Bonkers call to boycott Raspberry Pi Foundation over 'gay agenda'

Re: And ther rest...

"I used to work with a bloke with a big shaggy beard who wore womens earings every day that I saw him. Earrings definitely aren't a good indicator to rely on."

I bet if you asked him how long he'd been wearing them, he'd have said "Ever since my Missus found them on the back seat of our car"

Moon samples

I remember a few years ago a TV progrm about one of the Moon landing astronauts that mixed moondust he'd gathered from the creases and crevasses of his moonsuit (not from the official samples/specimens) mixed them with paint, and painted pictures containing real moondust. No doubt he is now doing Life + 99 years.

Rogue One: This is the Star Wars back story you've been looking for

KBeee

I saw the original Star Wars back in the 70's in a cinema in Shaftsbury Avenue. Went with a friend called Phil. When we came out he was enthusing about "Best Film I've Ever Seen!"

I thought it was puerile crap - still do. But I was youmg and forgiving in those days...

Someone once pointed out to me that a 16 year old couple can get married, go on their honeymoon and have a Nice Lusty Night, and that's perfectly legal. But if they take a selfie of their Nice Lusty Night they are suddenly criminals.

Gillian Anderson: The next James Jane Bond?

Re: On a Serious Note

David Tennant doesn't have that "physicality" needed by Bond.

I always thought before Pierce Brosnan got the job, that "Chancer" Clive Owen would make a terrific Bond. Still think he'd have been the better choice, and was (then) young enough to stay Bond for a long time.

OK - this is AFTER PUB stuff , you don't need "24 hour Marinade" (while squiffy), or 93 ingredients..

Put slice of bread into toaster - Fill 1/3 mug of water - break egg in - 1 minute in microwave - leave for 20 seconds - 10 more seconds in microwave - put perfect poached egg onto toast. Dribble down chin.

America was founded on a dislike of taxes, so how did it get the IRS?

KBeee

No Taxation Without Representation!

Except "Representation" was turned down by the Colonists (twice).

A good read about the War of Independence, though fictional, but probably closer to the truth than most history books would be "Scoundrel" by Keith Thompson. It does a "Flashman" to those troubled times, but using a real protaganist instead of a fictional one.

UK smart meters arrive in 2020. Hackers have ALREADY found a flaw

KBeee

The thing I find most strange is that when the UK had the CEGB, National Grid, and distribution "Electricity Boards", there was LESS Gubmint interference than these "Free Market" companies get.

UK Gov throws up it's hands in HORROR that "We've GOT to rip you off cos the European Bureaurocrats are DEMANDING that we force Smart Meters on you so we can pay rich people to put Bling (solar panels) on their roofs and wind turbines in their Ancestial Grounds!"

While trying to repeal Human Rights laws..

Police stats inflate the number of guns actually stolen in Blighty

KBeee
Meh

Nothing much changes

It was only a few years ago that certain types of air pistols were banned because

"half of all firearms recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds".

Sounds like a LOT of guns...

After they had been banned it turned out that the correct statement should have been

"half of all firearms, adapted from other things, recovered by the Metropolitan Police last year were these air pistols adapted to fire live rounds"

The actual number was 5.

Little error?

"... the threat of terrorism was called a "cover for action," something to trigger an emotional response that can be used to get powers that would otherwise be available."

..and due to the mainstream press coverage, people will think that 20,000 people died in Japan because of "The 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster", forgetting that it was actually the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.
