>but you really wouldn't find it funny if you needed the emergency services.
The proper system is that the federal govt guarantees that your 911 call goes through and an ambulance turns up - and leaves because you don't have insurance ?
Surely this is a free market differentiation, if you aren't happy with your 911 service you can simply switch suppliers to one that offers a better service.
Since it may be inconvenient to do this whilst having a heart attack you should probably install some sort of app in advance to enable a quick-switch

Alternatively it could be hurridly repainted, the onyx bath taps installed and the gun removed (or not - depending on the oligarch) and sold if the next budget looks tight
>Bannon is using Trump, and Bannon has the more dangerous, off-the-rails political ideas
I see your Bannon and raise you a Peter Thiel
To misquote the classics: You're not billionaire, you're little people!
You are assuming that somebody was in charge of Tandy, and they had a business plan - I think the evidence against that is pretty comprehensive
The canadian part, thesource.ca, seems to live on despite selling nothing but useless in-flight magazine type electric gadgets and overpriced watch batteries
I think they must be a front for something - probably N Korea judging from the level of technology
>Used to work for Tandy in the 80s
Can I just get your name and address
Simple - Lose money on every customer but make up for it in volume
Depending on how badly the test is designed/requriement is worded.
Spikes means the pedestrian would accelerate to the vehicle speed and stay there - rather than be accelerated and then bounced off so feeling double the overall force.
If you ignored the whole pierced by a spike bit - you could reduce the amount of impact felt by a pedestrian by fitting spikes
>the armed forces should be buying British
Or they could invade somewhere and steal theirs - they are the ARMED forces after all
> Probably the same in Oz, they would buy them if they could get them
I think in the case of Oz, as soon as they weren't forced to buy commonwealth they were very happy to buy something cheaper and more reliable.
As the saying goes if you want to get into the outback take a Landrover - if you want to come back out again take a Landcruiser
Wasn't there a recent event of some relevance to this?
I welcome our new coal powered British Land Rovers
Well they do hang around with sailors rather a lot
In fact if you had an all volunteer army and discovered that they were all ready and happy to stick bayonets into people when told to do so - you might have more grounds for concern
Would never happen in the Royal Marines (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4475034.stm)
>For instance, it's the only place I've been where shouting was considered polite behavior.
To be fair it's also one of the few places where you get promoted for killing people (unlike medical school or air-traffic control)
>based on such traits as how one says the letter "H".
I think the Israelites can claim prior art on that one by about 30 centuries
Those just offered incremental improvements over the technology in a regular desktop of the time.
If (and it's a big IF) these work then even the toy scale ones described here wipe the floor with supercomputers (for a certain class of problems) so then a supercomputer scale quantum one will be "interesting"
At the moment they are like the first lab prototype hand made transistors compared to established tube/valve technology, but look where transistors went.
Alternately toss a coin and you have a 50% chance of being in the universe where you already read the book vs being the one who didn't
If your wife or daughter was raped by an iPhone owner you would want the police to have their location - so it's vital for all phones to be tracked 24x7 by the police.
Your home view screen should probably record you as well - in case you are doing homecrime
Especially if you are a hedge funded that is shorting them (or their investors) and is leaking these stories to the press
And they spent 500% as much grounding undamaged planes - presumably while checking for DSLRs jammed in the controls?
13 days =
1 day for somebody to write a Corrective And Preventive Action plan for dealing with jamming DSLRs behind the control stick (ie don't)
11 days for it to be reviewed, filed, lost queried, subject to public inquiry, lost again, recycled as firelighters .....
1 day for checking if any of the other aircraft had DSLRs jammed behind the control stick
Did any of his republican friends offer to send any money when "he" emailed to say he had been mugged?
The last lot refused a visa for Adi Shamir - because returning to the middle east after living in america is a sign of radicalisation.
He is the "s" in RSA. He was to be speaking at an NSA conference. He is Israeli
"2. "Write what the sign on the Statue of Liberty says""

What is your name?

What is the airspeed velocity of a fully laden swallow?
>They killed the Newton, and I never forgave them.
Americans like the poetic ambiguity of pound (mass) and pound (force)
- I'm not sure if it is entirely Apple's fault
Says professional devotee of sky beard ...
It also depends on the conductivity of the mesh, especially the connections between the bits of wire. Chicken wire manufacture is not optomised for high frequency AC conductivity.
Mobile phones are also really-really good at working with a very weak signal
And the extension of slavery to anyone who doesn't have a knighthood
If you need one of them - not being able to order even 10off of most of them is a bit limiting for planning even small projectd
It says "arms" not guns, and nothing about conventional weapons.
You can prize my H-bomb from my glowing dead fingers
But look on the bright side - the last time the Hun tried to do mandatory encryption we got computers as a spin-off
German government really doesn't have much luck when it comes to encryption does it ?
Presumably you would just charge the BBC a license fee for doing so ?
Sponsorship opportunities - eventually people are going to walk around looking like F1 drivers
Where you genuinely don't know who to feel more sorry for
Yes - That's why all new passenger aircraft are flown under remote control around the world before you risk putting people on them.
I crew member to recognise the moon and the other to press the "keep orbital mechanics working as we continue in the same orbit" button ?
Could be a good kickstarter opportunity
Presumably the hard working educated and precise UK engineers have moved on to more lucrative employment - lets hope the City isn't allowed to hire all these foreigners aswell
That's the advantage of digital - it can mean anything you want.
It might be embarrassing to be a politician opening a new AI research lab, next door to the empty nano-material research lab, next door to the crumbing high-temperature superconducitivy research lab, next door to the boarded up 5th generation software lab
But with digital innovation thought leader research research you never have to worry about them failing to deliver
The smart ones will be working for their Guernsey based management company and will only be in the UK for 5 ears for meetings and integration - no tax and no NI
You mean there might now be smuggling across the Irish border - surely not ?
Anyone else remember the cow barns built across the border with queues of petrol tankers innocently going in and out of each end
