    Our earth have a huge electromagnetic shild around our planet, which protect our planet of all the killer gama rays of the sun .Most likely mankind never leave this prison planet , because we still can not get through this huge electromagnetic shild .Who made it wanted we stay here and never escape .În my opinion Nasa never landed on the surface of the moon at all, their old moon fotage was a big fake maked somewhere in a hidden studio ,they tricked bilions of naive people with their fake moon landing .Moreover their moon fotage was ridiculouse a lot ,when they put their US flag on the surface of the moon,then the wind current blew it,like on the moon could exist some atmosphere.Milions of people's around the world are agree Nasa faked their moon mission it never took place , I have no doubs for sfmyspelling.

I thought gravity grew weaker as we get higher, would the bird encounter more difficulties as it get higher nonetheless? (excluding temperature difficulties etc...this is just about gravity)

    For those in the other Theme, this Video has been recommended to you for a specific Reason! There is a hidden Message behind this! The Truth is, is that the Earth is in Fact a galactic Prison Planet! The Frequencies in the Music from Today are here to programm our Dna, to make us primitive! The Music from today got this frequency "440Hz" and that is what makes us being imprisoned on this Planet. Why you ask? Well, the other Alien Races like the Reptilians are here since we came here and they enslaved us with their and out technology from today. They used their higher Technology to block the connection to the higher realms and to bring us to a Point to make us getting earthly Attachments, you have to remove them. Think about it, all these people who got killed, did something good wich was a Sign of "Danger", if you know what I mean. It means those who were able to help the Humanity wake up could pose an Error. This whole System we know is here to manipulate us, destroy us and the Planet. These Things have gotten out of Control like these ones. Music from today has become negative, try 432Hz or different Frequencies. Drugs, for a good Reason, to destroy us. Sweets, to block the Energy system, they are just like a Drug, if you don't get it, you'll go crazy. Try birken sugar, it's more healthier. The News, for Implants and manipulation, for Fear, Hate and negative emotions. Doctors with their Pills and Stuff, the Chemicals. Movies and Videos for negative Emotions and for manifesting negative Things. Cars, Ships, Boats, Busses, Planes ..., for the so called "fresh air". The Planes got Chemtrails, what are they? Have you seen the Strips in the Air? They posses Heavy Metal and Chemicals, we brave in. The Plastic in the Water in other Lands or more like on the whole Planet should be gone. We Humans have made about 6 Billion metric tones Plastic per Year! Fish, Animals eat Pastic and so do we. Find Solutions to these Things and your Life will become better but don't make your self crazy! And for those who played Fortnite, have you seen the Black Hole Event and the Numbers that has been shown to us? Search for those Numbers on NLcameras and put Hz right behind them, like for example "15Hz". All other Answers will come to you, be patient. Oh yeah, "The hidden Teachings of Jesus". *The Year 2032 will arrive soon*

      @Average Man my apologies for not taking NLcameras comments seriously, and not using commas properly, or accurate wording. Using “not usin comma” is a sorry excuse of an insult. So, basically your saying that I am arrogant for assuming I posses intellect??? If I am a kid that’s some pretty strong wording coming outa a lil guys mouth, sorry, I mean a big guys mouth. I must admit you do posses intellect, beyond that of a child’s mind, most kids be like “dis dud be do S teir sciontisht.” I don’t mean to be rude, hence the fact that you clearly posses intellect, but since I see I’m dealing with an intellectual, no arrogant person who thinks they maybe posses any intellectual property, could insult you to a degree that you feel insulted. Anyway I really like arguing with intellectuals. This was like an email... oh btw you may b an intellectual but it looks like you copied that from somewhere, ik that was a bad joke but I didn’t want to leave you feeling too bad with your sad comedic reference.
