Here's the situation round these parts. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25963002
Cambridge is just in the 175-200% area.

So that's where it all went! Could you folks be convinced to return the misdirected shipment to its intended recipients?

Please drop by and you can have as much as you want. Remember to bring a big bucket with you.

Record breaking rains hit Queensland's far north
In the last seven days 1.2 metres of rain has been recorded in Kowanyama.
The weather bureau says it is the highest monthly total since 1918.
Meanwhile we've had <20mm this year so far, and we're not the worst off.

Most of what fell at Kowanyama will have gone out to sea by now, but it's still raining gently there this morning, if you want to take a bucket. I'll pass, it's 3000km by road & I think SWMBO has something else for me to do today, but you can have my share.

Hey! Learning a programming language doesn't involve many of the complex and subtle differences/similarities between natural languages.

Sorry if this has been posted before. This is the first I've seen of it.

The description of the cables supporting the telescope is making me think of the SF "Gaea" series by John Varley.
