Doesn't Special Relativity predict tachyons (superluminal neutrinos)?
I'm surprised that...
...this wonderful event hasn't been got at by the dreaded Health and Safety nazis. Mind you, I'm still amazed that building and launching your own ballistic missiles is perfectly legal, while taking a drink of water onto a plane can get you convicted of "terrorism"...
If the others have pleaded guilty, it doesn't look good for the main defendant.
To add to Duncha's comment., A Nat West bank manager I know says the cameras in cash machines usually don't work. That's why he always gets a receipt for his cash withdrawals.
What do you expect?
Half of the government is still mandating IE6!!!!!!!
Why the hell...
...are people spending serious money on these pointless devices when a paperback and pencil (for annotations) can be purchased for a couple of quid?
Shurely Shome Mishtake?
I keep seeing a TV advert that says you can go on a 15-day course. It also says the average salary is something like £36,000 "for an IT professional". Are these two facts related? I think we should be told.
Isn't this rather lazy journalism? What I mean is, how is protecting the intellectual rights of the copyright owner "Orwellian"? In Nineteen Eighty-Four, that phrase would refer to Winston Smith's job at the Ministry of Truth, re-writing history to make the pronouncements of Big Brother look like they came true.
Here we go...
Cue dozens of weak jokes about how they're all faked.
Maybe it's time...
...to vet EVERYBODY!!! The police, the cabinet... even the people carrying out the vets! Then vet the people who vetted them. And so on forever. Think of the money it'll churn around the economy! We could be out of recession by September!
Seriously, I applaud Pullman's refusal to participate in something that says by default he must want to fiddle with kids. After hearing about the levels of abuse on TV last night, such checks clearly stop nothing. They merely say people haven't been caught.
It's coming to something...
...when I side with the Daily Mail, but in my opinion too many Labour MPs are spineless jerk-offs. GROW A PAIR ALREADY AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT!
The great tragedy
Looking through the TV listings, there's absolutely nothing on to mark the 40th anniversary of arguably mankind's greatest adventure. Sure, BBC4 had a few programmes on some weeks ago, but why put them on nearly a month early?
We've already forgotten how to get there; now it looks like the programme schedulers are trying to forget it ever happened.
Ah, at last!
Why has this taken so criminally long?
What the hell...
...are banks doing using something as insecure as cloud computing?
...swapping personal details like this breaks the Data Protection Act.
If I receive a message from them, I'll be making a DPA complaint. If we all do so, we can sink the bastards and get the law tightened up.
