Chomp that sausage: Brits just LOVE scoffing a Full Monty

Dalek Dave

Re: So basiclly,

Not so.

Our Fry-ups are perfectly healthy.

Egg, (One - Fried, not over easy)

Bacon (Proper back bacon, not that crispy slither of fat you get Stateside)

Sausage (Proper sausage with real meat, not the gristle filled tube of indeterminate animal parts sold in the USA)

Beans (See, we do Vegetables!)

Mushrooms (Deliciously fried in the bacon fat, that not wasteful)

Black Pudding (Americans really do not want to know what is in this)

Fried Slice (A king amongst bread products, and we do not put sugar in our bread)

Grilled Tomato (We do Fruit too!)

There is no side order of pancakes and syrup, and it is designed to sit on a plate, not be presented in a tower formation some six inches high.

Served with tea (Milk and Two as you are asking).

Breakfast of Kings!

When one was demobbed after WW2 one was given one's Demob Suit.

This was designed by Montegue Burton.

When a fellow soldier had been demobbed he was said to have 'Gone for a Burton'.

If the fellow plumped for the 3-Piece version, he is said to have gone for the 'Full Monty'.

It has nothing at all to do with Bernard's Breakfast.

Boffins: Antarctic glacier in irreversible decline, will raise sea levels by 1cm

Dalek Dave

Hmmm...Antarctic Sea Ice Growing?

http://phys.org/news/2013-10-antarctic-sea-ice.html

3.6% larger!

I do wish there was some kind of consistency between what scientists say and what is actually happening.

(And I use the words Scientists completely incorrectly, perhaps 'Media Whores With a Vested Interested in Continued Funding For Crackpot Ideas About Climate Who Have Joined The Gravy Train And Do Not Wish To Get Off')

Chinese Moon rover, lander duo wake up after two-week snooze

Dalek Dave

Re: A lot of risk was taken for the Moon landings

What is amazing is the crash shown in the opening of The Six Million Dollar Man was a real crash and the pilot walked away from it. (Well, was carried away from it) and he lived on until he died in 2006.

He hated the programme as it kept reminding him of the worst day of his life.

(Although I suspect that 1st of May 2006 wasn't a good one for him either).

Re: @ Dalek Dave

I see evidence of vehicle landings, not evidence of a man wandering about there.

There is a difference.

Sending robot devices is one thing, a manned landing is something else.

Perhaps they should send it to an Apollo landing site and take photos of the Astronauts footsteps.

Then I will believe that NASA sent men to the moon.

PC market: ABANDON HOPE all ye who enter here

Dalek Dave

The correct term is "Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here"

Not, as you have written, "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here"

Dear God, did none of you read Dante's Inferno?

It has been around for 700 years, one would have thought you would get it right :)

There is a special place in hell reserved for people who misquote Dante.

Oooh! My NAUGHTY SKIRT keeps riding up! Hello, INTERNET EXPLORER

Dalek Dave

How many Asians have blue eyes?

And this is bordering on hebephilia and is more than a little 'Creepy' coming from a corporate hive mind like MS.

Did they specifically desire a sexually provocative 13 year old with budding breasts and a short skirt to be their mascot?

What next? Will she be doing Money Shots if you buy VS13?

Staying power: The small screen spans of the eleven Doctor Whos

Dalek Dave

Re: Assistants

I think the longest time anyone has ever spent travelling with the doctor is nearly 32 years.

In 1982 a Cyberman went down the corridor of the Tardis in the story Earthshock, and he is yet to return.

Re: Oh yeah...

He wasn't "The Doctor", he played a character called "Dr Who".

Where one is a 950 year old alien from the planet Gallifrey, who has two hearts, a self-renewing cell structure and penchant for attractive young women, the other was a human Earthling who only had grand-daughters and strange men.

The films are not canon.

Pac-Man GHOST nebula is literally the coolest thing in the universe – boffins

Dalek Dave

"Coldest Place In The Universe"

Hmmm not sure about that.

At 1 degree Kelvin it is rather warmer than the 1 nanoKelvin reached at MIT

http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2003/cooling.html

So I would say that as it is one billion times warmer it is not quite the coldest place in the universe.

Who should play the next Doctor? Nominations needed!

Dalek Dave

Re: Who should play the next Doctor? Nominations needed!

I think Johnny Lee Miller would be good.

And since it seems appropriate that he be played by someone British, how about Kiefer Sutherland?

Richard E Grant anyone?

However, and given that he has already 'played' the role, what of David Morrissey?

Hyperspeed travel looks wrong: Leicester students

Dalek Dave

ER...Rubbish!

They travel through Hyperspace.

No-one can possibly say what it looks like.

Perhaps it really does look like the opening titles of Doctor Who circa 1975.

The 'Jump to lightspeed' is therefore a metaphor for 'Do the necessary calculations in order to create and enter a hyperspace field'.

I would be more concerned about the apparent motion of the X-Wings as they appear to move through an atmosphere rather than a vacuum.

Making MACH 1: Can we build a cranial computer today?

Dalek Dave

Predictions

Sci-fi has also been amazingly prescient.

Imagine a small handheld book that contained a vast amount of, usually inaccurate or unhelpful, information about every subject known to man (or Vogon).

There you go, The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy was only Wikipedia on a Tablet.

We do not live in a metric world.

24 hours a day, seven days a week, we turn 360 degrees and still know what a pint should be.

The metric system was invented by unemployed French coiffures after the revolution, so is obviously crap.

You only know a man when you have walked 1.609 km in his moccasins.

DOCTOR WHO world, or Magrathea, SPOTTED* orbiting twin suns

Dalek Dave

There is another planet

Of course it cannot be Gallifrey, as any fule no, Gallifrey is in the constellation of Kasterborous, not Cygnus.

And what of it's other sister planet, Karn?

The Sisterhood will get you!
