    You can stop worrying. The UK suffers hundreds of mini tremors per annum. But there hasn't been a tremor ever to substantially disturb a nuclear power plant [even if we secretly wanted one to, especially Hinkley Point C] in the UK. We just happen to live in an extremely stable part of the world. Part the reason why France, just across the water, is 95% nuclear.

    What we need is some rare small animal, which could go extinct, if we carry on Hinkley's construction. Any zoologists around here? :D

    Rare crested Newt habitats have knowingly been destroyed by the HS2 crew. So I'm afraid to say that nobody in power actually gives a damn anymore. Screw nature, we need more jobs.

    I've got no faith in a system that has let this happen. No amount of newly planted tree's and recycled plastic bottles can make up for this destruction. Its a crime against the planet, at the most crucial time. Shame there's not half a dozen swampys on GoFundMe waiting to become eco terrorist. I'd get behind that.

    Was going to like this, but obviously, I can't. I agree with you though.

    Revealed last month and I thought OH F***, what have you done Tesla??? The next day, I saw a picture of it again, and although it still looked like a small disaster, I didn't loathe it, but started to see something in the angles that worked. One week later I looked at a picture and thought, "Jeez, how could I have been so wrong. This thing is magnificent."
    And my opinion hasn't changed since. To me it looks better every time I see it. What am I going on about? Isn't it obvious? It's that CYBRTRK:

    I know you meant that as a joke, but it is interesting. Almost the last bastion of traditional methods is the domestic construction industry. It is ripe for technological disruption. Things like rooms that know you're in them so they turn the lights on and heat to the perfect temperature when you're there for more than a few seconds. And using almost no resources to do this too. It's perfectly possible, yet we still don't do it. And if we made these homes, from the ground up to be capable of things like this, they'd be cheaper than traditional homes.
    Someone is going to come in and shake the construction industry to its core. 3D printed and kit homes are already out there. Yet we still persist with slow build bricks and mortar.

    I remember seeing the Ford Sierra driving down the road for the first time. I thought;
    'Wow, that's a nice looking car.'

    I'm not getting the same feeling with that thing. Looks like something Homer Simpson designed.

    You know, I never thought the Ford Sierra as good looking. I knew it would sell, because it was bland.

    I remember the blandness of the Sierra distinctly. It looked different to me for about 0.5 of a second. Anyone remember the looks of the Austin Montego, without a reminder picture? No [unless you mistakenly owned one], and the reason is, it took blandness to a whole new level of sameness. Go look it up. Or perhaps you shouldn't. Even heavily customised it was super boring. No wonder Austin died.
