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

I saw this quote from Carl Sagan in the comments of a Guardian article and thought that it was particularly apposite in the current circumstances. It hardly needs pointing out that the 'charlatans'...

I'm struggling to think of what she's actually achieved since she became P.M. and seriously would welcome reminders!

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

Don't be carried away by the 'nice' middle class accent of a vicar's daughter, Mark!

She was a dire Home secretary and stepped in when Cameron resigned, miscalculated a general election and spent...

After this evening's massive defeat for her Brexit bill, it looks like May will soon have time to catch up with her wheatfield running backlog! ;)

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

It seems to me that if global warming isn't caused by human activity, there isn't any harm in behaving if it is and increasing the use or renewable energy sources. Conversely, if global warming is...

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

Age, family ties, lack of language skills, inertia - y'know, the usual!

My daughters may upsticks, but they're settled in good professions that should be relatively immune from the horrors of post...

Re: Holding up the wall. ;-)

Interesting to see the Chinese tourists (I'm guessing that they're not Japanese). From what I've seen of programmes about China, they don't need to travel as they have the most spectacular scenery in...

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

Where I lived in my teens the local library had a set of encyclopedias 'American Encyclopedia of Chemical Engineering' (or something like that). It had lots of - errm - shall we say interesting...

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

Potassium permanganate and glycerine is good, as it potassium chlorate and sulphuric acid (which I believe was used as a 'promethium' in the 'horns' on mines)!

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

I saw on the television this evening that if May loses her vote, she would be making a statement.

Does anyone, like me, think that it will be her resignation?

Re: Lens recommendation

The Four Thirds 35mm f3.5 macro lens is good and can be had for under 100. You need to factor in a 4/3rds to M43 converter though.

Also the Four Thirds 50mm f2 is superb - when it was tested by...

Hmm - 'duty' is an alien concept to the likes of Boris Johnson, who considers himself to be a latter day Churchill!
