HELLO, once again I’ve gone on a bit of a ramble but if I make you smile just once reading this then I’ll be a happy man.
A big story this week was the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle by scientists.
Let’s be honest, most of us read that headline thinking it was a new rock band or a Swiss footballer.
Apparently this particle weighs 125.3 gigaelectronvolts. I know, I’ve absolutely no idea what weight scale that is either.
I’m still using grams and ounces but I reckon it’s still probably heavier than a Ryvita.
For all the incredible advances that scientists make in our understanding of the universe, it seems that some religious leaders seem to be pulling in the opposite direction.
I don’t want to sound like I’m bashing anyone but one last week was actually blaming all the recent flooding on God’s anger with the recent pro-gay laws.
Come on, it’s 2012. I can’t believe these people are still allowed to spout their bigoted views.
I think it should be highlighted that there as been no flooding in Brighton.
I WAS talking to an American lady on Friday night at a venue in Colchester.
She really liked my accent and asked where I was from. I told her I was from St Helens but when she tried to repeat it she was saying it completely wrong.
So I said it’s spelt exactly the same as Mount St Helens, the volcano that erupted in America back in the 80’s. Her reaction was “Oh my god, you guys have a volcano”?
I know I should have corrected her at this point but she was doing my head in a bit with not listening properly.
So unless she researches it she’s going to believe we have an active volcano called Mount Billinge.
Thanks for reading ...
