Inspired by warlightvet's question about evolution on the Ask Szew thread. Ask me anything on any topic and I will look it up on wikipedia for you. If it's not on wikipedia I will give you as good an answer I can type in 5-10 seconds.

Answers will, where possibly, be copy/pasted directly from wikipedia. I will not bother to remove the reference notations.

The Catbus (ネコバス, Nekobasu?) (referred to in the film as ねこのバス, Neko no basu) is a character in the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. It is a large creature, depicted as a grinning male[1] cat with a hollow body that serves as a bus, complete with windows and seats coated with fur, and a large bushy tail. The character's popularity has led to its use in a spinoff film, toys for children, an art car, and being featured in a museum, among other products and influences.




Meat Is Murder is the second studio album by the English alternative rock band The Smiths.




Adam Smith (5 June 1723 OS – 17 July 1790) was a Scottish moral philosopher and a pioneer of political economy.

He is deceased and therefore cannot possess a guitar.




A paradox is an argument that produces an inconsistency, typically within logic or common sense.[1] Most logical paradoxes are known to be invalid arguments but are still valuable in promoting critical thinking.[2]

Northern Norway is surrounded by some of the richest seas in the world, and seafood is the main source for traditional cuisine. However, agricultural produce has existed for at least 3,000 years in parts of the area (Helgeland, Salten, Lofoten, Harstad-Kvæfjord).[4] In addition to fishing, each family traditionally had a small farm with a few cows (see Pietro Querinis shipwrecked at Røst in 1432[5]), sheep or goats (goats being preferred in many places due to their superior adaptation to the rough and mountainous terrain found in much of Northern Norway) and had small grain fields (mostly barley).[6] After the introduction (and somewhat later acceptance) of potatoes from the Americas, these became a main staple in much of Northern Norway, as well as many other parts of Norway. Agriculture gradually becomes less important as a food source as one moves further north, and in the northern half (north of Balsfjord/Tromsø area) was usually of minor importance and certainly less important than fishing or Sami reindeer nomadic pastoralism. Hunting has been important ever since the stone age, and the comparatively large areas of sparsely settled valleys, fells and mountains still hold wildlife.

In the winter, the codfish comes to the coastal waters to spawn, especially to the cod fisheries of Lofoten. Mølja, boiled codfish with liver and roe, is a delicacy that today is served in the best restaurants. In the summer, the coalfish, or saithe, bites, and fresh saithe is often served on the beach, boiled in seawater over an open fire, or fried (typically the smaller coalfish). Halibut is traditional Christmas food. Most fish is served plainly poached, only accompanied by boiled potatoes, carrots and possibly fried bacon. A more particular kind of fish is "gammelsei", saithe that has been conserved for a year or more. Other traditions are lutefisk and boknafisk, the latter made from stockfish, and in Nordland often from herring.[7] Seawolf and rose fish are regarded as good food, the latter often eaten salted and poached, with the brain (krus) highly regarded, sometimes fried with onions. In addition to cod, herring and potatoes were traditional staple foods (except in the most northern area). Salmon has long traditions as food along the rivers, and also trout which are common also in the numerous lakes. In the latest decades consumption has increased in correspondence with increased salmon fish farming; smoked salmon is very popular, often on open sandwiches, alone or together with boiled or scrambled eggs or salad.[8]

Traditionally, northerners regarded shellfish and prawns as bait, but lately they have developed a taste for it, and the freshest and most succulent prawns and shellfish are easily obtainable all along the coast. Shark meat has traditionally not been used as food, even if some can grow nearly 10 metres (33 ft) long.[9] In later years, the large Red king crab has invaded Norwegian waters from the east and, having reached west to Hammerfest, are now served in the finest restaurants. The large sea bird colonies along the coast provided eggs for the local population, most of these are now protected by law. However, in Tromsø, sea gull eggs and beer from the local brewery is still a highly regarded dish to enjoy in the sun of late spring.[10]

Tender whale meat is usually served as steaks, whereas seals are an acquired taste, due to the smell. However, when processed into "Barents ham", it gets more palatable. Fresh seal meat is served at the end of the hunting season in spring, and Tromsø is the place to look for it. Reindeer are often served as finnebiff, thin slices in a cream sauce. Reindeer filets have become more popular in high-end restaurants in recent years, but the price can be prohibitive as the reindeer industry is shielded from market forces by the Norwegian government (in essence, it is treated as a vital component of Sami culture, rather than a competitive industry, which means there is little pressure to actually sell the meat products). Lamb meat from sheep following the retreating snow line up the hills and mountains to get the most nutritious fresh vegetation throughout summer is highly regarded by the locals, and research seem to indicate that a varied diet does influence the taste of the meat.[11] Game meat includes mountain hare, rock ptarmigan, willow grouse and moose.




Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (/ˌdʒoʊˈxɑr ˌtsɑrˈnaɪ.ɛf/; born July 22, 1993)[1] and Tamerlan Tsarnaev (/ˌtæmərˈlæn/; October 21, 1986 – April 19, 2013)[2][note 1] are the suspected perpetrators of the Monday, April 15, 2013, Boston Marathon bombings. The two bombs, detonated approximately 10 seconds apart, killed 3 people and injured 282[3] others.[4]




At work so won't look that up, but it's probably once.




On 22 June 2012 CERN announced an upcoming seminar covering tentative findings for 2012,[115][116] and shortly afterwards (from around 1 July 2012 according to an analysis of the spreading rumour in social media[117]) rumours began to spread in the media that this would include a major announcement, but it was unclear whether this would be a stronger signal or a formal discovery.[118][119] Speculation escalated to a "fevered" pitch when reports emerged that Peter Higgs, who proposed the particle, was to be attending the seminar.[120][121] On 4 July 2012 both of the CERN experiments announced they had independently made the same discovery:[122]

Probably CERN, I think it's in Switzerland.




No, the next one I think will be a reference to a TV show. I can't think of anything else bus-related.

Film4 shows 'em loads, Totoro one of the most frequent. They just re-ran them all, with and without subtitles, I have a lot of them recorded from it. I prefer them with subtitles, especially the "adult" ones.

My Neighbour Totoro = Grave of the Fireflies :'( = Only Yesterday = Ocean Waves

Spirited Away

Porco Rosso = Whisper of The Heart

Castle of Cagliostro

Laputa: Castle in The Sky = Cat Returns (Need to rewatch these two as I don't remember much of them.)



Can't remember too much of Princess Mononoke.

Stopped watching Tales From Earthsea after 5-10 minutes but I don't like fantasy much. Also I was tired.

Need to watch the rest.

They're all good (except maybe Earthsea), it's simply that some are more ambitious that others. For that reason, there is a fairly tight consensus on which are the best.
