  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    So what is a "dial" in some sort of real world, relatable unit?...

    #898 - Our wheelies are, as near as I can measure it without a pedometer, 70 feet from the kerb line, which means "back of house". They have to go out the previous evening because recyclable (plastic, metal, paper and...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Well, in the first place, we said that a large part of road dust is tyres and brakes. Secondly, did you miss the whole thing where salt is water soluble? That's actually why you put it on roads in Winter....

    What do the Lemocrats stand for? Wee boys hiding in the corner and hoping that someone bigger and tougher* doesn't notice them and do something nasty, like asking them a question? (my take on the Scottish Parliament election leaders' debates,...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Isn't this just asking for a Kessler Effect disaster? I mean, I'm a software engineer, and it's one of the first things I thought of....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Go on then; what's your solution to the problem of photovoltaic solar panels not generating any electricity when it's dark?...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Agreed, with the note that it's far from uncommon to see public waste bins that are "full to overflowing", in those places where you can still find them at all....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #837 - I like the idea, not least because it seems to trap the plastics in the roof for the life of the building at least, and maybe longer depending on demolition techniques. Also, as long as the plastics are...

    #767 Para 4 - Actually, HRH the Princess Anne is the most popular around here. #785 - Cheers. #791 Para - UK light bulbs are not all screw fit. Or all bayonet cap, or all push-in fittings. #793 - Not...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Greg, there are depressing signs from last May's elections that Englandshire actually believes at least some of Bozo's lies. The best entertainment from there right now is amateur jogger Demonic Cummins' attempt at a cabinet reshuffle....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #726 - Yeah, Bozo and the Cons playbook is obvious, except for the bit where their Scottish leader is Dross (really; this is how Douglas Ross MSP signs himself). I'm less certain what Scottish Liebour under Anas Sarwar are doing...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Wee Nic? Maybe; I do know she's more popular amongst English SF fans than Bozo, Keir Stammer or Sidiq Kahn are....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    I'm not saying that this will be true of everyone, but most of the people I know are single, or, if in a couple, have 0, 1 or 2 children. A stable population requires most people to be coupled, and...

    Er, the Atacama Desert is in Chile....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Para 2 - I'd tend to disagree (and so I think will the Relativists). If the observer is in orbit around the body that generates the gravitational force, then they are moving at a non-zero velocity (Newtonian and Einsteinian motion...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #586 - Any term more elegant than "USian" I've seen is something like "Yank(ee)", "Confederate" et al that only refers to some states, and carries distinct connotations of the "(US of) American War of Independence". #591 para the last -...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    No, "because Covid 19"....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Of course you can keep it, but don't let it run about on the Internet unsupervised!...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #502 - The "District of Columbia" and "Australian Capitol Territory" are the same legal thing. A political geography move to make the national capital not legally part of any one state or territory. #511 - "United States of Australia"? ;-)...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    :-) and, in the spirit of the video, I'd like to say "Congratulations Canada, on completing a trans-continental railroad."...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Exactly, with the additional note that Salma is Mexican, therefore, {drum roll} American....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    I have, and think you've missed the point. "America" is 2 (sometimes 3) continents, and is not a nationality....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Disagree. Bill Shatner is American, and so is Salma Hayek, so was Simon Bolivar......
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Mike Myers is Canadian, not USian. Not that this makes the Austin Powers trilogy any funnier....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #420 - Well, my father was a bank manager, and would have considered an affordable mortgage (not house price; the mortgage doesn't include a cash deposit) would be up to 3x the principal earner's annual salary. #432 Para 1 -...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Thanks. Message forwarded to my sister so we can discuss it before talking to Mum....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Just a quick thank you to Charlie for tolerating my threadjack, and thanks for caring enough to try to help to those who responded....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Well, I remember seeing said Greeks on what (unknown to me) was a Michael Palin travelogue, and starting the "It's not very silly" part of the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    #317 - Thanks; tried the diet and it's been rejected for reasons of her taste. #318 - Yes, the diabetes is mentioned in his Wikipedia (but nothing associated is). I also thought I remembered something "like" your account but I...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    {threadjack} Look, I know but I seriously need some help here. My mother suffers from wet macular degeneration (the incurable sort), and we are playing around with spectacles and magnifiers to help her read. Now I have just brought to...
