I have a kettle and a jar of instant.

Fortunately, the kettle manufacturers were able to design a kettle that takes sufficient water, and the coffee manufacturers got the coffee at the right size to fit in the cup.

**** you, toaster manufacturers.

We toast with a grill oven that has a bottom hinged door. It is especially useful for reheating pizza, breadfruit slices and suchlike, which would get soggy when reheated in the microwave

Trust not thine toaster, for it will surely smacketh you in the mush eventually. And then they want money, and then they want custody of the children, and they'll certainly badmouth you to any mutual friends.

It all gets very messy.

If it misbehaves it has an instruction on the side of it that also doubles up as the manufacturer. So it misbehaves it will be hit hard, Roy Lichtenstein style.

This post-lockdown attitude engulfing the nation of “I’ll do what I want and f~ck everyone else”. From driving to dealing with businesses to family.

Seems like a perfect combination of post-pandemic hysteria merged with an unaccountable ruling class with a dash of culture war angry garnish.

I'm coming to the conclusion from my own experience and reading this site that you get charged for everything in Britain.

Getting fined by SE railway. Apparently when you change from DLR to national rail you don’t need to tap in the oyster even though a big sign says tap in and out. You only do start ans end of journey and when I asked what if I catch the tube??? Most probably my mistake but I am annoyed more at myself than anything else…..grrr….me taping out made my journey complete even though I changed platform and National rail is a new one I got on without tapping in….grrr

Some chap who came round with a thing to check my oyster card, he then issued me a ticket saying I got 21 days to pay or appeal and explain what happened and they may cancel it...... I was too nice I think

Isle of Wight 22-09-2021 07:15 PM

Hang on. You get charged per journey. If you checked in and out on dlr then in and out on SE you get two charges rather than one so the are £ in. I don’t understand what mistake you made that got a fine

yeah, I was confused by what the fineable error was too, but I think he tapped out when he changed from DLR to Network SE but didn't tap in again.

Yep, if doing a journey on rail with the TfL Zones then you tap in at the start and tap out at the end of the complete journey. The exception are where there are physical ticket barriers at the change point or to tap on a pink reader to identify which route you are taking on the journey. That said there are plenty of stations Tube/DLR to heavy rail where there are no barriers but still have a Card reader as you change. An example would be Woolwich Arsenal where I've seen a few people get puzzled whether they have to tap out at the top of the DLR steps, at the station ticket barriers if at all at that point.

^^^^

This is it, I done this journey many a times and done the exact mistake of tapping out at Woolwich Arsenal and the man said I should not have tapped out, but I did not leave the station and the time between taps and getting on the next train is a minute and when I tap out at my next stop I am alighting it will charge me. But he decided to fine me, and now I have gone online and appealed.

It did annoy me but now I am more chilled and just have to make sure they cancel it or I end up paying a 20 pound for being an idiot :(

Traveling on public transport in London with an Oyster card sounds about as complex as getting into Selhurst Park with your season ticket.

Like LN1 explained I tapped out where I should not have but they have a oyster card reader next to the platform and a sign saying tap in and out......I am on auto pilot and I just done it thinking it is the right thing to do. But I don't need to tap out unless I am leaving the station..........I think I am morphing into Hedgy

I checked my journey history and it does correct it after and charges me the fare from the start fo the journey to finish and shows how many taps I have. So in a way the system makes sure I paid the right fare, but it is annoying. But I also think it is easy for some one to make a journey on DLR for 1.80 and not pay on national rail and save money, that was not my intention and can see why the conductor fined me. (like I said I am chilled now, lol)

LN1 22-09-2021 08:26 PM

I can only assume that the Card reader at Woolwich is for those that have travelled in from outside the TfL zones from say the Medway towns and have a separate paper or e-ticket for South Eastern trains, You can then access the TfL network without having to go out the station then back in? It isn't very intuitive though if you don't travel much in the area and the signage should be better.

Probably one of the best things to happen to London in the past years and has made travelling so much easier. The introduction of contactless debit/cards means a lot of people don't even bother with Oyster cards now. Maybe Palace could upload tickets on to your Oyster and get discount travel to Selhurst as well ;)

It's useful 'cos you're in the pub and suddenly realised you'd promised to do the dishes but forgot to put the thing on.

Do it by phone and you save getting grief from the missus when you get home.

If you could find a dishwasher that loads itself then I'd be first in the queue to buy it!

All it does in this scenario is send a notification to tell you the fridge door is open. If you have an Apple Watch that means a tap on the wrist as well.

