Lets hope its a very clever Ad campaign
Given Barrs history of having very good ads promoting this wonderful hangover cure I can only hope and pray to the gods of hangovers that this is just a brilliant way to get folk talking about the product and rushing out to A) Stockpile it (Have 20 cans still left from Xmas myself) or B) try it for the 1st time.
Re: from the 3rd photo
The reason that the stars do not show up in the photo is that the stars are so dim that the camera cannot gather enough of their light in a short exposure. Our eyes are a lot more sensitive to light than photographic film hence you can see them standing on earth, but I bet you would have much the same issue taking a photo of them and having them visible - without using some really long exposure settings.
So How do they stop nature recreating the same experiments...
Seeing as the very same particles are slamming into the earth at pretty much the same speeds, the only difference is we are re-creating the environment here on earth and have a whopping big camera to gather the data from the impacts. Fact we are still here proves the point that the world will not be swallowed up by a back hole. Infact the densest matter we have in the story here is the pesky lawyers.
Sounds like Tescos. Another trick these self service monsters like doing is providing any change below the £3.50 threshold using only 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p denominations. I now walk to customer services and get the shrapnel exchanged into something which wont drown me in the event of me falling into a body of water.
Remember the film posters - "Sean Connery IS James Bond" ? Well, yes he was, and always will be. He had just the right look, particularly if you were already familiar with the books. Moore was an joke ("Carry On Bond"), Dalton and Brosnan were not all that bad and now Craig`s excellent attempt - Connery, however, is burned into our collective memory as 007, however creaky some of those early films now look.
He will always get my vote.
Mine is the one with "Made by Q branch" patch.
I can sympathize with the manager. A local 'pub' does 'Indian' curry buffet nights near me. There are a couple of utter pigs who ruin the buffet there too, diving in and guzzling all the rice, beef curry, nanns, popadoms and bhajis as they arrive - to the extent that no one else gets a look in for twenty minutes and then rushing back when fresh food arrives setting up conditions for a no holds barred free for all for the rest of us over the scraps they leave. One of these herberts is known to not eat at all for 2 days beforehand so he can stuff himself stupid.
As with many
I get sick of adverts offering superfast broadband, speaking as a person (connected to the main exchange) who has never been able to watch iplayer or to stream internet radio without breakups.. Seems the folk with already superfast connections get faster all the time whereas the rest of us are stuck with the same crappy speed. Some of us would be happy with a stable 1 or even (god forbid) a 2mb connection just to use a few online offerings without it struggling!
I can not believe that during the weeks/months/years that this film was being written, filmed and cut that not one person stood up and said that it was a pile of pants!!
Its 96 minutes of my life I will never get back and still a sore point with the wife who took me to see it as I was getting bored shopping. To this day I have never complained about shopping with her ever since.
Flame as everyone one involved in this movie should burn in hell for it.
10% Increase in speed!!!! I have not ANY speed increase for 6 (count them) years and still lucky to get 1mb connection.
The internet to me is just for news sites and downloading Itunes updates (slowly). If anything Ofcom should have a minimum standard and demand that anyone on a <2mb connection get it for free. I sure as hell bet that would very quickly get the broadband infrastructure in most regions up to a decent level.
Mine is the one with the 3g sim in the pocket.
<Title space for rent.>
BT Should really be revising there whole roll out plan. Forget about the exchanges where users are more than likely already getting 12mb+ speeds and speed upgrades every other 5 months. BT should really be getting there finger out and helping the mere mortals who are on sub 2mb connections (Ohhh even a 2mb connection would be a HUGE moral boost to myself and most others)
Just hope BT read The Register comments to find the true scale of the broadband speed divide which this country has. I honestly believe that I will be on the same crappy connection speed I have in 7 years time. Please BT give the rest of is a chance to see what the BBC Iplayer, Sky player, 4oD is really like!
Not a happy BT customer.
For a decent broadband speed (rather than the 0.5 I am now getting) I would be willing to help dig the entire streets ducts if it came to it!
But my area is not on the list of any increase in speed (due to crappy cables and BT not wanting to touch them) so I will still be wondering what all this "Watch Again" stations are actually like for the next few years at least. - I would be happy with even 2mb and that's not asking much is it lol!
They are all idiots
My wife and I were taking the kids to Disney Land last year and to keep our kids happy we had made them up play packs to keep them occupied and to stop them bugging us on the flight. Now the youngest decided to fire into his on the car trip to the airport and had came across the lego and made what every boy would - a crappy looking gun to shoot passing cars with.
During the pass through security this "firearm" was discovered and said he could not pass through with it. Now being the logical person, I simply broke up the lego gun back to its original pieces thinking the problem is solved.....nope my son now had a disassembled firearm according to the security. Where the hell do they find these guys!!!!!!
Thank you BAA for the pleasure of trying to explain to a 4 year old why his lego was taken off him....bunch or arseholes.
Getting sick of this
Thats the 5th outage in so many months for me. Sadly I only have BT kit in my exchange and moving to another ISP will still mean the same crappy speeds due to BT's shit aluminum telephone cables they have in my area so I get less than a 1mb speeds on the main exchange. How about I pretend to pay you seeing as your only pretending to provide me a Internet service ffs.
I'll get my coat ready as I will be heading to the pub straight from work.
Common sense required.
As long as its a valid army ID I cant see any issues...apart from some anal landlord deciding use it as an excuse to stir things up at the council about there rules. Knowing what these guys and girls go through in Afghanistan (Have pals over there at the moment) I would happily shake and service persons hand and buy them a drink myself.
So standing at security with what looks like a pensioners day out...The ONLY person who got asked at "random" for a scan was my blooming wife. Obviously the perv.....sorry security operative didn't fancy seeing a old lady to go through or a bloke for that matter. As long as there is a hairy arsed bloke who failed the McDonalds interview I am sure as hell not trusting these scanners and BAA's claims that my rights....maybe it should be women's rights will not be breached.
Mine is the lead lined jacket.
Have they ever watched Top Gear?
Name one country which hasn't been poked fun at by the Top Gear Team, Just goes to show you Romanians have zero sense of humour.
PS - To the Romanians : If you were watching a repeat of the show on "Dave" you probably would find they have cut the interesting local scenic shots which the BBC tend to show. So its all Daves fault :-)
I am well impressed with the PR machine boasting more exchanges getting fibre, Pity they are none in the country I live in getting this upgrade. Hell I would be happier with better cable to my exchange let alone shiny new fibre like the folk down south get.
Pissed off fully at running less that 1mb for the last 10 years and no sign of things improving any time soon and I will not be holding my breath for BT to be getting there heads and hands out from fondling themselves to be improving my situation any time soon.
I agree with BAA
These machines cant print, They cant even display the picture of the poor sod getting scanned HOWEVER I bet the terminal attached to the machine can sure as hell print/store/upload to some perv site at a drop of a hat though. Remember these machines are being staffed by humans (Or in some cases a kind of monkey) who are going to be wondering how much he can sell a rather poor quality photo of celeb x to his mates down the pub as he/she walks through the scanner.
