    My guess is that a quarter wit would be half of a half wit.

    I'd guess a quarter wit only looks half of a direction twice. Shame it's not different quarters as they'd look the other way.

    Olbiar wins the prize. A quarter wit has half the brain power as a half wit.

    You know, I still can't comprehend why a lot of IT companies economise when it comes to buying equipment for their developers. I mean, it's like giving a carpenter a blunt chisel. I'm talking about under powered processors, stupidly small discs, and not enough RAM. Why?! You just know that people are going to start complaining pretty quickly, and with good reason. And yes, I really do need at least 2 (if not 3) large screen monitors.

    Sonuva... I just realized that I bricked my tablet because I tried installing the very wrong ROM into it-- I tried putting a Galaxy Tab 2 ROM into a Galaxy Tab 4!

    This may actually be recoverable, if I can find a way to charge the battery up (and GT 4 ROMS should be a lot easier to obtain than the GT2 ones are).

    I never found any mention of this but why are coffee cups always obviously empty on screen. It's not that you can't see the liquid, but they obviously weigh nothing when one is picked up. Always has driven me barmy. There must be an alternative

    Actually never mind. I just Googled it for the first time :p
    I'll read them later. I'm no longer unique.

    Why doesn't Mc dicks ever have those sleeves on their bloody coffee cups, like Starbucks, seriously come on,please instead of working for a better cup, work for a better ring around them, made out of paper, seriously think about the customer's own hand, or even offer to fill up their cups with ice!

    Why doesn't my sister take her dog into adoption anyways, she is the most irritationable person ever, just jumps into whatever without reading the warning lables though, we have her pet until she does come back to her vacation in a long time from now..

    I must be the smartest person I know.

    Not having read "read more" it took about 3 seconds to read that article.
    I hate short articles!

    You were waiting to post this one, huh?

    Can't really blame you, though. I'm more ticked off that retailers have become obsessed with the notion of holiday spending, to the point that they will ignore every holiday leading up to the next sales target.

    I have embarrassed myself three time of late, assuming that my predecessors knew what the hell they were doing.

    I have to assume that every person I am working with is an absolute idiot, and that saddens me.

    Possibly, but I think if you assume that generally people don't know what they're doing, you won't be far wrong. ;)

    How do they put TV meteorologists to shame?
    It's not fair.
