My smartwatch just congratulated me on getting up from the sofa and being active.

I was getting up to get another packet of crisps; so I feel guilty for accepting such praise
I KNEW I needed a Smartwatch, thanks

In a multiverse there is a parallel, but complementary. ~Neddy just opened her dryer expecting to see a sea of pink frilly Hello Kitty socks, and found 3 green, 7 black, and 1.4 grey.
Agree (well, that or a leak in the rubber bit around the round thing you use to open the machine, which sucks everything into it's orbital going-on stuff).

What is this bull**** of Europe, USA and Brazil all choosing different dates to set the clocks back/forward?

Brazil has already moved forward, Europe is going back this coming weekend (28/29), and the US is going back on Sat 4/Sun 5.

Pick a single darn date and stick with it instead of confusing people all over the globe!!!!

[Look forward to multi-time zone conference calls...not]
Give it up all together. No human profits from it, the cows suffer and the other pets get annoyed

Oh I don't know. Used to work quite well sometimes when the UK and France weren't in the same time zone. You could actually have a couple of weeks when the UK and France were the same time and not have to change your clocks when you holidayed in either country.

I discovered a salted peanut butter ice-cream by Ben & Jerry's but when I went back for more, my Coop no longer had any.

Spotted at the Coop: Ham and cranberry flavored potato chips.

Which begs the question: Why?

I feel your pain.

Invariably after discovering a delightful new product I go back later to purchase it again, only to find the desired item has inexplicably disappeared, never to return.

I have now learned to buy multiples of any new discovery I think I will like.

FWP: In the land of minimilism, Swiss retail stock practices have turned me into something of a hoarder.

I’ve got the same issues.

I actually think consumer people at Coop and Migros keep a careful eye on my shopping, and when there’s an item I seem to particularly like they suspect there must be something with it, so it needs to be discontinued. Perhaps I have totally opposite tastes to the rest of the Swiss population?

You don't treat them right, that's it. Wanna bet my little Migros will have sesamum oil on the shelf within a month? I asked them to this week
