I never thought I would say this :-
I feel sorry for the Genius Bar chap that has to carry out the repair
You are mistaking entertaining hairless apes as research.
But since you ask, I visited Seaworld two years ago and it made me want to throw up. I already knew before I visited that I would detest it. But I needed to witness how fucking horrific it was just so that my opinion was validated.
You cannot compare such an awful place with reputable centres with breeding programs and return to the wild programmes.
And I am sure the young chap would love to join a research vessel or have a stint on a Sea Sheppard vessel. Lord knows I would jump at the chance
As soon as he turns 18 I would like to buy him a pint. Seaworld is a despicable slave centre.
Time to go and pay no tax somewhere else?
How long before we can turn this bot into a nazi sex pest?
Oh for fucks sake
Lester was a true legend, his articles always and I mean ALWAYS made me smile.
He will be sorely missed.
I am gonna quaff and ale and have a post-pub nosh in his honour.
2016 is the shittest year ever!

This is just another form of bullying.

@Symon - That's a solution that I wouldn't be totally against.
Any idiot that says we need more nuclear should make their gardens available for waste burial.
Re: Knuckling under
The actual article states "England is not windy enough to justify building any more onshore wind turbines, the chief executive of wind industry trade body has admitted.
"Hugh McNeal, who joined RenewableUK two months ago from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, insisted the industry could make the case for more onshore turbines in some parts of the UK, despite the withdrawal of subsidies.
But he said this would “almost certainly” not be in England, as the wind speeds were not high enough to make the projects economically viable without subsidy."
So Scotland or Wales then, or replace the smaller turbines with larger ones - as suggested by Scottish Power.
Basically a click baited article missing almost all the key facts.
Have you any nuts!
What you actually need is a Yorkshireman.

I read that at first as duct taping and thought.....hang on, I am astronaut worthy.
A beer pipeline isn't new - Bass Taverns (as they were way back when) had one.But not on this scale.
I always thought it was 'take a fence' and wondered why all these folk were nicking from B&Q!

Who hasn't used this method to help the helpdesk with their stats in return for chocolate ;-)
I know of a chap that is employed by the local council as a CRT repair tech. He has been there for years and is on a very good contract. Although they don't have any CRT at the council, but he is far too expensive to be made redundant.
How IT are you?
D, keep them on the phone as long as humanly possible and involve as much tedious small talk as you can muster. In between the tedium try and get as may Monty Python quotes in without being obvious. Gauge their own assumed knowledge with near incomprehensible babble about flooded packet gateways, network degradation based on 443htz bleed-through from the local communications tower. Things like this will heavily dissuade idiots from calling you again.
Sometimes it's worth a small effort.
Let Us Pray
Our saucer which art in a colander, draining be Your noodles.
Thy noodle come, Thy meatballness be done on earth, as it is meaty in heaven.
Give us this day our daily sauce,
and forgive us our lack of piracy, as we pirate and smuggle against those who lack piracy with us.
And lead us not into vegetarianism, but deliver us from non-red meat sauce.
For thine is the colander, the noodle, and the sauce,
forever and ever.
So are you saying....
Maybe we are now able to admit that the reason we have nuclear power stations is in fact just to make bombs. We never achieved cheap and reliable electricity production did we. The whole global mess is basically because America wanted to show Japan it's penis and declare it bigger than theirs.
Anyone who agues back saying - No UKgnome, America had to show it's big penis because Germany was working on a big penis of it's own has never read any history books of any kind.
*apologies for penis analogies but I have been listening to a lot of Richard Herring
tailgate - oh the joys
When I worked for EDS I once prevented someone from tailgating. They were very persuasive in their argument as to why they should be allowed through the back door. I explained that as they din't have their pass I couldn't verify that they should be in the building. I was extremely polite to the point of sickly as I explained that they should visit reception and have them allow them entry to the building. I thought nothing of this until I was asked to report to the UK managers office.
Yep, I had prevented the manager from entering her own building. This had made her late for the EMEA meeting as the big directors had visited. They were delighted that I had stopped her, and weirdly I ended up with a gold day for my ruthless door barring.
In the little shop after the museum can you buy Scratch and Sniff postcards?
Oh my - I am so surprised that the over privileged few have taken steps to hide their money affairs and have cheated taxation systems in their native countries. Surely they are all above board types that are beyond reproach?

You haven't visited porn hub recently then.
I did, as I was erm looking for a friend or summink.

Part of the charm of living in the Norfolk Broads is the lack of mobile phone coverage. If they can hide the masts so they don't blot the landscape then yeah maybe...
Didn't any one ask him what he thought about Donald J Fart and his plan to get Bill to close of the internets?
Shouldn't he of been looking for outlaws?
I wonder if Carlos the Boss would let me have one.
Also have you considered asking Red Bull to lend a hand with the twazzocks that control the skies? They seem to get their way.
So it's basically a spud cannon.
Time to get some downpipe and a can of hairspray and head down the park.
Only the Doctors TARDIS or will any timelord time capsule do?

Re: Please explain to me
Well the explanation was in the article, you do read the article right, or are you just a clicker?
To demonstrate the claim, the two researchers conducted a pair of experiments, the first demonstrating that users can positively identify the gender of a seller based on factors including the types of goods sold and user names, about 56 per cent of the time, while being unable to make a determination 35 per cent of the time and wrong just 9 per cent.
erm hello he was watching a married couple - so I think you will find that's Mrs Conduct!

Re: Bears vs. alligators+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
well when I did on-call at a chemical factory I had seagulls of every size to contend with. I would rather bears or crocodiles.
Re: Let's help you out then :)
If the government said it is now the law to keep a downstairs window open just in case they couldn't get into your house then I am sure you would jump down pretty quick off that fence.
If all you stored on your phone was dick pics and mates numbers then fine, brute crack the life out of it, but it's probably harbouring more data than your laptop.
Now as I understand things, this device was a work device, so maybe as a compromise all work phones should be crackable. What's that feds? you don't want anyone cracking your work phones? cake and eat it springs to mind, and no you can't have the cake.
Re: I don't want to imply it's Aliens
Re: Competition is great...
I totally agree, but where is the value, sorry I mean profit?
My sub-exchange caters for 500 homes. If they upgraded the kit when would they see a return on the investment. Likewise why would another provider ask for some rack space when they are unlikely to see a return in any time soon.
Re: Oh well, in that case:
That's my point - if you have them and you don't use them then they are of no use. Better to get rid and save a truck load of cash.
That's the thing about nukes - if you have them then you might as well use them. Now I think we all agree that would be a dick move, but at least they didn't have this cash resource doing nothing. Nukes are expensive ornaments. Upon detecting the North Korean nuke the bigger dick move would be to retaliate. As retaliation means everyone is fucked.
