    Your mug, my mug, or everyones bloody mug ?

    Had a couple of chicken pies that vanished from the work fridge years ago. Re mugs, in an office situation I used to bring my own. Like many others it often went over a week without a wash. So I guess that in itself was adequate deterrent for nobody to borrow it. Often if I go out somewhere where it's likely I'll have a coffee, I'll take my own thermos mug. The problem I have with this shared cup thing is that usually they're of a pathetic size. I've got probably near 20 coffee mugs at home but my Parramatta Eels one is the goto as it's about 500ml in size with the next biggest nearly 100ml less. Standard sized mugs just don't cut it, and I can't be arsed doing repeat kitchen visits to make another cup when the first one can be the size I want.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    A bit long, but for the OMFQBBQ moment, tune in a bit after the 8 minute mark when he pulls and measures the capacitors.

    Throw flour between their legs to reveal the wet spot then slap 'em on the leg and ride in on the wave.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    My XBox One controller (genuine, not 3rd party crap) arrived today (Fleabay) - for my Apple TV, don't have any XBOne console here. $57.99 for a new one and only 4 days from when I committed (I'd made a $52 offer but there was no reply on it) Only downside is it's black and I'd wanted white. But a worthwhile saving given the best price in actual stores was $78 at Target. ed - well, helps if it's a Bluetooth one. Turns out I've ordered the wrong model.

    Kermit and Piggy - it'd be a bit like a whippet trying to root a rottweiler (with the relative personalities roughly matching the pair also)

    The truth is out there.

    FTL travel is likely possible. Either - wormholes, manipulation/folding of space, manipulation of local Higgs field to eliminate mass, plain old brute force thrust that punches through the barrier. Or something else. About 40 years ago we knew nothing of exoplanets, now we can practically tell what sort of atmosphere some of them have. So imagine the surveying capability of someone who can travel FTL - they could probably survey a radius of 50 light years without having to visit any of the systems, which would allow building up a life supporting map pretty quickly.

    Project Binky

    Rather than let it get lost in the 'What did you watch lately?' thread, this is deserving of it's own topic. Project Binky - ongoing project by Bad Obsession Motorsport to transfer the running gear from a Celica GT-Four into a classic Mini. Huge thanks to Outcast Aussie for bringing this series to our attention to begin with. Episode 13 is out now! And while you're at it, if you like cars, building cars, modding cars, whatever - just add their channel to your account: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHvBHWBzzB7NyU5tIiEZHBg I've got the latest ep downloading now in 720p to go with the remainder of the collection. At 20+ minutes apiece, definately worth playing on the big TV. To download YouTube videos can be a hit/miss affair at times. Currently my best solution is a Firefox extension called "Download YouTube Videos as MP4", it puts a download button on each video's page which gives drop down options to save in whatever resolutions are available. Another method is to visit a site that does the work for you, in my bookmarks are two which work sometimes but more often just don't: VideoGrabby: Youtube Downloader YouTube Downloader Today's plan for me - watch ep 12 to get back up to speed then watch the new one (I've watched the entire series twice already). Then come back later with comments. Also, the guys were at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. There's numerous videos around for each year's event, though I don't know if they get any mentions.

    What's on your mind?

    17, you beauty! FFS, they need to get rid of some of the pre-race bollocks and start the thing at 10:30 to cater for the inevitable delays.

    What's on your mind?

    The start must have been delayed - I was out so tried streaming it through the phone. They had some other rubbish on, I guess to stop people out of the region viewing it. And the stream didn't work for me regardless.

    The race is barely a lap and a half in and they jump to a long commercial break. What a fucking joke.

    asus vivotab

    I've been using it for near 3 years on Macbook Pros. The problem is that it'll likely be of little use in getting another OS installed - it only scans for bootable partitions with OSes already installed.

    So I suppose a fraction of the weight? And on a bike reducing that unsprung weight would do wonders. But I bet it's as fragile as a Faberge egg. People crap on about the strength of the stuff but the reality is it's no miracle material, the carbon is just the filler in a bath of resin much the same as fibreglass.

    I don't think I've watched the show to any degree since before Elmo came along and before Snuffy became known to all the grown-ups. Just why the hell they did even that is beyond me. I guess you could say that for both... Elmo is sort of a Jim Henson answer to Jar Jar Binks (though he was first by a long shot). Why not just leave them as is and introduce a same sex couple where one has just transitioned and still getting the hormone therapy and educate the kids as to their woes trying to work their way up the adoption queue to get the kid they're so entitled to.

    Did I omit to mention? Wankers with their high beams. And just a little while ago... fucking J-walking kangaroos, almost hit one. Though I was being bad at the time, was scrolling over a map on the phone seeing if cheap petrol was enroute.

    Those alcohol based ones were supposed to be the saviour or at least next big thing but that was years ago. But of course the energy storage industry employs the same marketing bullshitartists that the renewable energy industry does.

    Problem with traffic lights these days seems to be that they're now a cheap option vs roundabouts. So now they're popping up inside barely busy suburban roads here. Next thing - the wankers who have NFI how to lane change including the lazy cunts who don't bother with the indicators.

    NiMh aint too bad. No such thing as an infallible rechargable technology ATM. Lithium has the energy density but is almost as bad as the rest insofar as lifespan and discharging when not in use.

    If BC was here, he'd have a field day with that pic. Worst shit on the road... tailgaters, closely followed by mobile phone users. And a not to distant third are all the retards who have NFI how to use roundabouts.

    Air pressure would act more on the water actually - like the tidal action of the moon (which in itself does have some affect on the crust)

    Ambulance? Looks like the blue+white checkerboard of a cop car to me. Most ambos these days have the high-vis combo of white+red+yellow/lime green.

    The phone is a distraction, simple as that. The simple demonstration being that the simple act of walking without running into other people is severely impeded as well.
