I was actually wondering about that too the other day
I think the camera captures what the others see, while the mirror is inverted. Which means, should one think s/he's pretty s/he's probably the only one

Seems like winning a million on the lotto is a pain in the bum...

I like pain.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

She wanted to play with hopes of winning and now she moans about it? Easy option, don't play.

And next time take the advice of the expert Camelot provides for you.

Note she makes no mention of giving all her money/assets accumulated via the lottery away.

Some people are never satisfied.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Too stupid to spend a million, too stupid to give it away.

Is The Independent now competing with Buzzfeed?

And how many more millions does she want from the Euromillions to ease that pain?

She bought two properties

The silly thing is it is only a million. These days a million will change your life, but not massively like 100 million would. A million is a nice sum to set you up perfectly and make life easy, without forcing massive changes in your lifestyle.

She really is taking the biscuit.

That must be new. The Duplo sheep didn't have shoes when our kids were young.

It's an impoverished sheep. I should be grateful it wasn't the giraffe, I suppose.

What's not to understand? Giraffes have longer necks & pointy faces therefore more painful if you step on one. In some places sheep have wellyboots. Where Rufus is they have shoes. It's winter.

Saw this rather exciting thread, started to read, but the thread went 'south'... The thread lost its purpose... I am crestfallen...
