  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    #1095 - Well, this I'd attempted to explain by using the terms "time" and "duration" separately. "Time" is the number of local seconds that pass for any of the locations Sol, Centauri and "Alice" (where Alice is presumed to be...

    I already specified that my understanding is that duration passes at the same rate for all 3 locations. You're not giving any better argument why this is not and cannot be so than "because you say so"....

    Well, I've just measured it, and it's 700m from KingsX to Learning Tree, and about half that from the entrance to Euston that's nearest the escalator to/from the Tube platforms. I don't "know London", but I've been on courses at...

    #1025 Bullet 2 - No explanation I've ever seen even attempts to explain why we can't take shortcuts relative to light! For comparison, Charlie and I are both in Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, and wish to go to Shandwick Place, him...

    I only even mentioned it because you and Charlie had already opened the subject. In case you weren't clear, I don't have to log in every time I want to post, but will have to browse to another side and...

    #961 - Look, the only thing I was questioning was "nuclear powerplants are a long way from populated areas". #973 Para 4 - Are you channeling Pterry? #976 - "2 1856 Studebaker Commanders" - Lucky bugler! :-) #985 - Yes...

    Actually, Torness is only about 10km from Dunbar, and Hunterston is 3.6km from Seamill. That's still too far for piping waste heat, but nastily close in th event of a nuclear spill. Since my main point was about safety rather...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Granted it's too far to pipe waste heat, but it's still close enough to put you potentially in an accident fallout plume, which is what I was thinking of....

    "Perfect weather" is variable. at 08:00 GMT today we'd about 50mph wind and hail: Now, 8 hours later the wind has dropped, and it's sunny and quite pleasant out....

    Damian, Whether it's what/how you meant the text or not, it reads as "insulation is better than generating capacity". My point is that insulation does not always address power consumption (although I agree that, where possible, better insulation will reduce...

    How much thermal insulation will my (hypothetical) electric car need to drive from Dumbarton to London in a day? (a trip I've actually done several times with stuff for a whole bunch of people)......

    #895 - You sure? Several of my mates in the South insist on referring to the tune as "Danny Boy" rather than as the "London Derriere" (IMO Danny Boy refers to the libretto). #897 - It took me about 10s...

    I'm in the US, where nobody has shot at anyone for being American in living memory, Well, except for all the high school mass shootings, where I think we cas safely say that both shooter and victims were typically US...

    #823 - For LOLs, take note that some people have claimed this means that BA112 was flying at over M1.0!! #843 - The fact that you live in a semi-desert does not make pine trees "funny". #853 Point 1 -...

    This sounds a lot like Hunted ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunted_(2015_TV_series) ) and also a USian version of same. (based on trailers, not watching the show)...

    And, of course, Lerwick is just a Shetland Bus ride from Stavanger... :-) As for a future head of state, I was also wondering about Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, particularly given her association with bodies such as the...

    #323 - An argument that anyone who doesn't "save money" (read as "avoid fuel taxes") by using a Scal... "electric" car understands. #338 - That depends on the value assigned to "those drones were expensive". A Meggitt Banshee drone is...

    #293 - Well, there are UK shows advertised as being "about Gypsies". They are actually about Irish Travelers, based on testimony from actual Roma I know. #300 - I hope this doesn't mean that you're blaming me for "some people"...

    #196 - As written, I can't either, for certain values of the statement. Of course, as it stands, your statement excludes the use of thyristor circuits and timer circuits as methods of temperature control. #212 - Cheers; I had realised...

    Replying to points as bulleted:- 1) Stove not level is an issue of installation, not fuel. 2) Radiants being binary is a model design issue, not a function of fuel used. 3) That's just agreeing my point about knowing your...

    "Great British Bake-Off" doesn't work for me, because in otder to bake well you have to really know your oven, and work in a controlled environment. The show provided the ovens, and is set in a tent! "Deadliest Catch" is...

    #104 Para 3 - Yes, but several Shuttle crew are on record as saying that John Glenn's trip was a publicity stunt and would never have been done had he been anyone else. #142 - Model shops (all types, not...

    Actually, there was a show along these lines on the BBC, but they didn't vet contestants. The result in one case was Rowan Atkinson (IRL HGV1 (US Class 8) licence holder because he wanted one and could afford the course)...
