Sounds like the 'special' offered at several Japanese brothels. Or so I'm told.

Sounds like the 'special' offered at several Japanese brothels. Or so I'm told.
But how to act on that belief... so far my favourite thing to do is called "hesitate"
Mine is called "procrastinate", simply because it takes longer to type.
Another triumph for the navigation system.
It wasn't the nav system's fault, not at all. The poor machines fell victim to the Barmouth Triangle, and are lost now to time and space.
I suppose there's a chance they'll be returned when the UFOs make contact, landing as scheduled at Aberystwyth Golf Club.
Let's see Donald put that one to the test.
Orwell coined the term prolefeed to describe superficial distractions distributed by the ruling elite to keep the people under control, but I don't think he would ever have imagined that a significant proportion of humanity would freely generate and willingly consume their own prolefeed knowing that it was being used to categorise and unduly influence them.
Talking of which, what has Donald been saying about Comey today?
I'll still be walking. And watching my back.
Now where is my one time pad?
You left it in the pub. Again.
It's not anything particular to healthcare. The root problem is the willingness of a subset of politicians (usually those sufficiently ruthless and mendacious enough to have climbed the greasy pole) to abandon principle in favour of what they prefer to think of as pragmatism. You can find examples throughout history: the one which initially comes to mind for me is the way servicemen were deliberately exposed to above-ground nuclear tests in Australia in the 1950s.
But surely that has been fixed in Windows 7/8/10 already?
Let me just test that.
(If you don't see a second comment from me here, you'll know it's not been fixed.)
fewer of them will be shared
Well, yes, in the purely physical sense...
Is there a secret club that one must be a member of, which allows access to this trough of cash that all these incompetent outsourced companies have their noses in?
Yes, a very secret -- absolutely Top Secret -- club: donors to a political party. Bunging money at the Tories usually pays off very well, but on occasion members have been known to hedge their bets by supporting their local Blairite. Promises of lucrative directorships being awarded to senior party members are also known to help.
Many members of this secret club bemoan the fact that donorship in the UK doesn't pay off half as well as donorship in the US. Some are working to change that.
and they are starting to fire up their old MySpace profiles
That will cheer up Rupert Murdoch no end.
CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN
Lets face it, it's not like they are known for their technological skills.
Not difficult. They already know they just have to go and talk to the people who know all the right hashtags.
Asda has withdrawn all Damascus Beef products from their shelves as a precaution.
Two parrots sat on a perch.
An Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman walk into a bar.
"Ouch!," they say.
None of it, as usual.
Not to be confused with Scientology which has its own doctrine concerning the creative process
The doctrine known as 'lying'.
OK, so I'm not in Tibet but I did spend the last 30 minutes in the next best thing: my spare room at home where it can get a bit chilly and the Wi-Fi struggles to connect.
I bet your wi-fi password is 'Shambhala'.
If we ever encountered a solar mass or smaller black hole, we wouldn't know much about it
If a solar mass black hole drifted into our solar system we would know about it very quickly, because the planets would take up new orbits dependent upon its location and line of motion. All the probes out there would stop pointing their antennae at Earth since they would no longer be able to calculate correctly where Earth was.
The less massive the black hole the less likely it is that we'd find out about it before it came close enough to harm us. There could be a black hole of a hundred tonnes mass in the Earth's core right now, for all we know, but even then we'd probably be able to detect it if its orbit around the Earth's centre of mass was as much as a hundred kilometres or so.
There are plenty of good arguments for moving Parliament out of London for a few years, but Banjul is perhaps a little further away than most of us were expecting. Still, I'm willing to let them give it a try...
NASA test pilots will fly it at altitude across sections of the US and see what kind of disturbance it causes people on the ground.
I think it's pretty clear what will disturb people on the ground.
"Run, it's the UFOs!"
Well, Budweiser is brewed from rice. Then again, Budweiser isn't beer.
Editorial staff are vehemently opposed to this project, so the successful applicant will require superior interpersonal and conflict resolution skills.
In other words, you have to know which end of a cattle prod is which.
How could we tell?
Why would we want to inflict that on our tourist industries? Better to stick to the moral high ground, sit back, point and laugh.
Only if they weren't funded in the 1980s from New York, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia.
France?! You quisling! Officer, arrest this man.
Irony is Trump making claims that others are not paying their fair share of income tax while he uses the excuse that his own taxes are still being audited by the IRS* as the lame reason for not releasing his income taxes.
It isn't irony, it's hypocrisy. Trump isn't sufficiently self-aware to know this, or he just doesn't care because he knows his target audience will cheer him to the rafters even when he states six contradictory things before breakfast.
Or it needs someone asked to unlock their phone to say, "Have you got a search warrant? No? Then I decline" and for it to go through the courts to make case law.
Clearly the minister has not thought through the potential educational impact of such a move.
Thus continuing in the fine tradition of government education policy since 1988. At least 1988.
You don't get to compete unless you are top-class..
Or at the very least have access to the right drugs.
One of them looks to be drifting off into the Irish Sea.
Yeah. This was the giveaway:
subscribe to receive a batch of four cartridges a month
That's the first weekend of each month dealt with. What about the rest of the month?
I'm amazed of the deep knowledge of French culture Mr. Dabbs has.
He always knew that hanging on to those French letters would serve him well.
gobbled in the office
These days you can get arrested for doing that at work.
Unfortunately I can confirm that category d) doesn't work just by itself.
About two dozen years ago I installed a TCP/IP stack and Netscape on a work colleague's computer, then proceeded to show him the basics of how t'WWW worked. When it came to demonstrating search engines I thought I'd use his academic specialism as an example and typed in 'video live art'. Big mistake.
"Read my lips: you can trust us."
Maybe they'll be able to reduce the costs by selling the data the software gathers on the open market.
The vast majority of it viral particles.
If there's any chance of helping UK fishermen at all, I think it only right that Michael Gove be packed off right now in a rocket to investigate.
But I'm starting to wonder if perhaps we shouldn't put out an APB for his second neuron. The one he appears to be left with seems to be lonely.
Leaky skull syndrome. Also known as 'firing on all colanders'.
And driven by a bloke named Gene.
They've just moving on from the phalanges to the metatarsals.
Academics and industry said the impact could be mitigated, if the government finds a way to replace lost funding, and also provide clarity on how the movement of people and customs regulations will change in a post-Brexit world.
That's an effing big if. Anyone willing to put a quid on it all happening?
Our best effort was 'pabell posh' (Lit. posh tent). Anyone know what it is in German?
A better designed and engineered tent, I expect.
I hope I'm not the only one who interpreted 'attending to the wants of nature' as tossing off a shrew.
No? Just me then. Look, if a few more of you realised that rodents don't have thumbs, maybe you'd be more sympathetic to their plight.
Give it a couple of hours and the Creationists will be all over this, proclaiming it as evidence for God's fountains of the deep causing the flooding of the Earth in 40 days and 40 nights. Hallelujah!
