Quis custodit custodes
Respect, Mr. Icahn. You are taking your rights as a shareholder serious and have real questions for the board. Shareholders are the ones who own the company and it is their responsibility to audit the board. Why should wazisname get away with sinking 700 mio? With shareholders taking more responsibility a lot more of this incompetent or even criminal behaviours would come to daylight.
Apart from almost single handly erradicating Polio YOU NUMB!!!
Well, that thing and a great deal of Tundra Perma Frost just melted away while the Athmosphere did not heat up "The last 15 years or so"?

Mate, you wouldn´t want to live in a (small) City where 50% of native inhabitants suffer of Tourette - Syndrom. Libre Office or not. They should have a border. 50m high and backfilled with concrete.

Re: I married an eye surgeon
So let me put this into one short sentence:
It is now realised that this affects peripheral vision and night vision without the subject being aware of the deficit, and we expect that at some stage (it wil be a while, this is HMG after all) there will be a slew of letters going out to those who've had this treatment (details obtained from the surgical logs under public health regulations, we are talking about the control of large metal things hurtly about the highways at speed) advising them that until they get these factors tested in an extended ophthalmic examination, and pass, that they no longer meet the vision criteria for driving and their licences are accordingly withdrawn.

LEGO vs. Playmobile
Playmobile created a shisma. Good old LEGO had to come up with an anwser and came out with kits and building plans. Before that it was bags of blocks in different shapes and colours. I remember that X-Mas when grandpa presented me with a LEGO kit of a scandinavian ferry of about 400 bricks. The neighbours boy received the Playmobile "Pirate Ship". Nothing to assemble, just there. We used the LEGO bricks to build a landing site for the pirate ship. Playmobile killed off a lot of creative challenge by providing a ready to use toy. Hence the lack of engineer students today. LEGO and Fischer Technik where the toys (tools) of the time. Playmobile killed it. Just unwrap it and play.
get over it. If would not have been for a recovered code book of a sunk U-Boot and the excellent work of some polish mathematicians Mr. Turing and the Bombe wouldn´t have gone anywhere.
Didn´t get the message
Must have been hit between the ears as well. Please Sir, let me go back and have the rest of myself being blown to pieces since it did not really work out the first time. Numb Nut. High Command must be laughing their balls off over idiots like him who happily limp back to the butcher´s. Well, better that way, then having this sort of guys hanging around in the local pub bloating about, what heroes they are. And definitly better then me being press ganged to step on a landmine in a country where the locals don´t want me to bring peace, democracy... (fill in).
What a moron

This guy´s selling skills must be off the top shelf.
To get into business with the likes who are running failed states like Iraq or Kenia there is no way around the "brown envelope", as its called in Uganda (another failed state). The UN does it, WHO and WFP do. He should be aknowleged for exposing this greedy, corrupt bastards on the opposite side of the counter. That these bastards are even considering to get away with such a fraud shows how "morally corrupt the society of a country in its self is"(citation of an Ugandan MP). For getting an IED or car bomb into the green zone of Baghdad it only needs some Bakshish or "I know, where your family lives" to pass the roadblock. Operational searching device or not. McCormick has outstanding sales skills and should be, if at all, sentenced to 10 years of shoe repairs and key copying. Well, he might own the company after he´s done his time. Business idea for free: Divining rods for minesweepers.

Re: Bloody Americans
stop whinging ...
There´s a ruling in NY that if one looks at its female coworker for more then 8 seconds its sexual harassement.
I wouldn´t even pass Immigration. My wife is of african orign and she is "Proud to be Black", my daughter insits of "Chocolate". Plus they are proud of their female assets and you are welcome to admire them (visualy) as much as you like. There has just been a case in Germany where a politician tried to chat up a journalist and she went completly off the tracks and public.
Back to the point: Being aged 13 there wasn´t a stripper who could shock me with anything anymore. And that was far before the interweb. Like:oh,it´s my 18th birthday but you are still only 17. we are shagging since 2 years now but the law says that from today on i have sexual intercourse with a minor. Nothing wrong for a 13 year old boy watching a female in a bikini singing "Happy Birthday". Goes home and has a wank (if he liked it).
I go whereever my company sends me , near, far, middle East, Eastern Europe, the Africas. But they accept that i won´t go to the U.S.A. It´s still a land of the free but until you put your laywers on the next pole all this O.J.Simpsons and "he looked at me in a harassing way" wont go away. And yes i am 13 and love to watch a stripper.

