Re: Are they for real?

No I'm not. I'm specifically concentrating on the mechanism proposed by IPCC which is the greenhouse effect, and that is neither weather nor climate. And it is testable using long term averages. It...

Re: Patak's sauces - Are they REALLY made in the UK? - My curry still tastes inferior

Spicy Bites is great. There's a van vendor called Flavours of India roaming around up north that does a mean curry too. They'll be at the Tablelands Folk Festival this weekend.

Re: Are they for real?

Re: Are they for real?

I don't think too many scientists are responsible for it. There are a lot of computer modellers, politicians, ecoloonies and demagogues responsible for the transfer of a tenuous scientific hypothesis...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Can't agree with that. The number of times the ball got scooped back onto the Aussie side when NO ONE was on their feet in the ruck in the SA/AUS game was unbelievable. Pocock has a strategy, he...

The good thing about scientific theories is that whether they are wrong or right, the universe doesn't depend on them. If the theory of gravity is proved wrong, the planets don't all fly off into...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 Thread

Lucky for the Aussies Dan Carter wasn't playing, it would have been 40-6 or worse.

Re: National Anthems

What is this nonsense of having some "star" come out to sing the anthems? Surely the whole point of a National anthem is that EVERYONE sings it.

Re: Women on the front-line in Afghanistan?

Front lines are very different nowadays. But who's to say that won't change? If you write the headline: Australia Allows Women to be Cannon-fodder, it puts a slightly different spin on it.
