Helium isn't a molecule. While most elemental gases (hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, chlorine etc.) are diatomic (found naturally as H2, N2, O2, Cl2 etc. )and therefore molecular, helium has a complete electron shell and so can exist as a free He atom. But I'm sure you knew this anyway and had just slipped your mind.

Believe me, if you have 'flu, then by god you know it. I had it in 1991 and I couldn't get out of bed for 2 days. The clock was my only entertainment. Even my mother believed I was ill, which took some doing.

I think hus are the fuel that power American social society. I find all hugs creepy and unsettling, though, having only had one in my life.

Right phoned, bought ticket etc. Dealing with the ticket office was no problem (after the queue waiting piping light jazz music - I thought that after recent revelations that reggae would be more appropriate), but pysching myself up to use the phone was agony. Still, I managed it and I'll get many plaudits in group therapy when I tell them this tomorrow.

Ooh, 10 pounds is no problem, less than no problem in fact. Using the phone is another thing entirely. Why have a 'buy tickets' option on the website if a customer can't actually do that? Are Warwickshire waiting for next year's Sky TV money so they can fix this? Right. After a bottle and a half I may be able to use the phone, but I can't promise being able to give details correctly.
Added to The Coffee Grounds on 11:16, 13 Jun 2005
I'm presuming the above number is the ticket sales number, right? Any idea of price (I should be able to afford it, but I like to have a rough idea of these things) and what stand to be in? Edgbaston's website seems not to be very helpful here.

Good god. You'd have a heart attack if you read some of the things that are on the Atlas F1 Nostalgia forum.
And one senior motorsport journalist, in his weekly column in the biggest selling magazine of it's genre, wrote that "Instead of using all that technology to devise traction control software, those scientists should spend their time devising something to shut down speed cameras before I pass them."

I went out in light rain to buy Autosport and DWM. Halfway into the 1.5 mile trip is starts really chucking it down and I get thoroughly drenched.
I came home and dried myself and sat down with my mags, and the guttering outside my house falls off (due to massive water overflow) as it's been threatening to do for me.
Somebody up there....well, you know the rest.

I've recently ended a long running dispute with Demon. Namely them trying to charge me £233.25 for an account I cancelled last year. A simple and vaguely offended email set it right on 8th December - one of the best birthday presents I've had.

I remember a whooping cough scare at my primary school in about 1983 (and about someone from my class too). Letters given to the parents from the headmaster and everything. Coupled with that, in the mid 1970s there was a whooping cough vaccine scare, so very few of my generation were given the jab for it. So the MMR thing is nothing new, you know.

I was barely awake. I was just about to get up (this is me, remember) and I heard some stuff on my PC desk bumping a bit. I thought 'Nah, can't be an earthquake'.
Last one we had round here was a few years ago - a 2.8 Richter one when some local mine workings collapsed. Now that was mildly disconcerting.

It makes you wonder how far you can go, watching out for additives, adulterants, GMing, farming practices etc. In the end, you'll end up growing your own wheat in the back garden (having first checked the soil for pesticides, herbicides, industrial pollutants etc). There comes a point where it just becomes unviable in a modern society.

I'm following my own diet. It's called the 'Tox' diet, where I consume nothing but dairy products, wheat-based products and alcohol. Tonight I'm having 4 cheese pizza, with lots of white bread, a packet of chocolate chip cookies, and washed down with Australian Shiraz and vodka. And 3 pints of milk before I go to bed. It's a great sacrifice, naturally. But you have to persist with what you believe in.

Well, *I* liked the relaunched series of Green Lantern. In fact, the first DC comic I bought was #19. I eventually completed my run of 1-23 from various shops. I did put a standing order in for 24, but after reading it in the shop I refused to buy it, because it was no good. And all before my 18th birthday, too.
I stick to GL back issues now.

Could be worse. In 1988, my mother was driving us to Lancaster on a weekday morning. Passing through the M6 near Birmingham, a car swerved, hit the back wheel of a truck, and cartwheeled off the road onto the crash barrier. My mother braked just hard enough to avoid being collected by the flying lump of metal. She stopped just in front of it, and it had landed the right way up, though somewhat damaged. The driver looked ok, if somewhat surprised.

My experience of this is that schools spend loads of cash on computers to impress the board of governors/local press/parents of prospective students. Having done that, they then have to find some reason for justifying the expense. In the case of a college I went to, this entailed cutting the lecture time by a third and telling us to use the 'Learning Resource Centre' (eg: big, new expensive building full of shiny new expensive PCs) to make up the difference.
