Beautiful Earth  

Palace of Westminster at night - detail

The Thames doesn't care, Stonhenge is unmoved, history will tell.
There it is, tabloid fueled toxic democracy at work, with no majority, and the UK sends the world into financial turmoil

Welcome to Nations Online Project.

This site is about


the third planet (counted outward from its sun), it is not the largest but in fact the most dense of the eight planets in this Solar System, and it is the only one with some kind of intelligent life.

To human beeings, Earth is known as the 'World', the whole shebang of this planet, the land, oceans and the weather. For humans most things in the 'world' happen on land, exceptions are only some holiday activities: cruises, diving and surfing. For most people the world begins just outside their neighborhood, and they call it, out of habit, afield.

Until recently most of the world was inapprehensible for its inhabitants.

But now there is the internet, you don't have to leave your field anymore, now you can explore the world from there.

And No, sorry we do NOT (not yet =) have an answer if anything makes sense (wait to find out more in our next sequel, coming soon, really), but read on, and maybe You will find THE answer (forget 42, it was just a close approach, or a near miss).

Until then let's try to be nice to each other, and think about it, - you are able to read/understand this, this should give you a headstart.

By the way, while you're traveling this site and you realize that you really don't like it, please avoid to click on any advertisement, because by doing so, it would help us being online much longer.
