Bill Gates is once again the richest man on Earth


Re: The rich get richer ...

"I hate this attitude that "The Rich" are spontaneously generated whenever someone needs a Saturday morning cartoon villain to blame for their inadequacies. "

it's almost as ridiculous as the attitude that all it takes is hard work to make money and if you are not successful it means you are lazy, I'm sorry I was so lazy I chose not to be born to wealthy parents!


Money can’t buy you happiness

but its more comfortable to cry in a Limo then on a bus


Re: The rich get richer ...

Comparatively, unless you are in the top % of earners, you did get poorer.

Justice Ministry to spaff £70k finding out how prisoners like to use ILLEGAL mobes



I can suggest a number of options that may cost around £70,000 to solve the problem rather than just look into it.

Install devices to detect mobile phone signals, wire them up to loudspeakers turned up to 11 with either a 5 second loop of the sound of vuvuzelas being blown at the South African World cup, or Christina Aguilera hitting a high ‘warble’ note (YAAAAAyaaaaYAAAAAohhhhOHHHHHohhhh), both can be played constantly for half an hour, supply the staff with ear defenders.

Pay a telemarketing company to spam call every prisoner with offers on holiday flights leaving that day.

Give all the prisoners mobiles on 3.

Line the roof and/or the walls of the cell block with metal to block and disrupt the signal.

Increase the budget of the prison staff to allow them to employee more people and carry out more searches.

Gay hero super-boffin Turing 'may have been murdered by MI5'


Re: @AC

While I agree with some of your statement, the point is that line “equality under the law and equal value as a person" has not been reached yet, let alone crossed.

We are also talking about someone who was prosecuted and forced to be ‘chemically castrated’ or go to prison because he was gay, which led him to lose his job and his livelihood, physically and emotionally change him and ultimately kill himself (or some think to be murdered), and while this didn’t happen in my life time, it did in my parents, its still in ‘living memory’.


Re: Militant P.C. Agenda is wearing thin...

“the methodology of Political Correctness gone wild” Totally agree, its political correctness gone wild that people should expect to be treated equally, what next, letting women vote? Why back in my day we used to chuck Jews down wells, castrate gay people, and hang people for being black on a Tuesday, and now you are telling me I can’t? ITS PC GONE MAD!

I never said you are not entitled to your opinion, I never called you a racist, homophobic, or anti-semite, I was just demonstrating that your apparent disgust at gay people wanted to be recognized as people is exactly the same disgust applied to a number of other sections of society over the years, I could have used women and Christians in the middle east as the examples.

The difference is my opinion is

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”

It’s not exactly a new idea, but then again I guess Thomas Jefferson, was one of these lefty do goodie Commie PC types as well.

As for NAMBLA, did you just compare being Gay, Black, or Jewish to being a paedophile?

No matter if you like it or not, two adult women or two adult men can have sex with each other as long as they are both consenting and don’t do it in public, just like straight people. This affects absolutely no one but themselves, No one if forcing you to watch them.

Your last paragraph is not about equality, its about you being fine with people being discriminated against because you are not one of them and you don’t want this to change because it makes you feel uncomfortable.

“If your PC type would spend as much time keeping your own house in order as you do complaining they are being "discriminated" against, no one could criticize it.”

Just to point out I am neither Gay, Black, or Jewish, so my own “house”, being a heterosexual white Protestant is exactly the “house” I am trying to sort out.


Re: Militant P.C. Agenda is wearing thin... Contradiction much?


“Be openly gay if you want to but please do not force your opinion that everyone should accept your behaviour” ... “I have the same right to my own opinions or beliefs as do you”

How about I turn it around?

Be openly homophobic if you want to but please do not force your opinion that everyone should accept your behavior” ... “Gay people have the same rights to their own opinions or beliefs as do you”

At what point does your opinion that gay people should not try to ensure they are treated equal regardless of their sexual orientation outweigh my opinion that all people should try to ensure all people are treated equal regardless of their sexual orientation?

The problem comes from the idea that you feel you should/are being forced to have to ‘accept’ the ‘behavior’ of a gay person, as if being gay is a behavioral flaw like being an annoying drunk, a bad loser or unkind and rude for no reason, what exactly is it you feel you have to ‘accept’? That someone is gay? So? How does it affect you in anyway?

