we can strip mine the rest of the solar system later, then the exoplanets.
There's a reason Northumbrian water is an "exporter" of drinking water to the sarf.
That would be Keilder reservoir.
was the password "dutchman" by chance?
oh sorry you said 20 years not closer to 30.
They'll be careful at first, testing everything in case that happens.
Then it'll be passed to someone who (is overworked/really doesn't care) and BOOM down goes the 10%.
Wow, you have absolutely no clue what auditing is, do you?
I have spent 20 years in audit (not all financial) and nothing sets my bullshit detector screaming as much as the fudging behind the numbers used by the CAGCC camp.
Here are your starters for 10:
Documentation for peer review (Lack thereof)
.. the watermelons to blame this geothermal melting on fracking...
So their investment in goodwill has more than paid off then.
Nice when that happens.
long poles (including bows) go diagonally from drivers rear over drivers side rear passenger to footwell of passenger.
I only have to deal with a 10' spear, my bows are nice short hungarian recurves and the tent poles are jointed in the middle courtesy of Blacks.
Mix your own underseal - Tyre paint + used sump oil + lithium grease
A generous coating and it NEVER EVER DRIES.
Worked wonders on my '77 mini.
- Police Line - Do Not Cross -
or DB Regio Tyne and Wear....
Ship it with bananas and they won't even notice the radioactivity...
or a (big) one at the end of the track and also power the infrastruture at that end, along with the town that would spring up around it to service the infrastructure.
Or put a big plant at BOTH ends, connect both ends to the respective grids and use the tunnel as way of selling excess power during off peak periods each way. Then all we need is to run similar grid links through the Chunnel, connect UK to Ireland, Ireland to the States, and we have a nice conductive loop running round the planet, what could possibly go wrong....
Solar storm anyone?
I'm sure there is a simple solution to that - circuit breakers and solar weather forecasts etc.
"plant a mental seed"?
Isn't that the Herpes virii that attach themselves to the CNS?
Translation: we were fudging the figures before, now we are fudging them less.
Anything but that godawful keyboard on the X1 Carbon would be great.
Where's the home and end keys? why is there no touch feedback from the function keys?
Why does the right control key want to be the insert key?
Ugh I hate it and am stuck with it for the next 3 years at work.
I think Iwould have called it BeEf curtains....
as in They're Still fucking Bennies.
or if you prefer :
They're still the fucking Falkland Islands you Argie twat.
Hmm I need coffee.
Only those who realise that a goldfish needs a LOT of space - we have 2 in a 150L tank - filthy buggers - goldfish need water changed more often than most other aquarium dwellers.
And the damn things keep destroying the plants, even if we feed them regularly.
However they do keep the snail population down :D
Goldfish are dead when they are floating upside down at the top of the beer glass.
I always thought adobe meant "half baked"
Thank you, I'll be here all week.
But it was London, and a school night.
Plus the buffet was probably 90% gluten :(
Here's to the RegLectures going on tour. (Cider ftw)
Ah, but the sausages are your genuine pig product.
Nappybags are a good way to dispose of the tissues and condoms, allowing snuggling/snoring without either of you staggering to the bathroom afterwards for cleanup.
First to go to the loo in the morning bins the bag.
So baby products are still handy without babies!
There's not enough carbon in the universe for it to be a tarball.....
Mines the ones with a pocket universe.
You mean there is a calculator on win 8.1 that isnt accessed through Start>Run>Calc.exe?
No I would state that cyber crims have far more morals than to stoop to using chuggers.
You mean like charities do?
1100 killed by police? Does that include those who chose Suicide by Cop?
I prefer 'necrotic'
a 5Kg bike needs a 20Kg lock and chain.
a 15Kg bike needs a 10Kg lock and chain.
a 25Kg bike doesn't need a lock.
"I would v much like to know what is behind the downvotes for my posts above "
Not me- I prefer to just argue.
Occasionally I'll even upvote a post I argue with just because it gave me something to argue with.
THinking again about this...
I'd extend it to exclude those who are politicians and those who work as civil servants.
Or we could go full Heinlein - only those who have done "National Service" get to have the vote -AFTER they have completed their term of service.
Funnily enough she didn't, she had to work albeit part time, but enough to pay NIC for 30 years. So she has contributed.
If all YOU have is 3 GCSEs then the immigrant with the degree is not stealing YOUR job.
Personally I'm glad the Conservatives won, I don't earn over £100k but SWMBO and myself (and junior for that matter) are better off now than we were in 2010 and I expect things to continue to improve.
This will get me the downvotes if nothing else will:
How about if you can only vote if you are either working/full time education or have sufficient NI contributions over your working life to entitle you to a full pension. If you're the ward of the state (i.e. on benefits) you don't get a say?
Make an estate variant and I'll have one.
Seems to be a distinct lack of HumINT.
Are these the same smartlocks the DMCA injunction relates to?
You are an Olympus sales rep and I claim my five pounds!
Yup... getting my coat.
Vote for RON!
10% over 7 years, really?
My ISA (share not cash) made 25% over the last 12 months.
Maybe you're doing the wrong calculations...
And there you have it.
The number of people contaminated was miniscule and so was the contamination.
Yes it can't be ignored, the lesson to learn is that the designed operating parameters were not capable of taking a once in 1000 years (10,000 years?) event, putting the gennys on the roof would help, as would building a bigger storm wall.
The other lesson is that anyone fostering panic for ideological ends should be beaten to death with their own pamphlets.
Take it as compliment that you made someone spit their dummy out.
Gratuitous Galactica quote - "There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people. "
The army are not there to stop Chavs breaking in and taking your stuff, they are there to stop the Russians/Argentinians/French(traditionally)/Germans(also traditionally) from taking all of our stuff, as well as being "Diplomacy of last resort".
Why not trap the CO2 and react it with sea water to get sodium carbonate/sodium hydrogen carbonate and just release that pesky chlorine into the atmosphere, after all it's not a carbon dioxide....
(Yes I know i'ts not that simple, but I cannot be bothered to look up the latent heats or methods of separation, though electrolysis seems to ring a bell....)
Two words for you - Black ice.
You let the car do the thinking for the driver and there is a large number of drivers won't think.
In theory I have a DAB radio in my C-Max, however it only worked for a month before deciding "computer say no" and it is just not important enough to take it in to spend the next six months getting fixed (based on various reports on fora - apparently the head unit needs replacing and the manufacturer only does exchanges, can take up to 14 weeks once the garage admit defeat and put in the request for a replacement head).
I do miss Planet Rock but a 16GB usb stick full of metal/industrial does the trick.
