Re: Come in Major Eadon!
A laughing gnome?
Re: Age restricted sales = ID card preparation
Similarly, I was asked for ID at a hotel bar in California in 1996. I was 30 at the time. During the eighties I was drinking Guinness in pubs and buying cider at offies from age 13 with no greater challenge than to be asked my age and maybe what year I was born.
Re: "hydrational expansion-coefficient"
Just leave some space at the top of the flask. This was a common method for the overnight preparation of dried tares and hemp seeds for use as fishing bait when I was a kid. We only had glass flasks back then but now you can get 'unbreakable' metal ones which should help too.

Hungarians? Bulgarians? Vulgarians?
I'm the only one WMBO in my house.
Re: "...taking EastEnders off the air"
Now that's what I call public service broadcasting.
Re: Paris because she's a lady who certainly does turn!
Re: "There are still villages and towns...full of unemployment..."
And now the current crop of Tory bigwigs are pointing at those very people and blaming them for being a drain on the system.
"...the watchdog believes punters will expect "moderate restrictions"..."
We should tell them that we don't.
That is all.
Re: in the former there's no crime except
Taking without consent (TWOC in the vernacular) sounds about right.
Re: grab a useless "celebrity"
You could dress the whole thing up as a, um, talon show. Call it something like The X Raptor.
Ok, ok, I'm going.
Re: the red-headed stepchild of desktop operating systems
As there should be.
Re: SF is not just about "big ideas", it only looks that way...
"Related are here "supernatural" stories and "magical-realism"."
<joke>Maybe you're confusing Science Fiction with Pseudoscience Fiction</joke>
"A narrative which goes way beyond cowboys and Indians since in this case it's about freedom, suppression, authority, desire for immortality and fame and so on."
So, like a film about General Custer's run in with the guys at Little Big Horn then.
Re: cool to jump on the bandwagon
It tastes of aluminium. I had no idea there was a bandwagon or that I was somehow 'cool'. Also, I didn't specify pigs or any other type of animal. I simply used an expression that to most people would indicate that I thought it unfit for human consumption if not actually harmful.
...that 53 per cent of muntjac and 60 per cent of roe deer need to be wiped out instead of the previous recommendations of 30 and 20 per cent, respectively."
"...muntjac***, a "non-native invasive species"..."
Surely the correct figures then should be 100% of muntjac and possibly some other number of roe.
I thought they were calling it the Gabe Cube.
Re: quaint old thing called a 'land line'.
Did you not read the first paragraph of the article?
Bye bye femtocells
Other implications still being studied.
Re: I think I read recently that they're part owned by Sky.
Apparently they're owned by the BT Group.
Re: You've got to be kidding!
Gold drives a man to dream.
Your penultimate paragraph is right on the money. As it's unlikely music will ever be widely available as FLAC downloads, I'll be sticking with buying CDs and ripping them until the format is discontinued or I am.
...might have something to do with it.
Re: Vision - sounds too strategy-boutique
This was a vision, fresh and clear as a mountain stream.
The mind revealing itself to itself.
"...taking evidence from homeopaths"
Isn't that what the current Health Secretary DOES think we should be doing?
Re: No Dave!
Not on Freeview either if you are fed by a local relay.
So much for infallibility
Green is the colour
Maybe with jasmine sometimes. Loose if you have time to relax, bags at work or when you're in a hurry. Water just off the boil. Brew for 2-5 minutes depending on current needs. No milk. No sugar. No substitutes. No messing.
Re: It's just a penis.
Quentin, is that you?
Swift-Tuttle was in the early nineties but the one with two tails was Hale-Bopp in 1997. Hale-Bopp was a lot more impressive than Swift-Tuttle to this observer.
Re: What is the difference between royalties & licences
I'm royalty so I can do whatever the hell I want. You're not so you need a licence.
