    Direct radiation of light, IR that starts to smoke buildings fronts and vaporize people, and hard radiation to poison people gradually all travel at the speed of light. The blast wave than it films blows the roofs off and houses apart moves at the speed of sound in air. But how fast does the ground shock/rumble like an earthquake travel? And if a power plant or the high tension wires near them are destroyed at the instant of the flash, is there any time before the electricity, say ten miles away fails. Stated another way, would the lights go out in a protected site go out before the ground rumble reached - relative speed. Any other "slow" effects that are faster than fallout and radiation sickness?

  • How to identify the builders and purpose of the bridge across Harry Hines just north of Walnut Hill (photo)?

    The bridge is like a large pedestrian bridge and has fencing to keep people from throwing stuff into traffic, but the posts for the unfinished approach ramps are massive enough to take small elephants and there does not seem to be anything in the area to connect across Harry Hines with this expensive solution just west of DART rail station.

    Reading a book on 3D printing with various materials including the PVC that polymer clay ends up being. 3D printing could be done from 3D scan of hand made clay object, but what is a good program most like clay working? The ones I have tried are a lot like machining (drilling, cutting, pulling/pushing surfaces) or require triangles and nodes.

When I touched it, it was dry powder and only transferred a little to my fingers and when I got a wet wash cloth it came right off on the cloth and rinsed out. We have nothing I can identify that is this color around here and I am wondering if the dog was shot with a paint gun ball or similar material while my wife took her out in the front yard to "park" her. This is a working guide dog and my wife is blind. Maybe some game thing where people throw colored powder - certainly not common in Texas.

  • Do you hate the new format burying half or more of the categories under MORE>?

    I like to answer in 6-8 difference categories and more than half of those are now accessible only by clicking on MORE, and in one case by doing it twice. And the list of subcategories with a dark background is hard to read.

  • When did the idea that dead people immediately go to Heaven enter popular Christianity?

    I have recently read a couple of Christian oriented popular books where kids refer to their dead mom and dad looking down on them from heaven and adults refer to a widow or widower joining their mate in Heaven, apparently right then "I know she/he is in Heaven now."

    I have recently read a couple of Christian oriented popular books where kids refer to their dead mom and dad looking down on them from heaven and adults refer to a widow or widower joining their mate in Heaven, apparently right then "I know she/he is in Heaven now." Catholic theology requires that all persons who have not rejected God (those go to H-ll) spend time in Purgatory to expiate their sins, and all persons are sinners. Evangelicals and Pentecostals believe that the Rapture will take up the Elect some time soon and everyone else will suffer the thousand years of End of Times. So exactly when and from what faith resulted this popular idea of "Now on Earth, Now in Heaven"?

(and yes, I know that having all kinds of short pages so people don't have to scroll is considered wonderful but it drives me crazy when I have to wait for a new set of ads to load - and I don't have ads on my pages.)
