Just watched The Endless (2017). Making up for lost time movie-wise. Thought it was very good. Thought provoking but never slow.
Not much of a spoiler. If you saw this let me know what you think.

Looks like Theresa May might finally escape the worst job in the world.
To be fair to her, the EU and Ireland hold all the cards and they have given her nothing. Best to back out now on article 50. An embarrassing retreat is better than a complete capitulation. It's another Suez moment for the UK.
Her (2013) mild spoiler Show more
Just watched Her (2013). Wonderful film. Thoroughly enjoyed it. AI love but not all about AI or black mirror, etc.

Psychology’s Replication Crisis Is Running Out of Excuses
Still, the floor looks like it has been reached. And 50% is not that bad at this stage of the game. Enough to show there is a discipline there at the core of it.
Don’t blame the Irish: the Brexit chaos is all about England
There is more than a note of triumphalism from Irish commentators on #brexit and a false belief that brexiters are deluded or stupid. They are not. The UK had every right to expect a more flexible stance from the EU, but as in the financial crisis, the EU has only one gear: germanic punishment.
The UK will probably crash out with no deal and they probably should.

The quest to design an ethical social media platform – Jennifer Johnson on The Week
How lovely to see such a nice article on Mastodon and ethical design in The Week from the journalist that @laura introduced to Mastodon.
Fog on the River Suir leaving #Waterford on the train this morning. Hard to capture it but it's a really cool sight to see the vapours lifting off such a large body of water.
A work of fiction. A refugee from the world of twitter.
A believer in the value of honest debate, privacy and liberalism.
