Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.
Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.
Leaving aside the racism in that comment, why change the word order but not the bigger problem of the choice of words? A record-setting attempt may be more likely than not to be abandoned, but a record-setting campaign is surely a campaign which sets a record, and it can't do that if it isn't completed.
That was how I read it first time. It didn't help that there was a line break immediately after "in game".
Surely it is very clearly marked "will release noxious gas if cut" and is therefore not a boobytrap? As far as I'm aware you can, e.g., electrify a fence, you just have to put up appropriate signage. It is cheaper and more effective to deter thieves from trying the lock in the first place than to actually release the gas.
Nuclear power has more than 0 casualties in actual fact during its 60 year history. It's not comparable to coal or oil obviously, but lying is not required.
In the spirit of the first post that pointed out the mist from the cooling tower wasn't "steam", I'd like to point out that nuclear power has never caused a single death because all deaths are caused by lack of oxygen flowing to the brain.
He may still have hired the best people but did he license the best software? Apparently not.
Any program which runs right is obsolete.
