Ive just looked into it, it's 'all paints' so im thinking.. i could open a can of Farrow & Ball (casual like) scan the colour with the B&Q mix your own paint machine and get a can of Mouses Scrotum for half the price Thumbs Up

Up here for thinking...down there for dancing

I think you’ve got your cyberpunk authors a little mixed up there.

Anyhow, agreed on LED lights. Great for bicycles & headlamps, not so much for cars.

I really need to sit down and read more of his work; I was on Do Android Dream of Electric Sheep? and then got distracted by something else.

On topic: LED headlights. I'm sure they're great for the pods using them, not so much for the other human beings.

You don’t want any of that farrow & ball rubbish. You want a nice ‘misty buff’

The new, bold shade ‘Extinction Rebellion’ is de rigeur in fashionable drawing rooms and communal living spaces these days.

I imagine the names of the colours are conjured up in focus groups curated by people called Ophilia or Fifi and her husband Rupert.
Its on offer ar B&Q (3 tins for the price of 2) I'm torn between Elephants Breath and Mouses Scrotum..

The former, Laura Ashley’s where it’s at if you want to keep it real.

In reality, I believe their USP is uniqueness of colour but Dulux will have a near-enough equivalent under a different name.

Don't get him started on using the Nike app to tell his shoes to tie themselves. Shoes that he needs to charge at night.

Farrow & Ball.. is this just a brand of paint for middle class tossers or is it actually worth the extra dosh?
