Just remembered something: "Ooh aah, Paul McGrath's Da." Might be hard to explain to non-Irish how sweet that moment was.
Narrowly beating "Das Science Haus!", "Jean et Jules Faisent Une Science!" And "Donde esta el Science, amigos?!"
Congrats to everyone on Science Club for winning Best General program at the European Science Television awards. 1/2
The cream will rise to the top, as they say in the pig-jizz industry.
Great to see Twitter re-ordering itself in terms of who has the best pig-jizz joke this morning.
Drinking red wine and listening to Prince. Right now, all my new ideas seem hilaaaaaarious.

Do you read @litunbelievable
? Stupid, and ultimately ridiculous responses to @TheOnion
I mean it's just people telling jokes and that, but wow, they get angry about it. It's so much fun to watch.
All right, i come clean. My guilty pleasure is to read any article in The Guardian about comedy and then just BASK in the angry comments.
Such a pleasure attending the @ICAPCharityDay
today for @AspinallCharity
. Well done to all involved.
I now have people complaining that I'm bullying the troll. So, for the avoidance of doubt, again. NO TWEETS TO THAT GUY!
Right everybody! like I said before! No tweets to that troll. Not even in a reply to me and him!
Anyway folks, he's not worth the attention. It's just nice when they put a photo of themselves online too.
If you absolutely promise not to send tweets (remember -No MOB!)...
I just want to bask in the joy of the man sending me tweets tonight about what a cunt I am, versus his website as a music teacher….
Here's the rules! No mob! No sending tweets! No fighting my fights because I'm well able myself, right?! But I want to share this...
Comet Ison is on the next Stargazing. But like all our guests we send it skirting past the sun first, to train for meeting @ProfBrianCox

They seem to be sorting this out. I think I speak for the entire carriage when I say "phew!" All big smiley faces here now.
I'm really sad that Johnathan has disappointed the man on the 9.14, and I hope this loud, angry phone call to him sorts it all out.
Off to host the winners announcement of the Winton Science book prize at the Royal society. 6 superb books though, check them out. #scibooks
Ah, that was heartbreaking. 20 seconds from the win.
Jesus wept. What a first half for Ireland.
Practical game dev question -- Can vampires use the Kinect?
Hugely enjoying your book. Looking forward to seeing you on Stargazing live in January too!
Jesus, you're right. “@RichardWiseman

You are all beautiful people. I must go but will check through these later. Mainly: fire, snot, angular momentum, wanking and toast.
Nice. Can use the toaster to light it too. “@daithi_clark
light a candle and see how the liquid wax forms!”
Will put a toaster in the bag with cat and the bubbles! “@PaigeOnTour
will toast land butter side down?”
Do that thing where you blow upwards to make your fringe ripple and see if zero-g makes your hair stay upright. No, wait...
Already being examined seriously on the same flight! “@Noodlefish
What happens to champagne / beer in zero G?”
Okay! I'll get the cat to try first. “@WeeMadAggie
Ooh! Bring bubbles to blow!”
Right! smuggle a cat aboard. It's on the list. “@monkeypiesadist
if you drop a cat in zero gravity does it land on its feet?”
Hey Scienceketeers! If we have time, anything you'd like me to test in Zero G tomorrow? Take burping and farting as read...
About to go for dinner, before sleep, before Zero-g flight tomorrow. Must choose a meal that returns well. Excited though.
