Is my vote for the mountains on Pluto.
The fish is nice. The Tri Franskur (I might've misremembered that) restaurant still serves whale, owing to the owner buying 2 tonnes of it just before whaling was banned. I should've tried puffin the last time I was there but it didn't occur to me till afterwards.
There's also plenty of vacant buildings left over from the boom.
A few other things I gleamed from a documentary about them (so decreasing the credibility) was they lacked the ability to verbalise as well as sapiens (they couldn't produce the same range of sounds) giving them inferior communication abilities and didn't organise themselves into groups as large as human ones. They had much bigger occipital lobes than humans so they're presumed to have better eyesight, though that seems like a bit of a phrenological conclusion.
My parents last 2 Fords (Focus & B-Max) all switched to gph on the instantaneous fuel consumption display when the car was stationary. From this I learned that Ford auto boxes waste 2x as much fuel when you're stationary and idling in D as they do in N.
He has mousey hair but no. No oblique Nazi references, I'm afraid.
My friend in naming his currently unborn daughter Arya... better than Khaleesi, at least, or Sansa*
When some goof found that acrylamide was poisoning cattle and decided to ring all the church bells. Shortly after someone found that humans can tolerate a much higher concentration (I think it was orders of magnitude) of acrylamides in our food, probably because we've been cooking it for so long.
Add gaseous ammonia to that list; as soon as it touches a wet part of you it hydrolyses to ammonium hydroxide. It'll kill you in under a minute by stripping the flesh out of your lungs. It's also a lot easier to get hold of and store than fluorine.
Then there's NOx where you can get a fatal exposure and not even notice till 8 hours afterwards.
...oral herpes, oral gonorrhoea, HPV-induced oral cancer...
The brothel had the wrong type of grass.
That works both ways round. I bought a monitor from amazon.es 'cos it was cheaper than it was on amazon.co.uk.
If you don't have remote central locking, you don't have this problem, though I went as far as buying a car where the central locking is only operated from the driver's door :S
The only thing I've noticed about them is they consistently try to sell me something I've just bought or sold (yes, sold) on eBay.
misread it as "Facebook is VIOLATING your SEXUAL potency"
Melted power sockets sounds impressive.
...about a month ago when the weather turned warm enough that I didn't need to heat my flat.
Probably, I stumbled on that term in the encyclopaedia dramatica.
Obliges the fifty Hitler post, or it would if I could post images.
They're just trying to skew their userbase a bit more towards teh yoof.
...perped by the financial institutions we'll have them locked in an ASIC arms race trying to do a 51% attack.
Certainly not the x-ray dose you'd get from the accretion disk.
You have a house with 2 grid/mains connections?!
On the plus side I can work out how much space it'll take up by putting my fist in my pocket, it's about the same cross-section.
...and the US didn't have issues like the Jake Walk and spiralling organised crime during prohibition.
But yeah, there's no right answer.
I assume that's meant to be the highest skill level in that table.
4chan has a revenue stream?!
Thus 8chan was begat.
Also, did anybody else notice the coincidence between encyclopaedia dramatica being shut down and the emergence of Anonymous? It's like a cohort of bellends suddenly had nowt to occupy themselves...
I remember that appearing on bridges over various roads for years after that game came out.
"What you say?"
That's exactly what the Investor State Dispute Settlement chunk of TTIP does.
For maximum crockery nerdage. The graduations on them are the best bit.
Do they have Trill? Irathians? Castithan?
I've had a PC with a microswitch built into the case that was triggered when you took the side off it, I think it logged an event in the BIOS or somet'. Presumably it's the same sort of thing for a rackserver.
Yes but you don't have to buy a new $2.5B plant every year. Assuming a lifespan of 20 years (and also ignoring the ongoing maintenance 'cos I've no idea how expensive that would be, except that it won't be $2.5B/yr) that brings it down $330/ton of avoided CO2 which is still pretty eye watering though it seems to be in the ballpark for the retail price of bulk coal in the UK.
"armed with M-16s (or similar)"
It'll be a SiG 550, Switzerland's home-grown assault rifle.
"for IOS anyways from what I've read it seems the contents on the phone are encrypted, but contents stored in icloud are not encrypted in the same manor"
Indeed, they're stored in the shooting lodge.
I like milk.
Google it. Pretty expensive, though :/
The wood fired plants are doing well because it allows them to hit their CO2 targets with minimal changes to the machinery. There isn't enough land mass, let alone arable land, on the planet to provide all of humanity's energy needs via biomass.
Also, photosynthesis is far less efficient at capturing energy than photovoltaics and you have the added inefficiency of converting the heat from burning the plants into electricity.
...don't recall Vulture One being rocket powered.
Yeah but try intercepting and docking with it. Just lofting enough fuel for all the manoeuvres would be an arseache.
I find it interesting that all the CO2 makes a beeline for the North Pole in winter, might be something to do with the greater degree of melting up there vs. the Antarctic.
...will be an increase in the number of wildfires started by lightning, esp. as the researchers claim that precipitation will not increase as much.
"Alim-Louis Benabid, Joseph Fourier University, for the discovery and pioneering work on the development of high-frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS), which has revolutionized the treatment of Parkinson’s disease."
My dad had one of the first DBS units implanted in the UK (he was in a clinical trial) and it gave him about another 8 years of mobility.
I think you meant to use the 'Joke Alert' icon.
ABS came from the aviation industry where the braking is almost always heavy, the runways are not always dry and, proportionally, you're stopping a car that's fitted with the wheels from a mini-moto.
Mmmmm... Dr. Czerski.*
*I suspect that was the effect that the Director of Programming intended.
