Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Loving Zelda & Chill II. I just wish it was on YouTube Music as an actual album instead of a video! But this is the first time I’ve been happy YouTube can pull from YouTube videos to source music, as I can still listen in my preferred app on my phone. https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=rJlY1uKL87k&feature=share
It's real, and it's spectacular.
