I always favoured hippospotamus, just because it sounds right.
That would be the lesser polka dotted hippospotamus, would it?
You attach the laser to a 'fricken shark and have it swim up and zap the bottom out of the enemy vessel.
We don't expect our security services to guarantee prevention of every single attack. We expect them to do their best to prevent attacks within the constraint of ensuring that our basic rights are affected to the minimum extent necessary. We are prepared to accept a few incidents if it means that no intrusion onto our rights is necessary.
If it's a sword from the fall of Gondolin and forged by the elves of that time, it is already several thousand years old and definitely a rarity. Most swords will have gone rusty by that time, so I for one wish to learn the elvish technique for making stainless steel which maintains a cutting edge for thousands of years despite abuse by trolls and everyone else.
I actually think Google should charge all media organisations to be seen on News where laws like this are in effect but offer a free service elsewhere
...there has been this enormous struggle to find a qualifying plaintiff, there cant be that many who really give a damn, can there?
It really seems like this is a class action by lawyers, for lawyers.
How North Korea, a nation with what is one of the worlds most primitive computing/ internet facilities, has the ability to carry out what appears to be a sophisticated attack that walks away with almost every drop of data Sony has in its possession. Even a couple of random sympathisers should not have been able to do the job.
Sony has not got many friends in the world, mainly due to restrictive copyright practices and DRM. It would surprise me less if some groups who were opposed to this had over a long period of time, wormed their way into Sonys network, and after being confident they could see everything, struck at an opportune moment.
Or it could be Adam Sandler, highly pissed at the lukewarm enthusiasm with which Sony release another of his movies...
...is that since all our ancestors were artists, how did science and progress get started?
North America, Australia and South America are, lets face it essentially Northern European, Spanish and Portugese populations; they're certainly not the native population who were really wiped out. Asia didn't get totally colonised, but I think you really only have distance and the Japanese to thank for that; the Chinese in the 19th century were crumbling against Western inroads. The Japanese learned how to play the game and by 1905 became a (small) world Power, and I think that saved Asia (albeit not necessarily from the Japanese themselves).
..and reasonably happily being a contract analyst/developer without any issues.

I remember Mosquitoes needed 6'000ft of air clearance when they were dropping 4,000lb "cookies" in WW2. I suspect the further you are away from a 'daisy cutter' or MOAB, the better

I always thought Roe was used because it had something to do with eggs.
