Je n'ai pas la source de cette merveilleuse image mais elle est bien drôle.

and apparently the “juicers” (people who charge them) have to get the bikes back out before 7am which is not only an ungodly hour but also means they contribute to rush-hour traffic. And it sounds like the it has all the same problems as uberised jobs that your boss is a finicky inhuman computer and the company takes advantage of people underestimating their costs (increased electricty bill, fuel, wear-and-tear on car etc)

I just tried out the Lime electric scooter hire thingy. The app happily tells me my journey was “free of C02 emissions”, but when I got home I read about how they are charged. Apparently there is a network of Uber-style self-employed people who *drive* over *in their own cars* to pick them up and take them home to charge overnight. So my so-called environmentally friendly journey is just going to force someone else to do the same journey in the car to put the scooter back. What a joke!

Description de Doctor Who de France 4 : « Le Docteur est désormais une femme. Cela ne va pas l'empêcher de vivre de nouvelles aventures fantastiques à bord du Tardis ». Comme si être une femme était un handicape qu’elle doit surmonter 🙄

— J'ai un papier qui dit que ce logement est à moi, mais je n'en ai pas besoin.
— Ah ben moi j'ai besoin d'un logement, justement.
— Super, ben pour la moitié de ton salaire je te laisse dormir dedans sans appeler la police.
— D'accord... et il sera à moi au bout de combien de temps ?
— Jamais :D

Cool thing in Firefox that I only discovered recently is that you can press Ctrl+L and then type % to search for the name of an open tab. Very nice for people with too may tabs 👍

the Pixel 3 review from Buzzfeed that I shared from @rixx really is a pretty apt read and a good tech review, it ends with:

"This is a great phone. I highly recommend it. But it's no longer totally clear to me that the information systems we've built to help us navigate life are net beneficial to society. I mean, I think they are. But, Jesus. Jesus. What's happening to us?"

And that pretty much sums it all up, doesn't it?

Since I like history, I care about the @gnome project, and I love making people cringe with my voice, I started a podcast about the History of GNOME: bassi.io/category/history/podc

Cool comic by Ryan Estrada, one of my favorite comic artists, about the complexity of gender identity, identity in general and diversity.

Or maybe somebody could make an app with a button that makes it replay a recording of the phone number 🤔
