Re: 1190: "Time"

I wonder if the flags are made out of sand. They can't be: we saw Megan carrying them around in 163. But they could be made of ice...... :twisted: I just want it to be clear that I am a Sandist. I do not subscribe to Iceism. Ah, but where do you stand on java/lava/bacon/semencancercaffeinebabies?

Keep thinking they're swimming in a lake of coffee surrounded by snow if that's what you want, but I promise you that you are wrong. Wait for it, and you'll see. To be fair, Randall's in Boston, so that is a completely plossible scenario. I've got More Than a Feeling that might be possible. Yeah. A...

Re: 1067: "Pressures"

He claims tesla invented radar in 1917 and tried to sell it to the navy for use in WWI and was blocked by Edison, mentions that it would have been useful for submarine warfare and says that he hopes Edison gets hit by a Nazi torpedo.

just as terribly thought out as carrying liquid nitrogen in an elevator. (if it spills it will evaporate, push all the oxygen to the top of the lift and kill everyone inside due to it being 270,000 times compressible and heavier than air.) It takes several minutes to lose consciousness without oxyg...

The primary language difference I agree with Brits about is "aluminium", as all other recent elements end in "ium". No one says "Helum", "Sodum", "Uranum", "Lithum", and so on. And platinium? ...and my favourite, Lanthanium. Don't forget M...
