Re: Alexa

Doing our customary Saturday night lockdown quiz over Zoom with OH's family.

I said (loudly as a joke) 'Alexa - what's the capital of New Zealand?'

Much laughter - all of their Alexas heard me and gave them the answer.

Ours didn't hear me.

Apparently it's Wellington - not Christchurch. :fp

Re: Pulling apart a £339 anti-5G USB stick

Ah, Glastonbury! Why am I not surprised?
"Through a process of quantum oscillation, the 5GBioShield USB key balances and re-harmonises the disturbing frequencies arising from the electric fog induced by devices, such as laptops, cordless phones, wi-fi, tablets, et cetera,"

Re: Some neat movers in North Korea.

While we are on youtube, is anyone else having a problem where many of the vids they try to watch just play a very long advert? It started today I think.

Re: Some neat movers in North Korea.

They shouldn't have picked out the poor guy who got it wrong - he could get into trouble.

Mind you he would be difficult to recognise amongst that huge assembly. :cool:

Re: Seasonal Spirits.

Sadly I can longer partake of strong drink.

I have the odd beer from time to time but mostly Becks Blue 0.0% which isn't bad at all actually.

Re: Do Facemasks Work?

OH keeps making masks out of things like socks and T-shirts.

I don't really know why - she hasn't been within 5 metres of anyone for about two months.

I do the shopping and so on. If she tried to make me wear one of her creations I would - until I'm round the corner out of sight.
