Interesting question, what's easier to wipe from the screen, juice, coffee or beer?

If you have a Mac with the glass covered screen it is all much the same to clean off. With the plastic LCD screens I think that coffee with milk and sugar is the hardest to get off.

I rode my scooter to the hardware store and it was freezing. I had to put my rain jacket over my leather jacket to get warm on the trip back. A chilly 10C this Saturday morning in beautiful Downunder. Brrrr....

I did see a nice one but it was AU$36,000. Also Harleys are too big to get around to the back of my house without a lot of re paving.

A bike like that you don't park behind the house, you park it in the living room.

Only if
a) your GF/wife shares your passion for bikes or
b) You are aiming for a very quick divorce (aka being thrown out of the house)

And provided you can actually get it into the house. I can't even get my Vespa into my house so a Harley would have no hope.
I've got one of these

It wasn't a Harley, but when house payment #2 said "it's me or the computers", I had to make a decision. And, yeah, I do sort of miss her now and then.

Bah, asking a 'Geek' to part with the computers...
That's like asking a dog person 'me or the dogs'. To my knowledge in 99% of cases the dogs win.

And this is precisely why I now go out every 6 months, find a woman to hate, and buy her a house. Alleviates all that drama in between.

Snooker hero Alex Higgins has died.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-1297377/Alex-Higgins-dies-age-61.html

In the late 1970's I was working at a South London Conservative Club as a part time barman, and one evening when I was on duty, Alex was booked to do an exhibition performance. He turned up all casual, open necked shirt and no cue. I'll just borrow one of these he said and picked one cue at random of the rack.

He went on to play 3 games, whipping the top club player hands down, plus some exhibition shots. After a word with the Club President I was allowed to keep the cue he used which I have still got. It's not worth anything because I didn't manage to get him to sign it, but it's priceless to me.

RIP Alex, you gave a lot of pleasure to a lot of people.
