Hi! I'm a Global VAT Manager (boring career) and lapsed livestream DJ (due to post-Covid issues).
I'm also a Labour Town Councillor in , Staffordshire.
Serious Twitter addict so the withdrawal over the next few months is not going to be pretty.

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

To White Hall, and there I waited upon the King and Queen all dinner-time, in the Queen’s lodgings, she being in her white pinner and apron, like a woman with child; and she seemed handsomer plain so, than dressed. a fine thread on "IQ", collective vs individual wisdom and work, and other stuff. in my opinion IQ has been a profoundly destructive concept for humanity. foremost it has been wielded in the name of race science. more subtly but no less importantly, it has distorted the very bases of how we think about human capabilities, by generalizing and totalizing capability to a single value. (to an extent, this is what anything called a quotient *does*!)

OK from now on seals are just called "chonk otters" sorry I don't make the rules.

Personally I think the highlight would be that long-anticipated collaboration between Bonnie Langford and Napalm Death.
