Super Earths, massive Earth Like planets that are usually much larger than Earth. Kepler 22b happens to fall under that category. Being 2.4 times larger than Earth, surely makes it a potential goal for our Space program.
According to NASA, at least 48 planets have been found in the Habitable Zone of star systems. This means that 48 planets so far have the potential to sustain life. This is a huge leap for Science, History, and Astronomy.
Just a decade or so ago, many people were convinced that Humans are the highest intelligent life forms in the Universe. Heck, they even went as far as saying that we were the only planet in the Universe that could even sustain life. That we were alone.
Personally, I blame the Government and the Religious leaders for hiding so many secrets. This however, isn’t about them. There are many blogs and forums dedicated to that.
I’m speaking more about the potential, the future. I wrote a post once describing how many stars were in the night sky based on the Deep Space images that Hubble took. If you do the math, there are Sextillion stars in the visible Universe, according to Hubble. That’s a huge number.
In fact, Scientist now believe that there are actually 300 Sextillion stars out there. Basically, take Sextillion and multiply that by 300 and you have an even more massive number. So, my calculation is minute in the possibilities.
Back to Kepler 22b. If Kepler 22b is 2.4 times larger than the Earth and there are 300 Sextillion stars out there. Then it makes you wonder how many Earth Like planets are out there. Something else that has crossed my mind is, how much larger do Earth Like planets actually get? Better yet, how many stars are there out there really? Especially if our Universe is infinite.
We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface. It’s clear that we won’t be headed to Kepler 22b any time soon. Not unless we have a Stargate that will allow us to travel there instantly.
What does this mean for our future? Well, if we don’t blow each other up in the coming wars, we just might actually find a planet exactly like Earth in many ways. These Earth Like planets should be a driving force for our Great Nations to work together for a common goal.
The very existence of Humanity depends on our technological growth. That is if we want to sustain the current lifestyles that we have. If we want to preserve our future, our cultures, then we must push forward.
Whether or not you’re a believer in Alien Life Forms, Kepler 22b is a step in the right direction to proving that life elsewhere exist. I for one have always been a firm believer in Extraterrestrial Life. It’s only a matter of time before we make a new leap into Space. Perhaps, some of us might actually live to see that happen.
Now, I’m probably going to get some flaming comments and heated debates about this topic, but I wanted to make it clear how I felt about Abortion. The short answer? I’m against it. Here’s why.
Some people may not know this, but there are options for Pregnant women. The last thing we need them doing is giving up on life completely. Pregnancy centers and adoption centers are there for them when they need it.
Let me ask you a couple of questions. Is it legal for someone to murder a child? Is it legal for someone to murder a child that is only 6 months into pregnancy? Chances are, you answered no to both those questions. Then why should it be legal for someone to commit murder on any child?
Well, what about rape victims? Shouldn’t they have the option to abort? Can I abort your brain right now for asking that question? I’m sure we can put it to good use for Scientific study to find out why some people become stupid.
Let’s get a few things straight. If you abort a child, you might be aborting the next great scientist with the cure for aids. You might be aborting the next great person who’ll be able to bring this world closer to world peace. You might be aborting the next great doctor who discovers a way to double the life expectancy of mankind.
Women that abort their children can attest that it crosses their minds all the time. It’s another pain that they have to deal with on a daily basis. So, if a woman was raped, then why should she be “Forced” to go through another pain that could scar her for life?
It’s much better for a person to go through life and become a stronger person knowing that they gave their child the best chance they could give them. Not to mention easier. Abortion should not be an option. Period.
Abortion in my opinion is an atrocious act towards humanity. Any sane mother wouldn’t kill their children, so why should we be allowed to do that legally? Which side of the fence are you going to be on when it boils down to it? Life or Death?

Many people often make mistakes. Yet, sometimes we don’t know why. I recently had to make a change in my Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight post. It was a simple mistake too that anyone can make.
Down at the bottom, when I started talking about “they’re tampering with our health,” I had out instead of our. Simple mistake right?
What about when we make mistakes that are big mistakes, the ones that make us feel a little down?
Today, I finished my workout routine. Well, the Cardiovascular part of it anyway. I found out that I actually had an error in my last calculation on Calories burned. Yesterday, I had thought that I burned about 363 calories, when it was no where near.
Here’s the formula that I used to calculate those Calories. men: calories = [(0.6309 x heart rate) + (0.2017 x age) — (0.09036 x weight) — 55.0969] x time / 4.184.

