    You forgot the IF in front of your quote. IF La Nina sets up . let it come either way, its still going to be winter and its still going to be long and cold.

    A team of astronomers believes that strange signals emanating from a cluster of stars are actually aliens trying to tell the universe they exist.

    The study, which appeared in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, analyzed the odd beams of light from 234 stars — a fraction of the 2.5 million that were observed.

    The bizarre beacons led the paper’s authors, Ermanno F. Borra and Eric Trottier from Laval University in Quebec, to conclude that it’s “probably” aliens.

    ....

    They also note that their findings align with the Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI) hypothesis, since the mysterious activity only occurred in a tiny fraction of stars. The hypothesis also suggests that an intelligent life force would use a more sophisticated optical beacon than, say, radio waves to reveal its existence.

    ....

    But there are more skeptics than not, including the authors themselves, who acknowledge the hypothesis still needs work. For starters, the data needs to be verified by at least two other telescopes and all natural causes need to be ruled out.

    “Although unlikely,” the study notes “there is also a possibility that the signals are due to highly peculiar chemical compositions in a small fraction of galactic halo stars.”

    I wondered what 'cooler winters' meant. And yes it means colder...but stupidly just for Minnesota, a few cheeseheads and our kid brothers to the northwest. Greater than 33% chance its colder.

    Which says nothing about long term climate change.

    For those that were discounting solar before. I think this is an awesome idea.

    A couple things I'd like to stop hearing:

    1. That by drinking lemon water or expensive juice, you can give yourself a "detox." Dear Food Boob,
    I don't need a detox, my liver and kidneys clean up just fine.

    2. That you can "boost" your immune system by drinking EmergenC or a fruit smoothie. Apparently, these people have never heard of autoimmune disorders...

    Scoobs, its not that this isn't a super great idea, that will improve people's lives and help create an entire industry that the world will buy from us (i.e., mobile phones). Its that these are ideas from liberals and therefore, conservatives are against them. We must prop up dead end industries.

    American science.

    The Europeans and the Chinese are doing just fine, thanks. Even if 4 years from now the US is on a cultural level with the Sudan, human science will continue. Even if America is dead, (1) we had a good run -- at least as long as the Brits, and (2) there's always the next runner to grab the baton. France --> Britain --> Germany --> US --> somebody Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

    This has happened before. You can't stop our monkey brains from taking things apart. It's what we do.

    Yeah, there's a lot of solace in living in a science dead culture, Kepler. A lot. Thanks.

    So once Trump/Pence get their thought police in place, are we going to have to retire this thread?

    Heck, no. It will be one of the best places to catch dissenters.

    That Mars mission is looking more important all the time. We should name the ship Mayflower.

    Kinetic energy weapons are very effective. All boom and no radiation (well outside of heat). Imagine an enterprising government starts mining space rocks (or space junk) and starts aiming it at solid ground or in the ocean just outside a major population center?

    Hey, I read too much sci fi.
