I have really nothing to do but still can't push myself to make a lot of posts and become a forum legend.

I replaced my 'giant' global wall map following the Independence of South Sudan, but now it looks like I'll need another once Crimea joins the Russian Federation

I swear Map companies are behind all this political turmoil

Oh come on, all you need are 60 more posts. Surely you can greet a few newbies and ask if stuff is still available in the Marketplace?

Scrap the paper. You just need a big flat screen and an internet connection.

Our new Dyson vacuum cleaner is so powerful, it fills up twice as fast as our previous cleaner
They shouldn't have been allowed to call it a ball cleaner though.

Mine are still sore (and no cleaner)

I made cookies. The recipe said it yielded 40 cookies. I got 68 rather large cookies! I will have to sacrifice and eat them, I guess.

I dream of having a dyson too.

But somehow I can't bear spending such a big amount of money for a cleaning apparatus!

Don't get one of the cool hangy-up ones. They look good, and they're ok for dust and fluff, but won't pick up anything extremely heavy, such as a Peanut M&M.

Decided to do the i.OS update for my phone in a short break before a meeting. It's taking so long I won't have time for a go on Candy Crush.

Our facilities manager at work writes stern notices and warnings in a "Comic Sans" font thus detracting from their authoritative tone.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Everybody is switching in or out of daylight savings time at different dates, and so I have to keep looking at the "World Clock" app on my phone to figure out if it's an appropriate time to call my family members and loved ones in Europe and South America!
