This must be someone's pet peeve. “Anti” means “opposite,” as in “Antimatter”.
Why do they call it “Antipasto” salad? They SERVE it with pasta!
They call it that because... “pasto” comes from the Latin “to feed” ...and “ante” comes from the Latin “before.” And “anti” and “ante” SOUND the same, right?
Is there an Italian who CARES what they mean?
Oscar Meyer has ... Um... this news will wait a little.
My 6-2-18 blog (“BLOOIE”) discussed some of the characteristics of an Icelandic, and of a Hawaiian, volcano. NOW I find out...
Some volcanoes create their own lightning!
It happens that... in 2015, Hurricane Patricia was beating the stuffing out of the west coast of Mexico.
This was HISTORIC intensity.
At the PEAK of the intensity, scientists sent a plane into the eyewall. The plane's instruments picked up 184 “counts” of ionizing radiation... very, very, very close together, similar to what they'd see in a lightning flash. EXCEPT...that THIS was a beam of positrons.
Positrons are the ANTIMATTER equivalent of electrons.
Scientists would expect them, therefore, to shoot into space.
They shot to earth instead. And along the way, they created the MASSIVE explosion we've all been TOLD would occur When Matter Meets Antimatter....
….although NOT, repeat NOT, the chain reaction that would KEEP exploding all the positive matter in the known universe [that they taught us, let us say, "people of a certain age* ...would destroy all atoms... everywhere].
This LESS-than-obliterating annihilation STILL would have been super-loud and super-amazing... but Hurricane Patricia was SOOOOO incredibly violent... that the Destruction Itself
was outshone by the functional hurricane-ness of Patricia, Herself!
Patricia entered Mexico at her highest strength NW of Manzanillo, passed NW of Guadalajara, and petered out before entering the southern tip of Texas.
The antimatter event would have happened just as it passed Manzanillo.
“Patricia grew from a tropical storm to a Category 5 hurricane in just 24 hours—a near-record pace. On October 23, the hurricane achieved its record peak intensity with maximum sustained winds of 215 mph (345 km/h).[nb 1][nb 2] This made it the most intense tropical cyclone on record in the Western Hemisphere, and the strongest globally in terms of 1-minute maximum sustained winds.
“Late on October 23, dramatic weakening ensued and Patricia made landfall near Cuixmala, Jalisco, with winds of 150 mph (240 km/h). This made it the strongest landfalling hurricane on record along the Pacific coast of Mexico. Patricia continued to weaken extremely quickly, faster than it had intensified, as it interacted with the mountainous terrain of Mexico. Within 24 hours of moving ashore, Patricia weakened into a tropical depression and dissipated soon thereafter, late on October 24.”
(Interesting: even a something FULL of energy gets winded (heh heh, winded) when it has to climb a mountain range.)
This link has a video you might find interesting.
Hard to tell, in the catastrophic damage, if the horrendous destruction was MORE horrendous in any one area NW of Manzanillo. Reflecting the impact of the antimatter beam. It would APPEAR that it burned itself out in the higher altitudes of the eye.
Beautiful, bland, life-giving, ordinary... WATER.... in your glass!!
--Has a secret!!
Some of the molecules of water in that glass have one big oxygen atom with two hydrogen atoms like mouse ears on the top, spinning in the same direction...which is ORTHO water...annnnnd some of them have the one big oxygen atom with two hydrogen atoms spinning in OPPOSITE directions. Which is PARA water.
Water molecules in general have a positive charge on one side, and a negative charge on the other, which result in an over-all NEUTRAL charge.
Para water reacts 23% faster. In an electrostatic field.
Is that good or bad?
This is all on the molecular level. While they act like different species... although the two kinds of molecule can trade a proton if they feel like it.
Mother Nature, you do like to fool around!
And there's nothing you can do about upping your percentage of para water. No pure para sample had been produced as of 09-05-14.
This is all quantum stuff...
Right now you are thinking, WHAT POSSIBLE DIFFERENCE CAN THIS MAKE TO ME, IN MY LIFE, IN THE REAL WORLD, OUTSIDE THE LABORATORY, ETC., ETC..?
Well...go into the kitchen and make some Jello.
On some other day, make some more of the same flavor of Jello.
Some other day, same thing.
There! Do you see? Do you see?? How come SOME Jello comes out just right... and some too watery... and some not watery enough?
Because some water is different from other water! Water in the same measuring cup! Every glass you pour is all mixed together, and water's transparent, so you can't fish out the molecules you don't want!
To whom do we voice our outrage? Shall we continue to suffer in silence?
Current information on the human body's water composition:
Up to 60 percent of the human body is water; the brain is composed of 70 percent water, and the lungs are nearly 90 percent water. About 83 percent of our blood is water, which helps digest our food, transport waste, and control body temperature.
Clearly, some people are made of more para water and some of more ortho water. And some people are more percent water, period, than other people.
This is why Cindy Crawford looks like Cindy Crawford, and I look like I'm not even made of the same basic materials!
All along...from the get-go...I've been done in ...on the molecular level !
*Basically, me, and people congregated around my age group.
Here is some more information about antimatter. From what it says about bananas, I'm surprised my grocer's fruit section doesn't fizz like a basket of wet Pop Rocks.
AND IN CONCLUSION... I HOPE YOU CAN WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THIS ONE... Oscar Meyer has debuted an ice cream sandwich that is...wait for it...brace yourself... hot dog flavored. Spicy Dijon Mustard gelato and candied hot dog pieces. The brand announced the news in response to that other, um, creative launch, the French's Mustard pint. I am not making this up.
