Tom Wilson: fined $5,000 for assaulting a star player.

NY Rangers: fined $250,000 for complaining about this ridiculous fine.

It’s because of stuff like that that I don’t watch this shit show anymore.

Happy to see that Canada is not doing badly in 14th place on the 2021 Press Freedom Index.

I never get tired of watching the movie The Game. I think I just love that he knows he’s in a game, but he doesn’t really know either.

Yesterday, CBC broadcasted the Rebellion episode on The Nature of Things. Interesting timing and interesting tone considering Biden making climate a priority again in the US, and Canada announcing new targets this week along with a fair amount of money for climate initiatives in the new budget. I'm glad to see this issue come to the forefront again, despite the pandemic!

Dear web,

No I don’t want to accept all cookies.

Just. Don’t.

Thanks.

I had to install Adobe Reader to sign a document. Now my laptop has Adobe cooties.

@pixelfed Is there a 24x24 icon for Pixelfed that can be used in social menus?

When Covid wears you down, you self-soothe by making cinnamon rolls.

Can Mastodon have an automatic light/dark theme mode, please pretty please?

It's too late to make Suez Canal jokes. That ship has sailed

I love that the NHL made a North division so all Canadian teams only play against Canadian teams for the entire season. I know it’s because of COVID and probably temporary, but deep down I really hope we keep it that way. I love it.

I love this so much. It perfectly expresses thoughts I’ve been having about the madness of human complexity, and how straightforward common sense is too often lacking.

That's all there is to it.”

I installed Microsoft Edge on my Mac yesterday to test something and was surprised to see that it uses an installer and the dreaded Microsoft Updater thingy. Also the app comes up full screen, hiding everything else. So not Mac-like. Apparently Microsoft is institutionally unable to make anything simple and self-contained. I uninstalled and cleaned up but now I feel like my laptop has cooties.
