furry greetings / I'm Back!
« Last post by Beag L. Howler on Today at 12:10:42 am »
Hey guys, not much to say except: long time no see! I'm trying to get back into the furry fandom, and I might start over with a fresh new 'sona. Just thought I'd say hi, first!

He will be sorely missed.  :'( He wasn't my favorite Bond guy, Sean Connery was instead. But I still liked him nonetheless.

Read it and weep, folks. The cuts President Trump wants in the 2018 budget. It ain't pretty. This is Trump's equivalent of "Let them eat cake." or He continues to rob from the poor to give to the rich. >:( The sooner we get this idiot out of office, the better.  :goldpissed:

Went to see the new ALIEN Covenant movie today. On a scale of 1-10, I'd probably give it a 7 or 8. I've read a lot of past articles and reviews that have said this film was meant to be more horrifying and scarier. Bloodier and more gory, Yes. But more scary and horrifying? I'm not so sure. Maybe? The movie also took awhile to "get up to speed" so to speak with the plot and action. Would have liked to see more Aliens and more Alien action too in the film. I thought the character of Daniels was great and a terrific nod to the past film franchise character of Ellen Ripley.  ;)
Will be interesting to see where the whole ALIEN story/universe goes further in the supposed ALIEN Awakening future film I've heard and read about.

Though there are some things that are unique to humans regarding the physical realm (like developing modern technology), we're not the only ones who can plan or think. A lot of animals aren't as dumb as they look. Goldfish, who are accused to have a memory of three seconds, actually can learn tricks. Several kinds of monkeys have been seen using rocks as 'tools'. A lot of species have social constructs, though maybe less complex as human ones. A co-worker from a company had a parrot who could recognise the physical sex of a human who walked in. Spiders who make webs recognise different kinds of weather and somehow seem to know what kind of weather it's going to be, being more accurate than a machine ever could. Pigeons were used for the postal system and are good at remembering multiple locations. Researchers are even looking at the intelligence of plants since recently. Earth's nature in general isn't nearly as dumb as many people make it out to be.
So are we the only ones who can think or plan? Not even remotely close. No matter what religion you follow, you don't even have to go as much as a single year back to see it, nor do you need to walk more than a single mile.

Trump Day 123
Our man Trump commented he had left the middle east while still in
Israel. Guess he isn't very good with geography as Israel is in the
middle east. Also he commeented when asked about security, Trump
replided defensively. I didn't mention Israel to the Russians. No
one ever said he did. So did Trump spill another secret?. The
leader of Israel was taken aback for a moment. Trump doesn't make
it easy even for his friends.

Flynn apparently is going to take the Fith instead of talking
about the Trump administration and his connection to Russia. In
the campaign Trump made the statement complaining about people
taking the Fifth amendment.Because if they did they must be guilty.
I wonder what Trump will say about Flynn doing that very thing?

The possible obstruction of justist by Trump is continueing to
grow even with Trump outside the country. Trump has spent most of
his life telling others do this or that, and if they didn't he
fired them. He is finding out that doesn't work as president. I
wonder if he will learn from his mistakes? It's hard to say as
Trump seems to have a very short attention span. So when he talks
unscripted he says what comes to mind. Even if it's irrational
or dumb.

There was a terrorist bomb attack in England, President Trump
condemed the attack, and wishes to rid  the world of such
activities. .

GOP
I understand they will start working on the new budget. Trump wants
to cut funding for medicaid, food, health care for kids, women and
the disabled to name a few. In the campaign Trump said he wouldn't
be for cutting help for the needy. Just more of his lies. Perhaps
some of his supporters will be hurt if his ideas are passed.

It would be interesting to know what creatures have existed
over the millions of years. Man goes back perhaps 2 million
years. At least what looks to be the  direct ancestory.

That leaves many millions of years unaccounted for except
in fossils.

Not long ago they found a human foot prints in the same sediment
layer as some dinosaurs. Could that have been a human of a lost
civilization that existed over 50 million years ago?

Skeletons of animals are in some ways very similar to our own. So
perhaps a line of humanoids exsited at a much earlier time.

It's not likely given fossil evidence, but still interesting to think
about.

Archeologists are slow to  accept new information especially if it conflicts
with their own findings.

Studies of our universe shows even slight changes in physcal laws
would make life as we know it impossible. It's almost like the universe
was designed to support life as we know it. Now isn't that interesting.

In all our vast universe it's very unlikly we are the only intelegent beings.
Short of warp drive it's not likely we will ever know where other life
exists.  Perhaps in the future radio telesopes will be built in space to
such a vast size they might pick up signals from other intelegent life.
Untill then we probably won't know.

There is a possibility optical telecops in space may determen from spectral
tests of distant star systems. Could show eveidence of chemicals
resulting from life as we know it.

Only time will tell.
