You're never going to get those minutes back!!!!!!!! Why not cancel your subscription?!?!?!?!?
Re: Re: Spanners Vs. Wrenches
We'll feed the spanner paradigm into the BuzzGasm Aggregator and see what happens. Can't guarantee to get you your spanners back, however.
Re: Re: Offensive to Brummies
Working for the Johnny Foreigner, eh? Just as I faaaawt, me old china, cor blimey, yer 'avin a giraffe, etc, etc
Re: Re: The simple answer is usually the obvious one
I heard the UN was considering banning loose Lego bricks as "domestic landmines". Too bloody right.
Re: Arapaho used Left-hand Screws?
I checked. Our Photoshop operator is campaigningly left-handed, which is why he pushed his sinister agenda. We've tied his left arm behind his back for a month, so that should keep things rightly right-handed for a while.
As for the 0.02%, that's compiled from aggregating screw stats from 2.4 million websites. Feel free to provide an alternative figure, with exhaustive proof, naturally.
Re: No mention ...
I believe the presence of footwear seals the vortex portal, although it's an unstable gateway reopened by the proximity of unclad feet.
Re: Just to make it interesting
That's a fine idea, assuming everyone launches from the same point at the same time. Hmmmm...
A good question. I think It'll just continue its lonely wanderings until floating into history.
40,000km if it travelled the equator, but since it didn't, and the distance is around 28,000km at 45 degs latitude, 25k sounds about right to me.
Nope - accusative plural of astrum is indeed astra.
Re: Re: MMXIV or 11111011110
"Pretty geeky"? It's the mutt's nuts of geekery, and no messing.
Re: When is the....
Yes, we have several ideas. Sadly none of them is at the moment more concrete than a sloppy slurry with a bit of gravel thrown in. When we know, you lot will be the first to know.

We are a broad church, with tentacles across the world.
Re: Re: Vote?
The poll's at the bottom of the article. If you can't see it, there's something wrong at your end.
Our condolences and thanks for the submission, which is a worthy contender.
Re: might of been?
Re: Any non-Latin in with a shout?
We have non-Latin submissions. Await the final vote and wonder, oh multilingual commentard.
Re: pedanteria maxima .... or "morositas maxima",rather, mustn't mix my Italo-Latin ...
I'm going for a declensionless Anglo-Latin fusion. Works for me.
Re: Re: WD-40
I think not. Well spotted.
I will, thanks. Take one yourself for the being the first to spot that.
I'd be happy, really.
Yes, we'll do a vid. Watch this space.
Yes, we've certainly got the Right Stuff on our side.
Fair point. Longest record, naturally.
I like it. Good plan.
Re: world's remotest outcrop
Not so - Rockall is the remotest single islet, as far as I can tell. Bouvet Island has a few small islets of its own off its coast.
Re: "The question of how this...keeps appearing out of nowhere has been haunting us for over ten years"
Your guess is as good as mine ;-)
God alone knows. The question of how this and similar rubbish keeps appearing out of nowhere has been haunting us for over ten years. It's a complete mystery.
Re: "Burrito meets soft taco in alleged rooftop romp outrage"
Thanks. I'll head to the fridge right now...
Re: Or just the classic....
Pilae Ad Parietem? We're going to need a Latin expert to check all these mottos.
Re: Re: How about....
Indeed, yes it should.
Re: Re: How about....
Per cervisiam ad astra. Speaking of which...
Re: Superb stuff but Gopro3's grrrrrr
We've had battery problems. Our solution was never to use the damn thing again.
Re: What are those plaques in the piccy?
British government plaques, although I think Greenpeace put something up there too. We were too busy being extremely pleased with ourselves atop the rock to bother with flag-waving plaquery. "Get oorf moi rooock" would have been a good move, though.
Re: Re: more of Katarina please!
Yes. Bear in mind my daughter is 12 years old, so let's keep it clean, eh?
Re: But the demanding public need to know...
Time to 'fess up. We did buy a novelty latex starfish ice cube tray - €1.
Re: LOHAN link suspect
Should be http://reg.cx/1Uyg - extra "e" there.
Re: Re: Looking good
I'll look into it.
Your concerns are noted, and we are addressing. As I've said, everything will be bolted, lashed or epoxied.
Re: Looking good
Oh yes, epoxied in place for the main event, in common with everything else which can't be lashed down, bolted, etc.
Re: BBC at it again
Well, fair play to 'em anyway.
Re: Re: Playmonaut Safety...
Oh ok then, we'll install an airbag. Might as well put a cup holder in while we're at it.
Fair point. I'd suggest an autopilot is a factor.
Re: Re: Prevailing winds
Fair enough. Suffice it to say, I wouldn't dangle anything off Rockall, no matter how well lashed. Except maybe an effigy of Rolf Harris, as an offering to Davy Jones.
Re: Re: Prevailing winds
Too true. Mercifully in this case, having been atop the sacred islet myself, I am in an unassailable position of correctness regarding podule pitching.
Re: Prevailing winds
That's not possible, unless you fancy dangling from a cliff face. The ledge he's on is the only plausible site for pitching a pod.
Re: Re: Or
Understood. I'll factor in the taxi fare then and report back on how much I've saved over backing this on Kickstarter from the comfort of my PC.
In my case, that would involve a flight to Britain and a train to Skegness. I can walk from the station to the pier, though, so I've saved a taxi fare.
Au contraire, mon ami. The fact that it's theoretically possible means it's imperative to make it happen..
