He may not be at school right now, even though he has homework. I always had homework and coursework to do during the summer for the last three or so years of school.

Well the radio series came first; the books were developed from it afterwards.

Read the books, liked them, saw the film, didn't like it, haven't heard the radio series or seen the TV version.

I'd guess, oh, 3/28/1997. That's 28/3/1997 for you Europeans.

—Alorael, who has no idea what 060704 is. Maybe 6:07:04 in the morning?

I'd use 1997/03/28 (or 1997-03-28). This way you crazy Americans get to have the month first, the insanely logical Europeans get them ordered by size (year month day, as good as day month year), and there's no confusion because nobody would ever use year/day/month. :P

I feel I must intervene in this Great Date Debate.

Actually it's not even that simple ( - what Aran said). In the UK you'd probably never see anything other than dd/mm/yy, so even yyyy-mm-dd would confuse people no end. Putting a dash where people expect to find a slash is just asking for trouble. In Sweden people are more flexible and can usually figure it out, though they tend to use yymmdd or yyyymmdd.

Yay, we've been getting between 5-10C whatever that is in Fahrenheit. Its so warm. Infact, schools been cancelled occasionally because no-one can drive because the roads are just ice.
In (northern hemisphere) winter it's like this in the UK too (generally at 0 C). The tiniest bit of ice or two centimetres of snow, and the whole country grinds to a halt. Swedish winter regularly gets down to -20C and they hardly bat an eyelid.

Just a matter of getting used to it I suppose.

Above ground in London it was *only* about 34, but the tube is always much hotter than the outside temperature in summer, and usually colder in winter. People were standing at the tube station entrances saying "Don't do it, don't go down there."

Tell me about it. It seems like it gets hotter every summer. On Wednesday it was 50 degrees C on the tube in London...

Well personally I'm not trying to mock Christianity.

In all seriousness, I thought that the whole point was that you're not supposed to understand everything about it, because God is inherently unfathomable.

And yes I do think that some Christians use that as a convenient excuse to do whatever they like, but somehow I don't think that a religion really makes any sense if everything about it follows clinical logic.

Is Jesus dead, then?

Originally written by Jewels:
Well, he did die. I doubt he stayed in his human form after his ascention, but as an all-powerful deity he can do as he pleases. He did promise all his followers that they would have eternal life also, just after their death of course.

So you are saying that Jesus is a separate deity from God? He is the son of God so he is another being. But by worshiping Jesus you break the first commandment which has that you shall have no other god before me.

As I understand it, God is God, and Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God are also God manifested as the Holy Trinity. So Jesus is either not quite the same thing as God or exactly the same thing as God, depending on how you look at it. Either way, Jesus is not a separate God from God, so no problems there. Anyway I don't think that's what Jewels said at all.

Wow. The second version actually has more calories than the first version. Swanson's obviously felt that they needed to improve the calorie per gram efficiency.

Perhaps they intend to use it for long distance runners or astronauts or something?

Web editors: I know nothing about them so it's probably best to ignore what I say, but you could have a gander at this. It's even a Dutch company, by the looks of it.

No... actually it's not terribly exciting. I was in the Bílé Karpaty mountains on the Czech/Slovakian border, and there was a very nice view of Slovakian hills and villages. You can sort of see it reflected in the lenses.

Edit: More or less this and this.

Well, to be fair, Thin Air's picture revealed no facial features or other discriminating curves whatsoever.
This is quite true, and I don't object to being mistaken for a guy on the basis of that photo (or the one in my profile, which is just as unclear). In those picures I could plausibly be a 14/15 year old guy, when in fact I'm a 23 year old girl. I should get a part in Shakespeare.

That said, I do object to the trend that Aran pointed out: that everyone is male by default unless stated otherwise.

This topic is nuclear-biased, so I don't know how to count my family. If just siblings, then we are 3 (two sisters). If parents and siblings, then we are either 5 or 3, and if you add up all the individuals then we're 6.

In A4, all monsters are already shown as red dots on the automap, so it's easy to see whether you've killed them all or not. I'm guessing this will be the same in A5. I find see-through walls in games confusing.
