It's looking more and more like this is going to end in complete destruction.

Yeah, pretty unlikely whatever is left will be structurally sound.

The important angle of course is the “remain” narrative.

Well, at least you had 450 years longer than we did. Let's hope they can restore it - that was NEVER an option for St Paul's after 1666.

And, FFS, let's hope they don't put a Louvre-pyramidy structure in there somewhere...

Never heard about it that I can recall. This is something I am going to rectify soon, but not immediately because I am currently rereading the Foreigner series and I am currently on book 12 of the currently 19 published.

So, fairly soon though. C. J. Cherryh is one of my favourite "SiFi" authors partly becausee of he unique prose style and her treatments of her story subjects.

Yes.

Seconded.

The film of the book (Stalker), though interesting (for Tarkovskian values of interesting) really doesn't do it justice.

Threw a pile of my clothes into the wash including a pocketed iPhone 5.

The distance going by foot between Notre Dame and the Eiffel tower is 4.4 km (2.7 miles). Just a few minutes if you catch the RER C at St Michel. The distance as the crow flies is 4.0 km or 2,27 miles.

Boy, that add takes me back - non-captive tabs on cans (but then again, I remember when you used to need a can opener to make the triangular holes).

The free tabs were great for taking people's eyes out, though - snap off the ring and use the curved piece in the slot in the ring to launch it at some fucker like a tiny aluminium frisbee.

Yup. I also remember these with great fondness...

http://www.sundaypost100.com/wp-content ... ign-41.png

There was one I had a mega-throbber for, "Linda" if memory serves me correctly, and I'd damn near start a riot looking for her whenever a "slab" was purchased. Ah, the joys of being a 15 year old fuckwit! I've searched the net and although I found a "Linda" beercan, it's an earlier version with a different model.

Also: speaking of stupid "tricks" with household items, next time you're feeling frisky/evil, try this: upend a beer glass and balance a disposable lighter on it. Set the lighter so that it's 50/50 hanging over the edge of the glass with the base/bottom of the lighter suspended over thin air. Also, ensure that the working end of the lighter is aimed towards the target(s) of the prank. Finally, before retreating to a safe distance (other bar), light the bottom of the disposable lighter using a second lighter/matches.

When the flame eats through the plastic and releases the fuel under pressure...well, I'm sure you can imagine the hilarity. I've been hit on the side of the head by one of these "mini RPG" attacks (it's a common prank in Army bars) and can confirm that it's extremely amusing. Not as funny as the classic "powdered CS tablet in the ashtray" gag (no pun!) but still worth a laugh.

Note: I'm in no way responsible for the results of anyone trying this jape. On your own head be it!

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Unless it's someone else that loses the eye.

There's a blood donor poster in the lifts at work right now that begins "Someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds."

I always add "Poor bastard!" when I see these.

Talking of which, some of you may have been lucky enough to live in a time or place so unregulated you could buy ammonia and iodine crystals. Mix them together and the slurry that precipitates is nitrogen tri-iodide, which is safe when wet, but after drying is so unstable that simply looking at it will make it detonate. My father showed me how to do that, leaving it to dry on a sheet of paper in the sun. When a fly would land on it - crack! It seems that when he was in the RE '39-'46 he painted some on the door handle of a sergeants' mess. Bloody lucky the victim kept his fingers, but I guess they were all a lot more comfortable around explosives at the time.

Ages ago, I worked at a Bombay Company™ store in a shopping mall. Us employees played pranks non-stop on each other. (We also damaged a lot of the merchandise.) My two co-workers were smokers, and they'd sneak a matchhead into the end of the other's cigarettes. Before long, they grew wary and checked each cigarette before lighting up. So I stole one of my bosses cigarettes, cut a slit with a box cutter about halfway down, buried three match heads, then sealed it up with a patch of roller paper and Elmer's glue. It blew up on him while enjoying a post-prandial smoke in a restaurant. His GF was trying to get him to quit and asked if I could booby-trap all of his packs.

