I Can't prove that it was her that said the fish tacos at applebee's where nasty, but after telling her about a "CERTAIN PERSON" me knowing that the regular troll had been posting crap about another one of my so called best friends, I Figured it was her! as a matter of fact the night i told her about this person which lives in "SINCITY" we where hanging out at that friends house aka boogieman (speaking of the devil) a black bird just stopped at my window, hopefully it's not a crow i heard people die when this happens but it must be a highly hallucigenic drug user thing idk i hope its more of a white owl thing i remember reading something like that in a book of native legends, hopefully its not an urraca i highly dislike those pica pica's lol

Go away! You proved yourself last night. You are the worse troll and the weakest. Friendly ol you. All Goo Crew are cowards. Lookin to start sh!t. Work those fingers all you want! I know you and you know me!
I don't care if never met or ever meet. You are the most sneaky and most untrusworthy. To begin with you hurt the feelings of some of my friends in Scottsvegas because your heartless ass had to join forces with an anti-patriot coward. That's right,then played your trick last night.

Yep I know you very well. You do not care about a damn thing here except harassing people, and that's illegal.

Secret 'Hubbles' given to NASA Time

not a secret anymore....

Space

NASA Gets Two New Hubble Telescopes — Absolutely Free

It hardly bears mentioning that the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most extraordinarily successful scientific instruments of all time. Since 1993, when the telescope's flawed mirror was set right by a set of custom-fit corrective lenses, the Hubble has captured one spectacular image after another of everything from the familiar planets of the solar system to quasars and galaxies at the edge of the visible universe — and thanks to four repair missions by shuttle-riding astronauts, the telescope has managed to survive the harsh environment of orbital space far longer than anyone could have imagined.

All good things must come to an end, though. The shuttle is flying no more, and within the next couple of years, the aging telescope will gradually wink out too. It will be a terrible loss to science, and it kind of makes you wish someone had a spare Hubble secretly stashed away, just waiting to be unpacked and sent into orbit. That's what would happen in the Hollywood version, anyway.

But it turns out that it is happening in real life too. The National Science Foundation has just revealed the existence of not one but two pristine, Hubble-class space telescopes still in their original wrappings in a warehouse in Rochester, N.Y. The pair was originally built for the National Reconnaissance Office, the agency in charge of spy satellites, to look down at Earth rather than up into space. But the NRO has moved on to bigger and better instruments, and decided to hand the telescopes over. "It just blew me away when I heard about this," says Princeton astrophysicist David Spergel, a member of the National Academy of Science's Committee on Astrophysics and Astronomy. "I knew nothing about it."

Wait for it.....a BIRD story:

Did early birds exterminate giant insects?
Published June 05, 2012

An image of a 7.5-inch-long 300-million year old fossil wing from Stephanotypus schneideri, along with an illustration of the largest relatively recent insect wing for comparison, that of 12-million-year-old 2.6-inch-long Epiaeschna lucida wing.(Wolfgang Zessin, Matthew Clapham)

An image of a 7.5-inch-long 300-million year old fossil wing from Stephanotypus schneideri, along with an illustration of the largest relatively recent insect wing for comparison, that of 12-million-year-old 2.6-inch-long Epiaeschna lucida wing.(Wolfgang Zessin, Matthew Clapham)

Giant insects that ruled prehistoric skies for millions of years may have met their end due to the evolution of predatory birds, researchers say.

Gigantic insects once dominated the Earth. About 300 million years ago, during the late Carboniferous and early Permian periods, the largest flying insects known, the predatory dragonfly-like griffinflies, had wingspans of up to 28 inches, about the same as the modern wood duck.

The leading theory of how flying insects reached such stupendous sizes has to do with past periods of high oxygen concentrations in the atmosphere, reaching up to some 50 percent richer than today. All this extra oxygen is thought to have supported the energy-hungry metabolisms of flying insects, helping them grow to titanic maximum sizes.

To test this theory linking oxygen with body size, paleontologists Matthew Clapham and Jered Kerr at the University of California, Santa Cruz, compiled a data set of insect wing lengths from more than 10,500 fossils collected from more than 1,000 published records. They next compared wing sizes with models of prehistoric atmospheric oxygen levels from data spanning the last 320 million years.

