Get yer kit orf....
Well really. With just about every TV programme adding to the UK w@nkfest with the obligatory and grauitous sex scene, what's a few dummies in the buff?
The excess oxygen would be consumed when the fuel produced from the algae is burned.
Or perhaps Paris Hilton will spontaeously combust.
Didn't Dawkins dedicate 'The God Delusion' to Adams?
I dunno why they just don't immediately introduce a police state. It'd save all this farce of 'public consultation' and parliamentary scrutiny'.
"Give us the authorisation for 90 days detention"
"Ooooh, there's 2000 terrorists in Britain. Honest."
Death to......err, Australia
re: Beyond those ugly neighbours are sundry other unpleasant pseudo-democracies who wish Australia no particular good.
Yeah. We poms *really* resent losing the ashes to a 5-0 hiding.......
Sorry if this loses the merkin contingent, it's a spat between _civilised_ countries.
Now if it had been a prototype flying car, you would doubtless have given it loads of coverage.....
@The British people don't have the intelligence or spine to stop it, sadly
Well within the lifetimes of a lot of ppl on this forum, oil production will start to fail.
Hence the need to be tooled up with Trident and have all sorts of controls and monitoring on the British public.
Then we'll see the _real_ purpose of all these anti-terrorist laws. The establishment will need to preserve their lifestyles at all costs.
Well at least with the present set up there are occasionally some decent (even if oft-repeated) programmes on digi.
Give it to that cnut Murdoch and it'll be wall-to-wall trash.
The direction's wrong...
..as for the last 25 years at least (YMMV), the British McEconomy has been in a race to the bottom, not the top.
Too little, too late...
@Proof at last
ITYM "40o proof at least".
Hope this helps.....;o)
re: Aw, c'mon ya limeys, ya know...
...that us Yanks will clone a mammoth first. Because "Bigger is better and biggest is best" is the American way.
Nonsense that's just a myth you like to peddle.
*We* always had a man-sized billion, not that wimpy thing you use.
Oh, and our pints are bigger than yours as well, which is handy for beer, not something you'd necessarily be familiar with.
That's proof then
The whole thing was a waste of time and effort and now NASA has acknowledged the fact.
@And only part of Finland
Ah, that'll teach you to not adopt the 1 and 2 centime coins then.
As far as I could see in Helsinki, these two non-circulated coins are one of your biggest exports.
re: more proof - if you needed it that americans are stupid and shallow.
Even as a Brit, I cannot accept that this is true. What is more the problem is that the majority of Americans are probably rarely given the chance to exercise their minds. And I must also admit that the same forces are at work over here.
@ Why would you not go digital now anyway?
I agree. In the sales blurb we were going to get an enormous range or programmes to suit every taste. What have we got? Recycled second rate US shows.
As we could have guessed.
So, with the known properties of beer (the cure for everything and an aid to all known happiness), and now this splendid news, it's obvious that the weekend diet should continue 7/7.
It's all a bit hypothetical...
.. as life will be gone from the earth in a billion or so years anyway.
I know it's a long time, but look at it this way: there isn't enough time to re-evolve to the present state from single cells, not even eukaryotes.
Still, it'll last *my* lifetime.
GB & kph
Actually, GB agreed to adopt the metric system as part of the treaty of washington which established greenwich as the prime meridian, and true to form, reneged on the deal.
State of Pollution
I must say that's a very unkind way of referring to New Mexico......
Looks more like the Paris Hilton to me.....
@Protocol IV says no blinding lasers allowed
You forgot Monty Pythons Joke of Death - the one that was so funny the enemy died laughing.
I think the plot of Titanic was summarised as:
"Rose!", "Jack!", "Rose!", "Jack!", " Glug!", "Jack?"
I believe that being drunk in charge of a bicycle is a fine and not an points-on-yer-licence job.
Space is cool, very cool
If you point towards the black bits, it's got a temperature of 4K, so a nice crinkly black radiator works quite well.
The trick is to remember that the other side will be pointing at the sun and needs to be covered up with shiny stuff to prevent it getting rather warm.
This about the romans growing grapes for wine in northern britain is all a load of tosh. They might have done, but the legionaires on hadrian's wall got their preferred plonk from Gaul, as was made perfectly clear in some of the vindolanda tablets.
The local stuff was probably for the roman wanabee britunculi who wanted to keep up appearances but couldn't afford anything decent.
Bit like today's brits who slurp australian grape pressings....
