As a DC collector I would have told you that Black Adam was a white guy. He just looked like a bad-guy version of Captain Marvel/Shazam, a goofy Superman knockoff. On further reading Black Adam is originally Egyptian. So he is African. In the film he is played by actor/wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Joh...

Another Link: https://www.usgs.gov/faqs/i-think-i-found-meteorite-how-can-i-tell-sure Maybe you can look at the links at the library or at a friend’s house. Most meteorites will be attracted to a refrigerator magnet and are shiny on the outside. They are usually not hot by the time they reach the gr...

You might want to take your meteor to a museum and tell your story. Someone there might be able to tell you more. My sister was about 12 when she was digging in the back yard. She was working on a school project. It was supposed to be a way to get water, a science experiment. The idea was to dig a b...

Maybe the golden rings were wedding rings? The whole rest of the song doesn't mention gold. Having bought jewelry for my wife I can say for certain that gold, real gold, not just gold leaf, is very expensive, even compared to silver. Give a woman a ring and it usually means JUST ONE THING. Good Hous...

Might cost less than taking a full set of masters degree classes at a university. For me I sometimes need external structure to learn new things. I would consider them for skill building. A lot of job interviews include a “skills test” these days. If you are rusty or, like me, program in many differ...

The Target near us has huge cement spheres painted red and steel pipes filled with cement sticking up out of the sidewalk to help prevent this kind of thing. The faster the car might be going the bigger the mass you need to slow it down. There was a private home at the end of a long winding road whi...

Last film I saw in the theatre was one of the Star Wars Movies (Episode 9 i think). We watched the second Incredible's film in the theatre with family. My kids like the Marvel movies. Are they recent enough? We also have liked films based on Agatha Christie books - some of those are kind of recent. ...

My son once had another student take a picture of him - a short video clip - in high school and report him to the school as a potential threat / shooter. My son is (and was) diagnosed as ASD. The school contacted his "resource room teacher" and she contacted me. I was angry. I wanted to kn...
