  1. Oh, yes. I definitely spuddle. Every day, in fact.

    1. Stephen


      Spuddle = spooge in puddle?  I'm not privy to this new lingo.

    2. Tickled_Pink


      It's actually old lingo, meaning: "To work tirelessly without achieving anything of worth. To put in a great deal of effort and achieve only very little." Pretty much me and every other Indie game dev on the planet.

      Sponge in poodle?

  2. Severe pandemic-driven chip shortages that are expected to last until next year. It's not helped by the fact that manufacturers, especially AMD, have moved over to 7nm and even 5nm processes. That reduced the yields. The smaller the gaps between transistors, the more errors creep in the fabrication process.
  3. Applying for jobs for the first time in 15 years. Not as much fun as I remember. Oh ... wait ... it was never fun.

      Best of luck!  Been there recently myself.

      One of my fave writers  (Charles Bukowski) worked for like 20 years before becoming successful enough of a writer to be able to earn a living from writing. He said that every time he went to apply for a job, interview for one, etc., he'd automatically assume he wouldn't get the job. So as a result, he was very calm, relaxed, nice and thus well-liked by the interviewers, so he usually ended up getting the job. And then when he would start the job, he was the same way -- laid back and relaxed so he'd get promotions and raises a lot. Humans like likable folks. They value likability over precision, reliability, punctuality, etc.. Good luck with the job hunt.

      @jd_1138 Good advice. Although I suppose it would be too much of a stretch to repeat the reasoning that another writer gave for effectively having a desk job if asked why I want the job. "It involves no heavy lifting." That writer was Terry Pratchett.

  4. Some people really are running their brains on power saving mode.

    1. jaybird3rd


      I'd say some of them also have defective memory, are permanently underclocked, and are overdue for a reboot.

      They're on screen saver mode.  Non stop flying toasters.

  5. Zidane, Conte or Ole ... hmmm ... who would I rather have at United?

  6. Congratulations to Italy. Best Eurovision winner in YEARS!

  7. Well, ain't that nice of 'em? Epic are giving away NBA2K21 and a £10 Epic Store voucher. No wonder Epic Store is losing them money hand over fist.

  8. I have an Ender 3. Setting it up is the hard part. I wasted a lot of plastic trying to get it to print properly before I discovered a few techniques. It depends on how technically savvy and patient your grandson it. If he's neither, then perhaps the Ender 3 isn't a good choice. I don't know if anywhere sells them pre-built as mine was self-assembly. But when you do get it running and printing properly every time, then it's an easy one to use and get into 3D printing with. It's just that initial setup, which can be a frustrating bitch.
  9. Me, threatening one of daughter's How to Train Your Dragon plushes: "It would be a shame if something happened to this."
    Her: "It would be a shame if something happened to yo ... actually, it wouldn't be a shame if something happened to you because I'd get £100,000."

    She remembered my life insurance policy. Sleeping with a knife under the pillow tonight.

      please don't hurt dragons... I don't blame her

      @GoldLeader -If she didn't have horses of her own, I'd be expecting to wake up with a horse's head in my bed by morning.

    4. Kiwi


      Better buy life insurance for the horses, just in case.

  10. Seriously. This kitten's a crack head. 🤦‍♂️

      When I was out yesterday, the same kitten that got herself stuck in a toilet got herself stuck inside a roll of sticky tape.

  11. Came home this morning to find one of the kittens had decided to take a swim in the toilet. Poor thing was exhausted when I found her. She's at the vet to warm up and rest. Luckily no water in her lungs.22222ol

      When the cat got old and sick, it started behaving strangely. It started using the litterbox less and less, and the rest of the house more and more. Her favourite new place to take a dump was next to the Playstation. Perhaps it was her way of telling me what she thought of it. :)


      I could be watching TV, and she would do it right in front of me. :)

    3. Tickled_Pink


      Our last cat, before he got sick and couldn't jump, had a habit of crapping in the kitchen sink if he couldn't get to his litter box. 🤢

      You had a very well trained cat.

  12. Some people need a high five, to the face, with a brick, by a bodybuilder, repeatedly.

    1. CPUWIZ


      Or a spell, to pick up a brick and repeatedly hit themselves in the face, cheaper and less hassle.

  13. Seen a British tabloid consistently push positive stories about Dogecoin recently. Wonder how much they invested in it?

  14. Just got two new kittens. We've no idea what to call them. Both girls, but my vote's on Listy & Smeg.

      Pick a couple of good names you like but don't be afraid to change them in a few weeks. Cats name themselves. ;) I remember when we changed Smoky's name to Hobbes - he would pounce on us, was very playful and LOVED tuna so much he'd steal it right in front of us.

    3. Tickled_Pink


      Yeah, they have what I think will turn out to be temporary names. My first cat when growing up named himself, in my and my sister's heads at least. We thought he peed a lot and was nuts. So we called him peanuts. Kids, huh?😂

      I had a friend that named his dog Askem.  So when people would say "What's your dog's name?", he would just say "Askem" and people would.

  15. Some people should rot in prison. Especially when dead. 150 years should mean 150 years.

    1. Draxxon


      Just as long as the corpse isn't earning any good behavior time off!

    2. Keatah


      Corpses are timeless.

    3. retrorussell


      Having to bunk with a corpse should scare any inmate straight!  Brilliant strategy!
