Where wuz Claymore?

Postby marisca » Fri Dec 27, 2019 8:56 pm

Due to a vicious bout of lurgy visited upon me by my awfy cute grand-daughter I have been watching umpteen episodes of "The Crown" on Netflix. Series 3 seems to be the latest round and the lady with whom Claymore's name has been linked here on more than one occasion has now grown from childhood to (overtly) sexual maturity. Obviously there is a major plot twist coming in Series 4 but who is going to play the part of our sailor who has played such a major part in the royal life? Perhaps the forum could suggest suitable candidates for this starring role?

I was thinking more of Danny Devito or Bob Hoskins.

Claymore is also resting in the land of near permanent darkness

.
Did you know that if you place one testicle on the top of an empty whisky bottle and heat the bottom with a lighter, it sucks your testicle into the bottle, if you did know this, do you know how to reverse it, asking for a friend

Before we get into the physics of it all
I have to ask you, Dear Boy, Why would you do this?
You are worrying me.

Speaking without any personal experience, but purely from the engineering involved, surely suction would be created by stopping heating the bottle and letting it cool down? Spraying the bottle with cold water (thus partially emulating Watt's separate condenser) might speed things up, but might risk the bottle breaking. Reversal could be achieved by heating the bottle up, but testicle ejection might be explosive.

I have to ask, why would anyone want to do this?
