That's not going to happen. It would take the entire length of the movie.

I've been to Essen a number of times for the International Spieltage trade fair (AKA Spiel). I like it; it's in the middle of a nest of small towns that puts me in mind of what London would be like if it wasn't an evil vampire monster pretending to be one place. It's a bit lacking in things to do, but it's only 30 minutes train from Dusseldorf.

Only temporarily. (See post icon for details.)
Of course it would. But the whole point of the Trolley Problem is that it involves a scenario where stopping is not possible. If the trolley could stop, it wouldn't be a problem.
The problem with that choice is that different priorities exist. If you are a typical city centre car driver, you hit the cyclist because that stupid bastard shouldn't have been there in the first place. If you are a pragmatist, then you hit the old lady because she has had a long and good life and the cyclist deserves the same chance. If you are a moral absolutist then you hit whichever of the two was in the dumbest position and hence most deserved to be hit, and so on.
The government don't want to regulate on this because to serve their own purposes would say too much about them. But they'd probably rule that cars had to hit the cyclist, because the cyclist is more likely to be poor and the old lady is more likely to vote Tory.
That's the one we always used to use, as it was easier to slip into the reports unnoticed. "Resolving this ticket was a picnic", and similar.
If you undo your belt your trousers will fall down. Is that what you mean by a business critical back up?
The OP is talking about hellbanning Trump. If you're hellbanned, the only person who can see what you post is you. You think you're talking to the world, but you're just screaming into the void. So nobody would be retweeting or publishing, because they'd never see it.
He's an idiot who half-arsed his way through a rushed meeting, burbling buzzwords and platitudes rather than anything of substance. Take a look at the negotations with the EU and tell me Shapps wouldn't fit right in.
Or as the Tories would put it, sneering "experts". Of whom we are, of course, tired of hearing their opinions on their specialist subjects. They truly are an idiocracy, valuing ignorance over knowledge because knowledge exposes the emptiness of their ideology. Auberon Waugh was ashamed of the Conservatives in 1983; God knows what he'd think of them now.
Because it's the boss now. And that's what you do.
More like Threepiohhhh.
"Sir, I am fluent in over six million forms of masturbation."
"Do you speak dirty?"
If you think I'm queuing overnight without a jacket, you can think again.
Same as it always has been: idiots currently have too much money.
To be fair, no government department can provide information it doesn't have. If there's one thing Leavers and Remainers should be able to agree on it's that the management of Brexit has thus far been utterly shambolic. In the three months following the triggering of Article 50 most of the requests received by DExEU would be along the lines of "What are your plans?" and "When are you going to start negotiating?" - two questions to which sending no answer would be answering in full.
You can at least rely on Wi-Fi to provide data, especially when abroad. The number of times I've stayed in a hotel that was a data blackspot outweigh the times when I haven't.
This trend to connect everything to the internet is disturbing, though. I think the lowlight was the internet-connected refrigerator that would log its contents and power consumption using an app and send handy notes to your phone that you hadn't bought milk since Tuesday or that you'd spent £6.75 operating it this month. "Well, we programmed the smart lighting system and the smart TV to turn on and off on a variable timer to simulate us being home. Unfortunately someone hacked the smart fridge and the log told them that nobody had opened the door in five days."
Don't Ubermenschen: The War
Yeah, yeah, I know...
I didn't realise the megaphone was a unit of measurement. No wonder they're so noisy on the bus.
(Mine's the one with a Note 4 in the pocket...)
I was torn between upvoting this for the pun and downvoting because I'd wanted to post it myself.
Personally, I think both parties are Batty.
I think you'll find there were more significant factors involved, such as the gentleman in question not being white. Although that's more of an excuse than the actual law , to be fair.
 For now. Expect the tangerine twat's executive order prohibiting black people from owning Dodge Chargers at any moment.
Speak for yourself. I'd rather be a slave to love.
He certainly did.
(The IT angle: can you guess what IT is?)
They'd probably have to be made to measure, so quite well.
Of course, getting the measurements may prove tricky. "Do you dress to the left or to the right, sir?" "Yes."
So long as they are responsibly sourced dried frog pills, I don't mind. And by "responsibly sourced" I mean "made out of Pepe".
BTW, I think my post icon has been hacked.
I'm down. Samsung designs have been on fire lately.
Indeed. Or possibly to raspberries.
"Fully funded into the fourth quarter" doesn't automatically mean "fully funded through the fourth quarter", though. They could have enough cash to keep the lights on until October 1st and no more, and still make their claim.
That said, it's still more than fifty days until the end of Q3 2017.
If we're going to play Smash The Monopoly, I want to be the boot.
And no arguments about how in your family it's the top hat, please.
Stuff asking "why aren't there more women in tech", the real question we should be asking is why there are so many male engineers when they all seem to think
is eight inches.
I would upvote this OP, but it's at +69 right now and I won't be the one to spoil it.
Perhaps not supreme delicacy. That was presumably required shortly after, as the writer implies that enquiries were also made into the nature of the lady's underwear.
"If you desire a LINUX USER for a neighbour, vote Labour.
If you are already burdened with one, vote Conservative."
Hopefully some German-speaking Reg reader will correct me if I'm wrong, but I was given to understand that "detlef" was the German equivalent word to "faggot". Not very PC, that.
It is dank. You may get memed by a grue.
I think you have the wrong war. Unless you're north of 50 it's more likely that your grandfather fought in World War II, not World War I.

500 MILLION FRIENDS
A FEW BOTNETS
That's not what they meant by "give him a blow job"!
You misspelled "America" there, but I'll forgive you as the two words have little connection these days.
Totally unrelated to Higgins or Dredd, but Summer Magic just got a full reprint this week. John Ridgway's art in top form (and Ridgway illustrated The Dead Man - ha, there's your Dredd connection).
This forum needs a Dredd icon.
Sorry to be a pedant on what is otherwise a good post, but Meltdown Man was illustrated by Massimo Belardinelli. Sadly taken from us too young, like Joe Colquhoun and now Steve Dillon.
She has lost her battle against the Buydildo Empire.
If your coffee drinking is NSFW, you're using the wrong orifice.
He was probably the only one who was shocked. Whenever a "lifestyle accessory" project like this hits a crowdfunding platform, nine times out of ten it's cheap tat that was already on sale on Alibaba being resold at a 300% markup.
Speak for yourself, you God-benighted sinner.
Nobody's ever beaten the original newspaper headline recorded after Inverness Caledonian Thistle (AKA Caley Thistle) beat Celtic: "Super Caley go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious".
Also this one doesn't match the song; it needs to drop a syllable in the second half. "Uber drivers stocious" works, as does "Uber hacks are stocious".
Now if you'll excuse me, the wind just changed and I need to go back to work.
OK, we know how the inmates got the parts. We know how they got them into the ceiling. We even know how they got the PCs rigged up to a display. But nobody - NOBODY - has asked the most important question of all:
Can it run Crysis?
I suspect most of us believe there are only two archetypes, total: "complete and utter twunts", and "me".
Everybody holds this opinion simultaneously, and everybody is right.
And just as the Note 7 was recalled, the North Korean nuclear programme took a lurch forward. I wonder what happened to all those defective batteries.
Reading brain functions doesn't bother me, but writing? Not to go all tinfoil hat here, but there's not an open system that can't be broken into with sufficient time, effort and incentive. And when you apply that to the human brain, you literally get mind control. That's a pretty big incentive.
(Paris, because at least she'd be safe.)
I read that as "a layer of QuickTime", a fate I wouldn't wish on anyone.
No. Only Trump voters voted in Donald Trump, but everyone is paying the price.
