UK PM Cameron says Internet must not 'be an ungoverned space'

I. Aproveofitspendingonspecificprojects 1

Re: Mental gymnastics & cognitive dissonance?

I keep seeing the name Cameron so perhaps he is getting a message across.

I vote we start calling him arsebiscuit from now on. Unless someone takes up a suggestion and terminates the arsebiscuit.

Wasn't one of our famous RAF war poets a foreigner shot down whilst illegally fighting for freedom in WW2?

And that was before the RN gave them Top Gun. (Probably why he was KIA.)

Ah yes, the gateway to education is not suitably controlled enough, if we can still find out things.

Would it be OK

If someone took a suggestion from someone else and killed that fat bugger before he manages to accomplish anything?

Or would the mere suggestion be a criminal act?

It will never happen

All this talk and comparison isn't the problem. Lighter than air machines could go to the winds and travel at comparable speeds (in one direction) to airliners and thus be helium powered.

They could follow the sun and make use of solarpower development which BTW isn't good enough yet. And they could reinvent the wheel in gas canopies.

But the fact remains that on the ground the infrastructures for all potential customers is geared to motor cars - the end point of all retail outlets these days.

Even out of town retail parks would need a major redsign. It's a problem akin to the refueling of electric cars:


Retailers don't innovate. They spend very little on research and development. They are motivated by acountants not inventors.

As for big military budgets. Anyone foolish enough to put all their eggs in one basket has to keep out of dodge. Pearl Harbour comes to mind in a military mind set where upper etchelons refuse to see the bloody obvious.

And as for military research, the USA went through most of WW 2 without functional torpedoes. Britain was still insisting on half ton rear guns on its fighter interceptors as the Battle of Britain started.

They only went with Hurricanes as they were more easily produced. And stuck with the Spitfire long after the lightweight vehicle made military sense.

Blair sent in an illegal occupying force with no boots and no armour. The same reason Britain lost Singapore in WW 2.

They will never learn.

Dodgy doger dodging

It is fairly obvous to most people interested in physics that a perfect sphere is not going to behave the same way regular irregular footballs behave.

It isn't rocket science it is just simple ballistics. Stuf that has been known for centuries. Stuff that the design of the golf ball is based on.

And the stuff the stuff falling out of the sky sci-fi idiots wet dream abourt.

Silos and chimney take it into acount and I daresay that chemist interested in vortice shedding would have humungous computers set up to analyse.

As for scoring with the bloody things, how on earth are they supposed to do that when it is dificult enough in regular top rank games with reasonably shootable balls? Pick them up and rub one side of them with dirt the way that cricketers are alledged to?

That's what I'm running now.

I just reinstalled an old hard drive and updated it to SP3 and got all the third partyware to run Java adobe the usual suspects, a free firewall nad a free AV.

A huge supply of non Microsoft freeware all needed to surf today's web. And all working quite well too. And it only takes over 8 gigabyrtes.

I'd like to see a Linux distro that can do that. Why, the last OS I was using (DreamLinux) was only a few bytes. Another I had was 30 megabytes. Crapware. You need a muscle car, you get a Yanky one.

Two gears and half a ton of engine. It will go anywhere that has long straight roads.

I. Aproveofitspendingonspecificprojects 1

No but yes but no

Almost all government or near government run agencies encourage customers to put CVs online and send them out to whoever might want to know your personal details.

Job Centres and agencies related to them are an example. Half baked unemployables desperate for a job will sign up for anything. Those govt funded agencies that help you write a CV will give you a pen to butcher your web identity, cook it and serve it up in Microsoft Word rich chunks.

I've never been to an employment agency that has ever mentioned online safety. I wrote a CV in an ofice of one minor agency like the above and was told that everything was perfectly safe by the tutor in charge of the day course.

On all counts there is no defence at law until ther is an offence.

Never defend yourself to the bill. Let them tell you what you have done and what they are going to do about it.

The go to your lawyer and tell them everything.

Then, and only then and only that if you are satisfied with what the lawyer comes up with...

Wait for the bill to do what they said they were going to do.

Then when they change there minds be prepared to confront their next ploy.

Once they start looking, they don't stop until you stop talking to them.

Future, Fast, Flexible, Fractionated, Free-Flying Spacecraft. The idea is to have the various components of a normal big satellite organised in a wirelessly-linked cluster of small orbiting machines, a so-called virtual satellite.

Why not wirefully linked so no one else can hear them talking or interfere with them talking.

Also it will save fuel bills as when you move one, the rest will have to follow. That might save them the expense of invading Iran.

What's the point of having a climate research unit if it is a secret society with its own unfathomable rules and no way to get hold of the data they hold?

Bring back the eunuchs

In the good old days in order to prevent the system going to pot like this, no civil servant was allowed to profit anything that might pass on to his friends and family. These servants were referred to as eunuchs.

History teaches that they were suppose to be bollock-broken but that isn't the truth. They were just ultra trustworthy.

I can't see the people who are in command insisting on that sort of thing for the people they select to be our democratically elected leaders. It would make controlling the gravy train too difficult.

But it would be nice if the lions den wasn't a silly programme for idiots and became a correctional programme for fools.

Henry the Axe Murderer

Let's just revisit the scene of the crime. A raving lunatic works a sedentary job signing laws into being such as the buggery law of England_and_Wales.com

Then he pays a visit to one of his mistresses and gives her a dose then he goes home to tell his wife they are through and she should pack her bags, she's on her way to the Tower of London.

And the kicker is that after disposing of more wives than Harold Shipman, he gets to be the new defender of the faith and passes laws that have no definitions. Like said buggery law.

And centuries later people can go to prison for watchin digial reproductions of not them doing it?

Of course without a definition of extreme sex acts it is difficult to say for sure if this person has done or not done, not done that .

Organic Planets

This is one for the monkeys among us:

How come organic life evolved on a planet with more oxygen than is good for carbon molecules when umpteen planets much larger and hence available for lucky chances, haven't evolved much to speak of but one or two rather endearing storm cells and volcanoes?

Or to put it another way:

When the only people involved in the decision making are scientists and politicians, it leaves one with a "certain" feeling about this.
