I want to discuss the Netflix series 'Making a Murderer' with my colleagues but nobody has Netflix.
I feel like Marty McFly stuck in the 1950s.


You could start a thread?
In EF for example?


You know how? If not happy to help.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Repair guy (who is obviously just going to come and inspect the problem, go hmm, then write to the regie) makes me go home from work early, wait around for an hour past the appointed time, and then calls me to say he won't come until a inconvenient time later in the week afterall.
I thought the Swiss were supposed to be good at the whole punctuality thing?

Sometimes I forget that I'm using the adaptive cruise control on my car, and I wind up going very slow behind other people.

Alcohol is too cheap here, even considering my use of Canadian dollhairs.

Who drinks whisky on the rocks???

It is Sunday, 6am and I have been writing so I can ski later. It is an exciting FWP, could be worse.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The silly car parking sensor didn't warn me there was a boulder in the way (as I was veering in a parking lot - one of the "corners" has a boulder as an ornamental yard feature) and I scratched my front bumper. Luckily no dent, but still. I wonder if they fail to pick stuff up if the obstructions are too low? (but high enough to reach under the bumper and scrape the paint off.) And I was just getting comfy relying on it.
