  1. Re: The Moon Doesn't Exist Unless You're Looking....

    If all this is keeping you awake at night, read Adam Becker's 'What is Real?' (https://www.hodder.co.uk/books/detail.page?isbn=9781473661356)

    You don't need a PhD to follow him and you will find...
  2. Re: The Moon Doesn't Exist Unless You're Looking....

    Interesting video, but this stuff isn't new. It was 1935 when Einstein pointed out what he regarded as an obviously absurd consequence of quantum mechanics, with its "spooky action at a distance". In...

    Re: Aluminium joinery recommendations?

    Can't help with a supplier recommendation from Wellington, but if you are thinking of a double-glazed door (generally a good idea, even in Auckland) spend a bit more money and get thermal-break...

    Re: They are just not satisfied

    This inconsistent behaviour of people is not confined to straight or curly hair, or large or small breast sizes. A while back I drove from Taupo to Napier and was constantly held up by be being...
  8. Re: The Government made me get up an houre earlier this morning

    The fading-curtains syndrome has been around for a number of years but it actually need not be as silly as it sounds. Consider a house-proud lady who is a creature of habit, living in a house with...

    Ruapehu peeks through

    Drove across the Desert Road yesterday through rain that made the car feel like a submarine. The sun came through briefly to give just enough time to shoot this photo of Ruapehu, then the clouds came...

    Incidentally I quite agree with you about those pictures of cooling towers. They're rather silly and quite irrelevant.

    [QUOTE=B.M.;1278542]You’re right, it is simple enough.

    Re: I'm Sorry ...

    It seems simple enough. If you build a sealed greenhouse and enhance the interior CO2 levels, plants grow faster. What's to explain?

    What does it have to do with global warming? Think carefully...

    Ban? Oh, come on, lighten up.
    BM's secret weapon is a sense of humour - it gives complete immunity against righteous indignation.

    Re: PB Tech

    Never had a problem with stuff from PB Tech. They are definitely the cheapest for inkjet cartridges - worth going across town to buy them. $28 at PB Tech vs. $43 at JB Hifi.

    Re: Was It Real Or Fake News?

    Wow - 49 years ago, it seems like yesterday.

    We listened to a live radio link at work, and it seemed to take forever before Neil Armstrong climbed out and did his "One small step..." routine.
