Hipster whines at tech mag for using his pic to imply hipsters look the same, discovers pic was of an entirely different hipster
Re: Why anti-conformists always end up looking the same
Yup. I remember at a large bike rally a small child was found wandering around early in the morning and was taken to rally control.
"Ok, lad? You've lost your parents?"
"What's your Dad's name?"
"Ok, and what does John look like?"
"He's got a bald head and a long beard and tattoos down his arms!"
"Let me take a guess. Is he wearing jeans and a black shirt and a leather jacket?"
"Yes, do you know him?"
YouTube's pedo problem is so bad, it just switched off comments on millions of vids of small kids to stem the tide of vileness
Oh no, look out, Google, Facebook, and pals. You're doomed. Here comes another watchdog to, er, nip at your ankles
OK, your boss allegedly called you a lazy n*****, promoted the person you trained ahead of you and paid you less, but you can't PROVE it's racism, Facebook says
Re: A Narcissist's Corporate Prayer
Reminds me of the Blues Brothers.
I ran outta gas.
I had a flat tyre.
I didn't have enough money for cab fare.
My tux didn't come back from the cleaners.
An old friend came in from outta town.
Someone stole my car.
There was an earthquake, a terrible flood, locusts.

Hungover this morning? Thought 'beer before wine and you'll be fine'? Boffins prove old adage just isn't true
Question or two...
"In the first experiment, 31 people slurped beer until their breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) measured 0.05 per cent, they then sipped wine until their BrAC increased to 0.11 per cent. Another handful of 31 participants repeated the same experiment but consumed wine before beer. The rest of the group, 28 people, acted as the control group and were only given one type of alcoholic beverage to drink."
How much alcohol are we talking here to get a BrAC of 0.11% ? Can different people get to the BrAC on different quantities?

"You see that bridge out there? Built it myself, hand laid every stone, and it's the best bridge over the river in 20 miles! But do they call me "Jones the Bridge"? No! And you see that house over there? I built that, took me two months, through rain, sleet and scorching weather, but do they call me "Jones the House"? No! And you see that farm over there? I run that, providing some of the best local produce in the county! But do they call me "Jones the Farm"? No!"
"but you fuck one sheep..."
Yes, you can keep the money...
I once got mailed a royalties cheque from the Musician's Union (I am a member) for a recording session I allegedly played on.
I rang and said I hadn't played on that session. Their response? Well, the paperwork has your name AND membership number on it, so keep the cash. There's nobody with a name even close to mine in the MU directory so... WTF?

Re: Office 365?
In my experience, SME is fairly new to the UK. It was prevalent in the US where SMB was the UK equivalent. Over the last 10? 15? years, it's now become more widely used.
Same goes for Chairman/Managing Director/Finance Director/IT Director type titles being replaced with US style designations (CxO).
