set up in formation ready to patrol the streets of Chicago you all will be in sector 6 the most dangerous sector of Chicago but no need to worry we have full fledged firepower of 4 APC's which will Carrie your kill team to your objectives take as much time as needed the runners arent going any where. you will clear the sears tower area a hot spot for runners. look all you men and woman, its time to revolt and fight back. its time to say we will not be scared, we will not be intimidated, we will win back our freedom!!” the whole complex light up with cheer. As the two men in formal wear took out PDA's and started directing people to there kill teams the first man shouted “ Chavez,Williams,buck, and,Samson go to APC #1” I quickly advanced thru the crowd to APC 1 I slowed my pace and saw its matte paint job of digital camo and its pop up dillan machine gun turret mounted on top. I pounded on its steel behind and its back door unlatched I stood waiting for the rest of my team I saw all three walking in a line towards the door I saw him ,the man with the kriss super V he smiled at me and said “no fuckin way you tha yankee we picked up in tha alley way you mad cus we killed your little runner girlfriend” I sprung towards him and grabbed his collar and punched him in the stomach then elbowed him in the mouth all the color drained out of his face. “ if you wouldn't of shot me with a fucking bean bag I would of blown your brains out back at the alley” he looked at me and with blood dripping down his mouth “i was just doing my job. welcome to foxtrot 3 by my names john samson you can just call me hunter” I let him go and he limped into the APC then another walked towards me he wore a Grey baklava and tight fitting clothing and a vest that barely covered his chest which awkwardly bulged out he walked towards me and took off the mask. She looked at m surprised face and said “what ? a woman cant be in the military” “well I..I...I just did not expect to have such a high rank personnel on our team” she looked at me and frowend “were both specialists grade one my names Kelly williams” “a heavily armored male in a hijab walked towards me playfully he came up to me and pulled off his hijab he was a African American . “hey specialist now look Im basically here to keep the moral you catch me ? I was in the navy im Ricky buckman Just call me squid now what do you want to go by kid?” I smiled “echo” “nice choice” Albert “echo” chavez I thought in my head I figured that sounds good. We all jumped in the APC while a kill team of rangers in a heavy Humvee with a mounted sentry gun rolled behind us as the whole convoy of kill force 6 prepared for battle. I thought about all my training aim for the head,short controlled bursts a shot anywhere else just stunned them. They move fast so they have to be neutralized if you get bitten or infected kill yourself with the poison capsule that was given or a team mate would do it. I grabbed a Kukri blade off the weapon rack that was provided in the APC I looked at its razor sharp edge its brushed steel surface reflected no light I sheathed it and strapped it to my leg. I caught the eye of Kelly who was fiddling around with the UAV control panel she looked at me and smiled. The APC's lights blinked red prompting us that we are in a hot zone. The APC vibrated as the co pilot took out a pack of runners with the Dillon remote controlled mini gun. We all loaded our weapons and packed up some ammo. Hunter and squid looked at each other and they bumped fists. I put a clip in my ACR and cocked it I turned on the eotech scope and strapped on my helmet and then slid on a black baklava. The APC driver prompted a alarm which was the signal that the door was opening, the big metal door slowly lowered its platform to the ground and we all got out Kelly was the last one out she grabbed that control panel and slid it into her bag she ran out and flipped the close button on the APC. We met up with the four other teams in our sector who already exited there Humvee's. A black Humvee that I never knew was in the convoy rode up and a military adviser jumped out and barked orders like some scared little dog and then jumped back in glad that he wasn't us. He positioned eight snipers on the roof who where each divided into teams of four they zip lined up the roofs and soon each team where picked up by two little bird helicopters the rest of us where on the ground either Humvee calvary hit teams or long range grenade support foxtrot was positioned on the magnificent mile at least it was magnificent. We cautiously walked down the street with another team of 6 watching our back and little birds with snipers covering us and telling us where the nearest pack is. It was empty until we got a report a pack of twenty runners where heading straight for us about 3 blocks away we had about a minute to prepare, snipers took out some and only six broke there steady aim and where 5 feet away, I drew my weapon and just before I could fire a Humvee rammed half the pack of runners over my team shot at there heads to finish them off . I stunted back and fell startled by a runner with broken legs dragging its smelly corpse towards me, my team did not even notice as they where pre occupied with finishing off the pack it grabbed