Our galaxy, the Milky Way, contains
250 Billion stars, plus or minus 150 Billion.
(latest estimate -
look it up)

The universe contains 100 Billion galaxies.
(Latest estimate -
look it up).

So, how many stars are there?
Conservatively, 250 Billion times 100 Billion.
250,000,000,000 x 100,000,000,000 =
25,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 =
25 sextillion

Are we to believe that we are the only planet with intelligent life? With each star having multiple planets?

MOST stars are binary pairs, which orbit each other. Our single sun is in the minority, as far as solar systems go.

Which really piques my interest in "Ancient Aliens". I don't believe in everything about the speculation, but the evidence presented is VERY interesting, if you are open, and listen hard and honestly.

Watch the Science Channel.

Which brings me to #4.

On False Beliefs

From Cosmos

Episode - "Unafraid of the Dark" (2014)

1. Question authority.
   -- No idea is true just because someone
      says so.

2. Think for yourself.
   -- Question yourself.

3. Don't believe anything,
       just because you want to.
   -- Believing something doesn't make it so.

4. Test ideas by the evidence gained
   -- from observation and experiment.
   -- If a favorite idea fails a well-designed
      test, it's wrong! Get over it.
   -- Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.
   -- If you have no evidence, reserve

"I don't want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member."

-- Groucho Marx, 1959, to the
Friar's Club of Beverly Hills

Yeah, that's kinda it. I dropped Facebook because I was unable to ban people, who insisted upon splattering their brand of politics on MY PAGE. Not to mention that Zuckerman has proven himself to be a profit-hungry JERK, with no regard for privacy, fairness, or individual sanctity.


Apple, Macintosh, Mojave,
and Safari, in spite of its issues.

Catalina will wipe out all your 32-bit apps.
Being a late adopter, this is NOT good.
I abandoned the "bleeding edge" years ago.
I like to do stuff, not wonder why it doesn't work.

     7. Positive Outlook


My Advice to All

Strive for A Positive Outlook!
Attitude makes a HUGE difference.
Do not allow others to bring you down.

We can't change the world,
but we CAN change ourselves.
You can be positive from now on.

Truth, Justice and the American way.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
