On that note, I've read that there are about 3 hydrogen atoms per cubic centimeter in interstellar space within the galactic arms. Outside of those arms it's 1 atom per cu/cm. In intergalactic space there is about .0001 atoms per cubic cm.or 0.1 per cu meter.

^^^^^an amazing factoid that I truly found surprising, in a good way. What a great idea.

A huge tinfoil hat would be another great way of hiding them. Or build a massive replica 5g tower to hide an electrical station. :biggrin:

Houses are built without a back wall so hydro employees have easy access by using the concrete road running along the fence. City makes sure the "house" looks lived in - grass is cut, snow is shovelled, lights are turned on at different times, hydro employees park vehicles in the driveway.

Syndrome K. A made up disease that managed to save many from the Nazis.
SNIP
The disease did not exist in any medical textbook or physician’s chart. In fact, it didn’t exist at all. It was a codename invented by doctor and anti-fascist activist Adriano Ossicini, to help distinguish between real patients and healthy hideaways. (Political dissidents and a revolutionary underground radio station were also sheltered there from Italy’s Fascist regime.)

Wouldn't work with some photocopiers either.

Try and explain that to some people was a chore.

The age of starlight will only last for another 250 trillion years, so make the most of it.
In one thousand, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion,trillion ,trillion,trillion, trillion years.... the last proton will have decayed, and the last black hole will have evaporated through Hawking Radiation and /or quantum tunneling. And....for the first time in the universe's lifetime, nothing will happen ever again, and it keep never happening -forever.