my boot and pulled itself onto my chest I pushed it back and hunter tackled it and shot it once it grazed its ear he then rad up to it and curb stomped its head in over and over, like an egg it crunched under his boot he then walked towards me and picked me up and then our comm's screeched with a danger code: sector red REPEAT SECTOR RED!! this is not a drill!! squid looked at Kelly “OH shit radio the APC radio the APC!!” Kelly hastily radioed the APC and it arrived around the corner ASAP she got in and took the panel out of her backpack all the rangers got back in there Humvee's and formed up a line of vehicle's and the APC was in front we all jumped in and squid popped open 3 of the four combat hatches. We took stance and poked our body's out of the hatches while Kelly was typing away at the panel. “Kelly get us that predator drone NOW!!” “on it Echo..about.....NOW!! get ready for some boom boom boys” she said over the comm a predator drone deployed from a building somewhere and roared across the city's night sky. The little birds shot flares into out immediate area and the military advisor said nervously over the comm “formation green zone ASAP make space for one more hummer!!” his hummer screeched into our circle formation at the middle of the block intersection. We all could hear the uproar and the screaming rage of the Runners it was 9:00 PM and my stomach dropped as runners came at us from every angle swarming in between all the vehicles as we took out as much as we can the advisor yelled. “Break formation head for lane 3 of sector 5 Kelly yelled “but thats a dead end we have no where to go !!” “exactly now MOVE !!” we hastily rammed out way thru the crowd of runners it was easily about 200 to 300 runners we reached the street which was a dead end it was blocked by a collapsed building from all the beach bombing runs. We waited for 5 minutes until we saw it our doom three times as much runners appeared and headed for the convoy. The driver looked bewildered “Get ready im breaking position” he advanced the APC towards the crowd its massive tires gripping the rubble and concrete so agile and quick. He opened fire the Dillon mini gun until there was not one round left. the APC swiveled madly like a dog chasing its tail, all the blood and body matter stuck to the tire made it impossible to control. The whole interior rocked forward on impact with the flipped car. suddenly a screech and the APC flipped over on its side. the runners ignored the APC and went for the group of Humvee's ripping the rangers out that had not locked there Humvee door and devouring them. We herd the screams despite layer after layer of Kevlar and Armour of the APC. My radio started to squawk. “ Pindad Panser down repeat,flipped on its side calling in little bird for support !! bring in UH-60 shadow for medivac ASAP!” I groaned in pain the impact was hard,i could taste blood in my mouth my world was spinning. my team mates did not move they where all laying face down. I soon passed out Chapter 5 delta crimson “Delta crimson GO GO GO !!” I awoke in a sweat, I felt normal again I wiped my blood crusted face off. I leaned up and saw them. “Squid Kelly Hunter Your all alive !” hunter smiled “the crowds not givin up. Hurry mate we got to get outta this APC or crimson is just gonna have to save us” Crimson was an elite rescue squad of some of the best rescue force members in the military marines,rangers,green berets, you name em they can save you. Suddenly we heard the roar of helicopters. Then the door of the APC light up and blew of its hinges a soldier in a crimson baklava shined a light me and my team he latched two metal hooks onto our APC and then the helicopter lifted us into the air, this vehicle the best attack helicopter crafted by the engineer crew over at Hudson base they called it the Shadow because thats all it was, a quick killer in the night. A man made machine manufactured to kill and thats what it was best at. I broke for the chopper and jumped in then squid then Kelly it started to take off right before it left ground hunter grabbed the bay door and climbed in. “forgetting something ?” He threw me my ACR bushmaster which started to look like the generals FN 2000 it was scuffed and marked in every crack and crease. A crimson medivac specialist handed us some refreshments and snacks he said he picked it up at his last raid. He gave me some meds, adrenalin shots use them as a last resort of energy he said. I looked at squid who was holding his dog tag “ man echo you see how that APC flipped on us I almost crapped my pant's” I laughed at the joke even if its not funny my team needs the moral. I looked it the pilot he caught my stare. “where going to the main objective” I sighed and looked away hunter looked at me and made some type of hand signal. “hey Kelly you think we could of died back there” “easily hunter luckily the runners did not find our APC interesting” I looked over at Kelly who was looking at the cracked screen of the control panel. “hey Kelly what all did you use that panel for” “i saved the whole platoon with this thing while you where taking a nap, now its gone and base is a long fly away. The screen broke when the APC flipped. And the predator drone crashed without me controlling it” “damn, nothing