A while ago I had a thought, today while out getting lunch I saw it in action.

With the advent of smaller and smaller technology, in particular for this example bluetooth phone headsets, I wondered whether people's opinions would change.

As the old saying goes, the first sign of madness is talking to yourself. I've often wondered with the more widespread use of the bluetooth headset, and it negating the necessity of having a phone on view, whether talking to oneself in the street would become more socially acceptable

On my way to the sandwich shop at lunch, there was one of the local care in the community guys (not sure the PC way of describing people with disabilities these days) wandering down the street, minding his own business, quite happily having a conversation with himself.

A bit further on, there's a woman, in business suite with attache case and a purposful stride, for all intents and purposes talking to herself and gesticulating as she's walking down the street. Granted on closer inspection you can see her headset tucked out the way under her hair, but still, if you weren't to know, how would you tell the difference?

a bit chilly out there this morning. glad i decided to light the fire last night, the cars needed scraping this morning. Well, I started the Jimny and left it with the engine running, seems to do a better job and less likelihood of scratching the windscreen, mine's still sat out there with frost on it

Hey everyone, i'd like you to meet my new best friend. They called me up at 2am Thursday morning, and then again 4 times (!) at 3am this morning. I even answered them, only to discover they can't talk, and so hung up the phone

I'd encourage you all to call them and say Hi, I'm sure they're really a great person

Phone number is 07807 824133

Don't worry if it goes to answerphone, just leave them a message, I did, several times...

Blizzard are shite

Their patch downloader is really shite

Not only does it assrape your connection of you don't watch it, it has currently downloaded 505Mb of 'something' to get a 276Mb patch file

WTF?!?!

Unsure whether to use my wtf, or my gaming icon...

To blizz

Get your act together you gnomeshaggers, and while you're at it, stop the wazzocks from sending 'buy wow gold now' whispers.

BBC news website for Scotland contains this entry, new jobs for scotland. Shame the stock image the bbc have used contains 'advertising' for NCR, who are in the process of laying off a large number of workers in Dundee...
