Chewbacca was stopped at the airport and they took his lightsabre cane away

They gave it back to him in the end, probably worth a small fortune, and he carried on but not before tweeting to his Wookie fans.

Swords

Given that people have been making concealed swords in canes for a couple hundred years, it's not a big jump to concealing one in a white cane.

On second thought, why should I care what the UK police do or don't do? Let the UK citizens deal with their own lunacy.

Oh wait, for some reason, they try to export their lunacy to the USA.........

LIKE THEIR GLOBAL WARMING LUNACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure why you posted the link, but my comment falls into the category of a private joke between Neil and me because of something he said some time ago.

you brought it public without a public explanation of it...hence, your lack of including people in on the details leaves your post to lead people to believe you committed a typo or just don't know any different. It is the logical conclusion in the case of your post.

You should know more than anyone here...perception is everything...

I would put (NT) after it like we used to have to do but, as the first line of the body is always visible in the wondrous TR Water Cooler that we now have, it's a bit tautological so I won't bother.

Nothing to do with us!

In 1859, Irish Physicist John Tyndall published the first details of the ability of CO2 to absorb infra-red radiation. Swedish scientist, Svante Arrhenius, was the first scientist to calculate the size of the greenhouse effect caused by man-made CO2 in 1896. Milutin Milankovi?, an all-round smart git of a Serb, worked out the effects of the solar cycles in 1932 thus allowing Arrhenius's work to be expanded upon and modelled.

Fracking marvellous! You are hanging onto a cliff edge by your fingertips...

And your point is?

by maxwell edison In reply to Nothing to do with us!

I have very strong fingertips, I want you to know.

And since you mentioned it, all the brouhaha over fracking is a bunch of bunk as well. ( insert chuckle smiley face here )

Well, of course it is

by neilb@uk In reply to And your point is?

Are you aware that if one of your citizens falls ill and the doctor wishes to check whether that illness is attributable to one of the constituents of the cocktail of chemicals in the fracking liquid, the doctor can ask to see the composition of the cocktail used in the area.

However, the doctor must sign a gagging order so that, even if the patient's problems can be proven to be directly caused by the fracking liquid leaching into the ground water that doctor can tell neither the patient nor any other physician about it!

So, nobody knows how ground water is being affected because nobody is allowed to know because nobody knows what is going into the ground so nobody can tell if it's coming out again.

I wish you joy of it. I think you are in for some nasty surprises. And you won't even know who to blame. There are exceptions in the Safe Drinking Water Act and a good chunk of your environmental laws for oil and gas firms. How dumb are you all?

Except for foreign oil companies, of course...

We, at least, have a government order that forces the companies doing fracking trials to release details of the composition of the fracking liquids used so that it can be monitored and they can be made to clean it up.
