Watching a catch-up of the C4 Moon Landing Live programme.

It’s weird because

It is largely in colour.
Well over half the people you see it it are dead
You know the ending.
There isn't a Worzel Gummage President twatting away in the background*.


*Yeah. There was a lying shit president at the time, but he wasn’t as bad as the straw hairdo cunt.

Interested in this as a route as I have family in the Real Capital ™ who can put me up at the halfway.

The prospect of going through Shropshire and whatnot is really appealing. Interested to see how it shapes up 🙌

Waited in all morning for a delivery scheduled for 17/07, i.e. tomorrow. :facepalm:

At least you can go out tomorrow safe in the knowledge that when the delivery fails to arrive, you have preemptively wasted a day :thumbsup:

Is that based on the story of Jan Baalsrud?  Gets most of a chapter in David Howarth's "The Shetland Bus"; Howarth later wrote "We Die Alone" just about Baalsrud's escape.

I have to adjust the rear view mirror in the car morning and afternoon, such is my shrinkage/hunchage from being propped at a computer all day.

Not a daft question, but in the mornings on my commute, I feel well balanced on Olive, but after working all day, on the return journey, I feel too stretched out. I reduced my stem from 100 to 90, but I still feel stretched. But if I go out for a day ride, I'm fine. My commute is approx 50 km return

The body does change over the day, tho it depends a lot from person to person, and body part to body part. I know when I used to sell hiking boots, we used to advise that people buy shoes in the afternoon as their feet would be slightly longer then.

It's plausible that the spine compresses slightly over the course of a day. Tho I have no research to back this up. I'd be interested to see what you find out.

And as a fitting mark of respect, the 50th anniversary of the lauch of Apollo 11 has been marked by a partial lunar eclipse which looked quite good from where I stood with binoculars looking at it :thumbsup:

So did anyone mention the moon landings were faked and the earth is flat. ;)

I was watching the BBC4 multipart space race documentary earlier and thought "Dang! These actors are good1"
