    [–] An absolute unit of a plane only_one_aye 24 points ago in AbsoluteUnits

    It's lighter because it's full of wings.

    [–] Secondary school bans talking in the corridors to keep children calm only_one_aye 1 points ago in news

    Year 12 & 13. The years don't start at '1' again once you finish junior schoold anymore - they just keep going up from '1' when you begin infants, and keep going up. They like to complicate it further by then referring to groups of years as certain key stages on top of needlessly changing the numbering system.

    [–] The magniture of this shockwave following an explosion at the sun during a solar flare is beyond comprehension. only_one_aye 1 points ago in gifs

    The sun is considered by some to be a 3rd generation star. This is indicated by the abundance of heavier atoms it has been observed to contain. It's an imprecise measure, and it is impossible to tell how many times any given atom has been subjected to stellar fusion. However, the face that you're not made out of Hydrogen and Helium (the only matter existing in the universe after the big bang) indicates that every atom in your body has undergone stellar fusion at least once in its lifetime. And given the abundance of the heavier atoms by which we are surrounded, it can be inferred that at least some of our atomic makeup has experienced the process multiple times.

    [–] Footage of one of the last Tasmanian tigers in existence. They went extinct in 1936 only_one_aye 8 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    And the rest of the English speaking world. Americanisms are funny. For any Americans visiting the UK: if you have to 'change your pants', you're announcing that you shat yourself.

    [–] When the drugs take over! only_one_aye 1 points ago in WTF

    I've walked into the urinals late at night and seen a girl cocking her leg at Glasto. Twice. The same year.

    [–] Saudi Arabia admits journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed after a fight broke out in consulate only_one_aye 1 points ago in news

    No - better to embellish the story with immensly rich, shady characters, intent on controlling what ordinary people think and do, surely?

    [–] Massive Attack - Teardrop [Trip hop] only_one_aye 3 points ago in Music

    Been listening to them since Blue Lines, and I think Heligoland is their best yet, after all these years. I have a lot of respect for any artistic endeavour, but many artists blow their load in an album or two. Those that (in my opinion) get ever better with age, are the ones that I end up respecting the most artistically.

    [–] Revenge on a rude bank teller only_one_aye 18 points ago in pettyrevenge

    I was in a similar situation a few years ago, but I was a bit more arse-holey. When the teller insisted the coins had to be counted, I pointed to her weighing machine, but she shook her head. I had already sorted the coins by type, so when she handed me the bags, I grabbed a handful, dumped them in a bag, dumped the bag in front of her, and said 'pound'.

    She said - no it isn't, so I said yes it is. She repeated herself. So did I.

    At that point, she had no choice but to weigh the bag, which she did. Of course the amount was wrong by a few pennies, so I said 'oh sorry', took out the offending 4p or whatever, and moved onto the next bag.


    No it isn't

    Yes it is.

    No it ISN'T

    Yes it IS!

    Played the same game for about 15 bags, dialogue included, with neither of us giving an inch. It was beautiful.
