Washing machines which don't make a complete fucking racket
...bikes, folding bikes, scooters, those fake hoverboards, anything, if actual hoverboards were actually available I suspect that the general consensus would be 'No mate, shit for cunts make you look like a twat, would rather walk.'
I was thinking earlier how amazing it was that I was able to order a pair of wellie boots while taking a shit.
I guess some of us aren't as greedy as others and are happy with the advancements made by humanity.
Gonna have to buy one soon.
that would explain it
you could buy a noisy one and wrap it in insulation for a fraction of that.
how fucking annoying is the song it plays at the end of the load. It goes on FOREVER
Could treat myself when she is out.
it's far from it infact
here is a youtube video of it of course
we normally sing along like the washing is done now, its done its done its done, its time to take it out and hang it up etc etc etc until it ends
It's basically inaudible from the next room, even during a spin cycle.
I think the racket is often vibrations external to the machine.
Sorry I'm being a massive Theo.
Self seal packs that actually self seal. Fuck off little bit of tape, you're inadequate.
Seems like chucking clothes in soapy water and fucking smashing them about a bit in there and spinning the shit out of them so they're immediately out of shape could be improved on a bit no?
Something with cleansing lasers maybe?
Why can't you dry clothes instantly, too?
not really doable at home?
or is it?
home dry-cleaning unit.
amazed nobody has thought of it before.
can someone patent the shit out of this for me?
I've got some inventing to do
so we'll have to wait for some more to crash so we can reverse engineer them.
Either that or sign another deal with the aliens allowing them to probe humans in exchange for technology but hope they're a bit sounder about it next time.
In conclusion, no new good stuff in the near future
the vibrations from the engine were just too loud :(
but seems to be noiser now.
I think sexybum's right about vibrating things around it but I also wonder if they get louder as they age and things (presumably) begin to get looser.

that is priced competitively with your all your AB-Inbev shite. I realise it's probably impossible thanks to economies of scale, but still, a shame.
Seriously though, in the US, where the whole beer thing is far better developed than here, there is this whole middle band of reasonably priced, good stuff, that we're totally missing out on.
It fails on two counts!
Beer is traditionally made with barley. However, because grains like wheat are cheaper, some breweries use it as an adjunct to fill out the malt profile (Budweiser uses rice).
There are obviously wheat beers, but even they are only about 50% wheat.
...or the tax levied on alcohol in this country vs The US?
You still get really cheap beer hear, despite taxes. And you still get some very expensive beers in the US. I don’t know all the ins and outs, but there are other costs in the US such as the complex distribution system and specific state duties and levies. But they still have manage to sell beers like Sierra Nevada for less than $10 for a six pack. I bought a sharer bottle of Laguntias Imperial Stout in a petrol station for less than $5. We don’t have any equivalent mid-level stuff - even something like BrewDog or Camden, which has scale and big ownership, you’ll still pay something like £6 for four small cans, a big step up from £4 for 4 Stellas. I know part of it is marketing and maintaining a status, but it seems a shame we can’t have some easy-drinking, low cost, quality beer (I still buy cases of Kronebourg and stuff for everyday drinking, would just like something a bit nicer).
...the mid-range beers on offer here are just slightly different? For example, you can get a Spitfire/Old Speckled Hen/London Pride for £1.50 a go in a lot of shops and that's 500ml of beer compared to 12 fl oz for US stuff.
Maybe I'm just waiting for "craft" brewers to reach the scale of the family brewers, if not the conglomerates. It would just be nice to get down to a quid a can for something genuinely good, but I accept, good stuff costs more (like, hops are really fucking expensive, so if you use more than a homeopathic amount, the beer has to be priced accordingly).
...and if Brexit has taught me anything, it is indeed the only thing, that the Poles have done for us it's that there is now plenty of tasty beer for a quid a can in most corner shops.
Without you ever developing a tolerance or some other associated problems with having too much of a good thing.
But you can only go forwards in time.
in the space time context.
to show that you are fractionally younger if you travel in a jet in one direction around the earth.
The twin paradox? Take two identical twins, one stays at home while the other flies around the earth in a spaceship. Yer man who's been on the spaceship has aged more than the fella who's stayed in bed. Or something like that.
Pretty much went over my head at the time like
I can't recall if the plan has to fly against the earth's spin or with it. I think it was against so that the relative velocities were a lot higher. We're talking a difference in 10^-12 seconds or something, though.
you haven't even pointed out that that's not a paradox.
Are you okay?
