Mascara adverts, where the model has artificial lashes on, but it only says in tiny letters
Car adverts where the price on screen ISN'T for the car on the screen
Sales & Marketing = scum

<Otto Z. Stern is a director at The Institute of Technological Values - a think tank dedicated to a more moral digital age. He has closely monitored the IT industry's intersection with America's role as a world leader for 30 years. You can find Stern locked and loaded, corralling wounded iLemmings, talking, drinking and driving, reflecting on Anna Nicole Smith's American chest, fearing Intel Inside Chinese golf clubs, suppressing Bill Gates U, digesting head mash, developing strong Mexican engineers, fearing pink Yahoo!, corrupting his youth in Sadville, masticating beta culture, booing our soccer team, following Jimmy Wales, despising U-Haul, nursing an opal-plated prostate, spanking open source fly boys, Googling Bro-Magnon Man, wearing a smashing suit, watching Dead Man, dropping a SkyCar on the Googleplex, spitting on Frenchmen, and vomiting in fear with a life-sized cutout of Hilary Rosen at his solar-powered compound somewhere in the Great American Southwest.>
Oh man that is so funny! Let me read it again.... yeah still quite funny, I'm going to read it again... Sorry, not funny at all now, it's just a big long pile of crap
Turkey has just voted in an islamic leader.
The Bosphorous (& the Urals) is the border between Europe & Asia
Turkey is NOT European, so should stay out of the EU
Israel aint European either, so why do they play in our footy/singing competitions? They should learn to play nicely with thier neighbours
I'm not planning on hating religion (law-abiding citizen etc) but as an athiest, I have ZERO respect for anyone's religious views, as I do for anyone who believes in Santa Claus or the tooth-fairy.
So is it still ok to laugh at people's religious views, tell them they are wasting thier life, there is no heaven waiting for them, and that they are being conned by by thier priests?
After all, they coming knocking on my door on a f******* saturday morning (when I feel like I'm in hell anyway) telling me I'm going to hell unless I believe in thier god.
When I'm on my bike I prefer miles, as I have no idea if 25km/hr is fast or slow, but I know 18m/hr is quite fast on the flat.
If I'm measuring something small, cm/mm is much easier than inches. 10 and 13/16th inches is MUCH harder to work with than 265mm, and metres & yards are abou the same.
When I'm walking up a hill I like to use km & metres, i.e. 4km along, 1000 metres up, makes working out how steep it is easy. Try that with 2.5 miles and 1,100 yards.
1kg = 2lbs ish. Couldn't be easier
Metric is much easier all round, but it's hard to stop your heading working in imperial , as I have been since I was born
Every single time you load a pdf , BEFORE it displays the doc, adobe reader goes off to the net, and tells you there is a CRITICAL update that simply must be installed right this f****** minute, and often wants a re-boot after that!!!
It's a document reader, as long as it can open a doc, there is NOTHING critical to update
So, Adobe, thanks for the free doc reader, now p*** off
"g-mode vibrations are not optically detectable. But the evidence of the waves is there, and easily detectable, in data on Earth"
Really? I watched Cosmos on BBC2 last night, and there has been built a massive thing to detect gravity waves, which are so weak it is easier to detect a (sea) wave hitting a beach 6 miles away.
They are hoping to detect one in about 2012
I've tried out 2 Orange SPV M700s, the models with a Magellan GPS device. They were ok in getting a 2D lock, but both are crap when calculating elevation, consistently reporting a figure about 60m too high.
Fine for SatNav, but no good with MemoryMap: When mountain climbing, it's worse than useless.
The T-Mobile equivilant, with a Sirf3 GPS, is much better
