Supernovae are the most powerful explosions in the universe, unleashing enough energy to outshine galaxies. We have no real metaphor for their power - if the sun were to magically go supernova it would feel like you were being hit by the energy of a nuclear explosion, every second. For weeks.

    Life is the processes that happen within us. Death is the end of those processes. A living thing is a lot of other living things that rely on each other to continue the processes we call living. Or you can use a "levels of life" answer. We, humans, are the highest level. Plants, are the lowest level. That is because we have more advanced brains and are capable of a level of thought beyond our own survival. To choose what is dead, define what is alive.

Prove that weapon targeting systems use CURVE of earth. 7. Prove that the earth is rotating @ MACH 1 linear speed at the equator. 6. Brain-dead globers over SOUTH POLE: Use mag compass to prove. 5. Prove that cities can FLOAT in a MIRAGE. "What you're seeing is a MIRAGE" - WTF 4. Prove that SPACE Is REAL. No CGI's. No green screen faking tech! No blue screen faking tech. No photo shopping! 3. Determine the RADIUS of earth assuming that earth is GLOBE. Use your fuckin knowledge! Else join liars such as BUZZ ALDRIN 👨‍🚀and NEIL ARMSTRONG 👨‍🚀. 2. Prove that Ocean is CURVING (8" per mile )² Use P900, mechanical gyro, whatever else. Use your fuckin knowledge! 1. Prove that NASA landed on the moon. No excuse allowed. NASA lost all the reels is not acceptable. IF YOU CAN'T PROVE THEN YOU WILL BECOME A SEWER RAT 🐀🐀🐀.

Like father like son. Sex drugs and paedophilia. 1960 - Congo is now exploited by Belgians from a distance. 1962 - Now Rwanda and Burundi.: same case as of Congo. Federal government 1993 - King Baudouin dies, succeeded by his brother, Albert II. Like father like son. Sex drugs and paedophilia. 1996 - Arrest of Marc Dutroux on suspicion of child murder and rape leads to mass protests at perceived police inefficiency in handling the case. The investigation drags on for years amid allegations that it is being deliberately stalled. 1999 - Dioxin poison in food: Belgians were poisoning the food supply. 2001 - Eight BELGIAN CREATURES die in head-on train crash: Flemish-speaking signalman and French-speaking signalman being racist. 2004 - Paedophile child killer Marc Dutroux sentenced to life for rape and murder of several young girls. 2010 - Belgium's Catholic Church is rocked by an official inquiry's finding that widespread sexual abuse of children by priests took place over decades (centuries). 2013 - King Albert II abdicates in favour of his son Philippe. Like father like son. Sex drugs and paedophilia.

    Кашляйте и чихайте в сгиб локтя. Так инфекция не попадёт на ладони и не окажется в воздухе. Мне нравится девиз клиники Майо, он очень верный: «Десять самых худших источников заражения - наши пальцы». Когда вы кашляете в ладонь, вы затем можете оставить заразу повсюду: на кнопке лифта, выключателе, заправочном пистолете и ручке туалета‹‹17››. Неудивительно, что во время эпидемии гриппа его вирус можно найти на 50% общих поверхностей домашних и детсадовских помещений‹‹18››. Доктор Майкл Грегер
