That structure is invested with 'double helices'.. !!£$%*&"!!!!11
I will just go stroke my white fluffy one.
If the penguin is a gentleman, the lady will come first....
You cum together.
The Lady has multiple cums then claims thirst, rolls over and keeps you awake on the wet patch with her impression of a road drill until the wet patch dries out and then shunts you into the corner of the bed and robs the quilt.
Is this bad doo-doos?

Spring the GeoCities wing from the Asylum during his latest escape?
NO!!!1!!! I want to repair my Dildo. ARGHH ARGHH ARGHH.
Oh, perhaps someone else got more targeted results. Blush.
Apparently, sometime in the past, the BA got equipped with shit rifles.
Presumably they have similar issues in fantasy land and this time 'The Dark Side' engineered 'The Light Sabre of Imposed Choice'.
"FFS, this is a teaser for a movie that's still in production and won't be released for another year!!! I've read so much anti-this and anti-that about this title already and it's not even finished. FFS please stop this BS speculation. When the flick is finally released then everyone can express their opinions. Until then, naysayers please SHUT THE FUCK UP!"
Ah. I see your point.
What you are saying is they have run out of ideas so they are floating rubbish in the hope of crowd sourcing criticism in order to make things better.
Presumably this works if everyone chooses to STFU and let them get on with it.
Is the glimpsed species good at sucking knob? Perhaps it evolved from the fleshlight.
As an aside I have to agree the new light sabre appears to be a bit of rubbish. Not being up to steam on Samurai stuff but it does seem waving it about will end up with severed wrists and trying to chop someone's head off will lose you your legs, at the torso if your opponent is short.
Perhaps it comes with sensors that switch off the useless bits when they are about to chop you up. Perhaps all will become clear in the fight choreography.
In respect of the robot.. Segway.
Assuming the 'video' is a screenshot of the bloke who is having his hair go all 'spikey' due to static charge why is the commentator flicking his arrow thing about background objects such as the roof of a car parked to the rear left and what might be the porch above a door entrance behind the bloke?
Don't suppose that would fit the bottle cage of a push bike.. And while I'm at it,
Any specs, lifetime for rechargeable batteries and possible flash modes. Also any mounting hardware for handlebars and have you got similar in red for the rear?
To make the glass so strong the Corning team drew inspiration from 17th Century Dutch glassmakers who discovered a technique for making super-strong glass called Dutch Tears, or Prince Rupert's Drops.

The local council switches off the local street lights so the robbers can rob stuff but we can gaze better into the dark but the weather man taketh it away with his clouds and fog and shit.
No doubt in the cold light of tomorrow, when the sun wakes up.. but not for Phil, I shall put a foot out of the bed and be welcomed to the intense cold of a clear sky.. or fog.
Perhaps I should press 9 next time someone autodials me and suggests .gov is going to pay for my solar panels.

Hmm.. Thanks for the Hi-Res. Notice to the bottom right there appears to have been something similar to a surface melt that might have re-frozen.... and there appears to be a bit of string poking out of it that is also coated in whatever melted.
Soup Dragon indeed..
Blue String Pudding!!!

They are the interplanetary equivalent of frozen home deliveries for Clangers.
Another great day as Science answers the mysteries of the Universe.
Yoiks. I dragged that one into Gimp. Cropped to the relevant area and selected the 'colourise' tool, first time I have ever used it, and the default settings came up with this,
Proof positive if it were needed.
This 125mph train is fitted with LASERS.
Oh.. silly me. That's Zuck standing on the platform pointing to the 125mph train fitted with lasers, to his right. Not Zuck being a 125mph train or fitted with lasers...
Either that or he is not very good at Charades.
This was part of the whatever % free time the Chocolate Factory gives to its Choclateers in an effort to stuff Ferrero Rocher, who are responsible for Nutella but do not make Hershey Bars. Deep fried Mars Bars and where Pop Stars might put them, deep fried or otherwise... ERM.
I think you will find that Google has "Fuck You Money", "Stuff You Money", "Don't Care Money", "Not Bothered Money", "Loads'a Money", bosh bosh, and spare left over for the Lobbyists, Lawyers and Politicians.
Obviously all paid for by 'you'... AKA "All Your Money".
"I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
..and "Money Left Over", although the magazine will not be as questionably empty and self reloads by 'crossing the streams'.
Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Spengler: Try to imagine all of your money getting sucked out of your wallet and used against you.
Stantz: Total wallet suckage with repercussions?.
Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
Stantz: Whoa! Does that include my Moths?
Spengler: And the wallet.
Stantz: What else?
Venkman: Who else knows about this Egon?
Spengler: Only me. I did a search on Google.
Stantz: Venkman: Oh Crap!!

