My new 25" monitors with USB-C that I can plug my Samsung S9 into and use it a desktop.

 

No use for it in real life but it's quite cute.

Listening to a little kid in a restaurant first swing "hey diddle diddle" and then flick her fingers through her lips really fast.

That I only learned last night that Air Supply have 2 male singers, not one male and one female as I had always believed. I am slightly embarrassed. I am sure Russell Hitchcock would have a legitimate reason to post in the opposing thread as a result!

Headline in the NZ Herald today “Two Kiwi salesmen, one Hamilton motel room - and a death threat for snoring”.

Neil Armstrong had a run-in with a colleague after snoring in a shared motel room. He’s lucky he wasn’t in an Apollo capsule with Buzz Lightyear.

I had a moment in a packed carpark in the weekend which made me smile...driving around and around and around, when a tap on the window startled me and a nice (very young) lady told me to follow her to her car, so I could have her spot which she was just about to vacate...that made me smile quite a bit. 

 

 

 

She was brought up well - hats off to her and her parents.

Does this give it a low reflectance signature on law enforcement radars?
