I'm conflicted about Monzo. On the one hand big banks are pricks. On the other, they're basically just freeloading on the banking infrastructure built by the big banks. A recent example is them fucking up and putting pins in log files and forcing people to reset them at atms, none of which are theirs. In fairness they acted responsibly with the actual breach and disclosure, which is more than a lot of banks would've done.

I assume they pay Link or whoever for access to the cash machine network.

I don't know if you're joking but that post is riddled with inaccuracies.

According to Roger Waters there’s a good leisure centre in Mesopotamia.

It was only this year that I understood why the West Bank is called the 'West Bank'.

(It's on the west bank of the river Jordan.)

As opposed to the east bank which is called the NotWest Bank.

That's still freeloading compared to having bricks and mortar branches and infrastructure imo.

There must be somebody who has had their best wank on the West Bank.

N-Trance may have been thus styled so that people didn't think they were named after how you get into a building.

What the 'rinse hold' function does on a washing machine, and if you use it when you put washing on that will finish when you're not going to take it out you don't have to run your fusty washing through another rinse cycle when you attend to it.

Obvious? Don't know, but I've just learnt that Joe Rogan and the guy who does the weigh ins and pisses about at all the UFC/MMA things are different people.

Neither the person nor the things are obvious to me in that one.

Then I explained that the front piece [of a car] is the bonnet which is a word for a hat or headgear and thus it made sense that the other end was the boot.

The 'photo' in photography is about photons and that innit? Worked it out when thinking about photo luminescence (my watch glows in the dark). Takes 32 years to develop reasoning skills like that apparently.

It’s from the Greek ‘phos’, meaning ‘light’ originally, but ‘photon’ does share the same root. As do ‘phosphor’, ‘phosphorus’, ‘phosphorescent’, etc...

After doing some research for a spectacularly pointless post in Comedy Chat, I only just now realised that, three special episodes aside, I've not seen any South Park since 2001!  (Not an Obvious Thing, just a response to your post.)

Come to think of it, I probably haven't seen much Simpsons since around that time either.
