If you want safety and a guarantee, buy a washing machine.

Actually, there's not.

nospam007 Re:Feet? (19 comments)

"I'm not an engineer and probably not qualified for saying this. But it seems like it has plain(straight) feet. Doesn't that make it harder to walk?"

Personally I have no problems walking with straight plain feet. I almost never fall over.

Now it doesn't seem to have been such a good idea to put all those reactors on the border of the country, where people can cross over without presenting any papers. (Schengen)
For lots of them, drones can be easily operated from neighboring countries.

Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

nospam007 Freedom (893 comments)

The German satire magazine Titanic used a frontpage with an image of the pope with a giant piss stain on his white skirt.
He was not amused.

_That_ was the time to demonstrate support for freedom of expression, but instead he let justice forbid further sales.

The Importance of Deleting Old Stuff

nospam007 Re:Always delete (177 comments)

"This is why I kept telling people to delete emails. Don't save everything, get rid of it. Set Outlook to auto delete on exit and don't give people the option to delete."

Exactly! There is no philosophical wisdom in there that could benefit mankind.
Only dickpics.

"My company deletes emails after 90 days unless you jump through burning hoops to save a limited number of them. And has IM logging forced to disabled. This REALLY sucks when you want to go back to refer to something. "

Is sending a BCC to a personal account and a filter to forward incoming mails to the same account also forbidden?

Sex tax machine

nospam007 nospam007 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

nospam007 (722110) writes "You may complain about the machines that tax your parking, but recently, a computerized machine that's not yet arrived in the United States, is now deployed in the German city of Bonn.
'Prostitution is a legal and taxable trade in Germany, but enforcing taxes among sex workers on the street can be problematic. The city of Bonn has come up with a new solution, though. Prostitutes must now pay a nightly tax to automated ticket machines.'"

Copyrighted tattoo next?

nospam007 nospam007 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

nospam007 (722110) writes "Hide your ink. Apparently you have to be careful what you decide to have permanently etched on your body.
In “The Hangover Part II,” the sequel to the very successful what-happened-last-night comedy, the character played by Ed Helms wakes up with a permanent tattoo bracketing his left eye. The Maori-inspired design is instantly recognizable as the one sported by the boxer Mike Tyson, which is part of the joke. But S. Victor Whitmill, a tattoo artist formerly of Las Vegas and currently from rural Missouri, doesn’t quite see the humor. Mr. Whitmill designed the tattoo for Mr. Tyson, called it “tribal tattoo,” and claims it as a copyrighted work."

In-flight surveillance could foil terrorists

nospam007 nospam007 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

nospam007 (722110) writes "CCTV cameras are bringing more and more public places under surveillance — and passenger aircraft could be next. In-flight surveillance could foil terrorists in the sky A prototype European system uses multiple cameras and "Big Brother" software to try and automatically detect terrorists or other dangers caused by passengers. The European Union's Security of Aircraft in the Future European Environment (SAFEE) project uses a camera in every passenger's seat, with six wide-angle cameras to survey the aisles. Software then analyses the footage to detect developing terrorist activity or "air-rage" incidents, by tracking passengers' facial expressions. The system performed well in tests this January that simulated terrorist and unruly passenger behaviour scenarios in a fake Airbus A380 fuselage, say the researchers that built it. Systems to analyse CCTV footage — for example, to detect violence (with video) or alert CCTV operators to unusual events — have been designed before.
