You mean writing ten without half the spam deputies seeing what you are doing?

No, you were just trying to get your post count up so you could sell in the Marketplace. You said so yourself.

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.
