Bill Gates: So, you see, dear, now I can track them. This latest one, see, he lives in a house boat just here!
Melinda Gates: [Says nothing, as they separated last month and so contractually aren't in the same location.]
Bill Gates: And this one, see: he's in a Greggs. It's a place for selling grease products - they have them in north England.

"... Another writer again agreed with all my generalities, but said that as an inveterate skeptic I have closed my mind to the truth.  Most notably I have ignored the evidence for an Earth that is six thousand years old.  Well, I haven't ignored it; I considered the purported evidence and *then* rejected it.  There is a difference, and this is a difference, we might say, between prejudice and postjudice.  Prejudice is making a judgment before you have looked at the facts.  Postjudice is making a judgment afterwards.  Prejudice is terrible, in the sense that you commit injustices and you make serious mistakes.  Postjudice is not terrible.  You can't be perfect of course; you may make mistakes also.  But it is permissible to make a judgment after you have examined the evidence.  In some circles it is even encouraged."

This is why I say - trust the science. Trust the scientist? Depends on the scientist.

Fossilised remains of a prehistoric rhino discovered in China that was "the size of six elephants".

That's one big baldy horse right there.

I am waiting for the device that can render people and things invisible, ever since HG Wells; now I am obsessed over it.

Hyperstealth Biotechnology's "invisibility cloak" can conceal people and buildings.

hmmm ... looks like the spambots are back at work.  Still, at least it's a bit more coherent than some of the Russian architecture sites we had not long back ...

Hmmm...A 2000 AD / Ikea crossover range of furniture could have potential.
