First line of the article:
There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of children women are having, say researchers. BBC
Why not say “There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of babies being born, say researchers.” or would that upset some super fragile snowflake somewhere?
Meanwhile, the BBC declined to give a figure on the number of complaints it has received about Top Gear being pulled from the schedules due to the ongoing investigation.
And yet the BBC are all too keen to say at other times that they answer to the
TV Tax license payers when someone says anything that offends even a single person.
The BBC are a joke.
It’s Comic Relief night.

ctrl-f for ‘privacy’
I’ll save you the effort.
It’s not there.
Do the same for ’security’ – it’s there once.
And now, post-Snowden, search for ‘encryption’
Still, it’s very shiny.
“It is important for Hershey to protect its trademark rights and to prevent consumers from being confused or misled when they see a product name or product package that is confusingly similar to a Hershey name or trade dress,” Beckman said.
“Hershey has always vigorously protected its brands and will continue to do so whenever we believe that others have infringed on these valuable intellectual assets.”
said the Hershey mouth when asked why they were claiming that England’s Yorkie chocolate bars should also be forbidden, because they are too similar in name to Hershey’s York Peppermint Patties, even though they have different packaging and a different shape, the lawsuit says. DNAInfo
Maybe it’s just me, but I would never ever confuse these.

Fry announced his Twitter retirement
Stephen Fry quits Twitter as it is ‘unsafe’ for him to tweet
so it’s just a break then.
Get a fucking grip.
Is twitter really that important?
He told Evan Davis: “I don’t want to look at a graph, mate. I ain’t got time for a bloody graph… This is the kind of stuff that people like you use to confuse people like us.”
So Russell Brand is too stupid to understand a graph? Or does he just act like a window-licker to try and garner votes for the “revolution”?
Nope. The simple fact is that this guy is a phag*.
Believe him and you need locking up as well.
The cycling club I’m in has an active facebook page. So I thought what the hell, join fb just to be able to post there. Did the registration and used my name at this domain as the email. The confirmation email did not come through. Tried a few times, nothing. Changed it to my live.com email – again nothing. So requested to join the cycling club page, added 2 friends, contacted Support about it and left it at that. This morning – neither of those emails work – fb say they have no record of those emails. So facebook have looked at my details, somehow determined I am a spammer and shut me down. That’s sort of amusing and pretty annoying. But I won’t be trying again.
My fake ID still works perfectly and STILL gets weekly or more emails from facebook asking if I know these girls.
In any post, email, forum, comment, support request or other communication:
This is not a question. It’s filler, garbage, useless, vague, pointless, nonsense.
If you want information ask for it.
BBC News – Clint Eastwood endorses Mitt Romney for president.
I didn’t realise just how utterly stupid Clint Eastwood was but I do now.
I’m sure since the last OS X Lion Service Pack (I forget what the slick Apple term is for “here’s a shedload more code to fix stuff” is) that the kernel_task process just takes off on it’s own. 40% CPU? 800mb RAM? Sure, help yourself. It must be very important it’s job whatever it is otherwise Apple wouldn’t let it work this way would they? Between it and mdworker it’s amazing that anything else runs. It is supremely annoying to have other processes judder to a halt because of this.
