    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...

    Is Ed Miliband weird ?

    According to the washington post, some Labour supporters clearly think that Ed is a 'weirdo'. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/05/23/is-ed-miliband-too-weird-to-be-british-prime-minister/ Personally I'm not sure...albeit he always looks like he's about to burst into...
  4. Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Newport County (H)

    31/01/2014 - Newport County (H) Edinburgh Returns Friday night sees ex-Blues player Justin Edinburgh bring his Newport side to the seaside for their first visit to Roots Hall since 1985, when we lost 1-0 in the FA Cup 1st Round. We first played Newport on Christmas Day in 1920, when we drew...
  5. Craig Reid

    is there any chance of him playing for you tomorrow?. He was quite a legend down here, albeit in the non-league, but I can honestly say that 99.9% of Newport fans were gutted when he was sold on to Stevenage. Whatever he will get a great reception from all county fans tomorrow. Some on our forum...

    Silvio Berlusconi was criticised for again calling Barack Obama "suntanned" and extending the insult to his wife, Michelle. At a rally last night Berlusconi said: "I have to bring you some greetings, greetings from a man, what is his name, what is his name - just a minute it was someone with a...
  13. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...

    Shocking news - government minister talks sense

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7829946.stm A highly commendable product of introspective reflection, or just a further case of our leaders conveniently aligning their own positions with those held in Washington at any given moment? It'll be interesting to see how his Brown reacts to...

    Reincarnation in DC

    Skins' Taylor back at practice This was one of the headlines on ESPN.com this morning. I thought Sean Taylor was six feet under? Then I remembered Washington had signed Jason Taylor. It was a weird moment.

    Metal Monday 19 - Featuring Kurt Cobain's fave band

    Just about to get this on board in time to still be Monday!! Apologies to SUFC Al or Brettie Angell if they had something else lined up, but thought I'd get some stoner out to the masses. The Melvins were formed in the early 1980s by Buzz Osborne (guitar/vocals), Matt Lukin (bass) and Mike...
  18. Fave US/Canadian Sports Teams

    From the Superbowl thread I can see a lot of interest in the NFL amongst Zoners, wondered if this spread to other US sports. Having spent 5 years in Canada and the US, I am a big fan of all four major US sports, and I follow these teams: NHL: Montreal Canadiens. (Seen them live twice)...

  20. 24 Season 7 trailer

    After a lackluster sixth season, 24 returns in January having had a kick up the backside. 'Big Balls' Bill Buchanan is there, as is Chloe but CTU is gone, the show has moved to Washington DC. And they look to have bowed to fan pressure to bring back one of most popular characters they ever had...
