    The fee for paying in a foreign cheque is one Euro and fifty cents.

    So even waiting a month and probably getting a shitty exchange rate should leave me with a nice 'going away' present from HMRC, which arrived today.

    Unclogged the bathroom sink. Other than the hurl-inducing stench, it's nice to see the water disappear immediately.

    Other mental health issues can cause the same problem, as I know to my occasional cost.

    I get sarcasm, I just apply it very poorly. Very poorly. Ok, I sometimes get sarcasm. Occasionally.

    Oh man.

    I can't really describe it but when the sun is out all day it stinks of sun baked seaweed in the evening here. Kinda like a wet bog but almost sweet.

    God I love that so much I'd miss the crap out of it if I moved inland.

    I swear to god I suffer from S.A.D. it's amazing how a bit of sunshine and a pong changes my mood.

    So much this.

    I'd be up for a group buy of branded goods with "Let's Shark" printed on them.

    Snap... I've read things that discredit it as a concept, but dammit I swear it's a thing.

    Why do I get the feeling that googling "Sharking" or "Let's Shark" will necessite a quick browser history purge.

    Picked up a used ps4 for 166 USD on Ebay. No controller but we can remedy that. Am supremely happy. All the things got done too. Now to die under the new AC.

    Let's shark, indeed.

    First interview for a job went well, they've fast-tracked me and I've got two interviews back-to-back with my possible manager and director tomorrow afternoon.

    LOL was digging through a box for headphones and found this. I'd already smashed my front teeth on a bmx I then smashed out the rest a few years later again on a BMX.

    Lighter than it looks. The reviews were correct, it's far nicer quality than the Razer 1.

    It's very very fast. Benched it last night and it's in the top 2%.

    Came with the joypad too, bonus and looks lovely.

    Battery life average but then my Keyone was best in class for that but overall very happy. it's a lot of phone for £270.

    Even the lowest spec. of the two looks - on paper - more powerful than my whole PC... gettin' mad.

    ... and did I see that right - LIQUID cooling...?!"

    Nah, vapour chamber.

    That said it didn't throttle one bit whilst I was thrashing it with 3Dmark so it gets the job done.

    It's just so much nicer than the Razer phone. On the Razer phone the cut beveled edges are left raw. On this they've been anodised green as are the buttons which is a nice touch. It also has a minimal amount of plastic on it too. The OS is also worthy of mention as it's 99.9% stock vanilla Android apart from the gaming switch that has a launcher, disables all incoming Comms and clears the RAM.
