The Deluxe is the one with real hair, isn't it?
How could I? There was no option to select Ethan Hunt.
I thought it was "The internet, where men are real men, women are also real men and children are the police"?
If you claim to have deleted my records completely then your sales department phones me up, then either you're lying about deleting records or your company is cold calling. Either way, if you think I'm an idiot for being angry about that you can go fuck yourself.
E: Doctor Syntax - you'd be amazed how many companies give zero shits about the TPS. They get around regulations by claiming it's a market research call so they can claim you consented to receive the sales pitch if you answer any questions, or by saying each time they call that they're very sorry, it was a mistake and they'll take you off the list (which wears thin after the third or 23rd time, but hey - they didn't know, they just have a list). That's assuming they don't simply base their call centres outside the UK, or not give their number and/or company name so you can't even file a TPS complaint.
They chose it based on commonality of use. I forget if it was just the two most popular girls names that year or the names most commonly used by women being anonymous, but you could probably Google it.
Match.com bought OKCupid a little while ago. If you had a profile there they may be trying to persuade you onto the paid service.
Please do not recommend Exploding Kittens to anyone, ever, not even ironically. Not even if you hate them. It is terrible in every way.
it's not flat(!!!). The circuit is a figure eight, so it couldn't be flat without terrain rises - which are clearly visible in the photo anyway.
I can't tell from the angle if Eau Rouge is on the circuit, unfortunately.
So you missed the bit of the article where the writer linked to a past El Reg article about Foxconn workers threatening suicide at a factory assembling XBoxes? Perhaps you didn't read it, because it wasn't about Apple.
Well, I suppose the huge wealth makes up in some small way for having to hang out with Mark Zuckerberg.
It will be better In that it will reduce the price of X99 systems, but it's not worth getting. Performance improvements under low stable overclocks are apparently only 2-3% over Haswell-E.
There was a game called Re-Volt released some time around 1999 that might scratch the itch. It's basically Micro Machines crossed with Stunt Car Racer; the "plot" is that the remote controlled cars in a department store come alive at night and drive around the store. The physics model is interesting in that the cars have been modelled to have very little weight, so the feeling is of driving an RC car. Comes with a track designer, too.
He's a diamond in the rough, and something entirely different on the green.
It can go in the same box as your Ouya. At last, value for money from that project!
Really? Damn. I guess the Tories will just have to cut even more public services and sell off the NHS even faster. Of course that haste means they won't be able to negotiate the best deals, so their rich mates will be paid more and buy for less, but that's a sacrifice they're willing to make.
They didn't say "no foul play", they said "no evidence of foul play". It's an important distinction. What they mean is there were no signs of forced entry, no injuries on the body, no indicators of poisoning or OD and so on. So until they have a post mortem indicating that Greenberg might have been murdered, they're not starting an investigation.
That's not the Kim they'd rather avoid mention of.
This is only happening because the MPs want them to play games on, and the S6 range have been selected because they want to get that unique card back for Hearthstone.
In 2011 Reddit had to be pressured into removing a number of subreddits like r/jailbait for posting content that was legally classified as child pornography. If that's freedom of speech, you can keep it.

"Mr Notspartacus, you stand accused of firing multiple shotgun blasts into a 100' hot air balloon shaped like the head of Tony Blair, causing thousands of pounds of property damage and a serious public disturbance. There are twenty-seven witnesses to you performing these acts, and the police found you with the shotgun still in your hands. And yet you continue to protest your innocence. How can you possibly justify such a claim?"
"Your Honour, I thought it was the real thing."
"Case dismissed." *thunk*
Then I'm out. God, that show turned into a trainwreck.
The reason everyone looks like a mugshot in a passport photo is because you're commanded to do the same things - look directly at the camera, do not smile - and they use the same plain white background to highlight your face. It's intentional: the object in both cases is to make you easily recognisable from the photo.
Stabbing Southrons when they exhibit contempt for the North.
You mean Paedogeddon 2011 wasn't a real shitstorm?
So nobody's seen it in seven years? No wonder it's so pale.
Album's out and the songs are lame
All of them sounding just the same
Gwyneth Paltrow sucked my dick
But I still whine till it makes you sick
Singing "Nyeeerrrrrr .... waaahhhhh"

The IT angle? You can't spell "SHIT" without "IT".
Which is another reason why Indy is important in the movie.
On the other hand, it hardly needed a huge long discussion to determine that The Big Bang Theory is unfunny moronic shit that grossly misrepresents every aspect of the subject and people it depicts. For that it gets the nuclear blast icon, from which it shall not receive even the dubious protection of Dr Jones' refrigerator.
And she'd no doubt get her just desserts.
I don't like that recipe. As they say in Italy: needs more-a salt.
(Yes, yes, that one was even worse.)
If that's a euphemism for masturbation, you will be of great interest to medical science. Either they'll want to find out why you're not made as most men, or they'll want to find out how someone can type coherent sentences while being unable to count to two.
I must be missing something here. Nobody I know writes down emojis, so surely anyone seeing four of them on a Post-It would immediately know it was a password?
Though he did famously tell Peter Jackson on the set of Lord of the Rings that "that's not how you stab someone".
One interesting fact is that Lee worked with Ian Fleming in the SOE. It's believed in some parts that Lee was part of the inspiration for James Bond: a man capable both of performing commando raids and moving in the upper echelons of society without looking out of place.
Sir Christopher Lee. Movie star, stabber of Nazis and heavy metal god. Ave atque vale.
Don't forget there's also a 55" version. Useful for the people who are interested in the Surface Wall but would prefer a device that will fit in their pocket.
(What? If you can spend $7000 on a tablet you must have extremely deep pockets.)
All those Floyd puns and you couldn't come up with "up against The Wall"?
He probably wants to have sex with it.
Nah. Dude may have fished, but he was fly.
Without that particular feature the wrist action of the title is unlikely to happen, no?
Regarding the above "fail at science" comment: it was an error made while typing in haste. Of course it is the Y chromosome that induces male characteristics. Still, it's a mistake anyone could make - X is the one with the extra leg, after all.
The default template for the sensitive bit between your legs is the clitoris; it's the X chromosome that carries the "corrupted data" that modifies a clitoris into a penis. So technically, it's both a feature and a bug.
Actually there's no reason not to. According to the blurb, Win10 will download automatically when it's released (3GB) but will not automatically install. So, you can grab your free OS in case MS close off downloads before SP1 is released.
Check your taskbar. I got a notification asking me to pre-register for free upgrade this morning.
Well, at least there's one small advantage to having a lawyer on amphetamines...
I assume you mean the Hurricanes? UKIP will want to send the Eurofighters back where they came from.
I think the solution is letting coppers moonlight as sex workers. Then wealthy men won't have to worry about being fatally fixed by their companion for the weekend, because they'll have a police escort.
Well, I'm sure car thieves will be reassured to know that they're not illegally jamming the locks.
It's not a typo, it's your lack of grammar. Pterry's popularity is not in the past tense. Sadly, the man himself is. The GNU is just the technical equivalent of a man not being truly dead so long as he is remembered.
Which reminds me of the old Rowan Atkinson piece:
"Gone, but not forgotten. It could be worse. You could be gone and forgotten. Worse still, you could be forgotten and NOT DEAD."
Maybe it's a speed run?
Sorry, you lose - it was Colonel Mustard in the Command Centre with the BFG-9000.
(Which joke makes me wish for a moment that there was a Doom-themed Cluedo.)
Evidently not, because it's IDDQD and you were replying to a post with it in.
