Speaking of water doing weird things - I've seen one of these in reality, on display for a while in the grounds of Trinity College in Dublin.  I think it's basically a giant printer but my word, it's utterly mesmerising.

That's pretty cool - but I still prefer my favourite clock, the one at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam

Wow.  Don't fancy his job much, mind you.

Press conference at 3:00pm today, apparently.


Didn't take long to get a chat going with them.

Sorry, my mistake — some kind of briefing from The Royal Astronomical Society at 4:00pm.

Well, that was a bit underwhelming! Damn you scientists and your measured lines of enquiry! I want hyperbole and wild speculation!

I was hoping for a message from our new Venusian overlords now that our atmosphere is warm enough for them to live here.

Been racking my brain trying to think of the name of a documentary I saw a few years ago with 'artistic concepts' of Venusian atmosphere dwelling aliens.
They were kinda like that Green Lantern who looks like an onion with tentacles.
