DSTO is an acronym that some vets have been known to use. It means the dog is smarter than its owner.
I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society
When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision
BBC consultation on TV licences, Call to Action for UK peeps
The Tories are trying to force the #BBC into paying for free TV licences for the over 75s. This would cost the service £745m per year and effectively results in a 20% budget cut.

Brain: "Before, it was liquid and nice."
Brain: "The pot is steel, do not microwave."
Brain: "Induction burner on low."

Brain: "Enemy on left!"
And this is why I punched the coffee. Because that helps.

@nivex Years ago, I was unofficially assigned to support the most difficult person in the Networking group, someone who despised change. He didn't want his cheese moved, even if it simplified his workflow. He had his habits!
I learned that the only way to survive delivering the news of moved cheese was to AGREE with whatever wacky reason he had to HATE the cheese move, "but since that's what we have to do, let me show you new habits" and we were fine.
