Mega spoiler for ep. 10 (ie. last one for a few months)

ffs it's actually getting a bit ridiculous with the writing an plot holes. I mean seriously Hannah or chuck could have called in a threat on the president & it would have been investigated and all would have been fine. Instead she wanders through the crowd and tries to fire a pistol at a sniper.

I think you're wrong, though. They've wanted us to think he's evil but I think he is just like Atwood. He's pressured to do the things he does.

Also, surely the wife of Kirkman was the one who took the bullet.

I've much not been in a mood to watch a lot of TV. I'm still behind on last season's shows.

I'm so very proud of my fellow Swedes tonight. This week every year, the Swedish Radio air a 144 hour continuous broadcast (6 days) on radio with the same 3 hosts to collect money for a "forgotten humanitarian cause". This year, the cause was "Children in war has the right to education".

The hosts sleep in shifts of 6 hours per day and are on air for 18 hours per day (which means at least 2 people are always broadcasting while a third is resting). They do it from a glass cage placed on a square in a Swedish city. This year, we brought in just over 49 million Swedish kronor which translates to $5.3 million or £4.2 million. Now keep in mind there are only 9 million people in this country. Wow.

Figured out how to get rid of the cats when they're annoying me.
Print something! Discovered earlier whilst printing a reference sheet for the rail station, as soon as the printer fires up, both of the cats scarper outside. :lol:

Good luck to you, when my printer kicks into gear both of them sit watching it, then wait until it pops out and attack what I've printed.

Probably because you aren't buying maker-approved ink, instead going for the cheaper, fake ones. Cats are capitalist like that.

This is a fairly new printer, I got it so i could print out some ideas for board & card games I had. It's still using the ink that came with it, read as: that tiny little diddy amount of ink they give you for free. So i expect it to run dry after just 50 pages or something :p

One for the Brits.
If you have bought your child (or yourself) a Chocolate Santa from the Co-Operative for the festive season and yet to eat it, please do not do so.

Someone has been tampering with them in the factory, and two of them have been found to contain a button-cell battery hidden within it, the two found came from seperate factories too.
Button cells have a tendency to leak or otherwise burn a hole in the stomach, intensives or oesophagus if consumed, and it can be fatal, especially in children.

I have spent much of my last week off of work re-researching seaplanes, VTOL and helicopters. Very quiet, blissful times.

And Microsoft is bribing me to do it. :) I earn 130 Microsoft Rewards credits every month for using the new Edge browser in Windows 10. It helps me pay my Hulu bill faster. Woo.

I'd be tempted to use Edge if I got paid to do it, but only if those points can be used to buy games and other things.

https://account.microsoft.com/rewards/redeem/all

You can redeem the points for Windows Store, Xbox Digital, Amazon and GameStop gift cards, as well as Xbox Live subscriptions, Starbucks, Hulu, Skype andd Groove subscriptions. Or you can enter contests, rent movies, or just donate your points towards charities.

Of those, Hulu is the only one I actually use (I pay yearly for Skype already). So through my usage I effectively get Hulu for almost 50% off.

They might be. They revamped the entire Bing Rewards system a few months ago. So far, it's okay. I don't love the browser, and despite the claims that it is faster, I find it to be a little chunky and slow. But, hey, if I'm going to kick back and watch a few hours of video, or spend a large chunk of time on one task in a browser, I might as well earn something for it. Edge is just good enough.

Most of my points earnings come from Bing searches, though. I need to try to get into the habit of using Bing on my android device. I'm leaving 3000 points on the table. If I started doing that I could cut my Hulu bill to almost nothing.

2016 has rampaged on.

Today, Carrier Fisher passed away, best known for her roles in Star Wars. Also today, the author of the iconic book Watership Down, Richard Adams, has also passed away.

2016 and being famous is not a match made in heaven apparently...
