Lose them. Bring back the comments link. I don't want to have to search for comments on an article. Call me lazy, but I don't see what benefit it brings to me.
That gun did Bond no good at all. It was a goanna that saved his life.
The right of the people ... to keep and bear lizards ... shall not be infringed.

What bullshit! The Onion isn't as funny as it used to be, but it did use to be hilarious. "Man known as the Shark Whisperer still missing at sea."
Just change your Twitter handle. Not that big of a deal.

A Kiwi once told me about her old bicycle, which had no gears and wouldn't free-wheel.
"When I went down-hill, I couldn't stop piddling" I heard her say.

I hope they don't forget to put the rice in.
Is it still three jelly babies on a Jacob's cracker?
Just change the icon.
Not that big of a deal.

Was this train a grey tube that houses people's debts,
Their very preserves and transactions?
I know the euro has lost a lot of its value of late, but I'm sure that one million euros is worth a lot more than 817 pounds!
I respect the poster's point of view, but please consider the danger. There's going to be an ignition in the chamber and a rapid increase in pressure. If said pressure is greater than the gauge is rated for there's a risk of the gauge disintegrating explosively. That could cause injury to operators.

Password - this is true
I worked in a place where policy was to change passwords every month. The guys on the helpdesk (next to me) howled one day when a member of staff rang to complain. She'd been working in the firm for six months already, and she'd run out of words.
> at least a soupcon of a suspicion
You do know that "soupcon" means suspicion, don't you?
Break out the patio heaters!
Next up from evolution - upright, hairless, sweaty giraffes. And likewise snakes, and anything else that lives in Africa.
Best new game ever!
Pop your iFad into this wheel (or hoop) and roll it down the road, guiding it with your iStick as you run alongside. Hours of amusement for the children.

Guinness is a fiver a pint here in Dublin. Most of the other beers are around the same price.
Luis is right.
The LHC really is a weapon. It was built by the Swiss to prevent the French from invading.
But the French think they themselves built it to prevent the Swiss from invading France.
It's situated on the border so that both nations get the defense benefit.
One false move and it's Mutually Assured Custardification!
Hope this Photocontrolled Molecular Switch doesn't find its way into supplies of Bacardi Breezer or Stella Artois -- or a lot of tanning salons are going to find themselves losing customers fast.
What's the advantage of being in the same time zone as central europe? I can see little. Might be good for a few businesses, so let those businesses start work an hour earlier. It's madness to suggest the entire country has to change when only a few hundred thousand really need to.
"five-year phase of its ... planet-sniffing programme"
Is that the same as a five year mission to seek out new life and new civilisation?

@ CoonDoggy, and others
Do not feed the troll
One user rang the helpdesk to complain that there was a smell of bacon coming from under her desk. Baffled, I went down to have a look, but by the time I got there the smell had gone. The answer was never found, but the real mystery was why a smell of bacon prompted her to call technical support. Surely catering should have been first on the case?
In another company, a user rang comlaining that she had to change her password every month. She'd worked there almost a year, and she'd "run out of words."
Given NASA won't have any use for astronauts soon, isn't she just securing employment by moving on before they all get made redundant?
A glance through the history books will reveal that the Americans didn't win the war. It was the Red Army who defeated the Nazis.
