Re: Sigh

"I just spent a meal trying to define what a "pudding" was to a French colleague = a Yorkshire pudding is a pudding, and a blood sausage is a pudding and a chocolate cake is a pudding?"

Blood sausage is pudding

Chocolate cake is a cake, or dessert

I realise that in the UK, 'pudding' is the term for 'dessert'...


Re: Find a new joke

" he complained about how unfair it was that its not a jury trial.... when he turned down the offer of a jury trial in the first place......"

He didn't turn down the option of trial by jury, his stupid lawyers (you get the lawyers you deserve?) forgot to tick the 'trial by jury' box


Re: The amount of Anonymous Trumpists in this forum...

Yeah, what is that whole 'Electoral College' thing about anyway?


"Trump is crass, vulgar and makes stuff up on the spot (and then claims he was only joking) but he's clearly got his marbles still."


he thought he ran against Obama “with Obama, we won an election that everyone said couldn’t be won.”

he thought Biden would lead USA into WW2 “we would be in World War II very quickly if we’re going to be relying on” Biden.

he confused Niki Haley with Nancy Pelosi, with regard to security on Jan 6th “Nikki Haley, you know they, do you know they destroyed all of the information, all of the evidence, everything, deleted and destroyed all of it. All of it, because of lots of things like Nikki Haley is in charge of security. We offered her 10,000 people, soldiers, National Guard, whatever they want. They turned it down. They don’t want to talk about that. These are very dishonest people,”

he thought E Jean Carrol was his dead ex-wife, when in court, he was shown a photo of him, his second wife, E Jean Carrol and her husband

Re: Hyperbole

also the solar roof tiles scam

Crypto-crook Sam Bankman-Fried spared a second trial


Re: Why not do it later?

The sentences will run concurrently - not one after the other (sequentially?)


But isn't it because the USA is a Third World country? Well, according to the MAGA headjobs at any rate...

They need to be rounded up & sent to an actual Third World country and see what that actually entails


Running concurrently? Boo!

Elon is the bakery owner swearing in the street about Yelp critics canceling him


'On-the-spectrum' boy is gonna on-the-spectrum

Re: 7,000 lbs?

That place is a nuthouse

Tesla says California's Autopilot action violates its free speech rights


Re: Has Elon ever considered...

He's certainly madder than Mad Jack McMad, last years winner!


Re: Volkswagen should have had these brilliant lawyers in 2015

Plenty of vids where those 'sovereign citizen' dicks get a sharp dose of reality

China's SpaceX wannabe recycles a rocket after just 38 days


They should've called the company XSpace to troll Space Karen...

Wasn't Space Karen saying they were going to have 24hr turnaround? Oh wait, that was just more Muskian BS...

Tesla goons will buy anything – including these $150 beers


Re: 'alpha'

Musk isn't even a beta male

I too depise the whole 'alpha male' thing. Such a Yank term

Everything that comes out of Musk's mouth is just plain old bollocks.

One person that made cash on the whole thing was the one I heard was charging €50 to take people to the nearest ATM!




Man who nearly killed physical media returns with $60,000 vinyl turntable


Don't forget to seperate the floor that the turntable rests on from the rest of the house, with its own foundation!

Also, what about the power cables that feed supply to the house itself...?

Factor in the age of the listener, and the fact that your ability to hear top end frequency decreases with age

Audiophile hifi is a perfect example of the law of diminishing returns, if ever there was one.

Bad times are just starting for India's IT outsourcers, says JP Morgan


From my experience, replacing the Indian outsourced Helpdesks with ChatGPT would be an improvement

Biden proposes 30% tax on cryptominers' power bills


Re: Snake Oil

Tesla hits the brakes on rollout of Full Self-Driving code to new users


I would love to blindfold Musk, tie his hands & feet so he can't reach the peddles/steering wheel, and pop him into on of his Teslas on FSD - minus a seatbelt, then set it off driving till it runs out of juice, or crashes - whichever comes first...

Bitcoin mining rig found stashed in school crawlspace


Kill em all! (crypto miners that is)

Yukon UFO could have cost unfortunate balloon fan $12


You'd think they could've used cannons instead of an AA missile to pop the balloon - or do modern fighters still have pew pew guns on them?


Re: @Yet Another Anonymous coward - NIBBB

First created in Ireland, whiskey if it is produced in Ireland, whisky if produced anywhere else.

(although the Yanks may spell their stuff whiskey, as they aren't too concerned about naming conventions - see their use of the word champagne for the sparkly wine they produce)

America's nuclear fusion 'breakthrough' is super-hot ... yet far from practical


There's a bloody big fusion reactor 1AU away - all that's needed to harness its energy are solar panels & some battery storage.

Concentrate on micro-generation rather than large scale power generation

Twitter set for more layoffs as Musk mulls next move


Re: the end game emerges...

Funny, I replied to a tweet to describe Musk using one word, and I used the word C U Next Tuesday, and didn't get banned...

A success if you count taxis driving slowly in a narrow tunnel I suppose
