Pretty sure Schmidt also says his own results aren't that useful. The numbers are more or less plucked out of the air.
Closer to an episode of Jackass IMO.
Just because it happens in a lab don't make it science!
It's criminal that Bong only has 300 followers on Twitter!
Re: « Films about people sitting at computers have always been a hard sell »
Good shout. Also the film that introduced me to the Stones (I'm still well short of mid-life :))
"You don't get to see such a total shambles of a game get to full release that often."
Aliens: Colonial Marines; this very year. Utter toss it was.
Re: Icon says it all...
Same for me. Dabbsy's surpassed himself there!
Well said fella.
Re: "Sony wasn't forgetting its older-platform customers"
"Give it a year, and I'd say there'd be no more game releases for the PS3"
FIFA14 is being released for the PS2 next month apparently.
Re: You had to explain the meaning of exoplanet?
A planet with its core on the outside?
I was lucky enough to visit when it was still Renault, very cool site!
Photos were off limit most everywhere, except one room where they had notable cars. The difference between Prost's motor and Schumacher's Benneton were pretty striking!

You know when you've been tang-oed!
Interesting article, one of the few times I've regretting eating lunch whilst doing so though...
Cricket vs Baseball
Run up vs standing throw - surely that has some effect?
Re: Fruity fruity fruity
I always liked 'the Foxconn rebadging firm'
Although there's a lot that could be described the same way!
Re: What a load of bollocks.
Since when has bloke been an insult?
Cnut was a King of England, Denmark and others way back when. He was succeeded by Harthacnut, who was only 50% as nasty.
Re: Is it just me...
Personally I place the Bong articles in the 'brilliant content' category. Up there with Stob for me!
Each to their own though :)
Re: Loss of long term renting
Sorry, that should have been:
It's so the agents can charge you and the landlord £200 each every 6 months to change the dates on a contract.

Granary, toasted both sides, then a lick of butter, mature cheddar, worcester sauce & a sprinkle of pepper.
Served with tea, natch.
Re: Cheese on toast and the history of computing
And you didn't even have the good grace to use the 'get my coat' icon. Tch.
Re: Been running Adblock Plus for years...
Because you're not used to it. The rest of us have our own in-built Adblock now :)
Your TV is a webserver and a print server?
Re: Black Sheep is not a Peter Jackson film
But his company Weta Workshops were heavily involved.
And it's more or less a remake of Brain Dead, which actually is Peter Jackson's best work.
Re: Correct Horse Battery Staple
I do wonder if CorrectHorseBatteryStaple has made it into the top 10 most frequently used passwords yet.
So it'll actually be released sometime around 2022?
Re: "should this one ever die"
Agreed. My Model M is older than I am!
Ok, thanks for the clarification.
"some of the positive charge on the insect may transfer to the plant"
It's been a while since I did it at school, but doesn't electricity work the other way round?
Re: SimTower + Streets Of Sim City
Man, I thought I was the only person who played SimTower!
Gutted when I lost the disk :(
SCART was the work of Satan.
USB's just one of his kid's school homework projects.
Re: The gist
Sounded to me like they were discussing breakfast, or last night's football!
Another day, another meteorite...
Re: Classical Underworld?
Ah, missed that, was thinking no one had used it yet!
Got to be Slippy & Cowgirl.
Re: You can see our house from up there!
Do you two live next door to me or something?
It was, until they bought Alienware. XPS is more the 'Premium' brand rather than performance nowadays.
"Is there a reason you've totally hidden the "comments" box?"
Top left. So that those who want to make reactionary uninformed comments without reading the article don't have to scroll to the bottom :)
Re: I just don't get it...
"fuck the people sitting next to me"
Be rude not to, really.
Re: "If Elop was not a Trojan horse, then he would have kept Symbian and Meego alive"
@Eadon: "Elops destruction of Nokia only makes sense if he's a trojan horse, nothing else fits."
Seems odd that you'd make the assertion that Ballmer is doing the same thing to MS, and then come up with that in the very same thread!
Why not say:
Ballmer's destruction of Microsoft only makes sense if he's a (Linux/Unix/open source) trojan horse, nothing else fits.
Re: Thanks, Ace.
It'll taste almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.
Correct, they're referring to the online lesbian magazine.
26 for me
Which seems to put me much higher up the list than I'd expected!
Re: Good review...
Easy explanation for lack of fauna - any species that run towards explosions/gun fire/big metal exoskeletons have become extinct. The fauna's there, it's just heading rapidly away from you :)
Loved the 7th Guest
D was good as well, although I suspect it hasn't aged well.
Half Life gave me a few jumpy moments, and the Ravenholm level in HL2...
The opening of Bioshock, where you're trapped in the Bathysphere had the heart racing too!
Re: Still no Zombies?
There were loads out last night. Killed about 15 of them myself. Dunno why they were all carrying sweets.
In these cases, I tend read 'Hacked'
as mate got hold of my phone & stitched me up...
Always worked for me. TIFKAM is too much of a mouthful too.
Union Flag parachute, Lotus, Underwater Lair, Sharks, Jaws, Barbara Bach and Caroline Munro (mmm Naomi). Not to mention a cracking theme song :)
Ooo forgot how good that track is... Hope it's on Spoitfy!
Re: I followed that link to the past excuses.
Lost a 2-week old pair of Raybans once this way.
Funnily enough, I've not done it again since!
That website's horrific
And why are the 24-month mobile broadband prices higher than the 18-month?
Re: Bullshit pricing
It's not a Bethesda title - they're just publishing it.
Arkane Studios are the development team.
Enjoying it so far, do keep thinking at points that Batman: AC was more fun though.
