    They've talked about fem Whos before, but didn't have the story line to fit. See what happens eh?

    Of course, none of this would be needed if you know, behaved like a fricking parent..

    But no, lets punish everyone because you cant do your job...you chose to have a child, youre responsible for it, not the rest of society...

    Makes you wonder how mankind got this far dont it?

    Apparently "everyone" around the chosen one opened their peanut packets at exactly the same time and a mist of peanut stuff descended from the air. These people reek of having an agenda.

    We must find out who all these people are who are simultaneously opening peanut packets to try and kill the kiddies and have them publicly flogged because the chosen ones parents didnt think to perhaps be a parent and get the kid a mask...everyone knows there is a high chance of peanuts being on a long haul flight. they had 4 epipens on them, whats a fricking mask cost if youre that worried...no you'd rather be reactive and jab needles in your kid....that makes perfect sense. I was barely 3 when the concept of prevention being better than a cure was made clear to me. These are grown ass people, so whats their excuse exactly.

    Ive been sick for many months, im not going to Bowral to the nursing home this week again because theyre again in lockdown due to gastro. Sure i could go, and possibly get sick on top of my known issue, and then blame literally everyone else, but that just doesnt seem rational to me...

    I was wrong in my OP about this, it was Singapore Airlines, sadly Qantas pillowed to the pressure of the 0.6 – 1.0 % of people years ago who have peanut allergy, because penalising 99-99.4% of the population seems rational. you can still get pissed on a plane though and make everyones flight a nightmare, but we cant have peanuts on there....

    p.s. i hate peanuts, the last thing to ever make me vomit, when i was 8, was peanut butter.

    Nice story but it would require some faith in the interconnectedness of life on earth. I'm not a believer, but it does make you wonder.


    oh and that for all the money they spent on the hadron collider we dont actually know what would happen if you put your hand in it - all things are just speculation...
    Speculate no more. A Russian scientist stuck his head inside a particle accelerator. Not on purpose of course, he did not expect it to be on since there are supposed to be safety mechanisms to prevent that but it really did happen:
    https://qz.com/964065/this-is-what-h...e-accelerator/

    My understanding is that that tube is supposed to be under the hardest vacuum possible, not open to the lab, so that most probably contributed to his survival. Still, I think it's about as close as we are going to get to answering that particular question. Certainly close enough for me.

    ETA: here's another and better article on the particle beam accident: http://www.todayifoundout.com/index....e-accelerator/

    I was a bit disappointed when they first turned it on and it didnt suck us all into a singularity because i really wanna know whats on the other side of a black hole, and im comfy with taking you all with me to find out

    Yes, they've done some really great stuff. It was interesting seeing how they pulled all of the story surrounding the various doctors together into one timeline. That shouldn't even have been possible LOL.

    Lol fab I like the wondering an am very prone to it (in case you didnt notice ) - it makes the world for all its faults an amazing place for me - shakespeare quote comes to mind

    “There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

    The older I get, the more I read, the more true this becomes in many ways


    Checked out your article on the hadron accident - Thats pretty amazing too! and the fact that he survived- bet he surprised a few people with his survival as well- it is a sh*it tho that for all he studying and phd and the first accident of this type that he was denied his free meds and the opportunity to work with western scientists - science in many ways is terribly underfunded and under rated

    And several steampunk versions:



    And I'm sure it partly inspired the Innokin 134:
