HAL-9000: [message relayed from monolith] All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there. Use them together. Use them in peace.
Can someone let me know when they get it small enough to sit on the back of a De Lorean?
Can someone let me know if Playboy ever come up with something similar to this 'rewards' idea?
Are sure it wasn't launched from Klendathu?
Is there a market?
I'll happily buy their first 50 tonnes of platinum, delivered Earthside at $30 per tonne!
I made something like this as a kid. Except I decided it needed a motor as well, so I made a wooden motorcycle.
Wooden wheels, wooden frame, wooden petrol tank, wooden engine.
Sadly tho, it wooden go.
It could be worse. They could be posting just the first few words of all your friends updates, then when you click on 'more', you get "And first, a word from our sponsor with an exciting new offer!" and you have to sit through some marketing droids feeble attempt at a flash animation for a product you'd never buy.
Strictly speaking, anything that goes 'ballistic' *is* in orbit, just not a complete orbit. If you stand in your garden and throw a rock, it goes 'ballistic' and starts to fall under gravity. The faster you throw it, the further it goes. Throw it at 7 miles per second and it's in an 'escape' orbit. Any slower and it's in a 'decay' orbit.
Semantics, gotta love them!

I once built a car out of wood. Wooden wheels, wooden gears, wooden engine and so on.

Straight violation of Hipaa Privacy and the little known Hipaa security regs. If I remember correctly, that's a $50k fine PER, plus up to ten years in 'club fed' *just*on the privacy part.
On the security part::-
CEs that do not comply with the Security Rule requirements are subject to a number of penalties. Civil penalties are $100 per violation, up to $25,000 per year for each requirement violated. Criminal penalties range from $50,000 in fines and one year in prison up to $250,000 in fines and 10 years in jail.
Good grief, that's a 1996 regulation!

Cut Pakistan from the Internet completely.

instead of making honey, the bees were too busy giving each other a buzz!
