Any plans to get LOHAN somewhere in the vicinity of a pole?

4) Something involving the Arapaho.

All hail the blue glow!
"I sympathize. I am personally in that camp. A slightly modified (give me my fucking up button!) "
Personally, I want an un-fucking up button, for when someone fills their PC with crap by clicking ok without reading... Or deletes files with names like system.ini, or finds regedit.exe and thinks it can post edit their Reg posts...
I wonder how long it will take before someone steals a car by plugging in a usb stick...
there's nothing quite like a REG party,
full of folk who are cool and not farty
but this ones in oz
and that's just because
london's full of them types who are arty.
Consider my amazeballs well and truly toted.
Re: Point of Issue
Buggerate is the one that gets me. Admittedly, from Urpeons who learned English from American TV.
When I first encountered the use of the verb 'to bugger' instead of 'to bug', I corrected them... But having a senior colleague stick their head in a meeting and ask if they can buggerate someone for five minutes had me banging my head on the table, and said someone replying that the meeting was nearly done and could they bugger them when they were free almost had me on the floor.
Cancel in writing by registered letter... probably cheaper than the call too :)
I read this article, what happened next will AMAZE you!
I didn't share it on social media! Because while I found it interesting and amusing, I wouldn't presume that anyone else would, and if they would they would probably have already seen it
Doing rock-all, surely?
Because LOHAN will do anything etc etc.
If they are officially employed, can they really be described as vigilante?

Re: anti-sex morality groups
By dividing down the middle?
Solar panel -> 12v Battery -> 12v bus
Works fine for caravans and boats. Only need a backup charger in case of emergencies like 6 weeks of rain. Or an English summer.
Next time I wire our house there will be some kind of 12v and balanced serial bus cabling installed so lighting, sensors and switching need no batteries or wireless between themselves, and the MCP can live on a computer in the house with no access to the internet.
Could even have a 12v fridge freezer so the smart meter brigade can't turn it off :)

Re: I felt a great disturbance in the Force,
Really? It sounded as if a hundred thousand people had said "wop'' to me.
Surely an autonomous car would be spying on it's own driving habits?
Tickets like 0.92g of gold dust at current price, if they're 100gsm copier paper and around 7cm * 15cm, that sounds about right...
I believe the FAA only regulates military air traffic when it is using civilian infrastructure, so not when they are killing brown people. Also, this notice relates to model aircraft- at 48ft wingspan, predator drones are probably not classified as models...
Re: "Gonzague Gay-Bouchery"
Not to mention, illegal in many jurisdictions.
"We will be making a submarine car. It can transition from being a submarine to a car that drives up on the beach," Musk said. Though he added, "Maybe we'll make two or three, but it wouldn't be more than that. It's not like we'd sell it, because I think the market for submarine cars is quite small."
But, as the market is people with private islands and drug dealers, the profit is probably quite large...

Who is Oscar Selfie, indeed, who are Oscar Selfies, if there are enough to refer to one of them as THAT Oscar Selfie?
Nope. Mainland Europe. Lunch is important here.
I'm glad the office has emptied out for lunch, as I've just made some very odd noises trying not to laugh at these comments. +1s for all!

I think it was more of a tIT angle.

Indeed. There's still five and a half Dune books to do before they need to invent some more star wars...
Re: On-going Research
a cube of floating ice displaces the same volume of water as the water that made up the ice. so as it melts, the level shouldn't change. If it dropped, it was probably due to it (and the researcher) ending up drunk.
Try the same experiment, only support the ice on matchsticks above the glass... the glass soon overflows. (assuming of course, that nothing ends up drunk.)
Out-gassing of dissolved co2 in the tonic would also cause a small decreasing in volume...
Re: "toilet attendant"
Why toilet attendant? The correct term is Bog Troll
Bog Troll (n): A man or woman who sits by the door of a public (or patrons only) toilet facility, offering (for a fee) a range of bad aftershave, soap, or soft bog roll to convenience users too drunk to slip past.
