Dammit. Beat me to the Flesh Gordon reference. Have an upvote.

That there's a market opening for an all live action* remake of Flesh Gordon.
*I mean no crappy cgi, of course.
Re: Well ...
Can I put one in the other? It would still make more sense than US gun policy.
would show dangerous signs of intelligence.
"Share on Facebook the most viral stories on Entertainment Weekly"
I give up. There is nothing I can say about this
I guess you've never been asked to stand back
so the slow reader can see something in the corner. Now, multiply that by 100.
Also if you squint
you can just make out the dashcam for recording wacky orbital near misses.
Well I'm off
to work on my manuscript of 'Tintin and the Lesbian Separatist Collective Mystery'. Tens if not hundreds of sales await.
On second thoughts I'll let someone else do it. I'd rather have the plonk.
"Which country are you in where you can purchase penicillin over the counter?"
I didn't realise I needed to wear a dirty mac and talk in code just to get an antibiotic prescription filled. More seriously, I have seen people furious at the pharmacist for doing what what's called in Australia "brand substitution". Even suggesting that they might want to save a significant amount of money can be taken as a mortal insult.
By a curious co-incidence
it also coincides with the introduction of the potato thus proving that the Irish are the true philosophers and that you should eat more chips.
Since it's not mentioned in the article
I was going to point out that the Bragg cluster is in fact named after Lawrence and William Bragg but I won't because it would involve making a terrible pun.
"Bet you didn't see that coming"
It was on the cards.
Re: So they've "solvedcd" a problem that does not really exist?
I didn't say the problem was rejection.Most such surgery goes well as the work of Fred Hollows* showed. But there's a small but significant proportion of cases which don't go well and there mostly the result of the eye not adapting well to something it didn't evolve to contain.
*I'm not sure how well Hollows is known outside of Australia, but if you haven't heard of him look him up. Edit:I see you have heard of him.
Re: So they've "solvedcd" a problem that does not really exist?
Ignoring more general implications of actually having created a working organ from stemcells (that can't be significant can it?) cataract surgery is a pretty simple procedure done under local anesthesia. The difficult part is managing the consequences of having a foreign body implanted in the eye. That's doable in a country with decent health care, not so much in the third world. So yes this does solve a real problem.
Re: Bernoulli's Principle ?
Well we could discuss it, but maybe we should stick to something more tractable like the existence of god.
that following in the footsteps of the great tech pioneers it's made from paper. Can't figure out the rest of the acronym though.
Dougal rhymes with Google. Shouldn't be too difficult to work in a Father Ted joke there, or for extra points, try the Magic Roundabout.
Let's face it it's always spam.
I think I'll buy one
and keep the PLA busy watching the accelerometer data trying to work out if I'm watching porn. When the Chinese regime falls you'll have me to thank.
Re: How are you going to see to land it?!
Of course there will be cameras in the nose - computers don't have eyes.
build it over existing rail lines
Taking a 500m curve at mach 5 may be Superman's idea of a fun ride but it ain't mine
UNSW may be his alma mater
But as the article indicates he's put his misbegotten youth behind him and is a Queenslander now. What next - blaming Queensland for Fosters!
I'd love to add a Zero to my collection
but I'm beginning to think that 'Zero' stands for the number in stock at any reliable outlet.
"1gb of ram isn't enough"
The Pi has a special feature to deal with that - it doesn't run Flash.
Edit: Seems I can't add an icon after posting so please imagine the joke alert.
I looked into this a while back
His share of his his father's business when he took it over was around $100 m give or take a factor of two. He's now worth 4.5 billion according to Forbes but a figure as low as 2 billion is plausible. Which means, if I crunched the numbers correctly, he could just as well invested the money and spent his life on the golf course. (Does Trump place golf - it's probably a bit too genteel for his image.) Or he could have just let his underlings run the company and take all the credit. (What was I saying about his image?)
Dangerous not mad
The guy knows exactly what he is doing. He'll say whatever he thinks will play in order to get what he wants (and he's very good at that) but like a dog chasing a car. . .
I've always found it easy to pay for crack
Just use cash.
Well, I will refuse to watch thermal imaging porn
I want desperately to hang onto the belief that all those orgasms are real.
Yes I know it's canonical
but I wouldn't be terribly frightened of a killer robot shooting at me with all the power of a dim lightbulb.
Damn I knew I was doing something wrong
I was searching for 'porn' in Office.
The article doesn't blame Trump for low wages in America but I do
Doesn't Trump present himself not just as a prominent businessman but as a business leader. Didn't he have a TV show in which he purported to teach people how business is done. Trump is already a part of the problem and will continue even if he doesn't become POTUS.
It's all done with mirrors
Or at least it was in Charles Stoss' Acellerando. I forget the precise details but it involved dropping part of the sail and using the reflected the light for deceleration. Of course if you're just going to Mars you'd probably want to send the reflector ahead and you'd still have to solve the problem of making the system work at a distance of more than a few hundred km.
Re: But there's no fear.
A few years ago I would have said the same but climbing to the top of the radio tower in the last Tomb raider scared the shite out of me.
That rats eat the seeds and/or seedlings of the native trees has been known for some time. Nature can be surprising sometimes.
I spent a non-negligible amount of time try to work out why you'd want SSL on an internal bus. Maybe it's time to move to FLA (four letter acronyms).
"resembles the so-called Caspian Sea Monster"
I'm sure it will be more stable when the missile launch tubes are installed.
Don't worry you aren't missing much - you have to be ridiculously high for it to be remotely convincing and it doesn't come with the phone number of your local drug dealer. But I second your motion for a Google flight sim - even the rather dodgy Google 3D buildings put the Microsoft autogen scenery to shame.
I think that
In the future I'll stick to the astrophysics articles.
"arbitrary code execution in backend”
I think I saw that in a video once.
That sphere doesn't look especially spherical. Are the gravity waves particular intense at the Vulture South eyrie.
Re: So . . . . .
1. The energy doesn't run out it just gets spread progressively thinner (at least for light in a vacuum and gravity waves that's were your model falls short).
2. The same analogy applies to light and yet we manage to see distant galaxies.
3. It helps to have a very energetic source and a very sensitive detector.
For really high temperatures you need a jam-based pastry.
you missed the section about pronoun dropping.
The answer to that question
Is probably the same as to "do you intend to keep the same phone for the next 12 years".
Re: I'm fairly sure....
Well if they projected it on the white wall they used for the filming. . .
you mean 'U' for 'unwatchable'? Sarcastic bastard the BBFC.
"vitiate the youth of Pakistan”
I think they're onto something. Hard to work up the youth (read: young men) into a righteous (and sometimes murderous) when they're all sitting around with a silly smile on their face.
