When people use the term snowflake unironically, just remember they're quoting Fight Club, a satire written by a gay man about how male fragility causes men to destroy themselves, resent society and become radicalized. and that Tyler Durden isnt the hero but a personification of the main character's deep insecurities, and that his snowflake speech is a dig at how fascists use dehumanizing language to breed loyalty from insecure people.

Hoping I can sleep through this flight and arrive somewhat concious in Dublin. It's always worse going this direction. My seatmate is impressively already dozing off and we're still only taxiing to the runway.

Here is a privacy thing that seems strange to me.

I buy something from an online store. The connection is https. Secure server. We protect your privacy, says the website. Great!

Once I've placed my order, they send complete details of my order to me by regular email. Unencrypted. The confirmation email includes my name, address, payment method, and the list of what I bought.

How is that protecting my privacy, ffs? And there is no way to opt out of this.

Is calling someone "fond of the drink" a euphemism for alcoholic in the US, or is it a just UK and Irish thing?

Is the EU trolling the UK?

The EU have nominated their new Trade Commissioner, it's Phil Hogan, from *Ireland*. Mr. Hogan will be responsible for negotiating any future trade deals between the EU and the UK (assuming Brexit happens).

Regarding future negotiations he re-iterated to-day the EU stance that nothing can proceed until the UK accepts the obligations in the Withdrawal Agreement.