good ever lasts long does it” “well echo thats not true your still alive aren't you ?” I we both smiled and when the happiness broke it was back to work. chapter 6 Raid The shadow landed on the roof of a building about 3 blocks away from objective R.R.T.R (runner ruled territory raid) our forces had to kill all runners and take back the sears tower. Kelly was stationed on the roof with hundreds of other snipers .with her barret M82 which ripped into 2 to 3 runners at a time with its large caliber amour piercing rounds. Military advisors sent Ground troops they marched the streets for the main attack on the R.R.T (runner ruled territory). Soldiers of all pact creed and faction marched side by side. the ISF (Iraqi Security Forces) the IRA (Irish Republican Army) even the CIA and DEA forces were marching along with whole police precincts including the bulk of the U.S military. This battle was inevitable and we are going to win.

Ancient technologies revisited - the ATOM

Imagine a great war or battle.These days it means you imagine devastating weapons and huge destructions in a short period of time.But what would you imagine for a great war that happened about 4000 years ago, or some that happened over 10.000 years ago?Bow and arrow maybe? Some metal blades and axes if you are lucky?Anything that could make a big band is out of the question if we trust history and the timing for inventing black powder...Mohenjo-Daro is one of many ancient ruins that have been found and studied.According to mainstream science the city was abandoned due to some climate change or maybe a change in trade.Later excavation found skelletons in the streets, holding hands...Certainly a sudden and unexpected end for those found.But why are those skelletons still intact after well over 4000 years and show no signs of decay?Or why is it that predators still avoid the entire area?Further tests quickly revealed elevated background radiation - a nice term for saying there is radiactivity but we don't know why.Outside the area level drop to normal.The estimated 4000 years is based on carbon dating other things found in the area as the skelletons themself returned "inconclusive" results.A process called vitrification can be observed through the area on rocks, walls, and everything "rock".The material or at least surface was heated to melting point, lava and then cooled down again.Resulting in a glacing effect.Ancient Indian texts speak of a time of great war around 5000 years ago.Close enough for many to consider the time matches the ending time of Mohenjo-Daro and other ancient cities in the region.In those text a weapon was used that created a fireball thausands of times brigther than the sun that swirled upwards.The earth was rumbling even hundreds of miles away.People how saw it happen shortly after lost their hair and fingernails, developed painful blisters and died shortly after.Tell the same story to a modern human and he say it was radiation exposure from a nuclear explosion...The same almost identical stories can be found in other ancient texts, the oldest dating back over 50.000 years for the time of war(s).But we know humans definately had no clue how to make gun poweder, a cannon, let alone how to create a critical mass for a nuclear explosion....If no humans then who else?Carbon dating at those sites often provide totally different results.One piece shows for example 4000 years and another found close by shows well over 10.000 years of age.Considering the architecture, capabilities of humans at that time and assumed mental (brain) development, mainstrea historians tell us that humans could not have designed and planned those big cities.Apart from not having the required tools for the stone work and transport.In archeology people like to say that the deeper you dig, the older the stuff you find.If the same is true for these ancient cities than those dated relics from the deepest ground put Mohenjo-Daro at approximately 12.000 before Jesus was walking around...That would implicate that there was a thriving city for about 8000 years!!! until it suddenly got superheated, and exposed to radiation....And Mohenjo-Dara is only one of many cities in the region and even more with identical "marks" from around the same time can be found all around the world...The ancient text always refer to gods, higher beings or those coming from the stars as the ones at war with those below on the surface being collateral damage....Ok, let's assume we humble humans were not as evolved as some other humans we have not found through digging yet.According to the mainstream that wouldn't work because we already "know" how old the human race is and where it originated.And then there is this old GOD problem....Most ancient cultures and religions speak of more than one god, usually at least three are known throughout ancient texts with many refering to large numbers, like the greek, Hindu and even Romans.The bible make a big exception, same for the religions based on the same old topic.There is only one god.If so then why did he say "WE" when speaking about who created humans and "OUR" when refering to what image is used for the appearance of humans?Moses was an Israelite send by his mother onto the river to prevent being killed as a first born by the