Re: Simple solution
"Plus my cat won't walk on my big clunky keyboard, but happily wanders all over the Mac one, and even sits on it. Makes a mighty fine mess of any document you might be writing if you happen to forget to lock the desktop before going to make a cuppa!"
Now some empiric study starts: Cats completly ignore pc keyboards but love to jump up and down apple boards and crap on it.
I´m not in the fruit´s business but friends are and they all have problems with cats shitting on their board.
I never go without at least two cats and PCs and the pussys never touch it.
Really worth a study

"Given the decades-long lifespan of some applications - particularly those licensed at $50,000 or more per seat "
For another $k 5 they will offer you an update ( just to go with the times) and a new contract. All this big system suppliers are only waiting for the next OS so they can sell "update kits" to their clients. The "New Version" of the app is then released halfway through the lifespan of the OS. So, u by o u dy while on the (not so)far horizons the next OS threatens to arise.
Re: Breaking News...Routers of Mass Distruction
No,that section is busy in the climate change denying/confirming departement now
The CIA just released a bulletin stating, they found evidence Huawei is using secret facilities in Northern Korea to produce Routers of Mass Distruction in support of Al Qaida.

1.Cisco is loosing market share big time. So they come up with this "chinese military backdoor" stuff and send their (hang them)lobbiests to Washington. Probably offering the US military backdoors in their own kit. Most likely its in there already since a long time and the US military,NSA ... whoever, is concerned of loosing control of the internet backbone if more and more Cisco kit is replaced by Huawei boxes.
2.Huawei is no longer copying Cisco ware but creating their own stuff which noone in the US is able to analyse or recreate. That´s obviuos since no such chinese military backdoor has ever been found by them. It scares the shit out of both of them. Cisco for having to face a competitor with reasonable prices and the Gov for having to face black boxes from which they don´t know what´s inside.
As for Cisco producing their kit in china: Move to russia hahahaha!
Say good bye
Set up a 4 kW/h blade,Charge controller/Inverter,2x200Amp/hrs Batteries and say good bye to your local grid provider and daily load shedding.Buy the shirt,wash it,iron it and watch TV while your neighbourhood sits in the dark.
The only way to go in developing countries. Look out to India, they have some phantastic products to get you going at more then reasonable prices. I once installed a radio station off the grid on 50m² solar panels in Northern Uganda. It´s broadcasting until midnight with 150km range. Growing power demands in developing countries will be satisfied by self sufficient systems as long as they are not controlled by lobby driven laws that don´t allow one to disconnect from public grid (like Germany). Now it turns political: The gouvernment wants to stay in "Power". Example Uganda again: Wherever their are riots, the grid gets shut down. DVB-T: Gouvernment does not need to go the radio stations and clip their antennas anymore, they just flip the switch and offline you are if they don´t like what your are saying.
Hang all Lobbiests and corrupt politicians!!
I never leave my earthbound dominium without a Leatherman and a MagLite strapped to my belt and a roll of tape in my pocket. Receiving some amusement at times for this habit but more often i put it to good use. So NASA sends there heroes up ther bare naked?

Re: So they are livestock farmers?
Most of the nesting kinds of ants are keeping herds of aphids.
You can watch it in your garden,set you´re not using any agent orange stuff to keep the buggers away.
Leave cutters don´t and safari ants don´t either,they´re just leaving scorched ground.
Leave your desk, go out in the garden,have a smoke and have a look at how great nature is in this tiny things you use to mindlessly trample to death.
Another astounding info: The biomass of ants is double the one of mankind on earth. Ants are the real rulers of the planet.
