Science and Mathematics
Science, scientists, Turing; atoms, big bang, Higgs boson; cosmic radiation; dark matter and dark energy; maths, fractals, polyhedra
Politics & Opinions
Religions, monarchies, state-sponsored brutality against other nations (armed forces) and their own citizens (police) are abominations; most states (including so-called “democracies”) are corrupt, with governments and law-enforcers uncontrolled – this is just a sample of my totally reasonable bigotry
Trains and London Underground (with spoof maps, real working timetables and track plans), planes and airports (longest and shortest scheduled flights), and especially old London buses, trolleybuses and trams; and some daft road and other signs
Paintings, poems, songs, fiction, plays, Chaucer, Shakespeare, films, radio, music (Beethoven to 10cc)
☄ Astronomical Objects & Concepts
Sun, planets, dwarf planets, moons, rings, asteroids, Kuiper belt, quasi-satellites, Hill sphere, comets, stars, nebulae, galaxies; theories; Lagrange points; resonances
I hope you enjoy these four stories from my own pen (or rather my own keyboard)

George Gammer’s photography, the Earth in Space (aurorae, time-lapse photos of the sky, satellite images), geology, the climate and weather (clouds and storms), beautiful scenery, the Galápagos Islands, animals (birds, cats and dogs, fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, insects), plants, roads, buildings (London and many weird ones), a trip up the River Thames, miscellaneous art, last moments, BBC’s best of 2014...
There are a lot of spoofs all over the place in this web site. However I can assure you that these ads are perfectly genuine
