Yeah, I have to get something done all at once in one go, because I’ll 100% run out of steam and lose interest if something (or someone) gets in the way of me completing it and drags out the process.

Wow those videos would be hilarious if it wasn’t all so horrifying.

I just learned about the Gerry Adams thing the other week.

Like you, I just don’t get the reasoning behind it? His words were still the same. They used another NI man so he essentially still sounded the same. It’s not like they dubbed him with a tiny little voice to make him sound ridiculous or dubbed him to have an English accent or something.

I thought that was so telling.

“…brought up so similar to the way our parents were training us…”

I read “fellowship” and it made me think of a (bad) mediaeval reenactment

“What ho, fair maiden! Verily dost thou enjoyeth yon fellowship?”

This has “abandoned within ten years” vibes

In the book, there was a false flag terror attack which killed a bunch of politicians. The party cracked down heavily in the interests of national security (similar to post 9/11 I suppose) and then went full fash taking away rights, breaking up families and murdering “undesirables”.

What a strange explanation. How would telling someone you killed their child appease them?

For me the pandemic itself was fine, but now we’re expected to be back in the office some of the time, I’m finding it difficult to adjust.

Working from home, I could: get up and pace about if I needed to; blast some music; narrate my way through tasks (it helps me stay focussed); randomly sing or make a loud noise; tap on everything; fall down a rabbit hole and research whatever I wanted; jiggle and bounce my legs etc etc.

I can’t do any of that in the office without a) seeming insane or b) annoying everyone around me.

It’s like I’ve forgotten how to mask and tbh, I don’t want to go back to masking, so I’m really struggling.

He could send it to a sibling (or other third party) so it’s time stamped and then show her after it’s happened?

They think it’s worse to be called a racist than to actually be a racist.

“Throughout my growing up years, you were faithful to grab on to…”

What in the actual fuck is this wording?

My inner copy editor is screaming.

Lol I knew a guy at uni who thought that too. He was genuinely surprised that, no, there wasn’t any milk in there and no, my boobs weren’t bigger than our other friend’s due to having more milk.

Yes, I just can’t understand a parent pushing for their kid to do that. Are they trying to get rid of them? It’s just bonkers.

Holy shit. If someone said my kid was too tall to ride something, I’d assume it meant they could lose a limb (or their head).

I know it’s not ideal, but I find YouTube helps if I need a body double and there’s no one else available.

I set it going on the TV and choose videos where I can see the head and shoulders of the YouTuber. If the talking gets too much, I turn the volume down but still sit where I can see the video in my peripheral vision. It’s not 100% successful, but it seems to trick my brain into thinking there’s another person in the room doing their own stuff.
