@kcarruthers This is bullshit. We have plenty of cheese, it’s unhealthy anyway. It’s disgusting that people are even spending time on this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@kcarruthers WTF? It’s “urgent” that we change food standards to allow a particular kind of cheese? How self-indulgent is that!

via Twitter Web Client

You know @drearyclocks, everyone @replying to me at the moment should realise that I’m imagining them in a blue lycra unitard.

via Twitter Web Client

Ah! Someone points our that “content” is the wrong word. “Hey whatchya doing? I’m lying on the couch watching some content.” Sure.

How many times do these execs need to hear “wait for the microphone” before they understand that they need to wait for the microphone?

Someone just asked whether we would ever have satellites without latency issues. Um, the speed of light, Sir?

Maybe someone in the National-held seat of Cowper should teach students to not stand underneath bats.
