British Mothering Sunday and American Mother's Day are 2 months apart, so probably not.

Piracy - 'You Wouldn't Steal A Car' by am0bishoproden in unitedkingdom

Even the word "stealing" is loaded in that context, stealing typically implies depriving someone of something, not the acquisition of something.

A Linux distribution built by volunteers for the NHS gets cease and desist letter from them and decides to shut down the project. by -TimeTravelling in unitedkingdom

Agreed, I think if someone released an open-source homeopathic phone app and branded it as "NHS" without permissions, they'd have got exactly the same legal notice, and there wouldn't have been public outrage about it.

Which is funny, because if the software in the article was given a free pass, it would have weakened the NHS's copyright and opened up the way for the theoretical homeopathic app to use it too.

Just increased my overdraft to £3000! I desperately need help to take control of my finances. by pigsplaytennis in UKPersonalFinance

There's nothing in that for food or any other physical items. Before you sort your budget out, you need to account for everything spent, you'd be surprised when you add it all up. Any other entertainment etc?

The most expensive game I've seen for Switch so far. (Ireland) by RGBSplitter in NintendoSwitch

[–]Skuld 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's got a bunch of in-game currency or something. There's a few tiered entries for it in the Switch online shop.

Seems like a terrible bit of marketing.

Yes, I will tell your child why she isn't getting Christmas. by atombomb1945 in MaliciousCompliance

It doesn't follow, but it increases the likelihood. If your parents can drink and find it pleasurable (rather than severe hangovers for a small amount), then you've likely inherited those genes. Not inheriting a related allergy will also contribute.

It's a complex micture of genetic, hereditary & socialisation factors.
