Health and safety gone maddddd!

Does the average commentard here really drive in such a manner that looking away (or adjusting ones focus) for 1/2 a second will result in an accident?

p'raps that explains the vast numbers of drives who regard mirrors as vanity accessories!

Take an LGV course, you spend way way WAY more time looking in your mirrors*, and compensate by considering driving conditions further up the road (a lot further up the road if you have a liquid or swinging load)

It's just the same information we are all processing now, with a fractionally different delivery system. If you cant deal with it, turn it off or preferably take the bus.

* a truck driver should be at least as aware whats going on behind him as is in front.

Re: The internet

WHAT?

You think the net happened by accident?

You need to take more water with it mate.

The internet is a prime example of precisely, and I mean that in it's technical sense, precisely the opposite of the point you are trying to make.

It's a fantastic example of forward planning and it is regulated all to fuck - just not by governments.

You don't believe me? try unplugging that cat 5 cable from the back of your computer and shouting 'google' really loudly into it. see how far you get.

just because you lack the wit to appreciate the organisation does not mean it is not there

way to fail!

and the government put him in charge of a review of the only competition to roads.....

A bit like having liam fox head an investigation into closeted public officials treating their boyfriends to international travel at the public's expense!

what is the real problem with rail travel? they don't depart from anywhere near where I am, and they don't go anywhere near to where I want to go.

And who do we thank for that?

Re: Inefficiency

All of that is explained by incompetent management, and whether the enterprise is government run or privately owned, we will always have PHB's fucking everything up.

_that_ is the british disease (we think 'management' is a specialist subject - divorced from the actual work of the business.... well it fucking isn't).

I would counter the nationalisation/privatisation argument with the simple fact that there is nothing, not one thing that has happened in any of the privatised utilities that couldn't have happened while the enterprise was state run - given appropriate instruction from the owners... us!. There was simply a lack of political will to do so. And that applies to all parties! The soviet system didn't fail due to some ideological shortcoming as all you hayek cocksuckers insist. the entire country was utterly corrupt. that's what caused the implosion.

About as corrupt as American society is today... just wait and see (i'll give you a clue... it's behind you!)

MS and Adobe are pushing on-line versions

I'm beginning to come round to this idea TBH

Anything that ends the Sisyphean 'upgrade' (what-the-fuck-grade) cycle of annual updates with no significant productivity gain (all more than offset by the bugs in the new bits), but different enough to require staff training or variation to your internal systems. Who knows someone might even come up with the innovation of software that just does what it's supposed to do, and wont go titsup every 10 minutes. and if it helps the vendors address piracy, than that's all good too.

hope he sues the people that made money off the dip to get some money to pay his fines.

(the clue is in the question: for everyone _selling_ for an artificially low price and losing out there was someone else _buying_ for an artificially low price and making a profit.)

Hence a zero sum game.

Re:DID verify it first

They failed massively too. even my gran knows better than to call the number listed in the mail, or visit the site listed in the email.

The press that didn't check were negligent.

The ones that called the number off the mail were stupid to the point of negligence.

Re: I think...

Agreed!

So Mr Page, regarding that itchy mole that recently appeared on your back, will you;

a) Take the advice of your regular GP

b) Consult with a specialist dermatologist - who has specialised in this condition

c) Post a question on !yahoo !answers and go with the most popular opinion

yeah I thought so.

Re: re : James 51

so you are the type of cyclist that ignores red lights then....

and when you are killed doing it, it will be the drivers fault.

and not 'all' people cross against a red. In fact this very weekend me and 10 or so of my mates were out on the piss, and traversing town from pub to pub on 2 occasions we waited at red lights even though there was no traffic coming. (and to be fair taking the piss out of ourselves as we did it!)

apparently it's more common in germany

Duhhh!

What's the point in buying a government if you can't then go on to recoup your costs by ripping off the public.

I think it's called 'the market' :-)

Before making a right wing knee-jerk DV, think about it. what is the exact mechanism that results in this insanity? the market. it might be broken, but nonetheless that's what it is. the power resides with the politicians, being a politician is heinously expensive, so if you want to continue to be a politician you gotta suck a lot of cocks. Corporations have a shitload of cash which they (wisely) invest in buying the government, who in turn ensure the corp is still there writing cheques at the next electoral cycle.

supply and demand, just in this instance (and lets be honest in just about every other conceivable instance) the people get screwed along the way.

democracy don't mean shit if collectively you are going to consistently vote like twats.

Re: What do you think mass surveillance is?

Isn't that the sad irony.

Bin Laden has won. He'd won on September the 12th, but our betters and wisers were too full of their own cleverness to spot this.

that's the trouble with democracy :-) look around you.... how would you feel about those people organising your pension? picking a retirement home for you? what's the odds that collectively they couldn't even sit the right way round on a toilet.

and they decide who gets to play with the big levers.

.. all we need now is to find a better way to do it :-D

Re: Dangerous precedent

Are you speaking with forked tongue about the killing fields? That could end up with you being sent to the gulags, if Robespierre does not drive you across the Atlantic on the mayflower, and no one expects that (their chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our four...no... amongst our weapons.... amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... ).

Re: hmmmm

Radar - most likely no. The cops have mostly switched to IR laser guns and this should be perfect for them. Ditto for any laser rangefinder - there will be nothing to return back, so this clearly has some very obvious applications.

I think not.

as a stripling i recall fucking around with phase conjugate mirrors - used in loads of laser applications and 99.96% is no great shakes. (think high energy - if you have 0.04% of the output of a 600W co2 laser heating up a few sq mm of the layer of a mirror a few microns thick... thats a 2 bucket fire right there!)

reflection being 1/absorption we can say that if 0.04% gets bounced. that's probably enough to be detected pretty easily.
