Ahh Is it a combination of the words anus and ragnorok meaning the apocalypse in norse mythology. Erm no...(although that would be an apt description in this case) Apparently it's British slang for someone interested in boring information. True, although it's also an actual word for a heavy coat, s...

If so, you understand that the process of evolution is change for survival. I would argue that evloution is not a process 'for' anything it just 'is' and as a result you have diversity and change which results in apparent adaptation to the environment. Regardless humans are perhaps unique on this p...

I was kinda dissapointed with the swiftness of Obamas victory, I was hoping to waste my morning at work keeping track of the results as they came in. Instead I didnt even have time to make a coffee and fire up my PC before I knew it was done. I think my As long as you don't actually throw rocks at f...

Ah okay, I understand now, that does make sense. I was considering marriage in the legal sense (as recognised by state rather than church), I didn't really consider the religious implications what with being an atheist an all. As long as you don't actually throw rocks at fabulous people I really don...

Sometimes I despair, I really do. How is number of wars won/number of countries yours is currently fighting in a sign of your country's 'greatness'. I'm also completey puzzled by the concept of 'not being allowed to win' a war, especially when no one seems to have any idea what the criteria for a vi...

*Hands Dr.X a tissue* "Here you need this with the amount of SNOT you've been producing lately." I like the mix of greys, gives it an unpainted, battle scarred look. Excellent use of the '2x2 corner round' as the gun barrel/missile tube support, in fact very good weapons integration altogether, well...

Depends how big your ship is!? Plenty on bricklink if you look hard enough. Plus TLC have already done most of the hard work for you- almost every 90's era big space set had any number of detachable pods/ships that could serve. See every Blacktron II set!

In Star Wars episode 5, in the carbon freezing chamber, in the background, you can see that crate with the swatsika on it that the nazis in Indiana Jones stored the ark in. Hang on, empire came out in 1980 and Raiders was 1981? that was some foresight by Lucas/Spielberg if this is true, I shall hav...
