turkeyfeathers A reflection on Sweden (99 comments)

Remember when the only famous Swedes were sex symbols like Anita Ekberg and Ann Margret, instead of alleged criminals like the current bunch? I miss the good old days.

I tried eating a tulip bulb once (thought it was a garlic bulb) and I can say that its intrinsic value isn't too high.

Similar questions to yours appear here regularly. The consensus is that it's best just to throw the bills and documents out and spend more time watching porn.

Researcher Evan Booth: How To Weaponize Tax-Free Airport Goods

turkeyfeathers Re:Ruining it for everyone (288 comments)

The replacement clippers you bought in the shop were made of approved inert metal. The ones you tried to smuggle on the aircraft could well have been made of plutonium. You and a few of your terrorist buddies put your plutonium nail clippers together and... BOOM! So you see, the policy was effective. Now please report to Guantanamo Bay.

Korea Tensions Lead To Delay Of Minuteman III Test Flight

turkeyfeathers Re:Why do yu need a new intercont missile ??? (256 comments)

WebKit Developers Discuss Removal of Google-Specific Code

turkeyfeathers Good luck with that (92 comments)

Google's posted a half-hour video explaining how the transition will work? They're crazy if they think any regular user is going to spend a half hour learning how to use a new browser... just make it work like the old one or don't expect people to use it.

turkeyfeathers (843622) writes "As we are all aware, Steve Jobs died in October from repeated mental and physical fatigue. Today our hearts are lifted as he has been awarded a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award ("Grammy") for lifetime achievements in the field of music. He was possessed of personality and qualifications as a great man in the highest and perfect level, was an outstanding thinker and theoretician who led the revolution and construction along the path of steady victories with his profound ideologies and theories and remarkable leadership."
