Yes but is it knife-proof so Japanese schoolchildren can use it without being stabbed?

"engineers have develope"...

develope? ah, you must mean the mighty Develope, the rare, antlered species running free on the planes of the African savannah!

So... porn will also be shrunk, accordingly?

Can you sit on it, and get a high-res pic of your butt?

Think of how many lives will be saved -- no more falling through the copier to send your boss a scan of your arse....

Oops, I mean:

How come I, after a night of drinking, can come home and notice that it should be "develop" but a presumably sober admin can't notice and/or fix it? Shouldn't such information be in the FArQ?

It shows that you're drunk... it should be developeD. But you are correct, the admins should've seen it.

I locked myself out of the house the other day and tried to pry the lock open with the scanner but ended up breaking it.

Lucky Bob: it should be developeD

That's debatable. Develop could be acceptable as well. Thread needs voting now.
2004-12-23 01:38:15 AM  
Of course, now that attention has been brought to it, it has been fixed. I love it when a plan comes together.
2004-12-23 01:41:33 AM  
presumably sober admin


Thanks for the heads up though.

The Japanese miniatureize everything in order to make their penises appear larger. "Ahhhh soooo biatchhh, I make your ass itch srightry for one week!"

Anyone else notice that in the past few weeks, a lot of headlines have gotten through that put a comma before the cliche at the end instead of making the cliche a new sentence?

I'm probably the only one who is annoyed by it, but could maybe submitter(s) change that?

In two years, a Chinese corporation will have 'developed' this technology too and sell it for 1/1000th the price of what the materials cost to produce it, let alone actually paying someone to press the button on the machine.

Then they will try to sell it to the Japanese where nobody will have a job anymore to pay for this fancy schmancy [I like that phrase more and more] thingamabob because they can barely make the rent on a cardboard box anymore.

That's progress for ya.

Ahh, something just the size to scan their tiny Nippon weeners. Unless they have Hentai tentacles....

"The scanner uses light-sensitive organic components instead of light-generating ones, and comprises a polymer matrix in which thousands of light-sensitive plastic photodiodes have been deposited beneath a grid of plastic transistors."

Now why didnt I think of that!!
2004-12-23 05:03:11 AM  
But does it come with frickin' lasers attached to its head?
2004-12-23 08:52:57 AM  
That's debatable. Develop could be acceptable as well

Well, it used to say have develope, so it definately should've been with a 'd'.

Luckily the admin saw the wisdom of my post and turned it into develop. I win!

The universities and colleges are shatting in their pants right now. You should've seen how much they're scared of cellphones in an exam now.

Oh, I'm Sory Mr. Bond but your British Express has been Cancelled.
