@KrazyKarl910 Well, I’m glad we’ve both cheered ourselves up here. We should have more of these uplifting little chats.

@KrazyKarl910 Maybe I should ask a Protestant. It’s probably less complicated for them. ;)

@KrazyKarl910 See, I’m sure that “smug” is a sin, or at least it ought to be. Is there an out in “Yeah, but it’s worth it”?

@KrazyKarl910 Indeed. Yet both major parties have painted themselves into a corner on this one. It’d take a strong leader indeed to change.

@KrazyKarl910 You and I are probably both committing sins now, Karl.

@KrazyKarl910 Now, it’s a bit Old Testament, but I’d not complain if there were a bit of turning-into-pillars-of-salt going on here.

@KrazyKarl910 True. I suspect Jesus didn’t pop thru with a jolly “I say, chaps, this sort of lark is just not on.”

@KrazyKarl910 My Biblical knowledge may be a little confused.

via TweetDeck in reply to KrazyKarl910

@KrazyKarl910 Yeah, it’s not really in keeping with the dignity of the calling etc, but then consider St Paul’s Epistle to the Arsehats.

Thanks, Twitter, but I wouldn’t follow @RichardMarlesMP if I were a dog who’d been drinking all day and he were the only tree.

What a cunt, @RichardMarlesMP. What a pathetic, morally bankrupt cunt. I’d spit on you if it weren’t a waste of good saliva.

@shuboogie @Savour_Life Good to hear. I tweeted that last night as I passed a poster. I guess someone should take it down.

@cczona I never go to the sponsored stream in conferences, unless there’s a star who can do more than re-bleat what’s on the website.

via TweetDeck in reply to cczona

@technofetishism It’s a close-run thing, I grant you. But at least the Twitter feed doesn’t have the self-indulgent staging.

via TweetDeck in reply to technofetishism

Vendor keynotes must have the worst signal-to-noise ratio and lowest bitrate of any form of human communication ever conceived.
