    I went to the first showing of Star Wars in the UK at Leicester Square in 1977, aged 6.

    My father got complimentary tickets, and took me and two or three of my school friends (brave man!). And I can remember nothing whatsoever about it...:Laughing:

    I've met Ken Kier, who at the time was the President of Honda UK and Vice-President of Honda Europe. Very firm handshake IIRC.

    I once met Bob Monkhouse in a branch of M&S Simply Food in London. I also once met (and had to apologise to, not for something I'd done BTW!!) Rachel Stevens :Wub: from S Club 7 at an event I was at.

    Long story...:Smile:

    My sister went to Florida with her in November. She's a lot shorted than you think isn't she?

    ^^As I'm only 5'5 I don't remember thinking that TBH :Smile:

    She was doing a meet & greet for a few minutes after she had performed at a corporate event we were at. One of my (young) team members had a few too many drinks and decided to bore her rather with how much he loved her...:Grin:

    Funny, but a bit embarrassing!

    I'm a space nerd. I've watched every documentary I can find and I'm presently in the middle of reading "How Apollo Flew to the Moon".

    So it looks like the guy has a number of unpopular ideas. It's great to question the universe and you shouldn't dismiss an idea for being outlandish or implausible but some of these ideas are above me and others are pretty darn outlandish. If you could recommend just one thing to read or watch, what would it be?

    I wouldn't immediately dismiss unorthodox views as incorrect, he's got several heavy peer reviewed papers out and gaining a lot of traction, Physics has a problem with the quantum level, Einstein's Field Equation cannot be applied to the atomic level, it's a misnomer, String Theory is meant to try and patch it up - Haramein solves it all in a way that makes 10x more sense.

    For the space and theoretical side alone, definitely his 'Black Whole' documentary, for a broad view tieing the knowledge into the ancient world and attempting to prove that our ancestors knew more about the make-up of our universe than we do today, watch his Rogue Valley Metaphysics lecture, though it's about 8 hours long :Laughing:

    When going against the grain, all ground-breaking science is initially smeared as pseudo-science - draw your own conclusions :Smile:

    Cosmos by Carl Sagan.

    Not seen any of the new one yet, but there are number of Neil deGrasse Tyson vids on YouTube that are keeping me entertained.
