UKpol, BBC, bad puns
*YESS*! Sure, the BBC may have replaced current footage of PM BoJo laying a remembrance wreath upside-down with historical footage of him laying one the right way up and sure, this does raise the question of the BBC's impartiality - but I've just made the first wreath/Reith pun to be heard in Britain since 1926 and I'm super proud of myself!
I like to clarify why we don’t have a verification system like the #birdsite with the blue thingy next to your name.
We have plenty of methods to prove who you are on other platforms, we don’t need a badge for that 😉 Ofcourse you can use it however you like but this would be the reason, I’ll hope you’ll understand
Met a bloke tonight with a belt-drive bicycle (a BMC Hybrid). Had a bunch of funky tech. features, including a carbon fork with a pronounced J-turn, and a split seat-stay (for fitting the drivebelt).

"I Got Access to My Secret Consumer Score… Little-known companies are amassing your data — like food orders and Airbnb messages — and selling the analysis to clients"
"a company called Sift, whose proprietary scoring system tracks 16,000 factors… I got my file, and I found it shocking: More than 400 pages long, it contained all the messages I’d ever sent to hosts on Airbnb; years of Yelp delivery orders; a log of every time I’d opened the Coinbase app on my iPhone…"
Anybody want a shortwave reciever? Don't really want to make money out of it, mainly just want it to go to a good home.
It's an Icom IC-R70 and it's in London, if that helps!
(But, @Bobo_PK, I'm not quite convinced hostnamectl would accept a fork bomb as valid hostname syntax..)
