In the video, the exoskeleton seems to be playing music constantly. I think that would P*ss me off after a while.
Also, my mates watch cost 200 pounds and I'm pretty sure I could carry that unaided.
I suggest Jordan as the bimbo with 3 baps and Jo Brand as a mutant. I also quite like the idea of Tom Cruise playing that robotic cabbie and Woody Allen as Quade.
Is it Friday again already?
@ Derivation of "Bubba"
Thanks for the explanation Mark. The sarcasm was a bit unnecessary though.
Am I the only one who doesn't understand the Bubba reference?
I'm too scared to look it up at work in case the search brings up 'undesirable' web pages.
I come for the smugness, but stay for the waffle.
I don't buy a lot of music these days because 99% of it is total sh*t.
Poxy girls bands, poxy boy bands, talentless bimbo's who look good but can't sing, lyrics predictably about sex or how much money the 'artist' (Ha!) has got or how many f*cking car's they own and what dumb wheels they've put on it, and then to cap it all they go making up words because they're limited vocabulary prevents them from using real words to form a rhyme.
It's all b*ll*cks.
How the hell do you turn off the Twat-o-tron once its engaged?
@ Am I the only PS3 owner
No, you're not.
Home looked interesting at first (all those years ago...) but the delays have given me time to realise that it has nothing to offer... like FaceBook.
I like FPS's though.
I also like Marmite.
Isn't that what Phorm delivers?
Nice looking Bike, but why does the outfit in the background of the second picture look like its been kicked in the beanbag?
Are there any boxes left to tick in the 'create your own Nazi state' handbook'?
The judge sounds pissed off. Bet she's one of the many people who were forced to go back to XP.
Picking just one out of that list was seriously difficult.
I would've preferred to give a mark out of ten for each.
Anyway, it's pub time....
Surely the best way to stop piracy is to introduce them to health and safety.
I for one would be interested in reading their risk assessment and I'm pretty sure that the news footage showed no sign of high-visibility clothing.
This is becoming a bit too predictable. Accused of dodgy behaviour? Play the GTA card.
But does it actually benefit the accused?
@ David Mery
Thanks for clearing that up.
I'm pretty sure that although they take your whole DNA sequence, when it comes to checking for criminal activity they only look at certain markers, not the whole sequence. If that's correct, then your chances of being wrongly accused of a crime are a lot higher than is generally thought and a nightmare to prove your innocence.
I seem to remember reading about a guy who was accused of rape after his DNA was matched to that which was found on the victim. Problem was he was white and even though the victim repeatedly told the police the attacker was black, the police wouldn't back down because as far as they were concerned, the DNA evidence was beyond doubt.
Although the guy was eventually found to be innocent, his life had been ruined by this but it's ok because he had nothing to hide or fear.
What next? A freezer with a Carbonite and Hoth settings?
Yes that's a crap joke but I don't care because its gone 12 and I'm leaving work...
Chris Mole - A sad little politician desperately trying to raise his profile.
what's the prob?
The fat monkey seemed to be having a good time, and so did the chimp.
'.....will accelerate SSD random write speeds by a factor of 100'.
100x faster than what? Their current SSDs (which are pretty slow to start with)? The intel X-25M? An Mtron Pro?
I still want one anyway.
for me, it was the cost
The last game I bought on the PC was STALKER, and it was great, but then my motherboard packed up and due to my system being a bit old I thought I'd build a new one.
The graphics card alone would've about 300 quid so I bought a PS3 instead (please don't attack me xbox fanboys).
With regards to someone's comments regarding FPS's with a joypad being a bit crap, I'll admit that the first month was a nightmare, but after a while I got used to it.
'…..designed to help reduce the number of pupils carrying heavy book bags around…'
Oh boo-hoo! Poor little kiddies!
I thought we were supposed to be lowering the rate of child hood obesity? I say make them carry stone tablets around with them.
People voted for Obama because they think they're going to get something like that guy on 24.
At the end of the day though, all politicians are lying b*stards.
That being said, I probably would've voted for Obama but one chrome turd is the same as another.
I personally don't like Jo Brand. I find her offensive to look at and listen too. I can't wait for the day she does something to offend the general public so I can use it as an excuse to complain and hopefully get her off TV.
Its a shame we can't get rid of politicians so easily.
