Two soccerfans ask themselves whether soccer is played in heaven. They make the promise that whoever goes first tries to phone home. One of them dies and his friends phone rings: "I have good news and bad news. Yes they play soccer in heaven. You are in the team playing next Friday".
There is an interesting story about an old US prison where the inmates protested against their appalling conditions by flushing all toilets in the multistory building topdown on cue of the chimes of a local church which they all could hear. The resulting damage to the sewage system forced the authorities to move all prisoners to a better location.
as a sniper or otherwise. But I took the trouble to buy and read Einführung in de Lehre vom Schuss by Dr. Karl Gey and Dr. Horst Teichmann, Leipzig & Berlin, 1941. Printed in Germany.
Other publications from the same publisher Physikalische Denkaufgaben aus der Welt des Soldaten. Any takers?
First send a lot of stale pizza to Mars, then a bunch of German cockroaches. At least they are radiation hardened, less that 1m high and they don't mind if their food is stale.
In the USSR of the Stalinist era the bereaved widow would automatically get a bill for the bullet with which her husband was executed. No advertisement involved.
For centuries the Dutch and German law of inheritance used the rule of Divide or Choose where one party whould divide an estate in "equal" parts and let the other party choose one of the parts. So knowledge of preferences gathered over decennia was essential, rather than negotiations during bargaining.
"The process of regeneration is normally 100 per cent accurate - they never make two-headed worms in the wild,"
What's even more surprising is that even after the ends of the flatworm were chopped off, it always regrew with two heads.
It would be interesting to see what happens if two-headed flatworms are regrown in a centrifuge. Russians grew crystals in microgravitity and in centrifuges with suprising results.
Niccolò Machiavelli said of the secretaries of princes, Il Principe (Florence, 1513), Cap. XXI.
E perché sono di tre generazione cervelli, l'uno intende da sé, l'altro discerne quello che altri intende, el terzo non intende né sé né altri, quel primo è eccellentissimo, el secondo eccellente, el terzo inutile.
There are three different kinds of brains, the one understands things unassisted, the other understands things when shown by others, the third understands neither alone nor with the explanations of others. The first kind is most excellent , the second is also excellent, but the third is useless.
Franklin's quote on Liberty and Safety was taken from a letter he wrote about a tax dispute between the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the family of the Penns, the proprietary family of the Pennsylvania colony who ruled it from afar. And the legislature was trying to tax the Penn family lands to pay for frontier defense during the French and Indian War. And the Penn family kept instructing the governor to veto. Franklin felt that this was a great affront to the ability of the legislature to govern. And so he actually meant purchase a little temporary safety very literally. The Penn family was trying to give a lump sum of money in exchange for the General Assembly's acknowledging that it did not have the authority to tax it. http://www.npr.org/2015/03/02/390245038/ben-franklins-famous-liberty-safety-quote-lost-its-context-in-21st-century
It is now 2017 and I am typing this on an Silicon Graphics keyboard! Well, yes, running Slackware, not Irix.
I have once and only once seen a Silicon Graphics hardware failure. One day I returned to my office after lunch and noticed a strange smell. One of the two board of the IRIS workstation that I used at the time had to be replaced because of an electrical shortcut.
Another incident was when a SGI server that was used for MPEG encoding regularly failed because a RAM-module was ripped out of the machine while it was running, apparently without further damage. We got the cleaners who did this on camera.

Solved that for you.
Does the Electoral Commiss know how much
the Russians Mercer spent on advertising on Facebook?
"It has emerged that Robert Mercer, a hedge-fund billionaire, who helped to finance the Trump campaign and who was revealed this weekend as one of the owners of the rightwing Breitbart News Network, is a long-time friend of Nigel Farage. He directed his data analytics firm to provide expert advice to the Leave campaign on how to target swing voters via Facebook - a donation of services that was not declared to the electoral commission." https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/feb/26/us-billionaire-mercer-helped-back-brexit http://www.france24.com/en/20170228-usa-mysterious-billionaire-robert-mercer-played-crucial-role-trump-brexit-victories

