Not mere speed, but inappropriate speed for the conditions, something that fixed camera fines and even smart motorways aren't capable of determining.
"You're dropping it wrong."
So you blame the article for your inability to pay attention for more than one or two sentences?
No wonder twitter caught on so readily...
Good. They were a shitty clickbait rag that had a long history of publicising the private lives of people without any care for the consequences of their actions.
I suppose you also object to study, lie , yield and act. In fact, for consistency's sake, you should probably object to all these other words that are both nouns and verbs as well, given how many are nouns derived from the verb form and vice-versa.
Or you could accept that language does this stuff all the time and learn to live with it.
The fact that application has other, longer-standing meanings than "program running on a computer".

Nah. Call it The First Hints Of A Gravitas Shortfall.
Sounds like someone's a Iain M Banks fan...
They already were. By merging the management of long-term storage, operations and infrastructure, they found they were suddenly swimming in cash.
Four.......knots! *shakes around a bit more*
Odd, I've seen studies asserting the exact opposite. It's almost as if the entire field of behavioural psychology is rife with confirmation bias and cherry-picking to prove dubious political points.
I have, a few times, before I got around to rooting my tablet and installing adaway. The damn things fling the page around so much that you can end up tapping on them when the link you thought you were pressing suddenly shifts half a screen down to accommodate the enormous image that wasn't there a moment earlier.
The reg is particularly prone to this one, with those enormous banners that appear at the top and push the entire site down by a good quarter of the screen.
Bits of it did.
I have found that the best source of LED lighting is aliexpress. I've got my whole house lit with a bunch of next-gen LED bulbs from there. They're a fraction of the cost of buying the poorly made, overly expensive and annoyingly dim crap available here, and they don't appear to suffer much in the way of heating issues.
One downside though: they're universally Edison screw, so you will have to stock up on suitable fixtures or get adapters.
Reliable as in not tampered with between source and client.
Can't find the actual paper, but from the description it sounds like a data dredge. You can bet that they split the original sample up into smaller and smaller pieces until a spurious correlation popped out.
If only they'd paid attention to Dr North...
Russia is a member of the ECHR. This would be well within the court's remit.
It's a licence to receive live television broadcasts, which is why iplayer live is covered by it, but using the tv to watch dvds isn't.
Its entirely fear-mongering. The vans are a fiction thought up in the 50s, when tv was still seen as a bit magical and science could do anything you could imagine. Nothing but propaganda.
The station's orbit is inclined far too high for that. One of the comprises required to get the Russians involved was that it had to pass over their launch sites, otherwise the fuel costs to align their launchers with the station would have been prohibitively expensive. Unfortunately that means it can't be used as a way station to the moon for the same reason.
This is the very reason why our legal system presumes innocence unless sufficient proof can be brought to convict.
Sadly, on this issue in particular, our legal system is inexorably being inverted to presume guilt.
Unfortunately, and with increasing frequency these days, dark humour tends not to translate well on the internet.
just give me a modern equivalent of the n900 and I'll be happy.
you hear that, nokia? one man's happiness! surely that's worth more than a million sales?
oh well. gimme anyway.
A downvote? Seriously? Does context mean nothing to you people?
Comment quality around these parts had taken a real dive...
These smart light things are all sold on the premise of saving money and energy by having finer control over your lights and things, though they cost so much and use so much that any savings are pretty much imaginary. If you want to make real savings, ditch the smart crap and buy a job-lot of next-gen led bulbs from china on aliexpress. You can buy similar bulbs here, of course, but they put out less than half the light and cost four times as much.
Got the idea from watching this chap. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nme8T2yLhL0
Oh yes, the technology worked that way, but the detector vans themselves never existed. They were pure propaganda designed to scare people into paying up.
I ticked the box. I got another letter six months later. Ticked the box. Another letter six months later. Repeat ad nauseum.
I chuck them in the bin now.
There is actually a sound reason for using cassette tapes. They're robust, they're simple and they're reliable. Digital recording can still just magically disappear (the more general magical disappearing properties of evidence contrary to a case notwithstanding), whereas a tape is bloody difficult to wipe effectively.
It's the same reason solicitors still tend to use fax machines for important legal documents, and why hansard is printed on vellum.
Camilla's back and on the sauce again, it seems. Bottoms up!
I was under the impression his most widely celebrated role was Regarding Henry.
What, no mention for the Department of Administrative Affairs? Sir Humphrey will be disappointed.
France and Germany can hint until they're blue in the face. Article 50 is quite explicit about how it is to be invoked. The government invokes it. Not the people, not the legislature, but the government.
No, transonic is when airflow around different parts of the aircraft are above, at, or slightly below the speed of sound. The dive is irrelevant.
They should make the rockets out of unobtanium, which would mean they wouldn't need an fuel at all to get airborne.
Another who confuses the us first amendment, protecting free speech from restriction by the state, with the natural right to free speech.
I have a button.
And the wobbly stack, too. Needs more struts.
... it raises their reputation by comparing them to skiddies?
Maybe he read about the leidenfrost effect and misunderstood the applications.
They use glue in a lot of cases these days, especially for keyhole surgery. My appendix scar is so light I often have trouble finding it.
The wife told me once of a particular publication of a book, in Germany, that garnered some criticism as, around a third of the way through, our heroes sat down for a delicious meal of branded, canned soup.
The book was Sourcery, by Terry Pratchett.
With that in mind, I'd say that the practice of inserting adverts into unrelated text at arbitrary points has a worrying weight of precedent.
Technically they already did that, it's just that they dropped it in such a way that it missed.
There is this amazing new device called a "shower".
I have already encountered people unironically describing themselves as "devout" pastafarians. People are starting to treat it as a legitimate set of beliefs and a religion, which I find amusing as all hell because they're exactly the sort of uncritical crowd-followers that the whole thing was originally created to mock.
