Say it aint so
French electropop titan Jean-Michel Jarre - a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador - will also be lending his talents as the race's "artistic director".
Please god no. Anything but him.
Dont encourage them.
Don't encourage them. They will be wanting to put on a weekend festival of Vogon poetry readings next.
I think Frank Zappa write a song called 'Bobby Brown' which contained the immortal line 'I can take about an hour on the tower of power.
saturday night fever?
So what's with the 70's retro dance move poses?
Urgh. Early contender for most pointless rebrand of the year, especially if they redo all their shopfronts and instore promo stuff . Its not as if its hard to spot their store on a high street or in an airport or wherever, its the one with books in the windows.
The entire system could be carried by a team of several elephants, but even a great white shark would struggle with it.
Perhaps some kind of ill-tempered, mutated albino whale might be in order. ®
Sorted, Gordon Brown will be available soon.
Score one against the fuckwits for a change
Unlike the Skippys, one thing the French wont do is try to ban small breasted women from the Internet.
I see they bottled it on the Stones 'Sympathy For The Devil' then.
Please stop all these horrible explicit posts, please. Wont someone think the effect they might have on poor Skippy.
I've got a leather bound copy of a dictionary from 1749 and it's quite fun to see what words that lists, eg.
"DIL'DO [contracted from the Italian diletto, q.d. a Woman's Delight, or of our Word Dally q.d. a Thing to play withal] Penis Succadaneous, called in Lombardy, Passatempo."
Hours of amusement :-)
Hours of amusement? What, reading the dictionary or er fnarr, fnarr.
Not from me.......yet
They arent getting £64 from me yet. I they ever con the public into compulsory registration for parents who pour the milk onto the rugrats weetabix and change his nappies for him then yes, but until then no.
Bono would express an opinion on my granny's piles if he could get media exposure out of it.
'One Reg hack thought he saw a pair of two wheel ploddies patrolling Dublin airport last year, but he was very very hungover at the time'.
Bladdered or not, yer man was right. The Gardai have indeed been using Segways at Dublin airport recently. They do look like feckin eejits mind.
Better news is that organisers aren't going to spend a fortune trying to stop spectators taking snaps of the games.
Pity, the subsequent mass riots in the staium would have probably been more watchable than a lot of the events.
I guess whoever dreamt this up closes their eyes every time they walk past one of those newsstands that are eveywhere in Spain. Thats the only way they won't see the eye watering range and variety of porn mags on display.
Maybe the goat turned down ITV because its hoping to get the Woss slot thats up for grabs over on the BBC.
the aircraft bearing the explosives "was on the runway when the error emerged but the pilot decided it was safe to fly". ®
Who was it? Semtex Airlines?
great sayings of our time
Bertolusconi saying 'Love always triumphs over envy and hate' is up there with Margaret Thatchers
notorious 'Where there is discord, may we bring harmony.' For sure.
Silent Night by the Dickies. No namby pamby warbling there.
Nasty site. Looking at my home town, the address of someone listed on the site as a 'pervert' can be narrowed down to a short sidestreet with maybe 8-10 houses in it. Not too hard for some knuckle dragging vigilante/s to narrow it down from there.
Also like others I spotted a couple of 'terrorists' who were acquitted or who are still awaiting trial.
And the court imposed stiff penalties on the nefarious pill peddlers as well................
maybe my mistake
Maybe it's partly my fault .As an occasional participant in inebriated Saturday night crop circle activities around Wessex in my youth, it now looks like we did actually get in touch with aliens from another world.
God knows what drunken abusive messages we might have unknowingly sent. I just hope it wasnt the kind that result in a raging alien anger and instant planetary oblivion for earthlings.
"He concluded by saying that the US "remains committed" to working with Baku on democratic reforms"
As in they have lots of oil so lets not piss them off too much.
So what's the difference between a phantom hooker and a real one, and which gives more bang for the buck?
I think we should be told.
Leo Sayer on the other side of the planet? There is a God after all.
@Re: standard measure?
Oh so cruel. Why not just call me Johnny Fartpants and be done with it
"normal human farts"
So is there a universal standard fart measurement now?
If the US government says no to the porn industry, will it then go tits up?
@Now for some more completly uneducated responses (just like all those above)
The Cornish huh? No problem, blow all the bridges over the Tamar and ban the sale of pasties. Sorted.
Anonymous cowards day?
Is this international anonymous cowards day or somesuch? The place is infested with them.
Not Nulab for once
Actually for once this lunacy isnt down to NuLab, Lewes is Liberal Democrat council.
I'm up for it so long as they still serve chilled Chrunchie Bars like they did on the Gatwick-Antigua flights.
'Short and Sweet . . . For NOW!! I WILL be back!!'
Lemon Incest? Well the French for you, dissolute cheese eating fornication monkeys. Brits prefer their heroes clean limbed and clean living, Keith Richards springs to mind.
Although there are serious problems with current & proposed future land AFV's in respect of their effectiveness, one thing that aircraft and helos are terminally useless at is the taking and holding of ground areas.
If the UK wants to have a military strategy involves the taking and holding of ground or defending it does actually need people & kit to do that. If it doesnt, no problem, but that decision may bite back.
Just as well
Just as well he didnt start twittering in the wreckage. Electronic devices and aviation fuel do not always go well together.
No worries, Aussies wanting to escape this nonsense can always move to a more civilized country like New Zealand.......
added 'dogsex' to 'farmsex,'
This is terrible, won't people please think of the poor puppies and piglets.
What is sex?
This is what you get for messing around trying to use high tech solutions. All major Political elections should be decided Butch Cassidy style by a knife fight and/or a kick in the balls.
"Uncommanded rollback". Why can't they just say an engine stopped working?
Jacqui promotes police handhelds
They already have them handheld thingies, truncheons, tasers, pepper sprays etc. Why do they need more?
This is doable
This is quite easy to do, all they need to do is modify the 'Twat-O-Tron' software.
As the saying goes
Can I be the first to say that you can't make an omletle without breaking eggs.
Old hippie says
It's too much hassle to read this & I can't get my head together about this stuff because it is a real bringdown and it freaks me out because there is a lot of bad karma in there man. The way straight people talk is just so uncool.
Points of order
Given the content of the article, the writerr should have used bullet points........OK, I'll get me coat.
Looks like the 'Auroura' project revisited. For sure and there all sorts of exciting high tech possibilities for getting the supertroopers into someplace coventional transports & helos cant reach, but you still have to get them out, probably with angry locals running around waving portable SAM's all over the place. How is this thing supposed to do that?
Given the amount of online shagging that seems to go on in Second Life, the concept of an embedded reporter is entirely appropriate.
@linking to the list
Urgh.....half the world and their dogs already knew where to find copies of the list.
