That report states that they eat insects, which is exactly what I said and as fig trees don't support 1274 mammal species in the uk then I stand by what I said.
*Allow me to assure you that the smug look on your face will rapidly disappear when you are stung and if you happen to be allergic then the panic that follows when you realise you are entering anaphylactic shock will also wipe that grin off your chevvy chase.
*not that I wish it to happen to you but it can, does and has happened.
For immediate sting treatment, remember this:
As in alphabetic order.
Vespula vulgaris and Vespula germainca (two common UK wasp species) contribute nothing of worth.
Yeah, they hurt. Oddly, being stung is part and parcel for me but that one was in my upper eyelid.
Ordinarily, they itch and swell a bit. God knows what that little bastard pumped into me.
Only fair I suppose, I had just sprayed the nest with Ficam-D (THE wasp killer of choice for professionals).
In 13 years of dealing with the stripy little buggers I have been stung 11 times.
Killed hundreds of thousands of em though, potentially millions..
And less aggressive than wasps towards people.
A European hornet will sting because you interfered with it, wasps will sting you because its a Wednesday.
contribute *nothing* other than eating insects which has all the bird lovers up in arms.
As a pestie, this year I have dealt with quite a few but the worst time is apple fall time, THATS when they get nasty as the nests are nearing their end, the queen dies, the new queens leave and the workers are suddenly left with no young to tend to. So they have to go it alone. Feasting on fermenting fruit. Getting pissed and aggressive.
At the moment they are pretty docile but come September. especially if it is warm...
PS, Top Tip.
Use ant powder to kill wasps nests. Not fucking petrol!
If you can see where they are going in, puff some powder in there at night, repeat 24/48 hours later. Leave 3 days. repeat if necessary. If in the loft, use RED light as they cant see it.
Wear eye protection at least. A sting in the eye is extremely dangerous!
WARNING: I have a radio face anyway but this is a sting I took last year, this was 16 hours after the event.
It is a modified ovipositor.
Although queens will sting you, the primary purpose of it is to deposit eggs in the nest chambers.
Dear El-Reg, who the F*** does your fact checking?
Ace, Oric, tandy, sharp, timex.
a significant user base on here cut their teeth on a Sinclair / Timex computer.
It IS shit.
If you think the corners are sharp now, just wait until you print them with PLA.
I haven't seen a domestic 3d printer capable of printing anything like a smooth, rounded corner.
The nearest to "off-road" they ever get is going up the bloody kerb.
"Its the supermatch game, supermatch game"...
By "damaged" I had assumed physical damage. Committed over the interwebs.
He didn't "damage" anything.
The law is an ass.
Sadly, there is nothing even remotely funny about Cressida Dick's running of the MET.
"At no point did the Swedes say he was free to leave".
At no point did they detain him or confiscate his passport either.
Horse, stable door, bolted.
Rosstech is right, it wont run PROPERLY.
The last thing you want is a dodgy ff or a0 going in your ECU.
By "organise" I assume you mean "follow the will of the people"?
Or do you mean just fuck it up so much that we just give in and let Treason May ride roughshod all over democracy?
Oh you jest but when I showed my mate a picture I took of mercury transiting the sun the other year, his first question was "is that the moon"? When I explained it was the sun with its closest body passing across it, question 2 was "Did you take the picture at night"?
Shoot me now.
" Re: Man on the sun
"if we can put a man on the moon, surely we can put a man on the sun"
And as the great Ali G himself said: "We send them at night when the sun is cold."
Well Mercury managed it, billions of years ago and its just a lump of rock!
Being "incorrectly fingered by software" doesn't bode well for the automated prostrate checking machine.
But THEY cant fix, repair or replace your keyboard.
They know WHY it's failed and could write a 10,000 word essay on the subject, but not how to get it back up and running again.

scratch proof, it's scratch resistant.
Very very different things indeed.
Meh, overkill. A cheap Chinese GPS jammer will achieve much the same for a tenth of the cost.
As long as its not Crapita or the Govt.
Because its Indian.
And we all know how impoverished they are, what with their probes to Mars..
Billions of £$€ in aid and 90% of the population have no clean water or sanitation and live in absolute shit.
The sooner we say TATA to TATA the better. They proved their lack of worth when they bought what was left of the UK steel industry and promptly fucked that up.
"'Premium' service where parents can bid on 'A' grades for their sprogs".
Isn't that what most of the "elite" do anyway with "fees" to schools etc.
