I almost stepped on one when exploring rock pools at the beach when I was a kid. Mind you, in Australia, just about everyone has a similar childhood near miss.

Topic: Difference between baththub and shower bath
Posted: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 11:19:29 AM
In Australia, we mostly speak British English. I agree with Sarrriesfan that a shower bath is a hybrid product.

I'd have a bath in the bath (or bathtub).





I'd have a shower in the shower.





Or, I might have a bath or shower in the shower bath. I'd only use the term shower bath if I were talking to a plumber or interior designer. In conversation, I'd just say I was going to have a bath/shower.





This bathroom has a bath & shower, but it's not called a shower bath.

Topic: Words Within Words 100% Club
Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2018 12:51:16 AM
Something weird is going on with the neurons awarded for hitting 100% in Words Within Words. I sometimes get 100 neurons, but only every few days. If I get 100 neurons, the next nine games are worth 15 neurons, then 1 neuron each after that. Other days, my first 100% is only worth 15 neurons.

I play pretty much daily & hit 100% multiple times per day. Since I noticed this glitch, I check my neurons after every 100%.

What is going on with the neurons, Admin?

I first reported this in 2014. Admin isn't very helpful. I don't think they read the forums at all! Brick wall

When it happens to me, I do something else for a while, then go back to WWW.

My late Nan had a saying: "Did somebody die? You're sailing at half-mast!"
Translation: It's time to go shopping for a new bra. Whistle



I'm with Epiphileon: I've never heard of sailing at half-mast as a sign of distress either.

Topic: European Heat Wave: UK's Hottest Day on Record (2003)
Posted: Friday, August 10, 2018 1:05:45 PM
The hottest I've lived through is 46°C in my Sydney flat. I resolved to kill myself if it ever got that hot again! I'm of Anglo-Celtic ethnicity - I should be in Ireland or Scotland. I'm so jealous at reading their record temperatures. I wish I could afford to migrate between the hemispheres to escape summer forever! I'm happy it's winter here now! Dancing
