@Graham Marsden RE: Opt out?
Precisely. Got it in one. This is already happening in UK hospitals.
"You can opt out. But if you do we won't have access to your medical history so we won't be able to treat you."
Opt in or F-off.
That's Entertainment !
"the big chill-down of the space freezer for loading into Discovery was a major event in its hometown of Birmingham"
Those long Winter evenings must just fly by.
I for one welcome our....
Wrong thread - sorry.
I admit it ........ The other one was me !
....... and my doctor says the rash will be gone in a week or two if I keep taking the meds.
Simply add a strategically placed cork and voila! - A doll that explodes! (messily)
"Zavvi has continued to experience significant difficulty in obtaining stock on favourable credit terms. This has resulted in considerable working capital difficulties as a result of the failure of EUK, in addition to continuing operating losses."
Which translates in English as "We're feckin' skint !"
Wow - Such passion on this thread.
Can I just say that I have a pet slug named Kevin.
But he's not terribly smart.
Who would they call ?
It doesn't matter really - they'd only end up going through an automated options system before
being redirected to a call centre in India or some foreign parts.
Paris... foreign parts.. Heh heh!
Dirk, was without a doubt the world's unluckiest Orb Spider. Not only was he captured and
incarcerated in a perspex prison, but he was subjected to massive G forces and subsequent
weightlessness while being abducted and taken aboard an orbiting space station.
In his desperate attempts to escape, Dirk managed to squeeze out of his cage. Hoping to
find a way to stowaway and get back to Earth, he hid inside a small toolbag.............
Building Applications ?
What? is that like planning permission or summat?
But they'll still have to wait 4 - 6 weeks for out of stock parts to be shipped from Taiwan.
Then they'll be the wrong size parts.
Then the supplier will deny all knowledge of the original order.
By which time the warranty will have expired.
So they'll have to engage a lawyer to fight their case.
Which will cost them an arm and a leg.
Which will require them to self-repair again !!
I don't think I'll worry anytime soon.
Not that I'm cynical or anything, but...
It's obvious that the town is going to lose, unless WB etc. decide to make a gesture.
HOWEVER - I wonder what would happen if someone named a new town after an 'existing'
super-hero? ...... Mega law suit from the IP owners without mercy methinks.
Paris, because I'd like to see her other side too.
Make the beeb subscription only.
If I don't want Sky I don't buy Sky.
If I don't want to pay-per-view for something I don't.
If I don't want the BBC I am forced to pay and get it anyway.
If as everyone says it is so damned good then it would surely thrive by subscription only.
Not very good
at slug-balancing then?
RE: Computers make you stupid.
I'm no pedant but.....
Solomon Grundy - "make absolutely know sense at all?"
I once saw in a university magazine the editor using "no" instead of "know", but that just about takes the biscuit.
How about all those people who dont know the difference between "lose" and "loose" to.
OK - That last "to" had to be an 'o' short deliberately, right?
Otherwise it's just to funny!!
"Right - Switch it on!.......
........er.....is it supposed to do that?.......
<BANG> THE END
Paris has very probably Hadron
Hooray for the Colonel !
So KFC do cookies now?
Google ate my hamster !
I no longer care who takes over the world; They are all as corrupt and
depraved as each other.
But I do object to the rapidly becoming ubiquitous use of the non-verb
"to google" when referring to conducting a web search.
It really gets my goat, and my goat is not happy.
Benefit of the doubt.
I am dubious, but willing to give the benefit of the doubt.
I know loads of non-IT common or garden folk who haven't the first clue
about nettiquette and probably don't know one end of a PC from another.
But they know how to find and download music, films and anything else,
dump it to a stick, ipod or phone, and transmit it around their friends like
Paris - Living proof of complete ignorance.
Can I be the Racing Car?
Of course she is, and......
...If I had five identical boogers I'd make a song and dance about it too!
Paris ... 'cos women don't have boogers.
The REALLY BIG question.
If a grocery store employee says "Paper or Plastic?"
and there's no-one in the store to hear it,
.....Will it adversely affect the price of a tin of baked beans?
...The shopping trolley is out there!
Jelly & Doughnuts !
I wonder how excited everyone would be if a hitherto unseen painting
of a patch of grass had been found beneath a famous Van Gogh portrait?
