or does that photo look like a father and daughter before prom?
"Uber has, for the second time in a week, hit a bit of a brick wall when it comes to societal expectations of corporate behavior."
Seeing how low those societal expectations seem to be, that is impressive as hell!
The correct unit for force is a Norris. As a rough guess, I would say that he experienced about .0111 of a Norris.
What do we Want?
Evidenced based change!
When do we want it?
After peer review!
We should be safe.
If they would have just made the stuff out of people, like they are supposed to, they wouldn't have this problem.
...but you don't know which until you are stuck in it.
The Republicans always want governing pushed down to the most local level, except when that local level (in this case the municipality) wants to to something they don't like, then they want to push it back up to a level that agrees with them (the states in this case).
So remember boys and girls, if your soul mate wants incriminating pics of you, make sure to get some of them (mutually assured destruction) since it seems that humans are incapable of not being douche bags.
Why did you do that!! After many years and gallons of alcohol I had managed to blot that song from my memory. Now it is back. You are evil!!
Not sure that Wena is a great name. I keep having phrases pop into my mind like:
I love my Wena.
I am always playing with my Wena.
Would you like to touch my Wena?
My dog will not stop licking my Wena!
Oh my God! My Wena has stopped working!
I am so, so, very sorry. Let the down votes commence.
If you think about it, this sort of thing is just perfect for replacing humans at the C level (CEO, CFO, etc) level of corporations, hence its doom.
...welcome our bark covered overlords.
Also, can someone direct me to somewhere that will educate me in how to recognize a Larch?
"Pentecopterus IX: This Time it's Personal!"
The upsides mentioned in this article are the theory, or more accurately the fantasy; the downsides are the reality.
"We're sleepwalking into the demise of national governments as meaningful entities..."

If you can't find a bubble, I guess you just have to create your own.
Can someone please translate Grand Canyons into the more acceptable Bulgarian Funbag unit.
So, they gave him 8 years for stealing stuff and then they want to tack on 4 more for not giving the stuff back. I thought that not giving the stuff back was pretty much the definition of stealing.
I could see it if they gave him 12 years and offered him 4 years off if he made restitution, but, while I in no way condone his actions, this doesn't seem to make since.
Wait, what, seriously?!?!
Why is it that every time I see an article that starts by quoting some part of the Constitution, I reach for the tin foil?
I tried Google maps. My search for "white city of monkey god" got me the Oklahoma State Capitol. I guess that is sort of accurate.
Phase 1: Collect underpants
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Profit
So basically a regulatory agency that actually has the gall to try and regulate should be immediately disbanded.
Also, I am not sure why and FCC ruling would make Congressional action moot. The FCC can make a ruling and Congress is free to act after that. I think that thing here is that if the FCC does make a ruling, then Congress might actually have to come up with a well thought out bill and get it passed </gasp> rather than just let the status quo rule the day, which is probably what most of them want.
The carrot and the onion are sauteed as a modified mirepoix (celery is usually used in the combination). Mirepoixs are commonly used as part of the base of sauces or soups, adds a really good flavor.
I can't really get my head around that, in the future could you please express distances in the more acceptable brontosaurus scale. Much appreciated.
Article doesn't say, but why would I not be surprised to find that the fine is less than the amount of money that they made via this practice.
I would love it if someone found away to apply the RICO act to some of this crap so that they would forfeit all the money they made via this practice on top of any fine, and open the door to treble damages in civil law suits to boot.
As for punishing the share holders, maybe they should start taking a little bit of a closer look at the character of the company they are investing in. I would have as much sympathy for them as I would for an investor in a fund that pays 12% a year no matter how the markets perform, then is surprised that it is a Ponzi scheme.
Yeah, I know, it will never happen, but one can dream.
I hate it when I have moist out gassing!
Yeah, I just love it that they promise all sorts of stuff, but you never hear about any sort of enforcement mechanism if they don't.
Actually, I believe the MoP (minutes of porn) standard was established in 2013 in the comment section of this article. http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/05/23/orangebill/
Tell me about it. I live in San Diego, California and when I read, "In California, where the project was conceived, driving is already semi-automated – you can practically drive with your eyes closed. Everyone (well, almost everyone) obeys the speed limit, and most cars are on cruise control most of the time", my keyboard got a good dose of semi drank tea just before I fell to the floor laughing my ass off.
Thank God, I thought it was just me.
Totally agree they should use Title II immediately and reclassify them.
What bothers me is that if they didn't have the balls to do this yesterday, and don't have the balls to do it to day, why should I believe that they will have the balls to do it tomorrow.
You can freeze bananas for later use in banana bread or smoothies.
I think that is setting the bar a bit high seeing that most people driving cars seem to have a difficult time dealing with barely unusual situations. Give me something that is as competent as half the morons behind the wheel and I'm in.
Google's co-founder, Sergey Brin, seems to have the same idea:
"Too many people are under served by the current transport system. They are blind, or too young to drive, or too old, or intoxicated."
Just adjust your caloric burning accordingly. This will give you a great excuse for doing nothing but sitting around all day while the future misses takes care of everything.
I know it is sort of picky, but I think the choice of the word oligarchy is a bit too general, the US is a plutocracy.
"Paris, well, she probably has a lot of rings too...."
Yeah, but we would have to cut her in half to find out how many.
Little Bobby Tables strikes again!!
I believe in the comment section of a previous article about Mr. Icahn it was agreed that when referring to Mr. Icahn, the term "activist investor" was to be replaced by the word "douche".
"Douche" is not only a more accurate description, but will also save various data storage and bandwidth resources due to its brevity.
It should be interesting to see what happens as more and more jobs that have usually thought to be safe from mechanical automation are lost (this, self driving vehicles, etc). I think sooner or later, there will need to be some serious rethink on the common economic models that are currently worshiped.
I am reminded of the old joke of a car factory manager and union rep walking through the car plant. The factory manager is proudly showing union rep all the robotics being used to build cars and says to him, "I bet you are wondering how you are going to get them to join the union" to which the union rep replies, "actually, I was wondering how you are going to get them to buy cars."
"It's just a bigger version of the chickens KFC use."
KFC uses chicken?
If your security software is chucking out millions of false alerts, it is probably time to ditch it and find one that works. If you just ignore all the alerts, you might as well not have security software at all.
