Re: Well ...
really? well, no, i did not realise that actually, you got me thinking..
branson or manson, fred west, jack the ripper, hmm, i'm stuck at 3 and they're all blokes.
some of the most prolific you say? -how come they're not so famous do you reckon?
i must be getting old
So i had a look at that gowalla site (never heard of it before) and i still can't work out what it is meant to be, it looks like some sort of online photo album, pretty sure facebook already lets you upload pics so what are they gaining?
hmm, ok then, lets go and see what the pizza shop that took your order and noted down the delivery address has to say about this lack of pizza.
raises more questions..
such as why is it made from platinum and iridium, rather than say, lead or rock?
how does it change weight? if it's in a sealed chamber it would seem there's not enough there to affect it..
that would be a nice benefit, how far could it be miniaturised i wonder.
i was looking forward to beating a few amino's into submission for the good of humanity but it looks like the site's screwed.
did you let them know you might be sending a few people their way ElReg?
you're right, i have never heard of this, what is a pledge break?
keep it simple
If they just issued a login/password with the TV license you could use it to access all the bbc services including catchup stuff, and they could be sure you were paid up then.
hmm, not really..
i glad this has happened, but i don't think you can really say thanks to the tories for it as they were forced into it, and even stated they would have appealed against it had they been able.
it's not like they did this for the good of the country, or even that they thought it was the right thing to do..
i don't want to picky about reasons at this point though.
it sounds like he was done for breaking the law, as in clocking the bus rather than ebay doing anything. at all. they pretty much admit their 'shill detection' either doesn't work, or they weren't using it, seeing as it took someone reporting the clocking to the coppers for him to be detected.
but then don't they make their money by taking a cut of the selling price? -not really in their interests to keep it low then it would seem.
as a fish keeper i'm pretty surprised it survived being chucked in the lake in the first place to be honest, you're meant to acclimate them gradually to get them used to even small variations in ph, nitrate levels etc.. chucking a bucket of tropical tank water into an english river wouldn't leave many survivors one would think.
unless they are unusually hardy fish i guess, anyone here keep any?
can't you just post a picture of it rather than these bloody videos all over the place?
not that i care that much for apple shininess but it's getting to be a bit of a habit lately on all sorts of stories.
well according to 'yes minister' it doesn't make much difference at all who's in power, so surely having no-one in power wouldn't be that much different either.
it's a big old machine, it'll just keep ticking along, i dare say there's a good chance it might even become more efficient without all the idiot leaders putting their oars in everywhere. if it's anything like my workplace.
the dangers of cheese
the one time i did it (back in the day) there was nowhere near even 5k people there, even so they were very densely packed to either side of the descent.
agreed that 45 degrees is not vertical, however it looks pretty close to it when you are at the top looking down, and it is certainly steep enough to get a fair old pace on the relatively large cheese as it rolls & bounces down the uneven slope.
shortly after my one and only descent, both of these factors combined to send the cheese careening off at a wild angle, about 3 quarters of the way down the slope, straight into the crowd & injuring some poor member of the public to the extent they also got carted off in an ambulance, along with a few contestants of course.
great day out that was.
@Stop wasting time on e-cigs
i've heard the reason they won't develop nice healthy ciggies that deliver vitamins and minerals instead of tar and nicotine, was that doing so would be tantamount to admitting the current ones are unhealthy and open themselves up to all sorts of sueing.
as to e-cigs, i have one and think it's feckin brilliant, i've used it on the plane and purely based on years of smoking experience i'm pretty damn sure it does deliver nicotine, and very well too.
it's as close to smoking as you can get without actually burning anything, throat hit & all, top stars from me. maybe he tested a crap version.
bit pedantic of me maybe, but if they must crash into each other, how do you reckon it gets up into the air?
bit pedantic of me maybe, but there's no need for egg beaters.. if they must crash into each other, how do you reckon it gets up into the air?
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
i think they should combine them, i love my books, but it would be nice to have them in digital form as well, so why not just bundle them by including a tiny bit of storage in each physical book, you could slip one of those tiny little micro sd cards in the cover or something.
you'd only need a tiny one, and they presumably allready have the text in digital form so could just dump it on the chip at minimal cost, an ebook cant take up that many meg can it?
you could still buy online direct to an ebook reader, the difference there would be that you'd get the physical book in the post later on.
i suppose some people might not want the physical book though, but consider it would be a back up of sorts if your reader breaks, you loose your account details or whatever.. just a thought.
someone has to ask.. i can't see the it angle, but surely someone can concoct one.
i was hoping to see more to this story than "someone had a shag" there's not even a funny part to it. poor effort all in all, sorry.
don't know who they are, and still wouldn't care if i did. less of this sort of unamusing tripe please.
the article specifically mentions "children's clothes", if vat's only on essentials, does that mean adults are legally allowed to walk around naked?
-i don't think that's the case, it just seemed odd that it didn't just say clothes, i would have thought they would fall into the category of essentials more than books really, no matter the age of the person wearing them..
2 tier minority?
it makes sense to give the LGBT crew more protection than the religious lot, you can't choose your sexuality as far as i know, but a bit of critical thinking would be all that's needed to straighten out the god botherers.
and if they're that convinced regardless, let their god look after them and then we'll only have one group to deal with and no need for a 2 tier system! it's win win.
i'm a bit surprised that they do actually use tank busting missiles against individuals.. although as people have pointed out, more damage is not necessarily bad depending on your point of view. it does seem like an expensive way to go about it..
they have some really fancy long range cameras nowdays, as demonstrated on various wildlife programmes, would it be feasable to add a gun to the stabilised mount & have some sort of flying sniper bot? -no collateral damage, nice and cheap..
i do like the idea of a robotic hot air balloon with a basket full of venomous snakes waiting to be released on the target's head next time they step outside though
jeeze people, you really can't see any difference between humans burning a whole planet's worth of fossil fuels & tectonic shifts??
i really hope you're both american, or being sarcastic at least..
look at it this way, you wouldn't burn a pile of tyres in your living room as it would make the air unbreathable, bar the scale, that's pretty much what we are doing to the planet's atmosphere.
(yes it's probably a bad metaphor, maybe i should go with "you wouldn't take a dump or leave all your rubbish in your own 'back yard'")
i think you misunderstand, you seem to think your opinion is more important than anyone else's, whereas i do not think it is any of your business what someone else chooses to do.
by all means feel free to refrain or indulge in whatever you like but it is not your place to permit or deny anything to anyone you selfish git.
i suppose you would have been all anti-drinking during the prohibition would you?
humpty dumpty is violent??
i take it these people must be vegans and don't eat eggs then..
and what the hell would you preview a nursery rhyme for??
why not just write a new one if you're going to change it, what a bunch of tools
i thought it was well known that the main difference between the uk and the us was that over here violence is considered to be worse than nudity & it's vice-versa in merkland.
Paris, as i'd rather shag than shoot
boo to censorship -it's neither sick nor real
oh come on you whingers, how can it be sick, unless they did actually torture people to make the film, but that would make it a snuff film wouldn't it? -or a documentary maybe. i'm not too up on the genre really.
the whole censorship seems stupid and archaic nowdays, you can't control information like you used to, and it is my belief that if people don't want to watch it because they don't like the subject matter, they won't.
it is probably a crap film though, but even saw and hostel were borderline entertainment imo, not exactly fun to watch.
