A Bridge Too Far (And Other Such Nonsense)

I was a bit concerned when I read about a lightweight, mobile, extendable emergency bridge based on the principles of origami. Won't it go a bit soggy when it rains?

An article on the subject of the Robot Football World Cup highlighted the problems the participants have in staying upright. And exactly how is this any different from the human version??

Tests on 10 different smart watches have shown them to be susceptible to hacking. Is this really an issue? Is anybody really going to go to all that trouble just to find out the time? Just ask!!

NASA have discovered a planet they are dubbing Earth 2.0 due to its similarity to our own planet with regards to it's size and distance from its star and other such technical data. It is hoped that it may harbour life similar to us. Although with gravity double that of earth's I suspect they may be a tad shorter than us!! I'm afraid we may have missed the boat on that one. At approximately 2 billion years older than earth there's a massively high probability that any life-form similar to humans will have had more than enough time to have wiped itself about by now.

Even if Earth 2.0 could support human life they'll never establish a successful colony. No woman is going to move to a planet where just getting off the spacecraft will double her weight.

And that, sir, qualifies for comment of the month. Tremendous!!
