    Most of the time called football, unless you live in North America, where football is a sport where you carry the ball around more than you kick it.

    Or worse, get out and beat each other's heads in for not conforming to the same team.

    Soccer was fun to play in gym class, way, way back when.

    I preferred basketball in gym class. Or even dodgeball

    Gym class kind of sucked because at the beginning of every year it appears that I'd grow and I had no idea where my limbs were anymore. There was a lot of chasing after the ball when playing volleyball.

    Recently my smartphone fell out of my pocket so the glass became cracked. Went to the shop and of course it was out of warranty as I expected. They charged € 30 just to send it to the repair facility and came with a quote of € 198 to repair. Declined this rip off offer and asked to send it back to me.

    Some internet searching revealed that I could get the repair parts for € 40 including shipping so I ordered the parts and will attempt to fix it myself. Luckily it's a popular device and someone else already completely disassembled it and documented it. It looks tricky but my hardware teacher alway said: "no risk, no fun".

    Now just have to wait until I have my phone back and the parts arrive and see if I can get it to work. And try and get my € 30 back from the shop or from the phone manufacturer because seriously for that money they could've send it to china and have it fixed.

    Except that a hoverboard needs to be able to levitate on all surfaces, even those that aren't very magnetic in nature (i.e., other than metal, or against another polar oposide magnet). Side note: We've had maglev trains for decades, but only a rare few. They're very costly.

    Interesting twist regarding the smartphone repair. I received the parts and got a call from the shop to pick up my phone. They handed it over saying I opted not to have it repaired. However after opening the package I noticed that the touchscreen was replaced after all. So I now have a brand new screen without having to pay for it

    Still have the repair parts so if it falls again I can still repair it. Quite a nice turnout, there probably was a mix up somewhere but I mentioned both on the phone and in writing that I didn't want it repaired so I'm not paying if they do end up charging me.

    My mobile doesn't do anything but take and receive calls. Someone keeps calling me but I'm working so can't pick it up so I have no idea who calls.

    I'm going to want a new phone at some point.

    Well I'm from D'Burgh. The one and ONLY Burgh in the USA.
    Pittsburgh of course! Yinz talk about a bad day? How 'bout a bad last 6 months with these political commercials? It's bad enough that Mitt Romney goes over there and insults our British friends, but then he flies off to Israel and insults them there too! sheesh!
    ehh, all I can say in comfort to yinz is that YOU HAD HIM AS A GUEST for a day...

    WE'RE STUCK WITH HIM ALL THE TIME!