Oh no, I meant to type 'allowed', not 'aloud'.
Paris: Because she wouldn't know the difference.
CoD 8 - An Unpleasant Scuffle
I suppose the next Call of Duty will have weapons such as the dreaded pea-shooter or a balloon on a stick. Get 8 Chinese burns in a row and you can activate a super weapon whereby everyone has to sit down for a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast.
Are you still aloud to use the term 'Chinese burn' or is it deemed to be racist?
I can't keep up with all this politically correct BS.
Ha! Good one!
Didn't have time for lunch today, so technically that's worse than having a Twix, I think.
I intend to make up for it tomorrow though.
I finish at midday on Friday so I'm going to a nice quiet pub for steak and chips and a beverage or two.
Your lunch sounds yummy.
I think I'll stick with the bottled water though. Working in London means there's a good chance the tap water has passed through several politicians already.
That thought alone is enough to bring my Twix up.
Where's the 'I had a crap lunch and metioned it in the comments section of the Register' icon?
Twix for lunch = reduced brain power
TWAT = The War Against Terror
I should've got that.
I need a holiday.
@AC - TWAT in title
I don't know. Maybe its something to do with the tampon reference but I too would ilke clarification.
I'd just like to say that my lunch today consists of a Twix and a bottle of water. This is a new low for me.
What phone was it?
It'd have to be bloody good for me to rummage round the u-band of my own bog, let alone a public khazi.
Actually, thinking about it, I haven't got a copy of my phones address book so I'd probably have to.
I played Bioshock on the PC when it first came out, it was ok, pretty good in some places but I personally thought it was a bit overated. Once completed, I never felt the urge to play it again. (I never had a problem with bugs or crashes though)
Downloaded and completed the PS3 demo, can't say I'll be playing it again.
Played Far Cry 2 over the weekend, now THAT kicked ass.
I haven't seen this many anonymous posts since the 'Church of Scientology' stories.
@bluesxman - You're funny :-)
@AC @Just me, or has Britain lost it?
'I suspect he would, if he could get away with it, have us all chipped like dogs and cats so that some secrete police with an RF scanner would be able to locate us at the push of a button.'
Sounds ridiculous now, but I'm sure that's where we're heading.
I worked in Muswell Hill telephone exchange on a couple of occasions.
There used to be a bloke who worked there who loved his radio and if you turned it down/off or changed the channel, he'd go completely bananas.
He was actually a nice guy, just as long as you didn't touch is radio...
40Mb seems slow, and as Stuart has already asked, what's the upload speed going to be?
Anyway, its all irrelevant to me. If I'm forced to go through Phorm equipment, BT can f**k right off.
Why would the Japanese pay to have a go on an earthquake simulator? I mean, surely they experience the real thing often enough don't they?
Its a bit like living in Deptford, and then paying to have a go on a sh*t hole simulator, or the Gordon Brown simulator that keeps taking your money but gives nothing in return.
überdatabase 'wouldn't spot terrorists'...
It would if we all paid more tax. More tax = problem solved.
Well that's what I've been led to believe anyway...
I just got back from the West End. If I'd read this earlier I would've gone an had a look.
Its bloody busy up there today.
just a thought...
Can't the woman who over slept in the car park do what BT did and play the 'no criminal intent' card?
missed rant opportunity
I can't even begin to imagine what that guy would've thought if Amanfrommars had commented.
Up until a couple of years ago I worked in telephone exchanges all over the country.
This kind of theft was quite common. I knew people who were frequently called out to see why an ISP had lost all its connections, only to find the equipment had been pinched.
We were also advised to keep an eye out for suspicious characters when working nights.
I can't think of anything else to add.
How about a 'Chrome Turd' icon?
spotted 10 minutes ago...
...driving down Chingford Avenue (London E4).
That's twice the bloody thing has got me.
Holy crap! Ghostbusters is 25 years old! That's made me realise what an old git I'm becoming.
I'd usually go down the pub at this point to drown my sorrows but I think I'd better get down to Boots instead to pick up some Sanatogens and Worthers Originals.
Streuth Jim, Your post has given me a headache.
practical modern art
If anyone here happens to own a flatbed truck, you could be the envy of your mates by being the first to install a bovine compass.
Simply plonk the cow on a giant turntable and house the cowpass in a glass enclosure, perhaps a small greenhouse.
