"But I didn't lie on purpose"
The quote, from a discredited psychotherapist, on live television.
So why should anyone, ever, believe what he says?
The unmistakeable sound of.....
Each bike is equipped with a 500W amplifier & stereo speakers to replicate the pleasure provided by the superb 1960's 6-cylinder Honda 250.
So, what's all the fuss about?
1. Simple solution
"By Eponymous Cowherd Posted Monday 23rd March 2009 13:37 GMT
If you see a GoogleMobile coming down your street, run outside and get your todger out."
And if you're a woman?
2. Brill cartoon in Daily Telegraph that sums it all up - CCTV operator complaining Google had photographed their equipment.
3. Interesting that Google get away with photographing Coppers, whereas mere members of the public now can't.
4. All those stupid kill-joys who complain, presumably never look at a photograph in the press or television news report that has 'other' members of the public whose faces are not obscured.
One law for us, one law for them
"Don't do as I do, do as I say" Bl@@dy troughers.
What about Discrimination Act & Equal Opportunities.
Just the day after Barclays annouces it's sacking 400 IT Staff.
Is that "£12billion" a 'reasonable & realistic' estimate; or, an Olympic-type deliberate underestimate that will end up costing 4x as much - i.e. £1,000 per man woman & child of this already bankrupt nation?
Every 'farm' (i.e. bank of multiple turbines) I see, has at least 20% inoperative; sometimes up to 50% idle.
Drive along the A47 towards Gt Yarmouth and that farm on the coast to the north rarely has more than 50% operative - even on windy days.
What a waste of money.
IDs are a great idea.......
If they're so good, make it mandatory for every MP to have one. At their own cost. To "test-drive" the system for say 10 years before a general referendum asks the public for their opinion.
Jacqui should buy the first one. With her own money, and not on expenses.
Photograph of Jesus walking on water
Seems the ad campaign may be a waste of money.
Here's a photo of His son walking on water............
Don't just whinge - complain to Ofcom's PayMaster.........
Complain about Ofcom having nothing better to do:-
Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration
Tel: 0845 015 4033 (enquiry line)
Fax: 020 7217 4000
Yet another DataBase to lose
Ladbrokes have opened a Book, on when the 1st reported "Loss" will occur.
They've opened another one on when the 1st unreported "Loss" occured.
?Data Protection Act?
1. Shouldn't the Data Protection Act prevent disclosure of identity?
2. Nobody 'Forces' file-sharers to share files. Those that do so should expect to be clobbered.
3. Notice that the Legal eagles make 66% more than the game's Publisher.
From the sublime to the ridiculous
Go to Tesco, buy a bottle of Harpic & a bottle of Domestos.
Don't let anyone know that you've read their warnings not to mix the two.
Be sure to wear a gas-mask if you ignore the warnings.
That combination will kill more than just germs.
Employer's misleading references
But don't Employers already have the opportunity to desribe their opinion of a worker?
Fear of legal action causes the majority to provide 'neutral' comments, when in fact some employees may be real sh1ts.
[OK, OK, some employers can be real sh1ts too, but it's easier for a disgruntled employee to walk, than it is for a disgruntled employee to give a worker the shove.]
"NRB" is succint, truthful and honest.
The Power of the Internet
If they hadn't tried to ban it; you wouldn't have reported it; and, I & thousands others wouldn't have considered watching it.
Now that I have, I learn more about the Chinese atrocities towards the Tibetans.
Just for more profit for BAA
The reason fingerprinting is necessary is because BAA wants to save costs & increase revenuse by "mixing" passengers in a common retail area.
Force the buggers to build separate areas, then fingerprinting is unnecessary.
It's not all bad - there's One Good Point....
Seems that at every election & by-election Politicians revel in the photo-opportunity of picking up babies or having school kids sit on their lap.
Now, they'll get prosecuted for doing it without a CRB certificate, or, stop the sickening activity.
Either way, a Win-Win situation for Joe Public.
Idle Wind Turbines
Drive along the "Acle Straight" towards Gt Yarmouth on the A47.
To the north in view for much of the journey, is a clearly visible wind farm, with many turbines.
I don't drive on that road every day, but I've yet to see all turbines rotating simultaneously. Sometimes only about 50% rotate; sometimes fewer than 25%.
A disgraceful waste of capital equipment.
Mandatory CRB check for all adults in contact with children?
There are many instances of photographs published in the press & shown on TV of adults touching children they don't know & who are not related to them.
These adults are known as Politicians, and the events occur around Election Time.
Ministers frequently go into school classrooms for Photo Opportunities.
Presumably they've all had their CRB check? If not, why not?
Actual rate vs advertised price
Is it really beyond the whit of OFCOM to insist that ISPs proportion their charge to their delivered speed?
Advertising......"Up to 8MBps for £10 pcm"
If punter gets only 4MBps average, he pays only £5pcm!
The MOD can't afford any more bullets, so all soldiers in Afghanistan are being issued with those T-shirts to scare the Taliban sh1tless.
Hidden usage tracking? @ Steven Raith
"...............I don't care about data pharming [arf], provided I have the option to, quite clearly and expressly, opt out of it."
A scary logic.
Much safer, is for a user to have to positively 'opt in'.
Has to run on OSX; EULA forbids use on Windows or Linux!!
[Don't know what the penalty for contravention will be though. Any suggestions?]
B G vs Accenture
Remember B G (& its pre-privatisation predecessors) have been sending bills to customers for 60 years. They know what they want & what they expect.
At one time BG had the largest non-governmental database in Europe. It worked, & it worked well.
My money's on the benevolent ex-Monopoly.
Judgement on Extreme Porn
If porn is that which is likely to "Deprave & Corrupt".......
And a Judge looks at the evidence..........
By definition, s/he's been depraved & corrupted.
But is a depraved & corrupted person fit to be a (fair) Judge?
Catch 69 anyone?
What's an "Impacted" customer?
Definition(s) of "Impacted"
Wedged together at the broken ends. Used of a fractured bone.
Placed in the alveolus in a manner prohibiting eruption into a normal position. Used of a tooth.
Wedged or packed in, so as to fill or block an organ or a passage: impacted feces.
What's wrong with the correct "Affected"?
Whats the point (no pun intended) of having a faster iMac when it takes forever to scroll the Humble/Mighty Mouse Pointer from one side of their screen to the other?
Even as its fastest, you physically have to move their Mouse about 4" / 100mm.
So much for Apple Ergonomics.
Secretgeek - the collective noun for a group of paid-for-lovelies?
Secretgeek asks if anyone knows the collective noun for a group of paid-for-lovelies?
Until now there probably hasn't been one.
I'll start the ball rolling, with.... A "Mosley" of Mistresses.
