...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.
@Shrimpling - ...and they're late to that party, the Pegasus system is over 20 years old. The only thing I think they could beat it on is price.
...is paved with good intentions.
Dabbsy, you muppet.
Yay, Skipton :)
I assumed that this warning would take the form of a plume of smoke emitted from the battery (maybe a hissing noise as well) but the reality is less fun.
Moi, puoleensavetävä nainen...
...to the tune of £58 million.
"And we can burn as much of these as we like with impunity provided (a) we achieve clean burn, no nasty soot or carbon monoxide or hydrocarbon fragments"
This is practically impossible, there's no chance of controlling the mixture and flame propagation well enough to completely eliminate all of these in a piston engine, that's why catalytic convertors were mandated. You can minimise the undesirable carbon compounds by running a lean mixture but you make up for that by spewing out more NOx instead.
A fuel cell is the best bet for a clean hydrocarbon 'burn' because of the degree of control it gives you over the chemical reaction but then you'd get all the extraneous chemicals in affordable hydrocarbon fuels trying to poison or cack up the fuel cell.
Just had the bizarre thought that it's so big even the light in the photon sphere will take about 15 days to orbit it...
OKcupid is free for all (so you can message people for free) with charges for premium features. Core demographic seems to be twentysomethings.
The glove went for 1p, lol. I always inflate the postage charges slightly to cover the eBay and PayPal fees when I'm doing a penny auction otherwise you can actually lose money on a sale.
I've unloaded close a £1k of old crap on eBay over the years, including a solitary left glove I found in the pocket of a dead man's bike jacket that came with a bike I bought off autotrader. It's no harder to use (when you can actually log in to it) now than it was when I started. They even have promotions specifically for low volume sellers although you get bummed on the fees if you're not a business seller.
The only significant change for amateur sellers is the new postage pricing which will be handy once I've actually managed to set up all the prices, lol.
To me, it looks like 'traditional black farming' is just Mugabe's cover story. He's deliberately crippled agriculture (usually, when the farms get taken over they're gifted to one of his cronies and asset-stripped) and the monetary system in order to keep the populace weak and create a dependence on his regime.
Food scarcity ensures that people spend much more of their efforts on acquiring their next meal and less on things that might be detrimental to the regime a la the Ministry of Plenty and (this is a pretty wild guess) imported food should be easier to control the distribution of than locally-grown stuff, ensuring that regions with more Mugabe supporters get fed better.
Hyperinflation can also be worked to an advantage. The moment a trillion-Zimbabwean Dollar note is printed it starts to lose buying power. The older that note is, the less you can buy with it. This means that the people closest to the mint (Mugabe's followers) are automatically wealthier than people further away from it, thus creating a dependence on the Mugabe Bunch.
As other people have implied, this is exactly the opposite of what the pilot would be facing- not being able to get the nose up leading to the aircraft charging down the runway at 200mph.
I think that's pretty much what the plan is.
For bonus points, in BradMet the housing benefit cheques go straight to the landlord. That's how my housemate ended up paying rent (after he'd started a job) while his landlord was, unbeknown to him, simultaneously cashing his housing benefit cheques when BradMet comprehensively failed to stop his benefits after he told them he'd started a job. 3 times. Though he ignored my advice of telling them in writing by recorded delivery.
Out of him and the landlord, guess which one BradMet pursued for benefit fraud and demanded repayment from.
Full marks for creativity in your attempt to both inspire a reunion of another 90's group I want to forget and living out your sexual fantasy re. them.
It also gives you negative recall bias so you'll have difficulty remembering anything positive and your usual confirmation bias, combined with a depressed mood, will make you focus on anything negative and disregard positive things. It's not always as simple hearing nice things about yourself.
You can have everything and still not have your health, including your mental health.
