Getting through it. It's self-published and could do with some professional editing, it's occasionally repetitive, but it's a useful reference book for the history of all sorts of altmed nonsense. I can only admire his perseverance to put it all together and the amount of work required!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

A youtube channel well worth subscribing to is Tom Scott's. He has several themes of videos: Things you might not know, Amazing places, Built for science, etc. They tend to be very short - just a few minutes - but I dare you to try to find something that's not interesting or something that does not make you say, "wow".

Not so much science as civil engineering:

An example:


Imagine taking the cure, and the facility to administer it, to the patient.

60% of the total volume of this unit can be used to carry medical supplies and equipment. The remaining 40% expands to create a space 200% larger that the entire unit.

Falcon Heavy test launch: Scheduled for 18:30 UT today.

Edit:
From SpaceX (16:58 UT):
T-0 delayed to 2:20 p.m. EST, 19:20 UTC due to upper level wind shear. Continuing to monitor winds and will update as info becomes available.



Watch the launch: http://www.spacex.com/webcast

Animation of what should happen (but lots could go wrong in practice):

That was just stunning! The two boosters landed in complete sync. There will shortly be an electric car in orbit around the sun...

Watched it on a huge screen at our astro soc meeting. At least half a second difference between the booster touchdowns: bloody shoddy sychronisation if you ask me :laughter: !

Now, if Bertrand Russell had used the analogy of a sports car instead of a teapot, we'd be in trouble... :wink:
