I don't reckon the amount of subs means very much. If we're going to go off numbers, then - atheists are doomed? No. Plus, we don't know what those 828k subs believe in. We don't know if any of those are sock accounts (fake accounts to boost numbers). Plus, if I had more subs than that - does that validate anything I post? No.
I may have a problem with being addicted to information. I'll quite happily sit & listen to hours of ramble by a crazy man, just on the off chance that something may spark my curiosity, even more. Not that it's good to do that & nothing else. One must get up, stretch, exercise, etc. Science tells us that even siting for more than 30 mins is worse then smoking, apparently.

There are a lot of very smart people here (And I’m not talking about me) who will spark loads of curiosity if you put in a bit of effort and ask the right questions. And you will actually learn stuff.

So what? He may have seen the UFO drop it. Just because someone said 'looked like squashed pewter', you instantly believe them?

Yes, but I think I've heard a lot of the 'normal' stuff. It's easy to find normal stuff. It's shoved in your face. And if I ask you guys questions, I bet I'll be met with 'you don't know? Find it yourself, dummy', as it seems to be the theme.

...

There are a few "things" that go to make up "everything" we currently understand. "Electric" isn't even one of those things. Instead, electromagnetism mediated by photon exchange combined with two other forces and their quanta go to describing the boson and fermion nature of what we observe as "Standard Model" entities. Next, we have a description of the gravitational force distinct from this but that includes a term that fits our observations of accelerated universal expansion. Finally, so far, we have observed nothing to match the effects of the so-called Dark Matter that holds stars in their galaxies and passes, unhindered through all the Standard Model matter during galactic collisions.

Slightly different to what, is your guess? :ask:

You will be met with that if your question is easily answered with a google search. This is what is meant by “putting in some effort.”

There is Electric Avenue, though. You can just rock down to it whenever you want.

It will take more evidence than "he may have seen it fall from a ufo" to convince a reasonable person to listen to this bullshit radio program for two hours to confirm what we already know.

No mention of Harald Kautz Vella in the wiki... So I may as well drop this here...

Says here that Kautz-Vella's preferred research methods are intuition and kinesiology. Also, that in 2012 he discovered the reason for grass having stopped growing somewhere in Norway; Chemtrails.

That would have saved me listening to a two hour Youtube presentation were I not so reluctant to click on anything that takes longer to get through than five or ten minutes as an introduction to any new topic, issue or person.
