If someone was really clever they'd've worked out how to make a ship with wave-barrages for fuel.

No, no I have not.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

No, no I have not.

It was pretty interesting, Obama was the one who chased Attenborough down and then interviewed him, rather than the other way around. I don't think you can watch it on iPlayer, fairly certain that's UK only. Worth a go though: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... dent-obama

All that remains is to show that biological systems replicate in such a way as to satisfy the minimal criteria required for evolution to apply to them, something which has already been adequately shown time and again. At this point, we've pretty much proven that not only can evolution happen, it pretty much must happen since it's basically impossible to prevent it from happening.

He has done what no other Brit has done since Jackie Stewart in 1973 and won the thing more than once, though.

And guess what: Jackie Stewart was knighted.
