In Wales, when it's raining hard, we say 'Mae'n bwrw hen wragedd â ffyn', which translates to 'It's raining old ladies with sticks'.
In Afrikaans, if you're going to give someone what-for, you tell them 'Ek sal jou wys waar Dawid die wortels begrawe het!' which translates to 'I'll show you where David buried the carrots!'
What are some fun idioms from your language?
Today my sister's #bees in our garden decided to #swarm, that was a nice opportunity to catch a few pictures.
I tried to do an HDR but that one I'll post as a photofail...
So here's part of the swarm sitting in our apple tree. Luckily the trees in our garden attract the swarms and we don't have to chase them!

Is it just me or do we really not value #friendship in our culture?
Imagine someone saying "Oh I'm not taking that great job, because I'd have to leave all my friends behind."
That sounds even more insane than if someone said "I'm breaking up with my partner, to take a job on the other end of the world."
Why is that? Why is the end of a friendship completely accepted and shrugged off by saying "You're gonna find new friends"?
Why do people not fight for friendships?
Thank you #windows.
"Important updates need to be installed"
I didn't have time so I clicked "Remind me later"
Now there is no notification bar symbol for those oh so important updates... So now I could install those updates, but there is no prompt for it!
I bet, that it's gonna come up again when I'm doing something on my computer...
That car was an unguided missile.
The people who designed this shouldn't work in safety-critical applications ever again; whoever approved this design for the street should go to jail; the company should be sued to its knees.
If by age 35 you’re still a libertarian, you should really read *another* book.

the always sharp Corey Mohler (Existential Comics) has a neat summary:
« Watching Elon Musk seamlessly moving from "the free market solves everything" to "trade unions sow social division among classes" and "we need a watchdog to discredit lying journalists" is like watching capitalism decay into fascism in real time on twitter. »
