    Re cranky posters One thing I always valued about this blog was that pretty much everyone was unfailingly polite. Even Catinadiamond. The last 2 years that's pretty much gone away. The Seagull got so obnoxious that she got banned. I've...

    Hetero said: solar panels Yes. Pretty much agreed. I think the plan is no panels on roof or walls. Rooftop garden, views from every apartment. Which sort of makes sense. They're going to need lots of panels long before this...

    Replying to noone in particular. NSW has just shy of 9 million people and 220 hospitals. If you give the line 220 hospitals they would be a bit under 800 metres apart. So noone should be more than 400m walk...

    Hetero said: If it's not supposed to maximize solar gain, it needs to be built perpendicular to run north-south, not east-west. You've got that back to front. N-S gives maximum solar gain. E-W minimum. It's near the equator. Sun rises...

    Today I've been mulling over the giganticly shit things that have happened to my friends here on this blog and I desperately want to find some sort of words that impart my understanding and sympathy, but I've got nothing. I've...

    An aside. The issue I was talking about with hospitals demanding people remove their proper mask and put on a face decoration has made it to the British Medical Journal. They cover much the same ground we did together, but...

    Maybe. Except the AA corporate response was only medical masks are allowed (which it was) and the advice given on the day was correct, no mention of valves. The Delta flight it was a mask without an unfiltered exhaust. Really...

    Oh, PS, lots of airlines are refusing to let you fly with a mask on, or only allowing you to fly with a surgical mask (which is the same as no mask for all reasonable purposes). If you're going to...

    I think the psychotropic effects started at something like 60 bar, (memory a bit faint, so maybe not). So you can't get high breathing a couple of lungfulls on the surface. Unless you count hypoxia as getting high. From memory...

    You're not the only one to fool around with hydrogen as a breathing medium. One of the big two, (Comex and Oceaneering) but I can't remember which, tried it, I think in the 70's. It has to contain less than...
