Our Semmingly Nearby Moon

Posted February 10th, 2018 at 02:18 PM by Radrook

The moon seems nearby when viewed on a clear night. Yet at its closest it is 225,623 miles away and 252,088 miles at its farthest giving it an average distance of 238,855 miles. So the difference between being farthest and nearest is 13,233 miles or approx a little more than four times the distance from the USA East Coast to its West coast.

Using Kids as props to Get Back into Prison?

Posted February 8th, 2018 at 06:01 AM by Radrook

Some released prisoners are simply unable to refrain from resuming their former criminal lifestyle because of some mental aberration. Others can’t help but seek revenge against those deemed to have been involved in the arrest. Others because of extremely low education can’t find a job that will provide them with the style of life they were once accustomed to. But there is a another reason that...
