Surely it's CAT6 :-)

This area is being jointly developed by Australia and East Timor, I believe.

200 miles is standard for an Exclusive Economic Zone.

Prelude is not near East Timor, you may be thinking of Sunrise.

See eg. : http://www.smh.com.au/business/woodside-petroleum-calls-for-...

"I just couldn’t believe they could fly people in to sit at our desks and take over our jobs exactly."

Doesn't sound like remote work to me.

Same situation in Canada, except we call them "temporary foreign workers."

These programs are supposed to fill a shortage, but in practice they just provide cheaper labour.

Real means "Royal" in Portuguese as well.

Are these supposed to be funny?

"a man wielding an electric razor is gleefully shaving away another man ' s hair ."

Hilarious!

I think they've stumbled on computer-generated comedy. Some funny stuff in there.

That's from the "Nearest Caption in the Training Dataset". Which means it found the most similar image, and that image had that caption.

-----


No. That is not how it works. Read the papers again.

-----


It very clearly says "Nearest Caption in the Training Dataset". The generated labels are below it.

-----


What papers?

-----


This one http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~nitish/nips2014demo/results/82676... has a tag "fingering"

It must be making some very broad generalisations to come up with the tag 'homosexuals'...

-----


It weirded me out, too.

The only image I tried (http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~nitish/nips2014demo/results/79355...) is tagged "lesbianism".

Just change your diet, and the microbiome will change.

Where does it pull the photos from? I'm sure there's one of my photos there.

-----


Arbitrary URLs or uploads on the 'contribute' form, apparently.

Another great feature for local SIMs is that they are often "caller pay." So that if your family does want to call your French phone number from the USA, then they end up paying for the call, not you :-)

I'm Canadian, and my first stop when driving into the USA is to stop at the first department store I come across and buy a T-mobile SIM. If they don't have any, I just buy the cheapest "burner" phone and take the SIM out and pop it into my iPhone.

I agree with you for household garbage. Should be just like any other city utility.

Not for commercial and industrial garbage, though. Which is what this is about?

-----


Is this a joke? http://vastpic.net/photos/chemtrails.jpg

Love the filename.

-----


It's no joke. It's what the photographer wanted to name it ;-)
