No, the police aren't our masters. Although they are paid to "serve and protect" us, the truth is that their interest is whatever the government tells them it should be and the governments get their instructions from whomever pays the ruling party most. The party, not the government. So pay all the parties that are likely to form governments and you will always get your way.
Most TV already is about "mind control".
They were also trying to get a fetch-and-return lunar soil sample mission completed before Apollo 11 so that they could claim a small victory over the USA. It failed though. It was another year before they got a successful one.
The most telling statistic with the lunar rocks though is that 3 USSR robotic fetch-and-return missions amassed a total of some 300 grammes. In comparison the 6 Apollo missions amassed some 300 kilogrammes.
Nah, that was lost but the Nibiruans will have more to hand over during Nibiru's next perihelion.
Some European countries are defining reserved sectors in the TTIP negotiations, like healthcare, so that some transnational corporation can't sue them over having to compete with an established national service. Others, like UK aren't having any reserved sectors. From the rush David Cameron seems to be in to get it approved I can only assume he is being very well rewarded.
Prior art alarm! I'm pretty sure that was in the Conservative Party manifesto for the recent UK general election.
Why you could write a Python script called CEO.py to do their job.
Maybe it's early yet but I was expecting to see reply posts about how the job is much more complex than that and can only be done by a gifted person and not just any old random Joe. I did consider that probably not many CEOs will have
The Guardian were probably too scared at the thought of an Apple lawsuit to publish the actual text.
The monarch has no say in it. Lords are selected by the ruling government and seats in the House of Lords are effectively for sale. Donate lots to a party and when they are in government you get made a lord.
When the authorities see the word "hydrogen" then that's immediately going to restrict where they can be flown. In the UK that's already not many places.
NASA gives the thermoelectric generators on the Voyagers 10 more years".
The thermoelectric generators on both Voyagers have a finite lifetime. I don't think it's very much longer until they are both inert lumps of metal. 10 years according to NASA.
It's actually on an adjacent planet rather than Earth, but Opportunity seems like it will just keep going.
xkcd joke about it.
I see no problems with other countries suing US regulatory agencies for lost revenue when their deadly products are taken off the market in the US.
Yeah, we have a similar problem in Europe where the TTIP (as in Transatlantic) would open up to a flood of US products that would fail current European regulations. Only the lawyers are going to get rich out of it.
Similar thing in UK. The right wing press will smear the leaders of parties that are not the Conservatives over their ex-girlfriends, the design of their kitchen and even questioning the patriotism of their parents. Nicola Sturgeon earned a "Most Dangerous Woman in the Country" headline in the Daily Mail (just the English edition, they all have Scottish editions with slightly different content because, well, money) despite the fact that she is not even a candidate in the upcoming General Election.
