The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
Be careful not to point out countries that are not as high as their leaders proclaim that they are. That is defined as 'politics', which is is inappropriate in the lounge.
The figures are provided by health professionals, not leaders; and mocking leaders (no matter their politics) is appropriate everywhere outside of Russia, the Middle East, and Asia -- where it may technically still be appropriate, but it's probably a bad idea.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I practically never have my phone in my pocket. It might be on table in front of me, e.g. if I have used it for some 2FA login on the Internet, but it might as well be at my bedside - I use it as my alarm clock to get out of bed in the morning. If I go to the supermarket, I rarely remember to pick it up. Usually when I go to work, I remember to put it in my backpack, but I don't take it out of there until I need it, which is quite rarely when I am at work. So it doesn't follow me to the canteen.
This is not because I "leave" it at home, or bedside, or in my backpack, but because I forget it there. I spend little energy on trying to forget it less. I grew up with a fixed line telephone, located in the hall, not in the living room. I am bothered by people who demand their right to disturb me at any time, or their right to, through the phone, disturb a face-to-face talk I have with somebody else: Very few if any of my friends ever ignore/reject an incoming call, no matter what we are talking about.
Forgetting to pick up my phone when leaving home is more a pleasure than a personal crisis (the way it is with some younger people). But the app wouldn't work for me.
A simple visit to the bathroom could spell disaster!
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
That is going to annoy SWMBO no end, she insists on reading every plaque she walks past and the text on the virtual is just too fuzzy. A museum tour can take all day and the British Museum tour has never been completed by us.
I usually find a nice comfortable seat by the entrance/exit and read a book for a couple of hours.
