My pleasant passport chap tried this on a recent trip to LA...
His opening gambit was - spain are out of the world cup, now I don't give a rats ass about such things, but I immediately feigned an interest.
His second question was about what I did for a living, I was terrified as I work for IBM, and he wanted to know exactly what I did. I tried to make it sound exciting, I think I got away with it to.
But what freebies did you get?
When can we buy SPB merch?
I want to shop my support with a stratodangle!
No streetview of the locations you actually want!
Bloody amazing chap - I'm just pleased he didn't have to squeeze gulls for precious sustenance.
I think a lot of people are missing the point on this and are too happy to bash apple.
Currently in you Accessibility settings you can have the flash go off when you receive a message and the like. As the flash is a little harsh it can sometimes be obtrusive, so maybe a pulsing apple is a good addition. Same function, just gentler.
Hmm no tell me, does your android / winphone or blackberry do that?
This is also my view, the empire may of seemed scary at first but they brought about and end to piracy and trade stability. The Jedi were a bunch of fence sitters, telling people what to do but not actually doing much themselves. Basically they didn't give a rats ass about the massive deaths that they caused by going against galactic peace.
You have cheered me right up
Last weeks article was a bit meh, but this one......hang on I have a text.
Oh, it's nothing. Jeez your nosey, OK it was from my mate Jaime, yeah her, not my wife. She never texts unless she wants milk. My wife that is, sometimes jqaime messages me about pasta, I think that's because I said once I like pasta. I also like breast and painted toenails, does this mean I should ask her next time she's over from America? Oh where was I ....Oh yes, I quite liked reading this on.
Hang on, another text, oh it's a video on iMessage....Hmmm Seems she knows about breasts.
Re: Verizon can STFU & FOAD, Kthxbai.
Truly it may me the land of the free (they are not) and the home of the brave (more like the make do)
But the fact is the average Joe is continually been fucked by whoever they get there services from. When you have a country as big as the USA it seems that they are more controlled. They don't have the choices of the free and modern world. You only have to look at how much they pay for a piss poor service to realise that the roll out in a smaller country such as the UK is actually great value.
Yes we in the UK will moan about connection speeds and rural fibre, but seriously at least our nation can afford a phone in every citizens hand, and a decent data connection to use.
I hope you're cattle-prod proof
This cabinet game was a proper bonding game, so many randoms met as a kid down cleethorpes.
Re: Dammit Lester!
Nope - I mean Del Taco, I wouldn't set foot in a Taco Bell.
I want a shrimp taco now......why doesn't the UK understand the importance of mexican food?
If I start a kickstarter for a Del Taco where should I put it, and who would want to be in on it.
Re: I think there's a moral to be derived from this story
Have an upvote
I have now invested in an android burner phone, erm for testing purposes....@Jedit, you are now my alibi
Hmm can you....
fly them close to a kerb for all those up-skirt shots? - Daily Mail side bar, I am thinking of you.
On a serious note, I like the tech in camera drones, but the invasion of privacy is just a bit creepy. I would much rather that drones just kill and mame, at least you can hate them properly without been tied up in privacy and stuff (OK perhaps not as serious as I had hoped)
of the what happened next meme, just wish I could remember what the article is about.
Don't be silly, she doesn't even know what a computer is, although it might be her friends hacking the down vote system.
Like so many comentards...
Why doesn't this wanker fuck the fuck off.
*for American readers, Wanker simply means a masturbater. If that doesn't sit well with you then please think of Rupert as a claw fisted cock juggler
In honour of spaced
We still are getting fleeced, just by a multitude of ways.
Whilst I have no experience I do fancy living in Miami, and I hold an excellent data retention record. In fact I am so tight with data that no one gets any emails!
is such a disappointment, if Dabbsy is going to advertise things then I expect much much better.
No wonder he's all miserable, someone should kick him in the glasshole, and then snapchat it or summink!
Is it wrong that I like to see ladies with pipes?
And does it have a particular name?
*Mrs gnome has a pipe that I insist she chews on when she is doing her degree work, well now she's on her forth I figure she has every right to be boffinised.
I used to think that Musk was a massive cock....
And then he gave his patents away, and built a rocket, and actually turned out to be a decent chap.
AND NOW THIS! Any donation to open a Tesla museum gets my vote and yet another reason to give the guy a hug.
If they ran a web campaign to help the funding I would actually give a few quid, I have a massive soft spot for the father of the modern world. This has made Friday a bit better.
Hey Musk, I'm buying you a cold one -------->
This is simple plumbing....
poor water pressure but massive drains for effluent.
I guess Verizon totally enjoy taking the shit and leaving their customers unwashed.
Would this make it a Kellogg phone?
Tasty Fruit and Fibre?
*I'm going, and I didn't have a jacket, I just sorta dropped it at work.
Whenever I see Seal i now think of the french for seal.
hey, it makes me laugh!
will this create inner city dogging, no park required?
is it only me....
that sniggers when they read PNAS?
Re: Top Gear
I can believe that, after all my comments are written by a team of egotistical ramblers
Makes you wonder what other data the BBC accidental give away.
I smell NSA interference, Snowden was right or summink
It will be called Mega-City and will be policed by judges
Re:Computers don't have safe words
oh, but my computer does have safeword, and I am buggered if I can remember the phrase
lights out, all out
*I'm going, the one with the wind up torch and tinfoil hat
This dude eats Bear Grylls for breakfast.
Towering thug? Threatening manner?
Not my experience at all, recently in LAX the first thing the chap said was "did you know spain is out of the cup?" this exacerbated me, as I am not a footy fan. Followed by, "you haven't said where you are staying" Once I had explained that I couldn't legitimately answer the question as my US lady friend had arranged the accommodation he just smiled, wrote with a sharpie on the form that I was staying at the airport and wished me a great time.
I am sure that TFL or rather the London black cab drivers would rather have the uber drivers parked on the flight deck
My Dad - that is all
"'ere, some C*nt keeps prank calling me"
Re: Or they could consider joining the first part of the 21st century...
most of the transactions were under £10 and the effective commission rate was 30%???
Not these days, a terminal that plugs into your iPhone costs £60 and only charges 2.7% for any transaction.
Not one mention of.....
2. girls in inappropriate dress
3. occasional jaunts to very scary chemical plants
4. free coffee
Therefore, with regret I cannot join as your subby - also I have very little experience.
Re: Suspect Much ?
helicopter what? You can't see it? And you never will, until it's too late
I'm thinking it's either Scuzzlebutt or Manbearpig
I hear that Nasa is suing Apple - because ISS sounds a bit like iOS
@ John Smith 19
Oh......nope, still nothing.
Never heard of her, even after a google I am none the wiser.
Maybe she could use hard earned tax payers money to raise her profile.
And here was me thinking this had the smell of public relations and marketing. - My mistake.
Re: Mathematician vs. a "Real" Scientist...
I thought that meteorologists were just physicists with umbrellas, and pure mathematicians were just physicists in sandals.
University Help desk

Has anyone thought to.....
ask Stephen Fry?
I refuse to read this
....and will simply wait 2 years until Mr Dabbs is ill.
