Look at the live map. They all sail round the equator why not just sail the long way round?!?!?!
Paris because she knows what its like to be boarded by a load of seamen!
@ All those who are asking about the needle.....
Go look it up on wikipedia :-)
Couldnt give a rats arse what people think about the US spelling!
Letz b onst ere we av spwnd sum kinda chav spk here innit!
I would rather read yank (err no offence guys i am a big fan of the US and actually might get the oppurtunity to visit on a holiday (or vacation as you know it ;-) ) next year if i am lucky!) than that kind of dribble! For now i will raise a beer to the reg another year and another good excuse to be surfing the net from work. This is one of the few sites i can sit on all day having it open and not get whinged at! My boss even emailed round a link or after i forwarded them on!
I would like to oppurtunity to win more from you guys and dont tell me you have nothing, the freebies you guys must recieve even if they are crap...pens, notepads etc must be worth chucking out on a survey win!
Thanks for that. The current cost of El Reg to the global economy is £73656.25 after 4463 votes
73656.25/4463= £16.50(i rounded down) Per reghead! Thats enough for a few beers and a bag of nuts each down the nuclear should reg decide to share its new found wealth with its loyal fan base ;)
...your Wiki are belong to us!!
on a side note didnt Jasper Carrot do a sketch about his mate who used the word "Wiki" to bullshit his way around China?
The thought that counts i guess!
That said its a kind gesture from the folks at Apple. Why must eveyone be so cynical about it? I mean they could have just done nothing and ignored it. They made a gesture that shows that they are in part human. People who are saying "its not going to make up for loosing there house" or "Yeah life would just not be worth living without those JobsPod. And we wonder whats going wrong with the world when these are the values we are positively encouraging."
You are all clearly missing the piont! That or you expected Jobs to front up 100 houses! They arent using it as some mass ad campaing, they arent poking there nose in they did a kind gesture for a bunch of kids who must be feeling pretty down! Yeah you have no house and life is a bit sh*t at least someone has done something kind for them!
How irresponsible and reckless of the guy! Surely the kid isnt at fault here. I mean he is still a minor and cannot be truely held resposible here as he was drunk. no doubt because of the father therefor the kids judgement will have been impared surely? What a disgrace!
Just thanks Jebus no one was hurt!
Poor lad :(
The police fiddle evidence?!?!?! never......... they c0cked up and got the wrong guy so they are trying to cover it up! Of course they will have fiddled it. Stupid people!
Also editing in Power Piont? Hmmmmmmmmm.........
George W has a whole panel of advisors to answers these questions for him in pretty pictures why does he need to ask these questions in public? lol. (For those not in UK this joke may go over your heads and for that i am sorry) (but then if you arent in the UK and watch Family Guy you still might get it :) )
Seriously though the kid does raise a good piont we are not at a piont in our technoclogy where we could effectively take on a rac who are capable of interstellar travel! The shielding requirements for such a voyage alone would mean that non of our conventional weapons would stand a chance. I hate to be the one to explain this too him that his government is probably most likely completely less than unprepared!
N.B all the above is theoretical of course i am not some nut who sits at home worrying about alien invaders wearing Tinfoil hats! But i am up for discussing this kind of thing after about 10 pints!
