The scariest thing I've done was to get in a plane prior to a parachute jump. The club was (in the late 1970's) full of paras in university sweatshirts and students in military fatigues, but (luckily?) it was too windy. I wouldn't have the courage now. What would you do if you won the lottery? (Apar...

I would have thought that the volume of the pop would depend on the size of the bubble and the speed(?) of its collapse. The vibration of the kettle is also a product of the movement of the boiling water, not just collapsing bubbles, but does that translate into (noticeable) sound? Over to you, Mrs ...

It scares the bejebus out of me, Moonbeam. Have you noticed the special god-speak? When was the last time you used 'proclaim' in everyday language? It's tempting though, to send them an email, at their request: If the Lord gives you a word for CLAN Gathering or you would like to give your testimony ...

Allybalder, I'm afraid I'll have to let that question hang in the air. I modified my question to exclude it> :wink: Alan. Not bad, you were on the right lines. Mrs White Craw! I'm happy to accept that answer as close enough, so well done! I'm curious though about the 'vibration' of the kettle. I tho...

Well..... You had me going for a moment! Right so far, but thats only half of it. The question remains: why does the noise reduce just before the kettle finally boils?

That was fun! When's prize-giving? I like the photo's too. OK next science question. Why is it that when a kettle is turned on, first there is silence, but then the noise grows louder and louder until just before it boils. Why is this? BTW this is not a trick question, but nor, being a non-scientist...

I'm not that astonished by the quotation cited. Isn't it a bit like saying "who's got a lot of money? The rich! That's who!" Also, like attracts like. None of my friends are astronauts, formula 1 drivers or ballet dancers.

And hi Lifey! You wrote: Yes, I agree Nick, the land is very often managed to make money from the huntin'shootin'fishin brigade.
