#spon

Am I alone in always reading #spon as short for spondulix, rather than sponsored? Come on "celebs" be honest, #whoringmyselfoutforcash would be more appropriate, the drawback being it means less characters to shill your goods with - although I would be surprised if Jordan and Rio could manage 140 characters between them.

Goddamnit...

...I had my eye on a S2 when upgrade season rolls around, it's not quite yet, so hopefully this will be sorted quick sharp by a common sense judge (oxymoron I know). If not, then I know for certain that I won't be getting an iPhone, I can't abide the way that Apple conduct business, they never actually innovate any more, just stifle the innovators until they have caught up.

Happy with the selection

I can't think of anything off the top of my head. But I would like to say nice one to the dad who was arriving at Strikerz at Turton School tonight wearing the 'Badgers' T-shirt. Good work and carry on.

Hey AC, I think you dropped this >>>> 's'

To do it once is forgiveable, but to repeat the mistake requires intervention.

The word you are looking for is 'descent'. You have marred a phrase that could possibly have gone on to live in internet folklore, and possibly spawned a whole dynasty of 'planet Fail' spin-offs (escape from; ascent from; born on) Maybe even a movie tie-in - "It came from planet Fail"? But now it will probably end its days on a grammar pedant website being repeatedly dragged out to amuse the public as a curiosity in a grammatical freak show.

Sorry for the overreaction to a harmless dropped 's' but I need sleep and can no longer tell where the internet finishes and the voices in my head begin.

Apple sues Amazon over 'App Store' name

Go

Try approaching from the other way...

Everyone is abbreviating/truncating from the start. I hereby lay claim to Cation Station and all future use.

Or maybe they could move onto a statement of intent as the name, so instead of Hack The World - App the World, but the "the" in there is a bit clunky, maybe go with the French to sound a bit more cosmopolitan - so there you go Amazon, you can call it App le World.

Speed reduction plan

They can just try the method of speed reduction that Bolton Council seem to be trialling. The plan is to let every road be a patchwork of potholes and raised ironworks that mean if you attempt any reasonable sort of speed then your car is rendered inoperable within a few hundred yards. It's a very cost effective and possibly green solution as the old cars will get replaced by newer and by design more efficient ones - they may even get a grant from the EU to do feck all to the roads.
