The Daily Telegraph occasionally, just occasionally, turns up an absolute blinder… something above the usual “Concerned, from Tunbridge Wells,” or “I was shocked and horrified to read….

This week it’s underwater dogs. Nothing more complex than getting dogs to jump into a swimming pool (relatively easy… most dogs I have known love swimming about in water… especially dirty, smelly water…) and then taking a photograph of them underwater… Its all the idea of a brilliant artist called Seth Casteel, and you can find the rest of the images here on the Daily Telegraph website.

It  also seems that the DT has a bit of soft spot for silly animal pictures… a casual peek about the site over the weekend reveals Dogs in Halloween Costumes, and Surfing Dogs.

I remain etc,

Petrol from thin air… a masterpiece of British technology

This one may have escaped your attention, hidden away in the depths of the Daily Telegraph, but it has the potential to change the world as we know it… essentially, some cunningly clever British scientists working for a small company in the north of England has developed the “air capture” technology to create synthetic petrol using only air and electricity.  Cool egh! Theoretically if the process was attached to a green energy source such as a wind turbine or solar electricity, they could make petrol that actually captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during its manufacture process… and the petrol produced can go strait into any normal petrol car! 

‘Experts’ have already hailed the breakthrough as a potential “game-changer” in the battle against climate change and a saviour for the world’s energy crisis, but thus far they have only actually produced about five litres of petrol in just less than three months … so its not going to rival the hegemony of the oil giants such as Shell or BP any time soon, but the theory is there.