Point taken re EMI however it can be controlled/ameliorated. Just a matter of knowing what you are doing rather than, tongue in cheek, slapping things together on S-DEC and watching them blow up..
You will find that most avionics kit is stuffed full of SMPS and indeed El-Reg are using the above to buck things down from a higher input voltage by putting their batteries in series. Of course I do not know what Castle have Created but I might assume a bit of blue heat shrink and potting compound does not look like a solution to EMI.
One thing I do know is that a 'raw' buck converter hammers the input source with a square wave current draw unless you provide further input filtering...
That will be the capacitor on the input side. Mr wet finger would probably conclude it is 'just enough' to get away with things.
which knobs on your loop compensation so you may as well put the batteries in parallel and use a boost converter with low input ripple current to generate the higher output voltage prior to bucking it down and independently redistributing it according to requirements.
<bullshit mode fully on>
Batteries are happier in parallel. Synchronous buck will return/recover power back to the input boost stage output which will/should take care of any load dump from the inductiveness of the servos... assuming that is a problem.

<missing closing tag>
"You may need to consider something a little more sophisticated..."
Probably not enough time for the sub-space jockeys but it might be interesting from a general perspective to do something for the 'collective community' which might avoid the "Ooops bugger, let's put a 'battery eliminator' in there. Oooops bugger." mentality.
I might mention that the graphs as presented make no sense to me and otherwise power processing is *hard*.
I would be inclined to implement a parallel low voltage battery pack, with sufficient voltage on the ground, to start up a..
UCC1803 for MIL SPEC
and implement a boost converter which will be 'gentle' on the batteries in terms of ripple current and once started will keep itself supplied from the output via devious means even if the batteries drop below UVLO.
Having boosted up to a 'suitable' voltage, 24V?, with your, dirt slow control loop, boost converter into a storage capacitor you then use, monster fast control loop, generic multiple synchronous buck converters to deliver the power at the required voltages elsewhere.
The output capacitors, assuming you use the right ones, will sniff at the spikes and should your load decide to take a dump it will be returned back to the boost converters output capacitor and recycled elsewhere.
"Not even with honey..."
Maybe Google can ask someone to spend a bit of their spare 'Google Time' putting that one in the sachet for suitable reconstitution during the 'add boiled water' phase.
It was a silly thought.
"Hi, you might like to consider the problem of LemSip not including Honey for your next 'freetime project'"
"Brin! Yeah Brin! I'll Hadoop it Right Away. Might Need Some More Big Data."
In news elsewhere please visit an NHS, or related, website and note that Google *is* *on* **
LarryPage** and has still not cured influenza.
Is this Google's Giggle to a, cold, Northern Hemisphere response or does Flu break out *all over* the World about this time of year and if it does why?
Apparently Google has *Big Data* but are incapable of doing much with it beyond advertising LemSip.
Oh... That will be it. Google also wants access to my medical records... to recommend Blackberry Flavour LemSip.
Does Elon Musk own a Yacht?
Have an up-vote for STEMscript. I would suggest great minds think alike but you might become extremely worried.
Looking at the picture of the mechanical/robot snake that what is happening is the lower point of contact of the top bend is pushing the sand back to form a hump and support forward motion whilst the upper point of contact of the bottom bend is holding the sand forming that hump in place keeping it stable in excess of what would be 'close to the angle of maximum slope stability' to enable the overall solution to work at that angle. I might speculate that a sidewinder in motion can traverse a slope that is greater than one it might be able to remain stationary on.
I would hazard a guess that these baldies if not truly bald actually have very short hair around their ears or a very short hair cut overall. As a result the hair is stiff and able to penetrate any gap in order to get caught and pulled out. Of course this does not detract from the fact that the problem did not exist before and therefore it is a design fault by Apple and they should be lambasted for it. I believe Mr Jobs had a short haircut so this would not have happened if he was still about. Could be time for a new style rubber bumper that covers the gap.
Meh..? Obviously I am dumb but doesn't 'update manager', or some other bit of tut, moan at people to update bits such as this or is the article suggesting 'Fortune 1000 Overlords' ignore such advice until they crap a load of someone else's money over to crooks, themselves, and then pay themselves bigger bonuses?
On another Planet, in another Sol type system in another Galaxy far far far away.
"Five minutes of data collected."
"Run the predictor."

