You know which one I support and it won't be the same one - how about I send you one of ours and you put it on your lawn to repel all boarders?if they don't hear from, they'll assume I'm giving consent and someone will come round to my house and just do it anyway .. WTF?
This sounds bizarre but at one time companies would send unsolicited goods to households followed by an invoice. If the household didn't send the goods back at their own expense within a certain time they were liable for the cost of them, on the basis of silence being consent.The old "silence is consent" thing has now been changed in data protection law - you have to agree actively to a website's usage.
Sounds like bullshit to me.
Say, for instance, the letter wasn't delivered, or received, or eaten by the dog. The householder suddenly discovers a sign planted in the garden. The householder would well be entitled to uproot it and hold it for collection - does the party seriously demand it put back?
Which also, IIRC, gave provision for a homeowner, should anything unexpected arrive, to just hold onto the items for 28 days (and advising the sender assuming knowledge of who sent it) and if they are not collected the homeowner can keep them.Unsolicited Goods and Services Act of 1971.
Got plenty to last me a while.I did not know there is a bad shortage of metal shipping containers.
This fact plus Brazil supplies the world with 40% of wood pulp, and they are having problems with covid is going to lead to
shortages of consumer products like toilet paper.
This must be true because one of my daughters needs a new refrigerator, and they are all on back order from
places like Home Depot or Lowe’s.
Check your toilet paper or paper towels stock !
they had a horrible "following" back in the day. Skinheads almost killing people,Today is a day of WTF for anyone who spends time on the UK subs of Reddit.
A fundamentally ill-judged admin appointment...Soviet levels of censorship, fundamental misunderstanding of the Streisand Effect, a membership in revolt....popcorn out, ride being enjoyed......I'm kind of loath to give details, but a quick look at the UK subs will make it obvious.
Excellent! We're in agreement then.While it's incendiary, and I'm happy for or to be deleted..
No, and this is the point. We try our best to keep Fortean material living even when it's as contentious as hell, but we are under no such obligation with non-Fortean stuff such as politics and that extends to race and gender politics. There are plenty of places on the net to discuss that, but this is not one of them....this isn't a Fortean thread, and afaik never has been.
I agree, especially when they're wearing almost comedy-sized headphones, completely unaware of their surroundings and ambling all over the pavement, into the road, etc.Anyway WTF ery....
I come out for a quiet walk and every time there's some numpty indulging in loud phone conversations. If you're very lucky they're not holding the phone up in front of their face.
Can these people not shut up for 2 minutes together..? It's not like they have anything worthwhile to say
It supposedly reduces the amount of radiation burning into your brain.I've never understood the 'thing' they do of wandering along, speaking on their smartphone while holding it like a teeny-tiny tea tray in front of their face.
Is putting the speaker to the ear and the mic to the mouth such a hard concept to grasp?
