I thought I might as well start a thread for everyone to stick the little random bits and bobs in rather than making a new thread everytime

I'll start it off with this which I found quite amusing.......I don't how much you guys have heard of the story, but the media in London has been going mad over it.....The evening standard done a 4 page spread about it?!

Isnt this a fine example of natural selection. The Bottle-nosed whales will now evolve into a much stronger race, now they are not being held back by this twat of a fish.

Haha yes, that story is so washed up. (eep)

I found it amazing how the news reports said that it captured the heart of the world. Anyway, the funny round off to the story is that the people trying to rescue it were issued with £300 parking tickets.

Quote:
Rescue charity workers notched up £300 worth of parking fines as they battled in vain to save a whale found swimming up the River Thames.

Who won't those parking attendants tag?

Good, it can go towards the £100,000 they spent on it!

the 'rescuers' are trying to raise the cash back that they spent/wasted
by selling 'the' red watering can they used to keep the beast moist on Ebay... it was running at £120 000 a couple of days ago.

have you been watching the old 1960s batman tv series? because i seem to remember exploding sharks play quite a large part in that. the joker (or was it the riddler?) liked to catapult them at batman. lets hope that potential terrorists aren't watching old batman shows for tips. or we could quite easily be faced quite soon with an influx of dehydrated pirates being smuggled into the country and then rehydrated, as i remember that was one of the penguin's favourite tactics. i'm worried now

something i found quite an interesting read with some good pics.....

http://www.angelfire.com/extreme4/kiddo ... pter2.html

I never really knew much about the subject but I cant belive they just 'buried' 95% of the radiation on site, but i guess thats was the best idea if it measures 300,000 times the normal ammount of radiation in the area around it, and thats not even anywhere close to ground zero, and only with 5% ever escaping.

Image

if these facts are true and the 'sarcophagus' of the reactor will remain radioactiove for around 100,000 years............thats fucking nuts.....Authorties would have a contstant battle to keep it safe and secure..............but im also thinking if there was a war in that area..(proablly will be in the next 100,000 years).............if someone dropped a nuke on that place europe would be fucked!

Look how much Belarus has been fucked up and it wasn't even anything to do with them :( [/list]

If someone dropped a nuke anywhere it would be pretty fucked boyo.

Its a good job the new generation of nuclear fission is far far safer. Look up pebble bed reactors, chain reactions are near enough impossible with them.

Thats not even mentioning that if/when we ever crack fusion we'll have a pretty much limitless source of energy.
