A bit sad they didn't get to taste them. Why on earth would they not be safe to eat?!

I suppose there's a risk of changes to the structure and introduction of things which humans are not immune to. A marvellous development but I am rather anti having humans going to muck up other planets after ruining this one.

just looking at there set up it is obvious why it was failure.
I would explain it but most bakers here can see the obvious
reason this experiment failed.

Experience over here at a mere 1300 mts above sea level is often interesting in that cooking times are longer.
I´m puzzled by why they didn´t try them. What could possibly happen to flour , chocolate and sugar??

In the UK health and safety is commonly referred to as ‘elf and safety’

Would you care to enlighten me on what a "Vertically Challenged Person" is?
Is it someone over 7ft 3ins?

All Chinese to me, Scullion!
So how would one describe a person over 7ft 3?
" Stratospherically Challenged"?

They only seem to have baked 4 p, for different times, if they ate them there wouldn’t be enough to do the science

The picture is a stock one, misleading

that will never catch on while very tall uses fewer letters than vertically does - and overextend is an active verb.

tall people are vertically challenged, too. they have to duck going through doors, bend further to pick things up, always get asked to get things from high shelves or change lightbulbs, expected to be good at basketball, have difficulty getting 'off the peg' clothes that fit and are often refused from fairground rides - it's not easy being tall.

A few years ago, I visited a bottle kiln , that had been converted into an industrial museum. The doorways were quite small. One man was quite tall. He approached the doorway, and the guide shouted - "duck, duck"! You need to know how they talk there to make sense of that.

Oh what a shame! I can imagine he'd have looked magnificent in a kilt. I'm always trying to persuade Mr S to try wearing one. He's not tall but he does have good legs and I do think a man with good legs can wear a kilt well. :D
