I keep getting emails like this today:

<<said be have the came to which of off was go chap mention way were I Hubble U ... >> (I removed the link, in case any of you are dangerously nosy )

That's not even google translate, is it?
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.

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

Having a new central heating boiler installed in a couple of weeks. Man came today to put the cleaning fluid through the old one and now we have to have the central heating on for the next couple of weeks so it can circulate. And outside temps are predicted to hit 29-30!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The shower gel on offer at Migros came in bags rather than bottles and so I have to do the menial task of filling in the shower bottle myself... What are we, slaves now?
