    Thanks?
    I’m far enough inland to be somewhat safe. A bit closer now to a roundish building of some fruit company…

  2. Brother Mugga says:

    Hang on, we jumped.

    Steve more so than others, it would appear.

    All the better to stalk little Timmy Cook.

  3. Steve G. says:

    Unless I become part of the foliage that surrounds the site, not gonna happen. Can’t see much from street level because of the trees and, you know, driving at least 35 MPH.

  4. Ace Deuce says:

    There’s a drone for that.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Is it the sound of Macolytes mumbling on about the Infinite Donut being ‘holistic’ and ‘centred’? Because I’m pretty certain I can hear that from Blighty.

  6. Ace Deuce says:

    You’d think that after all the years at Infinite Loop, they could have given the ring at Apple Park a twist so it would be a Moebius strip. Imagine having to walk twice around just to get back to your desk. With treks like that, they could have eliminated the fitness center.

  7. Brother Mugga says:

    Is it wrong that I get a tad ‘overheated’ at the word ‘Moebius’?

    Also . . . why was I anonymised in the previous, previous post.

    How rude.

  8. Nxxx says:

    Something in this eighty year old brain, tells me to wish our cousins a happy wotsit.

    Note:- Cousins are referred to in the Shakespearian sense of being Royal.

  9. Steve G. says:

    Given the current state of affairs (both governmental and non) on this side of the pond, would our Cousins consider taking us back for a few years?

  10. Ace Deuce says:

    I am currently accepting invitations for dual citizenship from countries that have some kind of functional government, preferably a form of democracy. The country must have access to garlic bread and electricity. Candidate countries also must have a preponderance of land more than 150 feet above the present sea level, so certain archipelagos in the Indian Ocean just won’t work for me.

  11. Ace Deuce says:

    BroMu, I remember that Nxxx was sometimes anonymised in the past, but seems to have recovered nicely. The problem might be your immune system.

  12. Brother Mugga says:

    ‘Tis true I have been feeling a bit lurgied of late, Ace. I can help you with the bread and spark, but not the elevation, alas (lots of lowland marshes around here).

    But happy getting-rid-of-us-by-sort-of-winning-the-second-English-Civil-War day anyway. I trust you won’t be reading this for some time, however, as you’ll all be out cruising the boulevards in a drop-top chevy while rocking-out to The Boss (which is how we presume you all live pretty much all the time anyway . . . please don’t disillusion us . . . it rains a lot here).

  13. Nxxx says:

    BroMu,
    The only difference is that we cruise around in Rolls Royces or Caterhams, drinking English Champagne (Well we are leaving the EU), smoking local grown skunk, except for teachers who are all billionaires and are compulsory excessive.

  14. Ace Deuce says:

    That billionaire teacher gig sounds like just the thing for me. Do I need some kind certificate or accreditation to do that, or will a reference letter from a former student be sufficient?

  15. Brother Mugga says:

    You just need strong arms to carry the huge pile of C£SH! . . . sorry, C$SH! back to your house. That’s right, a huge pile of C$SH can be yours if you just subject the very marrow of your soul to six hours a day of powerless erosion at the hands of Twitter-savvy teens. Did I mention the huge pile of C$$$$$$$$$$SH!???!!!!???*

    * Disclaimer: access to actual huge piles of cash may not feature in this offer.

  16. Ace Deuce says:

    I have a little admiration for those souls who have piles of cash to carry. The most remarkable are those who have found easy ways to accumulate large sums with almost no effort, yet out of the goodness of their hearts go on the road with a grueling series of seminars to share (for a small fee) the methods of their easy wealth, rather than stay home and enjoy the sound of raining money.

  17. Brother Mugga says:

    I could not agree more, Ace. What is more remarkable is how, despite having divulged to us the Ultimate and Complete Secrets of Success, they keep burrowing away and somehow find even *more* Really Ultimate and Complete Secrets of Success. Before proceeding to the Really Ultimate Honest and Complete Secrets of Success just a few years after that. And the more secrets they find, the more successful they are. So it really must all work.

  18. Nxxx says:

    That’s enough criticism but please help me with a future problem.

    Being incredibly rich, I have taken to using ten-pound notes as toilet tissue, well they are brown. Soon they intend to issue plastic notes with Jane Austen highlighted on them. How can a gentleman complete his toilet with plastic notes with a lady illustrated on them? Demnit sirrah, there are limits.

  19. Brother Mugga says:

    I too am incredibly rich, Nxxx, as we all are in Gravesend, of course. Can I therefore suggest you simply upgrade to a higher denomination, some of which are not only free of laydeeees but also of a more forgiving material. Moreover, with every flush you’ll be reminding the proles down the sewage-chain of their relative poverty.

  20. Ace Deuce says:

    If someone doesn’t stop him, the current acting (pretending?) president of the US, who also claims to be incredibly rich, will likely soon have currency issued with his likeness on it. Problem solved, Jane Austen saved (contrary to the will of Mark Twain, who was not a fan).

  21. Nxxx says:

    Ace,
    Try Austerity.
    The Chancellor of the Exchequer who introduced Austerity, the family owns the most expensive wall paper manufacturers in the UK and is extremely rich and the present posy occupier, nicely set up for the firing squad, is a multi Sterling pound millionaire. That equates to around forty-three dollars in your currency.

  22. Steve G. says:

    Is Austerity the sister of Faith, Hope, and Charity?

  23. Nxxx says:

    Steve,
    Only if the Food Banks are well stocked.

  24. Steve G. says:

    Maybe she could grab fruit from one of the trees around Apple Park. At present, she would only need to scale a short-ish construction fence.

  25. Steve G. says:

    It’s now easier: most of the construction fencing was removed from the north side of the campus (I drive past it on the way to the grocery).

  26. Ace Deuce says:

    I admire a person who can drive past trees overladen with fruit while going to a grocery store where one must pay top dollar for fruit trucked in from afar. That’s integrity—or maybe cowardice. I’m still doing the math on that one.

  27. Steve G. says:

    Ace, I have no idea if they are fruit trees or not. Having lived in a city for 16 years prior to coming here, I am about as far from an arborist as I can get. Plus, driving at 35mph or more doesn’t lend itself to careful observation of the scenery.
