LG U(+) is/ has roll(ed) out wifi on trains for those unfortunate souls who went with them.

I think. I saw a wifi sticker today inside a subway car.

What constitutes a post needing to be checked by moderators?  I replied to the person wanting advice about some Poly schools, amongst other things using a reddit link.  Is that bad?  :sad:

Why is youtube asking me to verify my age again? If I was old enough 12 months ago how could I possibly not be now?  :lipsrsealed:

It's like when we're asked for our diplomas and criminal record checks again.

"Yes, I'm still a graduate of university."

Can't immigration have a file on us with some boxes that are ticked? CO2 graduated X uni in X year. That's been confirmed. His 3rd job doesn't need an apostilled copy. His first job covered that shit.

Are you really trying to bypass bureaucracy?

Speaking of bananas, I wish there was a grocery store or market anywhere near me that sold bananas by weight instead of bunch. I can't eat 9 of them before they go too ripe.  :huh:

put your extras in the freezer and reap the benefits of delicious banana bread. If you don't have an oven you can make it in a crock pot or experiment with some dodgy stovetop baking.

Rice cooker banana bread is also a thing. I've made it. The texture is a bit different, but it works out. Lots of recipes online for alternative uses for a rice cooker.

You can make pancakes too. Bananas, eggs and some protein powder is delicious with some syrup on top.

Apparently you can also substitute eggs with bananas in many baking recipes.

I guess this could be good for the hardcore vegan or people with egg allergies. Or anyone who's just curious.

Banana pancakes do sound yummy. And I should invest in a rice cooker so I can try baking with it.

When you're teaching the kids about a new word, or some grammar are there pictures of certain people that you'll always use? Like, for cooking or chef, I will always us a pic of Ramsay.

Anyone else or am I shouting into the wind? haha

I remember in my first year, I went for a coffee with my CT and her friend who was an English teacher in another school.  My CT's friend was describing her school's NET:

"He's been here a few years.  He's nice but he kind of just sits in the corner and doesn't talk much.  I have to actively ask him to do things, he doesn't have much enthusiasm."

I remember thinking at the time, wow why would you bother being here just to be like that.  Seems so sad.

Fast forward three years and I'm exactly like that.  I don't know whether to laugh or cry  :laugh: :cry:

When teaching verbs to the young 'uns, I like using different Kirby sprites.

I have hundreds of pictures of her on a private folder at home. Very useful.

I get what you're saying, but she's certainly not unattractive.
