She wants to be free from meeeeeeee
Can't say I blame her.
what's 200kg force in the reg's units?
what a surprise
when it come to reporting climate stuff the reg gets it wrong http://www.carbonbrief.org/blog/2012/06/fimbul-ice-shelf-not-melting-as-fast-as-thought-and-why-this-does-not-mean-the-antarctic-is-not-losing-ice and http://www.open-ocean.org/gallery/show/107
"A few days after our article was published, a piece profiling our work appeared at the Register of the UK written by Lewis Page entitled, "Antarctic ice shelves not melting at all, new field data show." This is the equivalent of turning the statement "the cancer is not as bad as we thought" into "you don't have cancer." The severely distorted version of our study's conclusions then spread rapidly across the internet. It is a pattern that climate researchers have unfortunately observed many times, part of a widening gulf of misinformation between scientists and society. As one of the authors of this study, I can only repeat: this is not what we said. We have been misrepresented, and you, the reader, have been misled by some of those who claim---as scientists and journalists both surely should---to provide you with facts"
so who's going to be the first
to sue apple for infringing on their motion detection patents.
"Total Load Phenomenon"
appears to be missing a couple of words. insert "of Bullshit" between Load and Phenomenon.
that's not the whole story.
Why not look at what Cern have to say? http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2011/PR19.11E.html there are 2 possible effects. it's not quite so cut and dried as the reg/science mag make out. in fact they could even have been going faster than previously thought.
may not be time to wrap you computer in tinfoil yet
damn I just got a job lot in.
so well that they copied google's own little version's circles idea and called them lists
let me guess
it was a box that said "bomb" on it
the god botherer
was sacked before he even started, and he wasn't the head anyway, he was the GP amongst the mix of people which it is meant to be made up.
let's hope the rest of the electronics worked, (or were remembered to be turned on)...
@ ac erm
I suggest you read jack of kent's blog mention by steven jones or http://www.thelawyer.com/the-twitter-%E2%80%9Cbomb-hoax%E2%80%9D-case-worse-than-we-thought?/1003651.article also by the same guy. intent should have mattered.
it's not aaron kempf again is it
the 3rd fotw (that I'm aware of anyway) if it is. must be some sort of record.
Why don't they just...
draft in the local rugby (league or union matters not) club players in their off season to be stewards just like they do at the cricket. Oh yeah I remember american rugby needs all sorts of pads and helmets, and a major misunderstanding of the legitimacy of forward passes.
any indications of if/when the freeview hd kit is going to be available, seeing as I'm in the NW where it's meant to be starting up soon.
I saw something similar
I'm from Liverpool and I saw something similar in description to that a couple of years ago. they must be repeat visitors
a quantum physical information wave
I'm not sure what one of those is but I think I'd rather have whatever comes out of the phone being blasted at my head than that
this doesn't mean more delays on my already delayed new monitor. I ordered i in November and on the day it was due to arrive I got a message saying It wouldn't arrive until a month later. I can't keep using my crappy old CRT as an emergency monitor for much longer.
perhaps that should have been
So are they proposing a limit on how much light we can receive? After all light is electromagnetic radiation
velocity / pressure / density
velocity seems to be missing, kilodouble-decker busses per hour seems the most useful for longer distances, linguinis per second for samller things
pressure will obviously be jubs per square linguini, although the suggested lesser length of Heinz Baked Beans Tins (surely that should be HBBTs) might work as well and so it would be Jubs per square HBBT
density will be jubs per grapefruit
"Whats the new unit for measuring "angles"?
What with measuring the IT and paris hilton angles, we need a new unit for angles..."
It's obvious, angles are measured in ITs and their inverses are measured in Parises
Nah Joe's been using the Microsoft currency converter...
@ anon @ me
Simon that'll be approx 240 pounds of fuel.
Here's one for the metric people what is the difference between something that has the density of 1 gram per cubic centimetre, 1 Kilogram per litre and 1 Specific Gravity?
Imperial vs Metric
I work in the offshore oil industry so we use a hodgepodge of measurements. Currently I'm mostly using mostly metric, but I mostly have used Imperial. Mostly irrelevant to most people but I can visualise what a psi looks like while I haven't got the foggiest idea what a Pascale looks like, let alone milliPascales. I use Barrels as opposed to Cubic metres, though the thing most people think of as a barrel is not a barrel it's a 50 gallon drum, a barrel is 42 US Gallons or approx 160litres.
In real life I use a mixture of both. Distances go millimetres, centimetres, inches, feet, yards/metres, miles.
Ounces have always confused me though.
Am I the only one
that thought that they should change their name to Rambush
better not call them neds apparently it hurts their feelings and is offensive, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4075012.stm
the snow we get on untuned channels are the alien transmissions that Francis Vaughan tells us will appear to be random noise to us, and not the energy caused by the big bang after all.