Lets have a little test, I have copied what you wrote only changing a few choice words. Read it and tell me if you feel it is acceptable.

"Regardless of the consequences, perhaps it might be prudent to consider that forcing ones opinion on others is called bullying in some parts and many find little difference between that definition and the "accept us or be called racist" rhetoric from the black community. Same thing goes for the rest of the politically correct bullshit I hear on a daily basis.

I do not have to accept the viewpoint of anyone and I willingly admit that you have exactly the same right as I. Be openly black if you want to but please do not force your opinion that everyone should accept your behaviour."

Or how about this?

"Regardless of the consequences, perhaps it might be prudent to consider that forcing ones opinion on others is called bullying in some parts and many find little difference between that definition and the "accept us or be called anti-Semitic" rhetoric from the Jew community. Same thing goes for the rest of the politically correct bullshit I hear on a daily basis.

I do not have to accept the viewpoint of anyone and I willingly admit that you have exactly the same right as I. Be openly Jewish if you want to but please do not force your opinion that everyone should accept your behaviour."

How the NSA hacks PCs, phones, routers, hard disks 'at speed of light': Spy tech catalog leaks


Re: ##Redacted##

While I agree with the sentiment, from what I remember reading the hammer didn’t cost $600 it was part of a bulk equipment and spare part purchase brought for a few thousand and the ‘bean counters’ just allocated each item as costing $600 to make things simple, I think the quote went

“everyone talks about how much that hammer cost, but they don’t mention what a great deal we got on the $600 Jet Engine”

As for the toilet seat, that was to replace a broken toilet in a submarine that had to be a certain spec (I’m guessing size, weight, noise reduction, etc), as they didn’t make those toilets anymore, , the money wasn’t on just buying a new toilet seat, it was on the R&D of more or less reinvent the toilet seat.

As for the third item, well you can’t put a price on good coffee.

British Second World War codebreaker Alan Turing receives Royal pardon


Re: Fantastic News @AC

Way to miss the point.

The Queen has issued a pardon to a dead person who was branded a criminal and punished both physically and emotionally, for being gay.

I would consider this, apart from a few law consultant fees and a bit of pomp and circumstance to be a relatively low cost exercise, which few can disagree with the motive for doing, personally I think this will raise awareness of the treatment and behaviour of people in our past and hopeful send out a message that it is not acceptable, considering what is going on in Russia, India and continues to happen in parts of Africa I think it is a positive thing.

Issues to do with lack of jobs, redundancies and issues with the economy is not a low cost exercise that only requires the Queen to sign a bit of paper, do you think the Queen has barrels of jobs she just has to open for all to be well?

A lot of people do not have work, and a lot are not secure with the jobs they have, from no fault of their own, including myself, but to think the Queen can do much more than hire extra butlers or ground keepers is, for want of a better word, stupid, especially since I assume you are not a butler or grounds keeper.

In other words you are complaining that instead of everyone rebuilding homes after an earthquake some people are making tea for the survivors.

Snowden: I'll swap you my anti-NSA knowhow for asylum ... Brazil says: Não


Re: @Maharg @AC

I think you need to read my comment again, and the point I was making, unless you were trying to agree with me in a very confrontational way, I was taking about Northern Ireland, not the UK where most people have as little knowledge of what happened as the yanks, and I was talking about the troubles, not post 98, hell I'm not even including Omagh in the count.

But you also forgot the two soldiers shot dead getting a pizza, the Catholic PSNI man killed by a car bomb, the prison officer killed in a drive by on the motorway, as well as a few others, and you spelt Holywood wrong.

But what you did get right is we dont want to go back down that road again, but that doesn't mean some ignorant dick can just dismiss what happened and effected so many people with such a crass attitude and lack of respect


@Don Jefe

>>>(on the IRA) the facts are the chances of being harmed by them were quite nearly non-existent. The British responded with what appears to have become their standard, they responded with fear.<<<

Well, you sir have never been to Belfast.

As someone who is from Belfast and grew up there in the 70s and 80s I can tell you first hand that I did not know a single person who did not have a friend or family member “harmed” by the IRA, Real IRA, PIRA, or any of the other groups, and I am sure if I had been born on the other side of the wall the same could be said for people harmed by the UVF, UDA or any of the Loyalist groups also supported by the US, for your information there has been two bombings just in Belfast city center, THIS WEEK.

