This is actually the correct approach to listing PWAs, by the way. It's a web page, display in in a web browser.

Google's approach that involves an .apk file is bullshit.

Furthermore, the Windows Store ingests arbitrary pages with PWA support and lists them, the same way doing a Google search for them does.

The appearance of a PWA in the Windows Store is not some kind indicator of approval or safety.

This, like most internet problems, is an advertising infrastructure problem.

This isn't really Microsoft's problem; it's the web's.

Web browsers are designed to download and execute whatever a web pages's author tells it to.

Google Tag Manager is designed to let someone OTHER than a page's author to tell the browser what to do.

I was prepared to defend the idea that mandatory pledge is problematic but not actually racist.

But upon reading more about it, I learned that it exists to indoctrinate kids against any ideas that might arise from being around "new cultures."

Gotta keep America white and safe.

@freakazoid thank you for sharing. the more I learn about this the worse it gets

I was going to say that Bellamy's pledge is not actually emblematic of American ideals, but I just realized that, yes, it kind of is :(

Pledge of Allegiance author:

"every alien immigrant of inferior race erodes traditional values; pledging allegiance ensures that the distinctive principles of true Americanism will not perish as long as free, public education endures.'

Hot take: if you're not old enough to vote, you're not old enough to pledge allegiance.

"Do doctors normally accept their new cars while wearing white coats?"

As a Kona owner who is constantly discovering new crazy things it does, I assumed the white-coated dude was like James Bond's Q, there to show the guy in the vest how to use it.

“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, [..] or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.” - Justice Robert Jackson

Racist or not, I honestly can't believe the pledge of allegiance is still a thing, let alone observed in schools at all age levels.

@FiXato last year my wife decided she kinda wanted one, while we were at a mall, on her birthday.

This one had me torn for a little while.

I am saddened and frightened by how many people ignorantly put others at risk by not vaccinating, but that isn't enough to be in favor of forcibly injecting citizens with anything.

@FiXato as you play, the game lets you know when the other players die, and at the end you see how did in a leaderboard.

@FiXato every round is played against 99 other players. Massively multiplayer Tetris.

This is clearly just a trick to rid Earth of problematic comedians. Like the Golgafrinchan Ark ship in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

@tso 2) when I was in high school I got into an argument with some cops who were sent there to make sure kids knew not to under age drink but offered to give them rides home if they did no questions asked.
