PCB laced oil from HV transformers, Lead Acetate, Floric acid, and some green mould scraped off the rocks in the geology lab.

Mix with a bamboo whisk.

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


More time for you with the fancy toys. Your perspective is all wrong, mate.


You're just jealous that we don't have to bother with real problems

A real-life EF melt-down appears to be little more than a hissy fit.
Are you a danger to either yourself or others currently?

Sorry, this is one of your posts again where the meaning eludes me completely.
But MC seems to have gotten it so there must be something in it.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

We were invited for a fondue yesterday by an aged relative of my Swiss wife.
Turned out she had never in her life prepared a fondue.

At home I am always the one who prepares the Fondue.

So it finished up that the Englishman prepared the fondue for the Swiss ladies

No clue. But as I have you on-line, have you given any further thought to this:

This should be in the 'good deed of the day' thread if there was one!

My fwp is: while the honourable OH fiddles with the fondue set, i have to prepare ALL the other bits that go with it. And it's not just cutting bread and opening a wine bottle... And then i have to clear all the crap off the table, all 55 plates of condiments and soak the damn fondue pot!

No I haven't really. As, if I'd have to ask the question in that post you linked, I would already have lost interest. LOL. (Spontaneity, remember?)

You could always revive this thread though.
