So next time the tuna will be guilty and the Detriot guy ends up in the sushi?
Sigh! I used to like this planet. Not so much lately.

I live in a Southend-on-Sea suburb; O2's 4G here (Tesco Mobile) does not provide any data service whatsoever, not in the house, not in the gardens nor in the local high street or train station. Nada, nix, efokoli (Fanagalo for nothing).
There is a good signal, calls and texts are fine but data just wont work (no internet connection) and O2 said everything is working fine! 3G on the other hand works for the data apps, but only at 7-8Mb/s.
Around Southend there seems to be several O2 4G no-data areas. Really useful when you need mobile banking in a shop or business or want to Skype/FaceTime people.
If they can't make 4G work properly then I hold no hope that a 5G upgrade would be of any use. Maybe including Huawei kit would make the 4G work.
On the plus side: some damned good beer, schnapps, Heckler & Koch, a few of great composers, some decent motor cars and resistance to Roman expansion long ago.
On the minus side: Karl Marx, a couple of world wars, sauerkraut, sarin, mustard gas, Rhineland wines and world leaders of industrial pollution until the USA and then China showed how it should be done.
Still ambivalent over their contributions to the UK aristocracy.
You can on macOS if your watching in a browser (cmd+shift+4 - the standard way).
Noticed that there was engraving on the muzzle of Dead Pool's gun in the opening sequence (second film) but too small and fast to read. Screen-shot and got "SMILE" at the top of the muzzle and "WAIT FOR THE FLASH" on the bottom. Thought the humour was great even if it was mainly for the crew who did it
Ah, floor-sorting a 5,000+ card COBOL compilation run; the good old days :)
Remember the fun to be had with those hand powered card punches where multiple keys had to be pressed concurrently? Always some snafu before the end of the line was reached.
Or calling the h/w engineers because some tosser had sellotaped a chard back in place as a correction. Really upset the card reader feed mechanism rollers.
Apply the Hubble constant to the observed red-shift and that gives you distance. That's why it would be nice to have an accurate value so it would be easy to calculate distances without having to wait for a Type 1a to go off near to the observed object.
... so why is this killing relevant to the the use of said equipment?
"At around 9:30am, officers carrying out surveillance saw Menezes emerge from the communal entrance of the block..." according to Wikipedia.
The eyeballing operative had CCTV prints of the suspects and thought he might be of interest. However he had his dick in his hands at the time and thus could not film de Menzes to send images to another Dick who was the Gold Commander of the operation. Thus it's the dicks which caused the evolving cock-up to go lethal.
So why link it to a technology which wasn't even in use at the time? Or do you think ancient CCTV is automatic facial recognition?
The failing there was the good old Mark One Eyeball of the current Met. Commissioner, who was the "Gold Commander" on that botched op., and her underlings. Sweet FA to do with automatic facial recognition.
So your point mentioning him was?
The "Her Majesty's" bit in fact says they mostly are; you cannot sue a Crown Office. It also means they do not need a search warrant when they come to inspect your books, imports (legal and otherwise), etc...
It was always a power that H.M. Customs & Excise had (The Knock) and by combining them and the Inland Revenue the same powers were extended to the tax man. Neat eh!
The Greater Magellanic Cloud orbits the Milky Way and will eventually merge into it.
It is moving closer to the Milky Way; so how do you calculate a positive rate of expansion from two reference points inside a gravitationally collapsing system?
I am intrigued.