Gotten from Livestrong.com
See the part where it says — 55.0969]? Yeah, I missed that completely in my calculation. Somehow, someway, I just totally left it out. So, while figuring out the new calculation, I was slightly disappointed.
Can you imagine how disappointing it is to find out that you’re not burning 300+ Calories, but instead you’re burning more like 186. And that’s after increasing your time on the Elliptical to push yourself? Sags head and walks away………
Ok, maybe not quite yet. Unless I’m doing the formula wrong, there’s a big mistake there, but what can we learn from mistakes?
For starters, we can’t dwell on them. We have to move on and learn from them. We have to be more careful next time, so that we won’t make the same mistake again. Life is too short to be filled with fouls.
It also helps to not be tired when you’re writing a blog post. You’re more likely to catch those mistakes. So make sure you get a good nights sleep.
So, what! if. I; make/misteaks….Get over it. That’s all we can do right? Get over it and move on. Learn from them and not bash ourselves too much.
What do you learn from mistakes? Do you think images help blog post?
Americans are said to be the most over weight, but many have a hard time figuring out why. Why is it that many Americans are starting to be overweight and in worse health than the previous generation? I think I have the answer.
Many Americans nowadays aren’t getting enough exercise. That’s right, something as simple as exercise can have a big impact on our daily lives. In the movie WALL-E, the people roamed around on hover chairs. Who needs a wheel chair right? Especially when the machine will do all the work for you.
Is that the kind of life style we want? To be subjects who are limited in our mobility based on some machine? Right now many kids are experiencing this because of Parents not letting their kids play in the park. Instead, they’ll let them play Video Games all day and do nothing.
Now, before you go bashing Video games and start blaming the games themselves, maybe you should take a closer look a parenting. I play Video Games myself, but that doesnt’ mean that Nerds can’t be fit. I in fact have started a Cardio Routine, which will eventually turn into running, which in turn will turn into a Marathon.
I have goals, kids nowadays, don’t. That’s partly because parents let their kids spend too much time playing Video Games as apposed to….well, playing.
Many restaurants have started (in the last decade) increasing portion sizes. Now, they even go as far as encourage you to get a large or (in some cases) super-size. In this case, bigger isn’t always better. Tell me something.
Do you feel better now that you’re bigger? Again, bigger isn’t always better. My parents often times make two meals out of one meal when they go out to eat. Why? Many of these meals are filled with Calories. Many of them over 1,000 calories. That’s half a days Calories for most.
Still think Bigger is Better?
Quality of Food
Our food quality has reduced in the last 10-20 years drastically. Farmers are basically killing the land that they farm one with all the chemicals that they spray on plants. Therefore, we’re forced to look for alternatives: plants that are bug resistant, plants that yield more, and even plants that grow better in certain climates.
When you start tampering with plants: spraying chemicals, changing DNA strands, making them more volatile, something has to give. So, where do we suffer? In Nutritional Value. I can’t stress this enough….
Life is too precious to tamper with. By tampering with those plants, they’re tampering with our health. Empty calories adds to our over all weight. Really. What else is our body going to use useless calories for?
So, my question for you today is, did this inspire you? If so, what are your plans for taking action?
Life in general is all about Initiative. Do you have the drive necessary to make it happen? Are you living life the way you want to?
I’ve started writing on my novel again. That takes initiative. If you have a story you want to write, you need to plan it out and get started writing. Don’t wait too long, you’ll never get it done. Trust me, I know.
I’ve had the idea to write this novel for several years now. I could have been a published Author by now if I had that Initiative. Hopefully, it won’t be that far off, now that I’ve started the initial stage.
There’s another area in my life that needs work though. Exercise. I just lack the drive that I need to make it all happen.
I often find my self laughing (on the inside) at people who drive around the parking lot looking for a parking space. I can park out of the way at the end of the isle and walk into the store, before most people can park their car. Seriously? Yet, at the same time, I lack the drive to get motivated for exercise?
So, here’s what I’m going to try. I’m going to make a poster board. It’s going to be filled with things I want, people I want to be like, women I’d like to date, etc. Why? This is to hopefully give me the motivation I need to actually be someone. To get up and go.
I’m also going to be starting a community of my own. I’m going to be looking for certain individuals (who are already well on their way) to help jump start the community. If you’d like to be a part of this community, let me know. It will probably be forum based.
Keep plucking away at life and it will reward you.
Most of you know that I play Minecraft. Lately, I’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to producing Youtube videos though. I’m going to have to work on that.
Tomorrow, I’ll be away from the computer for about a day and a half. So, I’ll have no access to the web for that time frame.
As soon as I get back, I’ll be uploading more minecraft videos and more vlog videos as well. I’ll also start on the Budget Software and Games reviews that I said I was going to do.
I’ve been working on my novel, plucking at it. The planning stages, that’s what you do with it. Pluck at it. The only way to get things done, is one step at a time. This, happens to be small steps.
I’ve got to start taking more action and get stuff done. I can’t create a community without creating stuff for you guys to read.
This classic song makes me want to dance. One of the best all time classics, Heaven is a place on Earth, is an all round great song. Just listen to the lyrics. You’ll be glad you did. Life is too short not to enjoy. Get rid of the drama and bring on the music. This Earth is what you make it. Life is what you make it. So, make it heaven.
You might be wondering what the heck Kona’s Korner is? It’s nothing more than another Gamer site. Well, not exactly just another gaming site.
His reviews range from Orcs Must Die to Modern Warfare.
The site itself is very well designed. A clean look, easy on the eyes and well laid out.

Guest Appearance On 2ND Opinion Podcast
If you’re looking for a great gaming site/blog then this might be the one for you. Being always updated and very opinionated, makes for a great over all site. Who knows, you just might be inspired.
I booted up Minecraft today to make a new episode. The series starts off on the wrong foot and things appear to be going slow. What will the next episode bring us? My goal in this series is to find the cove, which will be in the next episode, and build a port of some sort. Be it a Pirates port or what ever I can think of. Life is too short to not enjoy. Minecraft is one of my enjoyments. Even if it doesn’t start off so good, it’s still a fun pass time.
