What if Boeing or Lockheed Martin fuck the government into doing cost-plus contracts?
Unfortunately, because of Republican intransigence in Congress, they haven't been able to build and launch a new bird.
Everyone will now be screaming blue murder because of the huge negative economic impact this is going to have. Reliable weather prediction is critical for many businesses, including the ones responsible for the food supply.
I hope the wingnuts are happy.
Maybe they're still trying to reproduce it after all this time. Doesn't sound very promising to me.
Anyway, the scum getting their arses blown off richly deserve their Hellfire enemas. If they take up arms against us, call us kafirs, attack us in our cities, invade and colonise our countries, abuse our hospitality, and impose their inferior culture and customs on our societies, then they deserve to be blown to pieces.
And I don't buy your stupid Muslim "ummah" fantasy. Where's your precious fucking Ummah, when people are starving in Somalia and Darfur? What about the Palestinians? Don't lift a fucking finger, except to use it to attack, bully and guilt trip Jews and white people. You have NO solidarity, but pretend to do so when it is convenient.
You are terrible people, who turn your faith on and off like a light bulb. You are truly vile, disgusting creatures.
Fuck off. We will never given in to threats and blackmail by Muslims.
Just fuck off.
Is English your mother tongue, samzenpuss?
This is terrible. We are letting halfwits, like the current leadership of the
Letting deluded political extremists do this is the height of fucking insanity.
But not that far from New Caledonia.
I was very surprised when I ran into French speakers while working in a supermarket in Surfers Paradise. There are quite a few French speakers around the Pacific Rim, and French isn't as useless as one would be lead to think.
Agreed. The language du jour is just that -- a fad.
When I was going through school in Australia (and experiencing it's utterly stupid and incoherent foreign-language system), the fad went from French and German, to Japanese, to Indonesian to Chinese. Education types have just as many dumb, pointless industry fads as IT.
Pick one useful language and stick with it. And try and have the system reformed to support that.
All the libertoons I know think Australia is a police state. And spending any length of time in the UK or the US will convince you of that.
Libertoons are a whiny, irrational lot anyway. Moving from the US to Australia to escape "teh gubmint" is like jumping out of the frypan and into the fire. Something your typical rightwing libertoon fuckknuckle would be too stupid not to do.
(Not saying that Spanish isn't useful; there seem to be Spanish-speakers everywhere, and it's still growing. Better yet, it's a good starting point for learning any Romance language (including French and Portuguese), and it's one of the easiest languages to learn for native English speakers).
This is an American site, so maybe a lot of Americans think "wetbacks and coolie labor" when thinking Spanish and are prejudiced accordingly.
Maybe Pakistan are just bunging on an act as a pretext to attack non-Muslims again?
Or maybe they're telling the truth for once, but it's the Chinese hacking their fair-weather friend? The Chinese have the market cornered on immorality in general, and criminal hacking in particular, so it wouldn't surprise me.
Even allowing for a "power law" access pattern for the videos (and perhaps, Google optimizing storage of frequently-accessed video in RAM or fast disks...), I do wonder how the hell you can access any video in their archive virtually instantly. Their data centres must be MASSIVE.
Nothing like vaccine stories to get the loonies going, is there?
