Your Questions About How To Discover New Things

Linda asks…

What should I call my horror story for English?

the story is about four teenagers who go into a haunted house, discover things about the house, have strange things happen to them, get stalked by a little girl who died in the house, and everytime they look in the mirror nothing appears just a plain blank canvas but then the dead girl appears in it.

Mirrors of a Dead Girl? Heh, first one that came to my mind. Itll probably get ur classmates attention though

Thomas asks…

Are we doing anything to explore space at exteme distances which would take generations to see the answers?

Has NASA thought of sending satalites out in a line one after the other to bounce back signals quickly to earth from the far reaches of space.
I know that it would take centries to reach out to exteme distances but if we start doing this now then a couple of hundred years from now they may reach distances that were never imagined and humans may discover things that they never would have been able to if not for this.

The only method which has potential for a return message is radio. It travels at the speed of light and is a lot cheaper than space ships, which would take tens of thousands of years to get to their destinations. We did put a plaque on Pioneer and sent an LP record with Voyager, but no one expects we will ever hear from someone who finds them, (like in the first Star Trek movie.)

We sent a very powerful message into space from the huge radio dish in Aricebo, in 1974. This was widely publicized. Here is a link about it.


My problem with that message is that it was sent to a globular cluster 25,000 light years away. So it will take 25,000 years for the message to get there and the stars in that cluster are less likely to have life-bearing worlds than if we aimed a signal along a spiral arm.

If there have been attempts to send similar messages to nearby stars, then these are not as widely publicized. Such messages could be received by a civilization and we could get a return message in one lifetime if it came from one of the closer stars. I think somebody sent a message to Tau Ceti, but I’m not sure. That’s 11 light years away and very much like our sun.

Carol asks…

Why do Liberals think inconvenient or unwanted babies would be better off dead?

There are a lot of people that were not wanted that grew up to be productive happy people.

Its not like you live your entire lifespan with your mother. Well unless you are a Liberal.

Who is to say that some of those babies they advocate flushing down the drain wouldn’t have discovered a cure for cancer? Or discovered things beyond our imagination?

New Niche Finder answers:

I don’t. I’ve always found that argument foolish.

But I also don’t think the Federal Government should EVER force a girl to give birth against her will.

You can persuade them toward what you think is right, but not like that.

Chris asks…

Do you get annoyed when people older than you act as though its their job to teach you a lesson?

I’m all for sharing and pouring wisdom but I have to admit – I prefer to discover things in my own time and do things my own way.
I am often in a position though when I have to listen to people older than me tell me what they think of me and how I should act. Annoying is an understatement.

New Niche Finder answers:

Yes, I’m well into my thirties and both my mother and my mother-in-law are often pushing their “wisdom” on me. I have tried to learn from them, not their wisdom, but not to do to my children what these two old women do to me.

And I should add that both women have lots of good qualities, otherwise I would not be around them enough for them to share their wisdom with me.

Steven asks…

What is a describing word for a person who likes to discover things?

I’m trying to think, I need one word that would convey that. I keep getting adventurism or something in it but that doesn’t seem right. So I need a describing word for a person who likes to discover things. or possibly a person who likes adventure.

New Niche Finder answers:

Maybe one of these can work..
