Re: Darwin award
The Darwin Award has been amended to include people who survive but render themselves incapable of breeding. This dose of radiation should qualify one way or the other.
It’s already known that there was some interbreeding between the groups, but the new results beg the question of how an early Spanish human ended up with Siberian DNA.
Re: This is a tough one...
When they have both finished they leave their respective rooms and hand in their work.
Its the same.
Fat chance of that. Unless the assignment was very simple, their code will not be the same.
Re: Unusual Case.
Linux is older than XP and no one would call it prehistoric.
But Linux isn't a decrepit pile of code like XP.
Burning hydrogen versus kerosene
One big benefit: the result is just steam (albeit very hot).
Re: Not guilty plea for 80 in a 65

"Christopher Columbus: Couldn't figure out where he was going, no clue where he was, and he did it on borrowed money. Now THERE'S an American hero!"
Columbus was an Italian, working for Spain. Try opening your history book before opening your mouth....
Cue Jack Nicholson: "You can't handle the truth!"
Re: nickel-56, amirite?
"but why does it jet out like that?"
Maybe it's doing a Mister Creosote impersonation: "I need a bucket!"
"The sour-smelling signals relay reams of information for other animals to read," said Kevin Theis, an MSU postdoctoral researcher.
The primary message being "My arse needs a wash."
Re: Cool..but also oddly disturbing
Therefore we are the first, or among the first.
Says you, buddy.
A possible sponsor
Make it Anheuser-Busch; then they can jettison the batch of Budweiser out the airlock (where it belongs).
Ignore the obvious choice
"Guy who did IBM keyboard design didn't want to give us our single button."
Was there something wrong with using the SysRq (System Request) key? It was the obvious choice, and that key has been around since the PC/AT days.
Re: British or European
In the particular case of accents, a British accent is very distinct from a European one, so this Texan is very confused.
Considering that many Europeans learn to speak English with a British accent, the confusion is understandable.
Re: Rare but deadly
The only defense we currently have is our nuclear ICBM arsenals.
Some asteroids are solid lumps of rock/metal, and others are essentially huge rubble piles. Hit one with a nuke and you're likely to get hundreds of (now radioactive) meteors raining down on your head.
I hope that the quality of Foxconn's solar panels is better than the quality of the motherboards that they make for Dell. I'm getting really tired of replacing all the bad capacitors....
As long as you remembered to
bribeincentivize the right public officials....
Re: Burden of Proof
But this trove wasn't considered in Langenbach's plea bargain, nor were the 194 items he had listed on eBay at the time of his arrest, since the police couldn't prove that the items were fraudulently purchased.
Did it not occur to the police to check the boxes in his house for home-made bar codes? That would be a dead giveaway that the items were fraudulently purchased.
Dang! I thought no one would notice!
Are you now arguing that they should do the same again?
On the contrary: Representative Amash is trying to undo a previous blunt-force approach.
Re: love the USofA
Gotta love those morales.
What does Morales have to do with this? He doesn't wear sagging pants.
(Learn how to spell, you dolt.)
A word from Mother Nature
I have altered the terms of your lease. Pray I do not alter them further.
Re: What destroyed Netware.. Perfect Office!!
didn't they buy Word Perfect?
Yes. Novell bought WordPerfect in June 1994 and sold it to Corel in January 1996.
In other news...
He's also suing silverware manufacturers for making him fat.
Not a surprise
Snowden doesn't specifically use the "L" word, but he makes it clear that he believes Obama is not a man of his word.
Obama is a politician. And in other news, the sun rises in the east, and water is wet....
Okay, who forgot to comment out the legacy ICBM code in the flight control software?
Re: Sauce for the goose
This is what happens with lack of oversight, plus politicians holding meetings behind closed doors. You can't trust f---ing politicians any further than you can throw them....
Re: re. Buzz Aldrin video
Buzz should have kicked him in the jewels for good measure!
Note that I said "the author", not "the peanut gallery".
Re: Wild bugs have parasites....
"We could use PETA members instead of insects."
No, too much crap in them, not worth the effort to clean.
"the topic is associated with climate change."
It is? Where does the author say one word about climate-related anything in the article?
Let me put it to you this way: if I was stranded on a desert island with nothing to drink but a case of American Budweiser, I'd drink sea water instead.
Re: I already have a cellar full of very long life beers
American Budweiser doesn't have a "best by" date. It's best not to brew it in the first place....
That ain't no DIP switch
The front panel clearly says "Alarm". The product specs state that it comes with "2 Digital In and 1 Digital Out Alarm connector".
"driven by our ancient desires"
Suddenly, I'm craving a beer and a bacon sarnie....
Re: Suck my Glock..
I owned a Glock 17 a few years ago. The trigger insert does not qualify as a real safety in my book. If you keep a round in the chamber and anything gets inside the trigger guard and pulls back on the trigger, it will fire. The Glock's internal hammer is nice, but I prefer a real safety switch on my pistols.
The REAL reason
Microsoft made this deal just to artificially inflate their Windows 8 license count (even more).
Re: I can't wait.....
Note from Apple's lawyers: We have a patent on shit.
Re: 300+$ for such a limited tool?
On a side note: it's £299, not $299. £1 = $1.62 U.S., so that would make it $484.

Desperate or drunk?
Homo sapiens sapiens shagged Homo sapiens neanderthalensis? I didn't know that beer was invented that long ago....
