Interred Trove - theres always an IT angle.
Well obviously, since their were no Christians around at the time they used BCE instead.
Beware the Intel fanbois - they may not be many but they are keen.
I hate to say it but this story crosses the line from good fun and harmless innuendo into outright sexism. It's the 21st century folks, the mere presence of women anywhere, no matter how attractive, should neither be a surprise nor cause of schoolboy sniggers.
Might work with the end sequence of 2001. Otherwise, I can't see much use for it.
The thing about islands is that the bigger they get the less islandy they become. I mean I live on an island but since it's an entire continent you'd never know.
Dammit, I see where this is going. Ellison's ego won't be satisfied until he buys a
Malcolm Peter Brian Telescope Adrian Umbrela Stand Jasper Wednesday (pops mouth twice) Stoatgobbler John Raw Vegetable (whinnying) Arthur Norman Michael (blows squeaker) Featherstone Smith (whistle) Northgot Edwards Harris (fires pistol, then 'whoop') Mason (chuff-chuff-chuff-chuff) Frampton Jones Fruitbat (squeaker) Gilbert (sings) 'We'll keep a welcome in the' (three shots) Williams If I Could Walk That Way Jenkin (squeaker) Tiger-drawers Pratt Thompson (sings) 'Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head' Darcy Carter (horn) Pussycat (sings) 'Don't Sleep In The Subway' Barton Mainwaring (hoot, 'whoop') Smith.
But I misspelled 'umbrella' so I should be right.
Unfortunately this Voyager's fate involves a rather ugly bunch of Klingons.
You're forgetting all that slash fiction I'm afraid.
It's transformer alter-ego is Batman not Lisa Simpson giving a blowjob. That has to be worth a few k.
As I well now. I still have a slightly melted 8x1x3 as a souvenir of my attempt to produce a working gun out of Lego and firecrackers*.
*It was a long time ago.
Yhe Internet? I thought by the twenty-second century they had replaced the Internet with a big mainframe with blinkenlights on an asteroid somewhere in deep space. It's progress, Jim, but not as we know it.
ICT - Ill-advised Carlisle Transport. Don't worry I'll stop now - I blame DARPA anyway.
Definitely IT - Ill-advised Transport.
Too bad the Pythons have already made The Final Rip Off . A replica comfy chair for $30,000 would really be the ultimate ripoff.
there are times when it's appropriate.
Geri Halliwell never made anything sexy. Some things should never be spoken of even in jest.
with that. For SPACE NAZIS you need SPACE SPITFIRES.
with the first post insert Skynet joke here.
I didn't realise preparations for the Galactic Empire were so far advanced.
Yes. I was thinking more "Highway to Heaven" than the other place.
My new band name.
the SPB secret testing bunker again?
I suspect the explanation for the Big Dumb One involves some form of (possibly alien) brain parasite. Though more traditional types of zombiefication can't be ruled out.
That murmuring you can hear is a thousand golden age SF writers whispering "I told you so" from beyond the grave".
While I understand the reason for it swastika avoidance does irritate me. Blood Rayne, for example ,used a three-armed pseudo-swastika. If was as if in the game's weird alternative reality Hitler was Manx.
The Russians never got Scotty into space so there's that.
Education and awareness perhaps that sex is actually a mutually enjoyable activity to be conducted with a partner as well as, a fantasy object? FTFY.
Or do you propose to outlaw fantasy?
Pornhub features "Free porn sex videos & pussy movies" so maybe yes.
Any sort of gene manipulation can be viewed as a process of encoding data. What they've done here is to make the write process more user friendly.
Dammit, we need a zombie icon!
Let's not forget my favourite.
Luxury! In my day we had to make do with Celerons.
Mutant space spiders/trout/whatever - what's not to like.
<- I think that's a Fantastic Four comic in the pocket.
Not just space chickens. Rubber Chickens from Beyonf the Stratosphere. Where's Ed Wood when you need him.
WUWT? It's still in the laboratory. There's no reason to make it small until you need to make it small. That would just be making life difficult for yourself.
I'd forgotten about the iTelegraph.
how terrified I would be at the sight of the word idiot painted on a chimmney.
then privatised them. That was Romans wasn't it? My British history's a bit vague.
Probably not a good idea to get your material from out of copyright books.
Bacon, tomato and onion? OK I get that CCS is probably carbon capture something but BTO genuinely has me flummoxed.
there's those of us who have been waiting for the Arduino Leonardo (the real one, not a clone) since something like September so it pretty much balances out. Of course sales numbers are meaningless here. For example, no one really knows what percentage of Atmegas end up as de facto Arduinos. These aren't commercial projects folks. They aren't competing projects. I wish people (who should know better) would stop talking as if they were.
that this is the aerial equivalent of "lets build a monorail".
And you call this a geek treat. Admittedly, on past form, the entire series should be renamed "treats for people who really like Apple products"*.
*I'll spare you the f-word.
So its not pointless - just crap design.
If there is rigid online censorship in Australia I have yet to come up against it. The reality is that there have been persistent failed attempts at online censorship. Failed, because no one supports them except a few unrepresentative lobby groups which unfortunately have the main political parties running scared.
Only if it were fitted with a speaker.
