Wait... Is this saying that the Apple watch is not a luxury watch? Or that you could now do double luxury on your wrist? 😉
 
So this is, apparently, A Thing. 

Um...
Persuading traditional watch lovers to switch to a smartwatch is part of Apple Watch's lingering challenge, but one luxury timepiece firm thinks both on one wrist is the answer. California-based Ni...

No. I think it is saying that it's the only way the Apple watch will work... #snigger

Have to try this out.
 
How to stabilize a wobbly table? 
You are in a restaurant and you find that your table wobbles. What do you do?  Most people either put up with it, or they attempt to correct the problem by pushing a folded table napkin under one of the legs. But mathematicians can go one better. A couple of years ago, four mathematicians published a research paper in which they proved that if you rotate the table about its center, you will always find an orientation where the table is perfectly stable.

did you not hear that's the first thing most people do? But they don't always work as he explained. I'm going to have to try this out back at the office. Spilt half of my tea on a wobbly table. Put a load of paper towels underneath which works for a while then it starts wobbling again.

My daughter has been nagging me to take her out on her new bike. I couldn't really run behind her as she rides so decided to get one myself.

Our first inaugural ride was fraught with incidents. All caused by my "misplaced confidence". My bike was delivered by courier so I had to assemble it. The last time I did this was in my university years.

Can you spot what's wrong with my bike? I later found out after taking this photo!

About one mile from home I put the rear gears into position 1 and kicked off to engage that gear. There was a crack followed by a series of clattering sounds before the bike came to a stop.

The rear gear unit had managed to poke through the spokes and was now completely mangled. 😥

Sounds plausible. After all we do move our eyes in certain directions to recall memory.
 
Promising therapy for trauma
Moving your eyes from side to side might reduce negative memories.

I've heard of a saying "those of knows or have got it don't need to show" - don't remember where I heard it from though.
 
If you were genuinely happy with yourself, why would you feel the need to constantly boast and seek admiration from others?

The Abandoned Shuttles of the Soviet Space Program
Derelict spacecraft gather dust and bird droppings in a Kazakhstan facility.

See, if I was an indie film-maker with scifi ambitions, I would pack my bags, go there and film a low-budget but impactful little movie about a bunch of homeless who take refuge in the abandoned space shuttle complex, and have some very interesting things happen to them.

What a story.....looks like people like inequality....
When Dan Price announced he was setting a minimum salary of $70,000 for his 120 employees, he didn’t foresee the turmoil it would cause for his business.

We need more of this. Reminds me of what Mark Shuttleworth did.

I'm not falling for the cream/jam arrangement argument 😉
This was at The Tea Terrace, top floor of House of Fraser in Guildford. The whole setting is very Alice in Wonderland.
