Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But thanks for the heads up! You caught me at a bad moment - the weekend had kicked in and I resolved to let the brains have some necessary rest and dedicate myself to some strenuous handy work as cutting wood and cooking (on electricity. Not on wood.). But - and this may seem the appropriate moment - when walking the dog yesterday, I amusedly wondered whether I should lift up your string of comments into a diary, title it "Solving the Mysteries of Science on a Friday Afternoon" and use it as a platform to ditch in all kind of new comments and discoveries. It's always a pleasure when you start digging into a subject - something new pops up every time.

I am working, mentally, on a reply, but I also need to get a source right first. Alternatively, have you read Bill Bryson's "A short history of nearly everything"?
