Hate to ask
What exactly is the point of knowing if a civilisation collapsing or even mass extinction meteor is heading our way, if we have absolutely no way of diverting it.
The only situation where this project will earn its pay, will be one where currency, government funding comities etc. are going to quickly become irrelevant.
Best to just go back to watching idiots stick fireworks in themselves on YouTube.
Cock of the poppiest variety
Grey goo is nonsense! My dad once showed an MP around his lab. After the tour the guy turns to him and says "Remind me, what is an atom again?". Bloody classical studying pillocks!
Spleen vented... get back to work.
You intrigue me. I would like to know more about this Boob Aerobics.
Do you per chance have any example video footage of this activity? I feel it would deserve close examination.
2 percent increase?
Can't you see we need addictive substances to numb the pain?
That's nothing. My old uni spent years on research to work out why men get sleepier after sex than women. In the end they concluded that it was because they use more energy and get tired.
B. Obvious et al.
Clearly you're not a beer drinker. That's your IT angle right there.
Yes. Acceptable? No.
I know this is an over simplification but...
Why didn't she just impregnate herself? OK, not with her brother's juice, for down that road oversized foreheads and webbed toes lie, but she could have just gone to a clinic.
There sure are some crazy people from Lesbos.
It's going to be like living the 70s
Except we don't have as good music
If I want to buy a bottle of Sainsbury's finest Bulgarian Merlot to quaff of a weekend, I don't want to be spending more than £4. So bugger off and let me be.
Also, how can taxes be used to apply a minimum? Could they apply a sliding tax scale, depending on the current cost of a product? Or would they just apply an additional fixed amount to the existing price? If so, spirits would cost the earth.
One continent of furries, flying penises etc. and anyone who actually enjoys second life.
The old continent for the hundred or so misguided, overenthusiastic academics who want to be down with the kids and give their lectures using these cool new web 2.0 thingys (while actually sitting comfortably in their office drinking tea).
"viewing pornographic content alone will increase the chances of being sexually aroused by the material"
I would think that was the point.
I can't help but be reminded of the funniest joke in the world, from Monty Python.
In order to weaponise it for use against the Germans, each translator could only work on one word each. One guy saw two words and was hospitalised.
By making the poor censors watch the whole thing alone, they could be seriously hurt.
I'm sure I'm not the only person who posted a comment in your last article on the launch, saying that this had happened, which haven't shown up in said article. Admit it, you were on your lunch break and didn't want to look stupid.
This would probably work quite well for mobilising reinforcements to friendly, possibly besieged airfields quickly, rather than doing some kind of 'hot-drop' (this is all getting very sci-fi).
My initial reaction would be "stuff um!", but are they actually obliged to pay it back? They're not under contact any more.
If having to remain naked and live underground is the price we must pay to look fabulous, so be it!
"[...]using Facebook to lend credibility to [anything at all]"?
I think not
As they said, that's the real reason the ASA pulled it. You're not allowed to advertise prescription drugs in this country. I'm pretty sure there are other restrictions on drug advertisements anyway, as we just don't see the pharma TV adverts you get in the US.
How I learned to stop panicking about nuclear submarine accidents...
And love the bomb.
Oh sure, the LHC may help physicist gain a greater understanding of this magnificent and massively complex system, we call the universe. Sure they may even discover some answers to the fundamental questions; when? where? how? (and possibly even) why? Sure, such deep curiosity is probably the greatest thing we humans can claim as truly _ours_; extension of natural mammal inquisitiveness it may be, we've managed to make it an art. But...
Will it help me pay for my fuel bills, rent, grumble-mag subscription fees, pop-tarts etc?
Sigh... time to get back to work, huddled over my desk, bashing the keys with my palms. Look how far we've come.
Sorry, James May has already shown us the future of the car. It looks exactly like a normal car, performs like a normal car, costs about the same as a normal car, fills up like a normal car (albeit with hydrogen), and is made by Honda. It's going to be the next best thing, because it's just as good as the old best thing. Nuff said.
Possibly. Cheeky sods!
Still, I'd probably opt for a clean install anyway, since I'll be starting with a clean slate. Not really a good option for those managing a large network, having adopted a "We don't need no stinkin' Vista" attitude though.
Alas, this is not the case, even though I personally agree with much of your sentiments. You see, shops, bars, clubs etc. have every right to refuse you service for anything that isn't a directly covered by discrimination laws e.g. no buying booze here, you're black, no drinking here, you're a woman, no dancing here, you're gay etc. are all a no-no, but applying your own age restrictions is A-OK.
"Super heated" water i.e. gaseous.
Also, the boiling point, melting point, triple point etc. of any substance, including water, is effected by conditions such as pressure. In a high pressure environment the boiling point of water will be higher. If the planet has a dense enough atmosphere (unlikely considering this as a small rocky one and not a big gassy one), the water may be held at very high temperatures without vaporising.
...and so ends the lesson.

No, but they are simulated.
