They didn't provide evidence that ALL women find larger penises more attractive. They found evidence that a small group of Australian women do. I believe these are the same women that are statistically most likely to sleep with a bloke on the first date, too. Perhaps the results would be different with a more prudish sample group.
I'll admit that the results of this study likely actually DO apply to Paris Hilton...
Re: We Found Life!
I'm pretty sure they will conclude they found an authentic Martian sex stone... in other words, just another fucking rock!
Could work in some situations
One of the windiest spots in the US, the Columbia Gorge, also happens to have a hydroelectric dam in the middle of it. Wind would make an excellent supplement to hydro if used to pump water from downstream back to up above the hydroelectric dam. Wind in conjunction with gas or coal fired plants doesn't help that much, because it does nothing to reduce the required peak capacity of the fossil fueled generators.
In the context of criticizing the Catholic church, the term "buggering" does seem much more appropriate, doesn't it?
Here in the states, nobody seems to object to a burger chain calling themselves "In-n-out Burger", even despite most people's penchant for modifying the bumper stickers they give out to read "In-n-out Urge".
Paris 'cause whenever I see her I get an urge for a... burger?
I'm rushing to trademark the term "Crap Store"
But I'm afraid Apple will claim prior use!
It takes two to tangle
When one vapid twat sues another vapid twat, only the lawyers win. Grab a seat and pass the popcorn...
Add HIV to the list of diseases that can be transmitted via breast milk. Of course, since human breast milk is quite expensive and hard to come by, I suspect this ice cream shop is simply lying about one of the main ingredients used...
Would you consume anything that came out of Paris's nipples?
These meteorites could have originated from the Earth itself, having been kicked up in a huge impact a billion years ago, e.g. the impact that theoretically created the moon.
Paris because she's an expert on huge impacts...
"I think about my wife..."
If you're thinking about your wife when you get off, you might as well be doing it with your wife? Don't most men wank precisely because they DON'T want to think about their wife while getting off? Sure, he's just trying to preserve his marriage, bit I'd say run, don't walk, away from this lying wanker.
Turn about is fair play
So sue the bitch for filing a false police report!
Air Freighting dogs
Dogs shipped via airlines do get special handling, but cost $400 to $500. There was a case recently where someone shipped a furless cat in midwinter which contracted hypothermia and died due to the baggage workers taking to long to unload it from the plane. Being put into a cargo hold is a VERY traumatic experience for a pet.
Only a complete moron would believe anything that a marketing person says!
Paris 'cause her only talent is marketing herself.
Precisely the problem
For citizens, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Unfortunately, for police ignorance of the law IS a perfectly valid excuse! What incentive then to the police have to actually know the laws they are sworn to enforce?
As the owner of a registered vehicle, you can be reasonably expected to know who else was driving it. As the owner of an open wireless router, you have no way of knowing who else might be using it. I'm not sure it's ever been tested in court, but I believe the "I had an open wireless connection and I have no idea who downloaded that porn" is a valid affirmative defense.
Dollars, not pounds
It's being released in the states on March 27 for 249.99 USD, so unless the exchange rates have changed recently, £250 sounds a little steep.
On the bus?
Where exactly are they going to find a WiFi connection to stream video over whilst riding the bus?
Check you assumptions
Jared Loughner smoked a lot of dope. I'm not sure the amount of deaths indirectly attributed to marijuana use can be assumed to be exactly zero. I also have personal experience from riding with stoned drivers that it makes them worse drivers while simultaneously convincing them that they are driving really well -- but then I suspect alcohol does that as well.
Tempest in a teapot
Marijuana is worse for you per weight of substance smoked. In evaluating the health risks, it is generally assumed that pot smokers consume only a small fraction of the amount of burning weeds that tobacco smokers consume. If a pot smoker tried to keep up with a fag smoker on a puff-for-puff basis, they'd soon bear a striking resemblance to Ozzy Osborne.
X terminals were poorly conceived
X made the client/server split in the wrong place, requiring all mouse input to go round trip to the server and back before giving feedback to the user. Ever try to draw something with that model on a slow network? Even dumb terminals/thin clients need to be able to perform programmed functionality locally.
If you're going to count AT&T Blit terminals as "Thin Clients", you might as well also include the venerable IBM 3270 terminals in that category as well.
Users want to surf the web for porn without malicious software getting onto their machine. Windows can't handle that requirement because it is susceptible to attack, and IOS can't handle because it is controlled by a control freak who doesn't want his perfect product sullied by the availability of porn. That leaves google which may be able to deliver what users want. Whether or not they will be successful remains to be seen, but I think they have had a good track record in implementing new technologies so far (although Android has matured too slowly for my tastes.)
Proof that half the "user base" are complete idiots
"52 per cent of the total base really wanted a tablet running a Microsoft OS"
Microsoft OSes, and the applications that run on them, are designed for a WIMP (Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing device) interface. They are virtually impossible to use on a touchscreen device without a keyboard. So half the users don't get the fact that all their favorite apps are going to have to have the user interface completely redesigned anyway, thus there is zero benefit to their tablet running Windows!
So it's good only for porn, then? Exactly what I would expect from Apple...
(But seriously, what are the limits on the number of people whose heads can be individually tracked and provided with unique stereoscopic images?)
Or as they call this in the States...
Just another normal Tuesday afternoon!
My daughter got her pencil confiscated from her by her school bus driver when she was trying to do homework on the bus because "she might hurt someone with it". Later, the boy she was forced to sit next to was threatening to stab her with a nail-clipper, and the bus driver didn't care. Of course, the boys who were threatening her were white and she is black, but that doesn't mean there were any different standards of conduct depending on race...
What makes you think they trusted them before? What alternative do they have? Homeschooling is only an option if one or more parents don't work for a living, and private schools cost a minimum of $10,000 per year in the states. If you don't send your kid to school, you go to jail. We never trusted them to begin with, but we simply have no choice but to continue to allow them to mistreat our children.
That's how the US school system works: as long as you claim you're not a perv, you're allowed to do anything you want. It is only if you admit that you like looking at pictures of teens in various states of undress that you get into trouble. No, really, in any case of an accusation of inappropriate conduct by a school employee they simply take the employee's word for it that they did nothing wrong.
I think the tight red dress only works if you're female... of course, I could be completely misunderstanding the preferences of the Reg staff.
"Go Yankees" or "Yankees go home"?
My favorite Berra-ism has always been "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded."
Are you rooting for the New York Yankees, or for 'Merkins in general?
For all you English non-baseball fans, Baseball is just like Cricket, except the games are a lot shorter 'cause the use a lot more steroids....
The marker that scientists use to date fossils (Carbon 14 dating) follows a 27 million year cycle.
