Why doesn't Hawking get an update on that silly voice he uses? Is he still running it off of MS-DOS or something? That's strangely annoying.

Apparently he was offered an upgrade, Windows 10 or something, but he turned it down. He droned that the voice is recognizably him and he didn't want to change it.

Siri he ain't.

He probably shouldn't try voice recognition personal banking.

For the future don't bother with the BBS search, use Google. For example, type without the quotation marks "site:cpfc.org Mamadou Sakho"

might be worth remembering some search operators to narrow down the results

I can confirm that there isn't a village in the UK called Ucking if that helps.

Half a dozen white lids taking the bus from Bromley to the college speaking like they were 'black gangsters' and just being obnoxious twats. It will really help them get a job one day.

It was either Ucking, or Hucking as you were near the border with Kent. That was in the 1970's when I used to see it. Probably the PC police have taken it down since then :D

local social media (which I gave up on) where 'news updates' included such things as:

I made my child's packed lunch
I took my child to school
I met other parents at school

(^^you can see where this is going ^^)

You have a child. Now bore-off. Your life is over

Just had an arguement at work with someone who thought Eire was part of the U.K. At first I tried explaining that he was wrong and showed him a U.K Wiki page and followed that up by showing him a map of Eire showing the border with N.I. He replied with 'So technically, I'm right 'cos they're joined'
So in summary things that annoy me today are,
1) Stupid people who refuse to accept they're wrong
2) People who think Eire is part of the U.K (I'm 2nd generation Irish and proud)
3) People who use 'Technically' in an arguement because they think it gives them wide ranging scope to talk complete and utter B***cks!!!!!
