And that bullshit about powering on electronics if you're flying to the States? That just got broadened to *all* flights *anywhere*. I knew it was coming, I just didn't expect it within 3 fucking days...
She was never in when I called. Popular girl, that Jenny.
What physical perfection? That's the point of the singularity, to take the mental perfection and put it in a body that is capable of lifting 30 pounds. If not more.
Boron is B, Barium is Ba...
That's a whole new aspect to contention ratio when you can't hear Irving Berlin's "Always" because they don't have enough phonographs / copies free...
An IP address does not correlate to an individual. I would have thought someone with a user id below 1 million would know that by now.
Yeah, we've got this thing with the major ISP (BT) where you can get free wireless at hot spots around the world (FON) by ticking a checkbox that sets aside bandwidth on an open SSID on the router. The IP remains the same, but a claim of responsibility for what other people do with open WiFi gets a "fuck you" to the prosecutor and to hell with the contempt of court.
Because the older guys can fix the shit the younger guys made in a rush to get to the bars before they fill up.
Do you mean thiomersal, the mercuric component of which is readily excreted by the body in less than a month with no ill effects and hasn't been used as a vaccine preservative in US, Europe and elsewhere since 1999?
Ignorant fear monger.

They have to feed and guard you and that costs more.
So they've also brought back capital punishment (secretly, of course)? Good to know...
You misunderstand the purpose of the act. It's so people aren't forever branded with a label making them effectively unemployable. It is libel because it is the same as someone who didn't have that spent conviction. Because legally it has now never happened. Publicly accessible records of that conviction are expunged, which is the big difference. In US forever in public view will be everything illegal thing you have ever been convicted for, no matter what. And you tell *me* to read nineteen eighty four. You're living in it and defending it.
We've got this thing in UK called Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. This plainly states that when a conviction is deemed "spent" (depends on offence for the timescale, some offences never expire of course) then that it deemed to have never happened in the first place. This can even include being sent to prison. Any use of that information is prohibited and there is no upper limit for a fine that can be imposed for doing so. Plus, use of that information will get you sued for libel, which you will lose and lose badly.
His Twitter feed makes for interesting reading, the replies tend not to be supportive...
