So if this thread is so mind numbingly brainless why are you posting in it so much?
Because I have an opinion that I want to give whether people want to hear it or not, which is the primary reason anyone posts on this forum.

PS: It is called posting, not listing. Yeesh.

Back on topic, I would pick the fly out and drink the wine.
Thankyou for that, this richdog picks on me regularly for some reason

Why not follow your own advice above and put him on your ignore list?

He is as entitled to his opinion as you are, and the rest of us who haven't got him on an ignore list will tend to either agree or disagree with him, largely based on how we interpret your posts (or those of any other which he responds to).

1 screw you im not a 'wife'
2 i work!
3 i think you are very arrogant very rude and i wonder if some of the things you say via internet, you would say to peoples faces
4 if i want to post about flys i bloody well will do and if i offend you with my posts then simple DONT READ MY POSTS
My apologies about points 1 and 2, I made assumptions which now proven incorrect make it even harder to believe how you're not taking the mick.

And as long as you keep posting completely daft (to put it mildly) threads like this, I will happily give my opinion. There is an ignore feature you are free to make use of.

Re: Fly

Re: Fly

OP, Drink the wine. The fly is nothing to worry about.

More importantly, you should be concerned about these guys:



Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus.

They are living in your mattress and pillows, eating your dead skin and leaving their poo all over where you sleep. Millions of them. How old is your pillow? A sizable % of it's current weight is just feces of these little critters.

Do you have carpeting? Or upholstered sofas?
Pets of any sort?

These make the situation dramatically worse. If so, you're taking in Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus feces with each and every breath.

Have a nice weekend

I was wondering who would bring this up before me.

Just having a face is enough for feces.

Re: Fly

Fly in the wine? Depends

While a german carefully wash the cup sterilizes it and makes a new cup of wine, an italian would throw the cup, break it, and walk away in a fit of rage. The french on the other side take out the fly, and drinks the wine.

Chinese would eat the fly and throw away the wine.

Russian probably drink the wine with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.

The swiss keep it neutral probably a peace agreement with the fly...

Swallow it and see what happens.
You'll find out pretty sharpish if you're allergic to them.

Are you by any chance typing on a keyboard which only has keys for the letters and the comma?

Where did you get it?
Does it help you type at the same speed as you think?
Is it compatible with Windows 10?
