Re: Elon Musk

I'm not convinced we're half alien at all, I don't think we need to suppose that creatures had to land here to give us a kick start and I don't see any evidence of it. There is an interesting fact though & it is that apparently all the atoms in this world are constantly on the move & quite a few tha...

Re: Elon Musk

Settlement on Mars or something similar may happen one day, gnads, whether through Elon Musk or not. But to reduce the risk of human extinction by establishing such a colony is extremely long range thinking as I predict that even if a colony was established, it would be reliant on help from earth fo...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

It's not very likely to happen, Rosie.
Such a big group & all trouble makers can't be that common. Most people go on a cruise to relax & enjoy themselves.

Re: Elon Musk

I don't know if he is the one behind it, but I have been reading about the possibility of aircraft that in the future will fly at great heights, on the verge of space, drastically cutting travelling time. Bring it on. One thing that really turns me off about travel is the long distance stuff where, ...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

The trouble isn't really the ships or crew, it is some feral passengers. One thing I have heard is that ships are quite strict though. I suppose they have to be as they are at sea & the other passengers can't escape. Same as on an airline. I've heard a lot of reports of passengers being put off at t...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

They sound like the family from hell. I hope they face charges as it sounds as if they threatened other passengers who told them to put a lid on it. One thing I think we can guarantee & that is none of them will ever be accepted by a cruise line again. bet their names go on the blacklist. Don't worr...

Re: 17 Dead and 11 more wounded

I think the Sates is a lost cause as far as gun controls are concerned even if laws were passed today it would take generations to get a grip on the situation with the number of guns floating around in the population. I don't think it is worth talking about gun control as such. The majority of Amer...

Re: 17 Dead and 11 more wounded

It's a shame some of these dysfunctional students have got the idea now that to 'get back' at others, the right way to do it is to go into the school, firing. Schools have traditionally been fairly open environments where people can just walk in & up to the office or even walk round to wait outside ...

Re: Want to go to Mars?

Done a quick research. Human being's are the biggest threat to any planet. Folk need to get their act together on Earth before bogging off to other planets. Get real now, whip. :D Humans already have their act together. This is it. It's not going to change. We're imperfect, get used to it. If peopl...

Re: Armed Robbery

I think double sided knives aren't allowed to be carried here either. I don't think the aim of thieves is always to make a massive hit. The days of trying to rob banks etc are long gone. These days they are after soft targets-a few freebies from the shop, a bit of cash. If you're 16 or 17 and can ge...

Re: Want to go to Mars?

I wouldn't know exactly how they would do it, gnads. I think it was just speculation on what they 'might' be able to do. I think they were hoping for plants to grow under domes & eventually help out. Whether they will achieve it I have no idea. Most likely they will find some other way to survive on...

Re: Armed Robbery

Hold ups at petrol stations etc are so common here they don't make the news. I'm on a Facebook page about crimes in the local area so I see mention of them. They're not in what you would call rough areas either, often on biggish intersections where there are a lot of escape routes. We also have the ...

Re: Want to go to Mars?

I'd be sure there will be a lot of people willing & eager to go, for the adventure. There have already been people who have lived in isolation for a year or two, like cavemen & women, as part of experiments. I remember thinking that I wouldn't be keen to spend that amount of time away from everyday ...

Re: Fake News

Pretty brazen lie when you think about it. The people present could easily have been verified, you would think. It looks as if he got caught out anyway.
You're right, it was hearsay.

Re: Want to go to Mars?

Bottom line is ... what's the point of putting people in space ... or even talking of colonising another planet? We haven't been managing this one too well lately ... what chance somewhere in space where survival would be reliant on supplies from earth? Humans are never going to be perfect, we're a...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

Wow, you must be up to Princess rewards by now, things like free internet time. I can't recall exact details but I think after 50 accumulated days of cruising, they start to kick in & after about 150? days, it includes free laundry, priority boarding and so on. I always thought that the laundry woul...

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

It's very, very rare for any of the English boardies here to ever make a personal comment, & the fact that Ralph has speaks volumes. It means he has had enough. Maybe tone it down a bit, Max.
