  1. Bought some trousers half price: Got them home & they only had one leg..... I'll get me coat on the way out....
  2. If something is not totally impossible then it can & will happen somewhere sometime in the universe no matter how improbable it is. It's pretty improbable that I'd win an argument with my wife but one day it will happen, probably sometime in the next 42 trillion years...
  3. A sound I dreaded from my childhood down the Meadows was when someone shouted "I'VE TOLD YOUR MAM WHAT YOU'VE DONE!" As I knew Mam would be waiting for me to administer a biffing. I'd sneak in the house hoping not to be noticed but I always was & got my just deserts...
  4. 52 years today since the pirate radio stations went off air. They said there were no wavelengths on medium wave for them, yet a few years later in the early 70's the BBC local stations fired up, then the local ILR stations fired up all on medium wave.... The medium wave band is almost empty nowadays, mind you it's full of mains born interference from CFL's/routers/digital TV's & whatnot last time I checked...
  5. Peel bananas before you weigh & buy them at the supermarket, also saves on rubbish at home so you'll use less bin bags...
  6. Schrodingers equations take some working out, lol.... I'm wondering if a black hole is of such infinite smallness that some other sort of physics beyond quantum physics takes over? How we'd ever be able to prove this I have zero idea. I'm trying to get my head round the concept of 'infinite smallness,' you'd think there's a limit to how small something can be, but then when you think about it in a common sense sort of way you can always go a bit smaller.... I sometimes look at my cat Pix & wonder if he thinks about quantum physics & black holes, I wonder???
  7. I lay in bed thinking last night.... If a black hole can have a quantum superposition, & that superposition means said black hole can be in two places at once, then I speculate that the mass of the each BH would be halved as the mass would be shared out between them. If the mass of each BH is less than the BH forming mass then would the two superposition'd BH's then no longer be BH's? I'm wondering if this phenomena could explain gamma ray bursts or fast radio bursts as they could be superposition pair black holes going "POP." If however the mass isn't halved, or extreme gravitational fields prevents superposition then my hypothesis has turned to dust....
  8. I remember when we'd moved to Bestwood Village when I was 14, I'd lay in bed with the window wide open listening to the night sounds of the village. There was a slipping screaching conveyor belt on the pit screens, a compressor coming on & off load, a Mackemsons bus pulling away from the pit baths stop, a Midland General Bristol Lo-Decker B8 bus pulling away from the bowling green at end of Park Road, a coal train chugging & clanking on the railway lines to Hucknall, Linby & Colvo pits, the boozed up boozers coming out the Top Pub (Bestwood Hotel) & Welfare shouting "GOODNIGHT, SEE YOU TOMORROW!" Then remember how late it was a say "Shhh, you'll wake up the kids!" We were already awake though. Then I'd drift off to sleep listening to a fading Radio Luxembourg on the 2 transistor TRF radio I'd built from my electronic constructors set I'd got for my 14'th birthday.... Now all I can hear is the M1 roaring away over over the fields....
  9. Read somewhere that flywheel powered buses where very efficient & the answer: You'd run up a flywheel at the terminus, the flywheel would then generate the electricity to power the wheels for the buses journey. If you got stuck in traffic & the flywheel ran down then you'd - er - uhm - well - wait for a special truck with a flywheel winder-up-gubbins-thingy powered by petrol or diesel..... Ahh-ah, I know, you could have a petrol or diesel engine in the bus to power the flywheel then if it runs down there's no problem. There I've sorted the problem out for the council...
  10. Remember this as though it was last week. Atherton lived just round the corner from me & I'd known him for years, I'd take him out on L plates in his car & SWR'd his CB radio for him. Got the shock of my life when this happened, I'd spoke to him in the afternoon on the day he did it. Channel 4 got in touch with me for background info when they were doing their documentary on it...
  11. "Know what I mean?" That gets my goat, know what I mean?...... Also "you know." Not sure if that's a question or statement...
  12. I grew a beard & tash & they were both bright blond, I looked more of a pillock than I normally do so I shaved them off...
  13. I saw the sun rise from 40,000 feet over the Atlantic a few weeks ago & could clearly see the curvature of the earth....... Are there any flat earthers on Nottstagia? I'd love to talk to one. The nearest I've got was my late Mother-in-law who said the sun went from west to east when she was in Joondalup Western Australia as it went the wrong way. When her sister-in-law said they were going up north for the warmer weather she corrected them & said "no, you mean south, it gets colder when you go north!" It was explained to her loads of times but she never got it...
  14. In science daily today... 'Einstein's right - for now'... A star orbiting near the massive black hole at the centre of our galaxy is doing exactly as Einstein's general relativity predicts it should. But they're saying general relativity can't be right as it doesn't predict what will happen when the star is gobbled up by the black hole. They're watching the star hoping it gets gobbled soon so they can see what happens, & see if general relativity still fly's, or if it crashes & burns. They have no idea when the star gobbling will take place...
  15. I remember there was a really pretty girl worked the till in Moorbridge petrol station who I fancied, I'd go for £1's worth of petrol as that's all I could afford, never got anywhere with her though...
