The photo needs to be renewed every ten years so your drivers license is invalid and if you get caught using it you'll get a £1000 fine.

Pushed you over the grand.
Sounds like they might have made a sign error. Probably wiped the story once they realised they were looking 5 years back in time rather than 5 years forward.
Oh well. Good effort.
Looks very good. Might get one.
I really like my current blackberry. It suits my usage patterns:
SMS, email and occasional web browsing. One other thing I use the phone for is taking the odd rare photograph if I happen across something interesting while out and about and the camera is really quite bad --- any idea what it's like on this one?
Re: why haven't they found us and made contact yet?
Maybe there's a lot more to existence than the observable universe and our animal life. Perhaps the more advanced civilisations are exploring that place.
I also love Hello Kitty.
Your post which got most Thumbs Up
Would be interested to see which of your posts got most thumbs up.
My one is:

I gave it a go once, but I didn't inhale.

Re: a simple explanation
"She still replied I was equally as mean and controlling though..."
Take her bed away and make her sleep in the floor. That'll teach her.
What's wrong with being a slut? I think they're lovely.
Re: Not exactly a shock
"Even a difference in survival of 5% would mean the survival trait would be dominant in the population within a couple of generations."
Yes --- when you propagate the 5% difference through the whole species. But, unless it's a super-power, it means f-all for an individual.
I knew that storing all my urine in bottles in the attic would pay off one day.
As an olympic event, boxing must involve some 'talent'.
The designer of the logo calls it a bite...
Apparently there's a bite in the apple to stop it looking like a cherry.
Where's Dog the Bounty Hunter when you need him?
Is all that swearing really necessary?
From the BBS news website, the co-owner said:
"They muck the buffet up for everyone, they push and shuffle people from the barbecue area and it's pretty sad really, because you can eat all you like over five-and-a-half hours - it's not an issue, you don't need to rush."
If they're spoling other diners' meals then fair enough to kick them out.
Re: There is no standard for such measures
Depends what they mean by "standard measure" --- eg. for chips they just scoop a bunch into one of the chip packs: how standard could the weight of a medium pack of chips be?
"Since McDonald's allegedly only uses the finest ingredients, presumably similar, for example, to Dark Origin Ecuador (£3.50 for 50g at today's online market price), the potential hit to the company coffers is a McMagnificent £18,900 per annum."
However, if the employees buying McFlurries weren't satisfied with their sprinkles and stopped buying them the company would be out £1.40 x 740 x 365 = £378,140 a year.
.. also, a sprinking of well fried bacon bits over the pierogi works a treat.
Hurray, my favourite grub in a death match.
Thanks for giving the pierogi a go Lester -- although personally it's the meat ones that do it for me.
"HECToR stands for the High End Computing Terra Scale Resource" (HECTSR).
Instead of a massive storage upgrade perhaps they should have first got around to installing a spell-check.
Re: "Not pleased"
Why did he need a doctor's letter? I can't think of any medical reason for needing to have video recording spectacles attached to your skulll.
Perhaps it was a letter from his psychiatrist.
To Whom it may concern,
This man is disturbed. Treat with caution.

Maybe if we made a transporter before we made the Enterprise...
People are working on it...
I thought Ron Jeremy would have been perfect as Steve Wozniak.
