Go to an air show this year.

The only remaining flying Vulcan is being grounded, this October will almost certainly be the last time that a Vulcan will fly. If you don't know what it is, or if you've never seen one, find a nearby air show that it is appearing in, and go see it.

Apparently the Qatar World Cup migrant worker death rate is not what it has been widely reported to be. I'll be listening to this programme this afternoon:
http://www.open.edu/openlearn/whats-on/ou-on-the-bbc-more-or-less-hpv-vaccine-qatar-migrant-workers-and-chocolate-diets
Tim Harford and the More or Less team investigate the numbers behin the side-effects of the HPV vaccine, deaths of migrant workers in Qatar and look at the story behind the chocolate experiment...

At the bottom of the left side of my Gmail page there is the first line of a chat message that I sent to someone about a year ago. I have no idea why that message is so special that it has to be always there on my Gmail page. Any suggestions as to how I might be able to remove it?

Ah, yes, I found an option to "archive" it. Clearly I wasn't looking hard enough, thanks. I'd have thought that these things should "archive" themselves after a while.

Internet doens't get why the rape of a young virgin is worse than all those other things on the show? Not really surprised, sadly.

I don't think the show was wrong. The world is a terrible place, terrible things happen, and it was not shown in such a way as to justify or sanitize the act. I just think that the outrage over the reaction was wrong.

Why is BBC News saying that the local time in Athens is 09:35 when it should be 10:35 (2 hours ahead of UK)?

I'm surprised and saddened to hear about the problems at The Chaosium, and interested to see how Greg and Sandy get things back on track.
 
More solid Chaosium Inc. background directly from Greg Stafford! Good questions by the great Shannon Appelcline.

One of my nieces was playing Towers of Hanoi with 5 coins, and after a couple of attempts she did it in 31 moves. I asked her, and her sister, how long they thought it would take to play a perfect game with 64 pieces if you could make one move every second. They guessed about an hour. It was a bit unfair to reveal just how wrong they were, because our minds are not really built to cope with concepts like that. How long do you think it would take?

Even Dr Who only had to do the 10 ring version. cf, Trilogic Game, Dr Who and The Celestial Toymaker.
