    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    I wasn’t arguing about their opposition to the development of new (types of) nuclear power stations. But now that you’ve mentioned it, what reactor was that? I was asking how and why they would get in the way of maintenance. Read and understand the question before you reply.

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    The French Green Party is nowhere near successful enough to have an influence on national policy. And how and why exactly would they get in the way of maintenance anyway?

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    My battery tester needs a battery to test batteries, but its display seems to have gone wonky and now I can’t tell if the testing battery is low if I test it with another battery purely for testing purposes; never mind the batteries that I actually want to test. It’s leaving me testy, this.

    I finally found coffee at half past three in the afternoon. Things went uphill from there. I also saw what is easily my favourite prop at Paramount Studios. Durka durka! 😆

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    There’s so much empty space in Trump’s head that you might call HRC’s rent-free move into it the bargain of the century.

    Let's have a laugh

    I’m not really joking, but didn’t want to put this in Random Thoughts: I’ve got this idea that she held on long enough to see out the PM who had betrayed her (re: prorogation of parliament) and then was finally able to let go and be reunited with Philip.

    Random Thoughts....

    Yes, for two reasons: since the days of the clickwheel iPod, I have preferred playlists to sorting by artist's name, so I created a lot of them and never bothered to change this habit. And since, unlike artists, iTunes sorts playlists alphabetically including "The", I've got a bunch of music...
