No, but getting them to out of the way places without invoking suspicion isn't quite so easy. I'm not saying the story is necessarily true, but it's not unbelievable.
Of course, it can also go the other way. According to the BBC the cop shop in Darwin, Australia has been designated a Pokestop and they've had to put up a sign telling players not to come inside. Good luck muggers trying it on there.
I can't watch that at work, but I'm guessing it's Constable Savage?
It's shocking how relevant a topical news comedy show remains 35 to 40 years later, especially with respect to race issues. The "Race and Responsibility" sketch could be any Tory in 2015, the budget cutting taxes on the rich while putting huge duties on wheelchairs, white sticks and diarrhoea medicine could have come straight from the lips of George Osborne. Our government has become indistinguishable from parody, except parody might be more believable.
Since we're talking reversals of the situation: Nigel Farage himself said that 52% Remain would not in his eyes constitute a settlement of the matter, so you should have no problem with Remain voters thinking 51.9% Leave should not settle it.
Funny how a majority vote is only relevant when the vote goes in your favour, etc etc.
Don't be too quick to assume that London will remain popular after an EU exit. A lot of the banks are declaring plans to relocate, and France is pushing slyly to poach much of the rest.
The Hearthstone streamer Shadybunny gets a regular 500-600 viewers, and he recently hit 250 subs - I know this because that's a threshold for gaining a personal emote. pewgeminilive, another streamer I know who was partnered before the requirements were increased, actually has more subs than he does regular viewers.
The reason your assumption is mistaken is because it doesn't account for the depersonalisation of large groups. Smaller streamers are able to interact with the chat on a personal basis. This makes viewers feel connected to the stream and more likely to want to contribute something back. Larger streamers still get more subs through sheer volume of traffic, but the overall proportion of viewers who sub is lower.
Are you suggesting that Windows 10 is vaperware?
Hopefully Lester is not now a Bastard Operator In Hell. I'm told that down there they put tomato sauce on the bacon sandwiches instead of brown. Or as others would have it, both brown sauce and tomato sauce are available, but whichever you want the other one comes out of the squeezy bottle.
(If you like both, you get mayonnaise.)
As anyone who's ever trodden on a brick in their bare feet knows, LEGO is both feared and loved.
Clearly a fake article. I've never even met the woman.
Monkeys are perfectly capable of swinging from trees without your help.
I think it would be more appropriate to say that like Mr Rose, the Register were having their cake and eating several other people's cakes.
Submit your correction to Stephen Pile for the next edition of The Book of Heroic Failures. Don't worry about causing offence - he'll take it as a compliment.
If you're referring to historical events: the state legislature of Indiana once ruled that pi was 4.
Call yourself an IT support expert? Everyone knows gaffa tape isn't a hardware solution. Used properly, it's part of the user interface.
On average each claimant is claiming to have owned more than a third of the missing BitCoins. Says everything about the kind of person who would use them, really.
Actually using two condoms is less safe than using one, as the friction between the two makes them more likely to break. [*]
Properly advised and protected, you may now change this post to a GO icon.
[*] Which is a shame. I always liked the old joke: why did the Irishman wear two condoms? To be sure, to be sure.
I don't know if you know, but there actually is a Lady Deadpool. She's part of the Deadpool Corps, a collection of Deadpools from a variety of parallel dimensions that also includes Pirate Deadpool, Deadpool the Kid and Headpool, the severed zombified head of the Marvel Zombies Deadpool who flies around using a helicopter beanie. Unfortunately Deadpool 2 is likely to be Deadpool and Cable, but who knows - maybe in the third?
I can go with this. Particularly if they cast Gillian Anderson as James Bond without changing the name of the character.
The main issue with casting Anderson is she's 48 this year. This has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything to do with the role. Roger Moore's later movies were made when he was in his 50s, and he was something of an embarrassment in them. I wouldn't want Anderson to suffer the same fate.
OTOH, if they want to make an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis's excellent period spy comic Velvet, I think Anderson would make a very good Velvet Templeton. For those unfamiliar, the central premise of the book is "What if Miss Moneypenny was a retired 00 agent?"
It's not a van Gogh, you know. (Although the buyer will probably be an American businessman.)
Came home to something similar yesterday, except that one was "Install now" or "Install tonight". Nowhere was an option given to not install, although closing the window without clicking either button will do it. This crap is unforgivable.
