Have you not heard of laxatives? Too much artificial sweetener also has the same effect, i believe.

Have you not heard of laxatives? Too much artificial sweetener also has the same effect, i believe.
Let me see, a guy who earns a (reported) ridiculous sum of $300k per episode for 25 years launches a lawsuit to sue for "fair artistic compensation, industry-wide."
I look forward to him paying back some $298,000 per episode back into the artists collective pot, so that all such artists can receive a "fair" return.
Modern life i suppose.
When Twitter does meet it's end, i'm undecided as to whether the nations (UK) health (mental) will improve or decline once the millenials, celebs and wannabe celebs have no outlet for their narcissistic prattle.
Disclaimer : I spend about 5 mins a week perusing some accounts for the perverse pleasure of being able to repeatedly utter WTF.
At least the indicators will be used where appropriate/required.
I've though about this dilemma, more in the context of constantly stepping in front of one of these autonomous vehicles such that they slam their brakes on. Good fun to be had.
Best be careful which make/model i choose then.
There is only ONE ginger for the role.
L & G, I give you Mrs Horner, fka Ginger spice.
Can you imagine all that pillow talk, fired up on Red Bull.
Pistons, big ends fnarr, fnarr.
The only film that looks the same in reverse as it does normally.
Surely he could have garnered much assistance from the (impoverished?) students for much less than the fine of €3,420?
Many times over.
The article ends with an hyperlink , "you can find the press release *here*".
So by the logic of the article, that is an instant breach of copyright ( of the press release)?
Regardless of whether or not The Reg has sought and obtained express permission to make such a link.
Suggested exception to any laws : Please ban ALL hyperlinks within Twitter.
Edit : Just as most El Reg articles do, surely they don't obtain permission for every single one of them?
Do we get to keep Bondgirls and is Bond herself a lezza?
Or do the girls become Men?
A hybrid franchise of sorts, Carry On Bonding?
Two points :
1. Just how hard can it be for Uber to become "legal" and register as the taxi operator it so clearly is? Technically, easy. Philosophically difficult.
2. Advice to Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania : when drafting legislation for "ridesharing", make it relevant to that and not operating an unlicensed taxi service like Uber.
It worries me that the leading official in the State/Commenwealth intimates that Uber is merely ridesharing. Surely that is dishonest, disingenuous at best.
It also amuses me that often the US are the forerunners in cracking down on "rogue" banks who bend the rules or the corrupt businesses who use "bribery" to win business.
What's the difference between bribery and such as appointing key IOC Veeps as "ambassadors", for the victory ( well, Goddess of)? The US seems to rather like the latter approach.
one wouldn't think there was an ongoing obesity epidemic, would one.
My first thought was that it a photo of the retro french actress (actress, really?) Dominique Saint-Clair.
There is a strong semblance there, but there again, i've never really seen DSC with her clothes on.
Now what was that about the servers?
May i offer :
t'rain : piss wet through precipitation, mostly downward but occasionally near horizontal.
A close second would be Backgammon against "experts". If they don't win the opening roll with one of three or so favourable rolls they just quit. LOL.
Not to mention the special "Clinton's (own) Laws".
It isn't going to go well.
How about Winners take all?
With Android there are 100's of millions of winners.
Even the one loser, Oracle, can well afford to do so.
Much better for a civilised society that way, do you not think?
On a topical note, same with the RIO olympics. Sure there have been a few hundred gold medal winners, some nicely positioned IOC officials and ambassadorial VP's who have done very well for themselves but there are also billions of losers who will now forego better housing, education and health care to pay for it.
My £0.02 worth says it isn't leading us to a better or even more civilised society. On the contrary.
Why not collect quite a bit more material? It's not like there's a baggage handling charge on the return journey.
*As my millenial daughter once asked after her first Domestic Science lesson ( well, she called it Food Tech but i knew what she meant) and upon reading a recipe, "Dad, what are oz's?"
I blame the teachers.
that Elm 3DS know they have a lot to be worried about if the reviews are allowed to proceed.
ie No brown wedding parties or MSF hospitals where harmed during this entire exercise.
I felt such a drip when the Dr gave me the test results.
For the small sum of $40 ( 30GBP ) she took me much further than i'd ever been before.
Contrast that with the UK's 2011 Census ( pop'n about 2.5 x that of Oz) :
Approx cost of some £495m
Thousands (tens of?) of returned and completed forms lost before census day.
Thousands (hundreds of?) of useless forms, (duplicate or non valid addresses) issued in advance.
Return rates in a lot of London Boroughs down in the 60%'s.
Successful prosecutions for non-return? Very few if any, i guess.
Yep, the Aussies have some way to go to match that "success" rate.
I hope they've sorted out all the bugs :
Presumably that youngster being "used" in the ad has given their informed consent?
