Seven Billion People, and Counting!

October 30, 2011 at 10:40 PM (childcare and child protection, climate studies, curious research, current news, environmental issues, historic review, legal issues, political atmosphere, social opinion, web gossip)


The world population is about to reach seven billion.  Is that a good thing, or is it a bad thing?  We are not sure, yet!

The United Nations is going to declare that the human population of Earth is at seven billion, in an October 31  announcement.  They have decided to declare it as Seven Billion Day!  The child who is born, and who is declared as the official seven billionth human being, is going to be celebrated.  I am not sure as to how it will be decided which child is number seven billion.  They likely will have scan links, or something, that allows people in hospitals to know the numbers of child births.  Something…

The U.N. is stating that the planet will thrive with seven billion people.  It mentions the need to observe nations, watching how each is adapting to the expanding population.  Also, it does say that the need to maintain plans for handling variouls levels of preparatory actions must be taken seriously.  This does include the need to improve public maintenance levels, as well as increased manners of sexual education.

The United Nations Population Fund expresses that humanity will prosper with the population expansion.  It does mention that it has reviewed how nations are adapting to changes that accompany additional people, while many are facing challenges to assist with the growth spurt.   The organization has given a report that examines how nations are dealing with extra people, while they all examine thier national population increases, their needs for public educational and growth improvements, along with how to manage needed resources.

Occupy Wall Street and S.A.P. are working with the website 7billionactions.org.  Along with The U.N., these groups are using this site to spread details about methods for all people to assist with positively maintaining Earth during the humanity increase.  The site gives information about ages of people around the world, their levels of education, and the combined socio-economic statuses of national populations.  All of this will be used for trend comparisons between nations, as each one will have varied manners of coping with more and more people!

Of course, questions are arising which include how Earth can be sustained with “a very crowded planet”!  Problems are present and are increasing, overwhelmingly due to the increase of humans.  Pollution levels are growing at unprecedented rates; deforestation is continuing and growing.  As more and more people are arriving, less and less levels of food will be available due to the excessive consumation and reduction of available, edible supplies.

An issue that is being eyed is how the general human population is aging.  Over one-third of humans will be over the age of sixty-five by 2030, specifically within the nations of the Western world.  It is being asked as to whether or not these nations can be, will be prepared to handle an excess of people, as the needed supplies could be decreasing more rapidly than anticipated.  As a significant amount of people will be senior citizens, will the rest of the younger population be able to handle providing stable and secure lives for the elders, while doing all that is necessary to maintain a functional society for everyone else?

The human population will continue to increase!  The United Nations Population Division estimates that the population will be at 10.6 billion people by 2050, and at 15 billion by 2100.  The majority of the population expansion will be in Africa and Asia.  It is anticipated that more and more of the Western nations will close their entry sites, as the nations within Africa, EuropeOceania, North America, and South America will be the areas to increase their numbers of rapidly expanding populations the most.  All and all, the groups should be an additional 1.7 billion now, with an additional 2 billion in 2060, and an additional 3.6 billion in 2100.  As the numbers of people will be increased substantially, what will happen to the rest of the planet?

I was trying to work this topic under the definition of a whoremonger, but that does not quite fit.  An actual whoremonger is a man having all of his quick dick tricks satisfied by prostitutes.  I do not mean to call any of these women whores, yet I will proceed to question their levels of sanity and self-satisfaction.  What possibly could be so good for so many women to be devoted to one man, the same man?

Ziona Chana lives in the village of Baktwang, India.  Apparently, this is the perfect location for having your back twang, front twang, and any other twang, satisfied to your ultimate levels!  Mr. Chana has been living in this Indian village with thirty-nine wives!

Yes, he has thirty-nine wives!  This abnormally excessive accompaniment includes a production of ninety-four children, thirty-three grandchildren, and fourteen daughters-in-law.  At first, my immediate response was to nudge this all toward Chana and these women being residents perhaps within a less-educated, less-civilized, part of the planet.  Yet, I had to pause for a moment to step back and to give him his props.  Thirty-nine wives?!?  This man is the shit!!!…???

Chana and his self-created tribe live within a hotel-like home that has six floors and one hundred rooms.  Apparently pleased with this lifestyle, each of the wives happily works to maintain the setting.  They regularly raise the chidren, prepare the meals, and tend to the house.  They allow Chana to work with a rotating schedule between them, as each woman has a specifically alloted amount of time that they have to spend with their excessively shared husband!

