Screw the kids, think of the revenue.
Obviously, paraphrasing a politician, and in light of recent investigations, I don't mean this literally.
However, when this has been attempted in the past, it did mean consolidation of said service providers, in a manner not in the consumers best interests.
I am surprised , however, that a conservative government is supporting the porn industry, by erecting (fnarr fnarr) a paywall, for free?
Wot? No black puddings ?*
Have been looking further afield to other applications. The perfection of bacon-flavoured e-liquid for vapers? Also... maillard reaction in chocolate.. (opportunities for production line integration and scale-up) . Not to mention multifactorial expression of , and enzymatic breakdown of , the glycoprotein precursors in an static , harvestable in-vivo environment, which remains the ultimate goal. (Bacon-tree anyone?... Not to be confused with the sausage tree alluded to in Family Guy**.

NB: @Americans... don't mention British Sausages.

Then this driverless... whatever... could really..er.. take off.
Taxi Drones with skylift harnesses? Pizza delivery to high rise buildings? (Leave the window open.)
Driving at ground level @ 25mph has just one purpose. To teach our posix-based future overlords how to maneuver in urban environments without getting meatsacks stuck in their caterpillar treads.
Incidentally, any conversation with an <cough> Aesthetically sensitive individual involves a half hour monologue ending with ..."and that's why I don't have an internet connection".
Self-managing problems! Liking it very much.
Old pornographers are busy on youtube looking at videos on VCR operation.
Also, here's a gratuitous link to one of my favourite Picasso's :
Enjoy, but take your hands out of your trouser pockets.
also... for the surrealists
The purpose of a regulator is to..er..regulate. Unfortunately what a lot of the old-school pornographers have been doing recently is getting published in Stubbs gazette and getting proper jobs...sort of.(Simon Lindsay honey is not a good actor/musician/comedian). So...what to do.
I have a policy on the internet and porn. Anyone who says there is too much is usually in the "old biddy" camp or the "old pornographer"camp.
The old biddies (sorry-Aesthetically sensitive) are a mixed bunch, anything from" won't someone please think of the children " to the stabby types that get frisked for gloss emulsion by security at art galleries when a Rubens is showing. Picasso painted nudes specifically to piss these people off.
The old pornographers complained about their lost revenue stream and how much nicer their business model was before this internet thing came along. A good old witch hunt is what we need. Bypass the old competition act and get ourselves regulated but negotiate a nice fat margin.
Some people are "chewers". OTOH, is a pen a potential stabbing instrument?.
"Sorry yer lordship. The defendant became entangled by his flares alighting from a chair, fell down a flight of stairs equipped with a perfectly sturdy handrail, suffering the much visible bruising and abrasions currently demonstrable in the process, until he finally came to rest, impaling his nether regions on a writing implement. A most unfortunate state of affairs."
"Gravity still works."
(28 July 2007, Czech Republic) A pack of thieves attempted to steal scrap metal from an abandoned factory in Kladno. Unfortunately for them, they selected the steel girders that supported the factory roof. When the roof supports were dismantled, the roof fell, fatally crushing two thieves and injuring three others.
(21 June 2007, Philippines) Three entrepreneurs planned to profit from stolen scrap metal. They entered a former US military complex and approached the prize: an abandoned water tank. Bedazzled by the potential upside, the three threw logic to the wind, and began to cut the metal legs out from under the tank. Guess where it fell? Straight onto the thieves. Their flattened bodies have not yet been identified.
(31 July 1997) Two teens were disassembling an electric tower with wrenches when it toppled to the ground. They apparently wanted to sell its aluminum supports for scrap, but they failed to realize the essential role the aptly named "support" plays in a 160-foot tower. One of the men was crushed by the collapse of the ten-thousand-pound tower, while the other dug himself out from under, a sadder but wiser man. Reference: Associated Press
Darwin notes, "These thieves are playing a deadly game of Jenga! A new target is the lead roofing of ancient churches. This entire category may soon become too common to win further awards, per the Rule of Excellence. See also Barn Demolition."
I would include the following myself.
"Significant Past Incidents
At the Dijon conference the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reported that it is notified of about 200 lost or stolen radioactive sources each year and that since 1983 20 sources had been accidentally melted at steel works and other foundries. According to other sources, 65 meltings have occurred world-wide 9. IAEA says it is aware of 49 meltings world-wide at 1998:"
Nope ... meant BOTH cause and response. Anyone wonder why the Irish were growing spuds in the first place? Try growing wheat up the side of a mountain. You certainly can't plough that terrain. All the other land was for paying the rent to the land sharks. ( Absentee landlords had already outsourced their moral obligations, largely.)
The poor laws were the main problem.
Anyone who posts that this spud...or it's patented mates.. would have prevented the Irish Potato Famine is a muppet. The problem then was a sociological/political one. The victorians had a Daily Mail readers view on the Dole...even when people were starving. They preferred to herd them into alms houses..or koncentrationsläger as they might be known today.. More people died from cholera and typhoid.
The only problem with GMO's is it isn't too smart to rely on one lot. A new disease (like blight in the 1840's) could spring up and massive food shortages ensue.
Sorry for the rant, but it's best to nip this in the...er...bud.
.... a certain lack of "Kill-Power" for a quake clone, methinks.
two additional points.. a little off-topic though.
1. Why has there never been an Indian Dr Who??
2. While the Games industry has been a little...er..lacklustre, there have been a few ..er Dalek pr0n films. Why has the beeb not capitalised on this?
my two cents.
Why no mention of Aer Lingus in this article? And why are all the other Uk-Irish carriers mentioned UK based? Hardly a balanced article in that respect. The only problem I have with Ryanair is that their flights are from airports way WAY out in the sticks, and after DECADES of operation, the road-rail links to the airports are
1. MASSIVELY overpriced in relation to the flight cost
2. Take a MINIMUM of half a day from even the most reasonably connected town.
Something else that would never happen in Germany.
Guess who a lot of us Irish regard as pro-European role models?
We';re not talking about the late "Rabbit of Caerbannog" , from Monty python, killed by the "Holy hand-grenade of Antioch". Renowned for it's sharp , pointy teeth....Apparently.
More than one species has been identified by a single tooth..
Here's one with a nice picture
Hang on... did I just quote the Daily Mail in a bibliography? (See icon)
