a survey for you all...
« on: 04/03/2006 16:18:22 »
hi science friends! this is not technically a science question but as an art and design student i am interested in advertising and i was actually interested how all of you discovered the naked scientists? i happened to stumble across them online as i am not from cambridgeshire but how did you all discover them? through the internet? from the radio? do they have any posters or flyers that caught your eye? please let me know. thank you! :)

I was looking for another science forum where I could adopt a different persona to the trite, offensive, aggressive, patronising, presumptuous one I typically adopt. I found this one (the site, not the persona) using a google search.

I listened to the radio show 1st. I sent in a question which didn't get answered on air; but Chris sent me a reply email asking if I'd post it in the forum. Prior to that I didn't even know it existed.

Hi Eth - you got your question answered tonight though eh?


And I'm holding the mouldy bread Q for when we do a microbiology show because it's perfect for that...

Oh, and I FOUNDed the site, does that count in the survey?!

Who's that Chris bloke ?...acting up as if he owns the place....DOH !!!

I wish I could remember how I found this site...NO, I wasn't looking for 'naked' stuff....I must have heard the show first and then came to investigate....I'm still deciding if I should stay or not...I do so hate rushing in to things !!

Chris - indeed you did, thank you. Mind you, it's left me even more confused. Do I have to do molecular analysis on all my waste plastic to work out what can be recycled & what can't?
After the show I looked on the web to check the council's carrier bag recycling policy. On there it said it's because the plastic clogs the machines; yet the circular we got said it was due to the bio-degradable bags needing sorting out. Now I don't know what to believe.
By the way, did my dead fish question ever get asked? I missed a few weeks.
