But did they grow their produce in their own feces?
If not, they failed the "science the shit out of Mars" test.

Wait, somone's parents were Ayn Rand and God? So Jesus did return in the form of Jerry Falwell, and we just thought he was a blowhard TV preacher?
Does El Reg have an onsite yoga instructor?
If you sell advertising/software/etc. in France, that revenue accrues to the French subsidiary, and can't be funneled to Ireland/Holland/Luxembourg/the Channel Islands/(insert name of tax haven du jour here) that alledgedly holds the intellectual property.
You don't need to create a turnover tax that will punish companies that are struggling with profitability already. Instead, make sure that the ones that are making money pay a reasonable share.
Is that if it plays out, then a huge chunk of the British political class and civil service now has their data out in the wild. If they starr getting robbed by ID thieves, then maybe you will see some action against crooks, data aggregators and privacy invaders.
The aliens gave up on us when they parsed Galway Girl and anything from One Direction out of our muddled radio traffic.
Since they seem to want to outdo Crap-ita and Con-cast/Scum-cast in the corporate incompetence Olympics.
Please feel free to vote or suggest alternatives!
(BTW, The Telegraph is reporting that Equifax holds credit/ID info on 44 million Britons. Ugh.)
Just in case anyone was thinking that an organization that possesses key identity databases on hundreds of millions of people might have a policy on doing F'ING PEN TESTING on all internet facing applications, it turns out that they don't.
Bleu you to hell in this case.
But sadly it got crushed in the marketplace, leaving a investors feeling drained and the employees with just a wrung-out husk of a company to satisfy their thirst for success.
Trump doesn't give a crap about any laws or rights that don't allow him to line his pockets. He needs to look tough on terrorism, and this is a cheap way to do it.
Yes, this was pretty standard "We're a big company doing deep, truly important things" high-concept messaging.
But I don't blame Peter. He needs to keep income coming in after GoT closes up shop next year.
Trump is not going to oppose the NSA over this. He needs them onboard to look tough on terrorism and he wants them happy enough that they stop leaking embarrassing stuff about communications between his campaign and Russia and other potentially hostile foreign entities.

And if the convicted person cannot adequately continue or pursue his lawsuit against the offending officers because he is in prison, doesn't have a lot of money and his testimony in court is going to be discounted by a jury because he is a convicted felon?
You throwing me in jail for 10 years and me suing you for $50K because you cut corners that got me removed from society for 10 years are not remotely equal punishments, nor do they put me in a position where I can thoroughly seek redress.
You had me until you mentioned that. Better make sure she always sails with at least one very large white bedsheet.
They goofed up and put it on their on demand website for an hour. Of course by the time the took it down it had been ripped.
The NSA has these capabilities, so of course the DIA wants to get into cyberwarfare too. Gotta grow that agency budget somehow!!
Being long-term unemployed or underemployed creates real societal problems. Marriages and romantic relationships are much more likely break up, children do worse physically and mentally, enthusiasm declines, suicide and mental illness increases, substance abuse increases, crime (especially domestic) increases and communities suffer.
I don't want to go Luddite, but we need to incorporate these costs into getting your shopping done more cheaply. We've already seen where this leads with trump and brexit, and that will be a picnic compared to where we could be in 10-15 years if the more dire job loss projections happen.
You needed to wait a couple more seconds, but still nice!
Especially now that keeping a few in a fishbowl means I can rationalize that I am not drinking alone.
(Sorry, all I could come up with)
Can we make some kind of astrophysical analogy using that?
Again, that's not a bug in the legislation, its a feature. It's just a feature that benefits them, not us.
It's probably still better for you than a McDonald's McRib!
I know it is my juvenile dark side and appreciation of The Simpsons talking, but now I am imagining a train station surrounded by Uber-cars calling out for arriving passengers:
1) Mike Hunt
2) Hugh Jass
3) Amanda Hugginkiss
Saying that Comcast's billing is a bigger issue than its quality of service is like choosing between a Phillips or flatness screwdriver when installing a lighting fixture. Either way, something is going to get screwed up. :)
I'm trying to figure out who I would rather see as the villain in this piece, but so far I can't choose a side.
