Trademe winners who want to renegotiate price/terms after they win, and then get offended at the negative feedback they receive...

I haven't been sick for a year, 72 hours in NZ and I've got a cold.

 

Probably caught it on the plane.

I fly a lot. Damp and cold has more to do with it than the plane.

GSManiac: People who hold the phone out in front of them to speak, then put it back to their ear to listen to the other end.


The only time this is ok is when driving


If by "ok" you mean "illegal", sure.


Pretty sure this technique of misusing a phone was popularised by one of those shows that follows slebrities who are "famous" for no reason at all.  And as far as I can tell from the few minutes I had the misfortune to catch before I could gouge my eyes out, it was done that way so that the viewers could have the displeasure of hearing the phone conversation as well.



Sarcasm is hard for some people to pickup ;)

The fact that none of the studios picked up Limitless for a second series.

Being told I wasn't qualified to read a meter when I moved into our new house 🤔

 

 

 

Wanted to make sure the power company new what the meter read was when I got there, not what the last guy had said it was.

The mixing of CGI animation with real images in space documentaries that makes it almost impossible in many cases to tell what is actual and what is just clever imagery. I don't mind the technique in itself, as it often adds clarity and vividness to the actual images, but I wish it would be made clear which is which. These days anything can be made to look real and it bothers me when I can't be sure that what I am seeing is what was actually photographed. What is the point of space probes or nature documentaries at all if it can all be deep faked?

Queried power provider, nope meter is working fine, should not be reading the meter.

Why would a burglar want to know your meter reading?
