  1. Just had a look at this. Announced that the home game with Newcastle on 11th Feb will be on Sky, and the 13th game to be shown on TV. Our next 3pm Sat kickoff is not until 2nd March! So we'll likely hit 15+ by the end of the season. Price of Being big-time I guess

    It should be like the Champions/Europa League. If you get knocked out in the first two rounds you have to go and play in the BDO one as punishment.

    I'm just glad we avoided all the big guns...

    It is. Very. Be like shagging Boris in a wig.
  5. Think we've been on Sky 5 or 6 times already. Long may it continue. If we can take points off Man City and beat Chelsea at home then we can give Liverpool a game. Just need to turn up. Hopefully it won't be pissing down or too cold.
  6. Wolves v Liverpool this Friday on Sky. We'll see how good they are then....
  7. Runs of form will dip up and down depending on fixtures. We were behind you, now we're ahead of you. I think we'll finish roughly the same place around 8th/9th give or take a point or two, and I'll be very happy with that as a newly promoted team. Hopefully we just squeak it though as I've had a tenner with a Leicester fan at work on who'll finish higher.

    Even though it sounds simple in theory it's still incredibly difficult to achieve. In order for two atoms to fuse you have to push them together with incredible force to get them close enough for the strong nuclear force to overcome the repulsion of two similarly charged nuclei. You have to do this by forcing them together at very high temperatures (equivalent of fast speeds). We're talking tens of thousands of degrees celcius. So then there's the amount of cooling you need, the complexity of the apparatus, and the issue with containment of the waste. We can do it for short periods (minutes), but we need to do it for longer sustained periods (months), and safely. Which is the hard part and why such investment is needed. It's doable though and is obviously very appealing if we can get there.

    As above, fission is the messy one which creates lots of nuclear waste. Fusion is what happens in the centre of stars and the major bi-product is Helium, which is what you get when you fuse two protons together (Hydrogen has one proton, Helium has two). Helium is also a non toxic inert gas, which ironically the Earth is running out of for use in things like MRI scanners (CERN also uses it to supercool their magnets). The only other "waste product" if you can call it that is a Neutron which can theoretically interact with other materials, even though it has a half life of only 7 x 10-22 seconds. Depending on how well you contain those would decide if it was an issue. Likely not though. How can you create a neutron when Hydrogen atoms don't have neutrons, I hear you ask? Well the most reliable way to create fusion here on Earth is to use two heavier isotopes of Hydrogen called Dueterium and Tritium. Dueterium has 1 proton and 1 neutron, Tritium has 1 proton and 2 neutrons. You fuse one atom of each together and you get Helium-4 (a stable version of helium with two neutrons) + a neutron + lots of energy. Sorry if that was boring btw.

    Let's have a TV shows thread.

    Kiernan Shipka is fantastic in it though.

    That's why it needs serious investment. The technology is there in theory, we just need to be able to sustain it continuously.
