you'd thought the BBC could spring for a Crown Vic rather than a 00ish Cadillac Seville.

only the warriors that captured the Dr and Clara were vikings not the whole village as its old Norse for people going to sea on an expedition. and the odin character seems to pinched Thor's helmet.

Re: Geothermal energy?
The US idea of a national park was a generally useless but pretty and natural piece of property far away from the cities where one could meet with like minded people and not be disturbed by dreadful people of the middle class (let alone the working classes) that could be maintained at the nations expense
if a use could be found for it, I'm sure it could be deparkified in short order.
one way to establish a credit history if you know you are coming to the US for a while before actually arriving is go to your current bank and use their contacts to transfer your foriegn cards into US cards, if you just turn up, you might have come from bongobongoland. amex probably works best for that.
same, mine would update the bios which stops the dvd drive from reading or writing to discs.
Re: the market doesn't always work
but this story is exactly the point, the market does work because customers demand better cheaper alternatives to what is already out there. the government does everything poorly because it doesn't care about price,
No you just choose to accept a stipend regularly instead of taking the risk of that surplus coming in later.
Re: Where to put it?
you try and shift those Americans. they might prove a bit more troublesome than the natives.

Re: The machine is not designed to detect things. It is simply designed to go “bleep”.
option c, staying loyal to Kiev, whoever was in power, had been rendered moot already
Here in the suburbs of Chicago, the Power co simply came and put one in. Didn't take long actually spent more time discussing an access panel on the meterbox that had pulled away from the chassis by a piss poor concrete pour when the house was built 38 years ago. They pulled my duct taping away but couldn't think of any other fix other than put their own on and said they would put an order in for a tech to fix it. believe it or not nobody has come back to look at that.
this thread might put you on the right path
Re: At least the French tended to name stuff after what is there.
Maybe they were feeling deprived of such after all that time in the wilderness.
"Apple has tweaked the iOS user interface to include a "one-handed mode" that can be switched on and off, for those with short fingers but who still like the idea of a phone with a larger screen"
you mean like cooking while reading the recipe on your phone?.

Re: The queues will get horrendous
And frankly its just made terrorism easier as they don't even need to get on the plane to have the same effect. Half a dozen deluded halfwits setting off suicide vest at the same time in the lines for security at different airports would have the same effect ie air travel being effectively shut down.

"The political standoff between the US and Russia over the latter's antics in Ukraine..."
There is probably plenty of murky hanky panky by all sides in that region. at the moment
yet their website says nothing about this change and still promotes their products as the only thing you need.

While religion is not entirely necessary to begin chopping people into little bloody bits, (although it has been know to assist ) a State of some sort definitely is essential.

Re: @Trevor_Pott: What have you been smoking?
trev, you don't know what a monopoly is do you? its regulation in favour of a firm or a number of firms,
social democracy is merely 50%+1 might is right. how does social democracy restain monopoly ? it can't because it hates heresy or choices. How does it drive margins down? by limiting choice and veriation, if the customer is allowed it at all.
Globalization, zero regulation by the state are postive boon IMHO and the last is problem caused by the state's monopoly over money and the financiers utilizing that monopoly to their own advantage.
Unfortunately for you, Somalia did do better as an anarchist region (obviously not first world better but of comparable nations) until the US backed Ethiopian Invasion of 2007 which prompted the El Shabab people to unhelpfully take up the standard of errm 'defenders of the people'.

Re: The Mossie
the Germans did have bunch of cheap tanks at the start of the war mark 1 and 2 and even the 3s which were completely useless at the start of the war.
Re: The Mossie
Amazingly and fortunately, navigating the Nazi military/industrial complex was infinitely worse than the Western Allies's version.
It would certainly be appreciated by African insects.

isn't that not having a big extremely pixelated screen, the HTC desire i had would last about a day with mostly everything running (except gps, that didn't work on that phone) and and that had a 4.2 inch screen and only a 1230 mah battery. talk time hmmph better measure is how many movies it will play before dying.
Re: Independant Scotland outside the EU... ha ha ha
Why is Spain held to be indivisible? Just because two nobs merged their family 'firms' centuries ago. doesn't mean the descendants of the subjects of the king and queen of Castile and Aragon must be held by that.
and as for Border stuff, just don't bother, let people come and go as they like the way they do now.
I 'm going to make a simple suggestion. Don't have a spooks nest, taxmen or a dole office.
RTM? Responding to moaning, perhaps?
Re: No wonder
You might be the person to ask. I once read that English would be 'better' if written in Cyrillic rather in Latin.
*I leave it as an exercise for you, dear reader, to decide which is a worse disadvantage. Having no broadband, or being Scottish...
and your data plan.
but on another note some pedantically, its not a 'wireless' thing, its a cable with an plug that charges inductively rather than inserting into a female socket (stop giggling in the back.)
after spending some time with it, i'm still not happy with the interface which as many have said is shit but the worst thing for me is the MS store which has bugger all apps in it compared to Ios and android and at ludicrous prices, Paying for the facebook and youtube app? piss off.
Same except i had a 4 year old to slide in an slightly open window, something your average burglar is not likely to have. (the whining doesn't stop)
Re: No great surprise...
thats an unbeliveable statement to make. At the time 06-07 in Baghdad, there were something like 3000 bodies turning up a month with many extra holes in them and you can't quite figure out why they are walking around with AKs' and RPGs.