"Chances of recovery?"
"Insignificant within their time scale."
"Chances of recovery with intervention?"
"Sigh. Move on to the next target."
Hmm.. something like a B52 launching an X15... but sort of in reverse? Sling the paper plane under rocket powered one and cut it free when the rocket powered one has finished its launch/boost phase to maximum altitude.
Mine will be the one that connects via the 'land line' and has its ring switched off.
Apparently beer works whereas coffee does not.
Please do let me know how it goes with more coffee.
If it still does not make sense after more coffee then I assume we can conclude that more coffee is not the solution to the sense you were seeking in the first place.
Or perhaps my logic is flawed.
IIRC El Reg published an article about someone discussing -40F as being -40C and having to check themselves.
Have Energizer got a
dirtydata shitsheet that details performance down at that temperature and 10 degrees below?
IIRC Arrhenius, may not apply, says 10 degrees halves performance.
Or.... Will Energizer get involved and help out with a solution, and perhaps a bit of cash, cough cough?
Hmm, no mention of the Rabbit Dildo.
Errr... Elsewhere it would seem you have a battery pack on the main launch platform to keep the rocket motor toasty. Floating a misshaped turd and going bang for buck/weight is there not some chymical method of keeping the internals warm?
Mumble. I believe it is some sort of two part goo that gets hot when you mix it. Not sure about how long it lasts.
Don't forget 'conformal coating'.
Blah Blah Blah.
Silly as it may seem, and I am not known to be particularly intelligent, I would assume that Google does not 'know' the passwords... salted cashews and such stuff. If they did download the file then in order to check for compromised accounts they would have to use the information to see if they could log in to the accounts and that might put them on the wrong side of the law. Of course assuming these are accounts that Google regularly sniffs the data from to spaff adverts at people then things possibly become even sillier. Anyway, as suggested, they might find themselves charged with doing something nefarious. Errr, pass the paracetamol.
Bit of a typo. The author obviously meant 2112.
"What can this strange device be?
When I touch it I get adverts for stuff I bought yesterday...."
Anyone for Phorm?
Like 'Sure, Right.'
The Chinese are going to let Phorm install DPI kit with Phorm Written and Maintained Software in their networks in order to intercept communications.
Damn these genetically modified orange, purple and pink striped flying elephants. I will have to get my XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL large butterfly net out again.
Presumably the new site will be implemented with HTTPS and include Google Analytics along with a plethora of other trackers including but not exclusive FaceAche, Twatter and Gibber + buttons.. Plus people will get the opportunity to pay via
EBAY PayPal and comment on the service via Disqus. Thus gifting all data about Fire Arm owners in the UK to the US Whilst improving your Fire Arm Browsing experience. Complaints will be ignored until you moan on Twatter and then any issues raised will be ignored. The associated site will not be targeted for SQL injection or other attacks by 'subversives' in search of easily liftable weaponry and munitions and when 'the database' gets powned the ICO will descend on them like flies on shit because it means they can look good by fining The Taxpayer.. again..

You are wrong.
I recently switched off my 'defences' in order to 'experiment' elsewhere and was 'targeted', presumably for advertising.
Within an instant all my searches turned to someone else's incorrect guesses as to what I might be looking for.
WHAT THE FUCKING SHIT ARE YOU FUCKING BLITHERING ON ABOUT!!!1!!!
Normal service was resumed having switched my defences back on with a clean browser restart.
"The *documents* submitted by the company to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) describe a device which uses a flexible screen capable of being bent around the corners of the casing."
I mean.. there might be some 'sensible' Americans about on Reg but Apple and the American Patent System goes beyond the pale.
Patents are not a pre-emptive guess or 'what if wet' dream based on what you think others might be working on and possibly vaguely realising or stuff that is already known. It should be 'provable and likely to be deliverable tech' by yourselves.
United States Patent Application 20140078240290
"We envisage a nuclear fusion machine for an initial trip to Alpha Centauri based on guesses about what everyone else is doing extrapolated to their possible success in order to sue them in a USofA court some time in the future because we did fuck all but they stole our dreams off of us.
Our invention will now be described with reference to Figure 1)
Figure 1) demonstrates a nuclear fusion machine with curved corners, in this case provisioned as a propulsion device for an initial trip to Alpha Centauri. a), haptics b), oled displays and c).1-4), leds are curved around the corners. We will work out how to do that shit once someone else implements it.
Figure 2) demonstrates some other made up bollocks we dreamed up and will rely on someone else implementing it first because it seems possible they might do so and then we can rape them in a US court.
Figure 3) demonstrates some other made up bollocks we dreamed up and will rely on someone else implementing it first because it seems possible they might do so and then we can rape them in a US court.
Figure 4) demonstrates some other made up bollocks we dreamed up and will rely on someone else implementing it first because it seems possible they might do so and then we can rape them in a US court.
Figure n) demonstrates some other made up bollocks we dreamed up and will rely on someone else implementing it first because it seems possible they might do so and then we can rape them in a US court.
As will be apparent to 'those skilled in the art' your arse is now ours in respect of Nuclear Fusion Machines for an initial trip to Alpha Centauri and Kettles including other Nuclear Fusion stuff plus all other tech or normal daily stuff already in existence or you may be thinking about improving and anything else.
All Prior Art, and everything else prior and in the future, is ours.. Sucks to be you"
Meanwhile 'American Chopper' is having a Barney over how to bend Ghost Riders latest set of 'down pipes'..
"No Seriously Man. You have to let me weld them from square steel sections with square corners."
"No Shit! Why have I got these pipe benders!?
"Sir, you really need to trust me on this one."
"Get out of here. You Are Fired."
"Hello.. Is my Motorcycle finished?"
"Just fitting the last piece Mr Ghost Rider."
"Hello.. You have been served."
"What The Fuck! is this Mr Suit?"
"I would advise you take legal advice in respect of my client's previous claim of all things curved. This Motorcycle is now Impounded."
"It's my Motorcycle!"
"Perhaps you should take legal advice as well Sir."
"It's my Motorcycle. Bought and paid for. Look into my eyes."

