Can't even sign into AT&T to view/report the outage. You can (conveniently enough) sign in to pay your bill if you want. AFAIK, the 70k number is the number of reports at Downdetector. It's probably 100s of thousands affected, if not millions.

Chewie's head on a robot spider-body would be bitchin', but didn't they already do that with Darth Maul in Clone Wars? or did I dream that up?

Now, Chewie's head floating in an armored bacta tank on top of a massive Gort-like body would be pretty cool.

Perhaps they should have read immanuel on how to concoct propaganda.

In a year or ten hence, the people that voted against this will turn their taps and get nothing but brown sludge, then howl "why isn't the government doing something about this?!?!?"

Currently rewatching. He's still in Seattle and just got his job back after months of not working and not changing his lifestyle in the slightest. He must not really need the job all that much.

"Gonna fix it up. Pinstripe exterior, a 4-barrel carb. Maybe a Grumman 817 inertial guidance, electronic countermeasures. And when I save a little money, a classic Raytheon X-193 class 2 half-megaton warhead. Then I can show it off at the meetup on weekends."

From what I've seen dumb TVs are usually a few hundred more than a smart TV with similar specs. In fact, I've looked in the big box stores near me and can't even find dumb TVs. Even the crappy 32-inch 720p $200 Hisense is a smart TV.

I always thought of the Culture as the Federation, but super-hardcore. In the Culture, individuals can just upload their mind to a new, undamaged body if they're sufficiently injured that repair isn't an option. Even just popping the head off is enough to revive someone if they don't have a backup and can catch it in time. If the repairs will take a while, they can drop into a simulated reality to do something else while they wait. Some individuals get tired of living and decide to just end it -- no backup. Others get tired of living and have themselves warehoused until something interesting happens somewhere down the line.

But if they made Trek like that, I don't think 80's television audiences could have handled it. I'm not certain 21st century TV audiences are ready for that.

I wouldn't buy another piece of Motorola/Lenovo garbage for any amount of money.

I seem to recall high end watches being a way to avoid carrying large amounts of cash across borders. Maybe even for money laundering (although that seems cumbersome).

People can carry tens or hundreds of thousands across borders in their luggage as personal wardrobe accessories. Once they arrive at their destination, find a dealer who will buy a watch for cash and they have loads of local currency without paying bank transaction fees or getting government haircuts.

Not that I think that's what's going on here, but it may be the media shining a spotlight on it for some reason.

Paula Vennells: didn’t realise she was evil until the ITV drama

Paula Vennells has announced that she will return her CBE after finally realising she is evil. Surprisingly she had not comprehended the carnage her actions had wrought on hundreds of innocent sub-postmasters until ITV made a drama about it. The court cases were just not as convincing.

It's a Rotating Detonation Rocket Engine"

What makes the RDRE so revolutionary is that it makes use of a sustained detonation circling around a ring-shaped channel, fed by a mix of fuel and oxygen which is ignited by each passing explosion.
Crucially, the RDRE uses less propellant fuel than conventional rocket engines, and is simpler in terms of its machinery and mechanisms. That means going into space becomes cheaper, and traveling further distances becomes possible.

Fringe ended weird though. I chalk it up to JJ Abrams getting bored (yet again) with his wildly successful project and letting it sputter to an end instead of letting it go out with a bang.

tl;dr: “Listen to your body. If you see things like blood, if you feel pain in unusual places in your abdomen, your body, tell your family. Talk to your doctor. Have the examination.”
