Did you even read World War Z

"...books such as World War Z, Resident Evil etc. We do quibble slightly at the movies and books themselves, however, which generally underestimate by a long way the sheer amount of violence that even relatively poorly-equipped armed forces are able to bring into play."

As WWZ points out, to kill a zombie you need to kill the brain. Landmines, just blows the legs off. Automatic weapons, machine guns... you can do a lot of damage but again, unless you get a head shot your not going to stop Mr Z, he'll just keep coming. Even a decapitated head will try and bite your ankles. Nukes? Okay, vapour at ground zero, and burnt to carbon in the fire storm zone but outside that you've still got zombies, radioactive zombies at that. Not a great bang for the buck.

No, the only cost effective approach is an accurate rifle and a head shot. Sure a cricket bat will work, but do you want to get that close?

Mine's the dirty brown mac by the lav door.

Nokia to fire 1,700 staff

Thumb Down

Duty of care, my ar$e!

Nokia is a corporation, employees are assets and are exploited as assets. Probably not even their best asset, all the best 'assets' saw the writing on the wall and left years ago.

Nokia Siemens Networks in 'synergy-related headcount restructuring'

Pev
Flame

The clue is in the name...

It's Nokia Siemens *Networks* - sadly the twats that did the N810 are probably onto cocking up the next big thing as they work for Nokia Mobile Phone. The phone people actively shun the networks people and visa versa. The network people only like the old Bokia 6150 anyways as it was the last Nokia GSM phone that actually worked reliably.

Anyone with any history with Bokia knew that the writing was on the wall as soon as the merger with Siemens was announced anyway. Bokia has a long standing history of selling out the parts of the organisation that were about to go tits-up. It's standard operating procedure now... and Simon Wiley-Coyote has been talking about synergy since the very first fscking day.
