Have you not see El Reg's tariff?
"Name, age, phone number, post code, password, secret question, dogs mothers owners blood type."
Don't forget shoe size.
So true. A tip of the hat to special affects pioneers like Ray Harryhausen.
(a pint since I don't wear hats and will raise a pint instead)
This is a bad idea
Don't think I can think of a more scary idea. You will end up with a bunch of FB friends that you will regret upon the arrival of the light of day
Re: a thief?
Actually Newton wrote that as a slam on Robert Hooke in their battle over the nature of light. There are a number of people that think that Newton may have (ahem) appropriated some of Hooke's ideas.
...Little Bobby Tables raises his ugly head.
Build a better mouse trap...
Taking this at face value, it is nice to see a company that has figured out that being proactive to offer a good product at a good price is the best way to generate revenue.
To many companies tend to only add functionality when clients clamor for it (and most of the time what the client is clamoring for is something silly that they don't really need) or decide that if their sales guys repeat how innovative they are enough times, they will be.
Re: Supernovae as popcorn
...in a vacuum.
It probably will work out, unfortunately
This sort of mimics some of the newer mags like FHM and Maxium.
Personally I like my skin mags to show more skin, but the young-in's seem to like them which I take as a sign as the impending end of civilization.
Paris...well, you can figure it out.
Re: Blody hell!
As a Californian, I would be glad to welcome him.
Unless you are a big business/bank. Then you can destroy the economy and/or lander money and not even be charged.
Well the good news is that this is still in committee in the House so it has a ways to go.
As much as the lack of Senate being able to pass any legislation drives me nuts some times, there are other times I find it quite comforting since the feces throwing monkeys in the House will pass just about anything except for a sensible budget.
That settles it!!
The cold spot obviously proves the the non-existence of universal warming.
I agree. I didn't read the study, but me thinks that the context of the data may have not have been thoroughly thought out (The Signal and the Noise by Nate Silver talks about this sort of crap) and without good contextual analysis of the data it is just an example of post hoc ergo propter hoc.
Re: Just wondering -
What's the UK term for "buzz kill"?
This maybe caused by the fact that Apple likes to "slavishly" copy prior art.
A bit more complex...
Me thinks that this is raising its ugly head to try and head off any possibility of the Marketplace Fairness Act (google it for more info) ever becoming law.
Re: But the numbers also reflect the demographic which owns an iPhone
Haven't these people met little Bobby Tables?
For US readers...
Looks like there is a petition that you can 'sign' at http://wh.gov/yA9n
Probably won't help, but it doesn't hurt to try.
What is the difference between something on the internet and a tattoo?
As difficult and painful as it is, a tattoo can be removed. It should be remembered that any form of electronic media is just one short step from being on the internet and people should plan accordingly.
Just as a though experiment, what would happen if someone used a normal camera then after the break up made a bunch of copies of the photo and tacked them up on every public bulletin board that they could find? Could the owners of the bulletin boards be liable? I don't know, but an interesting scenario.
Good thing for websites about flour that the FSM would never tolerate this sort of thing.
Especially if you kicked up the power and weaponized those babies!!
Sounds like just a big round of buzz word bingo
I bet if someone was creative enough they could find a way to apply the RICO statute to one of these bad actors. I also bet if this was done a couple of times these corporations may just think twice before pulling the crap they now pull.
Sort of a double standard
I have to wonder about stuff like this.
There are many examples of the NTSB making a recommendation to the FAA after a crash to change its rules so that the same thing does not happen again. What happens a lot of the time is the airlines start crying that the new reg would cost too much and the FAA promptly ignores the NTSB's recommendation.
Re: Well, the US government IS...
This is not the US government however, it is a school district and school districts are controlled at the local and state level.
That is one reason that I find this so fascinating, this is Texas, a state that is usually obsessed with individualism and very much against government intrusion.
Looks like for a little money, those beliefs can be modified.
Hypocrisy...yeah, they've heard of it.
This discovery probably means that the date of the first porn needs to be updated as well.
Re: The Guacamole Goulash
The addition of guacamole is an intriguing addition, however I would like to point out that whatever that green smear was...IT WAS NOT GUACAMOLE!! I mean really, was there even any avocado in that or was it just sour cream with some green food coloring in it?
Re: Yes, feeling very small!
@NukEvil Especially if they followed the 'some may disagree' link to the AnswersInGenesis, website.
Re: No. Just no.
