Oh, this is wonderful. No longer any need to fuss with topping up an Oyster card - just use your phone.

1) Topping up an Oyster card is not exactly hardship...
2) It's been possible to use credit cards on same basis for a while now...
3) Enjoy using the phone... :-)

Not the most efficient way of doing things.
 
Taking a couple days out to fuck about makes getting back into the groove a slow process.

+Maison Pulaski No, I think it is legit (although cannot be fully sure). A nice bit of physics in action :-)

Posh Carrot Cake

Not something you would usually find in a potting shed but it is actually a posh dessert called Reconstituted Carrot Cake which can be found at the Michelin-starred Treby Arms restaurant in Sparkwell, Devon.

After a brief EU flag-raising ceremony, I declare my Yurt / Man-cave as a separated state. Or something.

This is a wonderful retort.

A first year law school student wrote a complaint about her professor having worn a Black Lives Matter T-shirt during class. The professor’s response is priceless. Scans of the original letters...

They won't.

My guess is the aversion to the movement stems not from bigotry rather it stems from an inability to consider that anyone else matters at all.

Get paid for parking charges

Some friends have this taped to the inside of their windscreens to circumvent parking charges and indeed treat the placement of tickets on the car as entering into a contract which itself incurs the very same charges & contract law that car parks use. As a result they never pay for parking, lol.

The small print is particularly funny.

I think they look extra long because they have written down every half-step...but it does tell you that you undertake any such migration having thought about it VERY carefully... :-)
