Re: the radiation will tell us they're on the way.
I would rather have Sigourney Weaver for dealing with Aliens.

Not sure what you mean by Gaining acquirer-led. In the UK you need to get the PAC (Porting Authorisation Code) from your old provider and give this to your new provider to transfer your phone number.
This is for security reasons and is designed to stop somebody else stealing your phone number.
I have never got a better offer from the retentions team than the network I was moving to so I just lie when I call for my PAC now and tell them I already have the new phone. Saves you lots of hassle getting passed between departments.
"If BST were abolished, I'm pretty sure my employer would agree to me working 08:00 to 16:30 in the summer. Would yours though? Would everybody else's?"
Look into the flexible working laws...
Your employer has to give a valid reason you can't work from 08:00 to 16:30 instead of 09:00 to 17:30. Because they don't want you to is not a valid reason.
It was nice for the last few weeks when we have had an extra hour per day to do business with Americans. I had the novelty of them replying to an email while I was still at work and it not taking several days to get issues fixed.
I would vote to end BST if I had the choice.
"If we learned one thing from The Amazing Colossal Man and Grasshopperus it's that radiation makes stuff grow real big real fast."
So we wont even need to wait a generation until we get huge mutant falcons.
You can't invade Calais because Japan didn't attack the Norks...
The US can invade Calais though.
I disagree with "car comes with it built in" being the main reason. A quick glance round the work car park and only 2 of the cars belonging to management have built in Sat Nav. None of the cars belonging to us plebs have it built in.
It may be a better experience than a smart phone but its not the reason I would choose one brand of car over another and it seems most of my colleagues agree with me.
I like Comic Sans because it winds up my designer friends when I use it.
They are such easy targets!
Tycho is on the Earth side not the far side...
As part of the argument about Ukraine all cheese imports from the EU have been banned by Russia.
They are now looking for new sources of cheese so it wont be long until they are up there.
That is a phone....
You are correct calling it a gimmick though
There are 8 planets. If you are including dwarf planets as planets 10 is way off...
As of Tue Jan 20 2015 there are:
10 objects which are nearly certainly dwarf planets,
22 objects which are highly likely to be dwarf planets,
44 objects which are likely to be dwarf planets,
75 objects which are probably dwarf planets, and
359 objects which are possibly dwarf planets.
It bothers me in most games.
After years of playing Halo I still try to get in the passenger side of a Warthog.
Especially London 1969 because you got to drive on the correct side of the road.
Its because of the Saudi's the price is coming down, if the west start to piss them off they will just put the price back up again.
The reference to 1000 planets in the original NASA press release is that these are the 1000th confirmed planets from the Kepler mission. I guess this means the 837 other planets on your app must have been detected by other means.
How do you keep the Oxygen in the cup?
If you need to mess about with Wine it defeats the point of the steam console being a console.
Console users don't want to have to tweak things to run games properly, thats why they chose a console.
Bargain, can you get Diesel that cheap as well? If so I would like 60 litres please. Delivery to the UK.
Does this mean I can visit Nodnol and see the The Sensational Reverse Brothers?
I wouldn't have included the last paragraph, but have an up vote anyway.
Given the Nexus naming scheme based on the size of the screen I look forward to my 150" mobile phone.
Fitting it in the car may be an issue.
My opinion is if Pluto wants to come back down to the elliptic and orbit with the rest of us they can be a full planet.
If they want to stay at their current jaunty angle they can stick with the dwarf planets.
Thats terrible... it would be like me commenting on a website when I should be working.
A position in Government based on who your parents are seems dead wrong to me... I would rather vote for somebody I can replace with a similar idiot in 5 years time.
I thought they had changed their mind about the pixelating thing because of the easy access to non-Japanese porn on the internet but its not something I want to search for at work to confirm or deny my suspicions!
If they can't starve the homeless out perhaps they should just move Fort Lauderdale a few miles down the road and leave the homeless behind.
I don't understand... There were only 3 Indiana Jones films.
There was only 1 Matrix film as well.
Warcraft was the first game I ever modded. All the sound files when you select a unit were stored as simple wav files. I recorded my own and gave the dwarves a (bad) Irish accent instead of Scottish!
I also remember dragging my PC to a friends house so we could play against each other using a serial cable, although that may have been Warcraft 2.
I never broke a phone screen when they were made of plastic.
Electrify the floor and have them draw power from that, solves any pesky battery problems.
It would make it interesting if they were going to play humans vs robots, it would possibly make it watchable.
If Microsoft didn't buy them we wouldn't have got Viva Pinata.
It means I don't break the Hard Disk when I drop my laptop which happens more than it should do!
They can't tax you for war spending if there aren't any other countries.
If price is an issue you could always try one of these:
Isn't that the point of private business in space... beating each other on price rather than relying on the expensive launch options that currently exist?
@Mage: You do know the long term plan is to use the White Knight mothership to launch rockets that deploy satellites?
The Fithp use lasers to launch their ships from the surface.
Are we sure it wasn't Richard Branson? He does have his own island in the Caribbean.
This is how Wars start....
Some innocent race find the gift of the golden record and all of a sudden they start dieing off like the Martians in War of the Worlds.
We have even given them directions of where to come to complain.
Norweb would care about the bill
Yep I have just searched the FAQ to find this out as well. Disappointing.
You would have thought the "London-based publishing and consulting firm" that wrote the piece would have mentioned this.
In my world the half and half part just refers to a half portion of Chips with a half portion of Rice... the curry sauce to go with them can be replaced by pretty much any Asian take away food.
Mars isn't that far away.
Nope, no British cakes are subject to laws restricting where they can be made.
You can make Chelsea buns, Dundee Cake and Welsh Cake wherever you want to.
They are armed with lasers as well.
Its only a matter of time before some well meaning human gives them a way to get to our planet, then we are doomed.
I try to live my life by the Fuzzy Pink Niven's Law: Never waste calories.
"Potato chips, candy, whipped cream, or a hot fudge sundae may involve you, your dietician, your wardrobe, and other factors. But FP's Law implies: Don't eat soggy potato chips, or cheap candy, or fake whipped cream, or an inferior hot fudge sundae."
They didn't make a series 9 and the result was series 10 was better than series 8.
