    To be honest it sounds awkward... This evening, I asked Google if it/he/she listened whilst my phone was locked or even if switched off. My phone swerved answering 3 times, and on the 4th it shut down. I get that it monitors me, and am fairly ok with that, but to not answer when asked is naughty. I only asked on a whim as my wife and I were discussing it over dinner.

    Could you not retire to another room? Game, read or garage to engineer things with hammers?

    Will your travel insurance cover the extra costs?

    Congrats! It's also good that the progressive french give their female cops smaller and lighter guns, in case the proper ones get a bit heavy... 😂😂

    When I was a cop we had first aid refreshers every year. I first started and it was putting asters on and doing triangular bandages and how to dress a head wound. We hardly treated folk for such, and called ambo if someone got hurt on our watch... My last one, we turned up and the instructor said 'you know the basics, no one forgets, but you never use them. Society is changing and you really just nee dto learn to put Israeli bandages and tourniquets on. I can't teach you because it's not policy, but look in to it.' It's true. Anything serious I went to was a stabbing, and I carried said kit. Not for the scrotes that were fighting, but for me or colleagues that got hurt... That said, we got CPR and defib training which can be a true lifesaver. Do that if you can. Basic first aid should be taught to kids though, as agreed, and refreshers for society introduced too. People should have the skills to help people. My wife and I came across an old guy with a head wound on our honeymoon. He had fallen, and some random young folk (20s ish) had seen it but were clueless and had no kit. We were in the lakes and out with walking kit so I got the 1st aid kit out and patched him and assessed him, gave advice and he was ok. My wife had not really seen that side of me and said she was clueless as she's never been trained. Everyone should be. Edit, hedge and stunt replied while I was waffling...!

    That sucks. Do you mind disclosing what she's been diagnosed with? I've never heard of a requirement for orange lenses, and dad was an optician.

    Genuine first world problem, but my brand new smartphone is absolutely atrocious. Don't buy a pixel 4, guys. The reviews are accurate, but mine was pre-order. The camera is excellent, and that's about it. Really poor battery life and terrible WiFi reception. The swiping between apps is clunky, keyboard is a hair's breadth too small so typing isn't fun, and it's laggy when trying to punctuate. Screen brightness doesn't always go high enough either. I'm sure there's more, but really don't bother if you were considering one. Volume settings are cob too. Lastly, my fault for assuming it had, but you can't expand the memory, which it terrible as it only has 64gb on board. Well, 53 in reality...

    Glove recommendations

    If impacts from bb's are taking months to disappear - or not going away at all - I would be seeking medical advice... Gloves such as mechanix M pacts will help, but I've had 500fps shots to the bare hand at point blank (don't ask, was a long time ago in a safe zone and I almost made him eat his sniper rifle...) And that drew blood but was fine after a week or so. I really do suggest getting it looked at.