The total number of family members here amounts to one-hundred and sixty-seven people.  As he lives in an area of the world where polygamy is not a problem, Chana and family have their regular routine planned out precisely.  The males tend to the outdoor labor, where they maintain the homestead, raise their livestock, and tend to all of the farming duties.  The adult females do the cleaning and washing duties, while the wives do all of the cooking.  The family has a regular diet of potatoes and rice, where one-hundred and thirty pounds of potatoes and two-hundred pounds of rice are eaten every day!

Each of these women is glad to be married to Ziona Chana!  They happily follow along with him, as they work with their many sons, tending to the home.  The males have the specific tasks of maintaining the farm and the livestock.  Also, none of women has a problem with Chana, as he is ready to claim yet another wife, and to produce more children, at any moment!

Being a member of the so-called modern world, I find myself quick to equate this manner of action to how people of lesser educated, and not as civilized areas of society behave normally.  I find myself saying things like these people do not know any better, so that is how they view normal manners of life. There are no allegedly standard ways of carrying-on, regarding how people follow methods of marriage, or how the supposedly standard production of offspring is supposed to occur Indeed, the entire idea of what is civilized obviously has a completly different connotation!

These people are Christians, and polygamy is not a problem in The Bible.  So, Chana is not breaking any religious rules, and he likely is not viewed as a trouble maker within his land.   Chana did form and become the leader of a religious sect that is called The Chana.  Under him, this spiritual faction was created in 1942, and they have almost four hundred family groups.  The Chana believe that they soon will be the leaders of the world of Christianity!

Proper Protection Suit, or Publicity Stunt?

October 26, 2011 at 4:23 PM (animal activism, current news, environmental issues, legal issues, social opinion, web gossip)


I have been a supporter of P.E.T.A. because I believe that there needs to be more awareness and understanding about the need for the proper care that should be given to animals.  I have been a long-time advocate of animal protection, as well as for increasing the levels of attention that should be given to how animals are handled.  I do believe that it is important for all people to realize that we share Earth with millions of other species, and that we would not exist without them.

With that said, I have to stand back, taking a second look at this latest action that has been taken by P.E.T.A..  The animal rights and protection organization has filed a lawsuit against Sea World.  It’s platform is that the marine life entertainment and exhibition theme park has enslaved it’s world-famous orcas, and that this action is a violation of The 13th Amendment!

P.E.T.A. means to use this particular Constitutional amendment to try showing how Sea World is violating laws against slavery.  Now, there are issues with this action on both sides of the coin.  At first, several people are finding it offensive.  African-Americans in particular could take ill with this issue because of the notion that their basic rights are being reduced to equate with the equities of non-human animals.  Also, Sea World, which has been hailed for it’s care and protection of it’s world-famous marine life, just may be insulted because of a seemingly trumped-up allegation against them that seems to be nothing more than attention-gaining stunt for P.E.T.A..

I did not think that P.E.T.A. was in a position where it needed to do more to gain attention!  I believed that the organization was well-known for it’s efforts to protect animals, and to spread knowledge about the urgency for awareness toward animal life around the world.  I did believe that P.E.T.A. was an organization which truly has it’s focus placed on the need to save animals, and provide proper levels of education to the general population about what needs to be done to assist with all related actions.

Sea World seems to has been a long-time supporter of animal care and protection.  However, there have been long-standing legal campaigns against the theme park for how it has handled it’s animals, with focuses on orcas, along with other marine life.  Claims include that the orcas are fed improperly, often, as they are only given certain types of fish.  Living within free waters allows these marine animals to have access to any manners of edible sea life that they may choose to consume, and the Sea World marine animals are denied this basic action.  Also, their diminished manners of enclosure have lead to sensory deprivation, which reduces the animals natural abilities to function and to communicate.  Dolphins, in particular, are being said to suffer from this level of imprisonment because their natural capacities for intelligence are diminshed, and they are unable to make full use of their powers of echolocation.

P.E.T.A. is claiming to be standing in action for the protecti0n and the general welfare of the marine animals.  However, Sea World is responding, calling this blast from the animal rights organization as an excercise in theatrics, as well as a waste of funds that could be used for true efforts to protect animals.  Certainly, it is an issue that needs to be addressed, if Sea World is mishandling it’s collection of orcas, or any of it’s animals.  The theme park fervently stands by it’s efforts to protect, to rescue, and to return marine life to their natural, aqautic habitats, while it is doing all that it can do to provide excellent levels of care to the animals that it has for display.  P.E.T.A. is in a current action that could be more fanfare than favorable, yet all of the facts should be brought to light, so that the actual truth of the matter can be shown.  This needs to happen so that actual clarity can be allotted to the truth behind Sea World’s actions and P.E.T.A.’s actual intentions.

