All ABOARD! Furious Facebook bus drivers join Teamsters union

Re: Sub it out

If you'd bothered to read as far as the article's second paragraph you would know that "the unhappy drivers work for Loop Transportation, which has a contract to ferry Zuck's staff to and from the Facebook campus".

Tyneside Cinema

My Dad took me to see a double-bill of The Blues Brothers and Dr Strangelove at the Tyneside Cinema twenty years ago. I'm glad to hear the place is still going strong.

Re: It's not just gaming where this is rife

I just had a nightmarish vision of a cutesy animated wallet appearing in the corner of the screen:

"Hi! I'm Wally! It looks like you need to add another page to your document. Do you want buy 1 page for 99p, 10 pages for £7.99 or 1000 pages for £89.99?"

JohnMurray, do you have a source for this claim? I'm not being awkward, it really would be useful to know.

I'm disappointed that you linked to an alleged medical practitioner rather than Tomas de Torquemada, Emperor of Termight. Be pure! Be vigilant! Behave!

Why is nobody talking about accountants?

The big four accountancy firms (KPMG, E&Y, PWC and the other one) supply the Treasury with experts to draft tax laws. The same firms make a big pile of cash advising everyone else how to use the loopholes they helped create. /This/ is the root of the problem, though HMRC and the National Audit Office do their bit too.

Re: It ain't gonna work in the UK...

Too true. UPS in the UK appear to shut down completely on weekends. If they try to deliver on Friday and you don't get home to the slip of paper by 5pm it's too late to reschedule Monday's delivery. Even though you can manage the whole process online, you can only do so on Monday to Friday, 9 to 5.

Re: Scary

"...beneath our civilised "skin" we might all have the seathing horror of the primative and animalistic lurking in our brains."

Jeremy Kyle's show has that effect on me now.

Indeed. If we don't nip this in the bud they'll be building robots with Genuine People Personality. *shudder*

Squillionaire space tourist offers oldsters a holiday to Mars

I think the request for an older couple "past child-bearing age" is to prevent the usual consequence of a fertile couple shagging like rabbits.

On the other hand, being the first people to create extra-terrestrial life would be quite an achievement. It's certainly something to tell the grandkids!
