• Can anyone identify this unusual aircraft?

    Flying over London, England not far from Northolt semi-military airport.. It's RAF, I believe, and it looks as though it's built to fly high with those narrow wings and extra control surfaces.

  • What is the difference between battery chargers and power adapters?

    They are not interchangable...I can't replace a 5 volt charger with a 5 volt power adapter. Why not? I thought it would be easy to find out searching the internet but I can't find the answer.... Can you explain the difference?

  • Bird "teeth"?

    I took this picture last year. It's a young robin. What are those "teeth"? Do all birds have them? http://www.flickr.com/photos/8879785@N07...

  • I need a birthday cake, London, by the weekend (22nd June) with the character of Giggle-something! (TV prog.)?

    That's basically it. I don't know which TV program or if a bakery can do it in 4 days. Most of them on the WWW want two weeks notice.
