    I imagine Nick's favorite food was "sausage"?

    Perhaps "spotted dick"...

    Didn't Netflix actually have a "test" movie that you could use to confirm your connection was working at one point? I seem to recall that.

    On the USPS item, that's probably not an error. I worked with a guy that when faced w/ these "Q&A" forms of account recovery would intentionally put (we'll say) 'brisk' answers. The idea was that it would protect against 'shoulder surfer' attacks. A phone call would go like this.

    Agent: "Who was your first grade teacher?" Coworker: "I'm not telling you my f'ing password." Agent: uhh... yeah, that's right.... "What was the name of your first dog?" Coworker: "I said quit propositioning me for sex."

    "What are you wearing?" "None of your business!" I'm tempted to use that some day.

    Remember the part where "secret question" is an awful security practice, thanks to people sharing so much on social media, and more generally many of the questions being easy enough to guess or find out for targeted attacks against high profile targets?

    I'd report the phone booth is in pain, but somehow I suspect the service technician would just dim the sign.

    Butter?

    molasses?

    Scunthorpe tea cakes?

    The other thought about the insecurity questions is that I have to fill out so many, that I will generally only remember the truth, the same truth my ex-wife also knows. At this point, I really do not want her having access to my on-line accounts.

    That DB2 history figure is easy to understand.

    Your see the clocks, they indicate time pressure.

    Below it, there is a bumble bee working on a yellow Asteraceae flower.

    Next to it, you see someone holding a coffee mug. With this context, you should know that it is filled with a calming chamomile tea.

    That's what you urgenzly need when working with DB2.

    maybe the phone is french and it just needs bread

    maybe the phone is french and it just needs bread

    As phones do.

    Maybe it's part of a scrolling display? But what would the original be? "Painless number porting" or something? Or potentially something in German, Afrikaans, or Oshiwambo?
