Mike,

Have you ever seen the movie "The Man Who Would Be King"? Sean Connery and Michael Caine play two British adventures who decide to take over a small country north of Afganistain. It's a GREAT movie and somewhat fitting for this discussion. Basically, what would happen if "modern" people end up among less civilized(for lack of a better term) people. In the movie Connery ends up pretending to be a god which works out well for quite a while, then becomes very, very bad.

-Blast

For clarity before I respond could you please define what you mean by "space" in this statement?

Welcome to ETS jeff! we like to wander around discussing wherever the thread leads. :-)
The only persons on this site who'd advice I'd bet my life on is Doug Ritter. Look at his advice for definitive facts.
The forums are for chat.

I've come to the conclusion that there's no such thing as domesticated felines, just ones that have figured out humans can be a food source in multiple ways. eek

I'm thinking that Jeannette and Blast would probably have died soon after traveling, for the simple reason that they got so involved in how they got to wherever they are, that they forgot to drink water and expired.

The temporal physics discussion has been moved to private message. For those other than Blast and myself, who find temporal physics fascinating, sorry about that.

Not really. During this fascinating discussion, I did manage to pry myself from the computer long enough for a cup of tea.

I can't recall where I read I but I think they killed people who bathed because they thought the person taking a bath was trying to put a hex/curse on them?
