Fun with refraction. BTW, if you move the cube at the speed of light, the lines go faster than light!!11Eleventy
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

American Council on Science and Health wrote:The trend is clear: Rural America is literally fading away. It shouldn't come as a surprise, therefore, that the opioid overdose epidemic has hit rural states, like Kentucky and West Virginia, especially hard. And the latest research from the CDC also shouldn't come as a surprise: Suicides in rural America (labeled as non-core) have increased over 40% in 16 years.

Yeah, suicides are up, but I wouldn't kill myself over it.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

The explosion happened around 2004, and then increased from there.

2004 was the year that SC came online.

Do you know what this means?

Notice also all the dust coming from the Sahara – it tends to smother corals. :|

It looks to me like clouds condensing as they blow over the tops of the mountains.

I've seen it close up (from below the mountain top).

Nope: you see no "clouds" elsewhere (e. g. over the sea).
