I've had this open in a tab for a few days now:

BBC: Election Lexicon: Robin Hood tax, cockroaches and Heineken politician
(Mostly linked because it said we should have listened to Doctor Who. No, not the recent episode (we can only wish), but about cybermen. Although what with the 'Robin Hood tax' there could be a bit of a nod...)

Of course, our news is nothing compared to America:

WaPo: Sinkhole forms in front of Mar-a-Lago; metaphors pour in

Still, I wish our news would pay more attention to the environment. And how ~Strong and Stable Leadership~ also seems to equal screwing over said environment.

Please vote. It could help save the planet.

Relatable

I just found Libba Bray's second Diviners book on Books A Million for FOUR DOLLARS.

FOR A HARDCOVER.

FOUR. DOLLARS.

Needless to say, I snapped that RIGHT up, even though I am trying to save my money. <__< I'm a member with BAM, so I get free shipping, which means I only paid tax extra. And got a 600+ page book FOR FOUR DOLLARS.

*happy dance*

So, last week Promethia wrote about Knock Knock, which was great.

This week... Well, I've been trying to slowly re-boot my brain. This weekend is the first one where we've not been busy since - I'm not even sure. Anyway, it's not rebooted enough to actually write anything. I've been talking about it with Promethia, but since her brain is working, and mine is not, these are her thoughts. Roughly edited into different subjects areas.

Although TONIGHT I shall be sat in front of the TV, watching in real time and hopefully being able to flail shortly afterwards. :)

Anyway, what is under the cut is ALLLLL [personal profile] promethia_tenk. (Times like these it is VERY HANDY to hare your brain with someone else...)

Via my flist. I'm unsure how accurate it might be, but I thought I'd pass it on just in case:

"If you are staying on LJ, and its revised ToS make you uncomfortable, there is an escape clause. Paid users remain customers of the California company, which makes you exempt from all the Russian bits. All the US laws regarding freedom of speech, privacy (what we have left, anyway), protection for transformative works (i.e. fanwork), etc. would still stand and apply to you, as long you pay for it. (Financially, that is. Not any kind of metaphor.) If you're otherwise at-risk, and are financially able, this may be a prudent option."

Perspective...

General election 2017: Labour's draft manifesto at-a-glance

I get that some people don't like Corbyn. However this is very much like the US election - please vote strategically to STOP the right wing privatising the NHS, punishing the poor etc. People 'voting their conscience' helped Trump win...

(And yes, I am genuinely frightened at what Ms May will do to this country if she get the mandate she wants. The only positive is that Britain might become a cautionary tale helping to make the rest of the EU stronger, but I don't particularly *want* to live in a cautionary tale.)
