It worked for me when I clicked on it in your above reference.
Try again. I get a lot of those false no-goods from my provider.

I love this Aether, ie the stuff that works thru vacuums and space.
If the photon vs Electromagnetic wave is ever reconsiled, Aether will be
the crux of the answer, and thus defined,; better than just being the
thing that makes stuff work.

If I said .00003 radians would that have any more meaning than if I just
said 2 inches out of (100 yards* 3 feet * 12 inches)
or 1/1500 or a circle.
If 300 is bowling (at least I hope my golf's 18 hole score is better
How so we defing the radians as repetetive things. I guess it is how
your mind is trained.

It is something that leads to a theory that fits the known facts; and is
continually revised to fit new facts, or muddy the works.

Yeah, he has to get lots of respect to live long. "There are old

My notion of heaven consists of finally having the answers to all these
puzzling things in the world and the universe. I have often wondered if
we (our world or earth) coud be just another electron in someone else's
system. Just like we are big to the baccteria's, etc. Consider the mites
that live in our hair, and bodies, and think that is their world.

Gee, I took that as a given, that the big stuff moved slower than the
little stuff; so always swallowed the stuff about ion's being slower.
Do positive or negative ions move at the same speeds?

I think I am like the farmer who said he doesn't have to learn more.
That he isn't applying half of what he knows already.

Be flexible and tolerant. Skip it if not worth the effort to read.
After all, if it's neat, it must be accurate in premise, and other
details; if it's hard, maybe I didn't consider it worth a rewrite
I see how hard the blind struggle with screen readers, and just have
little sympathy for us sighted guys to cry about formats..

Msft is the most virus sensitive thing I know of. I liked the old
netscape 3; and windows 3. No worries. Unfortunately Linux not ready

edition, on my 3rd generation computers.
