taking the piss
is all very well, but you can't knock the scale and complexity of this experiment. also, if the higgs is not found now, it never will be no matter how large an accelerator is built...

yes ian, exactly right. its high time the supermarket chains in this country made dog meat available to the masses. i've always said us stuffy, unadventurous brits need to bloody well cast aside our conservative tastes and eat more domestic animals. personally, i'd like to see hamsters, guineau pigs and cute kitty cats on the menu in mcdonalds too. let the cavery commence.
as jonathan ross might say.
the guy must have been driven to distraction at this point, before actually taking a gun to his car, completely nuts in fact. still, theres plenty of milage in this story for taking the piss, if anyone wants to go down that road. lucky it was only a hub that slowed him down, he might have ended up gunning the engine. imagine he'll be treading carefully for a while. for anyone wondering where the IT angle is here, its in the boot.
oh fuck me.
and most of the other remakes of old classics, is that they try to make them too *big* - overembelish them and lay on shit loads of naff cgi - completely losing the charm, style and identity of the original. am i missing the point? is it not possible to develop a complete original idea, rather than mess with a classic?
mind you, if anyone can make a decent go of it, its del Toro.
"Research at Farnborough in the 1990's indicated that if carbon fibre composite material is shattered in the absence of fire there will be little or no release of respirable fibres. If you burn carbon fibre composite material without subjecting it to high energy impact there will be little or no release of respirable fibres. However, if you subject carbon fibre composite material to high energy impact while simultaneously burning it with a high temperature flame - typically 1000ºC (typical aircraft crash conditions) significant quantities of respirable fibres may be released."
But the best bit:
"Post Crash Management Systems highlight that whilst they are aware of the hazards of carbon fibre particles following an impact and fire situation, the company are still investigating and evaluating the effects of carbon fibres on the resipratory system. To this end John Andrews would welcome any suggestions or information from members of the composites industry dealing with carbon fibre."
i hate people like you. so Right On, yet so utterly out of touch with reality. fact is that outside work related issues, the internet at work is a privilege. do you honestly believe people will use facebook only on breaks? office work is so crushingly tedious employees will do absolutely anything for a distraction.
here at Boredham Unlimited we have two machines in the canteen which allow unrestriced access to networking sites, only two machines for IS to keep an eye on, only accessed during breaks. problem solved.
you, my workshy chum, need a sharp rap upside the head with a rolled up guardian.
