Not enough, apparently.

It’s not just the 1.2 million people on the database that should be worried, it’s all their blood relatives also who can be implicated by a partial DNA match.

If they are as noisy as helicopters, then I hope they don’t start flying in great numbers near me.

I think hand-drawing will eventually die out... I just hope we can then preserve them.

I think hand-drawn will always be valued more highly than anything largely the product of a computer.

The next UK PM needs to be someone very wise, but not in it for themselves. I vote for Bran Stark.

Posted in: 'Game of Thrones' reaches its end, with one or two shocks left See in context

Was that a subtle advocation of Scottish independence, or was I reading too much into the story about the Northern Kingdom?

No matter, the bit I enjoyed most was the in-joke about the Song of Ice and Fire book.

Posted in: New laws of robotics needed to tackle AI: expert See in context

If we have drones flying about the place that are autonomous, cars that are autonomous, bots online that are speaking on Twitter or in finance trading stocks, all of those have to be attributed to a person

But autonomous cars cannot be attributed to a person, otherwise they’re not autonomous, surely?

Posted in: New service will tell your boss to 'Take this job and shove it' -- for a price See in context

When I was made redundant, my boss didn’t tell me, but some HR low-life. So I quite sympathise with employees using this new service to resign.

Posted in: ALFA-X bullet train See in context

UK’s HS2 top speed 362 km/h (225 mph). 2 km/h faster than Alfa-X.

According to the plans, and if it ever gets built.

Posted in: ALFA-X bullet train See in context

Designed to reduce the ‘thump’ when it enters tunnels. Hope the extra speed will make the Tokyo to central Sapporo journey (from 2030) as quick as by plane.

Posted in: Grounded Max jets could contribute to higher summer fares See in context

200 fewer daily flights than planned through the heart of the peak summer season

If that means less CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere, then at least there’s an upside.

Posted in: Do 'mechanical trees' offer the cure for climate change? See in context

The companies compress the high-concentration CO2 they capture and then can sell it for use in industrial applications, including making drinks fizzy

Well that’s a BIG help. Not. One Burp and it’s back in the atmosphere!

It does indeed look like Monkey D Luffy’s hat.

You may board a Mickey Mouse train, but with the Shinkansen’s safety record you’ll definitely arrive in One Piece.
