Re: Looking for music by good *non-english* singers

Jacques Brel. I don't really have any words to describe how wonderful he was. He put so much emotion into his music.

Re: Metal

I would like to leave a link here to the first song to be released from the upcoming Machine Head album.
I think it's rather good, I like that they've gone in a slightly slower, heavier direction. This has made me really excited for the new album - shame it's not out until September.

Re: Metals don't reflect UV?

Shining light onto a metal causes the electrons in the metal to oscillate according to the classical dipole oscialltor model - essentially there is a driving force (the electric field of the incident radiation), a damping force and a resonant oscillation. We can calculate the dielectric permittivity...

Re: Head Hair

The colour you get from henna depends on the colour you start with - if your hair is light blonde, you're more likely to come out with a more orangey colour, whereas if you start with light-mid brown it's more likely to be auburn. It also depends on the length of time you leave the dye on for, what ...

Re: Head Hair

That's a fantastic colour! I'm a Lush henna addict, and from my experience the colour will tone down after a week or so - which I was actually sad about because I loved how firey it was. If you keep using it though, it will darken the red, so now you've done it once you probably don't need to worry ...

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

Luckily I have dreads and never have to cut my hair - I'm very much a fan of not having to pay someone to faff around with it for a bit and end up cutting too much off. It also means I can pretty much roll out of bed and my hair doesn't look any more messy than usual, which is very useful. Although ...

No Worcester applicants? Shame on you all, you're missing out, we have ducks. Hope everyone's interviews went well (now I feel old) and if there are any meetups planned in the near future I'd definitely be up for it.
