As anti-brutality protests fill streets of American cities, netizens cram police app with K-Pop, airwaves with NWA

quote [ Police asked the public to upload videos of protesters via its iWatch Dallas mobile app. Instead, netizens flooded the service with videos of South Korean K-Pop performers. Police were forced to take down the app. ]

"On Saturday night, a mischief-maker broadcast over the frequency Chicago police were using for communications, blaring out the classic NWA track F*ck the police." I think some Sting would have been a funnier choice.

Calvin & Muad'Dib

quote [ I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. ]

Officially sanctioned (or at least accepted by) by Bill Watterson ('s publishers)- Calvin and Hobbes and Dune.

Ask SE: At last, it is time to answer the most important question in gaming history - Is Guybrush's pants falling down funny or not?

quote [ Ron: This is like the greatest scene ever. It's like the pinnacle of humour. It's an un-toppable moment. Tim: But did he pull his belt off in order to dig? ]

Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer. Two legends of computer game design, but there is one question they cannot, will not ever agree on. Is Guybrush Threepwood's trousers falling down funny?

Trump offers 'large sums' for exclusive access to coronavirus vaccine

quote [ German government tries to fight off aggressive takeover bid by US, say reports. Trump was doing everything to secure a vaccine against the coronavirus for the US, “but for the US only”. ]

Tagged as politics. Pretty clever, because while something like this is unlikely to succeed, it will play very well with the plebs at home

Ian McKellen’s Lord of the Rings set diaries

quote [ "To be within four feet of a Christopher Lee snarl is unsettling. I was glad he wasn’t wearing his fangs." ]

Just more propagandalf, but quite hobbit forming.

Apostrophe society shuts down because 'ignorance has won'

quote [ A society dedicated to preserving the correct use of the apostrophe has shut down because "ignorance has won".  Retired journalist John Richards, 96, started the Apostrophe Protection Society in 2001 to make sure the “much-abused” punctuation mark was being used correctly. But Mr Richards has now announced: “With regret I have to announce that, after some 18 years, I have decided to close the Apostrophe Protection Society. ]

That's that then. I could have spent all that time at school designing imaginary Star Wars computers games instead.
