Beyonders: TYPES OF ADVANCED CIVILIZATIONS According to the Kardashev Scale WHAT IS THE KARDASHEV SCALE? The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement. First proposed by Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev in 1964, the scale is based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to harness and utilize. The scale is hypothetical, but it puts energy consumption in a cosmic perspective and helps us understand how advanced we may become as a civilization. TYPES OF CIVILIZATION TYP E l: A PLANETARY SOCIETY The species in a Type 1 civilization are able to harness all of their planet's energy. They have control over its natural forces such as volcanoes, weather, and even earthquakes. They are able to gather and store some of the energy from their TYPE II: AN INTERPLANETARY SOCIETY Civillizations on this level can harness the power entire star. Megastructures like Dyson Spheres may enclose a star completely to capture its energy output. Fusion energy the mechanism that powers stars) have been mastered. They have the ability to occupy several planets, and their massive 'disposable energy makes this type of civilization virtually immune to extinction. Examples: The Federation from Star Trek; the Turians from Mass Effect TYPE III: AN INTERSTELLAR SOCIETY Species in Type III civilizations become galactic travelers, able to move from star to star capturing energy and colonizing planets. At this juncture, it is organisms are now the most highly-advanced beings in society. Unevolved humans become an inferior sub-species Colonies of self-replicating robots will likely increase into the millions and spread out across the galaxy, colonizing star after star on their own. likely that cyborgs or cybernetic Example: The Borg from Star Trek; the Reapers from Mass Effect BEYOND TYPE 11I Kardashev believed a Type IV civilization was too advanced, so he didn't go beyond Type IlI on his scale. A few theorists like Michio Kaku, Robert Zubrin and Carl Sagan think otherwise and have added this scale... TYPE IV: AN INTERGALACTIC SOCIETY These civilizations are able to harness the energy content of the entire universe. Advanced races of these species could traverse the a supermassive black holes. Type IV societies would be cable of expansion of space and live inside such as changing the structure of space-time, or the deliberate slowing of entropy. Examples: Q Continuum from Star Trek; the Gallifreyans from Doctor Who. TYPE V Civilizations can control the power output of a collections of universes. Such societies could jump between multiverses that contain varied forms of matter, physics and space-time. Beings would be like gods, having the knowledge to manipulate the universe as they please. WHERE ARE WE ON THIS SCALE?. The human race is not on this scale yet. We are basically a lowly Type O. We still source our energy needs from dead plants and animals. We are still at the mercy of Earth's natural forces. It may take 100 to 200 years for us to reach Type 1.

Going through old files when suddenly...: Kleenex Facial Tissue, White kioxx 20 customer reviews List Price: $72.00 Price: $31.44 (s0.01/count) & FREE Shipping on Saonex orders over $35. Details You Save: $40.56 (56%) Coupon: Save $3.00 more Clip Coupon Details In Stock tA mother's struggle, December 8, 2013 This review is from: Kleenex Facial Tissue, wWhite (Pack of 36) (Health and Beauty) I want to start this off by thanking Kleenex for selling these in 36-packs. I've put it on subscription, and if they want to start selling a 72-pack, sign me up. I have three reasons for needing this much Kleenex, and their names are Liam, Samuel and Hank. This is how it goes in this house. First the Kleenex disappears. Then the toilet paper. Then they go for fabrics. And you don't want it to get there, unless you're ready to invest in a five gallon drum of Fabreeze. This used to be a good Christian home. But it's not about moral judgment anymore. I'm way beyond that. I'm in survival mode. If I don't supply absorbent paper products, I'm going to find my dish towels hidden in the basement, stiff as aluminum. The other day, I almost cut my hand on a sock. I am sorry to speak so frankly, but with three teenage boys, a woman has got to be practical. The funny part is, they think they're being sneaky, with their 45 minute showers and sudden need for "privacy", as if I'm going to walk in on them journaling. They slink around the house like unfixed cats, while I try to announce my location at all times. No one needs to ask me to knock anymore. I knock on the walls. I practically wear a cow bell. I'm not looking to catch anyone by surprise, believe me. I'm just trying to get through this. The other day my husband was watching me unload the groceries, and he asks me, all sweetness and light. Honey, what're you doing with all that Kleenex?" I about knocked him off his chair. Going through old files when suddenly...

