A barium enema should do it.
however, it could do them a better turn just to 'fess up - throwing a hissy fit over succeeding judicial rulings just seems a bit bratty to me. Guys, you were found to have your 'hand in the till' as it were - take the smack, say you're sorry like you mean it & don't do it again!
So do I take the red pill or the blue pill?
Pure PR cheese. To quote Bill Hicks - "...if you're in marketing or advertising ... kill yourself. No, really..."
It seems that Mr Jobs' 'reality distortion field' still has some residual effect.
So, technically speaking, Apple are starting this new service with the same methods some drug dealers use to create a bigger client base. Way to go Apple!
Unconsidered greed approaching black hole proportions.
Time to roll out this handy reminder again, methinks.
"The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators at a major U.S. research university. The element, tentatively named administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.
Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second.
Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.
Research at other laboratories indicates that administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.
Scientists point out that administratium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising."
First prize for best use of an oxymoron in an article about US agencies.
...will always get messy!
Bacterium & microbes surely are the most versatile survivors known - with the exception of Keith Richards & Lemmy Kilmister, of course.
If that crowd make any music that doesn't sound like processed cheese, I might consider a purchase or two. Until that day - not bothered.
...this is how you charge it!"
I nearly bought one of those CSIRO modem routers by mistake - good thing I looked!
a German language word meaning "over", "above" or "across". Of late, possibly referring to their attitude & regard towards some nations' laws.
& I'll bet he's feeling like a right one, 'n all!
Looks like Gene Munster is ready to make a spectacle of himself again.
(Sorry, it was so obvious, I HAD to use it! Leaving now...)
What does that even mean - "un-American" ? That's so ... naff!
fair fear trial."
Would be a more accurate description.
"Nobody suggested that the story was inaccurate, except the PM who said it was inaccurate before it came out"
So, in politicalspeak, I think that means the story is on the money - thanks for that confirmation, Mr Key.
Analysts - PML!! Thanks for that - it's been a hard week & I needed a good laugh.
Yes, beat him! Hold him upside down & shake him until his brains run out of his ears & some more useful internal organ slides up to fill his empty skull - his spleen prehaps.
Doo y'all need sumwun tuh explainify 'privacy' tuh yew?
Wherever there is a singular focus on money as a primary measure of value, everyone loses.
Beyond stupid. Fuck off right now.
It's the CIA - you weren't REALLY expecting any authenticity, were you?
Beer because it's more satisfying
I tried a few & settled on an app called "Find Any File" which i find quicker & more convenient than spotlight. Very flexible, and has helped me do a comprehensive delete of apps & ALL their associated files that some uninstaller apps and Spotlight have missed.
I've always been suspicious of spotlights need to 'index' drives in order to search them. I've always used 3rd party search apps that seem far more able than spotlight, & deliver more comprehensive & useful results (for me at least).
"The US government blames North Korea for the attack..."
Is there room for another reg. measurement standard? Because I'd like to suggest a measure to help gauge the veracity of US intel/enforcement agencies' accusations of guilt based on flimsy to no supporting evidence.
This unit should be known as the 'bollock' (abbr: BOLX). The degree of BOLX detected could be prefixed with the standard indicators mega, giga, tera, etc, For example the current FBI accusation against the Norks could be a benchmark of ... hmmm... maybe 1 gigaBOLX?
Your thoughts, people.
So the FBI 'claims' that the Norks hosed Sony & have supporting evidence to back up said 'claim', but are unable to reveal it for ...what? ... "reasons of national security" - that old chestnut again?
Please stop jerking off in front of the public & just fuck off, already.
Sony gets a bucketload of free, workable publicity (good & bad, spin doctors to massage) on the cusp of releasing what is, in essence, an inconsequential, and (realistically) puerile movie. No consequences likely for those whose decision-making enabled the conditions that led to the resultant security mess.
USA gets an excuse to start rattling it's sabres at a hopelessly outgunned nation, while fostering every reason to impose both interior & exterior sanctions (possibilities - increased surveillance, promotion of IT restrictions/control, the WMD scenario again, just off the top of my head), without really having to prove their accusations in any substantial form.
A sad, sorry & entirely unnecessary fuck-up of an incident.
Cynical? Moi? Absolutely!
... oops - quick, blame everyone else!
and ... I still don't care.
...but does it blend?
...the less secure i feel.
Sure... now bend over & grab your ankles.
That thought has crossed my mind - however, when the FBI & Obama are part of the PR campaign, I have to temper my cynicism (a little).
Someone's had far too much coffee today!
If that means not making anymore overblown and underwhelming movies, I won't be upset.
The collective heads of Sony Pictures are as stupid, selfish, short-sighted and negligent as you think they are.
(Just thinkin' out loud...)
Proof not prevarication, facts not finger-pointing. I have a healthy distrust of the political incumbents of any nation, but mostly (these days) the merkins - any response that starts with the basic premise "because we said so..." just doesn't cut it. Hard evidence, please.
noun: ponce; plural noun: ponces
1. derogatory an effeminate man.
2. a man who lives off a prostitute's earnings.
verb: ponce; 3rd person present: ponces; past tense: ponced; past participle: ponced; gerund or present participle: poncing
1.live off a prostitute's earnings. "he was arrested for poncing on the girl"
2. seek to obtain (something) without paying for it or doing anything in return. "I ponced a ciggie off her"
Just for the sake of clarification - make your own conclusions!
a) Who the hell comes up with these ridiculous valuations?
b) The investors are either incredibly canny (inside knowledge, financial jiggery-pokery) or incredibly stupid (good old blind greed) to bet on this company - I'm leaning toward the latter.
"We urge you to pass the bill, which both protects national security and reaffirms America's commitment to the freedoms we all cherish,"
Translation - "We've identified what you're doing as a revenue stream with massive potential - we can do it more surreptitiously, please hand it over to us so we can bill you for it."
I beg to differ.
Flora & Fauna have adapted & evolved throughout the existence of this planet and, I would posit, have withstood extremes from the universe than mankind could only inflict in it's imagination. No, humanity is not treating its home in a respectful manner, that much is evident. What tickles me is the tragically flawed & self centred assumptions of human ego - that it thinks, given the Earth's ancient & tumultuous history, it will have such a ruinous effect on the planet is (to me) ultimately self-serving & smacks of NIMBY syndrome. Nature doesn't give a shit - it's not afraid for itself, doesn't care about timelines or agendas and certainly will not be bothered by Homo Sapiens fractional contribution to its ever-changing being - it will roll along as it always has & always will - with or without our ultimately self-centred fretting. That's the certainty of Nature - and that is something I appreciate being a part of. That I'm a member of the human race just makes for a good joke.
Here endeth the brief world-view of Mitoo - thanks for your interest.
Climate change means mind-numbing minutae about climate change from Lewis Page is likelier.
