I'd go for the royal. Hated that one.
There have been home projects to replicate the spectrum, ula included...
one was called speccybob which replicated the machine in TTL logic, meaning it would be possible to take that design and cram it onto a single chip.
But alas, the person running that project ran into lots of bad luck and had to abort it.
The shoe phone as used by Maxwell Smart...
Also not forgetting Gwen Cooper... Same actress played the servant girl to the undertaker in the unquiet undead... (and in fact, the doctor recognised the similarity iand enquired about Gwen's heritage)
Alhhh, but karma bites both ways.... Balance out the death of him and his family in torchwood...
With the doctor and donna noble saving him and his family from the volcano at pompeii
Think you're missing out a few there...
Born in '67, vaccinated against Diptheria, Whooping cough, polio and TB...
Not too sure on the smallpox., maybe by my time, it'd been officially eradicated.
"J.K. Rowling recently revealed that she was the author of a book she had published under a pseudonym, which spiked in sales after she was outed as the true author."?
No, she didn't.
Some blabbermouth at her solicitors (american, look up lawyers), did.
She's pretty peeved about it, in spite of the extra sales.
Tisk tisk tisk... EVERYONE knows that richard III *WON* the battle of bosworth field, but then got murdered accidentally by a weasel called Edmund when he thought Richard was nicking his horse. Richard IV then became king for a year before the entire family was (again) accidentally murdered by Lord Percy when he put poison into a jug of wine rather than a single cup.
THEN EBH7 took the throne and erased that year from history.
My number is one digit off a chinese takeaway nearby... Constantly getting "Can I place an order?" calls...
My usual response is "NO!" hangup.
Might have to try taking the order when I'm feeling extra petulant...
You have either a terrible memory or you weren't around at the start of this...
back in about 2003, a Linux distribution by the name of Caldera bought the Unix part of SCO (the other part went on to continue trading under a different name)
Then. in a moment of utter insanity, they decided to sue IBM under allegations that IBM had included their UNIX "property" in the linux kernel...
Millions of man hours of searching later. people came up with about 5 lines of code that were so generic it was impossible to copyright them,..
So, the IBM trial went on and on and dragged other companies into the mess...
Microsoft "invested" in SCO, presumably to keep the trial going.
Novell disputed what SCO actually claimed to own...
Last year (or was it 2011) the novell case finally concluded that SCO didn't own any of the copyrights they were suing IBM over in the first place.
IBM have yet to countersue, but there's so little of SCO left now it's probably no longer worth it.
That's just general big headedness on our part.
We have no idea about how they lived, acted, fought, courted... etc...
So the pronounced forehead made them look thick and stupid but looks aren't everything.
Just bringing one back won't tell us anything new about them APART from their intellect when guided by us. You'd need a TARDIS to learn about their uninfluenced intelligence and culture back then.
"Now where did I put that thing to blow up the aeroplane?... "
Pulls out a hand pump and an inflatable toy plane.
Of course the UK is in the EU!
We're not part of the EURO but we ARE in the EU.
They're politicians, the only qualifications any of them are likely to have is one for "political science" or some other similar non-subject.
And they don't even need that, joe bloggs from down the street who left school with no o-levels could walk into the local political party office, join up, talk them round, get elected and become prime minister with zero qualifications at all.
(highly unlikely of course but he might be a manipulative charismatic bastard and pull it off)...
That's democracy for you.
In london. But that time it was after a bunch of armed gunmen took hostages in the iranian embassy.
1980, the SAS storming that is one of the iconic images of that decade.
