"Contemporary" for Radio 3 means 1957, doesn't it?
...there's already been a "specialist" film called The Girl With The Pearl Necklace.
Mine's the one with the... actually, you don't want to know.
is a Van Alien belt?
Two dimensions of The Phantom Menace was plenty bad enough, thanks.
Not her scariest tweet yesterday
I direct your attention to "In the studio working on music. :)". Yikes!
I still don't see any fashion reporting, old or otherwise. Get it together!
Nikon F series
I've got an old Nikon F2 - it's weighty enough to bring down an elephant in the right hands!
Wasn't he in Patriot Games?
And to think...
the arms trade normally gets such a bad press.
I may be stupid, but...
surely getting a private facial is less shocking than getting out of cars with no knickers on?
Not guilty of armed robbery perhaps...
But he should be arrested for crimes against grammar.
Not their fault
Perhaps they saw "NSFW", didn't read it properly, and thought it related to them.
That's un oeuf egg puns
That is all.
...and no Jesus Phone gags?
Worms can't limp. They haven't got any legs.
Are you sure it's not combovers?
It looks like something out of The Jetsons.
Surely he could have used custard creams.
Who the hell can't spell guarantee?
Broccoli, now that's a tricky one.
But am I reading Private Eye?
Perfectly acceptable grammar and spelling, no exclamation marks (never mind multiple exclamation marks), no swearing worthy of the name, and only one word capitalised. What does this amateur think he's doing?
How is DARPA not involved in this?
This is much better than some cartoon tits.
Not that I'm a pedant or anything, but...
...there are six LEDs in that Apple logo.
Perhaps they're not trying to trade on MUMPS' success
At least if this is accurate: http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/A_Case_of_the_MUMPS.aspx
Was it a proper barbecue?
Was she cremated on the outside but still frozen in the middle?
Imagine my disappointment
...when the one comment wasn't from the guy (I'm guessing) who posted the original foaming-mouth toss. Brilliant stuff though. The man is truly the voice of modern Britain, and I'm not just taking shit.
By the way, "the hoi polloi?" Tsk - surely everyone knows that "hoi" means "the"? well the fact you cant speek ainchent greek correct makes me want to take on board you advice, could you ell me what schools you went to so I never send my kids there
Great work DARPA...
How long must it have taken to come up with a name that produced the acronym SyNAPSE?
Quite. Anyone for a petition to get Sting, Alanis Morrisette and Garbage banned from the UK?
No need to correct their spelling...
Just knock marks off for it. If they haven't got the nous to find out what's wrong with their spelling then what the hell are they doing at university in the first place?
It obviously works - I've never seen an elephant hiding in custard.
For servers too?
Surely not everything can be on the cloud - something needs to be the cloud.
Only an American company could have come up with that.
There was no good outcome for this case
It was like Jonathan Aitken vs Mohammed Fayed - they should both have lost.
I give him $9000 and he spears my life anyway? Bargain.
Is it just me...
Or is that the least convincing Photoshop job ever?
I think it is disk in this case, isn't it? Like program/programme.
Just to drag us briefly back onto the article, it's good to see there's something Blighty excels at - nobody designs a caning trestle like us.
Re: Benny Hill
Thanks, El Reg. Now I've got the music to the Benny Hill Show (Boots Randolph, if I remember correctly) in my head for the rest of the day.
I see. So presumably the "extreme meausures" of bombing the shit out of a large part of the Middle East "employs" the extreme counter-measures of blowing people up everywhere else in the world. The fact that you apparently can't tell the difference between disabling a CCTV camera and (potentially) causing a helicopter to crash in an urban area makes me think that your spelling and grammar aren't the only indicators of your intellectual level.
We could just teach people to drive.
Shame they've already shut down
Royce Brisbane (great name, incidentally) might have answered a call apparently coming from his wife's mobile number.
So it's only half as intelligent as the average human?
Not a great deal to worry about there then.
Mind-reading hat, eh?
Does it tell them which house they're in, as well?
The new Navy sonar system won't be a threat to Dolphins either
Presumably it's been outsourced to someone crap and won't work anyway, or will work but not in the sea, or something.
I, for one, etc, etc.
I seem to be the first to say...
that I for one welcome our new self-replicating robot overlords.
To be fair...
playing that shite for so long would drive me mental too.
Pfenning Black? Presumably not. Pfennig Aryan, perhaps.
