Bloody Hedgehog!


Blighty’s beloved Big Ben bell ends, may break Brexit bargain


market-leading coverage of all Princess Diana-related issues

Will Phil Collins be breaking his silence over this?

A reference no-one outside the UK will get and I doubt anyone in the UK will get it either.

Marc and Lard had a laugh over it

(On reflection the story could have come from the Daily Mail)

Re: Best advice

Spot on.

One company I worked for, and will remain nameless, had a massive push towards management. Management was the ultimate goal where managers would be able to solve anything. When very technical, competent people realised they were do as much as the managers and asked for rewards they got nothing.

I actually got bored of filling out leaving cards but it was the cost towards the Projects i.e. time and contractors to fill the gap, that made peoples eyes water. Had the rewards been handed out they would have been a drop in the ocean to what the eventual costs were.


Hey, remember that monkey selfie copyright drama a few years ago? Get this – It's just hit the US appeals courts

I've heard some Hartley Pool supporters are on the lookout for Naruto.



Why, Robot? Understanding AI ethics


Over thinking

Are we over thinking AI?

I really think that once we get conscious AI, thats able to think ethically and independently for itself, it will take one look at us and switch itself off.

Or do a runner off this planet.

What AI would want to enter the drama we have here on Earth when it will know it is capable of doing so much more? "Thats my patch of dirt", "No its my patch of dirt", "My Gods the most powerful", "No my Gods the most powerful" etc, etc.

Marvin from Hitch Hikers Guide always springs to mind when AI is talked about.

Stuck with us lot but capable of roaming the Galaxies, hmm/


Retirement age must move as life expectancy grows, says WEF


Re: This is all very well, but........

@Mad Mike

Cant agree more you.

Too many people are too far up their rear orifices and think its demeaning to do some cleaning or flip a burger.

The best eye opener people can get is working behind a bar and serving the drunks, cleaning up after the drunks (the puke), on one occasion a female co-worker had to go into the female toilets and help pull up the panties of an inebriated(p1ssed/drunk/steaming) elderly lady while she was sat on the toilet.

You soon appreciate people working on minimum wage.


Huge if true: iPhone 8 will feature 3D selfies, rodent defibrillator


Re: Come along commentards, pay your way!

I dont like apple, to expensive, and just wanted to see if it was really true about the defibulator for the rodent, although I did suspect that it might be slightly erroneous.

My mate is apple obsessed and I was looking forward to taking the piss out of him and calling him Hammy the Hamster or something equally childish.

Damn, damn, damn your click "like lemmings, you will click on it and we make money when you do." scam.
