Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

On another forum someone pointed out that the referendum was for a simple in or out. Remainers knew exactly what they wanted which was the status quo, whereas leavers were unable to specify exactly...

Re: Escape from the Heatwave

I have a friend who lives an hour or so north of Sydney and he is sweltering right now with temperatures in the 40s. I might suggest he joins you - it's 40s here too, but Fahrenheit :). That's one...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

It's called "confirmation bias (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias)" I think.

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

To answer the question - no, I don't think it is fundamentally, though there may well be a lot of people with agendas trying to prove otherwise. Oil companies for example. The problem with all these...

Thanks. He may well be scientifically trained but that doesn't qualify him to pose as an "expert" on a field which he has not specialised. I was trained in engineering, but in electronics so I...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Dave, would you like to summarise what he says as I don't have time to listen to him drone on for over half an hour. There will always be climate change deniers just as there's still a Flat Earth...

Re: Lens recommendation

I have the 30mm Olympus macro lens, I haven't used it much but it seems pretty good. The working distance is short though so not so good for bugs etc - at least not live ones!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

That's wine strength, not beer! *chr

I think the strongest beer I've tasted was a BrewDog one at around 11%, it wasn't bad but I'm not a fan of gassy beers. One of the most memorable beers I ever...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I still haven't forgiven Greed King for the loss of Rayment's, and Ruddles County just tastes like Abbott to me now.

I visited East Berlin before the Wall came down and it was indeed pretty grim....

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I already have a box of firelighters to get my stove going. There is a warning on the package that the contents are highly flammable. Who'd have thought it? :D.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

As with the UK, it's generally the smaller brewers that brew the best beers. The international conglomerates like Carlsberg, InBev etc tend to make bland beers that offend nobody but that don't...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I think if we exit with no deal the pound will tank. If we end up staying in, it should rise. I have a Creation Mastercard which works very well overseas, they even refund some of the currency...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The referendum was advisory. The honour and safety (and the good, if you like) of the country should still come first.

Likewise Jim. Too many older people still metaphorically fighting WW2 I'm afraid. This is our children's future we're talking about. Still, there may be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel:

Re: Guess the iso.

Over-exposure could also be interpreted as a reduction of ISO, surely? I'm fairly happy with the results I get from ISO3200 and 6400 on my E-M5i. I'd rather have a bit of noise than not get the shot...