BANG-BANG Betelgeuse, Coming Soon?

October 22, 2011 at 9:18 PM (astronomy topics, curious research, current news, extraterrestrial studies, late night studies, science and technology)


All of the Apocolypse 2012 fanatics are having a blast with this topic!  The thought of it does present some levels of frustration to anyone whom is paying attention.  Yet, there does seem to be a strong level of evidence that provides relief to the idea of anything relating to this particular issue happening next year.

The class III red supergiant star, Alpha Orionis, familiarly known as Betelgeuse, is about to blow!  It is in the last stages of it’s life, and it is quickly depleting it’s inner helium fuel source.  At that point, the already enormous star will expand even further, as it’s core falls inward.  When all of the helium has depleted, and it’s expansion has reached the limit, Betelgeuse will go bang!

Some astronomical reviewers are saying that this could happen any day now!  Once it explodes, the greatest threat to anything in the way will be the shock waves from the blast.  All things within the immediate vicinity will be pulverized.  Yet, Betelgeuse is roughly between 430 and 520 light years away from us, which is supposed to be enough distance to where it’s explosive end will not affect our world.

The age of Betelgeuse has it labeled as a first generation star.  It was supposed to have been formed shortly after The Big Bang.  It is located within The Orion-Cygnus Arm, a spur of The Milky Way, just as we are situated. Some astronomers are proposing that the star was “a runaway”, having moved from it’s initial location.  Betelgeuse supposedly was located within the Orion OB1 Association, at first, and it has shifted from it’s primary position.

This star is the nearest red giant star to us, at a distance of 160 light years, or 520 parsecs.  Our Sun, along with Betelgeuse, are close to stars that include Alnilam, Alnitak, and Mintaka, the stars of Orion’s Belt, along with Bellatrix and Rigel.  Betelgeuse is within the constellation of Orion The Hunter.  It’s classification is M, which is said to be the most common type of star.

As a claification, there is no need to fear the explosion of Betelgeuse to be a part of the alleged 2012 end of all things!  Astronomy experts, those whom actually know what they are talking about, are saying that it will explode soon, which could be at any time between this hour and the next 100,000 years.   Yet, it usually does take some time for the stars to degrade into levels that take them to the points of supernova, and Betelgeuse is not displaying that absolute end-stage setting.  Not yet…

Collegiate Class Catches Stellar Explosion!

October 21, 2011 at 9:22 PM (astronomy topics, curious research, current news, extraterrestrial studies, historic review, late night studies, science and technology)


A supernova has to be such a spectacular sight!  Stars are blowing up regularly, at different areas of the galaxy, and indeed throughout the universe.  They do serve as robust reminders of how life does come to and end.  Yet, if you are going to go out with a bang, then what better way to do it?

An astronomy class at The University of Delaware had the fortune to get an image of an exploding star within M101, The Pinwheel Galaxy.  While on a study trip to their campus’ affiliated Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory, the class took advantage of the time alloted to use the telescope.  It was during this time that they observed an occurring supernova!

This supernova is the end-stage of the star PTF 11kly.  It is classified as a Type 1a supernova, meaning that it is a part of a binary star system.  Of the two stars within this system, one is a g-class / main sequence star, and the other is a white dwarf star.  This kind of supernova goes so that the white dwarf pulls energy from it’s larger partner, reaching a point when it is at a critical mass.  This leads to the star collapsing, then producing the explosion of a supernova.

The excessive levels of fusion within the core of this type of star creates the energy for the stellar blast.  As intense amounts of carbon and oxygen combine, the excessive energy becomes too great to be maintained by the star.  Thus, an explosion, a supernova, occurs!

PTF 11kly was discovered in 1781.  The French astronomer Pierre Mechain was the initial reporter of it’s existence.  It is located within our constellation-classification of Ursa Major, which contains The Big Dipper, This stellar conglomeration is some twenty-one million light years away from us.  The Type 1a supernova was first photographed August 23, 2011, at The Palomar Transient Factory (PTF), and it is getting brighter!

Ding-dong! Gadhafi’s Dead!

October 21, 2011 at 12:32 AM (current news, historic review, legal issues, political atmosphere, social opinion, web gossip)


Ding-dong!  Gadhafi’s dead!  The world can breathe easier a la one less scent of shit!  Our Earth is a safer place…..?

