    I have an irresistible urge to squirt super glue into my bellybutton and glue myself to kickerconspiracy.

    I wouldn't. Takes forever to get it off and it hurts.

    I speak, unfortunately, from recent experience.
    What? Is this like a thing now?
    My gluing myself was a dumb accident - and it wasn't in my belly button.

    A question for the braniacs. My house is a pretty constant 19c, give or take a degree, no more.

    So why is it that I can pick up a bottle of wine from the side and it feels really cold (it's actually 13c). Same goes for things like plates. What's the dealio?

    You're energy supplier is diddling you and only heating your air. A common scam.

    So I assume the point there is that heat wont transfer from the air to certain materials?

    I'm not sure it applies though does it. Energy would be continually lost from the air and replaced by the heating system. Certain materials should take longer to reach that temperature (requiring more energy), but surely they should all get there eventually assuming there was a sufficient heat source?

    Or is it that the air cannot carry enough energy to heat these materials to ambient?

    It's nearly 20 years since I was in school... give me a break!

    A constant *energy* source will overcome the specific heat capacity of the wine eventually. But your thermostat cuts of the energy emitted in to the room when the air in the room reaches 19 degrees, so it does not have a constant energy source. The specific heat capacity is a bit like the resistance of something to heating up. The energy input to the room is enough to maintain the room air at 19 deg, but not to heat up the wine.

    edit: and I'm trying to remember science lessons from nearly 20 years ago here too so :p

    Moving on, I'm watching an Indian film... they seem to sing a lot. I'm surprised they ever get anything done.

    And Russell Crowe in that new film he's in, the one about sad people or summat

    Edit: sorry just seen the title, it's about some misery called Les Miserables

    Can't believe it's near enough Friday already.

    Must have been the quickest week of my life.

    Yay for long hours.

    Yeah, but you'll be dead soon.

    That's how it happens... as you get older time just goes faster and faster until one day you wake up and you're in a nursing home waiting for your copy of the daily mail.

    Annoying, I can't find the original article I read on the subject, which was nice and friendly. This is similar though:

    Does the creepy "You and your teenage daughter" Disneyland advert really have the tagline: "Wet dreams come true"?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I don't think I've ever seen an Indian film that wasn't technically a musical. Given they redub even the bits in films where no one is singing though, I think I'll take a film where they sing all the way through over the alternative.

    Re materials, chopsen's talking out of his arse. Even if the heating system is just 'topping up' the temperature, the delta between an objects temperature and its surroundings controls how much energy is transferred. The only other factor is insulation which does nothing to stop the energy entering, but slows its path through the insulation to the thing it's insulating, thus raising its temperature on the outside, and actually reducing the heat coming in.

    On the other hand, many objects are actually quite good conductors of heat. Classically, metals are good conductors (of heat, as well as electricity), but evidently clay, plastic, glass and varnished wood are also. Objects that conduct heat feel cold to the touch, because we are a lot warmer than them, and we feel our fingertips losing heat when we touch them.

    I believe that's what's happening with your plates, though it's possible they're somehow stored on something which is somehow connected to the outside, so constantly losing heat to the outside. However, the fact you've measured the wine means its actually cold, not just subjectively so. Did you perhaps buy the wine today?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Nice, think I'll have a read of that over lunch tomorrow.

    No, thanks to my leg being all fucked up I'd have been lucky to to have left the house today.

    It is stored fairly close to an outside wall though.

    I want a USB 3.0 stick that looks a good as this.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.
