Hi Pics, Me and Jeff (jymsn123) had a very long discussion on Buddhism recently. He is your man if you want to know more about it? I suggested he should return as an Arabian Prince with all the benefits ( woman,woman and woman:D) but he said by the time he was ready to move the Oil would be exhausted and all the Princes would be poor. LOL cheers scally

No Scally not poor, rich in Sand ;-)

Now, Now.Jeff, I think the lady is correct, and you push this line to the limit.So you leave me no choice but to refrain from my adding any comment to Jacqui,s Gallery. :(( scally.

If you can delete your conversation with Picsonthemove as above, people would not know that here is parental guidance website. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

I would like to delete Jacqui,s, but you,ve got me in enough trouble as it is, cheers scally.

jeff_msn123 on August 31, 2009

Because you are dissolute. LOL


Harry Taggart on August 31, 2009

Because I am wise and sensible Jeff, and why have you not answered my question on the special quality of the compound H2O? Cheers scally.

jeff_msn123 on August 31, 2009

H2O is inside your body. It is common. You can find anywhere.

Cheers, Jeff

You obviously do not understand the question Jeff, and it might be a bit beyond your Knowledge so I,ll move it on a stage, as it is good to keep the old brain busy! As Lord Kelvin discovered there are 4 stages of molecular activity Solid, liquid. gaseous and Plasma, and normally the compound will expand as it goes up the stages and become less dense. Now my question is, what is so different of the stages of H2O that consequently allowed for the continuation of life on Earth? If you don,t understand the question Jeff, just forget it, because you will not get the answer,LOL cheers scally.

jeff_msn123 on August 31, 2009

Normally, density of solid is higher than its density in liquid status. But, ice float on water,i.e. ice density is lower than water density.

I like to add rocks in cold drink and eat ice-cream in summer time. Without the ice, my life cannot continue. I would die in Summer. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

Excellent and amazing composition! Wonderful shot, Scally! My greetings, Simona

Harry Taggart on August 31, 2009

Exactly correct Jeff it was like pulling teeth.:D H2o crystallises when frozen thus increasing its volume, and as you said floats, If it did like all the other elements sink in water then it would lie on the sea bed not melting in Summer, not blanketing the ocean from the cold to save marine life, and over just a few decades the Oceans would be solid ice , maybe with a wee bit slippery water in the Summer, and as ice removes salt you could get all the ice you wanted to cool your summer drinks. but they wont be fruit flavoured. LOL cheers scally.

Harry Taggart on August 31, 2009

Hi Simona, many thanks for your visit and nice comments, regards scally.

jeff_msn123 on August 31, 2009

You are wiseman. Thanks for your details reply.

If ice would be heavier than the water, a thick layer of ice would be located in the sea bed. A thin layer of sear water would be on the top. Then, the habitat of earth would be different. We would have no deep sea. The life would be different. Some creatures would be appeared in the world. It would affect the life and our living condition.

Cheers, Jeff

Harry Taggart on August 31, 2009

All animal live requires water as I have pointed out Jeff, if it did not crystallise when frozen, then liquid water would not be available in the quantities required to sustain Life. Did a Divine being design this or did life begin because of this chemical accident? Give it some thought and let me know if I should be looking to explain my earthly actions when I move on or will it a big Blank?? cheers scally.

jeff_msn123 on August 31, 2009

Water in Equator never frozen. It is the most favorable place to start a life. Once a tribe of high intelligent creatures would formed, they can conquer the natural world to live in those unfavorable places.

Cheers, Jeff

Over the Eons of years of the existence of the Earth,there has been many periods that it has been a completely frozen Snowball for a few million years. It was revive the last time by volcanic eruptions which produced lots of that, now not so friendly, Carbon dioxide, and if the vast population of Mainland China, restricted their breathing, it would allow the rest of us to use the car more often.LOL cheers scally.

Hi Auko, thank you for the visit and the Y* greatly appreciated! regards scally.

jeff_msn123 on September 2, 2009

China delivers a huge amount of cheap products to the world. Without the cheap products, your inflation rate will be extremely high. Now, your pension does not cover all of your living expense. You must find a part time job. LOL

Cheers, Jeff
