    The Masked Tulip got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in Football star goes missing over English channel.   
    The weather forecast last night was showing a large band of heavy snow across South Wales from basically the Severn as far West as Swansea and north to the Beacons.
    If the pilot was alive it would be interesting asking him what his plan was if, upon reaching his destination, visibility made it impossible to land and/or if Cardiff was closed.

    Wilko do a £2 bag of special mix, with blackbirds and robins on the front. It's got oats, sultanas etc, it looks like muesli and they love it. I'm just worried that one day I might forget what I'm doing and put it in my cereal bowl and add milk.
    If you want to see your blackbirds excited give them some bacon rind

    Single engine aircraft - check.
    Single pilot - check.
    Widest part of the Channel to cross - check.
    Bitterly cold sea temperatures - check.
    No survival suits - check.
    Night time - check.
    Icing conditions already reported earlier at 3,000 feet - check.
    Severe weather warning, ice and snow conditions forecast en route and at destination - check.
    Part of the world where cold and warm air mixing is known to result in low visibility conditions - check.
    Saved a few quid on the Eurostar or a Ryanair flight though.

    Pilot landing at night, lit by Moon, on sea like Chesley Sullenberger possible.
    Dinghy on board possible. 
    Rescue by passing Iranian migrants possible.
    Still hope.

    Hideous in looks or personality? 
    Reality TV is all about personality - i.e. whether someone is a hit with the public. A loud mouth gobby chubby woman, for example, might be a huge hit with a certain section of the public if that audience are loud mouth, gobby chubby women themselves.

    Sheet ice on all of the roads today. The school run was carnage.
    Highlight was an artic trying to turn and then serenely sliding sideways towards a load of waiting cars. You could sense fifty sphincters tightening instantly as it came towards them while the artic driver was wearing a distinct 'oh fuck' expression.
    Thankfully for everyone cars and undergarments, it stopped about four inches from the nearest car.

    The Masked Tulip got a reaction from InLikeFlynn in Think i saw a UFO today.   
    A lot of these things are insects really close to the lens. The lens does not pick them up immediately so they appear to come out of no-where at high speed and disappear super fast. Then there are tricks of light refracting on the lense.
    I wish the guy in these videos would talk faster but then his long videos would be over really quickly. I look forward to his video on supermarket trolleys filmed by a 2 buck drone camera from half a mile away.

    That should confuse the natives. Probably the first time lots of them will have seen snow.

    I could not possibly comment.
    But lots of female presenters, journos and actresses I have known have been in relationships with head of TV depts, senior TV producers or politicians prior to getting their big break role / jobs.
    Or they are the daughter, niece, etc of the above.
    Must be pure coincidence.

    There are some people who want to be known as a transwoman. 
    There are also some who want to be known as Barbara and just get on with their life.

    Seems incresingly like a desperate and badly thought out - it is the establishment after all - to divert attention from UK involvement in the Clinton stuff by trying to force the Russia bogeyman agenda.

    Full power pickup/drop offs are quite normal for mountain pilots (got a few on GoPro myself), but you need mad skills and balls of steel to do it. Heard a story of an avalanche control crew setting timed charges to initiate an avalanche (v similar to the above video) when the blade clipped the snow and the machine tobogganed to the base of the slope. It remained upright and relatively undamaged. Then the explosives went off and down came the avalanche. Talk about unlucky!

    Hi!
    I am not sure what a bus is, but the Space Shuttle was a 'Space bus'!
    I went to both ends of the Space Shuttle, and the Moon did not appear any nearer! The Moon is very far away, and big!
    Did you know that if you hold your arm out, you can cover the Moon with your thumb?
    Now imagine a very big thumb! That's how big the Moon is!
    I love exclamation marks!
    Did I mention I was on the Space Shuttle?
     
    Saying 'beep' and 'over' to y'all!

    Thanks Tim!
    Can you estimate it's size in fractions of "the size of Wales". I like to be exact!
    Failing that the number of "bus lengths" will have to do.

    Hi! lunarnaut Tim Peake here!
    It's a Hypersonic Supergirl Vampire Monster Killer Moon, according to the So-Called BBC website, where the 'science' journalists hacks know everything.

    I have seen the Moon, I have been in space! It looks even bigger when you get near to it!
    Not as big as space though, which is even bigger the Moon!

    Did I mention I'm an astronaut?
