Is this that tomato-throwing party or the bull-running party?

The bull runnings are now. I like when someone gets 'horned' by a bull (There has been only one injury by bull horn so far this year). I watch them on TV, and I enjoyed today's run as one bull was faster than the rest and created some dangerous situations.

A fact about the bull-running track: It has a brief, wrong-way overlap with the St. James way. Both run through Calle Mercaderes.

We can't... for the time being. But it don't have to be contradictory to current physics. It is even fascinating that nobody has ever seen black hole, but current physics can easily explain how it should work and everything complies therewith so far.

wow

Strange weather in the Netherlands. Last week had record high minimum temperatures at 24 °C. Last night there was frost.

Not really. The singularity is contradictory to current physics. Our physics state that it must be an adimensional point where some properties diverge (mass, density, gravitational pull). Basically our physics predicts something it can't describe.

It's not the first time it happens, although the last one is probably the worst in recent times.
Here a tornado in Venice in 2012:


The worst ever happened in 1970 and killed 21 people.

The worst one was a F5, in 1930.

How's the driving coming along? Been stuck behind Dutch caravans? Driven 50 mph on a 50 km/h road? :P

Give him a break man! He's still trying to figure out how to change from neutral to 1st gear. ;-)

We don't have to go that far. I might be wrong but point similar to singularity could be even in the middle of Earth. And we do not know what would happen if Earth was hollow in the middle and someone fell there. Would he be floating or ripped off?