Advertising under the tagline "Make America Bait Again!"
(Paris, because she's probably in the cast for one of the Sharknado movies)
But I'm not in favor of the large cuts in legal immigration involved. The 150,000 cap should be doubled, and
1) increase the salary target for H1-Bs. Specifically prevent H1-Bs from being used to replace American citizens and legal residents who aleady have jobs. Also make H1-Bs a one-year work visa, independent of an employer (no more losing your H1-B if you lose the job you were hired for serfdom)
2) Deport illegal immigrants and enforce fines and penalties on companies that hire them
3) Upon monitoring the workforce for bottlenecks, create temporary work visas in situation where we really need overseas labor
I pretty much ended my own affiliation with the electric power industry two decades ago. Back then the non-safety/storage knock on nuclear power was that it's was the only generation source that had ever bankrupted a U.S. utility. This isn't going to help.
(By the way, Regenistas will appreciate that the bankrupted utility was Washington Public Power System, which went by the acronym WPPS, which was in turn pronounced "whoops")
@jonathan1 In fact, he took the time out of his busy schedule to comment twice!
The hacker could have rewritten the script to bring the Sand Snakes back, and Joffrey.
Nah, he hasn't been made White House Communications Director. If that happens, then it is just a question of whether they will keep him on payroll through the weekend.
For Google's and Facebook's fundraising and revolving door with the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton's campaign. I guess turnabout is fair play, considering that the oil and other industries get hammered by the Democrats.
If you are a big company, you have to be smart enough to triangulate somewhat, so you don't end up getting skewered if the opposition party gets into power.
After which it will collapse to a white dwarf, and things will get incredibly cold on those moons.
500m years is not a lot of time to develop intelligent life anyway.
NASA knows the asteroid's path perfectly! If something happens, its not their fault that Earth swerved right into its way!
I wouldn't call the book anti-war by any stretch of the imagination. Basically the book not-so-intimated that humanity was going to have to wipe out the Arachnids, rather than try to find any basis to communicate and reach a peace. Hence the 5 gallon drum of Raid.
The book was much superior to the movie, but I appreciated the movie as both a satire of war movie cliches and a satire of the media state. Whoever ran the TV network in the Starship Troopers future is basically using the Fox News/MSNBC/RTV playbook from today's cable news industry.
I'll have to run down to Costco and get a 5 gallon drum of Raid.
This was going to be my point. It sounds like they are 95% of the way there, in that they have A) the car, B) the concept of driverless operation and C) the basic software principles involved. That took the last 100 years, and the final 5% to true driverless operation is going to take at least the next 5 years.
It would be less work, more time spent down at the pub, and the readership can fully embrace their current understanding that any IoT not specifically ID'd as well-done is probably total crap.
I call Freudian slip!
Yes, sponsoring the buffet table or open bar at the next Conservative and Labour party conferences is always a good move. Make sure you have very visible signage identifying you as the sponsor.
So the foxes were goading the badgers into volunteering to get two car batteries strapped to them and then fired at an airliner?
Yes, I suppose HM Government's approach does have the advantage of reducing public spending on expert advice.
Federal Aviation ADMINISTRATION (Obviously this article was not peer-reviewed!)
It sounds like the British Government is trying to present a fait accompli on drone usage, while not letting pesky facts get in the way.
They may or may not have been out of use, but the leaked NSA tools were effective enough that two of the vulnerabilities they exploited were used in recent global ransomware attacks.
There is the risk this spyware will get out into the wild. See "NSA hacking tools" for an example of that.
When Game of Thrones ends on Sky next year.
Sorry, had to work in the overused GoT house motto. It's El Reg though, so its either that or something like "Heathrow Airport! You will never find a more wretched hive of...." or "I for one welcome our (insert tragicomic overlord description) overlords...."
(Tux, because he doesn't mind that winter is coming...)
