Helios Is Ours

It is the closest one we have, but there are many, many more (almost countless) out there.

The sun’s closest stellar neighbors are three stars in the Alpha Centauri system. The two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, which form a binary pair. They are an average of 4.3 light-years from Earth. The third star is Proxima Centauri. It is about 4.22 light-years from Earth and is the closest star other than the sun. Ref.

More Words

October 21st, 2018 Comments off

Somliga saker kan vi bestämma över, andra inte.

Vi bestämmer över våra åsikter och vår inställning, vårt begär och vår motvilja – med andra ord allt sådant som vi gör själva.

Men kroppen bestämmer vi inte över, inte våra ägodelear heller, vårt anseende och vår ställning – kort sagt sådant som vi inte gör själva.

Det vi bestämmer över är till sin natur fritt, okuvat, obundet, medan det vi inte bestämmer över är svagt, fängslat och hämmat.

Det är inte vårt.

The Little One Said To Me

November 9th, 2017 Comments off

– “När ‘någon’ säger vad något ‘består av’, så talar inte personen om dess yta/area utan det personen menar och talar om är dess massa.”

– “Jorden består inte av 75% vatten. Däremot är jordens yta täckt av 75% vatten. (Det betyder att du har helt fel.)”

– “OK”.

Va? Vad i h**vete är det som pågår? Jag tror faktiskt inte att jag kommer att klara mig undan den här gången.

Herremingud, det är hårda “bjud”!

Jag nämnde att vi nu faktiskt vet när de tyngre grundämnena bildas.

Det periodiska systemet.

– “Vilket grundämne är vanligast förekommande i Universum?”
– “Väte”.
– “Vilket ämne är enklast? Vilket ämne har lägst nummer i det periodiska systemet?”
– “Väte”.

Poetiskt nog… så är det när stjärnorna dör som bl.a guld och platina skapas.

I sammanhanget, sade jag att jorden (Tellus) består av 75% vatten. Mm, det var ett fruktansvärt och tillika gigantiskt misstag jag begick…

“Everyday is a holiday.” eller som man bäddar får man ligga?

Picture: Nasa. @ nasa.gov. supernova = exploding star.

Approching 600 rather rapidly. This is post: 591.

I Think That I

November 5th, 2017 Comments off

No. There is nothing better. I don’t care what you think that you did hear. “Decorder” on Hardleaders? That’s it. I went to Uppsala to listen to it.

What? No, that’s it. No discussion. No arguments. No, “I feel that”. Pure f*****g breaks! Either you like it or you don’t. No considerations. These are the breaks.

Party Up

November 4th, 2017 Comments off

All dressed up? “Up in here?” And no where to go?

No, the original plan was early and easy. Yet, “If you don’t want to party? Your *** go to go.”*

Then an impossibly long sequence of completely random events occurred and eventually it turned out to be the best night out ever.

Ever? Ever! Ever never ever! The best ever. Belarus and Lithuania helped me along the way. The best night out ever.

It was… so beautiful. I felt like a free man again. Semper Fidelis.

I Know I Always Said

October 21st, 2017 Comments off

But, little did I know that I was actually (for once) speaking the truth.

What now, again?

Drum’n’bass mate!. You know that Jungle music thingy? What else could it possibly be? Right from the get go till now and beyond.

Fabio & Groove 2017? How excellent is that? it’s (never) not going to stop is it?

My brothers and sisters! Stand up! Bass is eternal and I will be the last man standing. Trust me. Come on!

PS. If you can indeed spot the track featured in the picture then you will get extra points. NB, No, I don’t own a single DAT nor do I own a player. I did own a MD-player, but that was a while ago. Ha ha. ; )

PS. II My categories really do suck.

What Is That Other Brightly Shining Thing In The Sky?

October 7th, 2017 Comments off

As far as I know it is still quite a mystery.

Our moon is too large and it is only its size that controls our planet’s rotation and stabilizes it. In fact our very existence is dependent upon it.

You know the, the laws of gravity? Newton did explain those things, so did Leibniz by the way.

We have a moon? You have heard about the tides? Have you ever seen them? The tides? It’s quite impressive thing.

That is, the moon moving the oceans on earth. Have you ever tried to move anything? That’s gravity for you. Moving the oceans…

Finally: we all know that our moon doesn’t shine at all, it reflects the light coming from the sun. The reason why it is so bright? It is closer than anything else.

Helios. (Please see below… )

I just took a picture with my stupid phone? Do you look at the skye? Ever? It looks exaktly like that. No tricks… I just took a picture of the skye?

You want to follow a differnt road? OK. I am not interessted. I spent my life-time doing something completetly different. And I will pursue it.
