Just dump it in the Sea, it'll be fine
Why hasn't this documentary (shown in Germany and France) ever been broadcast in the UK?
I wonder.
Oh, it's about nuclear waste and the shockingly stupid attitude of the Nuclear industry and the governments and scientists that support it.
Nuclear power stations, safe as houses.
Nuclear waste disposal/storage/management.
Don't ask.
No, seriously, don't ask.

Story
Tagline
Mobile tech obsessive, martial arts fan, mad fitness training and general geeky sci fi lover
Introduction
I'm mildly obsessed with martial arts, cutting edge fitness and strength training, gadgets of all sorts, dogs, sci-fi and tech. (So if you're the same, feel free to circle me - sure we'll click)

If you're interested in general nonsense then add me to a silly people Circle.

If you're interested in X-Factor, reality TV and that sort of thing then I'm probably not someone with much to offer.

Geek, nerd, fitness fan, follower of science and lover of gadgets probably apply more.

Servant to a Jack Russell.

Trying to learn iOS development but failing miserably as I find my iPhone terribly dull.

Learning more about Android development. Failing less miserably but yeah, there is a fragmentation issue that fries my brain cells a bit.
Bragging rights
Learning Android and iOS programming by resurrecting some ancient BASIC skills. Used to be able to do one armed press ups. Might still be able to.

A stalwart of Soho. I can't remember a time when Chiang Mai hasn't been there. Defiantly remaining the same despite the many trends and changes hitting Thai cuisine in London, Chang Mai is a mildly guilty pleasure when you're after an old fashioned Pad Thai. The Sai Oua is mouth searing delight and the sweet iced tea is teeth rottingly delicious

If you love books you'll want to visit Cecil Court and Goldsboro books. Renowned for first editions, rare books and genuinely bizarre esoterica, this small patch of London is the defiant enclave fighting off the Amazonification of reading.

Good place to get a fix of Danish fast food. Apparently healthier iteration of the cholesterol soaked versions you can get elsewhere. Quite nice, tasty bun and juicy hot dog. Stick with the remoulade.

The best training facility in SE16. You're not going to get fluffy towels and members posing and posting selfies whilst training. A good thing in my opinion. Instead you get a lot of equipment, a well laid out space and a serious fitness environment. Could do with a bigger stretching area and more exotic training kit, but all in all a great value for money and no contract to get tied into.

The "not so secret, anymore" way to get top notch theatre tickets at half the price. Lots of queuing is involved, it does involve a touch of luck if you're after a specific show but go with a few alternatives in mind and you'll save a lot of money.

Defiantly stuck with kitsch surroundings, copious amounts of beer and enough food that could send a bear into a coma, there is something strangely charming about this pub / restaurant. The food isn't great but quite nice in an old fashioned way. Pricey, but that's Scandinavia for you. Worth a visit if you're hungry enough to eat half a cow and have room to wash it all down with a bit of booze.
