I believe that was part of Blunkett's "burn the witches" campaign to prevent lightning strikes.

It's a bit like the Jeffery Archer suing the Daily Mail. You don't know who to cheer for - you just hope it's a long drawn out fight.
Although some home secretaries (like Jack Straw) only turn into raving loonies on appointment - as a former resident of the People's Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire I can confirm that Blunkett was a couple of gulags short of a politburo back then.
If you asked people to send money to the chancellor to fund fighting in Afghanistan I suspect that preferences would be reveled pretty quickly.
Even if you did have Cherie Blair doing a tearful piece to camera - "just 1.4 Million pounds can ensure that this village receives it's own cruise missile"
And all you have to do is completely trust the big smelters.
You could also save huge amounts of money by getting rid of the FDA and just asking the manufacturers if their drugs were safe.
Some genius from the WHO on the radio saying it was unnecessary and inefficient to screen passengers for Ebola arriving on direct flights from the infected area because they were being screened by the Liberian authorities on departure.
A few people with privilege had a word with their chief supers and suggested they wouldn't be invited to diner at the big house if the unwashed plod were allowed to just march in.
They had a word down at the rolled-up-trouser with the ACPO and the rules were changed
Isn't it nice to live in a representative democracy
I think many Tories (and probably UKIP) are in favour of a single open european sky.
Bigging Hill to Frankfurt, non-stop and home in time for breakfast.
Although perhaps a more interesting book than any of the individual titles
Be carefull, if you type Godel into Google you get a paradox
I always thought he got in the circus because of his writing with Terry Jones?
The greedy fat-asses are your grandmother.
Most shareholders are institutions, pension funds and insurance companies, if they don't do as much as they can for their shareholders it is the pensioners that lose money - not the CEO of the companies they are buying
I did see one US government chap with a Blackberry.
Rather dark sun tan, smiled a lot, kept talking about hope - not sure what happened to him
If you are a lawyer working for somebody who has the temerity to sue the government then you are obviously a extremist, if not an actual supporter of terrorism, so you get all you deserve.
The bit you are missing is "government lawyers"
Based on their record of spies/traitors we have to assume that Al Queda has been running MI5 for the last 15-20 years.
I salute your analogy sir.
If an external company running their HVAC had 1000s of bits of kit connected to the same network that ran the POS machines - the weak passwd wasn't exactlythe problem.
It's like saying that we have had thefts by our own security guards so we are changing the color of their uniforms.
>Giving hacking tools the legal status of 'ammunition'
And give the police powers to make no-notice, no-warrant searches of your house if you have a gdb-license. Just to make sure you keep your copy of wireshark in a locked cabinet of course.
Each watch was made in a different state that had a congressman that supported the Nasa budget.
In contrast I go outside and it seems crawling with idiots - when I go inside many of them dissapear
So the moon landings weren't shot in a studio - they were all done with CGI.
Pretty impressive for the 1960s ;-)
Q. How many senior ophthalmic surgeons have had this procedure?
Q. How many even wear contact lenses ?
It's also useless for most "zero gravity" research anyway because its manned. So full of breathing, footsteps, pumps, vibration etc
Except I have big problems finding anything other than "k12 outreach" science from the ISS
"conducted experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in gravity"
Nice to know that the ISS continues to be at the forefront of advanced astrophysical research.
Cable ties and duct tape
So you can't get a $600 iPhone for free on a 3year contract, unlock it and immediately cancel the contract and sell the phone on ebay?
Damn - I had a whole business model based on that.
The BBC iPlayer will support offline listening to radio - some time in summer 2015.
Perhaps all BBC employees have continuous unlimited data 3g streaming to listen on the site when they are commuting.
To be fair, his sports shots were crap
All the immigration desks at Heathrow T5 were running XP when I went through last month
So the number of XP machines being used to browse whatever sites are signed up to their ads is down compared to Win8.
The number of XP machines being used for real work inside corporate firewalls and not browsing ad-packed websites is .....