The long-standing terrorist figure, and self-imposed dictator of Libya, Moammar Gadhafi, was killed earlier today.  At first, he had been taken captive by Libyan rebel forces of The National Transitional Council, which was working to secure the Libyan city of Sirte.  Yet, loyalists to Gadhafi saw that the rebels were battling within the streets, and they began to attack the rebels.  When his supporters tried sneaking him by, Gadhafi got shot in his right arm!

He was able to proceed further, riding in an escape vehicle that was provided by Libya’s National Transitional Council.  This is the group working to secure that nation, while installing a new national government.  They found Gadhafi, hiding in an escape tunnel, and they were able to capture him.  Yet, rebel forces saw this vehicle driving by, with Gadhafi in it, and they shot at it.  Unable to escape successfully, the fiendishly famous dictator of Libya caught a cap in the head from rebels who saw him in the back seat!

The members of The Transitional National Council tried getting him to a hospital in the city of Misurata, but he died just before they arrived at the site.  Images taken did show a bleeding Gadhafi, who was in the vehicle, before it could get to a hospital.  Video images were taken upon his placement into a truck, which showed him deceased in the back seat, with an obvious head shot!  Apparently, Gadhafi was trying to escape, after he had been found hiding in a drainage pipe.

Now, questions are being raised as to whether or not it was legal to kill Moammar Gadhafi.  He had been the leader of Libya for forty-two years, albeit an era filled with inhumanity, internationally illegal procedures, and a flippant demeanor to the world at-large.  It was during 1973, when The United Nations passed a resolution, which authorized international attacks on Gadhafi, based on the need to protect citizens of Libya.  Many are firm in the belief that this act did legitimize his recent assassination.

Meanwhile, Libya remains in a state of civil war.  International clamor continues because many feel that this nation has been plunged into a further state of disorder without an actual leader, and with rebel forces regularly amok.  The forty-two-year authority of Gadhafi did have Libya within some strange sense of control, albeit not to the best levels of it’s citizens.  Now that the dictator has been taken out, a nation remains without any central or stable leadership, yet still the source of massive and deeply craved deposits of oil!  President Obama and many national leaders are in favor of supplying continued assistance to Libya.  Our nation, aligned with supportive governments of Europe, do mean to assist with constructing a stable situation of government within this north African nation, without abandoning it cold turkey!

Ancient Sites As Alien Landing Markers?

October 19, 2011 at 10:53 PM (astronomy topics, curious research, extraterrestrial studies, historic review, late night studies, science and technology, social opinion, web gossip)


I know that I am a little late with catching upon this topic, yet I am highly intrigued, nonetheless!  While watching an episode of Ancient Aliens, I am learning about Earth’s navels, and the axis mundi.  Listening to much of these details makes it all seem so far-fetched, at first.  Yet, there is such intricacy behind all of it that there would have to be some level of truth, some kind of validation, involved.

What we are talking about, now, is the theory of ancient sites having been constructed as coordination positions for possibly space faring vessels to use as guides and markers for the navigation of our planet.  Absurd, I know.  Or, is it?

I am fumbling, stumbling through this, while trying to come to a reasonable level of comprehension.  What I am hearing is that certain, yet specific locations around our planet were used as markers for landings and launches of ancient, space-faring vessels.  It is being suggested that many of the ancient and megalithic monuments were constructed at their precise points to be used as guidance tools for coming and going extraterrestrial travelers.

Certain locations include Machu Picchu, The Nazca Lines, The Great Pyramid of Giza, and Stonehenge.  What is being presented so boldly is that these sites initally were symbols to be viewed from above.  People viewing these monuments would have the needed knowledge to know exactly were to land and to launch their vessels that would coordinate with necessary paths to reach and to return to exact locations on and beyond our planet.  These monumental sites supposedly served as triangulation points for the landings and the launchings of spaceships that precisely coordinated with the then-necessary manners of geo-celestial navigation.

Monuments in locations like ancient Mesopotamia and Sumer allegedly contain inscriptions of an as-yet unknown language.  Some bodly suggest that this language was a manner of communication between extraterrestrial visitors.  The inscriptions were placed within these specific loactions, meaning to serve as messages for coming and going travelers upon our Earth.

