What he said plus one
The SAFETY switch was disabled????
Remind me never to fly in a Pratchett airliner!!
PS Well done anyway!
The pilot in the glider cockpit (Martin) is holding the joystick with his left hand. Martin in the picture is holding the tankard in his right hand but..it's a left-handed tankard!
This confuses me so I would be grateful to El Reg and friends to correct or explain this om nom nom anomaly please.
English Sparrows? You mean just sparrows. Why English? And if, indeed, there are English Sparrows flying around other than in England, please don't shoot them, send old Papageno around and bring 'em back home.
Anyway, why are English sparrows considered pests? What do they do?
Well certainly after a good belching from the insides, there will be a sedimentary wet bottom, and it's understandable that bits will be clinging on. Hence of course, the extra strong winds of Mars will help whistle through the vitals and cleanse said debris away.
Now that ain't rocket science either, or is that eether? Whatever, sigh..I'll leave quietly now before anyone comments.
Now THAT's a number to conjure with!
I wish "boffins" would spend less time thinking about how stars end their lives and more time on calculating how many "people" on planets affected by the supernova die.
We really ought to get some sort of Relief Aid going and help those poor folks.
You sound a bit "annally retentive" to me.
I bought Android so I could AVOID iTunes. Why on earth would I want to run anything iOS related?
The firm is quite right, their product will be the first beverage on the moon because, as we all know, and the drinks firm knows, nobody has yet landed there and walked on it.
Can't be bothered with the obligatory Wiki conspiracy links.
Where does Curiosity keep the cones, metal rods and bits of red plastic telling pedestrians to "use the other footway"? I've looked carefully at the pix of the machine and I just cannot see how they fit on it.
And how does the Council worker get there, where is he/she hiding?
"There I was digging this 'ole
'ole in the ground,
square and sort of round it was...."
When up came a bloke in a bowler...
"You can't dig there, dig it elsewhere,
you're digging it round and it orta be square.."
Always wondered how Bernard Cribbins could see into the future; now I know!
it"s "but still they come", NOT "they still come".
And it"s LASERS not LAZERS.
That's a score of 2 to me and 0 to you. I am now in an unassailable position as we have run out of time.
Yeah thanks guys for setting a precedent that everyone from Steve Jobs to even the most sedate and boring sysadmin now expects programmers (and fixers) to be available all bloody night.
Example: Work 60 hours plus on a failing network in Birmingham. Take a well-earned break for a couple of days back home 200 miles away, drive early on Sunday morning to see the kids for once. Halfway home get a call to say something else has gone wrong, "and if you don't come back right now, don't bother coming back at all".
Such happy days.
Still, I love my job, innit.
It's a Union flag!
how many times more...??
Let's hope some enterprising airline pays meeellions for the wonderful livery.
Is everyone writing English here or is this another new hybrid language?
Confoosed (not difficult)
Whacko, 'cos I need a good caning.
Those flairy fings prolly explain the hot flushes I get. That last "whoosh" was particularly big 'cos 8½ minutes later I had a hot flush. At least I now know not to trust my GP. Menopause indeed; solar flairs frying me vitals more like!
I thought in spaaaace, there was no atmosphere hence no lens flare? Someone please correct me if I am wrong. It's doin' me head in!
I was very careful NOT to tweet (oh dear that's a noun (sorta) becoming a verb far too quickly and without the benefit of 200+ years of Oxford Professors humming and hawing over it.
I put the comments on El Reg, of course, because no self respecting plod would bother to look at it, being a bit erudite and out of their league.
Gotta run now, there's this rather loud knock at my door...
"as the BBC says.."
that'll be supernovae then.
Someone should go in there and mangle them before I do!
Those are, of course, the Dune sandworms on their annual migration South.
I know...sigh..I'll get me coat as it's Friday.
I for one welcome our SRA overlords "knowingly splitting infinities" where no lawyers should have gone before - not if they've been educated proppa anyways!
Whilst I hate evil megalomaniacal firms as much as the next person, I have to say that there are 3 reasons why I recommend Sky - at least for me.
1. I live in an area of piss-poor TV reception, but with my SKY box I get perfect pictures everytime and a built-in record facility to save faffing around with video etc (yes, I have still got a video).
2. SKY broadband has proven to be ultra-reliable and considtent with good customer support (actually I only used it once and the girl at the other end knew what she was talking about)
3. The SKY + Phone package costs peanuts compared to some
4. The unlimited broadband option IS truly unlimited (handy for those pesky Linux distros)
Yes I know that's 4 but who's counting?
So say what you will about Murdoch - his firm delivers and, without it, I'd be kaboozled!
Just my tuppen'orth.
What a load of twaddle! It's stating the bleedin' obvious that those are landing lights coming from a rather dusty spaceship and not a comet at all.
I dunno, blinkin' scientists! What do they know eh?
I for one welcome our great white overlords.
Mind you, having been to Newquay, I can say for certain that from what I've seen, the surfers there are far from innocent!
Actually I'm more worried about their fundamentalist, religous fanaticism! Wars have been started over this.
Special relationship? Keep it, I'll take my chance with the French - at least we can keep them under control with our archers.
Paris - because, no doubt, her French is exemplary..
I for one welcome our Cornish Lesbian Overlords...hmm. Don't think I've quite got that right.
Ah well, nice try.