In other news Halfords announce that the worlds most popular car is a 10year old Fiesta with fake XR3i badges and dummy turbo exhausts.
That unfortunately is the problem with ITER.
Imagine a consortium of all the Eu, Russia, USA, Japan, Korea, China trying to build something insanely complex, but instead of contributing money they all chip in the bits that they want to build - if there is any part that nobody wants to build it doesn't get built.
And almost all the companies building the parts in those countries are defence linked so don't even trust themselves never mind the other partners.
Then you site it in France so French govt bureaucracy gets to do the permits for everything.
Whereas all new oil and gas production has to fund the costs of removing all that CO2 from the atmosphere ?
There is no need to build any new nuclear power stations in Britain.
We can simply buy reliable French nuclear power while in turn selling them decent hard cheese and proper beer.
Whereas his opposite number is a former kindergarten student who used to soil his own nappies
In the case of glass milk bottles it is almost 100 times more energy intensive to make them, transport them, wash them out, collect and transport them back to the plant, wash and sterilise them and use them again - than it is to use plastic pouches.
I wasn't saying anything about the pilot - if anything their PR dept + beardie were being disrespectful by putting out an overblown "The Right Stuff" hero type statements with an eye to the share price.
The pilot died testing an prototype aircraft that was very clever, very novel and an excellent piece of engineering and everybody is rightfully sad about that but it is the same as if a driver had died testing a formula 1 car.
>How did you work that out?
The virgin "spacecraft" isn't a step to space like SpaceX or even the shuttle.
It is a sub-orbital ballistic flight to get somebody to an official definition of "space" so they can say they have done it. It is more like designing and building a helicopter that can reach 30,000ft so you can run tourist trips to the top of Everest. Technically challenging - yes, dangerous - yes, profitable - yes, but a breakthrough in mountaineering - no.
Frankly the "he died for the future of the human race in space" PR releases are like comparing somebody being killed on a jet ski accident on holiday to the sailors that died on Atlantic convoys in WWII.
Except he isn't doing "space travel" - he is doing a brief sub-orbital hop for people who either don't understand the difference or just want to say they have done it.
It isn't advancing human-whatsit anymore than millionaires having a flight in a jet fighter.
You don't know the lengths InPark will goto to collect on penalty notices - Orpheus has nothing on them.
Then it is upto them to defend this view in court.
It is reasonable to trespass to save a life.
That means I can jump over your fence to pull you out of a river.
It doesn't mean I can break into your house to PATT test your kettle.
I thought they weren't allowed to spy on MPs ?
This could be the flaw in their plans.
If evil foreigners in Iraq are planning to behead westerners then perhaps spying on evil foreigners in Iraq might be an optimal strategy?
Of course when we faced imminent annihilation from 20,000 soviet nulcear warheads - the same agencies concentrated on spying on the Bishop of Durham and Peter Sellers so perhaps they know best
Roll-back / Roll-out
The crap English is deliberate - or at least in their favour.
They are fishing for idiots - every email that initially fools a smart person who replies is a cost for them with no pay off when the smart person eventually fails to send them the processing fee or credit card.
With the bad English, smart people never reply, but the idiots do. Those people are much more likely to eventually cough up cash
If you want to read the paper take a look at Petzold's book on turing's work
Even if you understand the maths it's useful to have the 1930s fonts and notation explained.
Or it's because a sex scene lets you show some tit and so boosts your audience.
Most "straight" sex scenes in movies don't tend to concentrate on the leading man's dangly bits.
Not quite. The polish and the french both broke (or rather developed the techniques to attack) the original version of the enigma. The poles after the Germans accidentally shipped a machine to them instead of the German embassy.
Bletchley park cracked the more complex version with rotors and developed ways to do so in useful time - there is little tactical benefit in taking 3months to crack a code that changes daily.
The real unknown genius of Bletchley is Tutte who cracked the far more complex Lorenz system without anyone ever having seen one.