The best prank was on this gal who was addicted to Godiva chocolate. I nabbed her giant, foil-covered easter bunny, removed the chocolate, filled it with crumbed candles in assorted colors, resealed the foil, remelted it in the microwave, then put it back in her bag. When she opened it she just stared at it for a long time -- it was bunny-shaped but all mottled green and yellow and orange and brown -- looked at us, then closed it up and put it away without saying a word.

A man goes to the doctor with his wife because she's acting odd, and after a barrage of tests, the sawbones says "Well, it's either Alzheimer's or AIDS, and I can't tell which one."

Bloke says "Well, iff you can't tell which one, what's your advice?"

"Take her somewhere she's been before, and if she comes back, don't fuck her!"

Read it back in college - I think it was part of the reading list for a Science Fiction class.

It's very good, but I think M. John Harrison's Nova Swing is better. Then again, Harrison is hard to beat.

Regarding Cherryh, those authors who write series with about 6,732,019 volumes don't do anything for me. They are, in my experience, the same stuff recycled over-and-over, even if there are different story arcs. The only authors I've read who have a modicum of success in this area are Robert "Uptown Top" Rankin and Terry Pratchett.

Brivo stands up, takes his strides of and throws them to her: "Wash these, y' bitch!"

Light is one of those rare books where I'm simply in awe of the talent needed to have written it. It's right up there with Bester's The Stars My Destination, Zelazny's Lord of Light, Farmer's The Riders of the Purple Wage, and Bank's The Wasp Factory.

(OK, I cheated there - The Wasp Factor isn't sci-fi, but Banks wrote a lot of great sci-fi and it's his best book.)

They are, in my experience, the same stuff recycled over-and-over, even if there are different story arcs. The only authors I've read who have a modicum of success in this area are Robert "Uptown Top" Rankin and Terry Pratchett.
Known Space? Culture? The Expanse?

Granted, with Burroughs you have a point.

I've been hit on the side of the head by one of these "mini RPG" attacks (it's a common prank in Army bars) and can confirm that it's extremely amusing. Not as funny as the classic "powdered CS tablet in the ashtray" gag (no pun!) but still worth a laugh.

Note: I'm in no way responsible for the results of anyone trying this jape. On your own head be it!
Talking of which, some of you may have been lucky enough to live in a time or place so unregulated you could buy ammonia and iodine crystals. Mix them together and the slurry that precipitates is nitrogen tri-iodide, which is safe when wet, but after drying is so unstable that simply looking at it will make it detonate. My father showed me how to do that, leaving it to dry on a sheet of paper in the sun. When a fly would land on it - crack! It seems that when he was in the RE '39-'46 he painted some on the door handle of a sergeants' mess. Bloody lucky the victim kept his fingers, but I guess they were all a lot more comfortable around explosives at the time.
The purple cloud released is Iodine vapour. You don't want too much of that: I think septic pneumonia was the description of the effects.

I see that the BBC Radio 4 currently has an audio documentary up about Christopher Hitchens.

BugMeNot has usernames & passwords for BBC.com - but if anyone has tips on the best way to download it as an mp3 - let me know.

There's a blood donor poster in the lifts at work right now that begins "Someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds."

I always add "Poor bastard!" when I see these.

Well judging by his picture , Hunt might need blood quite regularly,...

PZ suffers a moment of colour blindness to pursue the incel in the basement angle.

There are only certain moments when PZ forgets to use describing words (“a man”)

Is anyone surprised that PZ finds himself so sympatico with the killer - that he knows just what he was thinking and feeling at the time?

Full Qantas Boeing 737 Max starts its inevitable descent, and a young woman stands up and screams "We're all going to die, and I've never been with a man! Won't somebody help me feel like a real woman before I die?"

Brivo stands up, takes his strides of and throws them to her: "Wash these, y' bitch!"
I’ll let you know how it goes.
