Sunday Roast: show me that horizon!

So according to Moose, there are around 200 million blogs that are no longer updated. In case you thought Bright Meadow was one of them because the Roast is so late this week, forgive me. I blame the penguins – Penguins with happy feet.

Don’t you just love marine biologists? Only they could come up with the vampire squid from hell.

Airplane + Treadmill. Who would win?

Now, I’ve been to some wild parties in my time, but I’ve never sacrificed a camel.

It’s harder than you would think to find a pink cover for the new iPod nano – so what does a clever girl do? Make her own.

The other week there was singing cats. This week it’s singing sheep. I just love how the Cumbrian tourist chap likens it to the re-release of Slade…

You can’t make this stuff up – the World’s tallest man saves a dolphin.

I always knew that my Minions were wonderful people – now I KNOW they are.

Who would win in a fight? A lion, or 42 Cambodian Fighting Midgets?
I reckon the Midgets if you are counting the Midgets as an entity – so sure, you’re going to have sacrifice a few for the greater good, but as a whole the Midgets would win.
Then you’ve got to ask yourself, for who would it be morally more wrong?

  1. I always wondered about this one:

    If a truck carrying canaries (1 ton of) is 1/2 a ton too heavy for a bridge, if the driver upsets all the canaries so that they fly about instead of perching in thier transport boxes, will the truck be light enough to cross?

    I think the confusion on the plane-treadmil thing is to with how people conceptualise it’s movement.

    They are being confused by the idea of the engines thrust, rather than how a car moves. Simple fact is, even with the engine thrusting against the air, if the plane has 0 forward motion then there will be 0 air flow and hence 0 lift, regardless of it being the engines and not the wheels that power it forwards. It’s not moving relative to the air it is in (given a perfect treadmil and ) friction wheels etc).

    Can you tell I should be doing homework?

    Neko out

    That’s what I said! 🙂 lol
