You can take your title and shove it. Sideways

"I definitely recommend against any beverage container that isn't transparent or whose original contents resembles the new one. DAMHIKT"

That's why Lager is the colour it is. Looks (and tastes) the same before and after.

"Urinating" is an incorrect tag

In these times of enforced commonality with our continental chums, the word you should have used is "Euronating"

German tap-to-pay telco allies don't need no stinkin' banks

Actually; no!

Most of the checkout folk at my local supermarket seem to be a quite personable bunch of (non arts/humanities) students and older womenfolk, most of whom seem capable of smiling and generally being pleasant and they appear to be meaning it.

Now I've said that, I'm sure to have the one checkout staffed by Mrs Rotweiller whose disposition is akin to the Emperor Dalek in a particularly psychotic frame of mind, but without the nice cuddly bits

Yeah right ^2

" "[Q]ueues at the supermarket will soon be a thing of the past," says Deutsche Telekom's ebullient Director of Marketing, espousing the benefits of pay-by-tap."

I'm due to pick up Mrs. Inventor of the Marmite Laser tonight, after her stint trolleybashing.

I sincerely doubt I'll see any change from the norm: People happy to queue for a manned checkout till whilst self-service checkouts stand idle.

Hate bloody self service checkouts: Slow, baulky, irritating and they don't smile.

low-budget amateur programs

Oooo oooo oooo. I feel an Internet solution coming on.

Let's put up a site where you could upload sad/log budget amateur programs for absolutely anyone to ignore at their fullest convenience.

You could call it something like, say, You Tube.

Romanian NASA hacker fights 'inflated' damage assessment

Inventor of the Marmite Laser
Silver badge

It's one thing

For the hacker to claim he's only posted rubbish to drawer attention to lax security but why should anyone take him at his word.

Shirley the cost has to be a complete audit of all systems to make sure he has not done anything for which he's not claiming credit

Same as if you fould a note on your dinig room table from someone who'd got in, saying you'd left the front door open; you'd be round the house checking everything was still where you'd left it.

Half of Virgin Media broadband ads are wrong, says ASA

Inventor of the Marmite Laser

Simple, really

Just make it obligatory for ISPs charges to be on the same "up to" basis.

50% speed = 50% charge.

Failure to respond to complaints/support requests in a timely manner another 50% discount per month outstanding.

Why no "Controlled Explosion"

Not that there's any such thing.

Explosions are NOT controlled.

Ask anyone who has tried to stop one halfway through.
