Royal Navy won't fight pirates 'in case they claim asylum'

Dead Vulture

Just f****** do it

s'a joke


sink the ships and burn the port, demolish it's breakwaters and go back to blighty for a celebratory drink!

I don't mean the imperialistic "if your not with us we kiilllll you" like uk did in the 19th century and the merkins, Israelis and slamicks are doing now. I mean a bit of pride and direct action like the frogs!

FUCK political correctness - when did it ever save lives?

Rant over - is there an IT angle? (hence the headstone)


MPs demand US spooks' guarantees on census data

jon green

Could rey a petition - or add to one

There is this petition already started http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/census-alert/#detail

It misses the point of the US "patriot act" but rather than start another one and dilute the numbers.....? May not have any value at all but I can't be cynical all the time ;-)


Japanese wrinklies spurn robot helpers

For whose benefit?

seems to me this is the old ++ story about change:

If those meant to participate don't see an advantage - or the reduction of a disadvantage - then they wont participate and that applies to all of us.

SO the technology has to do what the old peeps want it can also do stuff that their carers want [monitoring etc] but if it is not wanted it will not be used.

There may also be a culture &design issue here to find out what that generation thinks a helpful non threatening machine (wood, brass & steam?) looks like??

As regards the poster who wrote "those people". What a saddo! You will be old yourself - one day!

Old age may not be too bad if you consider the only alternative to it!



Ad agency pays Paddington to ditch marmalade for Marmite

jon green


Paddington eats marmalade sandwiches = fact.

He only eats Marmite if usa peeps won WWII (they didn't CCCP peeps did)

As for marmite....... its a brilliant way to dispose of chemical waste. No really.


Cops seek 179mph net vid biker

Liar Liar Fool

As a motorcyclist/biker myself, looking at the sped of passing scenery and the angles of lean I reckon the guy/gal has reset the speedometer from mph to kph - easy enough on most modern bikes.

However nothing alters the fact that he/she is a dangerous road user and an awful biker, the overtakes are ragged and poorly planned, the timing is rough and the "line" is all over the place. If he ever meets anyone driving or riding that badly coming in the opposite direction ....

Good riddance I say his sort needs to be bred out Viva Darwin!
