What about fat?
A good burger needs a certain amount of fat to make it really delicious.
Here in Canada
Hab fans are to be looked down upon, denigrated and ridiculed - especially when they lose to the beloved Leafs.
There are pictures of the crime circulating - one of the reasons she felt persecuted. If the rapists faces are in any of the pictures, or if they are identifiable through the pictures, and the crown still didn't proceed then something is wrong. It is ultimately the crown who decides whether or not to proceed with charges. If the mounties didn't do their job properly then the blames lies with them.
I laughed at how the Americans are portrayed in the video and - oh noes - the secret formula for coke!
What did that critter evolve from - thin air? There had to be something a little bit less mammalian for that to evolve from - maybe some kind of monotreme-like critter.
Those GoPro cameras are fantastic
They're everywhere today.
They don't seem to have taken into account the head movement that usually accompanies vomiting - straight out, followed by a downward arcing spew, ending at the feet. Also, what about consistency, watery or chunky? How can we take this research seriously? Keyboard for, well, you know.
Lets you send a phone message from Santa. Have fun.
I for one
welcome our new robotic arm controlling cyborg overlords.
Perhaps if he had performed the contracted work in a timely and professional manner he wouldn't have gotten a bad review. Maybe if he had attempted to make things right with his client, she wouldn't have raked him over the coals online. However, I don't want to just say everything is his fault because I know from personal experience that you just can't please some people. She may have kept adding more work or changes to the original contract and didn't want to pay anything extra for it.
If you don't support gay marriage this could happen.
Well, looks like the Underpants Gnomes have figured out step 2.
ha ha. stoopid prof don't no sheet from shinola. of coarse peeps is smarter now.

You forgot to mention that the Liberal party under Jean Chretien signed the Kyoto Accord and then did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to meet Canada's goals under the accord - for 8 years. Don't try to blame Harper for the failure of Kyoto in Canada, put the blame where it really lies - at the feet of Canada's Liberal Party. Canadians want to look after the environment, but not at the expense of impoverishing ourselves.
Be sure to show pics of the statement, when it arrives, for us folks on the left of the Atlantic.
Is Shit his family name or his given name. Don't the Chinese put the surname first? If that is the case then there must be plenty of Shits in China, probably plenty of little Shits too. Maybe there is a monk in the family, addressed as Holy Shit no doubt. That ought to get you started.
Even if it is from Curiosity, it would still be part of an alien craft.
A Dyson sphere
Would be at the radius of the originating planet (ours would have a radius of 93 million miles). It would allow 100% energy conversion. If our technology couldn't handle that much energy it could be radiated into space by heat sinks. My problem is that any civilization that could construct a Dyson sphere - why would they want to? If you control enough energy to construct a Dyson sphere, then you don't really need one. That would be the kind of thing that might happen in an entropic universe at the end of its life. To address one more of the previous points, there is a possibility that we are the first intelligent species to arise in our galaxy - note that I said first, not only. If we were the only, then maybe there is a ?deity. If we are the first, then we should set an example by not spewing the waste products that pass for entertainment, all over the galaxy. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to make another rye and coke (and my buddy seems to be doing something with some cigarette papers).
They are only less balanced
If you are on the side of the warming people. In other news, skeptics find climate reports by mainstream media biased. I'm firmly in the "not convinced yet, but willing to listen" camp. I'd probably go with the "humans are bad" group if 54 years on this planet hadn't made me cynical. Young people have too much respect for "scientists" who are all too willing to get their name in the paper. These "scientists" aren't any smarter than me, just have different disciplines. Politicians have actually gone to the well one time too many for me and I absolutely won't support any "carbon" plan that costs me more money - I don't have any more I can spare.
God I hate that phoney corporate team crap.
Tax law is too complex
The complexity makes it easier for people or corporations with large incomes to pussyfoot around, hiding things here, deferring things there, claiming bogus losses/depreciations etc., which enables them to pay tax rates that are utterly ridiculous. For example, in 2011 Western Digital Corp. paid $40 million in taxes on $2,507 million income - an effective rate of 1.6%! It sure seems to me that most tax systems are designed to let wealthy people and corporations keep their money while squeezing more and more from you and me. I guess this has pushed me into supporting a flat tax system. By the way, watch who complains the most whenever a flat tax is brought up, its usually the same people who are making out like bandits under the current system.
No worries here
Perhaps the Yanks will need a reminder of what happened the last time they tried to invade us.
Now I'm interested in installing Windows 8, but you have to wonder, when will an "update" come done the pipe to disable it.
Windows (h)8 violates over 100 patents held by me! So anyone wishing to run Windows (h)8 can just send me $1000.00 and I promise not to sue you.
Do you still have to pay the tax if you watch some other country's feed over the internet - not the BBC's?
But the cleaner (less pollutants) atmosphere has nothing to do with reduced toxins in the system?
includes forcing old people to work till they drop, forced sterilization and 20th century technology!
Hooray for the future!
"Applications of these stupidly high-resolution femtosecond lasers include the study of biological cell structures and chemical reactions."
And useful in thwarting alien hordes as their ships approach Earth.
It makes me laugh...
...when I read the posts calling for Lewis' head. The commentards who do this display such a stunning, blinkered, faith-based belief in their world view that it would make a southern Evangelical Christian blush. I know the climate is changing, I know the climate has always been changing. I SUSPECT that mankind may be contributing somewhat to these changes, but I don't KNOW that for certain, and neither do YOU. The real "climate deniers" are people who absolutely refuse to believe that we may not have all the answers or believe that we should simply stop asking questions. This type of single minded "groupthink" merely demonstrates how utterly close-minded they are.
Maybe this is a "new Coke/old Coke" strategy. Make such a reviled product that people clamor for the original and flock back in even greater numbers when the "new Coke" is axed and production resumes on the "old Coke".
We've honoured heroic humans and animals with plaques, maybe its time we honoured these 2 little rovers with something similar. I realize I'm anthropomorphising the rovers and that it would really be a tribute to the engineers and operators, but I think we should in someway commemorate them.
How about getting 2 aircraft built instead of one. Setup the entire launch gizmo/whatsits in a suspended configuration like it would be at altitude and do some test launches. This would confirm or completely destroy your theories for launch atitude.
I just got an image
of a wild-haired mad scientist type twiddling knobs on a large machine, with gauges and dials wildly fluctuating, to the sound of great dynamos winding up, all bathed in a pulsating green glow.
"Power", he cries, "we must boost the power!"
I for one
welcome our new self driving robotic automotive overlords. Do they come with an annoying tendency to honk if you're a microsecond late pulling away on the green?
The problem I have is that the death penalty should only be used in cases of serial or mass murder where guilt is 100 percent certain - not plain old murder where one person kills one other person (even in cold blood). Also, I'm curious about the cost of someone fighting a life sentence for years versus someone fighting the death penalty for years - is there much of a difference?
