...or maybe it won't
I was properly informed by my PCT about the proposed upload of data and promptly opted out, as did the rest of my family (surprisingly and pleasingly enough without any input from me). If enough people opt out, the project will presumably die.
They are big in Finland and have 15 million users<>they have 15 million users in Finland
Best thing since...
I've done some research (OK, Wikipedia) and have discovered that sliced bread was marketed as the best thing since wrapped bread. Can anyone give me a list (ideally in reverse chronological order) showing how the "best thing since" has changed over the last few centuries?
It was invented by some geyser.
I know, I'm leaving already...
Just one question
What is the question that is being asked?
You're not the only one
I'm not too sure how many of the blokes here have enough real-life experience to recognise real dugs when they see them.
I won't be logging back on for a month, so don't bother.
Am I reading this right?
It looks rather like the author considers 60% to be two thirds. IE market share fell below two thirds in March.
as any fule kno
Haven't seen that for years and now I can't find my copy chiz chiz.
You fail too
That isn't a problem with his grammar - it's a problem with his punctuation.
Are they recruiting grocers?
To put the apostrophe in "trainee's"?
I'm often accused of pedantry (actually, I'm just picky), but what is this meant to mean?
Google in 2008 said there's one trillion web sites putting Drupal one billion sites.
Fnarr. And fnarr again.
Re: Someone want to buy a Wii fit?
You're obviously using the wrong exercise technique. To increase the size of your wife's labido you're probably going to have to do something that involves small weights and patience, or possibly some kind of vacuum appliance. I'd Google it for you, but have Safesearch turned on.
Re: I think we've all missed the real question
Just get a Wii Fit, 'accidentally' spill butter on the board and wait.
It must ruin lots of other Wii games too. No point in playing Super Mario Kart if you always know who's going to come first.
Let's keep the US Apache pilots away from there. They might think a good solution to the clouds of ash coming from a volcanic eruption is to add some high explosive into the equation. That would sort the problem out, wouldn't it?
But when you go home you can think of all the fulmination and general arsery going on here and know that you won't have to read it. Until tomorrow.
Interesting point. I think the issue might be clouded by Ms Bee's declaration that she was going to let everything through (unless it contained some ASCII art which looked like it might depict an under-18 year old doing something naughty).
Re: oh god
If someone tried to inject me with 'synide' I'd be mortified. Literally.
Re: How about...
OK. I'm sure I'm not alone in not being down with the kids 'n' the hood and all that but what the hell is a "whitey on the gange"? Google was no help and I can't check urbandictionary at work.
Re: What is more cruel?
Well said - all you have to do is compare the murder rate in the US (death penalty - great deterrent) with, say, the wimpish UK (no death penalty and a slap on the wrist if you're lucky) and you'll see how effective your 'best deterrent' is. Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate for example and it will prove your point.
Re: Pretty futile → # ↑
But if you then join in the discussion, are you liable again? I think this is becoming a meta-discussion.
IANAL either, but I can read. If you moderate comments you may be liable, but if you don't then you're just a 'service provider' and aren't liable.
Is this a re-enactment of http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04/12/stable_address/ ? The bloke was looking at the donkey, but his mind's eye saw the woman...
For a few seconds I thought Mr and Mrs Knapp had made their garden available for use as a public toilet. One way to fill your compost bin, I suppose.
Stick it to them
They should ban the ad. That would be one in the eye for Playboy.
Re: Easy to cut down on goverment waste
The amount they spend on appointment reminders is probably saved several times over by getting just one or two percent of people to turn up at the right time to see their doctor rather than have the doctor waiting around for them. Cutting "waste" can lead to higher costs if you don't think it through. Case in point - reducing the number of tax inspectors. Lower wage bill, but as each tax inspector was bringing in much more tax than their salary, overall effect is negative.
Some of what the Conservative party puts out now seems to make sense, at least on the first reading. I can't remember who said it, but as I get older there's a part of me that's more inclined to vote Tory - a part of me I really don't like. Might have to hold my nose and vote Labour to keep them out.
Re: Escaping dressed as sheep?
Crikey - I've attracted the attention of the moderatrix. Do I get a badge or anything?
Escaping dressed as sheep?
Were the Argentinian prison guards all large and one-eyed? Please say it's so.
End credits? You mean the bit after the screen goes white?
She wasn't embarrassed by her husband watching porn. She was embarrassed by him then claiming it on expenses. Like the vast majority, I don't care if an MP's partner gets off by watching porn but but I'm blooming well not going to pay for it.
El Reg - Labour supporters?
By allowing a Tory MP to betray his ignorance in public, are we being nudged back into the arms of Labour? Not that I have any ideological aversion to that, but is there a hidden agenda?
If a threesome falls in the middle of a forest, does it make a sound?
She wants to be careful
I'm sure she doesn't want to be banged up. Oh, wait...
"soggy spotlights" - that's a new euphemism on me.
The Richard Nixon-looking mask is unblurred, while the guy with the tinfoil hat has his arm blurred. Does he have a hyper-realistic tattoo of an registration plate on his arm? Perhaps Dangermouse can supply the details.
You need a better dictionary. Mine starts with 'a' - a noun, preposition and the indefinite article.
He might have been more tempted to say "Wow, 77 fewer gas station attendants in the world"
Full stops are punctuation, not grammar, and your apostrophes are unnecessary. I should always be a capital letter.
It's always a good idea to check thoroughly when you're correcting someone's English.
Say what you like about Hitler - he wasn't actually a vegetarian. http://www.vegsource.com/berry/hitler.html tells you his favourite foods were squab and sausage.
Never thought I'd find myself correcting people's misconceptions about Hitler. Funny old world.
More Apple devices
I think we need fewer multifunction devices and more specialised gadgets. Could I have something to alert me to the presence of young women in short skirts and low-cut tops? But what to call it?

You, er, have got a Performing Rights Society licence, haven't you? You don't want to mess with them.
You missed rhythmic gymnastics and handball
Overload? Sounds like a chargeable extra.
Mine's the mac with no buttons.
Beating off the hookers
In my day it was the other way round. How times change.
Launching a probe into designer vaginas
And I thought the Colorado marijuana reviewer sounded like a dream job.
Upminster. Bangor. These names can't be a coincidence.
Aside - I remember an English lesson in the third form (Year 9 for the youngsters), when we were discussing "Under Milk Wood". Our teacher mentioned in passing that there was quite a bit of inbreeding on Anglesey before the Menai Bridge was built as, in his words, "people couldn't get across to Bangor very often." To this day I don't know if that was deliberate. Mr Johnson - if you're reading, please put me out of my misery.
There's the Smellietubbies: Stinky Winky, Woopsie, Fart fart and Poo.
Well my 5 year old laughed.
Mine's the brightly coloured one with the TV screen on the tummy.
You've done that particular play on words quite recently - can we have a bit of variety please? Do Swedes refer to a large built-up area in the wilderness to a big spread in the bush? That should give you something to get you going.
It's also a shame you didn't give a link to the area on Google Earth. As this sounds like the ultimate seat of female pleasure, you need to give us blokes an awful lot of assistance in finding it. Drawing a map would be a good start.
I'm sure the lovelies in Sweden will appreciate a thumbs-up.
