Heh, I was talking about the website! I never even noticed there was a book for sale!!! Until I went back to check what you were talking about...

Also we have to accept that some science fiction may actually occupy a different dimensional universe to our own??
Try to imagine, for example, a universe where magic is possible and what we might consider 'normal' physics simply doesn't apply.
On the other hand we are perhaps less willing to accept 'bad' science if it is intended to mislead. Such as 'An Inconvenient Truth' which was not only hopelessly inaccurate but also proposed as a factual document rather than fictional and needlessly scared an awful lot of people?

Anyway here's one to put a spanner in the works.
Shooting tyres with a handgun, apparently it doesn't work.
My eldest did a course when he was with the MoD so this is horses mouth stuff not some second hand thing I overheard down the pub. Thing is no matter how hard you try a fully inflated car tyre cannot be punctured by even a heavy calibre, long cartridge, magnum round, they just bounce off, indeed you are more likely to do yourself or other onlookers more serious harm than the tyre.
I'm not suggesting that the tyres internal structure will not be severely compromised but the idea that a Wiley cop can reduce a Firestone to shreds with his trusty 38 is pure fantasy.
