My Data Base pretty well describes my view. Someone once said "Mr. Spock." I am most interested in facts and would like to meet others who are. To know if I joke, look for (joke) as written here. Wapermaster is a strange variation of "MasterBlaster" from the movie Thunderdome. The combination of idiot and genius. I like learning about and understanding nature and people. Looking for new friends as many of the old ones have become egocentric.

  • How much energy irradiates earth from the Milky Way in watts per meter squared?

    I really want to know how much energy impinges on the Earth from the central portion of the Milky Way galaxy. Many accept the input from Sol is about 1300 watts/meter squared. In these same units, how much energy flux comes from the central part of the Milky Way and strikes Earth. If this is broken down by spectral bands, even better.

  • Someplace where the weather is temperate and not hot, cold, or humid?

    I would like to find a place where there is 20 inches (50cm) or less of rain each year with more than 8 inches rain (20cm) usually. The highest temperature in the summer to be about 80°F (27°C) and I do not really care how cold it gets as long as the low temperature is above 0°F (-18°C). The dew point should never ever be above 50°F (10°C) anytime. Wind is fine. Often I have found between 3000-4500 (900-1400 meters) feet above sea level has weather more like this though this altitude is not a requirement. Am looking for a good place to live anywhere in the world which has this kind of weather. Landscape would likely have few trees with mostly grasslands. Can anyone help me with this? There is a place like this not to far away except it is in severe drought with only 4 inches (10cm) of rain per year. Do not want a desert. Grasslands is probably the key. Any country is fine. All suggestions will be reviewed. Links or specific locations always appreciated. Near a bigger city is also not important. As long as there is some kind of roadway. Thanks!

  • How to artificially cause eyes to become bloodshot?

    For theatrical use I want to cause vasodilation of the blood vessels of the eye. I know certain tribes in Africa use some herb to achieve really prominent bloodshot eye appearance but do not know what the herb or herbs are. I am not looking for simply turning the whites of the eye a brick reddish color, am looking for something to make the vessels appear in stark contrast like rivers of red against the much whiter background for a closeup. Web search has pretty much only revealed how to reduce eye redness. The opposite of what the goal is. Of course something somewhat considered safe would be preferred over the poke in the eye with a stick method. Lasting several hours would be a big benefit. Any ideas or knowledge?

  • A movie with Dan Blocker recovering from a lung disease in the mountains?

    Saw a movie once with Dan Blocker who traveled in the mountains to recover from some lung/breathing condition. It was thought in the movie the high altitude and dry air would aid in recovery of the breathing /lung condition. This is a movie and not a part of a TV series I believe and as I recall. Went to and did not find anything on the Dan Blocker page which fit this. Maybe I missed it. The movie spent a lot of time in the mountains learning/teaching the ways of mountain living. Any idea of what movie this is?

  • Computer solitaire lowers intelligence studies?

    I have had a lot of older persons try and sell me on the notion playing solitaire on the computer keeps there mind active. Observations suggest this is opposite of the facts with solitaire activity making them dumber and less aware. As a fact, learning new information does keep the mind bright and active. I am really looking for studies which show playing sorting type card games such as solitaire decreases mental acuity and awareness. Can someone point me to such studies? Have not found any studies either way not published by the game makers who always say how great their games are which I believe is total rubbish.

  • What is it called when asking someone a question and they ignore the question and give some unrelated remark?

    One of the most common forms of what I would call arrogance is when a first person ask a second person a question. The second person does not answer the question but instead makes a statement concerning what the second person believes the first person is interested in. Almost always the second person will refuse to answer the question if the question is posed again and supplies another statement based on a guess of what the first person might be interested in. I would say the second person cannot give a simple or "straight" answer to a simple question. Instead the second person continues with avoiding the straight simple answer in favor of guesses at the underlying desires of the first person.

    So here is are some examples.

    There is a feeding bowl for a pet animal which is blocked by a box. The box is being filled with items by the second person. The first person enters and ask when the second person will be finished filling the box. The second persons response is "I already fed the animal." This answer is unrelated to the question and is a guess about the motives of the first person by the second person. When the first person ask the second person again the exact same question the answer might be "I am just filling this box." Of course the second person had been placing items in the box for some time. The placing of objects in the box by the second person had been occurring during the entire conversation and obviously for some time before and would go on for some time longer unknown to the first person.

    Another example.

    The first person ask the second person "what time of day will you be ready to go to the market?" The response of the second person is "after I get dressed." It is obvious to the first person the second person is not going out to the market in the nude therefore this is no answer of any use. When the first person ask the same question again the second person might say "I need to get my clothing." There is no useful answer again about the time of day to be ready.

    I see this behavior very commonly in arrogant people as a defining characteristic and would very much like to know exactly what this behavior is called so I may reference to a definition.

  • If gravity is a field then why can't anything modify the field?

    So many seem to see gravity as a field is I just do not get it. No Faraday cage like construction effects it. Nothing bends it except another mass. It is always attractive between objects. And it has never ever hinted at a particle wave in its propagation. It defies modification by anything. Gravity just is. Every other energy flow can be modified and steered. Not gravity. Slippery stuff as it goes right through everything making even the neutrino, by comparison, appear to crash into everything and alter form or course.

  • Where does the energy come from to support the expanding universe?

    Everybody says everything is accelerating away from everything else in space. Acceleration requires force applied. If there is motion or acceleration when force is applied then there must be work done. Work done is a measure of energy. So where does this energy come from to cause the acceleration?

    There is so much shtick in her acting as to be pathetic. Of course a lot of people like shtick because it brings familiarity. And then there is all that "Now I am being this" type action. Again very like plastic put on faces and motions.

  • Why do many masculine Venus stick their butts (gluteus) out?

    Observation shows many of the masculine venus people rotate their hips and protrude their butt out the back. This is very easy to see from the front also because the front is rolled back also leaving the front recessed. At the same time many masculine venus women stick their breast out in the front. Butt sticking out the back and breast sticking out the front. This has almost never been observed in feminine venus but does occur in many but not all of the masculine venus. From the side view the rolling of the pelvis so the bottom of the pelvis is well posterior of the top of the pelvis can be plainly seen. This is not a question about if this occurs or not. It is the question of why this occurs as it so often does in masculine venus. I suspect something to do with the territorial nature of masculine venus but am looking for others insight into why this is so often the case.

  • Why do people often recommend the Canon Powershots when there are so many better choices?

    There are several commonly available cameras in the under $400 range, or even under $200, with better optics that take much better pictures and are easier to use than any of the Canon Powershot series. Even so, people keep recommending this fragile, difficult to use, easy to break camera with really mediocre optics. There are several other cameras that are so much better that cost much less and don't break because they do not have fragile knobs sticking out of the case. Further, the Cannon optics are blurry when compared to any but the worst of the cameras at a given price point because the Cannons do not have F-stops higher than 5. All the processing or mega-pixels in the world will not give a better image without better optics offered by a higher F stop. Higher F stop almost always means better optics which translates to a much sharper clearer image with more depth. What is wrong with these people? Why to they flock to these cheezy Canons? Marketing? Ignorance? Fad?
