Molten Salt Reactors
For those of you interested, there is a UK design in Molten Salt Reactors which, unlike the LFTR, uses existing nuclear qualified parts and doesn't involve pumping radioactive salt through heat exchangers. It also uses heat storage which would justify deployment of renewable energy sources by acting as a backup reactor. Currently would run off spent nuclear fuel, although in the long term could be developed for thorium.
I''d be interested in them scrutinising Will Smith's claim that he never made a whack jam.

Re: 360° badger sett simulator
I hope this is something he's seriously considered before rushing Headlong into it.
To be honest I was expecting to see more Innuendos by this point.
For some reason it made me think of this:
Re: Take notes
Me too. It's also a lot easier to draw a free-body diagram (or indeed any diagram) by hand.
Easy on the Croydon slurs, people.
Surely that should have been a picture of Johnny 5. Although I suppose WALL-E looks similar enough.

That's because the engineer there has his hat hard on.
Sorry, I meant his hat hard on... I said it again!
Re: Where to put it?
I'd put it under a swimming pool, the lid of which will slowly retract whenever it needs to be launched.
"Babylon 5's a big pile of shit!"
I got the joke, even if no-one else did.
Sounds like Watson can read even faster than Johnny Five.

Re: BACK TO THE FUTURE, PT 2
Of course, that would have actually been at the end of the first Back to the Future film. Your point still stands.

I'd like to buy the whole of the Cassini team a beer for their continuing brilliance but to furnish them with the amount of alcohol they deserve would leave me brassic, and them too drunk to continue working.

"Local football will never be the same again..."
Seeing as FIFA refuse to use computers to determine whether or not a goal has been scored, I don't think this development will have much of an impact on footy.
"Pi has inspired other tributes as well, including iPhone apps, a feature film, T-shirts, and one pizza joint in San Francisco and a chain of them based in St Louis – and, of course, there's the Raspberry Pi."
Not forgetting the Big Muff Pi and associated spin-offs.

Yowser! Apart from that alarming revelation, it would be quicker to use something like 06060606 because then you could use 2 fingers.

Were you expecting Dr Manhattan?
This sounds like a new Reg Unit for data transfer!
Should that not be "Human Culture"?
Thumbs up for the rest of it.
Das ist alles.
He has already been immortalised by neurologists; time perception is, of course, governed by the Shatner's Bassoon. There's still plenty of potential for the name Vulcan to be assigned to more appropriate rock in the galaxy, there isn't a shortage of them. I daresay the trekkies will have cause to celebrate one day.

Re: Still waiting for films based on ...
Alpha Centauri would either be mind-blowingly awesome or mind-numbingly terrible.
Doom is awesome
I saw Street Fighter in the cinema when i was about 10, and realised it was a turkey back then. Having watched it again recently, it is devoid of the vast majority of the special moves, except for some throws that don't require any CGI. The word HADOUKEN appears nowhere in the film.
Super Mario Bros. concentrates far too much on the brothers' plumbing skills and not enough on the jumping/mushroom-eating for my liking.
David Webb's (above) review of Resi is spot on.
Doom looks like it is a real film with an actual budget, game plot-line discrepancies aside. The Rock may not be a great actor but everyone else is at least averagely convincing. And the first-person section is an amazing bit of cinematography.
Can't comment on the rest, haven't seen 'em.
There is literally no point arguing about this. No-one will win.
