    My shower fixture drives me up the wall. 6 o'clock is SPOSED to be perfect-not too hot, not too cold.It typically will singe yerass but good. Move the control over to where it should be perfect, but you'll STILL fricassee yr poor self. > And when you THINK you finally have the right position, then you gotta fiddle fart around w/it,as it has to get itself situated again.

    I once had a shower with separate hot and cold valves. It would get too hot. Every time I turned a valve to cool it down, it would get hotter until a certain point. Then, it would get too cold and with every adjustment to make it warmer, it got colder up to a certain point and too hot again. Very frustrating. It's been almost 30 years since I lived there, but the memory still haunts me.

    New website. First time logging on. Ten seconds in, before I've had a chance to check anything out, I get a pop-up saying something like "Like our site? Want to subscribe to to our daily updates?"

    TV Bland has been going down the tubes for years. Even when they were a classic station, they showed butchered episodes. I remember them proclaiming "full episodes streaming online" of The Beverly Hillbillies. We're talking my A1 favorite show, a show that has rarely been seen in its unedited form since the 80's when Viacom stopped syndicating via 16mm film and went to tape, chopping off about 3 minutes of the show. I went online anticipating I would be seeing an unedited version. Nope. Same old nonsense with 3 minutes butchered out. When I complained, I was given the reasoning of "well, it contains the ending theme song which is cut out on TV." That's NOT a full episode, dummies!

    I don't know if people say this in the US, but here in Britain, when people on telly say "he was poorly" meaning he was unwell or "very poorly" if he was ill. I yell at the telly "very poorly what?, you didn't finish the sentence!" Very poorly....lit? Very poorly described?

    No, we don't use that expression that way here. At least not if I am understanding how you use it correctly. We might say "The room was poorly lit." or something like that. Maybe my old brain just needs clarification. :idea::(

    I like that they have been showing the lost episodes of "Bonanza" lately. However, I agree that it's not what it used to be.

    My pet peeve is when kids blindly follow along with things they think are "cool", when in reality they are anything but that.

    For example, there's this guy on YouTube named Jake Paul, and I'm not going to go too in-depth about him, but here's a news report on him:

    That's egregious!

    Of course, if you cut them off, the Shirt Tag Police will show up and arrest you. :thumbsdown:

    "It's deja vu all over again." I heard it yet again from a weather wonk on The Weather Channel yesterday.

    You know when you go to the Blade Runner 2049 Virtual Reality experience at SDCC, randomly get tested positive for being a Nexus Replicant, make a break for it, get grabbed mid-stride by the back-pack and slammed up against a wall. I hate that. The cops of the future have no sense of humor.

    I looked online via the website of a shop in my town for the price of a vacuum flask intending to get it next day (today). It was advertised online at £7.99 but when I went into the shop, the price was £14.99. I should have said something but I didn't. I looked at the delivery prices online and, because I live in the highlands, the delivery price went from £3.99 to £9.00! Mainland is £3.99 but for some strange reason, England still thinks the highlands are off shore, I mean, they have maps, don't they? So, the online price would then have been £16.99! I can't win :mad: :rant:
    :biggrin: Rant over.
