Plaid Cymru has asked the Welsh Assembly to support the Kurdish hunger strikers:
If the motion passes, Wales will be the first country to show official solidarity with them. But time is running out - one hunger striker has already died and the Newport guy is on day 94 of his protest so he's getting really ill.
UKpol, pubs Show more
Ahahaha I managed to get a #littlebitofpolitics into a review of a Wetherspoons pub:
"[W]hen management are next in the mood for lobbying, I suggest they lobby Cardiff City Council for a calmer road layout!"
Translation: "Don't tell me pedestrian access is outside the scope of a pub chain when you've been meddling in British politics for years."
(I reworded it about three times to keep it JUST apolitical-sounding enough to get through the Tripadvisor mods.)

Hey. In light of the Christchurch terrorism, and the "manifesto" from those responsible, have a thing: "The Oxygen of Amplification: Better Practices for Reporting on Extremists, Antagonists, and Manipulators"

One of the most awkward things about house-hunting has been calculating the orientation of the gardens. I'm fine with a small space, but I really want plenty of sun!
You wouldn't think it was that hard, but estate agents frequently get it wrong so you can't trust them or the brochures.
You can look on Google Earth/Google Maps but it's confusing and not always easy to get the right house.
You can get free compass apps for a mobile phone, but I've been staggered by how inaccurate they are.
But yesterday my mum brilliantly solved the problem by buying me an actual compass from an outdoorsy shop. I've already got obsessed with checking the compass directions of every place I go. Looking forward to trying it out during tomorrow's house-viewing!
I got tired/embarrassed of asking for cake so I gave up after a while and then before the event had even finished, the women who'd been hoarding the damn cake out of reach started stacking the plates and tipping all the uneaten cake onto one plate, presumably ready to throw away.
Why are baby-boomers so obsessed with stacking plates and so slow to actually share????
Like, you're in a circle and someone passes you the plate or whatever and you don't want any, so you pass it ONWARDS. You don't hand it back to the original offerer or just put it down where the only person who can reach it is you.
I was the youngest person there by over 20 years, so why was I the only one to get this?
Today I went to an event with tea and cake and literally nobody on my table got the concept of PASSING STUFF ROUND and the cake was in tiny pieces on a few plates so I had to keep asking and asking for people to pass me cake. I felt a bit greedy/rude but like: how did they not understand the basic concept of circulating serving plates? You learn it when you're a tiny child!
Hey, it's Pi day!
A couple of years ago I actually grew a pumpkin who's weight turned out to be pi
As Easter is coming up, I'd like to take a moment to say that bunnies are cute but also huge dickheads. They're rarely docile and cuddly and will absolutely destroy everything you love.
They live 10+ years, cost as much as a dog, and need a lot of time and attention. 75% of rabbits in the UK are neglected and many bought at Easter don't even make it to a year old.

Brexit, stockpiling Show more
I just ordered a year's supply of cat food. The supplier is American but I'm worried #Brexit will affect non-EU imports too.
Not sure how to tell my mum and dad that my purchases will be taking up even more space in their garage...they've only just found room for the 48 rolls of toilet paper and the two huge boxes of bird food.
This is a long shot, but has anyone on here bought Thrive cat treats? If so, can you tell me if the tube is cardboard like it seems to be in the pictures, or plastic?
(I really wish retailers were forced by law to tell you about their packaging before you buy.)
