Things I’ve Noticed


Being out the loop somewhat over christmas/new year a few things slid by that I might normally comment on. The Links of the Moment contains a further collection of noticed links without any actual comment. First up it’s good to see that the terrible scourge of dihydrogen monoxide isn’t being allowed to go out of the public sight. As a scientist I fully appreciate the terrible effects this substance can have.

Talking of danger, reaching an unprecedented 4 on the Torino scale, asteroid 2004 MN4 may have been a little dangerous. But then it dropped back to a zero. Whatever the outcome of that threat, it’s the ones which slide by without warning that are scary.

All I’ll say on the real disaster of recent weeks is how much awe I feel over the sheer power of such an event, amply demonstrated by the satellite images. Now can we please try moving on, stop with the minute silences at every footie game and the modern wallowing in sadness. The quickest, simplest way to donate is probably to click the big box on Amazon’s homepage. Remember the survivors.
