    A Joke

    Told to me earlier today by my nephew. What do you call an alligator wearing a vest?
  3. A thread concerning both aviation and space flight coupled together with the branch of science which deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole. The Chinese space station Tiangong-1 is set to fall to Earth over this weekend. The latest from the European Space Agency (ESA) predicts 1615 hrs GMT on Sunday 1st April 2018 plus or minus nine hours. This tracker is continuously updated to show the current position and height as the orbit decays. When Skylab fell to Earth in 1979 a $400 littering ticket was issued by a park service official in Western Australia; apparently it still hasn’t been paid and has been written off. Useful Sites Heavens-Above is a website developed and maintained by Chris Peat as Heavens-Above GmbH. The web site is dedicated to helping people observe and track satellites orbiting the Earth without the need for optical equipment such as binoculars or telescopes. It provides detailed star charts showing the trajectory of the satellites against the background of the stars as seen during a pass. Special attention is paid to the ISS, Iridium flares and other satellites. Space shuttle missions were tracked until the program was retired in July 2011. The website also offers information on currently visible comets, asteroids, planet details, and other miscellaneous information. N2YO provides real time tracking and pass predictions with orbital paths and footprints overlaid on Google Maps.It features an alerting system that automatically notifies users via SMS and/or email before International Space Station crosses the local sky. The N2YO.com system powers ESA's, Space.com's and many other's satellite tracking web pages. NASA Lunar Eclipse Explorer computes the local circumstances for every lunar eclipse for any century from 2000 BC to 3000 AD. Forget about city etc, just enter your latitude and longitude as a decimal. NASA Solar Eclipse Explorer computes the local circumstances for every solar eclipse for any century from 1500 BC to 3000 AD. Again, forget about city etc, just enter your latitude and longitude as a decimal. International Space Station Transit Finder calculates when the ISS transits across the face of the sun and moon from a position near you. Don’t forget your solar filters if you’re looking at the sun. Telescope.org is where you can request The Open University’s automated telescope on Mount Teide, Tenerife to take a photograph for you. Airliners.net is an aviation website that includes an extensive photo database of aircraft and airports, as well as a forum catering to civil and military aviation together with spaceflights. If you have any questions, please ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    9/11 anniversary.

    As usual, I had lunch whilst watching the news on BBC1. Afterwards, I went into the front garden to do the end of summer start of autumn jobs. A neighbour returned home and told me "there's been a plane crash in New York". He said he didn't know any more than that as he'd overheard someone in the barber shop mention it. I went in the house, turned on the TV and sat there for a good three hours just watching.

    They aren't when they live in Sheffield - like I suspect Hosni does.

    Songs that would never be made today?

    One listener complained to Ofcom about the radio station Gold because they played the Blue Mink hit Melting Pot. The outcome is Gold are no longer allowed to play it. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7399617/Gold-Radio-bans-Melting-Pot-Blue-Mink-listener-complains-offensive-lyrics.html

    Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    You can find all the thread names by clicking on the category on the forums page. The downside is you get only 25 titles and then have to click for the next page to see the next 25. If you click on this link you can download a pdf of the 2019 names and forum titles all stitched together. The main advantage is you can search for a term of fewer than four characters. I've ordered them by date created. Click 'download' then 'direct download' in the top right hand corner. If you get a pop up asking you to create an account, just close the pop up and click on 'download' again. Let me know if you want 'dead pools' and 'extra-curricular'.

    A Joke

    The top 10 jokes at this year's Edinburgh Fringe: Olaf Falafel I keep randomly shouting out 'Broccoli' and 'Cauliflower' - I think I might have Florets. Richard Stott Someone stole my antidepressants. Whoever they are, I hope they're happy." Milton Jones What's driving Brexit? From here it looks like it's probably the Duke of Edinburgh. Jake Lambert A cowboy asked me if I could help him round up 18 cows. I said, 'Yes, of course. That's 20 cows'. Ross Smith A thesaurus is great. There's no other word for it. Ross Smith Sleep is my favourite thing in the world. It's the reason I get up in the morning. Adele Cliff I accidentally booked myself onto an escapology course; I'm really struggling to get out of it. Richard Pulsford After learning six hours of basic semaphore, I was flagging. Mark Simmons To be or not to be a horse rider, that is equestrian. Ivo Graham I've got an Eton-themed Advent calendar, where all the doors are opened for me by my dad's contacts.

    She seems to be losing her hair and was decidedly looking peaky on the BBC lunchtime news.

    Aerospace and Astronomy.

    Question: What happens when one inputs the wrong aircraft weight? Answer: The aircraft sits up and begs to be allowed to get airborne before the runway ends. This happened earlier this week in Moscow. A runway inspection found that five lighting units were destroyed during the takeoff, with broken glass scattered all around. After arriving in Simferopol, the Boeing 737 was submitted to an inspection that showed three tyres had been damaged and the landing gear had glass embedded. https://samchui.com/2019/08/08/s7-boeing-737-almost-ran-out-of-runway-during-takeoff-at-moscow-airport/#.XU7xNONKjIU

    Nature In Your Backyard

    Frogs. I don't have a pond, my neighbours don't have a pond and yet we have frogs. The back door is usually wide open during the summer months and many times I've caught them in the kitchen. When I water the flower beds they are in there and start croaking. One summer afternoon I was planting in the back garden and it started raining. An old tea-tray I used to carry the potted plants on was left out overnight. It filled up with rainwater and the following morning it was full of frogspawn. I put it in a bucket and emptied it in a brook about 500 metres away. Where the bloody hell do they come from?
