Re: The First World Problem Thread

I've just switched from a windows phone to an iPhone, and i can't swipe to text anymore. Now I have to tap each letter like it's a typewriter.

Plus, why are there no punctuation marks on the first page? Come on Apple, full stops and commas are essential! No wonder kids these days don't make any sense.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

There is no free lunch.

The closest to it was a lunch I had at the SLC lib. I was there to check out the rooftop beehive. Not read the mormon reading material.

As far as I know, there's still no free lunch.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I doubt even Translate is that bad. Bad spammer attempt. They seem to use any old words in whatever order they feel like.

There was a spate of these back in the 2000s. They appeared to be an attempt to test out or defeat Bayesian spam filtering

The link you removed could have easily been evil.

I ate too much Stracciatella, followed by M&Ms. Now my tongue hurts.

We have misplaced Little Rufus' crocodile toothbrush. There is no wrath like the wrath of a knackered, thwarted, three year old.

Can't get Bohemian Rhapsody out of my head for the past 2 days.
