Re: did anyone ever use these buttons the way they were intended to?
Well you can't play it in the hall way for health and safety reasons.

Tariffs are applied to a countries imports, not its exports. Countries don't set export tariffs ( except perhaps on things like natural resources ).
So if we decide to tax ourselves more on our imports of arse paper, then we will tax ourselves more.
However, we do not currently have a free trade agreement with the USA or China. The EU's only involvement in our arsepaper trade with those countries is that it insists that we tax ourselves for buying it ( assuming arsepaper has a non-zero tariff, I'm not sure ).
I'll say it again because people seem to be struggling with this; If we import something from abroad, we can decide what the tariffs are. That is a tax that we charge ourselves on imports from abroad.
We can set those tariffs at the WTO maximum, at zero, or at anywhere in between. Those tariffs being how much we choose to tax ourselves.
I wonder why they would pretend to think that Germany would refuse to sell us arse paper if we were to leave the European Union.
Also The top two producers, world wide are China followed by the USA.
Hey look I got a downvote from somebody who also wants to pretend to think that Germany, Japan, USA and China (amongst others) aren't going to sell us arse paper.
Still in college, two weeks into my first part time development job* as the only employee ( literally just boss with an idea and me ) and before I'd gotten around to setting up VCS or even backups and I deleted the whole lot of my work by mistake.
I had previously had all the files open but for reasons lost to the mists of time I had closed the text editor. Fortunately it occurred to m to dd if=/dev/mem of=~/mem and I stumbled across my files in one pretty much contiguous block. Two weeks of awful, terrible code saved.
That was the day that I learned that you cannot be overzealous about backups.
* How that company didn't go bust I don't know. I had very little idea what I was doing and the "firm" eventually hired another developer who was even less competent than me. It's still going and doing well as far as I know. I feel shame that people are likely still working with/on the code that dribbled out of my eighteen year old brain.
I recently bought myself some wireless earphones ( Soundpeats Q12+, £25 on Amazon, decent reviews and I like them ).
Anyway, I found them to be far better than wired headphones when running - no wire to get snagged and on a treadmill I don't have to have my phone bouncing around in my pocket.
Why risk it? What if they are on the same network and this particular crash causes an infinite loop that floods the network with activity?
They probably aren't and it probably won't, but I'd rather not try to find out at 30k feet.
Or less urgently but he might find himself introduced to the emergency exit for it: what if he broke the entertainment system for everybody on this long haul flight?
"We also now know from local police that this is funding further criminality in London, from drugs and trafficking to possibly violent crime," Pascall added.
How, pray tell, could this possibly be related to trafficking.
Perhaps, I suppose, the crims will celebrate by purchasing some recreational drugs.
"National lottery funding Champagne and cocaine industries, campaigners warn".
( Ok, I made that last one up )
Slightly niche, but about 15 years ago I had my workstation's SIP client ringtone as the brain from The Mighty Boosh saying:
This is, my friends, an outrage!
I think that might be the exact video I ripped the audio from.
I would agree, except Guinness and port do go very well together - either Guinness then port, or a Guinness with a shot of port in the top.
Switching is good with a meal though - couple of pints before, switch to wine with the meal and then switch to port with the cheese course, then brandy after.
A straight drinking sesh has a natural order of things.
Having just been through trying to buy some decent football boots, I did wonder why Sports Direct and similar didn't sell the top of the line ones.
The same when I buy new rugby boots - you have to use the local Sports Direct to try on the rubbish model of the same boot then buy the proper ones online.
... and if you wanted to update your Facebook you had to phone it in, somebody would dictate it and post out hand written notes to all your friends.
Phones didn't have cameras so you'd just give the caption, eg:
Further to that, generally in the UK only the sockets circuit is a ring. Usually either one ring per floor or one ring per house. Mine is wired as one ring per house although I'm thinking about splitting off the upstairs onto its own ring at some point.
Everything else is generally radial - lighting, electric hobs, ovens, etc.
