"Car simulator"?! I smell a marketing opportunity.
>Ohio is the stand-out state for sex with inanimate objects
That, of course, would be "for public sex with inanimate objects". And then only for those instances that caught the eye.
>It's been the year of Linux for some time.
Obviously, very large values of "year" involved here. Or what was originally said, long ago, was "ya hear of linux" and it's yet to be put right.
>That "Install the Yahoo! Toolbar" checkbox will be unticked by default for Adobe's updates
some time after the preferences you've set for Flash--relative to its use of audio and video devices, to data storage, and to update preferences--'stick' for any length of time at all... Tick.. Tick...
>don't give your bank account information to Nigerian Princes
Russian princesses are OK, though, right?
Weaponize! Just in case some other AI is getting the treatment. No one wants to find themselves on the low end of an AI gap, do they?
From there it's a short hop to collusion between the multiple, weaponized AIs--("Thanks, HUmans")-- and humanity is a thin sprinkling of warm, but cooling, ash across the entire planet.
Seriously, though: AI is going to be weaponized before it's set to make the world a utopia (somehow defined). There isn't a single "we/us", so no "our". AI isn't going to be shared around like the atmosphere. And with AI set to come up with creative ways to more effectively keep what's currently 'ours' ours, it's likely that AI will destroy--probably all of humanity and what it has built up--because that's what it will be put to work at first and fastest.
Apparently unable to think clearly when that one reared its head.
MFAS-DT, you weren't the AC poster in question; your style falls short--it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi. Nice try, though.
>The ... freedom.
There is nothing in what you've written that really warrants your posting anonymously. You should--by your own standards--be free to post what you've posted under you own name (or avatar, if applicable)*. And without fear of being pigeon-holed or stigmatised. Anonymity is largely the assassin's refuge and aerie. But it can also trap.
Circumspection about anonymity, as a resort, should have priority over circumspection about what you want to say.
* I'm not without sin in this regard, though; I've posted anonymously in order to avoid too much, and accumulated, hate from certain quarters, representatives/acolytes of which are known to circulate in these waters...
is all that is needed.
>what will it be shipping back?
Shipping containers, of course. Filled with *our* air. Clean air, and UNpaid for!
>They are working on a smaller version so that they can extend the life of the 5S and include NFC so that Applepay is available to more at a cheaper price
... a key-fob with BT ear-piece/mic + 'print reader, and just enough smarts to 'pay and (dis)play'? Roughly between the iPod nano and the Watch.
So hard to coordinate, the pinks. Much moreso than the oranges, anyway.
> were time travel possible, you'd be perfectly free to go back and make as many tweaks and changes as you'd like and see what would happen.
Yes, but to "see what would happen", you'd have to go 'back' or 'across' to another verse, one not your own. However, if that were possible--energy requirements aside, and given the nature of consciousness--could you not arrange to travel to that same verse repeatedly/continually (to the point of continuously), ending up--effectively--in a different verse on a basis indistinguishable from it being your 'native' verse? ...
Never mind: found it by searching on "kangaroo drone" and ...
"of nude or sexual images"
Bare breasts don't constitute nudity everywhere and always. Nor are photos of bare breasts necessarily sexual in nature. Legislation of this type may not be particularly apt.
>What reliable sauces would you use?
My first thought was to proffer "open sauce", but that's not going to happen--for various reasons--so.... never mind that.
The in-fighting is theatre, in the same way watching someone repeatedly punch themselves in the head can be seen as theatre.

Is there a problem here? Do you fear they're going to forget the fu once they move into TRW? Or that the fu is less applicable there?
>why did she have to be naked?
A zen thing. You wouldn't understand.

@PaulR79 "a large amount of people" might be correct if you were serving up minced human flesh. However, since the "people" you are referring to are living, and are discrete and distinguishable and, therefore, countable, in most variants of English, correct usage would be, instead, "a large number of people".
Aside: Hitchhiking does offer a periodic change of scene. And you can look up without craning. And there's plenty of leg-room while checking out the scenery. But consider a bicycle as a principle mode; it has many advantages...
Anyway... the coin of apology is everywhere and inexorably being diluted--first by the mob-forced blood-vengeance demand for resort to it (for the slightest misstep, be it verbal, sartorial, etc.--no real limits) and, secondly, by the ease with which an apology can be shit out^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hissued from the corporate body, when circumstances really demand it, and everything being made 'nice' thereby. Apology is approaching meaninglessness asymptotically.
Über deserves a smoking hole, though, and that can't arrive too soon.
I wonder if the harpoon could be used to launch Phil off of the comet's surface--after doing as many of the experiments as possible within the first battery charge period, and with consideration for the need of direct contact with the surface for those. If the harpoon can be fired, and Phil relaunched with some chance of having another go at a 3-point landing, somewhere else and sometime later... Could turn into an interesting, challenging long-distance hobby.
Oh, yes: "a half million" != "a half billion".
>the right to express their approval, disapproval or complete disinterest
If your disinterest is genuinely complete, you'd never exercise that right; apart from there being no point in doing so, doing so would make a liar out of you.
that it makes you bald, too? There's an apparent correlation there, anyway. More research!
'There's a sucker born again every minute.' At least for the last 6000 years or so.
>Anywho, the time she spent getting the loyalty app for said rank coffee shop to open ...
It would have been much worse if paying with cash. One upside to pay-by-bonk is that the means to pay is almost certainly already in-hand (literally), so there's much less need for the hard-of-thinking to go faffing about in pockets and purses for the necessaries--after the total has been announced over the store's PA system.
The voice of experience?
It's ... like ... déjà vu all over again?
That was as clear as mud--possibly a function of your being so parsimonious with punctuation.
I don't mind el Reg engaging in some animated hijinx with Jesus (or rejecting the original version of this post), but does that animation have to be so g*-awfully irritating? Try subtle, for C*'s sake!

Shock! Stop the presses!
Oh, wait! An-what? Okay, then.
Nothing to see here. Move along folks. Move along.

>He is the first man to headline the annual event, which celebrates women's achievement in computing.
Not sure he'll be the last, but reasonably sure he'll be the last for a while, anyway. Unless, they make it into an annual barbecue.
p.s. "Nadz" or "Nutella"? Tough choice, tough choice.
It might help to think of it as a corral.
Out, yes, but in an adult-sized Faraday cage, no?
One upvote for that. Worth more than one, though, given that I had to log in...

There's a fine line between smart'n'lazy and smart'n'evil.
"You thought Apple products never get viruses? You'd be right,
There are no Mac viruses. Period.
What there are, are trojans which can get installed by careless or reckless users."

5 thumbs down, eh? Tsk, tsk! Apparently it's necessary to include the joke icon every time.
What's the point of this yarn?
