Still producing spectacular images.
Long may it continue.
All of my life
I've been lickin'
Ed Snowden's Crayfish
'Cause they taste like chicken
... between the crustacean and the former NSA contractor are tricky to discern
They're both slippery creatures?
Anyway, fair play to the researcher. As he pointed out, there are plenty of other examples of famous monikers attached to obscure critters so why not Mr. Snowden?
There's a god for that?
Wish I'd known that earlier; my last harrowing soil resulted in a day off work.
Is there any other kind?
Square ones, you say?
We live in a society that happily resurrected careers for Uri Geller and Peter Popoff despite both being spectacularly demonstrated as charlatans by James Randii.
I suspect there are still enough
gullible fools willing customers around the planet to sustain a diminished version of the site.
Honey, some Nigerian prince wants to give me FOURTEEN MEEEEEEELION U.S. DOLLARS!
Nice 'phone but everyone seems to be ignoring the gorilla in the room.
This reasserts the faith I already had in my fellow reg readers.
An article about more men being needed in traditionally female jobs.
Primary teaching was going to be my choice before doing my IT MSc. Turned out the application / intake dates were so far ahead that I would have had to wait another year to start so I did IT in the meantime.
The last few years of living with my primary teaching partner has shown me what a bullet I dodged. I'll stick to hacking out code for the time being.
Pebble Boulder, Colorado.
You consider bog-wall-graffiti a valid barometer?
No first human?
I don't Adam & Eve it!
Yes, the current one without words.
The article itself states:
Written in 1928 for the already-existing Royal March, the words were adopted by Franco and chums following their 1939 victory in the Spanish Civil War. They were finally consigned to the dustbin of history in 1978, and since then the anthem has been played without words.
Pwning for the sward, what kind of talk is that?
"Yes, but Dave's easier to remember. Anyway Dave...."
Outstanding and, of course, stolen for my own purposes.
Cheers and thank you for reminding me that pub-o-clock is nigh!
I left my front door unlocked and was surprised to find someone in my house, well woop de fucking doo
That actually happened to me about three or four years ago. I came downstairs one Saturday morning to find a complete stranger had slept on my couch. He seemed a decent sort so I made him a cuppa while he waited on his missus / pal (can't quite remember which) coming to pick him up, although I tend to lock the door at nights nowadays.
Ironic use of the FAIL icon, given the content of your linked article?
Cheers for lightening the mood, intentionally or not.
You have a Russian friend?
Oh, well, I guess that settles it.
It is indeed. I took my elderly father there for a visit last year and we had a grand day out.
From the article:
It’s a lot to absorb. Fortunately, you can do so over lunch at the Mill Café which offers Victorian afternoon teas, plus you can sample the Mill’s own, home-made ice-creams – so good, they’ve earned a place on Scotland’s Ice Cream Trail.
Said café also does a mighty fine fish supper, if the smile on the old man's face was anything to go by as he scranned it down.
Utterly absurd and almost as depressing.
It's flown by. (sorry)
More seriously, here's to more excellent science from this wonderful project.
How many buses in an Olympic-sized Wales?
Ah, the "Cake" episode. An absolute classic.
Mr Edmonds made a royal fool of himself.
"The most dangerous thing about Cake is that it's a made up drug."
And not to forget the other episode in that series where assorted celebrity pals were literally talking Nonce Sense.
Does it have to be one or the other?
"is open to answer and close to hang up!"
Which in turn provides the added benefit of making you feel just a teency bit Star Trek every time you use it.
Imoone to biological weapons?
Seems a bit harsh but I'd be happy to hear why you feel this way.
In some areas "dimming and trimming" that works best with new lighting control gear means if you'll stay up late the night skies are darker still, but there's little public acceptance of that, and (counter intuitively) the financial case for LEDs is compromised if they run for less hours.
The idea of a post-midnight switch off was briefly floated here before being roundly shouted down as irresponsible and dangerous by the local think-of-the-children brigade, so I don't hold out much hope for them accepting dimming either.
Indeed. I was fortunate enough to receive a telescope as a gift recently but my city-centre location means I usually only get to see Jupiter, Venus and latterly Saturn.
Beautiful though they are, it'd be nice to have a chance to view the skies minus the local street lights.
I've been meaning to take a late-night, weekend drive to somewhere darker but the Scottish, aherm, "summer" cloud and non-stop pishing rain have so far put paid to that plan.
Stood by the side of the road
And leveled his thumb
In the calm calculus of reason.
Oh aye? Is that what the kids are calling them these days?
...for probably being the only article written in any news publication today that correctly uses the word 'literally';
"we've just about literally only scratched the service of the worldlet on which it rests
It's so nice to read material written by a literate journalist!
"scratched the service" sounds like an unfortunate, crockery-themed mishap.
Hope it wasn't the good China plates!
That's still pretty impressive for a granule.
I fear we will see a gradual but steady increase in this type of intrusive pish over the coming years.
Not boring to me but yes, it does indeed seem to be this option.
"Close cousin to the earth and our son."
Bugger - means I can't watch it at work.
I like it - in fact I even like saying it!
It would make a good name for a baddie:
"No, his wee brother, Furikake."
"Bollox, we're doomed!"
Around my neck of the Caledonian woods, it equates to roughly the same amount as a bit and I can at least confirm that it is substantially more than a smidgeon, as in:
"She skelped him aroon' the heid wi' a dod ae wid and he's been doolally ever since!"
"Are you sure that soup is enough?"
"Aye, but gie's a dod ae breed wi' it."
Shuddup, big nose!
Well, that's hardly surprising; it's a cracker and you're not made of stone.
Does that also mean Charon and Hydra get to be maracas? (Not sure about Styx and the rest of the gang though.)
Looks to me like a Death Star that's been at the bottom of a lake for a few millennia.
That's no lake!
No need to apologise. I think your post is a little Ray of Light and it looks like you got right Into The Groove.
You just gave me a Flashback.
Or four ponies.