The surrounding stories relate these markings as communications between ancient civilizations and their gods.  Theorists of ancient extraterrestrial to Earthling communication go onto suggest that the markings were meant to be readings for space travelers whom regularly came to and went from Earth.  An exceptionally inferior level of humanity was lead to create these fabulous markers, which were discernable only from space, at that time, as well as to leave writings that did not coincide with any known ancient texts.

It is all very interesting!  I am at first inclined to chalk this up toward another insult to humanity.  Again, humans were so damned dumb that they just could not have done all of these admittedly fabulous creations with out assistance from beyond our world!   That seems to be the underlying theme.  Yet, looking at these images, and listening to some of the theorists, does lead one to attempt examing the evidence, then trying to rationalize the exact nature behind what could be the actual truth at hand.  How did these things get completed, with such precision, and during such ancient times?

I feel it necessary to reitierate that we have no concrete evidence of communications between humanity and any civilizations from beyond our planet.  If they were here, then why did they leave?  Why did they not leave any methods to keep in contact with them?  Why are we so dead-set on proving that they were here, and why are we trying to contact them, if they seem to have no interest in continued, direct involvement with us?

Certainly, I have NOT explained this, thoroughly.  It would be suggested for all whom have interest to visit some of these websites, and to watch some of these television programs that delve into the subject.  Indeed, it all is fascinating, whether or not it actually is plausible.  If there turns out to be any truth behind any of it, then I would have to ask where they went, and when are they coming back?

We Want to Know About Life Elsewhere, Especially On Mars!

October 17, 2011 at 5:24 PM (astronomy topics, curious research, current news, extraterrestrial studies, science and technology, social opinion, web gossip)


We have been fascinated by Mars since our realization of it’s existence.  There have been centuries in which humanity has long-hoped, wished, imagined that Mars would be the sister-world to our Earth, indeed being another location for life.  Yet, even after all of the scientific evidence and advances that show how life on this planet is NOT present at this time, something will pop up in an attempt to show otherwise.

The latest effort; a YouTube posting of a so-called space station.  This past summer, an astronomer and blogger named David Martines claimed to have located a space station on Mars!  He had it labeled as Bio Station Alpha, with the claim of interactive activity occurring on our fourth world.  Martines reported that the structure is seemingly cylindrical, with measurements of more than 700 feet in length, and roughly 159 feet wide!

The overwhelming majority of space research experts deny that any type of constructed center exists on Mars.  The so-called Bio Station Alpha is an illusion created by cosmic energy that has interacted with cameras.  Cosmic rays are supposed to be common when telescopes attempt to view objects that are outside of Earth’s atmosphere. 

University of Arizona Planetary Geologist Alfred McEwen stated that the image indeed is a streak that was created by cosmic rays.  He is the lead researcher who works with The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment.  This is a telescope/camera that is situated aboard The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.  It is a $40 million tool which regulary photographs images of the red planet for review and study.

It is likely that this so-called image of a station on Mars is fueled by humanity’s deep desire to find life elsewhere in the universe.  It truly does seem that, out of the tremendous vastness that we recognize to exist beyond Earth, surely someone, something is out there that is alive, and possibly (hopefully) intelligent.  Multitudes of speculations and theories have been presented, yet nothing can be solidified until anything, anyone, living outside of our planet actually is confirmed!

Trapped In A Maze of Maize!?!

October 15, 2011 at 9:39 PM (childcare and child protection, current news, social opinion, web gossip)


It was funny at first, before realizing that these people really felt in danger!  I suppose that it could have been the response of anyone whom gets lost in the shuffle of things.  People needed help, and the appropriate authorities were contacted.

This past Wednesday, October 12, was when a Massachussetts family opted to participate in some local Halloween activities.  Their city of Salem, Massachussetts regularly has festivities for residents and visitors to enjoy.  One of these pleasures for the population to enjoy includes a seven-acre corn maze (a maize maze…) that is meant for general entertainment.  Yet, this one truly lost all notions of fun that might have been involved!

A little after 6:30 p.m., a call was made to the 911 service of Danvers, Massachussetts.  A lady told the operator that she and her family were lost, trapped, within an area of The Connors Farm.  Albeit not yet twilight, their surroundings were completely dark.  The corn stalks were towering, and this family could not find their way out!

The family, including a mother, a father, a five-year-old, and a three-week-old baby, had gone to the farm to have Halloween fun with the children.  They entered this maze, which stretched for seven acres, and included nine-feet-tall corn stalks.  While inside of the maze, they began to realize that they had gotten lost, and they did not believe that they could get out before dark.  After having reached a state of panic, the mother used her cell phone to call 9-1-1!