I must agree about more protein needed. Also, where is the grease!! Granted, there is some on the bacon, but I am not talking about a few drops here or there, I am talking about an amount of grease that would make the BP Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico proud (over here in the states there are regions where bacon grease is a food group), and properly coat the stomach. Now you may be saying that the frying of the pierogi will give you some, but if you have properly heated the oil, it should soak in very little, so more grease is still needed.
As for the health effects of the grease and salt, let’s remember this is not supposed to be health food. You are eating this after you have assailed your liver with an amount of alcohol that could be used to disinfect all the equipment in a large hospital, so the health ramifications should not be a worry.
Paris because the grease helps keep her coat nice and shiny.
Let's not forget about dilution
Also, like any half baked idea, everyone is trying to start their own coupon service. Groupon should have sold out to Google when they backed the Brink's truck up to their door in 2010.
Re: Truth is...
Not quite sure that would be a bad thing. After around 14 years, I am only on my 4th phone and I am constantly amaze with people that feel that they need to get a new phone every year, even when the tech hasn't changed that much. It is a waste of money and resources.
Both look good, but...
While both dishes look very tasty, I live in San Diego California and any alchie here knows that the perfect food to grab while staggering your way home, or in the morning is a Carne Asada Burrito which is marinated chopped up beef (not ground), guacamole all wrapped up an a flour tortilla (tortilla must have lard as an ingredient!). The combination of grease and fat coats the stomach beautifully. This is also a great breakfast treat (although I can make the argument for a Machaca Burrito for 'the day after').
To find a properly prepared Carne, or Machaca Burrito, you will want to find a mom and pop Mexican place that should meet the following 3 criteria:
The name of the establishment should end in "erto's" (e.g. Alberto's, Ruperto's, etc)
Perferably the building should be painted in stripes of two colors (yellow and orange or white and blue tend to be the more authentic places).
Lastly, the grimier the better (if you cannot believe you are about to eat food prepared there, you have found the perfect spot).
(Note: you can find good beacon here, you just need to go to a proper butcher shop and yes, veggie beacon is a sin against nature)
Re: So they didn't create the name or symbolism...
They must be a subsidiary of Apple.
As a business traveler I cannot tell you how many times I have considered doing something like that, but alas didn't have the courage.
Re: Where's the science?
It is always difficult to argue against the "God said it, I believe it and the settles it" logic, so I am not even going to try. I am just sort of curious what brings you to a science and technology website in the first place. There is really not much for you here since a lot of the articles are about how stuff works and you already have your answer for how everything works "it is the will of the Creator".
PS - Perhaps you have seen the references to the FSM, you may want to Google it.
"Hanging's too good for him. Burning's too good for him! He should be torn into little bitsy pieces and buried alive! '
We don't need no stikin' BMI
Come on people, you don't need to do any higher math to figure out if you need to drop a few.
First test, you get out of the shower, are your feet wet? If no, then a trip to the local fat camp may be in your future, if yes, first test passed.
Second, look in the mirror; you will know if you should get a little more exercise by pushing yourself away from the dinner table.
Also there is the general waist to height rule, if you measure your circumference at your belly, it should be less than or equal to half your height, if it is not, a regular brisk walk around the block now and again would be in order. (If some studies are to be believed, the belly fat is the worst of the lot.)
A note to Mr. Page: In a previous article of yours I encouraged you to branch out by debunking other things that make people feel guilty besides climate change and I am so happy to see you have taken that suggestion to heart. While I could drop a few myself, and am thus encouraged by this report, I am still waiting for you to hit the mother lode, namely the whole smoking kills you thing, so that I might stop feeling guilty about that.
Oh, and one more thing...
Just to make sure I have this straight. Moon landing, not a chance, must be fake. Mermaids existing, totally believable.
...government of the people, by the people...
Stories like this during an election year just fills me with so much confidence about the direction of the US I just may burst!
U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A
Looks like we're number one again!!
The first step
Of course Apple is going to offer a mapping service...then patent it and sue others for having one.
For your consideration Mr. Page
While I have only read some of your articles, I feel like I have read them all and because of you, I now realize that the whole idea of climate change is based on bad science and the rants of tin foil wearing tree huggers. Thank you, I can now buy that SUV I have my eyes on, leave all my lights on 24/7 and burn pools of oil in my back yard without fear of global consequence.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could now tackle another thing that makes me feel bad. You see, I am a smoker and constantly feel bad about myself for not quitting. If you could do a series of articles debunking the whole smoking is bad for you thing that would be great. I believe that there are studies from the 50’s and 60’s that say that smoking is actually good for you, so if you just republish and expand on those, that should be a good start.
Thanks in advance for your attention to this.
