Europe's floods and fires snapped from space

Thames, but not the Severn

Yes, typical that the slightly expanded Thames gets pointed out, but the huge areas of the Severn and Avon valleys that are equally (if not more) visible are ignored.

Remind me where the 300,000 people without running water are again? It's not in the southeast, so I suppose we shouldn't be interested, right? After all, the government didn't get interested until the Thames started flooding.

Mobile-mast danger is all in your head

The Columbus & Fulton argument deployed

From the bbc.co.uk story: ...But Mast Sanity declared "history has shown that many now commonly accepted physical conditions were initially dismissed as psychological"...

I love it when a group titled 'Mast Sanity' deploys the Columbus & Fulton argument.

In the words of Carl Sagan: "The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown."

I suspect that maybe Bozo the Clown is a paid-up member of 'Mast Sanity'.

SkyNet 5 blasts into space

Dan Mathias

Haven't they seen 'The Terminator'?

Only 'Military Intelligence' (sic) could come up with a system called Skynet...

Coming soon: the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, complete with authentic Austrian accent

At least we can be sure that, being a British military project it will be very, very late and almost certainly won't work (viz. Bowman radios).