pharao.But when you check who fathered Moses you again find a god who had sex with a human female.God himself however never had sex with humans....Still Moses was his big favourite and got all the help needed, including food and water in the desert for 40 years....When a sinful city was burnt to the ground and a woman decided to stop and watch against strong advise not to look back she turned to salt.If a human body is exposed to intense heat and radiation it decomposes to ask - you turn into a pile of white ash that could be mistaken for salt when the wind makes it crumble and fly away.Especially considering that those who saw it must have turned around as well and they could not have done that without turning to "salt" unless it was all over or they were far enough away.Some say the god from the bible indeed use atomic weapons on humans for punishment...Nice stories, nice "evidence" if you interpret it the way you like - I know.Thing is that mainstream science and historians can't come up with any theory that is more feasable and does not rely on literally every text only refering to events in mataphers or by mythifying it.Once you have to interpret translations of ancient texts so they must exclude all acknowledgment of higher technology you are hinding something....Personally I accepted for many years that there are people out there with a strong desire to make everything (im)possible to look like the work of aliens.But the more time I wasted trying to completely disprove what I strongly trusted to be bogus, the more I struggled myself.Some things just fail to add up once you look at them with a wider field of view and a lot more references than what single texts and publications can offer.Once you start to accept that some "facts" we learn in school or through studying at a fancy university can be correct you start to question even more.For lots of things I found plausible explanations, workarounds and even basic ways to design things just using a compass and ruler.Still a lot of things failed to add up no matter how I tried and how willing I was to accept that someone used a bronze chisel and a stone or copper hammer to create 1000 metric ton obelisk....It was sometime in 1992 I think when I found documents that revealed the true accuracy on some of the ancient contructions.Be it the great pyramids or just granite staris in south america....Like some household bowls granite or even harder rock was used and precise angles created that even modern tools and machines will struggle to re-create.A box cut-out in granite with fully parallel (less than 1% deviation) walls and inner angles with a radius of less than half a millimeter where the surfaces meet!!I got hooked if you like...As a result I did a little "game" about a year later.Using good quality images I could find in books or online I selected a few nice granite creation from the Inka, ancient Aegypt and the middle east.After removing all background and adding and overly with dimensions in another version of the pics I contacted stone masons...Not any stone masons, only those predominantly working with granite or harder rocks and creating tru masterpicese.My request for the images was simple and everyone got another ancient object from me.All I wanted was a quote on how much it would cost me to have this piece replicated in granite - to the dimensions and specs as referenced.Not a single mason was willing to take on the job.A few stated it would take them weeks and most likely several blocks of granite to just figure out who to make the required cuts.And for the surface finnish they were lost completely....Does that mean just because we modern humans can't do some "basic" stone work that peole did with bronze tools that aliens were involved - nope...It only means that for some of the ancient structures not only hundreds of thausands workers were required to move this big rocks by hand.And well, that unless you had thausands of years to finnish your decorations you would have had a few hundred stone masons - all with identically high skills and identicaly accuracy when creating their pieces.Highly unlikely, but according to archeologists the best explanation we have.When I got back to researching for the Repulsine and other related "UFO's" I soon discovered certain annomalies when it comes to how science and archeology refer to our ancient past.One side tells us total bogus once they start digging in the sand, the other side refuses to at least consider that if all evidence speaks against side one than side two needs to provide real answers.The science anomaly...I you finace some expedition to dig out an ancient temple or city then you do that to get some postive out of it.In return a lot of our old archeological explorations ended with biased findings and translations.These days we have more and more teams working "independtly" from financial sponsors that try to influence results.And with that came the exposure of the science anomaly.If the grave diggers say it is some decorative item showing some bird or insect that it is accepted.If the same thing appears in texts on a wall and other Language specialists" learn how to translate the writings these symbols often caused gpas or totally nonsense translations.Then someone totally unrelated