The peace prize is chosen by the Norwegian government. Politicians!
And having given it to a president with the only reason that he wasn't the old president, while it probably was good for peace, it wasn't very convincing for their credibility.
And the Nobel foundation has the power to swap who selects the laureate of the peace prize, but they probably won't.
For political reasons!
I believe this message is still ok in the lounge.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
I had to install acrobat, the other day, because we don't have licenses for anything else that lets you edit a pdf, but I forgot one little, minor detail...
Today, I opened Visio, and all my toolbar and menu customisations are gone, because adobe decided, long ago, that if you want acrobat, you're not allowed to have custom toolbars and menus in Visio.
This is an old problem, which both adobe and Microsoft know about, but that Microsoft can't fix, and adobe can't be bothered to fix (because it only wrecks a Microsoft product, and doesn't hurt theirs).
So I've just spent an unpleasant hour (trying to remember how to and) implementing the workaround (which involves hiding files, registry changes, and batch files), and I'm ready to brain any adobe employee who comes within reach of a length of 2x4.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Just tried a doughnut left over night, after I (from previous experience) warmed it for 10 secs in the microwave, bit in the s*d and covered myself, keyboard, prototype, desk, floor, monitor in more Jam at Naplam temperature than you would think possible at a temperature that is just plain too hot.
Because of the high sugar content it is possible for the jam to get much hotter than 100c.
Also the stickiness and density means it clings to skin and does deeper damage than if it were just water which would splash on but run off quickly.
This means that even if the temperature were lower than boiling water it would have much more heat and this would cause more damage.
You were lucky not to get scalded.
I have heard that in prisons inmates fill boiling coffee with loads of sugar so that it can be used as a weapon.

I fear it may be deliberate. At uni, the college I was at[^] had a newsletter that was posted in the lavatories (so you had something to read and, in extremis, emergency toilet roll) affectionately it was called "The Bogsheet" but it's official title was "The Carsehole" after the odd way some southerners pronounce the word "castle".
I've been entering January 1, spin the scroll wheel once as my birthday for years.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
