Stripey

Not sure how interesting this will be for anyone, but well... Anyway, I moved here a few months ago now, and the first job was to start on turning the massive crappy yard (of the kind usually seen on Animal Cops Houston containing malnourished pit bull terriers) into something civilised with grass a...

Re: Skull points to a more complex human evolution in Africa

Prof Stringer thinks that ancient humans did not die away once they had given rise to modern humans. Why does it takes experts so long to fall over the obvious? The attempts to fit every skeletal piece into a straight line evolution has become embarrassing in recent years. Roy. My theory in this ca...

Re: Einstein debunked?

Take your point, Dig. It's difficult to tell quite where to draw the line between theoretical but probable and the wackier stuff, except I'm told that with quantum theory, or at least with some of the bizarre stuff like particles being in two places at once, the sums add up and somehow it can be tes...

Re: Einstein debunked?

Well, I believe it has been known for some time that the speed of light may not be a constant (experiments where photons have been slowed down)... I don't see why poor old Einstein has to be tarnished with the dogma brush simply because people working nearly a hundred years later appear to have expa...

This just conjures images for me of Julia Bradbury or one of those other interchangeable morons jumping around in a cagoule and asking "so Dave, what exactly is an owl?"

Well, the sooner they find the genuine article the better. Then they can finally put some serious resources into the search for Santa's workshop.

Re: Homo Erectus - The Galloping Gourmet

Cooking kills parasites, bacteria and fungal infections Dan. Which reminds me of the first time my wife and I went to Jamaica in the mid 80-s. It was one of those All-Inclusive Resorts and they had a great spread in a pavillion on the beach every breakfast and lunch...and "Tea Time" for the Brits. ...

Re: Glacier

Put me down for some rain too, please. There are now cracks in the garden containing dinosaurs and Doug McClure. The humidity isn't so bad here in SA, although in Houston it's beyond belief - like the surface of Venus. Having said that, this morning when I went out to water the lawn I'm trying to en...

Re: This just in

And a lot of people who know nothing of orbital dynamics trying to find a comet with an orbital period so that it will hit in 2012, They might do just as well to take a closer look at the Mayan calendar rather than just taking it for granted that whatever drug-addled shaved chimp came up with that ...

Kim Kardashian,
Isn't she attacking Deep Space Nine?

Roy.
That rings a bell but I wouldn't like to say for sure. She's on the list with Paris Hilton, Anna Nicole Thing, and all those other people about whom I have no idea why I should have heard of them.
