Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric: #2 Filaments in Space

It seems that viewers are particularly pleased with the second video in our YouTube series, Top 10 Reasons the Universe is Electric: #2 Filaments in Space.” The subject is the filamentary structure that dominates plasma activity in space. Of course, such structure has no place in the gravity-centric worlds of more traditional theory, but it is the…See More

Tom, regarding how to add pix, all I can tell you is how I've long since done it on my "How To Do It" page.  If you can show me a specific instance where you want to add a picture and it isn't working, I can look at that.  Otherwise, I have nothing to go by.

Well I have a good friend who just moved to Nolensville. She loves it there but she is very Christian and has already joined a church. So that will be her social life. I want to be able to fit in and make friends without having to join a church. She knows that I'm not religious but doesn't know about my growing hostility with religious Bible thumpers who seem
M to be getting more judge mental than ever. My mom is Evangelical and has stopped trying to save me. I hate living in Southern California because it is so crowded and expensive and there is no nature but I'm not sure if Tn would work. It would be a place to retire to. Husband is in the music business

I was initially raised Catholic by my grandmother. My father hated the Catholic church. Its good to be in touch with like minded folk instead of biting my tongue.