From the Malwarebytes's video is seems that the only places for the criminals to hide are Antarctica and the DPRK.
The virtual Lorenz cipher machine has all screw slots in the northeast-southwest orientation. I am convinced not even the Germans could achieve that.
As late as 1955, when Margaret Burbidge, a superb observer, applied for a position at Mount Wilson , she was told that there were no toilet facilities for women on the mountain. With aplomb, she replied that she would use the bushes. Her husband, a theorist, was hired as a postdoctoral fellow at Caltech, which granted him privileges at Mount Wilson and Palomar. Astronomers looked the other way when she showed up at Mount Wilson to use her husband's allotted time on the one-hundred-inch telescope. He read books in the darkroom while she observed. (R. Florence, The Perfect Machine page 306)

Cassini's cameras, the Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS), provide far more information than consumer-level digital cameras because they're sensitive to all wavelengths of light between the near-ultraviolet and the near-infrared, a range greater than typical visible-light cameras. Each camera has a variety of colour filters mounted on wheels that select the range of wavelengths, or colour, for the camera to record with each image.
So there is no time to make (false) colour photo's Saturn's surface.
Ketlan, I am not going to downvote you as requested, but ask you to read a book like the Linux Bible or UNIX in a Nutshell.
Once saw a garbagebag near my home with a label Intel Inside stcking out. Fetched the desktop, erased the letters of application (after reading) and used the HD ever after.

Why do I hear in all the videos the explosion simultaneous with the blast when the camera is at least several miles away?
BTW The battle of the Somme started at 1 july 1916 with explosions of two mines (11000 and 13500kg) dug under the German lines. They left a crater 98 ft (30 m) deep and 330 ft (100 m) wide.

Statistically people will be driven over twenty times by drunk drivers before they are hit by an unmonitored random nutter driving a car at people.
Long ago as a teen I 'launched' ants in a plastic capsule to see whether they survived the fall back to Earth. They all did. I hated the little critters but did not take the trouble to break their legs.
So far the only fast radio burst of which the source was identified is FRB 121102; a dwarf galaxy at a distance of 43 Mpc to 1.7 Gpc (Nature 5 januari 2017). The flux is 350 µJansky at 1.2 GHz (Brian D. Metzger et al. 2017). Because 1 Jansky is only 10-26 Wm-2Hz-1, this rules FRBs out as powersources for interstellar travel, even if the beam is more intense a couple of lightyears from the source.
If I am well informed, was the list of people to be arrested (prepared in advance for eventualities as in any NATO country) required for the success of the coup d'etat by the Greek military junta in april 1967 printed by a computer operator stimulated by putting a gun to his head.

1 Bq = 1 nucleus decays per second. So ~500kmx500kmx1000mx 5µBq/m³ and the halftime of 8.0197 days gives the leak as 1.73x1015 atoms = 0.377 microgram. The leak was in the order of micrograms.
There's a far simpler method: does your child suddenly own a BMW 4?
For Boris, growing up here, Veles didn't have much to offer. He played soccer but later discovered that he was more proficient at the videogame version of the sport. He joined a Counter-Strike club: nine or 10 teenagers gathered in a room, sitting behind their laptops and shooting each other up. One day a couple of summers ago, Boris was walking to school when he saw a BMW 4 Series parked by the side of the road. "What the fuck?" he thought. "My favorite car is in this town?" He asked around, but no one seemed to know who owned the BMW. Later, in a café, he met a Counter-Strike acquaintance named Aleksandar Velkovski. "Aleksandar, I saw this BMW 4," Boris told him. Velkovski revealed that the car was his. He'd bought it, he said, with the money he made off his website. In Veles, Aleksandar and Borce Velkovski are so renowned for the health food website they started that they're known as the Healthy Brothers. HealthyFoodHouse.com is a jumble of diet and beauty advice, natural remedies, and other nostrums. It gorges on advertising as it counsels readers to put a bar of soap under their bedsheets to relieve nightly leg cramps or to improve their red-blood-cell count with homemade beet syrup. Somehow the website's Facebook page has drawn 2 million followers; more than 10 million unique visitors come to HealthyFoodHouse.com every month.
Ceselkoski turned to coaching in 2011--first with a six-week classroom course in the Macedonian capital of Skopje, where he lives, and now online, in dense three-week modules. For around $425, his students learn how to prepare, populate, and promote their websites. A full third of the syllabus is dedicated to the mastery of Facebook. The Healthy Brothers once took Ceselkoski's course. Ceselkoski was visiting Las Vegas around the time of the election, and Trump's victory stunned him. He thought about the website operators in Veles. "It's possible, maybe, they changed a few percentages."
