Wind? Seriously, what's wrong with the word "dies"?

They just want to be sensational enough to flog their own agenda to subscribers. Whenever I've been knowledgable about a news article (one that involved me personally) my impression from the news organization's take on it was that they got completely the wrong end of the stick and actually spread falsehoods and lies.
I'm wondering how Scunthorpe Council is getting on. Did they get blocked, again?
At least quote it in context...
"The foundation of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being squatting outside the world. Man is the world of man – state, society. This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d’honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion.
Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo.
Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain and pluck the living flower. The criticism of religion disillusions man, so that he will think, act, and fashion his reality like a man who has discarded his illusions and regained his senses, so that he will move around himself as his own true Sun. Religion is only the illusory Sun which revolves around man as long as he does not revolve around himself."
Just how many Libraries of Congress are we talking about, here?
Driverless car pulled over by driverless cop car and given a ticket.
We have a lovely convention centre here in Vancouver, built and opened for the 2010 Olympics. In Bing maps unfortunately it is still at the piling stage
Something akin to removal of appendages like in the 'old' days would seem to be appropriate.
If they really want to live in a place with no infrastructure then exile to a barren island would be a suggestion..
It actually makes more sense!
They should be able to see that you are being harassed and block the call for you.
"As we strive together to fight off the new evil, let us pray for our country and men of goodwill wherever they may be"
Because you know if there's ever an imminent threat the members of the Royal Family aren't going to be sat at Buck House with a cuppa tea counting down the seconds...they'll be on their merry way to the other three corners of the globe.
Fcuk you mothertrucker!
Now...was I profane or not?
...and don't even get me started with Team Foundation Server vs SourceSafe!
Actually, Microsoft have been working on this aspect to try to slow down VS to compete with Eclipse. VS2012 for instance now has a pause built in where you can't do anything for about 10 seconds when you open up an aspx page, presumably while it parses the file for you...even when you don't want intellisense and just want to copy some code out. It gets really annoying after a while.
Vanilla VS2012 won't let you build an installer for a Windows service either, which you could do with VS2010, so I have to maintain both of them on my dev box, unfortunately.
Just play any, for example, Justin Bieber tune and the resulting sound waves instantly move me out of the room. Most commercials on TV work the same way, unless I'm in control of the remote.
