Re: oh dear, what a shame.

There was a time when I was all for the death penalty for the most serious offenders. However in my dotage, I now believe that removing evil people from society and lifetime incarceration is the best sentence. Letting them sit inside 4 walls for 23 hours out of 24 for the rest of their lives with he...

Re: Things you have recently learnt

Even more thought provoking for me is that I was born less than 20 years after WW2. Me too by a couple of years. I'm guessing the country was still scraping itself back together when I came along. In fact rationing had only ended 3 years earlier... And now we have one in three children obese by the...

Re: BREXIT - Bercow & Swinson Meet Their EU Bosses to Receive New Orders

Ah the myth of forecasts being lies. A forecast is what it is. A forecast. However, with one, you can measure actual performance vs it. If you exceed it, you know things are going well, if you fall short, you have early notice that expectations are not being met and can respond. Organisations that ...

Tyrannosaurus Rex lived closer in time to now than to when Stegosaurus lived. By about 10 million years.

The Andromeda galaxy is so incomprehensively enormous that if it was visible to the naked eye its appearance would be 3 times bigger than the moon.

Park at the NCP in Richmond. The rail/tube station is right by it.

Re: British Wildlife Decline

It is also a case of councils playing the big developers too - we'll let you build there just so long as you build us these shops/develop this road/build a school etc Section 106 Agreements / Planning Obligations aren't really playing the developer, it's just a way of ensuring the impact of a devel...

Re: British Wildlife Decline

They were extinct in the UK. They're immigrant kites! I do marvel at seeing a red kite. However they've already become a pest in parts of the country so I hear. This thread not just about 'evil developers', they're just one ingredient in the endangerment of UK wildlife. Farming is another. Industri...

British Wildlife Decline

This topic saddens me greatly, especially when I drive round the south of England and see it being paved over by the likes of Barratts, TW, Redrow et all. I know that the latest reports state that intensive farming is the main culprit, but most of the new housing estates are on sold off farmland. Ju...

China's 70th Anniversary Celebration. Or as I see it a show of military strength to send the West pi55ing out straight. Although some of the missile launchers looked a bit like film extra stuff.

Re: Seemingly trivial things that intrigue you

Isn't it expanding at the speed of light? [Like Jesus - decided some 400 years after his death that he was the true son of god in a marginal vote in his favour.] The modern replacement for creation is... creation. Creation of the Universe from an epicenter. To support this, clusters of stars in the...

Re: Things you have recently learnt

How to truly appreciate the difference between a million and a billion other than an extra three zeros.
Convert to seconds.

Million = 11.6 days

Billion = 11574 days or 31.7 years!!

Re: BREXIT - Back to the Tartarian Crag

Corbyn wants to leave but doesn't want to be at the helm when we do, that's his problem. Corbyn's desire to leave the EU is a square I just can't circle. The EU, a pseudo Duma in Brussels that is run by unelected bureaucrats who are totally unaccountable and think they know what's best for the prol...
