USAF flying deathbot power-grab rebuffed

@ Gilbert

Horse pucky. It is that shape in order to contain Nyarlothotep, as any fule kno.

Was it? I always thought it was for Shub-Niggurath and its thousand young.. Of course having never seen either building or said Old one (with associated Shublets) I could be wrong.

US dial-a-warrant spy judge: don't trust President, feds

Re: Thats your problem.

"is completely your responsibility to fix you have your own counterintelligence agencies if they don't do anything to safeguard your privacy from foreign agents they aren't doing their jobs. This isn't really a game any government can afford to stay out of."

Alan, realistically that is not going to happen. The chances of the US allies CAs daring to fight the NSA/US Govt on this is zip.. nada etc. Even if they wanted to it would be most likely stopped from above. I mean lets face it the “coalition of the willing” (such as they are) are not really likely to make much of a stink about this even if their own citizens don’t like it. Didn’t stop them before did it.

So what's in a URL? The Reg URL?

Angus Lidstone

Stick with .co.uk

I like the fact that you have .co.uk as part of the address. Makes it obvious that it is a British website. Not that it would really make a diff to me if you changed the address. If you dropped the brit slang/humor and language idiosyncrasies I would be disappointed however.

Brit uploaders teach Yanks man-hug techniques

Angus Lidstone

Depends on where you are from

"America is, after all, the home of the inappropriate emotional display."

"Right. And who was blubbing about some poor sod who was shot dead in the Tube by British cops?"

Morely, what are you trying to say here? I am afraid it has completely lost me.

"Oh, and do go get some linguistic help. "Mana-a-mano" means hand-to-hand, you illiterate boob."

To spanish speakers and you pehaps. But the english (and probably other languages too.. cept perhaps for French :P) language is rife with stolen phrases/words that have their pronuciation or meaning twisted or changed to suit the locals. So I would contest that your "you illiterate boob" statement should be changed to "you regional illiterage boob", cos he makes perfect sense to me and others in my particular neck of the woods.
