To prove this try to open up your ice box fast enough to see the light before the darkness.

Finally, someone that is not me, brings up the topic of gravity, a word banned in the Rivets houshold...but the thread drifts to bottoms and the gasses that emanate from them. One will never get One's Nobel prize at this rate.


Oh, and Homer Simpson's fridge. Frikkin 'ell...


Okay, here's one for you. If the fridge was suddenly to disappear just after you'd opened the door, would the light from the salami sandwich on the third shelf, still reach your eyes and make your mouth water?

If PPRuNe closed down JetBlast, how would you spend the rest of your life?

The boss has done that in the past. We all slowly melted into a greasy puddle. Please don't give him ideas.

I would have to go elsewhere to pretend to be a pilot.

Why does a bacon butty taste so much better with some brown sauce on it?

Is there an optimal quantity of sauce vis-a-vis the amount of bacon?

Have the scientific community been remiss in their research or have they found the answer and are selfish enough to keep it a secret?

Earth shattering question :

Why do women think that men are still un-evolved, yet, after 30,000 years of evolution THEY(women) still think the silent treatment is a punishment?

Why can you recall the look, the feel and the sound of Bacon butties but not the smell or the taste. We know it is good but we can't imagine the small or taste through our memory.

God must have a twisted sense of humour. He's also the one who gave men nipples.

I can recall the smell of a bacon butty, but only in my dreams. That's why I sometimes wake up drooling.

So many technological advances but no one can deliver smells with television or movies.

In time, RT, they will.

We see the world via the visible section of the electromagnetic spectrum, but we smell in infrared. Therein lies the clue.

Get thee to the lav.
Ah! A gentleman. They're very rare around here.

The speed of dark is the opposite of the speed of light, thus -300 x 10-6 m/sec

Except in the case of helicopters, when the earth repels and thus keeps the contraption airborne.

German children sing a little verse which goes:

Roughtly translated, "A burp is a stomach wind, that doesn't find the way to your arsehole".

Hope this helps solve the mystery !

So what if you took Concorde out of mothballs fired her up took off and flew her as fast as she could go along the equator in the opposite direction to the Earths rotation what would happen? or for that matter what would happen if you flew in the same direction of the Earths rotation?

I suspect, Mr Rivets, that in this case your entire Salami Sandwich would flash in front of your eyes.

(It might work better with a 'Past'Rami sandwich. Ok, I'm sure I had a coat when I came in).

One a day will do

So what happened to the miracle protein pill we were promised by the scientists back in the good old 'Atomic' days?
'one a day will provide all of your nutritional needs' no more washing up or heavy shopping bags for Mum!

My cat now 11 years old has been eating the cat equivalent since the day she could eat solid food, crunchy dry cat food (leading brand) full of all the important things she needs to keep her healthy. Available in a variety of flavours, she likes the Chicken or Salmon variety. (mind you she scoffs more than one at a sitting!)

So if we can produce it for cats?
