I can understand why some large organizations hang on to a long obsolete OS such as windows XP but not while a private user would not have upgraded at least to windows 7 which is superior although it is to approaching obsolesence

I don't think that the scientific community will ever consider that they have built the largest machine that is required to do all the research that they would like to do but I believe that at Cern the largest machine that it is possible to finance has already been built.
I think the women that report this are usually pretty fat and attribute the normal signs of pregnancy to other things, often they are taking birth control pills and are convinced they could not possibly be pregnant and think this is why they have no periods

Equivalence theory tells me I should not be able to distinguish between acceleration and gravity but when my tall space ship is sitting on the earth I can measure a difference in G whether my instrument is on the floor or near the ceiling.
Presumably this would not happen when I was away from the Earth and accelerating in space.

Rather what I thought but the tablets I had in mind were dandelion stocked by a reputable pharmacy

As a result of taking tablets to reduce blood pressure I suffer swollen legs and feet would diuretics help.

"What stories are those? What moral principles? What cultural values? Ghastly rubbish with talking animals? What have they got to do with culture or morality? Flat people who can slide under doors? Same question. Someone eating and drinking things and getting bigger and smaller? "
This would seem to be an allusion to the stories of Alice in wonderland and thru the looking glass, when you remember they were written by an university mathematics lecturer at a time when a lot of new ideas were coming into mathematics who would have been familiar with the halucigenic drugs used by his students they begin to make sense.
Some of the mad hatters party people are thinly disguised real people.
The picture quality produced by my DTV300 is excellent and I often watch motor racing events on my computer monitor rather than my regular TV so that I can get additional information from the internet simultaneously and push the TV to a small area of the screen.

if I use AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro Edition 5.5 to make exact copy of a HDD to make a backup when I run this drive everything appears the same but when I look into System it says its not activated.

The answers to most of the questions asked here are in the Wiki article "Quark"

Another strange thing about the Neutron decay to a Proton is the vast amount of time it takes when nuclear reaction times are normally measured in femto seconds rather as though gravity was playing a part rather than the normal nuclear forces

During the 1939/1945 there was a deal of censorship radar was supposed be a secret British invention and publications such as Wireless World could not publish details, surprisingly just after the war a great deal was published about the design and construction of atom bombs some of which quickly became secret again.
I know of course that Neutrons had been discovered three years earlier but our school textbooks were seriously out of date.

As a boy we were taught that the nucleus of an atom consisted of protons and electrons, Neutrons like radar were military secrets we did not want the Germans to know about.
After the war we were told that this was nonsense and the nucleus consisted of Protons and Neutrons, with the discovery of Neutron stars it was postulated that Electrons could be forced into Protons by gravitational pressure so the first theory was not that far out.
how does this happen Protons and Electrons and are of different classes of particle I would have thought that any union would be impossible.
Did our universe begin with only protons, anti protons, electrons an anti electrons ?.
I have the very naïve view that the neutron is a proton that somehow has an electron forced into it that only survives when it has proton companions otherwise ejects the electron after 15 minutes or so.
PS if it all began as a soup of quarks where did the electrons come from that are apparently not built from quarks but a different type of particle ?
My current computer is built from an 2014 ASUS mother board bundle but in a dusty corner of the attic I have this this old one with an 8 bit processor 64kb memory and CPM/Basic software I wondered if that could be of any help to get my hypothetical formatted computer going
On the recommendation of Chris I thought I would try Kali to which end I made a 50Gb partition on my spare drive and downloaded a compressed ISO version from the internet which came in in 7 minutes.
I thought this won't take long ,decoded to my regular loading USB dongle , selected with the BIOS but the only result was "no system".
selected the drive on which to load it clicked on setup and the answer was not compatible had another go and it eventually let me start.
There was then a procedure putting in passwords and what not then at last it asked me to make a restart and tell it which partition to put it on.
it then insisted that it did a forensic clean up of the empty partition that looks like taking about two hours .
