► What you can assert without evidence, I can dismiss without evidence
► When you argue with idiots you risk being dragged down to their level and beaten with experience.
► Conspiracism is a shortcut to the illusion of erudition

Yes, but you have to go to Stockholm to collect it.
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

"Sorry, what was that?"
"Pay attention." -> ADD
"Pay attention and calm down." -> ADHD

Hey, you!  "It's" with an apostrophe means "it is" or "it has."  "Its" without an apostrophe means "belongs to it."

We have a particular problem in S Wales, stems from one doctor causing a bit of a scare with MMR jabs. The result is an outbreak of measles. I notices it got some attention as a scare tactic to infect us with something from the jabs required to combat this.

Sometimes we get the same one, two at a time, under different names.  More commonly the same one serially under different names.  In between HBs, we talk about Apollo amongst ourselves.

Speaking of talk, it's the 40th anniversary this year of the last man on the moon.

Something you not telling us? ;D
But, in all seriousness, it is a little sad. It passed so fast. One year it was the 40th anniversary of the first moon walk, and, in what doesn't feel that long, we have already passed the last one.
How long tell we walk again on any other world, let alone the moon?

Sadly, I do not. I hope they succeed, but I have very little faith in it actually happening.
