I swear that any Chinwag services will never give you a notification for anything that you don't ask for or can't turn off.

Also I'll respect my fucking users' decisions and not revert settings every so often hoping you won't notice.

Chinwag apps will respect your fucking decisions about what content you want to see, none of this "See less often" bullshit.

Yes, I had to use the terrible sites today and wow I'd forgotten how good we have it here, folks.

I'm going to find the person responsible for designing humans, and have a very stern discussion about sweat rash. I really feel like this is something that should have been rectified pre-production.

Went out to buy an $8 drill bit, came out with a Stihl 2-stroke blower. I still haven't done any drilling... But man is the yard clean :-)

I shouldn't be allowed out without supervision :-/

I spent the morning neck deep in crocodile infested water scraping barnacles off the bottom of a racing boat. How's your Tuesday shaping up?

Just what I need at the end of a 10 hour work day, the power is out with no idea when it will be back. Can't even cook dinner. Exhausted and hungry. Bah humbug I say. I'm buying a gas stove tomorrow.

I've been watching this great series where a guy builds a car from scratch (Mazda miata) explaining all components, how they work, and how to put them together. It's really well done. Cost me about $25 I think. Well worth it if you're interested in mechanics and engines. I'm learning a lot. Makes me want a bigger workshop :-/

Supervising and directing. Making sure I don't slack off. Making sure the job is done right. Good dog :-)

I need a landcruiser to go see all of the beautiful wild places. I need all of the money immediately. Maybe I'll embark on a life of disorganised crime

What kind of complete moron decides to work on Saturday even though they absolutely don't have to?

A fingerprint sensor on a phone is a wonderful thing... Until it doesn't work... Then it makes you want to smash the stupid phone I hate it so much

I think this is a work of deadpan comic genius.
