1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Yes but that's the whole point, have they come? At the moment it's pure speculation and the figment of people's imaginations ,usually those with, how shall we say, a rather vivid imagination.;)

    In 1970s I hunted in fields very close to location of the Rendlesham Forest Incident, December 1980. Shooting by moonlight, without thermal image gear, necessitated sitting in hedgerow or straw bale hide waiting for target to come within range. Blundering around edge of field hoping to stalk something you could not see, only ensured anything that might resemble meat on table departed early.
    Part of the joy was not just the shooting, but with eyes accustom to night vision and all senses on alert, the experience differed from normal to the extent that were you to believe there were tigers in the forest, then the rustle of small animals in the undergrowth would be enough to convince of one approaching.
    The brain interprets the image from the eye on the basis of past experience and preconceived expectation, with memory and suggestibility adding to the confusion.
    Being an honest level headed witness to events does not always ensure correct interpretation, as many criminal court cases have demonstrated.

    But E=MC squared works is correct otherwise they would neve have been able to invent/develop the atomic bomb as i believe it works on that principle.

    I found this recently.
    1) The cosmological constant

    When he was crafting his theory of gravity, general relativity, Einstein needed a bit of a fudge factor. Everyone back then assumed, based on the information available, that the universe was static, unchanging place, but his equations kept disagreeing. To make them fit the data, he added the factor, which he named the cosmological constant, into the equations. When he learned, in subsequent decades, that the universe is actually expanding, he supposedly exclaimed “Then away with the cosmological constant!” He famously considered it his biggest blunder.

    But even Einstein’s mistakes are informative. When astronomers learned, to their astonishment, that the rate of the universe’s expansion was increasing — that galaxies were growing apart faster over time — they called the mysterious force responsible dark energy. And the cosmological constant, as a fudge factor that changes how spacetime interacts with energy, is still a leading contender.

    2) Gravitational waves

    Two years ago, scientists announced they had directly detected gravitational waves, literal ripples in the fabric of spacetime. It was a huge validation of Einstein’s work, which had predicted their existence almost exactly 100 years prior. The find also heralded a new era of astronomy, as researchers now have a new way to study the universe. But for a time, Einstein himself doubted they actually existed. In the 1930s, two decades after unveiling general relativity, he was set to publish a paper stating the ripples didn’t exist after all. He was eventually persuaded of their existence again, and of course now we know for a fact they exist, having actually seen them.

    3) Implications of his theories

    Many of Einstein’s insights into the universe were the result of his clever thought experiments — he literally revolutionized physics just by thinking hard about it. So he was clearly capable of coming up with big ideas and following them through. And yet, many times in his life, he resisted the weirder implications of his work.

    One of the pioneers of quantum physics, the unpredictable science of the smallest particles, he never cared for the idea that the universe was, fundamentally, random. “. does not play dice with the universe,” he once said. (The physicist Niels Bohr supposedly responded, “Einstein, stop telling . what to do.”)

    Einstein also didn’t care for black holes, a natural consequence of his general relativity, since the rules of physics goes crazy around the singularities at the center of the holes. And while he did believe in another consequence of relativity — that massive objects would warp spacetime enough to act as a kind of lens, redirecting the light from distant sources — he didn’t think we could ever see it. “Of course, there is no hope of observing this phenomenon directly,” he wrote in the abstract of the Science paper introducing gravitational lensing. Wrong.

    4) Minor mistakes

    Lest we believe Einstein’s genius at least precluded him from messing up smaller things (maybe he was more of a details guy?), the evidence again suggests otherwise. From errors in the various proofs of E = mc2 to failing to consider seminal experiments, and even just basic mathematical mistakes, Einstein had his share of slipups. No one was more aware of this than the man himself. As he told his gravitational waves collaborator, ““You don’t need to be so careful … There are incorrect papers under my name too.”

    And by the way it was me who discovered the first black hole ................ in the bottom of my wallet when i got married :D

    I have a very vivid imagination. i have to have with some of the crapppp im ask to build and sort ...sometimes its a good sense of humour you need and a good stealth mode so they can't see you laughing at what they have come up with :D .
    I learnt something many years ago .

    Problem with Gravity, is we can't really prove it exists, or at least explain it in a way that makes everything fit. Gravity is still only a theory. Even Einsteins theory of relativity which incorporates gravity has big holes in it that can't be explained. Things such as why do moons revolve around planets, but are not drawn to the sun, which by far has the strongest gravitational pull. They should be orbiting the sun and not planets according to this theory. Secondly, if the moons gravity is what causes the tides, why do we have 2 high tides per day, one of which is always on the far side of the planet to the moon. According to theory, we should only have one and it should follow the moon around the planet. Lots of things make no sense when it comes to gravity, which means we don't actually know what it is.

    I would say Gravity is a counter action to the centrifugal force of the planets spinning in a sphere. ie the atmosphere which creates a counter active pressure holding everything on the surface .

    kids on a roundabout get thrown off. due to it spinning . the world spins .
    now the wall of death .bikes held to the wall .
    now ..... one ive always wanted to have a play with . a wall of death that spins . then put a aeroplane in it connected to a post. and see if it will take off without a engine . so its just the air of the wall of death spinning round .
    so the wall of death is the atmosphere creating pressure by spinning that the plains wings can use to gain lift .
    i think that make sense . :D
