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?

If you haven't yet seen it, watch Episode 3 of Helen Czerski's Colour - The Spectrum of Science - one of the best science programmes ever!

Thanks, Alan, he has solved a problem for me with the draw slide idea, too obvious in retrospect!

Brilliant demo of maths in the solid world.

:pointlaugh:

When a steel framed restuarant near here burned down a main roof ridge H girder, probably 300 x 300 and 10mm thick, was sagging by about 2m in the middle over the kitchen area, once it was hot enough its own weight was evidently enough (or too much?). Not sure of the burning temp of cooking oil or natural gas.

Oops, probs with Google account, thought it was the linkl

Got there in the end by signing out of my Google account. I don't understand it either...

Brilliant stuff, that video, doubt that I will survive long enough for fabricated replacement hearts but, one day maybe...

Sci-fi gets more factual almost daily.
