Spot Goes to the Fallout Shelter?
I believe Noah Webster sought English spelling reform given an opportunity to do so at the dawn of a new culture. By way of analogy, pints and litres can be used to measure the same quantity, and in a world where both are used, bothering to understand the difference and what the conversion is allows you to understand how much beer you want to buy instead of pontificating about how it's measured.
And I thought we were talking about "fertili"&CHAR(113+(2*(Country$="UK"))+(9*(Country$="USA")))&"er"!
You obviously have not been there on a Saturday night!
What if I don't want to live in France?
The image in the video seems to show the 'lid' and a single petal had deployed. You do wonder if the vibrations of the landing could have distorted the apparatus somehow to create a simple mechanical obstruction to full deployment.
I hope it's better than Siri
who which kept on telling me about a 'new rose' every time I asked for Euro exchange rates!
They'd have to do a bit of EVA. Like in films.
I have an outside toilet as well, does that count as downstairs, or something different?
Wow, a crude oil tanker! Will they be building a nice one now she has been scrapped?
Wow, I didn't know Opportunity could fly as well! No wonder it's low on battery!
Would it be worth the occasional covert surveillance
Don't like? Don't buy!
Wondering about creation just needs wonder.
There's not nessie-ssarily plesiosaurs in Scotland just because some has a photo of one!
I looked on the internet and my conclusion is a suspicion that there are orders of magnitude more water in the sea than all of the animals that have ever existed could have passed.
Not very robust for a lunch-hour investigation but:
o Discussion: how many organisms have ever lived on Earth?
Too many people poo-poo (ahem) Bill Gates in his efforts to use his amassed wealth to help humanity, he doesn't have to; good on him I say!
There will have to be a machine to remove the lolly sticks first!
I suggest you overuse 'literally'.
In the UK at least, much drinking water comes from the sky, and is collected in various reservoirs located in the more rainy areas of the country, the water itself ultimately originating in the Atlantic Ocean, which is huge to say the least. Yes biological waste will and does end up there (and has done over all of geological time) but I would wager that most of it repeatedly runs off back into the sea where it came from, unadulterated by faunal oesophagi!
most of the students will get to see their investigations re-flown
Sorry for the kids whose experiments didn't make it second time round! Gutted!
Ford said no such thing, they quoted 600,000 cubic inches!
Yes, quite a difficult analogy for the breakfast table!
The Alcosense Elite available in UK for £60 has a cleaning function where a small fan extracts moisture ready for the next use. They also do more budget models but without this function. Also it does not make judgements about your imminent demise, just whether you are over the limit, or not.
Why not have a space station in Earth orbit from where crew could rest before and after missions, and you could transfer them to and from space via some sort of reusable shuttle craft?
I just found out that gullible isn't in the dictionary!
Corner coffee shop & takeaway; Chinese takeaway (advertising justeat.co.uk); Chinese travel shop; grocery store specialising in Asian food; hairdressers; photography shop (that does visa and passport photos); pet supplies shop that sells windows (or a window shop that sells pet supplies); Chinese restaurant; estate agents; another takeaway; pub; newsagents; betting shop; kebab shop; another hairdressers.
And a giant Lidl on the other side of the road where you can't get:
- hot food
- a haircut
- a betting receipt
- your photo taken
- a paper
I'd like to do that to most of the House of Commons
Is that because the House of Lords has already been done?
Students.... students? Eurghhhh,,,,, Students.
Luckily this can only happen on the launch pad.
Maybe you'll know after the test results are made available.
Does 'rarely crowded' mean that everyone has a seat to sit on?
If the hit counter breaks then surely that means it's time for everyone to move on and look at something else and the video be removed and never be allowed to be uploaded again. Ever.
And North Korea calls itself a Democratic People's Republic
democracy (n.) noun, a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.
See, a democracy!
Buggy sauce anyone?
IMO Tyrell's statement to Batty about burning twice as bright, living half as long was just to use a Chinese proverb to placate him, not that replicants lived longer if they had quieter lives!
It didn't seem to work very well though!
I will say that the A5 going into Wales sees a lot more nutty driving than up 'til then, it's mainly small hatchbacks with drainpipe exhaust pipes scraping the ground.
I found the article very negative about sat nav, maybe tongue in cheek at best. I've had various devices over the years, including factory fitted, but now find that Google Maps on my phone is just fine, very accurate, and gives accurate real time traffic information (I can only presume as crowd-sourced from connected devices). The only downside is having to set up a route where there is 3G, it uses GPS from then on; otherwise it's back to that old screen in the glove box or, shudder, actually knowing how to get to where you're going.
often leaving them open as I drove around after a liquid lunch without wearing a seat belt, happy days!
