If you find yourself confronted with the void ...

Instead of screaming into it ...

Why not whistle this little tune? ...

I like seeing my toots appear on the Federated timeline then disappear down it forever.

It's a bit like flushing the toilet.

You know when you look at someone's posts and you think 'What a dick', then you wonder if that's what people think of you when they look at your posts.

Hmmm ...

Often initial letters are capitalised, like IDK ...

but in the phrase "I don't know" only the I is capitalised, so surely it should be Idk ...

but then again maybe all lowercase is more pleasing to read, so should be idk.

Which is best?

There's only one way to find out:

I can't wait to finish The Man Who Fell to Earth so I can watch the again.

I remember being a bit baffled by the movie, but I don't remember much except yellow eyes so maybe I wasn't paying attention. It's like 3hrs long or something. I think I went into a trance from the beginning.

The book's good.

@lydiaconwell@mas.to I've always written it all lowercased.

idk

I think idk looks nicer. It's an informal text abbreviation.

It's hard to defend an institution like the BBC when it has failed the so often and for so long. And it has always been the mouthpiece of the establishment: pro-western foreign policy, pro-royal, etc.

If it turns into a service I'll never have to watch it again.

I'll wait for and/or to post articles on scrapping the TV license. I'm sure they'll have something worth reading.

So they're scrapping the and predictably bores who work for the are warning we will miss it when it's gone.

It's win-win for the right. With no license fee the BBC doesn't have to pretend to be remotely impartial and private companies can move in to profit more from it.

I read a couple of @TheCanary articles but I won't bother sharing because they're mostly tweets and say little of value.

I literally watch around 2 BBC programme PER YEAR. Other than that I avoid it!

And it doesn't even have any kind of satisfying ending. It just puts the characters in difficult situations so they are all in constant jeopardy and constantly backstabbing.

Then it has some real PG-movie style medieval technology that really removes all credibility. At one point a character builds a giant extendable ladder overnight!

It just has no focus, no character to root for, and everyone switches sides on a whim.

Terrible.

Has anyone seen 's Flesh and Blood?

It's a real stinker of a .

The writers just couldn't quite decide who the good guys were and it's quite confusing to watch. It doesn't really have a plot, just has things happening until it comes to an end.

The main problem is that everyone is kinda horrible, but I was still rooting for Rutger Hauer, but then by the end of the the writers decided to favour another shitbag character.

To listen to I prefer to plug the coaxial directly into my input socket on the side of my head.

Definitely the best quality sound.

I've seen the but the best thing about that is I can't remember anything about it, so I don't know what's going to happen.
