While we’re on the subject, I’d just like to point to the Tatra T87 as one of the most fantastic cars ever. built at a time when British cars looked like: The tale of crossing the US in one. The Czechs were fantastic engineers in the 1930s, half the British weapons in WWII were designed …

So what to do about American foreign policy? Here’s one option: Boycott America. Working off the principle that if the US gubbermint is controlled by evil US corporations, who are all evil and corporaty, then its simple, just hurt the corporations till they promise to behave. The hate mail they get is great: “Here’s my …

Woohoo! Anita won “So You Think You Can Dance”. Go her. But the entire concept has so many possible variations. So I think there should be a version called “So You Think You Can Science”. You’d get a whole bunch of scientists, the young hot ones of course, and each week, they’d have to try …

As notnotabouthim is toddling off to foreign parts, I’d just like to celebrate him by posting some random crap. Firstly, a great big robot of rock-chewing doom: Its big enough to be visible by satellite. Ideas that have caught my eye, don’t necesarily agree but am considering: China shows that market economies work better with …

New architect

We have a new architect. We’re still keeping the old one, but this one has both the wooly jumpers and a fantastic accent. She’s verry, verry Scottish. Her website makes her sound like a hippy, but she’s damn capable.

Totally forgotten who I said I’d post this for, but maps of how the UK gets affected by sea level rise: and others, with cities marked. We’re not going to see 70m rise for hundreds of years, if ever. But six metres is looking like a remote possiblity in our lifetimes, and we can’t rule …

Last session of the course tonight, and whilst doing doubles trapeze I managed to remove the trousers from Valerie and more from Debs. In front of everyone. Whoops. However, I learnt that I can still hang upside down from a trapeze with my eyes closed and laughing my guts out.
