I've just spent 10 minutes with a chatbot and now I'm going to be passed onto someone even more useless than a generic answer-tree

I got two mates who are too generous with kiss-emoticons on whats-app.

How am I supposed to recognize and cherish a "real" one from anybody in the future?!
None of them. Genuine one neither uses app emoticons, nor plays the games. He simply grabs and kisses straight away.

I missed half the dialogue during the movie Atomic Blonde, because I was utterly mesmerised by how fricking amazing Charlize Thereon looked.

My other half is out tonight, so I'm going to have to postpone the GoT finale until tomorrow...

Or, I watch it, and fake it tomorrow.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Some juvenile punk in a Seat Leon Cupra clocked me at the lights, revved-up, and then floored it when they turned green.

I was holding an ice cream at the time so clearly unable to whup his ass.

Oh well, at least he has a good story for the grandchildren

I think it must have been me who accidentally had squashed a rain spider few weeks ago. There's huge mark on the door frame now and no volunteers in the house to do something about it. Everyone pretends not seeing there's esthetic problem there.

It's illegal to tamper with evidence at a crime scene.

To be serious for moment, a tip here.

When faced with a drop down list of countries, and you want to select 'Switzerland', type a single 't'.

This will more often than not take you to the first country beginning with 'T'. From there a single up-arrow gets you 'Switzerland'.

(Doesn't always work, but it's always worth a try).
