People that listen to shit music should have headphones stitched to their ears.Someone's editing a sports video behind me. If I hear this generic Eurotrance shit track one more time, their imac is going out the window.https://t.co/SiWjKJDqvp https://t.co/k78s3ZLITG @JimmyDiResta @damienleclerc From extensive research and analysis, you're looking for see-concept type C frames. Mine are arriving this week

@FeatherCycles Those supermarket ones are grown quickly in forced nitrogen tents. Once out they starve. Seeds, light and lots of water.

Surrounded by morons. #Surrounded_by_morons.Hey, it's not his fault he can't afford to pay for the thing he agreed to buy. I shouldn't even be selling it, tempting him to spend money.Even if you've been fucked about by non-paying eBay scum, you can't leave negative reviews any more. Welcome to the no-blame society.

All the hipsters who allegedly sit in an eames dining chair at minimal desks clearly don't sit long enough for the backache to set in.People that win eBay auctions and then don't pay and never heard from again, should be removed from society, painfully.

Er... when did Arnolfini become a museum? https://t.co/gVtVyMW5yiHow I currently feel. https://t.co/IKrHDvXfuO #toomuchcoffeeI am literally selling the family silver, and it seems that all it's worth is scrap weight. Brilliant!Bins, recycling, washing up, cleaning... all this must be done before anything else. Absolutely no Daredevil before this. None.

Personally, I'm not asking anything of them. I prefer to talk to squishy humans, not googles death machines. https://t.co/wS9WrytIENThey can't be that popular that short supply bumps the price on a daily basis.Every time I consider a SKX007, the prices of them go up. I'm bloody cursed. Up buy £40 at least this week. Out of stock in most places.

Andrew is conspicuously absent from this @SkyNews special report.I'm going to have to find a decent local seller of printed matter, as W H Smith seems to have given up stocking anything of interest.I got a letter from @ThreeUK with the good news that they're putting the price of my plan up so they can take over O2 and please the CMA.Only fire would separate me from my 2012, last of the you-can-fix-it MBPs.

Security my arse. It's a monopoly sold on a climate of fear.You can't take water through airline security any more, but you're welcome to pay a king's ransom for a bottle the other side. #conspiricy @AmazonHelp the failed attempt was Wednesday. Spoke to a rep and arranged for today. Still no joy. @AmazonHelp I did, yesterday to Amazon Logistics who didn't attempt a delivery at my address. Re-arranged for today. Still no stuff.First time @AmazonUK have failed me. They've 'attempted delivery' (they didn't) and has been 'out for delivery' for four days. Time critialAnd that's another reason to stop using it, as if you needed one. https://t.co/01DApOSxG0There's always that one machine that will just not take the profile like all the others.

Ah. @MrJamesMay repairing a lawnmower. That's my kind of telly...I need to win some cash on the lottery. Not a lot, just enough to pack in the day job and start my own, and get a van. Yeah, vans are cool.The new #Twitter #algorithm that determines what it thinks I want to read first is just dreadful. I'd like real time back please.It would only beat the Mac if it ran OSX. https://t.co/3PQWWKVt9rI love ads that state "cheap easy repair", which means is neither cheap or easy to repair, or they would and double the price.