The bits on this fridge are really window dressing. It’s possible to set fridge and freezer temperature remotely and run a ‘smart diagnosis’ but that’s it.

And of course, everything is powered by electronic control units on PCB’s these days. So it allows firmware updates if they discover their code causes your freezer to switch itself off on the stroke of the summer solstice.

We saw a Samsung fridge that has a 15 inch screen and built-in speaker. It’s powered by Android so you can surf the web and listen to Spotify. Not sure on the utility of that was smart TV’s usually get deprecated after a year, so they’re unlikely to keep updating the fridge. You’ve probably already got a speaker in the kitchen and an iPad and probably a TV, so nothing good can come from having all of that contained within a fridge.

Hopefully companies are wiser to it but they have a record for not caring about security. They’re better off not connecting these things to the internet

You should see my home network. Everything is silo’d to f~ck but I do worry about the average Joe for those very reasons.

The bits on this fridge are really window dressing. It’s possible to set fridge and freezer temperature remotely and run a ‘smart diagnosis’ but that’s it.

And of course, everything is powered by electronic control units on PCB’s these days. So it allows firmware updates if they discover their code causes your freezer to switch itself off on the stroke of the summer solstice.

We saw a Samsung fridge that has a 15 inch screen and built-in speaker. It’s powered by Android so you can surf the web and listen to Spotify. Not sure on the utility of that was smart TV’s usually get deprecated after a year, so they’re unlikely to keep updating the fridge. You’ve probably already got a speaker in the kitchen and an iPad and probably a TV, so nothing good can come from having all of that contained within a fridge. Particularly if you forget to clear the cache and your wife is met at 6am by your historical enquiries about felching.

I can just imagine queuing for an hour to get into Selhurst with minutes til kick-off, then getting a notification saying the fridge door's open.

That's just bollocks. It's a box that keeps things cold, why would anyone need to connect to it with an app? Smacks.of. "Ooh look at me, I can talk.to.my fridge, how cool am I?"

You're not cool, you're a cock.

People (well, let's be honest, middle aged Women) who insist on doing their daily 'power walk' in a narrow road, when there is a perfectly servicable and empty pavement next to them.
No love, you're not walking so fast that anyone may mistake you for a motorised vehicle!
And for god's sake don't challenge them. Full on Karen style breakdown and language that would make Chubby Brown blush.

Tell them they're too fat for lycra.

I’ll check the app on my air con and let you know how cool I am.

Did annyone else used to have to sit through the once a term assembly where the most annoying little twat in your Primary School used to strangle out a 'tune' on his prized Casio keyboard?
Now imaging 5 of the ***** in your kitchen playing different tunes.
Just upgraded my kitchen. New fridge/washing machine/tumble drier/microwave/oven. Every single one of them plays a different tune when finished (except the fridge which does it when the door is left ajar). Why? What was wrong with the old style 'beep'.

Can you change the tune using an app on your phone?

I really hope so!! Although nothing that appears obvious.Time for some Youtube instructionals.

Tried to do a genuine nice gesture, and was denied by over zealous bouncers. Chatted in detail over weeks with a barmaid she showed in conversations she has above average interest and knowledge in stout beers. I live up the road from said bar and happen to have a excess of one of the current best stouts in the UK (according to Untapped) which I unfortunately find a little too sweet for my fussy palette lol - and so was going to give her one of my can (£10 net worth as a tip). Not allowed to enter pub lol

Good angle though....

I’m on my phone so can’t be bothered to search it out but someone posted a while back about those maths problems posted on Facebook.
There is one on my Facebook homepage today that has 8 million reply’s FFS!
The trouble is the correct answer is never given so it’s just an endless loop.

People who use Facebook!:D

Aches and pains........Is it a thing that when you get into your late forties that every tendon in your body must suffer prolonged relentless pains just to make your days even more miserable on real shitty days at work. These niggly little shits linger for the best part of a year and barely respond to treatments because they are so well hidden.
Suspect my years of sporting prowess along with an over physical job is to blame for these little joys and so far just the four to contend, ranging from tennis and golfers elbows, a groaning achilles tendon and joys of Osteitis Pubis to round things off nicely.
Moan over !!

I thought that could be a posh term for sensitive bollocks.


Looked it up and I'm glad your balls are not involved!

Yep. I’m 44 and used to play football and spring out of bed. These days, I’m like a slug rolling out of bed in the morning. I then stretch, go ‘oh,ah, ow’ and gently put my socks on hoping I don’t ping a lower back muscle. I gently manoeuvre about hoping said back muscles don’t seize up and go into spasm until I’m then all warmed up - daily routine.
