Thread with some horrendous personal experiences.
Drowning doesn't look like drowning:
@ringo My random writings are here:
There's a lot more, but you need to hunt a little.
I need to do some work, but I'll be back later.
@ringo The distinguishing feature of mainstream scientific theories isn't that they are accepted by the mainstream, it's *why* they are accepted. It's because they make testable predictions ... they are falsifiable. The brief glimpse I had of this looks more like it's trying to explain everything and the connections, but unless it can make testable predictions, its usefulness is limited.
Probably a good read, though.
@ringo I'm generally unwilling to make snap decisions, but the web site makes me think my time is better spent trying to make a start on my existing tsundoku, and trying to write some of the 30 or more articles and posts that I have queued.
I hope you find it an interesting read, but suggest you keep an air of detachment ... from the little I've seen it's very much "not mainstream".

@Rod916 ... and in six months, or less, so will Australia. It's getting worse, and will continue to do so.
@Rod916 I would start a small forest fire.
When fighting *large* forest fire, "back-burning" is effectively lighting a strategic *small* forest fire in the right place at the right time to starve the *large* forest fire of fuel and bring it under control.
@eloisa So ...
1. We've chatted in the past, and I may yet take up your offer to talk in PT-PT. WRT witches ... "a people is a people" ... I deal with people as people.
2. No, I'm not a 'bot.
3. No, I didn't lie.
@ryan Hmmm ... an intriguing thought, but fortunately my nerd-snipery alarm has gone off and saved me.
But an interesting thought.