In simple terms Northern Ireland has a population of around 1.8 million, more than 3,600 people were killed during the worst of the troubles and many more since then.

In other words, in todays figures that would be 1 out of every 500 people killed by terrorists, and that’s just killed, not to mention all the knee capping’s, burns from petrol bombs, and other injuries both physical and mentally as a result of just being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

If I remember the US lost less 3,000 people on 9/11, that’s less than 0.001% of your population, and you invaded another country over that.

Now, I don’t often get angry at idiots on the internet, but I expect more for people on this site so In being polite I would ask you to kindly piss off with your pathetic attempt at judgment from your safe little life. You have no fucking clue what you are talking about.

Re: @Maharg

Why are you paying for Virgin TV if you don’t have a TV? It can’t be cheaper than getting a phone line and internet connection from somewhere else?

Nip down to a British heart foundation charity shop, if you don’t mind the fact its not flat screen you can pick up a decent TV for about £20, then you can watch the TV and have donated some money to a good cause at the same time. Win Win.


Re: how to watch the Daily Show int he UK

Don’t own a TV? Well, then you can’t really complain about not being able to watch a particular TV show can you?

Stuff is not free, you buy a TV, pay the licence, get Sky, Virgin, whatever, pay for that, and you can watch the TV show, if you don’t want to pay for these things then you don’t get the end result, its pretty simple, the Daily Show is not free to make, it’s not a hobby, it’s not a right, people have to make money from it to have the incentive to show it on their channel.

The BBC can show TV programs on the interwebs because they get the money anyway, Channel 4 limits what it shows and advertises the balls out of it, and ITV, well, I don’t think I have watched anything other than football on ITV so god knows what they do.

You want something, more often than not you have to pay for it.

I don’t own a Playstaion or an Xbox, yet I don’t complain about not being able to play Grand Theft Auto 5.


Re: how to watch the Daily Show int he UK

Step 1 Turn on the TV

Step 2 Go to the channel 128 on Sky, or 182 on Virgin

Step 3 notice its called Comedy Central Extra, make a note of that.

Step 4 Watch the Daily show at either 11pm or repeated at 3am

Step 5 Enjoy

Step 6 (optional) Set up a series link so you can watch it in your own time.

United Nations launches fleet of surveillance drone patrols


Drones are good, M'kay?

UAV’s have their uses and place in both recon and battle deployment, as stated before (on another thread) it makes no difference to someone if they get blown up by a ground attack aircraft a few miles away, from missile launched from a ship hundreds of miles away or by a drone a few hundred feet above them being controlled by someone in another country, and while people try and argue it takes the human element away or such nonsense (because someone watching a screen and pressing a button in a helicopter or a ship is more empathetic than someone watching a screen pressing a button in a bunker?) it’s like arguing artillery is ‘unfair’.

The main difference with a drone, apart from the operator is in a better position to judge the target to be correct and there is less time for the situation to change between the time it takes to press the button and the target to be hit, if it gets shot down it just costs money, not the life of the operator.The people the UAVs target will get killed one way or another, the ‘drone’ is just in place of a more expensive and less ‘controlled’ way of killing them.

In my mind the value of a life outweighs the cost of a UAV, it also hardly compares to the cost of a life, in terms of supplies, training, transport etc etc, using drones for the purposes the UN state not only make it cheaper and easier to carry out these observation tasks, but it also doesn’t put the person controlling it in anything like the danger faced by a guy in a helicopter or boots on the ground.

@ Billy > As for the worry they will be used in UN countries, can you point out the difference between a CCTVs on the side of buildings and in helicopters then in a UAV? Big Brother is already watching, The first thing that springs to mind is that if a Police drone crashed into that pub in Scotland, there would have been at least two less deaths.

Women crap at parking: Official


correlation and fish

“It tells us why, almost always, when men and women are in a car together, the man drives”

“80 per cent of crashes that killed or seriously injured pedestrians involved male drivers”

So, article tells us that more men drive compared to women, and most car crash have male drivers, any correlation here?

I wonder how many car crashes are caused by human drivers compared to fish drivers, I think you will find it proves that fish are safer drivers then people.

