Facepalm

Someone once pointed out to me that a 16 year old couple can get married, go on their honeymoon and have a Nice Lusty Night, and that's perfectly legal. But if they take a selfie of their Nice Lusty Night they are suddenly criminals.

"...as bad as Gordon Brown's chosen moment to sell UK's gold reserve when can-I-please-come-back-into-politics-because-I-really-miss-robbing-the-taxpayers Tony Blair let him loose on the economy."

Wasn't "The Big Thing" for kidney stones a few years ago being put in a bath of water and sonic shocks used to break them up? Couldn't they combine the 2, and fit baths to rollercoasters?

Gillian Anderson: The next James Jane Bond?

KBeee

Re: On a Serious Note

David Tennant doesn't have that "physicality" needed by Bond.

I always thought before Pierce Brosnan got the job, that "Chancer" Clive Owen would make a terrific Bond. Still think he'd have been the better choice, and was (then) young enough to stay Bond for a long time.

OK - this is AFTER PUB stuff , you don't need "24 hour Marinade" (while squiffy), or 93 ingredients..

Put slice of bread into toaster - Fill 1/3 mug of water - break egg in - 1 minute in microwave - leave for 20 seconds - 10 more seconds in microwave - put perfect poached egg onto toast. Dribble down chin.

America was founded on a dislike of taxes, so how did it get the IRS?

KBeee

No Taxation Without Representation!

Except "Representation" was turned down by the Colonists (twice).

A good read about the War of Independence, though fictional, but probably closer to the truth than most history books would be "Scoundrel" by Keith Thompson. It does a "Flashman" to those troubled times, but using a real protaganist instead of a fictional one.

UK smart meters arrive in 2020. Hackers have ALREADY found a flaw

KBeee

The thing I find most strange is that when the UK had the CEGB, National Grid, and distribution "Electricity Boards", there was LESS Gubmint interference than these "Free Market" companies get.

UK Gov throws up it's hands in HORROR that "We've GOT to rip you off cos the European Bureaurocrats are DEMANDING that we force Smart Meters on you so we can pay rich people to put Bling (solar panels) on their roofs and wind turbines in their Ancestial Grounds!"

While trying to repeal Human Rights laws..

Police stats inflate the number of guns actually stolen in Blighty

KBeee
Meh

Nothing much changes

It was only a few years ago that certain types of air pistols were banned because

"half of all firearms recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds".

Sounds like a LOT of guns...

After they had been banned it turned out that the correct statement should have been

"half of all firearms, adapted from other things, recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds"

The actual number was 5.

Little error?

"... the threat of terrorism was called a "cover for action," something to trigger an emotional response that can be used to get powers that would otherwise be available."

I think there should be a "not" before "otherwise" or "be" in there

Well, AOL banned "Breast" which upset the Breast Cancer Support groups, and I got banned from a forum for talking about the Japanese legend/historical figure Yoshitsune.. So what could possibly go wrong?

On the other hand, if (when) Gov.uk needs Daily Mail "Think Of The Children" headlines, then maybe they can say "We did a Consultation..."

Snowden journo's partner wins partial injunction on seized data

KBeee

I should imagine that what has been disclosed so far by Mr. Snowden and The Guardian is the tip of the iceberg. The Gruadian - and probably Mr. Snowden - is usually pretty sensitive about what gets released so as not to endanger people. HMG and USG are probably crapping themselves in case more immediate and sensitive stuff gets revealed. Hence a dump of everything Mr. Snowden has would probably be the worse thing that could happen. Plus HMG likes to show how "tough" it is on people that step out of line (so long as it's not themseves).

Working for a big utility

our computer system went down last week, and someone jokingly said "Chinese Hackers!"

Then someone else said "But we're owned by the Chinese, they don't need to Hack us"

"US Hackers!"

When essential utilities such as water, gas, electricity etc. are foreign owned, I can't really see the problem, just so long as we do as we're told
