US insurer punts 'bestiality' to wide-eyed kiddies, gasp 'mums'

Double Standards!

So one million mothers are all up in arms with the prospect that the pig might pork the young lady but they're absolutely fine with him owning his own car and driving it. When it comes down to it the pigs intentions were, if a little naive, nothing but honorable. He's driven her up there for a romantic night in his classic VW cabriolet to do nothing more than look at the stars. We could probably conclude that he has a pretty good job to own such a car and is an upright pillar of the community. It's no wonder the young lady was seeking some corkscrew action, our truffle finding protagonist is obviously quite a catch in todays society. One million mothers need to realise that america needs more VW owning, nice guy pigs, they should be celebrated not condemed for they are the future!

Re: Contracts

In English law at least to form a contract you need an "offer", an "acceptance" and "consideration". Offer and acceptance are what you would expect them to be though acceptance has to be unconditional. Consideration is an item of value to which the other party is not already entitled. Paying the money is what sets your agreement to the terms not scribbling your name anywhere. What's really interesting is that with most software you're agreeing to the EULA (by purchasing) before you have had the opportunity to see the terms, but that's another argument all together...

Verbal contracts (which are not written down anywhere) are common (ever bought bananas off a market stall and not gotten a receipt?) and can be enforced where it is possible to prove a contract exists by other means. It is however difficult to make specific terms stick when they are not written down anywhere.

UK Home Secretary approves TVShack's O'Dwyer extradition

Re: The priime minister should hang his head in shame

Online petitions are a waste of time. MPs have already proven that here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15283837

Write to your MP: http://www.writetothem.com/ tell them why this is wrong and why you want something done about it. Tell all your family and friends to write to their MPs too. Keep writing to them. Make it clear we're not going to go away until they revoke this treaty. It's the only way we're going to get any movement on this.

Greenland 'lurched upward' in 2010 as 100bn tons of ice melted

Better Solution

(1). Sack all climatologists or any group involved in predicting "climate change" or similar.

(2). Use funds saved buy not having to employ persons described in (1) to build a 10m sea wall around the entire coastline thus effectively defending the country from the effects of "climate change" come what may.

(3). ????

(4). Profit!!!!

Apple turns the flamethrower on Android

Jobs Horns

Not meaning to be pedantic...

...but don't you mean Mr Benz who is largely credited with the motorcar/automobile. Mr Ford just "made it better". To use your analogy though by the same merit as apple shouldn't every manufacturer that uses a production line be licensing the idea from Ford?

Apple should realise that in an industry where technology is very similar / overlaps a bum fight over who came up with it first will just give a few lawyers a wedge of cash and moderately piss consumers off. seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face to me.

Self Preservation Society?

Re: Dark Ian: I'm curious as to what you would suggest is the best route from Coventry to Manchester if not the M6. The M6 TOLL is good for relief from traffic but the route is over 5 miles longer than the regular M6 and will probably cost the poor bugger towing your car £10 in real money so is only really worth considering if your travelling at rush hour.

I'm amazed by the number of people who can judge a persons character by what make of car they drive. Next we'll be locking people up based upon their skin colour or religeous beliefs...

UK launches major road signage review

Openminded Cynic

How about...

... putting a speed limit sign on the back of or on the same post as speed cameras? Would that not help prevent the oohfuckbugger what's the speed limit breaking maneuver just prior to the cameras?

Also how about instead of those patronising "Spray Slow Down" electronic signs why not say "Spray: Use Headlights" or "Fog: Use Fog Lights" as some drivers tend to need someone else to make the big decisions such as to when to use which lights for them?

Or they could just make them show jubs all the time?

"However, we have been a little barren in the toilet tissue department since the PFY complained to the buildings maintenance manager about the toilet fresheners in the bottom of the urinal, saying he preferred the menthol to the eucalyptus flavour..."

Surely toilet fresheners have a scent rather than a flavour? Unless the PFY has a perchant for licking them?

AVG fake traffic spares Google AdWords

Openminded Cynic
Go

Just a thought...

Wouldn't the best way to implement this system be to use a whitelist system of websites that were scanned regularly to ensure they've not been infected, say once a day at a set time.

These sites would then not be scanned by the scanning tech everytime someone visits them. Then the scanning system need only be employed for sites not included on the whitelist like when checking out obscure Japanese porn sites.

This way AVG users get the same level of protection and webmasters don't get bandwidth-raped.

The only catch is AVG will need to fund the system for scanning the whitelist sites.

Just a thought...

@ BMI

BMI is actually an increadibly good way of telling how fat someone is as it is a measure of what percentage of a person's body mass is fat. The methods used for calculating this figure are often shite and inaccurate i.e the height by weight method (only really intended to give a ball park figure for normally proportioned people). A more accurate method for measuring BMI would be using an Immersion Tank or Body Fat Calipers.

Body builders will all have a BMI < 10% or they're not body builders regardless of their weight.

Personally I think if I pay for a seat on a plane I should get the use of all the seat not just the parts the fat bastard sat next to me isn't spilling over into if this means he has to buy 2 seats so be it.
