There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

The bottle one makes me wonder if it just has to be bottles, but guess they're ubiquitous now. Any clear plastic container with a lid would work.

OK as far as it goes ( :wink: ) but why do the superconductors "hate" magnetic fields one might wonder. Perhaps that is so far into the quantum world that even the scientists don't know!

Wasn't happy with the lines of the field, as drawn, if they were supposed to be from the magnets shown, but then I am just fussy about such things . . .

check this out - I've been waiting to see this invention, ever since I watched "Back To The Future 2"

The implications are far reaching...

Yeah, great fun, but you might need a vehicle the size of a removal van to hold the power supply, refrigeration kit, and lots of superconducting (very expensive) alloy, with the current technology, to drive more than a few yards! Not to mention highly magnetic roads*.

It is not described as a quantum phenomenon because it works over large distances . . .

Pity, But wait a couple of hundred years and they may crack it.

*Hmm, how about superconducting linear motor roads and big magnets in the vehicle with . . . no, not yet!

Ah - I see Alan posted exactly the same video 3 months ago. Damnit - I must keep up to date - my sincere apologies Alan.
