  1. Thank you for the translation! I do check as well but wont allow post solely not in English. I also will post a translated post that I have translated myself but don't always have time.
  2. My personal opinion is that you should always buy the best quality you can afford. Celestron telescopes are pretty good. I have a Nexstar 8se. There are loads of lenses, barlows etc with low, mid and high range sets. Im pretty lazy so I bought a starsense sensor. You just type date and time and it auto aligns. It makes it tonnes easier. Celestron do do other much cheaper telescopes but I have no experiense with them. Maybe there is a astronomy group near where you live. Might be worth going one night and checking out what gear they use Yes I have seen Andromeda through my telescope. Deep space object are still pretty vague. Mainly with planets you get more for your money.
  3. Its probably not the only way to go about things but for me what you're doing is the most logical and sensible way. If you have a small group who are willing to do the work you can create a good food source through growing your own stuff. Lots of trial and error but needs dictate the right direction imo. Eating in a larger group to save money on fuel and ingredients is a good idea if you can put up with it as well. We et a lot of meals using rice or legumes with fresh veg. Pretty cheap and as we all enjoy it when times become harder we don't need to adapt so much. Anyone who doesnt have one should buy an Instapot or something similar. You can literally could pretty much anything in a fraction of the time. Massive saving on water and energy. Plus all the goodness remains in the food. Not tipped away.
  4. You can see andromeda with the naked eye. Its a bit fuzzy from where I can observe it but then it is light years away. I've observed multiple galaxies, clusters etc. If you dont know about it, there is an app called starwalk 2. Its not the only reference material I use but the free version is spot on. Just point in the right direction and easily identify anything observable with the naked eye. If you ever get into buying a telescope take your time. Its an absolute nightmare choosing the right equipment. I've spent too much money in the past buying gear which doesn't suit me afterwards. Much like dslr cameras the attachments are very expensive. And buying cheap is a waste of time. I struggle sometimes to remember what is correct with things. I read so much that sources get jumbled and info skewed!
  5. I agree. Its hard sometimes to know who to trust. Especially with what is going on. Where I am in Cornwall UK there are quite a lot of people similarly minded. The issue for me is that some have become "celebrities" within the movement, convinced of their own importance. They are all very narrow minded imo. I need to be around open minded people. People willing to debate not scream. Take action not get others to do it for them. I believe some of them feel they are the future rulers. I will stand up and defend what is important to me. I just need to know that others have my back. As Im sure they need the same reassurance that I have theirs.
  6. I have all his books on audible. Really enjoyed them.
  7. No they are light. Our eyes cannot see it
  8. Yeah I wasn't thinking straight. I have UV a IR capability on my telescope
  9. Infra red is light its just not on OUR visible light spectrum. Visible Light Spectrum Overview and Chart (thoughtco.com) Your basically correct but IR is visible just not by us
  10. I get the past of the man but maybe he's woken up. Seen the other side. Im not sure. He's certainly persona non grata with the establishment now as far as I can tell. Be good to know for certain
  11. Our friend has just come over. Lovely lady but can be quite fiery when she wants. She just told me that yesterday she went to pick up her son from a local beach. As she has a disabled badge she parked on double yellow lines. An old man opposite was seen by her shaking his head. This naturally pissed her right off. So she starts waving her badge at him and giving him a mouthful. Eventually he managed to explain that he had Parkinson's. bless her the bloody idiot. Cracked me up though!
  12. Having a group of like minded people who support each other in the so called real world would be a really great thing. I would rather support people and businesses who's views align more with mine. Masons help each other out. Give contracts etc to fellow masons. We should do the same. Supporting each other through physical, mental and financial means if necessary. Im sure there are members here who are at their wits end. Knowing that they had support offline would probably be an enormous help. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting fainter everyday. One thing I do now is to ask any business I interact with if they support vaccines etc. Those that say yes lose my business. I have found it a good way to meet like minded people. I have also been surprised by there being more than I thought. When you consider how many support groups there are out there it could be a good idea to do it openly as well. Advertise a meeting at your local community centre. The powers above know who we all are anyway so wont make much difference. Not a meeting to agree with each other but to start a mutual support network. Just for the ones watching. I am not suggesting or endorsing the idea of anything violent.
  13. I thought free speech was already banned. If not its ultra close to being so. Odds posted this on another topic.
  14. Nails it. Government and media backed mob rule. Some bizarre mix between the Gestapo and the peoples revolution in China. I used to experience the mentality he talks about. Younger sisters both Uni educated, offended by everything. They would defend rapists and paedophiles. All backed by my brother and mother who would defend everything they said. They still live together in a biter home of wokeism. There all in their 30's and 40's now. The negativity and hate towards everything was intense. The best thing I did for me and my family was to tell them to fuck off.
  15. 12D12D12D. NO EHT KCOLC. What's your thoughts Sock. I can see your enjoying it
  16. I've got plenty of water at the moment so not any particular issue. I have a capacity of 2000 litres possible collection. Down about 450 litres at the moment. One good rain and will be full again. Having calculated exactly how much water I need for veg I know Im fine for weeks. It will be chucking it down like usual soon enough.
  17. Maybe the sort of affluence they need to be rid of. Maybe Trump supporting wealth. Who knows!
  18. Kept all his books even after the kids grew up. To nice to give away
  19. Nothing hinted at on South Carolina weather forecasts. https://www.theweather.com/south-carolina.htm?d=sunday
