Post-pub nosh neckfiller: Southern biscuits and gravy

Paris Hilton

SWMBO is from the south

Well, further south than yours truly. She likes biscuits and gravy and i've had it a number of times. Biscuits (if not hard and bricklike) should be split, laid on their backs, and then splooge your white-ish

gravy over them. Yeah, sounds like food pron.

Now car hackers can bust in through your motor's DAB RADIO

yes, yes, but....

If you don't let your underpowered measly little engine talk to the radio and broadcast those nice rumbly sounds as if you've got a real motor under your bonnet... it just HAS to talk to the radio; even when it's turned off...yeah, that's the ticket.

Oh, and some of the new vehicles that will stop for anything in front of them...they're already all set up to assist carjackers and kidnappers... just walk in front...car stops. simples..

You're lucky

At least it's not the old style tin that required a small key (usually attached to the bottom of the tin) with which you peeled off a slim ribbon of steel and usually a piece of your own flesh if not careful.

Once popular with coffee, sardines (longer key) and similar products... yeah, i'm old.

Re: What about the increasingly vertical frontal aspect

The vehicle manufacturers have been forced by government regulators to make their sprog with the increased vertical you whinge about in order to REDUCE pedestrian injuries (so that idiot wankers playing with their iToys are not rolling up the front of the vehicle and bouncing over the top). Bikers are just an added bonus.

Re: And the Police didn't shoot him dead?

Well, in spite of your bias and prejudice, the police in the states shoot and kill far more whites than blacks. it's just that there's not a march and a riot every time it happens. And no, i'm not going to bother looking up the percentages based on crime, population or anything else... You have interwebs to search that info yourself.

The slow strangulation of telework in Australia

earl grey
Bronze badge
Flame

welcome to the united states of australia

Large population centers poorly served with un-caring monopoly providers filled in with sparsely populated areas filled with myriad small towns unlikely to be serviced by anything faster than a carrier pigeon. A few very lucky areas who have been google-networked; but even news on that has been quiet lately. A curse on all the politicians who allow this mess.

Women are fleeing from the digital sector, reckons UK.gov report

spent the last 45+ years in IT

Not all of it doing the same thing. Some operations; some coding; some support - you name it. Have seen a lot of very qualified women on the job over those years; as well qualified and capable as any male IT grunt. Also seen a lot of totally unqualified men and women who should have picked another line of work. IT happens. Two of my daughters have gone into IT and I can only hope they stick with it and keep updating their skills. There are careers, but tiny things like what we see from massive companies like Google to not encourage me that they are at all serious about hiring and keeping more female IT personnel. The biggest problem in the US is the H1B crime committed by a lot of large corporations in hiring personnel and firing experienced folks (I'm looking at you Disney), and the tax laws that allow large corporations to outsource their IT personnel, steal most of their pension and generally shaft them and then write off their "hired out" workers (literally every company that outsources their IT who used to be in-house employees).

Verizon: fibre is MUCH cheaper than copper, we're going all-FTTP

There's only one reason to tear out copper

So they can get out of requirements for emergency phone services and try to force everyone to limited time on fibre or no access at all on cellular.
