  1. Cold air holds much less moisture than warm air. I've been suffering with a bad throat in recent weeks. I've noticed that if I'm walking in the cold it sets me off coughing. So I've been increasing the humidity by fastening up my coat past my mouth and breathing through the warm moist air in my coat. In a car, the ventilation is designed to dry the air so that it prevents the car from getting damp and misting up the windows. With AC on this will dry the air as it is a byproduct of air conditioning. With AC off then there will still be a drying effect due to the fans and the pipework. I'd suggest you set the car ventilation with very low fan levels and warm. Ideally you need a humidifier to put a little moisture in the air you are breathing. e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/CACAGOO-Humidifier-Ultrasonic-Waterless-Whisper-Quiet/dp/B07VDDMFWZ?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duc08-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B07VDDMFWZ
  2. If Brexit is still going ahead in 2021 then it is unlikely to be very close to being completed. By then they will just be coming up with a list of the first countries to be inviting the UK to visit and start negotiating trade deals. I expect that Brexit will just go quiet for several years in reality.
  3. No you don't. We had the Cheapest bus fairs in the UK in the 1970s but the most expensive rates. Nowadays the busses are less to travel on than they were in the 1970s if you compare the cost with inflation and income in mind, drinking beer in pubs, Busses and Taxis have never been cheaper.
  4. The issue here is not "conductors" it is that people are using complicated cards that are sold by the drivers. In my view the way forward is to do as they have in London and have contactless, making the busses cash free and the transactions out of the hands of the driver. the driver should not be dealing with money anyway,
  5. I don't think SCH has ever been part of this scheme. Why would they when their staff only work in one main site at the west of the city? I believe this bus scheme came into existence in the 2000s as part of several ways to help with the staff parking problems. They were planning to build a massive multi-storey car park at the NGH but the locals objected to the building so it never got built. This bus service was to allow the central staff to park at the NGH multi-storey and take the bus to central. No doubt the size and frequency of the bus would have been different if the Car park had been built.
  6. Well there is no shortage of hotels being opened in the City. Hilton must have been in the wrong place or uncompetitive.
  7. Space travel is massively wasteful to the earth's resources, especially manned space travel. If humans can survive another thousand years, by then we "might" have the means to travel to other planets where it would be possible to make a home, but this kind of thing is way beyond our technology today. The only way space flight is even possible now is when it is directly supported by a national government of a wealthy country or several wealthy countries. It is worth reminding everyone that George W Bush promised that his administration would put a man on Mars, but this was later "dropped" when it was pointed out to him that this adventure would cost the whole of the USA's annual budget for 1 year at the time. Extinction is an important part of life on this planet it always has been and it always will.
  8. I watched this and thought it was awful. I saw it on twitter and basically a hundred people also saying it was awful. The set up and writing is terrible in my view. The emergency services were not behaving like they should. The plot seems to be idiotic written by someone who is very poorly informed. The Welsh accents were not a great idea and on Twitter there are lots of Welsh people quite offended as the accent seemed to drift around different regions of Wales. I've seen several of Sarah Lancashire's shows over the last 5 years or so and all of them were more believable than this. A very poor effort.
  9. Great Idea. Fireworks are nothing but a nuisance. Every year I hear them going off for weeks. Often it sounds like kids setting off the odd one that they have managed to get hold of. I'd happily ban them tomorrow.
  10. They don't do CAT scans any longer. It is CT scans now, which are slightly more advanced.
  11. Survive in terms of evolution means only getting old enough to be able to reproduce, this is not necessary very long. Adaptation of immune system is unlikely to happen while we have medicine to treat people to prevent them from becoming infected. The same genes perpetuate to the next generation and no significant evolution occurs, unless mass gene editing becomes ethically acceptable and effective. I still maintain that people in the developed world have stopped "evolving" as many medical issues can be overcome. Although it will be interesting to see what effect people having children into older age will do to the genetics of their offspring. I agree that Eugenics is a poisonous subject and I have always noted it interesting that so many people who advocate that certain people have less worth, are not particularly glorious specimens of physical humanity themselves.
  12. Exactly correct. The average journalist and person on the Clapham omnibus has no concept of the vastness of space. Our species will be extinct long before we can work out how to successfully travel a distance as big as that without dying. Buck Rogers and Star Treck is never going to be reality. This planet "Earth" is where the entirety of the story of Homo Sapiens is going to be acted out. From emergence to extinction. We will be very lucky if humans finish up existing one tenth of the duration of the dinosaurs. Most species are but a blink of an eye to this planet.
  13. Our species has evolved in the past, But no longer. For evolution to work we would need only the strong and most healthy people, or those that were the most impressive in terms of leadership, intelligence or other measure to have children. Nowadays with medical advances, people with health problems and lack of fertility can also have children which can be supported by healthcare to maturity. Essentially if everyone can choose to have children, then evolution has stopped.
  14. The last few posts are very telling. Here is how the far right wing divides the lower classes. It is totally acceptable for people from the elite to be born abroad and settle in the UK, but the working population and poor people are seen as immigrants and required to achieve difficult targets to be allowed to stay A short list of "British" Elites that are not born in the UK; Prince Philip, Boris Johnson, Joanna Lumley, Princess Michael of Kent, Cliff Richard, Spike Milligan, Freddie Mercury, …..
