Mr. Page also still holds the headline most full of WIN with his inspired "Bubbling billy-goat bursting boffinty brouhaha at MoD" from a while ago.

Points for originality on that one as well, as many tried to impress the same repeating initials technique but were not so great.

Coming soon: Facebook - The Movie!

@Muscleguy - RE: books as weapons

Presumably screaming like a girl during the whole ordeal?

Hell, what happened to the days when men were men and squashed vermiin under their boots with a grin of satisfaction and a crazed look around (as if the room were filled of enemies) while shouting "WHO THE FUCK´S NEXT?! CMON BITCHES! I´LL KILLYALL!!!"

I expected more from someone with that alias. For shame.

AC: because spiders make me cry.

Not just UK and US

Traffic shaping has spread like a wildfire. Here in Brazil, there's no more options left for cable or DSL proveiders.

They all implemented traffic shapping (encryption isn't helping) and we are seeing 15kb/s on torrents, even at hours like 4am, on a 4 megs cable subscription.

There's no where to run

And of course, as it is our local custom, customers get it up the rear without lube so fat bastards can get fatter while counting money (that includes the gov.br consumer rights branch officials)

Reaper aerial killbot harvests its first fleshies

Rodrigo Andrade

@Walter Brown

You are right, it didnt happen in Iraqi. When I read the article I was more interested in the tech involved (ooohh, look at those missiles) than in who were the meatbags in question. Does it really matter who the fleshies being torn apart were? I don't think so, after all, the point of the article is to inform how american deathware is being employed, not on who, and my post was directed at the overly touchy-feely ones crying "bloody murder!" on the fact that some folks involved in a war got killed, and somehow the author had some part of the guilty. If that's your case, diverting the point to an overlook (hey, I can't focus in details while the boss is driving by) won't change the fact that you, sir, is indeed a fairy.

As for the rest of your rant, read the other comments about oil Afghanistan, "jackass". It may not have the oil, but that doesnt mean it isnt strategic territory for suplying it.

And about the title of your rant, pull your head out of your ass and go find out what a Darwin award is. Unless in some way I manage to end my life by posting a comment in El Reg, I dont see your logic, only the fact that you are trying too hard to write something "clever" while completely failing at it. Either way, its too late for that. My offspring is probably running free already by now, so that would dramatically impact the score for a worthwhile nomination.

Give him a break

Give Mr. Page a break. "These are *real* humans"... indeed, so be my guest to go into a comatose shock when you realize these are not the first victims of Dubya's thirst for oil.

War is about killing your enemies, so how do you expect a news article about it to be tame and docile. What should he have written? "More Iraqis "neutralized" by US troops"? Live in denial if you will, but this is El Reg, FFS. I want tech news, and this one fits the bill right in.

And no, I am not american, dont suport the bushies or the war.

Barracuda skydroid to make comeback?

RoTM Angle?

Where is the obvious RoTM angle?

After the NRA bravely struck down the bot, which El Reg shamelessly failed to point as a victory for the resistance by the way, and now this failure to shine the light on the Lizard's Army true intentions with the carcass?

Lester! Lewis is being controlled by exploding cranial implants! Dont trust him!

Pulse rifles at the ready, my fellow freedom fighters. El Reg has been infiltrated.

And I am getting my tilfoil coat.

Racist Reg ignores Nigerian helicopter pioneer

Rodrigo Andrade

Racist? Where?

Mr Turner there has beaten me to the punch, but where the fuck does the flamer sees the racism angle?

It boggles the mind how the ability some ppl have to see whatever they wish in facts instead of reality.

Would it be racism if the guy who built the aforementioned death-trap was norwegian? How about serbian?

Ps: Get your damn webdesigners cracking. El Reg is hard to navigate on Lynx.
