What does Elon Musk really need? A personal theme tune, of course!

He thinks the world exists for his personal amusement.

BBC Telly Tax petition given new Parliament debate date

unwarranted triumphalism

Why should I pay the telly tax if I don't even have a telly? You lot probably want nonsmokers to pay tobacco duty as well don't you?

How awful

Whatever will the saddo gambling addicts do to get their fix? Never mind, I'm sure that a fine upstanding comany such as Ladbrokes can help them piss away their families' rent/mortgage/groceries money.

Don't forget folks, it's not your fault for pissing away all your money on this bullshit, it's everyone else's fault for not stopping you!

Tarmac for America's self-driving car future is being laid right now

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: Get rid of the real cause of traffic congestion

If you think it is acceptable to endanger childrens' lives by careening around one one of those idiotic contraptions instead of driving a car like an adult then we have nothing more to discuss.

Goodbye.

Get rid of the real cause of traffic congestion

by banning bikes. Far too many of them on the road. Why should I be delayed for what is after all a minority hobby?

Re: Just being realistic

So you're one of those people who waste time and money on the impossible? Pretty shit way to make a living but each to their own.

Why not keep your trap shut while other people are making a living being normal instead of nerdy losers? Too bad you won't be invited to share any of the wealth.

And yeah, I'll enjoy laughing while you and your fellow dweebs keep screwing up and you still have no idea why the laws of physics won't do what *you* want and no one will listen to your crazy ideas.

Poor attempt at a joke, just like the man himself. Stick to the overpriced golf buggies, I'll enjoy seeing him fail.

I'm glad to see they haven't been wasting taxpayers' money on anything so mundane as curing diseases. That would never do.

EasyJet: We'll have electric airliners within the next decade

unwarranted triumphalism

Glad to see everyone else is already making the same lame 'joke'...

Because fossil-fuel-powered aircraft never run out of fuel, ever. It's such an impossible event that no procedures are in place to account for this, like minimum fuel levels to account for delays and poor weather at the destination airport.

So they've broken everything. But they've made it slightly shinier, that's nice.

Why not try using a computer designed for grown-ups instead?

So my taxes don't pay for the roads, is that wnat you're saying? What does, then? Magic?

Maybe that's what the criminal thug cyclist brigade might think but that's not how things work in reality.

Re: You're still an idiot

I see you still enjoy being wrong - about everything. Perhaps if you looked where you were going insted of running over pedestrians you would have a case.

Or perhaps if you drove a car like an adult instead of using that ridicuolous child's toy on the roads - which MY taxes pay for by the way - then maybe you would be able to understand 'simple arguments.

You're still a failure.

Re: Whats this GUI thingy?

You've just proved my point with that foul-mouthed tantrum. If you can't behave in a civilised manner then perhaps you should not be on the road at all.

Driverless cars will make more traffic, say transport boffins

unwarranted triumphalism

Got rid of mine...

Bike for short journeys, train for longer ones. I've saved money and lost weight.

Win-win in my book.

Cops' use of biometric images 'gone far beyond custody purposes'

unwarranted triumphalism

Lol

at the hysteria around this. The police should be given any and all tools they need to fight crime. Suppose you lot would rather see criminals running around free to cause mayhem.

I enjoyed reading Proxima by Stephen Baxter and found it fairly plausible.

Kid found a way to travel for free in Budapest. He filed a bug report. And was promptly arrested

Re: Did not disclose the bug publically.

It doesn't matter whether or not he did, the commentators have to vent their outrage at a young person.

Jodie Who-ttaker? The Doctor is in

unwarranted triumphalism

Hardly shocking

Given that the intellectual horizons of science fiction fans generally extend no further than Gor and Star Trek, I'm not surprised at the hateful and bigoted reactions to Jodie's appointment as the new Doctor.

In the meantime, I shall continue to enjoy more worthwhile pursuits, such as working for a living and going outside.

President Donald Trump taken on by unlikely foe: Badass park rangers

unwarranted triumphalism

It's an amazing coincidence that the 'absence' of climate change trumpeted by the deniers is *exactly* the justification they need to continue the lifestyle choices they find most convenient.

Because you'll be damned if anyone tries to tell you to stop rolling coal any more, won't you?

Trump lieutenants 'use private email' for govt work... but who'd make a big deal out of that?

Nothing to do with me. I never made any comments about his unfitness for office, or his incompetence.