She told the operator that they meant to have fun, but it turned out to be a nightmare (Happy Halloween)Danvers Police were dispatched to the farm, and a rescue effort began.  Officers and a rescue canine entered the field to find the family.  After a total of five minutes, all of them were located.  They were all of twenty-five feet from the maze exit!

The maze is complete with signs and maps inside of it, for visitors whom may happen to get lost inside.  Farm-owner Bob Connors stated that his farm maze was constructed to be puzzling, yet it is filled with maps and signs for people to read, in the event that they do become unable to locate the exit. 

Mr. Bob Connors reported that he regularly uses the farm for holiday and Halloween celebratory activities.  This season, he has the maze shaped in the forms of The Headless Horseman, with the phrases “Danvers, MA” and “Salem Village” carved into it.  Connors said that his maze usually takes up to an hour for explorers to wander through, successfully.    

Connors did sympathize with the family, realizing that they had a young child with them.  Yet, he does not plan to take the maze down, as he anticipates a surge in visitation because of this incident.  “I have a funny feeling it’s going to be a real busy season”, he told reporters!

Rogue Planets Out There, and One Was Ours?

October 14, 2011 at 9:48 PM (astronomy topics, curious research, current news, extraterrestrial studies, late night studies, science and technology, web gossip)


This one particular theory surrounding the creation of our solar system is interesting.  It poses some theories that may seem far out, yet logic could allow them to be plausible.  Particularly, I am not surprised about suggestions of Jupiter’s culpability in the matter!

Yes; a big ol’ bully!  We will return to that issue.  Some theories are emerging, which suggest that our solar system once was the home to an extra planet.  Actually, the ideas about the structure of the early solar system say that many additional worlds were here, in addition to the eight (nine…) that we claim today.  One particular theory proposes the idea of a fifth gas giant having been located within The Sun’s gravitational realm.

The generally accepted ideas surrounding the formation of the early solar system state that the planets were packed within a seemingly constricted bond.  As the forces of gravity eventually dominated, each of the planets moved toward their currently recognized locations.  However, some current research suggests that there were more bodies within the solar system than could be sustained by the gravitational powers of The Sun and the major planets. 

One particular theory is suggesting that our planets formed in areas that all were closer to The Sun.   The inner planets were able to remain, more or less, within stable positions that were practically near to our star.  Yet, the gas giants, being composed of lighter elements, were able to escape the inner regions of the solar system, floating out toward their current locations.  This theory is saying that more gas giants were present, at first, and that the forces of gravity eventually won, with any lesser planets being dismissed from the bunch.

This idea is stating that our solar system’s gas giant worlds, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, likely formed in locations that were much closer to our Sun.  Scientists are saying that all of the matter needed to form planets, especially those of immense sizes, would not have existed at locations distant from the central solar system.  This matter would have been necessary to create the large worlds, and it would have been located nearer to the central formation region of the solar system.  Thus, all of the matter needed to create Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, should have been nearer to The Sun, as should have been these worlds.

A proposed theory states that, as the planets were settling into their current locations, an alleged fifth gas giant existed within the solar system.  Yet, it could not reach a stable orbital position, and it was accosted by the gravitational forces of the other gas giants.  It seems that Jupiter in particular was the lead bully, exerting it’s excessive force within the general solar system, and forcing all that could not hang to be ejected!

So went gas giant five!  Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune were able to shift into their current positions, gravitationally bound to The Sun and the solar system’s other worlds.  This alleged fifth giant was pushed out, something akin to a rubber ball stuck between a series of bricks.  The gravity being exerted by all of the other planets was too much for this fifth gas giant to handle, and it was forced out!

If this is/was the case, then it is possible that this rejected world could still be out there.  Perhaps it is floating alone in space, a wondering world, a rogue planet, as some have suggested.  This idea is possible for several planets that may be amok throughout the galaxy, not gravitationally linked to any other planets, or to any host stars.  It was this past May when Japanese astronomers announced that they had located a lone-wolf world that was floating in space, not linked to a star, or to any other planets!

Some of these suppositions suggest that several lone wanderers, homeless planets, are rampant throughout our galaxy.  However, it is unlikely that any of them are terrestrial planets, similar to Earth.  They likely are gas giants, light, and capable of floating without being immediately bound to a stronger gravitiational force.  Amazingly, they even could have moons orbiting them!  These moons could be able to sustain heat from the forces of gravity given off by their host worlds, which could allow these moons possibly to develop the conditions necessary for supporting life!
