This is actually true.
You are not helping, Mister Peler.
AFAIK, the plutonium and uranium are still more or less where they were in the first place.
Only the volatile elements resulting from nucleus splittings went AWOL.
Yeah, I live within a few hours of the mess should the #4 building collapse (which is still possible and which is still packed with nuclear fuel rods).
So what would the effects be, exactly?
Metal rods falling all over themselves??

Clearly we are in a movie, and Terry Gilliam is directing it.
And we are not even at the intermission yet.
Hopefully they got an eyeful of more scat session than they bargained for.
Although Yahoo!'s instant messaging service uses SSL to encrypt passwords when logging in, it does not prevent network eavesdroppers from intercepting, decoding and storing text messages and live webcam feeds between contacts.
Well, this lack of security is, well, completely unexpected from the likes of wazoo. SSL is a pretty new invention, you can't expect rollout to happen overnight, can you?
Stilwell in Burma!
How about in your MCU?
unless there was a "deal"
Mesmerized by Clippy!
which explains why the stock/property markets keep booming even when the rest of us are skint
That is not that.
These markets are booming because the money is easy (fuelled by newly printed money for bailouts, quantiative easing or to keep interest rates low, pyramiding through the fractional reserve banking system). The rest of us are "skint" because easy money fuels investments in things people do not really want nor need - generally high capital goods like skyscrapers and overpriced housing and cars, buildings full of cloud computing etc, which will lay fallow when the bubble bursts.
The fact that government keeps printing money, keeps people out of work with regulation and generally blows half of tax revenue on warfare (with a very large industrial tree feeding into it) and employs a fat percentage of the (overpaid) workforce at taxpayer's expense does not help at all.
Still waiting for the basic capital infrastructure and materials knowledge.
You know that the first thing that will happen is that someone will heed the cry "cyberwar" and ram his thing into the breach to bring "FREEHDUMS" to other people by basically blowing large swathes of a foreign country to smithereens from on high.
Then the guy will go home and collect the votes.
Meanwhile, the croaking begins.
Yes but at least with a bank account if the bank goes bust the first 50K or whatever is covered by the state.
It's not covered by the state, it's covered by everyone through inflation (i.e. a tax). While the people who got rich through fractional reserve banking ... stay rich.
Or it could be that like in Cyprus, your money suddenly is just gone by decree. Works too.
No, but any metal that doesn't rust away immediately, is not radioactive and overly toxic and is solid at room temperature will do. The rarer, the "more expensive".
This is a pretty old trick and not hard to grasp.
In a Robinson Crusoe + Friday scenario, fish for milliday transaction or coconuts are fine too.
Who is Gox and why do you mount him?
Fuzzy transactions, then?
You can say the same thing about a bank.
A banking account with a positive amount is just a very risky loan given to the bank...
Unfortunately, joules are hard to transport, hoard or even exchange.
So it's not money nor currency.
You need a solid commodity for that.
Now, if the LHC produced stable microscopic black holes with charge....
It's a like honest-to-god fractional banking system!
Even without the "unlimited fiat money via the
printing pressdatabase updates and 'free market operations'" territory.
Just add staid marble columns at the entrance.
Like the german Kaiser did: HU! A! WEI!
MTHR = Mean Time to Heat Ray
and prevents your harmful electromagnetic waves that cause health problems, such as endocrine malfunctioning, reproductive malfunctioning, cataract and brain tumour
As is the local custom, someone mistook microwaves for hard gamma rays.
then the phone you’ve so carefully "cleaned" and to which you'd attached the well "rubbed" sticker would stop working
UNLESS you applied it homeopathically.
Dunno it doesn't work me LOL.
If I were a central banker...
... I'd be worried now.
You clearly have no idea what central banking is about.
the open source zealots
Am I really reading an article by Orlo?
1) "You can't do anything against us, lube up"
2) "If you want to do anything against us, deep down it's just about filty lucre anyway, so don't"
That guy sure is a piece of work. A mix of narcisissm, american exceptionalism, belief in the omnipotent state and hypocrisy. And a desire to keep going on the useless talking heads roundabout.
But he's right. There *will* be lubing up. EU behaviour on subjects as diverse as FATCA and Ukraine says so.
Big boom on Moon on 9/11...
Surprise meteor over Russia just when everybody is looking at another space rock...
I think someone up there is trolling and I'm not sure what to think about it.
Next a Jupiter's moon will be gone missing.
Yeah it's easier to do the experiments based on what the government's left and right hand are doing.
Because inflation blasted things apart faster than "c" from each other, so currently every observer is getting more and more light from the universe that was thrown out beyond his "event horizon" way back when.
So we are in the middle and already see both ... but they don't see each other yet. Unless the universe is smaller than expected.
Shitty developers abound, too. No surprise there.
1) This is not a tiny mistake. It is tiny only in the sense of how delivering the wrong container is an off-by-one error because the serial numbers were nearly the same.
2) This has NOTHING to do with security & encryption. If you have this kind of problem in your radiation therapy machine, you have Therac-25 and dead people.
3) "It's also the hardest to test, because the testers in your company won't be motivated". You are doing your "testing by the gorilla regiment" wrong
Add to this "he's cheap, so he's good enough on this team" and "we don't have time to do it right".
Which means it's a case of shitty tools - in this case, the language.
There is a reason for why high-assurance code only may use a subset of C.

Why should it be illegal? Are you being forced to do Netflix??

That would mean subscriptions go up. Cue ISP customer butthurt and moaning.

“engage with, and support low-income and developing countries so that they benefit from our work on tax.”
Yeah, right. We will be totally forgetting about mercantilism, trade blocks, punitive import taxes and generally about f*cking brown people up their wazoo because we need to pull in the goods all of a sudden ....
A likely story.
The last time I checked, I haven't undersigned anything about participating in the "Global War on Stuff", which includes the 5-trillion boondoggle about wrecking Iraq. Did I mention yearly 3 billion pumpout to "the sole democracy in the Middle East"?
"Infrastructure" my ass. If taxes went to "infrastructure" we would have skyhooks by now.
Yep, these tricks are well known and are totally internally consistent. The people who implement these generally feature arm brassards with wild symbols. General socialistic well-being ensues.
The world's top 20 finance ministers have signalled once again that they're sick of their taxes disappearing offshore and have signalled a strong intention to get their cash back.
There is just one little problem: It is not "their" cash (which, however, they take upon themselves to boldy destroy by inflationary actions). Robbers and highwaymen of the lower classes (those with guns in hand) and of the higher classes (those with boys in blue with guns in hand) may lay claim to the contents of your purse, not to mention your actual physical existence, but there are some slight moral problems with that kind of attitude. Which, in our sufficiently "social" welfare-warfare permafail "nation states" are wont to be hushed up or delicately covered by random political noise.
"Life isn't a game."
U wot mate?
It's not this chip.
If that is a problem it means you dump most of the energy going into the chip out into the aether.
Years ago I was in a senior project role at one of our National Laboratories...
Gordon Freeman, is that you?
my head hurts
Luckily no body orifices emit painful signals. That's the good news.
maybe I'll get my identity back when I sober up?
Sure. "We can remember it for you wholesale".
This discussion has been had in the early 90's.
Pretty sure I have heard that speech back before the "Global Wars On Stuff" and possibly even the delicious Greenspan-fuelled dotcom bubble. Maybe back in President Clingon's times.
Been rummaging in old ASCII texts, have you?
"accept all certificates, it's the only way, young jedi"

In particular, if you can't test.
Or if you "forget" to test.

Mr Turtle, your nurse is on the phone. It seems your scheduled medication is running late.