It's just dressed up as "donations" anyhow. "Why thank you Tarquins parents. Here are his 9 A levels.
"He scored an A in "Alphabet" an A in basic remedial maths, an A+ in prole shafting, A in quelling peasant revolts, A in abusing staff, an A++ in virtue signalling".... Etc Etc
It's been happening for years anyway as not *one of the dumb fuckers in parliament / lords seems able to grasp the fact that the country is on its arse, wages have dropped, prices of energy and food have soared, services are at breaking point but in their gated community, all is well.
*One or two exceptions but only one or two.
Cynic? Moi? Most definitely.
The chance to palm it off to someone else who then takes the rap when it all goes titsupclusterfuck is just too much for them to resist.
Crapita, meet the rotted corpse of Carillion. Your dual occupancy grave awaits.
Came home to find 2 emails saying I had purchased two iTunes vouchers worth $80 and £50.
I figured they were junk but a quick check revealed they were genuine.
Cue frantic phones calls to ebay, paypal and my bank.
I got them cancelled and the bank refunded me but I was stumped how they had done it, until I checked a log from my firewall software. 1000's of connection attempts and eventually they broke through a semi-rigid password so I suspect a rainbow table was used.
It woke me up, my password for windows RDP is now some 30+ characters, ONLY my tablet and works PC are allowed access and the firewall blocks ANY other RDP connection except those two.
I'll raise you to a local councillor who, when watching some recorded footage of some vandalism could NOT grasp that despite asking, nay demanding to see what was to the left or right off camera that a recording is just that, a series of past events. He could not grasp this. This was a councillor, be afraid, be very afraid.
this doesn't turn out to be some vapourware ala Adobes anti blurring / shake "removal" debacle from a few years ago.
What's with all the banks that were around in the 80's then died off and are now being "reborn". TSB, Williams and Glynns (which has died a death before even getting going) and I'm sure there will be others.
Banks are a con and are not their to "look after" your money, rather exploit it for their own means.
WHY can I not be paid in cash by my employer?
WHY does a utility company have to apply for a court order to reclaim any missed payments but a bank can simply take that money, EVEN if its not there THEN slap a charge on me for "going overdrawn".
I would dearly love to see an end to banks.
TDR: Ah, a "cable is buggered apx here" detector.
Infra Red laser.
I have a 5 watt one here that can ignite things at about 3 meters although its optics are rubbish.
Still, it does induce fire quite rapidly. Tyres are easy, what with them being black! Would be interesting to see it on something very white.
cheap "safes". In said safe I kept ALL my lock picking gear (it's a bit of a hobby of mine) including the 8pin cylinder pick to pick the safe.
Ahh yes, the safe that the batteries had expired and I had no idea where the key was. Probably put safe (no pun intended) years ago and long since buried somewhere.
So, knowing it WAS relatively easy to pick off I went to the local lock smith to be told "cant open it mate, you'll need to angle grind it!" "But there's a pick in the safe, surely YOU, a LOCKSMITH, have a pick and the knowhow to use it". "No mate, as I said I can angle grind it open". So I left.
Went home and started to think how to open it. Then I saw, under the keypad a recessed "earphone" socket! Bingo, a connector for an external battery pack!!!!
Safe opened, picks removed. Safe then repaired and new lock with keys fitted.
as if it were needed, that blocking EVERY advert from EVERY site is the only way to go.
They could just up the price of printers and increase their durability then drop the price of ink from arse reaming to moderate fumble and people will buy the ink.
We have some SOHO HP printer at work, the IT dept decided to save money they would use compatible carts. The Print head now will not print in yellow as the cheap cart has wrecked it.
Me, I have an Epson L1800 with ink tanks, MUCH more reasonable print price and superb photo quality to boot.
Yes, these days the blow up so quickly.
Contraction of "you are". Your is a possessive meaning "belonging to".
Wouldn't matter anyway!
You're MY wife now!!!!
Pander to the minorities and completely disregard the wishes of the OVERWHELMING egg eating populace.
"Asked at the start of an audience Q+A whether the UK was at cyberwar with Russia, Hannigan replied that it probably was. "It certainly feels like we are in a state of conflict," he mused".
And with that one statement, any credence disappeared up his own arse.
FEELS like it???
Have a word with yourself man..
Handy distraction for the other shitstorm that is brexit??
No more than the rest of us I would imagine.
I can feel them quake as we speak...