I'm surprised the Cuerpo Nacional de Policía did not wander up and say '"'ello, 'ello, 'ello" and drag your Begging Boffin off to the cells for vagrancy and a quiet rubber truncheoning.
Assuming Mr Haines has been used as the template to 're-circle the circle' you should be good to go, I humbly apologise.
In respect of an implied, my interpretation, suggestion elsewhere regarding pregnant ladies although that might have been my own illusion, presumably the logo will be subject to relocation and re-cicularisation in order to cover the nascent ballocketnauts bump.
Of course given women come with two jubs, and I realise blokes have two as well but err... There is the opportunity to include both EU and USA logos in the appropriate positions with the required re-circulisation, and three to accommodate pregnant ladies.
Of course given the introduction of ladies to the equation of Lohan Haute Couture a restriction to Small, Medium, Fat Bastard and Extra Fat Bastard might introduce unsolvable mathematical equations to the impossible solution.
Extra Research via online lingerie catalogues might be required.
I am surprised I have, as yet, made no spellling mistakes. Oh silly me, spurl checker not switched on. I shall now write a stiff letter to the OED to get them to sort their act out.
I might have thought it was his problem to sort this out with more bikes. Is this why he is attempting to abdicate to Parliament?
Still I suppose having zombie cab drivers in London is not much of a problem given they will only be transporting London Zombies.
I now see the reasoning behind 'Perimter M25'.

MiniPower had elected to install the wrong sort of metering devices and could no longer 'load balance' matters. This of course in 'real terms' as applied to others would not matter. The concern, if there would have been one in one respect, is that people might notice having their usage of power rescheduled at such a large scale. People 'expected' their, luke warm, Victory Coffee at certain times during the day, give or take. Of course the later arrival of left shoes in respect of ordering the right assuming either arrived in the first place was not of much concern. This time shoe delivery would be suspended for all. Even the TeleScreens stopped working. More importantly The Ministries, without power, ceased to function.
Winston turned to see a man he did not recognise. Short, large head with a Vapid Smile dressed in a manner that suggested someone from a higher party echelon.
"We have a special job for you."
"Nothing seems to be working at the moment Sir."
"Yes, we know but you are highly recommended so we can work around that and get you up and running on this station."
The Vapid Smile handed over a large envelope.
"We need it in about an hour Winston. People need to know the truth here. I know we can trust you."
He paused and placed a box on Winstons desk then left.
Winston opened the envelope. A history of someone called Adam Afriyie. Someone who needed to become an unperson.
Winston looked at the box. It was wrapped in cellophane, black and proudly announced JSP 10 in Gold lettering.
Winston set to work under the failing emergency lighting. Within the prescibed hour he was finished and then the lights failed. He fell asleep and was woken again three hours later.
Startled but looking left and right all the other stations were in darkness. He spoke into the microphone to deliver his report of 'the truth'. Adam Afriyie, and others, became unpersons.
He looked at the JSP box.
"Are they real Sir?"
"Yes, but you do not really want one... not after... Look, I've got a torch with some batteries in it. Let's get you out of the building so you can walk yourself home. Apparently there is smoglight outside.
mumble mumble mumble does it take to hack a light bulb?
