Well, were the Senator to actually *use* some intelligence he'd probably realise that he might as well piss up a rope for all the good that it will do him.
His plan makes as much sense as all those Jobsworth "Community Support Officers" etc trying to stop tourists from taking pictures of London landmarks.

... now should I use the one with my trousers around my ankles and bending over? Or perhaps the one holding the sign saying "Facebook Sucks"? Or maybe...
Oops, have you had a heart attack? Mwahahaha!
... it was refusing to obey the orders of the weak fleshy ones...!
'...with a Buddhist phrase "gate gate paragate parasangate bodhi svahdl"'
A neon? I hope he achieved enlightenment then.
(And, yes, I know this should have been sent as a correction because someone probably let auto-correct do the work for them, but the pun was too good to resist!)
"there's a common saying that innocent men don't run"
Yes, and it's as much BS as "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear."
The law says you are PRESUMED to be innocent UNLESS and UNTIL you are PROVEN guilty!
But that's not good enough for some people...
"How do you propose to apply the methods of experimental science to the current climate without taking any readings of current weather?"
Did I say that? Err, no.
Neither did I say that they were entirely unconnected. I am aware that Climate is Weather measured over a long period, unfortunately some people seem to think that just because we've had the wettest/ driest/ suniest/ whatever week on record that that means something.
... Weather != Climate
ducks. Phew! That was a close one...
Try telling that to Billie-Jean King, winner of more tennis titles than I can remember, stil active and definitely not obese, yet she has Type 2 diabetes.
Yep, the truth definitely hurts.
Yep, that's definitely a face! Can I have my £12.8, please
I can look at the right hand side of the screen too, but I don't see anything since I installed AdBlock Plus!
It's clear that you don't run a business either.
One complaint may be a lone nutcase, ten complaints suggests that there's actually going to be a *lot* more people out there who aren't happy, but haven't put finger to keyboard to say so., however none the less that should most certainly set alarm bells ringing and not simply generate an attitude of "well, it's only a few people, let's just ignore them" because if (and when) they're offered a better alternative, they're likely to desert your business in droves.
Your understanding of how such things work is weak.
Maybe one day you'll run a company and realise that if you piss off enough of your customers by ignoring what they want and saying "Dear customers, we don't give a fuck what you think!", they'll go somewhere else and you won't *have* a company any more.
And every time you copy a song a fairy dies!
"I'm surprised. I thought most washing machines (as well as dishwashers) these days had built-in delay timers."
Not the one I've got and to replace it would just be more wasteful.
I used to "time shift" my laundry, I'd put washing in at night and set a time switch on the plug so the appliance would come on early in the morning and would be finished by the time I woke up (the machine being right at the other end of my house from my bedroom).
However now I can't do that because on my new machine there's no mechanical "on-off" button which will let me leave it "switched on" but with nothing happening until the time switch on the plug activates it, just a "soft touch" button which needs pressing before anything happens.
"If it's not acceptable over here then don't do it over there either. "
It's all very well saying "play a straight bat, keep it above board, don't play their dirty games", but, especially in the current economic climate, the vast majority of businesses are going to play whatever games they can and by whatever rules are available in order to clinch a contract.
You don't like it, I don't like it, but the other option is risking bankruptcy.

Paging Mr Pott and Mr Kettle-Black...
I didn't even read the article, I just loved the sub-heading!
"... what WE say you can have..."
Sorry, which country were we talking about again?
... that map from the University of Sydney looks a bit like the board game Pandemic?
Just sayin' ;-)
"domain name investor"?
I'm sure there's another name for that...
Remember the old saying:
"He who dies with most toys, wins!"
This fulfills that nicely :-)
Well at least *one* person (ie me!) realised you were being satirical...!
... me too.
Ok, it looks cool, but, as always, the realiy doesn't match up.
20 grand? I'll pass.

Pistols at dawn, Sir!
... be up for this award...?!
That could get messy...
Actually it isn't, but you can look forward to lots of these from idiots who think that their every status update is the most important thing ever...
"...because of sulphur pollution released into the atmosphere by humans"
So what you're saying is that mankind's activites *DO* have an effect on the climate...?
"...nor can we allow the erosion of basic fundamental rights in Europe, and around the world, for expediency's sake"
Unless you're the British Government...
... and thought "good!"
But listening to what our users want isn't.

In the past week I've had at least three occasions when I've wanted to record something from eg History, National Geographic and then maybe E4 or BBC4 or some such at the same time, but even with using the +1 channels, there have been clashes/ overlaps with other things I want to see, so I've had to resort to looking through the Radio Times for repeats of the programme either in the wee small hours of the morning or on different days which is a PITA.
I've currently got about half my Sky+ HDD (I replaced the original with one that was twice the size a long time ago) filled with documentaries, shows like Game of Thrones, Bones, Big Bang Theory Dara o'Briain's School of Hard Maths and more which are definitely worth watching, it's just a matter of finding time to watch them all before something else comes along I want to see...!
There is *never* a Cabal...!
Which really means "Sorry, I didn't *LOOK* properly..."!
... is there Life on Mars?
"...fingerprints scanned by MobileID kit are not retained after the check has been run."
How *DARE* these Porn Merchants expect Parents to take responsibility for the upbringing of their children!
How *RIDICULOUS* to expect people to have to *install* new software on their computers in order to block this filth!
Don't they know that the interwebs are just the latest form of childminding as TV and Videos and DVDs have been before and it's the job of the Government and the Broadcasters and the Programme Makers to ensure that little kiddies don't see anything that might disturb them!!
I am ABSOLUTELY FLABBERGHASTED that anyone could believe things like this and I shall be writing to my MP in the *STRONGEST* terms right after my nurse gives me my medicine!!!
"Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans."
"most people know how to pronounce 'Bristol'"
Well, no, they *think* they know how to pronounce it, but it's actually more correctly pronounced "Bristle" (at least by the locals ;-) )
Doesn't that rather defeat the purpose of it?
