I've highlighted the word that makes me a bit uneasy here. . . I'll second that. The west does not have a good record of hitting the correct targets, or of havin...

The Polonium 210 is presently coating most of London; the radiation it gives off is very short range and is relatively harmless. It has a short half life so just hold your breath and don't eat anything for 6 months and you'll be fine. :D Present theory is that he may have poisoned himself by acciden...

I'm now out of rucsack, but still in spoons. So, given the linmitations;

Canary Wharf


This is only possible because I quenched earlier, but still risks much since the DLR is now in play. For the more adventurous, City Airport is now reachable . . .

I don't believe a single god could do it, you would need a team. Any god with an idea like that is going to be on to something else long before it is finished, and completer/finisher god would never have thought beyond a small, tidy universe.

Actually no, I'm fine with kittenwars. stepfordgirls.com just seems too pink and controlling, too nice, too "oooh lets be girly". I know it is for 8 -12 year olds but there seems nothing aspirational there other than having nice hair and owning all the dolls. Why no "Rosie the Riveter...
