Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I like lots of music, and some(overall across a specific genre) I like less than others, but within each genre, I've found something I like just about as good as what I'd call my more favorite types of music. Be it country, rock, metal, black metal, electronic, jazz or whatever.
There's something good in all of it, once you find that one you like.
What is black metal music?

He is still under the illusion that we are supposed bow to his declarations of what is art, and what ain't. He could be just one of those damned critics. They go to school and are taught it should be this way, and then go out and tell everyone else what they are supposed to like.
Art is what registers with people, not with the scholars and pros. It's a communication thingy.
Hey ,you can see how those radical two percenters are.

That's a huge question.

These guys are now considered more progressive metal, nevertheless...at one time they were black/death.


Not black metal, but some math metal(incredible playing, multiple time signatures, 8 strings etc...).

Try giving a listen(I recommend start to finish for both). It isn't for everyone.

Ok I get the picture but never heard the term.
I like some like that, but call it dark or progressive , sort of satanic I love Hysterica and Crucified Barbra.

But they aren't as progressive as the ones you posted.
I like women bands, they tun my eyes on as well as my ears :).

High frequency EM.
BTW, the E and the M exist together. Can't really get one without the other.
You didn't leave your head in there long enough.
Since your "knowledge" is based upon what you read, whether you understand it or not.

Yes, magnetic fields affect chemical actions.
EM, it is all in how you put the spin on things,
>.< You just provided evidence that you're a moron. You should stop while you have a small amount of dignity left. The magnets are not what heats things up, they are used to produce the energy waves, electromagnetic energy specifically, that cause the atoms to become excited. This is why you cannot use metal in the microwave, ironically, because electromagnetic waves are attracted to metallic minerals. So all you did was prove that I know what I'm talking about and you're just reading headlines and running with them.

We separate out rubbish into a couple of categories. The council collects it, recycles about 80% of it and landfills the rest.

The cost of landfill to the council is increasing and so the council is motivated to get better at recycling.

Other countries on the continent do a better job of recycling than the UK, it's a work in progress.

I have a question for you about your country. What does the UK do about garbage? I mean you are a small country. What do you guys do with all that trash? How much of a problem is garbage for your country?
Here in the US we have plenty of land and therefore we have landfills.

That's been pretty much my experience, too.

That genre classifying confuses the hell out of me. It is all music, but so called experts have to classify something as such and such to make themselves look like experts and music gurus. I'm kind of sensitized and reactive to them because of the pretentiousness and peer pressure to buy what they say is cool, going back a long time. An effect of too few outlets of mass media and something to sell. Induced fads. The payola scandal is an example. Oh, the era of the Italian teen idol created by the Mafia. Barf.

If only there was a way to harness the power of Dave's wrong we could be energy independent and put the Saudi's out of business.

"The magnets are not what heats things up, they are used to produce the energy waves, electromagnetic energy specifically, that cause the atoms to become excited."

You will probably read that and think you made sense.

Remove the channeling of magnetism provided by those magnets, and what do you get? Cold coffee.

Magnetism and electricity start on the atomic scale. They add up if channeled properly. Biological cells are made of atoms. It's the EM force that gives them the heebie jeebies so they can move and do things. Excess or deficient charge starts an exchange of EM energy. Motion in a magnetic field induces a charge and movement called electricity. Electricity induces a magnetic field.

Take some iron tablets, then use those speaker magnets.

Just to warm it up a tad. I hate really hot coffee.

However, I do take care to hold it a moment, and say a few magic numbers of Polymath's to shoo away his virtual particles. They can upset my tummy.
