Sarah Palin's words get data mined

Mike Morgan

People in the US are conservative.

No we are not! We are bigoted, intolerant, uneducated, rednecks, and most of us seem to be proud of it. Can I move to your country?

Drunk and sleeping

I have microwaved my glasses once while drunk sleeping. There was a lot of beer involved and it happened some time after I passed out. Very embarrassing at the time some 20 odd years ago, now we just laugh about it.

A cognitive computer and a helmet that reads brain waves cool. This would make a great game machine......

I thought we had all the puritans!!!

I thought all of those damned puritans were shipped over the pond to the US. They sure make life hell over here. We only get violence, and hillbilly reality shows no nudes on the tube unless you have skinamax.

DHS official moots Real ID rules for buying cold medicine

more smoke and mirrors

they could just ban anything with Ephedrine in it. Why dont they? To much money to be made by law enforcement, drug manufactures and their suppliers. We just had the big flap where US companies were selling Ephedrine to illegal Mexican drug manufactures that only want the Ephedrine and none of the cut that is used by the cold drug manufactures. So they changed their mix and made a fortune. Crime is good for business.

Karl I have never heard that

I have never heard, "The US opinion that brits are prudish". I have just experienced the brits don’t like americans. Well at least the brits in Cornwall. Nice place though. Great pubs! I would go back.

Things have changed

Going active is a very good way to attract torpedoes in my day, I guess I am just to old for all this new fangled war stuff.

You forgot

Anonymous Coward you forgot to add to your statment " Considering the church was created by a B grade Sci-Fi author" you forgot looking for a tax dodge.

Employee's silent rampage wipes out $2.5m worth of data

Mike Morgan

Maybe she

would rather be in jail than on the street. Over here jobs are dear and the loss of a job can mean the end of a semi normal life. You know instead of a pay check you are looking for homeless shelters and hand outs. I live in a town of 56k and we have a 16 to 18% unemployment rate, people will kill to stay employed. Time are tough in George the younger's new Reich.

Hackers go after Excel

Mike Morgan

thanks for the memory jog

Ishkandar, I had completely forgotten A4 paper, but we used bank pins not tape. And the old calc machines with the handle on the side so high tech. While we are at it how about those punch cards, we had a giant basement devoted to there storage. Dont stack the boxes to high! And a hundred people to type in the code. Wow the good ol days.

New emails address you by name, then try to hose your PC

I work in a library

We get mail from the fed and the C of C all the time. We have been seeing these for a while now and they are a problem. Our staff has bare minimum computer skills and most don't have a computer at home, so how does you comments about ID10T users help? I have been reporting these mails to the gov. for at least a month and we are seeing fewer of them now. By the way as a library we can not block a domain our users have email with every fly by night ISP in the country. One of our biggest problems not blocking legit email.

good question

Where was the Risk Evaluation? The Environment Impact Study? The legal department saying "Are you bloody crazy?!?!?"

Let me ask George the younger and I will get back to you................

African human-powered lighting plan announced

I have seen the futrue of solar

There is a way to use solar, but you do not use the power from the solar cells directly. There are 20 to 30 people in the states the have removed them selfs from the grid. They do this by using solar cells to make hydrogen. The hydrogen is then feed to a fuel cell that makes the electricity for the home. The by products of this process is heat and pure water. They take any left over hydrogen and use it to run their cars. Of course the greens us their waist to make methane for cooking. This is completely safe and has no left over radioactive waste. However I have not found out the life span of the fuel cells or the ability to recycle their components. The biggest draw back is cost. But if this industry was funded like oil it would be much cheaper and put the power and water utilities out of business. So we will not see lower cost of this form of power until Haliburton runs out of oil.

Can I immigrate to the UK? I no longer recognize my own country. I am filled with disgust and revulsion at what has happened in the USA. The country is run by greedy men that want to return to the turn of the last century. They look up to the robber barons of the early 1900s and want to be just like them. Just look at the USA and take a warning; this is what happens when you have professional politicians that can think of nothing but getting enough money to keep their carer going. Bush the younger s new Spanish American war in Iraq is not going nearly as well as William McKinley's, but he does use the news as well as Hearst did to shape public thinking. I wanted to say more but work calls.

It was just smoke and mirrors

George the younger is not planning anything, but he makes noises that sound like he is. It is just smoke and mirrors to make it looks like he is doing something other than just supporting his base the rich corporate heads.

This is the norm over here, and isn’t it amazing what you can get use to. We all know that when the younger opens his mouth it is always a lie.

I have never seen such a corrupt government as the one we have now. These kind of corrupt governments are in the third world and supported by the good old USA so their countries people and resources can be exploited. It has been said many times here in the USA we get the best government money can buy, and it is so true.

By the way Chad:

You forgot just trust in god the end is near so why do anything.

University moves to hush Facebook criticism

Mike Morgan

Remember that students are customers

Where else could you pay so much to be ridiculed? These are not just students they are customers and have a right to complain. Maybe it is different in the UK and higher education is free. But across the pond it cost a lot and many times you do not get what you have paid for.

Panama spits out 'poison' Chinese toothpaste

No recalls

There are no recalls because there would be little food left on the shelves. I was looking at the product of what country labels on the canned goods the other day and guess what, many fruits, some vegetables, almost any canned meat, or seafood are all products of China. I am even more afraid to by caned food than I am of the questionable clean genetically modified imported from some other country fresh food. With the government regulators in bed with the mega food corporations there is no safe food left in the good old USA. Fortunately, I live in a smaller rural town and can get most of my food locally grown so at least I can talk to the people producing it and have some idea as to its quality. The produce is seasonal but much safer than the store bought variety. Home canning and a large chest freezer is the way to go.
