Crossrail (established technology) was originally supposed to be finished in December 2018. Now unlikely to open until the spring, and probably won't be fully operational until mid-2022. Zero chance for this. Same argument as HS2 - why spend many billions reducing travel time for the mega rich betwe...

It is in my view correct to announce the result of an election BEFORE all the ballots have been counted, but only in certain circumstances. If after most of the ballots have been counted, one candidate has a large enough majority, that even if all the yet to be counted votes go against them they wi...

This has been puzzling me for years, to believe the constant conspiracy rants takes a special kind of stupid. For it to be slightly under half of the population is even more amazing. Trump's been saying that he's won close-run states where the votes haven’t even been fully counted yet. Anybody wh...

At any rate I do all my welding outside for good reason. 8) It's actually quite unusual for the HSE to issue Safety Alerts of this nature. The change is based on a solid scientific evidence, gathered over many years. They're not saying 'don't do welding'. They're saying that people should take sens...

Those silly frogs are really in a bind. They allow free speech to insult the Muslim's prophet stirring up the 'believers' having let millions of them into their country beforehand. The entire West is in a bind, us included. It's probably fair to say that most Muslims immigrants want to live exactly...
