Re: Choosy mothers chose JIF
Lucky you, Daniel. My GF and her kids like JIF.
Re: It's Pronounced Pittsburra, Pennsylvania
What about "Hen3ry"? I seem to recall Mr. Lehrer saying that the "3" was silent.
Re: Pronouncing acronyms
So, how would you pronounce Colorado?
Re: What a joke...does money grow on trees?
It is possible that the positive effect on the GDP is actually greater when people use unlicensed software and spend their money on products with longer supply chains.
Re: Hosing down everything with cgi gets you very little
I agree, Alan 6.
Re: "proposals that would see one car radio another to tell it when heavy braking is required"
the problem with refills
Is that I don't think my significant other would like to do it just long enough to refill the reservour... and then stop.
And it wouldn't be a security update story without…
Classic, just classic.
I'd go to work for Google Space Ventures
Do you think NASCAR (or F1, etc) could make more running 1 channel per camera for every car-mounted camera in the race than they do with their current broadcast contracts?
Baikonur, we have a problem.
Not a very funny one, though.
why did they leave out KPMG?
5 o'clock shadow
I used to work for a guy who could shave at 7am and have a 5 o'clock shadow at 9:30am. He had to keep a razor in his office so he could shave during his lunch hour. He'd then have a 2nd 5 o'clock shadow at 3:30 and be bearded again at 6pm.
I don't remember him ever maintaing a beard, but I can imagine what his would have looked like after 10 days.
Re: Sod the bloody Apple
Do you want me to see if my dad wants to sell his? I think he's got two or three of them.
Re: No network = No Work
Sorry, I guess I should have read to the end of the thread first...
For the rest of you that work from home, do you have a chiller for your laptop? Or do you work inside, at a desk?
Re: No network = No Work
Well yes, some of us work from home....well, /a/ home.
unintended f*c*i*g consequences.
The laws are written to cover fucking maniacs with bombs. I'm guessing that performing the "Mentos and Diet Coke" experiment will get you 10 years.
Re: Sick bastard reporting in
You, sir, are correct, except that it's not a snuff film, it's historically significant video imagery.
This reminds me of the line from "Clear and Present Danger" by Tom Clancy where the news cameras watched as the president boarded Marine 1 and watched it take off. The footage of the takeoff wouldn't be televised, but in case it exploded in mid-air, or crashed, they wanted to have the cameras rolling.
Re: I can't work out from the article if...
They're real, and they're not recent. And they're nothing your kids haven't seen in Texas Chainsaw Massacre LXIV (or Jason's vacation, or Freddy's appendectomy...)
I was going to post what you just did, so I'll just recommend everyone watch the nightly news about the latest war in Whocaresland where you'll be warned that what you're about to see may not be appropriate for those with standards.
Is this really any different than the Vietnam war era pictures of executions.
Re: Where's Silver?
You're the 2nd or 3rd person to mention this, I guess I'm going to have to refer to Google to see what this is about.
Nothing personal Mr. James, but don't most of us read most of the articles here, anyway? Or is it just me?
Re: Assuming steady price of Gorillas?
So, you peruse funnyjunk, too?
This should make your next article hilarious.
I know someone who will buy a case of these when he gets out of jail.
Re: Who does this actually benefit?
Only if it's an image.
Re: Re "Royally Fucked"...
Or you could do what Maddox did:
Re: Oh this will be fun :D
Do you realize how large of an image it would take to 'display' Steamboat Willie'?
Re: IP profits lawyers and extortion style law suits
re: Badvok. Probably, but don't (if you're a creator) hold your breath.
Only if payment for use of a work must be made when/if that work is known to be owned, and the bill is retro-active to the first use.
No one (with any sense) would use a work for which they might, retroactively, have to pay $0.10/copy for the 3 million copies they made.
I was thinking the same thing. Do you remember ASCII art? What about abstract ASCII art that is really just the contents of track 1 off of the 101 Dalmations Disney soundtrack?
Re: Privacy is <i>complicated</i>
How many fucking trees would it take for each copy of this privacy code?
as i remember...
You and yours have a couple of animals, right?. I hear that most farm-type animals cook up rather well. And if you can't convince your children that they'd make a wonderful meal, you should still be able to, if they're female, milk them (I don't envy you this because I have been subjected to non-cow milk before).
I found that by not eating out 4 times per day, and actually going to the grocery store, I could cut my food budget from $1300/month to around $225. Of course (as you commented) the bars and restaurants began to panic, and some of them actually closed.
Re: RE" it's the Linux/FOSS purists I feel sorry for, must be an embarrassment.............
Actually, I have a plugin that hides his posts.
Re: Online filth.
Yeah, but all of the ones I found were [censored].
i've got a k360
Which was the only one I could find at the local office/crapdepot that would fit, along with my lenovo L430, into my laptop case. (since the l430 has the control key in the wrong place I've not used the builtin keyboard since the second day)
Re: Persuading men to check themselves
re: womans' job
I don't know about yours, but I don't think mine knows what a cancerous testicle feels like. Come to think of it, neither do I.
I just asked her, and she said no.
Re: Great firewall of China
I do the same, and now that the last of the IPv4 addresses have been allocated, I shouldn't have to add any more /8's to my APNIC-China address object.
This coat is made of teflon, kevlar and asbestos.
Re: And when you move house....
You forgot the charge to have your 'new' appliance activated.
Re: Renewables can be more than afart in a hurricane.
Can you clarify that Germany was generating the power or was it simply being generated /FOR/ Germany? And I mean by a plant/station/resource entirely within Germany, not: located in France but owned by ABC GmBH.
Re: I'm a bearded vegetarian cycling greenie...
Not quite true. The Sahara and other large deserts are mostly vacant of human habitation (for good reason,) so all we need to do is desalinate and pump seawater inland to make them habitalble.
Re: Yeah right
Actually, U.S. exports of corn products, specifically to Mexico, have falled due to the conversion of land from food-grade corn to fuel-grade corn and the price of food south of the border has risen accordingly.
Sucks to be poor and Mexican.
But hey, we're saving the planet and there is no escape.
