Smog-hit Beijing shows sunsets on a giant TV to remind people what the sun looks like

unwarranted triumphalism

An easy solution...?

If any smart-alec wants to suggest that Beijing use Boris' solution to particulate pollution -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15762967 - they can feel free.

Reg man inhales the smooth, non-cancerous, taste of USB nicotine

unwarranted triumphalism

Aren't e-cigs the same as...

http://www.nicorette.co.uk/products/inhalator ?

They claim it to be 'clinically proven'.

So do the Puritan Brigade find this more, or less, objectionable than the other e-cigs on the market?

unwarranted triumphalism

I see the Puritan Brigade have assembled...

Not that they have anything constructive to say, just the usual scare stories.

An e-cig helped me quit nearly 5 years ago and I have not used nicotine since, nor have I been tempted to.

But you're not interested in success stories, are you?

Re: Biased reporting...

In other words you have nothing, apart from a rather bizarre and meaningless insult.

Disappointing.

Cannabis can CURE CANCER - cheaply and without getting you high

Pathetic

...lies, absolute lies. The research says nothing of the kind. Cannabis remains what it always has been - a killer drug for unemployable wasters. It has no use whatsoever, except for the smell of it marking out the user as someone to be avoided.

Coat

Re: Hmm...

Upvote for the Doc Smith reference, it's the 1st thing I thought of when I saw the headline. Incidentally, at the end of the series ('Children of the Lens' I think) Boskone tried forging the Lens, but got it slightly wrong...

/Coat because I should put mine on and get out more

That's my favourite colour for controls. Ideally they should be completely black and light up in black on a black background when you operate them.

A South Park Reference...?

Just when I thought The Register could not get any more idiotic and immature, it pulls something new out of the bag.

Well done. How 'edgy'.

Telly psychics fail to foresee £12k fine for peddling nonsense

Re: Hilarious

'Religious believer in psychics, are we?'

No, just someone who is getting fed up with the Register's constant bashing of people's beliefs.

Hilarious

'...something neither of them saw coming'

Oh, pardon me while I split my sides laughing. That one never gets old.

What's next, El Reg, are you going to remind us that 'all religion is bunk', just so you can feel superior?

PayPal denies stiffing bug-hunting teen on bounty

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: Pulling a fast one.

So, first he lied to try and get the bounty, then you say it doesn't matter whether or not he lied, because PayPal can change the rules any time they want?

Which one is it?

Peak Apple: Yet ANOTHER supplier reports drop in demand

unwarranted triumphalism
FAIL

So it's true...

Apple is finally going down the tubes. Yet I'll still be accused of scaremongering, or compared to Michael Dell. Whatever, keep drinking the Kool-Aid, it'll run out eventually.

Well, if that's the standard of argument I can expect from the Palestinian lobby, I guess I'll just give up now.

Boffins build ant-sized battery, claim it's tough enough to start a car

unwarranted triumphalism

Prediction

I'd definitely like to see this productionised. Unlike some people who shall remain nameless, I think it will be in far less than 10 years.

Just think of it - electric cars with 1,000-mile ranges with small underfloor batteries.

And then the Vulture Central Oil Industry Defence Brigade will arrive - 'USELESS! The ONLY conceivable use for any vehicle requires 2,000 miles between recharges! This will NEVER be any good, scrap the whole idea NOW.'

Nanowires boost photovoltaics sunlight capture by 15X

Thank goodness

The fossil fuel and nuclear lobbies have arranged for their paid shills to come here and share their wisdom. How else would I find out that solar energy is completely useless?

No, I don't like MX-5s either. Why can't these people buy a normal car like everyone else?

No, we'll discuss it now. And if I see you in one of those things, I'll call the police - toys go on the pavement, not the road.

World's largest solar collection plant opened in Abu Dhabi

I wonder why that is.

Apple, Facebook, Google: Same-sex marriage 'a business imperative'
