  • Swedish county admins have in recent years put a high fee on a hobbyist’s metal detector permit. This has caused many detectorists to go underground. And when inevitably they find scientifically important things, they now daren’t hand them in. To those who contact me about this, I say “Hand your finds and their coordinates in anonymously at the County Admin’s front desk. Make it extremely clear that it’s not a bomb, preferably using clear plastic packaging.”
  • OK, done, 45 clearly has no redeeming qualities. I’m more interested now in what this says about the voters without whom he would be nothing. And what this says about the system of government that brought him to the White House.
  • Tiny tweeting voices are heard from the bird box demanding food. ❤
  • Duolingo just told me Dotykam każdej lodówki, I touch every fridge.
  • Natalie Imbruglia’s 1997 hit “Torn” deals frankly and courageously with post-partum labiaplasty.
  • The statue of the slave trader Edward Colston in Bristol is from 1895. It’s a piece of late Victorian commemoration, not anything to do with Colston’s own day around 1700. It should have gone down in 1945.

    I’ve heard of the “internet of things”, but this is the first I’ve heard of a bird box being on Twitter. 😀
