By pure luck I was able to watch the launch from Florida, I was on holiday doing the Disney thing with my kids. I got talking to someone who realised that I liked "spacy things" and offered me a free ticket to see the launch.
I think we were about 5 miles from the pad and it was one of the loudest things I ever heard, I had seen other launches on TV and heard the sound "crackle" I just assumed that this was the microphones overloading, hearing it live and the thing crackled like gods own crisp packet!
I'm curious, I have a phone provided by my employer, I am allowed to use it for private calls and emails. If I am stopped at the airport and asked to hand over the phone and or passwords, can I do that, as the phone does not belong to me and my employer has told me to NEVER reveal company confidential information to anyone?
If it was a weekend there would be no one available at the office to contact
Sky programs are unwatchable, I just get interested in a film and some idiot is trying to flog me car insurance. If I record the programs it's a bit better, I can skip past the adds but it's still a pain.
The hardware is unreliable, my current HD box (my 4th I think) is a record beater, it has lasted almost 2 years without having to be be replaced (though I have had to do several reformat/firmware updates)
I was pestered by one firm trying to get me to claim damages for whiplash etc. I politely pointed out that the accident involved someone knocking off my wing mirror while I was about a mile away from the vehicle. They said they would remove my details from their list, over the next few months I got several calls every week for the same thing, one day I got 3 calls in the space of an hour. I finally shut them up by saying in a loud voice "I hope you and your children all get cancer" Not nice, but they have now stopped calling me.
Living in the UK for 62 years, I never even saw a gun in real life until about 10 years ago (that was at an airport) we have no native animals likely to attack us, I have never been in a situation where I felt the need to kill or threaten anyone. So no need for a gun (or even a big stick!)
Americans claim guns keep them safe, but there are more gun deaths in a week in America than in a year in the UK, even allowing for the difference in population size I know which feels safer to me.
