OK, your boss allegedly called you a lazy n*****, promoted the person you trained ahead of you and paid you less, but you can't PROVE it's racism, Facebook says

It's over 9,000! Boffin-baffling microquasar has power that makes the LHC look like a kid's toy

Louis Schreurs BEng


I can be wrong, it's a morning after an evening of satisfying potsmoking, but the thing has roughly 2 times the power of the LHC. At first I thought it was an American reporter bashing on a contraception located in Europe. But no.

A kid's toy has the power of a grown-up's toy orders of magnitude smaller. Not half the power.

What a kid's idea of a title for this in essence rather interesting article. Also the usual sarcastic title-appropriation on The Reg isn't applicable to me. What a bummer.

Trump shouldn't criticise the news media, says Amazon's Jeff Bezos

Louis Schreurs BEng

Re: Media? Does he mean news reporting, cause it's not the same.

- Reagan introduced legislation that allowed for biased news reporting, before that it was legally required to report both sides to a story

- Assessed from a distance, your USA politics 'left' is just right in the middle, USA's citizens are so self-obsessed and self-absorbed that they can't see beyond their closely guarded (national-, moral-) borders. You don't have a 'left'wing party, only a centrist political party and a right wing political party.
