ECCENTRIC, PINK DWARF dubbed 'Biden' by saucy astronomers

Paul Dx

What else is out there ?

An elliptical orbit needs 2 focii.

"... allowing K-Glass wearers to check out restaurant menus and other information by standing outside and looking at the name of a particular eatery."

Rather than looking at the menu displayed in the window. Isn't technology great ?

Surely if it's an "unlicensed money transmitting business" then he's not covered by the Bank Secrecy Act ?

Do you really think that the top management would listen to the concerns of the staff at the coalface ?

Besides which, saying that the emperor has no clothes could well be career-limiting move.

There's an awful lot cables going into Oman and UAE.

Re: Good job he wasn't a diplomat

He also visited Dachau concentration camp whilst with the RAF.

Met thumbed through Oyster card data up to 22,000 times in 4 years

Paul Dx
Thumb Down

@Chris W - Get your facts right

The Met identified the wrong man as their subject and given the bombings of the previous day were very jumpy.

After the shooting the police repeated gave misleading accounts to muddy the water.

Look at the photo on this page and tell me that's a bulky coat.

Why not ban anybody under the age of 18 from accessing the web ?

Forget the meeting with David Geffen, the most pertinent part of the report is
