Is she a Carboniferous Chonderite a Achondrite or indeed a Nickle Iron one?


He sounds more like a opening move in chess than a MP.
His new name will be ready shortly.

More likely to derive from the German word for goblin or evil spirit, 'kobald' and the Greek word for mine, 'cobalos'.

Eating Petai makes you burp. Eating Petai Sambal makes your breath smell, especially if there's too much Belachan in it.

Just another hour for me braised steak methinks, the smell is tantalising, I should perhaps have given more thought to having me oven on all day when the weather is hot like today.

But it is supposed to be good for diabetes. Do diabetics burp a lot?

I've forgotten which thread I'm posting to. Sorry if it's the ghost story. I have to go to bed, but no matter how briefly, I have again reached ten, errr, pounds won by Aunt Mary and the mods haven't had time to notice.

Small victories are the sweetest.

au revoir

Cool

My heating oil tank holds 250 gallons and my aquarium holds 40 gallons of water. I've never got them mixed up, which is good for the fish (singular - not plural, he's a big fish!).

It makes me farkin mad. The birds in my garden, have been given a new table complete with a roof, it's repainted tastefully, and some sh-teawk has added markings on the roof.
Is this so that mother natures aviators have landing aids, who controls them anyway. I reckon there's a Robin with loudhailer. "Come in sparrow six QFE 1010mb's, visibility 100 metres and mind the rose bush
Barry the pidgeon don't need a tractor for push back orf the departure gate, silly b just falls off-- too many nuts. You know the other day, I reckon he was over his MAUW: WISH I had the camera, he did the bungee drop, got up airspeed and, Nap of the Earth out manouvred an English Apache Helicopter.

Maybe Capn PPRuNe know's the answers, what's your opinion Drapes?

'Ere, Singaporegirl, wot's this wiv kobald? That ain't no goblin. Wuz you thinking of Kobold?

What's the exchange rate between PPRuNe postingcount and the Euro? Drapes could be a millionaire by now. But I suppose Danny runs the bureau de change and has a nice wide rate spread.

Must take yer fish a long time to drink 40 gallons Ozzy, means yer don't have to fill the tank up so often I suppose.

fish Bob the Oscar

Bob's an Oscar (Astronotus ocellatus), had him since he was a nipper of 3 inches, now he's about 8 or 8.5 inches in length. He likes pellet fish food and every so often I give him a right treat of two dozen or so tuffys or goldfish. In fact there's one survivor in there with right now from last weekend's tuffy run.

Herr D, I need to do a 30%-50% water change each week as Bob craps like a rabbit, not a tortoise.

Ozzy

8 to 8 inches was wrong!

Ozzy, couldn't you train Bob to get out the tank and use one of those fish litter trays?.

How does the little 'You Are Here' arrow on some street maps know that you are going to be 'There' when you look at them? Does the little arrow move to show your location when you move away from the map. I suppose you could try looking at it from a long way away, with a telescope or the like, and see if the arrow knew where you were.....
