Look, either you're committed to "boldly going* where no man has gone before", or not.

Like the Reg
ever needed an excuse to report on boffing-stick boffinry. But the delay is indeed worrying. This should be "hold the front page stuff".

I don't think those German speciality videos were approved for medical training purposes.
I was going to suggest lasers - we just need to work out how to genetically engineer tiny sharks.

Didn't you read the article? It clearly states she will be "flicking the switch" which rules out approximately 50% of the population.

Yes, I have no idea where they learned the stiff upper lip thing but since it's also known as sang froid I suppose it was from the French.

Struth mate, everyone knows the second person plural is "youse".

Are you sure that it not in fact a ridiculous term for an even more ridiculous sex act? Because I'm not.

Yeah, now Major T's safely on terra firma I'm flogging the Space Oddity jokes for all their worth.
Re: I would like to know
Electric powered azimuth thrusters are common enough and manage to spend their entire working lives underwater without problems. The seals on the the Tesla's motors might are probably not that good but good enough to protect against constant road water should be good enough for a few seconds immersion.
It was worth £80M
just so someone could say "ground control to Major Tim". (Someone did say that didn't they?)
Seriously, I'm not British so I don't have a stake in this but doesn't it come down to whether you want to play with the big boys or sulk in the corner? Because, for the big boys 80 million is small change. Go ask Elon.

Re: That linked article is nonsense
"For what its worth, they aren't really a problem anyway."
You might have a different view if you lived in Syria.
That linked article is nonsense
No one made any effort to point out that Dylann Roof didn't represent Christians or white people because no one was saying it in the first place. "Lone wolf" or "deranged" is the default interpretation when a white person engages in act act of mass violence even where their ideological motivations are quite explicit.
For what it's worth I agree that Islamacists would be much less of a problem without the illegal meddling of powerful states (including the Saudis) in the affairs of third world countries.
"As to whether mountain bikers are terrorists?"
I've seen some of their videos. Bloody terrifying (or anyone afraid of heights at least).
Re: Some points to consider.
"They remove some of this propaganda material from the terrorist, but not everything, calming that some of it doesn't break their rules."
This just as it should be. If you want to say that ISIS represents the "pinnacle of human efforts to live as Allah demands we should" you're exercising freedom of speech. If you say "come join ISIS and help us kill infidels" you're recruiting for a terrorist organisation. Sure, sometimes it's a fine line and people will often get it wrong but making the effort is what democracies do and dictatorships have no interest in doing.

Look, I'm not anti-Google. I accept that it does in fact "quickly remove videos violating these policies when flagged by our users". But not wanting to look evil is fairly week motivation. The threat of lawsuits is a better one (even when they fail as I suspect this one will). And why is a company with the most powerful content detection algorithms in the world relying on users to flag objectionable videos. I suspect some extra motivation is in fact required.

Re: $763 worth of gear
Of course, here's quite likely to be repaired phones in a repair room along (probably considerably more) unrepaired ones. If the thief managed to grab just the good ones it suggest some degree of inside knowledge.

Re: Those pesky users, doing what *they* want to do
Reminds me of the time Microsoft thought it would be a good idea to create "all sorts of possible ways" to allow (obliviously responsible and well-intentioned) companies to control remotely control people's computers via the browser.
Re: On a related matter
"Value is what the market is prepared to pay".
Ordinarily, yes, but it's not, as is commonly insinuated, definitional. Sure investors and their advisors might not do better than chance but find one who'll admit that their decision aren't based on an understanding of market value. It's just that usually, their judgments are the only ones that happen to matter. In this case though, the court gets to decide. And whatever you might think of lawyers, in this case I'll side with them.

Re: Am I the onky peson who...
Historically in the UK, truth was a defence, but since the burden of proof was with the defendent it's a big strong to call it an absolute defence. I believe things have changed with the recent reform, though.

Re: Anyone seen specs or estimated prices?
In most locations video makes no sense as you're targeting people on the move and in fact it may be dangerously distracting. Anything that makes video signage relatively less attractive is a good thing in my book.

Re: A minor matter of zoology
The DH88 Comet racer was also a pretty good-looking aircraft. In fact pretty much all the de Havilland's of the inter-war years had a definite elegance about them. I'd nominate the DH88 Drafon Rapide as the best looking airliner of all time.
And yes, Beluga Whales are indeed beautiful animals.
