I want to believe it's true, but... http://www.snopes.com/media/notnews/giantcoverup.asp/

What is the meaning behind all the ancient monuments on Earth? Who built them and how and did the Egyptians really have power?
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

We went to Chris Hadfield's Canada 150th Tour last night. The more questions we answer, the more we realize we don't know 99% of what's out there.

Every single breathing living thing is valuable. If one thing disappeared, we could make a connection to many things that would be affected. Every living thing counts in their own way. I think the correct question to ask is what impact would it have in my environment if I were not here or of someone in my life wasn't here? Makes you appreciate the things around you each and every day... Sometimes I think we take this for granted.

That question came from a post from my fav neo-con who was postulating that only the white collar professional types were of value to society. I won't say who. I went on here to push the question.

Dear God: COULD Trump keep his mouth shut or has he just not being told unlike every other President who could keep their mouths shut?

Which one is it? :135:

Dear God,

I want to know exactly how old these dinosaur bones really are.
And did Trump manage to keep his mouth shut?
Oh, and how is it I won the lottery on Earth, being white born in BC, Canada and not having to illegally get here.
Why some souls and not others?

What needs to change first?

https://okanaganedge.net/2017/10/18/good-kelowna-women/
If you’re a women in Kelowna there’s a good chance you have a better education than most women in the rest of the country; you’re also more likely to have shakier finances, and about average health.

The wage gap, on the other hand, is more severe in Kelowna than the rest of the country, with women earning about 66 per cent of what men earn. McInturuff says those numbers have actually worsened in the past five years.

and women are slightly more likely than men to report high levels of stress in their lives (25 per cent against and 22 per cent).

Okay, so women in the Okanagan have to pay for higher education to earn our significantly lower wage, and naturally, we’re stressed and have less economic security.

Sounds about right.

Dear God, Do they? Do bullies who know they bullied others feel regret later in life?

Is this real?

Many do regret their actions, but I would bet that many do not, nor do they fully come to realize the pain they have caused. There's a small high school in the Okanagan with only 1 black kid in the school. She is called every bad word in the book including the "N-word", and the boys are totally unrepentant racists. They don't care, and the schools don't have the tools to deal with it properly. It's hell for the kid even though the teachers and bus driver are well aware of the situation and try what they can to deal with the situation.

They say the lines form "no pattern" but I see a 3D pyramid drawing..

Is it?

What was going on in the ancient World? And, do we get to find out after we die if we come prepared with the right questions?

Or do we come back over and over to figure stuff out? Is only one religion right?

Or are there parts right in all religions?

^^ Those are some deep questions but I'm sticking to the shallow end today.

If my doctor tells me I have to make a serious lifestyle change, does changing doctors count?
