    That moment when you are genuinely amazed that Iceland DIDN'T lose the match.

    I mean, they didn't win either, but with the team they had to send out and the substitutions they were forced to make, I'll quite happily take a draw.

    TMW you're trying to look up 'Spectra' online to learn about this gadget and Google takes you to baby supplies.

    o_O

    G-Google... You are aware I'm a man, yes? And even if I weren't, what makes you think I'd be interested in baby supplies?

    TMW you're biting your tongue to keep from screaming obscenities and vainglorious challenges at Life's slings and arrows after having survived a weak volley.
    ...
    ...
    $#@% you, Life, I didn't like my car or my refrigerator anyway! That heating/electricity bill is penny-ante, too. LET'S GO! I'M RIGHT HERE!
    In all seriousness, if anyone knows why everything breaks around the holidays...Please publish that in a peer-reviewed journal so the public can be made aware.

    That moment when Iceland only need to draw their last match to stay third in group and hopefully have a second chance to qualify for the Euros through the playoffs.

    They're playing a rubbish team, so there's a reasonable chance they will.

    that moment when you and 1 other classmate have color names (my name is a color....) and your professor decides it would be clever to pair you two up

    Not the actual toilet! It was on the counter by the sinks. But I have five cents now. What annoys me is that when you turn it around, the bloke's head is upside down.

    TMW you realize that your Hungarian Mustache, while perfect is also horrible whenever you go to sip from a glass. *goes onto amazon to by straws*

    That moment when you are ridiculously confused about the rules for the Euro 2020 playoffs, so you go on UEFA's own website and discover that the playoffs are entirely based on the Nation's League, third place in group is completely irrelevant, and Iceland are already in the playoffs regardless of tonight's score.

    If I've read it right, anyway.

    That moment when you're watching a quiz show and there aren't enough hands in the world to adequately facepalm the level of ignorance displayed by the contestants.

    TMW you find a YouTube link explaining the origins of the 'Woman Screaming At Cat' meme.

    Know Your Meme is a bloody lifesaver, TBH. I'd put it right up there with TVTropes and Urban Dictionary.

    TMW the person in charge of students' wellbeing comes for their regular visit and knocks on the door of the Mystery Flatmate (the one no-one has met, the only one who didn't come to say hi when we all introduced ourselves, and consequently the only one not in the group chat - although admittedly I did see her once and learned her first name but she clearly didn't want to chat). She (the visitor) mentioned that we all wanted to meet her and got the response "No, I've got shit to do."

    Welp.

    That moment when you realise that your characters will have to write "slammed into a wall by an angry troll" in the campsite's accident book :superlaugh:

    And yes, I mean an actual troll, not the kind you get on the internet, just in case anyone is wondering.

    TMW you're having a long, frustrating dress shop, since there are upcoming Christmas meals. TMW you realise how lucky you are to have an outlet shop near where you normally live because most of the brands you buy are, at normal prices, bloody expensive. And TMW you finally find a lovely dress and are just about to click on it when you look more closely at the picture and realise "wait, why does it look weird in the front...oh, crap, that's from their maternity range".

    TMW you nearly put your dog through the washing machine. He kind of got gathered up with the bedsheets and deposited in the laundry basket before he started protesting. He's, uh, not very big.

    I have this image of your dog looking at you bemused, saying in dog language, "Fuck y'doin?"
