China, following the Russia & the U.S.A., was only the 3rd country in the World to conduct a spacewalk from one of their own spacecrafts. French, Japanese, Australian & Swedish had done so before the Chinese — but either from the Russian MIR space station or from U.S. space shuttles.

The Chinese spacewalk came a full 43-years after the very first spacewalk, by Russian Alexey Leonov on March 18, 1965.

The first American spacewalk was that same year, 77-days later.

Did The Russians Hack The “America’s Got Talent 2017” Voting For Ukrainian “Light Balance”?

by Anura Guruge

Do NOT get me wrong, in any way. I like the Ukrainian  high-tech “Light Balance” very much. I even gave them a plug, here, a few weeks ago.

They are pretty amazing and their show is truly mesmerizing. You have to hand it to them. Very clever. Very creative. Very high-tech.

I was, however, amazed that they beat-out the U.S. Air Force Academy “In the Stairwell”. Yes, they are NOT as different as “Light Balance” — but for love of apple pie & motherhood, we are talking fresh-faced, all American kids from the U.S. Air Force Academy!

I am a professional cynic, so the thought DID cross my mind as to whether the voting was hacked. Would not have been too difficult to do.

OK. So, that is off my chest.

Now back to “Light Balance”. I am NOT sure that an High Tech at such as this should be allowed to compete against people! With their act I am not sure how much is computer generated. Some of their moves could all be ANIMATION with their suit lights off. I just don’t think it is an apples-to-apples competition, people vs. computers. Think about it.

Well at least they SHOULD learn that Al Gore lied — Global Warming is a man made myth.

I have said it before: Al Gore should come and shovel some snow with me to learn that there is no Global Warming.

Just damn cold weather, lot of snow and thick ice.

Happy New Year.
