In case anyone is wondering, Neil Oliver is a an ~~anti-vax~~ pro-death, ~~climate change denying~~ anti-science conspiracy theorist. He made his reputation as an affable nature lover presenting a number of shows on the BBC, including the excellent Coast, but now has jumped to the right-wing ~~"news" channel~~ echo chamber GBN where he can spew bile totally unchallenged.

Fuck him, fuck his lies, fuck his demented viewpoint and fuck his attempts to drag the world down with him.

I read it as "chairman". I thought, "awww, adorable and anticapitalistic".

Doesn't help when they publish their pages as image files, like this one does.

I read that headline and thought it meant:

(Cost per Episode) = 2 × (Cost of Godzilla Movie) - $1

No, it's renewable. But... not in any practical timeframe.

Wrong again. The store owner is called Sofalings Chairmongersons Reclinerolinghamfords-Bedsington. Y'know, of the Stourbridge Reclinerolinghamfords-Bedsingtons. But they had to abbreviate. The store sells windchimes.

It feels like everyone has a story like this. I visited Osaka this one time and I was couldn't open the package that my lunch was in. This very ordinary looking salaryman approached me and without saying a word took, the package from me, ate it whole, then vomited it directly down my throat as an easily-digestible slurry fortified with immunity-boosting enzymes and developmentally-critical animo acids. He literally wouldn't stop.

Earlier this year, I did a last-minute trip to mainland Europe and I ended up using two sleeper trains: Rome-Vienna and Vienna-Amsterdam. I slept like a baby on both, and I can't being to explain the magic of lying in bed peeking through a blind at the countryside passing by outside, the strange shifts in gravity as the train rounds corners on mountain passes, and waking up in a new country, stepping out of your bedroom into the very centre of a thriving city. The costs were about €100 each, which isn't much more than a cheap hotel room.

I cannot recommend them enough.

 

These water fountains flow constantly with fresh drinking water for anyone to use and they are everywhere in Rome. Covering the spout with your finger forces the water out a hole on top, creating a arch of water at perfect 𝓼𝓵𝓾𝓻𝓹𝓲𝓷𝓰 height. The Romans were/are with us.

 

The apartment blocks - two of perhaps a hundred - are surrounded by open greenery, wide walkways and dense tram networks. Most of them have café bars, bookstores, grocery stores or the like on the ground level and loads of benches, play areas and exercise equipment dotted about. The place is rife with Third Places.

The remarkable thing about these is that, to the locals, they seem fairly unremarkable.

 

Does anyone know a way of calculating the amount of heating I need to maintain an average temperature in terms of kWh of heating per 24 hours? Ideally one taking into account weather conditions.

I have a pretty big Home Assistant setup which includes switches for individually controlling all the (electric) heaters in my home. I'm also using an electricity supplier that changes the amount they charge every 30 minutes to reflect supply and demand. Given these rates are published at least 24 hours in advance I can currently choose a number of hours to run the heaters per day and have an automation automatically select the cheapest periods. I'm paying less per kWh for heating than I would if I was using a gas boiler. Plus, it's all from renewables, so working out that number of hours is the next step.
