Thanks for the explanation.
Brenda is not a diminutive form of Elizabeth, but an entirely different name. So I'm rather confused.
...mustachioed, top-hatted, be-caped Tory villains will be stuffing little boys up chimneys before you can say "competitive". I exaggerate but you get the point.
...or William McGonagall
The 1970s was a period of social stagnation in the UK, when when the country saw itself as either falling apart or sliding under the heel of a new fascist boot.
Once this has gone through there might not be another election. As most have noted, Labour want this just as much as the Tories. Remember Gordon Brown's 'government of all the talents'? Seemed to me at the time that that might have been code for 'one party state'.
Two asses would indeed have two heads.
"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
I assumed they were frequently installed incorrectly, maybe with an exposed live contact.
The other stuff is annoying but not the primary reason for blocking.
...into believing they're expressing their individuality whereas in reality they are slowly adopting the uniform of S.H.A.D.O. Slinky tinfoil catsuits to be encouraged next as Cisco continues to monitor alien transmissions.
"It could be a golden or a blonde. However, judging by the lack of head it's probably not."
I do like a larger blonde with plenty of head.
"Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."
The UFO people? I really don't see why members of the United Fruitcake Outlet would be interested in astronomy.
The recent scent of joss sticks and the sound of whale-song around the offices of The Register?
I don't care about the man but, yes. Yes I do want the woman sitting next to me in the waiting room to be watching porn on the hospital wifi.
"...It is highly intrusive for this data to be retained just in case we commit a crime in the future..."
Just in case we are suspected of committing a crime surely?
That was mentioned but not explained. What would the tick box be for?
Mandatory key disclosure doesn't guarantee that a message can be read by the authorities. The penalty for non-disclosure might be significantly less onerous than that for any crime revealed to have been committed if the key is disclosed. Guess what people will do under such circumstances.
Encryption circumventing malware? Maybe.
Did anyone else first read that as Flying Low? Made me wonder about the quality of what comes out of the tap.
More on that story later. In other news: Government hopes £30billion of investment will come out of Chinese president Xi Jinping four-day state visit to UK.
So that's what Ned Flanders was talking about. Thanks for clearing it up.
@PeterGriffin. Is that your real name or did you make a conscious choice to use the name of the primary buffoon in an animated sitcom? Just asking.
They're from outer space. They just work in Iowa.
I'm looking forward to getting my backside wiped by some bitter, resentful so-and-so who thinks they ought to be a rock star. Assuming I can keep my job from robotisation long enough to be able to pay for the privilege of course.
I'd love to see a Roomba dance the Rhumba.
Security drone: Please turn on you electronic device for verification.
Suicidally inclined Ne'er do well: With pleasure.
Area alone wouldn't result in a very good approximation though. Pancakes, which those strange transatlantic types consider to be a breakfast food, can be stacked much higher than peas, which I consider to be a breakfast food.
I've seen this on several online publications today. This woman appears to assume that such devices will be produced only to satisfy the needs of heterosexual males. I suspect that models will be available for all tastes and genders (if any at all are.) For the record, I have no interest in using these things for their intended purpose if any are ever built. However I would be happy to contribute code for appropriate remuneration.
Such as Nepal, India, Pakistan, Bhutan to name but four.
There's rather more to this than clothing weight. Everyone here is happily wearing t-shirts but I'm freezing with a jumper and jacket on. As for context switching, if you are a software engineer then it's a way of life and doesn't require the help of a change of clothes.
Consent should not be assumed. Unless it was the same species as the singing bush from The Three Amigos I'd imagine the shrub was unable to give consent.
In my experience with technology companies pessimism is never unjustified.
NASA = Norfolk Area Space Agency?
So you're saying they're good cold? That sounds ideal.
But the Sonos Connect does.
But the only character who impressed me so much as a boy in the seventies that I asked my mum to cut my hair like that was Spock.
Ringing birds is best left to the RSPB.
...with Zooey Deschanel playing the Amanda Donahoe part.
Just what I was thinking. If this is deemed a success by LeicPol then it will be rolled out to the rest of Prison Island.
Downvote all you like but for those of an introverted nature this would be hell under any circumstances. There's a reason people are attracted to or repelled from certain job types you know.
I can't imagine any circumstances where that would be true.
What precisely are these failings?
You can't trust anything or anyone.
