    I suspect that Ialdabaoth created Imperfection so that on this day Sun, 8 Nov
    2009 13:58:10 -0000, one purporting to be "N_Cook" <diverse@tcp.co.uk> could
    write :


    For: news:uk.local.hampshire

    Well! Here we are again folks.
    It is now general knowledge that this newsgroup was set up
    by the government to plug the gaps created by the abysmal
    failure of their Psychiatric Care in the Community Policy.
    The uk.local hierarchy was devised to provide an outlet for
    individuals who would otherwise spending their days sitting
    at home wearing an aluminium foil hat waiting for a full moon
    to rise. It was hoped that this would reduce the incidence
    of nutters out there howling at the moon and frightening the
    shit out of their neighbours. Another of HMGs aims and
    objectives was to provide a distraction to take their minds
    of the problem of who they were going to knife to death next.
    Unfortunately, this group has been taken over by the
    articulate lower middle classes who have succeeding in
    driving HMGs target audience away.Independant research has
    shown that it was the amount and quality of the inane drivel,
    called small talk which the middle classes are adept at, which
    had the effect of doing their heads in. They left to
    protect what was left of their sanity. Saddly this has happened
    to the whole of uk.local. hierarchy.

    This newsgroup is a very good example of another HMG failure.

    I've been on usenet since 1995 so have seen it all

    Maybe a venue nearer yourself
    http://www.cafescientifique.org/
    often speaker at one venue turns up elsewhere in the local group at another
    date. No travelling expenses etc so somewhat surprising they get about a
    bit.
    I went to a major uni on-campus public lecture last week and only time for 4
    questions at the end. The cafe structure is usually more time devoted to
    questions, in and usually during the talk, than the talk itself

    Prof. Nils Andersson, School of Mathematics, University of Southampton

    Gravitational Waves
    With his theory of General Relativity, Einstein provided us with a new
    understanding of gravity. The key idea of the theory is that what we
    experience as gravity is, in fact, due to the geometry of space and time.
    Moreover, these concepts are no longer fixed as in Newton's physics. One of
    the most intriguing implications is that changes in gravity should move as
    waves. These "gravitational waves" would carry the imprint of the most
    violent phenomena we can think of, like colliding or exploding stars and
    even the birth of the Universe itself. In this talk I will describe the
    ongoing effort aimed at detecting these elusive waves and what we expect to
    learn from such observations in the future.