to it all build a model, puts a tiny engine in it and that things actually flies and performs perfectly....Of course some students of ancient wrtings try their versions of translating the gaps and misleading areas...And despite having no clue what to look for they translate and reference to flying machines or people from the stars - based on using the same translation matrix used by the real specialsts that claimed the text can't be translated...I found the same anomaly when it comes to things related to higher technology, even if it is just batteries.Total bogus from the archeology department, utter silence and no interest at all (offically) from the science department.Still the science geeks invested billions over the years sponsoring all sorts of diggings and translations...Only hand full of these studies were made available to the public...At first I thought it is just coincidence because of all the aliens nutters out there.But even things that even an idiot wouldn't try to link to aliens are affted by this anomaly.We have experts of an entirely different field making the wildest of assumptions to avoid even hinting people in ancient times were far more advanced than what we think.And those experts of the science field who could help simply refuse to even tough the topic - officially.Then one day it hit me...The same familes and companies that sponsored some of the greatest explorations of our times are still very, very powerful and influencial....And they all made more than just good money since those glory times...The power of the atom was harness and used long before we even thought about a wheel.Real and true translations of ancient text with an interpretation based on the Y2K bug instead of the 1800's reveal a lot more than what museums and schools let us believe.The discovery of several thought to be only mythical ancient cities in the recent decades started to even open up the minds of strongly religious people.If the city is there, then the stories about it must have more truth that just being a nice story...If evidence speaks against archeology then ther must be a scientific explanation - or at least a technical one.What would that imply if the "new" evidence it correct and archeology is indeed totally wrong?What would happen if humanity starts a nuclear war?Even if it would come to what we had during the cold war, it won't take too many modern missles to make the world uninhabital for most areas.A lot of land will be free from direct radion but the fallout, failing reactors and the climate change would certainly set back humanity to the dark ages.Let's say the cold war would have turned into a real one and only enough of the rockets were used so all sides realised the game is over for everyone already.After a few hundred years our big cties would be overgrown by jungle.Conrete, steel, roads and all would slowly decay.A few thausand years and not much at all will be reminding someone of out glory past.Humanity might have survived in bunkers for a while but there isn't a real way to prevent degradtion once technology fails and you have no one to fix it or replace it.We might still have stories and legends about a past where we traveld through the skies, even made it all the way to the moon and back - but they are then just myths and bedtime stories to scare the kids.We think we are well prepared with DNA banks, bunkers that can sustain thausands of people for decades -but what if it take longer until we can go out and stay unharmed?How would humanity change after generations under ground?And what would they find a thausand or two years later when they find our cities as ancient ruins?What would they think finding the remains of a nuclear reactor that is still "hot"?What would they do if they find some old and still intact bunker with still working tech and plans/designs?Imagine the stories about Area 51 at it's glory and now imagine what it would mean for a cicilisation back in the dark ages to find still sealed areas with usuable (for out todays understanding) technology?The truck might no longer drive, the engine might be fully seized and corroded but you could try to reverse engeneer it, replicate it, even find notes you can translate giving your a repair manual and details on the fuels and lubricants used....Imagine good old Henry Ford would have found a Haynes manual for a modern car in his backyard when planting roses....We would claim inventions or discoveries of someone else as our own now, would we?So if anyone would have discovered ancient tech or even the atom and made it usable we would know about it!?If that would really be the case then why does most of the world still think Edison inveted the light bulb? ;)History is always defined by the winner or by those in charge of writing or interpreting it.That is the beauty of ancients texts and writings - they don't lie like we do, they just use the words and mental capabilities of people that have no clue about science, math, technology or just astrology to describe events.History does not lie is a statement often used for archeology.If that is true then why does history say it was the american space program that got us to the moon when in reality it was high ranking Nazi officials that provided both the technology and the