Dumb Questions Amnesty


#4283

It’s one of the questions on my housesitting checklist - what colour lid for which type of bin. Changes like crazy from house to house!


#4284

What was the name of the old online mp3 player?
Not a file-sharing site like napster or limewire, just a player.
It’s driving me crazy.
Looked kind of like an 80/90s ghetto-blaster on your screen.


#4285

Winamp?


#4286

You rock.
Thank you.


#4287

Beat me to it.

Have used it for 15 years & still do. Best of the lot.

In the Classic Black interface, … always.

And always configed thus.

I’ve always wondered why the Australian womens cricket team play for the Ashes and not some other trophy named after Australian/English former greats


#4289

While I can see what you’re saying about The Ashes, I think that’s a smaller problem than the one you’re proposing.


#4290

Yeah maybe. Just seems strange that the Women want their own national identity and then go and use the “Ashes” which is the most prestigious trophy in men’s cricket.


#4291

Winamp

It really whips the llama’s ■■■

Why is a television called a telly and not a vision whereas a telephone is called a phone and not a telly?


#4293

‘tele’ has nothing to do with vision - but with long-range transmitting. So ‘television’ - transmitting vision.
‘Telephone’ comes from ‘transmitting sound’ - ‘phon’ being sound.

If colloquialisms were consistent, it would be ‘Viddy’, & ‘Phoney’.


#4294

There’s always one who spoils things with pesky facts …


#4295

Viddy well, little brother.


#4296

All those people that you see with Gucci/Louis Vuitton bags and such, what proportion of those are actually legit brand bags?

And who would strut around with a fake one knowing that it’s fake?


#4297

I would estimate 20% are legit at best.
And it’s probably the same people that go to Bali and buy 10x pairs of genuine sunnies for $8 :joy:


#4298

My cousin buys knock-off products. His philosophy is, it helps feed strugglers, and denies the multi-nationals. So he gets these fake watches and caps and other stuff from Bali or wherever.


#4299

You’d be surprised, in my experience

My sister in law used to be into all that ■■■■, leaving a trail of maxed out credit cards behind her.
Some of the AAA grade knock offs are almost indiscernible from the legit.

Problem is (unless you’re worth $10M), you’re too worried to really use or wear whatever it is.
She always got a good knock off to use day to day, and the legit ones for Friday/Saturday night.

I remember buying a heap of fake versace, gucci, burberry t-shirts in bangkok a few years ago. We stopped over in Singapore on the way home and l wore them into all their shops in Orchard road just wanting someone to say something, but not a peep. Always wondered if they really couldn’t tell or if they couldn’t be bothered with me.


#4301

How sick of being asked if they’re okay would people named Annie be by now?


#4302

On a related note, all the people who live next door to an Alice, have had great mileage over the years
