Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess games.com who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

You sound like one of those in-between-the-ears experts I hear so much derision about from...you.>

Actually, what <diceman> said is an observable phenomenon.

For example, there are mountains of evidence for God's miraculous or supernatural intervention in the physical realm, but no atheist will ever believe it unless he or she accepts Christ first.

I've observed this phenomenon many times.

I mentioned before that the US is not run by a president but by committee. (The primary members of the committee are all female ): Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and (acting ) secretary of state Susan Rice.

And members ex-officio Elizabeth Warren, Michelle Obama, and AOC.>

They are just the grocery clerks who are paid to implement policy. The actual policy is made by the donor class.

That would be true except for Susan Rice. She yields a lot of power and is probably making all the foreign policy decisions. The donor class is trying to take over the government but they'll hit a wall with Rice. (pun intended).

  diceman: From tga's UFO link:

<We are told they were able to detect these entities on radar, but the entities seem to have disabled the nuclear weapons. That means these super intelligent space aliens can shut down our most advanced weapons from their ships but could not figure out how to shut off the radar and cameras.>

Could just be confidence, and lack of fear.
(If you can shutdown our weapons, you don't need to hide)

We developed stealth to fight intellectual/technological equivalents, we wouldn't use it to take out an ant hill.

  technical draw: Change of subject. I am watching the Netflix series "Unorthodox". I recommend it. It has a realistic depiction of Hasidic life and customs. <WannaBe> you can see the shtreimel hats the Hasidic men wear. There are also authentic depictions of Hasidic rituals for marriage. There is also a brief but important mention of the Eruv. So far I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

My though was that they <wanted> to be detected and photographed, so we would <know> someone visited.

If there's no evidence, then those responsible for the battery would be deemed liars, trying to cover up a mistake.

  technical draw: I finished the Netflix series "Unorthodox". It is a wonderful series. An emotional roller coaster. And a great performance by lead actress Shira Haas. Beautiful cinematography in New York and Berlin. It explores areas that have been considered taboo in the Hasidic community. Well researched and completely believable. I highly recommend it.

  Check It Out: <td> My wife and I watched Unorthodox. A terrific series, and the lead actor was amazing. Agree with what you said, very believable and an insightful exploration of Hasidic culture.

That was a good surprise at the piano audition, too. Did not see that coming.

  technical draw: <Check It Out>. Very good. I'm starting to watch another series with a younger Shira Haas with another Hasidic story line. It's "Shtisel" (careful how you pronounce it!). It's in Hebrew not Yiddish. It's so-so because it's slow. It's not entertaining because you want the events to move on but they just linger around for too long. I'll watch it to the end because it's a short series then I'll give a full review.

  technical draw: BTW <Check It Out> Netflix also has "The making of "Unorthodox". It's very interesting how they made all the shtreimel hats. They are all fake! And the wedding scene was very elaborate with lots of extras. Uh, check it out.

  technical draw: Well, Shtisel, (don't laugh) is improving after episode 5 of season one. I might just binge watch it since it only has three seasons.

  technical draw: As an amateur linguist and an amateur physicist I delve into the world of Psycholinguistics (or in my case just plain psycho) and have concluded that speech is faster than the speed of light. To correctly measure the speed of speech you have to have a starting point. When does speech start? And there is where the controversy lies.

For speech to be useful (as in a conversation) ideas have to be formed. These ideas I believe is the starting point and the are formed in the brain. These ideas then have to go through an electrical type process in the brain, transform into sound via a mechanical form (lips and mouths, etc.)

Then the sound has to travel the distance to the other speaker (through the air). Then the sounds enter the ear and are processed back into electrical processes, enter the brain and then searched in the memory bank for recognition and then prepare all the parts to do it again as the conversation continues.

Have you ever heard two women (yes I went there) arguing? They go through all the speech processes without failure and at what I consider a speed greater than the speed of light.

Now the one problem is that the conversation is in air so the sound is limited to the speed sound in air which is nowhere near the speed of light. However do not fret as I am working on it and have a theory of "known responses" that are perceived before the actual sound arrives. I'll accept my Nobel Prize now thank you.

Too late, I stole your idea, and beat you to it.

To avoid all this noise:
