I defy anyone to go with a level and see if these two towers are level or not!


Here is a diagram of the Golden Gate Bridge as you’ve probably never seen before.

It’s a suspension bridge. There are two towers that stretch cables across and suspend the bridge across the water near San Francisco, California, my former home.

If you go with a level and place it against either of the two towers, they will indicate that each tower is completely vertical. They do not lean apart. They are 100% vertical.

Yet, the distance between the bottom of the towers and the top of the towers is about 2 inches. It’s further across at the top than the bottom!

How can that be? What would be the reason that two completely vertical uprights would be further apart at the top than at the bottom?

It defies reason!

Oh wait. The Earth is round. Not according to the “flat earth society” but according to real-life engineering. I defy anyone to go with a level and see if these two towers are level or not!

Should I become a Typist?

Yes. Of course.

These words you are reading were typed without looking at the keyboard even once. I look at the screen. There are two “bumps” on your keyboard below “f” and “j”… these bumps are so you can find them with the index fingers of either hands. I fiddle with them all the time. When I pause to think, I’m feeling the bumps with my two index fingers.

Touch typing is an essential skill. Don’t be a hunt and peck person. When my step-daughter came to live with us, one of the first things I taught her was how to touch type with various free computer programs available out there (I still haven’t looked at my keyboard while typing this — only at the screen).

Now Leanna, my daughter, is a successful computer person.

I don’t know what you mean by “Should I become a Typist?” You should learn the life essential skill of how to touch-type without looking at the keyboard, only feeling the “bumps” below “f” and “j” with your two index fingers, and watching the screen to make sure you’re typing what you want to type. Never need to look at the keyboard again.

So yes, you should know how to touch-type. I don’t know what a “typist” is, but if it’s what I’m doing to answer this question and rattle out an answer then the answer is yes.

What percentage of the earth’s water is tied up in the atmosphere (clouds)?

Great question and I don’t know. But this graphic will help us understand together:

Here you can see that there’s not much water on Earth. Basically the earth has high and low areas. The low areas have water. To us the oceans seem deep – 7 miles, maybe more, but overall, compared to the size of the planet, it’s really not much water. We can also see from the image above that we really don’t have a lot of air.

That being said, common sense tells us that not all the water is in the atmosphere. Only some, otherwise we’d have no lakes, rivers or ocean! So I’m going to guess – that’s scientifically called an educated guess, not a large percentage of Earth’s water is tied up in the atmosphere.

Now we could research this more with some Google searches, but my answer is just about common sense. I don’t think that much of our total water is in our atmosphere. There’s some, but we still need some left over to fill the lakes, rivers and oceans too.


Could a rogue planet possibly develop intelligent life?

Nobody has ever given an intelligent answer to what is intelligent life, but to simplify, yes, life itself could develop on a rogue planet. It might be a microbe or something greater, but we know here on Earth, deep below in the Alone_in_Space_-_Astronomers_Find_New_Kind_of_Planetoceans where no sunlight reaches, there are forms of life that live and thrive due to the heat of volcanic tubes erupting.

Life needs energy. It doesn’t always have to get that energy from the sun. There must, however, at least be some heat.
