It wouldn't be the first reverse acquisition Apple have done. They bought out NeXT almost purely to get Jobs back in charge (though NeXTStep did make a really good starting point for OS X, and later on MacOS).
Disney also did something of a reverse acquisition when they purchased Pixar (also a Steve Jobs company). Rather than just being swamped into the existing Disney pipelines, Pixar creatives and board took over pretty much all of Disney animation. I think that almost all of those key people have since retired, though - hence the drop off in quality that's happened.
Is that God fulfilling a prayer, or not? It's Schrodinger's prayer answering.
Hmmm, is it the after-church crowd?
I thought that was the name of a rapidly aging roastie.
Oh, wait, that's Rapidly Losing Eggs.
Boxing match. If you recall, Bono lost a fight with his bike and the street.
Maybe Conor could redeem his persona.
Yeah, but Baltimore belonged to her family. And so does California at the moment.
Hillary only had Arkansas. And had to be parachuted into New York and Sec State.
Hmmm... I wonder who has more nasty people at their beck and call.
Ha. A lot of the tech in the actual space based telescopes WAS spy sat tech. A lot of Keyhole optics made their way into JWST, and Hubble definitely benefited from the existing optical spy sats.
I vaguely remember an old(ish) saying:
"Under American Capitalism, the common man thinks he is a temporarily embarrassed millionaire.
Under Russian Communism, the common man thinks he is a temporarily embarrassed member of the Politburo."
Are we talking about Pelosi or Hillary there?
You could argue that Click examines the same sort of moral journey and the cost of constant gratification.
Don't forget the West Coast Spur line so AOC can take the train to Hawaii
Da fuck? You ate so much turkey it's rotted your brain.
The Irish Republic has not been a part of the UK since they gained independence. This attack and subsequent bullshit happened in the Irish REPUBLIC. They are their own sovereign nation.
Yeah. It's often said that Civil Wars are neither.
Politics - Saying nice doggy until you can find a big enough stick.
No. Some are Marxist worshipping communists.
L'esprit de l'escalier.
Literally, staircase wit. When you think of a witty comeback long after leaving the conversation.
No true paddy?
The term Balkanisation doesn't mean anything?
And I don't think the Resistance and the Provos are the same fucking thing.
Good ol' Ned. An Irish troublemaker who terrorised a moderate part of Victoria and border country NSW and became a national hero for doing so.
But then we also lionise other bushrangers like Captain Moonlight and so on and so forth.
I was going to comment long those lines. As scary as the Saxons are, I'm more concerned about the Teutons. And a new Charles Martel.
Not afraid of them. Concerned as to what the powers that be will do to them when they arise.
It's the JPEG version of multiple brain aneurysms?
I'd agree with that.
I get the feeling that the Republic was content to settle down and keep quiet for a bit following their independence, but then the Provos came along and kept twisting the knife against the North. And to fund that, they got into bed with some reprehensible people (and were die hard Marxists for their political wing).
I feel that that was probably the open door through which the Republic has now met its own fate.
Bono is the most insufferable person to have fallen ass-first into fame.
He thinks that it means he can spruik whatever he wants and we all have to believe / accept what he has to say.
And that's the problem with the "Rules" of modern combat. If you're trying to fight according to common decency and respect the various conventions, you're going to lose to an opponent that isn't.
The idea that war is meant to be a bloody, violent thing seems to be lost sometimes in the Western mind, but I think Ukraine has helped open eyes a little. It also isn't helped that whole swathes of society are so afraid to offend that they prevent an evaluation and response to an enemy that presents in non-traditional form (even if it is the traditional way that they have carried out warfare for centuries).
At least the current Gaza conflagration is making the hoi polloi realise that they've been sold a load of shit about who the bad guys are (they all are) and that the people they are championing are not very nice people.
Isn't that the annual Parisian riot season? They normally call it 'disaffected youth', but they're almost all from prior French territories across the Maghreb.
Maybe ask the Provos to do it. They've got plenty of prior experience.
I wonder just how many of them (and the Loyalists) have really put down their weapons. I'd wager that there's a lot of interesting finds to be made under hedgerows and tucked away in attics.
