    Does Hell give off heat or does it absorb it?

    "Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof." This was an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm: Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools off when it expands and...
  2. Headhunters

    Anyone moved role and had to deal with headhunters? Any tips/advice etc? I've worked in academia all my working life but giving a bit of thought about moving to a private firm. The industry is small but expanding and I'm in demand, and the headhunters who are routinely pestering me seem to...
  3. Asda

    I was just wondering if anybody picked up on the news yesterday with regards to the announcement by Asda that they will be expanding their presence in the UK by opening circa 300+ new stores (largely in the South of England)? Apparently this is at odd with the current strategy of the rest of...
  4. Pringello Index

    Sorry for the delay in getting the site up and running, but we've been expanding. We were hoping to start the new season and include all League 1 & 2 clubs, with a volunteer for each club. Sadly, it hasn't gone to plan and we are left with teams without volunteers. So I am asking if anyone is...

    Season 23 - Wages, Players and Predictions

    Wages up to 457 from 400 - partly due to squad strengthening but I'll be expanding my ground and should be able to cover costs OK - though hoping a cup run helps fund that. Possibly another 25-30K to go on wages though I might downgrade an extra batsmen to quality or remarkable as a squad...

    The Universe

    Having been watching Stephen Hawkins "The Universe" DVD's which are great, one question I have that maybe a Zoner could answer, as I know we have some on here brighter than SH... If the Universe started with the Big Bang which he describes as like a balloon being blown up, we know a Balloon...

    Mike Lapper interview

    Legend Mike Lapper, current assistant coach for the Columbus Crew, former defender for the U.S. National Team and various clubs, most notably the Crew, was kind enough to give me an exclusive interview for Pro Soccer Weekly. Mike is a really nice guy and gives some very frank answers to the...

    Greatest Reality Show Ever: Steven Seagal Lawman

    I'm not sure if this is available anywhere on British TV, but I've downloaded and watched the first six episodes of the new A&E series, Steven Seagal: Lawman. The show follows Seagal on his beat as a deputy sheriff in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, a beat he has walked for 20 years now. We see...

    FTP Setup

    Chaps, I hope somebody can help. I run a business from home, working with a lot of data on a daily basis. It has got to the stage where the data is no longer able to be emailed to me due to the size. I need an FTP where a couple of clients can make a data dump every day (Only around 50MB a...
  11. What Becomes of the Broke and Shafted

    Someone great once said that Football isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more than that. Which would explain the pain felt by those when their football club is ripped away from them. As a Southend United supporter, I've had the good grace of never witnessing non-league football and...
  12. shrimper loz


    The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington Chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well : Bonus...
  13. SUFC - heading in the right direction

    Amidst all the current transfer uncertainty, I'm going to stick my neck out and say I think our club has got a clear idea of where its going. At the end of last season we had a first XI who were good but not quite good enough plus an assortment of fringe players who were either past their best...

    Planets And The Universe

    The Universe is a big place and to many of us it seems endless. Which if theories are correct it could be as it is ever expanding. Not much is known outside of Earth but some think we are the big boys. Think again! Feel big at the moment dont we. But these are the little boys of the solar...

    The ever expanding SZPB honours the following individuals: SUFC Player of the Season: Leon Clarke - who needs fitness, consistency or a good attitude when you can hit a penalty as hard as that? SUFC Most Improved Player: Matt Harrold - went from totally abysmal to just terrible. SUFC...

    Hattrick future plans

    As expected, just keeping the team going while I've been away has put me in a much better position than when I left. The team is marginally better but importantly, I now have a million pounds in the bank and a much bigger stadium. BUT I want to spend that money because it's no fun...

    We went into the valleys and slayed the giants

    Wow, as the hangover has lifted it has finally sunk in that we bloody did it! Although I always followed the Blues fortunes since childhood I didn't really see many games, even when I started work at 17. I actually started to goto to every home game from the middle of 98/99 onwards so...
