Re: Google: Fighting terror with "Spell-Check"

So autocorrupt is going to say, "You typed 'Semtex'. Are you sure you didn't mean 'Tampax'?"

It's only dirty if you vote for yourself a few times in the same election, I understand. :tea:

Re: I feel dirty

I feel dirty voting for any of the fuckers. But I always do. Even though the result in my constituency is a foregone conclusion. A lot of people died to get me the vote. It would be churlish not to.

Re: Why is there something, rather than nothing ?

Every particle has an antiparticle. A photon has an antiphoton. etc. You chose a really bad example! A photon has neither charge nor mass and has no antiparticle! Had you said electron, quark, or neutrino, you would have been correct. Of course, you need to put the particles in one place and the an...

Here's one. If we take a defined space and empty it of everything, all matter, all particles and radiation etc... Let me stop you there. How the fuck do you do that? Short answer, you can't. There is no such space and, with our current skill set, there is not going to be one in the foreseeable futu...

Re: Why didn't animals evolve wheels?

Because there was need. They are very good at being sharks. They'd be better sharks with big brains and arms, after all that's what we have, and we're better than sharks...Oh, and dolphins too. There's a trade-off. A bigger brain requires a bigger, heavier skull; longer developmental time (ie. lear...

Re: Why is there something, rather than nothing ?

If there was nothing but nothing, there would be no one to notice. It's a question that can only be asked if there's something and, in all probability, once there are things that can ask questions, it inevitably is!

The answer is obvious...

Not if it costs one fucking penny of tax! And especially as sending a patient away with the instruction to eat one sugarlump a day would be equally effective! Free placebos are the best placebos. :tea:

Typical hate speech :this: Contrary to FUA. But nothing will be done about it. There's no proof that Muhammad fucked camels What fucking FUA? ...
