Lol. i can imagine the force busting into the guys house then on seeing the bunch of weapons just saying 'SHIT LADS, A CASIO!'
Think that there's a few users we might not be hearing from for a while.
Millions and millions of people have these types of Casio watches.
If I had known that, I would have thrown (the watch) away.
Quotation marks have been detained indefinitely. When will there be a trial sean? How long can this go on?
I'd have questions about the guy who's got two of them.
Maybe the battery was about to go in one of them and he couldn't work out how to take the casing off to replace it so he just bought a new one.
If the cia are reading this, i don't really have one, it's just a hypothetical suggestion.
(yours would be a fair answer to what i think, given extenuating circumstances, could still be a fair question. But i think i'd be more concerned about the guy with all those semi-automatic weapons)
Whats the deal with that then?
Locking people up for no reason until they die is something that despotic dictators do. The US being a modern democracy would never stoop to such a level.
who just sell 'books' which are just printouts of Wikipedia articles.
Look how many 'books' PJ Harvey (for example) has had 'written' about her - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_i_2?rh=k%3Apj+harvey%2Ci%3Astripbooks&keywords=pj+harvey&ie=UTF8&qid=1297246800
It's legit in terms of the Wiki licence, afaik, but the sellers aren't exactly upfront about exactly what it is they're selling (some 'publishers' create fancier covers than the obviously generic black text version on most of the ones that tend to pop up).
PS: you can make your own PDF Wiki-book via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books which is obviously free, and maybe kinda cool if you need to do some basic groundwork reading on a topic (on an iPad or kindle) and haven't got an internet connection. Or you can print out a your custom book - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Printed_books
that Casio list book is supposedly 44 pages - that must some pretty large font they're using
and a lot of those PJ Harvey ones are 20-odd quid on marketplace.
None of this makes sense and it makes me feel sad.
try an amazon book search for 'people from [insert place name here, works best with counties or bigger cities]'
www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1157845894 = a printout of http://tinyurl.com/4s7eu2j (sfw), presumably.
That'll be between £7.57 and £11.87 (+ £2.80 delivery), ta.
We can surely look forward to an inevitable time of information singularity when a wikipedia article quotes one of these 'books' (i.e. itself) as a source.
...*cancels trip to The US*
I am now expecting MI5 to kick down my front door,just for looking.
I'll see myself out.
*waves casio watch in your face but doesn't growl*
A TERROR-WRIST WATCH
I used to have a Casio F91w when I was at school.
My old boss has like 4 or 5 of those on his kitchen wall and one on his wrist
