You're all missing the point. Audio Quest cables bring joy to the World!
Well, not the cables themselves, but the Amazon.com "reviews" are wonderful to cheer up a gloomy Monday morning.
Lord Lucan looks strangely modern now... must be the 'tache
I can do experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in gravity right here - I'd have more trouble doing experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in zero gravity..
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..
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.
Lucky that all these Psychos are all young kids.. and there's Dark Daylight.. Ever heard of Crap Dark Cliches? CDC's for short... Ooooh! It's SO Dark!!!
Women with hipster moustaches would be more interesting
"but what exactly is "the social enterprise sector"? "
I think it means if you talk enough bullshit to people pretending to understand your BS, they will give you some of MY money..
Soooo.. if they sell 3.9 million at $1000 each,, it'll mean the "bubble" works? Instead of "Money Men" making paper profits that somehow translates to REAL money getting even richer...
No, her paid for "media evangelists" managed to look at Google once a day and spotted the story
Ah, radar.. I remember that.. In the Good Old Days you could do stuff with it.. Watch Ruskies spying on you or trying to Bomb You Back To The Stone Age via their (37) Super Bombers.. or see where a commercial airliner crashed.. Oh! Wait!
"... 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
.. by cutting down the max. speed of Motorways (soon to be Cycle Routes, with all powered vehicals banned) to 60 MPH, then 50 MPH etc. etc.
Well, after Tony Blairs daughter tried to kill herself - you read about THAT of course... Oh wait... Maybe not... The Government wants to restrict what you can read... Cos NOBODY IS THINKING OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!
But can we weaponise it?
A Parliament of Owls are really quiet - Can't we get the same with our Parliament?
I can't wait for my biopic to come out - I wasn't a Codebreaker too!
..and due to the mainstream press coverage, people will think that 20,000 people died in Japan because of "The 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster", forgetting that it was actually the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.
The Site Agent on the Lloyds building was called Quentin Cumber, and we had a guy at work called Ronnie Sole till he changed it (in his 50's!)
That's "only" 23,000 metres, not feet
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..."
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).
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"
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
But the Mafia is a Perfect Capitalist entity! Entrepreneurs that make lots of money! Are you some kind of Pinko Commie Liberal Socialist?
What woman wouldn't LOVE a 3D printer????
There is a permit to allow utilities to park in London, with restrictions. Do not cause an obstruction, single yellow lines only etc.
Most Councils in London ignore the permits, and slap a ticket on anyway.
Don't worry about Semantics, they've got 23 Lawyers to worry about that...
Awwwww.. cudddwy bunnywunnnies... I'm sure the NSA are REALLY concerned... Oh Wait! I mean FUNDING!!!!
You gotta remember... that although you are REALLY on the Money, IT people commenting here have the concentrating levels of 8 year olds... but without their critical faculties
You have to realise, the only security they're concerned with is security of funding. If a USB stick gets them into trouble, then more funding is needed. If there's a Bad Egg on their books then they need more funding. If there's too much info coming in from their spying they need more funding... etc. etc. etc.
"Which is a good thing, as I, for one, would not leave the gates of parliament unless and until the law reverted, or I was removed."
You realise you're NOT ALLOWED to protest there without a Police/Government permit
paedophiles and heterosexual single white males
..those with the most money get the most justice
Actually, it's not Justice, it's Law, which is an entirely different thing
it actually happened on May the Fourth
... that just need to be punched until they stop spouting shit - Zuck is one, Ronald McDonald is #2, Tony Blair #3... any suggestions for 4 and 5?
Who'd have thunk that people with the Most Money use the Courts to enbiggen themselves?
Course they do. Station A in Abuja.
Hmmmm.. Think how much the UK Government could save us in other areas too!
10,000% VAT on food.. See you haven't spent a penny on food in WEEKS!
100 X the existing tax on fuel....
The possibilities are endless!
Read the non-censored non-UK press?
What criminal is this? Did I miss the trial? Or do you mean the Accused.
The people standing by who did nothing to help but took pictures and movies and then shared them, should at least be arrested for distributing child pornography, as the girl is under 18.
My 12 year old wanted an iPad, but I bought a Hello Kitty handbag instead - he wasn't too pleased
People also seem to be confusing being on a Sex Offenders register as meaning Paedophile. Couple of years ago a guy staying in a hostel in Scotland was caught by a cleaning lady having "relations" with his bicycle in his room. The room was locked, but the cleaner used her own key to get in. She complained, the guy was arrested, and convicted and put on a Sex Offenders register. Now if you didn't know the details, and you saw his name come up on Facebook as being a convicted and Registered Sex Offender, you might start worrying about your children being near him. Your children would be safe (though your bike might not be). Then he gets run out of town for using a bicycle as a masturbation aid?
I heroically resisted calling him a pedalphile.
Surely the First Strike would've been Apple (computers) striking a deal with Apple (the Original Beatles Apple) saying "OK - we won't do "music"" then releasing a music program called "So Sue Me" They are SO much anti "The Man" guys...
You get a much better price for "clean" copper than for cable etc. hence half an hour in a bonfire before taking the loot to the scrapyard will nearly double your money. I guess the side effect would be destroying any tell-tale odour markers.
Then Heinlein read it in Shakespeare's Henry VI part 2 - it's since been re-interpreted (by Lawyers) to show how Good and Noble lawyers are...
"Can you get pregnant from anal sex?"
"Yes, where do you think Lawyers come from?"
"In what world do these judges live in that $675000 isnt deemed excessive?"
When $675000 is about 1 months "Donation" from the RIAA for your re-election fund?
Higher voltage reduces transmission losses (at the cost of greater clearance distances/insulators), which probably explains where the
"We can reduce 317,000 tons of sulfur dioxide and 267,000 tons of nitrogen oxide which would otherwise be produced during the transportation," quote comes from, though without stating what this is compared to, these figures are meaningless - 800kV Vs. 400kV? 800kV Vs. 1000V?
