Is the lead programmer on this called Bryce by any chance?

Assuming we take the police at their word that excessive speed was a factor in 12% of all accidents. Does this just mean that 12% of accidents involved people speeding or that the speed was actually the cause? Driving around, it seems that nearly everybody is breaking the speed limit, judging by the way the red lights come on as we approach a camera. I'll be really conservative and estimate that 50% of all drivers break the speed limit.
Now, if 12% of accidents involve somebody speeding, and 50% of drivers speed, this acually indicates that fast drivers are less likely to be involved in an accident.
And that is why I was doing 180mph through a residential area, the defence rests its case your honour ;D
At last, finally a chance to try out all of those fancy new weapon systems we have been developing which turned out to be too controversial for Iraq.
Now all we have to do is enrage some group there is no sympathy for, say black moslem students, and then we can get out the microwave cannon for a test blast.
"She said it had not been decided whether the text of the UK's letter to Commissioner Viviane Reding's office will be made available." That's ok, I'll just read it as it passes through my servers. Nobody here has a problem with that do they? Not that your opinion matters, because I'll be doing it secretly anyway.
I always encourage my boy 9 & 11 to provide fake login details for anything they want to do on the web, even if it is legitimate. They are not interested in sex yet, "yecchh kissing", but when they are I guess they will be ready, whatever age that happens to be. They actually told the truth about their age on one site, and it came back with some nonsense about wanting me to fax permission for them to join, easier and quicker to just create another false id.
Would these be the same intelligence experts who swore blind that Iraq was crawling with WMD's? I would not trust them to tell me the time of day.
On the other hand I'd be very surprised if China or the Palestinians were not doing everything in their power to keep tabs on the US. It's not like their networks are hard to hack (see Gary McKinnon).
I think you missed something from your calculations. The fuel has to be delivered to the cars to get your 32.5% figure. How about if you factor in the difference between supplying the power stations and ferrying the petrol to every garage in the land. I would not presume to put figures to this, but I reckon it swings the balance towards the hybrid.
I have a plusnet account, and for the last year I've generated a new email address for every new contact of the form firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea being that if I start to get spam, I can tell who's address book got raided, and also filter out that address.
It was all clean until two days ago when suddenly I started to get spam on several of these addresses at once.
Glad to know that it was not me that got hacked, but very annoyed that it was my isp that blew it in such a big way.
