Bethlehem in Palestine. I've … Read more

He's not a real person - this is just an internet myth. The camera (as we know it today) was more a development of several inventions, rather than one single discovery. Johann Zahn is the man credited with creating the first functioning image capturing device. He did this in 1685.
People keep saying that the world will end soon. No! It's not true! They just want to get attention. People say it's going to end in 2012. We don't know! Maybe, maybe not. JEEZ! When God says enough fighting, he will send Jesus down, and people won't even know it's Jesus! So then it'll just … Read more
Athenosphere has sortof thrown us, I think. Did you means Asthenosphere or Atmosphere?
Not true. Studies with identical twins separated at birth or during early childhood show that nature is FAR more important to the development of personality than nurture. We are all born "just the way we are".

I was in Berlin about a month after the wall came down. I'd have loved to have been there for that. I was in South Africa about 3 months after the end of apartheid, and the sense of, "Look out, world, here we come!" was palpable. It seemed as if everyone had a sense of … Read more
Me, I think.
That is Terry Pratchett. His sense of humour (I hope) mirrors my own.

What are the laws on camping in the UK, can I camp along a public footpath? Or in a field as long as I don't leave anything behind?
OK. Almost all camping on land owned by someone else is considered "Trespass". If you arrive late and leave early, and no-one ever knew you were there, who cares?
