Just a Minix, that's too easy...

This in a country that tells someone that the state will kill them, sometime, eventually, when it finally decides that it can, and then seeks inventive ways to carry out the sentence after a person has spent years on death row.
Hypocritical, to say the least - Frozen should be the least of their worries
Freeze the thing in a domestic freezer. When time to cook, cover two Mars-bars in liquid nitrogen and, when down to temperature, remove them from the liquid and shatter them with a hammer.
Place the shattered Mars-bars atop the frozen Yorkshire-pizza thingie, and immerse in a thick beer batter.
Remove coated delicacy from batter and deep-fry.
Server together with Tennant's Super or white cider.
Let's not forget the "supercilious, formalistic silly words surround us" form that pops up at every mention of the West Coast.
I prefered the sarky headlines - but someone seems to have taken to heart the old saying "sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." Whether the saying is true or not, I's like to see more of the sarky taglines!
I have a Note 4, and whilst I like the stylus, in most circumstances it is just a "nice thing to have."
However, there is something for which i have found it essential:- correctly entering Vietnamese text into Google Translate.
For those not in the know, Vietnamese uses the Latin alphabet with diacritics marking the tones, inflexions and guttural stops - having the wrong accents on your text will completely change it's meaning. Since camera input does not work, being able to write the word is very useful, and saves trying to remember the keyboard trickery required to get the right diacritics in the appropriate places.
Since I am married into a Vietnamese family, this is a life-saver!
Niche perhaps, but suits me!
I have always thought that the only thing worse than a cold seat is a warm one, since that normally implies that you are a follow-on visitor...
That said, having encountered one of these beasties some years ago in a Japanese-owned hotel in Vietnam, I was left thinking that a small screen on the cubicle door running an animated instructional video might be amusing - just think of the fun one could have with the graphics!
Perhaps it's a fridge for smart beer...
I would assume that smart beer would contain a "chemical fingerprint" (a la smart water) that would only be apparent once the beer rental period was complete. A quick flash of UV light on the walls and pavements near pubs would show the "audit trails" and allow the problem to be traced back to source.
Now, combining this with the "quick jolt of 230V" mentioned elsewhere and you have a self-correcting and auditable scheme for tackling this particular anti-social habit. But I digress...
