Bem

Found this posted on Facebook, cover of a Manga comic with the episode with Bem. I'm shocked that Tezuka drew Bem in the buff! https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/54799473_10155920450976560_1428695736865783808_o.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_ht=scontent-atl3-1.xx&oh=b7bf036d71e1ec8ca4a69610f...

Re: Go Astro Boy Go! (2019 Animated Series)

It looks like Astro won't have the fanny guns and lasers. Not sure if Dr. Blunt is based on Dr. Tenma. Are the Gordskis supposed to be Hyotantsugi? I won...

Re: A little fun at the work place

Ever get any comments from your passengers about your driving partner on the dashboard? I hope that vending machine in the bus does not contain cigarettes. What city are you in? Is that old green bus still in service, or is that a museum piece? A friend of mine worked for the transit system in Browa...

Re: Magnetic North Pole moving faster

The magnetic poles don't switch around all at once. Gradually the magnetic field will become weaker, and less defined, and there may be several north and south poles at once. Then the field will become stronger as a new south pole appears where the north pole was and visa versa. This switching of th...

Re: Magnetic North Pole moving faster

Gyro compasses still have to be aligned against magnetic once in a while (offset by the isogonic correction, same as in aircraft). It's worse for subs as they can't rely on GPS as aircraft can (except on the surface).
