"Road Signs are generally not found in print"
In my experience they're always found in print. Very large print.

Look at it from Bezos' point of view - no matter how careful the employee screening there's bound to be someone involved in this launch with a relative who's been injured in an Amazon warehouse. That's a risk that has to be mitigated.
Putting Funk on board is nearly as good anti-sabotage insurance as taking a nun with a basket of kittens.

You've never eaten at a restaurant?
In most cases a restaurant patron just wants to eat a meal prepared by an expert and doesn't need to check out the kitchen, but if you ask nicely then a reasonable restaurant owner would normally allow any patron a quick backstage tour (and grant full access to any health inspector).

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!
This is a trick used by some fake banking sites to allow the victim to provide their (correct) credentials which are then tucked away for later malicious use. The victim is then sent to the real login page, enters their credentials again, and goes merrily on their way without knowing that anything is wrong.
The more paranoid among us ALWAYS enter the wrong password the first time. Why keep the hammer down on a live round?
Cursor jumping all over the screen? There's a simple solution for that - piano lessons from an old-school teacher who'll rap you on the knuckles with a ruler if you let your hands drop.
Turning off the touchpad is cheaper but not as much fun.
You don't need Windows to be bundled with a browser at all since it already has a package manager (of sorts) - the Microsoft Store.
If all the commonly-used browsers were made available through the Store then Microsoft could save themselves the trouble of developing their own and concentrate on more important stuff.
> Coffee ... cannot be consumed in the quantities required for refreshment.
It certainly can, but you might need to alternate coffee with water to prevent the "drink a pint and pee a quart" phenomenon from leaving your body entirely without moisture. (A pint is, of course, a perfectly reasonable size for a coffee mug.)
And there are things you can do with coffee to make it more palatable - Irish coffee is a lot nicer than Irish tea.
