MARK OF THE MOLE

Sitting in a cafe in Stokes Croft, Bristol, with Farmer Glitch this morning eating a fried breakfast and a mango smoothie, I was thrilled to read in the paper that the Japanese were building a Mole-Machine that could theoretically drill 6 miles below the surface in search of new forms of life...

Bloody Hell! It's like something out of Thunderbirds...apparently, The Mole weighs 76000 tons or some similarly colossal amount and is 2/3rds the size of The Titanic. But this isn't a static drill, it's an actual mobile (albeit unmanned) vehicle. Fantastic...

Can we also have some monorails, orbital space-platforms and undersea cities now, please?

MELTING MOVIES #2

Ah, I knew I had this lying around the house somewhere...



The tag-line below the title reads: "It melts".

And on the back it says: "The Ultimate Melt Movie!" and "If you've never seen a Melt Movie before, then be prepared!"

Tune!
