If they could prove that black holes emit Hawking radiation, that would be interesting. Regrettably it would be too tardy for the late physicist to get the Nobel prize.

So when GRR Martin brings our the last two books, David Benioff and Dan Weiss could sue him for copying their plot details!

Tape still the cheapest way for DATA backup.

when the mirror is used as a washstand mirror of a bathroom in the office, it becomes easier to manage the physical conditions of each employee

So they’re spying on me taking a leak? Jeez.

And this is in spite of Brexit. I wonder what WTO tariffs will be on beer exported to the EU in the event of a no-deal. Presumably 'small beer' to the lovers of London Pride.
