Lawn Sprinklers!
The Passive Aggressive's weapon of choice! 🧐 My Aussie kids catch an iconic American yellow school bus here in Florida. One of the "neighbours" doesn't like the wear and tear on his grass, so he has programmed the front lawn sprinkler to come on 5 minutes before the bus comes, and switch off 3 minutes after it leaves. 😂

I am listening to the man behind me on the plane tell his seat buddy his entire personal, professional and family history.

And I am wearing noise-cancelling headphones.

The travel fatigue is really hitting hard today. Blurgh.

LEGO hot tip!

If you have troublesome pieces stuck together, you can try using a needle puller. It’s like a tiny jar gripper that’s perfect for dealing with small objects. They’re usually a few bucks for a 3 pack at craft stores.

(Brought to you by kid bringing me pieces they’ve tried to pry apart with their greasy little fingers)

My three days of wall to wall meetings have left me exhausted but with a contented feeling of having achieved something.

Libertarians attempting to do irony, but proposing a good idea instead:

(Good morning.)

So I play as Australian in Civ6 - because Aussie but also because they're a good fit for a science win (my preferred playstyle) which has always amused me.

Gathering Storm introduces climate change, and there's been no tweak to compensate for the Aussie perk to coastal cities now being a very very mixed blessing.

I thought this was a bad oversight, but I have now realised that getting screwed by global warming is actually more strayn than inventing WiFi and winning the space race.

I accidentally a Font Degooglifier:
git.occrp.org/libre/fonts-dego

I was sick and tired of having to manually degooglify fonts, so I made this. Seems to work. Handles both local files and URLs.

Perhaps somebody finds it useful.
