everyone know there's no such thing as a Sanity Clause
My thought was "Neverwhere" straight away. Had to check to see if Gaiman wrote the episode. Ashildr did a very passable impression of Door.
I was really surprised to find that it wasn't Torchwood behind the whole thing. Aliens hidden in London? Advanced tech? RetCon? Had TW written all over it. And remember, the Doctor did tell Ashildr about Captain Jack.
The photo seems to show an M3 rather than an M4
No- it's the opposite: Something that you've paid for should be available to you.
In Ireland, I pay a TV license and have to watch adverts on the channels I paid a license for- I'd happily give that money to the BBC- especially as I only watch the local stations for the US series that they show before the UK does (Homeland for example)
I think I'll wait for Guitar Hero Live- the song list is longer (and much better)
I'm trying to get that expanded to the Supreme Court Representatives Of The United States
If I was then, I'd get the helvetica...
THE WOLVES ARE WALKING ON WATER?!?!?!?!
...co-written with Spike Milligan if I remember.
Surely if Viewer Fatigue was a thing, Eastenders and Coronation Street would have disappeared years ago.
"Oh you fucked a companies share price up, closed half of it down and sacked a lot of the staff! That makes you highly employable at board level."
As long as you are still sending out huge dividends to the major shareholders, they don't really care what you did to the company. The ability to syphon out cash to the wealthy is all that matters to them.
My father worked at Bletchley Park during the 50s/60s- something he only told me about last year. It seems absolutely everyone involved had to sign the Official Secrets Act.
Recent pictures of Capaldi seem to show him suffering from some form of conjunctivitis. So maybe the sunglasses were written in because of this.
My response as well. Also I point out to them that they probably found me not the first search page too, negating their claim that my sites are not highly visible on search engines...
So the S is 'Snake' and the O is 'Oil'. What does the E stand for?
It will be great to see the stage from a decent angle- The seats I got from TicketBastard for the tour, were so oblique to the stage I go see into the wings and Rog and co waiting to come on. And these were "premium" seats according to TB.
sums up in one line what life has become in the 21st century. Brilliant.
Even during the 70s and 80s when the IRA carried out deadly campaigns in the UK and Ireland, there was no where near the paranoia or stupidity that there is today.
and most of America apparently
Is there a voice alert going "You have 5 minutes to reach minimal safe distance..."
To me, McCoy was always the clown from Vision On...
We used to call her 'Arse'
The only virus I wrote was only designed to annoy a friend. And set to die after a particular timescale.
When a patent is granted the company has to produce and sell products that utilise the patent, after a 2 year period after manufacturing has stopped, they loose rights to the patent, and it becomes free for all to use.
but what happens if that company then tightens rights to the patent? Does it then revert back to them?
You used the word "kill" and cited a US government department. You are now on an NSA watchlist (as am I probably).
I don't think there are many schoolchildren using Ashley Madison to cheat on their partners...
I thought the staff all skated around the warehouses while listening to the Lovin' Spoonful and drinking shite iced coffees...
It means "stupid people should not be in management positions"...
That would be Starlord's Strontium Dog
There is a maximum weight that an unlicensed drone can be- 55lbs is way too heavy.
It's better than getting the situation where accountants decide is cheaper to pay for the deaths than it is to cover the recall/repair costs (allegedly this happened with a particular brand of aircraft)
The best way to listen to Neil is live- I'm not a big fan but the wife is and she dragged me along to a couple of concerts and they were fantastic (for purists, it was at the same venue, three times)
Poor people pay more tax
More employees means more tax
That means that all the buildings of interest (the historical ones) would probably be okay as it would only cover the new stuff that there's little interest in. But if there is modern stuff of interest (say The Shard) I could see Google making arrangements with the architect.
...that this is going to be how Humans turns out too
The problem is, unless you start making senior execs culpable to the illegal actions of the companies they serve, then you risk creating an marketplace where other companies will flaunt laws based purely on the fact that none of their employees will be held accountable.
And I don't agree with arresting random Airbus employees, but I do agree with arresting Airbus top execs.
I thought Uber were going in to lecture the French authorities on their (the French legal system's) "misunderstandings"
something similar happened in Ireland- the taxi drivers were allowed to resell their licenses which mean't that these licenses commanded €100,000s to acquire. And then the Irish government deregulated the whole industry...
I thought all the GNSS systems adopted the GPS approach- they ignore the leap seconds so they are currently adrift by 24 seconds.
agreed- the Android Studio experience is 100 times better than Eclipse, even when it was in pre-beta (or is it post-alpha?)
...and stale beer; which is the last thing you'd want a pub to smell of (not that your examples are welcome either)
One of the worst calls I'd get when I used to do technical support for Psion's kit was usually from someone who had been storing all their "valuable data" in the internal RAM- which required power. They'd inevitably let the battery run down or fail to swap the battery within the 30 second time frame and puff went all their data. And I'd get a phone call demanding that I restore their "valuable data". I eventually developed a copying strategy which went something like:
Me: "Don't worry, we can easily get that back. What I need you to do is get your last backup..."
Customer: "But I've never done a backup."
Me: "I thought you said your data was valuable."
...a "terrorist" atrocity is being contrived by an intelligence organisation. It will be blamed on Edward Snowden...
Christopher Lee is facing off Death in a heavy metal showdown...
"Heroic Swordfish Rids Harbour Of Bully"
Would a jet be allowed to pass that close to a prop aircraft?
"Ah! That well of infinite melancholy that would engulf and smother even the perky optimism of a teenage boy."
So that wasn't only me then...
I did the same to my Super 8 projector- I could never get it back to normal again.
