  1. Happy birthday

    There's a proof in maths/statistics that shows the probability of any two people in a group sharing a birthday reaches 0.5, or 1/2, when there are just 23 members of the group. Feels nutty when you first hear it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem
  2. Doctor Who

    He is very good in sex education so if he brings some of that same energy he'll be great. I'm looking forward to it.
  3. Home Improvement / DIY

    I bought a pressure washer recently. It's satisfying to use but, if anyone else cares, you should wear waterproofs when operating one.
  4. Job woes/wins

    We had new staff photos taken at work and the photographer, who made everyone else look great, has made my forehead even bigger than it is in real life. Very disappointing. Or maybe I have a distorted sense of my own fivehead.
  5. UK Covid booster programme

    I've had the Pfizer jab three times now, and each time I've had a sore arm. Maybe a bit of a headache too, but I'm having issues with my glasses at the moment so it's difficult to say whether it's my glasses or the jab.
  6. General Movie Thread

    Can't they just let Jurassic Park die? Does anyone even like them anymore?
  7. What Have You Bought?

    The LCD screen on our thermostat just died over time. I did this weird thing (following a youtube tutorial!) where I dismantled it and heated it over the toaster, which revived it for a few months, but it's died again and the toaster method borked it more. Bought a smart thermostat and it's all set up to be controlled with an app or the google minis around the house.
  8. The Disney Thread

    As we get older, the proportional difference between our ages tends to 0. :-D
  9. The Disney Thread

    Teenwolf vibe to me!
  10. Office Chairs

    Currently looking into getting mine reupholstered, because all the pandemic WFH has not been kind to it.
  11. Tech Pouch

    Not quite as useful these days as it used to be, but I always have a USB thumb drive on my keyring. And my second suggestion might not be techy enough, but I often have a philips head screwdriver and two Allen keys with me (the two sizes I have seem to fit nearly everything).
  12. Do you know what you're doing?

    Nah, it's not quite to that extent, but it's just a kinda gulf mentally.
  13. Do you know what you're doing?

    "Just" a few grand over a couple of months.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    You managed to get a GPU from somewhere? Crazy times for graphics cards. It's almost okay if you're upgrading because your old card will also sell for more than it's worth. I was subscribed to all sorts of stock notification places and managed to grab a 3070 at the start of the year.
  15. General TV Thread

    Did you persist with Cobra Kai? I thought the first couple episodes were weak, but it got so much better. Wife and I blitzed it in a couple of weeks. Lots of nostalgia if you liked the movies, and it's great TV if you're willing to dismiss that thought in the back of your head about how unbelievable all the karate fighting really is.
