whose main mode of transport is a skateboard?
^ correct way to protest
Since getting rid of the previous 5.1 setup, I realised that my TV sounds sufficient, as it is.
Three hours of cars driving round in circles, serving as background noise for your dad to fall asleep to after Sunday dinner. Thrilling stuff.
Appropriate choice of film, too (even if it is rubbish).
So, a pie must have a pastry top and a pastry base, except when it doesn't? Quality legislation, that'll make.
As stated above, they'll rise up at a predetermined hour, and sink below once the need has passed, rather than appearing and disappearing on demand. There's a simialr scheme operating in some British towns, except that, rather than rising from the floor, they're dropped off from the back of a truck, and collected up at the end of the night.
Here's hoping they come up with a case that can protect against the usual bumps, but leave the rear screen readable.
This is the last time I steal a joke from Charlie Brooker.
You forget to mention that playing PacMan doesn't make you run around darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.
I blame those NHS death panels, that leave disabled people on mountainsides, to be devoured by wolves.
I've yet to see a notification for it on my 2012 Nexus 7. Given what I've read about it, I'm not that bothered, tbh (quite tempted to get it back onto Jelly Bean, or find something whizzy on xda-developers, although it's been a little more stable, of late, so might just save the hassle and leave it as is).
Apple Turnover? Only taxed if you buy it warm, I believe.
Yes, I rather suspect that it does, and we should probably be improving our sex education in schools, to help young people deal with these issues. What I don't agree with, is this crazy attempt to outlaw anything that isn't "vanilla" sex, on film.
A loose internal connection meant that my +3 (I know, and I'm sorry) was fixed by jamming a Rubik's Snake between the Multiface and (I think) the video cable.
After I sold it to my more technically-minded friend, he popped the case off and soldered the connection back together. I still think that folding the Snake to exactly the right shape was the more satisfying solution.
You call jumping around like a hyperactive idiot "nothing"?
Quite. My other half got the Desire 500, and it was pretty much out of storage from the moment it was switched on. A nice phone, otherwise.
Doctor Who seems to use his quite a lot, in the new series.
We need more of these things.
Business as usual, then?
Knowing how to type the correct search terms into Google, can easily get you branded as some sort of "computer wizard".
"Bad news: your uncle has died. But, cheer up, he's left you his laptop..."
Aw, that was sweet of him. *fires up laptop, opens browser, is mentally scarred for life*
I think that's why.
without wondering what Master Chef has got to do with it. Is Greg Wallace inside that green armour?
be plugged in to the cigarette lighter.
The trouble with democracy, is that it lets politicians get into positions of power.
Said the actress to the bishop.
Quite right. A good thing that we've long since outlawed sugar, alcohol, and nicotine.
If you can get past all the negatives (of which there are many, so you really can't), who among us doesn't want to act like Picard, and be able to bark questions at the walls? Hook it up to a 3D printer, and you could at least ask it to form a cup to hold your tea, earl-grey, hot!
so I'd look on whistfully as others played Ghost'n'Goblins, Operation Wulf, or Outrun, as I pushed my coppers into the 2p push machine.
Once I'd bought myself a PlayStation (must have been 20 years old *sigh*) a Capcom compilation was one of my first purchases. Ghosts'n'Goblins (and Ghouls'n'Ghosts)! But, wait - it's bastard hard and I can barely get past the first level. *crushing disappointment*
Nostalgia is best left in the past. I had a lot more fun playing Smash TV (with infinite continues), but that quickly got boring as it rendered it all too easy. Surely there is a middle ground?
It's about time we put a Catholic back on the throne, too.
How do they cope when I child attempts to hitch a ride on their back, or tip them over?
I want to downvote this, on the grounds that footballers are overpaid, but what you've written is all true.
I think professional football is a load of rubbish, and thus throw precisely none of my disposable income at it, but plenty of people feel different, and jacking up the gate prices doesn't seem to put them off.
Why would you post this?
Can't they get insurance cover for this sort of thing?
Shirley it's "bake off"?
Locking people up isn't primarily about punishment, it's about protecting society from those that wish to do it harm (and with the intent that they can be rehabilitated)). It's also absurdly expensive, and so would be best used only when absolutely required.
And no, I don't believe that a bit of litter picking is an appropriate response to a career criminal, but nor do I think that banging him up and forgetting about him is the answer. Oh, I know, let's just lop his hands off - that'll put an end to his schemes.
Unless you represent a danger to yourself or others, prison should not be required for your rehabilitation (unless it's the only way to ensure that you attend for it). Community service should be the preferred option in most cases.
Surely, if you patent something not with the intent to make it yourself, but to prevent others from making it, you're abusing the system?
social media be used to inform people that their privacy might be being violated.
Looked like Lemarchand's box, to me!
You're spot on, here - Doctor Who is a kids' show, always has been, always will be. It's going wrong because it's trying, and failing, to appeal to adults, rendering it incomprehensible to children (quoth my youngest: "THIS IS BORING!").
I think it might also be suffering becuase the stories are crushed into 35/40 minutes, and thus have a hurried resolution - I don't necessarily want a return to the 4 cliffhangers + 1 resolution, of my childhood, but the decent stories of the past 2 episodes have had very rushed conclusions ("it's a flag, he's a soldier, I'll salute him and he'll fall apart" / "I'll leap out of my tardis, brandish my magic wand*, and they'll fall apart"), so maybe it ought to be split over 2 nights (Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun)? It's in the wrong timeslot, anyway - it should come before Strictly!
*about time the Sonic Screwdriver went, too - occassionally well used, mostly just a crutch for lazy writing
Much as this case seems to scream "I'm an idiot, please give me money", I'm always slightly surprised that Lynx haven't been done for false advertising - it's ludicrous to claim that smelling like a teenage boy will make you more attractive to the opposite sex.
what noise does a football make as it flies through the air?
It's about time we implemented The Great British Bake Off, the way Norman Tebbit wanted a Cricket Test - if you're shown the Bake Off and don't enjoy it, you're promptly deported to somewhere far less British.
Then I read the comments, and realised that it is a terrible idea.
Still, would be nice to do away with SIMs, entirely.
does it have physical buttons, for page turning purposes?
About time Flava Flav got into the wearable tech market. I can see it now...
The flavWatch redifines the concept of the watch, as it is suspended from the users neck. It also emphaises its form, by being much larger than competitors' devices. Rather than incorporating WiFi, 4G, or fitness monitoring, it is a single function device - it tells you the time, upside-down.
I ordered my Nexus 6 from John Lewis. Good thing they have such a good returns policy, as I was shocked to find that it wasn't a Replicant.
