  1. Tesco slashes the non-jobs

    Mushrooms. http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/porcini
  2. Women who sleep their way up

    When anyone mentions (my) cynicism, I always remember this quote: Allegedly from George Bernard Shaw.
  3. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    Exactly this.
  4. f.lux

    Used to use it but ended up swapping to Redshift (http://jonls.dk/redshift/), for some reason I can't remember. Also use Twilight (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.urbandroid.lux&hl=en_GB) on my Android phone. There's also one for Apple too, but couldn't tell you what it is. No idea if it aids my sleep, but it is good that when looking at the screen late at night, it's not like looking into the sun.

  6. Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites

    the most basic, crapiest unit of energy
  7. Do you get the same feeling on a travelator?
  8. Muslim Boycott?

    Amazon and Google cant agree to play nicely together. So Google have decided to withdraw Youtube from Amazon devices, starting in the new year. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/12/google-will-pull-youtube-support-from-amazon-fire-tvs-in-2018/
  9. Aircraft Carrier

    Mmmm. the So-Called BBC article says: So, they were testing it, and they found a leak? Isn;t this the sort of thing that testing is actually for? Good story BBC.
  10. Very bad bosses

    On the positive side, having resigned, you should be able to enjoy a week or so of post resignation satisfaction, a bit of relaxation over the Christmas period and then focus on something new in the new year? That would be my approach.
  11. One Hundred and Ninety!!!

    170 checkout?! Wow! That is absolutely fantastic.
  12. Trivial Things that annoy you

    Hand dryers in toilets that only blow cold air. Grrrr...
  13. E-commerce costs

    If that happens, look at the amended code before you agree to do anything! You might conclude that you wouldn't want to touch it with a barge pole!
  14. Making the best out of bad job

    Who hired the new guy? The boss? Why?
  15. Just been reading about this too. Currently the best thing I can say about it is, at least it requires you to specifically opt-in to be part of it (although as dgul points out - "incentives" will no doubt appear to help you make the choice to opt in). There's a link to the site explaining what it's all about: https://www.openbanking.org.uk/ Just more ways of companies getting hold of data to sell stuff isn't it?