• Note, her indoors is actually a better driver then I am, mostly because her indoors is not actually indoors but spends a great deal of time behind the wheel of a car due to work, while I get the train.


Re: ..."a whopping 80 per cent of crashes... @Squander Two

I think what he means is that, from experience and what is said in this article, men are more likely to be doing the ‘big drives’ so while a women driver in a year could have a bump on the school run, back into a wall while parking or take out a wing mirror in a car park by not paying attention to her surroundings, her husband is more likely to flip the car at 70mph after clipping someone else.

The husband might be a better driver, but as the amount of mile covered goes up, and the average speed increases, the same mistake made by the wife 3 times only needs to be made once by the husband for a major accident.

Apple dodges data privacy sueball: Fanbois didn't RTFM*, says judge


Re: Nobody is expected to read it

Text from the ruling

“Critically, none of the plaintiffs presents evidence that he or she even saw, let alone read and relied upon, the alleged misrepresentations contained in the Apple Privacy Policies, SLAs [Software License Agreements], or App Store Terms and Conditions, either prior to purchasing his or her iPhone, or at any time thereafter,” [..]

[..] “Plaintiffs each allude to a vague ‘understanding’ regarding Apple’s privacy policies without providing any evidence whatsoever concerning the basis for this understanding,” the 30-page judgment states. “But a vague ‘understanding’ about Apple’s privacy policies is not enough. To survive summary judgment, plaintiffs are required to set forth ‘specific facts’ in support of standing.” [..]

[..] But without “some evidence that [plaintiffs] saw one or more of Apple’s alleged misrepresentations, that they actually relied on those misrepresentaions, and that they were harmed thereby,” the plaintiffs have no case,”

Or in other words, you cant sue a company for breaching an agreement if you dont actully know what is in the agreement and are just ‘guessing’

PS4 with Black Friday underway: TOUGH, you CAN'T HAVE ONE!


Re: Sadly...

I borrowed from a company like Wonga (I won’t say the name as I don’t want to be accused of being a ‘shrill’) once, back in my students days as I needed to get over to Ireland for a funeral and wouldn’t have been paid in time, I borrowed £200, after 5 days (the 4th day being the day I got paid) I paid them £215, to me £15 didn’t seem that much of a cost to have £200 in my account early and allow me to get the flight, in fact it was half the charge I would had received in overdraft fees from my bank, regardless of it being £2, £20 or £200.

As I said I only used them once, but these loans are supposed to be one off short term jobs, if you have to borrow £350 and can’t pay over the best part of a month, chances are you shouldn’t be getting the loan in the first place, let alone a new games console, but if it wasn’t for them I would have been stuck and rather than any mismanaging of my finances (as little as they were at the time) as I was easily able to pay for it, it was a question of timing.

Once again it comes down to having a level of responsibility; a £15 charge in my opinion is pretty good for the service, but there is no way I would use, or advise others to use a company like that for anything more than a couple of days.

The companies tell you how much they will charge, you agree when they will take the money out, they tell you what happens if you can’t pay, they even had contact information for free debt advice, if someone ignores all of that and still takes out a loan they know they cannot afford and have no intention of being able to pay it without another loan, then that is not the companies fault it is theirs.

Better to educate people in how to manage their money they ban services that others (like in my case) are able to use without any issues and for a valid reason

Re: why prostitute murder

>>>In my (admittedly limited) experience of under-15s playing GTA, they will quickly abandon the story missions in order to rampage about and obliterate the civilians<<<

Did you notice the big sticker on the front of the box that’s says “suitable for over 18s only”?

Not saying that I don’t go on rampages of mayhem, but people can’t complain about the content of an age restricted product that they willingly supply to those under that age. It’s like saying we should ban whiskey, because I bought a couple of bottles of whiskey for a 12 year old girl and was shocked at the effects it had on her


Re: Question: @ForthisNotDead

In GTA you can murder anyone you want, you don’t have to, I have competed the game only killing ‘the bad guys’ but prostitutes exist in the game just like in real life, the ‘murdering prostitutes’ line is, as pointed out, Daily Fail scaremongering,

They could have said (off the top of my head from playing these games)

farmers, bankers, taxi drivers, bus drivers, old people, cops, FBI agents, gang members, homeless people, Communists, Fire brand preachers, Krishna’s, firemen, doctors, fat people, drug dealers, hairdressers, guys playing pool, lifeguards, Triad leaders, Mafia Dons, Yakuza hitmen, gun store owners, people who work in casinos, ice-cream men, security guards, shop workers, people in nightclubs, DJs, lawyers, Rap artists, helicopter pilots, Biker gang members, US Army personal, corrupt politicians, actors, drug addicts, construction workers, hotel clerks, car parking attendants, people who work in bars, abusive husbands, muggers, pimps , White, Black, Asians, British, Cuban, Jamaican, African, Eastern European, Russian, Chinese, Pakistani, or Indian people, but they chose to say prostitutes.