The researchers found that average insect wing size roughly matched atmospheric oxygen levels as they varied up and down for the first 150 million years of insect evolution.

Clapham and Kerr detailed their findings online June 4 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"Before, we only had anecdotal reports that there were giant insect fossils in the late Carboniferous and early Permian when oxygen levels were high, but no one had looked systematically at the maximal size of insects over a broad range of evolutionary time," said evolutionary physiologist Jon Harrison at Arizona State University, who did not take part in this research.

However, Clapham and Kerr found this pattern changed dramatically about 150 million years ago, with insect size shrinking despite rising oxygen levels. They note this shift coincided with the first appearance of birds in the fossil record.

They suggest that given the aerial threat posed by feathered predators, the driving force in the evolution of flying insects became the need for maneuverability, thus favoring smaller body size.

In addition, maximum insect size decreased further between 60 million and 90 million years ago. This change might be linked with how ancient birds got better at flying during this period, as they came to resemble modern birds in performance by then, Clapham said. Another factor could be the evolution of bats, or environmental collapses following the so-called K-T mass extinction that ended the age of dinosaurs about 65 million years ago. More insect fossils from this time are needed to judge which factors might be responsible.

Ancient insects contended with other aerial predators, including the flying reptiles known as pterosaurs, which appeared about 230 million years ago and perished with the K-T mass extinction. The researchers found weak evidence that insect size shrunk after pterosaurs evolved, although a 20-million-year gap in the insect fossil record and a drop in oxygen level at about the same time has made it challenging to see how much of an effect pterosaurs had.

"Although there is evidence from pterosaur teeth that some may have been insectivorous, I think they probably weren't as agile or maneuverable fliers as birds so it would make sense that they had a lesser effect on size evolution," Clapham said.

Although these findings suggested the maximum sizes that insects reached were influenced by atmospheric oxygen, future research can seek to see if average insect sizes also rose and fell with oxygen levels.

"Our results describe changes in the maximum size of the largest insects, not changes in the size of all insects," Clapham said. "Even though there were giant insects in the past, most insects have always been small like they are today."

The problem with studying if atmospheric oxygen levels influenced average insect wing size is that the wings of small insects may not always get preserved very well -- they may be too small to make enough of an impression on surrounding sediment that survives to get fossilized.

"For example, insects preserved in marine rocks are dominated by dragonflies and other powerful flying insects, which tend to be large, and lack a lot of the small things you would find in a more continental deposit," Clapham said.

Further studies can also investigate how different kinds of insects may have changed in size depending on atmospheric oxygen levels over time, Harrison said. For instance, experiments have shown that beetles are larger when raised in mildly high oxygen levels, while cockroaches are smaller and grasshoppers remain the same size, he noted.

Did you know?
Unlike many songbirds, both male and female cardinals sing, and the female often vocalizes with song from her nest.
Size relative to a tea cup:

The northern cardinal is so well loved that it has been named the official bird of no fewer than seven U.S. states. Bright red cardinals are easily identified by even casual bird watchers, and are often seen frequenting backyards and bird feeders. When foraging elsewhere the birds eat insects, seeds, grain, fruit, and sap.

Cardinals, also called "redbirds," do not migrate and have traditionally been more common in warmer climes such as the U.S. southeast. However, in recent decades they have expanded their common range north through the United States and even into Canada. This population growth may be due to an increase in winter birdfeeders and to the bird's ability to adapt to parks and suburban human habitats.

Only males sport the brilliant red plumage for which their species is known. The color is a key to mating success—the brighter the better. Females are an attractive tan/gray.

Cardinals are active songbirds and sing a variety of different melodies.

Males can be aggressive when defending their territory, and they frequently attack other males who intrude. This tendency sometimes leads cardinals to fly into glass windows, when they charge an "intruding bird" that is really their own reflection.

Cardinals are fairly social and join in flocks that may even include birds of other species. During mating season, however, groups dissolve into pairs. Male birds feed their monogamous partners as they incubate clutches of eggs—typically three per season.

For you trolls who whine we don't talk about BIRDS but always spew nothing but slime, sludge, and slop like the pigs they are. Don't burn that one cell you might have trying to read my post or understand anything about BIRDS, earthquakes, mass animal deaths, space events, or inspirational GODvines. I give you some BIRDS, besides the two on my hands, you CAN understand.....
