Meanwhile in France, motorists are driving their cars into other motorists because they are blocking the route while protesting in favour of motorists.

What is it about being in a little protected metal box that makes people lose all humanity?

The detailed instructions for this card game are written like a programming language. One with line numbers and GOTOs :p

Oh, the Conservative MPs have a transferable vote to internally elect the PM, but I guess they think STV is too good for us plebs on the electorate 😔

Genius translation by the Libération:

«We're in the Brexshit», titre en une le tabloïd britannique The Sun aujourd'hui, qu'on pourrait tenter de traduire par «On est dans la merdEU».

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 🙄

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 👍
