If I kill myself having an accident whilst riding a motorbike without a lid, assuming I die before the ambulance arrives, surely I'm putting less of a strain on the health service than if I am wearing a lid and have an accident and subsequently need lots of medical attention due to injuries?
(I am deliberately ignoring the effects either may have on friends and family, but I can think of siutuations where dying would place less burden on them than surviving, depending on the personalities of the people involved)

And that is one of the main pulls for this woman and the others on there I know ;)
Not 13" - so less than half a foot long, so not as bad!
But still, likely to have the same turn off effect.
Icon as extensive flamage is probably the best way to deal with them.
Whiff of hypocrisy?
So, on the Mumsnet thread we have everyone saying that the users should take responsibility for their own machines, and on this thread everyone seems to be saying the OS provider should...
And on other Apple threads we have people berating them for their closed garden approach, and here we have people saying they're not closed enough...
The issue here shouldn't be that bad people do bad things, nor should it be that a company has failed to preventt bad people doing bad things to people who have bought that company's products (I mean would you seriously blame the company you got your windows from if a burglar gained entry and stole things because they smashed one of the windows?), but that a company allegedly tells it staff to avoid the question.
The solution is education, of course.
Actually, maybe they should be paid more attention to
Especially by the various child protection agencies around the world - after all, they are publically declaring they cannot look after their children...although that probably wouldn't result in the parents getting a visit from the authorities asking pointed questions about their claims.
Was only able to add one more thumbs up
so have another beer
5 > 4 but < 6
Or less concisely, it started at 6, dropped by two to 4, and has only been raised by 1 to 5.
And as far as I'm concerned that is far more romantic than meeting on Facebook (stop looking at me like that, I'm being serious!)
Beer, for toasting
The Twelve South case
You can synch with the case on if you're only using a cable, and not a dock - the zip flattens just enough, and the bottom corners are far enough from it for the cable to fit without any problems
Congrats to all
Glad plane and playmonaut are found :)
Aww be fair - Victorinox mostly aren't overpriced or overhyped. And they seem to be built well.
I saw that reported on an IT news site (not El Reg, might've been Silicon), but never bothered to check further than the headline.
I realise you're probably trolling
Or maybe just being sarcastic, but in case anyone thinks you're actually being serious (or even actually are being serious) you really don't see anything wrong with asking group a (in this case internet cafe owners) to spy on group b (in this case, their customers) and reporting anything that group b is doing that group a think is dodgy?
Not just the spying angle but
"Café owners are asked to use their own judgement as to what amounts to extremist material"
I really don't know what to say (I've tried a few times to type my incredulity at this stupidity out, and can't find the words)
Am I the only one who read
"the titanic subterranean magno-doughnut particle smasher" as the titanic subterranean maNGo-doughnut particle smasher?
Ah well. My excuse is it's lunchtime
