I haven't specifically had a KFC bucket since about 2004, so I can't honestly say otherwise.
Anyway, the little strap that held the buckle on was made of paper.

We've all come close to pissing off other drivers. I've often wondered what the safest course of action wd be if some Nutter pulled up short in front of me and got out of his car and approached mine. Should I sit tight, drive off or get out and face up to him. Any thoughts?

Depends if you have a dashboard camera or if you're in view of a shop camera or something of the like. If you have/are, just sit there and don't do anything.

This exact situation happened a few weeks ago - although I was the pedestrian and observed the whole discourse.
One dickhead pulled in front of a uber driver, they had their windows facing each other and both wound down their windows to swear and spit at each other. It was utterly pathetic and bizarre. Numerous threats of killing each others families, slitting their throat, etc... were made. Other drivers around them were getting irate at the needless hold-up, so they stopped this and parted ways. I felt embarrassed for them.
both of them were bongos if that makes a difference

I went to Brantano to look at their liquidation sale and it's only 10% off men's shoes sizes 8 and above. If you have diddy feet then it was 50-70% off.

I went to Brantano's the other day and felt a bit cheated by their 10% off. There's a song in there somewhere.

I've got a new phone. It's helpfully offered to restore all my apps and settings for me. Except now that it's complete, it's only shifted the apps but none of the fucking data. In particular, some of the most important apps just refuse to let themselves be backed up.
I'm a bit concerned about unlocking and rooting the old phone, as I've heard that doing that has a tendency to wipe the thing.

Snapchat filters are incredibly fucking annoying.
|>>|| No. 25232
The remedy is to not use Snapchat, not engage with anyone with Snapchat, and repudiate any forms of Snapchat to the point where references seems meaningless.
Also I don't think anyone over the age of 25 actually uses it.

I'm 24 and I've never used snapchat or instagram or any of this shit. Seems teenladdy to me.

I'm 27 and I still have Snapchat on my phone. Yes women overuse filters and you can't hold a conversation over it without both parties forgetting what you're talking about but I get pictures of titties sent to me and amusing snapchat stories from pissed mates.

The Guardian's Brexit coverage is starting to get on my tits again. In this week alone we've had:-
• The rise in student loan interest rates. This is everything to do with Brexit and hardly anything to do with the unfair system of interest charged at RPI + 3% which means that, for most people they'll only start paying it off when they're earning over £40-£50k from the outset and have to be in continuous employment, so no maternity leave, which means that the interest rate could be 2000% and it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference as they'll still repay the same amount regardless and it'll still be written off after so many years.
• Overseas expat pensioners are facing poverty. This is everything to do with the effect of Brexit and exchange rates and hardly anything to do with the fact that State Pensions have been frozen for some countries by numerous governments.
It's reminding me of before the Referendum when people said the EU was being used as a scapegoat for UK government incompetence, except the same people claiming this are now blaming Brexit for UK government incompetence.
Naturally, the comments BTL are full of rabid nutters who want to treat it like a football match and only care if their side wins so they should 'BREXSHIT! BREXSHIT!' to their heart's content, in between saying Leave voters hate the old, the young, foreigners, are ignorant, etc. It seriously is the Two Minutes Hate.

>This is everything to do with the effect of Brexit and exchange rates and hardly anything to do with the fact that State Pensions have been frozen for some countries by numerous governments.
Well, no. That actually is a Brexit thing. The general principle now in effect is that overseas pensioners don't get their state pension uprated unless they're in a British overseas territory or the host nation is prepared to subsidise it. Pensioners living in the EU get their state pension uprated because they have rights under EU law and treaties to be treated no less favourably than if they were living at home. Countries with weaker economies like Spain and Greece may not inclined to stump up the cash once we've left.

The article was squarely about existing people affected in the likes of Canada by frozen State Pensions and the fall in Sterling. The underlying issue is the unfairness of this freeze, not Brexit and speculation on what could happen to expats in the EU.

Which is of course completely unrelated to Brexit. Also, I've got some fantastic seafront properties in Shropshire you might be interested in.

You're wilfully missing the point. The issue is clearly that the pensions are frozen. This was an issue before the Referendum and is still an issue now, although Brexit has exacerbated it over the short term at least.
If Brexit makes a problem worse then the issue is still the problem in the first place. The focus should still be on our government and making sure these issues are dealt with.

/101/'ing institution/company websites that show your contact details and what you do.
I've discovered that my academic details have been published on a university website where I do research. The only reason I even found out is because some fucknugget I've never met keeps emailing me 'interesting articles' i.e. the guardian.
By the looks of things my ignorance has allowed me to avoid submitting a short bio and picture for the website but how long will I be able to hold out? It looks to be standard so its only a matter of time until they drag me kicking and screaming into unexpected conversations. Yes I'm aware networking is important but I do that the proper way.
Just picture it, you're in line for coffee trying to remember your order when a stranger starts talking and asking for your opinion on complicated things. As this is going on you are fast approaching the till but juggling between doing a transaction right and making professional conversation with all its weird nuances. Your body goes into fight or flight mode so you involuntarily clench your fists causing your hands to become even more sweaty from perspiration as your mind rushes in a panic.
I'm far too much of a shy and anxious recluse for this. I mention coffee because many moons ago in my first year of university a girl I had a crush on was behind me in the queue at a coffee shop and I completely bollocksed my order up as a result causing the barista to take a condescending tone with me making the whole thing worse. I left with a medium black coffee and never spoke to her again.
Autism ticked because it probably applies. I'm sure you lads will understand though that anonymity is a wonderful thing that should be preserved.

Reminds me of the time when after a particularly long and busy day I ordered a hot chocolate with cream but no mushrooms. The woman behind the counter correctly guessed that I didn't want marshmallows either.

They've been sending me notificaions. That's funny, I thought. I'm sure I've turned off all the notification settings. So I go and check and yes, I've turned everything off. I'm not even subscribed to anything.
They've also taken away the autoplay switch so now if you're watching something that's been crowbarred into a playlist, unless you manually stop the video before it finishes, the next video will start playing whether you want it to or not.

It's working for me.
I can sympathize though as Spotify completely fucked up their webplayer UI this week likely due to them realizing that everyone just runs the free edition with adblock.
