Lawrence Leung's Choose Your Own Adventure

I haven't posted to the forum in ages, but there is a new show in Australia called "Lawrence Leung's Choose Your Own Adventure" that I think most readers of xkcd would love. Larence is a nerdy guy who decides to try and do all those things he wanted to do as a child; more information at th...

Akula, are you familiar with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or the Stern Review? I think you need to do some more research.

I saw a televised discussion about this issue and some people in the end drank some from Singapore where they use the same process. The verdict? "Tastes like water"

It really should be a non issue as all water is recycled from something.

I won a Brahma hat by drinking three bottles, and it was such a nice hat that I had another three so I could give the second hat to a cute girl.

Re: Ballarat?

I don't mean to point out the obvious, but... there's a town called Ballarat? Man, the founders of that town must have been pretty lonely. /I'm sorry It is an Aboriginal word meaning "a nice place for a rest" or something like that. There is a lake called Lake Wendouree in Balllarat that ...

I agree with thomasjmaccoll that Scotland is being seriously under rated by people. I lived in Edinburgh for a couple of years and absolutely loved it. I am afraid to go back for fear that I would never leave, but I would probably choose Scotland as the country to spend the end of my days.

I live in Ballarat too, and I would highly recommend Melbourne as the premier location in Australia; it has the best music scene, arts, fashion, comedy, architecture, pubs and sport of the major Australian cities.

I would possibly consider it. I am a non American citizen twice over (I have dual Irish and Australian citizenship). I once asked a girl with dual Dutch and American citizenship if she would consider marrying me so we could get four citizenships. It helped that it was on the beach at Cannes during t...

The British Government has instigated a full ecconomic analysis into the full costs relating to climate change, and early reports suggests that the cost of doing nothing is going to completely blow the cost of action out of the water.

I feel nervous in shops when I stand near or in the sensor region. I try and move so that I am always outside its range but probably only make myself look a little derranged. Which is possibly true.

I would consider going to Sydney for such a party too, especially if it coincides with Essendon playing there (that is a sporting team for those not au fait with Australian Rules Football).

I am not sexually attracted to anyone in my family either. It looks like humanity is doomed. I find that quite a nice thought, all in all.

Hang on, I think I made a mistake somewhere there...
Biology was my worst science, but I do believe that mutations will help with survival of this impending cataclysm. I think we're on to something!

Extra toes would rock, but probably not as much as extra fingers. I might even learn to type with more than two fingers if I had 16 in total. The least I can do is try and give my children that advantage.

As wisnij suggested, by manufacturing hydrogen in locations and time where solar or wind power are plentiful, this can be transported for use in fuels cells elsewhere.
