Is it me or has there been a lack of argument on this Forum. Even Jimbob and Doc Beaver seem to have called a trous. Frankly, I enjoy a good verbal exchange and I'm getting bored. Anyone for a battle? It can be on whatever subject you like. Ranting is also perfectly acceptable. I don't take American express though as I like to take my time.

Lets Debate Now and THEN
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Just as soon as the physicists solve the 3 body problem they will be justified in their claim that theirs is the only true science.
In the meantime, those of us who are prepared to put up with reasonable aproximations will continue to do things like chemistry and biology.

Anyway, I did chemistry because it gives you the best chance of blowing stuff up in the laboratory.

BTW,

As can plainly be seen by the picture of the horse, Dr. Beaver is building his attacks, as always, on distortions. In this case it is an optical distortion.

PROOF: the horse is very disproportional BUT the horse's shadow is quite normal, considering the angle of the sun. Again, a personal muck-up by the Beaver.

As can plainly be seen by the picture of the horse, Dr. Beaver is building his attacks, as always, on distortions. In this case it is an optical distortion.

PROOF: the horse is very disproportional BUT the horse's shadow is quite normal, considering the angle of the sun. Again, a personal muck-up by the Beaver.

Are you implying that horses do not have big mouths?

Not every animal is like you, Doc.

More's the pity.
