Ten HD

Would Channel Ten like to explain why promos for non-high definition programs carry a “Ten HD” logo? It was most annoying to see both Law And Order SVU and Medium advertised as high definition programs, only to find the high definition demonstration program in their place on Ten’s HD channel.

I have no problem watching the shows in standard definition, but it’s a good thing I haven’t been able to get to sleep yet or I would have relied on the advertising and setup a recording of the HD channel for those two programs, and then been incensed to find that I’d recorded two hours of unexciting scenery and music instead.

Global Warming Side-Effect Of The Day: Planetary Explosion

On the bright side, once the planet explodes, it will stop warming.

Can Earth explode as a result of Global Warming?
Dr Tom J. Chalko 1 , MSc, PhD
Submitted on 8 April 2001, revised 30 October 2004.

Abstract: The heat generated inside our planet is predominantly of radionic (nuclear) origin. Hence, Earth in its entirety can be considered a slow nuclear reactor with its solid ”inner core” providing a major contribution to the total energy output. Since radionic heat is generated in the entire volume and cooling can only occur at the surface, the highest temperature inside Earth occurs at the center of the inner core. Overheating the center of the inner core reactor due to the so-called greenhouse effect on the surface of Earth may cause a meltdown condition, an enrichment of nuclear fuel and a gigantic atomic explosion.

There are seven pages filled with the gory details of the demise of our fair planet, but the basic summary is that if the melting of the polar caps doesn’t provide enough of a “heatsink” for the planet, there will be an increase in volcanic activity, followed by a nice large planet-destroying nuclear explosion. Of course, the doctor takes so much longer to say that. It makes for some fun reading if you’ve got some spare time.
