The comic "Astérix, Obélix et Netflix" is already in preparation.
The entourloupettes of the Académie Française are a major source of mirth even among french-speaking people.
to use the local language
Netflix doesn't come in Arabic either.

But are they justified?
The spine is not designed for upright posture to start with.
Especially if it is not upright in the first place, hmmmm?
In martial arts, you get constantly reminded to keep your STUPID SPINE UPRIGHT. There must be some kind of reason to that.
Cow-orkers have been a known staple of Usenet since the early 90s.
There have been a lot of studies and presentations by private and state groups which have not been published in the mainstream media, where it is the microwave pulses which damage cells, not heating, including cancer by where a mobile was held for long periods.
 and meetings by state-funded idiots and neurotic get-togethers don't count.
microwave pulses which damage cells
Not understanding anything about carrier frequencies and mistaking "pulses" for some force-applying magic stuff FAIL.
Smartphones are now being used for several hours per day by people who haven't picked up a book in 20-30 years.

Attachement to base reality would have lifted off the page at this point.
More seriously, possibly the shadowy "they" are watching all this corporate revenue being moved through Ireland for tax purposes.
Just phone up the big four.
Please tell us more.
Holy shit, this country is fucked up!
At least one commentard disagreed. Having visited the reeducation facilities which are in impeccable condition and maintained to the highest sanitary standards, a consequential downvote was just the right action to perform.
"I also have a problem. I'm not sure which side runs this Village."
I've looked at the Docker image repos, and I don't see any mention of image signatures. If they aren't signing images, they should be, like Linux repos do.
I hope so, otherwise COMDEDY GOLD events are sure to happen.
> Weinberg's Law
Someone spouts a bizarre meme (Since when is this being attributed to Weinberg btw, a person very much unconnected to computers?), this is then uplifted to "law" and is then repeated by windbags regularly. Meanwhile A380s that have been software-designed and are flying heaps of computers ACTUALLY FLY.
> He stated this way back in 1971, and nothing in programming, save the names of the languages used, has changed much since.
More sophomoric shit. If that were true, we would still be discussing whether structured programming were a good idea.
natural fluorescence means that blue-blocking goggles aren't effective for protecting your eyes
So how many drive-through beer & bang shops lead to death by lead slugs accelerated to several hundred meter per second?
The cleaning lady has the front door keys and the bank (an by extension, the state, which can "seize" the goods at the drop of a writ) has my wallet.
Oh, no, Trevor, you're mad! The cloud doesn't need backups! The cloud doesn't need DR to another cloud or locally! The cloud provides! The cloud is immeasurably cheaper! The cloud, the cloud, the cloud!
I can't remember anyone vaingloriously hyping cloudy services to such an extend in the forum?
This is not the marketing department after all.
Keeping your /home on a separate partition helps.
Yes, especially if that partition is encrypted.
Plus, a little git-managed directory with all those nasty configfiles (generally somewhere in /etc) and little compare-and-plonk scripts on the side.
Since 9/11, I have died many times over and I am now only an illusionless husk ripe for ISIS pickings....
A secondary payload to infect your visual cortex, dear. The fact that you noticed it is bad prognosis...
I woke up at 06:30 in the morning, what are you implying?
So there are likely still more surprises that will need amazingly similar patches in the future?
And those Gynoids from Ghost in the Shell.
And the military Boomers from Bubblegum Crisis.
Plus all those insectoid robots maintaining the Matrix. These were great (plus the fact they were probably agents who didn't get a job inside the Matrix because of a lack of human-oriented soft skills)
Spacko, is that you?
I would think that IT people of the non-managerial sort are naturally attracted to miracles of miniaturization and energy-efficiency. Possible exception for people who have the bubble-fuelled jobs in "financial software" (principally, drawing beautiful interactive graphs based on pseudo-science and mumbo-jumbo, should actually be in the domain of artistry), of course.
I feel this is basically having fun with the moral outragists, running with the wolves, all while the world burns etc...
> We ended up having to say it very slowly, very loudly over and over again
Must have been that satellite link to The Other Subcontinent.
Better than when irate islamists are allowed to design school furniture, I'm sure.
It turns out that Winston Smith was working in the spelling department.
I hoped this would seqgue into a hot sisterly lesbian sexxor, but no.
1) Be forewarned
2) "Come at me bro"
Has Anonymous hired Dr. King Schultz for optimal penetration?
Amazingly, we already have a word to describe your rioting terrorists, coined some time before the 9/11 brainrot set in and transformed about 60% of the populace into gibbering idiots: It's "rioters".
I am not even sure that those antenna things actually worked or were just a smokescreen to justify the "one antenna per
childcustomer" rule mandated by The Man.
Meanwhile "Team Reg" toasts the demise of another pirate creative content stealer in the pub, listening to Taylor Swift.
Ahhhh.... Economics. As hard ad no-go theorems but always conveniently brushed aside by the people in charge who demand to have innovation on tap and expect that payment in fresh paper money will be sufficient to get the process going-
Relatively minimal to what is being dumped onto us by the big Sun.
This falls into a subclass of "greenhouse effect mitigation". Solvable with some slight planetary engineering while other people resolutly try to get out of the medieval age.
Just being diverted and destroyed wholesale by Keynesian chimps.
> 56 dead from the Chernobyl pratfall
I see where you want to go with this article but I still take issue with that kind of statement. Even the rose-colored and scented WHO stats are above this number. Good thing is, one gets a natural park with open-air experiment in genetic changes of unforseen size in the middle of Europe.
But minimax is only valid in the situation of two adversaries (no cooperation implies pessimism) and perfect information for both players (the game matrix is on the table).
And even then there need not be a stable strategy by both players as the payoffs may differ.
Unless the driver gives a fuck about government regulations or needs to save a baby from a incoming predator strike etc. etc.
Why does this article fall off a cliff at the end? It reads like an abstract. MORE!!

While perusing the LHC timeline of operations, this data point was detected:
The size of the LHC constitutes an exceptional engineering challenge with unique operational issues on account of the amount of energy stored in the magnets and the beams. While operating, the total energy stored in the magnets is 10 GJ (2,400 kilograms of TNT) and the total energy carried by the two beams reaches 724 MJ (173 kilograms of TNT).
This is pretty boss!
We shall further infuriate the Good Congregation and term this the "Jehova Particle".