As mentioned in posts ad nauseam: it is an infection.
Got a pop-up yesterday telling me when my Windows 10 upgrade was scheduled. Microsoft need to be hit with the world's biggest anti-trust suit.
Anyone suggesting Planet McPlanetface will be shot.
Unfortunately Hades has already gone - they gave it to Tau Ceti 3.
How many of the 300 million Windows 10 users knew they were using Windows 10?
It seems we've also found evidence of the earliest known short term contractor.
I'm in Aberdeen too, and I get sustained speeds of 70+ mbps on BT Infinity 2.
(Paris, because when it comes to making a fast connection she has no equal.)
And in the short story "Pimpf" Bob acquires an assistant whose initials are PFY, and handles a situation in which a user inadvertently does something horrible involving a computer due to lack of Clue. It's basically a BOFH story set in the Laundry. Which is one or indeed several of the reasons why for years I've been of the belief that Simon Travaglia - which translates as "He has heard torment", BTW - is a pen name of Stross.
No word as yet on smartphones, but he's definitely in favour of the taglia telly.
Honestly, it only sounds reasonable under the circumstances. If Cavanaugh had access to sufficient quantities of pasta he might make a noose from the noodles and hang himself.
I wasn't aware that Three were government owned.
Exactly. The author just held t'Shift key down too early, it's meant to be t'NMOC.
Deciding whether or not he will run?
What's that? A series of lubes, you say?
Ten years? Damn, those spammers were riding the crest of the targeted advertising wave, weren't they?
So that's what the MK in MK-ULTRA stands for - "Mass Killing". The project is a system to track all the lunatic paranoid conspiracy theorists who are apt to go off the rails and shoot a bunch of folks. That certainly makes more sense than the American government being unable to spell "mind control" properly. Thanks!
(Paris, because people are always watching her through night vision goggles.)
No. I'd have less confidence in someone who thinks their app can't fail.
If Cthulhu shares his creator's views on black people, depression won't be the reason he doesn't live in Detroit. That is not dead which can eternal lie, but thankfully that doesn't apply to death of the author.
Because there are more people than prisoners in prisons. They'd also jam the signal for visitors, including lawyers, and more importantly they'd jam it for the guards.
Doubly so while wiping his bottom, lest he swipe to unlock.
And here I was, thinking only the Duracell bunny had a high-capacity battery stuck up its bum.
That's not true, there are always the gaffes to look forward to. The year when Slovenia's hosts excitedly awarded their own country 12 points despite not qualifying for the finals was a highlight.
It was Maria Whittaker on the Barbarian poster. And the barbarian himself was Wolf from Gladiators.
I've often wondered why people who use "gay" to mean "bad" never logically extend it and use "straight" to mean "good". And do they think bisexuality is mediocre?
To be honest, I first read the headline as "homophobic encryption speed barrier".
I think the downvotes have come because ISIS have not broken the homophobic encryption speed barrier. In fact, their homophobia is not encrypted at all. They're getting plenty of practice taking it to terminal velocity, though.
(Bomb, because we're dropping a lot of them on the gay-bashers of the Caliphate.)
They should try being on Universal Credit. The IFS just announced that it will make people poorer than they are under the existing system.
(Before anyone goes off on one about encouraging people to find work: many people who will be on UC are already working.)
Indeed, thank you Solmyr. This one was a simple slide switch that looked rather like this:
I'm not going to pass comment on how they found it before finding the big rocker switch they should have been using, but it was even worse than just needing a fingernail.
Too late. I've been there when someone was instructed to use the power switch on the back of the PC to turn it off and hit the voltage switcher instead. I believe that sound is sometimes referred to as "the Crack of Doom".
So he's right, NASA haven't changed a bit. They weren't putting people into orbit thirty years ago, either.
Beer: to the crew of the Challenger and especially to Christa McAuliffe, the woman who wanted to teach history and instead became it.
This being Hollywood, they'll just split it into two parts to double the box office.
I'll get my second coat, shall I?
Muscle relaxant so she could get the bag up, then a painkiller so she wouldn't notice they were there. It's a sound theory that fits the evidence.
(Beer, even though despite being a muscle relaxant and relieving the pain you really will notice if it's inserted into a bodily orifice.)
Listen, bud - he's got MYSTICAL radioactive blood.
