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.

Re: The proof is in the reciprocity of Russian foreign policy
"...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."
It was called "Brown Bottom" in gold trading circles
Re: The proof is in the reciprocity of Russian foreign policy
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?
Naaaaa... That's whipped cream, not the proper clotted cream.
Re: Can someone tell me,
Alexander Baron the WW2 writer once saw a "Liberated" piano on the back of a British tank, so no problem with a teleprinter.
Re: The people who appointed him
So, get your mates to set you up in Office, then turn it into a fiefdom. Sounds like standard practice to me (FIFA, EUFA, International Olympic Comittee etc.)
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.

"that it did not adhere to the new guidelines covering access to communications data during a recent investigation into alleged serious breaches of information security" should read -

Re: Psycopaths and sociopaths
Yeah, but they're both cunts
Upvote just because of the "normal people vs rabid bloodthirsty fanatics". I think you summed it up.
Spelling of Lynx? Maybe missmelled that.
I get my saltpetre from Amazon, 40g was the smallest available. Only need a pinch in your salt/sugar/syrup rub to make your own bacon.
Nope - Urban myth
Re: Why are you wasting our time with this?
Smoke alarm? Oh, you mean the bacon/toast is ready alarm
Prey to God you NEVER have to have anything to do with TfL.
It's like trying to deal with a 1970's Labour Borough Council.
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.
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.
Every cloud has a silver lining
Audio Quest Woo Cables
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.
In that picture..
Lord Lucan looks strangely modern now... must be the 'tache
Re: ISS science
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..
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.
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
Re: I know I'm getting old ...
"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...
Re: She reads El Reg!
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
But HMG has it covered..
.. 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!!!!!
Re: I have scientific proof
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!
Give it 2 or 3 more years..
..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.
Some cruel parents about
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).
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"
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...
