Explorers have attempted to uncover the extreme wealth of "Ciudad Blanca", so called because its buildings and a wall around it were of white stone, since the time of Hernán Cortés and the Spanish conquistadors in 1520.
How can there be a city of "extreme wealth" (probably relative) somewhere in Honduras just like that? There needs to be a supporting civilization and vast tracts of land to support that city to the point where asking a local would most likely result in finger-pointing into the general direction of said city. What gives?
As an example, it's not like the location of Mesopotamian cities was particularly unknown (indeed Mongols amused themselves to "un-wealth" those cities something fierce, having evidently easily detected them).
The free Palin republic?
Detections were duly added to AV products and as a result, the generated PDF files became increasingly obfuscated as malware attempted to circumvent the scanners.
What an "industry". Managing to allow execution of data streams. Then kludging detectors on top of that to avoid SHTF situations. Only a world economic crash can cleanse us anymore. You could have stopped it!
I have said it before, I will say it again: OCCUPY BABEL!

Maybe easis will get rid of this problem. They must be good for something.
Incredibly a single WIPO panelist actually agreed with this creative interpretation of trademark law over the domain 'easytrain.com'.
Chalk it up to P.U.T.I.N.
He's offing stuff left and right now and probably is behind our perenially non-escape-velocitiing economy too. Remember David Kelly!
Both smart and stupid? Smupid!
The sheer amount of cosmic radiation would drown out any WiFi signal, it would even drown out a wired network connection at normal voltages
WTF? You seem to mistake space for the interior of a nuclear reactor mysteriously working in the radio-wave spectrum.
Looks like all these communication satellites are big conspiracy.
Any minimally acceptable spacestation has riveted joints, fat, snaking cabling on floor, ceiling and inside barely accessible ducts, flickering and/or inexistent interior lighting and people with slavic accents (possibly with US-style baseball caps and gaily colored mission patches).
We are getting to it. Slowly.
It is about a small jade figurine, curiously fashioned into a winged creature with a kraken head, and a bit squamous, yet ruguous to the touch.
Soon to be mass-produced.
The feel when that was nearly 20 years ago.

More like a passive-agressive version of R2D2.
BLEEP BLOOP F*CKETY F*CK!
No, hard-earned taxpayer dollars are being expended to fund the homeland security which just issued "OMG! Thermite on Planes! It's UNDETECTABLE" surpriso-research.
but 292 degrees below zero is just wrong when used in any technical field
You better chill out...
Presumably president Obama, using drones?
Why would Iran try to obtain tritium by dogdy means when they can very easily get a container of it (or even produce it themselves) by placing a phone call, being NPT signatories and all that?

More like, now comes with Komodo/Superfish and special Hezbollah detector.
Secret decisions about unspecified objectives to assert control? Obama administration standard operating procedure.
Well, there will be leaks soon.
I think there is some kind of problem these people are supposed to solve here? Can anyone recall what the problem is?

...then install Jack in the Box at the corner, just next to the illegal dumping ground.
It will just be another plastic bag leaving the premises.
It is amazing this kind of RNA exchange happens on systems several orders of magnitude simpler than actual biological systems.
Bodes well for the time when people will be able to buy genetic sequencers at Wal-Mart, promoted by (whatever will be the future version of) George Clooney.

Japanes file amicus curiae brief, also claims impromptu beheadings by katana are a national first.
Comodo provides trusted root for quite a few fish lower down the certificate chain, so there are Comodo certs in the standard "trusted root CA" packages.

These things are full of computers nowadays.
But there sure is a difference between "consumer-tier data processing clobbered together by 'engineers'" and "stuff properly developed by actual engineers".

I think even white house spokespersons (currently blondemonster Pzaki, I think) will affirm these do not, and never did, exist and any rumor to the contrary are terrorist inventions.
I think you might be interested into our new Scientofuntologic ReEmpowerator™ ISO9706 Agile© Prince2© TMMi PMI Capability CMMi Institute of the Insane Methodology, which will guarantee 100% success in all endeavors regarding upgrade proceduralics in spite of your team having no idea whatsoever about IT having been recycled from moribund industries℠.

Stop protecting McDonalds.
I you can't handle the heat, don't drink coffee at McDonald's.
if it did, there'd be nothing on the shelves and we'd all have six cars
The goal of advertising is not to increase the available wealth of the target, but but have him allocate wealth differently than it would have been done otherwise.
And seeing how people are in debt up to their eyesockets while still having three cars....
The Woman with the McDonald's coffee had third degree burns on her thighs and genitals
McDonalds now serves lava? Probably not in polystyrene cups.

Wrong, but seeing the levels of QUALITY, CARE and SKILLS-EXHIBITED of BIOS code in general, would you ever trust industrial waste of that kind?
“In memoriam: Hugo Chavez, the first leader of a movement that defeated the extreme centre”
Woah. The guy the who managed to actually wreck Venezuela's economy so much that it turned from a major coffee exporter to a rounding error on the exporters' charts and even toilet paper became an item of rarity? Yep, it's not the Yankee's fault. It's believing in your Marxian power of economic übercontrol.
I think we can skip this book.
“refuse to step down and talk to the people whose worlds they have destroyed.”
Is that so.
Any worst than by the NSA or any other foreign gov agency?
Actually I do think the ones wearing chutzpahs are indeed worse.
CEO Adi Pinhas told El Reg ... "Fortunately, our partnership with Lenovo was limited in scale..."
That's the first time I have heard "fortunately" combined with "limited in scale" from a provider of "PUPware".
Messages regarding US policy on the Ukraine, and other files, have been swiped from the system, two sources report.
There is a policy different from getting the current retardation of Ukrainians killed and ignoring Nazis in order to get Chevron some fracking rights and cause grief for Putin in order to realize the liberal/neocon pussy-wetting dream of "regime change" in Russia? I think we should be told.
a level of human greed* that's never been seen before which will destroy us all** fairly shortly
Not all all.
We have just reaching a level of moneyprinting that is historically unprecendented (i.e. creation of the illusion of wealth, which apparently can be allocated by the powers that be to preferred actors at the push of a return key).
The current expectations regarding payout by governments and ROIs from investments just cannot be fulfilled. There is not enough actual wealth. And the current debt mountain must be ablated by few 10s of percents (the 2008 crash eliminated 5% or so I think). This will cause gnashing of teeth not far from a limited nuclear exchange, but that's the way the cookie crumbles when you believe the easy, smooth lies of Keynesians and Krugmanites.
Once we have gone through the hardship that looms in the immediate future and honest accounting is back en vogue, we will talk about space faring again.
Please find any useful way to get "off the planet" while leaving the bioshpere at home.
