Note 'or' not 'and'.
Maybe the word planet should be removed from IAU definitions, they come up with their own terms, and everyone else just call Pluto a planet.
I seem to recall that a key remapping function was quite common for games of the day.
Fogarty only got one point. What a dweeb!
Better get the cat food in
There's always this idea that when fusion started at the proto-solar core that the produced radiation, 'swept away' the accretion disk. I reckon the early Sun probably swept some of itself away as well, leaving a more exposed fusion core before the present day internal structure began to form.
The Universe is, like, the most mysterious thing. Ever.
I suppose we mean light to be visible light, that which we mainly get from the sun and the atmosphere allows through. Maybe we should talk about electromagnetic radiation instead.
Wouldn't worry, they died off a long thyme ago.
What for? We can already do it here.

Just moved to iD. Poor customer service. £10/m for 8 GB
I’ll take the cheap data, thanks.
clever use of memes and puns involving characters with double meanings
Ah yes, search for "Mr train going into Mrs tunnel" at Baidu
Ha, and there was I thinking that Hell's Angels just drink beer and have axe throwing competitions.
Having walked in UK mountains for practically all of my adult life, there are nice examples of long, thin obelisk-type rock fragments around, some many metres in length e.g. the frost-swept summits of Welsh Glyderau, shattered by freeze-thaw since well before the last ice age.

Re: Visual Basic
I use VBA a lot in Office and it gets me out of all sorts of pickles, there are many use cases, it gets an unfair press I think!
So something like this then:
At least something positive might come out of this!
Such short term thinking!
Opportunity has had a good innings and may well still yet survive.
Many lessons learned during these missions will no doubt improve / extend expectations for future visits.
I remember when we ‘got the internet’ at work in 1996, Luddite I was sharing the office with’s first comment was, “So, can you get porn on that?”. A quick check at playboy.com revealed that indeed you could!
It's not that bad!

I was hovering on the upvote button until the sexbots comment.
Is your male friend "stout"?
Just having reach 50 this year and ended a relationship a year ago I got onto match.com.
As other replies here, I sent about 15 sincere and genuine messages without any hint of reply before giving up (and meeting someone new the old fashioned way). Since I'm not the sort of person to spam just anything warm with boobs, it takes me a while to find someone I actually want to write to, and then to discover they may well miss my message because of all the other crap they get.
This age bracket is tricky too, many suitors are divorced and the traditional 'man older than woman' pairings are being explored with many women seeking an age range around their own but with a large bulge (ahem) towards the younger side: "sick of husband, divorced, young buck required for oo-la-la".
I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that (best of luck!), just that it is fanciful, as are dating sites in general.
My advice is that you are most likely to find a soul mate through normal processes but it may require some effort beyond a cursory look on your phone before going to sleep: join a club or society, frequent new bars, and keep going until you are noticed.
In my view dating sites can provide a glimmer of hope and allow you to at least view (hopefully real) examples of the gender of preference and wonder 'what if', while you go about normal life until someone real comes out of absolutely nowhere (as is often the case).
What a blockhead!
At least it shows there is a hurricane!

My Scouts used to sing that 20 years ago, it was just a “Scout song”, I never really saw any relationship between that and some sort of capitalist conspiracy.
Nah, they missed ROI
No pleasing some people
news about QF 32 was splashed across the TV
Reminds me of Airplane (1980) where the in flight movie is showing a fiery aeroplane crash scenario
The article was posted in the Science section.
sovereign claims cannot be made
Why did they put a flag on it then?

There was cake, but they weren't allowed to eat any of it.
potentially infect the asteroid with terrestrial trash
Sshhh, no one tell Philae it’s terrestrial trash.
whopping eight billion miles
Even that not-planet Pluto’s distance is usually quoted on Astronomical Units, I have no idea how far billions of miles is.
Time slows down in a sweaty lift due to the zero point fart
Other than spelling "NOAA" wrong
I even double checked it and still got it wrong! :-D
Did the researchers fly their plane in a curve, you know, in NOOA’s arc?
In our company (well, in our division), we equate a revenue generator's time at $15/minute == $15/minute lost opportunity* at each time solving badly setup AV in meeting rooms. I could predict a direct correlation between 'IT savings' (i.e. reduced overhead) on investment in proper installation and training that then gets passed on to the revenue generating part of the organization as a reduction in margin.
*10 participants waiting 10 minutes to sort out the AV before every meeting can start = $1500 lost opportunity** / compressed project time frame / late delivery / corner cutting to take account of the time / rework because of corner cutting / employee extra work after hours to make up the time / employee burn out ... it can add up**
***8 meetings a month x 12 months = $144,000***
***individual results may vary
I'd like to see some successful use cases, filmed in the actual environment they were used in, instead of compressing an entire product development into a few minutes of dramatic video.
What was presented is far too simplistic and requires significant C-level corporate vision, rather than a few SharePoint site collections splattered around the company network.
The Ecuadorian statement did not specify exactly what it was that Assange said to bring about the measure
Apparently, he called the EU an empty-headed animal-food-trough wiper, would fart in their general direction, that their mother was a hamster, and their father smelt of elderberries.
I was still a child when Skylab was around, but I loved the old Horizon programmes about it, really great stuff! The fact that you could moved around in normal clothes, and they always looked like they were having so much fun*, spinning themselves around (demonstrating the law of conservation of angular momentum), and swallowing floating globules of water. Even as a kid I was sad when Skylab had to end. :'(
But then of course we had space shuttle coming! :-D
