Have two facebook accounts.
* One with loads of stuff about Nietzsche, 17th century choral music, wallace and grommit, and oxfam.
* And one with pictures of your bum grafted onto cherie blair's neck.
I've seen him from both sides...
Belfast, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester
No real surprise there. All done on population numbers, I suppose.
It would have taken real intelligence to realise that there is more disposable income in Poole/Bournemouth, more chance of creating new employment in Plymouth, or more cultural need in North Wales or Norfolk.
Frankly, I'd have thought London, Manchester, and perhaps Edinburgh were rich pickings enough to have funded this with revenue, and not needed tax money.
good proof point that this is actually real stuff
yes, this is what their real stuff actually does.
The worst I've paid to see is Starship Troopers, but I've had exposure to Battlefield earth and it is a stinker.
But I've twice had to sit through 'raise the Titanic' and it is in a league of awfulness that I hope is its own. Lower the Atlantic, it would be more believable.
And then there is Schiphol.
If you go from non-Schengen to Schengen space, you have to open the laptop to prove it has a keyboard and has not been hollowed out.
If you go the other way they don't want you to do that.
Re: Oh the old petrol station turn mobile phones off drama lama
The cell phone ban is, I suspect, left over from the CB radio ban.
Because some early electronic devices (are you listening Dresser) could be zeroed just by keying a 25W transmitter next to them, garages put up spurious "transmitting can cause an explosion" notices, and the meme appears to have stuck.
'course, the transmitters were not the problem in the first place....
There is some wooliness in most things on that list, ut when we come to
"Groupon applies refunds policies and cancellation rights in accordance with the Distance Selling Regulations."
That seems to have been a demonstrable breach of law that should have been prosecuted, not discussed.
on a donkey?
Just the one?
Poor bloody beast.
I sat opposite him on a train back from the Liverpool garden festival. I am less than svelte, he is, well you know. The carriage wrecked a wheel bearing under where we were sitting.
With Satre, the vehicle in front controls its followers
And, yes, the vehicle in front will be driven by a bulgarian halfwit trucker who has not slept for 78 hours, consumed several bottles of strong lager to keep awake, and will cheerfully turn down a railway line because he does not understand his satnav.
"The team is now looking at practical applications"
Make a tiny submarine and send Stephen Boyd & Raquel Welch through someone's bloodstream?
@Mike Richards ('western' fan?)
I have driven a petrol hydraulic car It was french (wocab) - either a renault or citroen - made in the 1950s. It had a constant speed engine, a variable stroke hydraulic pump, and variable stroke hydraulic motors in each wheel, Pump and motors had swash plate variable stroke mechanisms, operated by cables from the 'throttle'. and it could (with the crude swash plate limiter unscrewed) go as fast backwards as forwards.
The one I drove also had a 25 litre drum of replacement hydraulic oil and a suitcase full of replacement rubber seals in the boot. It never went a week without popping something and dumping all the oil on the road in milliseconds (that's what pumps do!).
the iPurse - contains money that can only be spent on iThings.
the iNurse - robotic child minder shaped like Steve Jobs, with a calming voice that says "nanny knows best" whenever signs of of intelligence break through.
the iCurse - a portable device for practitioners of witchcraft.
the iTerse - speech synthesiser that reduces whole sentences to bad-tempered single words.
the iWorse - USA's next president.
all been said
I came here to comment on the headline, but feel I have nothing left to insert.
But they can't be trusted.
I've been paying a premium for a premium service for some years, and discover they have invested nothing at all, not even in LLU.
I'm going to sidegrade to a cheapo service now, it won't be any worse.
Bit of multipath going on there, I reckon.

And, of course, they are Hertzian waves anyway
He has changed my mind
It is worth listening to world leaders when they have something to say.
I was ambivalent about WikiLeaks, and about Assange, but if that c*nt is opposed to it I am going to become a true believer.
surely it would have been remarkable if Google got a picture of a french street with no-one pissing in it?
Zn is -0.76 and iron is -0.44 on the electrochemical series, so a Zn-Fe battery ought to about do it.
"variable precision floating point unit"
I thought Intel did that once before?
I have postponed a laptop upgrade for some years now because I didn't want a worse screen.
2 minutes to first stage separation? that's quite a bumpy ride right there.
I'm old enough to remember Britian putting up a satellite with Black Arrow. I wonder how this compares?
I've invented a thing I call a 'transistor radio' that lets you live stream popular webstream stations without the internet. Might Google buy that from me?
Startpage is nice and simple.
yes, surely to goodness they have bought enough stuff down the years?
I was thinking of the Domesday disks...
No save point to restore from?
I don't really care
He made some dosh, and paid his taxes. No news there, surely.
Yes, people have paid rather more per kg for his bubble, but I didn't , so I don't really care.
This is non-news, and we get enough of that from the BBC.
