Having a good bushy beard came in useful while reading this comment. I furrowed by brow and scratched my beard in scepticism.
Excelent point well made. No chips for me this lunch then!
The notion of birds calculating the fractal dimension of a prospective mate's feathers seems about as farfetched as baseball fielders calculating the exact mathematical damped parabolic path of the ball to work out where to put their hand. It also indicates that if true, birds are much nerdier than my physicist friends and should in theory have less chance of getting a date. As such, this theory is debunked by birds not being extinct through lack of mating! I do buy the notion that birds could see the effect without doing the maths though.
I would much rather share a flight with spuds than travellers. For example, new potatoes are tasty, whereas babies are noisy and smelly.
Well I was going to delete my account but now you mention that, I might just keep it.
Did we really avoid it? Did we jump out of the way? Did we cunningly hide behind something or choose not to bother going round the sun this time to avoid doom? No. If the small lumps of rock missed us without intervention then we certainly didn’t do any avoiding. So really what happened is: Orbit A had an interestingly (if you find a lump of rock interesting) proximity to orbit B.
Is it not suspicious also that their main feature is a little stick that gets bigger when you hold onto it. Admittedly it is a kickass weapon, but the feminist within would prefer if there was a less masculine option
Now for the study proving that pizza and beer are good also. I feel I may be a valid entry to the data set there...
Lazy, lazy, lazy. If they gout out of their dressing gowns and actually went to the office, then they wouldn't need all this fancy stuff to do the trades.
Taking chocolate to the other extreme, dunking it in liquid nitrogen makes it shatter. I learnt a lesson that should not be repeated... Don't eat cryo cooled chocolate. When it shatters in your mouth it's like having a mouth full of cold knives. However after a while and some whimpering it did melt - so hurrah for melty chocolate!
Indeed, it does seem silly that the laptop has enough ram and cpu to work on photographic pieces but here's no chance of appreciating them properly. On the other hand, my laptop was given to me so can't complain too much...
This potentially devalues my fiancée. Negative equity on the house and fiancée, ho hum
Oh I say - unicorn burgers - now that's a good idea!
Where can we buy shares? This opens the universe for trading. The return in investment could be one over a small infinity. Much better than one over a large infinity!
Innovation is a good contender, though it's got to be "plan". Some of the chaps in my department spout the term but quite frankly they couldn't plan their way out of a paper bag. Hurrah for being a civil servant...
