Re: The First World Problem Thread

Free lunch is not a problem.

My wildlife camera keeps taking photos of my very large arse instead of animals in the garden.

The snackman is on holiday, so I'll probably have to starve until lunchtime

Maybe you can switch the setting from panoramic to auto-zoom?

How would an ad blocker help neddy?

I can imagine pyjamas made out of a stealth material, or possibly a health club membership, but an ad blocker???

Neddy is beyond help but I appreciate the sentiment (the helping - not telling me to go to a gym).

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.

I've just been told that Sister Act 1 is better than Sister Act 2?!

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.
