The 3 tenets of politics
1: Promise everything.
2: Deliver nothing.
3: Blame someone else.
Agreed re fruit-connector
Just go with a standard USB socket, like my Vauxhall.
Aircon will suck the batteries dry, but we'd only need it 3 days a year!
TL;DR = WANT!
(Mines the one with the Palestinian Plutonium in the pocket)
They had trouble installing the NSA backdoor on the servers.
The first comment made when this story hit Slashdot?
The researchers are totally off base here. These aren't self-portraits; they're writing. When transliterated into the Roman alphabet, they read "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"
I foresee the cancellation of F1, Top Gear & everything Dr Who related - the only BBC shows I watch.
This coupled with a massively increased budget for 'Stenders, Costume bl**dy Drama & Celebrity "I can't dance to save my life".
"such a claim by tea partiers would be admitting man went there, and i'm pretty sure it says in that there book of theirs that we didn't."
Fixed that for you.
I do see where you're going with this...
Never mind the width...
Feel the quality.
The record companies need to make music worth "stealing" again, instead of album after album of utter Cowell.
I'll just leave this here...
Of course, the conspiracy theorists will be along in a minute to explain that the riots were started by "Da Gubmint" in order to reclaim their control over the dear peepul, which has been bypassed by all this "social netw*nking 'n' stuff".
Not a black helicopter, Murdoch's illegal spy drone.
I've heard of it.
Mine's the one with "Diogenes" on the nametag.
The TV Batmobile was originally a 386 cubic inch V8 powered Lincoln Futura concept car, sold to Barris for $1.00. (Lincoln are indeed a division of Ford Motor Company)
A company in the US now has a license to make replicas of it, for $150,000 a time!
(Black Helicopter because Bats has one of those too)
You're right. MS have missed all the boats.
My Motorola phone runs Android = Linux
My Sony Bluray & Amp both run Busybox = Linux
My Toshiba TV runs Busybox = Linux
My PCs & Laptop run Ubuntu = Linux
My MP3 runs RockBox = Linux
My SkyHD box runs Busybox = Linux (check Settings/Software/Details for 109 pages of GPL & BSD licences. Linus is mentioned by name.)
Yes, but thankfully, Keanu has dropped plans to play Kaneda.
Anyone who wants the non-Steelbook version can just give Asda 13quid like I did last night.
What I'm really waiting for at the moment is an English-subtitled version of this:-
We can but hope...
That they don't think of obtaining a DNA sample as part of the registration of a birth.
@ AC 16:04
"I'd be happy if the fucker were strung up in public as a warning to other scum of his type. "
No thanks. Bringing back the stocks should do nicely.
(If he's dead, he won't learn from his mistakes & will probably repeat them next time round.)
1: Get root
2: Install CyanogenMod
Dodgy Android apps?
@ Mark C Casey
The Jabba scene existed all along.
Under the CGI slug is a now deceased Irish actor named Declan Mulholland,
delivering the same lines that the subtitles showed, while wearing a hideous fur waistcoat.
It's Boba Fett who was never there. Proof? I gots proof:-

As seen on the side of a London bus...
Science can fly man to the moon.
Religion can only fly him into buildings.
We need BIG SPACE operas
Like Arthur C Clarke's "Rendezvous with Rama".
+1 for Doc Smith's Lensman, also his "The Skylark of Space" series.
How about a live-action Dan Dare?
@Paul Dx & Ashton Black - The subject is "The Best Sci-Fi Film _Never_ Made.", not "My fave flick".
The answer lies in Top Gear!
Their Combine Harvester/Snowplough _nearly_ worked.
Given that combines have a power feed at the front for the harvester bits,
a snow blower attachment might have been a better idea.
BAA could keep a dozen or so of these attachments at each airport,
and when the weather starts looking dodgy, rent some combines from nearby farmers.
Just pass your text through Google Translate into a random language, then back.
If you're really paranoid, make a couple of passes through different languages before English.