No doubt about it, at all, of course it's made up.
It didnt just appear out of the Big Bang.
Being far removed from any form of Boffinry, i much prefer the Billy Connolly version :
"She shouted get him Rover and he jumped over ..."
If they really cared about the little guy, why don't all the mega rich superstars, the likes of Thom Yorke, Taylor Swift et al start up their own Music Label?
As an aside, if "stealing" music was good enough for major record companies in the 70's, then why be surprised when others do likewise? Compare :
Mr O's articles often refer to insufficient or falling revenue. But one could rightfully ask, where does all the massive increase in revenue, in relative terms, go to?
I understand that tickets to see the first Glastonbury Festival or the Derek & the Dominos tour ( a series of gigs) circa 1970 were priced at £1 , yes 1 single GBP each.
That's £15 in today's value, adjusted for inflation.
Where on earth, well the UK, the US. can you see anyone live for that amount nowadays?
Take Scarborough for example, an open air venue, yeah you get piss wet through when it rains and it does, the shittiest "bands"/acts start from £37
Also, whatever happened to half price tickets for children?
Of course i am, don't you know that my wife is the (now thankfully ex ) Home Secretary?
ps you couldn't bill me as it being "parliamentary stationery" could you?
Ooooh, i think i have a cold coming on ......a tissue.
manic depressives were much sought after too.
The animated graphic had me laughing out loud, again after all these years.
Senator Warren is a Democrat.
She rails against the monopoly power of huge business, particularly tech firms, such as Google.
Yet she's supported Obama for over 7 years. in bending over backwards for Google, notwithstanding being elected by.
And she wants to be running mate to the mega-sold out would be (probably will be ) POTUS Clinton?
Weird. Or par for the course.
At least our Sturgeon seems to be flogging a dying horse simply for the hell of it.
There were 30,000lbs of Bananas, yes there were 30,000bs of ........mashed Bananas.
And of course, the brokerage agent is likewise being prosecuted for aiding and abetting an illegal activity and profiting therefrom.
Yeah, thought not.
I wonder what the relative percentages, Remain/Leave will become when Sturgeon, sorry i mean Scotland are told that their bill is £12bn a year and their "allocation" of hitherto non-EU migrants is circa 500,000.
Oxford County Council, maybe City i dunno, here's looking at you.
Reason for my success, i had a perfectly valid ticket on full display.
The time of the "issue" would suggest the warden was chancing his/her arm just before clocking off.
It's about time that issuing such tickets in such circumstances is a CRIMINAL offence. By both the warden and the head honcho of the council. I did think of reporting it, as fraud*, to the Police at the time but am fully aware of what their response is.
well, it is a possibility that Mars will be swamped** with immigrants in the none too distant future, hopefully within the remainder of my natural life.
** relatively speaking.
To help the Mexicans build that wall? To keep the yanks IN.
Easiest of responses to France.
Apply the law, international standards :
Return those would be illegal immigrants to the last safe country they passed through ie France. By air if necessary, parachutes on request.
It is perfectly clear from the results what the one overriding issue is.
Call me what you will, but an image of Deliverance entered my mind.
In that case may Blair be allowed to file an amicus brief on behalf of the US government and become a co-defendant?
This morning a close neighbour had one fitted.
The "operative" spent one hour installing the meter followed by three more hours doing nothing but sit in his van and be on the phone most of that time. Dressed at all times in what appeared to be a very bulky and dayglo green jacket. Even though he was safely parked on her drive.
Unknown but for how long? That''s one pretty lass.
The FWB* will be along shortly to campaign to have such women removed.
Are there any as i have a few e-books and no end of friends, er i mean potential borrowers.
Prior art, non fiction too

* at the mo.
is that the existing law, as it's quoted exceptions, places "IP theft" on a far higher plane than violent and the most heinous of sexual offences.
Wow, some civilised society right there. Not.
Hell, the most likely next POTUS can't even comply with her own countries rules, regulations and laws so what chance Europe's?
should it have been ..."against the high profile UK mis-parenting site"?
Didn't Genesis refer to selling England by the pound, not Britain?
Not a particularly difficult track to learn is it?
I reckon my dog could drive the kid's battery powered car around that track given 20 minutes learning time. And sufficient treats.
If Holland, as a mouthpiece, is so in favour of investment in real, actual facilties, then why such severe opposition to any municipality that wishes to make real investment in real infrastructures?
If only a fraction of what the sister-in-law, a teacher, tells me then most of the current state education system is engaged in gaming the system (for higher self reward) and producing a whole load of future operatives for such underhand tactics.
Wouldn't it be better if the NCA or similar employed this Love guy in a job, a top job?
And gave "sex and travel" advice to the Yanks.
