Doesn't sound half so interesting as Year of Bonking.
That's not an asteroid impact crater, it was made with a spoon.
"One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach; all the damn vampires"
Droidberry dangles sounds serious.
Depends. It's exactly the size of one standard Galactipool table though.
They tried that, unfortunately government rules say you must have a secretary present if a decision is to be taken. So the official decision is taken after the lunch, when no one can quite remember what was decided before the brandy arrived. Because of course you wouldn't want the secretary taking notes over lunch.
(Dramatization, may not have happened)
What is it and when did the link appear next to the channel?
...including the aviation-related environmental impacts...
"How to get ahead when navigating?"
"Hey, this sounds interesting!"
I should possibly qualify my previous statement- even when Belgium doesn't have an actual government, there are still 6 other sub-governments up and running,
Made from the evilest parts of the evilest browsers from history?
"Shortage of government?"
Is there such a thing?
Yes. Every time Belgium has an election, there is a shortage of government for up to a year and a half. Interestingly, things generally improve during these periods, and then go crap again once they all stop infighting and start working out what they can break.
Obviously, the usually used unit would be micro dD, because there's not a lot of use for the full unit.
Omni.science is gone :(
Mostly it's used in snake-polishing.
The texts aren't the problem. The people trying to convince others that it is 100% true and using persuasion sticks to help are the problem.
Thanks. I just had it stuffed.
Check out the range of bars on Discworld Mud... And the range of drinks. You can get so unbelievably pished that you fall unconscious or wander blindly, have an unbelievably strong coffee that sends you out the other side of sober, have absinthe that makes you see bunnies... There's even badly rolled cigarettes and dodgy mushrooms if drinking isn't your thing. And a type of pepper you snort and sneeze so hard it blows you across the room...
I know that it is considered bad form to divulge too much of the plot in tales of this nature, but I will say I found the rope descent wearing Louboutin heels unfeasible – though, not having tried this stunt myself, I can neither verify not deny its possibility.
It wouldn't be the first on-the-edge-of-disbelief rope descent in a parlabane book... I'm thinking of Be My Enemy here
Southhampton is pretty flat- but the contour lines are there, just very faint in that screenshot... look around the motorway intersection at the bottom left.
Saag is actually generic greens- Palak is specifically spinach
They're all the one true hitchhikers :) I;m sure Addams said they all happen in slightly parallel universes because some jokes don't work in some universes...
Except the movie. Because most of the jokes are there, but only the first half of them. And because Marvin.
There's only one feature I want in a new browser:
Tree style history and back and forward buttons- so I can look at three links from one page and see what order I visited them, or go back 3 levels and up another branch of the tree and still be able to click back and see the pages I visited up the other branch
Well, I for one welcome our new robot vampire overlords...
For example, NASA wants a huge lasso in space now.
For catching the cow again, obviously.
So everything that there isn't a law demanding it be keep secret... goes on a public sharepoint site.
Thus absolutely guaranteeing that no one can ever find it.
But good god, please not Justin Beiber.
upvote for recommending Hey! That's my fish!
The spinoffs- hunters and gatherers and ark of the covenant are not a patch of the full game... Particularly not with a full set of expansions (well, not catapult or wheel of fortune... too random).
A full set has over 200 tiles and takes several hours, there's a lot of politics around who you attack with your towers, who you can talk into making a different move that advantages you...
Small world with the expansion (also available on android) is an idea starter game (and if you get it on a tablet, an idea pub/waiting for train/on train/pub again waiting for people type game), it takes about 5 minutes to learn the rules (there are only really 3...), and a total beginner can get lucky with a race and do surprisingly well and want to keep playing, even if they drop back to not doing so well in the next few games...
In the developed world, no, but if you came from Lancashire and didn't know any better then I think that's an acceptable excuse. After all, we shouldn't criticize those less fortunate than ourselves.
If you come from Lancashire and haven't yet crossed the border to God's County, well... Tripe eating might be understandable. But not excusable.
There is no excuse for ever eating tripe. Its whole reason for existing is to be indigestible.
Meh, it's nothing new, didn't someone already put a statue of a massive cock next to some bronzes in Trafalgar square?
Heh, someone isn't a Pink Floyd fan :)
All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in a giant NSA data center in Wyoming.
It doesn't have to be better than classical physics at actually doing machine learning, just better than humans at finding the model you need to train in order to show that data -> answer.
I'll take some magic quantum sauce on my quantum chips please :) Hopefully, the quantumness will ensure exactly the right amount of sauce per chip. Or at least demonstrate that the amount of sauce on that particular chip is exactly the right amount, with workings.
It seems to me that quantum machine learning could build a system like Gordon Way's Reason. Ie. you feed in all the relevant data, and you train the quantum computer with the answer you want, and it generates the simplest way to get from the data to the answer...
Man With The Golden Gun, seeing as it was about a highly efficient solar cell.
(For certain values of 'about')
Wireless charging spot for Androids
Fixed it for you :)
There is no blood stain in that stairwell... I'm assuming the non-duplex t shirt printer hasn't arrived yet?
When you touch it, a small worrying sign lights up saying 'Panic' and it transforms into a bird.
Do you mind? I am originally from Yorkshire and the people there are...feck it you're right, they are different! :-)
Me too. But not different. Better.
The first one looks like solenoid winding.
The second, no idea, but I want one.
Both twig and dropping +1
It should now be two words that Autocorrect can randomly pick when you attempt to type something on a tiny keyboard with fat fingers.
"...and her grandmother only speaks Chinese. When Priscilla and I decided to get married, I told her grandmother using Chinese. She was really shocked"
Probably because he said "I wish to marry your sheep."
There's elements of Neil Asher in there too
Not to mention Peniston
Don't forget that most English of products, the Belgian bun. Which no one in Belgium has ever heard of. And generally react with surprise and alarm when shown something named after them.
