Are they sure it was just vandalism? When we had cables cut at our factory in northern Greece it was a local band of Gypsies who were stealing copper wire wherever they could find it, including off railway lines.

Put whatever you are bringing in the freezer right up to the point when you depart for the airport. Then wrap it in a few layers of newspaper and put it in your hold baggage. OK it won't stay completely frozen but it will stay cold enough that it won't go off. I think it's helped by the fact that th...

Perhaps that's why I keep getting strange looks. I always have the back to the left and drape my left arm over it. Maybe this has some significance like wearing a single earring in the left or right ear?

Re: 'pet' hates

Mine is the traditional kafeneio wooden chair. This must be the most uncomfortable chair ever designed,apart from the wooden legs which cut into your own legs they are also too small for the average posterior. Sat through three games of Rugby at our local kafeneio on sunday and there was no way I c...

I think him indoors missed the point, Phaedra. There are plenty of reserves with current projected demand BUT nuclear has been promoted as a solution to carbon emissions. If, purely as a thought exercise, you replaced all oil, gas and coal fired power stations in the world with nuclear, thus reducin...

It was James Whale on Sky News. The problem with that scenario is we might get a BNP / SNP / Plaid Cymru government!! An interesting coalition I suppose ? Jon You are correct it was James Whale. Mostly I disagree with his views but this one struck a cord. I have maintained for some time that I woul...

I heard an interesting comment the other day. Someone suggested that at the next election everybody in every constituency should vote for the candidate most likely to unseat the sitting member, whatever that meant in terms of political party, and tell them that that is what they are doing because of...

I saw a comment a little time ago, unfortunately I cannot find the reference, that said if we could magically convert every power station in the world to nuclear tomorrow then the known reserves of uranium would run out in 20 years. Like every other natural resource, we would find more but again the...

My OTENET connection, which is usually very reliable, got a bit iffy a few days ago. Kept disconnecting for no apparent reason and sometimes failed to reconnect first time. Seems to have recovered now. Never did find out why.

Jon (topdriller) Lets begin with A for new oilfields: Amazon and Alaska That should do for now. Ray ..and of course the Earth is infinitely large so it will never ever run out. Does it really matter if it is this decade or the next or the one after that. The whole world economy is based on growth. ...

If there is a strong signal at the top of the hill you could try a passive repeater. Buy two high gain aerials. Mount them on a pole at the top of the hill. Point one at the transmitter station. Point the other at your house. Connect them together with a short cable. Can't guarantee it will work but...

Like it or not, oil is a declining commodity and whilst it won't run out in our lifetime it will run out far sooner than many people think. Jon It doesn't have to "run out" Jon. What do you think happens when demand exceeds supply by 10 % or 20 %? This will occur long before it "runs...
