My daughter L listens to a particular bedtime story podcast in the same podcast app that I use, which carries a risk of her accidentally listening to a confusing and frequently obscene spoof agricultural podcast instead.
Any recommendations for an Android media player for a local directory of podcast mp3s?
There are dozens of fish or fish-like emoji (e.g., 🐟 🐠🎣🐡🦈🐬🐳🐋🐟.𓆝𓆟)
In fact, there are so many that, if I sent you a random one, a third party wouldn't have a good chance of guessing which one I'd sent.
This means we could adopt a new form of 2FA based on sending fish emoji

I book a blood donation appointment about every 3 months, and with very high probability something always seems to come up at the last minute to stop me: deadly plague, vaccine against deadly plague, donation centre shut down with 3 days notice, but most often a general cold (as this week). Do I cause more harm than good by postponing 90% of appointments with 1-2 days' notice?

Overnight, the Google Meet app reinstalled itself on my phone and I now have an "Account action required" notification for my work account which does nothing and can't be dismissed.
(Not that I'm complaining if sense has prevailed at Google HQ and Meet is being moved back out of the Gmail app where it was awkwardly wedged 6-12 months back, but still...)
Jokes aside, the 5 minutes I watched are pretty much exactly at my level of French comprehension...
“Why did the orange walk along the road?”
“I don't know.”
“Because he thought it was the pavement!”
I finished Two Spacesuits. It's touching!
Reading @leonardr's “Two Spacesuits” and enjoyed this bit of dialogue a lot.
Then six cubic feet of a steer manure/compost blend, to improve the soil atop the mound.
“I thought we were just here to get a battery,” I said.
“Since you’re here, you can help me with the heavy stuff,” said Dad.
“Dad, this is bullshit.”
“We call it steer manure.”
Computational dadfluencer. I once worked in “film” and it was weird.
