    It’s pretty selfish of these guys to make people keep using iPhone 13.

    Worth a watch.. Patrick Boyle has produced a fair bit of reporting on China's economy.

    A bit of trivia. Back in the days people used to drink in lead cup, and they would get poisoned by it and fall into some sort of coma. Which is why the undertaker would bite the big toe to see if they were alive. Also the origin of the wake where people will stay up all night to see if they are still alive.

    They also used to link a bell on top of the coffin with a string that went inside the coffin. If they pulled the bell then they were "saved by the bell". Also the origin of graveyard shift.

    Spent too much time doing pub quizzes...
