Parisian cabbies smash up Uber-booked rival ride


Yeah I work in Paris and I have had the same experience. Multiple wrong directions, the long way round, a booked cab arriving with over €20 on the meter before you even get in. Rudeness. Lateness. Refusal to take you where you want to go (a la "south of the river" anecdote in London). So I agree. Sod em. Parisian taxis are a licensed cartel and it should be broken.

UK chancellor dishes extra £60m to European Space Agency


Misplaced money

Clearly this 60-70M£ would be better spent funding playmobil space projects which have been proved to be by far the most cost-effective form of space research. We all remember the massive success of PARIS, duplicated now several times by lesser beings. And LOHAN.

More funding for Playmobil research.

Documents in Assange rape probe leak onto the net


He's Australian...

...and we all know what that means. Seriously though, deport the man. Nothing to do with us, and Sweden is not exactly Soviet Russia (in my experience, anyway). Save a few quid for the country.

Does this mean that all bears are Catholic? Wikileaks should tell us. What are they hiding?

LHC boffins turn lead into quarko-gluotic Big Bang incrediblo-stuff


strong? weak?

Surely you mean "strong nuclear" and "weak nuclear" forces, not just "strong and weak forces".

Of course, if you do just mean "strong and weak forces" you can study them in the scrum at any rugby match, you don't need a LHC.


Where do they go to?

I don't understand...

If ever a story needed a touch of Playmobil, surely it's this one... Make it clear to us, el reg, make it clear.

No, really, who cares? What a silly article!

PARIS in 89,000 ft climax


Bloody Marvellous

This is clearly the most important flight since the Wright brothers and any dissenter should go back to staring at the wall in their cube. I have really enjoyed the run-up, the launch and now the slow release of video showing amazing results.

I am in awe of the team. Fantastic stuff.

Buzz Lightyear had it about right - "this isn't flying, it is falling with style". 11/10 for the playmonaut.

what the f*** is a quadrillion?

That is a complete bullshit word. IF you need to tell us this, use Standard Scientific notation, representing it as a power of 10.

Excellent... This is clearly the most important experiment of the year

Sod the LHC...

However, "One thing is certain, though: the Mk 2 will definitely release the Vulture 1, and whatever the final altitude, it's going to be a bloody long way up" - it looked like about a meter to me in the video... ;)

Great article, so many innuendos in one piece!

Yes you CAN open the door in theory, but the way it normally works is they open INWARDS so the pressure differential is against you (the door is actually held closed by the pressurization of the cabin) so it's extremely unlikely. Anyway, that's one reason to keep your seatbelt fastened when seated...

... that America, the home of the overpaid sports person, criticises English footballers for that very sin. Not that I disagree AT ALL, it's just funny.

If people want to follow sports we can win at, can have world champions (or medallists) at can I suggest:

Cricket, Rugby, Cycling, Swimming, Any motorsport, 2 or 4 wheels (dunno about trucks), shooting, curling, that sledgy thing at the winter olympics, athletics, etc.

I suggest we lower the national debt with a footballer tax. They put in 5% effort, we tax them 95%.
