One sunny afternoon the team were lucky enough to sample the Bat’s wares.
Here’s what we thought:…An incurable real ale lover, I am an occasional customer to this time-warped-yet honoured bar.
Secondly, they’re tight lipped and evasive when the evidence challenges their preconceived ideas. Apparently this possibility is far too shocking to be mentioned in polite gradualist circles.
They openly admit there are “impact” structures and when pushed they concede there might be three or four “impact” structures in India. The mainstream narrative is that by 1700 BCE most of the Indus Valley Civilisation cities had been abandoned and that the civilization finally collapsed around 1300 BCE as the population migrated overland in an Easterly direction [driven by the irresistible linguistic jet stream].
The huge gaping holes in the Indian historical narratives present the independent researcher with a few challenges.
Firstly, the mainstream is coy and coquettish whenever the conversation turns to Indian craters. hl=en By dating the Kachchh (Luna) crater to around 2,000 BC the mainstream has placed itself in a very uncomfortable position because the date is within spitting distance of the disintegration of the Indus Valley Civilisation which is said to have gone into decline around 1,900 BC.
But the good news is that these three or four Indian “impacts” are really very curious. For example, the physical dimensions of the Kachchh (Luna) crater don’t conform to the conventional concept of an impact crater. Reimold 69th Annual Meteoritical Society Meeting – 2006 diameter of the structure is estimated at 11 km and basement rocks are predominantly composed of granitoids. Pati, Wolf Uwe Reimold, Christian Koeberl and Puniti Pati Meteoritics & Planetary Science – 43, Nr 8, 1383–1398 – 2008 lithic and mineral clasts within the melt breccia exhibit diagnostic shock metamorphic features, including multiple sets of planar deformation features (PDFs) in quartz and feldspar, ballen-textured quartz, occurrences of coesite, and feldspar with checkerboard texture.
She will spend six weeks on the road sampling the dating delights of some of the world’s greatest cities; New York, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Paris and Stockholm, before reporting back their findings upon their return to Britain.That makes her the perfect candidate to help us discover what we as Brits could be doing to date better.Only one in four of us think that we are good daters compared to other nationalities.To celebrate giving away 10,000 free dating memberships for life (have you got yours yet?), we scoured the UK for the best free and low cost date ideas, activities and apps to... We last met Bridget Jones as she was sailing off into the sunset with Mark Darcy. And she’s ready to get back into the dating scene again.
