Last year I noticed something slightly strange. Temps were perhaps lower than normal, and only reached into the 90s several times the whole summer (very uncommon, it's usually hotter) and yet there were almost NO rainy days, it was extremely dry. What I noticed that was strange was that the sun felt much hotter on the skin, even if the temp wasn't all that high(even if it was chilly), it just plain burned. What used to be a tan turned into extra-crispy. You can say all you want but the sunlight is different/changing.


@fido_dogstoyevsky;

I had decided to pass on that "flame war waiting to happen" but I reconsidered: I'm sure it'll be more interesting than arguing about political stuff.

Ok for starters I'll say that I haven't do much research on the "theory" and therefore my conclusion is based on my personal observations.
But I do find this amusing as well as just plain disgusting. Let the argument::begin()

OK... I'll say that the sunlight getting to ground level is changing, welcome to what we in the southern hemisphere have had to get used to over the last few decades.

Some time ago a crazy dream came to me
I dreamt I was walkin' thru World War Three
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda words he could say
He said it was a bad dream
I wouldn't worry 'bout it none, though
Them old dreams are only in your head

I said, hold it, Doc, a World War passed through my brain
He said, nurse, get your pad, the boy's insane
He grabbed my arm, I said ouch
As I landed on the psychiatric couch
He said, tell me about it

Well, the whole thing started at three o'clock fast
It was all over by a quarter past
I was down in the sewer with some little lover
When I peeked out from a manhole cover
Wondering who turned the lights on us

Well, I got up and walked around
Up and down the lonesome town
I stood a-wondering which way to go
I lit a cigarette on a parking meter
And walked on down the road
It was a normal day

Well, I rung a fallout shelter bell
And I leaned my head and I gave a yell
Give me a string bean, I'm a hungry man
A shotgun fired and away I ran
I don't blame them too much though
They didn't know me

Down at the corner by a hot-dog stand
I seen a man, I said, 'howdy friend'
I guess there's just us two
He screamed a bit and away he flew
Thought I was a Communist

Well, I spied a girl and before she could leave
I said, let's go and play Adam and Eve
I took her by the hand and my heart was thumpin'
When she said, hey man, you crazy or sumpin'
You seen what happened last time they started

Well, I seen a Cadillac window uptown
And there was nobody aroun'
I got into the driver's seat
And I drove down 42nd Street
In my Cadillac
Good car to drive after a war

Well, I remember seein' some ad
So I turned on my Conelrad
But I didn't pay my Con Ed bill
So the radio didn't work so well
Turned on my record player
It was Rock-A-Day, Johnny singin'
Tell your Ma, tell your Pa
Our loves are gonna grow ooh-wah, ooh-wah

I was feelin' kinda lonesome and blue
I needed somebody to talk to
So I called up the operator of time
Just to hear a voice of some kind
When you hear the beep
It will be three o'clock
She said that for over an hour
And I hung up

Well, the doctor interrupted me just about then
Sayin, Hey I've been havin' the same old dreams
But mine was a little different you see
I dreamt that the only one left after the war was me
I didn't see you around

Well, now time passed and now it seems
Everybody's having them dreams
Everybody sees themselves walkin' around with no one else
Half of the people can be part right all of the time
Some of the people can be all right part of the time
But all of the people can't be all right all of the time
I think Abraham Lincoln said that
I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours
I said that

I agree but think this extends to far more than just "Trump fanboys". The greatest danger in lumping together disparate things which mainly have in common "Things I detest" is exactly it's non-specific and malleable nature. It is possible and rather common that such "thinking" results in the same sort of blind derision desired by most armed forces who encourage such dehumanizing terms such as "Gook", "Slope", and "Dink" and so many more that make it easier for anyone remotely having any characteristic associated with the term (and it changes rather a lot over time) easier to mistreat, even kill, since they are de facto beneath contempt.

It only makes one decent point - who really cares, standing on a gallows with a rope around one's neck, what ideology, politics or religion is held by The Hangman? However that assumes you know who is responsible for your sentence and who is carrying it out, and possibly why. Clue, he's usually the guy with his hand on the release lever on the behest of more powerful and often well-hidden leaders.

Turns out 780,000 years is over double the time Earth usually takes between flips.

In the past 65 million years since the last mass extinction there have been reversals roughly every 300,000 years.
Then how in the world do they know they reversed 780,000 years ago. And how can somebody possibly calculate the 2 300,000 flips before that, seeing the flip time changes

I was not really surprised nobody didn't believe my take on the sun getting hotter, everybody who is outside a lot surely has noticed it by now.

What I actually was planning to argue about was

What I was trying to say(roundabout) in my previous post was that the Wikipedia link I posted was basically hog wash. Anybody who has studied "contrails" knows better. And that "chemtrails" are real.

Quote:
Past field reversals can be and have been recorded in the "frozen" ferromagnetic (or, more accurately, ferrimagnetic) minerals of consolidated sedimentary deposits or cooled volcanic flows on land.
[...]
Because no existing unsubducted sea floor (or sea floor thrust onto continental plates) is more than about 180 million years (Ma) old, other methods are necessary for detecting older reversals. Most sedimentary rocks incorporate tiny amounts of iron rich minerals, whose orientation is influenced by the ambient magnetic field at the time at which they formed. These rocks can preserve a record of the field if it is not later erased by chemical, physical or biological change.
