  1. At the Sydney Olympics somebody said "Who would have guessed that the Dutch are the world's greatest party animals?" There is obviously more to the Dutch than meets the eye.
  2. Different people have different tastes. I like coffee but tea does nothing for me. Many of my female friends like green tea whereas to me it is just dirty water.
  3. I have heard of people with a 'death wish' but those guys have taken it to a whole new level.
  4. Judith Durham, lead singer of The Seekers. Died of natural causes aged 79. Had the sweetest of voices.
  5. Annie Lennox wears a man's suite better than ninety-five percent of men do!
  6. James Lovelock. Born 26th July 1919, died 26th July 2022. He died on his 103rd birthday. Scientist best known for his book 'The Gaia Hypothesis'. but prolific in many other fields.
  7. The cat is nature's masterpiece. - Leonardo da Vinci
  8. Monty Norman, a British composer who wrote the iconic theme music for the James Bond films, has died, aged 94.
  9. In this context 'best' means 'personal favourite'. After thinking for a while I want to add Barney Miller and The Big Bang Theory to my American favourites and Red Dwarf to my British.
  10. I was a member of a group that was led by Niels Bohr, after the test in Alamogordo, that was very much opposed to the use of this new weapon on civilian cities. … But by and large we were in a minority, but a rather distinguished minority. -M ark Oliphant
  11. I was being a bit flippant. I am aware of things like the ECKO project.
  12. A balloon in orbit would go POP.
  13. Do a Google image search and find the photos of Gladys Ingle climbing from one aircraft to another with no parachute.
