> I didn't realize Daily Telegraph is one of the whatdoyoucallthem... tabloids.
The Telegraph certainly is NOT one of those tabloids who show some topless model on page 3.
Instead we have several pages of tasteful pictures of the teenage daughters of some minor royal in their bikinis and a journalistically acclaimed 10page special on a new lingerie range - with pictures.
>I have no interest in buyinhg any of the shit they try to sell me,
But if you don't buy something from every commercial break you are stealing television.
There's a difference?
My client didn't kill the victim, however the insertion of bullets into the victims head was "incompatible with life"
If we allow these mobile phones then London's iconic red phone boxes could disappear
And the black cabs follow the guild model. Individual masters, barrier to entry, monopoly powers, opposition to change.
Although in practice the average life of an engine component was something like 1.3 launches.
It's difficult to steer parachutes precisely with a big rocket hanging off the end.
With the Apollo modules they were aiming for an ocean. It's a lot harder to open a parachute 100km up and steer to a barge or landing pad.
The only use for a parachute would be to lose some velocity at higher altitude and then release it to steer back to the pad, but the mass of fuel to lift the extra mass of the parachute is likely to be higher than the margin of fuel needed to slow it by the same amount
> AND could potentially be able to clamp the rocket beyond the unstable point,
But then parts of the rocket would be subject to big tension and shear/bending loads. So you need to make the rocket body + fuel tanks much stronger than if they purely go up and then powered vertically down. Then they experience almost entirely compression loads on axis
>Also, the barge is the size of a football pitch...
So that explains why, after a perfect landing, it clutched its knee and fell over - then rolled off the pitch.
But they and their counterparts at Google Ireland are incredibly efficient workers.
All the sales throughout the Eu are performed totally and solely by that handful of diligent Celtic chaps.
Unless Malta or Slovenia offer a lower rate than Ireland and an even more accomodating regulator.
Traditionally Ireland was chosen as a european HQ for your American business because they spoke English, you could play golf, they had a close approximation to Whisky and the wife could pop over to London for a weekends shopping.
For a dot-com multinational that just need a single server and a brass plaque they aren't as sentimental.
I think there will be a little behind the scenes deal where Apple pay 1% of this to Ireland and stay there.
If Ireland actually extracted the fine, then Amazon, Google, Microsoft and all the other giants of the Irish IT industry with their literaly several Irish employees would all leave for a more accomodating Eu country
There is only a finite number of integer bitcoins.
There are an almost infinite number of fractions of a bitcoin.
But it's not chinese in the same way that Paypal is american.
They are mostly mined in china, but that's like saying Gold is Australian or Canadian.
China can't decide that you aren't allowed to make payments to Wikileaks or Greenpeace or other terrorist organisations - PayPal can.
While the US$ is only used for the church collection plate on sunday
Container ships already have crews at pretty much the minimum to staff 3 watches = 12 people for a vessel 1/4 mile long.
The crew are really there for fires and other emergencies - the words biggest container ship nearly sank in the Suez canal when one of it's prop blades decided to take a short cut through the hull. It was only saved because of the crew.
Because the messages weren't encrypted they can't have been secret.
That's why we need to make encryption mandatory for terrorists and then require backdoors
Can I tender to supply them with petabytes of write-only storage?
Like the famous East-German 2 person + 1 dog policy.
One person can read, one person can write - and the dog is to keep an eye on the dangerous intellectuals.
I think it's the morals that we are discussing
And even after the horrors of the great website redesign - we are still a little way away from the BBC running a "viewers send in their car accident photos" bit at the end of the 6 o'clock news
Obviosuly not going to pass - but it is something we should start thinking about.
Schools ban parents taking photos of their own kids in a school play - but if the kid was lying dying in the road you could splash that photo across Facebook.
The definition of "professional news media" is probably an organisation that wouldn't do that without some serious public interest reason
Are frozen chickens a common component of airport fauna?
We need a constitutional amendment for the right to bear badminton rackets and a Nation Racket Association to defend our freedom to defend ourselves from small model helicopters.
Obviously following a series of tragic incidents in schools squash rackets will be banned
"The FAA in the US recently announced the mandatory registration of all drones over 250 grams"
Further shocking evidence that the Feds have a secret plan to implement the metric system and make us all French
I think London should seriously consider banning V1s
But m'lud I feel that my clients should be treated more leniently - after all they have to pay my fee.
So change the law so it isn't illegal.
Having something illegal but you only bother to use heavy penalties against people you don't like isn't exactly the basis for democracy.
>What's that, she has no money to pay the fine... but you want to increase it?
M'lud my clients have spent all the money they robbed from the bank and are now unemployed (until the Croyden post-office job comes up) and so feel that a fine of 10% of the proceeds would be appropriate.
>some people really don't have a distinguishing body
triBool = male / female / file-not-found
And that they also read el' reg = underflow error
That's the advantage of FORTRAN, support for gender as a complex number.
Disadvantage - you don't care about the gender of anyone who knows FORTRAN
>"Right to Bare Arms".
And for so many of them waiting for the rupture ?
In other news - politicians "thinking of the children" banned guns, arrested all catholic priests and doubled funding to education.
I bought one of those as my flashy top of the range phone (admittedly for $20 because some store did the maths wrong on what it costs to buy out the contract).
Then I leaned too far off a dock to grab a rope.....
Now I'm back to my no name Android 4.4 "smart" phone
Could start a new trend for reviewing products without mentioning their name - except it would take about 3 weeks for this to become the new hipster trend....
Just have a single national shared password.
If there are any concerns about security it could be changed regularly.
So if he had only been paid $9M, he wouldn't have bothered launching the apple Watch
If a few extra terrorists deaths is what it takes to protect our government from expense account investigating journalists, environmentalists, unions and other clear and present threats to their seats then we have to take that risk.
And we were worried about the new more grown-up more professional Reg wouldn't be as funny
It is rare for a VC funded startup company to make the sort of 10-0% redundancy to make this quarters figures look good. You are either in a desperate hiring frenzy or you go bust.
The USA is just a giant reality TV show
At the top - an unknown sysadmin who access to the General's computer and knows how to clear the access logs.
Yes but before to spy on a person 24x7 you needed half a dozen agents, and then another few to monitor those - so you could only spy on 10% of the population by having the other 90% work for the FBI.
That was the problem the Stasi faced - even with informers, it had more people working for it than it was spying on.
The dangers of typos - all those fundamentalists praying for the rupture.
Truss in the Lord and yea shall be healed.
The Saudis have nukes? BAe really did do a good sales job !
That's what THEY want you to think !
Come back dick - all is forgiven ?