Why do you think that is?

The game is not suitable for children, that’s why it says so on the front of the game I wouldn’t let a young child play GTA any more than I would let them watch Scarface, read a Stephen King novel, smoke a cigar, drive a car or do shots of Vodka, I however being more than 18 years old am the target audience and who the game is designed for, you child can play games that are aimed at them, World of War Craft being one of the games mentioned is rated for teenagers, a bit like a 12A film, again, I wouldn’t let a young child play it, but for a 13 (and 23, 33, 43 etc) year old it’s a good way to develop the skills mentioned in the article, at the same time being entertaining and engrossing.

In the end the secret evil government is a tangible entity they can identify and mistrust, but one guy with a gun, military training and a different view on the world? That’s scary.

Undercover BBC man exposes Amazon worker drone's daily 11-mile trek


Re: Easy Target

I don’t have problems with allocating time to achieve a task, it makes sense, but down to a number of seconds over a number of hours seems a bit much, I mean, can you imagine having to say to your partner “I didn’t get full pay because I missed my target today, I sneezed and then blew my nose at 14:34 and that put me out by 6.7 seconds”


Pretty sure that’s the way they do things in Argos, Tescos, and other places they have huge warehouses, the problem with being ‘timed’ to achieve a task, in this case down to the second, is it does put stress on anyone, you can work it out and say its only 40 yards a minute, but you forgetting the few seconds it takes to find item, scan item, place item on trolley and check next item, (I’m assume they don’t return after collecting each item and basically fill the trolley before returning?) while this might only take say 10 seconds, that’s still 1/3 of your allocated time, and not all items will only be 40 yards away in a straight line.

Of course you have to make sure that the d̶r̶o̶n̶e̶s̶ workers are not slacking, but maybe a bonus for doing over a target instead of a counting clock would be better, otherwise spending 2 seconds more looking for a small item in a shelve full of identical items impacts the time for each item for the rest of your day.

I know from a friend who used to drop off the deliveries for a large British supermarket (the green one) that these where allocated a time down to the minute as well, which was even more unrealistic as each day there would be someone who had parked their car in a way so his van couldn’t get past, or an accident, or road works, or anything else that could affect the time that of course cannot be factored by a computer, they had something like 4 minutes given for ‘customer interaction’ which was the dropping off of the load, the checking, the signing, etc, but you could spend that much waiting for the door to be answered, avoiding a dog, finding the correct house or helping an elderly or disabled person take the shopping into the kitchen and unpacking it for them (if you were nice that is), that’s if the customer was in at all.

Needless to say apparently few of the other vans accumulated scraps, bumps and even speeding tickets to meet the demands

It just doesn’t exist, the Daily Mail, David Cameron and others who have such a vast knowledge on how the internet works have won, there is now no need for the filter/censorship of the internet that the Daily Mail, David Cameron and others who have such a vast knowledge on how the internet works also want to introduce to prevent such evil websites as the those to help with safe sex, drink, drug and relationship abuse, as well as internet chat forums, as they have solved the problem, anything else will be a waste of time and money, and in this time of austerity we should focus on more important things.

Please can everyone explain this to their local MP to ensure we do not waste resources on something that the problem no longer exists.

>>You are aware that you can't really trade in a £10 note for ten pounds of gold<<

Yes that’s why I said (quote) “in the UK it used to be”

It was a simplification, I could have reeled out the history of sterling, how where made of silver in Tudor times, the pound weight of 60 or so silver pennies, how by the 1700s they represented Gold, as we ran out of silver, the introduction of the gold sovereign, and then doing away with the gold standard under Lloyd George etc etc, but the post seemed long enough already.

So I didn’t.

But that you for the taking the time to reply
