What, no Ms Bee reprimands?
What a sad lot of commentators today. Or has Ms Bee the Friday off?
My vote is that it's her body to do with as she pleases.
Surgically altering her body for tennis. What's next, a post op transgendered female tennis player?
I know, there already was one.
The Korean character, riul, is for both R and L sound phonetically.
Check out the word Olympics written in Korean characters. The second character will be riul.
feh - 13 definitions - A [yiddish] word - expression of distaste or disgust, or in slang term general uninterest.
I for one welcome our uninterested, disgusted meme.
" Too many people in this fread are on about "rewarding those who work" as if working is (in and of itself) a Good Thing. It isn't - if we could 100%computerise and robotise the entire planet's means of production then we could all lounge about and please ourselves all day with no downside. "
Then we would have to go through that nasty Cylon/Terminator business.
Oh, wow I got a great idea for a sequel-squared - "Cylon v. Terminator." Caprica six (or an 8) takes on John Conner's personal fembot.
I saw the headline and came straight in for Ms. Bee's comments.
I saw the headline and came straight in for Ms. Bee's commentary on the inevitable misogynistic comments.
Excellent job, keep holding back the rising tide of waste of bandwidth.

Or Quebec north of Quebec City. Discounting the French language difference, of course.
CD player is not a programmable machine
Comparing a computer to a CD player or a tape player is absurd. Those players are read only, they cannot be harmed by software on the media.
I connected my last USB drive purchased to linux first and renamed all of the .exe files and the autorun files and folder before connecting to Windows.
Unintended Side Effect Review
"Suggested companion titles: Pestilence Quarterly, the Unfortunate Occurrence Review and Which Disaster? magazine."
jolly roger for those who highjacked the credit markets.
Sarah's becoming the BMFH!
Imagine a job where one can tell a member of the public ODFO.
grounding and loose ballast
There are grounding wires in the pit where the vehicle stops, just like in a toll booth lane.
Montreal GP, almost a F1 generation ago, when Hakkinen drove a McLaren-Mercedes, corner workers (USA for marshals) discovered what was being used for ballast. A hunk of depleted uranium departed the McLaren in a corner. It took a good sized gouge out of the pavement, before skipping into the usual tire barrier. The struck tire had a bowling ball sized dent in its side. Said tire was about 60 cm (2 ft) to the side of a hole in the catch fence where an observer was stationed.
F1 uses supercomputers to model a race weekend and during the event to adjust tactics and strategies.
perfectly cromulent word
The Springfield town motto is "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man."
PH because her image has embiggened many a man.
Just what I want, Google grabbing more power and knowledge.
Glad he's not interested, my blood pressure went down a lot when I heard that.
When will El Reg come up with an Gevil icon?
T5 USA Proaganda Commercial
On USA TV a commercial is running for T5 which shows T5 as a giant aquarium, lots of sea life moving easily and smoothly through the terminal, with seals (or sea lions) playfully going in and out of the security detectors, etc. I wonder exactly what is the message for humans.
The video is linked on this page:
IT link - obviously CGI.
Place your Onions on the belt.
Local supermarket with self service lanes, after each item is scanned or weighed a loud announcement is made, "Place your onions [or whatever item] on the belt." The overseer looks over and notes, yup, onions.
All of the photos have her as being dominated.
Maybe she needs lessons from the Moderatrix.
My mind wouldn't parse that spelling, I read it as ProductStation, something like a PlayStation that makes products out of ideas. Wasn't far off.
Simple to use root instead of sudo
One time sudo
Then you can log in as root.