Long Post: Guys mess me years, so some revenge with for 7 I get slight This is the one time I felt proud of myself in my life. Let me set the stage The revenge happened about 5 years ago. I came from a well-off family. We weren't rich but we weren't poor. Well, when I was 8 my dad died in a car accident from a truck driver who ran a red light. My mom ended up having to work as a part time escort just for a little extra cash to keep me and my sister alive Me and my little sister ended up moving schools because she got expelled for attacking a kid. She had autism and sometimes she gets mad to the point of violence At the new school, I immediately started getting bullied for being a trap. I was tormented by this one group of kids constantly for 7 years. They mocked my sister for being autistic and said that "I'm probably gonna follow in my mom's footsteps of sucking dick for money". Everyday it was non-stop torment. In my senior year of high-school, I had had enough. I enacted my revenge during the last month of school. The months prior to this I had been studying up on their schedules. Where they go after school, when they leave, when they arrive, where they live, etc. It was very stalker-y but idk fam. Then, after countless stalking and planning, I was ready First off, some minuscule things. I poked simple holes all around there water bottles so when they opened them it leaked everywhere. I unscrewed their desk legs to make their desks break even from slight pressure. I did everything I could to agitate them. Then I went onto bigger things. I'd spray coyote urine on their stuff and then filled them with animal shit. I wrecked their stuff beyond comprehension. They did worse to me throughout my life and they deserved it Now here's where it gets really, well, illegal. They all play baseball together, so I decided to hit them there. They went to baseball practice, and I followed behind them. They left the locker room and I went in there and did some practice of my own. I brought a machete and went to town. Their bags were ripped to shreds. 3 of the 7 had wood baseball bats, so I destroyed those. I also set up a trap for them, when they opened their bags a M-80 would ignite. I put a metric tonne of river clay in their car transmissions and set up beds of nails in front of their tires. I wanted them to suffer Here's where it's really illegal. I went to the main bully's house. He is an asshole. He purposefully dislocated my shoulder for no reason once. He's the one that said the thing about my following my mom's footsteps. He's pissed on me, he's assaulted me. He broke me, and I was gonna get my revenge. I waited for him to leave home and broke in. I crawled into his window and started having some fun. I disassembled his bed and computer. I moved a bunch of stuff in their house around, I turned on all the lights, all the burners, the showers, sinks, everything. I busted massive holes in their walls. I made a craigslist ad advertising free anal for a "petite gay guy" and put his address and phone number. I opened a bunch of gay porn and viruses onto his computer. I changed all their passwords, even their internet password. To top it all off, I followed a lesson from my idol, The PB. I went up to his room, took some laxatives, and coated his room in shit and piss. I wiped myself up, crawled back out and left. I left no trace of it being me in there, but I'm guessing he knew. I overheard that the utility bill was extremely high and that he couldn't sleep in his room. He started failing at a high rate, turns out he figured out it was me, attacked me and got expelled. I don't know if I was in the right to do all of what I did, but I was proud and still am Long Post

I lost a lot of brain cells reading this, proceed at your own risk...: The fight against trolls goes beyond Captain Marvel, YouTube, and Rotten lomatoes Alex McLevy Yesterday 5:04pm Filed to: FOR OUR CONSIDERATION 206 S Photo: Chuck Zlotnick (Marvel Studios) It was as predictable as a lie from Loki: Before Captain Marvel even opened, Rotten Tomatoes was getting bombarded with negative reviews from sexist dipshits trying to tank the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because the movie had the temerity to explicitly be a woman's narrative, and star Brie Larson had the audacity to suggest that it might be cool to have a slightly more diverse group of journalists covering the film. Before you could say, "What a blatant bad-faith twisting of her words and actions into some weirdo claim of anti-white-guy bias," the hordes of online chuds sprang into action Thankfully, this time Rotten Tomatoes wasn't having any of it. The site changed its policy, purging the advance reviews of the movie and instituting a new rule preventing such ahead-of-time tactics in the future. Which brings us to the obvious outcome today, the first day of Captain Marvel's wide release: A new round of trolls review-bombing the film en masse. But again, Rotten Tomatoes is responding. And it's not the only one: YouTube has also begun taking action against some of the more noxious corners of its expansive universe of videos, also to combat the creepy and politically repellent campaigns against Brie Larson, the film, and more. Unfortunately, this problem is bigger than Captain Marvel-and it's not going anywhere anytime soon I lost a lot of brain cells reading this, proceed at your own risk...
