Probably best have an aptitude and be well trained then!

There could be wearable cams distributed throughout the real crowd and your virtual run could "patch in" with which ever cam you are "at" on your treadmill run.
With a bit of nice image blending you could get your own virtual view of the race, as it's happening, rather than what I presume would otherwise be bog standard Google Streetviews.
"That is my [idea], it is mine and belongs to me, and I own it and what it is, too"
I think the article said something like "I'll be running it with the iPad and watching myself running through the streets of London"
Oh, hang on, it did say that!
The touchdown video is impressive nonetheless!
I still use the same algorithm I used in 1983, and have had many cubes that have become destroyed by constant solving. I sometimes use a completed cube to make nice patterns and leave it on my desk for people to see (wow, how did he do that / smug git), or just therapy when talking to my IT department. I'm usually 2 - 4 minutes in slow mode, but then 'the real McCoy' official cube is not very good for speed cubing as it is actually quite stiff. Inferior models / copies actually tend to break!
Anyone who can 'do' the cube will spot that as they will know the near-completed colour combinations don't make sense.
Pure Moore Bond camp humour, the expression on his face when he drops it out of the car is priceless!
Crikey, I need a career change to be able to afford that!
Anyone want to buy an inflatable sex doll (filled with propane)?
I suspect it means 'ten centimetres cubed' rather than 'ten cubic centimetres'c
There are also added complications with spacetime, how, or if, to take time dilation into account.
Unfortunate acronym there!
The issues of leap seconds does not go away with metric time.
Much like houses and fridges these days have to be rated for environmental reasons, maybe an idea to have companies audited for a publicly visible security rating, so customers can make up their own mind about who to go with, based on how safe their personal details are with that company.

Yes, the definition does seem a bit woolly.
Because light travels in straight lines, parallel lines seem closer together the further away you look, and it looks like the light source is directly behind the photographer.
This effect would be the same on a sound stage, or on the Moon.
We're not disputing that tail fins might be or are pre-painted, just *this* video has a BA tail fin added by CGI.
Depends when you travel, how long you stay, if you stay over a Saturday, etc.
I got London - Calgary - Houston - Minneapolis - London for cheaper than London - Houston return, just because I stayed over two weekends.
Apart from the CGI'd tailfin colours for most of it.
Fruitcake for lunch!
Was thinking about choosing one of the Venus ones but the naked asteroid sounds intriguing since we'd get to see the inside of a planet - wow!
Maybe people don't like Venus because you can't see its surface.
We need a Venus rover like the one in The Six Million Dollar Man. I'd definitely vote for that!
I'm sure we'll all upvote the wheat from the chaff!
Will VW also have to pay UK government the difference in road tax based on emissions?
A Plenty which is equal to 42 undecillion
Seres cibum £XL iussi, carpe diem!
We have been using 'sidebap' for years!
As in, "Core blimey your worship, a bit of sidebap on display there!"
Ah, a shortened version of the venerated "the fucking fucker's fucking fucked"!
I'm not a fanbois as such but I do like Apple's iThings (I like apps and syncing music), I have faithfully updated my 4S with all OS releases when they come out, and have noticed my 64 GB handset slowing down recently. I was going to wait for a 128 GB 6 before changing but seems like I'm going to have to get a 64 GB 5S to deal with slowdown (and get 4G).
(Re iOS 9, has the press and navigate glass gone?)
Aghast! Agog! Agape!
He has an assembler you know:
If I got my maths right, given the distance to Enceladus, that's like flying by the Moon at 15 m altitude!

Hah, I've now logged in to your pornhub account!
Not all of us went to borstal you know!
Well you never know!
The problems we have in our company with people not following company style guide serves a very inconsistent message to our customers; if we can't get our branding right, what else can't we co-ordinate in our products and services that customers cannot easily see?
Or a version where *everything* is brass dials with electronics underneath, for the discerning steam punk!
Ticks oot for the lads!
it would 't matter, I'm pretty sure most web-enlightened people would perceive any such 'revelation' as spam anyway.
Why? I always enjoy being blinded by brake lights!
Well, 15 gear combinations which you'd never sensibly use all of*. My bike has 21 gear combinations (3 front x 7 back) and I use all 7 on the front middle cog, and about 2 backs each on the other two fronts, so in all is 11 +/-.
*apparently you can weaken the chain links on some combinations
Ahem, I believe it is nearside and offside!
