EPL is back, but are there better, safer options?

EPL is back, but are there better, safer options?

Yes the EPL has joined the AFL and NRL and is back. Now, Australia has done brilliantly in containing COVID-19, and this is why the NRL and AFL is back (albeit without spectators). But the problem in the UK is that there are still hundreds of people dying every day! All it takes is just one player or a member of staff that have been present during these games to fall ill with the Corona virus…and what if they die…? – it will be all back to square one again, putting everything backwards…not forgetting that someone would have died. This virus is ever so... [Read the full story]

Hydrogen from urine

Hydrogen from urine

Currently, most commercially available hydrogen is collected by reforming natural gas with steam. That means fossil fuels are still in the mix, which is a serious black mark against hydrogen use for fuel. While it’s possible to extract hydrogen from water, the process is rather energy intensive and isn’t yet commercially viable. Gerardine Botte of Ohio University believes she may have one possible solution. Instead of cracking hydrogen away from its tight bond in water, the University has demonstrated that it takes much less energy to extract hydrogen from urine, whether that’s synthetic... [Read the full story]

Keith Richards best ‘fuck-off’ riffs

Keith Richards best ‘fuck-off’ riffs

It’s not the skull ring, the elegantly wasted appearance or the chemically-enchanced bloodstream that does it – although that all helps – but the fact that he has an unerring knack of hoovering up pretty much all of the greatest guitar riffs ever written. But what are the candidates? He’s cheated death more times than can be imagined..so, here are some of my personal selections – and believe me, it’s only the beginning. 12‘Start Me Up’ One of Keith’s... [Read the full story]

Adam the Atheist

Adam the Atheist

In today’s world, people are obsessed with looking aesthetically pleasing, Ridiculous plastic-surgery goes on in Hollywood, to the back streets of Thailand…and beyond. Early Christians, Bible writers…even God and Jesus were no different. They confused physical purity with spiritual purity. But basically, they were against physical disability. If you were handicapped or dis-figured in any way…you weren’t going to be allowed into Heaven. As you know, I don’t believe in God, but this is a very un-Christian-like act that can only be compared to the wicked people... [Read the full story]

Why would a gorgeous girl fall for a Nugly?

Why would a gorgeous girl fall for a Nugly?

Some blokes just seem to punch way above their weight when it comes to dating hot girls.   Is it that good looking girls seem to be charitable or even a bit dim? This is highly unlikely. What nobody seems to have considered is that such luck in love is down to something far simpler. Maybe girls just like the person,...

Alfred Hitchcock and his Birds

Behind the camera, his pendulous lips exhaling bad breath and extraordinarily obscene jokes in a lugubrious Cockney accent, stood the corpulent figure of Alfred Hitchcock, acknowledged as cinema’s master of murder, mayhem and suspense. In front of the camera, poised, elegant, remote, and seemingly unattainable,...
