There are four species of Mambas (snakes of the Dendroaspis genus, which means "tree snake"). The "Black mamba", which doesn't live in trees despite its family name, is grey or brown. Sounds like a question on QI: "What colour is a black mamba?" Cue sirens and -10 points to Alan Davies. Black mamba pic [^]
DONT GOTO ??? how is that a thing? ... is it bad practice to use them too?
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
With Corona having a virus and all, there are fewer workers putting the iPhones together, which is creating a potential shortage. Will folks have to come up with a new addiction, or ::gasp:: keep their current one a little while longer?

I'll sell you mine for the right price. Seriously, the only reason I have a phone is for emergency purposes and the occasional customer call.
Well, let's change that, the reason I have an iPhone is because my teen daughter wanted one, then the wife got involved with getting the family plan under the guidelines of "as long as it does not cost more than the current plan." Yeah, we still had some price creep. Still waiting
So far, the only people who really call me all of the time are spammers. Other than that, I would be happy with a flip phone.

Perfectly legal. If it sounds ridiculous, remember that human ownership of anything at all is just as ridiculous. cats have just as much right to claim ownership of stuff as people do, and they're one of the few species we interact with (without massacering them) that assert their ownership.
But they have the common sense to only assert temporary ownership. As soon as they walk away from something, they relinquish ownership. Humans are much stupider than that.
My favourite quote from the article:
When the online marketplace noticed her outrageous claims two years later
Two years? Seriously? Given the number of offers on the site, that would mean that the number of employees dedicated to ensuring that offers aren't scams would be... lemme think... multiply number of pages by scanning time... carry the one... take away the number you first thought of... Oh, cool! It comes out at a round number!
The number of people checking that their customers aren't being conned is... Precisely Zero!
Looks like too much effort is put into scraping as much money as possible out of the site, and almost no effort is put into customer safety and requirements.
The "microsoft testing method" is not appropriate to an environment where people can do harm.
