  1. Posting this here as I didn't know where else to post it. I found this article while searching for information about Fibonacci sequences in trees as I'm a scale modeller. This article has interesting ideas about how to improve efficiency in solar arrays. https://www.amnh.org/learn-teach/curriculum-collections/young-naturalist-awards/winning-essays/2011/the-secret-of-the-fibonacci-sequence-in-trees
  2. It seems that the Conservative party membership aren't happy about being denied a vote in the leadership election https://voxpoliticalonline.com/2022/10/24/is-the-conservative-party-imploding-because-of-sunaks-leadership-victory/
  3. I've seen other rumours to the effect that, should Boris be reselected as PM, at least 100 Conservative backbenchers will cross the floor, resigning the whip and vote with Labour to force a General Election.
  4. Yesterday on the BBC, the most accurate description of the current Conservative government: "The ringmaster has left the circus and now the lions are eating the clowns."
  5. Probably because, unlike OANN and Fox, they're there to report on what's said on the platform rather than blow smoke up Trump's ass by showing his tens of followers.
  6. If the offences hadn't become public, the Conservative party would have done nothing about it. For years, the Chief Whip's office kept files on every Tory MP's pecadilloes that would have made J Edgar proud. These were used to blackmail MPs into voting the "right" way. Unfortunately for them we're now in an age where camera phones and YouTube exist so transgressions are more likely to end up in public domain.
  7. Given that the last 12 years of Tory government has been a massive exercise in transferring vast amounts of public finances into the pockets and bank accounts of a select few Tory faithful, I'd say that they're well on track.
  8. I'm personally amazed that he chose Charles, given the chequered history that has befallen previous kings of that name.
  9. The anti "woke" folks have been at it a long time and spouting similar themes to today. Clip from a newspaper (1860):

    “I’m not arguing there are no decent people in the Tory party but they're like sweetcorn in a turd; technically they kept their integrity but they're still embedded in shit” - Iain Banks
  11. Seen on a FB group - If you want to go on a camping trip, to a state that welcomes camping, I will happily drive you and never talk about that camping trip to anyone.
  12. Welcome to Gilead. "Blessed Be The Fruit."
  13. Senate votes in favour of bi-partisan gun control bill It seems that politicians, at least in the Senate, are less concerned with owning the other side and more concerned about working together to reduce the number of mass shootings.
  14. I wish. Here in the UK we're about to hit £10 per gallon ($12.30).
