This is true of most animals.

TomTom is evil.

If I know TomTom maps, the cameras will end up facing the wrong way down one-way streets.

Burger van busted offering free takeaway porn

Getting its cut

"It is unbelievable customers were being offered porn DVDs with their beer and burgers at an outlet that did not even have the necessary licences."

Presumably if the governement had been getting its cut, all would have been well.

Further away?

it's also closer to the pubs and curry houses thus increasing the probability of interacting with a local academic.

ISP redesign unites the web in nausea

Thumb Down

I thought it was a joke...

... because phishing sites at least attempt to look like their targets.

I truly hope Be isn't at the vangard of a new wave of pants websites but the recent Channel4 redesign suggests otherwise...

@lets see

If there are 40,000 revenue cameras in the UK each costing £20,000, that’s a total outlay of 800,000,000. Subtract from that the 100,000,000 earned by those cameras and divide that figure by the number of lives saved, gives a value per life of £804,597. NICE by contrast places a figure of somewhere between £20,000 and £30,000 on that same life. Some joined up thinking wouldn’t go amiss…
