Uli is right. Always take in an unwanted pet. Vets always have contacts to animals that need re-homing. Cats don't need walking :-))

They've probably got enough sense to live on Mars rather than Earth!!!

Post:
Last year, scientists spotted signs which offered a hint that there is a huge, unseen world lurking at the edge of our solar system – ‘Planet Nine’.

The giant, hidden planet is thought to be 10 times more massive than Earth – and on an orbit which takes 10,000 or 20,000 years to go round the sun.

But the story of Planet 9 might be even odder than first believed – as scientists say it may once have been a ‘rogue’, free-roaming planet which was captured by our solar system.
It's all conjecture, no proof at all. Why are people so wanting it to be true???

As far as I'm aware there is no evidence that the pacific was formed in that way William. But it has been long thought that a collision with a Mars size object, maybe Nibiru, did cause a chunk of earth to break off and form the moon.

It is similar with the Gulf of Mexico being formed by a large meteor, can't be proved.

In thick fog they can also warn you that you are approaching a pedestrian hazard. You will also find the lines in the middle of the road are longer and the gaps shorter, another clue you are approaching a hazard.

At our present level of technical knowledge and expected level in the the next 100 years or so, no Bob, no time soon. Unless there is a miraculous breakthrough in physics which is not expected then mankind will be restricted to exploring our solar system.

Yes in time I expect we will be abe to send a man to Mars and bring him back, at present we have enough trouble landing wheeled robots there and keeping them working. Not through lack of solar power, they didn't bother to fit windscreen wipers on the sensors because of the dust Doh!!

Elsewhere we can continue to send orbiting satellites/probes to the outer planets, not that we gain that much info from them that solves any universal riddles. Then again even with a light drive why would we want to send an 8 year return mission to the nearest star system Alpha Centauri with no evidence that any intelligent life exists there anyway?

Nope, either mankind makes a giant breakthrough, or ET shows up and tells us how. How likely is either?

I agree, stay on earth an enjoy dark chocolate :-))

The Little Ice Age (LIA) was a period of cooling that occurred after the Medieval Warm Period. While it was not a true ice age, its term was introduced into scientific literature. It has been conventionally defined as a period extending from the 16th to the 19th centuries, or from about 1600 to about 1850. The NASA Earth Observatory notes three particularly cold intervals: one beginning about 1650, another about 1770, and the last in 1850, all separated by intervals of slight warming.

The first recorded frost fair was in 1608. The most celebrated frost fair occurred in the winter of 1683–84 During the worst frost recorded in England. The Thames was completely frozen for two months, with the ice reaching a thickness of 11 inches (28 cm) in London. Solid ice was reported extending for miles off the coasts of the southern North Sea (England, France and the Low Countries), causing severe problems for shipping and preventing the use of many harbours. Near Manchester, the ground was frozen to 27 inches; in Somerset, to more than four feet.

Another Great Frost, was an extraordinarily cold winter in Europe in late 1708 and early 1709, and was the coldest European winter during the past 500 years. The severe cold occurred during the time of low sunspot activity known as the Maunder Minimum. It was recorded in Upminster, near London, a low of −12 °C (10 °F) on the night of 5 January 1709, the lowest ever measured since taking readings in 1697. Contemporaries in the weather observation field in Europe likewise recorded lows down to −15 °C (5 °F).

The last frost fair of 1814 began on 1 February, and lasted four days. An elephant was led across the river below Blackfriars Bridge.
Oh woe and gnashing of teeth

Cold

Oh more wringing of hands

Colder

Ooops it's OK, we've changed our mind, we over reacted :-) It's them newspapers again!!
