Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

I've just seen a goth over the age of 40. My question is: do the rest of them just die young, or do they look in the mirror one morning and think "get a f***ing grip"?  

P&B goths: have you ever died young?

There's a goth in my work who must be nearing his 50's. He's only just stopped dying his hair black.  Really nice guy though.

Why do TV shows and films that have space travel elements always show spaceships with the trustees (fnarr) on the whole time? 

My limited understanding of it is that because space is a vacuum, once you're at your desired speed, you don't need thrust as there are no frictional forces to slow you down. You only then need thrust to change course, speed up  or reverse thrust to slow down/stop.

What always baffles me about shows/films with spaceships, do they have to hire two spaceships to do the external shot of the main spaceship?

Faster than light travel requires the mass on an entire galaxy converted into energy to create and maintain a wormhole, which means a pretty hefty mpg.

Nonsense. You just go into the red bit on the speedometer.

Thats what my wife thinks anyway.

Presumably you meant 'thrusters'. And as I can't think of any double-entendres involving the word 'trustees' I'm assuming you originally typed 'thrusters' and autocorrect fucked you up.

Thrusters (fnarr) is indeed what I meant!

They use a drone camera for the outside shots surely?

Actually that nearly happened in 1969. When it became clear that America was going to win the race to the Moon the Russians switched the focus of their space programme to space stations, so to fill in time until the first station was ready they launched three Soyuz capsules on consecutive days intending that two would dock and the third would film it. However something went wrong and the docking was cancelled.

Is there a chippy in balloch?

 

I did try this one some years ago when passing through Balloch. and it was first class.

Italian chippys in the Glasgow/West of Scotland area are generally pretty good. :
