  • That last line just spoiled it all :p








  • Things I have been totally unprepared for, namely-questions from my young son. Feel free to suggest answers.

    "What's the letter P made out of?"
    "If something is invisible does it still have elements?"
    "Do triangles really exist?"
    "Do you think aliens wash their clothes?"
    "Did the Vikings have pet lizards?"
    ...and trust me, there are lots more!

    P is made out of pixels. Its why its called P.
    Invisible things only have one element. The element of surprise.
    Only three sided triangles exist. If anyone tells you they saw a four sided one they are only lying.
    Aliens have their mums wash their clothes for them.
    Vikings preferred gizzards to lizards.

    Any more I can field for you?




  • A few more from the curious mind:

    "Why are there doors?"
    "Why are doors boring?"
    "Can aliens pretend to be vampires if they want?"
    Referring to dogs tails - "How fast is a wag?"
    "What does a kick in the 'wee-bag' feel like?"
    "Can snails eat stones?"
    "What does it feel like inside an orange?"

    tougher ones..Ill have to go with:

    "Why are there doors?"
    did you know in Japan doors go sideways!!??
    "Why are doors boring?"
    to help you go to sleep when the door is closed
    "Can aliens pretend to be vampires if they want?"
    only illegal aliens
    Referring to dogs tails - "How fast is a wag?"
    best to rely on maths t=2pi*SQRT(l/g) where l is how long his tail is- lets go measure and check!
    "What does a kick in the 'wee-bag' feel like?"
    somehow worse than a kick in the big-bag
    "Can snails eat stones?"
    no, but they rock out at weekends
    "What does it feel like inside an orange?"
    it always makes me feel a bit blue :(


    You might note that im not great at giving kids useful information

    except that pendulum equation.

  • I know this is slightly on topic, but what are good sites for buying surplus gear? I'm primarily looking to get boots and trousers (combats).

    Or would I just be better off spinning down to capel street?

    if the trail was ok it would be good in a shtf situation where you might need to carry everything it would be excellent I still would be afraid it might pull you off your feet.

    See the way I look at it is if I had it fully loaded and you where attacked by someone or something it would be a hazard you couldnt jump a wall with it or even on to the roof of a car or van without dropping it and loosing all your kit

  • A piranha cousin rumored to go after testicles might be invading brackish waters near Copenhagen.
