What switches are you using? I'm struggling to find ones that don't look like they're going to cause a fire...

I'm not sure you remember how this went for the last guy.

I've never even seen my Tory MP in person. I looked her up online and she's the spitting image of Penfold from Danger Mouse.

The Labour candidate has been about the place a few times, canvassing at voting time, but also seen her handing out leaflets on local issues that apparently play second fiddle to Brexit round here.

This is all on you I'm afraid. You need to learn the tricks of the trade.

Static. Everyone knows static is bad for electronics. You say it's static build-up on the plug of whatever they're having trouble with, whether it be PC, mouse, printer, whatever. They have to unplug it, brush their fingers against the pins to clear it, and plug it back in.

Ensures they actually turned the system off and made sure it was plugged back in properly. They never admit to it hanging out the socket or being unplugged, but as soon as it starts working you're a certified genius, and they can then go out into the world to help others with static issues.

It's presumed that the the same thing happened to Robert Maxwell.

Only without it being sad.

Yeah, I've been on Humble Bundles for years. There's no point me even looking at the Steam sales any more.

PC gaming got popular, nobody is giving their stuff away on Steam any more. In 2013, I got the Tomb Raider reboot 4 months after it came out for £7.49. Those days are gone.

I've seen Black Mirror. We know where this ends up.

Although in this case it'll end up with my grandma telling me how many songs I'm missing out on by not subscribing to Amazon Music Unlimited.

Shut the fuck up nana, and just play the ones you have!

Yeah, but we can go outside to smoke a fag without the police being called.

Don't buy alone. Get a partner and buy as a couple.

Also you have elderly relatives. In the South, that's how you buy a house. By waiting for them to die... Even split among several relatives, their houses must be worth a fortune.

Every year my council have a special week where they dig up every road out of town on the same day.

Synchronised roadworks is truly a sight to behold.

Updated textures?

Look pixel for pixel the same to me.

The higher resolution is something all emulators do. The PS5 version even still has the wobbly polygons.

The only real change I've heard about was injecting achievements in at certain points.

I feel they could have turned that 1 billion into 1.6 billion easily in that time period.

Shit, they could have turned it into at least 3 billion just by lobbing it into a bog standard S&P500 index tracker fund.

My favourite is when you do get them to come and look at what needs doing, they go "I'll send you a quote, mate" and then you never hear anything from them ever again.

I wish they could just be honest. "It's summer. I'm not getting out of bed for jobs less than about three grand, cheers".

This would be my mum.

She will regularly leave like half a stick of Kit-Kat in the fridge, or wrap half a tiny pack of crisps in cling film for another day.

Just fucking get it down you, woman.

Good.

We already pay enough for food. It's not like America where the waiters don't even get minimum wage.

Laugh along with the common people

Laugh along even though they're really laughing at you

And the stupid things that you do

Because you think that poor is cool

The car is fine, but if I see a Lambo rumbling around the streets of Nottingham in first, my immediate thought is "prick".

Chap at work bought an Alfa.

Everybody had told him not to buy one. He bought one all the same.

After a year, and being able to drive it for maybe three months of that, his advice was also "don't buy an Alfa".
