Yes, I have no idea where they learned the stiff upper lip thing but since it's also known as sang froid I suppose it was from the French.
Struth mate, everyone knows the second person plural is "youse".
and paint the windscreen black.
Are you sure that it not in fact a ridiculous term for an even more ridiculous sex act? Because I'm not.
Yeah, now Major T's safely on terra firma I'm flogging the Space Oddity jokes for all their worth.
Electric powered azimuth thrusters are common enough and manage to spend their entire working lives underwater without problems. The seals on the the Tesla's motors might are probably not that good but good enough to protect against constant road water should be good enough for a few seconds immersion.
just so someone could say "ground control to Major Tim". (Someone did say that didn't they?)
Seriously, I'm not British so I don't have a stake in this but doesn't it come down to whether you want to play with the big boys or sulk in the corner? Because, for the big boys 80 million is small change. Go ask Elon.
but beautifully expressed.
Nothing launched into space, either. <Musk fanboy mode off>
Sorry - couldn't resist the bait!
"For what its worth, they aren't really a problem anyway."
You might have a different view if you lived in Syria.
No one made any effort to point out that Dylann Roof didn't represent Christians or white people because no one was saying it in the first place. "Lone wolf" or "deranged" is the default interpretation when a white person engages in act act of mass violence even where their ideological motivations are quite explicit.
For what it's worth I agree that Islamacists would be much less of a problem without the illegal meddling of powerful states (including the Saudis) in the affairs of third world countries.
I've seen some of their videos. Bloody terrifying (or anyone afraid of heights at least).
"They remove some of this propaganda material from the terrorist, but not everything, calming that some of it doesn't break their rules."
This just as it should be. If you want to say that ISIS represents the "pinnacle of human efforts to live as Allah demands we should" you're exercising freedom of speech. If you say "come join ISIS and help us kill infidels" you're recruiting for a terrorist organisation. Sure, sometimes it's a fine line and people will often get it wrong but making the effort is what democracies do and dictatorships have no interest in doing.
Look, I'm not anti-Google. I accept that it does in fact "quickly remove videos violating these policies when flagged by our users". But not wanting to look evil is fairly week motivation. The threat of lawsuits is a better one (even when they fail as I suspect this one will). And why is a company with the most powerful content detection algorithms in the world relying on users to flag objectionable videos. I suspect some extra motivation is in fact required.
Beijing and Texas would have so much in common?
Judging by how absurdly young Michael Palin looks, I'm afraid so.
Of course, here's quite likely to be repaired phones in a repair room along (probably considerably more) unrepaired ones. If the thief managed to grab just the good ones it suggest some degree of inside knowledge.
Then I thought "Sometimes an article needs to be manager-compliant".
an hour-long documentary about Shane MacGowan getting his teeth fixed.
I'd try to come up with a punning title but I'm afraid I would get it wrong.
Or they could simply decide to not have a baby until they both check out as safe. But that wouldn't generate any publicity.
Time to create a splinter sect of Pastafarianism. I've always thought that a beer volcano was a terrible waste.
on graphic design there.
Wasn't he the gorilla?
Not only that he appears to be wearing a holdeck.
Making Dunning-Kruger an art form since 1996.
Although the problem of "an excessive amount" of email has been solved Microsoft will continue to deliver to you, your fair an appropriate amount of spam. Your penis pills are safe.
Reminds me of the time Microsoft thought it would be a good idea to create "all sorts of possible ways" to allow (obliviously responsible and well-intentioned) companies to control remotely control people's computers via the browser.
"Value is what the market is prepared to pay".
Ordinarily, yes, but it's not, as is commonly insinuated, definitional. Sure investors and their advisors might not do better than chance but find one who'll admit that their decision aren't based on an understanding of market value. It's just that usually, their judgments are the only ones that happen to matter. In this case though, the court gets to decide. And whatever you might think of lawyers, in this case I'll side with them.
It's obviously 31/2" in diameter - how else could they re-purpose a harddrive arm as a magnetometer.
for asking a good question which elicited an excellent answer.
Historically in the UK, truth was a defence, but since the burden of proof was with the defendent it's a big strong to call it an absolute defence. I believe things have changed with the recent reform, though.
At least it can't complain by saying "my eyes are up here".
59K is scheduled to be announced next tuesday.
In most locations video makes no sense as you're targeting people on the move and in fact it may be dangerously distracting. Anything that makes video signage relatively less attractive is a good thing in my book.
"Still given they don't have the guts for that they should make her the next Doctor."
I'd definitely prefer to see her wielding a sonic screwdriver than a PPK. On the other hand maybe I should keep my sexual fantasies to myself.
Whatever system you have it would be crazy to use for high value sites like banks.
Well, the actual percentage of humans who used the enigma machine was pretty small too.
Dammit man, get back to it!. The coding I mean. And no "testing" till it's finished.
The DH88 Comet racer was also a pretty good-looking aircraft. In fact pretty much all the de Havilland's of the inter-war years had a definite elegance about them. I'd nominate the DH88 Drafon Rapide as the best looking airliner of all time.
And yes, Beluga Whales are indeed beautiful animals.
and guidelines are not laws.
Please check that your scripts are relevant before running them. (I think in this case you want the one about pointless bureaucracy.)
"Some popular IT news websites even fail to use HTTPS in their comments if you can imagine that."
Really, I find that ADAM IS A FREAKING GENIUS hard to believe.
It will surely be translated into the Chinese for "I'm impotent". (Now I'm wondering if that wasn't what Arthur was trying to say.)
NASA have quite got the whole disco ball thing yet.
but I have to go get my FEC file infected. Seriously, that's almost as good as the preacher who had to hire a rent boy to "lift his luggage".
get one printed at one of the online 3D printing outlets? 20-30 USD should cover it.
"First, stop putting capacitor in quotes."
Please continue to put 'capacitor' in quotes. Some of us appreciate accurate use of language.
