Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Prepper Refuses To Eat Iguana For TV

Submitted by on September 7, 2012 – 1:24 pmNo Comment

There’s no doubting that Doomsday Preppers is a popular and useful TV series. With what might prove to be perfect timing it is surely inspiring thousands of people to prepare for the worst. For that, we should be thankful.

For the preppers who appear on the show it means five minutes of fame. But if you volunteer for this TV show, what would you sacrifice?

1. Control over your portrayal. The film crew might record hours of you providing sage advice, but show instead ten seconds of you firing a machine gun – and then repeat it a few times. Or perhaps highlight the dumbest thing you said all day. Ultimately they wish to entertain, even if it is at your expense.

2. Anonymity. Friends, family and acquaintances know you, even if your real name doesn’t appear on the TV. And hey, you are on TV! You will tell people to watch it. You will only remain anonymous to the people who don’t matter and don’t care.

3. Security. People don’t need the GPS coordinates of your safe spot. Because the people who know you, and their friends, and friends of friends could easily find out. And if your safe spot is where you live, then the cat is out of the bag. Buy 50x more supplies for all the others who will turn up during a crisis.

Or you could eat an iguana – despite not being desperately hungry. That’s what they asked of Florida prepper Chris Petrovich, and that was when he decided not to appear on Doomsday Preppers:

I will not kill an animal if I don’t need to kill it……….certainly not for a conservation minded network like National Geographic (that would be bad press), and certainly not for food when I don’t need to. That is probably why your show doesn’t play well with most preppers I have met (in the hundreds)….

…That was the beginning of the end. They also wanted him to take a machine gun out to the firing range and blast away at nothing. When the producers kept asking for access to Petrovich’s camera-shy family, he backed out of the show. Plus, he says, the National Geographic Channel is a little bit left-wing for his tastes — and by appearing on the show, he’d lose credibility as a leader in the prepper community.

“Any prepper who’s going to look at this is going to look at me as an asshole,” he says. When he sent out an email to the local Meetup group asking if anyone else wanted to appear, he says, he got zero “yes” and about 20 “hell no” replies.
