They could be Olympic sized swimming poos
$5 million?. In the USA? is that all?
$5M is about the going rate for being served the wrong coffee, or having your feelings hurt in the LoTF.
Regularly =/= frequently.
Halley's Comet appears regularly. It does not appear frequently.
German taxi drivers are now looking for looms to destroy.
" Other side effects include gangrene leading to the loss of fingers and toes, or in serious cases whole arms and legs."
And so the mystery of why so many fossilised arms and legs are found in isolation has been solved.
When they fly solo, one by one the stupid gene will continue to be removed.
Heads may well roll, sadly they'll be deputy heads.
The Sergeant at Arms has started an investigation. Not into the MP's behaviour but into how pictures of him microbating got into the wild.
Police are examining the skid marks.
This is why cousins shouldn't marry.
.. how is the mother ship being held in orbit?
Have a pint
From the article, it seems standing in front of it isn't that dangerous and standing behind it is likely to seriously damage the shooter.
What's not to like?
Worked well for Reeva Steenkamp, didn't it.
She was well protected by her man and his big gun.
As per the title
I sincerely hope whoever did it doesn't have access to firearms.
I have a vague recollection that one of the conditions of holding a firearms licence is the 'authorities' can inspect the guns and ammunition, and how and where they're stored at any time.
Is this the case? Was it ever the case?
In the year 927, when Athelstan united the separate kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia and became the first king of England.
Are there any EU standards for how long a giant supranational organisation can go without having its accounts signed off by the auditors?

From the Windowsphone site
"To erase your phone
If you're certain that you can't get your phone back, or if you have sensitive information on it that you want to protect until you recover it, you can erase your phone remotely.
On your computer, go to windowsphone.com.
Point to the phone in the top-right corner, then click Find My Phone. If you're prompted, sign in with the same Microsoft account you used to sign in on your phone.
If you're absolutely, positively sure, tick the I'm sure! Please erase my phone now checkbox, then click Erase."
I was thinking the same thing.
Blip the throttle on that thing and the crankshaft will stay still while the bike spins round.
"Some asteroids, such as Vesta, have craters that should have shattered them into fragments when they were hit. Vesta is only 520 kilometers wide, but possesses a crater 460 kilometers in diameter The only suitable explanation, according to gravity-based models of asteroid behavior, is that they are like big sand piles, absorbing impacts without shattering."
It may be only 520 kilometers wide now, but who's to say it wasn't many times that before the 460 km crater was formed, and the 520 km version is just what's left after the impact?
Instead of just seeming like it.
Don't get too hung up on the supposedly low power output and its effect on climbing ability.
It's equipped with something called a 'gearbox' which turns low torque/high revs into high torque/low revs. It's almost as if automotive designers had thought about it.
Do your dimensional analysis and you'll see Power = Torque x Revs.
No highs, no lows
Must be Bose
HELLO! I'M ON THE PENNINE WAY!
NO, IT'S CRAP! THERE ISN'T A STARBUCKS* FOR MILES!
*Other homeopathic 'coffees' are available
I'm more concerned my driver may not be a psychotic crackhead, and I'll miss out on an essential part of the New York experience..
Should that not be "When my glamorous assistant and apprentice boffin Katarina and I rolled up" ?
Would anybody really say "When myself did something"?
Words are the tools of a journalist's trade, using tools incorrectly causes problems.
Let 'em build it first, then chuck 'em out.
And what sort of size are the dust particles?
Now I have your attention, these 'figure enhancing' gel implant bras are the perfect medium for smuggling binary explosives.
Problem is, only the good looking ones would be selected for a 'random' check. Guess where the booby prize would be hidden.

.... and there's a Tom and Jerry or Roadrunner moment when it rings.
"They are about as useful as a chocolate chisel. Or OFGEM."
Or the Telephone Preference Service and its junk mail equivalent.
Useless the lot of 'em.
wash their hands before going to the toilet.
I'm happy to do my bit for science. Cheers!
"What was that? Play it backwards whilst watching Alice in Wonderland and consuming mind altering chemicals, and you might just hear a secret message?"
The message should be "You're ruining your stylus, you're ruining your stylus"
They all just said "Sod this" and walked straight past the desks.
I'd go further than just a fine. Confiscate the phone on the spot.
When you'v been found not guilty in a court you get it back, otherwise it becomes landfill.
"Do you know who I am?"
"Is there a doctor in the house? This man doesn't know who he is"
I'd say it's more like a car dealer charging £X hundred for an option like automatically folding door mirrors, when that option is merely enabled in the car's software.
Was the fuse mounted on a round tuit?
Which also has to abide by many EU regulations in order gain these benefits, but has no say in their formulation.
How about allowing users to add attachments from within the email app?
As things stand, the only attachment you can add to an email is a picture. To add an attachment such as a pdf or xls, you start by selecting the file, you then compose the email around it. Of course, this means it's only possible to add one attachment. Not very productive when I want to send two or three invoices, for instance.
How do they determine the accuracy of the most accurate clock ever built?
And how do they know it will have lost a second rather than gained one?
Upvoted, specifically this "nobody has the right to not be offended. "
If you don't want to be offended, don't live in a democracy.
"I even received something similar in the post claiming that I was the sole inheritor of $14.7m from a relative hitherto unbeknown to me, a Mr John Dabbs of Hong Kong,"
I too kept the letter for posterity.
A good rule of thumb to remember is 'If you're not paying for the product, you are the product'.
They sort of did that with the bottom-feeder airlines. The ones that splashed "Benidorm for £1!!!" on their front page. Except when you got to the checkout it had risen to fifty or sixty pounds. Still cheap but not what was promised. Now they have to include all taxes, booking fees, credit card fees, fuel charges, luggage fees, pilot surcharge, oxygen mask rental, window use fee, engine surcharge and so on in the splash price.
Namely the companies who literally give away blood glucose test meters so they can sell you their test strips at 50p a pop.
