Re: 10,000 pushups

The fun part begins on the second week for sure! I'd do it with you if i wasn't cycling 60-100 miles a week ~.~ Try ~45 miles in a morning :P Wait, don't... I think I slept from about midday to about 9 the following day when I did that... :? I was lured into that cycling trip by a visit to a velodr...

This day feels like it's going to be boring... Only 10 every hour :?

Tomorrow is a total rest day... Just 5 every 90 minutes. Then on Monday I'll see how much I've improved! :D

Re: Can you produce [X] in less than 15 seconds?

Nope (took me about 20 minutes to realise I've been ninja'd... :( )
There are two framed paintings though... Three if you count a glass-covered and hung thing as framed.

A toothbrush (In the room you're in)

Re: Child Labor in Washington

The problem is that it isn't them saving money, it's that they are having to work so that their family can earn one minimum wage...

I'm going to see how long it takes us to get to 7,000 :)
Shouldn't be longer than a week, as that's what the program calls for from me alone :shock:

Re: Tottenham Riots

What's irrational about using general anarchy to get luxury goods for free? Immoral, yes, but irrational? Because the odds of being put in jail for several years likely make it not worth it to gain, say, £500 worth of stuff. And that's likely to be at the higher end for looting an electronics store...

Re: Tottenham Riots

I've got to give kudos to the restraint shown by police - here in the U.S., it would have been closer to twenty shots fired, with maybe 4 hitting the target, and probably another couple in the cab driver. Except that somehow a police bullet ended up lodged in a radio being carried by another member...

Tomorrow's gonna be hard... 15 every 45 minutes. And I'm terrible at pushups :P
That's gonna be nearly 300 overall tomorrow.
Bring it on! :D

Just worked it out - first week is 1,024 pushups for me :P
Assuming 12 hours per day.

Re: Favorite home experiments

Quite an entertaining one I've done in the lab was to bubble the gas from the taps into a washing up liquid/water mix.
Loads of natural gas bubbles, add one lit splint - whoosh. Lots of fire :)
Not much of an "experiment" really, but certainly fun.

Re: 0931: "Lanes"

My mum got breast cancer years ago, had her course of chemo, and it went well. I actually feel pretty bad that since that happened when I was quite small, so I didn't really understand what was going on - and I haven't really asked/been told what the deal is... This comic is brilliant... To be hones...

Bad Company 2 all the way. Can't wait to Battlefield 3...
Although I could be tempted onto Forza 3, but I'm not very good at that.
