Posted in: Samsung starts mass production of most advanced 14nm DRAM See in context

Japan needs to engineer another epoxy resin fire like the one they had way back in '93. That stuffed up RAM production good and proper. Maybe use the break to catch up?

I recommend everyone to ditch the gas guzzling cars and busses and cycle.

As the owner of a touring bicycle, Lycra shorts, and talcum-powdered posterior that goes with them, even I will say that cycling has its limits. Unless the topography is relatively flat, and the commute relatively short, cycling is not realistic. And what about the weather? Oh, sure, I can deal with a little rain, but do you have showers in the office for those scorching summer mornings?

Something is very off with this story, especially, where was the elder sister while all of this was happening? The younger sister claimed she was investigating a quarrel and reported seeing a (one) man. So who was he quarreling with? The elder sister?

The po-pos should be grilling the sisters about this one, IMHO.

Will this make for one of those “special interest” movies a la Flesh Gordon and Battle Star Galactirooster?

The Franco-German axis do this all the time, so I do not really understand your point.

TFOA. Things Falling Off Aircraft. Yes, that's a real acronym. I submitted several such official reports during my military experience. You might be surprised to learn that it does happen. Things break. UHF/VHF antennae can snap off in turns and other maneuvers. And, yes, occasionally even canopies pop off. Probably there was a failure of the latching mechanism.

Yes. I think that made the news - it was called the DC-10. Do McDonnell Douglas assemble the F-2?

Pretty sure that they planned to sell the rice and booze.

Absolutely. That they stole several nice, distributable, smaller bags of rice than the jumbo 30 kilo one really points in that direction.

Raducanu now needs to decide whether she is a tennis player who happens to be pretty, or a pretty young woman who happens to play tennis.

Posted in: Man arrested for fatally abusing 2-month-old son See in context

You cannot “discipline” a two month old child - infants do not really “switch on” until around the four month mark. Even then they will not understand why you are getting excited for many more months to come.

Still, the mother shoulders some of the blame. All the girls like a bad boy until something like that happens. Ladies, do your due diligence.

Posted in: Mother arrested over murder of 21-year-old disabled daughter See in context

This woman is, in all likelihood, still distraught over the death of her husband. A severely disabled daughter, through no fault of her own, would never understand that her mother needed space to grieve. Even the most giving of us will become embittered and resentful when our own needs are incessantly subordinated and suffocated. It does not matter how worthy the sacrifice is: one day you will just snap.

Posted in: California makes it illegal to remove condom without consent See in context

It's O.K., it just adds the necessary first step of once you get to the house, or hotel room, or beach is to obtain consent to an audio recording of the lovemaking.

No, no. She could be faking it.

Posted in: California makes it illegal to remove condom without consent See in context

Anyway, the sex education (or lack thereof) in Japan is pretty amazing.

Is this information anecdotal, or is it your professional opinion as talent scout and taster?

If the latter, I would suggest either settling on a woman who takes the pill, or getting the snip. one Boris Johnson is enough.

Posted in: California makes it illegal to remove condom without consent See in context

Thinking about it, should there not be implications for women who themselves lie about contraception? If I consent to sex with a woman in the mistaken belief that she is using birth control - a belief encouraged by her deception - can she not be prosecuted if she falls pregnant?

If not, why not?

Posted in: California makes it illegal to remove condom without consent See in context

It is ging to be interesting to see how one can prove verbal consent or lack of one!

Or indeed if a condom was used / removed at all.

Actually, it will be a slam-dunk for the courts to prove that the law has been broken: as a man you will need to demonstrate that you obtained consent and that a condom was used from the moment you got wood all the way until the cigarettes were lit.

Can't do that? Go to jail, you sex fiend.

Once the PO gets fully privatized, expect post offices to close down faster than a bordello outside a nunnery. Within a few years, they will only exist as a small concession within AEON mall. Don't believe me? They already have you print your own package manifest and invoice.

Posted in: Farmer referred to prosecutors for killing protected crane See in context

Man kills what he appears to know is a protected species and calls the police on himself. 

I think this man has a problem grasping that actions have consequences - he probably thought he’d file a report and that would be it. I doubt he was expecting to be indicted.

Prof Sacko has obviously never heard of the Open University.

He is, however, correct in that the social aspect of attending classes in person can be a great motivator, and for students and staff alike.
