Re: The First World Problem Thread

Had a problem this week on a stain that appeared suddenly on my bathroom ceiling this week (no cause of our own).

Did a search on EF on how to react e.g. whether to report it to the wrath of our Vermieterin (who might accuse us of not airing properly, despite the wash machine plumbing just above), or whether to just take a mould-killer spray.

Opted for the better version

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I don't know how it's possible, but it turns out I might be a better thinker when tired late at night rather than tired in the morning.

I got every single chess tactics problem wrong this morning on Chess.com. I lost 40 points.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Last Friday night I ordered some pizza online, and wanted to pay by cash and tip the delivery guy. I didn't have anything smaller than a 100, so ended up having to order more food.

The week before that, I made myself a Bloody Mary, and was dismayed to find that I didn't have any celery for garnish. Started sizing up some broccoli for the job... Desperate times...

Waiting for more Harry Potter play tickets to be released is oddly stressful. I think it's the clock counting down ...

I bought Somersby cider today - it's disgusting, do they pour perfume into it?!
I want a scrumpy jack.

Even more tedious is having to locate your mouse pointer across three high resolution screens.

Two possible helps:
  • Right click (or press the menu key on the keyboard). Quite likely that'll bring up a context menu which should be easy enough to find.
  • In the Mouse properties of the Control Panel, turn on the sonar function, turn on mouse trails and turn off hide while typing (in that preference order).

There is a Europe-wide shortage of courgettes and yet all we hear about is Trump and Brexit.
