Re: Broom and cup problem

Yeah, you'd be having a fun day if the cup was made out of Styrofoam

Re: Man & Chair

Here's another possibility or two: He works for a company that has just moved offices across the street. In order to save on removalists, everyone was required to help move the office furniture across. When he realised he'd forgotten his chair, he went back for it, but didn't look both ways...

I have to wonder why we don't treat murder the same way we treat rape: as a completely horrible thing that is not a thing to be joked about.

"Thank you much"

At work today, I heard 3 different Independent people use the expression "Thank you(,) much" and I'm trying to figure out where this expression originated from, as I have never heard it before. Attention pedants: English is my second language, please try to answer the question rather than ...

Re: Antivirus program for windows yes? no? if so which?

Adblock Plus, Filterset.g, Siteadvisor should keep you safe against 90% of viruses before you get them. I would recommend placing a scanner on a jump drive, and using it (after updating it) if you happen to get a virus. I used to run two antivirus programs at once (one subscription) and with the pre...

Re: The single best computer food
