Electric Car Mini Adventure
The famous advert for the BMW owned Mini depicts plucky little cars getting into scrapes and escaping by using their speed, engineering quality and a bit of panache.

As we regard the state of western civilisation with it's 'liberating' internet that puts all the information in the world
(and fart lighting videos) at our fingertips, lives lived online by increasingly isolated and dysfunctional people, the ability of authoritarian governments to control information and the politicians parallel and contradictory exhortations to reduce our carbon footprint and start spending to get the economy back in growth we are entitled to ask "Why are you telling us everything is great when experience tells us everthing is very, very crappy."

Science - A Career For Tossers
Science is a career for tossers. That sounds like a sweeping generalisation so let's clarify.
