"incompetence is not a problem that banning cleats could solve"
No, but enforcement of the Highway Code would.
As would plates, insurance, testing etc.
Prove you're not an incompetent lunatic all the time - just like drivers and motorcyclists have to before they get out on the road unsupervised.
The sooner they ban headphones on the road the better, nothing worse than the cyclist wobbling side to side infront of you completely unaware of everything except the ipod blaring in their ears.
Re: I've even been known to take the bust to work sometimes...
Where can I get I bust I can travel to work in?
Do I sit in the cleavage?
Re: deterministic qubit gates
As long as it does not violate causality by producing the output before the input.....

Re: "isn't as likely to react chemically..."
I expect it to oxidise rapidly - no I mean explosively in contact with 21% Oxygen atmosphere and a spark.

The correct tool for hunting boar is a spear.

Give them a civilianised (or at least demilitarised) version of BOWMAN*, assuming it actually works now?
Should be able to handle the data requirements, and all the development work (snigger) is already paid for.

Re: Don't laugh just yet.
If he promises to prosecute (or better yet, hang) Blair I'd vote for him.
I swore at the last election I would vote UKIP to keep Labour out, or Labour to keep UKIP out.

I thought it was Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka and Google... erm the Chocolate Factory
Re: Wonerful lady
From a fiver sir? Thank you!
Have you worn a kilt? Trousers are much cooler - even in October it was a definite case of the Bettys in a kilt.
(For those unaware of the spoonerism Betty Swallocks - shame on you!)
we can strip mine the rest of the solar system later, then the exoplanets.
Re: UK problem
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.
Put me down for 6 months...
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?
That would be a fine argument if it were reciprocal.
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)
I'm just waiting for..
.. the watermelons to blame this geothermal melting on fracking...
"I still recommend those guys today."
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.
Re: non-undersealed Japanese domestic market/grey UK
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.
That stripe... can just about make out...

Ship it with bananas and they won't even notice the radioactivity...
Re: "...you could put a (small) nuke plant onboard.."
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?
"Change in accounting methodology"
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.
Hmm something that stops BeEf from looking at your system...
I think Iwould have called it BeEf curtains....
The people living on the Falklands are called "Stills"
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.
Re: And how many people realise goldfish can easily live to 20+ years if looked after?
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.
Re: Quote from Wikipedia:

Thank you, I'll be here all week.
Wish I could have gone.
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)
Re: Street vendors ...
Ah, but the sausages are your genuine pig product.
Re: Welcome Back
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!

Re: Modern Applications
You mean there is a calculator on win 8.1 that isnt accessed through Start>Run>Calc.exe?
Re: Yes but...
No I would state that cyber crims have far more morals than to stoop to using chuggers.
Re: Yes but...
You mean like charities do?
Re: "WAY more cops get shot by criminals than the other way around."
1100 killed by police? Does that include those who chose Suicide by Cop?
Re: You don'r?
I prefer 'necrotic'
It's not about the value - it's all about the weight
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.
Make an estate variant and I'll have one.
