GCHQ pushes for 'virtual crocodile clips' on chat apps – the ability to silently slip into private encrypted comms
Re: Virtual crocodile clip?
Bulldog clips have short jaws, used to avoid short circuits on nearby things. Typically sed in large size for jump start/car charging cables.
Alligators have long jaws, for fine things with some risk of shorting nearby. Good for punch down terminal blocks or relay racks.
Re: Alternative solution
* FAX to self
* Copy to microfiche, then print
* Copy 4000 times
* Send to monastery for transcription by copyist monks.
* Translate to ancient language for transmission in the oral tradition
* Rely on a stone in a museum to translate back to English
(Order of steps may be varied)
Re: Wasting the courts time
Can you point to any data suggesting appeals succeed often? My understanding is that overrulings are very rare. The first data I could find does not seem to support your view, see page 33 of http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/2016-Court-Statistics-Report.pdf
where just 4% of all appeals are upheld.

Nuclear is only the future if it is affordable compared to alternatives, and Hinkley Point isn't giving any indications of being cheap.
Making fission cheaper may involve taking some risks, mitigation of which is a big part of the current cost structure.
What we really need are economical storage mechanisms that can be used to capture excess renewably generated power.
