Religions have a history of trying to keep the agonies of marriage between a man and a woman through legislation. This isn’t just a selfless act of kindness you may expect from organisations that regularly convince their poor, stupid members that tithing to them is a great idea.
Most married people will denote their status with a ring, necklace or the dead eyes of a crushed soul, yearning for freedom.
So when the religious priests go out on the pull, to gay nightclubs, pub car parks, airline cabin crew training courses etc. they can look for the rings and steer clear of the breeders who are not worth talking to.
If the gays (or to use the correct term, “the gayers”) were allowed to marry, those religious types would have a harder time to identify cuddle buddies, and probably just head for the first person under 12 they saw instead.
National Express West Midlands, in addition to the error of creating a bespoke Swift card system instead of using standard contactless cards, entertain the crowds by pushing XML live that they haven’t tested on a local browser. Computer says “I’ll do my best!”.
This post apocalyptic looking traffic light panel (don’t worry, it’s just what Halesowen looks like) needs a cancel button.
Stand by traffic lights, grimacing at the fumes and noise.
Press the magic button, multiple times, because you don’t trust the feedback given.
See a gap in the traffic, peg it across the road, inwardly congratulate yourself on saving 30 seconds of your life you can spend surfing reddit later.
Shamefully glancing behind you, watch as the lights turn red and all the cars obediently stop, even though no one now actually wants to cross.
Wish there was a cancel button you could have pressed when you got to the other side so that the 5 cars now waiting could have spent 30 seconds extra surfing reddit when they got home.
Now admittedly, there are probably a few more scenarios here to consider, but since the morning rush hour lasts approximately until the afternoon rush hour, every piece of optimisation is useful.
