A newly published study suggests that our galaxy has been dotted by alien civilizations that are probably already dead.

The study was based on an expanded version of the famous Drake 1961 Equation, which determined the odds of extraterrestrial intelligence existing in our galaxy. The study was carried out by researchers from Santiago High School, California Institute of Technology and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The study determined intelligent life may have emerged in the milky was about 8 billion years after it was formed. The study also looked at various factors that may have lead to a habitable environment for life, such as the prevalence of sun-like stars harbouring Earth-like planets. 

While carrying out the study, they created a model of the Milky Way evolution over time with the factors favouring intelligent life in mind. The study determined that intelligent life may have emerged in our galaxy about 8 billion years after it was formed, which is about 13,000 light-years from the galactic centre. 

This is about 25,000 light-years from the galactic centre in comparison to earth. Human civilization arose on the planet’s surface about 13.5 billion years after the galaxy was formed.

Most of the other civilizations existing in the galaxy today are likely young due to the probability that intelligent life is likely to eradicate itself in the long run. The researchers found that the galaxy’s civilization may have peaked more than 5 billion years ago, but they most likely self-annihilated.

The study reads, “While no evidence explicitly suggests that intelligent life will eventually annihilate themselves, we cannot a priori preclude the possibility of self-annihilation. As early as 1961, Hoerner (1961) suggests that the progress of science and technology will inevitably lead to complete destruction 11 and biological degeneration, similar to the proposal by Sagan and Shklovskii (1966). This is further supported by many previous studies arguing that self-annihilation of humans is highly possible via various scenarios (e.g., Nick, 2002; Webb, 2011), including but not limited to war, climate change (Billings, 2018), and the development of biotechnology (Sotos, 2019).”

The paper which is still awaiting peer review has been submitted to a journal for publication.

How to Make a Watermelon Bong

Published

on

Using bongs gets a little basic sometimes especially when you are used to it. Are you looking for intriguing new ways to enjoy smoking weed that is affordable and fun? Look no further. There are so many alternative ways of making your weed smoking ingenious and fun. You can easily craft your way to creating your own smoking accessories, like the majestic watermelon bong.

The watermelon bong is popular because it’s easy to change it into a bong without using too much energy or creativity and the results are plain astonishing. But first, you have to understand what you need to create by having a look at a real bong

Parts of a Watermelon Bong

A typical bong has a tube/ chamber, where you inhale the smoke from, a base that holds the water that cools it down, a carburetor that enhances airflow, the bowl where you place your weed, and the down stem which links the bowl and the base. Understanding this gives you an idea of what you should do and need when it comes to the creation of a watermelon bong.

Watermelon Bong

What You Need to Make a Watermelon Bong

The following are some of the things you will need for turning a watermelon into a bong:

  • A watermelon of any size
  • 1 large Carrot
  • 1 drill
  • A one 1-inch drill bit
  • 1 narrow drill bit
  • 1 Carrot
  • A large knife

The watermelon will act as the bowl/ base and the drill will help you create the necessary holes needed for a real watermelon bong. The one 1 -inch drill bit will help you clear any holes that may get blockages.

Instructions : How to Make a Watermelon Bong

Step 1: Drill Three Holes into the Watermelon

Make sure that the hole for the mouth is opposite the hole where you will place your bowl. The third hole will make way for the carburetor. You can find the place for the third hole by simply resting your mouth to any of the two holes and looking at where your fingers comfortably lie. Just make sure it accessible with either the middle finger or the pointer finger.

Step 2: Connect the Chambers

This allows the hole on the bowl to find its way through to the mouthpiece. Do this by drilling the holes as deep as you can. In case you experience any blockages with the way you can use any tube-shaped device to help you curve your way.

Step 3: Check the Airflow

After connecting the bowl to the mouthpiece, it will serve you right to check whether the two are connected and if the airflow is as should be.

Step 4:Make a Hole on the Large Carrot

Using the drill bit you can do this. The hole should be made directly down the middle of the large carrot.

Step 5: Carve a Bowl

Reddit

Turn the carrot to its flat side and carve a bowl that should be enough to uncover the first tunnel you made. After this, you can inhale again through the mouthpiece and ensure that the airflow is satisfactory.

Step 6: Place the Carrot on the Carburetor Hole

do this by pushing the small end of the carrot in first and look to make sure that it’s a good fit. Let it stick to the angle it was drilled.

How to Use the Bong

It gets simpler using a watermelon bong since all that is left is placing the herb in the bong and lighting it. Grind the Cannabis flowers and make sure that the Carrot bowl is near. Then you can light up the dry herb and enjoy your moment.

Alex Foster, from Colorado Springs, takes a toke on a hollowed-out watermelon loaded with marijuana blunts on 420 in Boulder as friends and complete strangers provide combustion. Amendment 64, passed yesterday, legalizes the individual possession of an ounce of marijuana.

Final Word

Making a watermelon bong is not as hard as you would probably think it is ad it is more fun. Even better is that you can use the watermelon to give you its taste. It’s preferable that the watermelon you use is fresh and make sure it not overly ripe since it might end up messing the whole project. I would like to see the watermelon bong you created. Hopefully, the guide was successful.

Conor McGregor loses against Dustin Poirier!

The highly anticipated match between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier finally took place at UFC 257 at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

McGregor, a former two division champion, was up against his old rival, but sadly he lost again to Conor.

The two had their first round at UFC 178 over six years ago, where McGregor defeated Poirier. Since their first round, McGregor went on to become the biggest star in the UFC.

Poirier proved that to be true in the rematch on Fight Island when he survived early blitzes from McGregor to score a shocking upset victory by second-round knockout.

McGregor came out fast, flashing his trademark speed and power, and even dipping back into the same shoulder strikes that led to the knockout of Donald Cerrone in his January 2020 return to the Octagon.

Through it all, Poirier remained steady, working over McGregor with leg kicks, eventually taking the base of the Irish superstar before blitzing him with punches, dropping him to the canvas and scoring the knockout at the 2:32 mark.

The Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer became the first fighter to hold world titles simultaneously in two divisions.

Poirier, on the other hand, claimed the UFC interim lightweight title. He went on to win matches against Eddie Alvarez, Max Holloway, Dan Hooker, and Justin Gaethje.

Congratulations Dustin Poirer on his win!
