When we have a question about something that comes into our minds, we can often find the answers just by searching using Google etc.

 

Lets see what answers we can get without an internet search.

 

First question.

 

Why on the same stretch of coastline, can you find one beach that is mostly sandy and within a few miles find one that is mostly pebbles ? E.g parts of Cornwall, Dorset.

 

I don't know the answer, but my guess is that it is to do with underwater geology and general terrain. E.g if you have lots of rocks under the water near a beach, then it will be mostly sand that is deposited on a beach. If you have few rocks under the water so no natural barrier, then the force of the water will deposit larger debris including pebbles onto a beach.

We could do with some help from you.

Anglesey - it's only 20 miles square and surrounded by the most spectacular coastline in the U.K.

If you have few rocks under the water so no natural barrier, then the force of the water will deposit larger debris including pebbles onto a beach.

 

Beaches,so strange at times.I do not know the answer to the question but have seen some strange things.

As i am on pebbled beaches and sandy beaches nearly everyday you often have wondered why.

I have seen pebbled beaches maybe 2 metres of pebbles vanish and turn to a sandy beach overnight usually after a storm.

Seen perhaps the level of sand drop 1 metre or more overnight.Only a few days later to be back to normal depths

 

You look around and say what the hell,where have all the pebbles gone.Here one day gone the next and no sign of them.

Come back a few days later and hey presto they are back as if nothing has happened.

Sometimes you see them stacked up in huge depths other times as if they have been raked,so smoothed out.Then vanish as if gone on vacation.Some of them huge.

So i will say the force of the tides and which way the currents are going at a particular time has a big effect especially during a storm.

Maybe whether a beach incline is steep or pretty flat maybe has something to do with it.

As you say,general terrain

 

However a few miles away as you say i have seen a flat sandy beach that never changes,no pebbles ever turn up no matter what the wind,storm,currents are doing.

So i guess as really i have not got a clue.

But strange that beaches so close together can be so different.

Also why can i walk for miles searching for Driftwood and not find any yet half a mile away there is a veritable forest waiting to be picked up.

Even sometimes only hundreds of metres apart,no wood,plenty of wood,day after day the same places.

A bit morbid question I guess and sorry if it is but you hear all these people saying how wonderful Heaven is, is there such a place and if it is as wonderful as they say then how come no one has come back to tell us!

 

:oops:

There had better be such a place as i am pinning my hopes on going there sooner or later.

The reason no one has come back to tell us is because they are all having a whale of a time and do not want any of us to arrive earlier than our time.If possible.

As you say no one has come back to complain as far as i know.

I mean some of us if they kept saying how wonderful it is,some of us might be tempted to take a early flight.:-)

You usually see little signs around and about of them letting you know they are ok though.

That is the people who have already arrived at the pearly gates.

White feathers,sometimes things move,lights flickering,tunes and many more things.

Listen and sometimes the departed sometimes talk to you although we do not accept it.We think who is that talking to me,thinking it is yourself.It is your friends and family checking in on you.

Advising you.

I know TO, when my granddaughter passed I found feathers etc and knew it was her telling me she was all right, I only get them now and then now but I sometimes " feel" her presence

How come also there are so many different types of sand and colours!

 

I have seen black sand and heard there is red, blue etc, and the textures are all different as some you can not make sand castles with!

Black is volcanic, caused by sedement/lava from volcanoes.

 

I will leave it to a geologist to explain the rest.

 

Personally, i believe that the Earth was created, as was the universe we are in. I don't believe everything has naturally evolved over millions of years. Some of it has of course, but there are too many questions unanswered to believe that the diverse life on Earth was created from the same bacteria, that was on Earth after the 'big bang'.

Okay, here's a question for you.

 

How is it that Rocks can move, seemingly on their own. Some up to 700lb in weight and on a completely flat surface.

I would guess general movement of the top surface of the planet Earth. It is a living moving organic entity, affected by gravity, thermal movement etc.

 

You really need a scientist to answer. I am hoping for a major shift of the Earth and a repositing of the UK, so it is roughly in the same place as Tenerife is now. To have warm sunny weather all year would be great. I would not miss the seasons.

I as some know tell a tale or two at times.

I once went to live in a cave in Tenerife to clear my head.Some may think it did not work,i wonder myself at times.

But the strange thing is that after getting up each morning to the warm sunshine, the days spent wandering around my cove,exploring the Banana Plantations, swimming and living wild and wandering round the resorts.

 

The evenings and nights spent watching dolphins shooting stars,fishermen catching flying fish i missed our climate.And was happy to get off the Plane and walk in the drizzle of Manchester.

A photo of the rough area,i have other photos.

Would you like to live there.

But yes i could settle for the warmth here in the UK as i get older and get a few aches and pains.

Here is an on topic question.

 

Is it possible for a person to cause a mini tornado on the west coast of Africa, that turns into a hurricane on the other side of the Atlantic in the US ?

 

I was saw a science programme where they showed the possibility of a small tornado being made, that could turn into a hurricane thousands of miles away. Was this just an exaggerated way of showing how small a hurricane can start out ?

The hurricane issue is an interesting one and certainly links in to some ancient thinking about the beat of a butterfly's wings causing a storm. I suppose with my limited understanding of energy it's very much a case of getting out what you put in and the gentle push of a breeze is just that. Otherwise we'd be Ina constant state of chaos as every action, rather than creating an equal and opposite reaction, would grow in strength and violence exponentially.

Ah! I actually know the answer to this one (and hopefully a BSc Homs in Geography/Geology gets me on the first rung of scientists).

 

So, if you're referring to the rocks that seems to wander around the valley of death in America on the dry lake bed the answer is surprisingly dull. It's a combination of weather conditions, on occasion despite being a desert the valley suffers heavy icing. This turns the ground surface in to a very slippery mud and the rocks which just sit on the surface are moved by the wind.

 

Go to google and check it out!

For many years, nobody knew what was going on and had the conspiracy theorists all over it. In fact, you are correct. Simple ice and light winds and a rock can move quite a long way overnight.

Give yourself a pat on the head.

:)

or played by some kind of 'G'.

similar to a kaleidescope theory.

or is it the 'Force' (nature)

IMO

You will find the answer to your quest in a series entitled coast to coast, all types of beaches are discussed from size to colour including a piece on singing sands an experience I have yet to enjoy.

 

Note no reference to Google :) except just then/

This theory would explain the many quirky things which happen to us all in life, i.e thinking about someone then they ring or meet them in the street( maybe telepathy involved)

 

We use the word fate but maybe it is by design

why do we have have vehicles that can do in excess of 100 Miles and hour plus but the speed limit is 70?

The only place legally you can do more then that is on private land or a race course!

 

Why do they not just make vehicles that stay within the speed limit? surely it would cut down accidents?
