Plenty of runways are over 400' long. This thing should be able to take off going across rather than along.
I really am a Jedi
No, really I am but what can I do? I get lumped in with hundreds of pasty wimps that don't represent my views at all. I think I'll tick Jew since it contains some similar letters and circumcision hurts like having a mishap with a light sabre.
Surely they already have your bank details, phone number, address and email or have I missed the launch of a new PAYG ADSL service?
Even dial-up only works on a paid for phone line and kids can't rent them either.
Linus not giving to charity
OK so maybe no money, but he's given away everything he's ever written to everyone. He's probably the reason that Microsoft has cut the prices it charges to poor nations for its software. I think that counts as helping the world. BillG has given away 100% of his output? I don't think so.
You're 1.96m tall and 120kg, you are confronted by a herd of 1.5m tall and high teenagers. I suggest you pick one up and dangle it over the edge, that should calm the others down. If it doesn't simply drop the first one and move on to the next.
You know you're delaing with a really cross idiot
When they end a sentence with ". Period. Full stop." unless that's Microsoft's dodgy internationalization software at work.
I laugh at your puny attempts to defy me
and then reach for the right sized flat-blade and small hammer.
Yes I do, and it works. Most screws are soft enough that you can wedge a sharp blade in and then undo and replace with something nicer.
This is what you get from style boutiques
All your logos are belong to the swirl. And they all look alike and have nothing to do with your company. If SonyEricsson's logo was an imaginative blend of S and E this would not have happened and it might be more recognized.
Surely all those 30000 people are on the database and so their name and address have been verified. Just post a cheque for £30 to each one. job done for less than £1m
WW means world wide
There's a difference between the internet and the www. the world wide web is the killer app that made the internet popular. I'm sure these platform specific closed apps look attractive to media publishing companies because they enable more control than the www but they also lack the world-wide aspect.
What next? Some bright spark comes up with cross platform apps?
Getting in was easy
It simply pressed the cdrom button, jumped on board and went for a ride.
Once inside it realized it had forgotten the USB to serial port adapter so it couldn't log in with it's smartphone.
Once it had finished eating all the bugs and spiders inside it croaked.
How is this going to hurt Simon Cowell?
The X-factor single won't sell any less, the customers are completely separate. Who knows? the X-factor single may sell even more since the fans might be annoyed at the annoyed-at-X-Factor brigade.
Mind you it's probably going to be the best work from Billy Brag and Pete Doherty ever!
Freeview and Freesat on channels 108 and 50, respectively!!!
I hope their upscaler is not the same as ITV's. My TV does a better job of suppressing the deinterlacing artefacts than theirs.
Can't wait for Strictly in HD, SD Freeview does very badly when the camera whizzes at the same time as the lighting is going mad.
Happens to lots of people
Get over it.
Ejected for failing to know how to play naughts and crosses.
$75k puts you comfortably in the top end so it's not surprising that you're happy. Beyond that and you probably don't mix with enough poor people to stay grounded.
Can we have a "well, duh" icon?
Not thought this through have you?
The smelliest people don't own irons.
Re: Ten times more light
3D TV glasses do cut out some light so brighter lights will enable you to keep them on when you make a cup of tea. Plus any fule kno wearing sunglasses indoors is cool.
WTF is bestshore?
I can only guess it's what happens to your jobs when, not only are the people in India cheaper than you, they are better too.
Review Fail! - Can't go smaller
Of course they can, the limiting factor is the USB connector (there's room in there to put the chips). You will have to remember to tie a piece of string to it if you don't want to use pliers to extract it though (just like certain products for women)
Stand on one leg!
Waste of space. Your height does not change so all you need to remember is your weight to get your BMI. And your weight doesn't change much so remembering is easy. (Hint - it's probably the same as yesterday or maybe a bit more, never less). Once you move to remembering your weight you can type that in to any number of free computer/internet/iphone programs to track your increasing weight. Then you only need a cheap pair of analogue scales that don't require you to log in by hopping your user id in morse.
Alternatively jump up and down naked in front of a close friend and ask them if you wobble in the wrong places.
Antiques roadshow 2110
or flogging off as fake id.
I'm guessing that the email will go to a server somewhere and the printer will poll it for print jobs. I don't want my print jobs being stored on someone else's servers and I don't want my printer to be open to anyone that can guess an email address.
Tell us more
How do you use MythTV to watch Freeview HD?
$1bn / 9000 is..
~$111k - quite a generous redundancy package on average.
Best way to give to charity is time or cash to a local charity. Time is better.
Don't do this just because you hate Microsoft. They get more publicity from every pound raised. And every pound raised costs them 50p (tax deductible). Just donate £1 to your own beer fund - you will feel better.
Warnings on the screen?
How is that supposed to work then? It's only the kids that can work this technology in most families.
I know it's going to be expensive but the VOD companies are going to have to either restrict all ads to be suitable for children or stitch in adverts to the stream based on the time of day (at the receiving end).
Immobilisers might be a better application
Just have the immobiliser tag on you keyring and it will be near enough when you insert the ignition key to work. Better than fumbling in the dark for the place to insert the magic doobrey.
Speaking of which, if I'm in a restaurant I'll be concentrating on loosening the knickers of the other person and not wanting to edit my playlist or roast my dog.
Humans are much better
Bedroom shame indeed! (not the first time you've heard that phrase I guess)
You call that clean? For that amount of money you can get at least 40 hours of cleaning time from a human, probably enough for you flat for a year, which is probably longer than that robot will last. Or you could just do it yourself
Re: Propane is very similar to methane chemically
I suspect you were sleeping during chemistry, they're about as similar as oxygen and chlorine are, just a few numbers. And please don't try to distil your own whisky.