scientists?Why does history state the numbers on the arms of jews in death camps were an idea of the Nazies when IBM provided not only the computers and punch cards that corresponds to those tatoos but also did the data recovery after the war?History tells us other facts and disguises the reality because it suits the winner.America would not have liked the idea that Nazies got them onto the moon or that the millions Thyssen provided for the ware production actually came from US companies in return for steel - long after all trading with the "enemy" was forbidden.The companies and familes got never charged for this war crime....Back to the atom....If history as it was in reality was cahnged over and over again by the US government then why would or should we assume any different for ancient technology or the utilisation of the atom itself?Some theorists clearly state that science, especially theoretical science provided us with what needed to find ways to turn theory into reality.And thankfully a lot of countries around the same time period started to experiement with the atom - coincidence that the war lasted until it was evident Germany is just weeks away for having enough material for their own nuclear bomb and already the rocket in a late building state to carry it all the way to New York?History shows us an entirely different picture of Germany before the Nazi times.Percision and quality at levels that caused envy in the world.And within a few years of a nutcase running the show there is a technolgical boom that should have taken several decades to develop...History like to state the Germans were just really good at what they were doing and that under pressure they got even better...Reality tells us that under the pressure they had they would have come up with all these ideas themself - try to think straight is your family is threatened if your don't deliver results...After the war it took decades to regain a certain level of quality and to come up with good inventions...And the US started a boom that went similar fast as before Germany's...Some theorists now start to claim that China is not only rich in ancient history but also in ancient sites that no outsider will ever see.The areas containing ancient cities that were discovered are entirely under state and military control...Only once there is nothing for them left some are opening to "normal scientist and archeologists"...Some insiders now make the claim that China discover ancient texts and matching technological remains for working cold fusion...Funny enough that an ancient city that widely used the claimed technology (in ancient texts) is said to be in close proximity to a few tiny islands disputed for hundreds of years not just by China and Japan....We know history is being manipulated on purpose to create a flase image of governments and religions alike.We also know that stealing things and peole and claiming them as your own is common practise - not just for the US if that still matters...We also know the moon is hollow, even NASA admits it, still history says it is a lifeless rock...If it is not: then what better place to suspect perfectly conserved remains of a past we state never existed?Does our ever growing need for electricity and energy of all kind plus our need for more space to humans explain the sudden urge to go back up there?I mean it was made very clear that we never need to go back up there again, been there, done that, let's move on - and the space program for the moon was cancelled with rockets, equippment and astronauts already lined up and ready...Take a look at ancient drawings, statues and texts and try not to see or think about modern technology when you find strange things.The more you look the more you wonder how those stories would sound if a modern human would have been present, how a modern human would put what he saw into images and carvings....One picture shows a thriving city, the next shows a great fireball rising UP, the last picture shows only flat land, ruins covered in ash and pushed over trees for miles - what would those images tell you if the text to them states hair loss, fingernails falling off, blisters and a painful death shortly after?They had no blackpowder, there was no vulcanos for thausands of miles, there is no impact crater from a meteorite - so how could these ancient people make a big city disappear within seconds and only leave glaced stone and radiation behind?If there is no gods, no aliens, no time travellers and humans could not have done it - who or what did?What is so important to feed us so easy to figure out lies about our own history, our own inventions our own accomplishments?What is it the Nazies never had, the US never took and that has period links to areas in Antarctica that are now "assigned" to US control?Funny coincidence that one of these "research" station is literally right on top of a base the Nazie never had down there.Linking it all back to the ancient Sumarian people, and good old moses himself ;)Imagine yourself what is important enough to feed your whole country nothing but lies for decades ;)Not that hard to figure out if you link the dots and spend a few weeks with you favourite search engine these days.The answer will surprise you when you find it - promise!
