  2. 66 cu.m./second 200sq.m. cross sectional area flow is 66/200 m/sec or approx 1 ft/second. 5cm is 2" 7.5cm is 3"
  3. the term "police incident" always makes me smile - it suggests that the police have been misbehaving,

  5. I am surprised it is as much as that. If the river is 100m wide and 2m deep, that would represent a speed of about 1ft per second. Up here in Abingdon there is no perceptible flow at all. Last winter the maximum flow was about 2ft per second.

  10. the late SWMBO used to keep two jars on the hallstand. Any change that might prove useful for slot machines, parking meters, etc. went in one, and periodically taken out and kept in the car ready for use; everything else (up to the value of 10p) in the other. The local charity shop was always happy to take the contents of the second jar.

  19. without it the holy grail known as "GROWTH" would cease to exist, leading to the spivs in the City of London jumping out of their office windows. now, that would never do. not only Tory party policies, but the whole of the world economy needs to pause and then re-set. Perhaps it will take a war or a significant climate crisis to kick it off. ................... hang on, we have such an opportunity right now.

  21. I have SCUBA dived extensively in Oman and Malta. Even in the wave-disturbed coastal waters there is still a well-defined boundary between the upper levels of water and the lower. It is clearly visible, almost like you would see if you dived into a layer of cooking oil that was floating on water, and It is much colder once you pass through the boundary.
  22. if DEFRA can feed grey squirrels contraceptives then why can't the Home Office do the same for humans?
  23. what is a "26 foot boat"? hopefully not an oil rig lifeboat.
  24. the concept of a nanny state springs to mind. it seems to me that skools teach kids that they automatically deserve respect (as opposed to having to earn it as we were tort in the good old days) and foster a sense of entitlement that makes the kids think they are immortal and not vulnerable to the possible dangers out there. it is not society's responsibility to act as substitute parents when the parents are not fit to own a puppy let alone a child. ....................... right wing reactionary? not really, I just believe in Darwinism.
